QUIZ RECAP

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday we had fifteen teams come to throw down at Hyperion Public on Monday night. As always, the cream rises to the top, and the creamiest this week was Ship of Fools, with doubles in rounds 5 and 6. Squeezing just by Dead Weight for a solid second was 6 Dope Queens, who have not shown up on the leaderboards for some time. It was nice to see them smiling again.

For the drinking round, I decided to veer away from our usual musical drinking round and try something more fitting for the holiday. I wrote every team's names on a piece of paper and had a random person draw one from a hat. The team was Wayne Brady Bunch and they sent up team member Katherine. I instructed Katherine, in the spirit of altruism and giving that really defines Thanksgiving, that she would be the person to pick the winning drinking round team. Just like that, she'd select a group of strangers to get free drinks. She made her way around the room and eventually settled on future victors Ship of Fools (who at the time weren't winning yet), because they were so friendly to her as she walked by. They even offered to buy WBB an appetizer, too! It's not much, but we got to experience just a little bit of human kindness at the tail end of a two week period that has been rife with insanity. So go out there and be good, and do good.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

A small but spirited group of contenders showed up to battle it out at Hyperion Public on Monday night, and as the fires rage around Los Angeles, so do the fires in the hearts of our competitors. In the end, Maggie's Birthday eked out the win by a solitary point, with Oooo...chicken nuggets seriously right behind. Major props go to My Name is Max and this is my last night as host, for causing a lot of confusion among the teams. Everyone came up to me after round 2 and was very concerned that I might be leaving, which I then had to repeatedly deny for the rest of the night. So that was fun. Good to see that I'm cherished and valued at least.

It was a hot night at Hyperion Public as the teams competed in sweltering conditions for the grand trivia prize. Even despite a broken air conditioner, the players pulled out all the stops to show who really was the boss. Tom Cruise's Daddy Issues took an early lead and held on to it, smashing everyone with a solid 85. Dead Weight was not far behind, however, and took a confident second. Shoutout to Ship of Fools who was up to date on their California government and history (and also better at rock, paper scissors) and won the drinking round. Ultimately, the team of the night was My Name is Max and I'm a Republican, who made me say that revolting sentence every round. True trolls, you are.
