Buchanhee do it! No he Buchan't!
LexSimpson

Man, a whole ‘lot of you knew who James Buchanan was, which is genuinely surprising, since, if he’s remembered at all, it’s typically as the guy usually ranked as one of the top three WORST presidents we’ve ever had, often battling it out with Andrew Johnson, who’s on the other side of Lincoln, who’s generally rated our best. Funny that Lincoln is bookended by two of our worst presidents of all time. Buchanan vs. Johnson for worst president ever is a pretty interesting fight, one I’ll do sometime, as it basically is the President who sat on his hands and allowed the Civil War to happen vs. the guy who fucked up the aftermath of the Civil War. It’s

Pop Tarts Or Twinkies @ BEAU JO'S!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Why not both? I mean, they are each quite the delicious snack treats, not necessarily suitable for breakfast for people of any age. The only time I ever have either is during a road trip, because apparently I hate myself, especially when I’m in a state that isn’t my home. Pro-tip: pop tarts are awesome for camping trips. Campfire pop tarts are friggin’ amazing, and if you haven’t tried, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Twinkies, not so much… ever.   Things we learned this week: - Stedman was never Oprah’s bestie. - If Ice Cube says you can do it, you better believe

I'm a Muppet of a Man
TheHypnotoad

Fun evening subbing in for Stephanie at Craft Pride! You guys were lot's of fun, definitely enjoyed having another Muppets fan in the house, we will always have something to talk about. Round one featured a scavenger hunt that I've never heard of, though I am interested by some of the un-interesting stuff they've had people do. Audio round was all milk and honey, though I wish I could have played Mariah's "Honey" after it came up, guess I'll save it for another time. The writers, man, they're always coming up with new round ideas, and round three's "Anything or Everything" round was a great example, really enjoyed quizzing it. Round four was all about the terrible things America

The Soothing Sound of the Quiz
MelissaSummers

I, for one, am extremely relaxed after a quiz full of soothing nature sounds. Whale calls go really super-well with beer. Sorry about the waterfall and the big lines at the bathrooms ... So there’s this thing call GISHWHES. How cool is this? How have I never heard of this? Especially something invented by Misha Collins -- archangel, cutie-pie, author, TV star. (I’m a big fan.) An international scavenger hunt with silly pranks, kind acts, and general goofiness. I could get behind this. Here’s tonight’s playlist:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd0fBXwDBmo

A lifetime’s experience with socially awkward geekiness has led inevitably to Geeks Who Drink.  The Groveland Tap is my first gig, which is a return home.  Drinkers in my family have been imbibing there since it was The Fairview Palms, and my kids played their first game of pool at BB Dixon’s.

A cubicle slave by day, by night I hang out with amusing drunks either for Geeks Who Drink or driving the PedalPub, a non-motorized party bus.  I also bike, homebrew, play scrabble, read everything, and volunteer for Surly Brewing’s SGAD volunteer corps.  I have two kids (that I know of), a spouse, two cats, and an antisocial cockatiel named Füd.

I ride bikes a lot and enjoy hanging out with people who are a lot smarter than me.

Does Anybody Hate Detectives?
Hopeless Semantic

   So like are all cops not that great until they make detective? Does anybody hate detectives? No bad cop videos seem to be about detectives? Why don't they just make the whole force out of detectives? Detect that! Why am I talking about detectives? I don't know. Sometimes it's a team name. Sometimes it's just something in the quiz. Sometimes it's just because they were playing that Elvis Costello song on the PA. That's right, they were playing it on the Pennsylvania. Which is what I call a PA. This is what happens when I write my blog at 1:38 a.m. It turns out like a lot of my other blogs. I'm sure there is some guy in jail who has love/hate tats on his knuckles and

"Better than everybody." A phrase that I heard repeatedly and honestly uttered at pub quiz last night at the always superlative Pimlico. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: a round for history buffs, motivational songs (quizzers, tell me, which is the song of the summer--"Cheerleader" or "Can't Feel My Face"?), Pop-Tarts or Twinkies (lots of innuendo possibilities there, y'all), schools & fish, shitty knock-offs (so sad I didn't see Mega Bloks on this shit), garlic, VH1 "I Love the XXs" clips, and finally, as always, random knowledge.

Mt. Phuckme: The Tallest Mountain in Africa
OwenBallard

Ladies and gentlemen of Scotty’s Pub, I knew it was going to be a good night from the moment we started. As soon as I picked up the very first answer packet to round 1, I noticed an out-of-this-world wrong answer. Team LAZY ANTS responded to, “What is the tallest mountain in Africa?” with an extraordinary answer of “MT. PHUCKME”. The only other wrong answer that could even come close to absurdity of “MT. PHUCKME” was from team GOLENKUS MAXIMUS who, when asked about the name of the Washington Wizards basketball player came out of the closet in 2013, responded with “Reginald P. Worthington”. Though there were many other stupid, uneducated,

Skye Designs opened with a round 1 joker. A bold choice that proved costly in the end, they finished 5th.While Know Idea was just 10 points away from the 1st place team, they finished 4th, as we had a very solid top 3 teams. Our 2nd and 3rd place finishers both had the same amount of regular-season points, but due to the tie breaker, Probably Gonna Win… didn’t. They finished 3rd, but still only 1 point away from the 1st place team. Pub Quiz is a harsh mistress.Our 2nd place finishers have taken to naming their team after violent acts performed on their missing teammates. Kurt

