What's Wet And Hot And Three Months Long?
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Hope you're having a heck of a summer out there, friends! Hope when you're not sweltering under our Big Yellow Death Sphere, you're taking plenty of time to kick back, quiz it up, have a beer with friends, and then binge watch Wet Hot American Summer when it drops at the end of this month. Yes, this is a thing I am super interested in seeing, but I also wouldn't shy away from a little advertising kickback, if David Wain or someone happens to be browsing through the Geeks Who Drink blogs. Speaking of unreasonable stuff: how much fun was last night? I know skilled trainees aren't a rarity at the British Bulldog, but Jillian really owned it! She was there on time, came prepared, asked

I have nothing to say about my Monday.It was very calm. Very chill. I did some grocery shopping. I peeled and cut two pounds of carrots and one poud of sweet peppers. Oh! I made some cool noodles. Gluten-free spaghetti tossed in olive oil with greek olives, fresh dill, lemon zest, feta, baby tomatoes, and salmon. 10/10, would make again. PSA: Barilla makes a surprisingly good gluten-free noodle. Or maybe I just haven't had real noodles in a long time. I don't know. It's not that I've been eating gluten-free noodles forever. It's just that I don't eat very many noodles.  Noodle.Anyway, here's quiz...Round 1: TBH, no one

HAM HORN
Patrique

Last night, I'm not sure if you could feel it but the Quiz dream-world shook. A pure quiz-ception took place.   R3Q1: How Many Categories are in a standard game of Trivial Pursuit?   Obviously the answer is 6, but a quiz question about Trivia? Quiz boner.    There were a ton of quiz boners and quiz lady-boners in the audience last night as 20 teams came out for the slugfest that was Gourdough's pub quiz. Rounds on San Fran, Metallic Movies, Missing words, Sudoku, Couples, and Freud proved that no one team had the 100% winning combination.   After a first place tie, Kathleen Turner

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.

Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.

He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit. 

Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.

Board Games + Math Games = Quiz Fun/Frustration
JenKiper

Tonight, we bid a fond farewell to July and the welcome the slow realization that summer is almost over. For those who long for cooler weather, it can’t happen soon enough. For those who are teachers, I can hear them all utter a wordless scream that just can’t be explained. I’ll miss lots of things about summer like tasty radler beers and music festivals. I won’t miss heat index warnings and mowing the yard though. Farewell summer and on to quiz! We’ve all played a board game or two while growing up and there’s more than a few of us who continue to play them as adults. But the return of a board game themed quizdoku round was a tough one to

I'm Not A Brewster, I'm A Son Of A Sea Cook!
Cousin Chet

Okay. Okay, okay, okay. I guess nobody else has seen Arsenic and Old Lace. And that is a goddam shame. This is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. Here’s a quick rundown of the movie; Carey Grant just got married and he’s about to sweep his new bride off on their honeymoon. However, before they head out, they stop by his Aunts’ home to let them know that they got married. However, there’s something he doesn’t know about his aunts. They’ve been renting rooms to lonely old men, poisoning them, and burying them in the basement. They enlist their brother Teddy, who believes he is President Teddy Roosevelt. The reason he keeps digging in

Busy night at Devil's Daughter! Great to see some new faces and as usual, great to see the regulars. Let's get a few things out of the way:    The bear on my hat represents the California state flag. It's blue to coordinate with the color scheme of the Los Angeles Dodgers. There are no blue bears in California, as far as I know. Just clearing that up because it was the cause of some controversy during the quiz.    But more importantly, Congrats to Chance & Tiffany! They got engaged. It was amazing.

Ahoy quizlings! Ya know, with all the crazy and terrible things going on in the world, it's nice to just be able to show up some place where the microphones are always sparkly and the beer is always cold for some quiz. It's a bummer that Ellen wasn't feeling up to quizzing tonight but I was more than happy to step in. A big virtual high five to the gent who completely swept the bonus questions (how does getting hammered for free feel?) and big ups to Was Mushmouth on Quaaludes?, Uranus Should Meet My Venus, and Sweep the Leg for taking home those sweet Wyman's gift cards.

The San Francisco Treat
Paddycake

You know I have often wondered why Rice-A-Roni was said to be the treat of the gayest city in the country. I mean, Rice Pilaf is not exactly something I immediately attribute to San Francisco. If anything, rice dishes are known to be a southern thing. So, I decided to check out Rice-A-Roni to find out what the deal was.   As it turns out, the only reason it is considered the San Francisco treat is because the company is there. Rice-A-Roni was actually invented in 1958 when Vince DeDomenico (the son of the founder of the Gragnano Products Inc, which later became the Golden Grain Macaroni Company) when he added dried chicken soup mix to rice and macaroni. This was

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Nerd Adventures, Part One
Jakers

Over the past weekend, I had a rare combination of fun events coincide that once again revealed to me that I am a nerd, and at least middle of the road or further down that line that your average joe. This is a fact that I think I take pride in. It's hard to say for sure - I don't know the landscape of my feelings as well as I like. But I enjoy being who I am, so it stands to reason that being nerdy suits me.   This Saturday was dominated by board games. I spend almost the entire day over at a friend's house, (or rather, his parents' house) playing some board games that I had never played before, and some that I had. If you've never played Puerto Rico, I'd recommend it.

I was a bit out of it during the quiz last night, having consumed a prodigious amount of alcohol over the course of the weekend.

What is it about giant-sized Jenga that makes otherwise reasonable adults into a bunch of raving lunatics. Every time I’m hosting quiz, someone decides to play Jenga. Now, I’m not roping it in with the giant-sized Connect-Four that is also at the bar. That shit is awesome. It’s a game that requires tact and cunning, pitted head-to-head against an opponent. Jenga, on the other hand, requires…. balance? The ability to feel which blocks move easily and which ones are firmly in place? Every time, it ends the same way. The tower falls. I don’t see why everyone has to make a huge deal about it every time. It’s literally completely

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.
