Icenhauer's: A Swan Song
AB Baby

I have to admit something, y'all. This is the hardest blog I've written for Geeks Who Drink so far. It's not entirely because it's the last one I ever get to write for Icenhauer's but more that I'm just really terrible at goodbyes.Like, seriously. Once at the end of a quiz I didn't know how to sign off and i said "peace out." My quizzers were very quick to call me out on my foolishness with that one.So in an attempt to keep from being overly sappy or sad, I'm simply going to leave you with three of my favorite goodbyes:1. "Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened." - Dr. Seuss2. "You always were an asshole, Gorman." - Aliens - it seems appropriate

Quizmaster Jason

We set a new record at last night’s quiz. 26 teams competed. But as always, we could only have one victor. That honor went to Frog N’ Beans, who as a two-person team earned an astonishing 81 points. Not far behind them was one of our Rumble In the Pub teams (that’s still going through today) Arsenic and Lee Pace with 78 points. We had a couple of teams drop out at the end, which didn’t qualify them for last place or “not last” place… and the team that won didn’t collect their prize so, I gave it to the lowest team that was still there. I don’t remember who that was.   We’ve been

Tronald Dump

It may sound like I delight in calling out teams of 7+ people, telling them they can’t win any prizes because rules and whatnot, but I don’t take any pleasure in this; I believe they genuinely didn’t hear me mention the team limit, so I sympathize. What I do take a bit more pleasure in than I probably should is when I tell these teams to just get rid of their weakest player(s) when they come back next week. You can feel everyone on the team trying really hard to not all look at that one person, who’s obviously the worst, at the same time. Like they’re pretending it’s some tough decision that they’re going to have to consider carefully,

GWD got me banned from Disneyland
Ravioli

Second night at Paper Street was pretty good. Had 7 teams “competing” for the prizes, but realistically only 5 were ever in the money. Dirty Fingernails thought they were Going Places (TM) from their second-to-last place finish from last week, and technically, they DID, finishing in third-to-last place. Considering both teams below them managed to stick around the whole night, that’s Real Improvement (TM). Intera-Gators made a move for the podium with a solid 8th round joker, but couldn’t quite close the 2 point gap to The Colonial Robbys. Penultimate

Between Anything and Everything, I Choose Nothing...
Tyler W

Ok, before I get into the heavy stuff, I just want to remind all of you that based on the number of incorrect answers to Q6 of the last round, you should really watch The OC sometime.  It’s basically if you took Good Will Hunting, added in California and Adam Brody being amazing, and made it a TV show about two nerds surviving in the richest town in America.  That’s right, the main characters are both fantastic nerds.  They frequently play Dynasty Warriors on the PS2, make comic book references, and listen to awesome early 2000s punk rock.  Alright, I think I’m getting off topic here, but seriously go watch it and then next time you’ll know that

When You Care Enough To Send The Very Vest
Mumbles Jones

What a trip in the wayback machine I took last night at quiz! Fifteen teams challenged themselves and each other for supremacy, including some new faces and some old ones as well. Not that the faces themselves were old, per se, just that I haven’t seen them around in a while. Speaking of new things, we debuted a new round last night as well. I gave you the ends of a list of items, you were to give me either any one of those items, or all of them if you wanted more points. Most of y’all did pretty well. I found that, while most of you know your parts of the knee, very few of you had ever heard of JC Chasez. Which, I suppose, is how it should be. We also learned what

I enjoy reading and long walks on the beach. I've been around and seen a few places and done a few things. Even after all that, my wife/scorekeeper still liked me enough to put a ring on it.

