February 26 WOB Arlington Scores:Thuggin’ in the 5-Hole is Totes Allsome

Ok, the Olympics are finally over and it's time to move on. But what can we do in the time until Championship week and March Madness begin? The answer is simple: show up and play trivia with the PubGuys. Trust me, there is some big news on the horizon and if you're not following the PubGuys on all the major social media outlets, you certainly should be. While this seemingly endless lull of action nearly forces us to watch reruns of Murder, She Wrote in hopes of getting a little excitement injected into our lives, we must remain strong. This black hole of sports is almost over; I promise. We will survive, and we'll do it together. 

In the interim, you need to save up your $20 and join the PubGuys NCAA Tournament Challenge. The details will be posted shortly, but the gist is this. The cost is $20 per entry and you stand a great chance of winning some money back, all while having no prior knowledge of basketball or the teams in the tournament. I promise, it's that easy. Again, follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more.

We'll also be having a contest between the WOB-Arlington and WOB-SMU locations. That should be fun. 

 

Oh yeah, there was some trivia Wednesday night….

In what was a wild and crazy night of trivia, the team usually known as William Shatnerface returned under the alias Totes Magotes and stormed through the opening game to a win. The dangerous team of the Loyalty Thugs finished just a few points back for second place, narrowly edging out Just Plain 5-Hole. In the opening game, we learned that Sylvester Stallone played Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies, Gertrude Ederle was the first person to swim the Pacific Ocean, the US has had 6 Presidents with the first name Biff, James Bond was married to RuPaul, and RoboCop lead the Free French Resistance during WWII. Fascinating stuff…

The much anticipated Power Hour of PubGuys Trivia saw From the Ashes Rises the 5-Hole dominate and take home the grand prize. In a close battle for second place the Harold Ramis-Busters just squeezed by the long-awaited return of Dr. Acula. In Game 2, we learned that Paris is the capital of Croatia, the logo of GE was recently named after Larry Bird, Spuds MacKenzie was the first dog in space, and that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Sacramento Kings are two of the charter franchises in the NFL. There was also a very hotly-contested debate over the first woman ever in space: Oprah or Marie Curie. I think that one could go either way…

 

Thanks again to everyone for showing up for another awesome night of PubGuys Trivia at the World of Beer Arlington. Now, since you've been so good lately, here's another bonus question for you. Bring your answer to trivia next Wednesday and you'll be awarded one bonus point.

February 19 WOB Arlington Scores: Putin’s Stinky 5-Hole

We're well into week 2 of the Winter Olympics. yay.

This simply means only a few more days before this spare set of events, notice I didn't say sports, is over. If you're curious, yes, the PubGuys feel rather strongly about the differences between events and sports (see here). Simply put, if it has to be judged, it is an activity or event. There are several other nuances to it, but you get the picture. Curling – that's a sport. Biathlon – also a sport. Ice dancing – not a sport. I'm not diving into the argument of physical prowess or exertion right now (goodness knows we did that in the link above). I'm merely conveying our point of view that the PubGuys are very glad that the Winter Games are soon to be concluded. 

March Madness is right around the corner, and we're getting excited. First, if you aren't familiar, the PubGuys have a very special (and AWESOME) March Madness fantasy-style game. Sure, we'll go ahead and set up a bracket challenge like everyone else, and we might even give away a prize. But more importantly, we're looking forward to year 2 of the PubGuys March Madness Tournament Challenge. We are hoping to fill even more brackets this year. Look for details about the Tournament Challenge soon, or just ask your favorite neighborhood PubGuy. 

Onto the results from trivia. That's what you're here for after all. Right?

Game One turned out to be quite the battle as the team, Friday, We Aim for Canada's 5-Hole just managed to outlast The Sparkling Boobs. Finishing just outside the money were the teams Dave's Angels followed closely by My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't and Deadwrinkle. In the opening game, we learned that Prohibition began in 2004, Eddie Van Halen was the lead singer of AC/DC, and Harry Potter's death prompted the burning of effigies in British streets in 2013. 

The Power Hour marked the return of the Loyalty Thugs, playing under the alias All This Putin Stinks. Welcome back, and congrats. In their first night back in some time, they quickly returned to midseason form and dominated the competition. Finishing in the Ms. Congeniality spot was My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't just ahead of 5 Rings, 5 Holes, and an Olympic Dream (quite the underrated team name). The fun facts we learned in game number two included, Smokey Robinson's most famous band was apparently Robocop and the Pips, Reunion Tower is the tallest building in the US, London Bridge is also known as the "Gateway to Calcutta", and Charles Darwin was the author of 50 Shades of Grey. Interesting…

The Power Hour was pretty tough this week so you might consider studying up next week. But if you don't want to study (I don't blame you), I'll just offer up a bonus point. All you have to do is bring the answer to the question below to trivia next week and I'll give you a bonus point. See the Winter Olympics have me feeling all generous. 

