Thanks to all who came out!  The crowd was less than most weeks, but everyone had a great time.  Some fun rounds tonight... taking us back in time with Indiana Jones, Nicholas Cage and the late, great Roger Moore.  Some awesome beers were added this week... Mustang Beach Cilantro Lime Golden Ale and Tropical Falls Sour are my new favorites.  Come out next Thursday and try one!

Chicharron for dinner!
QuizGentleman Bryton

Alright, another Thursday in the books as we inch closer to summer! Round 7 was appropriate as the forecast in Salt Lake called for rain and lightning on Friday, but it didn't end up happening. At least not where I could see. And we sure learned a lot about UNICEF. Those Trick or Treat boxes have raised over $175 million since 1950. And I've never seen one in real life! It's a cool idea though. Which reminds me, if you work for a charity or non-profit don't forget to check out quiz for a cause right over there>>>>>>>> Also learned a lot about birds nest, the most expensive animal-based food product in the world. I'm going to give bird's nest soup a hard

Correct Haiti Answer Merits Prizewinning Score
Murray

Check it out, Leave Your Final Tip, I can do acronyms too! Plus it’s legible. After a particularly difficult quiz, team LYFT ended up on top due to a very strong final round. Returning heroes Headley Lamar & the #6 Dancers tied newcomer Tigersnatch (Welcome! What an excellent first showing) for 2nd, but Tigersnatch won the tiebreaker (which most decidedly was NOT a dance-off. Deal with it.) Side note to Headley Lamar, things have changed since y’all have been around. There’s some new competition, and none of them were full strength yesterday. Don’t get complacent and, say, disappear for

Alright, guys. Let me be real. I am getting married this weekend, so I am going to keep this short. I fucked up the scores by reversing the joker round number and point total in round two for GM Hoes, who were our rightful winners! You may forget, but I won’t! You will be compensated for my mistake! Last night I learned that my hosting skills are greatly impeded by tiredness, less so than being a little drunk. Welp, you win some, you lose some. Thanks for putting up with my less than stellar performance this

All About Me

Jacksonians,  Consider this my introduction as your Quiz Master. My name is Will, I am originally from Houston Texas and have relocated to Denver about a year ago. I love TV, and Movies, wrote a lengthy thesis about Zombie films. I played football in college, and am a die hard sports fan. My Chicago Cubs finally did it and I got a tattoo, as I promised I would do when I was younger. My favorite TV show is Scrubs, and am fairly well off book on it and the Office.

We Don't Know Movies
Kyle The Arrogant

Greetings and Hail Quizzers, This week the sun was shining but we hunkered down like we do every week in a dark brewery and drank beer. This week our round one was based on movies.  Apparently none of our quizzers this week like movies and proceeded to get very angry at me.  This was repeated again with our video round being even more difficult and about movies.  Combined with the fact that I was interrupting a playoff hockey game with my video rounds was almost enough for a mutiny. Speaking of mutiny, I spent the first few weeks of this blog making sailing puns because I assumed Dreadnought was a reference to the kind of ship.  I was drastically misinformed.

Hello all, I am Kyle and I would love to be your Quizmaster this evening.

 

I have an irrational love for all things nerdy, I am terrible at pronouncing geography, and I tend to go a bit megalomanic on my blog.

 

For any and all further questions, catch me at one of my quiz locations.

I always thought an Okie was a type of Scotch?
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

Does anyone else have those weeks where you feel so self absorbed, that everything else seems like a blur? I had one of those weeks, but it wasn't because there were horrible things going on in my life that I couldn't control, and thankfully everyone in my family is healthy and happy. I even have a kid that made it out alive of his freshman year of high school.   I start a new job next week and after over 7 years at my old place of employment, I am a little nervous for my new beginnings. Not because I think I am going to fail, but because I have not had an opportunity like this, to work so close to home, in a really long time. I;m not really sure what I am going

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

Fernet Branca: Volume 2
Ryan

I’m gonna commit to being un-charismatic today because I had a terribly awful day. I won’t bother going into detail. Me spelling out the details of a shit day is almost the same as me physically shitting in your shoes, only less funny. I have had shittier days in the past, don’t get me wrong, but this one comes with the reminder of all those bad days past. Making this particular day extra heavy. Fuck it. Here is a poem:If a day was worth a shit, you would be able to sleep during its entirety.A day can be so mundane and tragic that you can’t even sleep.

