MUGGLES! Thank you all for showing up for yet another iteration of the Harry Potter theme quiz. We shattered some attendance records, I believe. Running at three different locations, hosting to hundreds to Potter fans, we gave out a lot of cash, we did a ton of day drinking, and didn’t once mention *his* name. (Don’t say it! Hear me! Never!) There were a healthy number of wizards running around, but a noticeable absence of any Dumbledores! What gives? Clearly nobody actually owns their own House Elf. Maybe they do. Do you? Does a dog friendly patio allow elfs? I don’t know. I’ll look into this for the next Harry Potter quiz. Promise! I’m sitting

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Disclaimer: Roughly 70% of the above is true. The other 40%... total fabrication and folly.

RIP Dear Pencil Sharpener
El Jefe

Shit just seems to hit the fan after a week off. I came in tonight with no box of materials awaiting my arrival. We looked upstairs, we looked downstairs, we called multiple people and just could not find the box! However, Ariel came to the rescue and dug it out of the deep recesses of the New Heights Grill.   No sooner had I set everything up, but Pretty Freakin Hard walked up to sharpen their pencil, and bam. The motor died. RIP dear pencil sharpener… you were a loyal friend and you will be missed. Sooooo… If you’re reading this and you or any of your friends have a spare pencil sharpener holla atcha boy!   Rounds

The Rio Ran Deep
Jim

So the Olympics are finally over. Thank God or something. I know I'm the only person in the world who hates the Olympics but they really wear on a person. Also, we can all agree Ryan Lochte is an asshole but some people are coming out and saying he's damaged the tourism industry. What a laugh. Do people really think that Rio is back to being entirely safe because Ryan Lochte lied? The crime rate is still atrocious and it's still dangerous. I'm still glad that they hosted it but I'm just saying people who were going to go there but changed their mind when Ryan Lochte said he got robbed are fools. Anyway, Thursday was a great night filled with lots of returning friends.

The Usual Suspects
Chris

Summer draws to a close, but do not worry, because here at Geeks the booze still flows. This week’s quiz was a good one, the questions, the quizzers, the humor, and of course the libations. It was all vets this night, so I knew the scores would be close, which they were. Those Hep Alien people brought the only newb, a newb that knew their shite, clearly! They took an early lead over Mentes Mini and scored the majority of their points in round 2, utilizing their joker to give them that little upmh that would propel them to the top. Although Mentes Mini

Halcyon. Hal-see-yawn. This place is the snazziest joint I've hosted quiz in yet (given, I haven't hosted many quizzes but still) and I am excited to go back next week. The coffee and cocktail bar side of a shared building with a restaurant, with freaking DOG BOWLS everywhere. That's right. There are dogs there. This place wins for the best spot to host a quiz for that gem.  I'm not going to lie to you, though, it's really hard to keep a straight face when across the bar you can see people eating their expensive dinners and you're talking about cocks and farting in jars on the PA. This place also wins for the best spot to host a quiz for that gem, too. Taylor

Paul Rudd drives a Weinermobile???

So guys I am back again with another late installment from my adventures on the James. It was another fun night, with plenty of laughs. Mostly at my attempts to read words from other languages, more on that later. So round one I told everyone you can count on me... to drink a beer and read the quiz tonight. Also I was giving some insight into our first round. A round that had a number for every answer, well s somewhere in the answer. It was pretty straight forward round. But after I read out the questions about forever 21, it took me back to a dark place. A place where I used to have to walk around that awful store with my wife. God it sucked, so glad we

Last night I had the pleasure of hosting the quiz at Quaff On/Big Woods Brewing Company in Bloomington, IN. QMIT Beth joined me to check out the venue and see what quiz looks like at other venues. I picked her up at her apartment, and we started the lovely journey down State Road 37 through the rolling hills and lush greenery. The air conditioning in the car kept us cool and comfortable. When we stepped out of the car around 8:00pm, the humidity slapped us in the face like the tongue of an enormous dog. I felt every pore in my body begin to silently weep, as my shirt gradually saturated. I couldn’t have been any moister if I had jumped in a pool. Competition was very

