Welcome to another edition to Geeks Who Drink.  The competitive juices are in the air.  Blackhawks vs Sharks, Bernie vs Hilary, Trump vs others and now the next possible matchup of "Over the Line" and "Marilyn MonHoes". before i start, i have a few things that made this day interesting: Fat Tuesday = Fat Drinks Kids at the bar = Soap in Mouth mode.  Had to substitute words like F*#@ to Fudge and Assholery to Buttholery. With Larry David and Lex Luther winning their respected parties last night, Canada is starting look like a really good option.  Starting to develop a liking to Stout beer   Anyways

There Can Be Only One...
Pope Pepe

Loyalties are a funny thing. Take for instance tonight’s round about groups. Places where we belong. It’s funny in a way. We all strive for the individual, we all strive to what makes up different. Somehow or another we always wind up set into a group type of mentality. I’m guessing it starts in day care. Who has the least saggy diapers? Who is wearing the Gerber onesies and who is wearing the Baby Koala onesies and who has on the onesie that Kim and Kanye babies are wearing? I want to be in that group. The Knights Templar of the soft foam building blocks. It is a very drooly kind of group. From there we find our way to our groups in elementary school. Who watches the best

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.

La vie en fou
Safe with an R

I think February is the nexus of all weirdness throughout the year. The short days, the cold (in the northern hemisphere) all just come together to force strange things into happening and to promote feelings of malaise in twentysomething already-racked-with-existential-dread Quizmasters the world over. I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate one of my best friend's wives for delivering a healthy, if early, set of twin boys yesterday and helping to send me into a tailspin of dread as the temperatures veer from the 70s to snow conditions. Maybe that's why Aquariuses are born this month...if you're into astrology, which I am not. Basically what I'm getting at is this month

Courtney is a Vampire
@TristanGregson

  The Red Restaurant and Bar in downtown Santa Cruz has an ever evolving menu and tonight I tired some garlic Parmesan fries. Normally this wouldn’t be a news worthy event, as a fat guy who spends more than my average share of nights consuming bar food it would be even less than interesting if it wasn’t for the fact that these fries had an interesting side effect on the course of the evening. Our head bartender here in Santa Cruz is the lovely Courtney who usually on quiz night working a combination of ass kicking service and trying to rally the kitchen staff to make sure the bar team gets all eight of the visual round answers correct. Now in the moment I didn’t

I'm alright with not being the Illest.
Caribbean Joe

Alright, so all around me people are getting sick.  Family, co-workers, and friends are all coming down with random ailments.  Minor complaints all the way to full on flu, because of this, I live in constant fear.  As I talk for a living, I need to be able to make the random mouth noises that you all recognize.  And because of this, I worry about every little weirdness and now I am fixated on my throat.  I have a tickle going on and I fear the worst.  So if you don’t hear from me in 24 hours, send medication.  Really, the big concern is that if I do fall ill, will I be better by next week?  With Geek Bowl X coming up so quickly, I need to be in

I enjoy long walks on the beach, scooter rides and zombies.  

I have a BS in BS.  I can BS in at least 2 languages and I can convincingly imitate a few others.

I enjoy any occasion to dress up.  I will go disco, zombie or Mandalorian if you give me a reason. 

I am Caribbean Joe.  Born in Texas, I lived in the southwest pretty much all my life.  A desert dweller's life for me.  

So I picked up quizzing after my friend and scorekeeper, Island Amy, found an ad and prodded me to audition.  The rest is history.  Loving the quiz and the people it draws.  If I am not quizzing, you may find me out enjoying Tucson.

You may also see me around town on my scooter.  Feel free to wave.

If you want to know more, stop by and quiz and meet me and I just might answer your questions. Hell I may even answer you truthfully.

Stamps, Saved By The Bell, and the 3rd book of the Bible (Harry Potter)
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks, What a quiz tonight. First of all, I ordered rubber stamps for our bonus beers and they finally came in. I know that might not seem like the coolest thing to ever happen in your life - but my life is apparently way less exciting than yours so please just let me have this. Win a free beer and you can see how awesome it is, and maybe it will be the most exciting thing for a few moments - probably because you get a free drink more than my stamp, but whatever. There was a lot of great moments in tonight's quiz. Two teams were publicaly shamed after doing worse than chance in round three. Penultimate and Your Divorce Attorneys scored

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.

Don't Call It A Rat Pack
Cody H.

Did you know the the Rat Pack never actually used that name to refer to themselves? The one we think of, anyway. The original Rat Pack was lead by Humphrey Bogart, but after his death in 1957 Frank, Dean, Sammy & the rest started referring to themselves as "The Summit" or "The Clan". Even Joey Bishop, that never-was! There's a whole fascinating history to this group, as well as its ties to Vegas and old Hollywood, but that's neither here nor there. You can visit The Tops in Fallout: New Vegas and get basically the same experience.   Anyway, hello! Good night of quiz here at the Alamo Drafthouse as we were again in the cavernous Theater 6 and battled

Matthew Perry’s Hole or James Blunt’s Triangle?
Uncle Buck Mulligan

I’m going to be honest about the Sesame Street parody songs that comprised Round 2, Street Smarts, and say that I think most of them were as good or better than the original. Not least of all in this respect, the steaming pile of horseshit that is James Blunt’s “Beautiful” being turned into a slightly practical song about geometry. At least the world isn’t all terrible. In terms of pop music on Sesame Street, it’s no Katy Perry’s tits, but it not nothing either.   While we are continuing this honest streak, I’ll be straight with you and admit to slightly changing some of the quotes from Round 3, in which

