Every Tuesday is Fat Tuesday when you hate yourself
PeteStegemeyer

Hey everybody, thanks for coming out to play with us last night!  We're really getting the team average up to around 10 teams per quiz, which is AMAZING.  Seriously, thank you guys so much.  Competition has been fierce so far in 2016, especially amongst our regular teams!  This week it was Speedy and Displeased that ended up taking home the grand prize, with Wookiees of the Year coming in a close second!   We had a whopping 3 16 point rounds last night, so it gave all of the teams ample opportunity to climb to the top.We had a lot of fun, but we also learned a few fun facts! Here are some of my favorites:

Originally from Wisconsin and unable to shake the near Canadian levels of politeness and cold resistance(+2) I came to NYC by way of South Korea.  After spending 7 years in the Army and traveling the world, it's nice to get my roots down somewhere awesome.  

I'm basically a big kid. If I'm not in school or doing stand up I love reading, writing, and playing disc golf, so hit me up if you want to do some of those things too. 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Old School Bernin' Up Last Night!
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Fans!   I am someone that is interested in politics. In fact, my wife, Emily, says politics are my sports because I know a lot of the players, I check updates a lot, and I sometimes live tweet the debates (@Bersonality) along with several other things. On the way to our pub quiz, I listened to the speeches of Hillary, Bernie and Donald (quite a stark contrast). So it what a pleasant surprise last night! I arrived at the Old School Brewing Company to find a Bernie Sanders Primary Watching Party.       TIDBITS FROM THE QUIZ (AKA What did we learn?):   I apologize if my

Full Frontal Collusion
Amanda

They warned us it might happen! Three teams had mentioned  the possibility of joining forces this week. One team because they would be missing members and the others, well, let’s be frank, didn’t like losing. Or coming in third. Sadly, the Land Sharks came in too late to get in on the colluding and had to have a go at it with just two team members. Dexy’s Midnight Runners teamed up with with Beer Pressure to become Beer Runner.

Million Dollar Playbook?
The Gould Standard

I misspoke tonight, and in doing so, possibly conceived one of the greatest film ideas ever. Million Dollar Playbook. I was trying to make reference to Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar win for Silver Linings Playbook, but there were several Clint Eastwood references tonight as well, so Million Dollar Baby combined with Silver Linings Playbook. And now all I can picture is Robert De Niro boxing Jennifer Lawrence in makeup to look like Hillary Swank and then Bradley Cooper has to decide whether or not to pull the plug while in makeup to look like Clint Eastwood. It would be terrible, but amazing at the same time. Quiz results! Seven teams started

Dreams of Field
SonyaDee

So I finally got another job, but I consider Geeks Who Drink my REAL job, so don’t worry about me focusing less attention on you guys…I will continue to be as much of an asshole as always, promise. We had some interesting rounds this week – backwards movie plots and a challenging round seven. Also, for the first time ever, we had all teams score exactly the same on one round. Which effectively makes that round a pointless time-filler as far as scores are concerned. But good on you for all identifying 5 Nathan Lane films! “What Did We Learn This Week?”- We learned that you can’t just write “donkey” every time you don’t know

Don't Take Dating Advice from your Quizmaster
The Suit

So turns out I declared more about my dating life than I anticipated when the movie "Trainwreck" was mentioned last night.  Don't really know what that says about me, but it probably has something to do with the words "train" and "wreck."  But that's something for the therapist to decide. MORE IMPORTANTLY, last night's quiz at Gaslamp was phenomenal!  We had five teams, some regulars, some new, who just wanted to straight party down!  But, unfortunately for them, quiz is serious.  No party.  We had fun anyway. Especially the newer team Milo Gang, I haven't seen them before but I really enjoyed their energy.  I wanna say they

The Suit is an enigma. The Suit will master your quiz. The Suit has no shame. Hence why the suit talks about himself in the third person. If you ever see the suit not in a suit he's not technically the suit, he's just a normal guy named Matt. Both Matt and The Suit will tell you what's up after a gin or two. The Suit is semi-famous for his catchphrase "I was going to make a joke but I couldn't think of a good punchline in time."

A Sliver of My Childhood is Dead
QM Kwi

                So a sliver of my childhood died the other night.                 A few weeks ago at quiz one of our audio rounds featured a clip from The Fast and the Furious. The original. Hearing the clip brought a pang of nostalgia as I had grown up with that film. And while I was by no means obsessed with it I really enjoyed watching it.                 I’m a huge Vin Diesel fan by the way. Deal with it.

#Hashtag
The Dark Lord of All

I believe last night was the first time I have ever been boo'd for giving the correct answer. But I have learned my lesson, from now on only incorrect answers.   Third place last night went to my favorite team of all time. They are beautiful and handsome at the same time. With their faces dancing around in my dreams I can proudly say that my third place team was the #hashtag un-choking E=MC Hammered.   Second place went to a team who demands to always be topical and dirty (just like my love life). Well done, Johnny Already Told Her Once.

  I was a vigilante crime fighter when my wife died. I guess this lifestyle wasn't easy being a single father but I found a way to involve my beautiful daughter, Arizona. I was a true family man. When the heat got too hot and the times were too fast I decided to retire.

