Old King’s Road (Santa Barbara)




old kings road-logo

Never underestimate the value of an English pub.

It’s the kind of place that serves as a home-away-from-home for many. Friends and family gather after the daily grind, hoist their glasses and enjoy the finer things in life. Easier than crossing the pond is cruising down to lower State Street and immersing in the warm, festive spirit at Old King’s Road.





(and the respect you deserve!)



We gotta have rules, people

  1. Teams may be comprised of no more than six physically present individuals. No other people besides the team members can be at your table. I don’t want to hear any of that “He’s just going to sit here and not play” crap. There is no minimum team size. If you think you have the chops to take on teams of six people by yourself, then giddy-up. Hint: When building your team, go for the widest variety of subjects covered possible. As Jonathan is famous for saying (in his first and only documented use of a sports analogy ever), “You don’t want a baseball team with nothing but shortstops.”
  2. No outside help for questions, and no inanimate team members. Please don’t call people on your cell phones, download web pages on your PDAs or sneak in volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica in your shorts. I don’t care if your laptop can talk and has more personality than the rest of your team combined. Please leave it home.
  3. The quizmaster is the final arbiter of truth, beauty, fashion, justice and all questions and other matters of Pub Trivia policy. Even if the results appear unfair, inaccurate, rude or obscenely biological, don’t argue. It won’t help.
  4. Any rule not included herein may be created on the spot by the quizmaster and enforced with brutal abandon.
  5. The game is composed of four rounds of ten question each. At the end of each round, you’ll turn in your answers, we’ll grade them, and then make fun of your scores. After that, we’ll give a round a free drinks to the winning team.
  6. In the event of a tie, the tied teams shall be asked a tie-breaker question. The team with the correct (or closest to correct) answer will win the round. In the unlikely event that more than one team puts down the same winning answer, the round will go to the team that gets me their winning answer first. Or if all else fails, I’ll probably just give the drinks to the team I like better. Life is unfair that way, sometimes.
  7. At the end of the evening, we’ll total up the scores and the team with the most points will get a chance to win the rolling jackpot.
