You Wanna Be Where You Can See, Our Troubles Are All The Same!
The Babe With The Power

Picture it. Wall-to-wall hardwood, low light, and high stools. A bartender is obsessively wiping an already shiny bar and then takes up a glass to obsessively wipe wipe wipe 'round the glass with the same towel. So goes the life of the tv or movie bartender AND you know exactly what they're there for. Someone is going to belly up to the bar and either needle them for info or they're going to get right pissed and spill their guts about how terrible life is going. Exposition!Remember Isaac from "The Love Boat," though? I liked him and I loved watching that show as a kid probably about the same time as I watched a lot of "Fantasy Island" and "Gilligan's Island." You know, looking

Once upon a time in 2009 I went in search of something fun to do to get me and my husband out of the house. The internet coughed up Geeks Who Drink and we were hooked. Then first Gallifreak got lured into hosting and after nearly 5 years I've been cajoled and bamboozled into hosting, too. You can find me on the mic at Southtown 101 on Mondays at 7PM and hanging out with the Gallifreak while he hosts at Quarry Hofbrau, Halcyon Southtown, and Sherlock's Pub & Grill!

DNC Texting Scandal
Russel

With all of this talk about the DNC's email scandal, I feel like the intercepted text messages from DNC members and prominent democrats are getting seriously overlooked. Obviously, I can't share all of them, so here's just a few.   http://i.imgur.com/76IRdsK.png http://i.imgur.com/F9tSBwf.png http://i.imgur.com/SCBIQK4.png http://i.imgur.com/pblHD60.png Man, the DNC sound like a bad high

What Are YOU Running....
"Other" Eric

     What are you running for? Do you have a platform of hate and douche-baggery? A platform of violence and fear? What about us?  What are we running from? Political monsters that no matter who wins, we will see more and more money vanish from our income checks?  Are we running from clowns that hide in the gutters? Are we running from clowns who stand in front of podiums and lie to our faces?      Well kids, the nice thing about me, I don't give two shits about what you're running on or from! I just come out and let you take your mind off this shit for a couple hours. With my fabulous voice and the great food and drinks at The Daily Grind,

Or, sorry you're all upside down again. :(   We had a fun and boisterous crowd at Blackbird last night! I especially enjoyed that we had 2 larger teams who decided to split up into 4 smaller teams - but sat at the same table. Now here’s the best part - since you were all so close to me it was obvious that none of you were helping each other. ESPECIALLY since everyone was so protective of their answers. Covering them up with another paper, just like we did in school. I love a good friendly competition and I love competing amongst friends.

Wow! A great turnout Monday night! Several new teams and new players and training a new GWD Quizmaster. Monday night was a good night.   Once again, First Losers came in 1st Place. It helped their score that they got a perfect 16 points in Round 3. I know they would have Jokered that round...if they hasn't done so earlier in Round 2. DJ Duggie Fresh & the Corpse of GR came in 2nd Place.   Once again, another tie and another tie-breaker challenge to determine who gets the extra point for 3rd place.

Kevin’s unofficial theme of the week: Drake came up a few times. I played Drake a few times. I Draked a bit. Drake all around! Weekly Rant: I bought my phone a year ago now. It’s a refurbished iPhone 6 so it had a few kinks but none too detrimental. A couple of months ago, my phone got very needy and particular. It no longer wanted to charge on a normal charger. It needed an upright charger; a freaking throne. A week ago, it decided it was done with that and wanted to take an eternal nap. So I needed to go to the Genius Bar (btw when I went to type Genius, I

Hey! Why are you looking over here? Do you want to know things about me? Like, how I have lived in New England my entire life? How I'm fluent in 5 languages if you count sarcasm and bullshit? How I am a foodie and beer snob? Is that what you want to know? No? You want more? How about how I work at a charter public high school? Is that good enough? My favorite animals are penguins and ducks, with a particular affinity to all things llamas. That's all I'm telling you! Consider yourself lucky!

Round 2 featured an audio round where the first letters of the first seven songs titles spelled out the title of song 8. Teams did well on this round! Round 3 featured a bonus double point round with a sooner or later round. For this round teams had to name the state based on the cities given. 4 teams handed in their answer sheets early for double points!

