The Jury is Still Out
Dav

  Hello Westsiders! Thanks so much for another remarkable quiz. I have to admit, I don’t remember too much of it as I was on a liver-soaking mission. As I told you, I was selected for jury duty and, from what I have been warned from others, it is awful. Well, they were correct, so I was thankful to at least still have the remainder of my buzz going in at 8 am. I figured (hoped) my experience would be similar to most where you go in, the bailiff calls role,  and they he dismisses everybody because all cases were demurred, settled, continued, or otherwise eliminated from the daily docket. I’ll just say that did happen eventually, but not until my hangover was in

Come to my quiz for a multimedia experience that will leave you with a feeling that you have just seen a pretty decent PowerPoint presentation with limited animations! Plus, I promise to offend at least three people each night! My quiz is guaranteed to bring more enjoyment than Laffy Taffy jokes, so what have you got to lose?

On The Nose
Renerdssance Man

I don’t think I’ve ever had a team nail the tiebreaker question before, but it happened last night. Forgot to ask whether Jersey actually knew the answer or whether it was a guess, but it doesn’t really matter because the two newcomers to the neighborhood got it exactly right to beat out Bread Makes You Fat in a race for second place. It was just second, however, because erstwhile Sanctuary regulars The Gang Goes to Trivia absolutely dominated this quiz from start to finish. Getting a 15J on Round 2 (Eight Songs, Four Girls) when nobody else scores more than 7 points will pretty much guarantee

So, it may have rained a bit. That's good in some respects, but not in relation to us quizzing outside. I may have forgotten to take a coat. But next time I'll remember. What else could I bring, tea candles and blankets? Brace yourself people, Winter is coming. Right after fall. It's September. What a month. I could take it or leave it. What did you think of August? There are a lot of questions in this intro. And there are a lot of questions in a quiz. Nice transition. Round 1 had product ad slogans with a letter changed. Hold on, let me see if I have something for this.The champagne of bearsa mink is a terrible thing to wastean ikea can change your life

Ginger Lickin' Good!

...How could I *not* use that title?  It's one of the most brilliant things to come out of the central writing staff in quite sometime. (Y'all are too busy to read these blog posts, right?  Hello? I'll see myself out...)   Last night's quiz broke some new ground for the Maggie's crew.  First off, Bri got to play quiz rather than serve the beverages.  There were 1st round word games, or as I like to think of it, "T-Shirts that Junior High Kids Think Are Funny", (we'll get back to that).  We also had a gambler / list round, which was a new one for me. Fun, but damn confusing for some teams.   Plus the standard GWD fare:

Give me novocaine
Kirk

That's not just one of my favorite Greenday tracks, but also how my Wednesday started.  It's not often that a Quizmaster has a day as rewarding as three hours of morning dental work AND hosting a quiz, but that's just what I got to do on Wednesday.  As much fun as we had last night at the Den, I might start scheduling a regular Wednesday root canal from here on out. Our number of teams is growing and we finally saw some competition for Eric's domination of the bonus round portion of the quiz.  We had some great performances tonight, including some very impressive answers in the difficult third round and the random knowledge category.

Good To Be Back
DeweyNelson

Hello hello! I took a little hiatus and missed the last two quizzes but now I am back! Finnegan's gave me a royal welcome upon my return. At least that's how I remember it! Coming back made me realize that I don't really know who I am without the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz.  And maybe... neither do you?  Have you let yourself find yourself in the quiz?  Have you let yourself learn to love? The time you have right now is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Winner winner chicken dinner
WyattCarson

R.L. Steinbeck (or how I like to refer to them "The Gingers")  finally managed to get some friends to stay the whole night, and took 1st place as a consequence.  Congrats guys, you've been coming steady for a while now, I love to see new teams step up and win.   2nd place went to the venerable "Cuntucky".  Very close guys, but if the Gingers can manage to get a full team every week, you're reign of terror may be in jeopardy.   3 Nurses and Nick did awesome.  They don't have much experience playing, and there was only 4 of them, but they challenge 2nd place pretty steadily.

