Brrrr, Winter is Coming
PeteGilmore

Watch out Houston, 30 degree temps are on their way.  It was in the 70's on Tuesday but will feel like 30 tonight.  Luckily the city shouldn't completely shut down, we should avoid any form of precipitation.   For quiz 356 I experienced another first, 6 rounds outside, 2 rounds inside.  A light shower threatened to ruin my trusty old Asus and mixer so we were forced to deal with the touchy audio inside.  You geeks are awesome, thanks for sticking it out and being flexible, we will probably be inside for the rest of Houston's treacherous winter. Congrats to our Canadian friends for doing so well on quiz last night and everyone who came out and had a

Fidel Castrated
PeteGilmore

Quiz 354...Welcome to December.  What better way to celebrate the last month of the year than by playing the last quiz of November last night with me at Little Woodrow's.  The steaks were sizzlin', the tamales were wrapped up to look like chipotle burritos, we had sweater weather, and a cute French Bulldog made some strange aggressive noises toward a beautiful Weimaraner.  Our quiz featured one of my new favorite audio round styles, level up, you get the points for the highest number correct answer, you could theoretically get 32 points with only 2 correct answers but honestly who has ever heard of Richard Hell and the Voidoids? Quiz was highly competitive, Muggle Struggle

Turkeys are Turkeys Too
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Feliz dia de los Turkeys! Danielle here, your HTX substitute quizmaster extraordinaire. We had a pretty big crowd at Little Woodrow’s Midtown for the day before a holiday. Or maybe we were busy because drinking before Thanksgiving with your Aunt Edna is a valid coping mechanism? Either way, great group of quizzers. I liked each and every one of you. Things we learned at quiz: Henry Ford is not Robocop; you don’t get a commemorative tattoo for sailing to Westeros; David S. Pumpkins has done a lot, but show up in a Washington Irving short story is not one of them; and Brazil is not a continent. Quizzers apparently had food on the brain when selecting their team names

Off in the Woods
PeteGilmore

Classic team names are great.  Off in the Woods reminds me of my college days and intramural sports.  No matter what league or sport I joined, there was always a team named Off in the Woods.  The hope with this name of course is that even if you lost, the other team would then be forced to tell everyone that the "beat Off in the Woods".  My whole team beat Off in the Woods together several times.  See how humorous this is.  Unfortunately it just doesn't have the same effect with pub quiz.  I tried my best to make it work for you last night.  I appreciate the nostalgia of it all. Congrats to the geniuses that won it all last night, even if by

Trump Bans Shredded Cheese; Makes America Grate Again
PeteGilmore

Wow what an uplifting quiz at the end of a contentious day.  So the candidate that most people voted for didn't win the election, again.  I witnessed a lot of emotional people yesterday, from happy to sad to outraged.  We had a Trump themed quiz all lined up for you but I decided to pull the old switch a roo and go with a positive, politics free, sunshine lollipops and rainbows quiz for everyone to enjoy. Thanks for coming out to play quiz with me on the best weather night of the year.  We were quizzing in 68* weather, I love it.  Kanye 2020 and America's Season Finale tied for first last night, which was settled with the tiebreaker.

Baseball and Blurs
Callina

Howdy Little Woodrows! I'm Callina, your friendly West Houston sub Quiz Master. Pete was out being Superman in Seabrook somewhere. He'll be back soon enough.   So, I had no idea there was a game on. I mean, who knew the Rockets were playing.Ha ha. I'm kidding. I had no idea the Rockets or the Cubs were playing last night. I didn't even know they were up 3-1. #strosforlife   I'm super proud of you guys coming out and playing, not letting a little 108 year old curse reversal stop you from what's really important.

Chief Wahoo!
PeteGilmore

Go Tribe!  So we lost to the Cubs last night that is okay.  We can't win them all, just need to win three more before Chicago does.  Sports championships have a funny way of bringing fans from out of nowhere.  If you asked me a week ago how many Cubs fans I knew, I might have said 2 or 3, after all I'm from Ohio and I live in Texas, why would I know many Cubs fans?  Apparently everyone who isn't from the beautiful state of Ohio has been a lifelong fan of the Cubbies or is at least pulling for them to beat my Native Americans.  I get it, they have been losers even longer than Cleveland has been.  We are still riding the high of the Cavs title so it is

Ken Bone Grabs them by the Heart
PeteGilmore

Get your tamales and steak on for pub quiz at Little Woodrows midtown.  It has been confirmed, I am the best and most humble quizmaster to ever host a geeks who drink pub quiz.  It was confirmed by upwards of two people, my mom and myself.  You are all very lucky to have me.   Okay okay, I may not be the best quiz host but I might have the best quizzers.  No other bar has the mix of brains and beauty that our little bar has each week.  While going around taking team photos, I met 5 legit models, by legit I mean they told me they were models.  Brains and beauty, that is a great looking trifecta if you ask me. We had two teams dominate

