Morty's Cafe: Trivia Night

Morty's Cafe is a fairly recent addition to the Logan food scene.  The cafe is located on Darwin Ave on the USU campus.  The dining room is small but in warmer weather there is an excellent 2nd floor patio that diners can enjoy.  The menu features gourmet burgers, quinoa bowls, baked goods, and shakes in addition to the regular burger restaurant trappings (fries, onion rings, sodas, etc). 

I've tried several of their burgers and have enjoyed them all, but am particularly fond of the Sunnyside, Kimchi, and Hawaiian burgers (pineapple AND jalepenos, yes please!).  In addition to the regular menu they introduce a special item of the month each month.  Last month they featured the Morty's Gras, which was a pulled pork sandwich with house made coleslaw on top.

Tuesday nights at Morty's are Trivia Nights.  Hosted in the beloved pub quiz format, these nights have steadily grown in popularity.  I consider myself decent at trivia games, but I've discovered that my friend Shari is Mensa level when it comes to dominating at quiz night.  Including our win tonight Shari has won a total of 3 times, once in individual competition and twice with teams.  Our team names have varied from MLT to Rocky vs The Russian.  After tonight I believe we're changing our name to The Ken Jennings.  We'd like to say "Good game" and "sorry, we get a little over-enthusiatic sometimes" to all the other teams, and thanks to Team Flying V for giving us a run for our money, we'll always have Cork.

Here is a photographic account of Trivia Night tonight.  If you feel like taking on team The Ken Jennings (and if you enjoy losing) feel free to challenge us next week, Tuesday night, at 7:30pm, and bring your A game.

Wrong answers to the question: "A kitchen tool with the same name as an instrument in the lute family..."
 
Hint: It's not a spoon.
Hint: It's not a ladle.  Although these answers combined brought to mind a funny therapy scene from the movie 28 Days.
 The winning round...


The end.
