About The Famous Bar

The Famous craft cocktail lounge is located in Glendale's historic Huntley-Evans building, directly across the street from the Americana at Brand. It follows an eclectic and rich pedigree of establishments that have called this building home in the last century, most notably the early Glendale landmark, The Famous Department Store. The Famous, true to its heritage, embraces the classic art of fine craft cocktail creation, invented in the United States in 1856, using bitters, juices, syrups, and infusions, prepared in-house using fresh ingredients from local markets and growers. Cocktails served at The Famous are identical to those served nearly 100 years ago when the building was constructed.

We offer a nod of respect today to Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink, (photo #4) frequent top-three finishers who took first place this week at The Famous on Brand. I mean, sheesh. They dominate competition at The Famous, and finished in the top 20 at our recent Tournament of Champions!! They are, indeed, a formidable team.

But Bad News Barristers (photo #3) are no slouches themselves. They also find themselves in the top three winner's circle frequently. And so it was last night, when they again performed well and took our #2 slot. But it's gotta sting to know that they would have BEATEN the BJWLUD crew if they had opted to double on the final round. They aced the round, but chose not to double! Oooooh! That's gotta sting!!

One a separate note, two thoughts:

Thought One: If you're playing as a single, can you still call yourself Wolfpack? Aren't you, at that point, Wolf Man? Jus' sayin'

Thought Two: Each week, while teams work on their Round 7 answers, your faithful quizmaster works the room, going from team to team, taking photos for this scoreboard recap. While most folks are happy to have their photos taken, from time to time someone let's us know us (me) know what they think of us, as illustrated in photo #2.

See ya next week!

QUIZ RECAP

It was a big, BIG trivia night at The Famous in Glendale this week, as no fewer than 16 teams packed the joint for a raucous round of King Trivia excellence.

Fresh from their fine showing at the 2018 Edition of King Trivia's Tournament of Champions, Because Jeopardy Won't Let Us Drink swept away all competition with an impressive (and insurmountable) 85 points!

The lovely ladies (and a gentleman) of Yer a Quizard Harry were close on their heels all evening, and finished with a more-than-respectable 73 to take 2nd.  And a well-executed double-or-nothing move in the 5th Round gave The Barrelers 3rd place with 65.

Gentle Sweaters were first runners up in 4th, due to a missed opportunity to double in the 5th. Hey guys...you know what they say: no guts, no glory!!

See ya next week.
