Sup nerds. Nikki left Lumpy's in my care last night, so I did my best not to let her down! You five teams that showed up are beautiful people. And now I've quizzed for some of you twice this week! Double nerds. The Guesstapo continued their streak with the win, and Dying Alone, Eaten By Cats came in second. Geek Bowl is soon, so I'm glad you guys did well! Come back next week for Nikki's triumphant return, and much thanks to Lumpy's for putting up with me this week!!

I'm Going Solo!
R-Kenny

Who needs a band? Or a scorekeeper? Or any of that non-sense. It's time to release a solo album that no one cares about. I'll record a bunch of songs that sound kind of like shitty versions of the ones we did as a band and we'll all think of what could have been. Let's get these things out of the way. The White Stripes > Jack White. No Doubt > Gwen Stefani. The Beatles > John Lennon, George Harrison or Paul Mccartney.  In our new feature, weekly, I'll give everyone some pointers for making sure they're improving their quiz game. Today's tip? Awards nominees. Oscars, Golden Globes, Tonys, Emmys and Grammys. You should probably keep an eye on those nominations

Naked and Hungry
Kirsten

I love subbing at The Cube because it never fails to sate my appetite for delicious barbecue.  Moving from North Carolina meant a serious up tick in green chile consumption (praise be) but I’ve missed those smokey meats covered in tang and spice.  On that note, pulled pork is meat spaghetti.  How has this not been addressed by the masses, yet? Excluding a pretty poor performance identifying Hollywood's best naked scenes, the competition was almost as good as the food last night.  Totes Stoats, Boogers 4 Brains and Edgar Allan Poe-Kemon: The Evening Staryu were neck and neck for most of the evening,

At the tender age of seven, Kirsten sat crying under the coat rack in Mrs. Johnston's second grade classroom.  She had misspelled "receive" and learned the harsh lesson that it was possible to get an answer wrong. Fifteen years later, that douchebag is your Geeks quizmaster.  A job that feeds her know-it-all soul.

Kobalt Blue Persuasion
Tyberius

Greetings and Salutations! Last night was the inaugural outing of Geeks Who Drink at Kobalt. While it can be a little tricky finding as its in the center of the complex, it’s well worth the journey. Kobalt has a fantastic look, great drink specials, and best of all its own sequined stage. Not to mention a wireless audio set up that allows me to walk amongst you while quizzing. Looking forward to some very intimate quiz times, oh yeah baby, yeah. Last night was a close one, with A-Sexually Active duking it out with Beef Curtains & Cheese Wiz for the number 1 spot. But in the end due to their superior knowledge of queens, sketch comedy,

Why, hello there. Since you've arrived here, you must clearly be a person of class and distiction. Pour yourself some brandy and have a seat. As we are both obviously very important and busy people I will not waste your time and instead hit you with a series of FACTS;

I share names with two William Shatner characters.

I am so wizard, I am in fact J.K. Ballin'.

You could call me a "bad boy" in that I am in equal measures both immature and incompetent.

My career goals are to be a Crazy Black Wizard in the style of Cornell West or George Clinton. Getting paid to travel the land and speak in mystical ghetto riddles.

I'm currently hosting at Kobalt.

You Didn't Stand a Chance
Ptera Dactyl

I can’t for the life of me remember your name right now, but girl from Ray, the Bisexual Navajo Across the Hall is a BEAST at the tie-breaker rounds. If you’re up against her, you can just absolutely forget about taking home that first place. She knows way too much for one person. But congrats to her for taking her team to victory! Speaking of which, please feel free to find Ray and let him know that I am interested if he’s single ;-) I love that I’ve been hosting for long enough to have “old faces” show up! Laura and Paul were quizzers from my VERY FIRST BAR (I’ve hosted six thus far)

Then the son, Kronos, from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father's members and cast them away to fall behind him...and a white foam spread around them from the immortal flesh...and came forth an awful and lovely goddess, and grass grew up about her beneath her shapely feet. Her gods and men call Ptera Dactyl

Back in the House
Dustin

I have returned! Big thanks to my Quiz Master Colleague Amanda for filling in for me last week as I attended last Thursday's Blazer game in which....the home team lost. Boooo. But I ALSO was at last Tuesday's Blazer game where they not only won but I got to be on the court for the national anthem and the starting line ups. So I have a picture of myself and starting center Mason Plumlee that I will happily humblebrag about if anyone is interested. Anyhow, holy cow you nerds came out in force this Thursday. Big ups to Max and Cameron working like crazy at the Schmizza Pub and Grub trying to keep you all fed and beered through out the evening. Lots of familiar faces and brand new ones

This Human Here

Tonight was the inaugural night of Geeking+Drinking at Lincoln Park's Barn and Company. I'd never been to this venue before, but now man am I glad it's mine. ONLY THURSDAY VENUE GUYS. A VENUE VISITED BY LOTS OF VERY ATTRACTIVE PEOPLE. AND I GET TO CALL ALL OF THEM MINE. OK, not really in those many words, but I'll dream and I'll wish and I'll blog. Fullerton is my favorite CTA stop, and so that's what had me originally excited about this venue. But there's so many other reasons. The manager, TJ, is a star. The servers are great. The food is extraordinary. I get to do a video round. The kids playing had even, some of them, played quiz before, and what a great turn-out. I'm so

