The Olympics may be over, but the quiz competition has just begun. Everyone's back for the fall, the new semester, the same old beers, whatever! But we are definitely full quiz ahead at the bahr. I'm happy to have all of your giant brains back with me. Truly, I love fighting your pokemons the most.  We had three double point rounds last night! It made for some quality scores as well as a very close game. I know that can be stressful for yous guys, especially the newcomers, but this is why the Bahr is so great! The level of competition is always tops. Speaking of competition, now you can check just how awesome you are as a group on the GWD Houston Facebook page.

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.

Three-Way Tie Conclusion: There Are a Lot of TV Game Shows
Avram

Another packed night at Hideout Brewing Company Monday night for Geeks Who Drink. We are getting a lot of teams that have at least four players or more.   Another strong night for First Losers, Lumpy Areolas and Take Your Hands Off Me You Damn Dirty Remakes: Each team was neck-and-neck with each other for the entire night. So in the end, what happened?   Seriously? You don't know? Did you ignore the title completely. Wow...you are...you are...something...special. That's for certain.   So, for the tie breaker, I asked the teams if they wanted a category in music, movies or TV. In the end, the television

The Post Office is Terrible
Jose

It's now been approximately 40 days since I placed an order on Amazon for a board game. According to the USPS website two attempts were made on a Saturday. This is important because I had the package delivered to my work. This was an error on my part, clearly. The website told me that an attempt would be made the next business day. That Monday has obviously long passed and no attempt was made. I sent an online request for redelivery that week. That week has long passed and no new information was available online. I called in to ask about the status of my package. My expected wait time is over 2 hours, the machine offers to call me back when a representative is available, I opt in. The person

I only got the joke this morning..
Cole Hanson

Another great night of Geeks Who Drink at 10 Sports Bar & Grill, another morning where I wake up with an epiphany about a joke made the night before. Lougle Inc. has gone through yet another name change for the core team that has joined me for the last few weeks. I did not realize that it was from Hot Tub Time Machine until this morning... all the yelling makes so much more sense now. Some things go right over my head. This week was great fun all around and surprising from a historian's standpoint as everyone could somehow remember that Zachary Taylor was a Whig, but not that there were several presidents between Eisenhower and Reagan. With the school year starting

How dare you, Pachelbel.
Dale

I can't begin to tell you how happy it made me to see a question on the viral youtube clip "Pachelbel's Rant". I've known about this clip for a few years, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to go home and watch it right away. So now allow me to share the wealth of this video with you (again, if you've already seen it).  BTW, no ties last night....woo! First place went to Pink Martini with The BB-Greats hanging on to a very close 2nd.    Until next time yinz.

Postal Code Madness
Extra Terresticle

Our last question at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Night Shift Brewing concerned reversible postal codes. Basically, there are two pairs of states whose postal codes are the reverse of each other, namely Alabama (AL) and Louisiana (LA) along with Minnesota (MN) and New Mexico (NM). Now apparently a few of the Geeks confused postal code with zip code. I’ve done a little bit of research into zip codes over the years—my full time job sometimes involves mapping groups of people—so let me drop some zip code wizardry on you. There are approximately 43,000 zip codes active in the United States. There isn’t an exact count available because they

That time I watched 4 seasons of Hell’s Kitchen in a weekend
Jeanne Meowclane

I’m just going to lay this out front, I am in love with cooking shows. As someone who loves to cook at home and be a real Georges Perrier in the kitchen (he’s a pretty cool dude, look him up), I love watching cooking competitions and pretty much anything revolving around food.   Two weekends ago, since Masterchef is on a little break, I thought, hey why not, I’ll watch Hell’s Kitchen. I like Gordon Ramsey a lot, but he has SO MANY SHOWS! Too many really. But, I digress. I had seen a few episodes here and there on TV when I was in college and so I thought, why not?   What happened was a horrible downward spiral into that thing

