Amondeuz

After being consistently wonderful for quite some time now, the Black Lotus Brewing Co. is updating their menu! This means, in addition to most of the delicious dishes they are currently offering, there will be some amazing new items for us to try out and surely enjoy. As an added bonus, they have a sort of “coming soon” menu where you can try out some of the new items before they make their way onto the main menu. You have GOT to get down here and check this place out. When you do, Geeks Who Drink

The Story of Zach
Russel

Before we start this blog, I gotta tell you guys something: Sometimes, I get cocky, overconfident, and stupid. After having an amazing 18 teams last week, which saw Doyle’s packed like a dessert plate at Old Country Buffet, my arrogance got the better of me, and I made a little wager with a fellow quizmaster, Zach VanSomeren (Weapon Z) of Ft. Collin, Colorado. The terms were simple:   Highest team count Highest Round 6 average

Harambe's not dead
Drew

Well ladies and gentlemen, things have significantly calmed down since last weeks events in Charlotte, people are again venturing from the comfort and safety of their own homes to again join us among the land of the socially living. We saw a large turnout last night, lots of new faces, and some great new competitors who take things very seriously, a strategy that seemed to ay off for them. What a rousing competition we had last night, and a few people got the chance to poke fun at me for once. So come on out next week same time same place, and don't forget to sign up for the newsletter so you can get a leg up on your competition!

Queens and French Fashion: Do I See A Hidden Agenda Here?
Leif Adamson

And back again for another quiz at the amazing Hangar 24 brewery. We are seeing an uptick in team numbers again. Including a second week of seeing teams I know from other venues coming out to join my quiz. I really hope to keep seeing all these regulars. Anyway, enough mushy stuff. You came here to read a review of our quiz. Our first round had teams identifying answers with silent letters, with the same silent letter somewhere in the clue. And only the Speshul Snowflakes, the team I know from other venues, came away with a perfect score. As always we had our audio round. And it was pretty straight forward asking teams to identify the artists and song titles

PSA: Canned Air is Not For Inhaling
The Susanturpin

After having been out last week and a couple of weeks before, it was definitely nice to be back at Third Base! I missed the crap out of my quizzers, and let me tell you, I really felt the love coming back Thursday night. I promise we won't be apart from each other for that long again... well, at least not for a long time. I can't make any promises if Drive-By Truckers comes to town again like they did last year. And honeyhoney, too. Anyways. Thursday night brought us rounds on bookworm-y things (which ended up kind of being awesome to score, not even gonna lie), things that came at us from the last week of September, and US Special Forces and French fashion! You wouldn’t think

So now you got me singing Coldplay?!
John's smirking revenge

The last time I was at Eastwood’s, kids, I was just like you. A lowly player, tucked into a corner of the bar under the team name of ‘John Solo.’ I did well that night, and then disappeared into the darkness afterwards. (Or, took an Uber, whatever…) But subbing for your usual fearless leader, I have to tell you guys, I had a blast. Maybe it was the steady flow of alcamahall, but nothing pleases me more than having a ton of you sing along to ‘Sweet Caroline’ as it is universal bar law. We left last night learning several things. Number one, I am great at ruining your childhood fondness of the Muppets by reminding you that Gonzo most

Thank You HBO For Keeping Me Out Of Prison
Sir Quizalot

I remember when I first started watch Orange is the New Black, I thought it was unbelievable. I don’t mean unbelievable in the sense that it’s so good that I don’t believe it, I mean that I just don’t buy it. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s some great story writing, acting, directing, and cinematography. Plus it has the signature Netflix cliffhanger formula that forces watchers to binge watch each season within 24 hours of release, causing thousands of people to miss work and get fired or forget to feed their kids. The lesbian scenes are a bit indulgent, but I’m certainly not going to complain. I’m not saying it’s not a good show, because

Very different from "Raze the Bar," which involves a lot of looting and arson
QMC

Hello Iron Bear!   Tonight was a really fun quiz. We got to debut a new format for round three!   If you’re a regular attendee of GWD quizzes, you know that we like to play around with round three formats, in order to make sure not every quiz goes exactly the same way. When I started working for the company oh-so-many years ago, we basically just had two formats: speed rounds and multiple-choice. And we still do those, because they’re great, solid concepts. But in that time, I’ve seen so many new formats get added to the mix, and it’s great fun for me (and hopefully for you, too) to watch them grow and evolve