 

Which iconic actor portrayed 7 characters in the 1979 film "The Man in the Santa Claus Suit"?

February 12 WOB Arlington Scores: Deadwrinkle Jerks with the 5-Hole

PubGuys Trivia

So what if the Olympics aren't quite turning out the way you wanted. There's always trivia!

I get it. You've been spending your days and nights watching reruns of previous Olympic games in order to prepare for the thrill and excitement of your favorite Winter Olympic event. The speed, the rush, the anticipation. All of that rolled into the Winter Olympics most exhilerating competition: ice dancing. 
If you're not a believer yet, it will only take about 15 seconds before the heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat action of ice dancing will have you hooked. 

And even if after watching countless hours of ice dancing, you're still not inspired, there's always cross-country skiing. The Winter Olympics give us a lot of things to bridge the gap between the Super Bowl and March Madness. Unfortunately, the most compelling storyline of these Olympic games has been the quest to find the culprit who farted on Bob Costas' pillow. Here's hoping Bob's eye herpes clears up soon so we can get back to concentrating on events like Nordic freestyle (that sounds dirty) and curling!
Now, onto the game!
In Game 1, the Deadwrinkle led from start to finish en route to their first ever win at PubGuys trivia. Admittedly, we were all very excited to see two of our favorite players take the top spot. Congrats to you both, and thanks for the valentines! There was a close race for second place as Cupid Aims for the 5-Hole just edged out My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't. In Game 1, we learned that Blondes Only Like Okra, Millard Filmore was JFK's Secretary of State, LBJ had surgery to remove a "magic bullet" from a naughty place, and you guys are really frightened by horror movies such as Home Alone and Free Willy. 

Game 2 came down to the wire as 4-Souls, 5-Holes and the Deadwrinkle were just edged out by April, Brian, and a Jerk. The Power Hour taught us that Baloo was a homeless eskimo in the Jungle Book, Carly Simon and Master P teamed up for You're so Vain, Socrates was born in Baltimore, and the first televised sport was American Gladiators. I'll admit, that one took me back a few years….. Ahh. Ice…..

Thanks to everyone for showing up at World of Beer Arlington. Bring some friends next week, mention or comment on this post, and we'll give you a bonus point.

January 22 WOB Arlington Scores: The Deutscher Named My Pants!

1 Jerk No Squirt

New time? No problem.

In our first night at a new time (7PM) at World of Beer in Arlington, it was clear that although we had a decent crowd, their brains had not been lubricated well enough to perform at a high level. Trust us, we know. The first game was challenging. We did that intentionally. We were testing you….. And, with the benefit of the PubGuys Survey question, we were able to find out how difficult you truly thought the opening game was.

If you aren't into comic books, the second round was clearly not for you. We leaned in the opening game that President Obama was responsible for England's break with the Roman Catholic Church, Stan Lee enjoys writing erotic Viking porn novels, and Betty Boop was modeled after Rosie O'Donnell. And of course, now every time you hear the lovely Snow White song, "Someday My Prince Will Come", you'll think of something horribly dirty.

Congratulations to Quiz in my Pants who just edged out Der Deutscher de Uno to take home the top spot.

In the Power Hour, things heated up a bit as most teams were stumped when questioned about "Gossip Girl". I seriously can't blame anyone for missing a question about that show. In fact, I honestly commend you. However, it is trivial and someone out there knows about this junk, so that's why we ask about it. In game two, we learned a lot of disgusting acronyms for Disney's EPCOT center. Some of my favorites (the fairly clean ones) are below. We also learned that Harare is the capital city of the African nation of Istanbul. Let that one sink in for a moment.

Team Name was able to separate themselves from the pack and take home the victory over Quiz in my Pants in the Power Hour.

 

 

Thanks to everyone for coming out. Let us know what you think of the new 7PM start time. Come out to the World of Beer Arlington early and have dinner with the PubGuys!

January 15 WOB Arlington Scores: Name the Wrinkle that Won’t Pull Out Mittens!

A rare image of Adam at work

Another excellent night of trivia at World of Beer in Arlington and fun was had by all! 

Several new teams arrived and picked up the game in quick fashion. As well, our usual hoard of regulars was on hand to engage in the festivities. To all the veterans out there, a new team is on the rise. If you haven't heard or heard of What the Hell is a Razzleberry?!, you will. They are loud, proud, and very feisty….just what we love in a trivia team. Not to mention, since it was National Hat Day, the World of Beer was holding a "Best Hat" contest. Richard from What the Hell is a Razzleberry?! took home the crown…well, not a crown really, it was a sailor's hat. You get the idea.

Game one was a tight race to the finish as two weekly favorites, the Kitten Mittens and My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't fought to the death. Ok, so no one was actually harmed at PubGuys Trivia, that was just for dramatic effect. New team, TJC made their presence and trivia prowess known right out of the gate strong performances in Rounds 1 & 2. Watch out trivia junkies, this is another team to watch out for. In game 1, we learned that an alarmingly high number of people know that Manhattan-style clam chowder is red, although that is not because it is made with the blood of homeless people (yikes!). And of course, we learned, or revisited the fact that yes, Ruben Studdard is, in fact, the Biggest Loser. 

