Thank You Rob Thomas!

Man it's a hot one... like seven inches from the midday sun.   Seriously, it was hot last night.  Was it hot everywhere or just up by my table?  I was dying... not just from the heat but also from the fact that 19 TEAMS showed up for my debut Quiz Master night.  I mean, Holy Moley!!!!  I was expecting something closer to 10, so I was blown away by the turn out.  I was also frantically trying to keep with all that grading!  But keep it coming... I would love to see Saturday nights start averaging 20 teams!   There were some great teams last night, including Quiz Master Ian whom I took this location from.

Our Barman Sings Led Zeppelin, He's Cooler Than Yours

Heya Geeks! Great time last night at Geeks Who Drink. The San Francisco did have the Holly Holm fight on, so one of the questions did read basically like this: “Which city is named after a fiery mythical TAKE HER DOWN HOME GIRL WIPE THAT SMUG GRIN OFF HER FACE. . . named after a fiery mythical bird.” She's from my home state. Gotta' support the locals, ya' know? Confession time, here's what I got: It took me like, a solid five minutes to look at “Gluten Tag,” and realize it was supposed to be pronounced Gloo-ten Tayg.

QM Conrad's First Solo Adventure
QM Conrad S

Overall, my first solo-hosting adventure was a success. I joked that we were meeting as a support group of Geeks who didn’t win the raffle for badges to Comic-Con. Even though many of our regulars were at Con in San Diego, we had a good turnout. Many people were frustrated by the ‘They’re both mighty, alright’ round focused on authors who had fought in war. I did enjoy looking up after each question to get nastier and nastier glares from the quiz participants. I’ll take this opportunity to plug the email list – where subscribers can get some of the topics ahead of time and study the topic before Quiz. The bounty continues to be alive. Allow

My geek-dom started at a young age with an (un)healthy fascination with Star Wars. That was the beginning of the end. In middle school, I was a member of the group of kids that actually played AD&D in the library during lunch. Current obsessions include Star Wars (still), Game of Thrones, John Williams and politics. I'm local to South Orange County: I grew up in San Clemente and now live in San Juan Capistrano with my wife (Erin) and son (Gavin).

How the time has flown
Weapon Z

You’ll have to excuse the tone of this blog.  Most of the time, I try to keep it light and humorous, but this time around, I’m feeling a little sentimental.  Time sure does fly.  I can hardly even believe it myself.  It has been one year since the first time I’ve taken the microphone over on Saturday nights at Krazy Karls.  One year.  With me behind the mic every single week.  51 weeks with me seems like punishment.  (Ok, so we missed a week back in February when we were canceled because of Geek Bowl.) Geeks Who Drink, and more importantly, everyone at Krazy Karls, staff and patrons alike have become like family to me.

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

Hey there, quizzers!What a great night! It was a little on the muggy side but we had a great time anyway.We started with eight questions on Big Cities, and while Austin didn't QUITE make the cut, Houston, San Antonio, and even Dallas showed up in the round.Then we had a music round that was all songs that are about things happening over and over again. Like Here I Go Again, and Deja Vu! Easy Peasy.For Round 3, we had a 50/50 round on actors who are in Sharknado 4. Some of those answer may have surprised you!Then in Round 4, I was all, "Gluten Tag!" Because the round was about wheat, playground games, and German phrases. It turns out

Follow Ted Cruz’s Advice: Vote Your Conscious

Hey there quizzers! We had another great Saturday night (alright) at Darcy’s. We learned some fun things, we listened to some great tunes, but most importantly, we made fun of Republicans. Coming off of the RNC in Cleveland, we had some fancy team names that reflected on the week we’ve had. We had a strong showing from Growing Up a Poor Black Woman - By Melania Trump and contemplated Ted Cruz’s advice to Vote Your Conscious. I can only hope that next week, the DNC in Philadelphia will inspire some equally creative team names. But

Pop-punk Roots Vol 2: Nostalgia Albums
DJ ROB ROB

Last week, I talked about Blink-182's new album California, and how I had originally planned to talk about a similar topic: nostalgia music that I listened to in my youth that still sticks with me today. Well now, that blog has come. Listening to Blink has caused me to go down quite a rabbit hole of amazing music. To be honest, I listen to a lot of this stuff to this day, which I can go into more detail with each album. My taste in music has changed dramatically, but here's a few albums that I listen to probably once a month, sometimes even more. Disclaimer: don't judge me. I was a bit of a punk emo

