A New Secret Love...
BenBernstein

Dear Beer Market, I'm just writing in to tell you that I think you're amazing. Your waitstaff and barstaff are friendly and knowledgeable. Your off duty bar staff even sticks around and plays pub quiz with truly inappropriate team names. They laugh and banter with the quizmaster. Everyone has a good time. You have Med students who know the names of every fake hospital that's popped up on TV in the last 15 years. Also they read books. Books make you smart. Reading copious amounts of books is not ONLY a way to show off how much smarter you are than others, apparently some people do it for fun. You certainly are a more impressive breed than some

I really love my job, family, and friends. My parole officer would agree I'm no longer a threat to myself or others. 

I was born and bred in Rochester NY. This city is charming. I've come to really appreciate all the hidden gems around town. There's nothing better than spending a cold saturday morning at the public market sipping a cup of coffee and doing a crossword puzzle with my close friends. 

Against better judgement and doctors' orders, I love the Buffalo Bills. It'll work out in my favor eventually. 

Geeks Who Drink is seriously the best pub quiz I've been a part of. I love it. 

 

 

I don't believe in Russia.

If There's Any Doubt, Save the Ribs!
RobotNarwhal

Well, you’ll be happy to know that I have been back in the shed.  I spent the better part of Sunday wearing heavy gloves with my hoodie duct taped around my wrists, long pants, and heavy boots.  I slowly removed items from my shed, and sprayed spider killer (which also kills scorpions, apparently) into the dark corners.  Two widows were forcibly removed, and I shall continue to be cautious about more.  I was so overcome by the 93 degree heat, clothing, and probably chemicals, that I forgot at the time it was August and thought it was July.  Now, it’s September, and I’m still wondering what happened to 2006.  Anyway, enough of my problems,

Hip to the Chip
Hoffstradamus

Yankees v. Red Sox. Michigan v. Ohio State. Ken v. Ryu. The list of storied rivalries extends further than the eye can see, and many of these will be battled long after I’m dead and in the ground. However, I recently settled one disputed match-up so heated that I’ve been worried about the blowback from voicing my (very correct) opinion: Corn chips are better than potato chips. It’s true! Everything about them is better: the crunch, the taste, the dip-ability. Their staple brands are Fritos, Doritos, and Tostitos. What does potato have? Lays, Ruffles, and…some other stuff that people will SWEAR is better than any of that. We get it, Utz and

Can You Dance Like A Hippogriff? Na na na, na na na, na na na.
VoldeMartini

Yesterday it was back to school for some very lucky folks, and a very special kid. Yesterday, according to J.K. Rowling, the almost normal named James Sirus Potter was sorted into Gryffindor upon his first year at Hogwarts. So, if you’re reading this… sorry you never got you letter. Theory is that anyone born between 1985 and 1998 didn’t get their letters, because Voldemort destroyed all Muggleborn records. So, keep your chin up kid. There’s still hope. For your kids. And don’t try to go instead. That’s cruel. Just lurk around Hogsmeade and drink your firewhisky and be bitter. You know, I’ve got a problem with HP’s

RIP Wes Craven

May he haunt the dreams of his fans for decades to come. If you’re reading this, go find a Wes Craven movie on Netflix or your streaming service of choice and watch it tonight before you go to bed. Go ahead, rebel against your parents age-old advice and give yourself some bed-wetting caliber nightmares in his honor.   Perhaps now that Rumble in the Pub qualifiers are over, and perhaps because the Dog Days of Summer decided to grace us with their presence to remind us that September != Autumn, we had a much more casual evening of quiz tonight at The Ogden. We started with 6 teams, but the casuals quickly retired from the field and left the evening to our 4 regulars:

How About a Tall Glass of Tactical Nuclear Penguin?
JakeSchwingshakl

Nothing like the day most people go back to school to run a Quiz. Or the day before that dreaded day anyway. In any case, it was a great end of the summer at Puddler's Hall. And yes, I realize the end of the summer is generally after Labor Day, however since most people aren't back in school until after Labor Day, tonight is the official end of summer. Of course for me and most college students in the UW system, that "Last Day of Summer" day is tomorrow since classes start on Wednesday.  In any case, it is possible to go out with a bang when you have rounds about Princess Diana, Soap Operas, and obscure kitchen appliances. Not to mention awesome beer names. I mean, Baron Von Awesome?

