Don't Ask Chuck Liddell to Divide by Zero
SonyaDee

Oh, hey! Some of y’all are true Coloradans…sub-freezing temps and a little unpredicted snow on the road aren’t gonna keep YOU from Quiz! Somebody had to make the cooks at McCabe’s make all those GIANT burritos…it might as well have been us. I couldn’t even eat half of mine, much to the pleasure of my husband, who gets all of my Quiz leftovers. And now it’s all gone and I can’t stop dreaming about it. I wish I had taken a picture. That Ancho Pork Chili concoction on the top of that burrito was unreal. Ugh. We had a nice, quiet Quiz this week. I love it when we have the whole restaurant to ourselves, which is rare. It makes the Quiz seem

Brennan Blogs

I thought I’d do something different and get a quizzer’s perspective of pub quiz. Guest writing the blog today is Brennan, one of my most loyal quizzers:   ____________________________________________________________   It snowed. At first the bar was empty, then it filled up as the snow began to fall. It went from about four teams to about ten in a matter of five minutes. There was a loud football game that no one cared about except for the two loud people who weren’t playing quiz. There was a loud as fuck party in the Snug in the back, and they looked at us like we were weird. Fuck those guys.  But no, they were ok.   Russ

Miranda

Hello! Another great Thursday night at the B. Nektar Taproom!  It was nearly a full house! That cold weather has you guys just flocking in! And we're starting to have a lot more regular faces in each week! That makes me very happy indeed!   This week we talked about the continued reign of one Nancy Pelosi, sang along with old friend Prince, and had you guessing which crazy holiday traditions actually existed. We discussed the life's work of Donny Osmund, identified decades of historical photos, and clued you in on some literary characters.

And stop trying to ruin pizza
Cousin Chet

I think that we might have been a little hard on KellyAnne Conway last night. I mean yes, she helped get the most unqualified president in the history of nation elected. And she constantly goes on cable news to lie and defend some of the worst shit you’ll ever hear. But look into her eyes. Look deep into her eyes and you can tell that she doesn’t want to be doing this. She realizes she sold her soul and that all of this is a complete and utter nightmare. In a way, you almost feel sorry for her. And then she opens her mouth again. I know this might be controversial, and I’m story about that. We sometimes court controversy here. But one thing that isn’t controversial

Is It Snowing?
R-Kenny

Sick of that yet? I'm pretty sure I asked you about the snow like 34 times during quiz. I'm sorry. I was just REALLY pumped about the idea of actual snow. Weren't you? OK, fine. If you had to drive anywhere last night or today, that would have been bad. I got to walk home in the snow. It was lovely. I'm certainly no romantic, but I may or may not have just stood outside my apartment for 15 minutes after I got there just to enjoy the snow. The sound and smell are both great. Seattle snow is, confirmed, the best snow. It's never around long enough to get dirty and we don't usually get SO much that it's a problem. Seattle's already a pretty town. It's even better covered in snowy white goodness....

Let's Get Down to Business!
Murray

I cannot ever hear that phrase in anything other than Donny Osmond’s voice. I didn’t even know that was him until last night. Also, c’mon Disney, Donny Osmond as a Chinese man? At least Lea Salonga is from the right continent (even if she had already been Jasmine. Then again, she is phenomenal.) Besides celebrating Donny Osmond, we also unfortunately reviewed recent politics because who doesn’t like being depressed around the holidays? I also got to school you on La Befana because apparently none of you watched John Hammond explain it to Matilda in the terrible/amazing remake of Miracle on 34th Street. I knew that would come in handy one

Hey have you heard about my best frands?
Osman

My frands came to quiz last night. I'm going to talk about my fraaaaands.That's Herrerbear. He's a cybernerd. He'll cyber with you anytime you want. And you'll like it.Then, there's Ms. Fairy Smile. She's got hair like a great, big ball of yarn. She would make the ideal protagonist in a children's book. Next up, we got Jackie Boy. This guy's a stud! He's got great handles, a strong work ethic, and unmatched basketball IQ. His main weakness is off-the-court distractions. If he puts his nose to the grindstone, keeps grinding, keeps chopping, then this kid's going places in this league.Lori's in the back, she's just photobombing.

