Pixie Fairy Showdown
KelleyCrockett

In round 6 there was a question asking about Peter Pan. Besides thinking happy thoughts you need a sprinkle of what? The answer is Pixie dust. Not one team put this. Every team put Fairy dust. I wondered does that matter? Are they the same? The answer to that is no, they aren't the same. Besides being part of folklore from different areas, which doesn't make them different in my opinion, are there differences? Apparently Fairies are supposed to be winged and small women but that is only in more current depictions. They were often ugly troll like creatures or tall wingless females before that. Pixies on the other hand are considered to be small, mischievous, wingless females with pointed

Some aspects of ourselves we choose, others we are born into. I was born into being a geek. I blame it on being raised in a home covered in 1950's B movie posters. We watched Star Trek religiously as a family every Sunday night. Having your books taken away was the ultimate punishment bestowed upon us by my parents. Brutal, I know. It was inevitable I would be a geek. I am new to hosting pub quiz but that was only a matter of time as well. On a deeply personal note, I love turkey Legs! I look forward to getting my geek on while you get your drink on playing pub quiz. Cheers!

Can you...shut the fuck up?
The Danimal

Hello lovelies! You crazy cats sure do like to keep a date waitin', don't you!? There I was, sipping on my cider and wondering if I had worn my sexy underwear for nothing and there you all come waltzing in like I HADN'T been waiting for hours. You know what though? I'm not even mad. You all made me feel so special that I'm just glad you keep coming back to me. Speaking of feeling special, we had our very first visit from what basically amounts to a heckler. I will start by saying I honestly feel bad, because maybe that kid needed some help coming down from whatever they were on. But on the other hand, boy was that hilarious when they tried to leave

Danual is half man, half punching robot. Made of and from parts unknown, he has forsaken his old life as a farmer's son/ultimate underground fighting champ and taken up residence in sunny Seattle to forge a new life for himself. Now he enjoys long walks on the beach, October sunsets, and striking a balance between writing hokey bios and trying to be serious for just once in his damn life. Seriously, would it kill him to take JUST THIS ONE DAMN THING SERIOUSLY? Much like Jesus, Danual is a carpenter and he loves you very much.

BuzzBin was looking pretty empty for a while and I was worried I would have to give the quiz to only two teams!!...but right when 8:30 rolled around, everyone magically appeared and we ended up with nine teams!    In case anyone didn't notice tonight, it was really fucking hot tonight, which (I'm sure) is why you all came down to BuzzBin - for some ice cold drinks and some air conditioning. But, alas! BuzzBin has no air conditioning! But it does have drinks, and that's all that really matters anyway.    Our quiz tonight consisted of: popular ad slogans with one letter changed songs about girls named Jenny,

Adding An Extra Syllable Doesn't Count!
Alexandra

Let's face it, the best round last night was definitely the Historical Missed Connections.  A few of those made me blush as I read them.  Oops.  In close second though, I was particularly fond of Round 1 when Hot Chimichangas answered the "7-syllable" question, "Which Kelly Clarkson song topped the charts in the UK?" with "Behind These Hazel-el Eyes."  That was fantastic.   Congratulations to all our winners last night.  Was it Amanda who got the voodoo doll? I wrote your name down on the back of one of my pages, but I have quite a few and I think I lost it in the fray!  Sorry my dear.  Our second place team

The Life Aquatic with the Human Centipede

As much as Buffcat wanted an answer to be The Human Centipede, that was never the correct answer.  But it definitely won the answer of the night! Tie breaker tonight between Quaalude Pudding Pops and Did a 5 Year Create The New Google Logo with Google Logos winning. What we learned tonight: Uber's slogan is NOT "Driver's Wasted" What we didn't learn: What the hell is Krystal's?!

85 Points, 22 Teams, and 1 Happy Fat Jew
Avram

OH...WHAT A NIGHT!   Two records broken tonight! First off, 22 teams...yes, you read that right...22 TEAMS played tonight at Grand Rapids Brewing Company, selling out the room and then some. Some teams had to play standing at the bar or near the stairs; it was packed!   Second, 4 teams scored 70 or more. Usually the average is near 70. Last week, we set a record, but tonight, that record was broken not only by the team in 1st place, but by 2 teams that tied for 2nd. The first place team won with 85 points and the 2 2nd place teams had 80 points.   People are bringing their A game to these quizzes and I'm loving it!!!!! Had a few

The weather was nice, I didn't strangle any of my students today, and YOU PEOPLE were just SO PLEASANT to deal with. :-) Plus, a lot of my favorite regulars who took the summer off from quiz were back! It was so nice to see y'all all again! WELCOME BACK I MISSED YOU!What did you think of the new Round 3 format? Some of you did not plan very well. When you were fleshing out the list, you should have thought more carefully about whether or not you actually wanted to try to list more thqan one thing.

