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 Diggle Bicks proved once again they were the top dogs at Grunions, but this time it was through their unsuspecting expertise in Richard Nixon.

"I did a book report on him in 3rd grade!"

You never know what useless knowledge will stick with you and lead to trivia greatness.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs may be over, but we still pulled off a special hockey themed physical challenge for our bonus round. No, we didn't shoot pucks at targets or anything like that. It was a faceoff competition to see who could most accurately drop a roller hockey puck from table high down to a target below. It turned out to be harder than it looks! Next time you're at a hockey game, make sure to give the linesmen a hand.

In honor of Father's Day, we had a special quizmaster in training tonight - my son Zephyr! Due to teams repeatedly not understanding the questions when he asked, Zephyr will unfortunately not be back next week.

Quiztopher Walkin took home the easy win due to their experience with their own kid. They were previously the only other team to bring a baby to Grunions so they were not thrown off at all by the presence of a child. They also took home some free beer in a blackjack themed drinking round. It was originally going to be a game of Sabacc (the game Han Solo played to win the Millenium Falcon), but our crowd was just not on that level of nerdom.

It's not often we get Sharknado as an answer in our quiz, but when we do I always love challenging teams to name the full title. Tonight, of course, being Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

Our bonus round was settled with a game of balance and grace as we timed contestants to see how fast they could walk across the room with a menu balanced atop their head. Drop the menu? You're out! Congrats to Agent Michale Scarn and his team Threat Level Midnight for taking home the beer!
