YLD's First Trivia Night a Resounding Success
Fifteen teams gathered October 9 at Tommy Gun on Capitol Hill to compete for the title of Smartest Team during the YLD's first Trivia Night. While waiting for the main event to begin, contestants snacked on truffle popcorn and hot pretzels, enjoyed Tommy Gun's specialty ginger beer cocktails, and got to know their competition.
Around 7:30, our witty Quizmaster Tabitha, from Geeks Who Drink, kicked off the trivia contest, which consisted of six themed rounds, including an audio round about money and a photo round identifying fictional judges. In the end, there could only be one champion and with a three-point lead that title went to team S.M.R.T. Not only do they have bragging rights for the next year, but they were also given a trophy to parade around and a gift card to Elysian Brewery.
Team Scalia-eesi, Mother of Dragons, also received a gift card for best team name. As for team Baby Lawyers, they finished last, but walked out heads held high sporting their "Better Luck Next Year" medals and promising to use their Starbucks gift cards to study up.
Overall it was a lighthearted and lively event and we can't wait to do it again. We would like to thank the staff at Tommy Gun for their excellent service and for being so easy to work with. A big thank you also goes out to Joel and Jill from Esquire Deposition Solutions for not only sponsoring the event, but getting into the spirit by giving their own mini quiz complete with prizes. We hope to see everyone back for next year's Trivia Night!
