Trivia Recap – Sept. 1, 2016 – Wurst

Four ‘Pods visited The Wurst Bar for our regular trivia night Wednesday for a hit supplied by Stacy. The atmosphere was a bit more celebratory than usual, with a large crowd gathered in the oversized booth next to us for the birthday of Hamad, who had helium balloons purchased for him. Dang it, I want some helium balloons! But since anyone who knows me knows I would just puncture the balloons to suck the helium out so as to talk funny? They know not to waste their money! Just cut out the middleman and bring me the helium machine, lol! Anyway, happy birthday after the fact, Hamad! Their “gift” was to win the first place prize in game two, which was courtesy of our conservative wagering. You’re welcome! Anyway, the abbreviated questions…

Final: Music

And here’s where that audio clue from the previous game kicked in. But since we never, ever, ever, get grammy questions right? Let’s say we were caught between the moon and New York City too much to wager full points. Still managed to finish third. That’s all, folks, I have to go to to work! I will be on the “hunt” again tonight for trivia glory, however, look for a recap Friday morning. Go Pods!
