I'll Ice Your Breaker
Kristina

"Well, this is it kid," she told herself as she looked into the mirror of the bathroom in the bar. "Now go out there and kick some quiz ass! Make me proud!" She tilted her chin up, straightened her back, and walked out ready to take on a bar full of quizzers. She dazzled them with her computer skills, she played the mic beautifully... Alright, alright, she did ok. The quiz tonight was the real star. With its cockney slang, its stinky cheese, and of course bird watching. Tonight was one for the ages, and the quiz pulled it off. And sure, after the quiz master stopped having a shake in her voice, she did great, too. It came down to the final matchup, two teams facing one on one,

It came from El Segundo!
Admiral Cabbage

There was time when I couldn't be bothered to bring a side dish to a neighborhood bbq.  bt those days are behind me.  i get it now.  i understand the importance of a good side dish.  a dish that could, if the pit master is a fool, could outshine the meat.  a dish that could be the talk of the town for weeks to come.  a dish that could vault itself in to the pantheon of "world famous" as in, Mom is bringing her "World Famous Cherry Pie" to the bbq this weekend.  yeah, i now understand how something like that....can make your life feel fulfilled.  I don't have that dish quite yet in my arsenal but I will keep trying.  i will keep pushing myself

It's the least wonderful time of the year!
Major Tom

'Tis the season! No, not the season of the pumpkin spice everything. Not the season of never ending horror movies on TV. Not the season of leaves changing color and sweaters. It's Barely Dressed Unreasonably Drunk Sorority Girl Season! This is the time of the year when, at any given moment during a Quiz, a group of girls will stumble into the Dub screaming whatever nonsense they scream about, boobs hanging out all over the place, dresses just barely coming down to below-butt length, and will make their way to the bar to order various kinds of shots. If you were a betting person, you could probably make a very safe bet by guessing that those shots will be Harry Potter shots. Flames will erupt,

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Japan is actually not a City
David

Drunks who Geek celebrated a little too early, they were pretty excited about Japan being a city, unfortunately upon further review it is not. Still they had a pretty good name, so we'll give them a past.  The newcomers Gus Folds Under Pressure (Or is Gus Breaks under Pressure? The world may never know) proved not to be chokers as they took first with a come from behind victory. The Rick James Experience took 2nd with a strong finish, and ??? rounded out the top 3.

The One Where I Talk About My Lactose Intolerance
WhitneyWhitworth

Mon petit quizzards- another day in the books! First, I would like to welcome our newest score keeper, Kristin. Personally, I think we need to come up with the most bad ass nick name this side of the University Bridge for her. If you have any suggestions, I will reward the best one with a shot from the bar next week. I’m dead cereal. I’m also forgetful, so you’ll have to remind me… maybe… probably.   Here are a few things I want to remind/inform you of, before I get to the leader board. First, my fish at work died today. He was a magical neopluradon, or some sort of sucker fish whose dinosaur name evades me. His actual name was never determined-

It's A Fun Visual Also...
Please don't call me Matt. I hate that.

Probably my favorite part of the Quiz last night was getting to read the words “Inhaling a fart in a jar was prescribed as a cure for the bubonic plague” and what made it even better was the fact that the answer was “true (it didn’t work)”. It’s good to know that even in the dark ages people were pulling massive practical jokes on a huge audience - you can think of them as some of the earliest trolls, long before 4Chan even existed (when the internet was just a twinkle in our great great great (etc) grandfather’s eye) and even predating the old “pull my finger” bit that now holds the coveted “fart-related

In a perfect world he would Quiz Monday-Friday and spend the weekend building stupid old cars, but in this imperfect world he only gets to Quiz once a week and he doesn't even have a driver's license. He is working on the formula for making that perfect world happen, but until then you'll just have to settle for that one night a week.

When no otherwise preoccupied with work or shit like that you can find him cursing at the Rockies game on the vintage radio in his garage while he pretends to be productive with a bike or some such, or just walking around.

If you want to give him a gift his favorite things in the world are anything vintage, baseball-related, or Italian. He also accepts cash.

