"1,051,200 minutes" doesn't have quite the same ring to it
Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

Two years.  A glorious two years we've been doing Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Dante's Fire.  First and foremost, I want to give a huge shout-out to Jon (the owner) for bringing us in, and for keeping us around for all this time.  Also, I'd like to profusely thank the staff that have taken good care of us all, hosts and quizzers alike for all that time!  You kids all rock!  Of course there wouldn't be quiz without quizzers, so many words of thanks to you all as well!  There's almost always a healthy amount of sass thrown around each week and honestly, that just makes things all the more fun.

Note to Self: Next Week, bring Duct Tape...

...for those patrons that just can't grasp the whole "Don't shout out the answers" rule.  I have ways to make you remember. *wink, wink* Really though, tonight was a lot of fun.  My first night with no back up, and I feel like things went pretty darn well.  I had a great crowd of quizzers, including the lovely ladies of the BiPolar Express who returned after being with us last week.  Team I Wish I Was Smarter and team Jamison were celebrating a birthday and were definitely the two most vocal teams in the lounge. Team NannyKat knew they would have to bail early, but played hard during their time with us. Team Low Expectations were a little late to join us half way

Greetings Glass Half Fullers! It’s me, your friendly neighborhood baby-dangler bringing you tonight’s action-packed blog. Why action-packed? Because not only is this blog about tonight’s tiebreaker-ending quiz, but because I’ve just spent the last ten minutes playing today's Google doodle, dedicated to Eiji Tsuburaya, the creator of Godzilla and Ultraman! I defy you to not to have fun spending a few minutes playing the mini-games in the doodle. I’ve never been so close to making my own monster movie. It’s

We had a fun time this evening over at the Draft House! The rain- and the ceiling! - couldn’t hold us! Team Name TBD took the gold today, making an impressive win, with a slightly less impressive name. But that’s ok! Call me biased, but I happen to think We Love Vanessa had the best name. Too bad there are no points awarded for that. Nine Inch Males, you guys made me wonder if that was a Magic Mike reference, a music reference, or maybe just wishful thinking? And Quiz Quiztofferson, well, no need to explain that, and you killed taking second place. Meanwhile, The Regulators- great job on not being

Take My 50 Cent Away
AdamFedyski

Can you believe that the rapper 50 Cent is 40 years old? It kinda makes you wonder how long you could live after getting shot nine times, don’t it? If you just take a few minutes to listen to “Candy Shop”, it will help you remember what it sounds like when a creepy man gets a little older. Love him or hate him, he was ranked as the third best selling rapper last decade behind Eminem and Nelly according to Billboard, the authority on all things related to music. So take that for whatever it’s worth… We had some tough rounds tonight. Whether it was talking about the city of Berlin or connecting famous initialisms with guys who

So much to talk about from tonight's quiz y'all.  First off, the air conditioning is fixed!  We were all sweating our balls/ladyballs off last week in the sweltering heat of the last days of June.  This week the AC was back in working order, except it was a cool 62 degrees and wet all evening.    And speaking of AC, only one team out of sixteen this evening gave the proper first name of AC Slater of Saved By the Bell Fame.  AC is not a name folks, those are initials.  Save that shit for the before and after initials round.  Never Stick Your Dick In Crazy were the only geeks who correctly answered Albert for the lone point.

We Are Only Human!
Marla Bee

7I watched the FIFA World Cup yesterday and cheered on the American ladies to witness a royal spanking on Japan.  It was awesome, I didn't actually get to see all the exciting stuff in the first half, but I got to see the end and that was great.  Then, today on Facebook I sadly learned that Hope Solo was the perpetrator of some shitty domestic violence on some family members however long ago.  That sucks, and domestic violence sucks in general, but damnit we are human!  I don't think she should be banned from competing in soccer because I'm sure the publicity of the event has been shameful enough and hopefully she hasn't ever done it again.  I think everyone in the

404: Title Not Found
JakeSchwingshakl

It's good to be back in the driver's seat at Puddler's Hall. Dont' get me wrong, I was happy to have Bryan take the helm last week while I was having computer/internet issues. But it's good to be running my own ship. I know these guys don't expect a lot, but consistency is always a good idea. There was a decent turn out tonight given the rain, the fact that everyone is probably overspent and hung over from Summerfest, and the Brewers were playing. Of course the Brewers aren't all that good so that one really doesn't count.  Of course when there are rounds about 50 Cent, Berlin, and the letters B-A-G, who would want to be anywhere else? Granted that's also because the liquor selection

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

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.
