Date Night Fight!
PeteStegemeyer

Hey everybody!  Thanks for checking out our quiz last night, which featured four teams that were battling for date night supremacy!  We had a super close match throughout, with the lead usually never more than a point out of grasp, but in the end, I quizzed too soon took home the grand prize!Our champion may have taken home a bar tab, but we ALL took home knowledge.  Here are a few of my favorite facts from last night:Zsa Zsa Gabor is somehow still alive.  I really thought she died in the 90s.Kirk Douglas too.  He's looking better than Michael right now.Apparently, England had 3 separate

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Stranger in a Strange Place
Josh Taylor

It’s always weird subbing. It’s like walking into hostile territory…well not hostile, but you know what I mean. Thanks to the staff at Parry’s Pizza for helping me set up and giving me some great advice for how their crowd reacts during quizzes. Also, if you haven’t been to Parrys, I’m gonna put them over because I had the best pizza I’ve had in quite a long time and their beer selection was pretty amazing and that’s saying a lot from someone who prides themselves in finding good craft beer. I happened to run into an old rivaling team from back when I was a frequent player

Patrick

Hey people! Patrick here with our sixth post-quiz report from last night's quiz at Tioga Sequoia Beer Garden in beautiful downtown Fresno! Thanks as usual to our great hosts and bartenders, Kira Julia Christy and Matt! Also wanted to give a shoutout to the taco truck on premises, Locauoria/Flat Bottom Grills, with it's chefs Chris Jorgensen and Josh Stout. They have some really good looking food coming out of that truck! The scores were all over the place last night and by the time things were all over everyone was at the top at some point. We had some really hard rounds this time around but as always the more people you have in your team the better chances you'll have to

Hey people.   Thanks for coming out to Town in City.   I'm sorry if my voice sounded a little weird.   I was going through some allergy shit.   Though it's likely that you didn't even notice.   I'm just crazy.   But whatever.   I don't care about allergies or Winnie Cooper.   Actually I used to care plenty about Winnie Cooper.   I just got drunk and didn't remember a show that hasn't been on the air in 22 years.   I'm 28.   Sue me.   (Please

Oh! You Mean Pedophile!
Kent

Looks can be deceiving. It’s true—when most people look at me they just automatically assume that I’m a male model/body builder; but alas, I’m not. And based on the paltry attendance of last night’s quiz I assumed it was gonna be a bit of an unfun game. We had the ever-reliable SockCheese show up—but even their usual numbers were low (hence their slight name change to SockCheese Lite), and one returning couple from last week.   Well as I said, looks can be deceiving. Because last night was one of the best and closest damn head-to-head matches I’ve seen in all my years (actually months) as an amazing (actually shitty) Quiz Master!

What's the Sound of a Single Person Quizzing
gabriel

Tonight at Fado, one of the ladies who is usually in We Know Maurice than You was running a promotional event for a film called How to Be Single.  This got me wondering--if the film were an advice column (I assume it's probably a romantic comedy where the characters ultimately end up not single at all...but what do I know), who would best give this advice?  Would you ask your spinster Auntie or that friend of yours who seems to have a new bedmate every evening with no desire to settle down?  Or would this advice come best from the lonely heart's club--rather than continuing with pleas for help to assuage their loveless existence, could one give them purpose by asking them to

Pendejo; spanish for Idiot and a fun nickname for ex boyfriends
Dee Naps

It was the most competitive the quiz has gotten so far but I navigated with no fear (I do have a constant irrational fear of snakes slithering up to me at any given time, but that's neither here or there) We are at a point where we have begin to establish our regulars and they are all blood hungry or umm free beer thirsty???? We had a plot twist ending when our winners mid game The Baked Alaska's actually came in 4th at the end of the quiz, additionally I've been trying to convince that team to quit their day jobs and be models but they ignore me for some reason ????  I have to give it up to Bar owners Ryan and Krystina they

Assless Chaps and Catholic Guilt
DiscoUke

Hey y'all! Thanks for another awesome night! We started off with Round One, which was a quick trip through the alphabet. Round Two was our audio round, this time it was pretty woo-riffic. Round Three was a 50/50 round on the American and English Civil Wars. Round Four was about cowboys and the East End and assless chaps (which are all of them). Round Five, the Visual Round, was about aged celebrities. Round Six was all about geometry, farmers, and Dan Brown.  Round Seven was our video round on twins.

