The Competition is Getting Fierce
Natasha Noir

Well clearly seasonal standings are bringing people out. Public Brewhouse was once again stuffed to the rafters with teams eager to quiz! I love it.  Now did the teams know a whole lot about World War One... or Powers Booth... or Jehovah's Witness (or as I like to call them, much to the shigrin of my Mother, the J Dubs) rags. We can't all know everything so I say Meh, move on and come back for more next week. We are currently in the second week of our experimental seasonal standings and the mighty have fallen. Sorry Los Gatos Negros, you fell hard this week but you can make a come back, I have faith in all of my teams. For the week, we had Adam's

Let The Games Begin!
Natasha Noir

We have decided to try something new at ye olde Public Brewhouse, we're doing a whole seasonal standings kinda thing and so far we have some stiff competition... it's only week one but ya know I have to build the suspense! We have been super busy and keeping the pub packed tight which is nice, especially as Tucson continues to do whatever the fuck it wants weather wise, really, who needs any predictability around here? Not us! I think it comes down to there being beer, my teams sure know their craft breweries. Their windmills... not so much. But then again, how often is there beer in a windmill? So let's get down to business, we had some close calls last night

Apparently Eddie Vedder Is The Voice Of Hootie...
Natasha Noir

That was definitely the most interesting guess of the evening. I know I am in a minority on this but I can't stand Eddie's voice. So it's hard for me to believe that it can even be confused. It's so distinctly irritating and grating. Dear 1990s, don't disown me for that opinion. It is my own and I take full responsibility for it. Now on to other things. We are in the middle of some crazy weather here in Tucson. It was 104 degrees nice and early over the weekend and then boom! Monday brings cold weather and lots of rain... and allergies aplenty for us all (thanks for putting up with my congested, sniffly self last night quizzers. I'm sure it was unpleasant to the ear) and yet we still show

Air travel is the best.
Major Tom

So, your regular Quizmaster, Natasha, sometimes asks me to sub for her when she catches ebola or zika or syphillis or something. Last night was a bit different. Apparently her plane was hijacked in Los Angeles and the hijacker demanded millions of dollars and for the plane to be diverted to a non-extradition country. Or maybe her plane back to Tucson was just delayed thanks to bad weather in a lot of crappier parts of the country. It was one of those things, I think. Anyway, it was my pleasure to sub for her last night. I enjoy seeing a new bit of scenery and a new group of Quizzers here and there. You're not actually all that new of scenery though, since I've subbed for you guys before. Hey,

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Karaoke vs. Clever Musical
Natasha Noir

I was in shock to learn that somehow there was a team in my presence that would actually prefer to hear another round of terrible karaoke covers over a mostly entertaining and witty musical based on popular films.... I am surprised because last week when said karaoke round was happening, several teams were bargaining with offers of money and booze to keep me from playing the answer clips to avoid having to hear it once more. To each their own and my own says, no thanks! Ahhh well, taste is subjective but winning quiz is not, that is cold, hard numbers. Last night, team Pride Goeth In To A Wall took top standing leaving Flunkies behind by a mere four points.

A Send Off and Mercury Retrograde
Natasha Noir

You can joke all you like about astrology but damn if there isn't something to this Mercury in retrograde business. I mean really, I had to run back home for forgotten cords and then the sound system decided "not tonight!"... just saying, it's weird and my money is on everything being just fine next week, just like this never happened. Nice try on bringing the celebration down, but you can't! We still sent off one of our regulars with a bang. He is off to save the oceans (and your supply of oxygen, and the delicate eco systems) via an organization called Sea Shepherd and if you haven't heard of their amazing work out on the open ocean, you should look them up this minute and then send them

One person's chicken is another person's charity.
Major Tom

So, your regular Quizmaster, Natasha, usually asks me to sub for her when she catches ebola or zika or syphilis or something. Last night was a bit different. We had a Quiz For A Cause, or QFAC as they say in the business. This particular QFAC was for Tucson Village Farm. They wanted to raise money for a camp for kids. Apparently they operate a farm in the northern part of town. They gave out free seed packets last night. Well, Natasha is a vegan, which is totally crazy, because animals are absolutely delicious, and many of their products are pretty awesome too. I don't judge. If she's a vegan, that's her choice, and I respect it. We can never date, because I need to be able to grill steaks

Environmental Concerns and Cheese Steak...?
Natasha Noir

Yeah that's interesting. It's kind of a serious topic for a pub quiz, I can't really get in to how screwed up it is to have a round on climate issues and cheese steak without any mention of how the industry creating cheese steak ingredients are the largest contributors to said climate change. Sometimes quiz can be educational in a fun way, just sayin'.... Anyway, we had another fun evening at Public Brewhouse, another night with a lovely breeze to keep us cool and happy. Yeah, you should be jealous of our current weather in the Sonoran desert. After some back and forth on the score board we ended up with USA: #1 In Moon Landings in the

