National Trivia Day: Do You Know Edgewater and Davidsonville?

It's National Trivia Day, so we're taking some time to quiz residents on their knowledge of the community.

Everyone loves a pop quiz right? 

Before you run away in horror, it's important to know that Friday is National Trivia Day. This makes it a great day to test your knowledge of the area. 

Here are 10 questions. Some of them may be easy. Others may require a little bit of research here on Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch or elsewhere. 

I have some Patch gear you can grab from me sometime next week if you can be the first person to correctly answer all 10 questions. If no one can pull it off, I'll reward the gifts to the reader with the most correct answers.

Answers may be submitted up until Monday at 5 p.m. Good luck!

Question 1: Who was Davidsonville named after? 

Question 2: What local business has Pixar's "Mater" sitting outside of it?

Question 3: Who is the current Anne Arundel County Councilman for District 7? 

Question 4: How many "hot dog guys" work in the Edgewater and Davidsonville area?

Question 5: What national extreme sports star owns a home in Edgewater or Davidsonville?

Question: 6: What local eatery has an official prop from NBC's 30 Rock inside of it?

Question 7: What animal was "loose" inside a local high school last year?

Question 8: In 2012, what did Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch editor Jonathan Moynihan find living beside the Yellowfin Steak & Fish House?

Question 9: What was the name of the restaurant that went under in the same building before Bill Bateman's Bistro went out of business? 

Question 10: Who is the unofficial mayor of Shady Side?


This contest closes Monday at 8 p.m., and then I'll announce the winner. Have fun!

1: Davidsonville was named after Thomas Davidson 2: Pixar's "Mater" lookalike sits outside Miller’s Garage on Central Avenue 3: The current AA Co. Councilman for Dist 7 is Jerry Walker of Gambrills. 4: There are 2 "hot dog guys" in the Edgewater area, Darrel the Original Edgewater Hotdog Man and Fisher the Famous Hotdog Man. 5: NASCAR, Xgames, Supercross, motocross and movie star(Nitro Circus), sports driver Travis Pastrana, owns a home Davidsonville. 6: Kahve Café and Catering has an official prop from NBC's 30 Rock inside, but I don't know what the prop is. 7: A "tiger" was "loose" inside South River high school last year. 8: In 2012, Jonathan Moynihan found a colony of feral cats living by Yellowfin and Oak Grove Marina. 9: Pomodoro's and then Nonno's Italian Grill went under in the same building before Bill Bateman's Bistro did the same. If Edgewater follows it's pattern, the final successful business in that spot will be a funeral home.  10: Mohan Grover of Renno'w Market is the unofficial mayor of Shady Side.
