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!

Thus begins another season of league play at Grunions. Our regular teams show up every week regardless, but nobody could deny a clean slate at making the tournament of champions added an extra spark tonight. 

We gave away a round of beer in our bonus round with a friendly game of high/low using a random number generator on my phone. Each time I hit the button for a new number as they guessed if it would be higher or lower than the previous one until team Plutonium was the only one left with a perfect record and won the beer!

The Diggle Bicks came away with a narrow victory to win the first week of league play despite the quizmaster trying to actively jinx them. That's two weeks now that my hex has failed, but we'll have to wait another week if they can make it three weeks in a row.

It was a radical one tonight thanks mostly to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles connection round. Beer was awarded to the best celebrity impersonation and not surprisingly it was a Schwarzenegger "Get to da choppa!" that won the contest.

Congrats to the Diggle Bicks who showed what happens when the quizmaster teases you early on in the game... you blow away the competition and shut him up by beating out most teams by at least 20 points. Come back next week and we'll see if we get another team worthy of my reverse curse.

The Grunions trivia regulars are notorious critics of our final round. The topics are often too obscure to be sure you got enough to win, which is frustrating for any team close to taking home a prize. Tonight's cricket round was no exception as I received a fair amount of ribbing, but all was forgiven by the time I gave out the prizes.

A special shoutout to our Jewish team who not only won the game, but never fails to come up a new spin on their name based on current events. Congrats Syrjewse vs. Jewke on the win and the March Madness inspired name!
