It's late and I'm Tired and Netflix has some great new content....
Agusto Cesar Sandino El Segundo

Basically, Last night was awesome, you should've been there.  You totally missed out.  We were partying like it was 1999 with teams like New Years Eve 2.0 Impending Doom, and Rose Mary's Now Middle Aged Child. Way to blow it.  You missed out on not just one great host (ahem) which is of course Me, but you also got Tawn O MahFacking O Shannasey Kennedy as a surprise guest host.  If one Geek Who is Drinking is great, let me tell ya, two Geeks Who are Drinking is even better.    I'd like to tell you more but as I already said in the headline, It's late and I'm tired.  We laughed, we listened, we answered and maybe if we were lucky, we'd laugh

Scuba

Dark and stormy nights do not keep loyal quizzers away from their Wednesday night appointments. We had 9 teams show up through the downpour, and they did not disappoint. Tonight, we had a few of our stalwarts-including Unrprotected Phone Sex, the 2 person squad that's been dominating the past few weeks-this time with a 3rd member. In addition, Snootsquad returned, as well as Armed In Case of Grizzlies-one of our two teams that's headed to Geek Bowl XI to represent the bay area. Our first round was about the nation of Israel, and our teams demonstrated that they are all superior to any diplomatic picks going through senate

EricBenner

I gotta say if there were any "criminals" in the greater Seattle area on this fine Wednesday evening, you might've been able to get away with a numerous amount of criminal activity. Why, you may ask? Well basically the entire Seattle PD was inside the Marco Polo this week. Not due to any suspicious activity mind you, but they all seemed to have the "day off" and decided to drink the night a way. At least they participated in the quiz itself and weren't just being all..."cop-like" ya know what I mean? Other than roughly 1,000 cops making themselves known, a battle between Slickback and the MinutiaMen provided the other excitement of the

  What's up everyone? What a night to be alive. I'm so happy to have hosted possibly the last quiz ever at Novo Brazil tonight since the world will likely be destroyed on Friday after our cheeto-in-chief is sworn in. Tonight's quiz will go down in the annals of time as a tough one with a runaway winner. The Trivial Pursuits were not in pursuit of anything except for first place tonight with a commanding 18 point win. Second place was Little G's and bringing up third was team Keachel which was remarkable considering it was a one man team for much of the night until his wife came in to bring in some much needed brain power.

Winning in spite of Ourselves
@TristanGregson

As I reported last week our dominant team of super friends vowed to split into two very different, very new teams moving forward in the interest of fairness and balancing the power of the quizzers in the room. A gracious maneuver that ultimately led to very little changing here in its first week of execution but I’m skipping ahead. First a shout out to a couple of my regular teams who also believe in the strong appeal of sticking with their team names, AM Squared and Quiz Khalifa love you guys even if the new blood in the room keeps raising the bar at the bar.   A challenging first round set the tone tonight as instead of answering

Hey, Pinthouse! What a relief it is to be back quizzing with you! I know you were in good hands but it is really nice to be back. Let’s get into it. We started tonight by asking you 8 quick and dirty questions on Israel. I was a little worried it might be more challenging that our first rounds usually are. But to my surprise it just separated the wheat from the chaff early on. Some of you were even vocally praising your “Jew Powers!” I should have known you guys were up to the task! It was ridiculously hard to not sing along with every one of the clips in our music round tonight. So much so that I had to remind you multiple times! One of the

Happy day everyone! It finally started thawing out here in Portland, so we’re able to return to everyday life. As much as I enjoyed a little leniency in terms of work, I, for one, couldn’t wait to get out of my house. I get wicked stir-crazy, so it was nice to get back to the office for my regular day job. We had a wicked fun quiz on Tuesday. I want to share with you the shenanigans of this week’s winning team. Round 3 was all about food, and this team wrote my random notes related (ish) to the foods in the question. Here are four of my favorites. Cake (Hell yes! Fat kidz unite!) Soup (as in, “my pants are soup”) Onion