My Way
Justin Mazouat

Thanks to everyone who came to M Uptown last night for quiz! It was intimate, yes, but once any confusion was taken care of, we were off and running for what was, for my money, one of the tougher quizzes we've had recently. Round one is usually a good way to ease everyone into quiz, but not last night! We came out firing, but everyone kept up perfectly. Round five, wasn't difficult, as every team got a perfect score. The REST of the quiz? Tricky tricky. Maybe not the video round so much. High scores all around, except for number three, which nobody knew. The REST of the quiz? Tricky tricky. Tomorrow I fly out to Florida everyone! I'll be working

Silence! I'm Quizzing Here
Sarah Linster

Hey Everyone! Geeks Who Drink were at the Public House last night and as usual, we had a fantastic time.  Katrina, KP, Missy and Stefani were fantastic at bringing us food and beers! I tried duck bacon wontons last night and they were out of this world. You should try them! What did we learn last night? The first billionaire was John Rockefeller, they are making a live action movie based on the app Fruit Ninja, and Wu Zetian was China’s only female emperor. We also learned that me yelling “Silence!” into the mic helps quiet the room very effectively J There were 12 teams playing last night for fortune and glory.  Second place went to Hillary's

I can no longer speak after shouting half the quiz after my mic broke, but luckily I can still type.   It was a fun quiz.  It was a sad quiz.  We forced Bragadocious to join us and play.  They lived up to their name.  We said goodbye to regular quizzers Andrew and Katie, who also won tonight as Tebow Makes It Past 3rd!  So gonna miss them :'(   We'll just have to keep up the good work here at Resolution in Anchorage.  Join me next week for sandwiches!   In the meantime check out all things quiz in Anchorage

Geeks Against Beach Ball Body Shaming

That's right, we said it. You rock that Beach Ball Bod (BBB) Babe Ruth! We had a fun quiz last night. More and more people joined, so there was some healthy competition for all. And some unhealthy snacks provided by The Closet. Eat as much as you want, they said. The alcohol kills fat! (Statement not FDA Approved.) Not gonna lie, Rounds 1 & 2 were a struggle this week. But when they are a struggle for everyone, it works out I think. The Queen's English joined in Round 3 and were able to catch up in no time because of it. Well done gentlemen.

Wow!  The Tavern at St. Michael’s Square.  I can’t believe that I’ve finally gotten the invite to host here.  Honestly, Barry Manilow has been playing in my head since Robert asked me to fill in.  Looks like I made it, indeed!  Robert is constantly bragging about this place.  “Oh, my venue is the best venue.  They’ve got the best food and bar staff anywhere.  The quizzers here are the best.  Best, best, best.”  We hear you Robert.  But, I’ve never gotten the opportunity to host here myself.  Is it all real, or has Robert’s venue hubris taken control?  I’ve finally gotten the

No, Proust did not write Make Way For Ducklings

We had a great turnout last night at The Rising, as we were once again in the main room. Quiz night coincided with a Rhinegeist tap takeover, meaning that the bonus question winners got a free Rhinegeist beer. And the quiz itself was a fun one, as we all heard songs with titles that you wouldn't want the person next to you on the bus to say. We also had a This Week in History round, a round on literature in which your score total depended on the last question in order that you got right, and a visual round on fake brands that everyone did awesome with.

Another Week, Another Sweet Quiz.
Charles

Not a lot new this week.  I shopped out a 4P Spider-Man arcade game, it's pretty sweet.  I failed to wake up early some days, succeeded others.  I don't know, it's just another week, but that's pretty okay.  I got a new hat that I'm pretty into, I wore it to quiz, so there's that.  I guess I'm not always terribly interesting.  Good thing quiz is also cool.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  The english language is weird.  You just look at words with a bunch of extra letters in there that let you know how to pronounce them, but try and enunciate those silent letters and you'll get thrown for a loop.

Troy D.

Why does Wile E. Coyote keep buying things from Acme? I mean, let's ignore the fact that a coyote with seemingly no source of income is able to buy things like rocket shoes and instant boulders almost at will.  First off, given their failure rate, he really should look for these things elsewhere.  Secondly, the CPSC should be cracking down on this company.  Look at Samsung: a couple of phones explode, and a jabillion of them are recalled.  But a rocket sled explodes and nothing happens?  I mean, that's bad.  I'd be tempted to say it's an OSHA violation as well (if catching roadrunners is indeed his job).  And what about those "instant earthquake pills"?
