IT MY BIRTHDAY!
Lisa Pizza

And last night we totally partied like it was my birthday! And I am so so so grateful for all the wonderful quizzers and friends who showed up and made last night magical! Despite the fact that I fucked up words almost immediately ("Lake pohn-CHAR-train???"), the quiz itself was pretty siiiick. Though, disappointingly, none of the questions in the It Came From The Last Week of August round were about me. In the end, there Corn In The Yard took home first place! And after a three way tie, Critical Failures took second, and Trash Pandas third!  Yes! Because last night was so huge, and also my birthday,

Learning about quizzers' sexual preferences one wrong answer at a time
Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

Quizzes like the one we had this evening are a different kind of enjoyable.  After scorekeeping for the Harry Potter quiz on Saturday to a full house, and after subbing for another QM at another venue on Sunday (<gasp> how vague!) with lots of sportsballing fans making all the noises, we had a nice quiet quiz at Dante’s Fire.  I enjoy those once in awhile because it really gives us a chance to get the banter going.  Sass and quiz usually go hand-in-hand, and some of the quizzers would do well to remember that (heh).  So what did we learn tonight? I learned

Pub Quiz and Chill
A.

Pimlicans, We continue to have a lot of people come out for Geeks Who Drink. I approve of this. Please continue bringing your sucker friends. I love all of you. This week was noticeably more sedate than last; not really sure what it was—maybe the rain cooling things down—but everyone was very chill. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: It came from the last week in August, music that has to do with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, fill in the (two) blanks (sorry for calling you names, Wes, you were the nearest Ivy League grad I could pick on. You know I love you), arousal-killers, celebrities erased from movie posters, Flat Stanley being places

The Questions You Don't Answer
C.M. Geesey

Another round of Geeks Who Drink is in the books at the Rock, and that means for our quizzers another night of laughs and booze and frivolity is also in the books of their memories.  If that is indeed how their minds store their memories, that is; I’m no brain doctor.  I was as happy as always to see our room filled with some more teams ready to take on our latest and greatest round themes, including questions on arousal-killers and technobabble and Flat Stanley vacation spots not intended for children or adults with morals.  The Arousal-Killer round was entertaining for me as your quizmaster as I enjoyed seeing how many teams would pretend that they didn’t

Flat Stanley's Continuing Adventures
Brydon

We learned all about Flat Stanley at quiz tonight. If you don't know about this lovable, 3rd dimensionally-challenged, scamp, please either re-examine your childhood or check out wikipedia. Basically, a kid got flattened by gravity or dark magic or some shit and he mails himself places and does stuff. It's kind of a thing in schools too — kids print out and colour a Stanley or Stanleyrina and ship him or her off across the world, presumably to explore the trash bins of exotic new locations.   Well, in round 6 tonight, we ended up learning about Flat Stanley's newest not kid-safe adventures: he tangled

Well hey there!  It's been a minute since I've seen your faces.  I was out last week (seeing Explosions in the Sky!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and Ben took my place.  From what I can tell, he held it down!!  This past weekend I was out in Minneapolis so it feels like it's been AGES since I've been at the Foundry when in actuality it's just been 2 weeks! haha   If you ever get the chance to go to Minneapolis, I suggest you take it.  While I was down there this weekend the weather was absolutely fall like and perfect.  We got a slightly rainy start Saturday morning but it was overcast with a high of 67 or so degrees.  To me, this is ideal weather

Mom TV vs Dad TV: FIGHT!
Marianne No Filter

Things that happen when you watch TV with your mom: You enjoy yourself. You watch whatever you want. You say funny things, over and over again, like, “Oh, I wonder how he’ll get himself out of this pickle!” Seriously, she said it like 20 times, and it was never not funny. Our commentary is fun. We say all kinds of inappropriate things (now you know where I get it from). Watching shows with mom is just plain old relaxing. No pressure. If someone wants to change the channel, it gets changed to something we know the other will like. If one of us wants to get up and take a nap, then we get up and go take a nap. Things that happen when your dad decides it’s

No Filter is a NUMBER something year old woman who hails from an area where Wegmans rules and garbage plates are abundant. And, yes, we eat white hots and order pop. Don't know what that is? Come visit her, and she'll CHANGSPLAIN.

She gets her performance experience from being a middle child, posing nude for local art schools, playing in numerous pit-bands, and by being the best Euphonium player in the state of New York for two straight years. 

No Filter could be considered a "Jill of all Trades." She's licensed in massage therapy, but refuses to touch anyone, after having numerous clients "make things weird," certified in grades 1-6 and special education (and nearly finished her masters in literacy), and has a bachelors in health science. What is she doing with all of these specialties? Hosting quizzes, bartending, and professionaly wrestling alligators.

Come see No Filter host at The Angry Goat every Tuesday starting at 8pm. And she will be sure to let you know when she's subbing. Because she's an egomaniac.

I respect teams that use my name in their team names.

SARAH!

Hello my darling quizbabies,   Thanks as always for coming to quiz with me at the Shaskeen. We had a full house last night, check out that roster! I almost ran out of visual rounds-what will I use for scrap paper next week? Last night was a really tough game; even the pop culture questions were geography questions. Maybe next week we can have a wordplay round, those are my personal favorites.   Well last night's prize went to Cosby's Dark and Stormy Night. A real children's book you can purchase if you enjoy feeling disturbed! Second place belongs to Trivia Newton John. Let's get quizzical, am I right?

