Take Off.

Happy Canada Day! That's right, today was the 148th birthday of my home and native land. You may be wondering what exactly we do to celebrate Canada Day back home, and to be honest, it's not that much different than how you guys celebrate the 4th of July. We drink beer (but then again we always do that), we put delicious meats to the flames in our backyards, and we gather at parks or if you're lucky enough to be in Ottawa, you go the Parliament Hill and celebrate there with lots of live music and at the end of the night fireworks. I think the biggest difference is the fireworks. In Canada, fireworks are classified as explosives and are illegal. You can have sparklers

Jersey Shore Cast Aren't Crabs, But May Have Some Anyway

Greetings loved ones, it is I Hardwuar, the Human Quizziette, here to bring you the sights and sounds from another great night at Chelsea Pub and Lounge. We had 11 teams all looking for the top spot, but of course we award our top three. It's my second week filling in at Chelsea and let me tell you this time around things just seemed...better. The traffic was clear, the birds were singing, there was an open meter right in front of the bar, my parking spot was the BEST, I was just feeling it. Once the quiz got underway, it was up to our top teams to claim their spots. So how did they do? Only one way to find out, LET'S RECAP!   Round 3 had

Sex Tapes and Poe
EricMusehl

I've been rather busy as of late, we're moving from a house where we have lived for 12 years and now have 3 kids, to an apartment in a different neighborhood. It's a sideways step, meaning it's not a step up or step down. Sure we lose some things like a yard and the ability to knock down random walls. But we get two bathrooms and two bedrooms. And that's awesome. But you take high temps, 3 kids, too much stuff, lack of sleep, and lots of hauling and lifting and you get one zonked out quiz master. Happily, my quizzers take me in stride and had a good time. We talked a lot about sex tapes and porn today, mostly becuase of the round featuring Pam Anderson. It was name

Dugger? Damn Near Killed Her walked away with a win - but just barely - over three other teams (Scissor Me Timbers, Twat's That? I Cunt Hear You, and Captain Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters) who were all within just a couple questions. Four teams finishing within 4 points of one another makes for a damn close quiz. Everybody did surprisingly well in the Canuck parody music round. I thought there were some tough, obscure songs, but most teams identified them with no problems. Team Chris Allen tried his/their hardest to scratch his/their way out of last place, scoring a bountiful 10 points in Round 8, but his/their efforts were too little and too late and he/they found him/themself in his/their

With last weeks give away of Yankees tickets to first place and word of mouth for the summer season, we saw a large amount of teams for this bar again tossing you tickets for being witty. In third place after a tie breaker we had the regulars in Team Christopher Reeves is No Christopher Walken, who didn't mind the prize so long as they got top three honors. Second place went to a team of up and comers under the leadership of their power forward Efram, The Broke Greeks walked away with a voucher for discounts on their next visit.

Bring The Family, The Beer Is Great
Winja

     What a beautiful evening at the Beer Garden last night!  All the windows were open and a mad breeze was hugging us all before quiz started.  We had a large group - some family reunion or something - barrel in just before quiz, and with all the daylight, the place was more of a family affair with kids running around than a beer garden for adults.  I had my Magic Mike playlist all cued up and was getting a little concerned with my “Pony” track on deck early.  The night before we saw “Magic Mike XXL” at the Alamo Drafthouse - it was their Rowdy Screening before opening day.  We picked this showing primarily for the

We Miss You Already, Tina!
The Merry Wanderer

Not sure if the rest of you noticed, but our beloved bartender, Tina, wasn't behind the bar last night! I asked the new bartender where she was and she said....SHE MOVED!! To another state! Noooooooooo!!!! Tina, we'll miss you!!! But, now we've got two more bartenders to get to know, and I'm sure they'll be just as adorable and awesome as Tina.    All that sadness aside, we had a pretty awesome quiz last night, with an influx of people from our previous weeks numbers. We started the night with seven teams, and ended the night with nine teams!! Two of those teams came in a little late, but they were just there to have fun, and it seems like they did...lots of

Phish Food For The Win!
Sweet Pea

Welcome to another installment of the weekly blog for the recap of the quiz we had last night. If that isn’t a run on sentence I don’t know what is. So we started a bit late last night because of ALL THE GODDAMN TRAFFIC. I live in midtown and it took me A FRACKING HOUR to get across the river. I usually leave me house about an hour before quiz starts, but last night it wasn’t nearly enough time. You can make it almost everywhere in the metro are in, at most, 35 minutes. But noooooo, someone had to get into a wreck, or something, I never actually found out,  and tie up traffic so badly that I didn’t reach over 5 miles an hour from the time I hit Jefferson all the

