Krusty Krabs for Everyone!!
Jam Sammich

SpongeBob Square Pants... It's the one cartoon (I guess next to The Fairly Odd Parents), that I unabashedly laughed reeeeeeeally loud at when I'm watching it. In particular, I still remember when I was 15, watching an episode that was where SpongeBob was teaching Squidward how to blow fancy bubbles. I laughed so incredibly hard when it came to Squidward's breaking point and he started screaming into the bubbles. I totally lost it and ugly laughed in a room full of people.   My non-fear of what people thought of me while I really committed to my laughing hasn't changed a single bit. I pride myself of laughing straight down to my toes when

Bonus Points for Punks
Radius

Tonight's quiz was a calm and collected one. Actually, despite having a smaller group of quizzers this week (due in part to July 4th lucky ducks scooting off to the Bahamas, no doubt), they were pretty rowdy. I had a few wooooo's thrown in, some song requests and plenty of callbacks while it was answer time.   The Cow Jumped Over the Blue Moon struck a sponsorship deal with Dan, who was the promo gentleman for Blue Moon this evening. A few free pint glasses made their rounds and this group of guys took advantage. They had prime real estate for the quiz (right up front), prime real estate to chat with Dan (right next to the

Hello, Internet!

Darius is originally from New Jersey, so please keep that in mind when he talks about his love for 24-hour diners (garlic bread and chocolate pudding is a typical order). Some of his favorite things include dogs, zombies, and snickerdoodle cookies.

You can usually find him with a stout in his hand and scruff on his face. Darius likes to make YouTube videos and do theater things, too. Despite his super tough look, he's kind of a sweetheart and will most likely melt if you pay him a compliment. Keep paper towels handy.

Quizzing 2: Electric Boogaloo
Thomas

The second night of the GWD pub quiz at James River Brewery was a rowdy one. Unlike last week, when the rains kept all but the bravest at bay, we started this night with nine teams. In addition to the growing crowd of people, we added a second dog to the mix – despite learning that they're one of the three most deadly animals in the United States. Some history was dredged up that many would rather leave in the past, namely Oingo Boingo and some unseemly incentives from the New Orleans Saints. And I learned that I can do a mean Johnny Cash impression when I've got a cold coming on.   In

4th of July Eve Eve
"Rabies Free Since 83"

Day off Friday = Happy Thursday Night! With no work the next day, even Cris and Chris made it! (they're usually not there due to the lives of a cop and a lawyer - real life Law & Order) Kelvin had an amazing trifecta of drinks (see photo): Gatorade, a beer and whiskey. I read the drinks as, "I'm hungover, but hair of the dog... no forget it, I'll just get drunk (again)." Kelvin and Chris were happy to be reunited (see other photo). Rohaan's team had a terrible night (quizwise, not funwise, they never don't have fun) as shown in the 3rd picture of them looking sad. Trump jokes and team names could be found around all night.

Two Years
The Dave

This week's quiz was, essentially, my two year quiziversary. I hosted my first ever quiz at Charlie Hooper's on 7/3/13, but the important fact there is that it was the Wednesday before the 4th of July that year.   That was last night. I've been doing this for 2 years.   That means I'm closing in on 100 quizzes with you fine people. There've been a few weeks where we haven't had quiz in a particular week, there've been a few quizzes where I couldn't make it and had a sub, but for the most part over the past 104 weeks I've been here every week. That's a lot of damn Hooper's.   And I've loved every damn week.   A

Yes, Nelly Furtado is Canadian!
Micah

Round 7 was Canada-themed, so the lovely quizzers and staff at Nicolo's Pizza were treated to ALL CANADIAN MUSIC, ALL THE TIME! Once again, you're all welcome. The highlight of the night, for me, came towards the end of the night as a quizzer came up and asked, "Yo, is this some more Canada shit?" And yes it was, as Nelly Furtado is as Canadian as they come!     Nobody watched Stacked. No idea how it got a second season... maybe because Christopher Lloyd was in it ("Great Scott!"). Its last five episodes went unaired, except in the UK, Israel, and Switzerland, so there's that.     Props

I'm also a huge David Letterman fan, having seen the show live 20 times before its end, so this is a tough time for me. I don't wanna talk about it.