Are the VMAs Still Relevant???
Sarah

This week MTV gave artists the illustrious moonman at the Video Music Awards and I paid homage to many of the night's biggest winners via the Spotify station dedicated to the VMAs. So I watched the awards and either I'm too old to know what the heck is going on, or else the VMAs are pointless. Which made me realize I truly do side with Kanye West on this fact, as he succinctly pointed out that awards shows let you feel like a loser...   You know who doesn't feel like a loser? The awesome participants that came out and played GWD with me at Denver Deep Dish! I recognized some regulars - Jake From State Farm was back in action

Uber. Drivers Wasted.
Handsome Lou

Round 1 was fun during last nights quiz. The category was “Reach Out and Torch Someone.” I changed a letter in a popular ad slogan and contestants had to name the product or company. The clue to number 5 was Drivers Wasted. I got a lot of teams guessing Uber. The correct answer was Volkswagen as in, Drivers Wanted. Maybe it makes sense... Anyway, it was an exciting finish on Wednesday night at The Bronx Beer Hall. Shrek 1: Big Danny’s Reboot was hanging strong the whole game. They were consistently in the top 5 during rankings, but they played it smart and saved the joker for the 8th round. That

In Which We Welcome our New Scorekeeper

We (as in you quizzers and me) worked our asses off and gained a scorekeeper, who joined us last night for her first quiz as an SK. Everyone please give a warm welcome to Nathalie! Nathalie did an awesome job corralling the answers from 16 teams, and we all had a blast as usual. Our new round format (Anything and Everything Between) worked us over hard on round 3, with a lot of teams and your friendly neighborhood scorekeeper scratching our heads and wondering what random deity we'd pissed off. But we came back strong with a solid couple rounds, to finish the quiz with some high scores! The Baby Ate My Dingo took home #1 with a well-timed joker, knocking returning

The Late Late Blog with Adam Harmon
@adammanski

Quizzers, I am still fighting the Wi-Fi-less-ness at my place and it’s the worst. I did however get myself an Xbox 360 and a copy of Skyrim so I started a new campaign. I’m a Wood Elf and he seems pretty cool even as a level one. He has some sort of natural animal control ability so occasionally wolves don’t attack me and just stop and look at me funny and follow me around. Anyway let’s look at the quiz.

Forget chicken and waffles, give me a chicken place with nothing but red head waitresses. “Rhode Island Reds”! New

Everyone loves a good underdog story.  You know, like  Cool Runnings! Or in Rudy, where that Hobbit guy wins all the footballs.  Or Simon Birch where the handicapped kid kills a lady but then wins everyone's hearts.  Well last night was EXACTLY like that!! The lovely ladies of the Bambinos have been here week in and week out, always giving it their all but ending up somewhere in the middle.  A couple of weeks ago they told me that SOMEDAY they would land in the money, SOMEDAY they would place at quiz.  Well someday was last night.  Throughout the quiz The Bambinos were in the middle of the pack but then when we least expected

12 teams came out to Cole’s last night! Round 1 kicked off the night with a round on ad slogans. Congrats to Smarty Pints, and The Walt White Stripes for scoring perfect rounds! Round 2 featured a music round entitled “8 songs, 4 women”. Teams did well on this round! Round 3 featured a bonus 16 point round where teams had to name either one of the answers in a specific category or all of the answers in said category. I personally liked this round, it required strategy. Teams overall did well on this round! At the end of 3 rounds Smarty Pints lead the pack followed by Inanimate Carbon Rods in second and Laser

Hi, Little Woodrow’s Midtown pub quizzers. Sup? I’m doing alright. Thanks for asking. We had a quiz last night. It was pretty good. It stopped raining. That’s usually a good sign. I made the team name theme Kanye West. For some reason, you actually listened when I said that our scorekeeper and I like Kanye West and you weren’t too mean about him. That was sweet. We appreciate you. It got kinda rowdy with some of the baseball-watchers. I have trained you well. You do all my dirty work for me—without even being asked. Thank you, teams, for shouting at people to shut the fuck up without being prompted. Plausible deniability all around. We

What’s up guys? It’s Kent, back again. Big shout out to Rob for subbing for me last week. I had to go to my other job—which sucks since they aren’t nearly as cool with drinking on the job as Geeks Who Drink. I did enjoy coming back to Maddie’s Biergarten though. I was greeted with the information that one team went super dirty with their name last week (Ass to Mouth). I challenged them to go EVEN dirtier this week and I have to say—they kind of failed. They went with Tickle Your Chode Daily which is both a good name and a fun thing to do, BUT not nearly as dirty as Ass to Mouth (the name or the act).   The quiz was also a fun one. One
