"Powderpuff." Honestly.
Gerry-oke

Greetings, citizens of Townsville!  How great was our quiz last night, huh?  R3 was a highlight for me: Sooner or Later: Toon Time!  I gave you an increasingly obvious list of characters, you were to name the series.  Some of my personal favorites here, including the Animaniacs and Duck Tales (to which you all dutifully included the “WOO-oo!”).  And then there was Q2.  The list of characters was Fuzzy Lumpkins (which sounds like something dirty), Princess Morbucks, Sedusa, Mojo Jojo and Buttercup.  Some of you answered “Powderpuff Girls.”  I decided not to single any of those teams out... but that hurt me.  Not enough to

AaronMorse

Hello again!  We had another fun night of Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes at The LOST Dutchman.  Let's get right to the heart of things.  Tonight, we had ourselves a bit of a conundrum.  First, when I gave you the rules, I explicitly said that the Quizmaster is never wrong.  However, on Round 8 question 5 may have been a little bit wrong about something.  This is like the old "which is greater, the irresistible force or the immovable object".  Well, I can admit when I am wrong because it happens so rarely.  I would savor this moment.  I know very little about sportsball, so when I saw the initials AL I assumed

I live a very animated life.
Major Tom

Did any of you catch my show on Heavy Metal Television this week? I sure didn't! My show is Monday through Friday at 1 am to 5 am. I am very glad that it's prerecorded! I got home after Quiz and the requisite after-Quiz partying, and I tried to watch some of my show. I made it through about 30 minutes. For a teacher/Quizmaster/video host/music reviewer, it's pretty difficult to stay up that late on a weekday. Also, there was beer involved last night, so it was all the more difficult to stay awake. I am really looking forward to all the fans I will be getting soon. I'm picturing unemployed guys, meth heads who can't sleep, and Europeans and Asians. Maybe some Australians. I have always

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Ahhhhh, Wednesday brings sweet life to the Quiz.  All the worries of the week slip away when Quiz comes alive—as I plug my super-powered mixer in, I can hear the joy of you all.  When we clap at the start, we can dance through the challenges.  And when we do an epic Beer Sponsor drawing, someone gets to win a fully awesome VIP tour! That winner was Doug, and now I am left to wonder who will be joining him on the Odell Brewery extravaganza.  As mentioned, it’s a quick drive to Ft.

Drugs Are Bad, MKAY!
A.

Hi Little Woodrow’s Midtown pub quizzers. Thanks for coming out to quiz last night. It was super fun. It was also a really, really beautiful evening. The weather was clear, mild, and dry, much like a hugely wasteful bottle of Fiji water. There was something about the evening—the weather, your smug little faces, quiz—that had me positively blessed-out. I was surrounded in a good aura. Good vibrations were felt. My beatific radiance was so strong, some of you notice. To quote Joey Bags, “Are you on heroin?!” No, reader, I was not high—nor had I imbibed—I was just in a happy place.

Cartoons Aren't Just For Kids @ THE LABORATORY!!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

If you think they are, you obviously haven’t seen Archer, Rick & Morty, the Simpsons, or South Park. But that’s not to say only THOSE shows are for adults, because plenty of cartoons are pretty damn amazing. You know, like The Magic Schoolbus. Have you ever gotten REALLY high and watched that show? It’s amazing! All you have to do is follow these simple steps: 1.    Visit your doctor and say you have glaucoma or injured your dignity one time2.    Acquire prescription for marijuana3.    Apply to purchase medicinal weed4.    Skip steps 1-3 and just go to a recreational shop5.

A Memory of Farrah
Joshuay

Good evening, friends! I promised you all a story about Farrah Fawcett, so here it is. I grew up in Houston. Born and raised. I went to college in San Antonio, and would (as most college students do) return home for holidays and summer, and usually get a job on said return stays. For a time, I worked at the Gap in Willowbrook Mall. Apparently it's not there anymore, but honestly I haven't been to that mall in at least 10 years. Anyway, one Tuesday we're just doing our thing; it's the middle of the summer, middle of the week, middle of the day, so there's not a lot going on. Kinda slow. And in walks a woman in a white terry track suit. You know the kind that were popular in

I Guess I'm Not That Hip
Justin Mazouat

I need to add some more hip music to my playlist. I'll get it though. Find some songs with banjos, make sure the front man wears flannel, maybe a manic pixie dream girl swaying along, those are some of the requirements right? Are Trilby hats still a thing other than when people are making fun of stereotypical neckbeards? Am I mixing up stupid terminology? I swear, I feel older every day.   Get off my lawn!   Thanks to the teams that came out to Curtis Club last night. We had some intimate quizzy times, and the rest of the regulars missed out. MISSED OUT I say! I'll be back next week, fresh and rested from my trip to

