Gilmore Girls Do Alaska!
Quizmistrix Lalenya

Or rather, Alaska Does Gilmore Girls! What an amazing night!  So many super fans!  And so many quiz virgins!   This quiz certainly separated the casual from the uber Gilmore Girl Geek.  When it was all said and done The Life and Death Brigade pulled off the big win, taking home $165!  Team Awesome was right behind, but they made a big tactical mistake in using their joker too early in Round 7 and had to settle for 2nd. Taking Not Last by just 1 point was Kanga & Roo.  If only Tess had stayed in town for another couple weeks... So, for all of you newbs, we do this quiz

Krampus Kitten
Johnna

Thanks for coming out last night to the ole' GLC! We had some newbies and a few oldies and I think we were all desperately feeling the dog shaped hole left by Lola the Lab and crew who couldn't be there. Fortunately members of Team Ween stepped up and replaced our regular quiz mascot with a Krampus Kitten. And yes, it is just as terrifying as you think it is.  It was a real close game, guys. With the exception of the triumphant Golden Girls, the final standings were determined by mere points. The Golden Girls won by quite a margin, followed by the one man wonder Aluminum Falcon. Just one point behind him was

You Kiss Your Mother With That Mouth?
Quizmistress April the Supreme

After a long day of fighting (unsuccessfully) with the Buffalo Department of Traffic and Parking Violations, I was glad to have an outlet to take out all of my frustrations – that’s where quiz at Dinosaur BBQ comes in! I’m so glad to have seen all of my regulars plus some n00bs, like The Rugrats who prevented me from cussing for the first half of the game. I let everyone let out all of their curse words after they left. I know I needed to. I’ve always heard that the Irish swear a lot. I mean, that accounts for why I swear and drink so much, but I never that the Irish made people swear. Everybody Yell Vagina

Hello Quizzers, It felt really busy Thursday night at the H&H Saloon. People were full of energy and enthusiasm. Almost everyone in the bar played in the quiz!  Reigning champions The Clapping Crabs returned from their week long absence to reclaim their title.  Apparently, Crabs CAN clap! The Graduates a team made up of mostly new quizzers came in second. They had a marine biology major in their pocket that nailed a question about spiny sea creatures. Guys, who knew

That's what my friend Sharif just said to me. He looks like a dumbass, though.GOT EMMMMM!Things we learned at quiz:1. Most people can't spell.2. Frank Sinatra could not have played Taft's inauguration because Frank Sinatra was born 8 years after that date. Also, that's not Frank Sinatra.3. Frank Sinatra? More like Drank Sinatra, amirite!4. They were all called Caesar.5. How can you forget about Ashanti?? COME ON MAN!What if Ja Rule was a tiny dog this whole time?Also, just cuz you're watching tons of porn, doesn't mean everybody else is. But also, yea, they probably are.

The Dark Cloud Over the Horizon
Jacy

I mean, it wasn’t exactly, but I tried my best to not mention the lingering dark cloud looming.  Things for it were happening just down the street, but we have to move on. I drove just a few blocks from it. The XXX premier is something that is going to happen, we have to accept Vin Diesel as the new superstar, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Ha ha ha, I’m watching the coverage now and, oh boy. Sure, the Trump Inauguration was a correct answer, because we mentioned the one big star that agreed to play the event, but I didn’t dwell.

There are many paths in life. And then there's my path. 82 people, 21 teams. $205 dollars on the line. Who would win? No one knows, well I do, because it happened last night and I have the score right next to me. BUT, I need to stretch this out into a full blog post, so stay tuned! The results after this commercial break, as they say.  Gaslight went all out for this event. The Decorations and Founders day punch was perfect! The scores stayed close for the top 10 teams almost all night. Moving the first double point round to round 7 caused a 7-way tie for second place after our first scoring break. With only one point separating 3rd and 2nd

