INT. JERRY's apartment. GEORGE enters.   Jerry: Hey. George: Hey. Jerry: So how're things with Sheila? George: Oh, don't get me started? Jerry: Problems in bed? George: No, actually, who knew? No, she's obsessed with this TV show. Jerry: What show? George: It's that animated thing, it's on Sunday nights, but it's not the popular one, it's the other one. Jerry: Oh, that one.  George: Yeah. And it's not the worst thing in the world, but she's planning her life around it. We've always gotta be in by 10 so she can see it on that programming block when they rerun it! We can never see movies, can't

I'm so excited to be hosting Pub Quiz for Geeks who Drink! I moved to Portland 4 years ago with my wife, Gayle, to attend grad school at PSU. I've since earned a Master's Degree in Theater, with an emphasis on Performance. Hopefully I can fold some of that into rocking the mic like a vandal. Did that make me sound old? I feel old.

There Was Quiz on Thursday
WillSalerno

What is up?   There was a quiz on Thursday, and I was there. You might have been there too. I say that not because I don't remember, but I don't know who is reading this blog. Yes, that makes sense.   Five teams played quiz on Thursday, and the names of those teams are listed to your left. As the list indicates and I also remember, Houston Family Swim Team Reunion won! Congratulations guys and or girls who were on that team.   Rob wore a hat at quiz. That is another memory I have from remembering, not from the pictures someone or I took.   Round 2 was a music round. I played 8 clips from 8 different songs and

Rumble in the ROC
QM Colleen

Nox quiz saw the an epic showdown between 4 Rumble in the Pub teams and one that is refraining from joining the competition because, you know, responsible adult things like time management. Fair enough. I just want to take this blogging opportunity to say that I am so happy and excited to see the growth in Rochester's quiz scene these days. We've come a long way since my days as a quizzer at Lovin' Cup a couple years ago. Rochester was built on geekdom. We were, and in some ways still are, a city of engineers. Kodak, Xerox, B&L left their mark on our city and won us a revitalizing new photonics center. We have 1 billion colleges and universities in our area. We are geeks

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.

Anger, Grief, and Denial About My Small QM Penis
DiscoUke

Hey, y'all! We had one of our biggest nights ever last night. 10 teams! Holy shit! We started off with Round One, in which all of your answers were legal Scrabble words, like Anchor and English. Round Two was our audio round, featuring musicians who really needed help. I died a little for each team who didn't get Fiona Apple. Round Three was a multiple choice round on U.S. political elections. Round Four was all about parasites and colorful things. Did you know Mr. Green from Clue used to be Reverend Green? I learned something new. Round Five featured pairs of neighboring

Who am I? Why am I Quizzing?
Evan

Great quiz, if I do say so myself.  Favorite part of the night for me?  Shouting "BEEEES!" into the mic.  It may sound dumb, but it's the simple pleasures that get me through the day.   By the way, the most popular beer in Australia is Carlton Draught, followed by Victoria Bitter.  Also, Budweiser is to lager as Guinness is the stout in the way that if I walked into a dive bar and asked for a generic lager, they'd give me a Budweiser, and if I asked for a generic stout, they'd give me a Guinness.  I mean, if they happened to have Guinness.  Although I guess I'd have to get outta Austin if I actually wanted to prove that.  Otherwise

   You guys sure know how to make a gal feel welcome! I love subbing at O’niell’s, what with the awesome staff, getting to hang out with Fernando for two hours, and just the great quiz vibe that you all project. Thanks! We had some pretty awesome rounds tonight including an amazing audio round on BEES! And no, we did not accept yellow jackets. For ANY answer! We also made fun of fancy beer and Poland was an answer twice which may be just a coincidence, or it may be weird! I don’t know! You know what I do know? John Waters loves flamingos! That is not what you were expecting, was it? I bet it wasn’t! Ok, so as non-sequiturs go, now it’s time for

I rock climb sometimes inside (outside is where snakes live!), ride a 1980 Vespa scooter with the Pharaoh Scooter Cult, and share a house with another QM (my husband Sean) two rescued Pit Bulls and a cat named Muffin. 

