Perfection
AlexRice

For the first time in my three years of hosting with Geeks Who Drink, every team got a perfect score in the same round last night. You guys are all winners for your hot-out-of-the-gates performance in Round 1, but House of Pickles and Tuesdays w/ Alex especially so. They used that flawless start and a rare third 16-point round to put up 87 and 85 points on the night, respectively. Personally, I don't think it's possible to overplay Toto's "Africa," so I can understand why it reached #1 on the Billboard charts. "Grenade" by Bruno Mars, however... Thanks for playing! I hope to see you next week!

Lock yourself in a hotel room and eat greasy meat!
Colonel Chase

The alphabet. Such a great song, but did you know those letters are used in words? Well we started with a round that include a bit of both, which was initially great! Then it was on to audio, WOOOOOO! WOOOOO WOOO WOOOOOOOO WOOO WOOOOO WOOO WOO WOOOOOO. In olden times, there was a civil war in both America and England, which are different places. Round three covered things you should know about one or the other but not both. Round four had some magical questions on both cowboys and people from London. I’ve often wondered if there are cowboys in London, or if there are Londoners in cowboys. It ponders. Next was the visual round which had dead celebrities

Retired Colonel, full-time Quizmaster.

The story of Quizmaster Chase is a long and arduous one. One that stands the test of time and also serves as a cautionary beacon to others. 

Quizmaster Chase grew up deep in the heart of a pre-Twilight Olympic Peninsula. A land of trees and mountains and water, and apparently also a land of quizmasters. At that age when most children do, Quizmaster Chase left the family homestead and headed towards Seattle with nothing more than a napsack and a dream. 

Dazzled by the bright lights, the country kid made his way through University and a professional career before finally achieving the highest rank in the military, that of Colonel. Once a Colonel, Quizmaster Chase was able to live his dream of traveling across the Pacific to Japan on a goodwill mission, as well as serve as a non-official envoy to Europe during a brief tour just prior to the United Kingdom's General Election of 2010. Quizmaster Chase also serves as a senior advisor on beverage matters to several local governemnt entities in the state of Hawai'i. 

While residing near Seattle's Lake Union (for a quick seaborne escape if need be) Quizmaster Chase enjoys the fine world of microdistilleries and their wares, the interplay between water and land, and his trustworthy dog Jack.

Update: most of this is not accurate anymore, but Chase is even more awesome now that he runs Olympia.

Dude.  Tie for first again.  Imma Forrest Gump this. The rounds tonight were vaguely good…lots of available snark.   Honestly there were a few bits of time where ze quizzers seemed like they were trying to argue with me, so as per usual, I directed them (multiple times) to www.geekswhodrink.com for the complaining and/or answers they seek.  Hopefully it gets some use.  Not that I wish any ill tidings on the upper echelon of geekdom, but once in a while it's probably good to get some feedback from the peoples. Random reflections of Scoobs:  I often find it strange to analyze the

Hello beautiful(s). Have I ever told you how great you look from my stage view? Great. It’s great. I’m going to miss you when your real mom comes back and swoops you up in her arms and whisks you away to whatever magical land she has in store for you. Le sigh. We still have a month-and-a-half together. So how will we spend it? Why torturing you with nearly impossible rounds, of course.   Take tonight for example. Round number six. Sheeit, guys, that round was painful for most of you. Well, one team out of the 19 of ya’s scored a perfect eight, solidifying my theory that most of you are neither farmers nor professional mathleats. Round number eight also

Tonight was an interesting night to say the least. We had a lot of large teams and we filled the entire space tonight! Like, overflowing into other parts of the bar. We had a team of teachers who were definitely celebrating getting 5 consecutive days off. I even got to see a pencil drop (ref: mic drop). Plus one of them even had the periodic table of elements tattooed on her arm. Talk about a badass teacher. I think the highlights of tonights answers include: From the visual round: Betty Davis (Zsa Zsa Gabor), Russian Daniel Craig (Kirk Douglas), MC Hammer/Method Man (Suge Knight), Sean Connery/Cary Grant (Hugh Hefner), and Bill Gates/Andy Dick (Jerry Lewis).

I was struggling finding something to write and then I remembered it’s Ash Wednesday and we also just had primary so I guess EAT MOAR FIZH and go burn knee-sanders or something. Still upset about that You Make My Dreams fiasco?  Here, let me cheer you up.   The Winners, Losers, and Boozers RIP Sally Jesse Raphael stormed into first with a strong final round.

Factoids IN SPACE!
Tabitha

Being the huge astronomy geek I am and being that we had a question about the outer planets in Round 1 tonight, I thought I would share some random factoids about the gas giants that you may not have known. So file that away in the bank of usless knowledge because someday, we just might ask you about it later.   Jupiter: Good Guy Jupiter takes beatings from asteroids so we don’t have to.  Other times he’s kind of a dick and sends them our way. Saturn: No one knows why but there’s a giant fucking storm in the shape of a perfect hexagon at its north pole. Uranus: The first planet to be discovered by telescope. Neptune:

When I’m not running quiz, I am usually reading about space exploration and geeking out about adventures in astronomy.  One day, when I have a pile of cash to spend, I want to spend my nights taking pictures of space…because space is pretty damn awesome.

