A Broken Man
Rainier

  Thank you for all the warm words of support. I believe throughout the night I heard the following supportive quotes. “So I hear you fucked your foot up? Doesn’t look fucked up.” “The lady last week said you were unable to walk. Did you jesus yourself?” “Foot looks fine? You just fake it last week?” “Paul said you broke something. What?”

Folks around these parts know me by a lot of names. Having grown up in Seattle I went by Cookie during my time playing baseball. Also had the nickname Nature Boy at summer camp, and in high school Spanish class I was Diablo. Along with my many names come many talents. I was the state pickleball champion two years in a row (2005-2006) and have a pretty mean drinking arm when it comes to bar games. Try your luck and challenge me to some pool if you feel lucky. Am a passionate world traveler with plenty of plans to keep moving along in the future. Currently enjoying life and laying it all on the line Monday night at the Blue Star Cafe & Pub.

Review in 3 Sentences
Elephant Gangsta Tooth

Happy September everyone! Another successful quiz for the books… and by successful I mean we got through it, with ONLY a couple of zero points scored in a rounds, whoops.   I want to apologize for trying to sing the "Book of Mormon" versus in Round 6. I was just super excited about it because we just saw it on Sunday. Before we went, my husband and I were trying to remember what our favorite Broadway musical was. And I realized…. I've only seen ONE Broadway musical: Cats. And that one didn't make any fucking sense, so BOM was a clear winner.   Now I know it has been out for over four

Firstly, a big HELLS YEAH to the rock star quizzers of Pitfire Pizza, y’all were a holy terror and a ton of fun! Secondly, apologies to the quizzers who find themselves cropped to within an inch of their life or missing half their face… I’ll get this right someday, goddamnit! Thirdly, thank you to Albam Insantis for educating me on the proper use of “fap”, “fapping” and “fappiest”. Your recompense was to witness my humiliation and glee as I finally got the joke. DOY!   In summary, I devoured a Green Eggs and Ham pizza and imbibed some sangria and had a peaceful nights rest. Oh right, you don’t

When was the last time you thought about Chris Kirkpatrick?
Brad

Last night's quiz was our first patio-less quiz in a while. Thirteen teams gathered in both rooms and, for the second straight week, we had a third round where 16 points were possible. It's the first time we've done an anything/everything round, which can be quite the mouthful trying to explain. Essentially, we give you a set list and two items on that list. Your job is: for one point, name any of the remaining items on the list. For two points, name ALL remaining items on the list. Any wrong answers = zero points. Fun times! Some tough questions, but I think everyone got at least one, if not two, of the two point answers. Diarrhea Tampon almost made it into the

Folgers Truly Is The Best Fart of Waking Up!
EricBenner

Solid quiz all the way around for our first quiz of September (also nearing the anniversary of my 3rd year at the Marco Polo). Usually you'll get a squad or two that gives up after 2 rounds, or just flat out as no understanding of pop culture/general knowledge. Who are those people??? Am I right?? But this week all six teams scored over 65 points, we had another quiz of just one measly point sepearating the top two squads with A Team Name Slickback just barely edging out new-ish regulars You Betcha! Notes: - Gotta love having the word "fart" just one question into the quiz this week. Comes in as a handy ice breaker, ya know? -

A Much Too Literal Retelling of Wednesday’s Escapades is what this Entry Tries to Do
RESII

The evening started with an early version of Prince’s “Purple Rain” and was concluded with some Tupac and Ray Charles. It was September 2, 2015 and here is a recap of the events.   People came by some sort of transportation and the quiz started at 8:00. I read over the rules before the contest, as is my wont. Participants gathered in groups, sat in chairs next to tables, and laughed uproariously at my jokes.   Round one featured famous ad slogans with just one letter changed, round two was about songs with the same female name in the title, and round three was naming items in a myriad of categories.Then we had a scoring break.   The

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

Just because it is a round on show tunes, doesn't mean I have to break into song...
Snarky Shark

September 2nd, 2015 - The Cavern Club Yep. Musicals, Opera, Advertising Jingles, they all seem to have their fans atPubQuiz. Tonight started off well with a round on popular add slogans thatpretty much everyone found perhaps a little too honest. The Best Fart of Waking Up?Yeah, that might actually be Folger's tagline. As for the more musically inclined, our Round 6: Everything I need to Know, I learned from Show Tuneswas a bit off. Despite demands that I sing out each question, I'm afraid I had to insist that was notgoing to happen. Mostly due to Post-PAX Pox and my voice being on the edge, but partly for my dignity's sake.What little is

Hi Everyone,

This is Snarky Shark. I'm the current host of the GeeksWhoDrink Pubquiz over at the Lunchbox Laboratory in South Lake Union and The Blarney Stone on Pike.

As for me, I'm pretty much a Seattlite. Sure, I've lived all over the Western United States, but I definitely call this place my home. 