Best answer of the night:  YUCK!! For when a girl wants to bonk her father.  (The crowd got unruly when I forgot to give the real answer of "Elektra Complex" 2nd best answer:  Arby's for the fast-casual chain.  Why?  Because it reminded me of Jon Stewart.  Damn, I miss him already. Moan of the night:  The reaction to my false answer to the verb that creates "durst" and "dasn't".  Most teams put "to do".  As I'm likely to do, I said the answer "to do"....is wrong!  Ha! Beer of the night:  some rye and cocoa porter that is 10% alcohol.   Straight Out of Compton is playing here.  Pretty

RIP Troy McClure
Bob with a J

Hi, I'm Bob! You may remember me from such quiz blog posts as "Original Quiz Host Still Loves You" and "Substitutes: Nature's Prophylactic." You're probably wondering why Nate wasn't at Comrade Brewing last night. That's an easy one! In the lingo used by those "in the biz", Nate was "snuggling the brass monkey." You know, "cruising with the queen mother." Do I have to spell it out for you? The important thing is, he'll be back next week to congratulate(?) you on your low scores! Even on a regular night, 63 points is a low, low winning score. It's even worse when you realize that last night featured THREE potential 16 point rounds. When Nate leaves, everything falls to hell. 2015

The Story of Alison's High School Suspension*
Elephant Gangsta Tooth

Now the title of this blog is exciting, but unfortunately… there is an asterisk. But I felt the need to tell you this story because of one of the questions in this week's quiz. Round 8, Question #3, was about Josh Otrovsky (who's wikipedia page is worse than mine…. if I had one).  He is also known as "The Fat Jew," the correct answer to that question. This nickname brought back a painful, strange memory.   At the end of my sophomore year of high school, 2 classmates and I were accused of being prejudice towards another classmate. Here is the long, uneventful story. This poor

My name is Alison (aka Elephant Gangster Tooth) and I come from the far land of New Mexico and moved to Denver in 2013. I geek out when it comes to video games and fitness, which contradict each other nicely. I recently got married and sold my soul to my husband Jeff in exchange for an endless supply for Starbursts.

The first rule of Geeks who Drink is that you should tell everyone about Geeks who Drink
Ravioli

I guess one of the benefits of launching a new quiz location in an area already so-serviced is that you (read: I) don’t have to spend 15 minutes explaining how Geeks Who Drink is Different (TM) from all those other “trivia nights”. And also, the teams will call you on your shit when your (read: my) spreadsheet is, in the technical parlance, “fucked”. Such a thing happened tonight, and led me to go back through my past quizzes to make sure that I hadn’t screwed over any teams that had believed they could joker to victory. Luckily, the problem seemed to be contained to the version of the

Normally I don't like to brag.  Okay, that's a lie.  I like to brag just fine, but I just don't like to brag about it.  But tonight I'm PRETTY SURE we beat the world record for total number of prizes in a Fado pub quiz, and beat it by a mile.There's all the things you normally get:  three gift cards, five bonus beers, a Secret Word prize, and the Money Cards game at the end.  And as always, I shamelessly would like to express gratitude to Red Hook and Jameson for their sponsorship, which keeps the goodness flowing. But tonight, we had the Quiz for a Cause, and LLS

Quiz, and the world quizzes with you.  Blog, and you blog alone.

About the quizmaster:

Stephen spent the first 24 years of life in northern Colorado, when a little tech company called Microsoft convinced him to try living in the Pacific Northwest.  After four years, he returned to Denver; but at the end of 2009 another little startup named Amazon lured him back to Seattle, and, as it so happens, he moved into a little place across the street from a place with a pub quiz.

After being a team player for a year and a half, Stephen took the plunge and auditioned for quizmastery.  He currently resides in lower Queen Anne, in a deluxe apartment in the sky-y-y, with his lovely wife Laura, a psycho killer cocker spaniel from hell named Kuno, and a sociopath cat named George.

You can spot Stephen quizzing on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm at Fado Irish Pub.

What a Quiz! What a Lovely, Lovely Quiz!
Jason

We did it, everyone. YOU did it. Bringing out your friends, your family, your foes, and everyone in between, we finally hit 18+ teams for the third week in a row, with a second 21-team quiz this month. What a blast it is to quiz with so many folks, and even more so for me as the host. Thank you. What does this mean? Well, it means we most likely get a Scorekeeper. That'll mean a better quiz for all of us, and who doesn't want that? Plus it means we can have even more teams come out and join the party. Let's pack the theater! We're halfway there now, judging by the pics from last night! We had a super-hard quiz last night,

And then the conversation with my favorite guys later involved, uh, shall we say body parts, odors, and adult toys. Jeremy: lol! Those goofballs.

Only 11 points separated the six teams that stayed through all eight rounds Wednesday, with a mere two between first and third place. Finishing atop the leaderboard at the Uptown Tavern & Rooftop last night was Grapes or Coconut, who scored 58 in a rare win for a team that uses their Joker on an eight-point round. Coming in second was The Annexation of Puerto Rico, whose eight points in a Jokered Round 8 put them one point ahead of Guts and Glory Hole, barely finishing out of the money.
