White Chocolate Cream Ale
Jules

What a fabulous crowd tonight! If we get any better, we’re going to have to take over that other bar next door. A special shout-out goes to the team that joined us from the “oh oh 27”, as well as the guys all the way from Arkansas. You know…that dark state that doesn’t have Geeks Who Drink. Weird, right? We played some They Might Be Giants, and I even got my Harry Potter reference. Always a good night when that happens. And we drank all the beer – the bar has a White Chocolate Cream Ale that is….just….amazing. Smooth and not too hoppy. And not too chocolatey. Yum. My favorite part of the whole night was when the

No, It's YOUR Birthday
The Duke of Allston

Where were you the first time you heard 50 Cent?  For me, it was when he was the guest rapper on a remix of Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Gonna Be Alright," a single from near the end of her 1999-2003 serious hitmaking run.  Yep, J-Lo finally took a break from recording remixes with Ja Rule.  Fiddy was supposed to be a great savior of hip-hop, but four years later, he had become an afterthought.  Now he just lives off of his Vitamin Water money and throws awful first pitches at Mets games.   "In Da Club" is still my jam, tho, so we showed our appreciation for Fiddy (Mr. Jackson if you're nasty) on this, his 40th birthday.  Chicago Ian

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.

Ready Quizzers
Alison C

So I started a book yesterday at my 5th of July party out in Fort Worth. I managed to find a stopping point last night (my weakness; I don't like stopping a book once I've started) but I knew, I just knew, that I wouldn't have time to finish it before quiz tonight.   You all should know the struggle it took to get up and get to quiz tonight simply because I only have 50 pages left in Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and it's one of the most FUN books I've read in a long time. In fact, I wrote this blog post during a scoring break because I wanted to be able to go home and just read. #TheStruggle   This book just so happens to be the shit. I recommend

Apart from two misguided years in my youth, I've been a tried and true Texan all my life.

Here's a little bit about me: 

  • Shamelessly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, Supernatural, film, and BBC Sherlock.
  • Did gymnastics for 9 years...and yes, I can still do a flip.
  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!

So come swing by and say hi!

Messing with the substitute teacher
Thom Cich

Remember back in the day when the teacher was out sick and you had a substitute?  Movies!  Screwing with roll call!  Passing notes!  Other juvenile shenanigans!   Well there was NONE of that Monday night at The Century Grill when I filled in for long-time Quiz Master Joe.  I even went against the typical quiz rules and told the crowd they could mess with me.  I guess it was reverse psychology.  I did receive one tongue-in-cheek middle finger when going over the rules but that was about it.  No one even worked up the sack to chuck a paper airplane my way.   Not that I'm complaining.  I like a focused crowd

It's an odd thing
Amanda

I guess I can understand where Alfred Hitchcock was coming from when he said that bagpipes sound like a pig. I can honestly never say that I've found them relaxing or enticing. If they are played well then they are alright but bad bagpipes is really bad. You know what else is really bad? Getting shot. I can't believe that 50 Cent was shot 9 times. Like how does one survive getting shot that many times? I guess if you were shot 9 times in the leg you would be alright but I highly doubt that is where he was shot.Tonight The Flabby Wombats came in strong and stayed strong but Corky wasn't too far behind them. I'm still surprised

Selfie Spree
Sweet T

Man, I got a little out of control this weekend at the 4th of July bonfire. But not in the usual "drink a fifth of whiskey in an hour, vomit in the back yard, pass out in a hammock for the bulk of the party and get woken up by the fireworks" way.Nope, this time I had a smartphone. So what did I do? Took a million selfies.Now I'm not one of those old cranks who thinks these millenials and their smartphones are ruining everything. Technically I am a millenial. I'm just usually way too self-conscious to take a bunch of pictures of, well, myself. But this weekend the shame-gloves were off. I can see the allure, because as long as I'm making funny faces, and taking the pictures with

Tullar You Heard It From Me
Worst Corey Ever

I found myself today hosting at Battery Park in lieu of the great John Tullar. Amongst the crowd was a family from Minnesota (Barden Party) who happened to hail from one town away from my high school home town, a team of travelers staying at a nearby hostel (The UN), their fun guide from the hostel (Solo Dolo), a team that showed up late and didn’t place at the bottom (Poop Leader & His Turds), my favorite team name despite mediocre performance (Jack-King Off Suit) and our two teams of serious quizzers (Bill Cosby Drugged Her and Moooooooo).
[ ...more... ]

WARNING: The following is top secret. It will most certainly stay that way, as nobody is ever going to read it.

I know everything there is to know about me. Nobody knows more about me than I do, and most likely nobody ever will. If I were a pub quiz, you would fail.

I am a recovering midwesterner on my ninth step (seeking apologies from everyone who was responsible for my being in the midwest as long as i was). I'll soon be moving on to the tenth step, where I take inventory of how my own actions made such a thing possible.

