Where'd the Sun go?
Chandni

UPDATE! Quiz has changed times! Tonight was our first night of playing quiz from 9-11, and man oh man did it bring out the night owls in y'all. Someone maybe me maybe not me might have had to have a couple extra drinks to stay perky and fun, but I hope y'all are enjoying the new time and the new benefits it brings. Those benefits mostly being me caring less about what comes out of my mouth later in the evening.  Isn't it fun when your two worlds suddenly collide and you have no idea it's going to happen? Well that happened tonight! Funny story: on my third week at my big girl job, a co-worker of mine made a simple mistake and wrote his last name attached to my first name on a

Adulting Means PJs
RobotNarwhal

Apologies for my absence last week.  I wish I could say that I was doing something daring and romantic, like fighting rogue bears or riding on a reindeer-drawn sled through the Alps or something.  In reality, I was vomiting.  Sadly, I vomited consistently for two days, and I didn’t eat solid food for four.  I didn’t wish this plague upon any of you, so of course Derek stepped in last minute, and I thank him profusely.  Ever since then, I’ve been craving macaroni and cheese.  But next time, I’ll just tell you guys I was sledding in the Alps.   On the plus side, I got to lounge around with my dogs in my PJs for a few

This quiz is for babies
MikeSchramm

It was a wild night at the Surfside Tap Room quiz, because we had a whole bunch of people playing (nine teams!), we were up in the top level of the bar (our new home -- it's got windows!), and not only did we have a few doggo guests, but we had an honest to goodness baby! He slept through most of the questions, but we were still happy to have him! During the quiz, it was mostly business as usual -- there was a pretty tough round 2, and there some rough questions late in the game as well. We also had a ton of ties throughout the night -- the round 6 standings had three different two way ties somehow. In the end, it came down to some smart joker use in the 8th round, and we had two teams

Guys I Am Dogsitting The Cutest Dog
Mike Cabellon

What does that have to do with the quiz? Nothing! But OH MAN you need to see this dog. I prefer not to publicly share photos of dogs that are not my own dog (which is to say, all dogs), but trust me, if you saw this dog, you'd be like, DAMN THAT'S A CUTE-ASS DOG.   Anyway, the quiz! The quiz the quiz the quiz. First of all, I'd be remiss not to mention right off the bat that tonight featured one of my favorite/least favorite team names of all time, because it both feeds into my ego and mocks my very bland patterns of speech: Now It's Time For A Quick Scoring Break. Grab A Drink, Grab A Smoke, Take Advantage Of The Wheelhouse's Menu. Indeed, truer

For those of you keeping score at home, this was the 4th night in a row hosting quiz for me. This happens to be a new record for me; I'm not even sure I've done 3 in a row before.

My Quizmaster style can best be described as a mix between an announcer at an NBA basketball game and Brad Neely's Dear Reader: Wizarding People.  Jordan's quizzlings has the propensity for random bouts of karaoke during shitty 90's songs e.g. Ashlee Simpson, and Smashmouth.  I am notorious for leading aforementioned sing alongs.

Following Kentucky Basketball is my full time job, The Avett Brothers are constantly playing in my head, and Swedish Fish, Fried Okra, and Chocolate Milk are the true keys to my heart.

I also have an inexplicable habit of breaking out in dance every time old school BlackEyedPeas songs come on.

Haute or Not?

Hello again, my darlings! We had some beautiful weather out on the patio this evening, much to the contrast of what we have had the past few days. I was very happy to not only have a brand new solo quiz bunny, but he was brand new to this area as well so I hope he decides to join us every week, and make some new friends! Ya know, even if I did mispronounce his team name. Well, enough of the hub-bub, let's get to the quiz! Well, we got off to a “rocky” start. No literally. A whole round on geology, because I know that's JUST what you all do in your spare time, study rocks. And no, Ross was not a geologist. He was a paleontologist. There is a difference. The audio