Reasons not to give a crap about Mardi Gras
The Honorable Judge Amy

Happy Mardi Gras I guess. If that's what you're into.   As you can guess from the title, I don't particularly care about it.   Because at this time last year, I was drowning my soul in whiskey preparing for the dawn of my 40 days without alcohol.    It was terrible.   If you're considering giving up alcohol for any reason....lent, for fun, a detox....just don't do it.   Those were the darkest 40 days of my life.   The Timbers kicked off their season, and I couldn't toast them with a beer.   My co workers blew off steam and I was unable

See what the critics have to say about Amy:

"Wait a minute. Wait a minute, believe me. That's a tough quizmaster. She was born in a pool of gasoline on a piece of rusty scrap metal. I've seen that quizmaster jump through barbed wire into a vat of hot tar. That quizmaster? Is indestructible."- Special Agent Jack Bauer

"Polite as fuck" - Homeless stranger

See what Amy has to say about Amy:

I am a native Portlander. I am pro sandwich, whisky, beer, dogs, Oregon, and dancing all the time. I am anti mayonaise. When at a loss for what to say I spout out random facts. I have seen the two most famous wizards of our time (Harry Potter and Gandalf) naked, on separate occasions. I have just met you, and I love you.

Some nights I have time to ponder an idea, or search for an inspiring writing prompt. Then some nights I have to crank one of these out to go to bed and get up for work at 6am. THIS, is one of the latter.   BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! Toughest audio rounds pretty much evar? So much in common between Slater and Shakespeare in Round 3...so much. This Round 6 joke written but an automatic chat-bot.   And speaking of Round 6, did you sign up with me at the quiz for our new Bonus Email Prize Box thing? No? Seriously why the fuck not?

Hurry Boy, It's Waiting There for Youuuu
Tyler W

You know, if I were to use any one word to describe tonight, it’d be swingy.  We had some rounds with a massive discrepancy from best to worst team.  Our audio round had one team score only 3 points, while multiple teams scored well over 10 points on the round.  Round 3’s scores ranged from 2 to 7, round 4 had three teams with a perfect score and one team who only got 1 right, and round 7 had two teams with 1 or fewer points despite multiple teams breaking 10.  The result: some major swings in place between rounds.   That said, I’d be remiss if I didn’t congratulate the top 2 teams, Beets for Booze and

Tuesdays quiz: With a Bern-ing desire to avoid politics, I Trumped your pun.
Trevor Universe

Happy happy Tuesday. Somehow those New Hampshire primaries finished really early and what better way to celebrate than to come out and play the Geeks Who Drink Quiz with me at Rjs Replays! That’s right, although the primaries were over, our quiz was just heating up! And just like the primaries we had some close close races! You know since now is the Oscar season it felt like as good a time as any to brush up on our Oscar / movie facts. We started this quiz out with a section on movies with their plots reversed. Although I had never thought of it, Field of Dreams would be an amazing movie backwards. Kevin Costner plants corn over a baseball field and ghosts vanish into the corn. I loved

A Baby Doll Named Saved by the Bell
Christie Barrows

Tonight’s quiz was another big one. Twelve teams! Lots of teams makes for a super exciting quiz with lots of energy! Which I definitely needed, as today, I was TIRED! I spent the weekend in the Bay Area for the Super Bowl, which was such an incredible experience. As a result of such a crazy weekend, my brain opted out tonight. It only takes a small amount of mental math to add the scores for each round for each team, but I was definitely on the struggle bus. Quick recap of the rounds, from my perspective, which is tainted with exhaustion. Round 1: You’re Watching It Wrong- This round was about movies if you watched them backwards. I think it’s

Jurassic Larks
Quizmaster Jason

Another Tuesday night, another The Old Pequliar quiz. Again we had nine teams compete, though two dropped out before the end. There’s Always Next Week absolutely dominated this with quiz, beating their nearest contender by 17 points. Laser Cats took a distant second. Because of the drop-outs, Jurassic Larks won our coveted Thank God I’m Not Last Award™.   In times past I’ve tried lots of things to fill out this blog. I’ve talked about individual rounds, or called out perfect scores. Called out funny team names, or offered editorials on the rounds. If there’s something you want

Jason's primary profession is as a programmer, but he spends the rest of his time being a geek. Which means he spends all of his time being a geek. He has a love of all things fantasy and sci-fi, except the things that suck (I'm looking at you Babylon 5). He hasn't quite mastered talking about himself in the third person, as evidenced by his last sentence.

Well, sports fans, it's been one hell of a ride. In fact, your very own Peyton Manning has all-but-certainly rode his last rodeo into the sunset as of this writing. But even an epic parade party couldn't stop us from rallying round the Broncos with a pocketful of quiz this week.  Civic center park might've been jam packed most of today, but the Ox was impressively intimate this evening. We had nine teams throughout the night and it was great to see so many of our neighbors checking out the quiz, some of them for the first time.

Being in the city on Sunday night reminded me of being in Berlin for New Year’s. People running around yelling, setting off fireworks, almost blowing one another’s feet off… such a lovely time to be in Denver. Especially for something I don’t give two craps about. WHAT!?! YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT FOOTBALL!?!? Screamed everyone. No, no I don’t. But before you go throwing tomatoes and iceberg lettuce at me, I’ll have you know that the one time I went to a football game, I enjoyed the shit out of the ridiculously expensive beer and the awesome selfie my boyfriend and I took (it consisted of a grumpy old man inadvertently photo
