Set Phasers to FREEDOM!
Dave

Fourth of July came and went and with it another round of fireworks, scaring dogs and scarring children for life. Thankfully, everyone at the quiz had enough fingers to at least deal with the 50/50 questions and the know how to destroy the BYOBB Round of Death! 8 Teams battled it out for top spaces this week and, while many tried, no one could dethrone A Sean Phillips Joint! It truly was American Freedom at it's finest! Many thanks go out to all the teams and to Evil Czech for making every Quiz Night a rollicking good time!   See You Next Time!Quizmaster Dave

Two Chris's Are Better Than One: Brought to you by gin

A wild and woolly night at the old Fire & Brimstone was the reward for a wonderful Fifth of July. With their stomachs still reeling from all the hot dogs from the previous day - presumably - and all the potato salad that had been sitting out in the sun - again, presumably - and probably sunburned a bit, but nowhere near approaching the poor soul I saw walking northbound on Columbia Center Blvd - cuz I'm into the whole brevity thing - who's sunburned skin matched the red-painted wagon she was pulling; my mom wondered, was she homeless; the rugged crew of the U.S.S.

The origin of cats is Libya?
Nami Nami Nami Pants

The origin of cats is Libya?   Now I know a lot about cats – I was a huge nerd about it when I was a kid, back when I thought cats were the shit. I know all of their different breeds, kitty body parts, and behavior odds and ends. Today I am much wiser. I now know that cats are the devil, aka I am a dog person. But of all the years of research and studying that I did that almost led me to veterinarian school, I had no idea that cats A. couldn’t taste sweet B. the majority of fossils could be found in the Libyan Tar Pits. Isn’t that right? Spelling doesn’t count during pub quiz, does it?   If there’s anything that Back to

Whoof.  Fourth of July weekend quiz.  Rough.     I mean, it's rough if, like me, you spent the bulk of your weekend drinking and hardly ever saw your own bed.  Gotta finish it off with a couple of Black Star brews though.  It's mandatory.  Court order.     And I didn't see anyone missing any fingers, or at least not new ones, so I guess everyone had a safe Independence Day!     But enough about the weekend, let's talk about the quiz!  We had rounds on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Talking Heads, and cats--     Oh...

Soccer, The Talking Heads, CCR

Its tough to get people to come out to a quiz the day after the 4th of July AND on the same night the womens US soccer team has a game in the world cup finals but you know what 4 teams came out. I'm proud of you. It means a lot. It couldn't have been easy. I mean US was up 4 to 1 by the time I got to quiz so its not like you would've missed much anyways. That and it was playing on every tv in the bar, but I totally appreciate your sacrifice. Sometimes people forget that when you sit right in front of me I can totally hear you talking. My favorite comment so far happened last night when a member of a team complained that the round on The Talking Heads had "like 3 questions in that

NOTE:  Had an upload issue; sorry this is late guys!   What a great quiz! 12 teams that played every round, and some pretty high scores! I gotta start getting ready for my epic 4th of July party this weekend (yes, it's that cool that I need a few days prep time) so we'll keep the blog short and sweet:   Round 1: Perfect scores to our top 2 teams, well done!

Yes, the mustache is real.

Hey everybody!  My name is Richard Rasner, but I used to be known as "The Quiz Pimp" (a nickname given to me on my first day ever on the job as a GWD QM.) I'm the guy up on the old-fashioned microphone calling out your quiz and playing awesomely terrible music during the scoring breaks.  These days a new venue change means a new nickname, so now I'm apparently The Quizmaster General.

When I'm not Quizmastering my day job is as a fine art nude photographer under the moniker "Unique Nudes" -- That's right, my day to day life is taking pictures of naked people all over the world. And if that doesn't make you hate me enough, I also photograph live music, and spend my evenings hanging out backstage with rock stars such as Billy Idol, NIN, Papa Roach and more.  You can check out my Facebook if you don't believe me, but sadly it's all true.  I'm not just a geek, I'm one of the rare super-cool geeks.

So why be a Quizmaster?  Because I love quizzes and I love all of you.  That's right, without my players I would be nothing.  Your amusing team names and crazy banter keep me coming back week after week.  So keep coming! Keep talking to me! And win those fabulous prizes!

-- Quizmaster out.

