Hey there, Gourdough's!So I'm gonna level with you. I was on cloud 9 when we did the Presidential Limerick round. I mean, really, gleeful is an appropriate adjective. So happy I felt light-headed. And under normal circumstances, our blog would totally be about that.But something else happened that I need to share with you. This is my forum, so strap on in!As you die hard regulars might know, this was my first time hosting at Gourdough's downtown. So my arrival and setup was all about first impressions. The staff was super sweet and helpful, the donut trailer out front smelled divine, the atmosphere was really cool with all the exposed brick and whatnot... But as I was plugging

Don’t Forget to Wear Flowers in Your Hair Whilst Quizzing
AdamFedyski

With the number of songs that have been wrote about the city of San Francisco, you had to expect that we would drop a round all about the city and that the questions would be harder than “What’s the name of that there big bridge?” The quiz was far from easy tonight, with the first round requiring knowledge of San Francisco and the third round not being of the 50/50 variety. We needed somewhat of a challenge before Rumble in the Pub gets underway though. You don’t know about Rumble in the Pub?

You Get One Free Murder on Your Birthday
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Just remember, you have to use it by 11:59:59pm or it expires. It’s kind of like The Purge that way. Tonight, we had a lot of extra guests joining our proceedings at Glass Half Full, leaving only a scant few tables for people hoping to quiz with us. But never fear! Your intrepid quizmaster is flush with ideas on how to thin a crowd. For instance, playing Aqua’s Barbie Girl ad-nauseum seems to do the trick. Except for one group of birthday lollygaggers… hearing that 1997 pop hit only seemed to incense these birthday revelers. It was kind of like spraying for cockroaches, only to have the roaches complain about the

Jellyfish Really Need to Get With the Program
Patsquatch

Hey there I am Patsquatch, filling in for Mitchicus Mathematicus who was struck down with a vile sickness that has robbed him of his voice. Mitch was well enough to come and play, however, which was both great and disconcerting all at the same time. In a way it was sort of like making out with someone’s girlfriend while looking them right in the eyes. Not that I would know what that feels like as I have never done anything vaguely like that in my life. But I think it would probably feel sort of like that. Mitch was a good sport though and he was cool about it all and at no point tried to beat me senseless, which I would imagine is what he would do if I was actually making out with his

Nun-sense! Or something habit forming
Cupcake

   The other day I was driving up 5th street and I saw a pair of nuns walking down the sidewalk. I did a double take (which they totally noticed, I am embarrassed to admit [ok, not THAT embarrassed because I just did]) because that is not something you see every day! It was a residential area and I don't remember there being any churches or convents around there. Don't nuns live in convents? I guess I don't know that much about nun living situations other than what I've seen in movies or read in books. Maybe I need to do more nun-research! Let's see what I can find... According to Wikipedia (our number one news source for all weird late-night questions:) "A

Did Anyone See The Adventures of Tin Tin?
JoeMills

No.  The answer is no, no one saw Tin Tin.    The atmosphere was a bit subdued on this post-UMS edition of GWD at Historians Ale House.  For the layman, the Underground Music Showcase took place on Broadway in Denver this past weekend, and Historians was just feet away from its epicenter.  I spent some time here myself this weekend soaking up summer beers and the produce section-like spritzer system on the roof.  Many shenanigans took place, much fun was had.    Many of our regular geeks must have been recovering from all the fun.  Eleven teams turned out tonight to scribble for the prizes.  Just a quick PSA

So Many Butts
MarthaZapata

Today I learned that breastmilk cheese is a real thing. I’m pretty curious about it now. I’m sure there is a market for it, no doubt. However, I am curious as to how you can keep up with demand for it. I mean is it just one woman that is giving her breast milk or do you hire multiple lactating women to get the job done? I suddenly have this visual of these women in some back room hooked to pump machines for 12 hours a day or something. What kind of benefits package do you think they would have to offer someone to take that job? Thanks, Obama. I had fun subbing for Scott tonight at The Madrid Lounge.

Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair... Especially If You're Ugly
Sweet T

Tonight at the quiz we learned some fun stuff about the city of San Francisco! Which was a weird coincidence for me because last week I saw Ant-Man and Inside Out on the same day, both of which take place in SF, so it felt like one long fantasy infomercial. They were both really good movies, so now I'm trying to think of other things I like about said city I've never been to; first and foremost, my thoughts turn to the Frisco Melt from Steak 'n' Shake, which, as a good friend of mine once said, "is like God showed me His face, and let me hear His word... and then told me I could eat His face and His word." I do like me a burger (or most sandwiches really)

The Joys of a Quiz in Summer
JakeSchwingshakl

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love my job. But it's always a crap shoot having a quiz in the summer. When it's cool and snowy, the crowds are good because there's nothing else to do on those kinds of nights. But in the summer, when it's nice out, there's a lot more going on so you never can tell just what the crowd is going to be like. Tonight was one of those nights. The past few weeks, it's been three to four teams. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Tonight we doubled that. Eight teams, a few new faces, and ice cold beer. You can't go wrong with that.   You also can't go wrong making jokes about Freud, San Francisco, cinematic death scenes. Especially

Everyone Can Just Go Home...

I got Ernest Cline's autograph, JWarr got retweeted by him, I got to play Flight of the Conchords...everyone else can just go home, because my night was the best. For about 30 minutes before I had to set up quiz and do my damn job, I did get to enjoy some of Cline's talk about Star Wars, Fanboys, and Ready Player One. Unfortunately, I had to leave to come set up my audio and to my eternal dismay, believed I'd have to head home without his autograph. Low and behold, a Half Price Books angel came and grabbed my book and asked how to spell my name so that I could get his autograph as well as all the lucky assholes in the theater. You all can be envious! Envious I say!!! Now,

  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.

Handwriting. It's Important.
RobinRyan

When quizzing, it's important to remember that I have to decipher the words and letters you are scribbling down on the answer sheet.  If I can't tell what you are writing, it is probably incorrect.  If it is a team name it will probably go down in infamy on the scoresheet incorrectly.  Because let's be honest, once I type in the team name once I don't want to have to go back and fix it.  That would take seconds of effort.   Tonight though, I fixed two names, because I really do care.  The first one, sillily misspelled Rock.  They accidentally wrote Yankee's Suck.  Don't worry guys, I got your back.  All fixed.

It's starting to get a little crazy at Fado Irish Pub each week here at Easton. Three straight weeks in the 13-16 range for teams and it's starting to get really competitive. But you wouldn't know it by our answers! Two of my favorite questions and therefore two of my favorite sets of answers tonight. Firstly, you see what happens when people are stupid, as three people simultaneously suggest that hippos kill the most humans per year, so virtually every team follows along. Nope! You're all wrong!

chiropractic snake oil or something
Jules

I went to a chiropractor today. It was…weird. So, do chiropractors like....pop things…and then they get better? I’m confused how this works. It seems like some sort of scheme to me…since he wanted me to come back 3 times a week (45x3=too much money?). And now my neck is really sore. Not sure if I’m interested in pursuing something wherein someone hurts me and I pay them to. Oh wait…that sounds like another line of work too. Hm….. We were missing a few of our old favorites at Front Range this evening. Maybe the end of summer is coming and everyone is trying to get in a last minute vacation?
