Movie Trivia Night at Cafe LaPe'rouse at Austin

I normally do not go inworld during night times, but I had the opportunity to do so on a limited basis last night and managed to drop in at the half point of Cafe O's Movie Trivia Night, which was hosted by Sage (SageWisdom resident) and Mili Adored.

The first thing that struck me was the nicely-decorated settings, which the hosts proudly announced was done by Naughty Glimmer. The second thing I noticed was the comfy red plushy chairs.

I sank into one and sighed, then looked around.

The room was filled with about 14-16 people, and I recognized most of them, including Reni (Serenity Streusel) and Dakota (Dakota0therbee Resident), our partners in Afro hair crime; Melinda Nyn, she of the gorgeous gluteus maximus;  Serena Mist (xurtheone), my mesh builder extraordinaire; as well as Taylor Smitty (TaylorSmitty Resident), BillyEagle Avedon, RB Quan, Aisha Sohl, Hunter Teodosio, Jen Umaga, Lia (Naharlia Resident),Darla Lacombe, and Johnny Avon, and probably some others I missed (sorry).

The game was simple. You had to put on a HUD that had four buttons labeled A to D, and when the hosts called out a multiple choice question, you simply pressed one of the buttons on your HUD. Each correct reply got you a point, and the points were totaled at the end to get an overall winner.

I have to say I had loads of fun doing this. The joking around and repartee between the competitors was non-stop, and even though I sucked big time at it (unfortunately, my girl Linda the Movie Trivia Diva was not on hand to uphold the family honor), I did manage to accumulate a few points.

I added a short cut of the public chat below just to show how one round went. Of course, I picked a round where moi won *grins*

But in the end after two games, the pretenders melted away and the real winners showed up...and they were...uh...Lia...both times I believe *grumbles*
