About Grunions Sports Bar & Grill

Grunions Sports Bar & Grill is a South Bay local landmark. It’s been a local’s favorite spot to watch any major (and even minor) sporting event while eating the best pub food around. It all started in 1974 when Grunions Sports Bar & Grill opened its doors in Manhattan Beach, CA. The mission then, as it is today, was to provide a place where people can go and enjoy great food and drinks while cheering on their favorite sports teams, in a comfortable (and family friendly) environment where everyone is treated like a regular even if it’s their first visit. Whether you live in the area or just visiting, we have what you are looking for…guaranteed!

The Other Bar Was Full took an early lead in this one, besting Quiz Whalifa 21-19 after two rounds. Quiz Whalifa, however, thoroughly dominated from there on out, doubling in rounds 3 and 5 to open up an almost insurmountable 24 point lead and eventually winning by 26.

The Other Bar Was Full failed in a double attempt in the final round, allowing Daddy to catch up and tie them, forcing a tiebreaker. Daddy won the tiebreaker to take second.

JB& T won the drinking round, most closely guessing the weight of the largest pumpkin ever recorded.

Thanks for the welcome Grunions! We had a great game with two great games going on tv. In the end Daddy's ability to double on boy bands and Shakespeare proved to be the deciding factor taking home first. Team Plutonium and R.I.P. Bill Paxton had a strong showing as well taking home second and third respectively.

We had another wild night of "first team to turn in their answer sheet each round gets to decide what every other team has to do!" This means the first team to turn in an answer sheet got a bonus point, then go to pick something silly as a challenge to other teams in order to gain THEIR bonus point. We saw twerking, we heard quacking, and we saw some pretty horrible dance moves. But overall it was a fun time by all!

Quiztopher Walken had Doubles in rounds 2 and 6 which would lead them to 1st place. Daddy decided not to partake in our silly bonus point antics and much to my chagrin they still ended up in 2nd place! 😉 And kudos to Quiz Whalifa for being the only team to get my No-Risk-Reward Bonus Option in Round 5 - and for landing in 3rd place!

We will have subsitute QuizMasters for the next 2 weeks - I'm sure you'll love them even more than you adore me. 😉