Better Than You?
Quizmistrix Lalenya

Or Better Than No One... That's alright though, cuz Better Than You totally gets Most Enthusiastic Team!  Even though they tried to joker Round 4 when they only got 2 correct. But who is Better Than You?  Rural Juror, that's who!  They scored a whoppin' 15 points in Round 8, and pulled out a squeaker of a win.  All teams ended up jokering in 8, and most of them did get into double digits.  Nice job! Stephen Hawking's School Of Dance had the lead all game, but then had to settle for 2nd.  Gone Glenn and Castro's Track Suit tied, but since we don't

There's always time to redeem yourself, 2016!
Keith

Round 7 featured a list of people 2016 could go ahead and take from us that wouldn't break our hearts (unlike everybody else you decided to kill this year, you bastard!) I mean, Bill Cosby is likely to be nominated to serve as Trump's advisor on women's rights. Maybe if 2016 slipped a little sleepy juice into his wine we might just be better off in 2017. The clue on Jared Fogle included a clip from a Subway ad that mentioned how he had two kids. Some savvy quizzers pointed out that he had a lot more than two (funny guys, but too soon.) We had a lot of hissing about number 8, Adam Sandler, but really, what has the guy done to advance humanity? I mean, I laugh at juvenile stuff from time

Bagel Friday, Bitches!
Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

Who made bagel Fridays a thing? Whoever it was absolutely gets credit for this blog getting done because these late night trivia sessions got me yawning all morning. I do it for you guys though. And for the love of the game. And also for the BBQ truck that’s always parked outside of Idle Hour when the quiz is over. The competitive spirit was really flowing last night! Feisty and mighty teams Carl Winslow’s Police Funeral, Unlikely Krajewski and 5 Guys A Girl & A Pizza Place proved they know a thing or two… just a thing or two less than our top placing teams of the evening. Third place team, Thrillhouse, did not

Not Quite Dead Yet
Julie

Maaan 2016 has been a bear hasn’t it? And not like, a cute cuddly bear, a bear that you see at the zoo or anything like that, a straight up Leo mauling Revenant style bear. No love, no mercy, a year of downs and downs and downs like the part of Tower of Terror where the elevator drops but like, all the time. How many greats have we lost this year? SO many. Too many. Bowie, Rickman, Prince, John Glenn, America, my neighbor’s dog (he was a kind old soul) Gene Wilder, Shawty Lo, Mama Brady, my heart breaks just listing them all out. It’s been rough, it’s been harsh, it’s been a tumble down, but fear not, dear reader, for there is always hope. 2016 has taken so many

Building Momentum at Bohemian Hall
JoePilato

Following an aggressive sidewalk chalk campaign, the basement at Bohemian Hall found itself well-filled with quizzers who braved the cold to show off their knowledge of Donny Osmond. A few more weeks like this and we'll have to move the foosball table! Many players this week were new and thereby distraught at the prospect of beginning their quiz careers with a round on current event politics but they mustered through regardless, being rewarded with the company of their own personal Brendan Fraser (me). Joe, named lovingly after me, came out strong by getting this round 100% correct. Way to do the name proud! The audio round featured somewhat less than expected

Final Quiz-Down
Alison

Well well well, I showed up at my quiz last night and what to my wondering eyes should appear but the final pub quiz at the Chantey (for the season, anyway)! I'm excited I got to host since it was the final week. There were three teams to begin but only two stalwart crews stuck with me through to the end*, developing quite a rivalry!   Weirdly, one of my quizzers last night was a long list high school acquaintance whom I hadn't seen in years. Weirder still, he's apparently a QM from our rival dojo, Stump Trivia. But he chooses to play our quiz, so suck on that!    Audio wise, this was probably my best night since the venue was

New Perspectives AKA I sat in a new spot
Adam Jarmon Brown

Occasionally I’ll show up to the cube and my table will be taken. Not often, and it’s usually not a big deal. Most folks know that Geeks is Thursday night and I sit in the front by the outlets. But when I got to my venue tonight my table was taken. GASP. I hate, hate, hate, having to ask folks to move. I feel like i am interrupting their dinner and I don’t like feeling like a jackass by asking them to clear out. So I put my gear down and went to chat with a couple of regulars about our weeks. I noticed that the back corner table, opposite where I normally sit, also has power outlets and I could just as easily set up there. So

Have You Guys Even Heard Beyonce's "Single Ladies"?
Mark

There was much confusion over Beyonce's music last night. She appeared in the quiz twice, once in the audio round, when I played you her song "Ring the Alarm", and then she appeared again with a question about her duet, "Telephone", with Lady Gaga. Both times, most of you answered "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)". NO. That song is nothing like the crappy "Ring the Alarm." NO NO NO. And it's also not a duet with Lady Gaga. Putting Beyonce aside, it was a fantastic quiz with 12 eager, boisterous, virile teams! Pussy Grabs Back successfully held the lead the entire night. Is It Too Soon To Name Our Team After John Glenn? came in 2nd place and had no
