The last time we quizzed, the Maker Faire clogged the streets but the spillover into the bar was worth it. Team 'We Need a New Name' led from start to finish to win. In 2nd were the shorthanded but still dominating 'This is Becoming a Habit.' In 3rd due to the tiebreaker were 'The Prickly Pair,' followed by the the 4th place team 'Grease and Goo.' Team 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' took 5th and the 'Cleveland Warriors' and 'Pinky Lost Brain' rounded out the evening. Come check out our Pub Trivia every Sunday night at 7pm.