Cousin Chet

Canada Day. It’s the holiday you didn’t know existed because you don’t know anyone who is Canadian. Yes, it’s truly a great day for our neighbors to the north who sure love themselves some middle school melodrama. And yet we decided to celebrate the day with two of their least valuable exports; Dan Aykroyd and Pamela Anderson. Now as I posed to you last night, one of these people legitimately believes in the legend of the crystal skulls and the other willingly fucked Tommy Lee. So really, which one is crazier? One of them shills vodka shaped like a skull and tried his damnedest to make Ghostbusters a pie of shit before Harold Ramis could save it. The other one

Happy Canada D- eh?
ChristopherRounsville

Although they have everything else going for them, they still sadly have the lousiest first two words of a national anthem (based off our national anthem, theirs....and that's pretty much the limits of my national anthem knowledge).  I mean, I just sounds like they don't really give a hoot.  It's just... Oh. Canada.  Lame. The heat was, and continues to be on, both inside quiz and during the day.  I usually feel that once the weather is brought up, the conversation has totally died and the only thing that the people involved with the conversation have to offer one another is that they both have been conscience recently, and noticed the world around them.  Not

Team: Welcome to Errf kept up a mighty fight (leading most of the way), but only missing the second spot by just one vote!

The Janus Comedian: Dan Aykroyd
RESII

To honour Canada Day, round seven was all Pam Anderson and Dan Aykroyd.   There is a ying and yang to Dan Aykroyd. He has starred in some of the greatest films ever but he is also batshit insane. One of the best comedies ever is Blue Brothers. It has everything: huge musical numbers, great lines, and a buttload of car pileups. Aykroyd also wrote and starred in Ghostbusters, another tremendously entertaining movie, although I prefer the second one, with Aykroyd also wrote with the late, great Harold Ramis. I find it odd that Aykroyd would write himself as the second banana to Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman. But that is far from the weirdest thing about

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

It’s so awesome when you guys make The Canterbury a packed house. You were a fun and enthusiastic crowd, and it was my pleasure to be your Quizmaster. We started out by making sure you were up on current events. We tested your knowledge of a pretty eclectic collection of tunes. We made a rough estimate as to how much Ben and Jerry’s you ate in 2014 (most of you clearly at more than me!). We had a round on crustaceans and a visual round on non-front-persons for famous bands. We found out that America’s Not So Special, we quizzed about Canada’s finest citizens (Dan Aykroyd and Pamela Anderson), and we tidied everything up with Random Knowledge.   Hall

Magic Mike Can Su... Uh, Well...
Jason

I host on Wednesday nights. For some reason, the movie folks in Hollywood thought that Wednesday would be an excellent time to release not only Terminator: Genisys, but also Magic Mike XXL.   Let's just say parking was a BITCH last night.   I figured most of my quizzers would be getting their "I'll Be Back" on, but lo and behold we had a whopping 16 teams play through all 8 rounds. What can I say? I love summertime, when people feel better about getting drunk on a Wednesday while listening to me babble on about crustaceans and ice cream flavors and how America's Not So Special.   I live and work (and expect to continue to do both)

It's not very often at the Marco Polo that we get 5-out of-7 teams that are brand spanking new to GWD, let alone a few teams that seemed prime for an upset. But that's what we got on yet another sweltering Seattle summer evening. And yes, 88 degrees it Seattle might as well be the surface of the sun as far as I'm concerned!

Hey gang, what's news? Thanks for joining me for another fun time evening of pub quizzin'. Nice to have some fine weather after last week's apocalyptic storm eh? Had a real barn burner tonight, as we went into the final round with all teams holding on to their joker and all in contention for the win. Ultimately Hope-ing For a Win did enough in the final frame to hold on, while Texas Turd Cutters broke their tie with Trisham Wow to take the silver. This was the first Ive heard about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. If you're as in the dark as I am, evidently it's a play(?), and you can read more about it here.
