Showcase Showdown
Oliver

A lot of times, I’ll get asked what kinds of questions there are during a Quiz.  It is difficult to say because on one hand, the questions appear to be completely randomized, but on the other hand, they appear to be carefully selected and grouped into specific categories.  And then there are times when a category is split into two sub-categories.  For instance, last night there was a round on both physics and sex, with some questions combining the two subjects.  Anyway, there really is no way to explain the kinds of questions we ask at the Quiz.  The best way to know for sure is to drag yourself to one and experience it for yourself.  A smart move would

We've All Been Hot For Teacher
Lady Busty

My first crush was on my 5th grade math teacher. I don't remember his name anymore. I do remember finally learning how to divide fractions in his class, though. I also corrected him on the difference between petticoats and petit fours. And, the best advice he ever gave me was to never point out to a teacher if they gave me too high a score. Oh, and he taught me the expression, "circular file" for trash can. My biggest teacher crush was in 1st year of secondary school (7th grade to Americans) in Scotland. His name was Mr. MacHugh and he taught English. He let me alphabetize his library books during lunches. A group of us would spend our lunch in his classroom, chatting, while he came

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the central library of a local school district.

I live with my husband and our rabbits, chickens, ducks, turkeys, quail, goose, cats, dogs, rats, goats, guinea pigs, and turtles.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3
Daniel

Is pretty darn good. I think maybe I have finally burned out on the who Tina Fey rule of three humor and puns. Ok, not really but I don't find this show as gut-busting. It also doesn't have as great of a story arc as the last season. Feels like not a lot happened.  The third season of Kimmy Schmidt plays all the hits. They're still as good as you remember, and based on all the self-referential humor, the writers do too. I'll watch it again and get back to you.  Great seeing everyone, until next time.

Who Is Bandit?
Amanda

Today is the day that CAKE came back at Bad Wolf. And of course they took the cake, pun intended (I hope that works...).  In second place came Save Bandit!  Honestly, I don't know what that means but I'm sure he's in trouble so lend a helping hand. I am impressed by USS WinaPrize by always being in fifth place.  There was literally no movement the whole game which, honestly, takes some skill.  Also, a shout out to Definitely Not Last for definitely not being in last.  Congrats you guys!! Well have a great week ya'll and we will see you over Memorial Day weekend!

Honestly, Call Me
"Other" Eric

     It's really weird getting to this age. We all know death is the only true thing promised to us in this life, but, it's still surprising how we react when it happens.  I usually try to tell myself "well, they had a good run" or "they were loved by many". I've had some close people pass already and I'm only 40. Many "gone too soon" for sure. Chris Cornell was one of the voices of my youth. I watched the rise and fall of Grunge. I cried when Love killed Cobain. I make you guys listen to Mother Love Bone for god's sake! (Another gone too soon). So, even though I know it will happen sooner or later, I can't help but feel sad on this one. Depression ain't no joke

Such a great night tonight, lots of teams showed up to compete for the grand prize!  We battled between rounds of sex and physics, and pot smoking movie scenes, and artists that may or may not be in the Hall of Fame, but ultimately "Tom Selleck's Mustache" won the day.  I believe I speak for everyone when I say, I can't wait for next week, when another epic battle will commence and we will crown another champion.  Can't wait to see you all then!

Resident Egon

Pleasure to meet you, Congregation Ale House! My first daytime quiz, your first time with me as your QMMF, and likely the first time out in public in a long long while for those two guys screaming about The Mighty ONJ. Well despite the propensity to get #physical, I prefer remaining #intellectual, #sarcastical, & #irreverent-ical. Next time guys, instead of shouting answers after being told it’s rude to do so, show some pride in yourselves. Play nice. Anyway, I was talking with the kids at work about the things that entertained us as children. And today it was just great to see such a wide spread of ages throughout the venue. Some of you will know what I’m talking about

Moms Gone Wild
Meggan

Tonight I went a bit crazy, kids. I had two glasses of white wine. Because tonight I found out in Round 5 that Reign has been cancelled and will not come back this fall. I am heartbroken. Netflix suggested this show to me after I finished watching The Tudors, The Medicis, Versailles, The Last Kingdom, Vikings, and every other "fresh take" on European history that the various streaming services have to offer. You guys, it deserved to be cancelled. It's terrible. But I love it so much and I don't care if you're judging me for that. It's like someone who grew up watching Baz Luhrman's Romeo+Juliet and loves Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette decided to make their dream show come true. The worst

Well hey there! I'm not Ben no....I'm Erich, filling in for Ben here at Jack Mac's. Now, i've been either playing Geeks Who Drink or Hosting quizzes for over three years and I have to say that I got broken in so to speak playing and having a blast at Jack Mac's on Saturday nights. So in some ways, it's a bit of a nice homecoming for me. I definitely missed all the different Texas beers and definitely the poutine and crab dip! As far as quiz went, it was a fun time with 9 teams coming out to enjoy a fun night at Jack's. What was even fun was getting to see a few people that I have seen at my other venues. A total shock for both of us and quite a fun and relaxing time.  Some things

Throwback Saturday
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to the Geeks Who Drink Blog! We are recapping a fantastic evening at Darcy’s where we took it back to primary school. We remembered that adjectives describe things, that a simile uses the words “like” or “as” and practiced some European geography. Great work remembering things that you learned in school many (many) years ago.   In the end, Butt Stuff? pulled ahead and were the real MVPs.   Things we learned tonight:

That tall guy who talks a lot during the quiz...

I can't stress enough how much quiz is at Geno's! Seriously. I've hosted at a few different venues now, and I have to say, Geno's has become my favorite venue of all! The staff, the food, the room... The folks who come out to play quiz each week... All of those elements come together and make for a fantastic night of quizzing. As exemplified by last night's quiz.  Almost the entire venue was playing quiz last night. It was awesome! We had a couple celebrating their combined birthdays last night. They brought a bunch of new folks to the quiz and it made for some really good energy in the room.  We also had come a whole lot of returning players,

Like Diamonds. In Beverly Hills. With Adjectives.
SirYon

We all know what a simile is, right? Right? No? Really? Okay…well, after round 2 you should know what they are. That was kind of a giveaway early on. And it was fun. Don’t you just love fun rounds? You know what those are called? Every round! This one was particularly inspiring, though. It was the source for most of tonight’s music. I was moved to search through my music library to find all the songs with a simile in the title. After weeding out the slow songs and the 20-minute-long drone tracks, I had almost a whole night’s music! That was easy! So yeah there was a theme to like half of tonight’s music. In case you caught on. Or cared. I know you cared

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

Summer Quizzin'
Jonathan

This was our first quiz after the area colleges let out for summer break, but it was still a good one. Though it started off with some bad news - that the kitchen was closed to bar patrons - it eventually took a turn for the better when we discovered that the kitchen had re-opened! Huzzah! In the end, it was a close competition. (The Team Formerly Known As) We're Hungry left with the top prize, with Team Pancakes earning a respectable second place finish. See you next week!

School's Out for Summer

This was my last Saturday before school is out for the summer.  Being that during my "day job" I'm a teacher, I am looking forward to getting the heck out of dodge for a couple of weeks starting this Friday.  So, for the next 2 Saturday's I will be away.  But have no fear, you will have some amazing Albuquerque Quiz Masters to sub for me, and Paul, the Perfectly Goofy, will still be here in his usual Score Keeper capacity.  Ironically, it was Paul who was out this week due to some business trips.  He was covered by the always amazing Fernando.  Together with all of you we had an amazing night!   We started the night off with Adjectives!  Then
