Jonathan (Jon Julio Anejo)

My name is Jonathan and I hail from West Roxbury.  I came over from a competing pub quiz company in the Boston area that was started in this very same neighborhood.  If you can guess who they are, message me with the correct answer to win nothing. You know who else comes from here?  The actress who played Dagny in Atlas Shrugged Part I but not Atlas Shrugged Part II.  I bet you'd love to know more fun facts about West Roxbury.

I grew up in a Suburban town South of Boston which now includes a large retail outpost for a company in Sweden that makes furniture. After high school I spent the next 12 years in Philadelphia where I paid a large amount of money for a college degree which I do not currently use.  Over 40 grand to lose my Boston accent.  I also hacked out a living in my post-college career bumming around the "Swamps of Jersey".  These days I tend bar at a Restaurant in Boston for a living.  And yes Mom and Dad, it's a way of making a living

As far as quizmastering goes, I can be found both in Boston and in Cambridge.  I run the show at Battery Park on Monday nights at 7:00pm as well as at The Phoenix Landing in Central Square on Wednesday nights at 7:30.  Stop by and say hi!

Filling in at the Hong Kong is always fun, and I'm always grateful that Ryan lets me do it when he needs a night off. Staff is awesome, the crowd is awesome and they have some killer beers here. Some of those beers were mentioned in tonight's brew-heavy round 4 which was very well performed.

Tonight was dominated (plagued?) by Ebolacoaster Tycoon who nailed round after round, earning no less than 7 points in a single round and kind of sliding off in round 8 with a score of 8 but the damage was certainly done. Sneaking into 2nd place due to a team size violation by We Can't Win Anyway was the runner-up prize winning Happy Birthday Amanda. All was not lost for We Can't Win as a member of the that team won this week's email bonus. Nicely done! 

I stuck around after the quiz to watch a little playoff baseball and chatted with an O's fan about his teams chances against the red hot Royals. He seemed hopeful but not too enthused. I also appreciate when depravity is peppered into the quiz. Ebola, dead people and the unabomber were all fair game. As always, its been fun. Hope to pop in here sometime again soon!

Hey, can we have crowds like last night every week? Oh man you guys were awesome. And there were so many of you. Every time I looked up there was another team grabbing an answer packet. Sixteen teams in all. Must be because the calendar has turned to October. For weeks, my friends and I have labeled October as the most amazing epic month of the year. A month so full of rage and awesomeness that we’ll be talking about it for years to come. And I get to spend four nights of it with you guys! So far my October has involved congratulations drinks, boozy brunch, drinking with friends in the rain, house dance party, holy crap that was a long meeting drinks, and a surprise field trip for 25 of my friends to a brewery. And that was just the first week. This weekend I’m camping in a very remote part of Maine where I’ll be attempting an orienteering challenge that goes from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. If I’m not at the Hong Kong next week for quiz, it’s probably because I got eaten by a bear.

Of our 16 teams last night we had to have a winner, and this week it was Pumpkin Spice Ebola, who so cleverly described probably the one pumpkin-flavored item not currently being sold at Trader Joe’s. (Seriously, they now have pumpkin toaster pastries—i.e., Pop Tarts.) Following them by just two points were the med school students Name That Sphincter! who fortunately got the pleurisy question right. Other notables included Jesus Sandals who made it up to third in the standings (inching up every week), the Wyld Stallyns who bested everyone else in the final round (though that dud in round 2 set them back by a lot), Seventh Heaven Second Base who went there, The Horny Rhinoceri for best Star Trek jacket, and It’s # Not Hashtag who need some grammar lessons.

Thanks to everyone who came to the quiz. No seriously, thank you. When I am lost and alone and cold in the Maine wilderness, I will use the sense of duty to bring you the best pub quiz as motivation to survive. Have great weeks and see you all next time!

Oh the things I learn when preparing the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz for you. For instance, the origin of the name K-Y Jelly is unknown. Many have thought that it was because the product was invented in Kentucky, but actually it was invented in New York City in 1904 as a surgical lubricant. Later on, two versions were made, a sterile one and a non-sterile one. The sterile K-Y Jelly continued to be used in surgery while the non-sterile one was marketed for personal use. Did you know that K-Y Jelly was mixed with green glowstick fluid to create the Predator’s blood in the movie of the same name?

Also, did you know that a Massachusetts woman was the first woman to vote in the 13 Colonies, some 160 years before Women’s Suffrage? Lydia Taft’s husband died just before an important vote in the town of Uxbridge, Mass. to authorize funds for troops in the French-Indian War. Because her husband was one of the largest land owners in Uxbridge, the voters in Uxbridge got together and had a vote to allow Lydia to vote as a representative of her husband’s estate. The voters voted to allow her to vote in the voting for the war funds, making Lydia the first woman to vote in this country. And she voted to support the war, in case you were wondering.

I could keep going, but I’ll stop and tell you about the quiz. Maybe it had something to do with the weather, but we only had six teams come by last night. This made it easier for Wyld Stallyns to rack up their second win in a row, beating out The C U Next Tuesdays by two points. Worthy of note, the second round ended up with five of the six teams acing it and using their jokers to get the max 32 points. That was followed up by a proctology round where the high score was a four out of a possible eight.

Thanks to all who came and played the quiz last night. Hope you all had a great time and I look forward to seeing you all next week for another pub quiz.
