Binks is the Best

It was a nice week off. The US beat Mexico by a familiar score of 2-0 in men's soccer and Adam & Ed got to let their hair down.  We hope your time off was just as fun.

This week at Pub Quiz was a nice little game.  Insert Team Name Here was in first for the first 3 rounds, but all of those rounds were also ties.  In round 4, they came up a little short, and were leap frogged. by 88 Million Want Their Jar-Jar.  The 88 Million weren't able to pull the jackpot chip though, so that will keep rolling.

Join us next Wednesday for another great game at the Landmark.

Reproductive Rights for All Rabbits

Lately, we have started a lot of weeks at Pub Quiz with a round 1 tie. Sometimes, it carries into round 2.  This week, we had a 3 way tie after round 1, and a 3 way tie after round 2.  But in round 3, two of those teams dropped a point a point, and the Rabbits Conserving Water by Dry Humping slid into the lead all by themselves. It was the only round they won outright, but it was enough.  Then, they ground out enough points in round 4 to hold on for a victory.  However, they weren't productive enough to pull the winning chip, so the jackpot will begin to build.

You're going to have to wait for that building jackpot. Next week, THERE IS NO PUB QUIZ. That's right, on April 15th we'll be off due to a scheduling issue with the Landmark.  We hope your tax day treats you well, and we will see you on April 22nd.

They Had the Game on Lock Down

What a fun night we had at Pub Quiz this week. Round one started out sorta crazy, with 6 of our 16 teams all tied for first place. And no teams were more than 2 points away from the lead.  Jerry's Dire Straits won the round on the time tie break, and then they locked up the next two rounds, including a 10 point round 3.  You would think it was all over from there, but the Testosterabbits dug in, and won round 4. However, they came up a half point short of tying Jerry's Dire Straits.

Jerry's Dire Straits continued the beating of the night by pulling the jackpot chip.  The Testosterabbits took home the 2nd place prize.  So next week, we start all over with a fresh jackpot. We hope you'll come out & join us.

Angie's a Winner

We love our Wednesdays with you all. This week, 11 teams went at it. Angelina Jolie Is...Womb Raider jumped out to a two point lead in round 1, then gave up that lead in round 2. However, they reclaimed it in round 3 and hung on for the win.  But, they didn't pull the jackpot, so next week it's 1 blue & 2 reds.

We can't wait to test you all next Wednesday.

Did You Say that on Video?

This week's Pub Quiz was a little smaller, with only 12 teams turning out to take it to each other. The first two rounds came down to the song length tie breaker. But a strong round 3 helped one team jump ahead, and they were able to hold on for the final round.  That team was Some of My Favorite Students are Scandanavian.  This ended a two week run from the Killer Rabbits.  However, they weren't able to grab the first week jackpot, so that will begin to build.

We hope you'll come out next week to challenge yourselves, and all the other teams at Fresno Pub Quiz.  As always, teams 1-6, $5 a person.

Killer, Rabbits

This week at Pub Quiz we had 16 teams go at it and it was close all the way through.  The game included a few lead changes and our winning team managed a perfect 10 in round 4 to pull ahead by one half point.  Not only were The Killer Rabbits of Fresbanog fortunate enough to win, but they pulled the jackpot chip.  In case you don't remember, they actually won last week and pulled the jackpot chip. Pretty rare to have a team win jackpots back to back. A second place tie breaker was held between A Rolling Stone Gathers No Mas and We Pay Midgets to Go Up on Us, and We Pay was officially our 2nd place team on the night & took home that prize.

We hope everyone had a great time last night, and we hope you comeback next week for another fun chance to test your knowledge, relax with friends, and maybe win a little.
