All good things...
Weapon Z

It is with a heavy heart, that I relinquish the hosting duties at Weld Werks Brewing Company.  It has been two months to the day that I was asked to pop in there to fill in.  Originally, it was just to fill in for two weeks.  Two weeks turned into three.  Three turned into four, and so on.  Weld Werks has truly began to feel like a home away from home for me. This blog might become slightly sentimental, so bear with me.  First off: I need to thank the staff at Weld Werks.  Specifically (and in no particular order):  Kristen (or maybe sometimes Krystal), you have been totally awesome!  Thanks for letting me crash your Wednesday

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.

Someone put #TeamTim on a milk carton!
Anne

What a night of ups and downs!  We had some rough rounds, and some strong highs!  No one knew that inhaling farts in a jar was once thought to cure the bubonic plague, but they all seemed to think that burning poop and hair kept the Germans away.     Where was #teamtim?!?!?  We are sending a search party!  You have never missed a quiz.  I am worried like the Jewish mother I am.  j/k kids are gross, but I am a Jew.   That BoJack Horseman question made me wonder, “Are we ever going to have a BoJack theme

When the Mighty Fall
The Fortress

  Last night I saw the funnies thing...a humble team. When scores for the first 3 round were read, the currently place team responded with “**gasp** we’re winning!” It was the cutest thing that has ever happened at quiz that wasn’t a baby. Much funnier to me (because I’m a jerk) is when a team who technically came in late won first place when all was said and done. :P   With 8 teams last night, the action was on! The team name theme was mythical creatures, the contenders for best team name were   Odin’s

Yeah, well what can I say about myself...A LOT! 

But I won't. I'm just your regular quiz-mistressing chick on in the city. Sounds like a million dollar sitcom idea to me. 

Actually QM's are more of 250K reality show idea on MTV. My show would be akin to Jersey Shore, but no fist pumping or pregnant short people. 

...but back to me. I'm called The Fortress...no idea why though, so come out and see me in action and maybe we can come up with some ideas why together!

Taking the Pisco
Bobby

Hot damn I love a pisco sour. A bunch of people got that question wrong today, so I’m concerned you guys don’t know what they are. Lemme walk you hot dogs through it:Pisco is essentially a brandy, or distilled wine they make in South America. A pisco sour is a cocktail you then make with that stuff. It consists of pisco, lemon juice, simple syrup, and then the best part - a whipped egg white foam that you throw a few dashes of angostura bitters onto. Hot damn is it tasty. Like everything in South America it’s the subject of a territorial dick measuring contest as to who really “owns” it; Peru or Chile, but its known for sure that it was invented by

Tuesday Quiz is back and I, for one, am thrilled to see all of your lovely faces again. I’m just kidding, your faces are inconsequential! I care only for your correct answers!!! It may have been a slow reintroduction with only 5 teams appearing for our comeback quiz but I think a nice intimate session was just what the doctor ordered to set the mooooood. Was it good for ya’ll? It was good for me ;) Hey, remember that time I showed all of ya’ll the answers to round two for a brief second because I forgot the projector was still on? Yeah, me neither….

WELCOME BACK!! Ok, WE never left, nor did the faithful summer Geeks who came out to The Den all summer long, but now, it’s a fresh fish buffet of students returning for a semester of learning, football and maybe a beer or two. But, what is REALLY important to talk about today is that it’s NATIONAL WAFFLE DAY!!  One of my favorites, and so many things can be done with waffles – let’s discuss this delightful carb for a few. Waffles are preceded, in the early Middle Ages, around the period of the 9th–10th centuries, with the simultaneous emergence of fer à hosties / hostieijzers (communion

Money Pits
Alison C

They say that boats are the world’s largest money pits.  I’ve found that in the last month or so that I disagree.  I’ve had the worst possible luck in the last month as it relates to my car!  Never has my misfortune struck so consistently.  They have started to recognize me at the car dealership!  And yes, I always take it to the dealership because good relationships breed trust and happiness.  And, ya’know, I have road hazard coverage.  So earlier this week when I got a screw in my tire, they replaced my tire for free. However, when they had to replace a plastic part underneath my runner lights earlier, they charged

I normally don’t drink during the quiz. Felt a little crazy. Had a cider. I know, I should settle down. Shout out to Booty Hole Burn for playing tonight! They are a team made up of friends and coworkers at Jerk. Round 1 was made so you would all be competitive. And you were! Mostly perfect scores on his one. Round 2 was a different story.

