How cosmic is it that National Batman Day should fall on a Tuesday?!? Tuesdays at 7:30pm is when Kilarney's Irish Pub holds its weekly King Trivia Pub Quiz! Imagine that! And this Quizmaster must say that the bat mask does indeed work, given that the contestants knew the actors, but they couldn't quite match them up to the batman pictured. Well, Tequila Mockingbird, did. They got them all in a Double-or-Nothing bid and won!
Speaking of Tequila Mockingbird, Kilarney's may need to invest in a sign for their table that reads, "Resident Champions". The TM's have been knocking them out of the park regularly and may have hit their peak with three, count 'em, THREE Double-or-Nothing wins last night! The first two were in rounds one and two and the third came in round five. Let's just say that TM trotted into the lead and stayed there for an astounding 79 point first place win!
Pain for the Poonswagglers, who Double-or-Nothing'd three times as well, but nose dived each time, finishing 6th out of seven places. Having been the high scorers previously, I think the Poonswagglers will have to do some strategy reassessment before next Tuesday.
The Divorcees came in second and newbie team Plan B took third place, with IFFY! following close behind, just brushing up against the winners circle, but always watching from the outside. (Sigh...) Newbies Casino Bound came in 5th, but had loads of fun doing it.
And one more first for this Quizmaster... All teams got the Guess Who on the first clue!
That's all, folks! And this bein' Kilarney's, remember...
Here's to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!
We're getting some crossover action from the L&C, as Blood, Bath & Beyond became the third team to come play on a Tuesday night here at Kilarney's. Other teams to make the switch include IFFY! and Ship It!. (I should actually include Stealth Texas, though he didn't stay for the duration due to an emergency call, but the time Quizmaster Lou found out, it was too late to remove him from the line up!)
Kilarney's teams that have established themselves firmly in their own right include Tequila Mockingbirds, Allcoballics, the Divorcees and the always effervescent Poonswagglers. Until next week players, I remain, humbly yours...
