Just A Good Time!!!
Wavie

This Tuesday’s trivia was of light-hearted fun and a few people seeing if they EVEN knew a few things or less, for that matter. With all newcomers to the game—Al’s Best, McBears, CK, and Vertex—it was just a matter of time seeing who all would actually last till the very end. We found this hard truth out by Round 6 when only Vertex and CK were left remaining to battle it out for the night’s title of Trivia Champ! At that point, the two teams were neck and neck in what turned out to be a quasi-“battle

How's everybody doing,

 

My name is Ricky and I originally hail from the Washington, D.C. area and transplanted myself to Michigan in 2005 to achieve bigger things at Michigan State (GREAT WIN in the COTTON BOWL RIGHT?!?!!?) Since thenI've been a resident of the Greater Lansing areaa and made myself a fixture in the regional music landscape under the alias of Wavie P. (Check out the links I provided (Instagram: @Waviep)) and recieved my BA in Hosptality Business in 2010. Having traveled a few places, made someamazing connections and exploring alldifferent opportunitites that have come my way, GEEKS WHO DRINK is an another leg on this journey I call life. It's been fun sofar and know I'm gonna make it that much more so with the Nutty Spartans in my area. Any quizmasters that happen to pass through town, give me a shout and I'll show you some local Green & White Hospitality.

 

Much love

Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte Now Infamous
Just the right amount...

Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte finished first this week with an impressive lead. Goodell Sacks Brady received third after an ipressive finish from Shaken not Stirred. What a great night. Royals offered an impressive win with some of the most amazing plays I've seen to date. The highlight of my evening was seeing not one but now three teams I can now call regulars. Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte takes the cake. Pun intended. I've enjoyed hanging with these players for almost a month now. I genuinely perk up when I see the team arrive. They changed their name this week just to give me a hard

My audition night I show up in a button down shirt. I wanted to make an impression but not seem too overzealous. I was told that I looked just the right amount of douche to do well in Johnson County. It hurt so good... My first night of training with the same trainer I asked so am I still just the right amount. And it stuck. So here I am. Just the right amount, and just for you.

Hey guys, I came back!  I couldn’t stay away from you for too long.  I don’t even know what the point of Tuesdays are without the quiz happening.  It’s my Constant.

All those years in Hebrew school...
AlisonRudd

Tinder week 3: A few signs of intelligent life have been detected, though the ones I've seen disappear rather quickly. It is almost as if they are afraid of true human contact. Perhaps they're hiding under the security blanket of ignorant bliss, convincing themselves that someone out there is looking just for them, when in reality, my right-swipes are flooding the market and devaluing themselves by the hour. These poor schlubs actually think that they're going to find a mate by being selective. Yeah, maybe my future low standards baby will have weak bones and a poor sense of self but at least I won't

Trophy Hunting, Geek Style
MelissaSummers

No lions were injured during tonight’s quiz. Instead, we hunted for correct answers, lured the music round out of the preserve, and shot the video round while it fed on the bait. Half Assery skinned and beheaded the rest of the teams and will be having their $25 gift certificate stuffed and mounted. Round One was all Z-words. Like Zimbabwe, home of the Hwange national park, and Zaire, which is now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo. In honor of the ultimate letter of the alphabet, I made a playlist of nothing but songs whose titles contain a “Z” word. We came close to having a dance-along to “Zorba the Greek”, which was

A lifetime’s experience with socially awkward geekiness has led inevitably to Geeks Who Drink.  The Groveland Tap is my first gig, which is a return home.  Drinkers in my family have been imbibing there since it was The Fairview Palms, and my kids played their first game of pool at BB Dixon’s.

A cubicle slave by day, by night I hang out with amusing drunks either for Geeks Who Drink or driving the PedalPub, a non-motorized party bus.  I also bike, homebrew, play scrabble, read everything, and volunteer for Surly Brewing’s SGAD volunteer corps.  I have two kids (that I know of), a spouse, two cats, and an antisocial cockatiel named Füd.

I ride bikes a lot and enjoy hanging out with people who are a lot smarter than me.

Biblical considerations: Ted Cruz and Veggies Tales

A full house, an inebriated river rat, and frequent fliers all around! Never short of a good time, we had enough fun for 2 barrels of monkeys- not the Dollar General brand, either.   So many unique names tonight, and I couldn't help but giggle at Team Hawking up the wrong tree. To be honest, I just see Stephen Hawking bumper-carring a tree like a handicapped lumberjack. Please tell me I'm not the only one.   With a variety of round options, some were so foreign to teams I received drawing of frowny faces, kitty cats, and an obscene gesture with a particular finger not specific to the left or right hand. However, I did

Lucky there's a Quiz
Sean Franson

Do other people watch as much Youtube as I? People know that Youtube is amazing. That's a given. I'm constantly on it, at the gym, before I go to bed, you name it. It's a great place.   I watch a lot of speedruns on Youtube, which I think I've written about before. Name any game you played when you were younger, there's a speedrun of it on Youtube. I haven't found an exception yet. You'd be amazed how many man hours have been sunk into perfecting runs of games you got sick of years ago. AMAZED.   But I've got so little energy today. I lifted for the second time this week, and I just want to talk about what happened at the quiz. So, in summary;

I'm so excited to be hosting Pub Quiz for Geeks who Drink! I moved to Portland 4 years ago with my wife, Gayle, to attend grad school at PSU. I've since earned a Master's Degree in Theater, with an emphasis on Performance. Hopefully I can fold some of that into rocking the mic like a vandal. Did that make me sound old? I feel old.