Actually Ross isn't even my name
Catwoman

Although I pride myself on my impeccable spelling (no, I did not hesitate as I typed that word) I do not expect quiz-goers to know how to spell all of our answers.   So when team Drewber decided to add “(sic)” to any question where they weren’t sold on their own spelling it was pretty enjoyable.  One thing they can spell: Cambridge Steamer. Was that an answer to a question? Nope; not even close.   On round 2 one of our correct answers was “Snoop Doggy Dog” and disappointingly almost every team wrote “Snoop Dog”.  I would have much preferred “Snoop Lion” but I guess our teams

What's up, Geeks? Thanks again for coming out last night!  We started off with Round One, which was all about cats. Apparently, the prophet Muhammad really liked cats; who knew? Round Two was our music round, featuring songs about crime. Round Three was our speed round; you had to name 8 countries involved in the TPP. It was super rough. Round Four was all about The Talking Heads and TV personalities. I think every team correctly id'd "Burning Down The House." Round Five was our visual round, featuring billiard scenes from different movies. Round

Adam was the main quizmaster, training Sharon, who will be the regular host at the venue. The main competition was the U.S. versus Japan soccer game.   Round one, which was all about cats, was harder than the teams expected it would be. Did you know that 70 million stray cats

"What is democracy but mob rule, and when has the mob ever made a good choice? Take the case of Jesus. On the day he was crucified, the Romans gave the mob a choice to free either Jesus or Barabbas, and the crowd went: "Mmmm, let's see, Jesus Christ, greatest man ever, or Barabbas, petty lowlife thief-I got to go with Barabbas...yeah, he's our man.

Happy Belated Independence Day Drinking
Bobaloo

After the fireworks and all of the day drink that was had on Saturday, Bar One rocked the house tonight with a solid set of teams and some hot competition as we roll right into July and all that summer has to offer. See: sweat.   Tonight’s quiz started off with a feline-related round that was purr-fect for cat lovers and terrible for people who are allergic like me. Round 2’s music round drew out the Jack Johnson answer for anyone who sort coos and soft-sings to an acoustic guitar, but sadly, it’s not Jack Johnson. We cruised into rounds 3-4-5 with Terminatory GenysAss pulling ahead early on, until Something

What a fantastic way to close America’s Independence Day weekend. Cari Lloyd just rocketed to the fame with the only hat trick ever scored in World Cup history assuring her rightful spot on the Wheaties box. It reminds me of the Sochi Winter Olympics when TJ Oshie became a household name after his shootout win against Russia; and then suddenly he is shilling for Enterprise Rent-a-Car (Oshie gotta eat!).   As Quizmaster I am always reminding you that anything is fair game as when it comes to team names as we are equal opportunity offenders here. It is all about context, its gotta be funny, and as the Gunny once said there is no racial bigotry here. However...just

No...The answer is NOT the Grateful Dead
Tara Kennedy-Kline

What happens when a group of strangers gather at a Taproom During the FIFA Women's finals and a Pub Quiz breaks out? Much beer is consumed, screaming erupts at inappropriate moments and 90% of the answers are apparently "The Grateful Dead".   Luckily, there was a small dog present and some kickass flatbreads...and Jodi and Chris showed up "Better Late than Never"...so the evening was redeemable.  The competition between Mud, Sweat & Beers and The Unicorn Pies, was almost as fierce as the soccer game...and twice as many red cards were thrown out for breaking of RULE #2 - "Don't F*ck with The QUIZMASTER!" but at the end of the game, the teams realized that Tom Foolery

The Cat's Meow
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

It is nice to see everyone back after the Fourth with all their fingers and toes. I hope you all had a blast, figuratively speaking. I also hope all our furry friends are recovering from the blasts from the professional and amateur fireworks displays alike. Round One: There’s More Than One Way to Skin This Round gave us some cat facts. Cat Scratch Fever is a medical condition not brought on by Ted Nugent, kitties don’t care if cream is sweet because they can’t taste sweet, and 70 million cats in the U.S. are homeless so today is a good day to adopt. That being said I think it is pretty funny that two teams put Stephen Hawking as the answer to who drove the

Hello. When I feel awkward I like to talk about my cats. If you stick around long enough I will definitely start showing you pictures of my cats. However, I am feeling mildly confident right now so here are some fascinating tidbits about this QM:

I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you this is the most stable job I have ever had also, this is the longest I have ever held a job. It has been a challenge committing to the quiz but, it is one I do well with whiskey.

I enjoy watching copious amounts of television, muttering softly to myself and bowling. My day job is in the mental health field. I would like to adopt more cats. I am afraid of aliens and think human/ alien relations will never really jive. I have a degree in cultural anthropology. I am greatly looking forward to the impending apocalypse and hope you will enjoy my quiz. I suffer from a mild form of social anxiety and often fall victim to fear farts.

See you on Tuesday,

Andrea