Fun Times in Quizland Again!
AaronHolderman

Thank you to all my quizzers last night, it was an enjoyable evening as always. Not too much new to report from this QM, so we'll just get down to business. The quiz was fairly competitive, especially with a wildcard round like #3 thrown in there to mix things up. In first place we had returning team, Fiduciary Booty, who had been out for a few weeks but stormed in with a vengeance. They narrowly beat out second place team *'s by only a couple points. I hope you all had a great time, I'll see you next week! Aaron

#TCrooz and the Difference Between Pixie and Angel Dust
stotticus

If you’re gonna go down, go down in style. When dynamic duo Kelsterling decided the ship was sinking they did the most honorable thing and epoxied six hundred chicken tenders together and used them as a flotation device. Never let go! It was such that they provided me with the funniest answers of the night, including the answer leg bone to the question of bones in the knee, complete with the confidence to draw an arrow toward their answer with the assertion “this is correct.” I laughed so hard that I bought you shots. Anyway, as far as “legitimate quiz” (of which I have a way of “shutting that whole thing down”) we had

Is There A Knee Specialist In The House?
Pope Pepe

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that I was in a Quiz full of misogynistic , non-Buzzfeed reading people. We had a whole round on lists! America, you love your lists. In addition, you also love your listicles. How many times have you clicked on a link, “25 Times Your Car Looked Like A Celebrity,” or “If Disney Sidekick Characters Had Piloted The First Moon Landing?” Plenty I bet. We’ve moved into a new realm of infotainment. I remember the surge of “news magazines” way back when. Growing up we had “P.M. Magazine,” a weird mix of local and national news, with some modern entertainment and movies thrown in. It was also hosted

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.

You are History's Greatest Master Cord!
Steve C

There are many great mysteries to life. The nature of life and death, the Sphinx, just what in the hell is up with that cord that connects to the sound system at Sedgwicks? No matter! All our audio rounds worked because even our arch nemesis (that damn cord) knows this shit is important. Round one, wherein we changed one letter in an ad slogan to change it completely, pleased Lindsay greatly as she has the sense of humor of a twelve year old and she got to say the word fart into a microphone. Check that nonsense off the old bucket list.    Steve's playlist tonight

Accept One Substitute
Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!

Gooood morning, Cortland Quizzers! Quizmaster Hobert here, subbing in for Quizmaster Lior. Hey, guys, I just want to say thanks for being cool last night. I know the usual tradition (if TV and movies taught me anything, which they did. They taught me everything) is to be spontaneously cruel to substitutes. The classic bits are of course telling a substitute teacher your name is something hilarious like Seymour Butts or Mike Hunt, not taking the Vice-President very seriously, and opening a container of margarine just so you can whisper to its contents "I can believe you're not butter, you tub of shit." But you guys didn't stoop to that level. In fact, you were

In Which a Stranger Judges You Harshly

So my friend Sara Alfieri has been living in the barren, buffalo wingless wasteland of London, England for the last few months and is a bit homesick. I was talking to her about our Geeks Who Drink pub quiz last night and she wanted to hear the team names you guys came up with. I sent her the list and she decided to run through each name, giving her thoughts and ranking them in terms of goodness:1. Bone Thugs N Hermione – this album needs to be released. Asap. Call Emma Watson. 2. Trumplestiltskin – maybe if someone yells this at him

You Farted In Trader Joe's
OG QMotY

You were the tall brunette that farted in the bread section last night. I was the tall guy next to you that looked over and asked "Was that you?"  You quickly replied "No! That wasn't me!" You almost seemed insulted I would even ask. As the stink grew, you tried to deny your flatulence but it was evident. I tried to get rid of the stench by waving two loaves of ciabatta bread, but your stink was no match. You stormed off in an angry manner; I was bummed. You are beautiful even if you are a liar and fart like a Clydesdale. I'd totally love to meet up some time.  God I love missed connection ads. Speaking of missed connections, congrats to Rumpleforeskin on

Not a Fan of Alex's Party?
AlexRice

Ain't no party like an Alex party. That was proven by Wednesday night's winning team, made up of my parents, grandma and best friend. Alex's Party totaled 70 points on the night, beating out Not a Fan (surprisingly, this team didn't include any of my family members who aren't fond of me) by five points. The best fart of waking up is when you eat flesh, the other shite meat, right? It's ginger lickin' good and results in 99.44% puke. I'm 99.44% positive about that. Thanks for playing last night! I hope to see you next week!

You Don't Have to Wait until My Birthday to Buy Me a Drink

Hi guys! Remember that question a few weeks ago about the feminist book where the woman throws herself into the ocean, called The Awakening and one team guessed that it was called “The Period”? I’d never heard of that book until then and coincidentally I had to read it at work this week. It’s a pretty good read. I recommend it. I think you guys did pretty well this week. Our winners, Vagrant Mischaracterization, got a whopping 87 points and were the only team to score more than 8 points in the special round 3. Second place, Kanye West and Jesus 2020, did quite well and were still more than ten

College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

When you come out to the Stone Church for quiz night, chat me up!
