Guy Fieri Is Not A Douche
Adrian

Cut Guy Gieri some slack. I know it's easy to make fun of him, but I think there's something important to what he does. All he wants to do is show us how much easier it is to eat good food when you toss aside preconcieved notions of what makes food good. It’s an important culinary thesis statement that says there’s nothing necessarily wrong with enjoying your upscale, diverse, finer foods (he did, after all, go to a French culinary school); Guy’s just here to show us how sometimes not only is it okay to eat a meatball sub and chili fries cooked by a four-foot-tall octagenarian lady in a town that’s home to a few thousand people; it’s an essential part

How do other Quizmasters think of such clever titles?
Thomas J. Brown

When you lose to a team named Fuk Skule, you know you need to step up your game. Unfortunately, to the perpetual shame of all of last night's teams, Fuk Skule took first place. They were closely followed by newcomers Pink Flamingos, and Alcohol of Fame rounded out the top 3. Also, Fuk Skule managed to get 15 of 16 available points in Round 2, which is something I don't often see—and as someone who almost never knows any of the answers in Round 2, I was quite impressed. Two of our teams had Donald Trump themed names: Berning the Trump and Dancing with the Stars: Crumpin' with

What it is, Copper Lounge? Thanks for yet another fantastic turnout tonight! 2016 has been consistently on fire! 10 teams?! I'll take it!

We're giving away what?!?
Weapon Z

We had a huge special guest in the Beirhaus last night. Kelly from Leinenkugal Brewing made a surprise visit and was giving away all sorts of goodies. She was buying a ton of beer for everybody. Giving away shirts, hats and beer cozies. But the biggest surprise was the drawing for 2 lift tickets to Copper Mountain! Jim was the lucky winner of the ski passes! Well done Jim. Huge thank you to Kelly for coming out and getting the crowd heavily intoxicated. Next time we’re gonna get you behind the mic. How about a recap of quiz from last night? Round 1 had some impressive scores to start the night off as I asked about things that start with

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

Lines on Ale (1848), by Edgar Allen Poe (1809 – 1849)

Filled with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away.
What care I how time advances;
I am drinking ale today.

You know what they say, when the cats away… The mice will play!  And with 20 teams at the Denver Bicycle Café last night there was no shortage of teams to play against.  Normally when I sub-QM somewhere I’m a little apprehensive about what I’m walking in to but not last night, not at the DBC.  As a FREQUENT player and most recently, the fairly regular score keeper, I knew that the teams would be welcoming and that the wait staff would be amazing and last night was as a testament to that.  So THANKS!

Super Bowl Eve

Once upon a time there was a team that wore orange and blue. They were named after a wild horse. They had a quarterback who deserved to win a Super Bowl. And then they went to the Super Bowl. But that's not 'til tomorrow! Tonight is quiz! Thanks for remembering. And for being here. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: The team with “Ben” in its name did not include Ben.

Katherine (also responds to Kat) has been a geek who drinks since before she knew it was a thing to be. You'll find her subbing and quiz-master-ing 'round the port of Denver...other interests include every outdoor sport going, and community theatre. If you've played both Kate and Petruchio, you can't help having a nickname like theshrew. On happier notes, her horse Sparky (pictured) is finally with her in CO, which makes her a much happier and more easygoing quizmistress. Lucky you.

Hey there, quizzers!Great night tonight! Stephanie was out tonight for her nephew's birthday, so QM Gerald stepped in to scorekeep. And as you may have noticed from his Giant Dark Spot on Uranus joke, he is a Pretty Fun Guy.We started the quiz with Round 1, Q is for Quizmaster, in which every answer started with the letter Q. Harley, Brady, and Pat all have the last name Quinn. Stephen Fry just left QI. Apparently I have no idea how to pronounce "Quixotic."In tonight's music round we heard songs and artists whose names sound like games. I'm sure Huey Lewis would be a liiiitle upset that you confused him with Chubby Checker, but at least you all recognized