HOP CHOPS, HOW I LOVE THEE
Nate

Hop Chops might be the best beer to ever beer. Like seriously. I can't tell you enough about how awesome this beer is. Instead, you should probably just come down and drink one. If the good lord himself only drank one beer and one beer only, he would drink this one. He would descend to earth to Southeast Denver in his spaceship and grab himself a growler and fly back to his planet and party ALL. NIGHT. LONG.   Nay. Not party. He would enjoy this damned beer because it needs to be enjoyed. Like a fine wine. Or oral sex. Or something.   SERIOUSLY. SO. FUCKING. GOOD.   Can I get a WELCOME HOME to Member's

Wait, How Do You Pronouce Tagalog?
JoshMandell

Greetings quizzers and quizzets. Despite last nights team name of fall is coming it was still a blistering game of pub quiz last night with 8 great teams fighting for total domination. Such was the competition we actually had a tie for second place! As opposed to the usual fight to the death we decided to spare the cleanup and go for the Price Is Right round, 183 million iphones? Not bad Apple! Anyway the quiz went over well as usual, although some people in round 3 forgot that English isn't a foreign language in this country, well unless you ask the Native Americans. Rolling right along the Obama playlist was a hit, along with sports stars in movies. We put the

I sit here, with the page I write this on on one monitor and the excel spreadsheet of scores on the other. The math adds up though; don't fuck up the sports round, and you get into the top 3 teams. Simple as that. I know you guys have it in you. All you have to do is be well rounded in your knowledge. We all got a hint of how poorly the mic treats me (probably because I accidentally drop her some times...its not abuse I swear I love her (too dark of a joke there?)). Other than that round, I was pretty damn happy with everyone's scores. The eighth round, which I usually make fun of people for doing horribly on, was all around solid work for most teams. Hats off to yah. Other

Allston Boxing Day
The Duke of Allston

That's what we would call September 2nd, right?  Allston Christmas didn't feel like it was super nuts this year.  Nobody wedged a truck under an overpass on Storrow Drive, it didn't coincide with Labor Day weekend (yay, an extra week of "summer!"), and the streets didn't even look that abnormally busy when I was out Ubering yesterday.  I even read that only 62% of the city's rental leases are on the 9/1 - 8/31 cycle.  So for all the chest thumping, not even two-thirds of Bostonians would be moving on September 1st.     I did it two years in a row, and I haven't done it in 11 years.  God help me if I ever have to do it again, because I'm

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

Quizzers, how are you? How're you feeling? I'm dragging a bit today. In my life outside of pub quiz I've been busy; I'm newly back to work after a nice summer break from my steady job. On top of that, after the quiz last night, I went floating in some cheap wine. (By that, I mean I drank it. A lot of it.) So, yeah, I'm feeling a bit sluggish and that's why I'm running a little late with this blog. But, at last night's quiz, I think I proved that I can be might speedy with words when called upon to do so, providing a complete re-read of round four's questions in just seconds flat.

Thank you all for coming out tonight. New record! 19 freaking teams, holy shit balls! AND, AND, we ended in two hours. I’ll go on and take a god damn bow for that. Super shout out to the team with the cupcakes. Crave s’mores cupcake. OMG. I think I creamed. I also think I got diabetes. I hope the fucker had a squirt of insulin, else I could go into a diabetic coma at any moment. Maybe. Another record, tonight marks the first time Die Antwoord has come up on my playlist at ANY venue and NOBODY insisted I turn it off. Fuck, I even had some of you jam out. So I think what I’m trying to say is that we’ve caught a wave of awesome, and let’s ride it out until the sun

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Let's Try Not to Be So Emotional About It
AdrianTrevino

Nothing wakes a person up better than being at work and receiving a call from Quizzer Stafford saying that he has my girlfriend; I almost went into Liam Neeson's monologue from the first Taken movie before I remembered he had offered to take her to get her learners permit and teach her how to drive. Unfortunately, the bureaucrats at the DMV needed her to prove her residency, which required a copy of a utility bill to the house we're renting; unfortunately, all of the utility bills are under my name (ha ha ha ha, oh ho, credit score), so in order for her to prove she lives in our house (despite her name being on the lease agreement), she and Herr Stafford made

I also like making dumb jokes.  I tend to stay towards the middle of the road when it comes to... well, anything. I also do a lot of referential humor, so this only helps but serve that purpose. And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

 

Well.