The Quiz crowd at Jack's continues to be some of the best and brightest. We have a fantastic time every week, always have a great group with both high scores and hilarious answers, and snappy team names.  Our questions this week were on the upper echelon of average knowledge; both The Wobbly Table and Quiznatodd Bidness  Round 8's final question! How y'all knew that Alabama/Louisiana and Minnesota/New Mexico are had reversals of each others' postal codes is beyond me. Kudos for being smarter than the average quiz-bear.  Obviously winning best team name

Reality Bites!
Jake Schwingshakl

As most of my regulars know, I'm an avid attendee at ComicCon. Well, this past weekend was one such Con. While I was lucky enough to meet Michael J. Fox, Leah Thompson, David Duchovny, and John Barrowman, I really did not want it to end. While I'm happy to be back in my own bed, use my own shower, and get some actual rest, after running on pure adrenaline for three days straight, it takes a while to get back into the swing of things, and come down from a 72 hour binge.  At the same time, GWD doesn't really count as reality so it's not as bad as getting back to my real job(s) working in various restaurants in the Third Ward. But considering I got a limited edition Back to the Future

Bob, We Hardly Knew Ye
Chris

It's that time, folks. The time when the flame goes out, expensive ass-buildings become obsolete, and Bob Costas signs off one last time, not to be seen again for two more years. When Bob-o is gone, that's how you know the Olympics are over. I'm sure that Costas has plenty of stuff that he does to keep himself busy when he's not stating the obvious and conducting inane interviews with minors after the flame goes out, but I prefer to think that he just slowly starts to fade, until there's nothing left but an ethereal wisp that will only fully materialize again on the eve of the next opening ceremony. In completely unrelated news, I just

Team #DIY: Because No One Will Do It For You

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!!   One of these weeks, I’ll stop freaking out that there’s so many of you and accept it as normal. But today is not that day! It always makes me so happy to see our room full to capacity.   And holy shit, what a night we had tonight! I mentioned it during quiz, but in going on five and a half years as a quizmaster, I’ve never had a triple-digit score before. Oh sure, I’ve heard about other quizzes from around the country posting 100-plus-point scores, but I’d always dismissed them as anomalous (or outright fabrication). Then, tonight, our first-place team managed to

Concerning Unicorn Stuff and Pooped Pantaloons
Handsome Mike

Few things scream a deep seated desperation for escapism from the horrors of existence a childlike sense of whimsy and imagination like spending an entire weekend at the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire, and by god that’s exactly what I did this past weekend. I was in the company of close friends, including, but not limited to, my good friend booze. There are few occasions in my life (beyond Tuesdays) wherein it seems fully appropriate to drink an entire bottle of wine before 9:00am, but when you’re dressed as a plague doctor sitting next to a barbarian in a faux fur loin cloth amongst

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

Well hello you beautiful bastards. Slake sure was an interesting place last night. We had some fun and I made the terrible choice of crowd sourcing my beverage choice. I now know not to trust you animals and I also learned that Slake actually does carry Absinthe. I will admit that it was fun but damn do I hate the flavor of liquorish. We had some good teams in the house last night full of jokes and shit talk, my kind of crew. We kicked off the quiz with a current event round that was surprisingly devoid of Trump. There were some Olympic mentions but just one about wrestling. There was some great complaining about the audio round, I guess not everyone

Pete’s Dragon vs. Danerys’ Drogon
Pub QuIzzy

Dear Drunk Diary, They say I should go watch Pete’s Dragon, but there’s only space for one dragon in my life, and his name is Drogon. I’m so conflicted. What should I do? I know! Let them fight! If ever there was some crazy dragon vs dragon death match, I’d bet my money on Drogon. Let it be known that I am concerned about Drogon’s long naps after long flights and large meals. Even then, what harm can some stupid half James P. Sullivan from Monsters Inc., half Donkey from Shrek looking dragon do? Maybe it’s just me, but I like my dragons vicious. I would have bet on that Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter, but he lost my respect when he was beaten

Getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, nothing really changed.

I still play video games, I play with more expensive toys now a days, but I still play. Between delivering knowledge in the Pub Quiz or delivering jokes on the bar stage, the most important thing is to play.