It still makes me laugh whenever a team (or multiple) sees my square head and nerd glasses and then answers Drew Carey on a question that was completely wrong.  Don’t get it twisted though, I used to love The Drew Carey Show and he was pretty damn good on Whose Line is it Anyway, but c’mon people, he’s got nothing to do with Archer!  Besides, why would anyone care how big Drew’s hands are?  They were asking Ms. Truckasauraus herself…the voice of Lana…Lana…LANA….LLLLAAAAANNNNNNNAAAA

Aloha from the land of pints and snifters of fresh and delicious beer! Although not as many teams came to play this week as the last two, we still had an interesting night at Honolulu Beerworks. It seemed like everyone was channeling their team names based on the current news with two teams named after Chelsea Manning after her pardon by President Obama. There seemed to be a certain saltiness in the air tonight and it wasn’t from the Bavarian soft pretzels which are so popular here. It may have been from the looming certainty that President Obama will give way to President Trump in less than 2 days. It may also been because team 20% or Bust won the whole thing, and they

Tonight's Round 4 was brought to you by the Washington Health Insurance Exchange, which reminds you to get insured, like now.

And get it now, because you never know when two rooms full of people in The Other Washington might have other plans. And boy do they have plans. Mostly Platinum ones. Spouse and dependents, the whole nine. And we're paying for them. But I digress. Ahem. Wave Dilson managed to snatch all five bonus questions for a clean sweep of five extra points.

After 2 years and many fantastic nights of quizzing, tonight was my final quiz at Twisted Pine. It’s hard to imagine a week without the amazing quizzers and staff members at Twisted Pine. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my Wednesday nights, or better people to spend them with.  There are so many things I will miss about the Twisted Pine quizzes. I wish I could share them all in this post, but I’ll settle for the top three: 1. The quizzers. You all are some of the coolest, funniest, smartest, and most wonderful people that I have met.

At Least Logan's Has Power...
Addison

Well, the weather turned sour again, but that won’t stop our fun here at Logan’s Roadhouse. We’re just a few weeks away from the big game. Did you know they trademarked the name? It’s pretty much culturally ubiquitous at this point. Just let it go guys. You came up with the stupidest, most generic sports title name possible and yet you defend it like a starving dog hoarding a steak. As for the greatest quiz on earth, round 5 was almost too easy. The teams also liked round 7. Round 2 was a bit harder and round 1 may as well have been a diamond – it was hard. Round 3 also was a bit of a speedbump for the teams. Also, I’m a bit shocked how many people

Tonight’s quiz was brought to you by the letter T for Tyler and by viewers like you. Yes, we had a very special quiz tonight; Quiz Master in training, Tyler, joined us and did a pretty bang up job, for his first time hosting ever. Guys, I’m serious, this dude won’t sing karaoke with me, so for him to grab the mike (which, tonight, we learned the proper technique was what again?) was awesome! I said it a zillion times and I truly mean it, this job isn’t quite as easy as it looks. Just like your job, as quizzers, isn’t quite as easy without the answer sheet right in front of you- as Kristin, your regular scorekeeper, and I found out when we tried to play a few rounds

A packed house where no one knows anything about colonial America
Christian

For weeks I've been preaching. Bring more teams to Capital Brewery, we'll up the prizes. Even last week, when an ice storm scared our regulars away, the same refrain remained -- the bigger the turnout the better the prize.   The theorem was proved tonight. 11 teams came out to Capital Brewery, and our barley-stained overlords responded by stepping up their prizes. Winner took home a couple cases of great beers, an Oktoberfest mug, and a full week's worth of free pours at the bar. Second place? That turned out to be 16 more quality beers and a snifter with which to fancily drink them.    All in all, a solid uptick.   Wednesday's

Back In the Miata Again
ZacHastings

After a two-week break, thanks to Mother Nature, quiz returned to the tin ceilinged hallows of Park Avenue Pub. Unfortunately for our intrepid quizzers, they found themselves staring down the barrel of a not quite so easy quiz. When your first round consists of questions on Israel, and you know Round One is the easiest, it’s going to be a long bumpy ride. Sure enough, low scores all across the board. Unless of course your team name is ZACK’S MIADA HAS TROUBLE IN THE SNOW. Then you know you didn’t have a low score. Despite my best efforts to lose their Round 7, the damn thing showed up in my pile of papers and they found themselves, once again in the
