Global Warming My A**
Sean "Not Jay-Z" Carter

One of the benefits of living in Colorado as compared to Minnesota was supposed to be the milder winters.  So what’s up with these single-digit lows and below-zero windchills?  What happened to 300 days of sun and seasonal average temps in the 40’s?  I’m writing my congressman a sternly worded letter about this nonsense and I encourage you all to do the same. As cold as it was last night, I can understand if you decided to stay home under a blanket in front of the fire, but in doing so you missed a great quiz!  We had a rep from New Belgium Brewing on hand to do our bonus beer questions, which featured their wonderful beers and some sweet goblets

Baby, It's Cold Outside
Josh

Man, I don’t know what it is this year, maybe it’s the fact that our summer in Denver pretty much ran in to mid-November, maybe it’s the decided lack of snow so far this winter, or maybe it’s me just getting old but MAN it was cold out last night.  So cold in fact, that the winter weather wreaked havoc on at least one of my automobiles.  Frozen fuel lines and dead batteries are never pleasant to deal with but even more so when you are dealing with them on dead on the side road.  So as much as dealing with that sucked… all my problems melted away when I showed up to Jagged Mountain last night.  With 19 teams in the house it proved to be another

We Danced the Night Away
Charlotte

We Danced What a fun night! We had great teams, and great team names, some new and some familiar. One new team The Elks started as The Drinkers, changed their name, and kept up a continuous commentary on the proceedings. Stir-Fried Lawn Ornaments played for the first time, too, and they were clearly having a good time and keeping up with our regulars.   Blink About It, The Emergency Exits, The Cohen's and Here for the Beer also played for the first time and we expect to see a couple

<50 degrees in Texas = <0 degrees in Colorado
QMC

Hello Iron Bear!   Jesus tap-dancing Christ, it’s fucking cold outside. I’m laughing at myself here, because I realized that I’ve complained about it being cold literally every year for the last five years. Each time, I mention that I live in central Texas, goddammit, and I don’t really own any cold-weather clothes. I have a few hoodies, and one or two pairs of wool socks, but other than that, my wardrobe is mostly t-shirts, jeans, and Dickies shorts. So what do I do about it? Do I go out and find gloves for my poor, frozen fingers, or a warm coat? Nope! I just put on layer after layer until I look even more like a terrifying

Lets Get Down To Business... To Defeat The Huns
Taylor's Witty Nickname

Some of you quizzers who have been with Elbow Room for a long time know that I really don’t care for Disney movies. With the exception of Hamilton I would much rather characters just say what they need to say instead of singing it. There are a few exceptions to this rule though and last night you found one of them. Mulan is a good movie and I love the “I’ll make a man out of you"song. In fact, one of the first times I bonded with my brother in law was when we realized that we both knew all of the lyrics and sang them loudly. It was a sight to behold, one grown man and one teen singing

Wait, you're not Jeff!
Discount Doug Mart

It was my first week taking over the quiz at New Heights, but this blog isn’t going to be too much about me. It’s going to be about Jeff. Jeff was your faithful host for almost 2 years, so I was/am a little bit nervous taking over for him. I was constantly asking “did Jeff do it this way?” or “WWJD (what would Jeff do)?” There’s no way I can live up to the wonderful world of quiz that Jeff offered each week, but I’m sure gonna try! It was the first snowy day of the season, and just like the weather outside Pretty Freakin Hard

Donny Osmond Dance Break
MaxGlenn

Remember those days a few months back when life was simpler? The Cavs had just won the NBA championships; the Cleveland Indians were beginning their hot streak; the weather was exceptional; and the RNC hadn’t quite arrived yet? Time was just swell back then. Then Cleveland remembered, as it always does, that Cleveland is cold. And we were in for a chilly night at The Side Quest. Good thing we all buy into the illusion alcohol keeps us warm!

When the Chance of Snow ATTACKS!!
Jam Sammich

I feel like the now keeping people afraid and home last night was like that massive windstorm that was threatened earlier this year.   A dusting that's mostly rained away before 9am. We will rebuild.   We had a fun night once again over at Celtic Club as three teams braved the fierce winter storm to join us for competition, free drink chances, and some sweet prizes. We discussed rounds ranging from everyone's favorite topic: Donny Osmond, to a video round highlighting movies and shows that were the kick off to some of Hollywood's bigger romances. As always, the night would be amiss without our Random Knowledge round to cap the

