The House Dressing is Parisian

There were two rounds of restaurant-specific questions tonight. Not specific to the restaurant business, specific to this particular place Fortunately, my predilection for single-malt scotch got us through one round. I'll be skipping those questions. Here's the rest.

1. How many different types of Samuel Adams beer are there?
2. What was the name of Usher's first album?
3. What two liquors are in a Sex on the Beach?
4. On the MTV reality show Adventures in Hollyhood, what is the name of Triece's girlfriend?
5. On The Steve Harvey Show, what is the name of Lydia Liza Gutman's lover?
6. What number was worn by John Elway, Mickey Mantle, and David Beckham?
7. What is Idaho's nickname?
8. Name the last thoroughbred to win the Triple Crown.
Final question:
9. In what year was Yuengling beer first brewed?

This is the worst list yet for questions I feel like I should know the answers to, but don't. (1,2,3,6,7,and 8 - anyway - I wouldn't even want to a hazard a guess at the Yuengling beer thing.)

1. According to the recent commercial, it's 21.
2. My Way
3. Peach schnapps and vodka (I used to work the bar at college parties, so I'm a little embarrassed not to know this)
4. Sugarfoot
5. Arthur Rabinowitz (sp?)
6. 7. That still doesn't seem right to me.
8 is, indeed, Affirmed.
9. 1829

What's 7?

J. Bowman said...

Oops, sorry. Idaho is "The Gem State." The 7 for number 6 just threw me off.

Go figure. I loved like 100 miles from Idaho and didn't know. I only think of it as having potatoes. Seems like Gem State is a desperate attempt to compete with Montana - The Treasure State.

Actually, I lived 100 miles from Idaho. I did love it there, but in case that comment makes no sense - it's because of the proximity of i and o on my computer keyboard.

I thought maybe you knew a lot of very nice guys named Miles from Idaho.
