The One With Quizzards, Presidents, Sex Tapes, and Feldman Quizzing in Pants. I'm Not Drunk Enough For This
WWKD?

As I drive home on the snow slick streets, enjoying the fickle mistress that is northeastern Ohio weather, I wonder what my life would be like if fate had never brought us together. Where would I be if I was not at Jilly’s Music Room on Tuesday nights? What would I be doing? What would you be doing? Who would be reciting you questions? Who would be riddling your brain? Would you like them as much as you like me? Would they be angry and surly, or kind and gentle? Would they be awkward? Would you be awkward? And seriously, what would I be doing? I really don't know. I do not have many interests, or many past times. I would probably just be going up to strangers on the

Ecstatically apathetic and apathetically ambitious. Sarcastic, relentless,delusional, and better than you. A lawyer for the people, assuming the people can't hire a lawyer. Between arguing with "the law", playing random video games, watching too much tv, and not going to the gym enough, I now quiz bar patrons. Because, honestly, if anything is going to drive you to drink quicker than me, holding a microphone, staring at you awkwardly and asking questions, I haven't discovered it yet. I may not be as funny as I think I am, but I tend to amuse myself, and that's what counts, right? Wait, that's not what counts? Crap. I guess that explains a lot. Follow me on Twitter @WWKD Full disclosure, I barely use Twitter.

Life in the Fast Lane
RobertLove

Over the weekend I was invited to a friend's family's cabin to get in some time on the slopes. While I waffled a little on whether or not to go, I did finally decide to make the trip. I am really glad I did. Although it was exhausting, the trip was a blast. We left Norman about 4:30 pm on Friday and drove out to the cabin. That's about a nine hour drive. Long way to go, but the skiing was well worth it. We got up on Saturday, loaded up and headed to the the slopes of Taos Ski Valley to get our fill of the good snow that NM had received this year. It had been cold and had snowed recently so there was not a lot of ice and a lot of good packed powder. Spent the day skiing with only one

Thanks for coming out to our Mardi Gras quiz last night! By that I mean it was Mardi Gras and you made bad puns about it. That's all I ask of you really, and you keep coming through. We have a very healthy relationship. Aside from all the drinking, of course. But I had red wine last night... so we're doing fucking great. You guys were really on with the team names last night. I had to lean towards one of my mortal weaknesses- CAKE- when awarding the best team name. I know Michael is to blame, and I shouldn't reward him, but hey! This prize is anonymous! However, if I somehow made him worse, I apologize to everyone. Keep the cake jokes coming. Next

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.

Snap Back to Reality
Vaughn

First drink of the night went to Trumpty Dumpty.  Some of the other noteworthy names included; Slaying Like Hot Sauce and Team Wadsworth. Last night's Pub Quiz was a bit of a throwback, despite a slow night at the Heights Tavern we were still graced with the presence of five great teams.  As long as I’m not talking to myself I’m quite happy but it did make me miss our night of “Too Many Teams”.  In a weirdly missed opportunity Fat Tuesday and Pub Quiz collided and neither gave a damn.  I was hoping for at least “Iko Iko” in the audio round but I guess I’ll have

The Color Maeuve Makes Me Want to Be Colorblind
DanielCostie

We had a salty crowd here tonight at The Glenn. They didn’t even give me credit for making the best Round 3 powerpoint that they had ever seen. So aesthetic, so artistic, so minimalist. No love. But they did loved giving me the business end about how you pronounce the color ‘maeuve.’ And I may have just spelled it wrong just now. But guess who gives a shit. No one typing right now! I even went to the inter webs to learn me how to pronounce it but it did not pay off apparently. I even saw the color. Such a worthless color….   So some things switched up in our rankings this evening. It shifted frequently as well. A testament, perhaps, of the strategic-ness

Fat Bronco Tuesday
Kent

What a strange few weeks it has been. Last week we had no quiz because a shit ton of snow fell from the sky and ruined the world. Then I watched some of the new X-Files and listened to 28 episodes of a podcast called The Worst Idea of All Time where two guys from New Zealand watch the move Grown Ups 2 (with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Kevin James) once a week for 52 weeks and talk about how much they hate it. Then I bought a cord of firewood, hung some shelves in a closet, and watched the movie Ant Man on Amazon.  The local professional football

Stay FAR AWAY From Alligator Rock
Brittany "Michael Bay" St. Julien

Something in my gut is telling me that maaaaybe I should be apologizing for, oh I don't know, traumatizing an entire theater full of people? Well, that is simply not going to happen, dear quizzers! How about this: I pledge to *actually* screen films before unleashing them upon your poor, memory-seared eyeballs. I think you're going to find the change to your liking, but eventually you'll yearn for the old days of pure, uncut crazy ass shit happening on the big screen. After all, what is a pub quiz without a little ritual murder, right? Right guys? Hey, where are you going? When we saw Leia plant the galaxy's most uncomfortable
[ ...more... ]

Friends call me Michael Bay because I love action and make a lot of sound effects with my mouth.

