This Quiz is Guaranteed to Make You Wet (Because It's Raining)
Lord of Pirates

So without fail for the last few weeks when I host a quiz on Tuesdays at the glorious Flat Earth Brewing Co. I end up in the middle of a rain storm. Fortunately for being in an abandoned beer factory it's warm inside and we're protected from the elements. Let's get into last nights quiz.   In Round One we got down and dirty, in which all of our answers contained one of those two words. Most of our teams aced this round. They knew the Clint Eastwood movie based on the Zodiac killings was "Dirty Harry" and regular explosives + radioactive material makes a dirty bomb. Where one team had issues was in identifying the two-word phrase Poison wants the ladies to do to them (Talk

Talk Dirty to Me
Christie B

Happy Tuesday y’all! We had a super fun quiz night tonight. Several new teams showed up to play, and we had a great time. A couple of things: Round One was Down and Dirty, which wasn’t as dirty as you might think. However, there was one questions that got a little bit racy, and I couldn’t really blame people for going there. The questions was, “Poison and Jason Derulo both had hits asking ladies to do what two-word phrase to them? About half of the teams wrote “go down”. Let’s be honest, that’s a totally fair guess, and it fit within the theme of the round. However, the correct answer was “talk dirty”. Get

Welcome back kiddos! Unkle Gonzo Gomez, your host who loves to toast is back in control of the good ship U.S.S. GeeksWhoDrink! It’s been a while (Month and half!!!) since we’ve been a suitable captain for hosting. There was the post Birthday Shenanigans and then that’s it. No hosting for 6 weeks! It’s been a month and a half what with an extended wedding party vacation for our good co-host Tawn and then a brief vacay for reasons that shall not be named. Shout out my Voldemort fans…. I mean shit; He who shall not be named fans. Sorry everyone. It’s been a while. It felt good, I was back in the game, set up on time, and had a blast seeing friends

Fancy Pants Bars
Jake

Hello, Shanahan’s! I love this bar. I haven’t said that in a while, but Shanahan’s has got just enough of everything to make it near and dear to my heart. And the food is incredible. What is it that Melody calls it? A five-star dive bar? Exactly. I remember a trip to Denver a few years ago, and an excursion to the fancy pants area near downtown. I think the conversation went something like this: Me: I'll take a screwdriver. Bartender: Did you mean a swervedriver? Me: Uhh, what's that? Bartender: Well, we take a French vodka that's been shipped to Sweden to get it naturalized citizen status, and then

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

The Bearded One

Most of our Beerhaus regulars don't know me since the last time I hosted there was during a special soft open event, but I really appreciate all the compliments and positive comments folks had for me tonight. Even more so for what happened before the quiz than for what happened at the quiz. See, I drive this old, beat up, '93 Ford Explorer, and it's been showing it's age pretty badly this summer. My AC went out because some rotor completely froze up, and I was kind of amazed by how well the thing still ran with the timing belt passing over this dead rotor. "Shouldn't there be some kind of friction problem here?" I asked myself, as if my self knew anything about cars. Turns out I was

I love me some Swiss!  I have the coolest teams and I’m always getting new ones.  Tonight was no different.   We kicked off quiz with a round on Down and Dirty.  It was a killer round!  We had a 5-way tie for top score and each of those teams scored a perfect 8: The Dynamic Duo, Quizted Sisters, Win or Lose We Booze, Make Donald Drumpf Again, and Griffey Jr. for President.   Audio round two was ALSO pretty spectacular.  Teams had to name the artists and the one-word titles of these songs, which were in alphabetical order.  Make Donald Drumpf Again took the top score for the round AND used

Bo Diddley Is Your Bartender
CLAY-TON, The Impostor

Hello Conservitorians!   If you were paying attention to the music I was playing tonight, you possibly noticed some repetition in regards to artists. I have an immense playlist in Itunes devoted to Quiz music, which I put on ‘shuffle’ for the festivities. But for some reason tonight it kept turning back upon itself and giving me the same artists over and over. Two tracks apiece were heard from The Smiths, Van Halen, and Sir Douglas Quintet (By proxy—one number was the SDQ, and another was a cover by Los Lobos). Three songs were heard by Bo Diddley—all the more remarkable because there are only five numbers by him in my digital library ATM.   Like

