Shakira loves your big butt
Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

To be honest with all of you, I really enjoy it when something vaguely spectacular happens at ze quiz, because at that point the blog pretty much writes itself.  Now, usually I'll relay a few anecdotes, or some other such nonsense, but today I'm jumping right in with both feet.  There was a fucking three-way tie for first place!  It was fecking awesome! So, although it's typically poor form to mention as much, we did have a couple of teams leave before the end of quiz; their scores weren't so good.  However, the reason I mention this is because of the fact that they played.  I guarantee they had no intention of such things when they ventured

Sorry, Frivolous Torts, But Someone On Your Team Has Really Bad Handwriting
Quizmistrix Lalenya

It happens almost every week, but no matter the Scorekeeper, no matter the Quizmaster, they just keep getting entered into the Official Spreadsheet as Frivolous Tarts. And really, isn't that a better name? I know I identify with it more easily. I've never sued anyone, much less just for the heck of it. But have I been a Frivolous Tart? Uh, yeah, have you met me? This week's quiz was graced with not only 15 teams, the super awesome Chris Linn (where the hell has he been?), and the oxford comma, but also the triumphant return of Period Sex!!! Yes, we had Beck and Heinrich in the house, joining William Nye the History Guy, Gary, Gavin, and some dude from New York. For those of you that

Our Inaugural Event
Steve

Howdy, my name is Steve, and I'm a QuizMaster. I'd like to thank you all for coming out to the first Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at the 480 Bar! I had a great time hosting, and I hope you all had a good time being quizzed. Tonight, we learned that trivia and pool can peacefully co-exist, that no one has ever seen the movie The Adventures of Tin Tin, and that either no one in Chandler thinks that 9/11 was an inside job, or there are Truthers but they're too polite to say anything about it.Shout out to The Grimaces for remaining in character for their team photo, and to Team Chozen for the wonderful Kermit the Frog doodles

How I Spent My Summer Vacation
The Duke of Allston

Day 1   Remember in "Dumb and Dumber" when they're driving through the Plains, thinking that they were supposed to be in Colorado, and they say "that John Denver was full of it, man?" I had the same thought on the first day of my annual California adventure. Albert Hammond enjoyed a hit in 1972 with "It Never Rains in Southern California." Yet, it started coming down around 4 PM on Sunday afternoon, and persisted long enough to delay the Red Sox/Angels game scheduled for 5 PM to the next day.   It was not raining during the day, so I spent the afternoon at the best fair I've seen (and I'm something of a connoisseur of fairs), the OC Fair in Costa

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.

Rebecca

Beautiful, swag-filled night at The Forum Puyallup!  We had seven hardcore teams battling for the win.  And it was a good fight!   Round one tested our San Francisco knowledge.  But it was team Almost Strangers who scored a perfect 8. So the Golden Gate Bridge is International Orange?!?   Audio round two saw some big scores and some jokers used.  It was team I Wanted to be Lynn Swan who jumped ahead with a whopping 22 points!  Favorite song of the round? Chicago's You're the Inspiration.  Check it out... it's dreamy!   Round three required some brain work and some power of deduction.

If you think you can’t have a rip-roaring time at quiz with only two teams, you are very, very wrong. Also, Vancouver is to a real place.  And living there means I get to drive the opposite direction of traffic on my way to Yen Ha every Monday.  Now you don’t have to wonder why I always show up with a smile on my face.  Bipolar Express was out to avenge their loss in overtime last week. The high score for round three was a whopping two points. After the first four rounds, it looked like DANTANADRIAN was going to be a formidable opponent.

