YLD Trivia Night:
An Evening of Camaraderie and Competition
We packed the house with 17 teams competing at the Third Annual Trivia Night held on October 26 at Alstadt in Pioneer Square. Competitors arrived a little wet, but were in good spirits after grabbing a hot pretzel and sampling some of the specialty German beers on tap.
Once everyone was settled, our quizmaster called for attention and the six rounds began. We had a “Stupid Laws – True or False” round, which consisted of questions such as, “In North Dakota it’s illegal to lie down and fall asleep with your shoes on.” (True!) Another round had participants guess which movie or show the fictional judge was in. After each round, points were tallied for that round and small prizes were handed out, including Seahawks keychains, bags of chocolates, movie tickets and beer boots.
With so many teams, the competition was stiff, but in the end one team did consistently well, winning the audio round of identifying the song and artist, and ultimately having the most points. That was “The Devil’s Advocates,” comprised of Shaina Johnson, Mark Mills, Emily Albrecht, Joe Albrecht, Russ Chiupka, Ty Johnson and Natalie Moore, who got to take home a $100 gift card to Alstadt.
We saw lots of creative team names, and the prize for best team name went to “Super Callous Fragile Ego Bigly Bragadoccius.” In the spirit of friendly competition, our last place finishers, team “Lochte’s Locks,” went home with $5 Starbucks gift cards and a promise to study up for next year.
Overall, it was a lighthearted and lively event. We would like to thank the wonderful staff at Alstadt for their excellence service, as well as being so accommodating. A big thank you also goes out to Brad Gandt from LexisNexis for sponsoring the event and hanging around to enjoy a beer with everyone. We had so much fun and hope to see everyone back for next year’s YLD Trivia Night!
