Best of Syracuse – Vote NOW!

Hello All!  It's Sara here.  I'm excited to be starting up with trivia again soon (Wed., Sept. 3rd @ 7pm).  I know this message is late (only 2 more days to vote), and it's a long shot, but...every year the Syracuse New Times puts out its "Best of Syracuse" list.  Last year the Syracuse Trivia Company's trivia night at Coleman's took the prize for best trivia night.  I thought maybe this year we could give Radisson Ale House chance.

1.  Click on link http://www.syracusenewtimes.com/best-of-syracuse-2014-nominations/
2.  Enter your email address
3.  Navigate to the page 7 or 8 and find the last question at the bottom for Best Trivia Event (You may choose to fill in as many or as few of the other categories as well.)
4.  Type in "Radisson Ale House" for Best Trivia Event
5.  Click "done" on last page (page 8).
This year, there is a two-part process for the Best of Syracuse...after initial voting closes this Wednesday 8/27, they will take the top 5 results and then open up a second round of voting for you to choose the winner.
Thanks!  See you soon!

We’re Baaaaaack!!

Great news everyone!  We'll be starting trivia back up at the Radisson Ale House beginning Wednesday September 3rd at 7:00pm!  Sara will be back to charm you with her good looks and cheerful attitude, so put this on your calendar, tell your friends and get your teams ready for the new Wednesday night tradition!

4/23 Free Answer

"You are what you eat" is a commonly repeated, and I assume, retweeted sentiment, but since a minority of us eat people, or eat our lives, and since few of us are peanut butter sandwiches, I think it's more appropriate to say you are what you do.  And if you do fun things, then you are fun.  If you agree with that then you probably also agree that you should be going out to play trivia this evening.

Here is a Free Answer for Wednesday: "Pillow"

Trivia is the thing to do on Wednesdays, so make sure you do that thing and come out!

We had a full (Ale) house tonight!  We have more and more people returning from their stint down south and we have more and more people celebrating birthdays at trivia night!  We are happy to have them all.  Tonight was the last week of our tournament, but we will be back for trivia next week (and every Wednesday remaining in April), with just as much fun as tonight.

4/16 Free Answer

Mountaineer George Mallory famously replied to the question of why he would want to climb mount Everest by saying "because it's there".  A trivia player, (who I won't name) was once asked why they play trivia on Wednesdays, and their reply was "Because it's fun".  Whether you do things because they are fun, or because they simply exist, I think you should come out to trivia tonight, because it is fun, and it is there.

Here is a Free Answer for 4/16: "Nutella"

See you guys out there!

Did you know that if you plan to travel internationally some airlines require that your passport not only be current, but that it does not expire for at least 6 months from your departure- or they won't let you on the plane?  Now you know.  Now you Kohls.

The Free Answer on Wednesday is: "Shaggy"

I'm looking forward to the trivia tonight, I hope you are too!

4/2 Free Answer

Try to think back in your life to a time when you invented a new sound.  Something that no one else had ever produced before you, and when you or anyone heard it, it was at first totally unfamiliar.  I bet you haven't done that.  I don't think I have, which makes me wonder who invented all these sounds in our languages. It's kind of the same thing with ideas and facts.  Brand new, never before thought of ideas or totally new discoveries are incredibly rare.  Luckily, we don't demand that you come up with any of these things at trivia night, we just want to know if you recall hearing about all that stuff that's already out there.

So anyhow, here is a Free Answer for Wednesday: "Panda"

Go forth and find your teammates now, tell them to gather with you this evening and commence having fun.  Who knows, maybe you'll invent something brand new while you're there...

3/26 Free Answer

Most of what we "know" is little more than something someone else told us that we decided to believe.  Sure some of us do some cursory mental tests to make sure it's not obviously untrue, but as long as it's backed up by enough people, we are inclined to believe it.  Just food for thought.  If your head is jammed up with all sorts of stuff you heard and read somewhere, maybe come out and play a little trivia with the knowledge.

Here is a Free Answer for Wednesday 3/26: "Tobacco"

And here is another fact for you: trivia is better with friends.  I encourage you to test this one out if you don't believe me.

Well, the basketball team I had winning it all is now out of the tourney, so I now have some time to post Wednesday's trivia results.  We had quite the crowd this week.  Having the snow day the week before makes you realize how much you miss trivia and just have to get back to it!  With all the people at the Ale House, it was inevitable that some "extras" may have made their way into the team photos - they wouldn't have intentionally photobombed! :) Remember to check back on Wednesday for one free answer!
