Quiz Info:

At our last quiz, the Prickly Pair came out on top. In 2nd were 'You Cant Handle the Trivia,' and in 3rd we had 'This is Becoming a Habit.' In 4th was my favorite team name of 'Bacon Baron and the Citrus Kid.' In 5th was 'One Brick' and in 6th were 'We're Drinking Beer But Our Pants Smell like Chardonnay.' Next up in 7th, 8th, and 9th was 'Tempered Expectations' 'Mile High Elephant Seals,' and 'Dances like Elaine.' In 10th was 'Ali and Kumar go to San Mateo,' and finally the 'Saltmates.' and finally 'The Novelists.' The Swingin' Door was packed to the brim but there's always extra and heated room in the back. Come early and bring your friends to trivia every Sunday.
