The 8-Bit Democratic National Convention (In Color!) (SAP Where Available)
SirYon

It’s finally happened. Wake up the kids. Call your mom. We’re now in color! Debuting at the Eagle Grill tonight were some brand new fancy-schmancy and super snazzy answer packets! Oooh! Aaah! I could get used to color. So tonight became a celebration of color, with team names ranging from critical evaluations to proclamations of unity by way of crayons. An amazing thing, technicolor. Just wait until we go digital.   Tonight’s quiz featured one of my favorite audio rounds. We got all 8-bitty technicolory and channeled our inner Zelda with round 2. I was tickled, but in the end, disappointed. Remember, kids: there is a big difference between Peter Gabriel

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

I'll Give YOU a Flat Stanley...
Jam Sammich

This time of year here in Washington is amazing... It's warm, sunny, and the nights are gorgeous. What better way to spend an evening in the falls laughing it up over some random knowledge items and talks of a rather illicit paper doll?!   Yet another fun night was had at SnoBrew last night as we covered a variety of rounds on 8-bit covers, a dirty, dirty round on a popular paper doll, and no night would be complete without our Random Knowledge round. After we made it through all 8, here's how the statistical dust settled:

Suddenly... Birthdays!
Kyle King

Hello humans and those of you who root for the Yankees without ever having stepped foot in New York. Fair weather fans... I hope yall enjoyed quiz last night. I did. Especially since the night before my laptop died on me at my other venue IN THE MIDDLE OF QUIZ and it screwed everything up. Tonight ran much smoother.  Apparently it was also everyone's birthday last night. I didn't plan on giving away 3 shirts last night but that's fine, the GWD Black T-Shirt is soon to be a hip fashion item. Even Oprah wants one. (She's a close, personal friend. I'll send her a XXXL)  Last night we had a record turn out! That is the most teams this venue has seen. Way

The Things Are Back!
Stefanie

They're back! The awesome things. Don't know what I'm talking about? No. You don't. Because you weren't there last night. Or were you? It was a small quiz. Very intimate. VERY. *wink* But we have things back. Remember, there were things we had. And then they went away. And you guys were like "oh man, bummer." But no more bummers. Because they are back. What to know what I'm talking about? Come to quiz and I'll show you. *wink* XOXO, Stefanie

Well hi there, thanks for stopping by.

You look lovely today.

My name's Stefanie, I'm from Dallas originally and have been hanging out in Houston for four years and love this giant, beautiful city and all it has to offer. 

I went to Texas State University and hung out for a while in Austin, so I guess you could say I get around.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and lying about things I enjoy.

Feel free to bring me presents, buy me beers, and tell me I'm pretty.

Close game at Grist -- plus Turn Down for What and Double Vision
Seth

Apologizing was the theme for our top two teams at Grist. Order was restored (for now) as Sorry Christine retook the crown as champion.  But they had another close game on their hands as Sorry Mark and Kyle came close to handing them another defeat. Klaus, but no Cigar, winners of a free-beer for being the first to mention my dog Klaus, also won a sudden death tiebreaker about Ohio, against the Quizzard of Oz to finish 3rd. I listened to those 8-bit versions of songs after the show. I might just add them to my playlists.  I still have “Turn

Give Everest a Rest
RESII

As round four noted, every year humans trash Mount Everest. There are literally tons of human excrement, bodies, and trash on the mountain face. And for what? Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world—and also one of the most dangerous places in the world. So many people who should not be climbing Everest have tried, with some paying the ultimate price. Save a life, climb a 14ner. /Rant over A dozen teams packed Three Lions but the winning team left little doubt; Tres Lobos had four people and a nearly perfect round two which helped them to victory. Stalwarts Touched by an Uncle finished strong to take second

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

A Night For Smaller Things...
Pope Pepe

If there’s one thing that will ruin a vacation, school event or store opening, it’s a costumed character. There’s nothing cool or good about them. They’re awkward, strange, and never are welcome. Sure, it might be neat to see your favorite TV, movie, or cartoon character come to life if you’re 5. Other than that, the only thing they’re good for is taking up space, making me cry, and kicking them in crotch. My history with the large headed monsters goes way back.Regular readers of this blog/recap will know that I was a fat kid. As such, there are certain things that go along with that. One of those was going to a regional fair that was a

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.

