It's Only For a Few Months
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players!   Well, seven teams make a good turnout for our last pub quiz at Sporting Life Bar. The plan is that we will be coming back when College Football season ends. Like I mentioned at the end of the quiz last night, feel free to check out our other locations in Vegas, Nevada or anywhere else in the U.S. by clicking on different states. I’ve done that with cities where I use to live or if a friend in another state wants to talk about it. Thanks to everyone that understood my t-shirt and complimented me on it as well. My wife is on episode 2, so I am getting to watch it again! Anyway, Like I said, I hope you all will find other

Harry Potter Was A Mistake
Cody H.

Folks, What a night! Thrills, chills and spills abounded as we gathered into Theater 9 3/4, passed through the wall, and got into our seats for the fifth-ever Harry Potter theme quiz, brought to you by Geeks Who Drink. It was our first ever theme quiz here at Vintage Park, and it was an honor to be the one who brought it to you. We packed the house, and I hope you all had a wonderful time putting up with questions you didn't know the answer to, a slideshow of questionable content, and a length that ran a little be longer than usual. But when you have a sudden-death round at the end, as well as SO MANY TEAMS (44, final count!), some delay is to be expected. But thank y'all all so much for coming

Cody is a mushmouthed nerd who somehow got a job reading quiz questions to strangers. Like you! His first quiz was at the nerdiest place possible, a comic convention, and look where we are now; and it can happen to you if you follow your dreams! Cody is open to bribes.

A Fistful of Butt Munches
SirYon

You missed it. Kevin Bacon was here. Actually, that’s not really anything to boast about. He probably kept more people away than he attracted. I guess that 6 degrees of separation thing is kinda outdated. Maybe if he would appear in good movies for a change the game would be better.   Beavis and Butthead were here, though. They were our musical Statler and Waldorf tonight as they couldn’t get over the fact Björk grabbed her crotch for a second and a half during the “Big Time Sensuality” video. Which, by the way, you should totally watch that video. One of the coolest things to come out of the early 90s. Someday I hope to dance on the back of

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

The Wonderful Quizzarding World of Harry Potter
Ptera Dactyl

Wow! Another year, another Harry Potter themed quiz. Every year they get harder and harder, as we have to delve deeper into the lore to get fresh questions. We got a whole other book this year, though, so that helped! There were so many names, I can’t believe you guys got them all. Any person that played would be proud to say they placed at all. Sorry about those too-soon dead-kid jokes. R.I.P., fam. Pour out a lil’ butterbeer for the homies. Congrats to Panju’s Passenger Pigeon Patronus for taking

Then the son, Kronos, from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father's members and cast them away to fall behind him...and a white foam spread around them from the immortal flesh...and came forth an awful and lovely goddess, and grass grew up about her beneath her shapely feet. Her gods and men call Ptera Dactyl

Hey quizzerinos. Taylor here.  We made it! We made it to the other side of The Geeky Cauldron and we are all a little better for it. I can only imagine how many people are out rewatching and/or re-reading after reliving so many delightful details. When my husband and I started dating he had never read Harry Potter; he had only seen the movies.  He couldn’t understand why people liked Dobby, or (shockingly) why people liked Dumbledore. To him Dobby was just an irritating distraction who served no real purpose and Dumbledore was the guy who yelled at an overwhelmed Harry after his name was drawn for

And No One Died a Most Painful Death
Rhino

I don’t know about you, but I’m just recovering from our Harry Potter quiz at Sedgwick’s yesterday. It was honestly the most fun quiz I’ve hosted in memory. Thanks a ton to our lovely hosts, Sedgwick’s Bar and Grill, for getting into the spirit with some House Potion drink specials and of course for letting me hog their sound system and microphone for a couple of hours. I want to salute those brave souls who dug into the bowl of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor beans, and assure you that I too had tried all the flavors, and rotten egg is by far the worst. I feel your pain.

This Magic Moment, With Your Quiz So Close To Mine
David

Welcome to Blogmorts, What a magical quiz we had at Fado for the great Harry Potter Quiz! I absolutely loved it, but how can you go wrong when the magical community comes together for such a wonderful celebration. Better than the Triwizard Tournament or the Quiddich World Cup. Austin has the best of the Harry Potter fans.  I loved watching people showing up so early and in costume, claiming their seats and preparing to do battle with the other teams. I don't think we could ask for a better looking venue than Fado, with everything in the place meant to look like a nice pub of the English isles,

Oh hello there! I'm David, The finest Okie you will ever meet (that means Oklahoma) outside of the fine state shaped like a pan. I like to spend my time reading books or going on adventures in the real world. Nothing says relaxation like a classic cocktail or Scotch on the rocks and if the mood strikes me a fine cigar. If the moon hits me right I'll probably start singing a song at random or climb the tallest thing I can find. One of my crowning achievements was drinking a beer in every building on the OSU campus while attending. My new goal is every roof in downtown Austin, if you can help you will be my hero.

