A Stetson’s Surprise for the nerds
One of my friend’s is leaving town to be a big corporate lawyer at a M&A firm. We met him and a couple others at Stetson’s for a few drinks. There were two surprises: 1) It was trivia night 2) I ran into some of my favorite bloggers from DC's Urban family The Boy, The Party Girl and Drunk Girl.
I was also pleasantly surprised that our team the Royals kicked some ass. I am not a trivia person. I like to kick ass at Monopoly or Risk, but Trivial Pursuit is just not my bag. Trivial Pursuit is one of those games where the nerd can be a jock. He/she can use knowledge not to get A’s, but to win and use brainpower in a competitive “take it, bitch” kind of way. I think the name of the game really sums it up best.
Our team pulled out of a squeaker of a game, but we finished strong only missing one question in the final “brainteaser” category for a victory. They weren’t so much brainteasers as word play, but we figured it out and reaped a $75.00 credit to our bar tab, which not only the Royals enjoyed, but also the DC Urban Family and the tables around us.
We also discussed categories we could kick ass in, here are a few:
No Child Left Behind Policy & Politics
Nebraska Football 1989-present
Jayhawk Basket ball 1994-present
Mergers & Acquisition law
The Works of Ernest Hemmingway
Neurological disorders and surgical practices
Pride and Prejudice and other Jane Austen Greats
HBO Hits 2001-present
Existentialists and related movies
Omaha Emo music
Disabled Veterans Regulatory Law
Single Barrel scotches
Anne of Green Gables
DC Tenets Law
Playboy Centerfolds 1989-present
Of course none of these were asked though DC Urban Family did frighteningly well in the "Sci-Fi" category and took home what may have been the best prize of the night.
