Going Out Guide trivia is in the books

By Alex Baldinger

We know, the questions were not easy.

What cereal grain is used to produce injera, the spongy bread that is the staple of Ethiopian cuisine?

In what subject did Marion Barry earn a Master's degree from Fisk University?

What is the significance of Column 32D of 1401 Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn?

If you answered 1) teff, 2) organic chemistry and 3) Where Woodward met with Deep Throat, you would have been a perfect three-for-three. But such high percentages were few and far between at Bedrock Billiards last night.

Twenty-three (!) teams competed in the first-ever Going Out Guide trivia contest, and it was great to see such high spirits despite some legitimate head-scratchers. But hey, it's pub trivia: You're all winners.

Congratulations are in order for "[Bleep] You, FIFA," who won a pair of lower-level seats to the Dec. 15 Caps game, and to "All This Thanks to Craisins," who won a $50 bar tab.

"Corey Haim, Six Months Drug Free" came in third place, but the news was not all good: Their name was judged to be the worst of the night -- too soon, friends -- and for their efforts, they were awarded a copy of "The Human Centipede" on DVD.

For best team name, we chose "Santa + Leggings = Mistletoe," who were richly rewarded with a DVD box set of "The Six Million Dollar Man."

And finally, a big thank you to bartender Alissa, who kept the drinks flowing in between rounds.
