Geek Bowl is coming soon!
Chaz_Bazz

What's up Lost Lake Cafe! You know I've been getting pretty introspective lately. I'm in the middle of trying to figure out a new review system for the 420 if you will. Not only to find out how I feel and act under certain strains but also to see what the differences are in a quantifiable way. When I have my system in place and I actually finish one, I'll show it to you guys. But you know another thing as been on my mind, and that's resonance. Not when it comers to light or sound; rather when something really sticks with people. I think I've noticed this for a long time and have slowly been able to give labels to those feelings like "collective effervesce" and such. I'm come

So you actually came here to learn more about me? Well okay. I'm 5'4, likes Steak, Boobies and Video Games. That's all you really need to know.

.....

You need more? 

Well ask me out or buy me a drink and you can know more. Or like, ya know, come see me host a quiz or three. DO EEET.

Super Blog
Cousin Chet

Monday morning was a rough one, wasn’t it? I’m betting I’m not the only one who didn’t want to get out of bed. And I know that we are all excited about the same thing. That thing being to the puppy monkey baby. According to its commercial, the only thing it can say is its own name. Though I’m pretty sure it can say something else. That being, “Please kill me. I should not be.” That thing was freaky looking. Oh, also the Broncos won the Super Bowl. So that was pretty cool. I’m not going to spend this blog talking about football, because honestly, no one really cares. It’s Geeks Who Drink, not Jocks Who Drink. Those guys are a lot

WET DOG WIENER
Nicole

The title says it all, last night was all about wet dog wiener.   They were the team that won our hearts and the game last night by a whopping 10 points!   Not! Purple! were hanging on behind them in 2nd.  But last night's quiz had it all, Touched By an Angel clips, I accidentally called John McCain John McClain, a possible drunk homophobe who was in love with Justin Timberlake.   I mean seriously,  if you're going to sit at the bar and yell out how much you LOVE Justin Timberlake and he's your "man crush" you don't need to add "no homo."  If you do insist on shouting "no homo" I'll just

Flawless Victory?

With the Salt Lake Valley inversion in full effect, outside felt like Hell. So, what better place to be than the Devil's Daughter! Interesting night, had a couple of first time teams including a nice reunion of cousins, Peterson's Son, sadly under unfortunate circumstances. I hope the staff at the DD and I helped you have a good time. Our missing Arborist returned to the Bonezone, but Jaron was missing and we hate him for it. All of us. The Dab Five was a team of sports reporters, likely there to cover The Dick Butts amazing performance. After warning Wes that I

I’m Giving Up Lent for Lent
JenKiper

Mardi Gras season is wrapping up and everyone is throwing a party or a parade or both. We geared up for party part, but probably won’t be given up anything come for Lent. I always tell people that I gave up Lent for Lent, but most folks don’t appreciate that. I do know that we will have some tasty fish fries in the coming weeks and they don’t care if you’re Catholic or not as long as you have cash. Before we run off to get a plate of fried goodness, let’s see what happened at quiz. Sometimes cover rounds are a bust. Last night’s Sesame Street parody round was pretty good. Not as good as that Muppet round or that Chewbacca sings the hits round from

And Quiz Grew Three Times In Size That Day!
Lisa Pizza

I'm not saying that I'm a quiz Grinch or anything, but quiz was really bonkers last night. After last week's four-team night, I figured that people were gearing up for midterms and that this week we'd have another dangerously intimate quiz. Wink. NOT THE CASE. As it turns out, eleven friggin' teams showed up. ELEVEN. And the nerve of you! How dare you all show up during Dry February! I mean, it was fun, but wouldn't it have been cool to do Jager Bombs with me? No? Oh...okay. Fine. Anyhow, let's talk about this quiz. Round 1: I don't really want o fill any of Matthew Perry's holes, but I guess at least we worked as collective to fill this one. This

Lovers' Quarrel
Hunter

It was a unique night at Danny’s. First of all, each “team” was actually a single quizzer. This led to a showdown between lovers. At least, they were lovers when they arrived. As for their status when they left, I can only guess. The choices for team names might give us a clue to their fate. The young lady, our winner of the night, called herself Jake Sucks. He beau on the other hand went with Pookie Lover. So perhaps there was trouble in paradise before the start of the quiz. It surely didn’t help that she went home with the 1st place prize, and he went home with

A Return to the Scene of the Crime
Dustin

Why is it a return to the scene of the crime? Because once upon a time, 'lo many, many....months ago....like 8-ish months ago...The Rose and Thistle is where I auditioned when I decided to give this Quiz Master gig a go. And I read a practice round of questions to a room full of regulars who all were given license to mock and heckle me and next thing you know I'm doing these shiz twice a week. And so I had no prob playing substitute Quiz Master this Monday night, filling, pinch hitting if you will for a post Super Bowl Quiz night. And a bunch of you must have hit it HARD on Sunday. So credit to the 3 teams of hearty souls who did make it Monday to play the quiz. Thanks to the

