More fun than a barrel of Weasleys!
Major Tom

As I told everyone last night, I love Pub Quiz in general, but I really love themed Quizzes. A big group of nerds all getting together to celebrate something we all love and have in common. It's a beautiful thing, and I think it's my natural environment. I love that people dress up, or at least put on their topic-related t- shirts. I love that the crowds are big, and that there's a palpable energy about the place. I love the creative team names, and the laughs that they get. I love getting creative coming up with drink coupons or other prizes. I love seeing pictures of what other Quizmasters across the country did for their Quizzes. The cheers, the laughs, the boos, all the reactions from

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.

Harry Potter Theme Quiz
Tyrannosaurus Jess

I was first introduced to Harry Potter at the tender age of 11, in Mr. Cramer’s 6th grade class. This was in 1998. A girl in my class had Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and my teacher read it to us during snack time. We all listened, captivated, about the story of the boy who lived, and his friends Ron and “Her-mion” (because no one knew how to pronounce Hermione back then). And thus began my obsession.   I am not sure what it is about my family, but we like standing in line for things. I have stood in line for the release of every Harry Potter book from Chamber of

The prophecy came true! As it was foretold, lo, many people did descend upon Spats for an evening of Harry Potter quizzing, and many a good time was had! At least, I hope that was the general feeling. No mere 'trivia' evening was this; our Geeks Who Drinks High Quizmasters had assembled eight rounds of perplexing questions that would challenge even the most diligent muggle, let alone a fledgling Hogwarts student. This was a true test, tougher than the Triwizard Tournament, harder than a horcrux and smarter than Hermione on steroids. With a packed house assembled in every nook and cranny of Spats' Jungle Room, and quizzing decrees decorating the walls, we began with a simple,

What a delightfully magical fun Harry Potter quiz we had at Tap Root! There were lots of people, lots of laughs and some sweet ass prizes. In our first place was Quizeners of Azkaban and only one point behind them in second place was Optimistic to the Point of Foolishness. Lots of other prizes were given away, such as 3rd place (Gryffinpuff) and Not Last (I Love Harry Potter, I'm Surius). Not even to mention our costume contest. Thanks for coming out, guys!

Everybody Loves Luna
Your Best Friend Rachel

Yesterday at our Fifth Geek Cauldron: A Harry Potter Quiz, Luna Lovegood once again killed it in the Costume Contest, taking home a pretty cool prize and winning the hearts of basically everyone playing Quiz at Vetted Well. What IS it about Luna that makes her such a fan favorite!? Is it her spacey, child-like, harmless personality? Is it her eclectic sense of style? Does she remind us that you can be a little crazy on the outside but be pretty damned smart and resourceful and there to help someone when they need it most? Luna always says the right thing at the right time, and it's never the thing you'd expect. When Dobby dies, Luna says the perfect thing. We're

At least that's the way it felt this weekend at TJ Elliott's in Bowie, MD where I was putting some of the finishing touches on my buddy and soon-to-be new quizhost, Mighty Matt Fisher. Matt did an outstanding job of co-hosting tonight, in fact, so much so that I believe this kid might be a natural. After having two party fouls of spilled drinks on one of the tables we were using and one of the drinks taking out my laptop, the first few rounds and the video round were dependant on Matt ..and he knocked it out of the park without batting an eye. I expect great things from this guy as a quizhost. *The Thought for the Week

The regulars at Chelsea Pub & Lounge, Hermosa Avenue, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. That is until the place was taken over by fanatic Harry Potter fans. In fact, there were so many quizzers, we had to spill over into the adjoining bar. Like tributes in the Tri Wizard Tournament, every team gave it their all, culminating in a single point difference between first and second. There were rounds on everything ranging from Quidditch to book chapters to magical creatures. The celebration did not stop with the quiz. Wizards and No-Maj alike

WillSalerno

Quiz was difficult and not short on Thursday. Granted, quiz started a bit late because I showed up late. Usually I get home from work, crash for 20 minutes, throw on my quiz uniform (hilarious t-shirt, jeans and closed-toed shoes cause y'all are gross hicks), and Uber on up to Fuzzy's. This week started no differently, and I was on my way out the door when I realized, fuck, I couldn't find my fucks. Now, usually I keep my fucks by the door so I don't forget them, but my fuck rack was barren of fucks. Did I leave them in my car? Nope, the fuckholder was empty, as was the fuckbox. "Shit," I thought, "where the fuck are my fucks? I know I didn't

Merlin’s beard we had such an amazing turnout at The Geeky Cauldron; A Harry Potter Quiz!! All you beautiful muggles and wizards showed up and played your hearts out! What you lacked in actual Harry Potter knowledge you made it up in enthusiasm and mediocre team names. Seriously guys, two Neville Gonna Give Your up, Neville Gonna, and several snitch related names...dudes. It’s like..did you not understand how hilarious these names could be? Without even trying I came up with Expecto Patron-ass, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Beer, That’s What Dobby Said...boom! Comedic wizard gold! Call me Gringotts with all this gold I’m dropping! Ha!