So we had a good amount fo people come out to enjoy a nice cold beverage served up by our newest G Street family member: Kate! She's new to our bar, and she's pretty freakin' rad, but that's a given. Let's get down to quizzness shall we? R1- A round on SF? Here in the Sacramento Valley, we call it The city. And most all of the teams demonstrated some pretty bitchin' knowledge of our older, way cooler sister in The Bay. R2- An Aduio Round for the rest of time! Or at least that's what all the songs were about. I'm glad that not that many people knew Paradise by the Dashboard

Batman vs Superman
JeffreyMetius

I’m really not that excited about the new Batman vs Superman.  It seems like it’s just going to be DC’s attempt to give fan boys what they want.  While I appreciate that they aren’t doing what Marvel waited to do until civil war…which is put your biggest names to fight each other.  DC got it right by coming out the gate with their biggest names facing off.  But in doing so they are putting their biggest card right off the bat.  They are even giving the comic fan boys the exact suit from the comic where superman and batman faced off.  But spoiler, wonder woman wasn’t in that…and DC already played a huge bomb they could

In my time when I'm not hosting quiz I enjoy playing hockey and taking my jeep up into the mountains to get away from everyone.  While I'm up there I ponder the many parts of life...like why do hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns come in packs of 8...and yes you can explode and yes you can implode...but can you just plode?

Just think about it.

Have you all noticed how the D&C has gone from bad to worse to worstest? The paper proper is half the size it used to be, I myself am terrible at grammar/punctuation and I’m pretty sure I am finding mistakes in it, and worst of all, supremely worst of all, they make you pay to use their website.   What news source, especially one rooted in physical newspaper, makes people pay to read their articles online? I mean, c’mon. They literally block out the words and then if you don’t pay they’re like, oh you can read this if you take this survey. First off, ain’t nobody got time for that. Second, they realize

This recap brought to you by: Grandmothers
Kyle King

Hello everyone. Quiz happened last night. You were there. So was I. We shared some laughs. Sorry I got a little upset last night. That one guy who kept shouting out answers (wrong ones at that) got on my nerves. I hate when people do that. And those people are all the same. They don't get laughs at work or home so they think they will get it at the bar. And they hope that if someone laughs it's a person of the opposite sex so that way they MIGHT possibly have a chance at getting laid. But no one laughs and then they are lonely the whole night. But they're too deep in so they just continue because they don't know how to stop. Then they want to catch an attitude with the QM because they had

Gibson Bar was in rare form last night. For those who weren't present we will skip all the deets about the dudes from Team Affliction (Not an actual team of quizzers as much as a bunch of Jager Bomb enthusiasts, I guess) and get to the meat and potatoes of the night. That would be our SECOND straight Lip Sync Battle in as many weeks.  This week we saw Team Amanda Hugnkiss put some work in with Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." The two noblewomen put forth an impressive display but then things got buck wild thanks to a showstopping rendition of Kelis' "Milkshake."

Game Night Anyone?
ChrisPothoven

I discovered a board game recently called Velociraptor! Cannibalism!. Yes, it's a real thing. I might have just bought it for the name. Turns out it's pretty fun, too. Just think mutating raptors running around eating anything and everything to make more raptors. I'm also waiting for my copy of Exploding Kittens to show up. Again, that's another real game. Try crossing The Oatmeal and hot potato in a card game and that's exactly what it is. Also, keep an eye out for Breaking Bad Candyland. It doesn't actually exist yet, but after this quiz I'll be surprised if someone doesn't try and make it a thing. After surviving this week's quizdoku, Where is Our Team? came in

Did You Get The Pancakes?
Radius

I was lucky enough to sub for Quizmaster Christy (again) because she decided to lose her passport and move to Canada. I'm not entirely sure what I just said was true, but that's okay. Toward the end of the evening, I decided to order a Shinkicker (a namesake drink for The Shinkickers) and it was glorious. Kind of summed up the night to be honest. Lots of energy floating around Joe Sent Me and our 4 (4.5) teams really kept it tight. Round 1 was all about 'Z' words. We had classics like Zucchini, Zappos and Zinc. Also, there was a reference to Zelda - did you know we have a Nintendo quiz coming up? You should check it out! Round 3 was a particularly fun around. Outside

Hello, Internet!

Darius is originally from New Jersey, so please keep that in mind when he talks about his love for 24-hour diners (garlic bread and chocolate pudding is a typical order). Some of his favorite things include dogs, zombies, and snickerdoodle cookies.

You can usually find him with a stout in his hand and scruff on his face. Darius likes to make YouTube videos and do theater things, too. Despite his super tough look, he's kind of a sweetheart and will most likely melt if you pay him a compliment. Keep paper towels handy.