In Game two, it was a very close finish as weekly contenders Team Name just eeked past Deadwrinkle. If you haven't been paying attention, Deadwrinkle has been on quite a tear lately. They are probably two of the smartest people in the bar, and easily the nicest. When they get on a roll, it's fun to watch. The Dallas Derby Devils made a triumphant return to trivia after several weeks off, and TJC was right in the middle of things once again. In the Power Hour of PubGuys Trivia, we learned that Amelia Earhart disappeared while trying to drive to the grocery store, Guatemala borders Denmark to the south, enchiladas are apparently a breakfast treat in Germany, and the miller's daughter promised to do unspeakably awful (read:awesome) things to Rumpelstiltskin in exchange for his help. 

 

Thanks to everyone for coming out. Don't forget, next week we start up at a new time: 7PM. So set your alarms and get to the World of Beer Arlington early and have dinner with the PubGuys!

November 13 WOB Arlington Scores: Dave & William’s Team Bar

William Shatnerface

Another marvelous night in the wilds of South Arlington! 

Trivia regulars and favorites of ours (press Submit, dammit!) Dave's Angels were up to their old tricks and scored marvelously well in the first game while simultaneously celebrating 50 unique beers courtesy of The World of Beer Loyalty Program (check it out and join!). Bar came in a pretty close second!

In the second game, last week's big winners William Shatnerface took honors again and grabbed the 1st place winners gift card along with some nifty stuff from brand new local Ft. Worth brewery Wahoo! (Drink it! Yell it!). Team Name grabbed bridesmaid honors in the second game.

Thanks everyone!

See you next week at World of Beer in Arlington!

October 30 WOB Arlington Scores: Lesbian Archer Comes with Bill’s Liver

Lesbian Barbie Throwback

Once, a long, long time ago (well, last week) in a land far, far away (ok, so Arlington), nine teams gathered together to compete for the most coveted prize in all the land – The WOB Cup! This prize is so coveted that teams would gather together weeks in advance to plan strategies and manufacture diversions to distract the other teams…

who am I kidding?
It was just another marvelous night at the World of Beer in Arlington with some kick-ass players in house vying for their weekly fix of WOBBucks. It was a good time!

Lesbian Barbie came out of the closet strong and kept her nose, but only barely, out in front of newcomers Team Archer. Team Name Minus One held their own and finished a strong third, but out of the money. In the second game, it was all Bad Boys William Shatnerface fending off all comers with a strong, strong showing. My Liver's OK took second place in their first showing in months. Welcome back!

 

Here's our playlist from the game, too. Enjoy.

October 23 WOB Arlington Scores: Multiple Brews and Loyalty Pants

The World Series has begun, but even it couldn't compete with the incredible awesomeness that is PubGuys Trivia! Boston Red Sox may have beat the piss-tar out of the St. Louis Cardinals (8-1 if you didn't already know), but at World of Beer in Arlington, it was much tighter and far, far, far more exciting.

Multiple Scorgasms came out on top in the first game barely beating out Quizz in My Pants.

In the second game, it was even more tight and more thrilling watching The Brews put paid to the Loyalty Thugs…but only just.

Thanks all! See you next week.

October 16 WOB Arlington Scores: Brimley and Diabetes versus the 5 Stool Softeners

Viva La 5-Hole

Well, hey there strangers! No, just kidding really. Finally, at long last, I'm posting some scores. Perhaps I'll find some time to go back and enter the past scores I'm been too busy  lazy to enter. The game night was brilliant, as most game nights are at the World of Beer in Arlington. Good teams, good beer, good folks and, if I do say so myself, the best darned live trivia in all of Texas. That's correct, you read it here – we're better than all the others. If you don't believe me, come out and play with us – you'll have a good time because "Win or Lose, you're there for the booze" anyway. Right? Right!

Congratulations to Viva La 5-Hole for grabbing top honors in the first game while 2/3 of the Bar Stool Softeners managed to scoop up second place, one point ahead of We Like Our Beers Like We Like our Violence and only one point behind Viva La 5-Hole. Well done.

In the second game, once again it was pretty tight with the top two teams having to go to a tie-breaker. Bar Stool Softeners (well, 2/3 of them anyway) came in second, but only because Wilfred Brimley & the Diabetes Gang knew their 80s music just a tad better turning in 4 our of 10 to Bar Stool Softeners 3 out of 10. Tense times, but Wilfred Brimley & the Diabetes Gang pulled it out in the end and took home top honors for the game.

We would like to remind you that if we believe you're cheating, you're not going to win. That's the bare truth. So, keep your phones tucked away so there's no confusion with either us, or the perception of cheating to the other players. We don't want any hard feelings, sore losers or cheating winners.
