PUB TRIVIA FUN!
The summer season is usually a slow, laid back time of year for the bar business, especially in August. Lots of vacations are taken during that time of the year and during the week, bars are pretty happy to have foot traffic at all, let alone a busy night.
So we like to consider ourselves lucky to have a night like Pub Trivia Night. It's a fun night in the middle of the week and it brings in Trivia-playing regulars and newbies alike. New friendships are formed and often times, old friendships are rekindled. Teams are competitive in a good-natured way and at the end of the night, everyone goes home happy!
Last night was no exception as we had 18 teams competing for the top prize of a $45 bar tab and a berth in our Tournament of Champions Final in September! It was a fun time and even though we had to disqualify a couple of teams for cheating with their iPhones, it was still a good time.
During the course of the night, I saw a good friend of mine, whom I hadn't seen in quite awhile. Sara (pictured right), is a delightfully funny young lady from Texas, and pens her own blog, called "OMG, It's Sara Katherine!" . Once you get to read a few blurbs, you'll get a sense of what she's about and you'll immediately be drawn to her wit and southern charm! I don't get to see her nearly enough, but whenever she passes by the bar, I always love to catch up with her. Check out her blog for yourself and I'm sure you'll enjoy what you see!
That's it for now. My brother's flying into NYC tonight, so I'll be spending some quality time with him. Meanwhile, there's Pre-Season football on tap (Cincinnati vs Atlanta), MLB action and yes, for you diehards, SHARK WEEK!
