Pub Quiz!

One activity that Andrew has gotten me really into is Pub Quiz. Pub Quiz or Trivia Night or whatever you want to call it is a huge quiz with questions ranging from science, literature and sports, to pop culture and music. It’s usually held at a bar of some sort, and people of all ages and backgrounds come together to answer questions and compete for ridiculous prizes.

Unfortunately, we’ve had some bad luck finding a place that works for us. We really loved our first Trivia Night, but few people did, so it was canceled after we’d been going for a few months. We tried a few others, but they either sucked or were canceled or it just didn’t work for us.

At long last, we may have found a place that works. We went last night, and were blown away by the number of people there for the game. The bar was huge and there were a ton of people there to play—in fact, they announced that if you intend to come and play, they’re no requiring reservations. Considering the half-hearted turnout we’ve experienced at other Trivia Nights, this was refreshing. The Quiz Master was fun and had a good personality. Plus, I’m not gonna lie: the barbecue chicken salad I had for dinner was the most amazing salad I think I’ve ever had. And that wins me over every time.

Here’s a few shots of our night:

The bar is a brewery, and I loved all the cool pipes and such that were on the ceiling, plus I have a love affair with skylights…

Our quiz master circling the masses. There were so many people playing that he had to announce the questions in different sections of the bar.

Our answer sheet. We got 21/30, which I’m pretty sure is our best score AND we weren’t in dead last, as we have been at many a pub quiz.

Someone is SOOOO TIRED of having his picture taken for my blog. Good thing he doesn’t actually read it too often! Hee hee! Love you, baby!

So, if these pictures have enticed you, you’re smart, you like yummy food, or you realize that I’m a fun girl to hang out with AND you live in the Sacramento area and want to come play with us, email me. Right now, it’s just the two of us, and teams can have six people. Big props if you’re a history buff or just know weird crap.