A night of sorrow and celebration
TJMcDonald

This blog will start off on a sorrow note. A couple of the regulars will be leaving the area and attended their last GWD quiz in Iowa City. They were here my first week when I was a clueless Quizmaster with no self-esteem. They watched me grow the past two years into an extraordinary quizmaster who still has no self-esteem. Hey, no one ever said personal growth was a quick journey. So, best of luck to the unicorns love bukakke 5 and their final pub quiz. They saved their best for last winning two bonus pints as well as grabbing first place. This was a special week to win first place as they received not only a $30 gift certificate to BackPocket, but a free growler as well. Congratulations

Monday Monday... Can't Trust That Day
Paddycake

It was definitely a Monday. Work was horrid... which made all of your smiling faces all the more uplifting. Then I got home and watched Roadies, and discovered a new band. So, the day ended much better than it began.   But enough about Monday... I just got back from a 3-day weekend trip to Utopia, Texas. We went tubing on the Frio River with a group of our friends. It was a fabulous weekend. We stayed in a house out in the middle of the nowhere. We got to watch deer come into the yard to eat, listen to the enormous silence at night, and play lots of board games and cook lots of good food.   It wasn't without some peril though. A wrong turn

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Close and Extremely Loud
Ben

Hello people! Of course I mean that as in The Pub & The People. ... I won't do that again, I'm sorry. The Monday night quiz was another good one, despite my fumbling through a few of the more awkwardly formatted rounds while I attempted to train Austin, who, starting on August 2nd, will be hosting his own quizzes at Salty Dog Tavern in Dupont. No team names referencing Pokemon or Trumpemon, which was a surprise, and also not a surprise, was the fact that those bastards from Age of Consent won YET AGAIN. When will it end? At least it was an EXTREMELY close game. While Age of Consent won with 126 points,

And as of tonight, I have hosted the holy trinity of Denver pub quiz: The Glenn, Sloan’s Bar and Grill, and Teller’s Tap. They all have that pub feel but with their own distinct flavors. It was a fun time last night. I dropped some Trumpian questions and you did tremendous. The teams I hosted last night were the greatest. It was yuuuuge. And there were 1,000s of teams there last night. It got quite hectic. Had some people try to cheat and put the kybosh on that right quick. I’ve got eyes everywhere, ladies and gentlemen. So don’t even try. And you are cheating in order to win a $10 gift certificate. That’s like tripping a 5 year old to get to the ice cream truck

Welcome one and all! It's been a whole week, and I am beat. This blog is gonna be short and sweet. Some Quizzness! We started off the night with a Recently in Stuff Round 1. Solid current events, and of course, we kept it Trump-Free. Moving right along, our first audio round was a fun one. The first letter of the titles for numbers 1-7 spelled out the song title for number 8. Half of our teams Jokered on round 2, and the other half on round 3, which was Sooner or Later! This round 3 was all about the US, by naming increasingly obvious cities, teams had to guess the state. The catch was, if they only needed 3 clues, they got double points, but 2 extra clues would cost them that

A Brief Lesson on Alcohol Proof
Extra Terresticle

At last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Night Shift Brewing, we had a question on the proof of a bottle of gin that’s 40% alcohol by volume. The question had me wondering just where did the term proof come from and so I looked it up. Allow me to share with you all my new knowledge. The term proof comes to us from England where in the 1500s spirits were taxed according to their alcohol content. And to measure the alcohol content back then, there was a gunpowder pellet test. If gunpowder had been soaked in a spirit that was at least 57.15% ABV, then when lit on fire it would burn. Conversely, a spirit with an alcohol content below that value would prevent the gunpowder

How Contagious is Foot Syphilis?

I’m just curious because this team is really starting to get on a roll. This team (in multiple forms) has finished 4th, 2nd, 2nd, 1st and now 1st again in the last three weeks at my various quizzes. That’s a level of quiz superiority that is rarely seen outside of teams like The Solid Gold Answers and That’s What She Said. And if you don’t know who those two team are, they are probably the two strongest quiz teams in all of Austin (and maybe Texas!). They pulled away from the pack early thanks to a perfect effort in our Sooner or Later
