Trivia Quiz!

Today, I went to Newtowne Grille at Porter square with Tess and her colleague kaylee after work. The food was decent w.r.t. the price. We had to stand in the beginning as the place was completely packed. The big attraction was the Trivia quiz. Every table got a questionnaire. The Trivia master was announcing questions. Each team had to provide their answers and team name on a piece of paper and submit it after every question. Most of the questions were about American movies, songs, US geography, history and politics. And I don't know much about any of that. Luckily Tess knows a lot about movies and songs. And to some extent Kaylee too. The only question I knew the answer to was 'Who was the first African-American woman to win an Oscar for a Female Actress in 2002?' The answer was Halle Berry. Although I couldn't recall his name, I knew that the first man to fly in space was a Russian (Yuri Gagarin) because the first man to walk on the moon was an American (Neil Armstrong) and that happened because Americans had to beat the Russians who went into space before them. We had a few lucky guesses. For example Helium is the lightest Noble gas and Aioli is a sauce made using Mayonnaise, Garlic and Olive oil. We also had a few close misses. For example, we were not sure whether or not Lake Michigan was the largest Great Lake totally inside the U.S.. And it is completely inside the U.S. However, our answer was Lake Erie which turned out to be wrong. Overall we had a good time discovering intersting tidbits.

P.S.: It was against the rules to use a google the answers.
