The Bar is a Good Place to Be

Only 9 teams squared off this week at Pub Quiz, trying for that first week jackpot. 3 teams tied in round one, but that's when Blanca's At the Bar grabbed hold of the game with 9 in round two, and 9.5 in round 3. The other eight teams tried to stay close, but Blancas were the winners. However, they didn't take down the week one jackpot, so it will begin to grow.

Come on down to Santa Fe Basque on Wednesday, have a bite to eat, a drink or two, and test your wits against Fresno's best.

Jackpot nights always bring out the best in your. Or, the most competitive. Ten teams went for it, four teams won rounds, and in a fitting twist, it was tied at the end of the match. What are the odds? Alana is Satan and Trump: Because All Civilizations Eventually Come to an End faced off for one last question. Both missed it, but Trump was closest and took the prize. Is that a prediction for November?

Next week, the jackpot starts fresh. Come on down to Santa Fe Basque, have a bite to eat, a drink or two, and test your wits against Fresno's best.

We Will Remember

Another good week of Pub Quiz this last Wednesday. Eleven teams challenged their knowledge and each other over at the Santa Fe Basque. The game moved around, and four different teams won a round. The lead moved around just as much, and when it was all said and done, Never Forget 7-11 dispensed a 10 in round four and grabbed the win. However, they didn't snatch the winning chip, so next week it will be 50/50 odds on the jackpot.

We hope you'll join us at the Santa Fe Basque for Fresno's best pub quiz next week. Take your shot for the win and for the jackpot.

Last Week's Recap

Last week, 5 of the 7 teams playing scored above an 8 in round 1. Your hosts, Adam and Ed thought maybe we had been too easy on you all. After that, no team scored above a 7 in any round. So, things got a little tougher. Rabbits Holding Out for Ringo Star held on to the lead pretty well for the first three rounds, but the Fire Squids grabbed a share of the lead in round 3 and inked out enough in round 4 to win the night. However, they didn't pull the jackpot chip, so Wednesday there will be 2 red chips and the jackpot chip in the bag.

We'll see you Wednesday at the Santa Fe Basque.

Real Close But So Far

It was a fun night last Wednesday at Pub Quiz. Eleven teams squared off over at the Santa Fe Basque. I Bet the Republican Has Air Conditioning grabbed the lead early, and stayed in first place all night. In an interesting twist though, they never won a round due to time tie breakers. And, at the end of the game, we had a tie at the top, with Alana is Satan pulling into the top spot as well. After our tie breaker question, Alana is Satan was deemed the winner. However, they were not successful in pulling the jackpot chip, so that will begin to build.

Join us next Wednesday for another great game of Pub Quiz at the Santa Fe Basque.
