The More You Know?
Logan

Last night i mentioned that all of the "facts" presented in the quiz are not true. They are all made up. We make them all up. None of it is true. So, throughout this blog post, I will present some alternate "facts" that were set on the side for the ones we presented as truths last night.  "In 2009, Microsoft decided to print all of the code that makes their operating system, Windows. When printed out, the code can be contained in a 1/2 inch binder." LAst night's quiz was a doozy. It wasn't really, but I just wanted to say the word "doozy". "When submitting their blogs, quizmasters for Geeks Who Drink, must audibly dictate their posts to prove

No there wasn’t a dance, but I was chaperoned. Given my penchant for puns and alteration, the title seemed apropos … just like a question of Robspierre we had in round one. For those of you not with us last night, and were expecting to hear from Scotty, he kindly allowed me to finish my training at 4 Noses last night, while serving as my chaperone; ready to step in if my humor wasn’t up for the task. With great training also comes great blogging responsibility, so I’m at the keyboard today. 11 Teams played through our 8 round quiz, all gallantly competing and most satiating my love of puns. In fact, our first place team, When I think about Scotty

All Hail the Return of the Gift Card
Nathalie

If you have been to my quiz even once you will probably know two things about me.  The first is that I LOVE MUSICALS.  And music from musicals; they are awesome.  The second is that I am not a SPORTSBALL type person.  I tolerate it in some forms (like LSU Football, or Soccer), but it just is not my wheelhouse. Fun story: I worked in my neighborhood golf-course country club for 3 summers.  THREE!  And never once in that time did a hit a golf ball.  Employees could golf for free on Mondays, but nope, I am not that type of person.  Second I start working for an engineering company, I get dragged to Top Golf.  We had a marketing event at Top

Skiing in July!
Lance Stanford

I don't think I've mentioned it before but The Library has a really cool shot called a ski shot. Four shots are placed on a ski and four people lift it up and take all the shots at the same time! It's a lot of fun and we did one last night. We who have no name were kind enough to invite me to be their fourth person. It was a lot of fun and hopefully the first of many.

Kids Will Read Any Old Crap
Please don't call me Matt. I hate that.

Prior to last night’s Quiz, I had no concept of what a Flat Stanley is, nor had I ever even heard of his existence. I looked him up on the old interwebs and now I know all about him: his name is Stanley, and he is flat. That’s about it. Apparently the bar for children's books has been set pretty low or children's authors are running out of ideas because, sorry, but that is pretty lame. I did learn that he has been around since the 1960’s, so I am realizing that this lack of ideas is nothing new. I did have one team that was very excited when I said what the round was called, and then very sad when I said it had nothing to do with him, so we

In a perfect world he would Quiz Monday-Friday and spend the weekend building stupid old cars, but in this imperfect world he only gets to Quiz once a week and he doesn't even have a driver's license. He is working on the formula for making that perfect world happen, but until then you'll just have to settle for that one night a week.

When no otherwise preoccupied with work or shit like that you can find him cursing at the Rockies game on the vintage radio in his garage while he pretends to be productive with a bike or some such, or just walking around.

If you want to give him a gift his favorite things in the world are anything vintage, baseball-related, or Italian. He also accepts cash.

Flat Stanley Vs Sarah Palin: Who Went Rogue-r?
The Jewish Viking

It was another fantastic night of quiz at O'Niell's last night with newest Quizmaster, Rebecca, at my side to provide you with a fantastic quiz. Let's dive in: We started with a little round on the thing that happened the last week of July throughout ALL OF HISTORY (as long as we define history as far back as 1794). If you've ever had Will Smith's Miami stuck in your head, you could blame William "Fresh Prince" Smith, but you could ALSO blame Julia Tuttle for co-founding the city. 8-bit hits was our music round. I'm not sure if 8-Bit Peter Gabriel trumps regular Peter Gabriel, but I honestly was not able to discern nintendo-ized Turn Down For What from the real song.

