I, For One, Welcome Our Yellow and Black Color Schemed Overlords
Troy D.

So, tonight, we had a full round on Amazon - who, if you don't know, is a company that sells things to people on the Internet. They also produce TV programs, deliver groceries, own about 64% of the property in the city of Seattle, and are secretly watching me as I type this blog post. I finally took the plunge last year and ordered Amazon Prime, after years of not doing so, and I have to say - now - I get it. There's nothing like being able to order a toaster at 30% off and have it arrive two days later with no shipping fee. It's pretty sweet. Did I mention they're probably watching me type this blog post? Oh, good. On to quiz, with 5 teams - minus the two (!!) teams

Heavy Dew Cannot Stop Our Quiz!
Bersonality

Hey there, My Saturday Night Pub Quiz Players! Is it me, or does it seem that when it rains here in Vegas, somehow most people seem to forget how to drive? Admittedly, I grew up in a far more harrowing part of the country, weather-wise (Wisconsin). That being written, on the way to out to our pub quiz, I had to honk my horn to get people moving at a green light 3 times and had 4 different vehicles on the highway with their turn signals on with no intention of turning or changing lanes, including a semi. Luckily, I have loud music in my car to combat the slight elevation in road rage I get when these things happen. Anyway…we had a surprisingly good turnout for our quiz

I am a husband to Emliy and a father to Sadie. Two of the best things I've ever been able to say about myself. I'm a living, breathing IMDB. Pretty good with TV and music info too. When it comes to these things, I have impeccable taste, so I'm a snob about it; both film and music. I am a quizmaster with Geeks Who Drink. I host 3 pub quizzes per week. If you are ever in Vegas, you should come to one. They're fun and you can win stuff!

Weed is NOT a Commodity......or is it?
QM Conrad S

Guys. Guys. GUYS!! Tonight was a lot of fun. But I’m tired. Like really tired. We had tremendous turnout with 12 teams, and I’d say an average team size of about 4.5 people. That puts my estimate at about 54 quizzers tonight. That is a lot of people playing quiz! I hope we can keep it rolling into next week with this turnout! It is great to see that in just a few months we’ve gone from a sleepy little quiz (think 3am jazz lounge) to something on the SC-bar rotation of must-see activities (think Saturday night Vegas club). Maybe that analogy is a little heavy handed? Maybe? Maybe not! I was very excited to rock my Geeks Who Drink t-shirt for the first time. I’ve

My geek-dom started at a young age with an (un)healthy fascination with Star Wars. That was the beginning of the end. In middle school, I was a member of the group of kids that actually played AD&D in the library during lunch. Current obsessions include Star Wars (still), Game of Thrones, John Williams and politics. I'm local to South Orange County: I grew up in San Clemente and now live in San Juan Capistrano with my wife (Erin) and son (Gavin). Where you can find me: Saturday- Left Coast Brewery at 7pm. Occasionally subbing other SoCal quizes. You might just get lucky.

Christy

My dad is actually pretty on top of things. He definitely knows more about current events than I do, though that's partly because he watches Fox News and then rants angrily about how terrible it is. (This is a habit my mom and I have both tried to talk him out of, to no avail.) He would've known the meanings of all the Words of the Year from our Round Four with no problem, though the round itself was still plenty amusing -- if tricky. Speaking of modern trends, we also had a round on Amazon, which is probably going to be controlling every part of our lives within a decade or so. Every time people talk about their delivery drones I just imagine shooting them down with a slingshot to get a free

And the Award for the Worst Snack Food Goes to...
Coco

...Combos! Those things are pretty much the worst. Like, I know the ladies in Daddy Issues have a love affair with fake cheese, but those things are gross.  Anyhow. Last night's quiz was a grand ol' time, complete with bad spelling, young Donald Rumsfeld and Schubert! (It may be awhile before the teams forgive me for that one.) My personal favorite round has to be R7, where my affinity for commercials and snack food jingles absolutely came in handy. And, it seems, the teams are familiar with them, too, because they did exceptionally well on that round.  As for the scores - Punch Face Champions ran

You guys are the best! You know that right? You're all so dang helpful! And it was super PACKED! I'm pretty sure there were even a couple of people that were standing during quiz.     In more adventures of Reba the Cat, turns out she has a heart murmur. It's grade 3 of 6. Apparently hear murmurs aren't normal in cats. Unlike dogs or humans in which they are often benign, something is causing it. So next step will be an ultrasound or echocardiogram. Good times. And she must have heard me typing about her because now she wants to lay on my chest which makes blogging difficult.   It was so packed, money went to the

Keith

We had a high scoring game last night. Lots of great teams got perfect scores in several rounds. There were also a number of jokers on perfect rounds. The one round most teams seemed to dislike was the round on Franz Schubert. For the most part that wasn't your best topic, but it's OK! You're still awesome in my heart. Our third place winner last night was Harry's Beavers. We gave away second to Quizzy Goodness. Our top honors went to Gone With the Flynn.

The Simple Life
Renerdssance Man

When people ask why I don’t do a lot of outdoorsy things like hiking or camping or whatnot, I usually tell them that I was an indoor kid. This is still mostly true. However, for the past week most of my free time has been taken up by tending a farm. I started playing Stardew Valley. I’ve made my way through almost three seasons and am about to start my first winter. There’s a surprising amount of game in this game, too. Just a huge number of systems to interact with. Perhaps my quick and merciless addiction to this game is because my real life is so busy and complicated? And what better escape than to a game where the main character is dissatisfied

The junk food and fast food options from last night's Round 7. Ranked.   8. Twinkie - Inedible. Not filling. Fucking not food. 7. Domino's Pizza - If it's not a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut, my interest level is zero. 6. Pringles - Uninspiring. 5. Cheetos - Ditto. 4. Taco Bell - My order at the Gainesville Taco Bell at 3am was literally never correct. I wonder why? 3. Kit Kat - See reason for Pringles. 2. Pop Tarts - Love the traditional strawberry and blueberry.

Never thought I'd see the day, but now that we're here......, Bernie would've won. Mothership dethroned the reigning bar champs and The Leftovers were their runner-ups.

Boy, it seemed like every Nirvana song known to man came up during our Round 2 answers this week. "Come As You Are", "In Bloom", "Smells Like Teen Spirit"... all kinds of great songs that aren't "All Apologies"! Always a good time at our weekly Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Fado Irish Pub! We discussed things with the letters "a-r-t" in them, songs about the deadly sins, actors who shared a common role, Netflix shows and Antarctica, Franz Schubert (FRANZ SCHUBERT!), junk food and fast food commercials, and random knowledge!   In the end, Aaron Rodgers' Dysfunctional Family came in third, out

Aria is! Ah yes, we challenged ourselves to think out of the Italian-named casino box this week at our weekly Nicolo's Pizza pub quiz, brought to you by Geeks Who Drink. I was wired again -- no wireless setup -- but the action was still off the chain. As the kids say. I think. Do the kids say that? We discussed countries in the Americas, random songs and artists (I love Chicago, and I don't know "Will You Still Love Me?"... don't feel bad), people who coincided on the earth, films set in Las Vegas, the Roman festival that may've inspired Valentine's Day, and our requisite random knowledge.   In the end, Get Schwifty
