Saint Petersburg, FL  33713 Map

Congratulations to last week’s Trivia champions, team “The Sister Mary Katherines” who won the cash pot of $160. It looks like there will be some funnery at the nunnery in their future.

And the second place bar tab went to "Tour St. Pete". We hope they'll sightsee their way back to OKW this week for another visit.

Join us Thursday at 7 pm for another chance to gobble food, guzzle booze and test your useless knowledge!

For just a $10 team entry fee, the 1st place team gets the collective cash jackpot and 2nd place gets a bar tab.

You didn’t hear it from us, but 2 of the categories this week will be Geography and Science plus there will be more multiple choice questions.

But wait there’s more! This week, there will be a Jeopardy style finish. The category will be announced then each team will submit a wager from their total points before the final question. That gives everyone a chance to win at the end.

And remember, each team has the opportunity to submit topics for questions for the following week. AND the last place team gets to submit an entire category of their choosing.

It's crazy. It's fun. It's Thursdays at OKW!

Kick off Pride Month by grabbing your ruby slippers and following us down the yellow brick road! There's no place like Grand Central!
Teams will compete to fulfill challenges at restaurants, bars, and other businesses in our beloved Grand Central District.
After check-in and orientation (and drinks!) at Punky’s, your team will receive a location. Text your assigned judge when you arrive at the location with photo evidence that all team members have a drink (alcoholic or not, at your discretion), and then the judge will give you your challenge. All challenges include public chaos. Complete the challenge and you’ll receive the next location clue 15 min later. Each team will be assigned ten challenges.
We will crown two winning teams: Rapid Rainbows and Ridiculous Rainbows.
Register at www.shorelinedj.com/over-the-rainbow.html. Deadline to register is May 20th. Teams must be at least three people, but no more than six people. If you don’t have a team, enter anyway!
