Monday Night Trivia Fight: MBDC vs. DCist

Wonderland ballroom

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

It’s Monday Night Trivia Fight, live from the Wonderland Ballroom. It’s a packed, packed house here upstairs at Kenyon Street, and the line at the bar is lengthy. The prize? Your tab is paid for. Your pride? On the line.

Tonight’s battle is extra special as Metroblogger Wayan is rockin’ the microphone as the MC this evening, and DCist is in the house. This, folks, makes for an evening when the liquor and beer shall flow like the Potomac.

Representing for Metroblogging DC are WFY, Tiffany, Don Whiteside, Tom Bridge and Desert Island Boy. Representing DCist are members of their eponymous staff. Actually, it’s Ryan, Martin, Hemal, Tom and Scott [entry edited to add Scott, my bad Scott!]

Good luck everyone!

Update: It’s all said and done, and Metroblogging DC comes out on top in the first match by just one point! Thanks very much to our awesome bartender Carla for keeping us good and lubricated, and to the Wonderland Ballroom for putting up with Wayan for more than an hour, it’s way longer than most of us can do it. Here’s hoping for a rematch at another site soon!

    For the love of god, never host trivia night again. You suck.

    You forgot Scott! He made it, too.

    Thanks Tom, I’ve updated the list, my apologies to Scott!

    I mean, let’s just be honest, the night just would not have been the same without my ingenius (and impromptu, I might add) math skills.

    Kidding. It actaully hurt my brain a little.

    My fav moment was the girl who said sweaty balls are organs. That and Loser-Yermom’s inability to remember Mayor for Life, Marion S. Barry, Jr’s middle name.

    It is “Shepilov”