Harry Potter and the Colfax Avenue
RESII

“Where am I?” Harry rubbed his eyes. The portkey had worked, most assuredly. He found himself on a sidewalk next to something called a Popeye’s Chicken. Many other commercial buildings lined the street. “HARRY! Ron, he’s here, Harry’s here!” And with that, Hermione threw herself around Harry like a basilisk. “What is this place?” asked Harry. This time Ron spoke up. “It’s Colfax Avenue in the city of Denver. United States. But that’s not the crazy thing.” “What’s the crazy thing?” “It’s not the nineties anymore, Harry,” said

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

Why Didn’t The Indian Bakery Make Any Money? Because It Was A Naan Profit

Ok, with that terrible joke is out of the way, let’s talk about last night. I was amused by the team calling themselves Wait, We Thought This Was Harry Potter Trivia, assuming they were winking at our Harry Potter quiz that happened earlier that same day. I even joked that it was the Harry Potter quiz, but GWD has already asked all of the Harry Potter trivia questions we possibly could in previous theme quizzes, so now it’s just a normal quiz branded with the Harry Potter theme. But then, as I was editing pictures, I noticed homeboy with the Hogwart’s t-shirt on and it made me think: did these people really think that they were attending the The

Yesterday we proved that Harry Potter fandom is still alive and kicking here in San Diego.  We had a TON of you show up for this quiz, with one person coming all the way from Texas and a second coming all the way from the UK!  We even had our own version of the sorting ceremony and by the time it was all said and done the standings were: 14 Hufflepuffs 19 Syltherins 27 Gryffindors 34 Ravenclaws Now, I don't want to accuse a house (other than Slytherin) of cheating, but I just want to say that the Ravenclaw sheet definitely raised some questions for me.  First of all, I could tell that an outside writing utensil was used.  Now, that

Y’all…we did a Harry Potter Quiz yesterday at Mother Muffs Kitchen & Spirits and it was totally OFF THE HOOK. “The Geeky Cauldron” was so much more fun than I could have imagined. Getting 130 responsible adults together in a big room, dressed up like wizards and drinking…just so they can try to prove how much they know about The Boy Who Lived seemed like a daunting task at first. But you came out in droves. We barely had room for all of you. And you were so happy to be there. There was cheering, groaning, a little crying and SO MUCH LAUGHTER.

So, yesterday’s quiz was my very first time hosting a themed quiz. That might not seem like that big of a deal, but playing in a Star Wars themed quiz 2 years ago is where Geeks Who Drink and I first met, so for me it’s an anniversary of sorts.

I started quizzing way back in 2009 in a little 'ol town called Austin, TX. After making the move to Houston, I became a regular quizzer at Little Woodrow's Rice Village on Tuesday nights. It's more fun to win when you're beating grad students and doctors. A year went by, and I grew into quite the quiz addict. It was time to up the ante. I needed to be closer to the quiz action. At the auditions, I fought other contestants to the death to achieve an unexpected, well-fought victory. I now host Monday and Tuesday evenings while drinking delicious beer to forget the things I did to get here.

Before my quiz life, I attended school in San Antonio, where I became an English major and a rabid Spurs fan. During the day I work as a private tutor and professional taco slinger. When not engaged in any of these wonderful occupations, you'll find me buried in a book somewhere or out and about with my Australian Shepherd, Jam. I can even be spotted playing quiz on a Wednesday or Thursday. I can't quit you, quiz.

Join me for all my hosting smart-assery at Neil's Bahr Monday nights in East Downtown or in Rice Village at Little Woodrow's on Tuesdays.

43 Teams. 344 answer sheets. 731 Bertie Bott’s Every Flavored Beans. 1 sock. Safe to say, The Geeky Cauldron: A Harry Potter Theme Quiz was a huge success here at Alamo Drafthouse. From the moment Scorekeepers Erich, Glenn, and Andrew began to help me hang streamers (I’m short…er than all of them) in the house colors of Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff, we heard people whispering in excitement about the good ol’ HP.
