Tensions were high last night at Scholz Garten as four teams battled to win the inaugural Burnt Orange Report Texas Political Trivia Pub Quiz!
Players answered questions about Ann Richards, Burnt Orange Report, last summer's filibuster, the UT campus, and the state of Texas.
The contest was neck-and-neck between MrSpeakerMembers, a team comprised of Travis County Democratic Party and legislative staffers, and The Really Gay Place, an all-star line-up of Travis County political heavyweights.
The top two teams traded the lead back after each round, and it came down to the wire.
Here's the quiz. It auto-advances every 5 seconds.
In the end, The Really Gay Place — comprised of David Butts, Rick Cofer, Chaille Jolink, Mark & Jennifer Littlefield, Mark McCulloch, and Mara Richard — eked out a 2-point win over MrSpeakerMembers — Kate Alexander, Jenny Casey, Stephanie Chiarello, Joe Deshotel, Monty Exter, JD Gins, Analiese Kornely, and Jeff Wolverton.
Congrats to the winners!
Thanks also to Chelsea Brass for helping to organize and to everyone who attended and had fun.
