The Most Expensive Grunt Ever
Extra Terresticle

The final question at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz asked for the four highest-paid actors in television history, a list that included Charlie Sheen, Kelsey Grammer, Ray Romano, and Tim Allen. Yes, that Tim Allen. The guy who spent nine seasons grunting his way through being a husband, raising three sons, and hosting a show in a show. By the end of Home Improvement’s run, he was making $1.25M per episode. Crazy, right? That’s more per episode than the individual cast members of Friends, than Jerry Seinfeld, than anyone on The Big Bang Theory. I’m sure his star roles in The Santa Clause and Toy Story in the mid-90s helped, but I still wouldn’t

...With a Side of Crazy
Kavi Kardoshian

It may have been a pretty intimate quiz at the Drag Bar last night, but that didn't stop it from being eventful. We of course had the debate playing on a few TVs with the captions on, and then there was Dancing with the Stars, of course. Rick Perry dancing. Plus Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump dancing. Or, in the case of the latter, flailing wildly with his tiny hands. I still haven't read a full recap of the debate, so I don't know very many details, but I did read enough of the captions and enough short-version recaps to know that my (everyone's) predictions pretty much came true. Clinton killed it with poise and well-reasoned arguments while Donald basically

Cyndi Lauper's Chlorine Hair Dye
Travis

Woah, hey! Thanks to everyone who actually skipped the debate to come play quiz last night! You're really all the best. And we got to watch it all with the sound off anyways, which is probably better.   Besides that, what did we learn last night? We learned that mite skeletons are pretty tasty. We learned that Art Garfunkel might actually be able to improve The Big Bang Theory. And finally, we learned that Cyndi Lauper uses too much chlorine.   Congrats to the top two teams last night! Our Vote's for Quiz (awww, thanks) came in first, and Toonces Mysterio came in second! Way to go!

Happy Birthday Sandip Part I: 30 is Now
JWarr

We had a blow out birthday party quiz for your favorite Indian guy who just turned 30.  Happy birthday Sandip, its all down hill from here.  All he wanted for his birthday was to win a quiz, but alas, two would be out to stop him.  Taste the Rainbow of Death and Just a Shot Away took home the top prizes by a longshot, leaving our birthday boy sad and confused. So to cheer him up, I turned into a DJ! We even met some new friends from Chicago and partied our asses off all night.  Rachel finally got her turkey leg photo, new teams promised us a return come back, and all in all, it was a great night.  At the stroke of

Traffic is Out of Control
Jose

This isn't just another "Native" rant against transplants. I've lived in Denver or one of its suburbs my entire life. When I was younger I thought Colorado was a crap state, but as I got a bit older I realized how very wrong about that I was. For the most part the rest of the country has generally looked at Denver as a cow town. Now that we're all cool with our legal weed and improving economy it seems out of state folks can't move here fast enough. People who ten years ago would have made fun of the city and said that there was nothing here are climbing over each other to get here. I don't really mind that these people are moving here, not for the normal reasons that most locals have complained

Preston didn't choke at all
Helena of Troy

What can I say? Preston stepped up to the plate. And what a plate it was! None of this, bite sized, happy hour plates. A full meal sized plate and he devoured it.  Some winners, some just staving off the wolves in 3rd place, and of course some arguments on the pronunciation of 'Aluminium'. My finish date is now next week, because of these old feetsies needing a break at the end of the day...or at any time really. They just prefer to be up.  Zoe is lined up to take the lead! Be kind to her and I hope she garners the same kind of cult following I appreciate.

Back to the Ol' Stomping Grounds
Matt

Apparently 'the future of our country' is more important than knowing random knowledge about the highest paid actors in TV history. What has this world come to when 'foreign policy' takes precedent over having a wide vocabulary of words that begin with 'x'?  Two great titans battled it out last night in a 2-hour spectacle hosted by some imbecile who can barely tie a neck-tie properly. Who am I talking about, you ask? No - not Trump and Hillary... I'm talking about The Godless Armadillos and The Einsteins, who were neck and neck through 7 rounds. And it's true - I'm terrible at neck ties. Yes, I suppose you could say I was demoted due to Donald Trump... But I won't be the

Thanks everyone for coming out, in the rain, missing the debate, and for allowing me to interrupt the football game by asking you questions about football movies.  Team Debatable grabbed the lead early on and held it.  Our second place team, Make America Dank Again went from the middle of the pack to second place by rallying in the second half of the quiz.

