betty white is everything
Alley Cat

Another classic evening at Burg and Barrel.  With a whopping 20 teams, we had some real close scores that kept everyone on their toes throughout the night. Regulars and fan favorites (sort of) The Bastard Sons of Car Sagan were there per usual to dominate. And did, in their slow subtle strike, kind of like a snake approaching its prey. But they were bested by the tiny mouse team of Disney on ISIS, also a regular who usually makes an appearance in the top 10 or so, but never taking the top spot (to my knowledge). But they did it! And by the skin of their teeth. Capturing the top spot, glory and $25 by one single point. Definitely a nail

They're Always Recording...
Justin Mazouat

Week two at The Curtis Club went even better than the first (if thats possible!)   Eleven teams came to prove that they knew more than Flying Sextopus, but it was not to be. The Piccadilly Twitz were on top, but in the last round, Sextopus did just enough to take the win. It was a tough round eight for sure, with a high score of eight. Sometimes thems the breaks, you never know what's gonna happen!   Round seven also was all over the place. The sound was a bit better the second go around, and every question was got by at least one team,

Yummy Roast Beef or I Shin Soo Choo'se You
Harvey Wallbanger

The Set-Up: Green Door Pubic House had 3 teams quiz.  My Quiz Beer was Peticolas Velvet Hammer 9% ABV: A tribute to our favorite Brewmaster, Greg Matthews, the Velvet Hammer appears as a dark, ruby reddish-brown ale beneath a sheath of protective off-white foam. It is malt-forward with elements of caramel and the sweetness of light brown sugar, balanced nicely by a combination of floral hops and a noticeable alcohol bite. It’s a sturdy brew with a smooth character which belies both an inner strength and a slightly full body, along with a moderate bitterness to round out the taste. www.ratebeer.com   The

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.

And On The Third Day, They Rumbled
Control Freakonomics

It's baaaaaaaaack! Rumble in the Pub is coming to a quiz venue near you starting this Saturday, August 1.  The provided link should tell you anything and everything that you could ever need to know about our regional invitational contest, but just in case it doesn't, read it again.  I expect to see our heavy hitters registered before too long, working hard to represent the Dock among Colorado's best.   There's a particular team out there that hasn't, you know, LOST this thing yet and the vast majority of Denver-area geeks would really, really appreciate it if someone toppled them.  There's a smaller swath of folks

Mike was a faithful quizzer for almost three years who finally fell victim to the siren call of becoming a quizmaster.  Translation: Getting paid to eat, drink, and joke at the expense of others was simply too much to resist.  Also, talking about himself in the third person is a major turn-on.

At first glance Mike probably qualify as more drink than geek, but he'll put his nerd street cred up against anyone brave enough to accept the challenge.  We're talking played World of Warcraft at a "WORLD CLASS" level here, people.  

There is, however, a soft spot reserved in his heart for good beer, bad puns, and obscure references so if you have any one of these to spare, come down to Dry Dock and get your quiz on!

Hi Little Woodrow's Midtown pub quizzers! CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: current recent happened-in-the-near-past-or-future events, songs with "queen" in the title or artist (squaaaaad), a simple round on who has more of a thing, a round with answers that all contain "phy" (so no "syphilis," y'all), "A Nightmare on Helm Street," a round on Czechs and rich people, celebrities saying bad things on tape and being serriptiously recorded, and finally, as always, random knowledge. Thanks for braving the brief burst of rain right before quiz, it cooled off, much in the way that throwing water over rocks in a sauna cools the room off.

  I smell beer and bad decisions. Smells like it's time for yet another quiz!. Maybe its the teen spirit? The hell if I know. How's it going, folks? Bryan's back. Back again. I've got to say, my favorite part of the evening had to be feeling like I was Moses parting the Red Sea when I came down for the bonus beer questions... but I don't think that I've ever almost been stabbed repeatedly during bonus beer questions.  "Coincidentally also the most popular baby-girl name in 2014, Charles Darwin's beloved wife shared what name with Ross and Rachel's kid?" and "What privileged asshole hates Mexicans

Born and raised in the outskirts of the Armpit of the Midwest, otherwise known as Racine (or Raycilla, if you're hardcore), I found myself isolated from the depravity of city life.

That's not to say that I was sheltered: 

As the school nerd, I found myself the butt of many jokes. No matter, I was raised by Anti-Dad, the most negative superhero on the planet. Where there is hope, he would crush it. Where self-esteem reared it's shiny head, he would be there to kick it in the testicles. I'm practically an insult Navy SEAL.

Years upon years of cultivating caustic wit and enough Snapple facts to keep that company running for centuries, I found myself with nothing but a college education, a permanent five o'clock shadow, and the voice of a radio announcer.

Sounds like the perfect recipe for a Quizmaster.

