Can you believe that next month is our one year anniversary for Geeks Who Drink at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company? One of the reasons I ask is I'm starting to get recognized around town. A couple people from Taking Back Tuesday recognized me while I was drunk at a local Karaoke bar. And I shot the shit with Mark from Big MK at the local grocery store this week. Although in addition to being recognized, I'm also recognizing you guys, so maybe it just means I'm making friends. And I'm pretty sure that's what this is all about. Well, that and drinking and asking/answering questions. Anyway, on the the quiz!
We had a fun quiz this week. I learned about reindeer in round 1, songs that I would pee on in round 2, and a nice 50/50 more or less round for round 3. Round 4 was a fun one with some word play, round 5 featured Kanye as the son of God, which is how I'm sure he sees himself, and Round 6 was finally an excuse to play MDC's Chicken Squawk. Round 7 was some difficult TV clips/geography, and Round 8 was just plain difficult.
We had 15 teams this week, and competition was pretty tough. Some of our regular winners didn't quite win, such as Ancient Mariners and MENSA Rejects taking 8th and 7th. Big MK took 6th, and newcomers with a great name Ultimate World Domination of the World came back toward the end to come in 5th. Looking For a Good Duck but Only Caught Crabs, a couple guys who play regularly in Utah and just happened to be in the bar last night, took 4th. 3rd went to Taming of the Brew and 2nd went to the Smarty Pints. And by one point, Book Hockey took first place!
Next week is our last quiz before whatever holidays most people celebrate. Just remember, cumulative points are lost if your entire team isn't there. So tell your family you'll visit them from Wednesday until Monday, and I'll see you Tuesdays for quiz!
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!
