New Year New You Round Two
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Good Evening Geeks of Wyman's!  How nice it is is to see you all again. One of these weeks I am going to come play when Ellen hosts so I can see how the other half lives. This bar is sweet and perfect for quizzing in. I love your dedication to the game and that is it easy to hear audio rounds. Also, that pizza looks amazing.  Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year! May you have good fortune and a second shot at your OG resolution. Or just make new ones. I am opting for choice B. Way back in the month of January, I committed to getting my shit together. Along the way I realized shit is fine and I should focus instead on just living life. So there you go, second shot.

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

Chicken Soup for the Muslim Soul

What every good quiz needs, a healthy dose of insensitivity, racism, and a dash of soup.  This was my favorite answer of the evening, so mad-props to my fourth place team, Quiz or Quiz Out You, thank you for making me laugh. Thanks to my first and third place teams for bringing me edible goodies.  You’re my favorites, don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise*. I’m so glad you all came out to quiz tonight.  I knew I was running the risk of competing against the soft opening of Alamo Drafthouse’s new location, so the turnout was infinitely greater than I expected.  Thanks for exceeding my expectations.  I love

Apart from two misguided years in my youth, I've been a tried and true Texan all my life.

Here's a little bit about me: 

  • Shamelessly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, Supernatural, film, and BBC Sherlock.
  • Did gymnastics for 9 years...and yes, I can still do a flip.
  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!

So come swing by and say hi!

Sunny Days
The Duke of Allston

Can somebody explain to me the point of putting Sesame Street on HBO?  I thought that was an Onion article when I read the news about that.  You're a non-profit organization, so why take the new episodes off of free television?  Better yet, why is the show only half an hour now?  I have an adult Facebook friend who loves Sesame Street, and he was catatonic that they cut the show to 30 minutes.  He thrives on his routines, so I feel for the guy.  Also, Oscar should have been orange the whole time.  Why did they make him green?   I don't have answers for those questions, but you folks had plenty of correct answers for tonight's music

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

Writing this while drunk and watching the Bachelor
Lindsleazy

I'm Lindsleazy and last weekend I spent $60 on payperview hotel movies. And they weren't even pornographic! Monday was much better because I got to host at Slake Week #2! And together we filled Matthew Perry's Hole and sang the All That theme song and dreamt about the Lance Bass theatre career that coulda been.  What we learned on Monday Night: -Sesame Street is a lot different than I remember it being. But I'm definitely gonna go watch that James Blunt video ASAP. -Aaron Eckhart has been in more than one movie apparently! Everyone had a really hard time recognizing

Sesame Street Did What?
EricBurch

It was a brawl to get through the (admittedly lacking) snowstorm, and only a few choice teams were willing to risk their lives to make it to Fado Irish Pub. Not that that meant the people that made it were, how do I put it...smart. Our winning team thought that Sesame Street covered the Bloodhound Gang. A large number of people can't spell Tennessee. One team even thought that Michael Dukakis ran for president in 2008. Unfortunately for us, someone had to actually take home prizes this week. Two Mannings One Cup jumped onto the podium for the first time, taking home the second place prize. But it was Council Of Trent making it two in a row with another victory!

What are the freaking odds, man?! I'm in the middle of round 3 where we are determining if the quote is from an episode of Lost or a Lincoln commercial with Matthew McConnaughey and lo and behold, but in the middle of a question on comes a fucking Lincoln commercial with Matthew fucking McConnaughey and the fucking subtitles are on!!! I couldn't believe it! Of course, one of my quizzers noticed and pointed it out and I was baffled by the uncanny fucking odds of having that happen. Mind=blown!!! Pow pow pow! Just a bunch of weird stuff going on honestly. A Macklemore song is on Round 2 and I had a Macklemore song in my playlist and then my friend Travis that I ran into right after determining

Brydon

Hooray for quiz at WIbby's! It's been two weeks too long since we got our quiz on over here and the enthusiasm that y'all showed proved it.   Our super awesome first place winners this week were super bowl celebrating Papa Von's Organic Chicken, and second place went to Lethal Erection, who managed to make the first (of many) team names this year that I wouldn't say in front of my mother. I have high hopes for the rest of this year, y'all. Keep that in mind.   We learned all kinds of things this eveningl   Some of you believe that we ought to ban people convicted

Happy Chinese New Year! So my Mandarin is terrible, you already knew that.  I can't even properly ready a phonetically spelled Gung Hay Fat Choy.  We had a great crowd for quiz tonight thanks to the young independent voters club having their mixer at Calhoun's.  The wait staff was hustlin and as always did a great job with the food and drink for us. Our geeks were smarter and prettier than normal tonight.  Beauty and brains.  Two things, the Hugh Jackman of quizzers.   We learned several things tonight.

Eating things is fun
Jules

Things that are apparently okay to eat: A Table A Baby A Monkey A Panda   Things that are apparently not okay to eat: See Quiz   Things that I do not like to eat: Saurkraut Pickles Curry Anything with the word Halupki in it   I feel like we both know each other so much better now! Anyway, Mothra Theresa took an early first place lead, but were quickly overcome by Dances With Crabs (wow….that sounds just wrong). We had a 3 way tie for third place for most of the night, but in the end Trump took the point (eek) and left everyone else in the dust.

Revenge of the Nameless
Mark, International Man of Intrigue

As Dave was absent another time, and I stepped in, we’ve learned one more time that his usuals still don’t know my name. It became their bane this time too. Long may the name of Mark ring through the halls of ECB. Or something. ANYWAYS. We had six teams brave the snow tonight. As I overheard one patron at the bar say tonight, he was from Colorado and he brought the snow with him. So, blame that guy for the crap weather for the rest of the week. Come on dude. We were on such a roll. The evening’s themes were an interesting blend. We celebrated the past that went missing in Matthew Perry’s drug induced haze, the past as built by the Chinese, the

Thanks everyone who came out Tuesday night we had a totally inconspicuous quiz. Definitely not a secret theme quiz about [REDACTED]. T-Rexes in F-14s took home first place for a second time. While I thought this was speed dating finished in very respectable second. Don't worry neither the first nor second place teams are part of the illuminati. I Promise.

[Insert Title I Promised the Pints] + PUPPIES
QM Colleen

I saw the Puppy Bowl SO MANY TIMES yesterday. I got to Nox fairly early due to awkward scheduling gaps between my activities. So much room for activities. When I arrived the Puppy Bowl was on both TVs. I thought watching sportsball in black and white was classy and awesome - black and white PUPPIES are way better. Apparently the Puppy Bowl is only a couple of hours long so I think I saw most if not all of it, just out of order. I even remember some of the players' names: Puddin' Pop, Marnie (the awkward dog with the lopsided tongue).... there were more. Probably a Scout in there. More than once I watched a puppy interest segment about a mother dog teaching her hesitant puppy

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

I was pretty impressed with the turn out for Quiz on Dooper Bowl Sunday! Scorekeeper Kelly was decked out in her Bronco's gear, so she was feeling pretty generous when scoring for the Quiz. With 14 teams, we had a great quiz! The "omaha" round was pretty humorous. As a sub, I never know how the night will turn out, as it's not "my" crowd, but these guys were accepting and heckling, which I always appreciate. My favorite team name was "The Quizmaster is on the coaster", as I am a dead ringer for Sassy Pink Quizster. No ties that needed dance offs. I think next time I'll fake a tie just to get folks up and dancin' ;)