Haaaaappy Anniversary!
Lauren

Let me set the scene for you… I’m in a full-length pink dress, accented w/ rhinestones at the waist. A classy number that’s not quite backless with some strapedoo’s and a halter top. Why was I decked to the 9’s? Because it was our 1-year anniversary of quiz at The Post!!! When it’s black tie optional…. You dress UP, y’all. I feel like normally for a 1-year anniversary, I would receive a single gas station rose and maybe a dinner at Applebee's. But this 1-year anniversary… man alive! I was given the gift of giving. Thanks to GWD and The Post, we had swag coming out the wazoo. We had a raffle after EVERY SINGLE round. Pint glasses,

Quiz is family.
Major Tom

School is out, and my first year teaching high school is in the books! I cannot tell you what an improvement in my life it has been leaving middle school for high school. Even so, it's always great to hit this time of the year. I can have more than one beer at Quiz and stay out late without worrying about how tough the morning will be. We seem to get bigger crowds at Quiz during the summer too, and I really like a big crowd. So, some funny observations about you guys last night. Usually, all the crazy news stories of the week make it into team names. Last night, however, I was amazed that no one had a team name referring to the Montana Representative who beat up a reporter who tried to ask

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Summer Break is here
McFly

 The title of this blog says it all. I have been in dire need for a summer break. This year was a challenging one at my school and I need some time to recuperate. I am hoping to last another year of hosting trivia, but time will tell! Graduation for the 8th grade students was last night and we wrapped up all the loose ends. I actually just got back from a happy hour with my coworkers. It is bittersweet to be in these moments. We look back at what we have accomplished and the people we won't see again. Sad, but true. I've worked alongside many teachers, some of which I haven't seen since that last interaction. Summer is a time for everyone to challenge themselves to be something better.

A Love Letter
Scoretron

I’ve hosted a few hundred quizzes at a dozen or so bars over the last 6 years, and I can say with absolutely certainty that my favorite venue of all of them is Doyle’s. No, this isn’t something I say to all the bars. I’ve hosted at some good venues and I’ve hosted in some shit venues. I think it’s universally-accepted by most of GWD that I hosted at the single worst venue in the history of the company. I won’t mention it by name, even though it is now-defunct, but it was a bar in a Renton strip mall that had a UFC octagon in the middle of the bar that I was not allowed to host from. That alone was lame. I’ve also

Russel Harper was born in the dusty old shithole on the South Puget Sound that you all know as Tacoma. Russ has hosted in such classy venues as Jack's in Renton (caught fire, now closed), the Alehouse in University Place (burned down and recently re-opened), and the Forum in Puyallup (also burned down, waiting to be re-opened). He has sworn under oath that he is not an arsonist (but admits the flames are pretty though). Russ currently hosts at Doyle's Public House in Tacoma on Thursday nights. It has not burned down yet.

Hello Quizgoers!!   Quizmaster Mike here reporting after yet again, another amazing night of Quiz!!   This one was very special as it was our first time ever going into the sudden death rounds to break a tie for first place! However, not only did we do one sudden death round, we had to break into the sudden death questions at the end! Team "Bozeman Bodyslam" and "2014b" were tied after the end of regulation, the end of Sudden Death round 1 and Sudden Death Round 2!!! Finally, When asked the question about the All-time Plinko winnings record from everyone's favorite 11am show, "Wheel of Fortune", "Bozeman Bodyslam" was able to come away

Pork Rinds Are Gross
Tim

Hello, gang.   This week our quiz was a bit easier than last Thursday, as reflected in the fairly big increase in average score. Good work, all. You showed your knowledge of Oklahoma and did well with an odd mix of music in round two. You also really know your movie deaths, as you collectively crushed round three. We had an uptick in round six scores as well, which normally is our toughest. Round eight continued the recent trend of being brutal, though, as only one team cracked double digits. I also learned this week that there is another word for pork rinds as I butchered the pronunciation. I blame pork rinds for being gross. Seriously...it's like eating meat flavored

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!

A holiday weekend in the Summer is a perfect recipe for a light turnout, but that's not all bad! We kept with three prizes this week meaning that you had a fifty percent chance of winning! Even with the small crowd, we had a lot of fun! Everyone smiled nicely for the camera - the Lansing State Journal sent a photographer to take pictures for a story on all you beautiful folks. Where the Gene Wilder Things Are grabbed and easy first place victory. Slamma Montana and Rainbow Mantis Shrimp were neck and neck, but a slightly better non-joker score gave the second spot to Slamma Montanna.

How They Did Pub Quiz in the 1800s!
Brent

After a week of training a new QM, a week scorekeeping for Star Wars Night, and two weeks off, it was nice to be back at At Ease with 10 regular teams for another week of GWD. We did quiz night the old fashioned way, without answer sheets, but fortunately everyone was familiar with the rules and format so there were no issues.    There was a round on the great state of Oklahoma, the late Roger Moore, and national monuments. The Death Star Janitors, regularly in the top 3, struggled to get out of last place all night, but eventually did so, finishing 7th. Our winning team was another regular team, Space Chicken,
