Rain and cold can't keep the crowds away from the best trivia show in the valley. Idle Hour was ALIVE with eager quizness beavers hungry to chomp on some icy interrogatives. While only six teams entered the barrel-shaped gridiron, they brought nearly ten people a piece! It was a setting primed for a showdown, and that's exactly what we saw. 

Our leader, and ultimate winner, was the veteran trio of Algorithm and Blues. Armed with some healthy appetizers and a healthier appetite for domination, they threw down doubles like it was quitting time at the factory and they needed to start the weekend early. It created a lead that was nearly unreachable by only Round 4. 

It's Quizness Time and newcombers Cory & Kids battled it out for the leaderboard, followed by the electric collective of Santa's Side Piece. By the time the drinking round arrived, this QM expected to be mopping up teeth from this bitter rivalry. 

Our winner of the Drinking Round, guessing the location of the country's tallest Christmas Tree, was the creatively named team...Team! This liquid lubrication set them up for a powerful finish. 

When the dust settled in Round Seven, we had a tie to break between our two embattled rivals. With a narrow lead, Quizness Time took second place, followed by Cory & FriendsAlgorithm dominated and won out the day, taking home another grand prize. 

You can't miss another week of trivia action, so come on down to Idle Hour on Tuesday at 8PM. We'll save a seat for you.

What an incredible night at Idle Hour! Can you smell what's cooking? Because it's the holidays, and we were serving up some Candied Questions, Roasted Requests, and Trivia Turkey! 17 teams joined the fun at Idle Hour for seven rounds of the best trivia this side of the 101. 

Returning champions CHICKEN NUGGETS hoped to see their winning streak continue, but their competition was hungry to steal away that crown. 

Our first few rounds, as they often go, were ties on ties on ties. These were mostly veteran players and fearless newbies, so Doubles were flying left and right. It meant the leaderboard remained locked up tight, even while the scores bounced all over. 

As we finished the first course and took a break for a drinking round, three teams still held together in a lock for first place. We needed some difficult questions to break the tie. 

Kingbeez, no strangers to this particular show, came closest in our Drinking Round game and earned free shots. As it turns out, they were laced with KNOWLEDGE. While KB had been flirting with the leaderboard, they had yet to make a real move. That all changed in Round Five.

Newbies Burnt Corks saw their enviable run fall behind, and even the dog-powered Potato's Friends couldn't keep pace as local legends Snark Squad and Quizness Time earned the top two positions leading into the final showdown. 

When the dust settled, a shocking twist! Kingbeez had risen from the middle of the pack to take a dominant lead...and the whole enchilada! Snark Squad had a close second finish, with Quizness Time rounding out the third. 

You don't want to miss a moment of our show, so come on down to Idle Hour every Tuesday at 8PM.

Holy cow! Over one hundred people came back from Thanksgiving with only one thought on their minds: Dominate in King Trivia! 25 teams arrived in our barrel-shaped bar to throw down in a contest of champions, bringign with them all the fire and hunger you'd expect for a Tuedsay night NoHo crowd. 

With newbies and veterans champing at the bit to get started, this QM readied a salvo of trivial missiles and set to work giving these folks the show they deserved. 

Round One went down easy, with eight teams earning perfect scores. Soon, however, it became anyone's game. The leaderboard shifted faster than the gears in a Fast and Furious film. By the end of Round Four, our top ten were mere points apart. 

As this was the Third Night of Chanukah, we decided to hold a good ol' fashioned Dreidel-Off! Every team played in a bracket, whittling down the competition until only 5 remained. It was a test of endurance, with the longest spin winning the free shots! In the end, with an amazing score of 12.44 seconds, Quiz Kid Donnie Smith took home the drinks and accolades. 

Our second half separated the teams even more, with a few ill-advised doubles sending some fresh-faced teams toward the back of the pack. By the time we reached Round Seven, CHICKEN NUGGETS and Bean Brigade seemed destined for victory. But it's not over until it's over. 

Round Seven took everyone by surpise, and it came down to a tie-breaker and a single point of victory. Buttery Smooth Brains eked out a narrow lead over Cul De Sac Crew, and CHICKEN NUGGETS took the top spot from Danger Nights Crew (who were warned twice about Sloppy Steaks). 

You just had to be there to feel that energy...so don't miss out next time! King Trivia goes down every Tuesday night at 8PM, and we can't wait to see you.
