Tricky Dick And Frank's Beans
JacobNusbaum

Hello and welcome to the Saturday Night Geeks Who Drink at MVP’s blog. Let’s stop and take a moment to think about something. No. Not that. The other thing. The Richard Nixon as a rapper thing. It’s always interesting to see what interesting facts we can dig up on world leaders, especially when they are as universally well liked as “Tricky Dick”. I’m fairly positive there was an episode of Futurama in which the head President Richard Nixon was rapping. I did a quick search on the magic internets and it turns out there are a ton of rap battles featuring Nixon. I don’t want to start watching them for fear I will become lost in the land of YouTube, but

The Good, The Bad, and the Wildly Mediocre but Ultimately Inoffensive
Stevetothesmith

The Brooklyn Lounge is heating back up. I mean this both literally and figuratively, as the weather has been outrageously hot and we seem to going in a positive direction existentially. After we hit a little slow patch this summer with folks enjoying the great outdoors and taking those coveted summer vacations, we are back on track as one powerhouse of a quiz. Every week brings out new and old teams alike for some serious competition. Thanks to everyone for making this place rock. You guys are the best. Lets recap.   We had eight fiercely competitive and cleverly named teams come out last night for the Quiz. When all was said and done, three teams tied for second place

Without rules life would be anarchy. Anarchy is for kids graffitiing bathroom walls and protesting undergrads in Guy Fawkes masks. We at Wing Central on the Ave live by one simple rule of quizzing; don't be a dick. Those who dare challenge this rule through abnoxious answer shouting, cell phone answer checking and questioning Quizmaster will be swiftly dealt with. The punishment? Probably nothing more than public ridicule and fat shaming. Fat shaming is pretty much the only kind of shaming I'm allowed to do these days. If you can handle this rule, I welcome you to join our weekly quiz. I may even buy you a beer. I'm pretty fucking awesome like that.

Mitsubishi killed Americans! Too soon?
Stephen

They have very good pizza here as it turns out! We kicked off the night at 45th street Pub and Grill with Budget Sex Toys 1, Budget Sex Toys 2+3, The Stupids and Poop Tornado. Firstly, there were “C-A-R” answers (Carvel is a valiant guess for the dairy company which was bought by Nestle after being begun in 1899), and in Round 2 we briefly considered the relative merits of talking breaks in songs, a la the Elvis Presely “the stage is bare” monologue from “Are you Lonesome tonight.” The Shangri-Las have apparently not aged as well or as ubiquitously as they might have hoped. Round Three, my personal favorite, revealed

Saturday Night's Alright For Quizzing
The Jewish Viking

Surely no Saturday quiz has ever used that blog title, right? RIGHT?! It was a great night of quiz at O'Niell's Heights last night. I was filling in for Brower, who got sick (feel better buddy) who was filling in for Ian, who was at a wedding in Santa Fe (feel better buddy). And I'm so glad I did. I had fun, Fernando had fun, you had fun and if anyone didn't have fun, they're dead to us now. Seriously - dead to us. The quiz started with some cars and at least one tool. To be fair to Carson Daly though, if I was offered the opportunity to make a living working a few hours on TV being a tool I'd probably jump at the opportunity. Our music round was all about taking a

Cartha....something
Weapon Z

What’s up, blogosphere! We had a great turnout for our quiz at Krazy Karl’s. A good time was had by all, mainly at my expense. Usually I blog about what we learned last night, but this time I’m going to blog about what I learned last night. Carthage is a city in Tunisia. Its citizens are known as Carthaginians [carth-ag-IN-ian], and apparently this word is my Kryptonite. Despite practicing this word before quiz more times than I would care to admit, a mental block prevented me from saying this word as soon as I laid eyes on it. Put my paper down, no problem. Start reading the question again, total brain aneurism. Despite additional coaching by We Know Everything

Return of the Chris
Ptera Dactyl

Some of my favorite answers of the evening Lol come on guys. “Taylor Swift” doesn’t start with a “Z,” and also she sang “Shake it Off” not “Shake it Up”. Lots of good Christian folks coming to my quiz. Like, 75% of you did really well on that round. I myself was raised super christian, so i didn’t even have to look at the answers to grade. Don’t worry, we’re still definitely going to hell. I’m so embarrassed that my bartenders did s poorly on the cocktail visual round.  Yes, the rumors are true.

