That Jackpot Win Will Buy a Lot of Broccoli

Another good night at Pub Quiz this week. Thirteen teams duked it out, and Britney Spears? Dammit, I Studied Broccoli Spears won it all.  They also pulled the jackpot chip, taking home the big prize.  We also had a 3 way tie for second place, with The Real Cold Housewives of Atlanta winning the 2nd place prize on a tiebreaker question.

In First Place with 875 points! was drawn for the round two topics, and here's what they chose:
Will Clark
Tom Savini
Cinderella Man (movie)
Gladiator (movie)
Amy Winehouse Songs
Slasher films from the 80's
Wrestlemania III
Martin Luther
Internet Memes
San Francisco 49ers (2004 - present)
To Kill A Mockingbird (movie)
Night of the Living Dead (1968 films)

Next week the jackpot starts building again, but your team could take it down if you study up.

Finally, if you want to keep sharp, check out Sequoia North Pub Quiz on Monday night.  It's the 1 year anniversary and they'll be doing a bunch of give aways.

What Will Keep Us Together Then?

Spoiler Alert were back to using that moniker, playing this time as Spoiler Alert: Love Won't Keep Us Together and winning the night. They did it by a first round tie, a second round win and then they hung on for the final two rounds. The game ended up close, with a one point win.  But, the jackpot was not pulled, once again, and so next week it's 50/50 odds.

Another team got their first time picking topics, as The Suicidal Fetus was drawn for next week's round two topics.  Here's what they came up with:
Characters from the Buffyverse (tv only)
Obstetric Procedures
Heart Medicines
Discography of Britney Spears
Gourmet Cheese
Star Wars Aliens
Theater Lighting
CES 2014
History of Gay Marriage
The Beatles
Films of Leonardo DiCaprio
Homeland (tv show)
Celebrity Couples
Bravo Network

Remember, next week is 50/50 odds, so study up and be ready.  Also, if you want to keep your brain sharp, check out Sequoia North Pub Quiz.

Artic Swirlies Are No Fun

We've never had a team win all four rounds at Pub Quiz.  This week, Polar Vortex or Arctic Swirlie came super close. They were in a round 1 tie breaker, but were farther away on song length time. Then they won the next 3 rounds of the night and finished 3.5 points ahead of the rest of the crowd.  But, their luck ended there as they didn't pull the jackpot chip.  So, that starts our jackpot growing.

Our randomly drawn team for round 2 topics was Fresnocity, and here's what they picked for you to study:
Disneyland Rides
Types of Kale
Bobby Sherman songs
Star Trek the original series
actors from the recent Linda Lovelace movie
Black Sabbath
Skins - UK version
Les Miserables
Pink Floyd
Superman - all media
The Tudor dynasty
Ann Margaret movie Bye Bye Birdie
Marvel cinematic universe
Mary Poppins - Disney movie

Finally, next Wednesday is our 4th anniversary of doing Pub Quiz.  We're thankful that you've stuck by us, and helped bring a fun night to Fresno.  Along with it being our 4th anniversary, it will also be the 201st game of Pub Quiz (that includes our games & all our guest hosts)!  201 games!   We'll be celebrating next week and hope you'll come join us.