Ninth Place Is The New First
Chloe

It might not be November but there were plenty of reasons to give thanks at this Monday’s Twisted Pine quiz:   - We had a special raffle tonight. The prize? TRUMP, THE GAME. Because, when you find a Donald Trump board game at the thrift store you have no choice but to buy it and bring it to quiz. Obviously.   - In a glorious twist of fate (or maybe a show of brilliantly executed mediocrity) Maybe 9th Place? came in…ninth. Pure coincidence or not, we were all pretty f*ckin’ stoked about that one.   - It was a bittersweet night for the team members on Take A Little Piece of My Jesus—one

Don’t Forget to Wear Flowers in Your Hair Whilst Quizzing
AdamFedyski

With the number of songs that have been wrote about the city of San Francisco, you had to expect that we would drop a round all about the city and that the questions would be harder than “What’s the name of that there big bridge?” The quiz was far from easy tonight, with the first round requiring knowledge of San Francisco and the third round not being of the 50/50 variety. We needed somewhat of a challenge before Rumble in the Pub gets underway though. You don’t know about Rumble in the Pub?

You Get One Free Murder on Your Birthday

Just remember, you have to use it by 11:59:59pm or it expires. It’s kind of like The Purge that way. Tonight, we had a lot of extra guests joining our proceedings at Glass Half Full, leaving only a scant few tables for people hoping to quiz with us. But never fear! Your intrepid quizmaster is flush with ideas on how to thin a crowd. For instance, playing Aqua’s Barbie Girl ad-nauseum seems to do the trick. Except for one group of birthday lollygaggers… hearing that 1997 pop hit only seemed to incense these birthday revelers.

Jellyfish Really Need to Get With the Program
Patsquatch

Hey there I am Patsquatch, filling in for Mitchicus Mathematicus who was struck down with a vile sickness that has robbed him of his voice. Mitch was well enough to come and play, however, which was both great and disconcerting all at the same time. In a way it was sort of like making out with someone’s girlfriend while looking them right in the eyes. Not that I would know what that feels like as I have never done anything vaguely like that in my life. But I think it would probably feel sort of like that. Mitch was a good sport though and he was cool about it all and at no point tried to beat me senseless, which I would imagine is what he would do if I was actually making out with his

Nun-sense! Or something habit forming
Cupcake

   The other day I was driving up 5th street and I saw a pair of nuns walking down the sidewalk. I did a double take (which they totally noticed, I am embarrassed to admit [ok, not THAT embarrassed because I just did]) because that is not something you see every day! It was a residential area and I don't remember there being any churches or convents around there. Don't nuns live in convents? I guess I don't know that much about nun living situations other than what I've seen in movies or read in books. Maybe I need to do more nun-research! Let's see what I can find... According to Wikipedia (our number one news source for all weird late-night questions:) "A

Did Anyone See The Adventures of Tin Tin?

No.  The answer is no, no one saw Tin Tin.    The atmosphere was a bit subdued on this post-UMS edition of GWD at Historians Ale House.  For the layman, the Underground Music Showcase took place on Broadway in Denver this past weekend, and Historians was just feet away from its epicenter.  I spent some time here myself this weekend soaking up summer beers and the produce section-like spritzer system on the roof.  Many shenanigans took place, much fun was had.    Many of our regular geeks must have been recovering from all the fun.  Eleven teams turned out tonight to scribble for the prizes.  Just a quick PSA

So Many Butts
MarthaZapata

Today I learned that breastmilk cheese is a real thing. I’m pretty curious about it now. I’m sure there is a market for it, no doubt. However, I am curious as to how you can keep up with demand for it. I mean is it just one woman that is giving her breast milk or do you hire multiple lactating women to get the job done? I suddenly have this visual of these women in some back room hooked to pump machines for 12 hours a day or something. What kind of benefits package do you think they would have to offer someone to take that job? Thanks, Obama. I had fun subbing for Scott tonight at The Madrid Lounge.

Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair... Especially If You're Ugly
Sweet T

Tonight at the quiz we learned some fun stuff about the city of San Francisco! Which was a weird coincidence for me because last week I saw Ant-Man and Inside Out on the same day, both of which take place in SF, so it felt like one long fantasy infomercial. They were both really good movies, so now I'm trying to think of other things I like about said city I've never been to; first and foremost, my thoughts turn to the Frisco Melt from Steak 'n' Shake, which, as a good friend of mine once said, "is like God showed me His face, and let me hear His word... and then told me I could eat His face and His word." I do like me a burger (or most sandwiches really)
