Woke up As September Ends
Dustin

Hey, wake me up when September ends huh? Oh what? actually over now? What the holy hell has happened to the summer. It definitely had an autumn feel in the air at the Cedar Hills Schmizza this Thursday. Going outside for the bonus questions I could feel the chill in the air about my bald spot. I need to start wearing some head gear these Thursday nights so I don't catch cold. I wont lie, I did back to back Quizmaster nights this week as Wednesday night some of you saw me host the all Firefly Quiz and then to turn it around and meet you all last night. I'm starting to feel my age maybe. The team that tallied up the most points, and possibly pints, this night.....well they

Traffic Woes, No More!
The Fish Chick

Hello quizzers! Thanks for joining in last night, although it was rough for some we still had some laughs! I still want you to know that Tyra Banks was never a secret agent during the Nazi-era… Because she wasn’t born until 1973. Congrat’s to TC on their 1-point win over Triforce!   Now the title of this blog has relevance. As The Fish Chick, my current duties are to drive all around Massachusetts servicing aquariums. And as such, I have been stuck in traffic since 3:30PM and am only JUST NOW (7:22PM) getting home. I have seen 7 vehicles stopped on the shoulder, 2 accidents, and far too many people headed to a Red Sox

Hey there, Nomad!! Thank you guys so much for letting me quiz with you! Although I’ve previously kept score for the AMAHZING Lindsay, last night was the first time I’ve had the pleasure of hosting for you! I have to give the hugest shout out to your regular scorekeeper Melissa for taking such good care of me. Now let’s dive in!  So what went down last night? Round 1 featured a bonus question about the ever lovely RuPaul. When I was in middle school in the early 90s, I remember seeing her featured in an advertisement and being very unsure of what was going on with her while simultaneously

Holy cow, y’all. Way to bring it! I love it when everyone in the bar is there for Quiz…it affects the energy of the whole place. There aren’t any non-quizzers scowling in the corner, there aren’t any noisy drunk businessmen for me to shout over, we are all united as simply those who wish to quiz. And it’s a beautiful thing. And to all you regulars, thanks for sticking with me and showing the noobs such a good time. I got a new sofa! I’m sure you were wondering. It’s teal. Well, it’s actually Mermaid Caprice if you ask the salesman…but this is important because it marks the first time ever I have owned a BRAND NEW sofa. Every sofa

Round Two, FIGHT!
Cheems

In only our second quiz ever, we had a great night of fun, debauchery, and quiz! Ok, there was no debauchery, but we still had a fun quiz. I'd like to tell you more, but you had to be there. And you should! We had 6 teams show up and not shut up. All of them did great, but in the end, only two could tower above the rest. The Late Debate took hoe second place with 70 point, but 7 Hours in Heaven were too difficult to overcome as they took a 10 point victory to seal their win. While there's no prize, Uncle Doug's Mouth Hugs was by far my favorite team name. Come on out to Royal Drummer to keep our fun little

Hey errybody! My name is Harry, but most people call me Cheems (a version of my last name). I'm a newbie to the west coast as I've spent my entire life in the northeast.

I enjoy wheat microbrews, live music, and learning about the quirkier/secretive sides of metropolitan hubs.

See you at the quiz!

Quizmaster Jess of Cats, Queen of Spain
Jess of Cats

Last night’s Round 7 was another mystery round, sort of. The answers to the first seven audio-based questions each contained the word “queen,” and question 8 was about the movie “The Queen.” I was very excited about this round, because it’s always been a career goal of mine to be a queen. Not in the sense of a spoiled princess who received a promotion, but an actual monarch. This is unrealistic, I know. I am actually a pretty down to earth person. In the incredibly unlikely event that the next several million people in line for the throne of England die and I’m the only one who can do the job, all of the trappings of royal life would probably

Because we've given up... Fruit Ninja: The Movie
QM Colleen

I kinda promised Tim I would write another blog researching some... Rule 34 shit. I have decided to save this for another day because it requires research I don't have time to do and research I'd rather not do right this second. Promise I'll do it another time. I'm gonna take the easy road and talk about Fruit Ninja: The Movie. It's pretty smart on their part, selling the rights to a movie now. It's basically an obsolete game now that the miracle of technology has brought us crazy complicated apps like Clash of Clans and basically anything else that doesn't involve simple swiping actions. It's way more stressful than Candy Crush - basically, I couldn't name a single person that

Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

Dust Off That Thursday Playlist
Renerdssance Man

So good to be back at the Blackstone on Thursday nights after a few months fooling around on Mondays. Last night was a tough evening for me, so it was very nice to have the familiar confines of the Blackstone to fall back on. Here’s to many successful Thursdays going forward! The two titans of the Blackstone battled it out last night, with the Famous Hussies of History taking home the top prize after making up a sizable deficit in Round 8 over TGIT (Thank God It’s Thursday), with the final margin sitting at one point. That’s two quizzes in a row at the Blackstone where the winner finished ahead by just one point

A night of hunchbacks
Kelli

A super fun evening for me to come back to after being out of town for 2 Wednesdays! I was happy to see the regular players still in attendance and happier still to see some new faces at Transplants Brewery :)    By far my favorite round was Acrostic Universe...because not enough people knew what an acrostic poem was. Those that did nailed the 8th answer! And as a science teacher, I appreciated the round on stones and rocks with our bonus question on metamorphic rock. Science nerds unite!   I was glad to give our first place prize over to a team of regulars who haven't had a win yet. Apparently a change of team name gives them the ONE POINT edge

You Can Get With This, Or You Can Get WithThat
Hammer

Last night was a great night at Chino Valley Brewery thanks to the Greatness of Geeks Who Drink. It's also a total coincidence that I cant focus while catching up on South Park and prepping for my radio show later tonight. Jeff and Xavier were on hand last night to take care of all of our drink needs, I drank the Daydream Pale Ale, Mango Blonde, and the Celtic Copper. Enough about my night though, here is how the quiz went. Museum Mafia, got an early start on the quiz by earning a perfect score in Round 1: Eight Quick, Unofficial Questions On Nicknames. I gave you a quick description and a famous nickname, you just told me who or what I'm talking about. Brewkkake,

It's time for Playoffs!
McFly

That's right. With the month ending this weekend, that means it is time for BASEBALL PLAYOFFS! I know, I know. It's stupid fuh-ball season and everyone can fall back on the "BASEBALL IS SO BORING" sort of crap. Well go ahead and do it, then. I don't care. I am a baseball fan and I love the grind of the sport. That's right. The grind. Because when you're playing football, grind is just hitting someone for an extra yard. In baseball, the grind is real. There aren't time limits. There aren't mental breaks. Every second, you have to be ready for the next play. During the playoffs, tension runs higher, too. Every out matters. I know I am ranting about a sport no one

The Coolest Thing That's Ever Happened at Quiz

Ahoy! I'm honestly still a little in awe of how awesome tonight was. Did someone get engaged? Announce they're having a little quiz baby? No. Tonight, I had the honor bestowed upon me by the fine folks at Altitude Brewing and Supply of being the Quiz Mistress who got to give away the most amazing prize in the history of quiz tonight. Thanks to their generosity and all around kickassness, first place got to walk away with two tickets to the GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL, as well as a free home brewing class. I was so jealous I almost jumped someone in the parking lot. Our winners were so stoked and that just made it that much better. I'm still riding high from the evening so let just

Regulars make me happy, it tells me I am doing a good job. Tonight we had a quiz. It was a good quiz. It was full of win. 8 rounds of win in fact. I do love watching the teams drift up and down in the standings as the evening progresses. Tonight was a special treat as several teams held back their jokers for round 8. It was what you call an upset, with our winners for the night shooting up from deep in the ranks to take the title in round 8. Our

Tim

Hey gang.   Tough quiz this week. After a few straight weeks with giant scores, we came back to Earth. I point that out not to impugn your trivia prowess, but to acknowledge the difficulty of this week's questions. Round four, on events that occurred historically in the last week of September, was a particularly cruel round, and our round on special forces and French fashion wasn't much easier. You all made the most of it, though, with our top teams cracking the high sixties and low seventies. Well done.   Nothing's Ever Too Soon clawed their way to the top, taking down Fuck! I Dunno and everyone else. Congrats

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!