I am a (mostly) proud BU Terrier (I say mostly because though our hockey team is good, I'd never say I'm proud of them) with a degree in business (the highest of the classical sciences). Though Quizmaster is what I would consider my "day job" I'm also a CPA in my free time. I know what you're thinking, and NO... I DON'T do taxes. Not all CPAs do taxes. I am one of those who does not.

I do not like eating animal. Nothing against the animals. And nothing for the animals. I just don't do it. Don't ask. Or do. I don't give a shit (see Nick Swardson, All Day, for proper accenting of that last sentence).

I am a fan of penguins, owls, sheep, and dragons. This is because I can draw them at a 3rd grade level. All of my other drawing skills are closer to the Pre-K level.

I am a gamer at heart. Talk to me about Final Fantasy or Zelda. Don't talk to me about Halo, COD, or any other FPS disasters. I'm a classic JRPG lover and will defend the genre to the end of the earth. May the various gods help you when you try to argue it with me. "But I can't see people's heads blow up when I kill them!" "You're an idiot. I win."

I am about 5' 10". I am VERY Caucasian (read pale... not my fault). I am a musician. I am well read in Sci-Fi. I am scrawny. I am mostly happy. I am the warrior. I am not your father's oldsmobile.

But mostly, I am. (I think.)

If Car Wash Can't Get You Pumped Up...
EricBurch

I told you all! I told you it would be sunny this week for our pub quiz! You didn't believe me, but I made it happen. I take full credit. All mine. Because of the gorgeous weather, it brought out a small crowd but one that was filled with only the best of the best. When a team that's won three times in the last six weeks takes last by a wide margin, you know things got crazy. And we had the quiz to match! The writers this week...my goodness. Bagger Vance! CAR WASH!!! Berlin (the trio)! Turkleton! BEFORE AND AFTER!!! Boxing and Harry Potter! These references were basically all a quizmaster could hope for. What a night. Kudos. But the quality rose to

Just Be Honest
QM Kwi

                So I was pulled over the other day for only the third time in my life. It was on my way home from work at night going down Mt. Hope right at that little hill where the entrance to the cemetery is. I was going 40 and the speed limit’s 30 and the cop sitting there rolls out and turns his lights on.                 “Are you f*cking kidding me.” I said to myself. Really, man? Going down a hill? I mean legally he has every right to give me a ticket for speeding, I just happened to be the last in a line of

Where to begin! Well, first things first: MY MOM was on one of the teams tonight, along with my girlfriend, my brother, and his girlfriend. It was like a weird sad nerdy family reunion in a dark bar where I'm also holding a microphone and eating a hamburger. Hell of a quiz. The star of the show by far was second-place team Schutz and Giggles, a group of rowdy young gentlemen who chose Plan B and GWD as their bachelor party destination. Regardless of what that decision says about them with regard to their mental stability, I was honored. All teams played hard, but Where's Eric? took first place on this occasion.

Set Phasers to FREEDOM!

Fourth of July came and went and with it another round of fireworks, scaring dogs and scarring children for life. Thankfully, everyone at the quiz had enough fingers to at least deal with the 50/50 questions and the know how to destroy the BYOBB Round of Death! 8 Teams battled it out for top spaces this week and, while many tried, no one could dethrone A Sean Phillips Joint! It truly was American Freedom at it's finest! Many thanks go out to all the teams and to Evil Czech for making every Quiz Night a rollicking good time!   See You Next Time!Quizmaster Dave

The origin of cats is Libya?
Nami Nami Nami Pants

The origin of cats is Libya?   Now I know a lot about cats – I was a huge nerd about it when I was a kid, back when I thought cats were the shit. I know all of their different breeds, kitty body parts, and behavior odds and ends. Today I am much wiser. I now know that cats are the devil, aka I am a dog person. But of all the years of research and studying that I did that almost led me to veterinarian school, I had no idea that cats A. couldn’t taste sweet B. the majority of fossils could be found in the Libyan Tar Pits.

Whoof.  Fourth of July weekend quiz.  Rough.     I mean, it's rough if, like me, you spent the bulk of your weekend drinking and hardly ever saw your own bed.  Gotta finish it off with a couple of Black Star brews though.  It's mandatory.  Court order.     And I didn't see anyone missing any fingers, or at least not new ones, so I guess everyone had a safe Independence Day!     But enough about the weekend, let's talk about the quiz!  We had rounds on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Talking Heads, and cats--     Oh...

Its tough to get people to come out to a quiz the day after the 4th of July AND on the same night the womens US soccer team has a game in the world cup finals but you know what 4 teams came out. I'm proud of you. It means a lot. It couldn't have been easy. I mean US was up 4 to 1 by the time I got to quiz so its not like you would've missed much anyways. That and it was playing on every tv in the bar, but I totally appreciate your sacrifice. Sometimes people forget that when you sit right in front of me I can totally hear you talking.
