Peyton Can't Dab
McFly

We talked about it. He can't dab for many reasons. Reason 1? The obvious one, HE'S TOO OLD. Duh. Second? His neck. You gotta lean in for those dabs. He has a bad neck, as well all know too well. He wouldn't last a minute trying to dab. Not to mention, I guarantee that Peyton doesn't know what dabbing is! He is out of the circuit. He is old news! Cam Newton is the dabbing king. Too bad this Superb Owl is not a dance competition of sorts, because Cam would easily sweep the first place prize. In football, you gotta throw the ball and catch the ball… or something. Not going to lie. I don't really care about the Super Bowl like I used to. Sure, it's a gathering of sorts and it

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well. You can find me at the 1up on Colfax periodically. I love playing GWD and being a Quiz Master.

HAPPY POST-QUIZ SNOW DAY!!!
Julia

HAPPY SNOW DAY, QUIZZERS! Little did we know last night the 12+ inches of snow looming in the near future! I don’t know about you folks, but I sincerely regret not getting a growler to go. That would have made today’s shoveling a lot more enjoyable! But anyway… let’s go back to the super awesome quiz last night, in which I got to talk about nipples and tumescence and flawless pecs. All in the same round! Last night, we learned: -Liz Phair will be touring

The one with Hercules Mulligan
Adelaide

Okay, so we're doing this.   As soon as I realized this week's quiz was lowkey Hamilton themed, my body was saying "hell, yes". Then I read the whole thing and my heart went "boom". Some men say that I'm intense or I'm insane (some even think me a polymath, a pain in the ass or a massive pain), but I listen to the OBCR or Hamilton like I'm running out of time. Every day I listen, like I'm running out of time. So last night, I summoned all the courage I required and dove right in.   It was another tight quiz, but even though they all started at the very same time, XBOX Pancake began to climb.

Heavy Cream
J.A.M.E.S.

Our Thursday night edition of the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Southtown 101 is still going strong in its second week as we had five teams come out to face questions on current events, ingredients, slash fiction, typos, and bad ideas.   It became a quiz “after dark” during Round 3 when I revealed that my porn name was “Heavy Cream” much to the disgust of My Mircopenis and the joy of *sigh* I Can't Read This Out Loud, It's The Most Disgusting Thing I've Ever Seen. The eroticism continued into Round 4 as I read fan fiction smut scenarios about people’s favorite TV shows, which might just be my favorite round

The Slopes
Charles

From the icy cliffs of Skyrim to the powder covered hills of Mt. Hood, I've been spending a lot of time in the snow lately.  I've been skiing since I could walk, holding a controller since I could grasp, it's about the two things that I do really well.  I mean, outside of hosting the best quiz in town (my own horn, beep beep).  Stayed up until three last night slaying dragons and draugr then got up at seven to slay Two Bowl and Jack's Woods.  I suppose I'm a bit worn out, but it was totally worth it.   This quiz, though.   Round One.  I didn’t even know that Mike Huckabee was trying to run for president again,

The One With The Awesome Team Names!
Russel

When you host pub quiz for any real length of time, you start to see certain names pop up a lot. We’re talking about SERIOUSLY overused team names and every time you see someone using one, they act like it’s the most clever thing in the world. Among the worst are My Couch Pulls Out But I Don’t, Trivia Newton John, I Wish This Microphone Was A Penis, and Tequila Mockingbird. The first time any of these names were used, they

The Horror
Sean "Not Jay-Z" Carter

I tossed and turned, clutching the sheets and covered in a cold sweat.  I awoke screaming, terrified by a nightmare I could no longer remember.  I went to the bathroom to wash my face, when an image flashed in my head, startling me.  It was Bea Arthur and Betty White, wrestling or… something.  It’s too hazy to recall clearly, but its effect on me has been profound. After inflicting upon everyone the audial horror that is my Minnesota accent last week, things got even worse this week.  Broncos Win The Super Bowl (to the Nationwide jingle like Peyton) demanded their team name be sung.  I did not sing it well.  Or properly.

Trying New Things is Fun!
Amanda

I was super excited to sub in for the snarky, witty Dustin at Schmizza Pub and Grub last night, but also a little nervous. How’s a girl to measure up? In the end I had no reason to be nervous, the teams and staff were fantastic. Also patient and kind. Especially when I had to reread Round 4 a third time due to incredulous, loud outburst of such things as, “What is this? Geek porn?” Some people just don’t get fanfiction I guess. It all worked out for the best, I mean, I did get to read, “He craved his hands. His flat circle,” three times so….

