096/365 - Winnings

096/365 - Winnings, originally uploaded by Mikey Brick.

November 4, 2013. We thought we were just going to The Monarch to get dinner, but trivia was beginning right after we were seated. We went ahead and played, at first ready to bow out as soon as we didn't know any answers or couldn't carry on our own conversation. Then came the first bonus question, which required getting the written answer to the host first. We won that and got a prize, and continued to win all the bonus questions, while steadily remaining in second place. At the end, we were still in second, but the kitchen staff was the only team ahead of us, and they of course, were ineligible for a gift certificate to their own restaurant. With them out, we won the first prize as well as several bonus prizes, and got $25 taken off of our bill. It was a good dinner! I had a delicious fried green tomato sandwich, and the Chicago Bears beat the Green Bay Packers for the first time in 6 years, which we simultaneously watched on TV.
