Actually Ross isn't even my name
Catwoman

Although I pride myself on my impeccable spelling (no, I did not hesitate as I typed that word) I do not expect quiz-goers to know how to spell all of our answers.   So when team Drewber decided to add “(sic)” to any question where they weren’t sold on their own spelling it was pretty enjoyable.  One thing they can spell: Cambridge Steamer. Was that an answer to a question? Nope; not even close.   On round 2 one of our correct answers was “Snoop Doggy Dog” and disappointingly almost every team wrote “Snoop Dog”.  I would have much preferred “Snoop Lion” but I guess our teams

What's up, Geeks? Thanks again for coming out last night!  We started off with Round One, which was all about cats. Apparently, the prophet Muhammad really liked cats; who knew? Round Two was our music round, featuring songs about crime. Round Three was our speed round; you had to name 8 countries involved in the TPP. It was super rough. Round Four was all about The Talking Heads and TV personalities. I think every team correctly id'd "Burning Down The House." Round Five was our visual round, featuring billiard scenes from different movies. Round

Quizzers! Check out the first blog from the Newest North Shore QM and the regular host of the Lucky Dog in Beverly, MA Sharon! Hello Geeks who Drink followers! Tonight was the first night at a new venue, Lucky Dog in Beverly, MA. Three strong teams, McBacon and Aaron, Josh's Double, and Uncles with Benefits, were the contenders of the night. Adam was the main quizmaster, training Sharon, who will be the regular host at the venue. The main competition was the U.S. versus Japan soccer game.   Round one, which was all about cats, was harder than the teams expected it would be. Did you know that 70 million stray cats

A Massive Dump Right In Their Little Bird Faces
Quizmaster Nate Dogg

"What is democracy but mob rule, and when has the mob ever made a good choice? Take the case of Jesus. On the day he was crucified, the Romans gave the mob a choice to free either Jesus or Barabbas, and the crowd went: "Mmmm, let's see, Jesus Christ, greatest man ever, or Barabbas, petty lowlife thief-I got to go with Barabbas...yeah, he's our man. Barabbas in 33!” ---Bill Maher, "True

In 1992, a crack-addicted quizmaster one-man commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime he didn't commit. This man promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Anchorage, Alaska underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a quizmaster of fortune. If you have a pub quiz problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him....maybe you can hire Quizmaster Nate Dogg.

Happy Belated Independence Day Drinking
Bobaloo

After the fireworks and all of the day drink that was had on Saturday, Bar One rocked the house tonight with a solid set of teams and some hot competition as we roll right into July and all that summer has to offer. See: sweat.   Tonight’s quiz started off with a feline-related round that was purr-fect for cat lovers and terrible for people who are allergic like me. Round 2’s music round drew out the Jack Johnson answer for anyone who sort coos and soft-sings to an acoustic guitar, but sadly, it’s not Jack Johnson. We cruised into rounds 3-4-5 with Terminatory GenysAss pulling ahead early on, until Something

Oh beautiful...
Steve

What a fantastic way to close America’s Independence Day weekend. Cari Lloyd just rocketed to the fame with the only hat trick ever scored in World Cup history assuring her rightful spot on the Wheaties box. It reminds me of the Sochi Winter Olympics when TJ Oshie became a household name after his shootout win against Russia; and then suddenly he is shilling for Enterprise Rent-a-Car (Oshie gotta eat!).   As Quizmaster I am always reminding you that anything is fair game as when it comes to team names as we are equal opportunity offenders here. It is all about context, its gotta be funny, and as the Gunny once said there is no racial bigotry here. However...just

No...The answer is NOT the Grateful Dead
Tara Kennedy-Kline

What happens when a group of strangers gather at a Taproom During the FIFA Women's finals and a Pub Quiz breaks out? Much beer is consumed, screaming erupts at inappropriate moments and 90% of the answers are apparently "The Grateful Dead".   Luckily, there was a small dog present and some kickass flatbreads...and Jodi and Chris showed up "Better Late than Never"...so the evening was redeemable.  The competition between Mud, Sweat & Beers and The Unicorn Pies, was almost as fierce as the soccer game...and twice as many red cards were thrown out for breaking of RULE #2 - "Don't F*ck with The QUIZMASTER!" but at the end of the game, the teams realized that Tom Foolery

The Cat's Meow
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

It is nice to see everyone back after the Fourth with all their fingers and toes. I hope you all had a blast, figuratively speaking. I also hope all our furry friends are recovering from the blasts from the professional and amateur fireworks displays alike. Round One: There’s More Than One Way to Skin This Round gave us some cat facts. Cat Scratch Fever is a medical condition not brought on by Ted Nugent, kitties don’t care if cream is sweet because they can’t taste sweet, and 70 million cats in the U.S. are homeless so today is a good day to adopt. That being said I think it is pretty funny that two teams put Stephen Hawking as the answer to who drove the

Hello. When I feel awkward I like to talk about my cats. If you stick around long enough I will definitely start showing you pictures of my cats. However, I am feeling mildly confident right now so here are some fascinating tidbits about this QM:

I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you this is the most stable job I have ever had also, this is the longest I have ever held a job. It has been a challenge committing to the quiz but, it is one I do well with whiskey.

