Not-so-Xtreme Team Trivia

I should already be in bed by now because it is a school night ... but I can't sleep. Last night I stayed up WAY too late (3am) for absolutely no good reason. Then, of course, I slept in this morning until 10:30 (as did Minnie, which was a miracle) and so now my schedule is all off.

We went to play Xtreme Team Trivia tonight on a new night and at a new place, Johnny's at 135th & Nieman. It wasn't a good sign when we walked in after 8pm when they were supposed to start, and there were about 8 people in the bar including us, the DJ and the bartenders. Once we got started with the rounds, there were 3 teams playing. Our new team name was The Stanley Nickels. The other two teams consisted of 3 "kids" who looked to be about 15-years-old and a team made of the bartenders and all of their other bartender friends who came in just to hang out, not work.

Well ... we were behind the entire night, which was frustrating. In the end, we lost (by only 15 points) to the "bartender" team. The 15-year-olds had left early on. I really don't think it was fair that the other team won. The prize is a gift card to the bar and qualification to go on to the final week. What are they going to do with a gift card to the bar where they already work and get free drinks and food!?!??!

I'm grumpy!

Pin It!

So you're saying you left our house on Sunday afternoon only to head over to Johnny's to play games all night? Maybe there isn't a big call for bar trivia on Sunday nights because the rest of the world knows that they have to get up and get to work the next morning. I suggest trying trivia on another night, closer to the end of the week to get better competition. Mom