  Finding myself bored I took up archeology and soon found myself questioning if I could see if I could steal the declaration of independence. I drove angry knowing that I was the ghost rider. I pulled up to face/off with the security guards. I know the guard was a bad lieutenant and I could see what was going to happen next. It was going to be a grind house. I listened to the weather man to make sure I would be gone in 60 seconds but sometimes you need adaptation to make sure you don't receive the kiss of death. Needless to say I failed, in terms of luck I got snake eyes. To this day it is not stolen. The whole event was caught on an 8mm camera and after a quick trip on con air I found myself in the city of angles. In prison I gained the nickname Bangkok dangerous because I was truly a lord of war. Some even called me the ant bully. Time in jail moves slow like the season of the witch.

  What I learned was that you always need to be mindful of trying to steal a national landmark you should bring more that just a hive bees.

National Pizza Day Forever!
JolieKeitel

Hello Hello Dear Reader! We were back at it at the Stadium Inn last night, despite all odds.  To be completely honest I thought none of my Geeklets would make it to Quiz last night because of that little ONE MILLION person party happening in downtown Denver to celebrate some sports thing or another. But once again my loves proved me wrong, not only did they show, they showed up to PLAY! And they CRUSHED IT!   I was a bit concerned, a predecessor and follower AUDIO round? A fictitious meeting minutes round? AND an AMAZING Saved By the Bell OR Shakespeare round?!?!We got it all done and learned a lot.   But

Meryl Streep is usually the safe answer…
Matt

But unfortunately, Firefly Was Rightfully Cancelled discovered that last night, just putting down her name for Best Actress Academy award winner whenever it is asked does not always work. However, everyone clearly did an excellent job on their bible studies, giving us the correct order of the first three books of the Torah. And a surprising number of us agreed that the movie Spice World really wasn’t that terrible. At the end of round 6, after trading the lead a few times, Just Wingin It beat out Distractingly Sexy by one point, and took home the victory.

A Crazy Week Has Ended!
JeffreyTanguay

This last week has been incredibly busy. Between buying a car, preparing for and getting through the Super Bowl at work, doing massive cleaning projects and trying to socialize with visiting friends, I am freaking exhausted!    The Super Bowl was great! I didn't get to see a lot of it, but I did manage to scrape out a few minutes and catch the end of the game. The Broncos owned the field from the beginning, though, and the defense apparently killed it. I was pretty happy yesterday to skip the parade and accompanying crowds and shenanigans in favor of a few extra hours of uninterrupted sleep. I also got to miss all of that crazy traffic. I passed over I-25

This is a bio:

I like to ride my motorcycle, even though other motorists scare the crap outta me.

I enjoy cooking, especially for friends. Alcohol is usually integral to this.

I read a lot, but mostly fiction. 

I have a crazy music collection. Music is awesome. Well, a lot of it at least.

I have seen tons of movies, and have a watched a few of those waaaay too many times.

I am just good enough at playing guitar to not completely suck at guitar.

I like getting to the tops of things, so climbing and hiking are my favorite outdoorsy stuff.

It feels so good to be back!
Tracie

We missed you guys!  I had not been there for two weeks, so it felt like it had been forever!  I will admit the vacation was nice even if I did end up in the hospital when we got home.  For some that would sound like a booze filled epic cruise, so I will just let you keep thinking that’s what it was.  I apologize if I was a little shaky and sweaty last night; I’m still not quite 100%.   Thanks for spending your Fat Tuesday with us! Let’s get down to the quiz!  The crowd seemed quite pleased when Round One was announced as a backwards movie plot round.  We covered everything from really good movies to 50 Shades of Gray in that

Back in Black

My day job is highly seasonal and in this slow season, I get to engage in quite a bit of what I like to call “Wikiboredom.” Thus I learned the following yesterday: There are 4 classes of flatworms (platyhelminthes), 3 of which are primarily parasitic. Socotra, an island in the Arabian Sea, has been described as perhaps the weirdest looking place on earth. In 2012, the US’s 12th most valuable export was human or animal

Ten Ten for Tim Tams!
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Well dammit, children. We finally get some BRAND NEW BLOOD in the jackpot game, and they pull a 10-10. SO FRUSTRATING! But let’s still give Tim Tams a respectful round of applause. In only their second appearance at our quiz at Fado Irish Pub, they took the title with an 87-84 victory over I’m Giving Up Trivia for Lent: See you in April! First of all, YOU BETTER NOT TAKE OFF FOR FIVE WEEKS! Secondly, there are much better things to give up for Lent than quiz! Why not give up chocolate, sodas, or touching yourself just like everyone else does? This week, thirteen years ago, the most bizarre and amazing thing happened.

Goodbye, Mr. Cashew
Travis

Yes, all good things must come to an end. After almost 2 years of hosting Geeks Who Drink at the Cashew, that time has come. But it wasn't because we didn't make every Tuesday night a great event. The Cashew itself will be no more in a few days, and a new bar will emerge.   As I did at last night's game, I want to thank them for having me along all that time. It was a blast. I wish all the employees I worked alongside the best of luck in the future, as well as to the new owners as well. For me, it was a complete blast. It'll be a time I miss. But it's time to move forward!   Congrats to all the wonderful teams that came out last night. I could tell