What REALLY Happened...
Paddycake

So I bet you're all wondering where Katie was last night. I thought about donning a light pink wig just to see if anyone would notice a difference... but I figured that would be pointless. I know I said she was at a wedding... that is what she asked me to tell you... but here is what really happened... So the wedding thing is actually true. She is going to a wedding this week... yesterday afternoon she was touching up her color, and the chemicals ended up burning her scalp, and caused all her hair to fall out. She spent all night searching wig shops to find a wig that looked exactly like her hair did before the incident, and finally found one late last night at around 11. She

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

It's the End of July as We Know It, and I Feel Fine.
ErictheWellRead

It's the end of July. Basically one month until the College gets back into the swing of things. It was a free food sort of week for me as we interviewed two candidates, which means free dinner two nights of the week. Good stuff. Speaking of free dinner, we gave away some gift cards last night at Brew Pub & Kitchen which allowed two of the fifteen teams who showed up to potentially get their own free food...although it's more likely beer, don't you think? We did have quite the tourism crowd in last night, which really throws some chaos into the famous second-to-last-must-be-present-to-win prize, as the fluctuating teams, some coming late, some leaving early (perish the

The one with the ill thought out beach ball
Miss LaLa

It was a mighty mighty crowd last night at pub quiz! The drinks were flowing and the drunks were riotous, but mostly in a good way. It’s nice to be nice after all.  It was a boisterous crowd and in the end, lots of fun! It’s a nice contrast to the outdoor portion of Sacramento. It’s been downright miserable the last several days. Not that we are strangers to weeks of 100+ degree weather. Anyone who lives in Sacramento for any amount of time will tell you that there is always at least one week a year when temperatures soar well above 100 for over a week. (109 yesterday in fact)   We

8-bit sing along night
David

Well hello there Pinthouse friends! What a good night of quiz last night. We really packed it in to the Pinthouse with 32 teams in attendance last night rocking out the knowledge. The table up front had a group of kids on their team (which is always makes me nervous) actually helping answer all sorts of questions, very impressive. They even were singing a long with the 8-bit audio round. We kicked off the quiz with It came from the last week of July, a round on events that happened on that last week of July.

Niceties Between Teams Dispensed With! Nice - Ties Between Teams Dispensed With!
Jimmy Williams

It was kind of a frantic quiz tonight. We had possibly the largest quiz ever at T&T with 11 hungry teams filling Tokens & Tankards. A fluke tech problem prevented me from presenting the video round and my wondrous slide deck, and of course it immediately went away on its own right after quiz. I think I preferred the audio round this week anyway. Lots of the regulars, Elite 4, Quiz in My Pants, and Fart Knockers, were in attendance. Fart Knockerz even brought friends who formed a second team and seemed to immediately turn traitor by calling themselves Shart Knockerz. Or maybe it was an homage… a disgusting,

Jay O ... JA - A - A - O!

Tonight’s game featured a good bit about getting high, as in altitude.  I was out of town last week and the next two weeks I will be out in Seattle where it is legal to get all the altitude I want! I asked for team names concerning travel or vacations.  Mount Jay got me in the right places to win a box of candy.  Everyone was in a great mood and was pretty much on time tonight.  I was trying to tighten up my game tonight because when I get back there will be a show on after mine. A Lip Sync Battle for like 6 weeks.  I played a lot of Lips Sync videos in preparation for that.  I may play more of those; they went over well!  The quiz itself

If you missed last nites game you missed a few pretty neat new things, including:    1) Our fancy ass new answer packets 2) The brand new ELECTRIC PENCIL SHARPENER that I bought from the Office Max closing sale 3) Team Affirmative Action's ridiculous new banner that they have hanging up at their table.   Oh, and speaking of TAA, they won! In second place, it was our friends Rural Jurors! Oh, and there was only one point between our top three teams, so you know it was a total nail-biter.   And yeah, it was a pretty hard game.

The Iron Triangle is still ripe for quiz opportunity here in downtown Los Angeles. The opportunity to drink craft beer, the opportunity to have artisan pizza delivered directly to your picnic table seat around the bar, and most importantly the opportunity to play some great quiz with the best host in shouting distance. Yes we had another great time last night deciphering exactly where The Aps are, remembering that the million man march was not all the way back in the age of the flower children, and of course trying not to picture how fifteen tons of human feces end up on mount Everest every year.   The only thing more amusing was the fist pumping taking place when one

Hey, Geeks Who Drink at Home Run Inn is rad and good!   Honestly, being there hosting quiz makes me feel great. I really missed it last week, but I was busy at my other job, listening to Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole sing at each other angrily and/or wistfully. It was nice. But I missed you guys. I really did. Akanksha says you were nice to her, so thanks for that. I hope she gave you my message that we'll be a family again when the Angels win the pennant. I meant that.   Akanksha's
