It was days before St. Paddy’s day, and all through the pub, not a question was asked, except by this Bub. That’s right…it was TRIVIA TIME! 22 teams joined us for an exception evening of guessing and gabbing, with an absolutely packed house starting the big holiday party early. 

Our first few rounds were marked by an intense, 6-way tie at the top of the board, however we found our leader by Round Three: There’s Something About Putin!

As the questions kept flying by, Putin and Real Housewives of Noho became our neck-and-neck leaders, fighting for every point they could. Though not on a breakaway, they managed to hold the top two spots all the way to Round Six!

During our Drinking Round, we challenged our teams to name the number of words in Shakespeare’s Julius Caeser. With the closest guess There’s Something About Putin took the shots as well! They were on a roll…but could they hold their lead?

As always, it came down to the final round to see who would win all the marbles (or, in this case, gift cards). The teams through out everything they had, left it all on the court, and another three or four metaphors for playing a mean game of trivia. But, alas, there can only be three winners. 

Our top spots went to There’s Something About Putin, Real Housewives of Noho, and a surprise third from Kingbeez!

Join us every Tuesday at 8pm for more King Trivia.

There is nowhere better to ring in International Women’s Day than Idle Hour on a Tuesday Night. We had seven rounds of the best question-based bar game you could hope for: King Trivia! With 26 teams, endless appetizers, and perhaps too many tequila shots, we threw a party for the record books. 

The first few rounds were easy fair, with a massive tie clogging the top spot. As we pushed past the picture and theme rounds, a select group of challengers separated from the pack. Real Housewives of NoHo and Quiz on Your Face pushed out some mean doubles, and suddenly seemed to be stealing the show. However, this was as hungry a group as we’d ever seen, and nothing is certain until after the drinking round!

We challenged our teams with some International Women’s Day trivia, leading to Real Housewives earning free shots (with a close second to Hot Uncle Leo). Now all that was left was a battle royale toward the end of the show. 

Ace Tomato Company took advantage of a simpler connection round and catapulted into first place. But after Round six, Kingbeez stole the spotlight with a powerful double! It was truly anyone’s game as we went into the final round. It all came down to who had the most ice cream in their freezer. 

When the final scores arrived, we crowned our top three: In a HUGE upset, There’s Something About Putin took 1st! Kingbeez had second, and Dawgy Style hit third. 

Don’t miss another minute of the best trivia show in town. Join us at Idle Hour every Tuesday at 8PM.

It was a hot night in NoHo, and that was before we even started throwing down the HOTTEST trivia in town. That’s right. Idle Hour was alive with the fiery spirit of King Trivia! 22 teams arrived for a Battle Royale of the quizzical variety. 

We had some smarties in the room tonight, with our first three rounds leading to massive ties at the top of the board. It was looking like a difficult night to pick a winner…until Overeducated, Underinformed swept into the lead with a powerful grab in Guess Who. 

For our Drinking Round, we chose to celebrate National Peanut Butter Lovers Day and asked how many peanuts were needed to create enough peanut butter to fill a 12 oz jar. With an astoundingly close guess, Kingbeez grabbed the free shots! Would it be enough to secure another victory?

As we sped through our second half, Overeducated held onto their lead by the skin of their teeth, but a number of teams fought to unseat them from the throne. Hawt Dogs and Quiz Kid Donnie Smith threw out every answer they could manage, along with double downs and even a bid for some extra points (we did have a birthday in the room after all). In the end, it all came down to the final round. 

In the end, the experienced Overeducated, Underinformed delivered a crushing blow, securing their victory. They were followed by the excellent duo of Hawt Dogs (winner by tie-breaker) and Team Edward. 

Join us every Tuesday at 8pm for more King Trivia!
