Old, Drunk, And Stupid Is No Way To Go Through Life
Cody H.

It finally happened, folks; we had our first honest-to-goodness hecklers last night. A group of sad, mishapen baby boomers who looked like a collection of what you might sweep off the floor of any random suburban bottle-only bar didn't have anything better to do in the mess that is their lives then try and ruin everyone's good time at 8:30 on a Wednesday night. They were loud! They were drunk! They were stupid and had shitty jokes! They're going to die of lung cancer in ten years, and the world will be better for it. Thankfully, you guys did the right thing; ignored them until you couldn't, yelled at them to shut the fuck up, and got management to shut them down. I couldn't give two halves

The Singing Will Continue Until Morale Improves
Cody H.

Musicals are great, guys! I yearn for the day where we can express all of our emotions, thoughts, and plot points through choreographed dance routines and okay-to-stellar lyrics. Alas, not everyone shares my enthusiasm and it showed last night. In case you didn't pick up on it throughout the quiz, every round title and a few questions in Round 8 were titles of songs from Les Miserables (Le Miz if you're a weirdo). Not only that, we had a round composed entirely of celebrities trying their darndest to do a good sing in a musical. And they weren't all just Russell Crowe!    Here's what we learned this week: how much Vitamin A there is in bok choy; what I had

Pointsapalooza 2k16!
Cody H.

Folks, most weeks we only get two rounds that are worth sixteen points. If we're lucky, and our writing staff feels like it, either Round 3 or 7 also gets the double-points treatment. This week? This week we got it all! Fully half of our rounds tonight were worth double their usual value, but with added points came added difficulty. From remembering when things happened in Round 2, to figuring out how to make pesto in Round 3, to fighting the PA system in Round 7, to the general difficulty of truly random knowledge in Round 8, you had a chance to get up to 112 points toinght. Only one team came close to fufilling their potential, but with a couple of regular teams out the field was wide

Abandon Ship!
Cody H.

Folks, there sure is something strange going on in the weather recently. As a lifelong Houstonian, I'm no stranger to sudden changes in both temperature and precipitation, but you don't get a sudden flash downpour like last night's all that often. Much less five minutes before quiz is supposed to begin, forcing management to (wisely) shut down the patio and force us inside. In that mad scramble to get under a roof, we lost some supplies to the rain, and I had a brief scare where my laptop's keyboard wouldn't respond after opening it back up. Luckily, 15 minutes and a hard reboot later we were back in business! Of course, the rain stopped right as we started Round 1.    If

Night Of Too Many Ties
Cody H.

Ties, folks! We had a shit-ton of ties last night, all night. After three rounds we had four seperate ties of 3 teams or more, but that narrowed down to only three multi-team teams after six. Going into Round 8, our top 6 teams were seperated by a grand total of three points. However, as usual, Round 8 proved to be the difference maker, with two collapses by leading teams and one stunning resurgence providing the necessary drama that gave us not just a tie for First, but a tie for Third as well! We'll get to the aftermath later, but I have to say that last night was probably the most competitive game we've played in a while. Good job, everyone!   Anyways, hello!

My Poor, Fragile Ego
Cody H.

Folks, as you all are no doubt aware, we're not the only people at Little Woodrow's on Wednesday nights. Some folks wanna come out and catch the Astros sweeping the Cards, some folks are here for birthday parties, and some folks are just here to drink. Bewildered as they are when I start talking over the PA, they're generally good enough sports to keep to down so that y'all can hear and generally keep to themselves. That was not the case last night! Some random middle aged lady, who apparently drank a few too many Michelob Ultras (living the high life, this one!), wandered up to my table right as we were beginning Round 6 to explictly tell me that, and this is a direct quote, I am

Yelling Forever Into The Void
Cody H.

Folks, I don't know if you noticed but it can get pretty crowded out on the greatest patio in Midtown. You gotta show up early for the best spots, especially when we have both Game 3 of the NBA Finals and the 'Stros trying to not lose to the godforsaken Rangers for the thirteenth time in a row. Luckily that didn't come to pass, but we did end up with a large crowd last night (thank god), but we were without the services of a scorekeeper, thanks to Kevin leaving forever without telling anyone. Thanks bud! So we finished late, but like it really mattered. Also, more cute dogs.   Here's hwat we learned this week: I am so tired; how to make an interrobang; what

Crisis Management and Dick Jokes
Chris

Due to Houston deciding it hadn't had enough rain recently, Cody was unable to make it out of his neighborhood, so I took over duties for one night only (what do you mean, ''good!''?!). I know we all wish him well and hope that the flooding doesn't inconvenience anyone any further.   After one or two technical issues to start the night (completely my fault, being a noob and a bit of a friggin' imbecile), the quiz got going and everyone was in high spirits. Without any prompting from me, Dick Jokes became the team name theme for the evening. Whether this is just a thing at Little Woodrow's Midtown or not, I don't know, but it made my job a lot more fun. This was

A Non-Standard Lack Of Standards
Cody H.

