Curtis was the one who started trivia in Lancaster County at the Greenfield Holiday Inn. He then branched out to Bube's in the late '90s before moving to Orlando to become a full-time host in 2002. Please join us for a special night of old skool trivia!

I screwed up the the theme tonight, which short-changed our pickers, 2-H. They were expecting 60s rock and roll, but got 60s rock instead (I'm on a low-carb diet). This did please three teams of rockers who aced the music round. Most pleased was Phil Spector's Wig Collection, who had a one of our best scores in a long time, 96 points! Chicks and Dicks also did well, with 85, one point ahead of Giggles and Friends (which should please Mike, since he had places to go). Sold! was fourth, followed by K-B and their lucky table and Room Two. The B-52s are picking next week's theme, and they are going with a subject dear to Barry and Mary Lynn: New York City.

The Fore are all aglow with their second place showing tonight, only one question back from We've Got 99 Problems But a Nutsack Ain't One. (Actually, the glow is from my kreppy cell-phone camera.) The Olives were in third, followed by One Ball Paul and the Rhythm Disciple (The Paulies tied for best fourth-round score, btw). The Slap was fifth and Afleck Was the Bomb in Phantoms sixth. Theme choice goes to Paul, Christina and Erin of Nintendo 64 and they are going with Twin Peaks. Paul also says that I make a mighty fine piece of lasagna. (That's my attempt at a Twin Peaks joke).

We Played Trivia with Grover Cleveland on Two Non-Consecutive Occasions was the most creative team of the night because of 1. their awesome Abe Simpson-inspired name and 2. their use of their Trashbag of Dee-lite prize of foamy letters. I also liked Lightning Bugs Make My Poo Glow and Nurses - We Keep Doctors from Killing You, who made a return appearance. Once again the fourth round was brutal, with Ubersmack winning by two points over the Pixie Stix. The Miami Blades were only 3 points behind, followed by the Drunken Stepfathers, Gawky Domino and the aforementioned Clevelandites. Steph and Phil's Dark Angels are going with Arrested Development as next week's theme. And no one seemed to appreciate the Rainn (eye)Drops on Rose + Rose and Whiskey + Whiskey on Kitten + Kitten pun on the picture sheet.

Ashley and Eric of Win or Lose, We Still Booze hang out post-show with the snake that she won from the Trashbag of Dee-Lite. They have transplanted from central PA and have enjoyed the hospitality of Lancaster Countians. more importantly, they enjoyed tonight's show, which saw relative newcomers Nintendo 64 snatch victory from the Toxic Olives in the last round. The Tony Danza Slap also rallied to take third. 666 UDVL almost made the money, but placed fourth, two points ahead of The Other Nutsacks. Quietly Making Noise almost got theme choice, but that went to the tying You Can't Fix Stupid and This Better Be Better. Both teams are going with musical choices, so we'll have Motown and rap music as next week's two themes. Also: special thanks to Team C.H.U.D. and Prius for making the trip from Chuckles. And Nintendo 64 topped the night off be winning the inaugural spin of Wheel of Lasagna!

The Sound of Music (which, strangely enough, I have never seen). Props also, to the Miami Blades, who tied Ubersmack in the final round (unfortunately the early rounds did them in). Also, welcome back to Jenna, who has returned as a server after a hiatus at Carlos and Charlie's.

Tonight's picture round was a tribute to the Freshly Dead, including new inductee Karl Malden (Karl Marx+Malcolm X+Dennis Weaver, that is). The B52s, last week's 7th place team, charged to a 16 point victory. I't Just a Freakin' Game had their best showing in a while, placing second, right ahead of the dynamic duo of D&M. Chix and Dix had a rough night, but recovered in the last round enough to take fourth. There was a tie between Liquor In Paradise and KB for fifth, which put This Just In: Britney Spears OD'ed and Is Number 8 in the key seventh spot (Ironically, they had won the game at Chuckles just four days ago). They have chosen the HBO series Entourage as next week's theme.
