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!

We had a fun night of SILENT Trivia despite a Dodger's loss in Game 1 of the World Series. While the Dodger's didn't walk away as winners, Team Plutonium sure did! They did so well, in fact, that they were only 1 answer away from having a completely perfect gaming - Doubling of points included! Hopefully we can see that perfect game come to fruition soon... Kudos to Quiztopher Walken for a solid night of trivia and ending in 2nd place. But the real fun of the night was determining 3rd place as multiple teams were neck and neck. Ultimately it would come down to Round 7 where Rif Rafn would win by just a couple points - congrats! I look forward to normal trivia next week, see you all there.

October typically means two things: Halloween and playoff baseball! We got our fill of both tonight as we went to silent trivia during the Dodger game, but the non-baseball folk seemed to really enjoy our spooky bonus round. The challenge was to take the letters from "Happy Halloween" and rearrange them in any way possible to make a new sentence. A tough challenge, for sure, but a few teams rose to the occasion. Both "Play a new hole", "Whale hole", "Yellow PP haha", and "Owl pee ahn yeh lap" were fine entries, but congrats to team We're Fine for their winning entry of "Naw, ho, leap!"

Every time we do a number based game, someone always asks me "Is it Price Is Right Rules?" I typically don't like to make things even harder on folks, but tonight's bonus round was begging for an added level of difficulty. The challenge was to guess how many pens were inside the quizmaster's backpack. Closest to the correct answer without going over wins! It was a riveting time as I slowly pulled 21 pens from the backpack and awarded the Diggle Bicks (who guessed 18) with the beer as well as the first place victory in the quiz!
