January Trivia Recap / February Trivia Date Announced!

January Trivia at the Coronado, whew!

Give yourself a pat on the back if you made it to the show, because wow, what a great crowd, and what a night! Alex, Diana, and myself couldn’t have been more surprised and happy to see all of you–and so many new faces–on the patio! Thanks to everyone who formed teams on the fly, shared tables, and were just so nice to the Coronado staff and us while we worked to fit everyone in.

We had 20 teams and over 50 players, the biggest crowd we’ve ever hosted, and it was a cold night in Phoenix to boot!

Special thanks to The Klute who MC’d our Simpsons Haiku contest!
The winning poem was:

Crash Course Conducting
I call the big one Bitey
Springfield Mono-D’oh!

Those Damn Weener Kids came in 2nd place with 84 points.

  1. Ah shoot, didn’t realize you needed the haiku that quickly. Poet time, and all that.