Women Are Always In Charge
Natasha Noir

The whole rest of the world should be jealous of the weather we are experiencing in Tucson right now, it is spectacular. Last night was full of cool breezes, cool brews and the scent of orange blossoms. A perfect night for quiz. In spite of the calm of the outside, we were getting boisterous in Public Brewhouse. Apparently identifying what bossy lady said what is quite difficult for some, I'm sure we all sound the same or something equally shitty. I was glad to see some familiar faces make their return and I'm always glad to see them. The score board was a roller coaster to the last minute when Tired of These Motherfucking Leggings on This Motherfucking

Why Are You Asking Me About Ballet?
Natasha Noir

We came, we saw, we definitely drank some beers and we quizzed. All in all it was a great night for some fresh blood to take the winning spots. Not because they knew more about oddly translated movie quotes, just because they knew slightly more than anyone else in the room and that is all that counts in the end. Congrats to our top team, " It's Not a Trick Mikhail, It's A Collusion!" you nabbed it fair and square. A hearty "good job" to our second place team Pepto Abysmal for springing up from 6th to 2nd place in the last moments of quiz. Yay for all and for all, a good quiz.

Amateur Movie Reviews.... WOW!
Natasha Noir

I know everyone has a voice in the online world but I do wish that more people would read the things they type back to themselves before hitting the "post" button. I mean it's cool if you want to make public record of your every dumb ass thought. Don't get me wrong, I will binge watch some Mean Tweets but let's just say that the calibur of these movie reviews leave something to be desired. But whatever, it's all in the spirit of quiz shenanigans! Of which we had plenty last night. It was another packed tight night at Public Brewhouse because we always come to party. It was a shocking finish to the evening when Los Gatos Negros

Sitting Is Overrated
Natasha Noir

We officially had the most people we have ever had at quiz last night. We thought last week was as many as we could squeeze in to Public Brewhouse but we were clearly wrong. The beer is good, quiz is a blast so how can you blame us? We dont' need no stinking seats!! But seriously, we really do.... yeah. Anyway, the battle was fierce... for second place that is. The Top Spot went to Hold Me Closer, Tiny Doughnuts who were defending their top spot from last week. That was cut and dry, they took first place and held on tight. Second place is a different story, we did a little dance but at ong last 69: Bad (or sick) In A Good Way

Building Capacity Is Just A Suggestion, Right?
Natasha Noir

Just sayin', the geeks of Public Brewhouse don't let little things like capacity get in the way of quizzing while drinking. It's just loose guidelines as far as we're concerned. The bar was absolutely packed to the gills last night and the score board was a pogo stick of motion. We broke in to song parodies and even did our best Swedish Chef impressions. It was a grand evening for all. Perhaps especially grand for Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza who swept the competition from score break one and took home top prize. Coming in second was This is The End. I had so much fun I believe I'll do it all over again

That Was Misleading...
Natasha Noir

When I saw "Abusing Your Organ" was the title for round two, I thought to myself that we were going to hear some good old raunchy songs but really they were just annoying for the most part... except Zombie, I don't care what anyone says; I love that song. But I digress, that wouldn't be the first time a title lead my brain down the wrong path. Maybe I'm just wired funny. Either way, we packed the bar yet again last night. We welcomed back our favorite bar keep, we missed you Kyle! We even got a little competitive, but quietly amongst the teams. I hear everything and people were out for blood! As you know, there can only be one.... winner that is. Last night the honor went to G.O.Pee

Quiz Is For Lovers
Natasha Noir

We had an amazing turnout for our pre Valentine's Day quiz! I feel very spoiled to have had so many Valentines come to see me. It was quite the night for quiz and everyone was in high spirits... probably from drinking all the things. Who can say no to a good Saison, locally brewed with love? Not me. We started off the night with a three way tie for first place but luckily by the end of the evening we had it all ironed out and didn't have to do any tie breakers. Coming in first place was E=MCD followed closely by No Please Not Again Stu. Lucky for my quizzers, I can't just hand out prizes for my favorite answers because if I could, it would

Hold On To Your Butts
Natasha Noir

Sometimes there is just something in the air and instead of quiz being fun but serious it turns in to a goofy kind of evening. The  moment I stepped in to Public Brewhouse last night, I knew we were in for that kind of a night. Thanks to round 7, we were even treated to some impromptu vocal performances. I love nights like that. Everyone is in a good mood and not getting too competitive. The top spot was filled by The Bowling Green Massacre from the first scoring break ad they held on tight through the evening. Second place had a little more dispute but ultimately Lady Gaga's Drone War beat out Rainbows and Unicorns
