Duh! This Sounds Easy!
Stevie D

First, packed freaking house.  Stealing chairs from all corners around the bar just so people can sit.  The late comers had the best seats in the house, literally.  They sat in the Office chairs they had upstairs.  I think that had chair races at one point....not sure who won.....I guess everybody won with that little excursion. Next, Round one: Duh! This was a round that was supposed to be easy.  The obvious answer was usually the answer (Ohio river is between Kentucky and where..... for instance) Well, apparently nobody in the house got the memo. The average score was 4 on this round as it kicked their collecting

Civic Duty
Charles

Guess what I did this week?  Jury Duty is super boring.  I mean, maybe it could have been exciting, but I didn't get picked for nothing.  Yeah, sure, it happened to fall on my days off, but I'd really rather give the money back for the opportunity to sleep in.  I'd have loved the chance to get on a Grand Jury, I'd indict the shit out of everyone!  If the state won't give me the shot, I might have to go vigilante on this piece.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  Don't tell me that "Gyro" is pronounced "Hero" or some shit, you ever seen meat spin around on a Heroscope?   Round Two.

The dreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Happy everything, everybody! So ... good news or bad news first? Bad news, you say? Just out with it? Okay. Okay, here goes: I didn't get everybody's picture because we had some going-off-to-drink-elsewhere taking place during round 8. And I just was not quick enough. College kids on break are fast, you guys. Sigh. I feel just terrible, kind of. Like if feeling terrible was a tincture composed of purified water that had been next to terrible for a while and still retained the memory of terrible and then you add it to a full glass of regular water, that's how I feel: a pseudoscientific smidge of terrible but mostly just hydrated. Kay, we good? Ready for the good news? The good

Aaron's been quizmastering since before you were born. He's occasionally hilarious when he's not being sort of a dick. Things that make him giggle include: Li'l Jon; gamboling puppies; the word "oatmeal." No idea why. He's doing preeeeeetty well for himself, thank you.

It's My Prerogative
dammit kevin

It’s a great thing when people who only have one thing in common (drinking at a bar) realize that they have two things in common (drinking at a bar and wanting to play quiz) and then those people, who barely know each other, combine to form one team. I imagine this is the romantic beginning of many marriages but I doubt it will work out that way for the two guys at the bar who combined forces to create the team Bobby Brown. There was just a little too much miscommunication between them. They had been trying to come up with a team name when, in the middle of Round 1, guy #1 told guy #2 (the guy with the pencil) to write down Bobby Brown. Guy #2 (probably questioning the

Please Leave The Door Open
"Rabies Free Since 83"

Baby, it's cold outside... and inside, if you hold the door open. Shout out to the smokers. You guys are dedicated to go out in 15 degree weather. That's commitment to the craft. Vapers, take notice.  Luke, I'll miss you - but I am also super jealous. Or jelly - as the kids who only knows Britney's version of "My Prerogative" say.  I broke my trivia laptop AGAIN. It took a devastating two foot fall from my desk at work and the hard drive popped out and won't go back in.

Woo Hoo! It's almost Friday! And...I don't have to work, so let me be short and sweet with this so I can get to enjoying my day off!!   Ok, first things first it was packed tonight!! 12 teams with Hardcore Pharmacore taking home first place tonight followed by John Wayne Gacy's Childrens Foundation. There was a team from New Mexico, and a team from Ohio here tonight...any chances they are going to GeekBowl? I bet!! Pretty obscure round 6 tonight with the entire round being made up, and how many answers tonight were Mad TV? Seemed like at least 30.   Good night at the G Spot, can't wait to get back next Thursday because...you guessed it, they are

Lon Lon Ranch: Fury Road
Todd Holloman

Visions of movie nudity danced in our heads at the lastest edition of the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz. We had a rowdy devil’s brigade come out to Dry Ground Brewing to prove that alcohol does NOT kill brain cells. On second thought, alcohol does, apparently, kill the brain cells that store information about “The Kroll Show” and “The Carol Burnett Show.” After being subjected to questions about particles that follow Bose-Einstein statistics and being forced to listen audio clips that included No Doubt singing “Hey Baby” (be honest…you never thought you’d have to hear it ever again, didn’t you?),

I'd call that party a success
TaylorCrane

Last night we celebrated our one year quizaversary out at Elbow Room and we did it in style. By that I mean a cool banner that literally read "Happy Quizaversary" (thanks Nicole) and tons of party hats that surprisingly a lot of people wore. I really didn't think anyone would because party hats are really uncomfortable. You guys wore them like troopers though. I also gave away a bunch of dumb little prizes like a whoopee cushion and a keychain that said I pooped today. All the stuff that I know you guys love. There was one thing I did though that should show you how very much I appreciate all of my quizzers. Its no secret that I am not very fond of Disney movies.

