Don't Do It
Cody H.

Folks, I tell you every week that you can't play with more than six people on a team. I don't care if you say your extra friend isn't actually playing, or if they showed up late, or whatever excuse you may have. Perception is reality; if you've got more than six people at your table, I and the other quizzers will perceive that you're playing with more than six. This is why I always ask that you write "+6" on your answer sheet so I know who you are, and the prizes for the top three teams can go to those who are eligible. You can win everything else, except for those special gift cards. Which is why when Crop Circle Cock-us took Third this week even after being told

Man, It's So Loud In Here
Cody H.

Good evening everyone! We got to quiz inside last night due to it actually being "cold" cold and not "Houston" cold out on the patio, so we got both shelter from the wind and better access to the bar. In my case, I also got the ability to get up from the Quizmaster's table without performing a death-defying feat, so that's always a bonus. I also like that when we're inside, I feel like I get a better coverage with both my voice and my music, and we don't have to worry about being too loud due to our neighbors next door. All the better to hear all of the Less Than Jake and They Might Be Giants on my playlist!   http://www.tinyurl.com/gwdvintage   Anyways,

Every Day Should Be Taco Tuesday
Cody H.

I don't if you guys have been following the Sean Penn/El Chapo story, but damned if it doesn't get better basically every day. We're not even twenty days into 2016 and it already feels like we've got the story of the year! The latest tidbit is that the final tip to Mexican authorities of his location was a suspiciously large order of tacos, picked up in the dead of night, that led right to him. That tickled my ivories just the right amount to make it the team name theme of the week. Predictably, I can't trust you guys for a minute as half of you went straight to vagina jokes. Oh well, at least I didn't have to read them out loud.   Sorry, Stephanie!   Anyway,

Livin' In The Fridge
Cody H.

60 degrees may not sound that cold to those of you from up north, but here in Houston dipping below that is cause for concern and alarm. We bundled up in our finest winter coats and staked out the perfect spot next to a heat lamp last night, as we braved the "cold" weather on the patio to both play quiz and keep ice from forming in our veins.    Here's what we learned this week: it's only game, why you heff to be mad?; you can make relish out of plenty of different things; the exact term for water that is salty, but not too salty; how lazy some of your favorite(?) music artists are; who exactly

I Can Be Your Long Lost Pal
Cody H.

As you probably know, every week I like to give the winning team a chance to put an exclamation point on their victory by giving them their choice of song to be played as we close up shop. I've been doing this both here since I took over back in October, but for some reason people still don't always put a song down. You never know what will happen in Round 8, people; always have a song! Even my regulars fall prey to this gap in memory, and as such I have to pick a song for them. Somehow, I've decided on Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al as that song. Why? Probably a combination of the horns section, Paul Simon's

Wonderful Christmastime Is The Better Beatles' Christmas Song, Fight Me
Cody H.

"Wonderful Christmastime", I feel, gets a bad rap. Sure, it's a disjointed mess of weird instrumentals and an insincere message, a song about Paul McCartney hanging out with his famous friends, but atleast it's not a tuneless dirge to anti-war efforts like John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)". NOT SO EASY, IS IT JOHN. Coincidentally, both of these songs were featured in our audio round of shitty Christmas covers; one parody ranted about how much he hated the song, and the other featured a grown-ass man saying the words "epic fail" out loud in the year of our Lord 2015. So really, which one is worse? Goddamn internet.   Anyway, hello! Thank you so much for joining us

So Many Things To Watch, So Little Time
Cody H.

Good evening, everyone! Quiz went swimmingly last night, even if it was more of a stopover until the premiere of The Force Awakens tonight; I've got tickets to see it at midnight and I don't even care that I have to be at work at 7 the next day! Anyhoo, this week more than ever we had questions that centered around media and pop culture, which is weird to me for some reason I can't start to explain. A round on Christian song covers, prestige TV, and movies with funny titles is more than you usually see; and that's not even covering the visual round, which was all about bad cops in film and television. Sure, Round 6 was a patented GWD Vaguely Related Things round, and we had Random Knowledge

Has Anyone On This Patio Even Seen An Eagle?
Cody H.

Last night's team name theme was "Eagles", in honor of the greatest metaphor we're going to get this election cycle. Going down the list we saw not only references to a shitty dad-rock band but also to the supposed sound eagles make. This was a mistake of Bluthian proportions, as eagles do not go "caw". Eagles, according to All About Birds: "For such

The One Time I Don't Save.
Cody H.

Guess who lost his already-written blog post! That's right, it's me. We had a good quiz last night, being moved inside due to the weather (which was cold for Houston), and honestly I kind of prefer it. At least I don't have to perform death-defying stunts to get out of the booth if I'm sitting at a long table, and I'm right next to the shuffleboard table if I need to challenge anyone to a game.   Anyway, hi! 20 teams tonight, and for the first time ever we had a one-man team take home First place in the form of In Philadelphia, It's Worth $50, which is a reference I still don't get. The Brunch Club took home Second place

Fun With Meningitis
Cody H.

