Boy, time really flies when you're reading… the Bible? Ew.
Neil The Real Deal

I don't know if you heard, but after a few months of a season I like to call "Springish Summer", full fledged "Classic Hot Ass Chicago Summer" has finally hit our fair city. So what better time to spend your evening indoors at a cool bar playing Geeks Who Drink?   It was my first full night on my own at the Holiday Club and it was a bit spooky. After a few unexplained audio glitches before the night (and spread out thinly during the night), our bartender Greg explained that the bar is, in fact, haunted. So there's that.   We had eleven living teams tonight! Proving the theory that Monty Python fans tend to be the most intelligent people in the room,

I Am [Emotion]!
Philopher

Every other day there is a new news story to be outraged about. Another person dying at the hands of the police, a shooting, a politician, Bill Cosby, Hulk Hogan, Cecil the Lion, it's almost too much to keep straight. I've decided to streamline my social media posts using the handy macro below. You can't turn on the TV or browse online without seeing someone talking about [event]. It is pretty [emotion] what happened, but what really gets me is that some people are actually [reaction] towards [principle player]! I think most people will agree with me that what they did was [adjective], but all you have to do is read the comments section

Hey, I'm Phil. Maybe you recognize me from some of the improv comedy shows you've seen in the area. Or maybe you recognize me as Sheik Admir al-Akbar from GOUGE pro wrestling. There's also the chance you recognize me from any number of bars or concerts.

Or maybe, just maybe, you recognize me from your dreams.

3-Ways are the Best Kind of Tie
theshrew

It was awfully nice to get to visit a pub named after the great detective of British lore. I was kinda tickled by it, actually. Perhaps that makes me a nerd rather than a geek, but so be it. I was kinda tickled by the warm welcome, also. I mean, reading back through the blog, y'all name your teams after your regular host, and suchlike, so I would have been totally understanding if you'd booed, got up and left, written nasty notes on my facebook, and so forth. I appreciate your restraint in these matters (especially on facebook, I mean, my grandmother might read that...you know, if she got an account and figured out

Katherine (also responds to Kat) has been a geek who drinks since before she knew it was a thing to be. You'll find her subbing and quiz-master-ing 'round the port of Denver...other interests include every outdoor sport going, and community theatre. If you've played both Kate and Petruchio, you can't help having a nickname like theshrew. On happier notes, her horse Sparky (pictured) is finally with her in CO, which makes her a much happier and more easygoing quizmistress. Lucky you.

  Well, well, Weldworks. It's always great to see you, and it's kind of like my approved mistress. Nobody judges me when I am seen with you and I am allowed to come and go as I please. I'm even given permission to be with you when your main lover is away. It really is the best of both worlds.   There was a lot of references to Queens, Queen and and Transgender Queens in tonights quiz. Maybe they should make that a round.   Also, what the hell is wrong with this country?? Bill O'Reilly is one of the countries most trusted news personalities?

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

It was Tuesday, a beautiful sunny day and time for another Geeks Who Drink pub quiz.  We had our two winning teams back to compete for first place again The Zachs and ATM Amber Alert (formerly the Urbanites).  I was sure that it would come down to those 2 teams again but we had the dark horse Mystery Machine come in and take second place.  The quiz was alot of fun and I was sad that I couldn't give points as episodes 4,, and 6 are not books in the original King James Bible.  The teams were coming across pretty evenly matched and we had a lot of ties during every standings.  We even

Quiz is a Flat Circle
Dr. Rex N.F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

For the past two months, I’ve blogged in pretty much the standard Geeks Who Drink format-technically, there is no format as much as there are suggestions for what and what not to include-of highlighting some of the highlights of the quiz, funniest team names, funniest wrong answers, and the main, sometimes heated competition during the quiz. It’s been a while since I’ve been weird and self-indulgent on the blog. First a bit about the quiz:    Last night’s quiz was a bit like the end of “True Detective” season two, episode two, where a person in a bird mask shot Ray Velcoro in the chest with a 12 gauge.

