Honkey Grandma Be trippin'
PFS

Spread the word, ladies and gentlemen, Geeks Who Drink is here, with little to no vengeance, to spread the world of pub quizzing to the masses, but more specifically the folks of Northwest Portland, here at the Pizza Schmizza Pub and Grub.  Last night was our second night at the new locale, and we had a wonderful turnout of some brilliant folks.  To appease one of the few rules and not have a mega team, last week’s 2nd placers, 4 Whores and 7 Beers Ago, split and formed two very competent teams: 2nd place winners Four Whores and last night’s first time champion, Seven

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

I'm glad nothing blew up last night.
Major Tom

Ever have one of those days? As you know, I have two Quiz venues. One of them is always teetering on the edge of disaster. The other is a well-oiled machine. Dini and I love them both, but if there is going to be one of them that has one of those days, it's not going to be the Crown. Except that this week, it was the Crown. I got to the Crown a bit late, and found that the place was absolutely packed. September typically gets a little sparse, and last week was no exception. I was amazed to see that we had a big job in front of us last night. So, we start to set up, and the extension cord we use was missing. The staff found a different one, and we hooked everything up, only to find that it

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.

Off with their whorish heads!
Johnna

I spilled my beer again. Can someone find me a grown-up sippy cup? Thanks. So there was a question last night that referenced Princess Di and I realized that I don’t really know that much about her. I mean I know the importance stuff, like that her Beanie Baby is worth anywhere between $100 and $100,000,000 depending on its edition and that her eyes were a very pretty shade of blue. My curiosity about Princess Di sent me down an internet rabbit hole filled with iconic fashion choices and conspiracy theories that made me believe the cashier at Trader Joe’s may be the Princess in disguise. I wrapped this all up with reading about Prince Charles and his mistress-now-wife Camilla

Hey Squirrel Friends
Meggan

I've been Michelle Visage a few times in my life, but I'm always striving towards the perfection that is RuPaul Charles. In the meantime I can rest in the glory of knowing that I can always count on good ol Geeks Who Drink to bring us at least one dragtastic question a month about logo's most watched show. Tonight's Round 1: Silence! I've Made My Decision was not only named for RuPaul's tagline, but RuPaul herself was the answer to our bonus question. Yes hunty.   Big congratulations to Hello Beautiful who took home the grand prize and chose their name because it was written on a rock on the table. All of the tables had hand-painted rocks on

Wherein Quizmistress A chats about Being Nice
QuizMistressA

I was a kind of a nutty night at 21st Ave Bar & Grill! The place was packed! And a lot of fun was had. It's almost hat season you guys! I'm so excited! I love hats! I feel like I need to splurge on some new silly hats. The sillier, the better. My friend/fellow QM, Lindsay, sent me a tiny hat when she was my secret Santa. Hats are fun! We should all get together and have a hat party. Reba the Cat does not feel the same way. I tried to get her to wear the tiny hat once. She would have none of it.  A caught a Pikachu today. So I guess I can stop playing Pokemon Go now. I probably won't though.  Congrats

Proust? Bronte? Cervantes? WTF?! Was this POEM night?
Hunter

You know, POEM: the Professional Organization of English Majors. I know that's what many folks thought when Round Three had questions on Miguel de Cervantes, the three Brontes, Marcel Proust... and how the hell did Amy Tan get in that list? (Sorry, Amy Tan brings back bad memories of editing the audio book version of The Joy Luck Club.)We had rousing group of 14 teams tonight at Lost Highway. And all of them seemed to be prepping for this weekend's GABF: the Great American Beer Fest. Or maybe it was because of the questions on the literary stuff. Who knew that you'd be tested on this shit outside of that English 101 class in college? Look on the bright side, though. We

