Eric Mathews was a world-class hottie
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started the night with a surprisingly difficult round on Celebrity. Like the Scientology magazine, and the MTV Deathmatch. The average here was only about a 5, which for a Round 1 is a bit foreboding.Our music round tonight was a difficult one in which you had to name the artist behind the song, and then the ACTOR who was in the music video. This was almost as difficult for most of you as Round 1 had been.Tonight's Round 3 was a delightful 50/50 round where I asked you if I was describing Tim Kaine, or the Pillsbury Doughboy. This was possibly my favorite 50/50 round ever, not least because y'all clearly have no idea how big 22 cm

Everything I know I learned from Mr. Feeny

  Well hello there new friends. Nice of you to join me here on the blog. We’re recapping all of the great and exciting happenings here at Darcy’s. Tonight’s quiz was a doozy. We tried to throw you off with a non-traditional round 2, which was our first audio round of the evening. But alas, you could not be fooled by our shenanigans. And we were all reminded of how fantastic the Fatboy Slim music video for Weapon of Choice was. If you haven’t seen Christopher Walken floating around, you should check out the video

That's a Mister to you!
Christy

Back in the 1980s my dad was in a rock band that made a jokey music video for a local news station called "Meatball", in which the restaurant reviewer's meatball went rolling away and he went chasing after it. I am recalling this because it contains the line "My name is Bill Rodgers, that's a Mister to you/I'm the one and only star of this restaurant review!", and tonight's round on famous misters just kept getting this ridiculous song in my head. (If you want to see it yourself, go search for Meatball by Ontray on YouTube. My dad is the bass player in the red spandex pants.) From the afrementioned famous misters to a sudoku-inspired visual round to an out of the ordinary audio round,

Great night tonight for you fans of your Thursday night pub quiz.  There were great beers on tap, happy hour was extended as usual, and we all slipped right into the farcical side of life that are our times together.  I want to say that I am proud of each and every team for their performance tonight on a night where half of our quiz was worth double the points if you were having them!  Also, great job always knowing what year was a presidential year, even if you didn’t always get the right one.  I am going to once again go over the fact that suffragettes were all white ladies with lots of money, but joke’s on that Anthony chick once they settle once

Best described as one of those "substitute people," Heather can be seen filling in for most any Front Range QM.  (Except the crazies in the Springs.)  In her spare time she enjoys long walks on the beach, embroidery, and coming up with cryptic hints and clues for her substi-quizlings.  

Things to know about Heather if she subs for your quiz?  She's prone to buy you a beer if you mention something from this bio, and has also been known from time to time to announce for "The Derby" as CSI seems to think it's called.

Nutter Butters DO Have a Sexual Meaning
Geoff (like Chaucer)

Seven months down, five to go!  I just hope the next five months go better than the last seven - too many bad things have happened so far.  A good pub quiz will always help me forget about that; tonight's quiz fit the bill.  Here's how it went down. Twelve teams answered my call to come in from the rain and test their minds.  We covered our usual range of weird topics - celebrity, celebrities in music videos, the Pillsbury Doughboy, trees, Sudoku, voting rights, and plain good old-fashioned suffering.  Oh, and we discussed kings and queens too. Goonies Rock won our first place prize with a 70-point score.  Team Excelsior

Catch the Fever!
Justin Mazouat

We had a great night last night at M Uptown. Seriously, the energy was the best I've had in a long while of hosting, so thanks to all the great teams that showed up and quizzed out. We had four sixteen point rounds last night, marking one of the very few times that it paid off to joker a visual round. Don't get used to it though, we might just be back to a normal boring round five next week. There were a few rounds different than normal as well. Our audio round was tricky, but apparently not as much as I thought, the scores were far higher than I expected! The round three was tougher than I thought it might be on the other hand, most of the teams that

Heh.   But honestly, it was a very memorable night. I give a special prize of hypothetical value and monetary worth to the team who brought in a dog.

Ahoy! Y'all, SO much has gone on this week. Lots of sad shit, some kinda funny shit, some downright terrifying shit (ie, Guliani's likeness to evil Bilbo) and yet none of it made it into the team names this week! You guys generally tend to impress the hell out of me with your clever answers and vast knowledge of some really obscure stuff.