Personally, I dig science questions. Why? Well, in real life <le sigh> I'm a graduate student in the Department of Biochemistry in the University of Washington. Though, I can't say I've ever made a Kool-Aid cocktail as is the case with the Lunchbox Lab.

I really enjoy the regular players, with their funny quirks. As well as the hopeful glean in the eyes of the newbies who think they can win. (How quickly those hopes are shattered...)

Need a ringer for Chemistry? Biochemistry? Weird Geological Distributions of Heavy Metals? (Music and otherwise?) I can help with that. However, if you're on the other side of the quiz...I can't help you. But you're going to need it.

See you then.

-Snarky Shark

What's up, geeks? I had an awesome time with y'all last night! Thanks for coming out! We started off with Round One, which was all about popular slogans. Round Two was our audio round, Eight Songs, Four Women. Next, in Round Three, you had to push your luck coming up with bones in the leg and N*Synch members' names.  Round Four was all about occupational hazards and dangerous jobs, like lion-taming and lumber-jilling (or beaver cleaving). Round Five was our visual round on party scenes in different movies.

Eat Flesh!
Koby

It was a low-key, but still fun pub quiz this week at Headshots Bar & Grill. Fourteen teams came out to try their hand at winning prizes, but only one can be the champ!   The categories were a lot of fun this week. Round 1 was titled "Reach Out and Torch Someone". Every clue was a popular ad slogan, with just one letter changed. Favorites were "Eat Flesh," "Drivers Wasted," and "The Fappiest Place on Earth."   This week's music round was also pretty sweet, called "Eight Songs, Four Women." Each song had one of four women's names in them (Jane, Cecilia, Sally, and Jenny). Teams Hookers 'N Blow

An Archipelago of Answers in a Sea of Vodka
Tina the Bold

School is back in session, my Quizzlings!  By which I mean that we all needed to focus real hard on that new format for Round three; overall, I think we did well.  Good lord, though!  I understood there would be NO MATH!  In fact, I did hear a number of interesting flash-backs to our collective college years by the end of the night.  Was that the Quiz or the vodka drinks talking?  Of course, we match a new format to a new sponsor… and September at Sloan’s features Deep Eddy Vodka.  This could be a risky avenue for a Wednesday night. So there I sat, sipping on a cheap hipster beer.  We discussed how 90s alternative rock is basically

Gone to the Dogs
J.A.M.E.S.

We had a couple of four-legged visitors to the Lion ad Rose Park North last night on the patio, thanks to team 2 Dogs and 1 Cup. If you look to the left you can see Sid Vicious (the little one) and Dora (the big one). They we’re both very friendly and total sweethearts.   Speaking of dogs, Visual Round 5 Question 5 featured a scene from the 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio. However, that is not the film that I want to talk to you about tonight. Actually, I suppose warn you about would be appropriate.   I’m talking about the 2002 movie Wolves of Wall

Meats in your mouth, not in your hand
Jennabird

I felt pretty slimy last night. No, not from the massive conglomeration of bodies hanging out in the lobby and bar (bless all of you!). Slimy because I had to read those cheesy corporate slogans. I do not represent any company save Geeks Who Drink, LLC. Yet last night, I felt hornswaggled into selling you soap, sandwiches, sausages, and other s***. I understand the principle of a slogan is a short, catchy phrase that inspires people to buy your product. Basically, “Buy this crap so your life won’t suck as much!” To prove how stupid slogans are, I present to you a few of the absolute worst slogans actually used by major corporations. “Our

Somebody actually read my blog last week! One of the guys that showed up for quiz brought a pizza to the venue, with his friends..he can't take all the credit, and he referenced the blog I wrote last week for Banzai, regarding the Milky Way bars dipped in mayonnaise! I'm not sure how to feel! These blogs had been almost my private space to blather on about all kinds of crap and I never really thought anyone would actually read them! Now I need to reconsider how I prepare for writing the Quiz Blargh! Should I make them more relevant to things that go on outside my head in the real world? Should I focus more on what the quizzers did, like writing with a pencil and drinking some Tequila

Sure I may have flubbed the wording on that question once or twice, but hey, more than half the teams got it right. So….what was the loss there?   Anyway, it was a good field last night.  I thought Zack Attack was gonna be running away with it, as usual, but toward the end the Bar-B Cuties were hot on their heals.  I think if we would have had one more round it could have been either teams games.    Also, a great show of sportsmanship occurred last night.  When I couldn’t award the Bar-B cuties their second place prize since they were over the contestant limit I had to give it to Your

Our first Wednesday quiz was a smashing success. The Twisted Pine quiz regulars proved their loyalty by showing up in spades and we had a handful of newbies who put up a darn good fight for first. A few highlights from the night:   In a sad commentary on international affairs, more teams could name all of the members of N’Sync than could complete a list of the last four UN Secretaries General.   …but at least more people follow Barack Obama on Twitter than Kim Kardashian. So we have that going for us.   When it comes to recognizing movies by their epic party scenes and identifying companies by their catchphrases,
