They say that with adversity comes growth. The also say that when the chips are down, you come to realize who your true friends are. Well tonight, I grew AND learned who my true quizzing friends were! It was a great turnout tonight at The Public House! We had ten teams play with us tonight, including many first-time players.

Deck the Halls with boughs of...mistletoe?
Tedd Strange

I'm not sure what kind of freaks are so desperate for affection that they decorate the whole house with mistletoe, but who am I to judge?   It was a great fun time at The Public House, with a lucky number 13 teams showing up to put this noob through the paces.  It's great to host at a place with some solid regulars, although I know we had some new kids as well.  Hannah (formerly from Long Beach) was even there to celebrate her birthday with us.  Happy Birthday, and a speedy return to your husband getting back from the 'stan. Speaking of great fun times at The Public House, don't forget that this Saturday they will be having their 3rd Annual Halloween
