Does Thor Sit Around Asgard Listening to MC Hammer?

Jared

So I woke up this morning to see pictures of the patio area at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company destroyed by a drunk driver.  Fortunately, it happened after close, nobody was hurt, the driver was arrested, and everything will probably be back to normal by next week.  Still, kind of scary.  Other than that, it was a pretty mellow week, but as a person who is heavily involved in Rocky Horror, and seeing as how October is right around the corner, my life is about to get crazy.  My priorities for the next month or so involve 1. Not falling asleep at the wheel.  2.  Getting up on time for the day job.  3.  Having as much fun as possible.  I think I can do it!

Fun quiz this week.  Difficult round 1 with the two definitions, but a hilarious round 2 that one team even aced!  Round 3 was tough for most of you, because who the hell knows which old person says anything.  Round 4 was easy if you knew Greek mythology (especially since we're already in the west), and Round 5 was easy if you were alive in the 90's.  The troll round was brilliant, the Carpool Karaoke round was easier than most round 7's, and Round 8 as always was Round 8.  Some pretty decent scores for a regualr 96 point quiz, so good job quizzers!

We had some new teams, we had some regulars, and we had one birthday party team with seven people appropriately named We Can't Win.  They were right, they came in 5th.  Book Hockey came in 4th place, and we had a tie for 2nd with Big MAK and The Bar Flies.  Although apparently the guy from the Bar Flies used to go to Geeks Who Drink back in Chicago, so this really wasn't his first quiz.  And that left first place open for our regulars and regular winners, The Unbearable Lightness of Peeing!

So yeah, fun night, good times, great beer, interesting questions, and me.  See you every Tuesday at 7!

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!