Wasted Words
PFS

I’ve never been a fan of the so-called “tongue twister”.  I like to talk, which may be apparent by the fact that I work in three jobs in which I do that the whole time, but talking through difficult words and phrases sucks.  Who the hell wants to do that?  Are there people who enjoy trying to say phrases like, “Peter Piper picked a peck…” or “Sally sells seashells by the seashore…”?  If there are, I hate them.  They’re terrible people for liking to be tortured by their own inabilities.  Or, I’m a terrible person for not wanting to be reminded of the fact that I

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

  We packed it in last night at Bonus Round, for sure! I love how we keep getting bigger and bigger---let’s try for 20 teams!! If we continuously have 20 teams or more, I get a scorekeeper!! And that makes everyone happy—especially my poor gnarled scorekeeping fingers. Anyhoo0—to the quiz!   We had a round on counting—and it’s just too bad the Count from Sesame Street wasn’t available for that hosting gig. Teams did great, all around. Our audio rounds had two songs that share a word between them. Apparently teams suck at naming songs. Just kidding—many a team received upwards of 13 points. Round three

Big Quiz, Bigger Scores
Justin Mazouat

Yes, for realz, next time the quiz at M Uptown will have to be a heck of a lot harder! Our first place team tonight was running perfect through the first six rounds, missing three points on our tricky video round and only two in the final round! That score is insane, but they still only won by three, while third place came up short, even though their score would normally be enough for first place! But super high scores also came with thirteen teams, which is the most since I took over at M Uptown a few months back! I'm going to pretend its because ya'll came to see ya boi (me, Justin). Don't ruin this for me. Good thoughts... Sorry to all

I am not a teacher, but I definitely do know my fair share of them. This week the vast majority of them went bak to work and my what a difference a week makes. I've seen them go from pleasant humans to still pleasant humans with a touch of tiredness. I am in constant awe of these people who give their lives up to educate other people's spawn (and probably mine in the future if I have spawn).   Let's raise a glass and a give a hearty cheer to these fine people. Because without them, I'm pretty sure we'd be doing something less fun than what we're doing now.   TEAMS! We had  a tie! Between Us and Them 2.0 and

Prodigal Coincidences? Or Why Didn't I Catch That Before?
Your Best Friend Rachel

School has definitely started back up. The sun is shining brighter. The ar smells clean. It's my favorite scent of the year... That sweet silence thanks to no children present during the day and young coeds out during the night smelling of sweatshop hipster perfume and Axe Body Spray. Unrelated: What has to happen to implement a curfew for 20 and under? I'm not talking bad... I'm talking what's the least serious thing to make that happen? JUST KIDDING YALL WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL. I only want that curfew enforceable when I'm trying to get a god damned drink at the bar. Smooches. Thanks so much for coming out last night and having a great time. You even brought your parents?

Welcome to my nightmare
Major Tom

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but I'm a pretty big karaoke fan. The problem is that I have a fairly low voice, and most of the rock singers in the karaoke books have very high voices. I don't listen to much music that isn't rock, and I skew toward hard rock, heavy metal, and punk. The karaoke guys usually don't have that much of that sort of thing. One artist I've had a lot of luck with is Alice Cooper. I've been a huge Alice Cooper fan since I was a kid. I remember seeing him host The Muppet Show. I always wanted to run into him around town, since I grew up in Phoenix, his home town. Just about everyone I went to high school with met him at random, but I still have not.

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.

In Which I Make You All My Prison Wives...

So, one week after This Team Goes To 11 went on to that great big scoreboard in the sky, there was a pitched battle between the scraps that remain.  In that battle, Toy Boat Toy Boat Toy Boat came out ahead, but That Team Get To Eleven rode to second place, fueled by their mockery of the former champions.  DJ Dead Dad came in third place, and sadly realized far too late that "third place" just means "top loser," and there are no prizes for that. Special points to team Woop Woop, who showed up late, gave up in discouragement after two

There's an opposite side to "Those who can't do, teach."

That opposite side is, "Those who can do so well that they ruin it for everybody else by making them feel like there's no point in playing."

That's the way I am with quiz games.  I always get accused of cheating, and I always win the free drinks.

So, my new calling in life is to shepherd your weak, jiggly brains into the harsh light of knowledge - to every week pit the strong against the week, strengthening the herd, and ultimately deciding who is only a little bit not-as-smart-as-I-am.
