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!

This week of competition was so similar to last week, with the same three tops placing in the Top 3 just shuffling around their positions. Quiztopher Walken returned to play but only as a team of 1... He held on strong and made a valiant effort to place in the top 3, coming up just short of the tasks. We saw a lot of successful Double attempts, and some not so successful Hail Marys. It's lovely to see so many new faces that have become regulars, and I hope you keep coming back each week in pursuit of the top 3... Or the pitcher of beer during the Drinking Round Challenge. This week it went to Daddy after another round of Name That Tune? but Tru Dat and Zack Attack gave them a run for their money. And big thanks to We're Fine, Everything's Fine for the early Valentine's Day treat... my SweeTarts. <3

It was a cold and stormy night - unusual for the South Bay - but we didn't let that stop us from building a 6-team Trivia fort in the back part of Grunions. Daddy dominated the competition again, with Team Plutonium placing in the top 3 - neither of these came as a surprise. However, this week, We're Fine Everything's Fine was FINALLY able to crack the top 3 positions after many weeks of being OH so close. Special shout out to a rock hard Adam Levine's Nipples who won the Name That Tune! drinking round, winning every song we threw at them! While we missed a couple of regulars (I suspect Quiztopher Walken had their baby!?), it was nice to play with a couple new faces this week. Hope to see you again!

We had a packed house tonight with many former "newcomers" who I would now define as "regulars" - and it's so great to see all of you coming back each week! And a fun shout out to our large party of GGI's who had a hard time controlling their own shout outs... of the answers, that is! But they eventually reigned it in, just in time for Guess Who? which saw an array of points and broke up our 3-way tie. Kudos to Daddy for many successful Double attempts, which landed them the top prize for the evening! Team Plutonium wasn't far behind, and they managed to land in 2nd with half their team missing. And with no surprise, Diggle Bicks also landed in the top 3, just inching out Quiz Whalifa... But don't worry, Whalifa didn't go home empty-handed, as they won the Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament and earned themselves a pitcher of beer. Thanks to everyone who came out and we'll see you next week!
