Women Take Over DC, Next The World!
JenKiper

We jumped right into our third year with take charge ladies and hit songs. Green Room was hopping and it was great to see a few long lost friends return for the night along with some newbies there to test their mettle against this week’s quiz. We had some laughs, a few sad moments, but overall, we had some fun to shake off that Monday melancholy. I’m a big fan of women taking charge and leading the way. Last night’s quiz featured a couple of take charge kinda gals…Olivia Pope and Senator Elizabeth Warren with a whole round of wisdom from those smart, politically savvy ladies. Lots of our teams did pretty well sorting out who said what, but when our Senators

Oh, hello there! I didn't see you come in, you surprised me. Welcome to this little blog of mine. It's my tiny fraction of the internet where I get to talk at moderate length about the joyous occasion known as Geeks Who Drink quizzes. So make yourself at home, won't you? My attendance is back up! Woo! Good. You all had me worrying there for a bit. Figured I'd done gone saying something stupid. It certainly wouldn't be the first time I'd do something like that. But in either case, I'm glad to see you all back in my loving arms once again, mon cher. Also, keep this presence going and bolster it for next week as we have our lovely Quiz for a Cause on April 3, raising

New Teams, Two Ties, and a rivalry for the ages!
SecondChild

Holy guacamole! You guys sure like keeping Yours Truly busy!    We had an exciting, face-paced and incredibly jumpin' night over at Bull Feeney's! Ten teams! One more and I would have been out of visual round clues - I'm going to have to start printing more.  Clearly, word of my hilarious puns and excellent taste in deep 90's cuts has gotten around, and Portland came out to play.  It's always a pleasure to see new faces, and so I gave a hearty Geeks Who Drink welcome to The Brewsual Suspects, Team FAM (BAM!), Meri, Off in the Woods, and Gene Belcher's Porsche Cayenne

NOBODY PUTS BABY IN AN OVEN
Chris

So much happens at the quiz each night that I tend to forget pretty much any and all of the questions that I ask over the course of the night. Eight rounds, eight questions each, minus the two rounds of audio stuff and the visual round and you still end up with 40 or so scenarios that I present to the assembled masses, but try as I might every morning the day after I sit here and try to remember pretty much any question and it takes me forever to get the memories in order and settled enough to put my finger on one or two to reference.   Ok, it’s all lining up now. The coffee is kicking in and

Hello there, my Jackpot Bar & Grill Players!   Well, well, well. Not only did we have five teams come out to play our quiz, but we got to celebrate Kenny and April’s Engagement!

Happy Spring Break, Forest Grove! School is out, and you all came out for Pub Quiz. We doubled our number of teams from last week, and you all kept us very busy. The taps were flowing, the fries were frying, and all of that added up to a geektastic night at Ridgewalker.So what did we learn tonight? I’m not the only one who grew up singing along to a song about possibly carnivorous Teddy Bears. Seriously, was Freddy Fazbear at that picnic? Why is it not safe to go in the woods when the teddy bears are picnicking? Who thought that was an okay song for kids?

Elijah

Sometimes you step to the plate and find yourself in a t-ball game, others, you're playing softball, and once in a while you stumble into some major league shit.  Well, tonight was some major league shit. I had quite a few newbs to the game tonight, and they got a crucible by fire. The first round was meat-centric, which was pretty universal. But from there on in we went straight into obscure music, questions about celebrity siblings, and TV shows about characters who were dead before the show started.  Basically, if tonight was a videogame, you were playing on hard mode.

"A Quiz Night at Henry's," or, "I Couldn't Think of a Title"
Jake

Hey, Henry’s Quizzers! What a fun night tonight. I know I’ve said it a million times, but I love new teams – I feel like they bring a new dynamic to the "quizzing floor." (You know, like “killing floor,” but far, far more vicious.) For starters, we had Super Fictional Anime Animals, who took fourth as a first time team. Not too shabby, right? Team name of the night went to the winning team, Luey Hewis & The Fake News. Nice. I love their song “I Want a New Drug (and I will charge the American public 800% more than I used to).” Great song!

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

The More You Know (March 27th).
Ellie

I learned a few things today and also imparted some non-quiz knowledge to one of my teams. First, I learned that hooking your laptop up to a TV is super handy when you want to show people diagrams of cuts of meat, and where they come from on little piggy and cow bodies. Second, no matter how many times you listen to Harlem Shake it is still awesome. That might just be a fact for me though. Taylor Swift can be quoted by all different types of people. Me: I hate Emily Deschanel. Quizzer: Who is she? Me: The chick in Bones. Quizzer: Which one? Me: She’s literally Bones. **Astonishment** Aka, knowledge! I myself learned, there is a 3rd Manning

The B Team Definitely Didn't Come to Play
Megan

After weeks of constant harassment (not of the sexual nature), a coworker of mine finally came out to my quiz. I told her that last week there were only two teams so she’d have an easy time winning if she brought some friends. Tonight all the quizzers must have come out of hiding because HOLY SHIT was it packed in The Company Store. Thank goodness I got there early to get some queso (amazing) and beer, because otherwise I’d be SOL and have to wait like everybody else. 7 teams came out tonight which is a record for this young quiz. My darling coworker teamed up with my lovely boyfriend to create B Team, the worst team I’ve ever had

Falco is Neither Taco Nor Wilco
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Pretty sure that’s a sentence that’s never been assembled in the history of the written word. Dating back to the earliest texts of the ancient Sumerians, there was nary a mention of any of these three bands. I thought I saw a story about Austrian rock star Falco, but it turned out to just be the Epic of Gilgamesh. Boy was I disappointed. When scouring the Old English texts all about Germanic heroism, I was pretty sure I ran across a mention of Dutch singer Taco, but I was again stymied to discover it was an early translation of Beowulf. Just to be sure, I watched the Clint Howard

That would explain the feeling in my… brain.  Tucked in the back of this old stone building is the speakeasy of GWD.  Go upstairs before you get to the restrooms and you will find an utterly delightful brothel, I mean patio for pub quiz.               Which reminds me, I got a slice of Hawaiian pizza which is a coincidence.  Last night I had a dream that I was eating dinner and trying

I met a less famous sibling- here’s the story
A-Fed

This week’s quiz at Prohibition featured a round on less-famous siblings. As an homage, I give you the story of the time I met and hung out with Danny Duchovny (aka David’s older brother). I went on a spring break trip with a couple of my coworkers in southern California. We dubbed it ‘man-cation’ and we vowed to do as many things as possible that we had never done before. We went skydiving, paintballing, attended a beer festival, and much more. Little did we know that this trip would also include hanging out with Danny Duchovny in Malibu. Through multiple degrees of separation (my friend’s dad’s best friend who is also named

When I'm not reading or partaking in Geeks Who Drink quizzes, you can find me at concerts, on stages performing stand-up comedy (including comedy raps), hiding from the city in the mountains, or at King Soopers when I run out of food and don't have enough money to go to Whole Foods.

I love music a whole lot. My playlists will go all over the place and usually stay away from songs you would hear on any radio station.

Any given Monday at Prohibition or Wednesday at Comrade Brewing Co., you can expect to hear Talking Heads, Beck, Spoon, Atmosphere, Jay-Z, Buddy Holly, Louis Armstrong, Alkaline Trio, Ween, Built to Spill, Gramatik, The Avett Brothers, The Kinks, Neko Case, and many more. If you ever have requests, let me know!