Hello, people! Sorry for the late blog post, but sometimes life gets in the way. And by life, I mean that our blogging system basically exploded. But we're back, and I'm writing this recap, and life will go on. In other news, the sore throat I had on Wednesday has developed into severe neck stiffness, mucus, numbness, and coughing as of this writing; so, hopefully, I will not be dead by this Wednesday. Quizzers gotta quiz, even on Thanksgiving.   Anyway, here's what we learned this week: Louisville sluggers date back to the 19th century; OITNB character have weird names; basically everyone knows at least five Taylor Swift songs; GWD can get super specific

Fast Food Gimmick Items Are My Downfall
Cody H.

As I'm sure you've all notice, I'm what you could call a "man of size", AKA fat. One of the root causes of this is my love of fast food gimmicks items, such as your Hot Dog Pizzas, your McRibs, your burgers with grilled cheeses as the buns, what have you. Tonight, we had a round that consisted entirely of possible fast food items, and damned if I haven't eaten every one of the real ones. The Red Velvet McFlurry does look like something a Dracula would eat, and the less said about the Waffle Taco the better. Never got the green poops from the Halloween Whopper, so I guess the disaster that is my gut flora beat out whatever it was in the burger.    Anyway,

It's November, Throw Your Razors Away
Cody H.

We're nearly over with 2015, but fresh off the heels of HERO not passing due to a combination of poor turnout and bigotry we had a night at quiz that celebrated that manliest of events, No-Shave November (or Movember if you hate pronouncing things). Unfortunately I can't participate this year because I have to look presentable for job interviews, but I'm sure one of you will, by the end of the month, have a beard worthy of fear and respect. At least you don't have to pay for razors this month!   Anyway, hello! Excellent night of quiz at 21 teams joined us on the greatest patio in Midtown to inhale smoke and play quiz. Here's what we learned this week: calaveras are shaped

An Abundance Of Smoke and Semi-Colons
Cody H.

Ugh, I got nothin' this week guys. I'm semi-allergic to smoke, and while I can deal with the smoke from the grill on Steak Night, for some reason we had at least three cigars lit up on the patio; as a result, my nose has been constantly running, my throat is raw as hell, and I've been swilling green tea like no tomorrow. Smoking is bad, guys. Also, I discovered the secret nob on my mixer that allows me to bump up the audio to much louder than it should be, but sometimes it's necessary; for instance, last night's Round 7 on Thug Notes had audio that was, while funny, barely audible thanks to ambient noise and various other factors. This is a great and terrible power, and should not

It's The Future, And The Cubs Are As Far From The World Series As Ever
Cody H.

Hey! Short recap this week, because I'm flying to San Francisco in about 5 hours. We celebrated Back To The Future Day at Little Woodrow's by asking exactly zero questions related TO Back To The Future, but we did get to hear Huey Lewis & The News' two best songs, which is good enough. You guys have no idea how tempted I was to make tonight's soundtrack nothing but Huey Lewis' greatest hits album.   Here's what we learned this week: We're gonna have politics questions for the next seven months; who's playing Rey in Star Wards 7; what women can use for their low sex drive; that Melissa Etheridge can cover just about anything and make it sound good; that "wide

Yankee Fans' Tears Sustain Me
Cody H.

Baseball's real fun, guys. Go Astros!   Anyway, hello! Excellent night of quiz at Little Woodrow's as twenty-six (!) teams joined us on the best outdoor patio in Midtown to battle it out for quiz supremacy, free beer, and solar-powered bobbleheads. Here's what we learned last night: Kurt Russell and Mickey Rooney voiced the leads in The Fox & The Hound, but not who you think; Moscow is Riot Central; the Chevrolet Cobalt is a fine two-door coupe; Gingers may or may not have souls; Banjo cover rounds are the best cover rounds; Dudes invented baseball, ladies invented Monopoly; everyone knows their Roman history; video games are hard, but just answer the question; this

Richard Nixon, KING OF THE MOON
Cody H.

Can you believe that the last time we went to moon was in 1973? Over forty years ago, and Richard Nixon was the man who presided over it. Coincidentally, he was also the man who presided over the FIRST time we went to moon in 1969 (although JFK's the one who got the ball rolling). With the advent of the space shuttle and subsequent fall we haven't been back since, but NASA's been making plans for seemingly forever. Mars first, though; they've got water there!   Anyway, hello! 17 teams on the greatest patio in Midtown to fight it out for quiz supremacy and free booze, and here's what we learned: John Boehner has two Twitter accounts; Ohio and the Sound of Music