Team names can tell a story, if you interpret it just right...
That tall guy who talks a lot during the quiz...

The Life of Quiz: A story made up of  team names.  Terryl is Cool. This is a given. She's an awesome bartender, and really cool person. So, it is with a bit of trepidation that I tell the story of the weirdest night she's ever had at a bar.   Some guys come in and start freaking out. They'd been playing PokemonGo and had found a rare one: a Teenage Mutant Ninja Squirtle had graced them with its presence, but they weren't able to catch it. Despite using Razzberries, and Great Balls, with a wild Kapower!, it escaped time and again, then ran away. Really? they

We all were crazy excited to be there.  We had a completely packed restaurant and were turning away the poor regular muggles to make way for all of our Cleansweeps, Nimbuses, and Firebolts, owls, newts, cats, galleons, knuts, fizzingwhizbys, and other paraphernalia.  Did you see that baby?

The Cursed Child is the stepchild of the Harry Potter franchise
Avram

Wow! Another amazing night with players from all over West Michigan coming out to play.   To say this Harry Potter was hard is an understatement. A lot of players told us afterwards that the fact they had to name characters with their first AND last name was the hardest part of the quiz. Many players knew a lot of the characters, but not their full names...which was a pity because that was necessary for nearly half the points of the quiz.    None of the 22 teams playing were able to name any of the three actors playing the main characters in "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" play. When this was mentioned, the reaction from the crowd

What?  Just WHAT?  Is this how awesome Harry Potter themed quizzes ALWAYS are or did I just win the Annual Daily Prophet Grand Prize Galleon Draw?  I mean, seriously.  I haven’t had this much fun since Griffindor won the Quiddich Cup!   The Geek trolls put together a super fun and challenging quiz.  In a room full of Hogwarts hopefuls, I heard all manner of whispered and shouted incantations (curses?).  Every team was ready to take their O.W.L.s and some were aiming for their N.E.W.T.s.  Yeah… it was pretty intense.   My buddy and ‘keeper’ for the night, Russ, was sporting his Griffindor gear.

This was a quiz for the ages!!! So hotly contended, everyone brought their A game! So this was the first theme quiz ever held at Sactown Union and they killed it! Unless you came less than a half hour early (which we always recommend never doing) there was plenty of seating and the beer flowed like wine. Shout out to our first place team, which also had my favorite name, Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them, that is a book that I would actually read!! The questions were great, and I think my favorite round was the fake yearbook posts. The reaction for some of the characters were perfect!!! I cannot wait until the next themed quiz, which if

Today we hosted The Geeky Cauldron: A Harry Potter Quiz at White Horse and it was a great success!  All in all 51 teams played for a first place cash prize of almost $400!  We covered lots of book canon with a few movie questions thrown in, too.  We gave away some bonus prizes, too!  To our first place team at the halfway point (For Fawkes Sake) we gave a Dumbledore Pop! Figurine and prior to the quiz, I hid a Golden Snitch under a chair - that person won a Dobby Pop! Figurine.   Top prize this evening went to Neville Gonna Give You Up, Neville Gonna Let You Down, a 5-person team (but down to 4 people halfway through).  I

Snape Vs. McClain: Kedavra Harder
BJ the Gozerian

Accio blog! Dammit, that didn’t work. I guess I’ll have to do it myself. You know, if I went to Hogwarts, I think I would do way more cheating than we saw in the films and in the words of the books. Like, I’d summon muggle psychics like Cleo to help me out with divination, or I’d call in a pack of thestrals to draw and quarter the mean ol’ arithmancy teacher. Because screw that guy, always with the greek and whatnot. I guess we can talk about the quiz. Fine. So here goes. I’m gonna do it. I really am. Just right after I do this. Ok, fine now. Wanna talk about some close scores? Too bad, I’m gonna do it

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. But I can sell your house and help you buy a new one, because I'm a REALTOR (all caps because I can). You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

Tables full of Hogwarts House colors, adorned with flickering candles, areas festooned with Galleons, Sickles and Knuts (edible, too!) and bubbling cauldrons!
