About Robin Hood British Pub (Survey Slam)

Authentically British from the “draught” beers to the darts (not machines, but real darts and dartboards), to the homemade pink-and-yellow-checkered, marzipan-wrapped Battenburg cake that accompanies afternoon tea, Robin Hood British Pub has been a Valley home-away-from-home for relocated Brits for nearly 30 years. It has also been a faithful stand-in as a mini-visit to London for local Anglophiles craving homemade chicken curry pie or true fish ‘n chips.

Londoners Michael and Lorraine Williams began Robin Hood 30 years ago when they bought a run-down beer bar in Sherman Oaks and converted it into a casual place for brews and burgers. After a few years, they added British comfort foods to the menu and began making their own tartar sauce (it’s been getting rave reviews ever since) to accompany the house favorite, fish ‘n chips. Michael, a former pub professional in England, brought in classic draft British beers. An appreciative clientele took root and has been evolving ever since; newcomers and regulars, British and American, unite at Robin Hood in their love of good British food, drink, and camaraderie.

Christmas is two weeks away, but it came early for two talented teams at last night's Survey Slam.

Contestants answered survey topics ranging from least threatening baseball teams to non-hamburger based food chains and more.

After seven rounds of intense Survey Slamming, the swing between first and third place was three points -- it was anybody's game. But after successful 10 point wagers from LA 2 VA and Some Devil and an unsuccessful 1 pointer from This Mic Smells, we had our victors.

I've said it once and I'll say it again; wager wisely, but also live dangerously -- it'll pay off!

Thanks to all who played, and see everyone next time!

What better why to spend post-Thanksgiving, when we're full of trytophan and mind-numbing political arguments with our relatives than 8 rounds of Survey Slam?!

Thursday night's game provided a very tight race between a number of teams both new and old. For nearly 6 rounds, the difference between the top three spots was only 1 point! In other words -- this sucker was a nail-biter folks! And there were some VERY confident and successful wagers throughout the game, which made this gambling-phobe quite nervous, but impressed.

Congratulations to the winners Santa's Naughty Helpers and The Cowboys Suck (yes, they do) who walked away 15 and 10 dollars richer! We'll see you next week!

We're one week from Thanksgiving and the player's inside Robin Hood Pub were hungry for trivia!

This game was one for the record books -- full of drama and excitement!

For most of the game Steve Harvey's Mustache and Secret Agent Randy Beans led the way. After a raucous wager round, all teams lost points, except for Mustache, setting them up for a landslide victory. But after the found seven, Randy Beans pulled within two points, setting up a make or break round 8 for all teams.

The question? Name a novel that almost everyone reads at some point in school. The answer? To Kill A Mockingbird. The results...

Secret Agent Randy Beans pulled into first with a hefty 8-point wager --

David's Girls and What's Up tied for second place --

And the former first-placers, Steve Harvey's Mustache, after a 0-point wager, dropped to fourth. You hate to see it, but also, you kind of love to see it because of the DRAMA.

After the tie-breaking question, What's Up, the former fourth place team pulled into second.

What a game! See everyone in two weeks!