A is for Angela Merkel because she’s badass. B is for Bunny Ranch Brothel. ‘Nuff said. C is for Cloud Gate. Because no one calls it that. It’s The Bean. I’m from Chicago, I know these things. No one calls it Cloud Gate. Oh, and C is also for Chicago. D is for Dominoes. They are a game. Just like Clapton is not. E is for EPCOT. When saying that Walt Disney World was an acceptable answer, I was met with minor dismay. Just as well. No one put that down for an answer anyway. I not sure why I even mentioned it. Must have been channeling Buckminster Fuller. F is for Fixed-gear. Standard fixed-gear. One. G is for G. Specifically

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

Birthday Quiz Vol. 27
DJ ROB ROB

Another super week at The Ute and Yeti! It was special for several reasons: 1. It was my birthday quiz. The official day was technically yesterday, but it was certainly close enough to warrant a giant fun time with lots of cool prizes given away to a bunch of teams. Dart guns, bubble guns, Star Wars themed bubbles, Hot Wheels...basically anything you can get at a dollar store. Not that I'm cheap. They're just fun. 2. It was another MASSIVE week with 19 teams packing the house. I'm so stoked that people are having fun at quiz every week enough to come back more and more. I try to make it the most fun and I like to see these

Geoff (like Chaucer)

What a night!  After last week's craziness, I was happy to settle down a little bit and just do a quiz instead of herding cats.  And I got my wish.Nine teams came to Darwin's Theory tonight intent on winning it all.  Our questions tested their knowledge on words that start with Q, televangelists, vacuum cleaners, and bad plans.  We also tested out a new round format where you could write two answers for a chance at one point or one correct answer for two points.  That one was interesting.  We also quarrelled and quibbled over the proper name for landmarks across the world.Tonight's winner was Ebony and Ivories with a solid

GEEKS.  I enjoy role-playing games, listening to music, and video games.  Reddit is my bread and butter.  I know a lot about a lot of things.

WHO.  Military veteran, computer expert.  Young at heart, sarcastic to a fault, and funny.  I hope.

DRINK.  I don't drink often, but when I do, it's usually a beer.  I drink shots on special occasions only.  I am known to sing karaoke at times.

Thursday’s quiz was well attended, despite impending snow. Regulars the Irish Greaseballs, Wildcats - rawwr! and 3-4s were joined by new-ish-comers the 4 Amigos. The 3-4s lived up to their name by playing only 3/4 of the rounds, taking 4th place. Wildcats - rawwr! took 1st in points, but were DQd from official first place due to too many brains! So the 4 Amigos got 1st place prize, and the Irish Greaseballs finally placed after weeks of juuuust not quite.   I told y’all at the beginning of the night that I was really

The Discreet Charm of Petite Abille
Vaughn

Wednesday marked a couple of firsts for me, it was my first night subbing and my first night hosting at Petite Abille and let me tell you I enjoyed the entire evening.  It was a rainy/snowy night in the city so the crowd was a smaller than normal. It was also a bit less rowdy than my normal venue but there was no obvious difference in energy.  I still get goosebumps when I see people’s eyes light-up after I announce that we’re doing pub quiz and I hope that feeling never goes away.  Before I get too far into this I want to thank Regine Mont-Louis for letting me sit in for her and let her know that everyone missed her and they want her back ASAP.  Favorite

  • Playing competitive air guitar.
  • Flopping Magic cards with the other dorks.

What a night! What a pub quiz! What a day since then... A very calm start belied the flurry of activity to come, but who could have known that when it was just Matt and me sitting around at five until seven. Thankfully, the fine folks of Scottsville are nothing if not punctual, and by Seven on the dot the stools were full and we were ready to roll. This week's was a trickier quiz than most, testing our collective love for the Food Network and those damned current events. Who has time to read a newspaper, anyway!? Those two rounds were, however, broken up by a more familiar round two than usual, though no less annoying. I forgot how much Sugar Ray loved their crappy

When not plying my trade as a cidermaker, I'm making myself right at home hosting the weekly quiz at the James River Brewing Company. A resident of the tiny town of Scottsville, you may see me wandering the streets or aimlessly floating down the James River when I'm not reading quizzes or making cider.
