Nice Prize
Professor Truman

After a week of selling hammocks at an out of state art festival, Professor Truman is back!  The thrift stores were good on the trip too.  One of the better finds was this week’s 3rd place prize.  A 1000 piece puzzle of the Periodic Table.  Ohhhhhh, science-y.  Of course the 3rd place prize is going to go hand in hand with the unofficial theme... ELEMENTS.  Very nice.  Now to the fun facts. 1.  Is it the Brandcameo Awards season already?  I still have to find my BCA shaped cookie cutter and get my ballots made up for the big annual party.  2.  I know 0% French.  Good thing the quiz had the pronunciation

Boy Trouble
CarlyLewandowski

Fun Quiz Times at Tapcade last night! A big group of quizzers, a pretty challenging quiz and of course BEER AND TACOS. And hey, looks like somebody has been reading my blog because we had a team called I'm Here for the Tacos (hey, me too!) and they even ended up taking the second place prize. They were only beaten by Stew's Squad, a team of rule-abiders who, when their 7th friend showed up mid-way through quiz, made him sit at the bar until they finished quizzing!   Rule-abiders, rule-breakers--quiz brings us all together. Or tears us apart. I don't know. But hey, if you're reading this, let me reiterate: we LOOOOOVE teams! We love teams

Sadie: Porch-Warrior
QM Kwi

                So you all need an update on Roof-Cat. Her name is Sadie, by the way. So Sadie has dropped the moniker of Roof-Cat and is now Porch-Cat. She hangs out there all day gettin’ her tan on and confusing the pedestrians as to why there is a cat just hanging out on a porch. We obviously feed her, give her ice water, visit her, and sometimes wrap an ice-packet in a blanket so she can cool off.                 Overall, Sadie’s doing just fine.

No, We Won't Make It Easier
Sarah B.

Wow. I thought the Round 8 from a couple weeks ago was rough, but last night we set a new low average score and NO teams reaching double digits in our final round. Which is great, because we feed off the tears of quizzers, MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Mine is an evil laugh. Reigning champions Soccer Hooligans managed to squeak out the win over  Jizz Kids, who vaulted back into the top 2 after falling short for a long stretch. Things we learned this week: Everybody has a problem with Bulgaria (except for the Hooligans, who had a Bulgarian on their team) Most people don’t know any Adam Sandler movies after The Wedding

All Good Things Must Come To An End @ PATEROS CREEK!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Back in December of 2012, a new brewery opening in Fort Collins and shortly thereafter, they picked up Geeks Who Drink. Now, 130 quizzes later, here we are. I’m sad to say the final quiz at Pateros has run its course, but sadly, I think we just went on a little too long. You diehards who came out every week made it what it was, but we needed fresh blood… blood which needed to have its ABV increased an awful lot, because breweries need to sell beer. You listened to my rants about Rush and how much I hate Quidditch, I fumbled over Ecclesiastes, I had my own beer brewed for me, celebrated my 500th quiz here (this one marked 629), and we had lots and lots of great

How Special these Olympics truly are…..
shadude (the long winded Persian)

Thank you again to Hardwuar for covering for me for the third time in five weeks. I know my return to quiz was brief….and for that I apologize. Three days after returning from my three week holiday in Scotland, I had to go to Denver for work. Of course while I was there I did what I normally can't do here in LA - PLAY QUIZ….well, play and WIN!!!! And probably the most ridiculous non-work thing I did while in Denver was see Boy George and Culture Club (yes, THAT Boy George and THAT Culture Club). It was just too much fun (and such a nice change of pace to not be the oldest person at a concert).But the real story here is my what my life has been like literally

a musical theatre geek -more than an straight man rightfully should be

It’s amazing the way I can fumble through quiz, make fun of everyone, and yet you all seem to miss me when I’m gone, you bunch of masochists.  Speaking of being a masochist, I volunteered to drive through rush-hour traffic to sub a quiz in Wilsonville this week.  You can bet I made them miss their regular quizmaster.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  What a coincidence, Tan Lines and Toddler Butts is the name of my upcoming album.   Round Two.  No Doubt's Don't Speak is a jam, the

