I am on a quiz marathon, and last night was my third night in a different venue (in fact a whole new town). Rode into Boulder, and I will admit it- I expected Boulder’s brand of peace and love. But then the “mountain grass” band and the hippy droves changed it all.
Honestly, things got so crazy at George’s last night that I thought I might be suffering from a contact high. Oh it was fun, don’t get me wrong. But when you are attached to The Boulder Theater which was filled to capacity with patchouli and dirty dreadlocks, and a cloud of smoke emits from the restroom that we will just assume was produced by legally purchased substances acquired with a red card…well things get interesting.
The regular geeks persevered. They shouted down the noisy revelers and used a few of their favorite four letter words to get us through Round 1’s four-letter names. Scores were high on the audio round and although I found most of Round 2’s music cringe worthy, it started the game with lofty expectations. The teams called for a pause during Round 4 on ladies wielding guns when the security at George’s wielding an unruly concert goer came barreling through the bar. Round5-Sherlock didn’t have shit on Dearly Departed Dickwads, Chicks vs Dicks and Just a Bunch of Laserjocks- who all obtained perfect 8’s.
Round 6 found us all quietly protesting the group singing Happy Birthday to Bob in the bar… and we wrapped up the night with some old dead guys and a bunch of random knowledge.
1st place went to Just a bunch of Laserjocks and 2nd went to Dicks vs Chicks.
And to the guy who was sitting in the middle of the quiz room, who looked around after Round 2 and said, “Dude, what’s going on over here?” Awesomeness Dude, Awesomeness is going on over here. You might want to move out of the way and let us do work.