Buffy Would Be Proud
Johnna

If you’re a regular reader of my oh-so-popular blog, you already know of my undying affection for Buffy and the Scooby gang. It feels appropriate tonight of all nights, that we took a moment to reflect on who Buffy ended up with in the epic finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So much of the show is the centered around the heart wrenching love triangle between Buffy and her dead lovers, but when the camera takes it’s last close up of that adorably snarky face, Buffy was alone.  Or was she? In those final moments Buffy finds herself without a man, but instead surrounded by other badass slayers just like herself. She no longer has to carry the weight of the world on her

The Newbs. They walk in. They hear this charming fellow on the microphone and are lured in to what they think will me a friendly, chill, easy night of simple trivia questions, a nice piece of eye candy hosting and making everybody feel all warm and fuzzy. Oh baby… Instead of getting all of the things that they could have hoped for, they received me. They received a fun, competitive crowd. You know, that very same crowd that is always at King Harbor Brewing Company for Geeks Who Drink on a Wednesday!

Well here we are looking at another upcoming weekend and it is already proving to be a good one. Finished up work and got some tasty food from the cafe next door. Came home to some cuddles from my pets. This weekend I am going to a family picnic and then possibly a float on Sunday. I very excited about it! ALSO, my roommate and I are getting some green couches on Sunday! FREE green couches! Not gross green like chartreuse. But a nice shade that will add some color to the living room. Also did I mention they are FREE?! That's the best kind of couches! Oh and that GISHWHES thing that I mentioned last week starts this weekend. Hmmm, I may have bitten off more than

If I Was You, I'd Wanna Be Me Too

Do you ever get a song stuck in your head?I’ll bet you can’t guess which one is stuck in mine! And because it’s stuck in my head, I’ve been walking around and constantly singing it. And because I’m constantly walking around singing it, my fiancé is walking around singing it. And when he walks around singing something, instead of just singing the song, he constantly parodies it instead. “If I was boof, I’d wanna be Ranger. I’d wanna be Ranger. I’d wanna be Ranger.” “If I was puppy I’d wanna be puppy. I’d wanna be puppy. I’d wanna be puppy.” Can you tell who

My Friends Get Bored Easily and Won't Let Me Work

Handsome Jake Falconberg, its quite the name and he’s kicking your ass.  Is there any Jake out there that isn’t handsome? I think we all have had that one Handsome Jake Falconberg at one point in our lives.  In fact maybe you are one.  You know the good looking jock, with the car, and the girl??  Do you remember how many times in high school you watched him score 5 touchdowns and then go home and jerk off to his girlfriend?  22.  22 fucking times for me.  Going to a high school known for being a football powerhouse actually only benefits the athletes.  Tell your kids.  The best part, and heed this as a warning Jake, is that same Handsome

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

Hello? Is Anybody Out There?
Please don't call me Matt. I hate that.

Although I have played at Jake’s before, this was my first time hosting in their fine establishment. The interesting part is that when I played, a few months back, we were in the front room with the host in kind of a DJ booth type thing, but apparently they now set up in the back bar, with me in a corner table. This arrangement meant that while I could see the bartender, and the servers coming and going, the total number of players I could see was “none”. It was a fairly surreal experience because I really wasn’t sure if I even had any players, how many of them there were, what they looked like, if they could hear me, etc., so I could

In a perfect world he would Quiz Monday-Friday and spend the weekend building stupid old cars, but in this imperfect world he only gets to Quiz once a week and he doesn't even have a driver's license. He is working on the formula for making that perfect world happen, but until then you'll just have to settle for that one night a week.

When no otherwise preoccupied with work or shit like that you can find him cursing at the Rockies game on the vintage radio in his garage while he pretends to be productive with a bike or some such, or just walking around.

If you want to give him a gift his favorite things in the world are anything vintage, baseball-related, or Italian. He also accepts cash.

Bonus Round, Bringing in the Bonuses!
KataMari

Our beloved barcade was nearly full up with quizzers and teams alike—and a few rowdy patrons who shall remain nameless. (But admit it—we thought they were super annoying). Our quiz was full of double point rounds it seemed—Rounds 2, 5 and 8 had double the points, but we didn’t see any super crazy high overall scores. Yet. Give it time. Round 1 was fun, as I presented in what I figured was Yosemite Sam’s accent—but I’m sure I sounded more like Foghorn Leghorn. It was fun for teams to guess who I was hollerin’ about. Damn Whoppi Goldberg and Susan B Anthony