Turd Is The No. 1 Word For No. 2
Chris

Maybe I'm just a big dumb slow child of a man, but nothin brings me more joy than calling Thursday "Turdsday". It's not some elaborate gag. Monday's are trash, but there's no real goofy spin on those other than a mildly mentally affected feline takin the piss out of them on coffee cups sitting in the dish communal dish drainer at work. Thursday's are pretty great actually, since they're so close to Friday's which we all know are the best of all the days most folks gotta slog through some dumb job or other, pumpin' for the man. So given all of that, I don't know why Turdsday brings me such great joy. Oh! Wait! I do! It's the TURD! Lately I guess I've been partial to "crap" as my go to verb

Well, hello there, quizzers! Sorry for missing last week, I got food poisoning, which was so not fun at all. But I knew you would be just fine with Doug, and Amanda had fun filling in as scorekeeper. So, in the end, it was okay. This week Doug was back as our rockin’ scorekeeper. Thanks, Doug- and I did go read your blog! (You are much more thorough than I am!) The bar was packed! The pinball machine was once again turned into a table. This time by my Husband (aka Deadly Deadly Honeydew- which goes to show you that I really don’t tolerate cheating- I love him, but on his own he never cracks the top 10). Sam, Katie,

Because I have Integrity
Chris

Turns out it's been another crazy week at work, so sorry everyone for the late blog post here. This is honestly the first minute I've had to sit down and write this in days. Never the less the quiz last week was right on time and a bunch of fun. We learned some new things about the world and about each other. I for instance learned that despite how funny it might have been, I have too much integrity to fudge the quiz scores and change around who won or lost. I'm talking of course about team Please Not 3rd Again who actually got second place this week. But I was really tempted to drop them down 2 points into 3rd place, just for the laughs.  They

Some people are pot of coffee by day bottle of wine by night type of people, times that by 3 and you've got me. Hey I'm Chris, part time Quiz Master who should never have been trusted with a microphone. 

In college I started my own pub quiz for college students because there was nothing else for them to do on a Tuesday night. 5 Years later I'm happy to return to hosting.

I live out in Acton, MA now with a silly dog named Bagel, and an asshole of a parrot named Jax. Just kidding, Jax is cool, he has the kind of integrity that the mere improbable lacks.  

I can never seem to get the hang of Thursdays. In my free time I read a lot, ride motorcycles, go running, and plot ways to become batman. I'm also big into board games and card games. 

Someday I hope that humanity will invent a printer that doesn't beg to be dragged out to an empty field and beaten to bits. We can only dream.

I’m learning so much about the world of online dating.  Swiping right on literally every person you come across will lead to some interesting and mildly erotic conversations. People will send you anything at the drop of a hat.  Also, the number of ‘yo, you horny’ conversations is priceless. There’s a guy named Chris, who looks like a pizza attacked his chest and won. Some guy named Keith called me sexy even though my only picture on here is of freaking Link from the Legend of Zelda.

THANK YOU FOR SIGNING UP FOR TOM HANKS FACTS

FACT: Tom Hanks has hosted Saturday Night Live at least 8 times. Good for him, that means that he's been a part of SO MUCH mediocre sketch comedy that he probably has those "work dreams" about it.

Well, hi there! Troy here - your new quizmaster for the new quiz over at 75th Street Brewery. It's a pleasure to be here - I moved back not too long ago from Seattle and am still getting settled in. Which is why teams this week got some pretty sweet prizes. Usually, we give out bonus beers and whatnot, but for the debut quiz, I couldn't resist giving out some stuff that I didn't feel like organizing in my house - mostly CD's. One was endorsed by Siegfried and Roy, another was Lilith Fair... and another was from Fabio. This was a gag gift from a pirate Christmas party, featuring the following spoken-word tracks (besides actual songs): About Romance On Inner

I Cried Over That Lion, I Also Hate Dentists
She Wolf

So judging from all of the team names you guys have heard the news too. A dentist (which we all know are the agents of Satan on earth) lured a very pretty and very much-loved research lion off of his protected sanctuary and killed him. The dentist a.k.a. Satan spawn sent a letter out to all his patients basically saying “My bad, sorry not sorry”. I want to make this VERY clear he is not a 13 year old girl that totally ripped off your haircut and tried to steal your boyfriend, he is a grown man that beheaded and skinned a lion.  A lion that was living on a sanctuary and wearing a GPS collar. I’ve also been going to a fellow Satan spawn recently. I don’t want to