Good evening and happy Tuesday, my friends!I'm John, and I was your substitute quiz master last night.  Some of you may have recognized me from my training days at Frankford Hall back in my younger days (ok, so about a month and a half ago).  For most of you, I was a fresh face, a new and strange occurrence.  Worry not, your fearless (quiz) leader shall return on Tuesday next!I certainly enjoyed being your host last night, and I want to give a special shout out to Frankford

"Put the Wilder Back!"
Sean-Oh

Welcome Back everyone... I'll just say it: Here at GWD, we don't have many boundaries, so when Celebrities die, or do something that winds up all over our newsfeeds, we tend to have no mercy. I saw this happen back when Robin Williams passed away, as well as Prince, Alan Rickman, and David Bowie. But people were pretty chill and respectful of Gene Wilder passing away. Good on you guys. Anyways, On to some quizzness! This week was odd. Our team numbers fluctuated due to a lot of people at the bar sitting in for maybe a round, and then leaving. But we did have 7 teams stick through the entire game, so props to you! Round 1 was all about stuff that has happened in the last week

4 teams came out to Gypsy Parlor last night! Round one kicked off the night with a round on events that happened during the last week of August during various years. Teams did well on this round! Round 2 featured a music round on all of your pysiological needs. Teams did well on this round! Round 3 featured a bonus double point round. In this round I gave a list of locations based on the clue and the teams had to name the two locations that were missing. Teams did well on this round! At the end of 3 rounds Snowth claimed first followed by Quizzards in second and Tits For Cats in third! Round 4 was a round on arousal killers.

It IS easy being cheesy!
Katherine

This week, teams* paid homage to creeps and criminals via team-names.   *Not all teams – looking at you Mother, May I Sleep with Carlos Danger? And Jeffrey Dahmer’s Last Meal (this one haunts my dreams).   I have a theory - it will blow your mind. What if Anthony Weiner is actually a superhero? A superhero named “Carlos Danger”, perhaps…? That would explain why he continues to get caught sexting like a damn teenager – it’s to throw us off. You’d never suspect that someone THAT dumb had superhuman powers, right? It’s the only plausible explanation.   Enough

I Expected It To Be A Little Wilder
Natasha Noir

Truly, I am a little forlorn at the fact that I had but one team with reference to Gene Wilder. I thought EVERYONE loved Willy Wonka at bare minimum. Yes, I know the title of the film is Charlie and The Chocolate Factory; but we all know that wouldn't be the classic it is without his take on the man behind the goodies. I shudder to think that there are people in the world who have only been exposed to the creepy, borderline predator version portrayed by Mr. Depp. I loves me some Johnny but not in that role. Eew. Not even a little more love for Young Frankenstein? Blazing Saddles?....Really?! Ok, I guess that leaves me with one option. I say thanks to the one team that shout out to the recently

The Shnozzberries Taste Like Sad
L

Good afternoon, Geeks! It was lovely quizzing with you last night. Especially all you new participants. I'm always happy to initiate virgin geeks! Joining quiz at the last minute is the best decision you'll make all week- I guarantee it. Besides having a drink after a long, difficult Monday. That's pretty genius too. It was another depressing day of 2016. We lost the great Gene Wilder. It's always good to know there's refuge in a place like Neil's. It was a bit too early for a quiz round to get thrown together, but we had the TV going with all Wilder's greatest hits. My personal fave, Young Frankenstein, rolled during quiz. If you haven't seen it, consider that your homework for

I started quizzing way back in 2009 in a little 'ol town called Austin, TX. After making the move to Houston, I became a regular quizzer at Little Woodrow's Rice Village on Tuesday nights. It's more fun to win when you're beating grad students and doctors. A year went by, and I grew into quite the quiz addict. It was time to up the ante. I needed to be closer to the quiz action. At the auditions, I fought other contestants to the death to achieve an unexpected, well-fought victory. I now host Monday and Tuesday evenings while drinking delicious beer to forget the things I did to get here.

Before my quiz life, I attended school in San Antonio, where I became an English major and a rabid Spurs fan. During the day I work as a private tutor and professional taco slinger. When not engaged in any of these wonderful occupations, you'll find me buried in a book somewhere or out and about with my Australian Shepherd, Jam. I can even be spotted playing quiz on a Wednesday or Thursday. I can't quit you, quiz.

Join me for all my hosting smart-assery at Neil's Bahr Monday nights in East Downtown or in Rice Village at Little Woodrow's on Tuesdays.

Pros vs. Joes
Jimmy Williams

It was war of newbies against veterans last night at Cortland’s. The veterans won out, but hopefully the newbies caught the bug and will be even better prepared at their next matchup. I thought Round 1 on things that happened in the last week of August was atypically harder than a usual Round 1, but quizzers apparently disagreed and scores were high. Round 2 on songs based on Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs was also a little atypical in having several older songs that might easier for a broader audience, but there was just enough obscurity to make scores so-so. Round 3 was a 16-point round on naming the two places in a category not given. I think teams

Where is the audio?
Michael

So another great night at shooters sports bar, my favorite part is when the audio cuts out and we have to yell the questions to everybody! I would like to introduce a completely acoustic set called LANE AND MIKE YELLING SHIT VERY LOUDLY IN A CROWDED BAR. Tonight also seemed like a night where people felt the need to yell the answers..i dont know if anyone knows this..BUT YOU DONT YELL THE ANSWERS AND YOU DONT YELL NEVER LET GO JACK BECAUSE IT CONFUSES ME AND MAKES ME MISS TITANIC! Can you imagine if they made a titanic part 2? That would be ridiculous.  OR WOULD IT BE THE BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO US BECAUSE JACK IS LIKE ALIVE BUT NOW HES AN UNDERWATER SEA GOD AND CONTROLS
