ZZ Top Gun: Because Every Girl's Crazy About Homoerotic Beach VolleyballJared
Tomorrow night, I'm seeing The Descendents. That has nothing to do with last night's pub quiz, but I'm pretty excited about it. Anyway, let's talk about the pub quiz.
We had eleven teams for Geeks Who Drink last night at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Most of you knew your current events, could pick out a song from a lullaby, and knew some of your periodic table. We struggled a bit with our lemonade and musicals, but had a really fun time with the before and after round. And then came Round 7. We do like a dirty round now and again, don't we? Some of the best wrong answers were Jawbreaker, The Fast and the Furious, The Italian Job, and A Low Down Dirty Shame. Oh yeah, and Round 8 (as always) was really fucking hard.
But we did have some winners, some newbies, some regulars, some tourists, and some great times! Taking Back Tuesday took 7th place, while the folks from We're Easy (squared) and A (squared) teamed up and took 6th. Book Hockey was 5th and Soleil were 4th. Have fun in Europe, Team Soleil! Third place were The Last of the Mojitos who wanted me to remind The Hunt for Red Octobeer that they beat them. Tiny Goofs spent the day on a brewery tour (as winners of the cumulative prize) and wound up in second place. That made first place (by nine points!) there for the taking by the Smarty Pints! Well done everyone!
See you next week at the BrewCo!
Jared is most definitely a geek who drinks. In addition to hosting a pub quiz, you're likely to find him in a mosh pit at a punk rock or thrash metal show. He collects records and comic books and types about himself in the 3rd person. His greatest trivia accomplishment is he once won a trip to London on a game show that he wasn't a contestant on. His greatest drinking achievement is the 30 Equis Challenge. He's smart, funny, and good looking. So, naturally, he's taken. By his wife of over 15 years. Play his quiz every Tuesday in HMB!