Go Math!
Sweet Pea

If you haven’t noticed, the last few weeks I’ve picked a topic to rant on out of the nights quiz. Tonight I bring you my thoughts on Geometry. Mathematical thinking and reasoning begins for students long before it is taught through any sort of schooling.  Beginning as infants, humans are attracted to patterns, designs and shapes. Parents reinforce this by often purchasing toys or mobiles with brightly colored shapes, pictures or designs.  Babies are attracted to these items before they are able to reach, grasp or manipulate them in anyway.  Later, toys are manipulated in such a way as to provide further hands on learning to develop these types of skills.  These

Elizabeth

The lottery craze may have faded to the background in light of our Super Bowl victory (Go Broncos!), but the dream of a get-rich-quick scheme lives on in the hearts and minds of many. Although I am not at all going to spend the time to figure out the statistical probability of me actually winning the lottery, I still know it isn’t all that likely. Similarly, the chances of a tie for first place in quiz when 96 points and a joker are involved…not that high. However, in proof that miracles do still happen, we had a first place tie at Parry’s pizza last night! Blue Steel and Geeks Who Win battled to the end and were forced into a sudden

not this angelic face!
Alley Cat

Sometimes when I show up to Burg & Barrel on Wednesday nights, I really never know what I’m going to get. Will there be 30 teams? Will there be parking? Should I go with the Mean Bean or the Ragin’ Cajun? Just so many questions! But the answer is always tots. Tots and having a good fucking time. We had tots. We had fun. And everyone now knows that this quizmaster can be embarrassed. Thanks There’s no “I” in Gangbang. Seriously. No one would imagine that this angelic face could ever say such strong words, especially not in front of a crowd…on a Wednesday night. J But don’t worry, team names like

Let's go fly a kite!
McFly

Yeah… Yeah. We all know that question two was highly suspect. It reads: "What Poppin's-approved shape is like a parallelogram, except that its pairs of equal-length sides are adjacent?" Now. As a geometry teacher (and the chapter over quadrilaterals being my FAVORITE), I can definitely agree with this question, geometrically speaking. The definition of a parallelogram is: a quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel. One specific property of a parallelogram is that the opposite sides are the same length (although not all sides are necessarily the same length). The question reads that the pairs of same-length sides are adjacent, as opposed to being across the shape from

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well.

Biased Against All
Joey "Spider-Man" Hancock

Hello there ladies and gents, guys and dolls, dudes and dames.                 Second night at the place and it had no shortage of laughs! It was not as poppin as last time, but I blame that on the Super Bowl. If you partied correctly it’s gonna take you a few days before you even want to see alcohol again! And drinking may have been the only recourse to having fun the super bowl had to offer. Pretty lame in my opinion. Quiz was not lame though! We had a discussion between two teams as to who was more hood, we discussed how to pronounce the street in California (RoDA-o) or (RoDE-o). We even got a person

Don't Ask, Okay? Just... Don’t Ask.
Gerry-oke

*sigh*  Hello again, quizzers.  Welcome to another week of quiz.  I done did it again.  I mispronounced something.  And, I mean, in R1.  Right out of the gate.  This one was quite special, however, in that I know how to pronounce the word and, in fact, not ten seconds earlier, I had pronounced it correctly (or as widely accepted, at least).  The word in question is the name of the great seventh planet of our solar system, Uranus.  Now, obviously, there are inherent problems (and funnies) with the English pronunciation, “yer-AY-nuss.”  In case that wasn’t clear, the funny lies in that it sounds like “your

Hey there, Pub Quiz Fans!   Some familiar faces along with some new players joined us for our pub quiz last night at Big Dog’s. I do hope that trend continues [side note: is it a trend if something happens twice?]. Anyway, it’s always fun for me to host at Big Dog’s.
