This Monday marked the halfway point of the 8-week Brownstone Trivia Tournament. So far, we have been pretty focused on each week’s shady questions, but since there weren’t any overtly sketchy* questions on Monday, we thought this would be a good time to give Brownstone props for:
Feeding our Minds and our pub quiz obsession. Walk-ins are now welcome to the Sunday and Monday trivia tournament nights, where in a new addition to the game, each week’s winning team gets $50 off of the night’s bill. Brownstone also offers Tuesday night Picture Trivia, so you can actually enjoy Brownstone trivia three nights in a row.
and Feeding our Stomachs. The food at Brownstone is pretty tasty–and the price is right, especially the ginormous $7 nachos:
Another thing Ben and the Brownstone staff do really well is finding tables and seats for every trivia player, no matter how crowded the bar seems upon arrival. Great job, all!
The standings, with 4 weeks to go:
1st place: Backstreet Boyeez
2nd place: Beer Makes Smart
3rd place: Grants & Co.
Backstreet Boyeez is pulling ahead in the standings, but every team’s lowest score will be dropped, so it’s still anyone’s game. It also appears that at least 3 teams have left the tournament (good for us).
Finally, a big shout out to the Baracktobers, who won the 5-point Skaboozled Bonus for drinking the most 42 Below cocktails per team player–a whopping 14 drinks for 2 people!
We’re looking forward to a good second half of the tournament!
*There was a little bit of shade over a question about the Air Force’s involvement in World War I…the U.S. Air Force as we know it was not formed as an independent military branch until 1947 (long after WWI), but its direct predecessor, the Aviation Section, U.S. Signal Corps, did send officers to battle in WWI. So we guess we’ll let it slide. For now.
