Arizona's British Open Pub Celebrates King George Day on July 23 with Snooty Tie and Prissy Hat Contest
Scottsdale, AZ, July 19, 2011 -- Scintillating, shocking, adorable – all words that describe King George VI’s reign and the man, himself. That’s why British Open Pub is joining all of England in celebrating Betfair’s King George Day on July 23 with its own Snooty Tie and Prissy Hat Contest, and King George trivia games throughout the day.
The Betfair Weekend is a celebration at the Ascot, England’s most famous horseracing establishment. During the weekend, people dress up in semi-formal attire. Men wear ties and women often don hats for the celebration.
“In honor of the Betfair Weekend and King George VI Day, we’ll be running the Snooty Tie and Prissy Hat Contest all day,” said Gregg Troilo.
People can enter any time during the day by coming into the British Open Pub and having their picture taken with their Snooty Tie or Prissy Hat on.
“At 8 p.m., we’ll be announcing the winners and giving away the prizes,” said Gregg Troilo, owner of British Open Pub in Scottsdale. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The pub is extending the celebrations with trivia challenges each hour, throughout the day. Each trivia challenge will pose a question about King George VI and his reign, and players will compete for a variety of prizes.
King George the VI was recently immortalized in The King’s Speech, a movie starring Colin Firth as the shy and speech-inflicted King George.
“We think people will have fun with the contest,” said Troilo, “especially since we are pulling several questions from the movie The King’s Speech. Other questions will be more challenging.”
King George was royalty at a time when his family was a royal mess. He gained the throne when his brother abdicated in 1936 to marry a divorcee. He was the last Emperor of India and led at a time when many nations succeeded from the Commonwealth. He led Britain through World War II as America’s principle ally, insisting on living on rations of food and water, just as did his people. And he insisted on protecting Buckingham Palace, which was within the bombing zone, with a pistol and pledge he was defend it to his death.
“He was a well-loved and honored king,” Troilo said. “The people loved him because he put their interests first, and we love him because, inside, he was just a regular, flawed guy trying to muddle through and do his best in crazy circumstances. He sort of reminds us of ourselves.”
