Tonight's trivia was a blast! We had 17 teams with not an open seat in the house! With team names like The Christian Mingles, Midnight Powerwalk and Law School Dropouts, how could you not have a fun time?!

Teams did an amazing job tonight - a very dedicated and knowledgable group! The knots round turned out to be a strong area for most teams - woo! I wish I knew knot education like the teams did tonight!

The connection round was a toughie for most, but the teams who figured out the bridges connection were feeling great after successfully discovering the common theme.

The drinking round was thoroughly entertaining when the underdogs (The Christian Mingles) came out on top and were awarded tequila shots! Congrats!

I was able to mingle with a lot of the teams tonight - which I love! Tons of fun locals and some out of towners. And let's not forget the cute pups that made an appearance - Bunny and Shady!

Shoutout to the two teams from Texas (my home state!) I love finding fellow Texans in California.

Overall, it was a great night of people, trivia and music! The Idol Hour staff was incredible - per usual! 🙂

Another amazing night at Idle Hour in the bag. If you decided to stay home this Tuesday, you made a wild mistake. The drinks were flying and appetizers were sizzling as 20 teams arrived to duke it out, trivia style. We had seven rounds to sort out our differences, and these folks came to play. 

In the early rounds, It's Quizness Time set themselves apart with some careful double downs. They weren't alone. All Too Unwell and Team Turpentine saw the prize at the end of the tunnel and drove hard for victory. Yet there could only be one, and so the games continued. 

During Round 4, some eager beavers saw their dreams shatter as they leapt at answers that, sadly, just didn't connect with the actual answer. Might Leave Early were tempted to live up to their name, but they managed to hold on a little longer (they had a baby at home and a babysitter ready to snatch some overtime). 

Our drinking round was epic, paying homage to National Butter Day. Teams had to guess neither the weight nor height of the world's largest butter sculpture, but rather...the calorie count! All Too Unwell came the closest and won the free drinks!

As we sprinted toward the finish, the leaderboard become a game of musical chairs. By Round 7, almost ten teams were within spitting distance of one another! It all came down to Space Jam knowledge. 

In the end, Marvin the Martian sent teams packing (he was the ref, not on the Tune Squad), and suddenly we had a real nailbiter. One team approached this QM, sadly leaving early, and wanted to know if they had even scored well. After examining their answers, we told them they might want to stick around. 

At the buzzer, we saw Quizness Time snatch the top spot, with Gonzo's Hot Chicken Wife and Snark Squad rounding out the leader board. 

If you're going anywhere else on Tuesday, you're missing the best trivia in the Valley. We'll see you at 8PM next time!

QUIZ RECAP

If you were anywhere else than Idle Hour this Tuesday night, you missed out on one of the greatest trivia shows in history. 

18 teams jumped headfirst into the murkey, prize-laden waters of King Trivia, hoping to snag a sweet prize in our first show since Daylight Savings. You'd think energy would be low with so many people confronting the time change, but this was anything but a lethargic show. 

We had TWO dogs...'nuff said. 

Returning champs met with newbie passersby to form a gridiron of epic proportions. Just a single round in and we had an eight-way tie of double trouble teams. And then two rivals decided to leap away from the competition. 

Quiz Kid Donnie Smith and Sidehug Improv brought large teams to bear, and they were playing for keeps. Each round, these two well-oiled machines cranked out top-notch trivia knowledge.  They were so on the money, this QM had to do some sneaky walk bys to ensure there was no funny business. As it turns out, these were just some smart cookies. 

By the time we reached the Drinking Round, it seemed like our top two spots were already locked in. 

For the free drinks, we invited the teams to show off a photo from their phone of a celebrity. The winner (chosen by Idle Hour's own Lila) was Kingbeez and a picture of Always Sunny's Glen Howerton! Those drinks kept the team happy...and started a seismic shift in the game. 

By the end of Round 5, we had a dedicated leader with Quiz Kid. But those doubles slowed down, and now the lower ranking teams clawed their way back toward the top. By the time we reached Round seven, the top ten were within spitting distance of the grand prize. 

Our List Round proved the ultimate challenge, with only 9 questions separating the winners and...not winners. Sidehug earned a solid third place, with Quiz Kid only one point ahead. But it was a hail mary double down by Raystar Woyco that jumped them all the way into first place!

You don't want to miss another chance at glory here at Idle Hour. Bring your friends, bring your enemies, bring your dogs! Just make sure you're here Tuesdays at 8pm, because your rivals already reserved the front table.
