Maybe She Was Born With it...
PeteGilmore

Great team names last night from the anal beads to the Pete Why won't you make love to us, you all really brought it last night.  We had a very large crowd of geeks come out to compete for the prizes last night while my beloved Cleveland Cavaliers made quick work of the Boston Celtics.  Tequila Mockingbird came out victorious again, congrats!   We learned a lot from quiz last night.  Here are a few new facts that stood out to me.  Fordham University is not a fan of Chick-Fil-et.  I thought they apologized for all of that homophobic stuff.  Music mashups are hard for some and easy for others.  That Taylor Swift/Disturbed one was a real challenge.

There is Always Money in the Banana Stand
PeteGilmore

I'm a big fan of Arrested Development and any references made to that brilliant show.  I even named one of my dogs Maebe!  Congrats to There's Always Money in the Banana Stand for winning it all last night which was no easy task.  The quiz last night was a tough one.  There weren't too many easy questions or any easy rounds. Once again the weather was perfect for quiz on a night off from Rockets playoff basketball this week after raining us out and forcing us to watch the game at home last week.  BTW go Rockets tonight! Shout out to all the newbies that joined us last night including Pugs not Drugs who bought me a steak!  I can be bribed but remember

Halal, Is it Meat You're Looking For?
PeteGilmore

The Rockets took care of business Tuesday night and we took care of business last night.  We were back in our usual side of the bar with yet another night of perfect weather.  I posted a decent score yesterday for you to all beat, 73 points, congrats to the top 9 teams that all left me in their dust.  We had a huge crowd last night, 22 teams!  Keep bringing your smart friends, Clayton and I love big crowds. The quiz helped us learn a lot last night.  I knew the name Nellie Bly but last night I found out why, her name was a lie but travelling the world was worth a try.  My summer trip to Poland last year finally paid off for me, the Zloty is the official

...Like it Owes Me Money
PeteGilmore

Another great night in the books at Little Woodrow's beautiful midtown location.  Once again we had great weather and a beautiful crowd.  Some lesser bars may have cancelled quiz due to the Rockets playoff game but not Little Woodrow's.  We may have had to move to the east side patio but we made it work.  The quiz was a tough one but we had lots of fun with it.  I liked the east side patio, I felt closer to you geeks but not too close.  We learned a lot about each other and which team member has the strongest forearms thanks to the flute playing Pan. Congrats to Sexual Harassment for winning the whole thing last night. Congrats to the Rockets for

Dry Shampoo
PeteGilmore

Thanks for coming out to the best quiz in Houston.  Little Woodrow's beautiful midtown location has the best geeks in town.  We had another great time at quiz last night, we even got the dumbest members of your teams involved in the action at least for a round. My new friends from Target didn't win but they had fun and will be back next week for more.  Practice tearing out answer sheets between now and then.  I met some great dogs last night, remember your pups are welcome on the patio! The quiz taught us a lot last night.  Sex was is from California, now we call it vaseline.  It is easier than I thought to confuse Casablanca and Battlefield Earth.

Team CoCo
PeteGilmore

We couldn't have had a better quiz than we had last night.  The combination of beautiful weather, beautiful geeks, and a beautiful quiz made for the best quiz of 2017.  Clayton and I showered you humans with points last night.  We had three 16 point rounds, all of which were pretty easy.  I tested your knowledge of current events in round 1.  We combined songs with the same titles in round 2.  Sooner or later the plot points were revealed and tv shows were named for round 3.  I learned that elephants love eating christmas trees from round 4.  Initials and names were the clues for round 6.  Paul Rudd sang round 7 to us.  Round 8 was totally

Part the Red Sea? We'll Go Through Djibouti
PeteGilmore

The day started with a storm of rain and lightning rolling through the greater Houston area and ended with a storm of geeks full of beer and useless knowledge stumbling through a quiz at Little Woodrow's beautiful outdoor midtown location.  I've said it before, we may not have the best scores but I would be lying if I said we didn't have the best looking geeks.  If you lost don't feel badly, at least you are beautiful and is there anything more important in life than to be really really ridiculously good looking? We had some tough rounds to start of the night, risky definitions and Pentatonix covers proved to be very difficult.  Things eased up slightly with our round

I Osculate on the First Date
PeteGilmore

There were several good team names last night, Mutual Ass Play, Manifest Destiny's Child, and What Happened to Acoustic Wednesdays?  I'm a sucker for team names that use my name without lowering my self esteem.  My friends from luke's icehouse came to play quiz with us last night at little woodrows and they brought enough smarts with them to earn second place.   "Tell me we are pretty", you are pretty.  We had a great quiz last night even though my Tom Jones joke didn't really get the laugh I was hoping for I still had a good time.  We learned about classic tv shows, 80's style remixes, silver or gold, a round on the ladies, and a round on trees. Congrats