Stick It In Cape Canaveral Again
Geoff (like Chaucer)

I had a long, dull week this time around.  All of the computers worked, and the quizzes were by the book.  Here is your quiz recap: Seven teams stepped up tonight to test their brains against my questions.  The questions splayed themselves like target sheets on a firing range - the eight largest American cities, Sharknado 4, fictional hippies, playground games, writers in wars, and Bob's Burgers all received at least one bull's eye each. Tonight's highest score belonged to Ebony & Ivory; they scored 80 points.  There was a tie between Smart Fuckers and Team Excelsior (77 points each) at the end of the

GEEKS.  I enjoy role-playing games, listening to music, and video games.  Reddit is my bread and butter.  I know a lot about a lot of things.

WHO.  Military veteran, computer expert.  Young at heart, sarcastic to a fault, and funny.  I hope.

DRINK.  I don't drink often, but when I do, it's usually a beer.  I drink shots on special occasions only.  I am known to sing karaoke at times.

Making America Drunk Again!
Quizmistrix Lalenya

Remember the good ol' days, when one could have a beer or two at lunch?  When Happy Hour meant getting really happy right after work?  I miss those days... Nevertheless, we hang out at a brewery, and that means consumption of beer is not only ok, but expected!  Yeah beer! We had eight awesome teams, but the super power team formed by Veronica, Matthew, Patrick and Gus was just too powerful for all the competition.  Nice job, Are We Best Friends Now?  Pebble & Friends also had a fine showing for 2nd. Unfortunately, we did not have a tie breaker round, so I did not get to bust out my new exciting toy that

JamieAnderson

Jake’s on a Thursday night in summer when the patio is open is pretty much the perfect place to be. Delicious food, really fun crowd, excellent atmosphere, and clear evidence as the night went on and the scores got noticeably worse that everyone was doing a lot more “drinking” than “geeking”. The funny answers degenerated from actual funny answers to “i dunno something funny”. The scrum for free beer got a lot more scrum-like. Going on in the ubiquitous panopticon of televisions that form the background of all our sports bars was, first, a Rockies game, and second, Donald

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream.

$hillz and Thrills
Cynthia

It was a quiet evening at Long Island City's Beer Closet this week, but fun nonetheless! Tonight's questions were for a real in-the-nknow New Yorker. With just three teams, everyone stayed neck and neck (and neck) throughout the trivia. In the end, it was Corporate $hillz that took the prize, followed by the Cat Ladies of Eastwick and The Lit Click, whose name had nothing to do with being college English majors, unfortunately. Great teams, great service, and great neighborhood! Hopefully, we'll all go check out that unauthorized prequel to Jane Eyre. I already forgot the title, but that's enough for us to Google.

It Started Down Low, Then Started to Grow
Justin Mazouat

So Denver is pretty humid huh? I felt it, and ya'll felt it, but we still had six teams come out for some M Uptown quiz night yesterday! It was one of the more tough quizzes recently, but the scores were tight right up until the end. Round two was one of the more challenging music rounds recently, even with the fact that so many answers repeated! Round eight was so tough, this quiz was one of the few that might warrant jokering a non-round five (that's an overstatement, always joker a sixteen point round.) I'll see everyone next week! Def getting used to using powerpoint and I look forward to seeing everyone once a week! Justin

Another awesome Thursday on the books! Thanks to the wonderful Baillie for covering for me while I was at a bachelorette party in Vegas last weekend. I successfully avoided casinos, went to a country bar and rode a mechanical bull, and spent a day on a large boat on Lake Mojave soaking in the sun and the drinks in 115 degree weather.   It was hot, dry, and had fantastic company... But I loved getting back to quiz to see all your lovely faces!   We had four teams join us for yet another night of quizzery as we discussed a slew of topics to challenge, compete, and basically have your asses handed to you from a visiting team from Georgia.

As many, if not all of you know: I’m from Chicago I’m getting married soon So I was in Chicago for a bridal shower that my mom and sister decided to throw me (and I literally had no input except for the fact that there were mimosas available to me), when I got a sad call and had to stay in Chicago for longer than originally planned. Everything is fine, and in the end I’m glad that I was able to be there for my (soon-to-be-legal) family. However, I was in Chicago for longer than I have been since I moved out here years ago. It was humid. It was gross. I did not pack enough clothes, and I may have tricked my sister and