Hicks out for Harambe
Jake

Hey Campers! Another rowdy good time last night, a total of 12 teams and a bunch of late comers that got to witness the grand spectacle that is our quiz. Thank Cthulhu for microphones. Shit was off the chain. I met a surly gentlemen who told me he does standup in "peoples' garages". And I think someone actually whipped their dick out for Harambe. Is that still a thing? Memes fade in and out so fast these days. On to the rundown! Round one was our current events, mostly politics edition. Round two, our first audio round, was artists and/or titles that mention the 12 days of Christmas. Round three was our classic round: Real or Shit? This time a holiday

A Sub for All Seasons
WhitneyWhitworth

Hello new friends! As you know, Johanna was out last night, and I got the privilege to step in as your sub. Frist of all, thank you guys for braving the “blizzard” and coming out to play with us. Second, I can honestly say, last night’s quiz was kind of a trip, thanks to young Joshua and his band of Anthonys. Sincerely, I want to thank you for providing the entertainment last night. Listen, I know some Quizmasters/mistresses may not really enjoy that one guy who doesn’t get cut off by his friends, but I think we had a pretty good time. You were funny, had an accent, and probably don’t even remember that we had a quiz last night. I like you, you’re all right.   Outside

Be Gentle, It's My First Time
Casey

What a whirlwind of a night, y’all! So tonight was my final night of training and my first solo run, chaperoned by the awesome Jorge Mata. In case you didn’t already know, he’s a pretty cool guy. Anyway, he was kind enough to let me take over his venue for the night and harass his people, who were overall very charming and excellent quizzers. One of the main reasons I wanted to start working with Geeks Who Drink, aside from the fact that they’re a pretty cool company in general, is because I wanted to meet new people. I can now officially say that I am at my capacity for new people in my life (just kidding!). Seriously though, I was blown away by how many people

Holiday Traditions, Neat Books, and Donny Osmond – Just a Regular Night at Quiz!
Katie

I didn’t think I was doing anything last night – I was supposed to get my snow tires put on my car, but since I am an airhead and forgot the lug nuts for those… my evening was pretty much wide open. So when April asked me if I could sub for her, I was happy to oblige. And ya know what? I had a great time at Dinosaur BBQ with the eight teams that came out to flex their mental muscles! Round 1 got some groans early on when I announced that it was a “Mostly Politics” edition of the usual “Recently in Stuff” Round. Come on guys, you’re sick of politics already? You shouldn’t be. There’s four years of spectating coming up that

Christmas Rap Off in Wales
Sarah Linster

Last night we had quiz at the Public House and it was a fantastic time as usual! I ate the tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich and followed it with a brownie sundae. It was ridiculously tasty. My new favorite! Missy, KP, Spencer and Katrina were there to take care of all our food and beverage needs and they were amazing. What did we learn?  We learned that Tom Cruise is playing the “Mummy” reboot. We also discovered that Christmas is celebrated in interesting ways all though the world. In Wales, people hide under sheets and challenge their neighbors to rhyming insult fights. Pretty funny! Finally we found out that Winnie the Pooh is afraid of Heffalumps trying

Alright.....I just need to know.  GRANTED I am a simple man......perhaps at time too simple.  I am easily confused and there are times you can catch me staring blankly at a wall....I'll give you that.  HOWEVER, Adam....?....wait, I get ahead of myself. Good showing tonight.  3 new teams that wandered in off the cold ass street.  Little did they know at the time when they ordered their beers, they were into for a laughed filled screaming good times.  LOVED the team names tonight.  People mostly....I say mostly....named their teams after themselves and how they perceive themselves to the world.  So, of course, I had to ask the Crack Whores

Brass Monkey
dammit kevin

No. That has absolutely nothing to do with tonight’s quiz. But, since it does seem cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey, I started looking up similar phrases on the internet so that I can stop using the same one or two idioms over and over again.  Here’s a list to expand your repertoire: Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey (and it’s actually not what you think – a brass monkey is a triangle that was used on ships with cannons to stack cannon balls - if it got cold enough, they would start falling off and hence the phrase) As cold as a witch’s tit in a brass bra (are brass bras a thing? and why a witch?)

The Backstreet Boys Were Garbage, But Still Better Than 98 Degrees
Taylor&Elijah

McNally's! We here at Team Siron missed the hell out of you all last week, but we knew you were in the more than capable hands of Megan. We came back to you this week with another quiz, and from the feeling in the air we were all knowing that winning would be the only thing that could keep you warm heading into the treacherous half-inch snowstorm. But enough of all the pleasantries. I promised to get into why I was so disappointed with you all about confusing N*Sync with The Backstreet Boys, and damnit I'm a man of my word. So here we go, the reasons you all were so wrong.