Unhappy Campers
Bilbo Teabaggins/BillDozer

I’m used to receiving little notes on some rounds, but last night it seemed that the teams displayed more frustration than normal at their lack of knowledge in certain categories, namely musicians and the filmography of Dan Aykroyd http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000101/ and Pamela Anderson http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000097/.  Perhaps a refresher at IMDB will help teams in the future tell the difference between Barb Wire and The Pam and Tommy Honeymoon Video.  From my recollection Barb Wire had

We had to bid adieu to one of our regular and exceptional quizzers last night as he leaves us for the hinterlands of the mitten. When first I met Jamie, I constantly referred to him as Jamie Presley.  The teams he has helmed have the most first place victories at The Blind Donkey.  He has also won at my other venue on a near-constant basis.  And he is the only quizzer to ever successful win an evening playing by himself.  I said “by.”  And he’s the only quizzer with a confirmed kill.  We’ll miss the hell out of you, buddy.  May fortune favor you in Michigan.  A state that God has all but forgotten.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream at Canadians
ChristinaHicks

Last night was not as glorious, weather wise, as last week. BUT there was a PUPPY at the bar! It was sooooooo tiny and I'm tempted to make the entire blog about her. But I will digress. We had a round on ice cream and not one parson made a Blue Bell reference,  because we're all to tap respectful. But it still made me crave ice cream... Someone on one of the teams called me ma'am and that was. ..odd. Somehow a round on Pamela Anderson & Dan Akroyd omitted Pamela's greatest show: VIP. Inconceivable! But before I get out of control about this faux pas, let's talk about our winners! Robert took home the

I'd Rather Listen To the Fine Young Spice Girls
Gryffindork

Apparently Uncle Kracker and members of Better Than Ezra and Sugar Ray have formed the “super”-group Uncle Ezra Ray. There are so many things wrong with this, but let’s start with the obvious: that awful name. “Uncle Ezra Ray”? Seriously? That’s the best they could come up with, huh? Did “Ezra’s Sugar Uncle” seem too rapey? Or is there already a band called “15 More Minutes”? How about “Midlife Crisis,” or “Over the Hill”? Maybe “Thanks But No Thanks” or “Hard Pass” would have been more appropriate; at the very least, those names would be realistic portrayals of the public’s

My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize. He would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds...pretty standard, really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum; it's breathtaking. I suggest you try it.

I don't think we had a single question about sports on the quiz tonight. It's a welcome respite. Though there were plenty of folks who wanted to see who would win when England and Japan soccered. I guess it's Japan.As one team commented, "You can't ask us about Ben & Jerry's in Texas! Where are the Blue Bell questions?" I feel your pain but we may just have to get used to the inevitability of B&J's taking over. They've never had deadly bacteria or whatever be a recall cause.Round Two was a few teams' favorite round.

Hello Wagner’s Backyard!     I have been a Quizmaster with Geeks Who Drink for more than four years now. In that time, I’ve launched several new venues. The first night at any venue is always strange, because there’s so much that has to be figured out: how does the sound system work? Where do we set up? Do you have the supplies that were sent to you for us? And so on. I don’t think I’ve ever had a first night go quite so smoothly, and that’s entirely because Wagner’s, as I’m sure you already know, is badass.   Thanks go

M's tix means three big ways to win big!
Colonel Chase

Two bigs ways to win big last night at Charlie’s - one was for Mariner’s tickets, one for big cash money! (Or a gift card) We started with the most very current events I could think of. This included the Greek troubles, Windows 10, and of course all the jiggery-pokery I could muster. On the sonic highway, we took several songs as our mode of getting there. Whether by boat, low rider, walking, flying or running, we had the navigation from Kravitz and more. Ice cream is pretty good, and instead of summarizing the round on Ben and Jerry flavors, I’m just going to eat some. (Eating ice cream) Round five good too. Musicians in bands who

Retired Colonel, full-time Quizmaster.

The story of Quizmaster Chase is a long and arduous one. One that stands the test of time and also serves as a cautionary beacon to others. 

Quizmaster Chase grew up deep in the heart of a pre-Twilight Olympic Peninsula. A land of trees and mountains and water, and apparently also a land of quizmasters. At that age when most children do, Quizmaster Chase left the family homestead and headed towards Seattle with nothing more than a napsack and a dream. 

Dazzled by the bright lights, the country kid made his way through University and a professional career before finally achieving the highest rank in the military, that of Colonel. Once a Colonel, Quizmaster Chase was able to live his dream of traveling across the Pacific to Japan on a goodwill mission, as well as serve as a non-official envoy to Europe during a brief tour just prior to the United Kingdom's General Election of 2010. Quizmaster Chase also serves as a senior advisor on beverage matters to several local governemnt entities in the state of Hawai'i. 

While residing near Seattle's Lake Union (for a quick seaborne escape if need be) Quizmaster Chase enjoys the fine world of microdistilleries and their wares, the interplay between water and land, and his trustworthy dog Jack.

Update: most of this is not accurate anymore, but Chase is even more awesome now that he runs Olympia.