Let's just bypass talking about that whole thing that happened today, and focus on the happy-go-lucky fun times of quiz!!   We had a fun one over at Celtic Club as eight teams joined us for quizzery goodness, spanning subject from musical acts and their inaugurations, a whole round on eleven, and no quiz would be complete without our Random Knowledge round.   After we made it through all eight, here's how the stats shuffled out:

Oh my god. First, thanks so much to everyone who came out last night. We PACKED Fado’s and it was absolutely amazing.   I loved your costumes, sass, and general enthusiasm for all things Gilmore.   I’ve been wanting to do a Gilmore Girls quiz for TWO YEARS now. I started rewatching the show, and because of my non stop facebook statuses, discovered there were quite a few Gilmore Girls fans in the Geeks Who Drink community.   So last night we got to drink martinis and coffee, wear our flannel and baseball caps (seriously, costumes are not easy for a show about normal people but y’all CRUSHED it,) listen to Carole

Boy Are You Going to Kick Yourself
Andrew

During a course of a quiz, you have no idea how things are going to turn out.  Will a question you miss in round one catch up with you down the road?  Sometimes it does.  For one team tonight it certainly did.  After leading most of the night over the usual winners, they ended up losing out by one point.  A single point.  It means that any of the questions that could have gone 50-50 might have helped you out.  Instead here we are.  It was a fun night nonetheless, even though more people were distracted by Trump's impending inauguration and the Capitals game that was playing on TV in the bar.  Whatever, I'll live with competing with a professional

I like to think I'm a wise man. Also a man of the people, but particularly, a wise man. I like to drop truth-bombs on and for the people. Let 'em know what's up. You know.  All this to say, during this week's Hi-Lo contest for $950, I said what were MAYBE the truest words ever spoken: 100% of the teams who lose the Hi-Lo pick one wrong card.   MINDS BLOWN.   But hey, think about it.    Anyway, before all that, we played pub quiz at Fado Irish Pub!

On the Eve of Destruction
Nate Fincher

So I don’t normally get political, but on the day before this dreadful inauguration I just can’t help it. I’m finding it more and more difficult to get in the mood for things as tomorrow draws closer and closer. I’m just waiting for my alarm to go off, but in reality it going to be an air raid siren that I hear. I’ve always wondered what it would have been like during the World Wars to have the communication tech that we’ve got today…well as we’re already seeing in the protests around the country its being both helpful and hurtful. Never before have we had such contact with the whole nation, never before have we had the coverage of cameras

Another night of many teams at Independence, think we've really got something cooking now that the Taco Truck is with us every week at quiz time! Round one we played three for all, though many teams had trouble finding Tammy Duckworth's last name, what a shame. Music round we did Presidential Inaugurations and I had to school everyone on the timeline of the rise of Ricky Martin. During round three I resisted the urge to make pretty much every "WestWorld" joke I could think of. Round four proved that everyone needs to go play Bioshock:Infinite to learn of the wonders of the kinetoscope and what wonders it has to show us. Visual round was full of first ladies and I never

Every four years I get a strange birthday present.  Used to be that it might be the Super Bowl before the season got extended.  Every once in a while it might be MLK day and I get the day off.  But for sure, every four years it's Inauguration Day on my birthday.  This time it's a hell of a thing to absorb while also processing about getting older.  I swear, it's not that I'm turning thirty three and am still not sure what the hell I'm doing.  Nah, it's all on orange butthole mouth.  Definitely.   This quiz, though.   Round Two.  Fucking rub it in.  Toby Keith with that fucking awful song is a thing

Hello my little quiz minions! I had such a great time at quiz this week. I love when new folks come out, or accidentally show up during quiz and decide to play. We had a table of adorable 20 something boys who thought I was HILARIOUS. The best way to get my attention is to laugh at my shitty jokes, and you boys definitely caught my attention. Imagine me doing an almost cartoonish eyebrow waggle right about here. We even had what appeared to be a bachelorette party that was actually totally digging quiz, cheering on their teammates, and generally having a good time. Y'all were a damn breath of fresh air. I'm sure it must seem like a stereotype at this point, but I always brace
