A Valentine's Day extravaganza!
Weapon Z

Love, animosity, and a faint linger of alcohol was in the air last night at Krazy Karl’s. We celebrated Valentine’s Day a day early with Valentine’s and candy for everyone, a special playlist with songs about love and hate, and extra prizes including tons of beer mugs to go along with our gift cards. Valentine’s Day isn’t the only thing being observed. Lent is currently in full swing. Of course, when I asked people who was observing Lent, not a single hand went up in the bar. I’m not terribly surprised, but I was slightly disappointed. Mainly because I’m an enabler, and I was planning to get that person whatever it was they were giving up.

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.

Winter Quiz 6Teen Minus the Temperature
Reef

This week we all learned that Wednesday's will be the precursor to quiz because the Corkscrew now has a karaoke night! Every week for almost two years we have gotten together for jokes, questions and mostly a cold one, this week was no different outside of having a wild Pokemon present. We managed to have a dirty dozen teams compete this week which is always a pleasure, the more the merrier, kinda like an orgy but this is only a quiz, keep the clothes on. In third overall we had team Team 236, the Master Pikachu Squad, a gang of new fellas who enjoy the trivia and add to it with their antics and were rewarded with the bronze. In second we had

I suck at Bio's and remembering names so keep that in mind when we meet at Geeks. I enjoy long games of Zombies, Grand Theft and the occasional Poker night under the cool breeze of an air conditioner. Not exactly one for making the jokes, I let them come to me from the situation, like raindrops on a pools surface. If my Bio is lacking, feel free to give me suggestions as I plan on being a level 65 Quiz master in no time!!

See you at Mills on Tuesday's, if you read this, tell me at the bar! Say "I put cinnamon in my coffee too!" and you may receive receive something special from your host.

The Rise and Fall of the Douches
TanookiSuitandTie

What's going on, quizzerinos? Today marks a momentous event in my life that in no way affects you or my ability to carry out my duties as a quizmaster. Today, the couch upon which I sit and have sat for every single blog entry I have done since my first one in April 2015 (seems so long ago, don't you agree?) is being replaced! Yes, I bought this couch almost 5 years ago for $300 when I was still working for a soulless furniture company that shall not be named. It was kinda screwed up then and it is waaaaaaay screwed up now. When sit on it, you sink and get a good ol' spring up your keister. The cushions flop around and the underside is ripped to shreds not only by the inner parts poking out

A megalomaniac with a heart of gold, I've been a quizzer for 2 and half years but I've yet to come out to my parents about it. Now that I've achieved the lofty title of Quizmaster, I'm ready to bust some names and take some heads. Interests include video games, word play and terrible impressions of Gollum and Alan Rickman. For great justice!

The one where my parents came to quiz
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!Real talk: my parents came to quiz tonight. They've never been to one of my quizzes before. I've never let them. I've been afraid of how they would feel about my flippant use of profanity.But I think it went well! They were very complimentary about the whole thing. They liked our nice easy Round 1 where each answer contained four or fewer letters. Casino employees stand in the pit, rice wine is sake, etc etc.My parents did not really like Round 2; their team only got a 7 out of 16. Apparently songs that complain about rhyming/don't rhyme at all are not their forte. But they did know Alice Cooper's School's Out! Legit.Round

St. Valentine Was No Saint Last Night
SirYon

Happy Valentine’s Day to all you lovers. And to all you normal people, Happy Anti-Valentine’s Day! Tonight’s moodlighting music featured many aspects of love. From despair and obsession, to gleeful delusions. But mostly, they were just songs with the word “love” in them. It’s nice when a playlist basically makes itself.   Speaking of love…it is a four-letter word. That was round 1. Small words. Like Bono. He’s also small in stature. I could list other small things, but I don’t really want to talk about Donald Trump. {Oh no. This quiz has gone political. Let the motley bull commence.}   Sarcasm

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...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

Hey there, Pub Quiz Fans!   After a hiatus, we are BACK at Sporting Life Bar! Technical issues aside, it was good to be back.     TIDBITS FROM THE QUIZ (AKA What did we learn?):   Now this makes sense: Here’s what the question in the first round – in which the answer was fox – was about.   The Grammys are on Monday night. Here are the nominees.   I have used a KatKit before. A couple of summers ago, my wife had a conference in Sacramento,

Couch Gags
DJ ROB ROB

Tonight at quiz at The Ute and Yeti, we had a particular question in Round 4 that stood out to me. The question was about couches, but the clue was that a TV show has been doing a couch-based gag as their opening credits for 27 years. To some, it's obvious that the clue was referencing The Simpsons, which has been doing their opening gag with varying degrees of success for years and years. I happen to be watching every episode of the Simpsons lately thanks to everysimpsonsever.com, which started a year or two ago online. I started probably in the summer of last year, beginning in season 6 with my favorite episode of all time, Bart of Darkness. I made it all the way

Welcome to the last quiz for Two Whole Weeks! How will you live? By coming to Geek Bowl next week, that's how! Sheesh. At any rate we're glad you joined us for our final quiz for Two Whole Weeks here at Darcy's and look forward to welcoming you back soon, but not-as-soon-as-usual. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: Saving your Joker until R8 is never a good plan. Except when it is. Except then it leads

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.

