Making America Drunk Again!
Quizmistrix Lalenya

Remember the good ol' days, when one could have a beer or two at lunch?  When Happy Hour meant getting really happy right after work?  I miss those days... Nevertheless, we hang out at a brewery, and that means consumption of beer is not only ok, but expected!  Yeah beer! We had eight awesome teams, but the super power team formed by Veronica, Matthew, Patrick and Gus was just too powerful for all the competition.  Nice job, Are We Best Friends Now?  Pebble & Friends also had a fine showing for 2nd. Unfortunately, we did not have a tie breaker round, so I did not get to bust out my new exciting toy that

In the eye of a hurricane, there is quiet
JamieAnderson

Jake’s on a Thursday night in summer when the patio is open is pretty much the perfect place to be. Delicious food, really fun crowd, excellent atmosphere, and clear evidence as the night went on and the scores got noticeably worse that everyone was doing a lot more “drinking” than “geeking”. The funny answers degenerated from actual funny answers to “i dunno something funny”. The scrum for free beer got a lot more scrum-like. Going on in the ubiquitous panopticon of televisions that form the background of all our sports bars was, first, a Rockies game, and second, Donald

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream.

$hillz and Thrills
Cynthia

It was a quiet evening at Long Island City's Beer Closet this week, but fun nonetheless! Tonight's questions were for a real in-the-nknow New Yorker. With just three teams, everyone stayed neck and neck (and neck) throughout the trivia. In the end, it was Corporate $hillz that took the prize, followed by the Cat Ladies of Eastwick and The Lit Click, whose name had nothing to do with being college English majors, unfortunately. Great teams, great service, and great neighborhood! Hopefully, we'll all go check out that unauthorized prequel to Jane Eyre. I already forgot the title, but that's enough for us to Google.

It Started Down Low, Then Started to Grow
Justin Mazouat

So Denver is pretty humid huh? I felt it, and ya'll felt it, but we still had six teams come out for some M Uptown quiz night yesterday! It was one of the more tough quizzes recently, but the scores were tight right up until the end. Round two was one of the more challenging music rounds recently, even with the fact that so many answers repeated! Round eight was so tough, this quiz was one of the few that might warrant jokering a non-round five (that's an overstatement, always joker a sixteen point round.) I'll see everyone next week! Def getting used to using powerpoint and I look forward to seeing everyone once a week! Justin

Metal Shows & Nestlé Woes

Another awesome Thursday on the books! Thanks to the wonderful Baillie for covering for me while I was at a bachelorette party in Vegas last weekend. I successfully avoided casinos, went to a country bar and rode a mechanical bull, and spent a day on a large boat on Lake Mojave soaking in the sun and the drinks in 115 degree weather.   It was hot, dry, and had fantastic company... But I loved getting back to quiz to see all your lovely faces!   We had four teams join us for yet another night of quizzery as we discussed a slew of topics to challenge, compete, and basically have your asses handed to you from a visiting team from Georgia.

There's No Place Like Home, There's No Place Like Home...
Kelly the Bearcat

As many, if not all of you know: I’m from Chicago I’m getting married soon So I was in Chicago for a bridal shower that my mom and sister decided to throw me (and I literally had no input except for the fact that there were mimosas available to me), when I got a sad call and had to stay in Chicago for longer than originally planned. Everything is fine, and in the end I’m glad that I was able to be there for my (soon-to-be-legal) family. However, I was in Chicago for longer than I have been since I moved out here years ago. It was humid. It was gross. I did not pack enough clothes, and I may have tricked my sister and

That's Right I'm In It
Osman

I'm getting really tired of these bigots, yo. This Trump guy is pandering to the dumbest segment of voters and it seems like these white supremacists find some kind of validation from it. Well I got a message for you big boys: suck my brown, government-assistance having dick. I love welfare. I FUCKING LOVE IT MAN! Things we learned at quiz: 1. Anthony Bourdain gets really, really high. 2. A lot of people think that Bob Dylan has a song called "Work", which would make sense but it's also funny to think of him singing "work, work, work, work, work, work, he said me haffi work, work, work, work, work, work" 3.

Who in the bloody heck needs a 35-bedroom home?! That's crazy. CRAZY! I took the Thursday night quiz throwdown at Fado Irish Pub back inside this week, becauseYOLO! We came, y'all played, some conquered.   This week, we discussed the Nestlé corporation (mmmmm, chocolate... and so much more!), eight songs with four titles, things that are and aren't still around, celebrities and the dumb shit they own, jail and Jamaicans, random stuff Anthony Bourdain does and thinks, and which four state capitals aren't on an interstate highway.

Return Of The Quizmaster
Tim

Hey gang.   I'm back from a brief hiatus, and its good to be home. Thank you for being kind to the substitute teacher. Fortunately, you all seem to be as smart as ever. You showed off your knowledge of Nestle, celebrity extravagance and movies about lunatics. You also know your Anthony Bourdain geography. Round eight was a tough one, but you all gave it a run for it's money.   This Team Name Is Not Plagiarized trumped the competition with a twelve point round eight and a solid win. RNC Your Tits pulled up in second. Congrats to the winners, and I will see you all next Thursday!

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!

Well, well, well, look at what the cat dragged in? That’s right, just like a level 12 brace-faced teenager at a pokestop with a Mewtwo, that is to say, I’m just not ready to leave you guys yet! I promise you, Michael has not abandoned you, he’s just getting milk and cigarettes from the corner store. He will be back any day now, just you wait and see.   I will say, this quiz was not quite as busy as the last one, which meant that we got more one-on-one time together. Just the way I like it. I think it is nice to see some familiar faces, because you already know what lame dad-esque jokes you can expect from me, and I don’t have to preface it with

Last night at Bonus Round was amazing! Bonus Round hosted a Quiz for a Cause to support the Valley of the Sun United Way! And let me tell you, what a cause we supported! Bonus Round was nearly packed to capacity and we ended up raising over $300 for our cause! I was so proud of my little quiz, stepping up to help get people off the streets! Great job everyone! Round 1 covered all things Nestle--and had me craving some Quik power (but only in my lactose-free milk) and 90s X-Men cartoons. Those were the days! We discussed Switzerland

My New Political Affiliation: The Surprise Party!
Hunter

I've been pretty surprised by the various political parties this year. The vitriol and hate being spewed back and forth is just really damned depressing. It made me wish Jon Stewart was still on the air. Oh, wait! Jon Stewart did return tonight, but on Colbert's Late Show! Oh, how I've missed his voice. Well, not his literal voice, but his take on politics and the media. If you missed his bit tonight, you need to go watch it here.And the Surprise Party? It actually fits this year.

Whether you’re an aging pop star, a still totally exciting accountant, or a pretty CW parade, it was certainly good times fun this week at quiz.  I enjoyed stepping into some comically big shoes (Hopefully Best of Greeley comically big shoes!) to hang out with you all and have some fun at one of my favorite restaurants in town. Round 2 was super great to Melania’s Speechwriter – Ctrl C and Ctrl V, they took most of the points in that round and then marched around like it was their very own candidate’s platform.  Though kudos should and will go to Real Trump Shady for being in the top 3 heading into Round 8 without

Best described as one of those "substitute people," Heather can be seen filling in for most any Front Range QM.  (Except the crazies in the Springs.)  In her spare time she enjoys long walks on the beach, embroidery, and coming up with cryptic hints and clues for her substi-quizlings.  

Things to know about Heather if she subs for your quiz?  She's prone to buy you a beer if you mention something from this bio, and has also been known from time to time to announce for "The Derby" as CSI seems to think it's called.