Viva Las Vegas!
Major Tom

Twice a year, teachers have parent-teacher conferences. Last night was that night. As if I wasn't a busy enough dude, I had to do the Blog from my other venue after Quiz Wednesday night, then sleep a little, then go to work. After work, I had to stay to meet with parents until the last possible moment before I had to haul ass all the way across town to the Crown for Quiz again. I could not stay awake to do this Blog last night after Quiz, so I'm sitting here after work writing it now. No big deal, right? Well, normally no, but this time, I am about to leave to drive up to Vegas. Black Sabbath is playing, and the way things have been going with older rock stars recently, I figured I had to

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Run To The Hills
Zachary

Last night's quiz saw a domination by President Obama Knows Exactly What He's Doing x 4. From very early on, it was clear they were game to lead the pack. The one hiccup they encountered came about when they unfairly ruined the bonus question, then went on take the bonus. I am a forgiving quizmaster, but I now realize that this may have been unfair to the other contestants.  All in all, the night was a different vibe. The teams were very interactive and I was game for the conversation.  Also, we learned that Andy, the greatest bartender there is, LOVES Iron Maiden. I don't blame him. Another successful week in Park Slope!

DAs win! DAs win!
Philopher

There have been many famous upsets. "The Miracle on Ice" in 1980, when the US Olympic hockey team beat the Soviets. Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson for the world title. The 1-2-3 Kid hitting the moonsault and pinning Razor Ramon on Monday Night Raw. But last night at The Rooftop, I saw something I never thought I would see. The only team that has been there every Thursday night since I started thi quiz way back in January, The D.A.'s (aka The Dumbasses) won first place! It was a hard fought victory, where they defeated not one, not two, not thr..wait, it was two. Two other teams. Neither the DAs or Pack

Hey there quizzers, Thanks for coming out in the frigid cold last night! To give you warm, fuzzy thoughts, I played you songs from (or inspired by) Wet Hot American Summer. Curiously...this came in handy for round 6’s bonus question. Hmmmmm….funny how that works! Last night we learned: No one knows the Bay City Rollers, and that’s ok. Also… choosing a random number and having you guess it in order to give away that extra bonus prize… does not work. Thanks

I Have to Return Some Videotapes…To the Bar
Jake

Hey Campers!   We had ourselves a good amount of snow yesterday but that didn’t stop 13 teams from showing up! I’m so proud.   Round 1 had one word for the title: “Duh”. It was a round on obvious answers, some of which were so obvious they were elusive…   Round 2, our first audio round, we asked our teams to name either the solo artist or the original band for one point, and the name of the song for the second point. Apparently no one has ever heard of Rod Stewart’s band Faces before. I’m like 80% sure they don’t exist.   We had 3 teams joker round 2, giving

AB Baby

Thank you so much for coming out to quiz at Warehouse Saloon last night! It was great to be back again. I especially enjoyed when one of our quizzers made a Judaism joke. See, I phrase it that way because when you say "Jew joke" it immediately conjures terrible jokes that are crass and racist and not funny. Equally common are jokes about Jewish culture, delivered by Jewish people, that are so lame that they make you cringe. Rabbi jokes. A Judaism joke, however, when it's well executed, is delightful. In this one, there was a discussion about some lengthy piece of literature or something and a quizzer announced "well I'm Jewish so I only read the first half." I laughed. :)I also thoroughly

Hello again and welcome back to another blog from Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz in Tukwila at Virtual Sports.  This is only our third one and we've already started to have regular teams and we've added a couple of teams every week so far!  That is really good news.  We have a little kink with the audio for the video round 7 but I'm going early next week and meeting with their AV guy to get it sorted out.  Have you seen the control room for this place?  It's crazy.  It looks like the one from "War Games".  Not only can you play laser tag with super high end equipment, but now that guns can be mounted with

Great Quiz or GREATEST QUIZ?
Rev. Lindsay

Dudes. Dudettes. Non-binaries. Romans. Countrypeople. Other overused intros. Hello.   I just got back from seeing Deadpool.  It is so choice.  If you have the means, I highly recommend it.   If you’ve seen it, you’ll know why that’s funny.  After you see it, you’ll know.  And if you don’t get it… well, come and see me after class.   We had a freebie round called DUH, which should have ensured an easy eight points for everyone but we only had one team pull it off.  An audio round where we narrowed the artists down to two options for each question.  A 50/50

Lindsay enjoys writing bios for other people much more than for herself, and she really hates people (herself included) who speak in the third person.

If A Super Bowl Occurs Without The Seahawks, Did It Really Happen?
ChristopherRounsville

I’m not the biggest football fan, though it’s hard to not get caught up in the excitement of your home town team playing well. After the ‘hawks made back to back Super Bowls while simultaneously unearthing hordes of hidden fans across the nation (which is precisely where then the term ‘bandwagoners’ comes to mind, not that there’s anything wrong with that) the end of this season was the moment a lot of people dropped football all together and begrudgingly started looking at the Mariner’s hopes this year. ‘Hope’ is about all that team has this year, though their reported over/under is 83 wins, and while I do always enjoy a surprise, let’s
