Gung Hay Fat Choy, and other impossibly large words for Callina to say
Callina

Sunday was Super Bowl. After what I thought was an explosive halftime show, my Monday radio waves was filled with Coldplay's "Adventure of a Lifetime", including being everywhere on my drive home from Fuego's. I sorta regret it being in my GWD playlist; this might get old soon. I thought I'd give away a prize to the best team name. This went to team Team. While they only able to join us for a short while, they totally knew how to fill Matthew Perry's hole (hello!).  I was blown away by everyone's knowledge of Lincoln commercials and Lost in Round 3 (...or maybe I shouldn't be blown away by people recognizing the mindless ramblings of Matthew

Panda Race Card
The Dark Lord of All

Yeah it does appear that when you ask people to finish a racist quote they get racist.   Second place was once again snatched by a team who were influenced by the great Sean Connery. Their greatest strength lies in their knowledge of my mother and “an album covers.” Let It Snow knows whats up...   First place was taken by 8====D~~~. In all honestly I'm running out of innuendos, I’m basically shooting blanks now. I mean what can I do with a penis that I haven’t done already. Sign, just wake me when you’re

  I was a vigilante crime fighter when my wife died. I guess this lifestyle wasn't easy being a single father but I found a way to involve my beautiful daughter, Arizona. I was a true family man. When the heat got too hot and the times were too fast I decided to retire.

  Finding myself bored I took up archeology and soon found myself questioning if I could see if I could steal the declaration of independence. I drove angry knowing that I was the ghost rider. I pulled up to face/off with the security guards. I know the guard was a bad lieutenant and I could see what was going to happen next. It was going to be a grind house. I listened to the weather man to make sure I would be gone in 60 seconds but sometimes you need adaptation to make sure you don't receive the kiss of death. Needless to say I failed, in terms of luck I got snake eyes. To this day it is not stolen. The whole event was caught on an 8mm camera and after a quick trip on con air I found myself in the city of angles. In prison I gained the nickname Bangkok dangerous because I was truly a lord of war. Some even called me the ant bully. Time in jail moves slow like the season of the witch.

  What I learned was that you always need to be mindful of trying to steal a national landmark you should bring more that just a hive bees.

An Intimate Snowjob
Mike

This week at McLadden's our quizzers braved the cold and snow to come out and drink away from home. They courageously conquered a whole inch – maybe two! - to come out and prove their mettle. Far be it from me to suggest that this shouldn't be considered much of an accomplishment for New Englanders. Nonetheless, they were the only ones crazy or reckless enough to be out on the streets. At the end of our evening, three teams were left at the top of the mole hill. Third Place went to Mind The Widening Wage Gap. Finishing in Second Place were Areola 51. And our First Place victors this week are Live Free & Bern. Have

Festively Plump Monday
Patrique

The day betwixt Super Bowl Sunday and Fat Tuesday shall henceforth be named...   Festively Plump Monday   All honor this day of kings!   Thanks for coming out Gourdough's! We had a great time trying to stay quiet from a couple shushers, and had a great quiz! Many people got paid and tons of chill fun was had.    We had rounds on Double letters, Sesame St Covers, Sticker boy, and China!   In the end, Pubic House ended up winning but had too many players! But they were super chill about it and y'all should take a lesson from them! So in reality, Quiz

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.

Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.

He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit. 

Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.

Hey there, everyone! Quizmaster Travis here. We had a great night at the Chesterfield. If all goes well, I'll be hosting here the next 60 years or so. So, it's best you come out now and we'll get to know each other.   So what did we learn last night? Other than that the Chesterfield makes a damn fine Manhattan. We also learned that even b-level actors like Matthew Perry can live the rock and roll lifestyle. That doing anything to a James Blunt song is an improvement. That 34-year olds are considered millennials. And that Justin Timberlake was probably paid way too much to imitate a cartoon bear that pretty much anyone can pull off.   Congrats to E=MCHammered

Bernie's Tie Keeps Doubting Dragones At Bay

I knew we were all a little hungover from Superb Owl Sunday, but that will never slow down our feisty bunch of quizzers at Yukon. This week featured another bout in our budding rivalry, Guy @ Bar vs. Other Guy @ Bar. Dos Dragones staked their claim on good seats while angling to better their second place finish from last week. And a new challenger arrived in Bernie’s Hair’m, sounds like a real long shot- I doubt they’ll have a chance against an established candidate ;) Round 1 involved us stuffing Matthew Perry’s hole. And we stuffed it full with handguns, beepers, and peanuts.

Sean-Oh

Okay, so I know this is the Quiz recap from this week at G Street, and I'll get to that. But I've got something I want to talk about first, and that's a man named Daniel Bryan. Tonight he retired his wrestling career, and I've found myself being hit rather hard by it. Now I know what y'all are thinking: "Wrestling? Really? Sean's gettin all sappy over a dude in his underwear pretending to fight other dudes in their underwear?" And yeah, I am. I've only been watching WWE and assorted pro-wrestling for about a year and a half now. Yeah, it's silly, and yeah, it's "not real", but I don't really care. It doesn't try to hide the fact that it isn't real. It's scripted (oftentimes terribly), but

Body Glitter and Justin Timberlake

Hey 400 Rabbits!   So in Round One we talked about things that happened between 1996 and 2000. That was ages 6-10 for me, which, if I remember correctly, was a great time. Roll on body glitter was cool, I listened to a lot of NSync and I rollerbladed basically nonstop. Also in this round we talked about Napster/Limewire/Kazaa. Kazaa was my SHIT. I downloaded so much music and gave my family’s computer so many viruses.   Round Two was Sesame Street covers and I kind of loved it. In Round Four we talked about millennials. Apparently only 40% of

You gotta love ‘em.  I sometimes forget, after 3+ years of hosting Geeks Who Drink, that there are people out there who still don’t know what it is; people out there that don’t know how the game works; people who don’t understand (even after saying countless times) how the visual round and the bonus questions work.  They’re so cute!

In Which I Grumble About That Guy In the Lincoln Commercials, Kinda
Professor D

It’s not often I think to myself, “I need to make sure I got paid for that Darth Vader gig so I can put that money toward my unicycle lessons,” but today is one of those days.   Does anyone else remember that old browser game Dope Wars? The one that you surreptitiously downloaded to the school computers that you could play whenever the teacher stepped out of the room? It’s the reason I learned that Special K wasn’t just a cereal.   Speaking of drugs, that reminds me of Dazed and Confused, which my wife was just watching, and that takes me to Matthew McConaughey (I’m fairly certain that’s how his name is spelled,

I had to start with a sports joke title, because there was a team with a perfect name for that. And because it is all over my Facebook so I now feel like a goddamned expert on United Statesian Football. More sports! Quiz sports! While Quizards of Oz dominated the night, there seemed to be a concerted effort by QoD and Drinking Team w/a Trivia Problem to keep Super Bowel Movement from being on top. In hindsight, not a bad idea, no one wants that above them. What if it fell? Gross. Tom, Crow & Gypsy made their wise-cracking presence known and finished in their

My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast.
