New England Liberals Drink a Lot of Wine and Other Less-Than-Shocking Revelations
Matthew

Tonight, True West Brewery had a case of the Mondays...because Monday is Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz night! And after a stellar inaugural night, 15 great teams came to play in a battle of wits in a quest for glory, bragging rights, and even a prize for the top two finalists (with a few chances to win bonus prizes sprinkled throughout). Several teams returned to vie for the crown once more along with some hungry new squads on the block. Who would walk away with the top spot? Who would have to wait another week for their time in the sun? Who would spill his barely-touched first beer and break a glass during the middle of the sixth round? Well, that last one was me, but I've never been accused

Concerning 4 Days Until Apocalypse and Son/Daughter of Bad Penmanship Guy
Handsome Mike

Well. It’s that week. 4 days until the beginning of the end. 4 days until the ascension of the 1st horseman of the apocalypse. 4 days until Donald Trump becomes the logical conclusion to the American Dream, that money and celebrity can buy power, that people will vote for you if you’re loud and obnoxious enough with a brand to back it. But, in spite of the looming darkness ahead, there is a silver lining: it gave you guys so much ammo for your team names.   TRUMP RELATED TEAM NAMES FOR TONIGHT:   Majestic Yams Commander in Queef 4

We Are Who They Thought We Were
QM Kriegs

What are we? Are we the person we create in our minds and project onto people or are we only the projection of what each individual sees us as? Maybe something in between. Maybe nothing at all. The truth is it doesn’t matter. We have many selves. Some we can control and some we cannot. One could spend their whole life trying to perfect each one. I implore you to pick one and run with it.   I, myself would love to perfect my comedy self. It is the one I use most often. It is almost to the point where I crave laughter. If someone does not laugh at my jokes I exert extra effort into finding someway to get a giggle out of them. Be it fart jokes or physical humor.

Thank You For Laughing
SonyaDee

I dislike mustard under most circumstances. I don’t mind a little spicy mustard on a charcuterie board or some honey mustard dressing on a chicken salad, but in general I try to avoid mustard in all its various forms. Bristol Brewing Company makes some delicious Laughing Lab pretzels that come with their house-made Beehive-cheese sauce and “spicy mustard”. So I tried it. Y’all…I could eat this mustard with a spoon. It is RIDICULOUSLY good. I can’t even describe it…just try it. I know I generally only blog about food and weather, but FOR REALS. I convinced the management to sell me a 32oz tub of their house mustard, so now I can eat it FOREVER. Because

RUNAWAY BUCKEYES, FTW!
Chris

Ugh. It has been pissing rain in Madison for the past week or so. Not non stop, but way more than anyone has any reason to expect for this time of year. I mean, no one thinks “Yeah, the middle of January in central Wisconsin, it’s gonna be a sheet of ice” so I was surprised when we had something close to a full house down in the Great Dane basement for the quiz tonight. Blindsided is a bit much, but not far from the truth. I was prepared for eight teams, thinking I had over prepared, so when we had nine show up it was officially a good night. Who’s gonna get upset about that? Not this guy.

Evening, yall. My name is Stanley. Pleased to make your acquaintance.

Praise God in all His Glory, I've come to Make Base Camp Great Again.   It was a good one tonight, kids. Some good old fashioned hotly contested, edge-of-your-seat shit. Loved it.

Let's Go Exploring

Another amazing night in Brooklyn, where we had an astonishing turnout of 8 teams this week!! Half of which knew about GWD, and the other half not so much. Regardless of their knowledge of our trivial ways, we all had some fun. Here's how it went down: R1: Recently in stuff. Obama, Obama, Obama. Oh yeah, and what's his face... R2: A round on cover songs from the 90s. Some solid covers were done, and others were real "palm-in-face" experiences. Some songs included Creep by Radiohead, and Dreams by The Cranberries (which sounded like it was covered in Japan) R3: 50/50 Round on either the brain or the butt.

I Have A Dream
JoeMills

I hope everyone had a wonderful Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Day today.  I certainly did.  This first federal holiday of the year is a good reminder of how far we've come and how far we have to go in this country when it comes to race.  And this will probably be the last MLK day ever, so it was extra special.   I celebrated with Indian food.  Nothing like a good saag paneer from Little India to celebrate MLK.  Little India is the closest Indian restaurant to my house, so I can't knock it too much, but there are far better Indian joints in town.  India Oven down on Colorado boulevard has a superior lunch buffet, that includes a few dessert

Something True
RobotNarwhal

You all probably noticed this already, but I sort of tend to fall a bit behind on certain trends.  I don’t listen to the radio much, I don’t read “the papers,” I don’t have television*, and outside of technology I use for work or am given for free, I tend to be a bit stuck in my ways.  I’m couching this because I’ve recently discovered some things that I’m really excited about, and they are totally so several years ago.   I recently discovered the joys of TryMe brand Tiger Sauce.  I got a bottle in a gift pack of sauces I received back in 2015 (nope, not a typo), and I just recently opened it.  And have

Some of the Most Racist Things You Can Say on MLK Day
JWarr

We did indeed have a team with several variations on Why does the black girl have to come up with the MLK Name? and MLK: It Does a Body Good and Bullets Over MLK Day: A New Broadway Musical.  I mean, all in the spirit, I suppose.  So let's review the most insensitive moments that happened tonight. What did Romans learn to do with glasses back in the day? Reading? Sensible.  Wrong, but sensible.  Make fire? Correct. That's what we were going for.  "Burn slaves".  OH FUCK, REALLY? TODAY? TODAY YOU WROTE THAT ANSWER. "Oh hey, did you turn in round 5?"  Um, no.  Fuck.

What! The Shatner Version is not the Original?
St. Jimmy

When the William Shatner’s version of Common People showed up as an audio clip in round 2 it immediately brought me back to an interesting moment at my wedding. To save money (and boast my ego), I had decided to dj my own wedding. I, of course, included Pulp’s Common People on the playlist. While the song was playing, a friend, whose pop culture knowledge I admire, came up to me and asked if this was a cover of the William Shatner song. I said no and that it was a Pulp song first. After I recovered from this shock, I got to think. For a certain subset of Americans, they have only heard the Shatner version. If you are not a college student, hipster, or anglophile, how would you

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.

No, You're a Four Eyed Butt Brain!
Jake Schwingshakl

It would seem I'm taking Blog advice from my fifth grade nephew with a title like that. But as two of our rounds dealt with an optometrist's profession as well as the fact that we had an entire round in which the answers were either "Butt" or "Brain" it was only a matter of time until someone used it as an insult. Like I told my Quizzers, I'm an Ass, not a Butt. I'd have used that as my blog title, but we're not really supposed to swear in our blog titles, and even with those little asterisk things, people totally know what you're talking about anyway, hence mentioning it in the body of the blog.  I tell my Quizzers on a semi-regular basis that they're the reason
