Hosting Trivia

I recently got to live out one of my long time dreams: hosting pub trivia! I've hosted trivias before: at my Christmas party, on Chautauqua, at an ex-teacher*'s anniversary party. But never have I done it all official like: with prizes, in a bar, with lots of strangers weighing potential answers to questions from my brain. It was a great. And not only was it great for me, it seemed that the attendees had a good time too.

So not only was this just checking off the dream of hosting a real bar trivia, it was hosting it at one of the best trivia places around. Scratch that: not one of but the best trivia place around. Will, the host at the Longhorn Saloon in Edison, WA, writes some of the best trivia, is the liveliest host, and creates the best atmosphere of any trivia I've ever been to (and that's saying a lot, because from last check over at the trivia database, I've been to 12 other locations just this year!). Anyway, to fill in for Will was quite an honor. I sure hope I did it justice.

As is my wont with trivia, I thought I might post the picture round so you can play along at home. I really like how this one turned out: not too hard and not too easy. The only one nobody got was #4. Can you? (Make sure you're answering the question in the lower left hand corner!) Answers in comments below

With as much fun as I had, I truly hope that I get another crack at hosting. It takes a while to hone in difficulty, categories, etc. But it is safe to say that I now know that I don't just love playing trivia, I love creating it as well!
