Mayhem, Mirth and Madness
ShadCampbell

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

Geeks Who Drink Ice Tea
Drew-a-mania

That's the first time I've ever worked sober.   Its in my contract at Geeks and my 9-5 cubicle job that I get to drink 2 Alien Amber cervezas.  2 beers or I don't lift a finger!  Its called the Keith Richards clause.  Luckily, Thankfully, Mercifully, Ferngully, I had some back up tonight. The Cube had a brief alcohol intermission this evening, but honestly my liver probably appreciated it.  However, that was not the interesting news this evening. We had our new friend Kristin, all the way from Flagstaff, AZ conduct her first quiz!  And she was amazing!   Yes I know she conducted 1 round yesterday and she only conducted 5 rounds tonight,

After years of third place finishes at Geeks Quizzes I have embraced the saying "if you can't beat 'em... than just quit and become a Quizmaster."  

When I'm not selling out I spend my time in ABQ as a stand-up comedian, indy wrestler, and salsateer.  My finishing move in wrestling is a high impact belly-flop; ironically that's how I end most of my comedy sets.  I suppose thats the Libra in me always looking for balance.  Which is probably a good explanation for the two tattoos on my back: one is a hawk with kanji letters in the wings and the other is Lucy Liu... that way I have two badass birds with a little bit of Chinese in them.

Best Week Ever?
R-Kenny

Maybe you think I'm speaking of the 4th of July? Yes. I do like this holiday. We get to blow shit up and celebrate this awesome country we live in. Don't mistake me for super patriotic or anything. America's got it's problems, but we certainly lucked out to be born here. There are other sweet countries to have been born in, but the US is a pretty solid one. I may be apathetic as shit about US politics, no seriously it's too exhausting to care, but I do appreciate not living in a country where machetes are a common murder weapon. Yes. I'm afraid of being killed by a machete. Who isn't? I've rambled about something that isn't even why I'm excited for this next week. It's MOTHA F'ING SHARK

Back To Thursday
Tim

Hey, gang.   It's been a while since we did this on a Thursday, and it feels good to be back. We had a packed bar, which either means you were hungry for a quiz or you all have Friday off for the holiday. Either way, thanks for coming. We had a great quiz with some big fat scores, too, so obviously your senses haven't been adversely affected by the oppressive summer heat. You guys murdered the music round, collectively, as well as round eight, with really no bad rounds in between. You all know your Idaho trivia, Greek celebrities and people born on Independence Day. Sorry if round seven spoiled any TV for you, but come on...you gotta keep current on that shit.   Grabbing

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!

Summer Vacation… The Final Frontier!
Krista

Last night was ama….ZING! We had eight teams compete in our “final” quiz of the school year 2014-15. Before we get all slathered in sunscreen and our insides coated with BBQ sauce let’s take a moment to reminisce on all the good times we have shared! Will you sign my yearbook?   Between the good, the bad, and the super nerdy, we as a group have discovered salad is a number, that if you give me a big word to pronounce I will most likely mispronounce it, and if it’s left up to me, which it is, I will start to hum the intro music to my favorite TV series live on air while reading the answers… and I will do it with great accuracy!

When she's not acting as Quizmaster, you can probably see Krista at one of the local karaoke scenes singing heart out. In the summer, you can spot her hiking the beautiful Ithaca gorges or possibly walking the several waterfront trails in Ithaca. If you're lucky, you might find her slinging drinks at an Ithaca music venue... but if you really want to catch Krista on a weekly basis, then head down to The Rhine House Thursday nights for some drinks, a few laughs, and a Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz!

The elderly hippies have invaded Chicago.    The Grateful Dead are having their fiftieth anniversary/reunion concert/farewell concert in Soldier Field this weekend, and the Deadheads are here in full. freaking. force. My dayjob is near Ogilve/Union, so I wasn't too terrible surprised to see olds in hemp capri pants and even a few second- and third-generation hippies milling around, but I was very taken aback when I saw them all the way up by Johnny O'Hagan's. I invited some to play quiz, but they declined with beatific smiles. I spent many many years of my youth in a retirement community town that successfully styled itself into cultural

The warrior known now as Quizmaster Chris was born immortal in the Scottish highlands in the 1500's. He was able to keep his clan's secret for centuries until being discovered by Sean Connery in New York in 1985. LaRue escaped to live another day, and Connery played himself in the film adaptation of the encounter.

Criss Angel was NOT in Magic Mike: XXL and I Demand a Refund!
AdamSweeney

May we all agree that this summer movie season has been a huge bust? Like Christina Hendricks' bust big. Sure, Jurassic World made a lot of money but Avengers: Age of Ultron was average and it looks like Terminator: Genisys is going to be, ahem, Judgment Day for that franchise. That leaves us with Magic Mike: Get it, because it's about dicks. Can't say I'll be seeing it but if it makes moviegoers happy and allows them to let off some steam then by all means, get it. Let's pray next year is better. Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, I am watching you.   Speaking of Mikes, or mics, ours was broken last night but that didn't stop us from powering through 8 rounds of quiz

Right in the Baby Parts
Nicknames are Hard

In 1806, Michael Keens, a market gardener of Isleworth near London, exhibited the first cultivated strawberry that combined size, flavor, and color at the Royal Horticultural Society. The 600 strawberry varieties found today stem from five or six original wild species, and are a member of the rose family. The wild, small, fragrant forest strawberry of Europe was available to the Romans in the Middle Ages. Europeans discovered wild strawberries in Virginia when their ships landed there in 1588, grown by local American Indians who had cultivated strawberries as early as 1643. When Virginia sent a better flavored, strawberry to England in 1642, and a large white strawberry from Chile was introduced

Back when video games weren’t violent…
Josh

I lost my gaming prowess years ago.  I think it all ended for me after a marathon round of Army Men: Sarge’s Heroes.   I guess nothing could top the feeling of successfully taking down a tan military comprised of plastic men, their little artificial limbs getting blown off in small chunks as I charged into final combat to defeat General Plastro and end his evil plot to bring in “Weapons of Mass Destruction”.  General Plastro was the epitome of evil- heavyset to ensure you recognized that  he lived opulently, dark aviator glasses so you couldn’t see his shifty eyes, skinny little mustache…  facial hair is ALWAYS evil.  He also

Hello gorgeous! Or shall I say, hello gorgeous-es! Man, after a week away from your mugs, you sure are a sight for sore eyes and sunburns. I know, I know, everyone is talking about the heat. I am, in no way, obligated to engage in small talk about the weather via this blog post, but, because I am so generous, I’m going to fill your mind with the power of suggestion- the power of much cooler things to help you cope with this heat.

Conquest of the Suburbanites
Alex

Tonight's quiz had three teams. One team was the front of house staff, and the other two teams were some regular players at 3 Squares in Maple Grove who came down to celebrate the start of an early weekend. They were going to play as a single team, but seeing a lack of competition, they split up into two teams. It turned into a pretty laid back night for everyone involved as we came into the second half, but in the end, there had to be a winner, and The Help (the staff) pulled out a tie with Bitches Got Last to leave Dem Rough Riders in third. Being nice, the staff just said they would pass on winnings, so
