Geeks Who Drink helps events not stink.
Clowns are for kids. Deejays are corny and loud. And party games make guests feel awkward. The friendly competition of a Geeks Who Drink quiz breaks the ice, brings the laughs and makes any event unique and memorable.
Wedding rehearsals and showers, birthday parties and family reunions, corporate events and conferences, bar mitzvahs and funerals -- whatever event you are throwing, Geeks Who Drink can tailor a quiz suited to your needs. We've hosted events with as few as 15 guests and as many as 250. You give us your vision, and our expansive archive of questions fills your requests. And our rates are reasonable. No, really, they are.
Even if your guests aren't geeks who drink, our quizzes appeal to a broad audience. By the end, Grandma will know the joy of shoving the right answer in junior's face - "Gershwin!"
Here is what past clients have to say about our private event quizzes:
We have used Geeks Who Drink for several months now at our private club and have loved the quizmaster that they provide. The members look forward to seeing him each Trivia night and address him by name. They really make trivia not only fun, but also add their own personal touch to the trivia experience!

We brought in Geeks Who Drink to host a quiz at a companywide corporate event. The staff worked with us on the question selection beforehand – we even had a round of company trivia – and were very responsive to our questions and needs. We had nothing but positive comments from everyone who participated for both the trivia quiz event and our hosts – and it served as an excellent team building activity for our staff. Everyone is still talking about it around the office months later.
- Anna Giuliani
Geeks who Drink hosted our annual summer party; we had a great time! The Quizmaster was fun and entertaining and the questions weren't impossible, but just difficult enough that we had lots of spirited debate going on among our teams. We'll be doing it again next summer!"

I always get a little envious when I get to do a private event for a company that provides free beer to their employees. Why oh why couldn’t I have become a computer programmer and gotten some real skills instead of the completely useless and unmarketable law degree I got? Oh right, because I tried that during college and was kind of rubbish at it. I’m much better at asking trivia questions to you, the fine people of NuoDB, than I would be actually doing any of your jobs. Each according to our strengths, I suppose.
In the end, the battle for the top spot was waged between two teams who obviously thought their chances of walking away

Well hello new KaleidaCare friends! I sure had fun with you guys in our little private club house (I know it was a karaoke room, but it felt like our own little private quiz escape kinda right?). Three teams meant we were gonna have some fierce competition and you guys certainly brought your A-game.
We started off with a round for those that aren’t into the whole brevity thing. Don’t worry, I didn’t know what Ad lib was short for either. Then Round Two was a T-O-N of fun, and some of y’all proved you’re bigger badminton fans than you are Toni Braxton. That’s cool. But why not both?! Next up we had the controversial basketball round.

Hello my fellow HubSpotters! I was so honored to bring my side-hustle Quizmaster-ing to help entertain you on your team outing!
We settled comfortably into the basement of the Tasty Burger, surrounded by heaps of burgers and tots and shakes and beers, and quickly realized that my microphone was no match for the echoing of the concrete basement walls… So we kicked it to the curb and I went full-on fireside chat (which was much more intimately appropriate for our round on delightfully smutty TV fan-fic, wouldn't you agree? One of the answers inspired my blog title too, hehe.)
Our rounds also tested your knowledge on

...First of her Place, Mother of Bonus Rounds, Protector of the AV Equipment, Queen of the Handles and the Red Pens HEY! I’m Adrianne, a native Bostonian. I’m brand-new to hosting Quiz and super excited about it! I am a services consultant for a Cambridge-based marketing software company by day, and I love my job. I enjoy a lot of things that are nerdy and hyphenated: pop-culture, beer-fests, sci-fi, stand-up comedy, space-rock, drinking-and-knowing-things, wubba-lubba-dub-dub, et-cetera. My karaoke go-to jam is Heartbreaker by Pat Benetar. I’ll be running Quiz at Asgard in Cambridge on Thursdays at 9:00pm starting September 29th. Come out and play! P.S. I told you never trust a monkey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOs5AeGeu4Y
Last night brought us fame and excitement enough to make Michael Phelps jealous as nine teams from USA Swimming duked it out grey-matter style for six rounds for the USA Swimming Quiz Crown! For the award I'm imagining golden swimmies, although I doubt anyone in the crowd would need those.
Indeed, we had quite a squeaker with a four-point spread between the top three teams. First place was claimed by the brainy Something Creative (pictured), who apparently make up what they lack in creativity with knowledge and quick recall! They celebrated their win with a must-see-to-be-believed eight person first bump in the

Scott is a smarmy bastard that actually escaped from Florida. He uses Geeks who Drink to convince a bunch of strangers each week that he actually has some kind of knowledge about the world. It simply isn't so!
When I graduated high school, my family threw me a party in the backyard and used it as an excuse to day drink. When Ben graduated high school, his family threw him a party and made his dreams come true - with his very own Geeks Who Drink private event Quiz (yes my phone autocapitalizes the word Quiz but this isn't about my problems for once)
With his closest friends and family divided into teams, Ben proceeded to do what he does best, which is kick everyone's ass at Quiz. Of course, this was all an elusive coverup for the real reason we were all there that night...

I visited the beautiful offices of Discogs for their special celebration, as they were named one of the top companies to work for in the state of Oregon. I can see why! The office is bright and open, right on the MAX line, and has a DJ booth built in!
This DJ booth was made for cooler people than me and I had a little trouble patching my laptop into it so that we could all enjoy the musical stylings of Destiny's Child and No Doubt. Once we (and by we I mean not me) figured it out it was a loud fun happy sing-a-long with the members of A Whale's Vag punctuated by quiz questions and a lot of trash talking. The trash talking came with a healthy

I love metal, tattoos, appropriately placed commas, and science fiction. Semicolons are for suckers.
Thank you all for coming out for the May edition of Geeks Who Drink at Saint Arnold’s! Don’t forget guys, we do this every month on the third Friday. (You know, unless I say otherwise!) So that means the next pub quiz night is set for June 16th. Early, I know. The month starts on a Friday. No Thursday. I think?
Okay, next time you are here you MUST get a Bishop’s Barrel. On tap, in a bottle, whatever. They are fantastic, and the best beer you are going to taste. Seriously. If you see one at the store, grab two bottles of the same. Drink one. Save one, drink it in a year. See what happens. Especially the stouts. Especially.
Also grab a Raspberry

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.
Disclaimer: Roughly 70% of the above is true. The other 40%... total fabrication and folly.
Thank you for coming out last night, Standard! Because you live in an awesome apartment complex you got go get some free foods, and more importantly some free QUIZ thanks to your humble quizmaster, me.
Luckily I did have a spot of help - Ethan, the totally dependable, totally cool dude who lives in apartment 3206 (just a guess, sorry if thats your apartment). Give him a wave, or a shake of the hand or a cool-guy-nod when you see him in the hallway or at the pool. Since its the summer, he will be in the pool area under the umbrella, protecting that almost translucent skin of his. Just kidding Ethan, love you buddy.
On to quiz matters

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.
Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.
He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit.
Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.