Steady as she goes @ Finnerty's this summer.  14 teams to start.  Very nice. Shout out to Last Time I Said It Was a Joke But This Time I Really Need You To Know This Is Not A Team Name I Have VD for what I consider immense dedication.  They wrote that entire name on every sheet.  They finished in 5th this week but I hope will come back. Newcomers Foley's Angels had a nice showing finishing in 2nd place....SUH DUDE Guilty By Association who only missed 11 total points last night won in a landslide.  They should show up more often!

One of these days, we'll stop having ties. Last night, there was a tie for second between Make Trivia Great Again and Brainz & Gainz. Brainz & Gainz had a better unjokered total, but Make Trivia Great Again was one of two teams (along with our winners - Screw You, Commies!) to ace the music round and really maximize the joker's value. After a heated sudden death round, Brainz & Gainz secured second place and sent Make Trivia Great Again home

Thank The AC Gods

Lord almighty it's hot outside. My farts literally ignite as soon as I let them loose. We must have done something to anger the gods, clearly we have done something wrong and need to atone for our sins. The only logical solution that I can think of is more Quizzing! Let's give a round of applause to the AC at Sactown, and how even with the door open it is still comfortable in there. Once the sun goes down it is even nicer, they totally did not skimp on that sweet sweet AC goodness.

Welcome back to another wrap-up of pub quiz at Cortland’s Garage. I’m Brett, once again filling in while your trusty Lior explores the world. We had a full house last night and a lot to contend with, including a massive retirement party in the back room and a crosstown game (which I’m told involves sports of some kind). Neither event could compete with you mighty quizzers and my hearty playlist full of Ronnie James Dio. Speaking of hearty, last night was my first chance at sampling the food at Cortland’s and holy crap is it amazing! I’ve been missing out during past quizzes… Anyway,

This Wednesday night was one like many others. Lots of beautiful smiling faces, some new, some old, some 2nd timers. Trumpin’ Uglies were our 2nd timers and they decided to take the gold this week from our usual Square Pegs.

Chris

A quiet night for teams at TBP, probably due to the weather in Houston being wetter than an otter's pocket. Boy, did it rain Tuesday morning! But we're used to that here in good old H-town, and the stalwarts of Quizzdom came out to duel over what turned out to be an extremely difficult quiz. Some fared better than others, with a well placed Joker proving to be the difference maker in a tight round 8. The swag this week was a thing of beauty: from headphones to wireless fellas, magnetic chalkboards, t-shirts.... it's worth it for the free stuff alone! So come for the burger, come for the beer, stay for the quiz, and have a damn good time! See y'all next week,

We're Gonna Need More Condoms
Jennabird

Fun Fact: The winner of the gold medal for men’s trampoline at the 2012 Olympic games was Dong Dong. A Dong so nice they named him twice! Because who doesn’t love seeing a Dong bounce around, doing flips and stuff? (Sorry, yes, here at GWD we love 6-year-old humor.) What I mean is, 42 condoms won’t be enough for the Trampoline athletes. They just bounce around from partner to partner… And you know every other athlete wants to hook up with a Trampoliner. (Trampolinist?) Why do it on a mattress, when you can do it on a fricking trampoline?! I bet you didn’t know trampolining was a sport. As Americans, we tend to forget

With four teams geared up and ready to go quizzing at the Bronx Beer hall commenced.  As Fordham University is still on summer break, the hardcore quizzer made their way to Arthur Ave to test their skills and hopefully walk away with some free booze. Round 1 recapped the month of July and revisited the terror that was the guillotine and steamboat Willie.  Oh the horror. 8-Bit Hits made Dust in the Wind by Kansas sound even cooler with the Nintendo remix.  Need that in my playlist.  The Alps are a majestic stretch of mountainous wonder, but seriously where the hell is Montenegro, and who still has an Encyclopedia Britannica?