The R-U-E

Hello Iron Bear!   Tonight’s quiz had one of my very favorite rounds I’ve ever gotten to read in nearly 5 years as a Quizmaster. I’m talking about Round 4, The One Where Chandler and Joey Double-Team Ross. In the round, I read a line of fan-fic erotica featuring characters from a TV show, and you named the show. Aside from most people not knowing the shows Veep and Homeland, it went over huge. I think it’s a round topic we’ll see more of in the future, because there’s so much that can be done with it. Some examples:   Nervousness caused Ben’s pulse

A thick fog had settled on the city.  The weathermen said it would last all night and all day.  Through the thick grey mist team after team arrived at the Piper Pub.  The restaurant was filled up to the brim with patrons out for First Thursday.  The quizzers know the deal and shoulder roll into the tables as they empty.  At the beginning of the quiz, we had 1 team that had to start on their feet.  They were able to get a table be the time the first round ended.  Here are last night’s fun facts:   The unofficial theme of the evening was BONES.  The 3rd place prize was a cool Brontosaurus skeleton.  Many of the teams

Fourteen Hundred Watermelons
Quizmaster Jason

I only get to host at The Unicorn every once-in-a-blue-moon, but when I do, I always have the best time ever. I host every week at two other venues, one of which is just as busy as The Unicorn, and don’t get me wrong, I have a blast at both, but for some reason I don’t enjoy them quite as much as I enjoy a Unicorn quiz. There’s probably a few reasons for this. The first is that The Unicorn has a real, honest-to-god stage, which means I can see all of you, and all of you can see me. It feels like there is more of a connection between me and you. The second is that The Unicorn just seems to draw a more enthusiastic crowd… I’m not sure if that’s location,

He hasn't quite mastered talking about himself in the third person, as evidenced by his last sentence.

The End of Times
Jennuhlee

Sadness lingered in the air on my final night of Geeks who Drink at Odonald’s. But we all put on a brave face and went hard anyway. We had a few new teams this week, Filbert Turtles who had maybe the worst or the best answers, I haven’t yet decided. Palmer, our one man team started out very spontaneously and ended up working his way to 3rd place tieing with our old friends with a new name, Oats and Hoes. For the first time ever they actually took the lead for a couple of rounds. Oh

COWPER'S GLAND (Don't Google It)
Chris

I'm in a hole, fam. I am in a deep rabbit hole, retracing a bunch of old This American Life episodes. Back when I got an iPhone, the TAL app was the first one I ever actually paid money for. It was a comparatively astronomical $5 if I remember correctly, but the promise of every episode in once place, along with some Ira Glass odds and ends you couldn't get anywhere else just was too much of a pull. Sure, being way into This American Life is about as "Stuff White People Like" as it gets, but goddamnit even in the wake of thousands of podcasts, they're STILL the best there is at what they do. Digging back in via the nearly 600 episodes from their archive is a weirdly specific portal from

The Food Network Caucuses
Sweet T

(We had a round on the Food Network and a couple questions about the Iowa Caucuses, and this scenario popped into my head. Enjoy.) Well, it's almost midnight here in Iowa and with over 90 percent of precints reporting, I think we can declare some winners: What was supposed to be an easy, breezy coronation for the Barefoot Contessa turned into a nail-biting, last-minute win as Ina Garten took home 50.3% of the Dumplingcrat vote, while her only real challenger, Alton Brown, won 49.2 %, having grated away Garten's lead over the last few months like so much Parmigiano Reggiano. Supporters credit the Contessa's razor-thin triumph to her expert hand

I host the Geeks Who Drink quiz at Clouds Brewing in downtown Raleigh, NC every Monday night at 7 pm! I also scorekeep for mah boy Alex at Natty Greene's (also in Raleigh) every Tuesday night at 7:30! When I'm not doing one of those things, or working at my day job, I'm usually drunk, at home, playing Mass Effect or reading comics. "Geeks Who Drink" ain't just a job y'all, it's a way of life.

Thank You For Being A Fr-OHMYGOD! What Are You Doing?!
Darren

Looks like Uncle Ezra Ray is trying to make a comeback by forming a "supergroup" (And I use that word loosely), but what about other 90's bands that can fuse together? Like Smash Mouth, Third Eye Blind, or Barenaked Ladies? I'd pay to go see Smash Blind Ladies. Wait. No. That's not right.   *Yaawwwwwwn* Hey folks. Sorry, but I didn't really sleep that well last night. Every time I closed my eyes all I could see was Bea Arthur and Betty White and... ugh. Lets take our minds off of that and go over Thursday nights quiz! 5 teams came out to the good ole Clancy's for a quiz like no other. There was James Earl Ray ruining names.

Hail to the bartender
LukeDarby

This is what happens when there's a ton of music questions, and none about spurts. Your Friendly Bartenders finally placed, meaning that for once third place got a real prize instead of just a group hug. Congrats to Squirtle Squad, second place winners by default. First place goes to Shit Creek Boys, who managed perfect scores for the first five rounds.    For the rest of you, your prize is the mental image of David Schwimmer getting eiffel towered by Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.
