Week 2 and we're already growing - at this rate, by the end of the year we'll have upwards of 50 teams! Which would be impractical! I may be figuring this incorrectly. At any rate, Air D&D celebrated both member Ian's birthday and a sweet first-place finish. There was a tight battle the whole night between last week's champs Such Trivia Much Fun, Sümmer Fün, and best-named team Finding Nemo Dead for second place (SPOILERS: they finished in that exact order). Also guys I checked and there has never been a Senator Potatohead. Wikipedia wouldn't lie.

As we celebrate our nation's independence this weekend, so too did we celebrate and ponder all things 'MURICA at Mrs. Murphy & Sons during our most recent quiz.  We learned who was born on the Forth of July (it wasn't Tom Cruise), and speaking of birthdays, Carly Simon just turned 70 - thus making her older than Murica's not-so-favorite past-time: NASCAR.  And speaking of races... Fortuitous Druid Rose rode like Paul Revere on opiates to a first place showing, while the New Originals took second and made it known they likely watch way too much television.  A fun, if not patriotic, time was had

I Am A Real American
Cousin Chet

America, the greatest country on Earth. Maybe I’m being hyperbolic, maybe I’m feeling optimistic about what’s going on. Maybe I’m a little drunk on a Friday afternoon. But America is the greatest country on Earth. And here’s a bunch of reasons why! We finally legalized Marriage Equality! Yes any two consenting adults who love each other can now get married. And that’s great. The best thing is that despite what some people prophesied, heterosexual marriages didn’t immediately crumble with the decision. You can still be a straight couple who’s married and the gay couples who are getting married don’t affect your marriage at all. So,

The Most American Thing To Ever America
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

Happy 4th of July weekend! I'm spending mine at a Korean spa.  FREEDOM!   We had a damn right reserved night with 22 teams in attendance.  22 teams who all, apparently, have the same favorite band, Jefferson Starship.  You learn something new every day.   Also, happy birthday, Carly Simon, who recently turned 70 years old.  And she still looks AMAZING.  And sounds great.  And is still in her prime and oh god I'm 36 and my life is over :( We learned a whole lot more about 4th of July babies in round 4 and then celebrated our Greek brothers and sisters in round 5.   Round 6 was all about

Are belong to Geeks Who Drink! If things keep going like this, we will just completely take over Lincoln Square Lanes. 19 teams gathered this week and it was a PARTY. After several twists and turns, jumps ahead, and some well-used Jokers, we ended up with three newbie teams on the podium. Winners Soccer Hooligans didn’t score  below 7 on a single round, while White People, Am I Right? and Crackers & Knives had to resort to a tiebreaker for 2nd place. White People were, in fact, right and left with the $15 LSL gift certificate. Round 6 was our big stumper this week, with an average score under 4 points. But

Round 1: I was personally incredibly impressed to read that Pete Best does not hold any grudges against his old band mates, alive or dead. Given the fact that the Beatles as a band are synonymous with “acrimonious un-coupling” the world over, not to mention Best’s career the dictionary definition of “raw deal.” If any musician got the short end of the stick and deserves to complain about injustice until the end of time, it is Pete. Wow. Just plain wow. That is maturity in the best possible sense of the word. In all seriousness,

You Just Essed The Dees
Carlos

I know, I know. You hate me know due to your love for Daft Punk. Featuring Pharrell. But now we laugh. We laugh so much. Shall we recap our quiz? First I had a shot of Jameson and a Fire Eagle then asked you questions. Then I had another shot of Jameson and asked you a few more questions. Then I ran out of Fire Eagle after a bit and thought it would be prudent to re-up both the beer and the Jameson. So I got both! Then we finished quiz with minimal drama and I got to see some dogs! Perfect, right? But on the not-down-low at all, please check out Austin's Habibi. They give you a free delicious gyro if you write a Yelp review about them.