Apparently everyone knows their funky smells..
Kelli

Even with the fair in town we still had a great turn out with 14 teams at Transplants Brewery! After spending the day with high school students I SO look forward to being around adults that I can make inappropriate jokes with, hand out coins with dicks on them for free beers, and laugh at their team names (like IPA lot or The Blumpkins).  The best round by far was the emotional roller coaster that was #7. I love seeing that epiphany of recognition to a TV show and the sad, sad confusion of one they haven't the slightest idea about :) Our evening was closer than Angelina Jolie and her brother with only 9 points separating the top 5 teams in the end! Thank you to all

Back To School Week Brings In New Geeks
Caleb

As San Marcos residents, & students welcomed back all of the returning residents, Treff's Tavern in San Marcos saw it's most popular night yet. With 9 teams playing on Wednesday night, there was a lot of bragging rights up for grabs. Those rights however, didn't change hands for very long.   The Cool Chick and Some Dicks (also known often as just the cool chicks) had the lead throughout the entire quiz, up until the last round. They hit the joker early on, after the first audio round and held a steady lead until they realized their random knowledge wasn't as strong as they were hoping it would be. They would end up finishing 4th, and letting

Another great one last night. These GWD editors are on a roll with some really fantastic content, themes and variety. They are the real stars. Speaking of stars, I was certainly not the shiniest last night. Huge shout out to a hopefully new member of the Geeks Who Drink fam, Stephanie! She did an awesome job with Round 4, helping me score, and was a great sport for the surprise shots we did right before the quiz started. I hope you all liked her as much as I did, and hope to have her back in some capacity soon. Given that she got a bigger cheer and round of applause that I literally ever have, I think you do indeed agree. Also, huge thanks for the spreadsheet idea. I’ll leave that little

QuizMistressA

Guess who came back?  Nope. Unfortunately, not Liz. Fortunately it WAS Stephen Hawkings Dance Academy! True to their word! They said last week they'd be new regulars. I was skeptical though. I've heard it before. But they were there and they were awesome! They are tons of fun. And they are good for my self esteem. They wrote me notes and said such nice things to me. I had to break it to them that they only get points in my heart, not on the quiz. I got a couple looks of disappointment but Brooklyn still had my back. Solidarity sister! Even feeling uninspired, Arts 'N Farts still managed another hilarious team photo!

So Many Dildos, So Little Time
TheHypnotoad

Back with the regular team at Spider House, and you can tell UT is totally back in session. Great to see familiar faces and totally never argue about politics. Round one we had some action movie rhyme time, and I'm pretty sure the correct answer is always Blade, even when it isn't. Music round we asked for artist's that have the same name, and I shamed everyone who didn't get Mark Morrison. Bad smells have never bothered this allergy-sufferer, so I didn't even have to plug my nose for round three. We mentioned my future wife Aubrey Plaza in round four, as that is all you really need to know. The visual round was one of my favorite of all time, though I'm sad we couldn't find

Welcome back to the Geeks fold, Oakland! Overland County Bar And Grill was our first Oakland foray, and we're glad to have the back. And our quizzers from Oakland are glad to have this great venue back. As you may or may not know, I lived deep in the heart of Texas (Austin, to be specific) for over a decade, and even got introduced to the wonderful ways of GWD back there (Shout out to RJ for getting me hooked at the Moontower Saloon, and my awesome teammates who continue to dominate various South Austin venues).

Funky Pisco
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

I have not tried Pisco yet. I wonder if it is good with ice cream. Or if it is a sipping drink. I will have to keep an eye out for the opportunity to try it. Speaking of trying new things the Imperial Pumpkin is back at Dry Dock. A seasonal favorite of all the locals. I highly recommend it if you have not yet tried it. Thanks for joining me on this cool, damp eve. I too am looking forward to the fall. Spiced, pumpkin everything. The sweet scent of changing leaves. The cool night air and warm days. It is nice to see the hops on the vines ready to be plucked and brewed. Friendly, sun kissed faces are coming in to gather as the days wane. And the show goes on every week from the buds

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

Where did you all come from? That doesn't matter, just keep coming back! GWD is basically AA but with booze, y'know? At least that's what my blurry memory of last night tells me.
