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!

Well tonight was our biggest night of trivia to date, as we started out with a whopping 17 teams! And in the very first round alone, we had ELEVEN of those teams successfully Double their points!! And then in round 2, another TEN teams successfully Doubled... Round 3 was a struggle for everyone... but we picked up again in round 5 when SEVEN more teams Doubled up as we continued to whittle down to our top teams.

The top prize would eventually go to Kuddel Muddel with Team Plutonium not far behind in 2nd place. There was a tie for the 3rd place spot, and it came down to a Quiztopher Walken and B Team and a sports-realted question. While WQ walked away the successor, we learned that B Team WOULD have won had they just simply remembered to turn in their pen at the end of Round 7.... ah, never let the pen decide if you win or lose, folks!

Thanks to everyone, and I mean all 75 of you! for coming out tonight. See you all next week for more trivia!

We had many new, small teams tonight who put up great scores in the first half, but in the end it came down to our 3 regular teams fighting for the top spot. Tru Dat landed in their familiar 3rd place, with Quiztopher Walken in 2nd, and Team Plutonium taking home the top prize thanks to a riiiiiisky Double in Round 6 that paid off. If they hadn't Doubled, they would not have won the game!

While QW landed in 2nd overall, they DID win a pitcher of beer for their team by being the first to accurately solve a math problem using the proper Order of Operations... Otherwise known as Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally..... or is it My "Dumb" Aunt Sally? 😉

Also, big thanks to the awesome staff at Grunions for supplying their QuizMaster with a delicious cookie and even more delicious glass of wine! Love working with that lovely group of people!

We had quite the even start to the game, with no real front runners until we hit round 5, when 2 teams successfully Doubled their points... Then again when 4 teams Doubled their points, opening the point gap. But it all came down to the final round, where Go Cougs! barely inched out first place over Team Plutonium, with Daddy following closely behind in 3rd. And congrats to our winner of the Drinking Round Challenge who accurately guessed all the wild animal noises we played -- always a fun one!
