Mark McGrath Left a Tip in Austin
Chels

What a fucking great night! I showed up tired, but I knew that it was just take me a little bit to snap out of that. And I totally did! The music was bumping last night, if I say so myself. Since I was playing the music, of course I loved it! But you guys were enjoying it too! I saw several people singing and dancing with me. It was amazing. I love those kinds of nights! After quiz a few people came up and said they had a great time and said that me and Anna are the best. We love hearing that shit! One guy said he drives all the way from way South Austin just to come to Tramps on Wednesdays to quiz with us. That's freaking awesome. You like me! You really

Quiz Mixer Success!
Chels

Wow! What a turnout for the quiz last night. We had 28 teams and several people that came to play with new people. They gave us their names and we put them with random people. Great success! Thanks for doing this with us. We'll most likely do another again, and maybe we'll get more people! Yay! We started off the night being kind of rowdy, but we all got into a nice rhythm. Our video round was awesome! I loved everyone's reaction to it! I can't too many details here because others might still be playing that video round. Anna was back! After being gone for like 3 weeks, she graced us with her wonderfulness yet again. Also, we are about to become roommates!

I Don't Play Pokemon Go!, I Get Laid
Chels

Hey everyone! We had a great time at Tramps! It was a Poke-stop for all you people who have traveled back to the 90s. Which isn't bad, I loved the 90s!  Tramps also had drink specials for the Poke people. They had red, blue, and yellow drinks. Kavi was my SK and right when she got there she got real excited about all that. She got a yellow drink, even though she's Blue team, but she liked it! She then had a blue one, and said it was better than the yellow. Which is what I hear. Then she had the red. They were all good! But she liked the blue the best. So remember that! Drinks! Why is yellow team so bad? People say it's the worst team. Did you

Where My Balls Grow, Where?
Chels

That title is in reference to a team that wrote that for the answer to "Besides The Taming of the Shrew, what 2 Shakespeare plays have titles that use the same word twice." I don't know if I would read that. I mean is it about balls? We all know that's not my thing.  Apparently my thing is quizzers buying me a shot when the sound gets a little funky, or I misread a question. That's hilarious. Bartender Laura made a shot for me and Patrick2. He was sub SKing for Anna while she's in a Belarussian prison. You know what they say, what happens in Belarus, stays in Belarus. Anywho, Laura made a Neopolitan shot.

2 Frowny Farmers
Chels

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about! And they are not Chinese. I hope that's not racist.  There are a few things that every Quizmaster has done in their QM career. Having to yell the quiz due to audio problems is one of them, dealing with an overly drunk heckler, and accidentally reading out an answer.  Now, I started blacking out the answers on my quiz print out so I won't read out an answer. Apparently that doesn't matter. I totally said an answer, in Round 1. So everyone got a free point! HAND! Someone asked for a repeat for that question, so I just said the answer was hand. After that I bought my dad and I a shot. He had been on the road for

#WeareOrlando
Chels

Wow, you guys. Just wow. I am so happy and so grateful for every one of you. We had a Quiz For A Cause to help the victims and families in Orlando, and you guys killed it. We raised $640 last night! That is really great! As a company we are having QFAC for this all over the country. They started Tuesday, and tonight is the last night for them. There are 2 venues partaking in Austin tonight. Check the Facebook page for more details on where to go if you want to donate more. They also have a Go Fund Me account where you can donate by credit card.  The last number I saw was over 10K that we have raised so far. It's so awesome! I'm glad I made it through without crying

I Wish I Had a Twin My Own Age
Chels

Our visual round was on twins. Also, one time, in college, I was watching Tru Confessions with my roommate, and she totally said those exact words in the title. I told her I would give her a minute to think about it. It took her almost a minute.  It's probably the best thing ever. Besides when my other college roommate thought in the song Tipsy, they were saying "everybody in the club get in Texas." So of course that's how we always sing it.  Anywho! We had a quiz! It was a big one too! (Phrasing) 27 teams showed up to hang at Tramps and play some quiz. You guys did pretty well on that Twins round. Nice! The audio round we changed up a bit.

