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!

Grunions was kind enough to welcome me as a guest quizmaster for Tuesday night trivia. This group came out swinging with every team doubling down in round 1. At least half the teams doubled down in rounds 2 and 3 as well. RIP Bill Paxton emerged from the pack after these early double down rounds. Starting in round 5, Quiztopher Walker doubles down 3 rounds in a row for a total of 60 late game points to win it with an impressive 92 point total. RIP Bill Paxton faltered and fell to 4th behind Team Plutonium and Team Daddy

R.I.P. Bill Paxton had the lead spot the entiiiiire game, but sometimes Trivia comes down to the final round and that's exactly what happened here. In a last-minute shuffle we had not one, not two, but THREE teams to successfully Double their points - allowing ALL of them to land in the top 3, knocking RIPBP out of their top spot. Hopefully they continue to join us in the coming weeks and fight for a position at the top. And huge thanks to everyone who participate in my What's That Smell? drinking round challenge. Who knew car air fresheners could be so awful!

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