I like making art, sewing stuff, playing with legos, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and enjoying a fine cup of tea.

PBR over Heineken
Handsome Lou

Round 6: Domestic Disturbance was all about imported beers. It’s a good thing we were at the Bronx Alehouse because the servers and bartenders knew all the answers! Question number 8 asked; “In the famous scene from Blue Velvet, Frank Booth highly prefers which American beer to Heineken?” The answer is Pabst Blue Ribbon! Good old PBR, over the imports! And I have to agree. I would take a cold PBR over a Heineken every day. GO USA! We had a great quiz last night at Bronx Alehouse. Teams were pretty even through most of the quiz.

Quizmaster Mike

I used to be a pizza delivery driver in this city. Actually, only a block away from Bruno’s at Fresco Cafe. Outside of Geeks, it was the best job I’ve ever had. 90% of your time is just driving around listening to music. You only deal with your boss for the 3 minutes when you come back into the restaurant for an order and leave again. You only deal with customers for 3 minutes on the opposite side when you’re getting the money and handing them the pizza. The rest is driving. Two interesting things I learned from delivering food. One, i know what the inside of your house looks like. And yes, it’s very very weird. Most of the people ordering

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.

The Night That the Lights Went Out in Traverse
SuperDave

Mother Nature can be quite temperamental at times, and Sunday night was a wonderful example of her brute force.  Severe thunderstorms with tornado-force winds and hail ravaged the Grand Traverse area (with an actual twister touching down in nearby Glen Arbor), which uprooted massive trees with relative ease (as evidenced by the photographic evidence) and cut power to the majority of the area.  It is quite a finale for the last day of the Traverse City Film Festival, and undoubtedly ruined the weekend for visitors and tourists coming from afar.  But there was a beacon of refuge for the many seeking someplace dry following the storm, and that place was Kilkenny’s

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!)

We had a one point game last night!

My Whole Life Has Been Post-9/11
Dr. Rex N.F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

If I were going to rank my top three birthdays it would, not necessarily in order of prefence, go like this:    Eleventh birthday. It was the first time in three years I hadn’t had a birthday party. My father and stepmother took me out to Chuck E. Cheese, we had a pizza and played Skee-Ball against each other. After dinner, we took a walk from where we lived in central Austin to the University of Texas campus, walked around the Texas Tower, and home. It was after ten at night when we headed back, the walk was probably a total of a little over two miles.

Doctor Nick: Thymelord

This will go down as my favorite summer of all time. I am sure that this bizarre weather has something to do with our inevitable atmospheric collapse and death, but at least we can look back at the summer of 2015 as one of the most pleasant and wet summers Salt Lake City has ever had in our lifetimes. And really, living in the now is the right way to live. Right? Going to a certain public place this morning has reminded me how much I want to ban cable news stations. We don’t need them. We don’t even need the shitty local news shows that make us more stupid each morning and evening. This is why I stopped listening and supporting NPR. I am better off the less “news”

Nick is one of the rare people who was born in Las Vegas long before it became Disneyland for degenerates. His growing discomfort for heat, and ongoing feud with some Canadian boy named Celine Dion led him to the land of Zion. Upon discovering this wasn't the same land of Zion mentioned in The Matrix, he decided to make the best of the situation and began hosting pub quizzes. 

His hobbies include drinking, eating, teaching children to swear, cooking, and being one of the last people on earth who thinks CDs are the only way to buy music. His turnoffs are walks on the beach, because that combines sun, sand, and countless bacterias growing in the moist heat. 

By day he looks at an endless supply of MBA student assignments and weeps for the future. His most recent inappropriate comment to a student was, "I could take your business proposal to run an armoury for Live-Action-Role-Players seriously if it wasn't for the 793 grammatical errors which impeded my giggling."

He's not a licensed therapist, but he's happy to take a look inside your head and solve your problems. Better yet, come out to a quiz and drink your troubles away.

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
