JUNE 18th RECAP & PICS
FOURTEEN TEAMS competed at Bacchus Trivia Night, Monday, June 18th - the theme was OOH! THAT SMELL. Margaritas ($3) were flowing and we sold out of our $7 flatbread pizzas and sandwiches! Round 1 was not too tough on the teams (see the actual Round 1 questions posted below) — most of the teams got 7 or more points (out of 10). R2 was about perfumes and scents and was a little trickier — who knew that Philppe Starck designed a Target toilet brush and the L'Air du Temps Lalique crystal bottle? Team Stinky Tofu did! R3 was about noses and scents and Team Smelly Cats and Team The Rimmers got the highest score (7) in that round. R4 (as always) separated the packs, and the new ranked points format for R5 was a game changer for some. R6 was an interactive round where contestants were invited to smell samples and identify the flavor. When it was all over Team Just Here For The Chips eked out a 1 point victory (50/70). Congratulations! (more photos below)
2nd Place went to a group of guys who surged from 6th place to a near win: team Scentsational; 3rd was team Smells Like Queen Spirit; 4th: team Stinky Tofu; 5th: Smelly Cats; 6th: Trivia Newton Johns; 7th: The Rimmers; 8th: What Stinks!; 9th: team Scents o‘ Humor; 10th: Desert Scent. Latecomers teams Big Fact Hunt, Red, and Slut & Jimbo Placed 11th, 12th, and 13th respectively. And finally, team Hilo left after two rounds (previous engagement) winding up with 9 points and 14th place. Below are some photos from the night. Click to enlarge.
Again, thanks to all who played! Super fun!
