Year End is Good for Satan

Our last Pub Quiz of the year was 12/23 and we had a small, but good time. Alana is Satan had a very strong night, winning 3 of 4 rounds, and pulled the lucky jackpot chip. Fresnocity pulled in our 2nd place jackpot.

Remember, we're off this week, as Wednesday night is New Years Eve. And, we didn't think it would be wise to shift to another day again.  We return to our regular Wednesday night on January 7, 2015.  We hope to see you out en masse then.

If you'd like some extra trivia, our friends at Sequoia North Pub Quiz is on for 12/29, and probably 1/5 as well.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

After working some holiday magic, we secured another night of for Pub Quiz before our holiday break, and you all turned out in good fashion for what will be our 2nd to last of the year. It was the first night of a jackpot run, and we had thirteen teams trying to earn a little bit of scrilla for the holidays.  Four different round winners spread the holiday cheer, and we had a nice little tie breaker at the end. Yule Like Our Log guessed correctly about how many times Rockefeller Center had their Christmas Tree Lighting, leaving Riker's Island of Misfit Toys in 2nd.  They didn't have enough holiday magic to pull the jackpot chip though, so that starts to build. Maybe your team can grab that jackpot next week as we have our final Pub Quiz of the year on December 23rd.

Next TUESDAY, that's right, TUESDAY we'll have our final Pub Quiz of the Year. So, you can expect some more holiday themed questions and such. You can also bet that there will be some year in review related questions.  We hope you bring yourself, your out of town family & friends, and whoever else to Pub Quiz and help us have a packed house for the final of the year.

Last thing, our friends up at Sequoia North Pub Quiz still have it going on, and so if you want to tune up your team, hit them up next Monday, then join us on Tuesday.

You Never Know What You Get

Maybe it was the threat of the impending #hellastorm, traffic from Christmas Tree Lane or something else, but this week's Pub Quiz brought us a smallish, but dedicated crowd. That's okay, because it brought us a close game, that had some lead changes and confirmation that there is a new team to watch out for.  That's right, Pub Quiz is Like a Box of Chocolates played as a team of 4, won the first two rounds, dropped into a tie for the lead in round 3, but jumped back out for the win after round 4. This team sometimes has more players, and doesn't always use the same name, but they did win a jackpot back in the start of November and have been taking down rounds each week.  This week, after their strong performance, they pulled the jackpot chip so congratulations definitely go out them. Alana is Satan took down our 2nd place prize of their money back, which happens whenever the jackpot is drawn.

Next week the jackpot starts fresh, but that doesn't mean you should take the week off.  After, next week is the last Fresno Pub Quiz of the year!  Yep, we are off for the holidays after next Wednesday so you don't want to miss it.

Wake and Win

We were back on Wednesday night this week, and 12 teams hooked up for a great game. We had some perfect scored rounds, some lead changes, and a tough round in the mix.  What a game. After it all, the game was decided by a half point. Hey Hey Hey! It's Roofies! did not sleep on the game, but instead were the winner. However, they couldn't overcome the odds and pull the jackpot chip, so next week it will be 1 blue and 2 reds in the bag.

Last week we thanked you for your contribution to the Marjaree Mason Center in our pre-Thanksgiving game.  In addition, they thanked you with a comment on our facebook. In case you didn't see it, here it is, "Marjaree Mason Center thanks you for your contribution! Awesome work you're doing for domestic violence victims in Fresno County!"

Finally, if you want/need an extra trivia fix in your week, check out our friends over at Sequoia North Pub Quiz on Monday nights.
