Busy night at Devil's Daughter! Great to see some new faces and as usual, great to see the regulars. Let's get a few things out of the way:    The bear on my hat represents the California state flag. It's blue to coordinate with the color scheme of the Los Angeles Dodgers. There are no blue bears in California, as far as I know. Just clearing that up because it was the cause of some controversy during the quiz.    But more importantly, Congrats to Chance & Tiffany! They got engaged. It was amazing. Chance slipped me a couple of Sacagawea dollars and when reading the answers I said "What international organization

Canyon Ball Run

So, Jed Bartlet may be a little disappointed by our National Park knowledge, but he still probably would have gotten a good laugh at all the misplaced and misnamed canyons that came up in our time together tonight.   Here are the funny faux-canyon names you missed, in case you missed them: -Canyon Ball Run -Canyon do the Can-Can? -Jim’s Park - Isn't the Grand Canyon just gorges? -Aaron’s Mom’s Canyon National Park (three teams put this down)   What better way to celebrate Aaron’s day of birth than discussing his mom’s canyon!

Ahoy quizlings! Ya know, with all the crazy and terrible things going on in the world, it's nice to just be able to show up some place where the microphones are always sparkly and the beer is always cold for some quiz. It's a bummer that Ellen wasn't feeling up to quizzing tonight but I was more than happy to step in. A big virtual high five to the gent who completely swept the bonus questions (how does getting hammered for free feel?) and big ups to Was Mushmouth on Quaaludes?, Uranus Should Meet My Venus, and Sweep the Leg for taking home those sweet Wyman's gift cards. I'll keep it short and sweet this week but thanks as always for a fun night of quiz

Hey quizzers and Sek'end Sun of a guns! Last night we had a hoppin' quiz with 7 large teams, some of which I recognized from days covering at another gig in the Bronx. (Congratulations on graduating!)Per the usual, John scooped up the majority of the bonus beers by knowing about insecticide, Ticket to Ride and I wanna say, Homicide, cause it sounds better, but I think they got the question about the Zodiac Killer wrong.Looking over the old answer sheets, I missed two gems from Midwest Three and The Waddle Dee who put "cats" as a delicacy in San Fran, and the color of the Golden Gate Bridge as International "Man of Mystery".

The San Francisco Treat
Paddycake

You know I have often wondered why Rice-A-Roni was said to be the treat of the gayest city in the country. I mean, Rice Pilaf is not exactly something I immediately attribute to San Francisco. If anything, rice dishes are known to be a southern thing. So, I decided to check out Rice-A-Roni to find out what the deal was.   As it turns out, the only reason it is considered the San Francisco treat is because the company is there. Rice-A-Roni was actually invented in 1958 when Vince DeDomenico (the son of the founder of the Gragnano Products Inc, which later became the Golden Grain Macaroni Company) when he added dried chicken soup mix to rice and macaroni. This was

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!

Nerd Adventures, Part One
Jakers

Over the past weekend, I had a rare combination of fun events coincide that once again revealed to me that I am a nerd, and at least middle of the road or further down that line that your average joe. This is a fact that I think I take pride in. It's hard to say for sure - I don't know the landscape of my feelings as well as I like. But I enjoy being who I am, so it stands to reason that being nerdy suits me.   This Saturday was dominated by board games. I spend almost the entire day over at a friend's house, (or rather, his parents' house) playing some board games that I had never played before, and some that I had. If you've never played Puerto Rico, I'd recommend it.

As fits his Buffalo heritage, he enjoys chicken wings and beer, and supports the Bills as much as anyone can. An avid gamer, Jakers often ganks you out of the jungle when you have low health and ults all over your face.

He fears the strange lands outside Rochester.

I was a bit out of it during the quiz last night, having consumed a prodigious amount of alcohol over the course of the weekend. The quiz ran along just fine as usual but I was having a tough time keeping my thoughts in any sort of coherent order. So, I thought it might be fun for ya’ll to peek inside my noggin and see what was going on in there throughout the quiz.   -Hammerstein is an abomination created by trying to reanimate MC Hammer.   -How the hell are “ugly laws” enforced?   -Wait, is MC Hammer dead or just his career?

Quizmaster Mike

What is it about giant-sized Jenga that makes otherwise reasonable adults into a bunch of raving lunatics. Every time I’m hosting quiz, someone decides to play Jenga. Now, I’m not roping it in with the giant-sized Connect-Four that is also at the bar. That shit is awesome. It’s a game that requires tact and cunning, pitted head-to-head against an opponent. Jenga, on the other hand, requires…. balance? The ability to feel which blocks move easily and which ones are firmly in place? Every time, it ends the same way. The tower falls. I don’t see why everyone has to make a huge deal about it every time. It’s literally completely

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.

Tie Game - Bonus Edition!
Cheems

You have to love when the quiz comes down to the wire, I know I do. Last night was another close game where only four points separated the top three teams. But before we get to that, it's time for an important lesson: the difference between cities and towns.   cit·y ˈsidē/ noun a large town. "one of Italy's most beautiful cities"   coun·try ˈkəntrē/ noun a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory.

Making New Friends Is The Best!

They had knocked on the door several times and no response was given. So they peeked into the window of the old Triumverate townhouse. The hike was long. The fields by the house were wide with the figures of scarecrows peppered throughout the crops with those wonderully dull eyes that seem to follow your every move. Ducking in and out of the cornfields the boys made their way to the door of the Triumverate Townhouse. Knocking on the door provided no results. Peeking in through the window they could see the house was decorated by two old women who loved to put knitted doilys under ceramic dolls of the Penguinicity variety. The room was lit by a rerun of the old TV show "My Drinking

Getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, nothing really changed.

I still play video games, I play with more expensive toys now a days, but I still play. Between delivering knowledge in the Pub Quiz or delivering jokes on the bar stage, the most important thing is to play.

Boardgame-pocalypse @ BEAU JO'S!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

I discovered that apparently not many people are that into board games these days, which is a damn shame. You should all be playing more of ‘em… and I don’t mean the old-school classics like Monopoly or Candyland…. No, there’s are a whole slew of newer games that are pretty damn awesome, like Ticket To Ride, or Pandemic. One of my favorites is the Game of Thrones Board Game (of Thrones). It will make you hate your friends, which is good because you have a kingdom to run and ddon’t have time for the likes of those who would oppose your rule.   Things we learned this week: - Madonna

Board Games by the Numbers
Extra Terresticle

I’m guessing there’s a good chance most of you grew up playing board games when you were kids. Maybe some of you still play board games as adults. Either way, we dropped a round on board games on you last night which seemed to trip up more than a few teams. A few of the questions were fairly straightforward, while the others were a little tricky. Let’s look back at that round and see how logic could have been used to get all eight points. First off, the answers to the round used all the base ten digits, 0-9, exactly once. Since there were eight questions, this meant either six questions would have a single digit as an answer and two questions would be two digits

Painful, burning regret and Dr. Pepper 10
Thom Cich

A lot of times on these recaps it's fun to talk about one of the crazy themes we had in one of our rounds, but tonight, my inspiration is more specific.  It comes from our Random Knowledge round, where we asked about a pop (yes, pop, not soda) that used the slogan "it's not for women."  We're talking, of course, about the most delicious, and possibly sexist beverage in the world: Dr. Pepper 10.   If you don't recall this ad campaign, feel free to take a quick peek right here.  A delicious, low-calorie soft drink marketed to men as if it were as manly as drinking moonshine made by bears