Floating Like a Butterfly Forever
Chels

Hey everyone! We had a round on Muhammads, Alis, and that one dude, and when I went to read it, there was a still of Muhammad Ali on TV during the NBA Finals. Coincidence? I don't think so, I mean, he is the world's greatest. Just creepy! Anywho, that's really crazy that he died. I was in upstate NY this weekend, and I caught a bit of his funeral in Louisville. There were about 150,000 people there. Wow. I mean, wow. He was great. I have watched a couple documentaries about him lately. They are all done really well, and are inspirational. I recommend watching any doc on him you can find. We also had a whole quiz! It was about a week after the Disney quiz

The Happiest Quiz on Earth
AB Baby

Hello, Sister Suffragettes and Suffragette Allies! Well, the bar has been raised. In my time with Geeks Who Drink I have hosted, scored, or proctored literally hundreds of pub quizzes. Our Disney quiz last night was easily my favorite.With 89 total teams competing, Mister Tramps very quickly ran out of seating. But that didn't stop y'all. You just stood at the bar! No room at the bar? Spill out onto the patio! Patio full? We brought blankets, (who brings blankets?) we can sit on the grass picnic style. One team even set up camp on the hallway adjacent to the stage where the bathrooms are located. It was nothing but Disney fans as far as the eye could see! And it was a beautiful

That Nipple was Not Buttery
Chels

I ordered a beer, and apparently it came with a shot. A buttery nipple! For those of you who know me, which if you have been to quiz at Tramps more than once, you probably do, I usually just drink beer. It's delicious, I drink it slow, it's nice. Server Laura loves serving people shots. So if you utter one word about one, you're probably going to get one. she cray cray! We had another fantastic quiz last night! You guys were pretty rowdy. I like that! But only when I'm not talking. I want everyone to hear! I'm pretty nice about it though, and you guys quiet down for the most part during the questions. I really appreciate that! Also, we're at Tramps on quiz

I Was Going to Write a Blog....

But then I got high. Oooo, oooo, ooo. I was going to make it really long, but then I got high. Just kidding! I can totally blog while I'm high. That was just in reference to our awesome singalong last night. That song came on and it was over. Nice! And after the quiz QM Anna and I played the Cupid Shuffle so we could all dance. We were the only 2, then a team or 2 joined in, it was great. Be prepared, because we are doing that again next week. For sure! I got that idea from the bonus question about it, and a QM from awhile ago would play a song like that and everyone would dance after quiz. Dance parties are the best! I was on a corporate

Slammin Salmon is SLAMMING!
Chels

Heya gang! So on Wednesday Anna was getting hooked up! The lovely, lovely, bartenders were making her some really great drinks. One was called the Slammin Salmon. I tried and it wasn't to my liking as a cocktail, but I would definitely take it as a shot. Anna liked it too! We recommend it! She had some other green drink that she liked. I can't remember what it was. Something hippy or something. It was good times.  We had another fantastic time with you guys. I know you were missing Anna, I was too! QM Larue came out to play as well. That was a nice treat! There was a round on West Wing

Hey gang! I was so happy to be back quizzing with you guys and being at Tramps. I missed it! I missed it so much that I ended up staying and hanging out at the bar til about 1am, but I was safe. I was happy to have quizzed you on Round 1 in Seven, all the answers included the days of the week. You did really well on it! Then our audio round was Seven Letter Army, where the first letters of the title of the first seven songs spelled out the title of the last song. So you had to get the titles exactly right! We had a sooner or later round where you guys named the directors of movies. That was a good round! Our video round was really awesome too. I

In Which Not a Single Star Wars Reference Was Made.
AB Baby

We had an awful lot of fun at quiz last night. Or at least, I know I did! But for a May the Fourth quiz, it was decidedly lacking in questions on the subject of that galaxy far, far away...I have to tell y'all, I was super impressed earlier in the day when I walked out of my class and saw a guy dressed in full on Jedi gear. He didn't have the cape or the lightsaber, and since I had literally just finished listening to a presentation on J.R.R. Tolkien, my brain was primed for Lord of the Rings. But luckily I did a double-take, remembered what day it was, and gave him an enthusiastic high five. If I hadn't they would have revoked my Geek card, right? I mean surely they would have to. I'm

Hey yo. I'm RJ. The Urge. R-Jizzle. I'm a transplanted Austinite, originally hailing from Clarksville, Tennessee. I was educated at a school where it's perfectly acceptable to show your Peay-ness. I'm your typical sports fan. (Soccer being my sport of choice.) Cereal is my favorite food, simply because you can eat it at any time of the day. And it makes milk totally flavorful and drinkable.

I'm a total nut for pop culture...movies, music, books. I try to take as much of it in as possible, regardless of how it eats into my daily responsibilities. I'm still a video game nerd, although there isn't a lot of time for it nowadays. I'm a shameless fan of reality television and I once made it through the first two cuts of casting for The Real World. But, alas, I wasn't emotionally challenged enough to make it all of the way.

Professional wrestling is still real to me.