Pearl Harbor Was an Inside Job
Geoff (like Chaucer)

Less than 24 hours until Valentine's Day, and this quizmaster is sadly-not-sadly single.  As far as I'm concerned, the whole concept of Valentine's Day is just an excuse to prop up one or two sectors of the economy.  The canonized Valentines were martyrs; we celebrate that fact with romance, chocolate, flowers, and dramatic relationship meltdowns worthy of WorldStarHipHop.com.  No, I'm not bitter; why do you ask?OK, all drama aside, we still had a good night here at Darwin's Theory.  Seven teams came out to test their brains about love, fear, mean people, household objects, award shows, and rhyming songs.Pod People came out on top

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.

Damn, Molly

Ahoy! I've been running myself a little ragged with all of the quiz subbing I've been doing the past few weeks but it's been nice to come home to a house full of dogs. I'm dog-sitting for my neighbor which means on top of the dachshund and poodle extravaganza that's normally at my house, I've got the saddest looking spaniel thing that ever was created. Her name is Bailey and she has bladder problems. It's hard to me mad at something that constantly looks like it just watched the first 10 minutes of UP for the first time.  Anyhoo! Quiz was a good time as always. We had some laughs, we had some beers, we had some people who were way too excited about Mama Mia. Shout out

                The cold’s returned. I mean we had to pay for the non-winter we’ve been having at some point, right? But this is what makes us Rochestarians who we are; the ability to deal with brutal, depressing cold and come out fighting.                 And remember last year when the entire month of February was below zero? We would have prayed for a day that was 14 degrees.                 So toughen up. Bust out the cocoa and

Liz Is Back on Her Ownsome Lonesome!
Liz

I don't know why I start these blog titles sounding like Dr. Seuss, but there we go! This past week as Devil's Pocket was a lot of fun.  A good amount of good-sized teams made for a nice and chatty night with our regulars.  Beef chili nachos were on every table and Yards Brawler was warming every heart.  We kept it speedy this time, and moved quickly through the rounds which ended up being a very good thing, as we went into OVERTIME!  Yes, we had a tie for first place between Eli Manning's Face (excellent excellent topical team name) and This Team Just Drew a Picture of a Penis (oldie but a goodie!) and EM'sF really

The Quiz to Perdition
Thomas

We had a full house for our weekly pub quiz at the James River Brewery. It was a night for the regulars, including our latest and greatest addition to the JRB family, Wesley. We opened with a softball, the aptly named “Duh” round in lieu of our normal current events, and though no one could quite pull out a perfect round, there was a great deal of parity from everyone except team Dinah, who were late cause that's what babies do. But even starting a few points behind, they quickly made up ground and by the first break were right in the thick of things. All of our teams turned in nearly identical answers for rounds three, four and five.

You Kids Don't Know The Bay City Rollers??

S A T U R D A Y - NIGHT! Yeah, none of you knew that one.  Totally whiffed the bonus question for like four freakin' minutes on this one.  One of you guys finally got it, probably by yelling out into the street until someone's mom happened by. It was a pretty fun night, all told - specifically because of round 7, which was all about hard core nudity.  I mean, you couldn't see the nudity, but how is that different from a normal Thursday night for you people?

There's an opposite side to "Those who can't do, teach."

That opposite side is, "Those who can do so well that they ruin it for everybody else by making them feel like there's no point in playing."

That's the way I am with quiz games.  I always get accused of cheating, and I always win the free drinks.

So, my new calling in life is to shepherd your weak, jiggly brains into the harsh light of knowledge - to every week pit the strong against the week, strengthening the herd, and ultimately deciding who is only a little bit not-as-smart-as-I-am.

The One About My Grandma
Nicole

Tonight we celebrated the true spirit of teaminess (and also, want-beer-iness) and witnessed two pairs join forces into one reasonably competitive group. Longshotz (aka the Back Bar Crew) went head to head with Spot for the majority of the quiz. Latecomers Dommer swooped in and took one bonus beer, though only managed to scrape together three total points. This week's quiz had me reliving ancient embarrassments, as we listened to Borat's nude dude scene. The first time I saw that, I was on a date and surrounded by a bunch of friends and it was hilarious. The second time I saw it, I was sitting between my grandmother and my
