Stumped in Stumptown!

I’ve got to hand it to you guys – you really know Portland! Last week was Birthday Smackdown Week, and I chose our own fair city as the topic for you to challenge me with at each quiz. Most of you guys stumped me with questions about our fair city that were tough but fair, interesting and fun. And on Thursday’s 90210 quiz night, every single team earned a point off of me, for I let folks ask me questions about Beverly Hills 90210 – about which I know nothing! There were two teams that had amazingly awesome costumes, one of whom I eagerly await to receive pictures from. The other decked-out team, Brenda’s Rebellious Combat Boots, included the lovely Sarah X. Dylan. Way to rock forth while looking good, ladies!

Big Announcement of the Week #1: Jade Lounge will be open for Labor Day quizzery tomorrow; Ella Street Social Club will NOT.

Big Announcement of the Week #2: Tonight will be the final night that Yurs Bar & Grill Triviology will be held on a Sunday. With the advent of football season, we are making a move to Wednesday nights, starting on September 15th. Fear not, we’ll still be situated in the cozy cave, Jon will still be your terrific trivia jockey, and $50 to the bar will still be the sweet prize!

Big Announcement of the Week #3: I have sealed the deal on my newest Triviology venue – ladies and gentlemen, I present The WorkShop Pub! This bar opened last year, right next to the Clinton Street Theater, and is full of fine brews & Southern foods. Charlene will be your host at this venue, which debuts on September the 22nd at 8:30, and will continue onwards on every other Wednesday as well.
