Hi Everyone,

This is Snarky Shark. I'm the current host of the GeeksWhoDrink Pubquiz over at the Lunchbox Laboratory in South Lake Union and The Blarney Stone on Pike.

As for me, I'm pretty much a Seattlite. Sure, I've lived all over the Western United States, but I definitely call this place my home. 

Personally, I dig science questions. Why? Well, in real life <le sigh> I'm a graduate student in the Department of Biochemistry in the University of Washington. Though, I can't say I've ever made a Kool-Aid cocktail as is the case with the Lunchbox Lab.

I really enjoy the regular players, with their funny quirks. As well as the hopeful glean in the eyes of the newbies who think they can win. (How quickly those hopes are shattered...)

Need a ringer for Chemistry? Biochemistry? Weird Geological Distributions of Heavy Metals? (Music and otherwise?) I can help with that. However, if you're on the other side of the quiz...I can't help you. But you're going to need it.

See you then.

July 28th, 2014 - The Blarney Stone

Tonight, between 3 teams, I got a chance to really check under the hood and see what makes these teams tick. 

Turns out it's mostly paper clips and squirrels, but that seems to do a fair job.

The vast majority of their knowledge can be attributed to:
Round 1: Duh! Obvious answers to obvious questions.

Though not everyone did as well as they might have thought. Most likely due to the rumors surrounding Margaret Thatcher, but I digress...

&

Round 5: Visual Round Cartoon versions of Musicians.

Let us not forget the MC Hammer cartoon.
What gives me pause in regards to the breadth of their knowledge is the gaps on:

Round 3: Try to remain Objective: Ayn Rand or Kanye West?

Guess if the quote was attributed to Ayn Rand or Kanye West. To be honest, if you didn't know enough about both of them, this could be difficult.

&

Random Knowledge

I guess we could file the Ayn rand and Kanye West bit under this as well.
Ok, so how do these teams manage to do so well on regular trivia nights? Well, Don't have a FRAU, Man! takes some serious notes. They don't even talk. Just furious scribbles. Look to the blog, they take some serious notes! Deep Fried Chow Mein seems to draw from some etheral realm of random knowledge. and Captain Underpants? They seem to rely heavily on their canine companion.


Still, as much as I was able to learn, questions remain.
Will Captain Underpants remain at the bottom? Will Deep Fried Chow Mein do as well in filling theballot box next time? and just what happens if you do have a FRAU?!

Find out. Next week!

At The Blarney Stone!

Ok, ok, perhaps there were one or two complaints. Most concerning the lack of "Pornstache" ofOrange is the New Black fame in tonight's visual round. Clearly it would have been thematic, but then again, you all would have got it right. That's hardly fair is it?

Not that I care.


Tonight had a few impromptu teams, with that "Let's give it a shot" attitude.


They definitely walked into the right place with:

Round 2: That never happened to me before.

Songs with sexual dysfunction innuendo.

Did you hear about the night club named erectile dysfunction.

It was a huge flop. Nobody came.


On that note, they also did very well with Round 5 Visual round on Mustachioed gentlemen.

Despite their complaints.

However, they should have kept their wits about them on...

Round 3: Huh, Huh, "Winter's Bone"A Timed round on Jennifer Lawrence Movies.

&

Round 4: That's So Fetch - A round on mean girls and dog training.

All in all a good game. Props to team #Butts for not only throwing and unmistakeable gang-sign, butalso putting down the boast of team Happy Birthday Snarky Shark for first place victory. Got to keep the local champs on their toes.
As a side note: Ray receives ALL THE BLAME for their loss.
Will Emotional Tampon manage to keep it together? Will You Betcha break their "Yes, man" behaviour? and will the return of Kim bring with it, a name?
Find out. Next week!

At The Blarney Stone.

The Free Bonus Questions Pint is always an interesting time. The locals will tend to frenzy to secure their spot up front, whereas newcomers are left bewildered. What makes it more interesting is when they have the smugness to pre-load an answer to what they think the question will be. In tonight's mystery round, each answer was the name of a Nick Cage film. Which you would figure out if you managed to answer a few of the questions.

As a result, most of the players sauntered up to the stand, writing down "Nick Cage" in mid-stride. But no. That wasn't the question. What is his last name, as part of a famous Italian family?

Coppola.

They didn't have that one. In their shock, they furiously tried to find the pencil they put down, the answer-sheet already at arms length, but alas only one could win.

Better luck next time.

However, as enjoyable as it is, that is only 1 part of the quiz. The Rest?
They'll get a 99% on Rotten Tomatoes for...

Round 4: Carmen ain't here, man.

Name the female video-game character in league with Carmen Sandiego.

&

Round 6: This round is not Gluten-Free.

A round on bread.

But they won't even reach cult-status with how bad they did on...

Audio Round 7: Podcash!

Name the podcast/radio show or it's host doing some ad-time.

&

RANDOM KNOWLEDGE

At the end of the night, sparks flew as two rivalries clashed once more! In one corner, fierce competitors Happy Birthday Snarky Shark! In the other corner, long-time FRAU Loves Snarky Shark's Naked Pecs!

I get a shout-out in both cases. No matter how uncomfortable that may be.

HBSS shrugged the traditional Dance-Off in lieu of a sudden death quiz round. Following up on the suggestion of Team Deep Fried Chow Mein, I might just add a drinking challenge to the next tie breaker.

But I digress, I rattled off 5 intense questions to for both teams. As I tallied up the score, running through them one question at a time, I was certain we'd be in for another round.

But what is this?!

On the last of five questions, we had a winner!

Producer of CSI is Jerry Bruckheimer!

and the winner? FRAU!

Will Hot & Bothered be satisfied with not getting last place? Will Puss in Suits continue to be so catty?and dare I ask, just how far is Super Balls Deep?
Find out. Next week! 

At the Blarney Stone!