Back to the stage! Great Scott it was a fun time being with you lot again up there! Let's recap our dope baller fleek quiz! Firstly we mulled over the news and the exact phrasing of the misanthropic curmudgeons who stood in opposition to freedom, then we talked about things I consider to be polar opposites in rounds 2 and 3- being mobile and Ben & Jerry's. Kudos to the Americone Dream, though. Shit's on point. Round 4 made me want even MORE shrimp than I had had that day, and your visual round made you appreciate more people like Justin Chancellor and assorted van Zan(d)ts. Then we took ourselves down a peg by putting our independence in comparison with

 Happy Independence day quizzers! We had a great quiz this week with a lot of familiar faces making their way back again. Love seeing so many teams coming each week and really building some great rivalries. We also need to give a huge shout out to our amazing venue, World of Beer, those new mist fans make the patio an oasis on hot Austin evenings.   All of the teams came out of the gates hot in Round 1, And something was its Name-O a round all ending in INGO. Everyone really crushed it and we got to hear my wonderful impression of Australians saying a dingo ate their baby. Round 2 was our audio

Round 7 was all about show spoilers and a couple people decided the quiz was more important than possibly getting a beloved show ruined. I was sorry about the people who it did happen to. Especially the game of thrones spoiler. Only because you've gone this long without hearing about it. Thats impressive. Thats why you should always watch the shows that are really popular and everyone tells you to watch. Also to the guy who had House of cards ruined for him, how are you that far behind? Most people binge watch that shit. A few things always happens when a team brings their parents to quiz. 1. Their team name will be vaguely parent themed (points though if your team name is normally

Howdy quizzers! There were even more teams this week. Color me surprised.   It seems like some of the questions got a little obscure for some of y’all. I did find it really amusing that we had a round called “Crustacean Nation” while everyone was enjoying their crab legs. Also, I got to read off team names like Team Penis and My New Fuckin’ Haircut.  Except I guess, I also got some fun names like Quiz Me Real Good and Dorito Dust, so maybe it evens out.   Dorito Dust finished the night solidly in first place, while Let’s

I was back at the New Heights Grill for the second week in a row, and there were almost twice as many teams as last week. And we had twice as much fun because of it!The INGO round kicked things off, and the highlight for me was that instead of guessing anything ending in "INGO" Sea Slug just wrote "SPORTS!" for the Trey Wingo question. Also I got to say "maybe a dingo ate your baby" in a terrible Austrailian accent. Good stuff!You guys did really well on the punk/nu-metal covers of pop songs. No amount of growling can keep you away from your Taylor Swift!In the Carly Simon round you had a 50/50 chance of getting each question right. Most teams would have

And the meek shall inherit the earth...

The title of today's blog comes from the epic musical masterpiece knows as 2112; the absolute epitome of what a musical concept album should be. 2112 tells the story of a man who discovers an ancient guitar and learns to play his own music in a dystopian society. Our hero decides to present his mastery to the priests of the Temples, who angrily destroy it, and curse him for discovering something that caused the destruction of the previous civilization. Why am I rambling on like some kind of possessed music nerd? Well, because A) it’s what I usually do, and B) because hosting quiz last night at PUMPING CO. totally opened up my eyes to how many people

WOWZA this was a rockin' quiz! A packed house with 14 teams on 4th of July weekend?! You must really love me! Well I love you too, quizlettes. I love you too. Here's what you missed if you're the worst and you didn't make it. R1: And Something Was His Name-O. In this round each answer ended with “-ingo.” Easy enough, right? Average Score: 5.9 High Score: 8 R2: Needs More Growling! This was a sound round of punk and u-metal covers, you had to give me the original artist and title. These songs sound a lot worse this way. Average Score: 9.75 High Score” 16 R3: Fuck It! We'll just call it 'You Probably Think This Round is About You.”

The night started out with 6 teams even though the bar was full of ladies going to see Magic Mike.  We fought through the crowd noise and we even had some of the movie goer join in our little pub quiz.  We started with the name-o round and gave out some patriotic Koozies.  Then we did some slam dancing to Celine Dion and had fun with Carly Simon.  We had more Independence Day fun and shit in our own private Idaho.  Rounds 7 & 8 are fuzzy, we had so many people in the bar, one group of stripper enthusiasts getting out of a movie and another waiting to get their magic on.  I

Bees, Cows, Dogs…oh my!
Mark

Let’s face it, Santa Fe is owned and operated by annoying dog owners that insist on bringing their prized canine everywhere.  Can my dog come into the grocery store? Yes! Gym? Yes! Burn unit? Yes! What about the Center for People with Dog Allergies? Yes, bring him on in!   That being said, we learned that in addition to bees and cattle, dogs are responsible for the highest number of animal related US deaths every year. My main concern is that there are murderous cows out there, supposedly just grazing, when in fact they are plotting acts of terrorism.   Another interesting fact is that Geeks don’t like the rain. It
