Every now and then you meet someone who is "larger than life". Then, you happen to meet someone at a tap takeover who is not only "larger than life" but is also, quite literally, the largest lifeform in the building. Wednesday, as we kicked off another fantastic night of PubGuys Trivia at your favorite watering hole, I learned that Ballast Point was in the house for a tap takeover. The rep from Ballast Point immediately walked over and, with a booming voice that made me sound like that shriek from a chihuahua when you accidently step on their tail, introduced himself as "Bear".
As we worked our way through the regular awesomeness that is a weekly PubGuys Trivia night, I would periodically hand off the mic to Bear so that he could ask some Ballast Point specific questions for some specials prizes which he had provided. Now, it's worth noting that I don't handover the mic easily; but in this instance, I knew my beloved mic and the audience were in good hands. For the next few minutes, every person in the bar was held captive by this, this....voice. Each time he jumped on the mic, the energy in the room spiked and everyone was laughing. It truly made for a fun night, and we hope to see Bear back soon.
For the game itself, well, game one was a bit of a runaway as The Old Man and the PLC simply dominated. In the second stanza, armed to the hilt with bonus points - this is the obligatory mention to follow us each week on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, as well as subscribe to our email newsletter, and of course the write-up point which is forthcoming as soon as this never-ending run-on sentence will actually, and mercifully draw to a conclusion - the ever-faithful team of Quiz in My Pants stormed back from their disappointing third place finish in game 1 to take the top spot, just edging by The Old Man and the PLC.
It was another sensational night, and we hope you had a great time. Sadly, next week, I'll not be in attendance, so you'll need to lend PGKyle your ears and support him as you usually do. Now, for that bonus point, simply tell Kyle the name of the largest city within the area code that matches the number of counties in Texas.