“I Fell Out Of My Mother’s [REDACTED] 27 Years Ago”
CLAY-TON, The Impostor

Hello Conserv---I mean, Patrons of Little Woodrows Midtown!   Quizmaster Pete is out doing the Spring Break thing, cutting loose in some exotic locale as he is wont to do. He takes some serious vacations, racking up some serious frequent flyer miles globetrotting like he was from Harlem and not Ohio. So once again I was in the Quizmaster seat, but this time around I had the assistance of the one and only Digger, who stepped up to handle the Scorekeeping duties and Team Policing for all you fine teams out there.   Speaking of Team Policing, I want to address something that’s come to my attention recently regarding our rules about team sizes.   At

Our Plan A is Plan B
PeteGilmore

Rodeo wrangled the competition last night.  Little Woodrow's was experiencing low T, bring your smart friends next week.  We got to enjoy the beautiful weather outside last night for quiz.  It was great to see all of the new faces including geeks from Iran, Malaysia, South Korea, and of course Canada!  I hope you all enjoyed the quiz and we hope to see you again next week, become a regular, bring more friends, sign up for our email list so we can give you clues to the quiz. We learned a lot last night.  Some folks are upset with Disney for having a gay character but seemingly have no problem with beastiality.  The Camry was the best selling car last year.

Rogue One...Oops I meant Moonlight
PeteGilmore

Welcome to the blog from last night's quiz.  Here you will find a brief recap of the quiz and possibly other things.  Thanks again to all of the beautiful geeks that came out last night for the quiz.  We didn't set any scoring records but I'll be damned if we are the best looking geeks in the country.  We had plenty of fun last night with all of the birthdays and engagement celebrations going on, shots were going down everywhere!   Here are a few things we learned last night in addition to the odd fact I can't remember more than 3 repeat requests but somehow know pi to 30 digits which was verified by Dr. Emily last night.  Justin Beiber's birthday

Sandusky's Little Urban Achievers
PeteGilmore

Thank you beautiful geeks for quizzing with Clayton and I last night at Little Woodrow's Midtown Houston.  We had geeks from all over the world play with us last night including New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, and Spain!  The quiz covered everything from famous French people, terms of endearment songs, lady justice, valley girls and crotch infections, vampire cowboys, kidnapping, to one night movies.   The competition was fierce as usual and for once we didn't have a tie at the top.  Stand with Sweden just edged out Let the Good Times Troll for the victory.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Sandusky
PeteGilmore

Topical and Clever, I love it.  Great team name last night by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Sandusky.  I've been hosting the quizzes for Geekswhodrink for 4 or 5 years now and have never gone more than two weeks without hosting a quiz until now.  It felt great to get back to you beautiful geeks after a 27 day break.  Clayton and the Superbowl took great care of you while I was gone. We had a great quiz that saw a tie at the top between Shakshukkah and Alternative Factors.  BTW sorry for butchering your name shakshukkah.  Alternative Factors came out as champs.   The quiz covered the Americas, Chicago Music, historical people who may or may

Bears, Beets & Betsey DeVos
CLAY-TON, The Impostor

Guys, I’m listening to this Yes record right now, and it’s freaking me out.   BACKSTORY: I make short films. Well, I try to. As of late the trying has become doing. Tomorrow evening I start a five day shoot to capture my latest project and some related material before my leading lady heads up to NYC for awhile to pursue work on the legitimate theater (but that’s another story with its own back).   My film concerns two record collectors in love. One of them is a fan of the band Yes, and in my upcoming film, an argument arises when the fan gifts their skeptical partner a Yes LP. Hilarity ensues.   Despite writing

Things You Shouldn’t Put In…
CLAY-TON, The Impostor

Well Well Well   It seems the Scorekeeper has become the Quizmaster.   It’s actually not a big deal, I swing both ways with Geeks Who Drink, and have for the entirety of the two years I’ve been with the company.   Having sat in both chairs, you learn some things about Quizzing. It’s precious knowledge, but I won’t let that stop me from offering an honest tip from the Scorekeeping side of the tracks.   THE JOKER.   You know how he is. Circle him once during the game and you get twice the correct points for that round.  Some rounds are worth 8 points, and others

Will Do "Stuff" For Super Bowl Tickets
PeteGilmore

Have you ever wondered what the bar looks like an hour before quiz?  I have so I went early last night, it was a quiet desolate place.  There were a few bar flies at the outdoor bar but the inside was calm before the storm.  Will anyone show up?  I sat alone in tranquil anticipation of a night full of rich encounters with the eclectic group of geeks that were certain to come play fantastical game of wits. As time grew nearer and nearer a fear began to build that perhaps no one would show due to threats of bad weather.  Rain be damned, the geeks showed up in large numbers at the last minute and the game was on.  We had another 21 teams compete for the crown
