How You Remind Me of Friday
Control Freakonomics

So last night I made the grave mistake of trying to antagonize someone through terrible music choices. This was a terrible miscalculation on my part that neglected to include the fact that she suffers through a teenage daughter every day, and anything I threw her direction would be like pebbles against the hull of the Titanic. We made it through an entire Nickelback song and it only made her stronger. After half of "Friday" by Rebecca Black, I realized that I was inflicting more pain upon myself than I was her and gave up, admitting my defeat, and shifting over to a breath of fresh air in Jurassic 5. Let that be a lesson learned to all of you, that anyone who watches the Big Bang Theory by

Mike was a faithful quizzer for almost three years who finally fell victim to the siren call of becoming a quizmaster.  Translation: Getting paid to eat, drink, and joke at the expense of others was simply too much to resist.  Also, talking about himself in the third person is a major turn-on.

At first glance Mike probably qualify as more drink than geek, but he'll put his nerd street cred up against anyone brave enough to accept the challenge.  We're talking played World of Warcraft at a "WORLD CLASS" level here, people.  

There is, however, a soft spot reserved in his heart for good beer, bad puns, and obscure references so if you have any one of these to spare, come down to Dry Dock and get your quiz on!

Nothing Exists Without it's Opposite
Vaughn

21 teams showed up this Wednesday to try their hands at Pub Quiz.  It’s always interesting when you have an attentive crowd and a birthday party shows up.  You would think by having a microphone and at least 10 speakers piping your voice that would make it easier to be the center of attention but NOPE.  I appreciate all the cool people who came out with the goal of doing trivia and to those who didn’t but still tried their hand you’re awesome also. Thanks Mike for letting me sub in for you again.  It’s always great to hang out with the crowd at Finnerty’s and I look forward to having the pleasure again

Opening Night!
Zachary

It was a great crowd for the first trivia night at Schimanski in Williamsburg. It was great to see the geeks and the drinks find a new place to test their trivia prowess. In my time as a quizmaster, this was one of the tougher challenges I've seen, but our players were up to the challenge. My favorite team name of the night went to Captain Geech & The Shrimp Shack Shooters, who took third place. However, true to their name, the Skillz That Kill vanquished the competition leading from wire to wire. Overall, the crowd was raucous and interactive throughout the night and I got to host the quiz from a DJ booth, which is

Munchin' Butts, all the way to Stardom
Michael Marco Giorgi ESQ.

The Butt Munchers always come prepared to play, and last night was no different. They showed a determination to win and it paid off in a big way, during a rare climactic finish (more on that at the end)   People were very cell phone friendly today, every time I walked around the venue I had to remind people. Of course they show the screen and it’s just baseball and whatever… but it’s in the RULES. WE GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES.   Tonight was a surprise for me, as the regular QM, lovely Corrina, emailed me in the morning feeling under the weather. I jumped at the

Hot Quiz! Check it And See! All The Teams Got Pretty Sweaty
Laura

What a hot night of quiz Tuesday night at Buck and Badger! No seriously, it was hot in the dining room. I was sweating like Sean Spicer in a synagogue. The official forecast from the reader on the wals had it 81 in the bar where the door was open, and about 87 in the dining room. Hot damn! I got a fever! And screw you, cowbell, the prescription is cold beer! We had 11 teams sit down to quiz and I love how you guys keep me guessing whether or not I’ve printed out enough round 5 sheets with your attendance. Why do drugs when you can live off the adrenaline of “did I make enough copies!?” Keep it up though quizzers, we may have to sweat off our respective genitalia, but we had

From the King's Court: Australian Animals Could Be from the Star Wars Universe....
Alex

What a night!  Just coming off a Rockets win, teams gathered to find their own victory at quiz night.  The real winners, if you ask me, are the ones who got the sliders.  A hint of curry seasoning?  Yes, please! We had a lot of new teams, which was great!  Fresh meat, new perspectives, and as always, your awesome quiz master.  :-) There were some tricky rounds last night.  Who had fun during the Round 2 audio round?  So fun hearing the super clip at the end.  And the surprise Double or Nothing Round 3?  For once, I was a stickler on the spelling.  And those Australian or Star Wars animals...yeah, good luck because I had

Year Three Begins!
Koby

A little over two years ago I was very excited, but nervous about a new opportunity I would be trying out.   I had just started my day job, and while I was happy to be employed I still felt unfulfilled. For most of my scholastic career I had been a performer in choir, band, and theatre, but it had been almost a decade since I had entertained anyone. Headshots Bar & Grill had posted on Facebook about auditions for this new pub quiz thing they were bringing to Wichita, and I saw an chance to perform again, while getting paid for it.   Auditioning was fun.