I enjoy watching copious amounts of television, muttering softly to myself and bowling. My day job is in the mental health field. I would like to adopt more cats. I am afraid of aliens and think human/ alien relations will never really jive. I have a degree in cultural anthropology. I am greatly looking forward to the impending apocalypse and hope you will enjoy my quiz. I suffer from a mild form of social anxiety and often fall victim to fear farts.

See you on Tuesday,

Andrea

      In a night of record-breaking events, quiz was just as amazing at O'Niell's!!! While we did not score any hat tricks in 15 minutes, win our third World Cup or get revenge that has been heavy on our minds the last 4 years, we had guys getting pumped for Jeff Mangum, women yelling out "Glee" and lots of chuckles over our round on where you had to change one initial. We had a tie-break for third. The returning champs came in fourth. We had people guess "The Jeffersons" for a Sesame Street clip (not one or two teams...TOO MANY OF YOU!!!!). Cats do not kill Vietnamese people. I could not find a stat on feral cats in Vietnam, but found a tasty recipe that they

  Here are the things we now know to be true:   You guys did fairly average at the cat round. Things you should know now: shitload of stray cats, Tylenol not good, camel kidneys, bird murder. Cats are kind of dicks.   Shame on you if you missed Judas Priest. Most of you got the hippie one though.   Talking Heads round went pretty well, except for that last one where I was playing the song the answer came from and they said it right before I asked the question..... I swear my background music hints are usually more subtle than this. Luckily most of you still blew it despite being told the answer in the song.   The

Happy Hungover Day
Amanda

If you’re anything NOT like me, you probably spent the majority of your day today in a hungover state. I say if you aren’t like me because I’m an old lady and was at home by 6pm yesterday. Mostly this was because I live in the approximate ghetto and have two small dogs that get real scared real quick so last night was a disaster with booms. But I’d wager the majority of everyone was out watching some fireworks and drinking lots of beer. The more exciting thing about today though was the Women’s World Cup final. Three goals in less than 15 minutes?! I feel like that is virtually unheard of. I know that most Americans aren’t

In general I like dogs, sweet tea and the beach. You hit me with one of those things and we just became best friends!

Things That Can Kill Your Cat, Excluding Curiosity
QM Colleen

Tonight we learned that a common painkiller can destroy your kitty cat. Tonight I learned that there is a pet section of WedMD. I now proudly present a list of things that will render your feline useless (aka dead).   - Tuna addiction (get them into a 12-step program)- More than 5 tablespoons of whiskey (but just 5 will put them in a kitty coma, so that might be fine if you need a bender partner)- Coffee/Tea/Red Bull- Chocolate- Milk (lactose intolerance is the devil's intestine sword)- Gum Drops- Toothpaste- Bubbleyum- Bones (chicken calcium sticks are literal intestine swords)- Raw Eggs- Sushi- Dog food

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. 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.

The King is Dead, Long Live the King....
SuperDave

  Sunday night proved to be quite the challenge in the Cherry Capital, with the start of the National Cherry Festival occurring only yesterday, and with Weird Al Yankovic taking the stage for this evening’s entertainment on West Bay.  Additionally, lest there be a patriotic hangover on the day after our nation’s 239th birthday (Happy belated Independence Day, everyone!), many trotted out their red, white, and blue to support Team USA’s women’s soccer team as they took to the pitch in Vancouver vs. Japan in the World Cup final.  Even with so much going on, the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz soldiered on at Kilkenny’s, and our two regular

I'm just your friendly neighborhood SuperDave, that's all. When I'm not enjoying a good pint of craft beer and memorizing seemingly useless nuggets of wisdom for trivia purposes, I can be found behind the mic at a Traverse City Roller Derby bout or a Traverse City Hounds Jr. A hockey game, cycling and camping through Northern Michigan, enjoying a Netfliz or Hulu binge (Adventure Time! C'mon, tell your friends!), or catching up on listening to a litany of podcast gold (Nerdist, Doug Loves Movies, Marek vs. Wyshynski, Short's Cast, Sound Opinions, et al). And I love tacos (almost as much as MY WIFE!)
