Trivia Q&A: July 12

We had a great night of Trivia on Wednesday night, as we went from 10 teams last week to 21 teams last night. The bar was completely filled, and that's always a great thing to see! Everyone was really into the Trivia, and we had a great race to the finish, as the top five teams were separated by just four points heading into IQ Trivia. But the team of Trump & Trumper: This Is Why We Have Birth Control (who also won for Best Team Name) had a perfect round, scoring 20 points, and jumped from third place to win by just one point with 51 points overall. Congratulations to them on a great come from behind win.

DIMS finished second with 50 points, and third place went to The Whore Mongers with 46 points.