The Greek finiancial crisis is ongoing, so to celebrate, we listened to music from the musicals "Grease" and "Mama Mia!" (which was set in Greece), as well as a bunch of gangsta rap about hustlin' and pimpin' hoes to get those dolla bills. Eleven teams with hilariously Greece-y names competed for Rosie's gift cards and delicious dranks by answering a series of questions about queens, Czechs, and asshole celebrities. Here are the winners for July the twenty-ninth:From Zero to Gyro in first place with 76 points!

Remember how I mentioned that I was in a fantastic mood yesterday? Well I'm still in it today! We had a super fun quiz including the moment that woman straight up walked out because I called her out for shouting out answers. Is it so hard as a grown ass adult to follow instructions? I know I'm 27 and my expectations for polite society are way too high, but something as basic as that is just so simple. I love that I never have problems with my regulars, or my newbies. Speaking of, We had a team visiting from a different geeks venue! I love that I know basically every Austin QMs venue and can identify who does what. Being in the know is one o my strong suits.

A Good Fight to The End
MarthaZapata

It was a bittersweet quiz last night. Awesome for me because I got to sub at this tasty brewery but sad because it was the last night of quiz. We had a great turn out of teams, however. Bonus questions in this venue were weird for me because people are more far away from me then usual and I am mostly blind, so I'm pretty sure you guys could have just scribble anything down and I might have taken it because I couldn't actually see the answers all that well. I was very proud of the teams tonight for several reasons a) I got no dirty answers or giggty when I said DP b) everyone agreed that Christian Bale is a prick and c) we all agreed that Betty White is the shit.

Today, my kid sister and I went down Alpine Slide at Heritage Square.  I'm really sad about it's pending close.  The amusement park will stay open, but the slide and the shops are closing October 10th.  I really hope that my favorite haunted house, Spider Mansion, manages to keep frightening me every October.  I am so happy with our turn out for The Greedy Hamster. It's a great group of people with great food and drinks.  We were even lucky enough to have The Boulder Beer Company come out to visit and play.  Even the gal who just came to yell answers out was fun.  TAG

Er, um, uh, yeah. That’s about the highest level of brain function I’m capable of right now. I tried to hold the barest of conversations with someone earlier and I found myself grunting in response far more than is acceptable for anyone not covered solely in animal skins. That last sentence literally took me five minutes to type. I’ve already taken three breaks from writing this, because I just couldn’t.

Do Stop Me Now!
Steve C

What a fantastic group of quizzers we has last night! There were only seven of them but they not only performed like they were all champs they also helped me win an argument against Steve.   Seven epic teams some with suggestive names, the fact that both Moist Panties and I Quizzed in my Pants were in attendance was surely kismet.   Round 2 brought the smooth sound of Freddie Mercury and Steve’s very favorite Queen song Don’t Stop Me Now. The very next round featured a question about Bohemian Rhapsody, which happens to be Lindsay’s favorite Queen song. She mentioned to Steve off mic that she thinks

Jeremy: The drinks last night were really good! Angela: Usually they are terrible! Liz with all her fancy cocktail making and fruits she brings with her. Gross! ;) Jeremy: Hah! Angela: As always, we always say, they were fantastic! And I had some plums that Kerry had brought in from her yard. Also delicious! Jeremy: Mmm, fruit. Speaking of fantastic, the crowd was definitely that. You got a lot of flak for a certain two letter phrase on the quiz. :) Angela: Always a good crowd at Belmont.

Shake it Up!
MarthaZapata

Well I guess we know who all the alcholics in the group are. I had several teams get all the cocktails right in round 5. It;s pretty interesting how popular cocktails differ from region to region/ I worked in bars for 10 years in Florida and I don’t think I ever had any person ask me to make an old fashioned. In fact, a bar I worked at we had a pestle and when I trained people and they asked me what it was for I told them for drinks that they will never have to make. But then I moved to colorado and they are on every menu. Not just that but now I am one of those people that will order them all the time. I wonder what will happen if I go back to Florida and try to order one?   Thank

#J-E-L-L-NOOOOOO aka you're all very bad people
AlisonRudd

What's up, quiz kids! So I've worked up in Broomfield for about 4 months, completely oblivious that this little gem of a venue was literally right across the street. What a great place! Dogs, BBQ, a barleywine that just won't quit - this place has it all! Even though I fucked up my spreadsheet and confused a lot of you who thought you were doing way better (you were), you guys stuck in it with me and ended looking like you were having a good time. That could have also had something to do with the increased beer intake... I'm going to tell myself it was all for me though.

Wednesday was a busy night for Stone Creek. There was a comedy show in the back room, a painting class going on in the front, and a quiz show somewhere in the middle. It’s like a carnival of nighttime bar activities. We had 7 competitive teams, several of which were solo man missions. Jon’s Team comprised of just Jon, and MMM had only one M. TPT TNT took first place, and my heart, while “Our Team Met on Ashley Madison” was second. And R+L=J took third place (aka the ranking for the person with a hairy chest.)   Sadly, not one team had some sort of pun-based name, and I find that quite distressing. I’m not saying that you’re
