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

Doesn't Anyone Love MY Little Pony?
PeteGilmore

I've heard it before but it is always funny, My Big Fact Hunt.  It was a hot day that cooled to a beautiful night for quiz on the patio at Little Woodrows and it sounded amazing.  We had perfect t-shirt weather in the middle of January, I love Houston.   Another big crowd of 20+ teams for the second week in a row.  Thanks for coming out, here are a few things I learned last night:  Coke uses extract from a Kola nut, Russia is home to some dangerous volcanoes, it takes humans about 5 weeks to eat their body weight, hypersonic is 5x the speed of sound, and Pegasisters love my little pony bring smarter friends next week drive courteously,

...Really Brings Out the Kid in Me
PeteGilmore

Wow, yes yes we will get you a visual round you will just have to wait.  What a crowd at the Lil Woodrows last night.  You must have heard that we were moving things inside or just happy that A&M wasn't losing another bowl game this week so we could do some quiz because we had a record setting number of teams.  I counted nearly 40 teams!  I'm not good at counting, I'm a history teacher.  Aside from it being our biggest crowd, it might have been our most beautiful crowd, or maybe I had a few too many big ass beers.   Last night I learned: France will start paying employees to answer emails during home hours, manatees can fart their way across the ocean,

Sounds Like Christmas Break
PeteGilmore

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?  We rang in a glorious holiday quiz with our brand new sound system last night.  We are cozying up in the patio area from now on as long as the weather continues to be wonderful.  Alert! No quiz next week due to the A&M bowl game here in Houston.  Go Aggies, Gig them!  If you are a Longhorn then Hook them!   We learned that if you really want the best in spa treatment, you need to visit the Belgian resort town of Spa.  Jimmy Buffet and Fidel Castro were both born on Christmas.  It is easy to confuse Citizen Kane and Waterworld.  Roger Ebert thought Hoop Dreams was the best film of the 90's.

Silent Night, Quizly Night
PeteGilmore

Quiz number 360 was another unique one.  A lesser quizmaster would have packed their bags and gone home.  No mic, no problem.  You geeks are awesome for sticking with it last night and hosting your own quizzes at your tables.  I hope you enjoyed it and will be back next week to hear my voice on the mic again.  Your honesty was crucial to the integrity of the game last night, and it was beyond reproach, you are all outstanding humans. The Brunch Club won it all last night but alas are all such wonderful personalities that they attract too many friends to be eligible for the prizes.  They really are nice people, I enjoy seeing the Brunch Club!  HaywoodJablome got

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.

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

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
PeteGilmore

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.
