THIS. IS. THE DENNNNNNNN

Super Bowl? Psht.  Final Four? Psht.  What is this week folks? Yes, it’s the greatest spectacle of sports entertainment, it’s WRESTLEMANIA!!!  The world focuses its eyes on Orlando, FL on Sunday for the event of all events.  Will Roman Reigns kick Undertaker out of his yard?  Will Chris Jericho reign supreme as the top Canadian in WWE?  Will Alexis Bliss give me a hard-on (definitely yes!)?  Will Goldberg show that old men can still do shit and beat Brock Lesnar again?  The questions are ENDLESS!! I’ve been watching Wrestlemania since I was a mere teenager – the Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Macho Man Savage bout at WW2 is

Texas-transplant and glad to be here...Pennsylvania and the midwest both suck, so don't move there. Huge theatre fan, so expect me to look down my nose at you during Broadway-music rounds, and I kinda like sports too, especially the rules. Be nice to me, and I'll typically find a way to get alcohol to you.

Son of Sam and I Am Sam are Different
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started the evening with a round of definitions. And by that I mean I read you two definitions of the same word. One of them was a normal context, and the other was in a gambling context. I can tell which ones of you have spent maybe a little too much time in Vegas.Our music round was Pentatonix covers of mostly-Top-40 songs. You just had to name the original song and artist. Pentatonix is talented, but I still didn't want to listen to all of these covers.In our special format round, I gave you three clues about a US state and you had to name the state. The clues were a signature food, a national park, and a work of literature that

Confession: I find a capella music torturous

One of our rounds tonight gave quizzers a name of a signature food, a national park and a work of literature and they had to name the U.S. state that they are all in. Utah’s prompt was, “Funeral potatoes, Bryce Canyon, The Monkey Wrench Gang.”   Seriously, what are funeral potatoes?   Thanks to the Internet we can find plenty of recipes to make them here on the east coast. But more importantly, the dish is so popular it has a Wikipedia

Sheetz is not now, nor has ever been a brewery.
Christian

A multiple-point question on breweries was basically the perfect thing for a Wisconsin-based crowd, let alone one headquartered in one of the area's most storied beer makers. And yet, despite our crowd's collective familiarity with Badger State brews, most teams forgot about the abandoned paint factory-turned brewery 20 miles south in Monroe. I won't give the name away for any Hawaiians who may be creeping, but let's just say if you've seen a Canadian episode of Intervention, you're familiar with their spirits.   Wisconsin breweries that are absolutely NOT the oldest in the country include:   Sprecher (est. ~1980) Milwaukee

Does Someone Sell Beer Here?
Hannah

“Does someone sell beer here?” is a strange thing to hear at a place that literally has nothing but beer. It is a stranger thing to hear while sitting at a bar where you can't miss the taps lining the wall. Yes, awkward stranger, someone sells beer here. Not me, but someone.   I was super confused by team Huh?! this week on a question about satyrs, which are half-goats from Greek mythology. His answer was Tom Brady = GOAT. Okay...what? I definitely felt like I was missing something. Apparently, GOAT stands for Greatest Of All Time in football. An informal poll of everyone at the bar showed that I am dumb and this is obvious. Then again, everyone at

Beer rep nights are the best nights, and it was no exception when we had 10 Barrel in the house during quiz. One of you lucky bastards is going to win a sick snowboard, bro! Maybe I convinced them to give me a pint glass. I love pint glasses. I have quite a few Geeks Who Drink pint glasses from the days before I mastered the quiz and used to be just a novice quizzling myself, spending every Tuesday night at The Blind Donkey in Long Beach California. My team Princess Rainbow hardly ever won, coming in a consistent third or fourth out of 20+ teams, but I was queen of the bonus question prize, getting at least one every night and on several instances being told I could not answer any more bonus

Spring done sprung are we are gripped with madness. Or not. If you're reading this you probably already know the exciting news, but I'll let you read it here too. For the month of April we're going to have a month-long, cumulative quiz battle. This is some serious business with some serious cash prizes. Of course, each quiz is special and precious and serious, but this is extra serious. We'll have a leader board - damn, you're probably saying, that sounds legit - so you'll need to stick with one name. I know how hard that may be for some of you, but hey, remember the pot of dough at the end of the rainbow. Speaking of pot, apparently a potential team was derailed by dabs and video games or

Congratulations to Operation Just Cuz for having such a hilarious name while still making fun of me. And also for telling the truth that they had 7 players and could’t take home the cash. Therefore, congrats to Killer B’s for taking first place with a still commendable score. And to Beauty and the Beasts for taking a significant break from us and coming back for a win. Well, we made it through March! Each year it feels like it’s not going to happen and then each year we get through it just the same.

