After a month away all it took was for us to cross over into the summer to return for the 127th edition of our longest-running current location, with just four more events to surpass Lou Dawgs in both event numbers as well as longevity, we returned for an intimate night of Trivia Club at Hitch! Remember that as we go forward into July and August we'll be switching to summer hours and going TWICE MONTHLY on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month!

On this night, our house team at Hitch the Fighting Mongooses (on this night Travis, a singular Mongoose) were going up against former Trusty Rumpet alumni Battle Toast, who also run the amazing Dutch restaurant Borrel on the Danforth! Battle Toast led by three points over the Fighting Mongooses after  Trivia Classic , while the Bookhouse Boys finished in third!  Game Show Games  saw Battle Toast grow their lead with a TOP TEN answer for both Countdown Takedown and Survey Says, while the Fighting Mongooses grabbed eight points in Takedown but were left pointless in Survey Says! The Mongoose then proved to be the last team standing in Combo Breakdown, but in putting there Combo'd points on the line for double or nothing... lost them by the slightest of margins!

 Tri-Pardo  gave an opportunity for the Fighting Mongooses' Travis to regain some ground on Battle Toast however, and he did, with twenty-six points from the first and third questions! Battle Toast had also gained twenty-six, but in getting the second question incorrect also lost six points! This meant that heading into the  Finale  question it was Battle Toast with a seven point lead! The Battle Toast team went all-in, to the wall, while the Fighting Mongooses left two points behind! Those would prove to be two very important points... as it was a tricky Finale question...

Winning their TENTH GOLDEN VHS... THE FIGHTING MONGOOSES! With those two points The Fighting Mongooses become just the thirteenth team to cross into the TEN-TIMERS CLUB plateau, while Travis joins an even smaller Club of SOLO CHAMPIONS alongside PETE!, Arnis of The Good Folks, Mark of the Cunning Stunts, Anthony of Lt. Dance, and only a couple of others!

Congrats once again to the Fighting Mongooses, and thank you to those Battle Toasts! Go out and enjoy Borrel! We'll see you all in TWO WEEKS as we begin our summer hours at Our Home Away, yes our next night out at HITCH is JULY 9TH!
