With Easter in our rearview and Passover eating up our present, there was only one safe and responsible recourse: Seven rounds of KING TRIVIA. That’s right. Idle Hour isn’t taking the holidays off, not when it’s time to get down to quizness! 22 teams arrived in our barrel of fun, and we weren’t aiming to disappoint. 

After a fierce tie for two rounds, Kingbeez took a powerful lead in Round 3 and seemed poised to sweep. However Run DMT wasn’t about to them run away, so they clawed their way to within spitting distance. It was bound to be a fight, with nearly ten teams only points away. 

For our Drinking Round, we asked our teams how much they knew about garlic. As it turns out…quite a lot! We needed a tie-breaker to get past the first round, but using Price is Right rules always brings out the best kind of competitors. Quiz Kid Donnie Smith took the free shots and started plotting their comeback for the back half of the show. 

After Round 5, Kingbeez managed to hold onto their lead, but many teams were coming up fast. It looked like we would once again come down to the wire for our winner. 

Round 6 didn’t change the score much, though Camp Mohawk and Downtown Sasquatch continued a masterful rise through the ranks. It would come down to our final few points to decide a champion. 

As the grains in the hourglass ran out, three teams stood above the others (four if you count our secret 4th place prize): Kingbeez in first, Run DMT in second, and Downtown Sasquatch in third. Honorable mention to Camp Mohawk for continue their collection of our secret 4th prize!

Join us every Tuesday at 8pm for more trivia action.

Ooo this was a fun one! 

In the drinking round we learned that Something Dumb has a great sense of international weather and in round 7 we all learned that no one knows about the women being put on our quarters.

Thanks all! XO

There are few places in NoHo with a better evening adventure than Idle Hour come Tuesday Nights! We’ve got the best food, the best drinks, and the best trivia in town. That’s right: King Trivia! 26 teams arrived for a throw down, and they were not about to be disappointed. 

Of course the first round went to a massive tie, as these veterans knew the power of the double down early on. However, the newbie teams weren’t about to outdone by the old folk. Points began to fly as our fancy barrel-shaped bar became a full on brawl!

Camp Mohawk took an early lead in Round 2, but were trailed closely by It’s Quizness Time. With more than two dozen champs gunning for the top spot, how long would this lead hold out?

Mohawk managed to hold onto a tight lead, but ten teams were within striking distance the entire time. That led us into the Drinking Round with a question about National Road Map Day! Camp Mohawk, intent on earning the ire of every team, won the free shots as well! Unstoppable. 

Or so they thought…

Coming back into Round 5, we saw Camp Mohawk lose the lead to Downtown Sasquatch and Real Housewives, but soon it was a fierce tie for all top 4 spots! It would all come down to Round 7…and likely a tie-breaker to follow!

After the dust settled, we had TWO ties to break to learn our final winners. After a nail-biting few moments, we crowned Camp Mohawk our 4th place winner!

In the top seats, Downtown Sasquatch, Real Housewives of NoHo, and (winner of our Best Name of the Night) Let’s Get Down to Quizness to Defeat the Puns!

Don’t miss another night of our amazing show. Join us at Idle Hour every Tuesday at 8pm.