No Millennials, You Can’t Have An Alternate Question…
Miss LaLa

What can I say? Be born sooner! Actually the secret here is to have a well rounded team. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 69 times! The secret to a well rounded team is as follows! “The music buff, the film and tv nerd, the sports nerd, the history buff, the current event/geography nerd and the wildcard. Now ideally these Geeks will vary in ages and life experience.” Now I’m not gonna tell you again!   Now that the Olympics are officially at an end and I have nothing to watch, I think I’ll go to Burning Man! Obviously, my favorite team name tonight was I

What a great night of pub quiz, we had. Apart from a round covering all things “down” and “dirty”, an alphabetically-titled audio round, a special extra 16-point Round 3, a question about military ranks in Dune, and a round all about rain, I think we can all agree that the icing on the cake was the Video Round of Hitler movies, including the now eternal Internet classic Downfall.

Wherein QuizMistress A chats about Innuendos
QuizMistressA

A couple of weeks back, I asked a QM friend for a blog topic. Being the smart ass that he is, he said, "hobos in paradise." I laughed. And then googled it. I promptly found a a Youtube video of a song by that name. It was mostly terrible. It had 8 views. Now it has 12. SUCCESS!    BTW, I LOVED the Lion King shirt!   I've included a picture of Toilet Cat aka Reba the Cat. She so cute and fluffy and white and loves the toilet tank. So it stands to reason I should take pictures of her on the toilet. She kinda looks like a lion. I don't think she'll be singing songs anytime soon though.    My

The Rain in Spain is eating through my Brain
Kent

Hey there Quiz Folk. So, what happened? Where were you? I walked into Moe’s tonight and almost tripped over a lone rolling tumbleweed because the place was abandoned. It was empty. Deserted. One couple was on the bowling side having a most-consecutive gutter-ball contest and on the Bar-side there was one couple sharing a beer and one dude sitting at the bar charging his iPhone. Eventually some teams wandered in and set up positions but we topped out at Four. Last week we had 11 teams, the week before that we had 89 teams. What is going on with the Englewood quiz community that I never have any idea what I am walking into. I used to be the Quizmaster at The Irish Rover

Thanks for everyone who came out and played the Quiz for a Cause to support the Jackson Elementary School Annual Fund!  We raised a couple hundred dollars to help kids develop their knowledge and skills in STEM fields and we can pat ourselves on the back for not being completely horrible people.   Tonight we saw the ultimate showdown between ACB and Knowing is ½ the Battle come to a head.  The teams were within a point of each other after every round, so it definitely was not going to be a pretty ending.  Ultimately, a two-point difference in Round 8 led ACB to victory, pushing Knowing is ½

Yes that’s right, the quizmaster becomes the quiz-schooled! Earlier today I accidentally deleted all of the things! Ohhhhh… it’s never happened before and let’s cross our fingers and toes that it never happens again! So I’m sorry that this was a little delayed - technology happened. More likely it was user error!   So I may have mentioned before that I’m in full on Burning Man freak out mode! Pack all the things! Go to the thrift store “one last time” again!

Yayyyyyy More fun. Man, what a turnout! Only thing better that spreading love all over someone is spreading said love all over many people. At once. All over them. Mmmm. Where was I? Ah, yes. Musings. Let us muse. The Zodiac Jerk was never caught. We treat serial killers who are never caught like musicians who die young. Weird parallel. "Dirty Bomb" sounds like a sex move. "Dirty Dozen" sounds like a porno. Maybe I just need to work out some things. When I ask girls to talk dirty to me, I get turndown service. Zing. France prolly has it right, I mean, 35 hour workweek seems legit. It's only 5 less than what ours is "supposed" to be. Work. Pshh. I wonder where the Oak Leaf symbol

I can’t escape it. It haunts me. Every bar I pass, every jukebox with classics. Every slow jam guitar cover at Ikea. From Indian restaurants to lunch breaks at Brio…...Toto’s Africa will forever follow me. And I guess I just have to live with it? No matter how hard I try, Toto is my personal troll.
