A glorious evening in May out here in NoHo, and what could be finer than some trivia that’s divine-er? That’s right, we brought King Trivia to the masses for another outstanding show! National Escargot Day brought out all the champions, but only one could be crowned our winner of the night? Who would it be?

Twenty teams started the show with big dreams and bigger glasses of ice cold refreshment. When Round One came to a close, we only had two teams holding the lead: Drunkin’ Donuts and Open the Ice Cream Dog (Whoof). Surprisingly, neither team had doubled down, meaning the scoreboard was as tight as it’s ever been leaving the opening session. Round Two put a few more points on the board, as teams were more comfortable risking it all for the big win. Quiz Kid Donnie Smith, our returning champions, lingered only a point behind the top spot, eager to defend their title. 

Rounds Three saw a new dynasty rise to the top as Snark Squad and Old Fashioned Palomas took the top spots, only to see Snark Squad fall to Team Zuzu in Round Four! This was our most volatile game of King Trivia that Idle Hour had ever seen!

In our drinking round, we challenged the teams to determine the amount of snails consumed in France in a single year. NoHo Hank took the free shots with a close (but still not quite on the dot) guess, earning them the ire of the thirst patrons. 

Round 5 saw Palomas and Zuzu secure their lead, but Quiz Kid Donnie Smith was racing behind in third. With all top ten teams only points away from each other, this was going to be an insanely close finish!

Round Six saw Zuzu leapfrog the competition, but we ended Round Seven with a MASSIVE tie for second and third place. After a scrum to figure out the real winners, we finally settled our leaderboard. 

Team Zuzu took the top spot, followed by Old Fashioned Palomas and Adam’s the Best (who clearly won best name of the night)!

Dozens of ravished patrons journeyed all across Los Angeles to the barrel-shaped haven of NoHo—Idle Hour—for another fantastic journey into King Trivia! With the temperature dipping after a pre-summer heat wave, the air was ripe for a contest of champions (and the guests were primed for cool drinks and delicious treats). 

Wildly, we had a leader right out the gate in Round One. Quiz Kid Donnie Smith was the only team brave enough to throw a double, giving hem a sizable advantage moving into the rest of the game. 

Round after Round, Quiz Kid held their lead while other teams rose and fell. By the end of Round Four, Algorithm and Blues had jumped to second place, with Kill the Queen close behind. With only a few points separating all of our teams, we took a quick break to lubricate their minds with a little liquor. 

On this day in history, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz was first published, so we asked our teams to search in their photos for something that was either from the book or film, or something evocative of the franchise. Our winner, R.E.N., had an old halloween photo with an entire family dolled up in outstanding costumes! 

Back to the show with Round 5, and things were heating up. Finding this particular connection proved to be quite a challenge, but our teams weren’t about to go down without a fight. After a thorough thrashing, our leader board was shaken! Algorithm and Blues jumped to the top spot, Quiz Kid fell to second, and Diana Spencer’s Gifts took third! But would this new hierarchy last?

Another upset came after Round Six, with Quiz Kid regain and their lead and Algorithm dropping into third. Goat Rodeo climbed into striking distance in fourth place. We had a real ballgame on our hands, and it would all come down to the final round!

With everything on the line, Quiz Kid Donnie Smith took first place, Algorithm and Blues took second, and Diana Spencer’s Gifts took third. 

Come join us every Tuesday for more King Trivia!
