A report by guest blogger Melinda Nyn on the TV Trivia Night held at Cafe LaPe'rouse @ Austin on December 1, 2014 at 6 pm SLT.
Gnashing of teeth and whirling brains could be heard and sensed at Austin on Monday when Mili Adored and Sage (SageWisdom) ran a TV Trivia quiz.
People were slow to arrive but soon the room was filling fast, and the somewhat unusual seats in front of the stage almost ran out as more and more people flocked in to test their TV Trivia knowledge. The quiz team themselves were sprawled on a set very reminiscent of the Johnny Carson show. The view of the New York skyline (I think, but as a Brit how should i know?) was breathtaking.
The questions were easy for some; very difficult for others. At the end of each, as the answer appeared, it was announced that a random person, who had got it right, was the winner. So each of us had a chance of being up front - provided we knew the answer!
How difficult were they? Well, being a Brit it wasn't easy as some programmes had never materialised over here. Yet some were easy, some were on the tip of my tongue but ... elusive! They ranged from 'What was the last name of Rosanne's character in the show Roseanne? to 'Which spaceman said 'nanu nanu?' All questions were multiple choice so some who hadn't a clue were still able to amass points!
After two rounds it was the visitors who were victorious - Darla Lacombe won the first game and her partner, Johnny Avon, the second.
All in all it was a fun event and we are all looking forward to the Movie Trivia Quiz which is happening next Thursday, 11th December.