Two teams, one name, and an amazingly confused substitute quizmaster
Katherine

I’m convinced that Mark (your super awesome regular Thursday quizmaster) created an elaborate practical joke to amuse himself and confuse the hell out of me (your not nearly as awesome substitute quizmaster this week). Even though my brain almost exploded after realizing there were duplicate* answer sheets, I’m happy to say that I can laugh about it now. Score: Mark - 1; Katherine - 0.   *not actually “duplicate” answer sheets – same team name at the top, different answers = wtf?? The mystery was solved – this week we had two teams with exactly the same team name. I’m talking about the Periodic Table Dancers

Fun facts, fantastic! Numbers, not so much.
Jessica

Wellp, the more the merrier, indeed. And merry it was… although potentially a little too merry at a couple teams. To be honest, those teams were more like regiments. An entire regiment of 7, or 9, or 22 or whatever, geeks who drink. But they were merry, which is the most important thing, right? And boy did they drink!   Another important thing to note is the lovely owner of Palmer, Rob, supplied pizza for the whole room of folks just out of the goodness of his heart! Meanwhile, Jade was Jading away as she usually does, completely unaware that I have recently decided her name should be used as a verb.   Back at the tremendous tables of trivia

"It's Like Campbell's Cup-O'-ccino."
Lady Busty

Wednesday night, I was part of a special promotion on behalf of Sierra Nevada and their Oktoberfest beer. The rep asked me if I wanted some. You know, I'm not much of a drinker in general. So, I replied, "I'll have a sample." I thought he'd bring back a tall shot glass or something like that. No, he brought me a stein, and not a mini one at that. Um . . . "I said, 'a sample.'" He laughed and walked away. I immediately thought of this quote from one of my favorite* movies: "So I Married an Axe Murderer". Charlie (our protagonist) orders a large cappuccino and gets handed a mug the size of a bowl. "Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our ten rabbits, nineteen chickens, nine ducks, five turkeys, six quail, one goose, four cats, two dogs, three mice, two goats, and two turtles.

Putting the Special in Special Forces
Jake

Hey Campers! It was a fun time last night, and I gotta say you all helped me out of my funk. My dog died the night before quiz, so if I seemed a little out of sorts that’s why. Thanks for making things a little brighter. On to the rundown! Round one, entitled Silence! I’ve Made My Decision, had a silent letter in every answer, and that same silent letter in the corresponding question. Round two, our first audio round, was song titles that, when said to you by a stranger at the bus station, would give you the heebie jeebies. Round three, my personal favorite, a round where teams were NOT given a point for each correct answer. Instead, the

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year… in Denver at least!
Josh

So it’s that time of the year when the Great American Beer Festival rolls back in to town.  The GABF is essentially Mecca for beer connoisseurs and the casual beer drinker, 3 Days, 800 Breweries, and 3,800 beers.  Frankly it can be overwhelming if you never been before but it’s a great opportunity to sample beers from all over the nation from large and small breweries alike.  Maybe more importantly though, it is an awesome week to be in Denver because everywhere you look there is fantastic beer available.  Rare Beers, Beers not typically distributed to Denver, and the local breweries usually pull out all the stops putting their best offerings on tap.  So,

TFW You're Having an Aleppo Moment But You Still A Queen
Quizmistress April the Supreme

Wow! Eleven Teams greeted me at Dinosaur Bar B Que last night, giving Jessica a full bar and making my scoring breaks tight. Thank you to all 42 of you for choosing to spend your evening with me for what turned out to be a very peculiar quiz. We started out with a round on silent letters. Somewhere in the question lay a silent letter that was also the silent letter in the answer. The final question of the round was a Coldplay hit from 2015 (that I had never heard) and the question was posed in such a manner that made me recite some of the lyrics. Although it was not the correct answer and an unpopular opinion, Aleppo Moments started

Hey, wake me up when September ends huh? Oh what? actually over now? What the holy hell has happened to the summer. It definitely had an autumn feel in the air at the Cedar Hills Schmizza this Thursday. Going outside for the bonus questions I could feel the chill in the air about my bald spot. I need to start wearing some head gear these Thursday nights so I don't catch cold. I wont lie, I did back to back Quizmaster nights this week as Wednesday night some of you saw me host the all Firefly Quiz and then to turn it around and meet you all last night.