The Old Nemesis
Tas

Many years ago, I had my first taste of the pub quiz game. My friends and I would gather weekly at Legends in Ames on Thursday nights, ready to throw down with other teams. But we had many groups of regulars we'd see week in and week out. And while we won a good 90% of the time, we were still on pretty friendly terms with the competition. We weren't the hardest drinkers, so we'd stack up prizes and buy rounds for the room pretty regularly. The good times we had there cemented me as a sucker for pub quizzes, an addiction you can clearly tell I haven't kicked yet. But a couple of a former rival team's members popped back up last night. They came into my quiz and straight up dominated the

A New High Score!
StephanieLange

Bouncing back from a low holiday-related turnout last week, tonight was the highest turnout EVER for quiz at Parry's with a round dozen. I guess I must be doing something right. Almost all the teams stuck it out to the end, too, despite the difficulty level of round 6 and 7. We had anecdotes about David Hasselhoff-shaped lollipops in Germany and remembered that Madonna did a cover of American Pie. And, of course, no one could spell Lech Walesa (or the correct Vaclav Havel) or even come up with synecdoche. James Madison reminds us all that size doesn't always matter, being both one of the shortest men ever elected president and, to date, the only sitting president to ever lead

You, You Make'a My Dreams Come True (Ooh-ooh, ooh ooh-ooh ooh)
Lady Thunderfunk

Ni Hao, Hong Kong! Which is a butchered version of the classic Mandarin greeting -- fitting, since we were in the upstairs bar of Hong Kong and conducted the quiz entirely in English. It's been a while since I've been around, but it was certainly nice to be back. Maybe you missed Ryan and the "Ryan mispronounces things" drinking game; but tonight had very few foreign words, so hopefully you got a kick out of the question/round number match drinking game. It's only 8 sips if you play all the way through, so a moderate drinker can still get home alright at the end of the game. Or the hardcore shot-taker with a safe ride home at the end of the night can feel like they're spacing

The Clown Babies Win It All
Amanda

Tonight was fun as there were so many teams fighting for first place.  But really, it came down to the main three.  CDL held down the third place position but they do get some brownie points for coming all the way from California just to play GWD.  Wait... maybe there was another reason... Oh well.  First place was taken by Clown Babies with an eleven point lead from Former National Security Advisors.  It was a fun night and as I left the rain had turned to snow so enjoy the warm weather next time it comes around.  Don't just sit inside watching netflix and doing puzzles

Geek Bowl 11 is coming up here in like a week and a half! Last year I was able to volunteer, but I snuck in at the last minute and so I wasn’t privy to all of the pre setup emails. I just want to say that it definitely sounds like it’s going to be a good time in Seattle. So…OMG….can we talk for a minute about how we had 14 TEAMS???? 1 more team would have broke my record. I mean, I’m not complaining about 14 TEAMS, but you guys don’t have like….one more group of friends you can bring? Anyway. Pray for Sweden came in first tonight! I’ve been rooting for them for a while since they are usually underdogs in the group…but

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.

Well it was a busy Tuesday for Tubby Hook Tavern! We had 19 teams tonight and only 2 teams dropped by the end. Also our regulars got their groove back and did really well.  The song clip round went swimmingly tonight. We have a few that got all of them right and used their joker! They became impossible to beat. Round 3 was fun and everyone though Katie Ledecky had more medals than Michael Phelps. And who knew that bands had concerts in Antarctica at all? The R3 bonus question was intense because everyone shouted out the answer even before I finished reading the question! Audio clips were tough but they were fun to listen to.

Bring in the Closer
Jesse Grabman

The Late Show, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, etc. All of these shows wouldn’t be anything without their opening performer. An opener warms up the crowd – gets them into a state of mirth and ebullience before the primetime host comes on. Without the opener there are no laughs. Without Jay Leno, there are now more laughs. Audrey did a fantastic job as the opener tonight. The questions rang out at a steady clip. There was banter. She handled the random shouts of answers with the aplomb of an elder stateswoman. I’ve never seen a finer performance of quizmastering a round on ‘90s TV shows. With that being said… bring on the closer.