M16 Candles and Those Obsessed with Solving Something
stotticus

Generating a list of eight as-of-now imaginary movies I'd like to see we had a very interesting Round 5 with movie title combinations. The last word of one film began the title of the other giving us future hits such as "Scarface/Off" and "Shaun of the Dead Poet's Society". My favorite incorrect answer of the night came from what was to be Big Hero Sixteen Candles but came with an assault weaponry twist in the form of M16 Candles. The gritty coming-of-age  story that affects 15 minutes of the American news cycle every few years. Or we could just go see 19 Fast 19 Furious. Last night was a squeaker with Hangry Velociraptors

I’ll Sit in for A Round or Two!
Alicia

This week the nice weather was almost too enticing for many of our geeks! I can’t blame them, the rooftop patio was open and the Tigers were in town. Luckily, we had beer and trivia to keep us together, even if it was like playing musical chairs.   We got the game started by revisiting the wonderful toddler years of “mine” or words that rhymed with my, even though everything isn’t yours. We added music to our rodeo and L*E*A*H knocked it out the park before exiting stage left.

Whoa-oh, and You're Mary Tyler Moore...
The Susanturpin

Hey there, Whitestone! Good to see you, as always. There was an abundance of dogs at quiz on Wednesday night, which made my little softie heart soar. If I could make a living out of petting puppies and kittens, I totally would. There’s gotta be a niche for that. Wednesday night brought us rounds on things that rhymed with “my” (like a comic strip dude, the region of your body where your femur is, and OG journalist Elizabeth Cochrane’s pen name), songs mashed up with Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirt” (and, I have to admit, I really dug the mashup with Weezer), and emojis and hieroglyphics! Did you know that emoji is an actual Japanese word?

Another Week Another Friend
Sloan

I drove again this week. Well I was driven this week. I think this makes three weeks in a row. I a little ashamed. I wasn’t going to let this happen yet here we are. I think I have a valid reason this week though. I had yet another buddy come into town this week. Well two of them. I had one friend come and crash on the couch on his way through Junction to Vegas, to see family, and another is on vacation and needed out of the seattle for a bit, so my couch seemed a great place for him. He flew in today and landed around one. He then didn’t make it to my place until around two. We shot the shit for a bit then

Australia is a place no human should live
Patrick

Just real quick; let's talk about how basketball is the worst. sport. ever. For one: There are too many damn games. The season starts within football season (I think) and if every playoff game in every playoff series is played can last until MID JUNE! I caught game one of the Rockets/Thunder series and decided to go against my heart and actually attempt to watch it when my dad texts me for the game score as he was in the back country of Arkansas and didn't have TNT or something. So I'm giving my dad the play by plays and scores as the games going on and I'm kinda getting into it when hey! We won the game! I texted my dad excitedly and asked him how many more games were in

Super fun being back here last night. It was a nice intimate setting but the biggest difference for me this time was I had never been there to quiz with the sun still up at all. I hosted here over the winter when it got dark at about 4pm (or so it felt like). It almost looked like a different place lol. But it was great seeing all of your faces again and if my new schedule allows it, I'd love to come back sometime to visit. So until next time, keep on quizzin!

Quiz #2 Is In The Bag!
KelpStar

Speaking of bags, I managed to tear a giant hole in one of my favorite purses this week. I noticed because I was walking down the hallway of my school and started hearing the clink clink clink of my precious laundry quarters hitting the ground. Incidentally, have you ever seen a group of 10-year-olds go after dropped change? It’s eerily akin to a pack of hyenas around a fresh kill. Or a school of piranhas. Speaking of weird animals, R8 had a question about terrifying creatures from either Star Wars or Australia. Now, I’ve never seen Star Wars, but I have been to Australia and it’s goddamn horrifying. Spiders as big as your FACE, eye-stabbing-out magpies, and deadly

I subbed for Alex and here's what happened
RyanKennemur

So as the title suggests, I subbed for Alex last night and here's what happened. First of all, let me say that I appreciate that some folks actually clapped for me after a ill-timed but so very worth it pun. It was the first time in my life that something like that has ever happened, and now I can die.  Also, I like how folks give each other props during the quiz at The Stags Head. You can tell that the competition there is fierce, but also friendly. Everyone seems to appreciate each others' clever team names. Just all around, a great atmosphere. Speaking of clever team names, All Quiet on the Kanye Western Front took the top spot, beating out Trump's Tiny

It's gonna be (insert pic of JT)
Carl

Tonight is one of my favorite nights of the year. It’s the NFL draft! It marks the conclusion of weeks of sports opinionists an researchers debating what players or going to go to what teams, why certain teams, are going to make bad moves, why certain players might fall, and who might be the big players who will shake things up. That is correct, weeks and months of columns to analyze a sport when no games are being played. To engage in this hype and drama we will gather around and yell at the television with beers and burgers in hand, at our teams, when no games are being played. Now, this all seems completely foolish, and undoubtedly it absolutely is, but really it defines the essence
