Knights of the Cool Kids' Table
Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!

Hear ye, hear ye, Quizzers! It's Friday evening, and I'm sure you're about to start your weekend with a flagon of ale or some roasted meat or some other menu option offered at a Medieval Times historical recreation restaurant, but before you tuck into that food, tuck into this recap of last night's quiz at Pumping Co!   Last night at Pumping Co we featured an audio round where our Quizzers had to identity the celebrity knight or dame, and it got me thinking about knighthood. Namely: Why don't we have an official American equivalent?   I know that being a knight is some sort of

The quiz of quizzes!
TheHypnotoad

It was definitely a Motown inspired evening after listening to Marvin Gaye earlier in the day, I hope everyone was alright with the slow jams. I had my first ever tiebreaker at the Warehouse tonight, and even that wasn't enough to settle it! Round one was full of product placement large and small, but how could any computer company advertise more than Apple? Music round told you to shut yo mouf in a variable number of ways, but I prefer "Shut Up and Dance". The timed round taught me about the apparently very popular "Farmer's Only" dating site and I'm as confused now as I was then. The J.K. Rowling round also reminded us that she HAS written something other than Harry

The Correlation between the Number of Top Buns in The Bar…
Quizmistress SJ

And the Douchtasticity of said bar. I’m not supposed to put the swears in the title, and I’m not quite sure where douche lands on the scale of 0 to swear. So, as I said a million bajillion times last night, we are moving quiz to 7pm for the next several weeks, and the end of quiz last night was a testament to the sound reasoning behind that decision. Kickball teams will be taking over the basement, and there was clearly a direct correlation between the number of top buns worn by overly-makeuped women in workout clothes/dudes who dress like they are still freshman in college to the need to YELL ALL THE THINGS. The graph can be viewed in the images on this page.

Two years into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursdays. Other than trying to fry brains during pub quiz I spend my life snowboarding and frying my own brain studying science at the U. Not too shabby, eh? After moving around to a bunch of different places after high school and college (Portland, Cuba, Chile, NYC, SLC, DC) I'm back in these big beautiful mountains (I'm from here originally)!

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'. Not my real middle name, but it is a nickname that makes me turn my head when called. I promise not to laugh too hard when you say Africa is a country or something equally as outrageous.

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

Great time tonight at the OC in Longmont. We had plenty of teams come out to battle things out and as always, we ultimately had two winners! Outside of everyone who had a lovely time together, of course.   Cecil Should Have Worn Kevlar did better than their namesake by coming in first, while Quiz on Your Face, encountering a serious challenger, had to settle with second place.

1) That I need to buy a new computer (seriously, this one is running on wishes and duct tape) 2) That people are really lacking in knowledge about the former Soviet republics and satellite states 3) That Ben Kingsley's monologue in Round 7 is even better if you hear it as coming from Gandhi in "Gandhi 2: The Revenge" It was a tight contest the whole way, with Summer Fun pulling ahead of Such Trivia Much Fun in the final round due to canny conservation of their joker.

Today I Learned Farmers Only is a Thing
Josh

…True story.  Perhaps it’s due to the fact that I’ve been out of the dating pool for many, many years but I was entirely unaware that there is actually a dating site dedicated to helping you find a “farmer, rancher, cowboy, cowgirl, and or animal lovers” (I thought Animal Lovers had an entirely different type of website).  I suppose this is a useful site for those mid-western farmer types who are stuck out on a plot of land, miles from next farm.  You can only get so lucky in meeting a suitable partner at the local cattle auction, so it stands to reason that a site like this exists.  In fact, I’d have to say I got an overall

Not much else to say about this one, folks. Other than YOU ACCEPTED ME AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR AND TIME LORD Whatever all that means. As willing as I was to yell round 8 to your lovely faces, I'm kind of glad the power came back on because I would have also had to sing in between questions and nobody needed that in their lives. Overall you had some smartypants teams playing, quizzers! But round 8 gave you enough grief that yelling would have compounded your misery tenfold. Somehow everybody got their speed rounds in on time (A TINIEST BAR FIRST) and also every single team stuck around until the bitter end, worried about their tabs and rebooting systems left

Yurp!

Good to be back at Mywz (Welsh spelling) after a week hiatus. Although, that brutally tough round 8 may have had y’all singing a different tune. It was actually the second night in a row at one of my venues that no one scored double digits in R8, which is unheard of. Surprisingly, everybody did mostly ok on the Bulgaria round. Who knew Bulgaria had so many cultural touchstones to ask about? (Well, you guys knew, apparently.) In the future, please look forward to rounds on other minor league countries such as Macau, Belize and The New Democratic Republic of Western Siamistan (not a real place yet). F’real

If a marriage could be described being asked a series of increasingly esoteric questions while your sobriety gradually slips into a hazy memory, we have got one hell of a group marriage taking shape in Scottsville. On another dreary night, many of our usual suspects and a few new folks came together for another lively pub quiz at the James River Brewery. It was a quiz that tested our knowledge of some classic childhood movies, online dating websites, and best of all (especially for the Whomping Willows) all things JK Rowling. It was a

Yeah, this Rock Bottom place has a lot going for it. For example: their beer! I JUST TRIED THEIR BREWED-IN-HOUSE BEER THIS THURSDAY. I know, it was my second time there and I hadn't tried a Rock Bottom brewski yet? What a lunatic! I feel downright horrible for ordering a John Daly during my first Rock Bottom quiz'sperience. It's okay, I know better now. For the record, though, the John Daly was great, too! I would like to formally apologize to Richard Nixon for suggesting people thought he had the face of one who might nuke two-year-old little girls.

Holy crap you guys! Just when I think we've squeezed as many teams as we can into that room for quiz, we turn around and have a quiz with even more teams than last time! I've gotta say that when we have a turnout that big (18 TEAMS PEOPLE!), I get so hyped up. I had so much fun tonight that you have no idea. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did, although I'm not sure that's even possible. It was a bit weird though at times. We're not used to having to share our little sandbox with others. We're a bit spoiled in that sense. There was a private party that had the room booked until quiz time and they kept the party going even past the end of quiz. For the most part they were cool

The night was cool and humid.  The turnout was a little smaller than I had hoped, but we did get rain an hour or so before the quiz.  That probably scared the patio teams away.  And it was the last day of the bar.  I think most of our law students and professors either went out to get really drunk or home to pass out from shear exhaustion.       We got the night started with product placements featuring children, then shut our mouth in French to some music.  After that we figured out the top 10 ways to hook up through dating sites.  I had a shot in round 4 for J K Rowlings birthday and we made fun of Cecil’s killer.