"I don't know whether to boo or cheer."

The Shit Creek Boys are dead. Long live the Shit Creek Boyz! Suddenly anything is possible, and with so few sports questions, it seems like success is in everyone's reach. But then there's a big round on movies and parody shows, and everyone's all, wtf is happening, why is this 16 points. But rising above was first place, I'd Buy That for a Dollar, and the second place, Two Black Holes Banging Together Haven't Been Talked About This Much Since YOUR MOMS, which took me a while to figure out.    Best Team Names Shit Creek Boyz Gravity can't melt

Beware of Brain Cloud
Patsquatch

Some nights after quiz I sit down and blaze through the blog. Other nights, like tonight I just stare at the screen and have no idea what to write about. I could bitch about Valentine’s day being stupid or I could talk about how badass Deadpool looks but I think on a night like tonight, I am going to just recap and call it a night. It was a pretty rough night for some teams tonight although there were some impressive late game surges thanks to round six being a 16 point round. Round 2 was kind of weird given that teams had to name either the band or solo act that performed the song. ITunes went out of its way to be a dick which made it all weird. No one knew that the song by

The Blue Screen Of Death
OwenBallard

Ladies and gentlemen of Fuzzy’s Tacos, I must say that it was an honor hosting trivia for you even though it was, by a wide margin, the worst experience in my long trivia hosting career dating all the way back to the summer of 2013.This experience might have been the wake-up call that I needed to finally migrate my 150 gigs of music to my new computer. The only thing that made the night slightly less agonizing was when I got to reminisce about living in Austin with the beautiful bartender. We had a total of 9 teams play the quiz tonight but 4 of the teams only played a few rounds. Our third place team was JOHN IS DEAD TO US who finished with a final score of 70 points. JOHN IS

I was born in Clear Lake, and later graduated from Deer Park Schools. After high school, I graduated from the University Of Texas in Austin with a degree in Economics. After messing around in Austin till 2011, I decided to return to Houston where I continued to mess around till this day.

I like to consider myself a trivia enthusist/expert, especially with regards to music, Star Wars and the Simpsons (the latter two of the three I know more about than I do about anything). 

Come down to The Den Campus Pub on Wednesday at 7:30 for marvelous prizes, gift cards, and your chance to win some free drinks. 

If you are an idiot, then bring smart friends.

Zoolander 2!!! What? Is there another movie coming out this week?
ShadCampbell

DEADPOOL!!!  Ok I’m done.  I figured we would have a fraction of the teams we did because of Deadpool and…well, Zoolander 2.  I do want to see Zoolander, but I can wait for it to stream.  Now Deadpool…I am going to see as soon as I can.  No spoilers people, please, it maybe a week or so before I can see it.   We started the night out with Duh!!!, enough said.  Round 2 had to be the easiest in a while.  We even gave you a choice on the artist.  Pick one.  Round 3 was another round that gave you a 50 % chance, it was all about US Geography.  Before we took a break there was a round on keys, wallets and

First Anniversary
Gallifreak

Tonight marked our first anniversary quiz at Sherlock's. That's right! It's actually been an entire year already. I am thankful for every week that they've let me play in their sandbox. They are a fantastic staff that always makes us feel welcome. I look forward to every quiz, each and every week. It was especially nice to see a team of some of my longest running quizzers. On various teams and combinations, Farelle, Brian, Mitch and Amanda have quizzed with me off an on for pretty much the entirety of the 5.5 years I've been at this. So yeah, it was a wonderful surprise when they came out to quiz tonight. We had a fun round tonight involving nudity. Pretty

McScuse Me, Bitch?! If you haven’t seen this video, you need to watch it now. But in the meantime, so tonight, I pulled into the Greenhouse Bar parking lot, and was surprised to see that there were lots of spaces to park in. Normally, by the time I get there, I sort of have to creatively “make” a space for myself. But not tonight. And so, I thought to myself, “maybe tonight will be a slow night…” Famous last words. As it turned out, we had the most teams EVER participating tonight. A whopping total of 23 groups of friends, loved ones, and beer lovers fought it out to be the