Folks, last night's quiz introduced some fun and more-challenging-than-usual round structures. From the hilarity of John Oliver being filtered through my slightly-annoying voice, to people covering Bob Dylan's best song in honor of his birthday, to identifying famous movie musical numbers and the lead actors/actresses in said films. Do you even know who Tom Everett Scott is? I didn't, and That Thing You Do! is a movie I watch at least once a year. Also a shocker, people can't identify Whitney Houston's voice anymore. We even had a round about things you might find at your local mini-golf course, such

It's Only Stupid If It Doesn't Work
Cody H.

Folks, unlike many of the other fine Quizmasters you may find at any of your local Houston Geeks Who Drink venues, I am a fan of the professional sports. My childhood was going to Astros games way in the upper deck of the Dome, and once the Texans brought football back to town when I was twelve I started following them too. As such, I like to watch sports on TV, because I can't be at the ballpark as much as I would like to. As such, I get into the game and yell shit at the screen as well as following various superstitions. However, in the back of my mind, like a rational adult, I know the little men on the TV can't hear me yell at them. Case in point: last night during quiz the Astros were

That's How It Works
Cody H.

Good evening, folks! Hope you're having a wonderful...Thursday? Today is Thursday. Last night was Wednesday, and that meant we had quiz on the greatest patio in Midtown at your friendly local Little Woodrow's. Last night's round theming was a smidge strange, even for us. Seven songs that spell out another song? A round that has nothing to do with Dr. Seuss? The vidya games? A challenging night for sure, but with a surplus of points thanks to a 16-point Round 3 on famous directors that would have killed at my other venue. Just remember, no matter how strange or confusing the description of a round is, just get the question right. Listen to it, use context clues if you need to,

Dying At A Normal Rate
Cody H.

Good evening, true believers! We were graced yet again with both good weather and our new Scorekeeper Kevin, as well as a constant cough that's been plaguing me all week. Is this the third week in a row I'm complaining about how bad my throat hurts? Of course it is! I had a 102 degree fever that broke in the middle of quiz last week, and since then I've been dealing with the corpse of said cold slowly, slowly, SLOWLY leaving my body. As such, stuffy noses and lingering coughs are the order of the day. Good news, I probably DON'T have tuberculosis! I won't say I'm not dying, because we are all slowly dying, but at least I'm not accelerating down that path anymore.   Anyway,

Cough Cough Cough
Cody H.

If you didn't already realize from my frequent coughs into the microphone and general fatigue last night, I'm getting over a cold; y'all ain't getting a good recap. New scorekeeper is here! His name is Kevin, so there's that.   Here's what we learned this week: Not a dang thing, as it turns out. At least we were back on the patio this week, and we got to watch Jose Altuve sock a dinger and this disastrous Rockets season finally come to a close. We also learned why Prince Fielder is called that, who never won gold in the Olympics, and how many #1 hits Prince had. A varied night of quiz, to be sure.   Our top two teams were great,

Oh God My Throat
Cody H.

Baseball is back, everybody! Like some of you, I got the chance to attend the home opener for YOUR Houston Astros on Monday. It was the first time I'd ever been to an Opening Day, and even though I sat in one of the few seats that is literally behind a pillar, I had a grand old time. Tyler White just gets hits, Collin McHugh recovered from his disastrous first start, and we saw some Colby Jack. Everything was good! Unfortunately, I yelled my fucking guts out for the hometown nine, and come quiz night I could just barely pass as a QM on the mike. My upper register was basically gone, and it didn't help that for some reason the patio speakers cut out halfway through.

Savor The Weather
Cody H.

Good evening, everyone! We were finally back out on the patio last night, enjoying the absolutely beautiful weather that I will be dreaming about come June. Mid-seventies, a nice calm breeze, no humidity? Heaven. Apparently a lot of you agreed apparently, as we had a surge of new teams contributing to our 27-strong team count. We even got to sing Happy Birthday to someone who had the misfortune to celebrate it at Little Woodrow's on Quiz night. I was also without the services of a scorekeeper, and I think the fact that we only finished 30 minutes late should be considered a heroic accomplishment.   Here's what we learned this week: how to pronounce Roald Dahl's name; what

Three Simple Steps To Smart Joker Use
Cody H.

Folks, as you all know, during the quiz you can circle the little clown head on your answer sheet and double your points for a particular round. It's a fun bit of strategy that helps differentiate us between all the other shitty trivia companies you might have played with, and its use is often the difference between success and not-success. It's why I always tell you how many people have used their Joker so far, and how many 16-point rounds we have left. Amidst some murmuring I heard from people going out the door last night, here's an easy guide to help you decide when to use it. 1. If you score at least double digits in a sixteen point round (Rounds 2 and 8 are always 16 points),