Meghalaya Isn’t as Wet as The Moonlite Bunny Ranch Platypuses
Biggs

The night was cool and the people were hella cooler. Owner Glen was in work mode that had him lining up kegs, bartender Ashley had to get a ride from work because someone stole her boke (if you see it let…karate chop instead of calling a cop) and I was feeling overworked when I step downstairs, but literally everyone who showed up to play made my Tuesday one of the best. For vittles I knocked out some mini corn dogs dipped in spicy mustard. Grown men food. The musical playlist for the evening had everyone on in some kind of motion because it was an all-out transportation mix that started off on the “Crazy Train” with Ozzy and we ended our night flying high on a “Jet

The Night Everywhere Else Was Apparently Closed
Quizmaster Soss

Was the Olive Garden closed or something?  More than a few of you popped into my quiz party tonight and more than a few of you proved you deserved a place at the table.  The audio song title round had an average score of 12, which in my opinion is the threshold of when you should use your joker.  And in fact, that was where the majority of teams used it.  But it was Touched By A Dangle that really hit a stride tonight.  They took a commanding first place by missing only five questions the whole night.  If my memory serves me correct, that is a new Bar Named Sue record (previously it was six).  Interestingly, the 2nd place team, Grandma's

All Wrapped Up
Vertigo Chuck

There comes a time when you need to choose between things like, what brand of instant ramen has the least amount of MSG. You might also wonder what the difference is between name-brand and store-brand oyster crackers if you are just going to put them in your soup to get soggy in the first place. I once had a friend who could tell the difference in taste between different colored M&Ms. I almost forgot what the HTML code was for an ampersand. Phew for text editors that change font types and styles for coding parameters. WYSIWYG can stand aside for that one. Anyway, I couldn't understand it. Even if I close my eyes for a while and concentrate on my taste buds, I can't tell the difference

I'm Charles, Charlie, Chuck, whatever non-derogatory nickname you can think of for Charles. Even though I started QuizMastering at the HandleBar Tavern in December '11, I have quizzed in dozens of places for years. Our teams never quite won anything, but we always have a good time racking our brains for those little tidbits of info that GWD requires nightly.

I am definitely a geek. That picture is of me swinging from two phonebooks leafed together. Yeah, just like Mythbusters used to make. A physicist by trade, I don my mask and head out into the night partying hard and consuming various social lubricants.

Join me at my quiz and I will try to swoon you with my dulcet tones of vector calculus and Star Wars references. If you are really lucky, catch me with my Rubik's cube and I will get rid of its entropy faster than takes a grown man (or woman) to change a toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll)1.

If only Stephen Baldwin hadn’t eaten his triplet brothers in the womb we may have been able to say that their combined height is greater than that of the rainiest place on earth...if only.  That being said, I’m sure that Alec would argue his ora extends his height to at least 17’.  But that being said as well, they’re a pile of douches and who gives a shit.  What I do give a shit about is the wonderful quizzers of the RAM who graced me with their presence last evening.  Fantastic showing as usual and some very surprising last round change ups from the crowd in attendance.  It's amazing what the right combination

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

Welcome to Quiz at Rose and Crown Goofy Goobers. You had a great showing for a team that showed up halfway through round two. Also you absolutely killed it on the bonus questions. Congradulations on your win Its a Lure! For any other team a 96 score would be cause for celebration, but for you guys it was just a Tuesday. RIP Gomez. Impressive turn around victory TR. Its always more fun when you guys make it competitive. And pokepuppy you guys held it down in the last place as always. While you may have been last place in point you are first place in courage for braving that Rose and Crown porch heat every week. And that was last night more or less.

A Dream I Imagined I Had
RockyMontagel

In a vague and dusty past I had a job that required me to wake up around 4AM to be on time. Being up before the sun can be disconcerting especially when I was used to staying up until the sun came up. Speaking of the sun: anyone who has worked outside for extended periods of time in a climate such as ours knows that the sun is the hammer and you are the nail. And it's a burning hot hammer, which maybe makes it more of an iron-working metaphor that I should be intending ... whatever. In addition to the sun there is also the windblown dust and sand that seemingly works its way in everywhere. If what I just described reminds you of the beach, please edit your mind-conjured beach to include no