That's just like, your opinion, man.
Cupcake

So I'm rooting for my man Bernie in New Hampshire tonight! I hope he is rocking his old man socks off at the primary. My friend recently left to go to Las Vegas to campaign for him. It sounds like a lot of fun. If I didn't have to like work, and go to Geek Bowl (boo hoo for me, amIright?) and host quiz and stuff, I would have thought about joining her. But instead I'll just have to keep spreading the word of my (hopeful)savior. Have you heard the good word? Do you have a few minutes to hear about the gospel of Bernie Sanders? Just kidding, I'm not gonna get all preachy about the man I want to be president. That's not why you came. You want to know about quiz. Right? Otherwise you just came

It's A Threesome @ BEAU JO'S!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Fierce-ish competition this week as we debated the holes of Matthew Perry that he needed to have filled. Oh, the late 90’s, how ridiculous an era you were. But not as ridiculous as the modern era, where it’s difficult to distinguish the difference between a TV show where literally nothing made sense, and a bunch of commercials about cars where Matthew McConaughey talked about….. I have no idea what.   Things we learned this week: - Okeechobee is a word I can actually pronounce. - It was quite bittersweet for Bittersweet Symphony. - The birds nest was no more ridiculous than the 8,000 terra cotta warriors

Denver Broncos Super Bowl Champions!
Stephanie P

The day after the home team wins the Super Bowl...is the best dang night for a Geeks Who Drink pub quiz! The vibe at Recess Beer Garden was incredible, utterly delightful and downright festive. 11 teams (that's right, 11 like the number of Broncos players on the field!) faced off Monday night and proved once again that Denver is truly the home of champions. We whooped and hollered and ate Broncos orange lollipops--but not all of that at the same time, because we're clearly smart enough to know about choking hazards.I'm always pleased to see some Arrested Development-themed team names, and with no prior planning or collusion two teams chose fabulous AD names...sounds

Quiz Is For Lovers
Natasha Noir

Public Brewhouse showed the love last night. The love of micro-brewed, local beer and love of good company. Love for an enormous dog, who tapped out after the first three rounds. Team Horsedog, you were missed, but not as much as your furry friend. Speaking of furry friends, why does Cookie Monster go so metal when covering songs? I can see why so many guessed that the first clip of Round 2 was a Ramstein song. I get it. You were all wrong, but I get it. More importantly, I would like to say that my Monday night teams are getting smarter or something. Seriously, we have had ties for first place or super close scores for the last few weeks. Last night, it came

I would love to begin this blog with the tale of the Babybel, but maybe you should have just been at Crossroads last night for our quiz. Not only would you know what the Babybel was all about, but you would also have had the opportunity to get to know way, way, way too much about my personal life, not only how much I still miss Alan Rickman (RIP), but also too much about my parents and some of the awkward things that were quintessential to my awkward years. I guess I was just feeling like a human or something for once, it was weird. Such an over-share, just like the Creepy Superbowl Babies over-shared their origin stories with us.   Although

Once upon a time there was a girl, whose only goal in life was to leave the great state of Texas. She dreamt and hoped and prayed and wished that she could escape and move to some big fancy city in the north. But dreaming and hoping and praying and wishing don't make things happen. Thank goodness the little girl was smart enough to figure that much out. So the little girl decided that the best course of action was to turn into a super nerd who was awesome at everything and somehow she finagled an escape plan to Boston, which is where she remains to this very day. And she doesn't dream or hope or pray or wish for things to just happen, she simply kicks ass and takes names, but is really, really nice about it and gets shit done. The end.

Alright Alright Alright (and other words of wisdom, errrrr, pieces of bullchite, from Matthew McConaughey)
shadude (the long winded Persian)

Seriously, the only good thing to come from Matthew McConaughey’s pretentious commercials for Lincoln Motors are the parodies Jim Carrey did on Saturday Night Live. And to think, we did an entire round on “Vaguely Inspirational Bullshit” proffered to us by Mr. McConaughey. Okay, maybe I’m just a little jealous because I don’t have his abs….but hey, it’s not like it’s my job to look hot from the neck down. (But unlike him, I have it where it counts the most: from the neck up….and I’ve got legs as well. SO SUCK IT, McCONAUGHEY!!!) Speaking of vapid “Matthew”s….It was rather amusing to ask questions

Previously, On QUIZ
Carlos

Hey you crazy rowdy quizzers! Thanks for spending another lovely Monday night with us at the coffee joint that kicks the most butts per capita in the city of Austin! It was a fun quiz for fans of Matthew Perry (but not so much Friends fans in general) because of our deceptive, yet easy-to-decipher concepts. At least you smart kids get all our jokes. We appreciate that one. Maybe you'd like more Lisa Kudrow questions? It's always nice to see her in a movie every now and then. Saves me the imdb trip because those are, like ugh, SO taxing. You seemed to know your Jim Henson buddies thoroughly, if I may say so myself. And I may. But the crowning achievement of the night

Sunday was Super Bowl. After what I thought was an explosive halftime show, my Monday radio waves was filled with Coldplay's "Adventure of a Lifetime", including being everywhere on my drive home from Fuego's. I sorta regret it being in my GWD playlist; this might get old soon. I thought I'd give away a prize to the best team name. This went to team Team. While they only able to join us for a short while, they totally knew how to fill Matthew Perry's hole (hello!).  I was blown away by everyone's knowledge of Lincoln commercials and Lost in Round 3 (...or maybe I shouldn't be blown away by people recognizing the mindless ramblings of Matthew