Who the hell is Jasper?
TanookiSuitandTie

Good evening, quizzerinos! We had another six team night tonight which just seems to be the natural order of things around Copper Lounge. A few of the regular teams that are normally present were gone but they made sure to have some new teams come in to take their place so as to balance things out. I guess that's how that worked. I also even had my heckler that sat at the end of the bar that decided to leave midway through round 2. There were a lot of deja vu-y things happening tonight. But nothing was more deja-vu-y than the fact the standings remained unchanged up until the very end. The teams in 6th, 5th, 4th, and 3rd never moved and there was a consistent tie for first

The One a Few Days Late
R-Kenny

Now that we've had a couple days to sit back and reflect, that upstairs thing was pretty fun wasn't it? Sure, it was hotter than hell and I went home with a scratchy voice, but we got to do something special together. It was the first, and hopefully, only time we do it, but I'm glad we did it together. Oh yeah, we also set a new record for teams. That was super neat to. So what else have I been up to? Well Friday night I went to the Seattle zombie escape room. If you haven't done a room escape yet, look into it. It's a ton of fun and the zombie one was pretty cool. I mean, if you're into being chased around a tiny, hot room by a dude in Zombie makeup while trying to solves puzzles that is.

Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Audio rounds are tricky in general, but tonight when people are talking boisterously over the sweet, sweet sounds of Will Ferrell bustin’ out some “Dust in the Wind,” it makes it extra difficult. You know what, Royal Hilltop trivia crew, you still crushed it! Our scores tonight show that we have some pretty smart people, some very smart people and some VERY smart people. I gush, but I like the way you quiz. In a back-and-forth match, The Tapir's Highly Articulate Wang and Rage Against the Vending Machine really went at it (not literally). In the end, probably with the help of that Tapir’s massive MASSIVE dick, the Tapir’s

Presumably you are reading this because you want to know something more about me, although I'm sure we've already met. Here are the highlights: I like money. If we meet you should give me some, it's how my people show respect. I'll probably forget your name. Not that it's not important to me, I just really suck at remembering it. If I call you Steve and it's really Brian, just know that I'm trying. If I call you Steve and it's really Stacy, just know that I'm drunk. If I call you Steve and it's really Steve, just know that I got lucky and will then need to buy a lotto ticket. I have a Sports Management degree, so yes, I know a lot about sports. However, my knowledge is very specific to running a team and the teams I like. I don't give a shit who was the back up third baseman for the Rockies in 1997, so please don't ask. Don't fuck with Aurora in my presence. I grew up there so it will not end well. I once tried to justify that I loved a job so much that I was going to give it up for Lent. The company couldn't say no as that would be against my religion and basically a hate crime. How'd it end? Welp, I'm now a Quizmaster. Yes, I do always talk like the 'Moviephone' guy. Is that still a thing and is that dude still recording movies? Those are my highlights. Please pay attention to #1, that's really key. These are my beliefs, you can't contradict or that's a hate crime.

What do you think would be Nixon’s rapper name? I mean the obvious would be Slick Rick or Tricky Dick, I kind of like Tricky Dicky, that sounds pretty gangsta. I would just love to hear what he would rap about, one can dream. What would be even more awesome is if his wife Pat could come in with the chorus or as a backup singer. Someone needs to make a Nixon rap song, seriously I think it could be a hit. Great quiz tonight, Mothra Hoople kept a tight hold on lead most of the night and took home first place. Dirty Darcy’s and Scruffy Looking Nerf Herders were tied for second but both teams did not qualify for winning so in

Warning: Fat Quizmaster
Hunter

You know those rules we give out at the beginning of each quiz? Yeah, we actually mean that stuff. Especially Don't Shout Out The Answers. When we have to repeat said rule and give a warning of what will happen, you need to understand that we're not joking. Case in point: It was a fun crowd at Casey's tonight, but when people (both on teams and not on teams) shouted out an answer, I quickly stated (again) that was against the rules and that they are now warned that I would come sit on their lap for the remainder of the round if a answer is shouted out again... and they would not like it because I'm a fat guy and it will be uncomfortable for

Helooooooooo readers of The Pioneer blog!! It’s Jillian here, novice quizmaster and taco enthusiast. When looking up the word novice, as I often do with words due to my limited vocabulary and propensity for drinking, I found an interesting definition. NOVICE (n.):  an animal, especially a racehorse, that has not yet won a major prize or reached a level of performance to qualify for important events. Obviously, this definition had a huge effect on me due to the similarity to my situation. I began to well up with tears, but reminded myself that I am in fact a quizmaster, and not a racehorse.   Racehorse/quizmaster
