U of U College of Garmacy
Gar

Wow! What a night? That was a tremendous Quiz for a Cause in support of the University of Utah’s College of Pharmacy. Loads of people donated, tons of raffle prizes were awarded, sweat poured from my furrowed brow and the thin orange line was respected (that’s what I just decided the strict code of loyalty amongst pharmacists is called). The night started strong with round 1 scores looking really good, but round 2 stopped most people in their tracks. JAC Strikes Back were the only team in double digits, which launched them ultimately into a dance off for 2nd place with Broncos. The Broncos bucked e’er so much more, although

Gar is an idiot man-child who likes cats, video games and beer.

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

Did we mention the cats?

Tagalog With Me
Travis

Hey, now! Always a wonderful time at the Cashew for Geeks Who Drink! We had a great showing with great people, and maybe a few aggravating questions. Thanks to everyone that came out!   The biggest excitement for me was having a friend I haven't seen for a number of years because she lives in Spain show up to trivia. But enough about me.   What did we learn from last night's game? We learned that a great basketball player holds the title to the best cameo in movie history. Italians in America don't want to speak Italian. Someone out there totally has the hots for a president assassin. And Lance Armstrong will always be a horrible waste of a life.   Congrats

Obama, better President than DJ
Caribbean Joe

Part of last night’s quiz was selections from the official White House summer Spotify playlist.  Now there are a lot of people that stop and ask why the government needs to have such a playlist. With all of our ongoing problems, the government needs to focus on solving them, like that would actually happen.  The real question is why does the playlist have to be so lame?  How many staffers and meetings were held to discuss the songs to be added?  I can see a room full of people with charts showing pros and cons for certain songs, and others arguing how British performers should be included to improve relations with the UK.  Then someone else argues that more “classic

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.

I'm Your Boyfriend Now Nancy

Tonight we celebrated the works of the late great Wes Craven. I grew up a huge A Nightmare on Elm Street fan, those were the pinnacle of cinema to me.   Wes was a very interesting figure. He had impressive degrees in English, Psychology, Philosophy, and Writing. He left his career as a professor to direct pornographic films, much of his work under pseudonym. Eventually he branched out into slasher horror. We honored the professor, early pornographer, Audubon director, and horror legend, Wes Craven.   We had good action on the tables tonight, 42 competitors showed up for the endorphin rush. In the end, our wetland friends Duck Army

Root Beer Floats My Boat
JeffreyTanguay

  Root Beer Float My Boat   New beers come and go at a lot of bars these days, since there are so many companies making alcoholic beverages. Jackson's, our awesome venue, just started selling alcoholic root beer. I noticed a sign as I was getting set up, and then slowly, over the course of the night, I started to see more and more root beer empties around, and I realized that people were making root beer floats with this new boozy root beer. What a great idea! I, however, already had a playlist of beer scheduled in my head, and chose to stick with it. Worth it.   I am excited; I have a whole bunch of day-drinking planned,

This is a bio:

I like to ride my motorcycle, even though other motorists scare the crap outta me.

I enjoy cooking, especially for friends. Alcohol is usually integral to this.

I read a lot, but mostly fiction. 

I have a crazy music collection. Music is awesome. Well, a lot of it at least.

I have seen tons of movies, and have a watched a few of those waaaay too many times.

I am just good enough at playing guitar to not completely suck at guitar.

I like getting to the tops of things, so climbing and hiking are my favorite outdoorsy stuff.

Our Chief Executive's House is Cooler than Yours
Real Maple Syrup

Man, things are so hip in the White House nowadays, making Spotify playlists and all. What kind of music do you think Obama jams out to, sings along to in the back of his chauffeured limosine? I feel he’d mix up some classic hip hop with old school goodies, think a mashup between 90’s Will Smith and the Temptations?Then, for curiosity's sake, I Googled the White House - as of this morning, 9/2/15, there are 3,684 Google reviews of the White House and 354 Yelp reviews averaging 4 to 4.2 stars - 4.2 stars at best!? How could anyone give it less than 5 stars? It's the freakin' White House! But, read the reviews, some are hilarious. Per one suggestion for White Houes improvements,

It's a busy day today, so lets recap what happened last night during the first day of September.  It was a sweltering 90+ degrees in Brooklyn, and thankfully they keep the Salty Dog cool as can be.  Really, they have some of the coldest beer on tap.  You need to check out the selection.  Try and do it every Tuesday Night at about 8PM?  Eh? Eh?   So it was only two teams this evening, but that just means they were meant to win it.  We had "1.21 Gigawatts" with 54 points, and "Semi;Colonoscopy" with 51 points.  A dead heat until the very end.  The scores just kept going back and forth.  I was

Last night I announced for the first time that my time at the Three Lions Pub will be ending.  In a few weeks, I will be returning to school, and unfortunately because they want all of my moneys, I am taking evening classes which allow me to work during the week.  I've had a lot of fun working for Geeks Who Drink, and especially at the Three Lions Pub.  I have some of the best quizzers and the best staff I could ask for.  Even on days like yesterday, when I was feeling pretty low, they keep my spirits high.  And I'm very thankful for that.  I look forward to enjoying the next two nights before I say goodbye.  Last night five teams played our lovely

Hey there!

