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!

Guest Quizmaster Jo here! I had a great time with this lively, passionate group. Early in the game, several teams risked a double down. Some ended up with a goose egg, but Daddy's risk paid off. They took the lead right out of the gate, and stayed there the rest of the night! The drinking round involved shouting out guesses for Paul McCartney's middle name until someone finally landed on the right one -- Paul!

Four teams came out of the gates swinging, successfully Doubling in Round 1 and setting the tone for the evening. From there, we had at LEAST 1 team successfully Double each round thereafter, keeping the competition strong. Round 6 was an important round as many teams needed to Double in attempt to land top 3.... And despite the best efforts of our regular teams, it was newcomer Raft Daddies that squashed the competition and took home the first place prize! Kudos to our winners and great job to everyone who participated in the Bubble Gum Circumference Challenge... Who knew blowing a bubble could be so hard?!

After a couple weeks off for the holidays, it was great to have trivia back at Grunions in the New Year! The usual 3 suspects took home the top prizes, but we also had many new teams this week.... Say My Name and Kat Gods were some of my faves and I hope to see your fun spirit back next week!

Kudos to Quiztopher Walken for winning the drinking round by giving us Donald Trump's New Years Resolution: "To Lose Some Weight (Weight=68,000 Mexicans)." Honorable mention goes to "learn Spanish" and also "to speak in complete sentences".

And one final, huge congrats to Diggle Bicks for landing in 1st place as their honorable Team Captain (and one of my favorite players!) takes off to San Francisco for a new job. You will be missed - and I hope your team continues to come to trivia despite your absence!!!