Wilford Brimley Told Me To Stay Away From Pi

When I was a kid, I remember one of my favorite shows was Green Acres. I’m not really sure why. I remember it was always in the same time slot along with The Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction. Mostly this is the part where I tell you I was poor growing up and we only had a big antenna on the roof of our house that allowed us to get “local channels” - that and our TV had dials,

Oh restaurant Spanish! Every bar and restaurant I have ever worked at has had similar dynamics in the kitchen. The cooks seem to follow a pretty set pattern. There always seems to be a scary kitchen manager that hates the front of house staff and it is clear why he works far away from the ass kissing interaction with the guests. He has a personality that is not fit for public consumption. The majority of the cooks are male and age 18 to 45. A few of them are surly, and these guys will probably be your  most skilled cooks that bring years of experience and a major ego. The majority of these employees are from Mexico, some are from other south American or central American countries and

Some aspects of ourselves we choose, others we are born into. I was born into being a geek. I blame it on being raised in a home covered in 1950's B movie posters. We watched Star Trek religiously as a family every Sunday night. Having your books taken away was the ultimate punishment bestowed upon us by my parents. Brutal, I know. It was inevitable I would be a geek. I am new to hosting pub quiz but that was only a matter of time as well. On a deeply personal note, I love turkey Legs! I look forward to getting my geek on while you get your drink on playing pub quiz. Cheers!

All Chaps Are Assless
Chloe

Judging by the amount of orange that the Twisted Pine quiz kids were wearing tonight I’d say that the Twisted Pine quiz kids are just as excited about the Bronco’s win last weekend as the other million people who showed up for the victory parade yesterday.   Here were some of the other highlights from this week’s quiz:   - We all got eight more reminders of why we’re glad we weren’t alive during the Civil War. Sure, Gatling gun is fun to say, but that doesn’t mean I’d want to be on the business end of one.   - We found out that all chaps are assless.    -

Omg... If you missed the part of the evening tonight where we were all introduced to "Jon Benjamin - Jazz Dared" on Spotify, you need to go listen to it right now... no seriously, stop reading, find it, and listen, I'll wait...  Okay, you back?  If you have any musical sensibilities at all, you should be laughing you ass off right now... wow... I love the melting pot of information and social discovery that happens at Quiz.  Thank you Hot Dogs! (And thank you for the "monkeys," too ;-)  It was  quieter night at 4 Noses tonight, literally... All the annoyingly loud non-quizzers were still hungover from the Super Bowl, I'm sure, so we had great

Adventures in Phonics!
Tas

Words are hard. Tonight, pronunciation came up a lot. It all really started in round 4, which dealt with cowboys and London's East End. One question involved the River Thames, and being a minor anglophile, I knew it was pronounced "temz." Yet, the guys on Die Hard: Tokyo Drift were insistent to sarcastically correct me every chance they got. "It's pronounced 'thaymes!'", I heard for the rest of the night. And even words that didn't fit it at all. How do you pronounce Kid Rock's breakthrough track? "Thaymes.." We don't get tempeh much in Iowa, despite our soy-centric agricultute, so how do you say it? "Thaymes." What city is Wilshire Boulevard in? Friggin'

It Was Sparks!!!
He Who Shall Be Ignored/Obeyed About 50/50

It got Sloopy’s attention! That’s for sure.   His friends were sure it was just the noise that startled him, but Sloopy knew he’d seen actual sparks coming from the quizmaster’s table.   And, apparently, he wasn’t wrong, as, after some sturm und drang, the QM started shouting rounds. Sloopy thought to himself, this guy’s got brass balls.   Thankfully, the rest of the night, the QM managed to get a microphone working and quiz went on as usual. Mostly.   As an Englishman, Sloopy

London vs. Deadwood
CoryChambers

We had a round tonight on London and the Wild West, and it's got me thinking--If I had to go back in time to the 1850s, I honestly can't tell you whether I would go back to the Wild West or to the heart of British High Society. I'm female, so let's face it--my options in both eras are pretty shitty. In the Wild West, I could be either a married lady in a temperance society, or a saloon whore. Given my passionate affection for whiskey, I have a pretty good idea of where I would have ended up. In London high society, my options would be either to make a good match at the age of 17 (which, my high school yearbook will attest, was not my best year), or to become a burdensome spinster by the age

  I learned something tonight. Turns out most people in Portland (using of course my small sample of peeps that frequent a rockabilly BBQ joint for quiz nights) have a much more extensive knowledge of  John Cusack movies and songs that contain variations on "WOOOO WHOOOOO" than they do about British history and Geometry. I'll get into details shortly. Tonight I walked into Salvage BBQ after fighting to find a parking space. See, Salvage is next to the Portland Expo, which tonight was hosting some sort of horseshit high school sporting event, so of course a bunch of families from east Bumfuck, Maine made the trip to the big