I Am Sam
Bill Murray

So last week in my blog I called some guy Matt while is name was actually Sam. Now Sam has been one of my favorite members on the reigning champion team My Friends Hate Me for awhile now. He always comes up to me every quiz with friendly banter and Einstein like anecdotes. HE EVEN READS THE BLOG…Nobody reads the blog, but Sam does. All this time, I was inconsiderate enough to never get his name right. I’m an asshole, a big gaping asshole. Speaking of which, never type the phrase “gaping asshole” into GOOGLE, you will be very unhappy or maybe very happy.  Either way,

What a night! I’ve never felt like I needed to blog as much as after tonight’s quiz. First of all, let’s talk about that guy at the bar who shouted out an answer. I know that clueless, non-geek bar patrons often shout out answers at bars across the country but it’s pretty rare for us to get one. There was that one guy once who yelled out “SUPERMAN!” as he walked into the bathroom and everyone waited for him to finish peeing so they could yell at him. Other than that I don’t remember it happening much. We were having a pretty good audio round vis-a-vis people being respectfully quiet, too. This guy was great because he knew the answer to

College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

When you come out to the Stone Church for quiz night, chat me up!

Tale of the Tape
The Duke of Allston

Would Allen Funt have created "Candid Camera" in 2015?  Would the show be a novelty at all?  Is the idea of a gotcha moment in which the viewer is endeared to the subject dead?  It seems today that whenever we record somebody, whether with audio or video or both, we always see or hear them doing something embarrassing.  We're laughing at the subject, not with the subject.     I recall Jim Rome speaking recently on this topic.  Apparently, there's a phenomenon of dads recording their kids and telling them falsely that a favorite athlete of theirs has been traded from their favorite team.  The kid inevitably starts bawling before

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

There never was a better pair than the queen of reality TV and the vessel through which the Lord communicates to his believers. Unfortunately, neither of them made Twitter's top 10 most followed. This was one of the sad truths learned by all the teams at The Bronx Beer Hall this evening. That, and no one knows their state capitals. The Cougar Coontz were poised to take this one, but Quiz on my face, not in my eye swept in with a joker for the kill.

The Stillness of the Night Is the Intimacy of Grace and Her Selfish Twin, Oh Sweet Release
AdrianTrevino

You wake up in the morning and realize its time for you to actually wake up, get dressed, and rush out of the house in order to make it on time to work. You're at a stoplight and you ponder if the route you're taking is the most efficient and fastest route to work possible, but you're in the turning lane and the light gives you a protected left and you go. You make it to work, one minute early, and clock in. And then you wonder whether or not you're actually awake, and then you become aware that you're operating at minimum capacity. A coffee and a redbull later, you still feel like you're asleep and time keeps dragging and dragging and dragging... OI!

And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

 

Well.

Mookie Betts Can't Hold Jay Buhner's Jock Strap
Cap'n Brendan

Full disclaimer: Jay Buhner was my favorite baseball player growing up. His talent on the field combined with his personality off of it made it an easy choice. I was proud to sit in the Bone Yard, buzz my head every year for Buhner Buzz Cut Night and root, root, root for #19. He was the class clown and set the curve at the same time. Nearly 20 years later I still wear his jersey with pride (when I can fit my fat ass into it). All that said, one of the most memorable Buhner moments was on June 29, 1997 – nearly 18 years to the day – when he robbed Scott Hatteberg of a home run, falling into the Fenway Park bullpen in the process. Tonight, in a moment that was oh so baseball,

Becky Wants to Date my Dad...
Alison C

Quiz gets complicated when family is involved. I had two relatives come visit tonight. Honestly, it was the highlight of my evening. A cousin from my mom's side and a cousin from my dad's side co-existed and competed against each other at the same high top table, which naturally led to Becky trying to set me up with my teenage cousin. And when that didn't work, she asked if he had any uncles who were single...for herself. Since my father is in a loving and caring relationship, I quickly shot that down and walked away, giving her the worlds strangest look ever received by any living creature. In addition to my copious family members, we had a bit of royalty in the crowd

  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!
