Wouldn't you prefer a good game of chess?
Last week's form-letter recap remains unfinished, and so the conclusion of November is left shrouded in mystery. But, we at the Indian Road Café Pub Quiz are forward looking. We leave November behind and move on to December. December, that strangest month of the pub quiz calendar. That wily beast that has this year given us a three week quiz month. That year-capping month that makes winners out of teams that best overcome the attrition of the holidays and makes losers out of teams that choose family and friends over pub quiz glory. December.
December began in the usual way, with six rounds of obscure trivia, shout-out questions, and beer chugging. We had Dr. Jordan at the helm with guest host Noah (whose quizmaster name I cannot recall). There were rounds on Geography, Science, Oscar winning anagrams, John Williams, Heroes and Villains, and a common bond. Scores were tight at halftime with a tie between University of Inwood and Duke Silver, but by the end of the night the scores were still tight and the tie had not been broken. Tie breaker questions were used, and Duke Silver showed their knowledge of wall lengths to win for the night.
Speaking of Geography, if you had any trouble remembering that Panama's an isthmus, then this song will make sure you never forget it again. (And, if you didn't figure it out from the title, this guy uses words that start with F).
See you next week.

I'm sorry I'll be missing the quiz this evening. To make it up to you, I offer you this form-recap to use when summarizing tonight's goings on. Good luck! I predict that it will be a fantastic night.
Weekly Recap Form
What a fantastic night! Who could have predicted it? There was a lively crowd, despite the _complication_, and _co-host_ showed up with some stellar rounds on _co-host's_first_round_topic_, _co-host's_second_round_topic_, and _co-host's_third_round_topic_. This made me feel _how_I_felt_, since I had rounds on _my_first_round_topic_, _my_second_round_topic_, and _my_third_round_topic_.
Although _it_was_close_ | _they_were_behind_at_the_half_ | _everyone_hates_them_, the winning team at the end of the night was _the_winning_team_at_the_end_of_the_night_. Incidentally, _the_winning_team_at_the_end_of_the_night_ was also the _random_superlative_ team of the night.
As this was the final week of _this_month_, we awarded our monthly prizes. Top scoring team for the month was _top_scoring_team_of_the_month_. They get tickets from All Shows, a cocktail named in their honor and served to them next month, and a month with our _beloved_ Quizmasters' Cup (which was _thankfully_ | _unfortunately_not_ returned by _previous_monthly_winners_).
Congratulations to the winners! Thank you to _co-host_ for co-hosting. And, thank you to everyone who showed up to make this quiz such an unexpected success.

This week's quiz was sponsored by Genesee Cream Ale, "Genesee Cream Ale. Tastes as good coming up as it did going down."
Also, Ironically Dandy Andy was back to host once more. He did a fantastic job with our very own Dr. Jordan, from what I can remember. There were rounds about dynamic duos, Mel Brooks movies, and heck, there was even a Common Bond on Shakespeare.
It was University of Inwood finishing with the top score of the night and taking home the $25 gift certificate to IRC. However, the real interest lies in who will take home our beloved Quizmasters' Cup next week (assuming it's not left town for the Thanksgiving holiday). Will Trivialis live up to their reputation once again and let the cup be stolen out from under them?
Tune in next week to find out!
