Hi, I'm Cletus the forgotten Weasley
Darth Gargamel

You can't just throw out a Dead and George and expect it to all be okay! That wound hasn't healed yet you monsters! Oddly quizzers got upset at that reference, but didn't seem to care about Sparkly Vampire or Colin Creevy. Whatever. This quiz was defintely not for the feignt of heart of Harry Potter fans. Go geek or go home. Most exciting point of the night was when we got word that Sean Biggerstaff might not only be in town, but might swing by. For those who don't know Sean played Oliver Wood in the movies. The irony that a guy named Biggerstaff played a guy named Wood is not lost. Speaking of losers, everyone but Fizzing Quizbee's

Couple things about me: I'm a man, and that means I do man things. I shit with the door open, I go on riverboat gambling trips, I make my own jerky. And now all of that is wrecked!

I lied. Not one of those things is true, but if it impresses you lets stick with it. I'll tell you something that is true though. Clint Eastwood once gave me the finger. True story.

Other things......I enjoy the color blue. I'm right handed, so I've got that going for me. I cannot say the alphabet backwards, even when I'm drunk. Which is a lot. Also I've never been to Oregon. My dreams are but three: 1. To appear on Jeopardy. Cause if we aren't here for trivia, what's it all for? 2. To appear on Drunk History. I got my degree and history, and thus far it's proved useless. Appearing on that show would make it all worth while. 3. To have a sandwich named after me. Who needs a kid sharing your name when you can have a sandwich.

 

Also I enjoy Pinky and the Brain cartoons, and if you talk shit about them or request that I play Kanye music during the game, your team starts with negative 50 points. Your call man.

Tiebreakerus Cerfuflenious
Dave

It was a great Harry Potter quiz. I mean besides the people disliking the “Cursed Child” reference. That was met with odd answer responses… Overall, a two room full bar 135+ person quiz does not go much better. I wish more people would have dressed up in wizard robes. Mainly, because it is so hot out, and that would be great. I saw many a great Hairy Potter t-shirt, but the best costume was from the wait staff. It was great to see her get into it. She insisted I call her Albus. Good times. It went all the way to a Tie Breaker question. My Petronas is a Jedi and Umbridges In-quiz-atorial Squad were tied in the end and then

Playing the Blame Game
Weapon Z

It’s safe to say: the students are out to play.  Krazy Karl’s was packed to the brim last night.  Blame it on the Broncos.  Blame it on how friggin good the pizza is.  Blame it on that Jamie Foxx song that tells you what to blame it on.  Or just go ahead and blame me.  It doesn’t really matter what you blame it on, busy is busy.  And last night it was just that! We had some fun last night guessing at tv shows based on their episode titles.  Well, at least some of you did.  This was one of the more difficult round 1s that I’ve seen in a while.  Big props to Play the Trump Card and Jefferson

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

The Wandmaker A Chapter Name? Or A Bit Of Erotic Potter Fiction?
David

I guess you could say “magic” was in the air…or maybe it was just the fact that I had taken a little cold medicine before the quiz? Hmmm…let’s just go with magic for now…OK? The Glass Half Full was packed to the brimstone with everyone from Hufflepuff to Slytherin and everything in between could be found this afternoon at the quiz. I have to say I was blown away by the turnout and the accoutrements of some of the teams!  We certainly had quite a few Harry Potter fans in the crowd and they let me know when I mispronounced a name or two!  Much like a quidditch match our quiz had its up’s and down, twists and turns but unlike the longest

I'll Expecto Your Patronum... I'm Not Sure That Means What I Think It Means
Andi

We had a blast yesterday at Cassidy’s Irish Pub for our jam packed The Geeky Cauldron - A Harry Potter Quiz!  Questions were tough, but our quizzers pressed on, all in pursuit of our $280 first place prize!  With our venue’s capacity being 90 people, and us having well over 115 people in there, I was closer to my quizzers than I ever need to be.  We had to start turning away players once I realized that there was nowhere left to sit OR stand.

Is That Sword of Gryffindor, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?
VoldeMartini

Hey folks, Quizmistress Katie here, bringing you the fun from our Harry Potter Theme Quiz here in San Antonio. It was hot, it was crowded, and it was ridiculously fun. Now, I’m no casual when it comes to Harry Potter. No ma’am. Hardcore or nothing. Even permanently inking my body to show everyone that my fandom runs into my veins. Which is a sign of a terrible tattoo artist. I don’t think that stuff is supposed to go into your bloodstream. In any case, I had a stupid amount of fun last night. I’ve been planning for this since I heard that there might be a Harry Potter quiz. MIGHT. It wasn’t a guarantee, but it was enough to keep

Hey there, quizzers!The weather was back to humid but dry, and so we were back to packing the house. It is so great that you all came back out for quiz!We started the night with a round in which you had to name the TV show based on some episode titles. Breaking Bad was too easy, but Survivor was a lot less obvious.For the music round, we heard from artists who collaborated with Michael Jackson. You forgot about Lenny Kravitz, didn't you?We then had a delightful Round 3 in which you had to decide if I was describing North Dakota, or North Korea.

The Rhythmic Recitations of the Name “Harry Potter”
Fabrian

I’m not gonna lie, I was straight up dreading this quiz the closer and closer we got to it. If I were to gaze into the Mirror of Erised, it would’ve shown me being given some Felix Felicis before the day even started. Thankfully, there wasn’t any need. It all worked out so smoothly and wonderfully I felt pretty dumb I was ever worried. Backcountry Pizza treated us super well tonight. They let us annex another room for more teams. They are a class act in my book. All the Potterhead quizlings were also great sports about any random hiccup we had. There was some

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

I Had a Nightmare, But My Scar Didn't Hurt So Everything Was Fine
QM Colleen

The morning of the Harry Potter quiz I had a horrible, horrible dream. Here is how it went. I was late for Harry Potter quiz. I looked at clock at home and it was somehow 7:13 so I panicked and grabbed my stuff to go (In my dream the quiz was at 8). My friend from college who does not work for Geeks Who Drink was going to be my scorekeeper because dream logic and I was giving him a ride but Brenna was already there (she was the second scorekeeper). Stopped at Burger King to get food because that's what you do when you're running late in a dream. For some reason, Burger King was also the office where I worked? Like my cube was at a long table in a food court

Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

What a night! We had almost 100 quizzers on 22 teams, our winning team (The Real Housewives of Godric's Hollow) walked off with $240 in cash money (pictured here being held by an adorable stuffed owl), and so many of you came with costumes and wands and time turners to show your Harry Potter fandom! We also had some team names to nominate for Team Name of the Quiz, and those teams are It's MimOsa, not MimoSAAA and Hedwig and the Angry 9 3/4 Inches. We had a lot of clever names, but those two seemed to be exceptionally well done. I also want to give a shout out to the staff at the Cardinal who really stepped up

About As Much Fun At Parties As Mad Eye Moody
Pope Pepe

I can recall being just out of college and living with a friend and his girlfriend. We were splitting a two bedroom, third floor walk up in Rockville, Maryland. My roommate’s girlfriend had brought in a few new books from the bookstore. I had just finished reading Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon, and was hungry for something else. I’m not sure if you’ve ever read that books, but it is a real page turner and a real fright sometimes. If I was alone and reading it, I would have to be sunken into my oversized recliner, making sure no one was behind me. I would periodically look up and look around. It was terrifying. I was looking for something to either top that or help me come

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.