What does YOUR family own in south Texas, Bro?!
StevieFresh

Hey there, Parlor & Yard! Thanks so much to everyone for coming out last night. I know it must have been a sacrifice to keep the debates on silent while we played an amazing game. So, other than the fact that Hillary freaking owned, what did we learn? Well Round 1 taught me personally that I have a hard time saying “Terpsichore” even though it’s the name of Olivia Newton-John’s character in Xanadu. I mean come on! Who even am I? That movie is really just awful but the SOUNDTRACK!!! Electric Light Orchestra AND ONJ? It’s a match made in Olympus. You

There's no debate, Geeks Who Drink is amazing
TJMcDonald

OK, that wasn't the most creative title ever invented, but I felt it was important to give a shout out to the presidential debate. And by shout out I mean one singular shout out so that's all I'm going to say about that. If you want to hear more about the debate just check your Facebook feed so you can watch total strangers rip into each other over the debate while simultaneously not being able to change anyone's mind. If you don't have Facebook let me say that you are a very wise person and have made some good life decisions. I suppose I should say something about the quiz. After all, they don't pay me $10 an hour for nothing. Ha ha, just kidding I don't get paid that much.

Get to Know Paddycake a Little Bit
Paddycake

I have decided that the next couple of blogs will be a questionaire about me, so you all can get to know me a little bit better. So, here is part 1!! Do you like blue cheese? Actually, yes I do. But, it has to be used correctly. Blue cheese has the tendency to completely overpower whatever you add it to, and I have ordered food that had it and all I could taste through the whole meal (and several hours afterwards) was blue cheese. If it is added sparingly it is an awesome accompaniment to a good burger, steak, or mushrooms.    Do you own a gun? No. It's not that I am against guns. Quite the contrary, actually.

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Up for debate

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   The election of the next President of the United States has become an ever-expanding circus. Think about it; everyone makes jokes about retailers who start putting up Christmas decorations right after Halloween, but we start the Presidential election cycle over a year and half in advance these days. That’s 18 solid months of awkward, on-message tweets from candidates’ official twitter handles and irrational, divisive arguments on facebook walls. In the era of 24-hour news coverage, that’s 12,960 hours of talking heads, “he said/she said,” conjecture, name-calling, and in general

September, We Hardly Knew Ye

Tonight we bid farewell to September. It feels like it just started and already it’s gone right by. But with that, I know Halloween can’t be far behind and I can now break out my hoodie/sweater collection without bursting into flames. Also all those bugs and allergens will be a thing of the past soon and we’ll be ready to hibernate and binge watch all the stuff that we’ve been ignoring so that we could be outside in the sun. Enough of that ode to autumn, what went down at quiz? Every once in a while a celebrity pops up at quiz. Usually in KC, it’s a local meteorologist or morning tv personality.

Was there something going on last night that kept everyone away from our weekly pub quiz?  Like, an important national televised event that all good citizens should have been watching?  Definitely not the Falcons-Saints game on Monday Night Football.    Oh well, I'm sure I'll think of it.  I'm still here, quizzers, having survived the big party weekend for the Great American Beard and Moustache Championship.  223 beardos competed over the weekend to see who could party the hardest without succumbing top altitude sickness or Franken-weed overdose.  One guy even got hit by a car and still finished in second place.  That guy was not me,

Corrina, The God of Music Selection, Wrote This Blog
Corrina Briggs

Last night at Oskar Blues, we had three regular teams and a great time. Round 1 was our X round, where all of the answers began with the letter X. The second I said the words “Olivia Newton John,” Kelsey’s Kin immediately knew the answer to that question. However, our younger team Last Napkin looked around wondering what the hell I was talking about. Kelsey’s Kin joked with them that it was a generational thing, and they would get them on all of the pop culture. Judging by the scores, it looks like they overestimated Last Napkin just a little bit. At one point in the night, somebody asked me

Between a Rock and a Dumb Place
Ben

This was an especially turbo round, as I needed to wrap it up before the debate that started at 9:00 tonight. Other quiz givers might see this as a strange situation, but the DC crowd take their politics very seriously, you see.    No huge surprises tonight. Those damn Age Of Consent-ers took first place by a sizable margin of 6 points, leaving team Fuego in their dust well early into the game. I tried to put people at ease, explaining that there were still many rounds to go, and a lot of teams without their jokers used, but it was false reassurance.