Guys - Can We Talk About Something Important for a Minute?
Cap'n Brendan

…Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is coming out in four months. FOUR MONTHS! I’ve been waiting more than a decade for a new Star Wars movie, and now I get one. That isn’t helmed by George Lucas. In four months. “But Brendan,” you’re probably saying, “four months is ages away! Why don’t you blog about something more immediately relevant?” Because – because, my friends – today I’ve been hearing way too much about the Republican presidential debate. We’re already debating and dominating airwaves trying to decide what decision we will make in primaries that start in

Bonus Points to Whoever Brings Me the Head of the Next Hitchhiking Robot
Killer B

Maybe my view is skewed by watching Terminator and T-2 in one day (I also saw Genysis but I don't want to talk about it) but I'm pretty happy that hitchhiking robot was killed. It also seems like another example of people being more concerned with robots or lions than human beings. Whatever. This is a blog about Geeks and Drinks and Quizzes and Nights and Fun and Drinks again!!!   Well played jokers tonight...for the most part. There may be nothing more disheartening to me than a promising team who jokers Round 7. Looking at you Mascots. You'll get em next time. But, great patience from our first and second place teams who waited until Round 8 to

I'm Blake Ritchen and I became a Quiz Master for the power. Nowhere else in my life can I tell people not to fuck with me so calmly or without chance of altercation. As a substitute teacher I'm supposed to stay away from words like that, though from the number of elementary students who've told me I look like the guy from The Hangover I'm going to assume they've heard that and worse. The power is intoxicating. I get to choose what music you listen to, what prize to award for the email bonus question (from the prizes given to me to award), and in which inflection I will read each question. I also get to drink for free, meet new people, tell jokes, yada, yada, I'm boring myself.
I have spent more and and more time recently with my new best friend, Netflix. If you dropped your Netflix plan over their failed summer business plans you're nuts. Why don't you just move to western Pakistan because the IRS was a week late on your tax return? Seriously, it's amazing and has made me much happier than any real person in my life ever could. I've prepared for the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead, a life in menial jobs with The Office and Party Down, and there's a movie where nun's get totally naked. Get a friend Netflix for the holidays or a birthday, or just give them your password so you don't have to spend another eight dollars a month.
I teach, I quiz, I master, I bait fish hooks when I visit my grandfather in Minnesota, I read but have recently just been waiting for the movie to come out, and I've lived in Denver my whole life. I also work at a sports bar and basically have the job of changing channels for people, an easy enough job most days but it has made the target of many a crazed sports fan who is unwilling to turn his head at all to watch his game. Still, I love it, and like I said at the start, I like having the power.

We had an answer yeller at the bar tonight...Though she was proud of her fast food answer of Wendy's, the other teams were not impressed!  :)  Everyone was a good sport though. Special kudos to The Filthy Animal who played by himself and almost took second place... Well done dude! Proud to say there were no mispronounced words tonight... of course, there were no French words either. Wish me luck... I have an audition this week for Better Call Saul. See you next week! John

It was an amazing night at The Well tuesday night. We only had three teams participating, but the energy was unlike any other quiz I've hosted as of late, and it was certainly, spoiler alert, the type of quiz I would want to go out on. I announced tonight that I had been cast in an off-Broadway production of Godspell (as Jesus) and that this would be my last quiz for a couple months, if not, in general for the venue, and I was met with applause and cheers. It was honestly not something I was expecting, and it meant a lot. I thank you all, anyone who has come to a quiz and had fun with me, thank you.

Tonight's blog written by the wonderful Meggan....   Tonight we had 13 great teams shooting for the glory, and a mighty battle raged.  Round 1 covered the GISHWHES scavenger hunt, and a few people discovered the beauty of a dutch oven.  Round 2 was an eclectic mix of music, but across the board everyone thought Ciara sang Milkshake, not Kelis. In Round 3 Mind Your Own Quiz-ness felt comfortable enough with our former Secretary of State to call her Condi Rice.  Yay everyone

The Time Paulina Force Fed Me Soup
Gallifreak

Holy crap you guys. How did nobody tell me that Wendy's is now serving up cheese covered Baconator fries? Three of my absolute favourite things, fries, bacon and cheese! I kinda got excited when I read that question tonight. I took one look over at Paulina with the excitement on my face and she had one word and one word only for me. That word: NO! As in absolutely not. As in there's no freakin' way you're going to eat that heart attack waiting to happen. What can I say, she loves me so much that she doesn't want me to die at and early age. Aw well, it's probably a zillion calories anyway, and I'm pretty sure my arteries don't need the extra abuse. We even had a round all about GISHWHES.

Magic Mike XXL is the Greatest Movie of Our Generation
Sally

Give this movie literally all the Oscars. Is there an Oscar for "body hair removal?" No? Add that category and give it to MM:XXL. I wish I could've given points to the two teams who wrote "Chippendale's," because I too wouldn't call MMXXL something America should be disappointed in. This is American. A country on earth. We have movies about male strippers that are perfect films. You can't make me ashamed of that.    WE FINALLY HAD A DANCE OFF!!!! Obviously it was to Ginuwine's "Pony" and after some uncomfortable moments, Havilsex proved that they have what it takes to make me feel uncomfortable enough to just give them first place.    Hot