You Just Can't Put A Price On A Pyramid...
Pope Pepe

What a Quiz time was had by all!!! Last night was one of my favorite types of nights. We had the casual Quizzers, the die hard regulars and the folks who’d come to become regulars. We ran the gamut of Quiz type personalities. We also had a really tough Quiz. Tonight was a first. I did NOT have a single team Joker Round 2. I’d like to think that this is the playlist that the President has playing while he’s talking to foreign dignitaries and trying to sell deals.“Hear that? Sly and The Family Stone. Classic.

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.

Oy Canada
Tudor

I was truly upset tonight when my good friend Antoine asked me what I thought would be an easy question: Why is America better than Canada? I could only come up with 2 solid, indisputable answers: it's warmer, and we were first. Like any red-blooded American, I want to hate Canada. Antoine hates Canada real good; I want to learn how. Canada is America's Ned Flanders: better than us in every way, even in humility. It's really the only reason to hate them. Really, one of my examples of American Superiority can be dashed by a light jacket. The other doesn't look so hot when you look at, say, the Middle East. They were first, too. They may not have American Football, but at least they don't have

Missed Quiznections
AJ

Alright, every time I see a missed connection, it reminds me of a poem I hated. For those that didn't know, or couldn't figure it out, I was an English Major in college (and look, ma, I AM WRITING AS PART OF MY JOB.) As an English Major, I had about a billion classes about analysing writing. When your in a major that prizes critical thinking and viewing proper poetic forms, you tend to talk about the same 3 pieces of writing every semester. If you're talking about short stories, you're going to be talking about Hemingway at some point. If you're talking about plays, here comes Shakespeare. Finally, if you're talking about poetry, for some reason, in the school I went to squirreled above the

The Jello Belt is my wrestling championship of choice
MikeSchramm

We had lots of fun at Hennessey’s tonight, even if the teams were a little light. With only three teams in attendance this evening (and a few free agents at the bar), the action was a little hotter than it probably should have been, with all of our teams fighting with a margin of only one point each after three rounds. Round 4, about geographical belts, started separating things out a bit, with only one team knowing that Mormons’ penchant for a Kraft dessert landed them in an area called “The Jello Belt.”   A historical missed connections round also grabbed a few quizzical looks, despite your QM’s great example

The dawn of a new era ... allegedly
Tex from Pittsburgh

Well, gang, wasn't that a ton o' fun? I had a lovely time as your quizmaster tonight at Barnett & Son, where it was my pleasure to train young Andrew, who will be your new permanent host, along with his mysterious pal whom I didn't meet tonight. I have been assured the mystery pal does, in fact, exist. I had one of those experiences tonight that I thought I'd never have: I saw naked breasts pressed against the glass. However, to my dismay these weren't lady breasts pressed against the glass partition of a waiting room in a Turkish prison but rather the hairy chest of one of our male quizzers pressed against the glass window of Barnett & Son. Still, I took it as a compliment,

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:


I am married to a lovely lady and live in West Denver with my two lovely cats, Lucy and Trousers. We don't have any kids yet and my wife says we can't name any kids Lucy on account of that's what the cat's name is. If I'd have known that I would have named the cat something else, you know? 


The name of the gang is my neighborhood is the "West Ninth Fuk Puppets," judging by the graffiti in my alley.


I collect Cthulhu statuettes, paisley ties, aloha shirts, animal skulls, briar pipes, expired passports off of eBay and smashed pennies. I used to collect pogs but then they stopped selling them.


I've never broken an arm or leg, and never had chicken pox. I am immune to bedbug bites and nearly immune to mosquito bites.


I've been in three fights in my adult life and won 1 1/2 of them.


I went to Spain for my honeymoon. I had diarrhea for seven of the 10 days of the trip.


I won the Phoenix Public Schools spelling bee for 3rd grade in 1990. I got 100 percent on all my spelling tests in 4th grade except for the word "masquerade," which I spelled correctly, but I got a half point taken off because my sloppy cursive made the "u" look like a "v". But to hell with that. I spelled it correctly, give me the full point, right?


I must have done other stuff besides that, but that's about all I can think of.


UPDATE: The above is all still accurate, except now I live in East Denver and have a 2-year-old son. Also, I'm not sure what the gang is in my new neighborhood.