My name is Sara Lydia Coleman Campbell, and I run the most awesome GWD quiz at the Three Lions Pub in Downtown Redmond.  When I'm not quizmistressing, I'm probably playing superheroes with the boys I nanny for or eating way too much hummus.  At night I get to cuddle up to a 13-pound mutt better known as the love of my life, Edmund.  Except for that one time he bit me and I went to the ER.  

I love hosting as well as playing quiz.  I also like drinking Red Bull and taking naps.  Sometimes I'll drink a Red Bull right before I take a nap.

*Ghostface voice* What's your favorite Wes Craven Obituary?
JDB1138

Hello, Sidney... ahem, I mean... hello, quizzers! What can you say about Wes Craven that hasn't already been covered in one of the hundreds of columns written about his life and death the past couple of days? How about, "Wes Craven hated children and senior citizens alike. He was also a lousy tipper!" I bet no one has written that. Probably because it's libelous. Anyway, I'm not the biggest Wes Craven fan in the world. Not that I dislike his work, just more like I never got around to watching most of his films. I took him for granted, okay??? Get off my back!

Wow, Everyone Had Bird Flu.
Nicknames are Hard

In 1752, today was the last day of the Julian calendar in Great Britain, Ireland and the British colonies, including those on the East coast of America. Eleven days were skipped to adopt the Gregorian calendar, designed to realign the calendar with equinoxes. Hence the following day was 14 Sep. For more than a century and a half before, following the decree by Pope Gregory XIII, Italy, and three other Catholic countries (Spain, Portugal and Poland) used the Julian calendar for the last time on 4 Oct 1582. France followed, ending Julian calendar use on 9 Dec 1582. Russia did not change until the early 20th century: 31 Jan 1918 was the last Julian date, followed the next day by 14 Feb 1918.

When you’re bored, lonely, or bored and lonely, might we suggest perusing missed connections? Now there’s something you have to remember before you meet one of these fuckers- there’s the type of people so lonely and desperate that they post on missed connections hoping to find that cute girl at Starbucks that they didn’t have the balls to talk to.  That’s one thing.  That’s one level of not so stable.   But what if you’re the person on missed connections HOPING someone is talking about you?  What does that say about your level of desperation?

Wanna Come Back to My Castle Platypus? …I Got Jell-O

Geeks Who Drink at the Platypus Pub tonight was well represented tonight with familiar faces, new players and smooth beer. I was running a little behind tonight, but then instantly reminded of the relaxation one can get by walking down a few steps, being greeted by an excellent bar staff and enjoying a weekly changing tap list full of deliciousness. For dinner I went with something quick, enjoyable and hot…so I Chef Ryan whip up some Irish nachos with tortilla chips and pork. It was my first time having pork and not my last. Adult beverages consumed by yours truly consisted of some Avery IPA and then went big with a handful of New Belgium’s Oscar Worthy Coffee Sour Ale on nitro.

Tuesday Night, Null Taphouse, Epic quizzing. Check check and Check! Geeks Who Drink was once again the ringmaster for sanctioned and unsanctioned bouts of quiz. Long time favorites Rain Delay and Pleather Couches were there joined by Gus & the Fatties and Opportunistic Omnivores for a battle for supremacy. Things got going strong to start the game. Round 1 sees a lot of perfect scores at Null. The jangling of nerves never seems to get these teams down to kick things off. The audio round often sees multiple jokers too but tonight that changed.

I find it interesting when somebody wins a drink prize and they don’t drink. They are in it just for the thrill of winning. Sometimes I just don’t get it. I’m not a competitive person is where the misunderstanding comes from I think. I’m not complaining at all and just like to notice some of society’s quirks. Last night was another packed night. Welcome back WSCU students! I think there will be a new team to break into the top 3 regulars this fall. One team last night I think really wanted the quiz outside. Or they really like the aluminum tables and chairs. Or, we ran out of tables and chairs inside. What ever the case might be, thanks for being proactive and