Well, nobody calls me that, really. But they should for the above reasons.

If I had to rank my top 3 books, it'd look something like:

1)Plato- The Republic
2)Heinlein- Stranger in a Strange Land
3)Silverman- The Bedwetter

Or something.

Alas, Poor Screech. I Knew Him, Zac, A Fellow Of Infinite Jest
Dr. Rex N.F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Tuesday’s quiz brought some of the things I love most about the Geeks Who Drink quiz more than any other pub quiz you may be unfortunate enough to stumble across. It’s America, mofos, so let’s bullet point it! Bam Bam:    Round Written By Your Quizmaster:    Round one was You’re Watching It Wrong. I gave you the year of a movie’s release and then described that movie if its plot were reversed. For example, “2013: After recovering from AIDS, a Texan distances himself from his transgender friends, stops selling drugs, and embraces promiscuity, rodeos, and assholery,” was the clue, or

GWD loves poop potatoes
RyanKennemur

I've only been a quizmaster for a short time, but it seems that patterns start to present themselves the further we go along. So far, I've picked up that the folks who write the rounds have some topics they really like, such as Taylor Swift, the Hamilton musical and The Martian - particularly the poop potato thing. What's interesting to me is that the more these topics come up, the more callbacks I see from our players. The first time I read a question involving The Martian, the very next week we had a team name called Poop Potato. Players continually write down "poop potato" when they don't know the answer. It makes me feel like I'm in some lifelong pub quiz that will fuel itself

Quizzing is Hard, But We Did It
Stefanie

Hello quizzers! Hope you are all recuperating well today. Last night was a boreal of fun. See what I did there? It was also Fat Tuesday, which brought out the non-quizzing type of individuals. I know, they suck, but what can we do? Tell them politely to STFU and move on with our lives. Which is exactly what I tried to do, but, as well all know, drunk people don't care about me or you or anything. So we worked around it, and it was fine, and y'all were fine, and everything was FINE. Moving along. Harder quiz than normal, I thought. Scores reflect that. Especially in rounds 7 and 8. While I (and you guys) enjoyed the concept of round 7, it was

Well hi there, thanks for stopping by.

You look lovely today.

My name's Stefanie, I'm from Dallas originally and have been hanging out in Houston for three years now and love this giant, beautiful city and all it has to offer. 

I went to Texas State University and hung out for a while in Austin, so I guess you could say I get around.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and lying about things I enjoy.

Feel free to bring me presents, buy me beers, and tell me I'm pretty.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler - It's Mardi Gras!
Cap'n Brendan

That's right, kids - LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL! Ok technically last night was Mardi Gras, but since that was what I planned to write about and then slacked off until today I’m going to pretend it’s not already Ash Wednesday. So here’s what that means: It's your last chance to have a good time before you start repenting and giving up things you love for Lent. We’re down to our final hours to decide what we want to give up for Lent this year. It better not be quiz. SHOW ME YOUR BOOBS! You should eat some Cajun food right now. Go find a Po'Boy. You won't regret it. Ok, I've decided. I'm giving up giving something up

No rulessssss WOOO HOOOOOOOOO
KatieDutton

Helloooooo Blogosphere!! The quiz this week was chock full of regulars - so chock full, in fact, that this bubbly blonde Quizmistress was able to skip her opening shpeal entirely and dive right into the good stuff. NO RULES NECESSARY WAAAHOOOOOOOO!!!!! We're rebels up in this joint.  Things were lovely this evening, as always. There was a hearty debate about Shakespeare, talk of Bayside, and a bunch of backwards movie synopses. A special 16-point round 7 added a fun twist, and the suspense kept building. In the end, it came down to a tie between two warring teams. New Hampshire Cous Cous went toe to toe with Live Gay or Die Hard in a tiebreaker for first.

Low Expectations, Liberal Libations Hi, my name's Ben and I'm a quizmaster.

Ultimately, the spread between first and second place was only 2 points. Despite their noted lack of self-confidence, Low Expectations managed to take home the gold! Not only that, they managed to nab every bonus pint of the night,

Snow Day!
Elephant Gangsta Tooth

Welcome back quizzers!  I was so sad that we had to miss each other last week!  Buffalo Rose had a partial snow day, so we followed suit!  When I moved to Colorado, I was under the impression that there wasn't really a whole lot of snow days here.  My first winter/spring here (2013), I remember it snowed like 8 inches/week in April, and each time it happened, I asked my husband if he was getting a snow day.  He just laughed and said "No, that's

My name is Alison (aka Elephant Gangster Tooth) and I come from the far land of New Mexico and moved to Denver in 2013. I geek out when it comes to video games and fitness, which contradict each other nicely. I recently got married and sold my soul to my husband Jeff in exchange for an endless supply for Starbursts.