The Kitty Grabs Back
PeteGilmore

Yes the Kitty Grabs Back, great team name and great victory.  I love big crowds and last night we had yet another packed house at Little Woodrow's Midtown.  The quiz was full of adventure and excitement, I thought it was an easy one though.  I play the quiz on my own during my free time.  This quiz had only 2 16 point rounds yet I got my highest score of the week, 73.  Even my best wasn't good enough to compete with you beautiful geeks.  Our winners scored 79 big ones last night. We quizzed on triple D's, hit songs, freshmen english comp, clowns, Aristotle, famous duos, people from Iowa, dead/living presidents, international borders,

No Tamales = No Bueno
PeteGilmore

I know Wednesday nights are steak nights, and they are delicious but, where was the tamale guy last night?  They are so good, make sure you bring $10 cash so you can try them next week and if he is MIA again then grab a steak.  We had an amazing performance by the Brunch is Back crew, perhaps a little too good, are they really that smart or were they getting help from SIRI, either way they had way too many people on their team and were disqualified from taking home the prizes.  Speaking of prizes, we give the coolest prizes.  Where else can you win gift cards to best buy?   We covered everything from current events to musicals to Lesotho which was totally random

When We Lose, We are Going to Rick's

Great night for a another great quiz at Lil Woodrow's Midtown.  It is getting to be that time of year again where you can get through a day in Houston on just one pair of underwear.  Congrats to all of you who joined us for an exciting quiz and a sexy photo shoot.  I thought we had smart and beautiful geeks last week but this week we were even better looking.   I learned a few things from the quiz.  Ernest Hemingway's nickname was Papa.  Some one who sold cloth was known as a mercer.  Jack Nicklaus has beaten Arnold Palmer again.  Fruits with stones and flesh are called drupes.  Pablo Escobar allowed his hippo to escape his zoo in Colombia.

Finally a night in Houston without 200% Butts humidity.  We got to enjoy the great outdoors, with the help from the many strategically placed misting fans, in beautiful midtown Houston.  We had a few more people but fewer dogs this week.  The dogs that did make it out were hard working.  A quiz first; a dog delivered the answer sheets!   We had a lot of geeks where as smart as they are beautiful.  The scores were yuge!  We learned a lot from quiz last night.  Here are a few of my favorites.  There is a documentary called 9000 Needles about acupuncture which I will make a point to check out if they stick it on netflix.  N'Sync still

I quiz excellence.  Last night was just more proof of that excellence.  We had the best looking crowd to ever geek a quiz.  Check out the higher res versions

Why Didn't You Press Record

Hello geeks.  My name is Pete, I'm your new host.  I'm new to you but not new to hosting your precious little quizzes.  I am the most tenured quizmaster in all of the lands.  I've heard that you were the finest geeks in Houston.  I heard you show up in big numbers.  I heard that you make the quizmaster work for his bar tab.  You certainly are a fine group of geeks.  Bring more smart friends with you next week.  Hosting quiz is never work for me, especially with trusty sidekick Clayton there to do all the hard scoring stuff.   Your scores were pretty weak, 76 points on a night with three 16 point rounds?  I expect more next

Nobody Does It Better
Cody H.

Folks, have you heard of the butterfly effect? Aside from being a terrible Ashton Kutcher movie, it's a hypothetical example of how even the smallest variable can have a big influence; you've seen Jurassic Park, I'm sure you remember Jeff Goldblum rambling on about it. We have a QM who's been with the company a long time suddenly experience a shift in job expectations that requires a shit-ton of travel, which doesn't lend itself well to being in the same place at the same time on certain nights. As such, he's had to give up his regular gig, and as it turns out he and I are basically the only two Quizmasters that could feasibly do said job. So, the natural conclusion takes form: I'm being

Back And Shoutier Than Ever
Cody H.

And we're back! I hope you guys had a great past two weeks with Meghan and Akash filling in for me while I filled in for someone else, but for the foreseeable future I am back as your Quizmaster here at the greatest patio in Midtown! Unfortunately, Houston had to go and get hit by a monsoon so we were forced inside this week where my voice is a bit more...amplified than usual. I'm used to having to shout to be heard outside, so I apologize if my yells caused you any more harm than usual. IMO, it's better to be heard too much than not at all, but that's coming from the perspective of someone who's job is to make sure if you're playing, you can hear me. Hopefully we'll be back outside next week!   Here's
