Trivia – The Perfect Workout for Your Brain


Trivia is an exciting game to play. As you cram random facts into your brain, it exercises the most important muscle in your body – the brain. Like other muscles, the brain needs to work out as well to keep you mentally sharp and focused. There are astounding benefits to practicing trivia on a weekly basis, which is why we encourage our customers to join us every Thursday night at 7 pm for Crab Corner’s weekly trivia in Las Vegas.

Below are the incredible benefits of participating in trivia. If you don’t often join in this fun game, we hope this article will sway you to attend or throw your own game night.

Enhances Memory

Trivia is an entertaining way to improve your memory. As you remember new facts, your brain exercises the memory portion of your brain and increases your ability to recall things faster. This skill comes in handy in the future.

Improves Cognition

Psychology section of About.com states that cognition is "the mental process involving gaining knowledge and comprehension." Having a strong cognition allows you to learn and retain new concepts better. When you play trivia, it stretches your brain each time you have to revive information you don't normally use. Since you are answering questions about different topics, the game cross trains your brain as well.

Helps Your Brain Perform Better Under Pressure

When you practice answering questions under time constraints, this exercises your brain to perform better under pressure. This is a great skill because you learn to think clearly when faced with other pressures in your daily life. You can make rational decisions efficiently in stressful situations, which may make your life easier!

Reduces Stress

Stress is detrimental to your body. The American Psychology Association states that stress can interfere with our ability to live a normal life. The longer the stress lasts, the worse it is for both our body and mind. Playing games or investing time in a hobby relaxes your body, which decreases the amount of stress in your life.

The Birth of Weekend Brunch

Brunch is the meal that falls perfectly between breakfast and lunch, which is between 10 am to 2 pm. It is too late to be considered breakfast but too early for it to be lunch. The word itself is a portmanteau formed from "breakfast" and "lunch." There is usually an exclusive brunch menu that combines the best of both meals such as an appetizing eggs benedict, French toast sandwich, flavorful breakfast and lunch trios, mimosas, bloody Mary's, and much more.

But where did brunch get its start?

The history of this delectable meal is hazy. However, we did do some intense digging and came up with some fun facts about the birth of weekend brunch. Crab Corner hopes this fun history lesson makes you appreciate your next meal mid-day meal.

Origins

The word was first used by a British writer, Guy Beringer, in 1895. He wrote an essay "Brunch: A Plea," which made a compelling argument for lighter meal in the middle of the day. He said, "Brunch is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper; it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week." Beringer argued eating a meal later on Sunday’s would make "life brighter for Saturday-night carousers." Those who enjoyed drinking on Saturday could still to eat breakfast because they would not have to wake up as early. He also suggested for this new meal to serve alcoholic beverages instead of coffee and tea.

Clearly his plea was heard. Now brunch is a weekend event many people look forward to and appreciate immensely. People are willing to wait hours just to relish in this meal with family and friends. It is a celebratory meal that marks the end of an amazing weekend with a mimosa in hand while also setting you up for a great Monday!

Looking for an incredible brunch in Las Vegas? Stop by the Crab Corner Maryland Seafood House to experience bottomless mimosas, bloody Mary’s, and delicious Sunday Brunch dishes. We will make sure you always leave feeling satisfied with your experience and your meal. Both our convenient locations are located just off the Las Vegas strip. There are daily specials for you and your family and friends to enjoy. There are even non-seafood items to appease those with food allergies! So forget about the Bellagio or Caesars Palace. Those places are too hard to get to, and their brunch is way overpriced. Stop by a place the locals trust – The Crab Corner.

3 Of the Healthiest Fish You Should Start Eating TODAY!

What you put into your body directly impacts your health. Clean eating is a habit many people should adopt. Depending on what you consume, it can decrease your risk of cancer, ward off depression, improve the suppleness of your skin, better your eyesight, and many other health benefits.

If you want to embark on an incredible journey of eating a well-balanced diet, you should consider adding more fish to your meals. However, not all of these sea creatures are the same. According to Oceana, written by Ted Danson, one-third of the world's fisheries is "unable to regenerate their population fast enough to keep pace with the rate at which they are being caught or killed." The epidemic of overfishing is only one of the many problems harming our oceans.

Thankfully you can enjoy succulent fish that is good for your body and eco-friendly. Below is the "Super Green" list of fish you can enjoy. These have the least pressured-habitats with the highest levels of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and limited amounts of mercury and dioxins. 

1.    Pole-Caught Albacore Tuna

Typically, tuna has more toxin and mercury compared to other fish. However, when it is pole-caught or troll in the western United States waters, they have lower levels of mercury because they are caught at a younger age. Pole-caught albacore tuna is harder to buy in the grocery store. The good news is you can buy this fish online from Heritage Foods USA.

2.    Salmon Wild-Caught From Alaska

Farmed salmon has twice as much unhealthy saturated fats versus wild-caught salmon. Both have the same levels of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. So if you want to eat clean, we recommend opting for wild-caught salmon from Alaska. Target has eliminated farm raised salmon from their stores and only offers wild-caught. It is fairly priced as well!

3.    Wild-Caught Pacific Sardines

In the 1950's, sardines also went extinct. Since then, the fisheries have rebounded, and it is one of the most sustainable seafood items to eat. You can get them at a natural food store. Sardines are so tasty you can add them to almost any dish. Eat them plain with rice or add it to a sandwich. Throw some in a salad or in pizza. Take your pick!