College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

Seven Years in Tragedy
Quizmaster Pio

It's true.  The 4th Tuesday of March 2010 was when I started this strange strange journey.  I started as a scorekeeper at the Ballard Loft then for a man I'm still friends with.  He wears good hats.  Occasionally we pretend it is after the apocalypse (well, after a different one at least).  Sometimes we are 40,000 years into the future.  Anyway, I took over that August and it has been one dark train ride of the soul since then.  Multiple scorekeepers who leave to have a baby named Annika, approximately 400 blogs, 8,000 pictures, and many versions of an advanced spreadsheet. What have I learned?  I have learned I'm the best.  Unlike any others

Let's talk about me, finally. Sean McNeil once said, "I don't know how you can be so arrogant yet hate yourself so much." Thanks, Sean. To answer the question you did not actually ask, I do not know how I pull it off but I do and it works. That is, if you consider mind-boggling neurosis and crippling depression "working" but let us just go with it. I live in Seattle yet I am originally from New Jersey. That means I am a bastard. Do not say "GTL" around me, I will cut you. I may cut you anyway, since I have issues. I got introduced to this whole pub quiz world when I went to a quiz at my current venue with two friends and a sociopathic girl without a soul. After the soulless girl left my life I noticed that Geeks Who Drink was hiring in Seattle and I thought, "Oh my, this seems like a great place to feed my ravenous narcissim as well as fill the hole left by the soulless girl with lots of meaningless sex, perhaps finding some girl and trick her into loving me." Well, it did not quite work out like that, but I am still trying. In the mean time, I really enjoy having everyone listen to everything I say and deconstructing them verbally when their actions do not please me. Or verbally deconstructing them because I am bored. Also drinking lots of whiskey. I feel like my father.

Guy Clark
DungeonMasterOfQuizmasters

This last week, I’ve been reading the biography of Guy Clark, Without Getting Killed Or Caught.  The title is taken from perhaps his most famous song, L.A. Freeway.   It would be hard to sum up how much Guy Clark’s music meant to me.  I first heard Jack of All Trades on a weekend in my adoptive parents’ apartment, and

Sean McNeil (Shamu) was the fourth killer whale ever captured and was the third orca ever displayed in a public exhibit. He was the first orca to survive more than 13 months in captivity and was the star of a very popular killer whale show at SeaWorld San Diego in the mid - late 1960s. After his death in 1971, the name Shamu continued to be used in SeaWorld "Shamu" orca shows for different killer whales in different SeaWorld parks. Little is known about Sean McNeil’s reincarnation as an audio visual tech nerd and publisher, but it has been proven that he was, in fact, a killer whale.

You Can't Always Get What You Want But You Can Netflix Archer
Quizmistress Amanda

  Just about three years ago now I went out for drinks with a guy I met online. We had a lovely time drinking beer and cider at an Irish pub. We both had our kids at home so we planned to just grab a drink and chat for a while. Three-ish hours later we were finally leaving the bar. I was so charmed. Like, so charmed. In fact, I invited him over the following weekend to have lunch and watch tv (legit Netflix and chill). Anyway, we had a delicious lunch of grilled cheese sandwiches and apples. After that, we snuggled up on the couch to watch tv. I had picked Archer because I fucking love that show and I knew he’d enjoy it too. So we’re

The Night My True Cinephilia Came Out
Quizmaster Soss

Just wanna take a quick moment to speak to the cinema masterpieces that are the three American Doll movies Julia Roberts helped get made.  Not only do they introduce highly innovative storytelling techniques, and have beautiful artwork and animation, but they also have something all film lovers hope for in a movie: slapstick physical comedy.  American Dolls 1 serves as a great introduction to the characters and the world they live in, while inviting the viewer to question both reality and possibility.  American Dolls 2: Picking Up The Pieces is a masterful character study into the mind of a clinically depressed toy who is a burden and danger to everyone who

…Geeks Who Drink remembers…  Hello, my quizzers of Brix @ Sunset Beach!  What a night of quiz!  I had fun insulting y’all; I hope you had as much fun being subjected to my insults!  Tonight, after quiz, I decided to get a jump on this whole blogging thing so I could maybe get it finished and posted by tomorrow; that’d be somethin’, huh?  So, to that end, I went down a few blocks from Brix to the Harbor House, this all-night diner that has been here for decades (I’m assuming).  My laptop’s battery was running dangerously low and I therefore had to seek out a table with an outlet nearby.  I found one in a section

AdamMcJunkin

I'm going to be real honest with all of you. This was probably one of the my favorite quiz's we've had. A lot of points and all solid rounds! It had to come to an end at some point though, and after an excellent showing in round eight, The Girls Who Drink and Know Things took home the top prize, followed by Abby's not here! Now let's talk about that quiz!Round one started us with some recent events! Unfortunately teams have apparently not been paying attention, as it didn't go especially well.Some teams may have thought round two was a little rough, and may have had some flashbacks to a round from last week.
