Space, Composers, and Square Pegs
Matt

You ever had your boss’ boss’ boss come to your job and watch you work? Well now I have! Its fantastic!   What a night for space, French composers, and a tough audio round. We had a bunch of great teams out, some serious competition at the top and the bottom of the scores, and some laughs at my expense.   Round 1, we had some anagrams, I’m terrible at those, so I watched Purveyors of Fine Taiwanese Hardware, Spoiler Alert, Eric’s Job Was The Team Name, Hairy Chutzpah, AND Muggles for Jesus

Watching Star Wars For The First Time
QM Ed

  I stopped by Toys ‘R’ Us today to see if I could find some inexpensive-yet-fun prizes for Let The Wookiee Win this Thursday (spoiler: I didn’t). One of the lovely folks working asked if she could help me find what I was looking for. I told her I wanted the Star Wars toys, and she pointed me in the right direction. However, being my friendly and talkative self, I didn’t just take off, rather I began an enthusiastic conversation about Star Wars with her and two of her coworkers.   Which is when one of the coworkers sheepishly admitted that she had never seen any of the Star Wars movies.   The woman was about my

I Would Drive 100 Miles and I Would Drive 100 More…
QM Ed

Last night had two QMs for the price of one! Meg drove all the way up from Cincinnati just train with little ol’ me so she can bring Geeks Who Drink to the folks of the The Queen City.   Round 1 – Speaking of other states, this round was all about what the state names literally translate to. No perfect scores, but Expecto Patron, Titanic Swim Team, DERP, and Dept of Infinity Pool Design each had 7.   Round 2 – Take two awesome songs, smash them together, produce one song that is more awesome than the sum of their awesomeness. It’s like Conservation of Mass, but the opposite. Pawnee Goddesses

Cheap Candy
QM Ed

My favorite holidays, in no particular order, are the day after Easter, November 1, December 26, and February 15. You can get so much stuff that you probably don’t need for, like, 75% off if you just wait until the day after major holidays. Pumpkin-shaped peanut butter cups: $10 per bag all through October. November, the price drops to $2.00. Two-pound chocolate heart box: February 1-14, $14.99. February 15, $1.50. Same thing for Easter, you can get all kinds of egg- and bunny-shaped goodies on the Monday after for pennies on the dollar. Personally, I don’t care if my confections are round, square, trapezoidal or elliptical, or what color the wrapper is. By the

I Apologize For Having To Re-Accommodate Our Quizzers
QM Ed

  This was a very upsetting situation for us at Geeks Who Drink. Although we had a full house at Redemption, a team of QMs from Chicago needed to play our quiz last night. We asked for teams to volunteer to be relocated to another quiz at Lucky’s Wingapalooza and Charcuterie the following night in exchange for a free beer and a sleeping bag under the overpass, but no one was willing to give up their table. I then had to draw a team’s name at random and have the GWD Special Weapons Unit escort the team from the bar. The situation escalated when a member the team asked if they could remain and simply switch tables, forcing an officer to lift the offending player over

I Finally Realized 13-Year-Old Me’s Dream of Being the DJ at My Middle School Dance
QM Ed

We were playing all of barely-pubescent Eddie’s favorite soft hits, best for getting awkwardly closer to members of the opposite sex. We got in the mood with a little Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistable” and a heavy dose of Huey Lewis and the News crooning their hits about love in paradise, complacency in relationships, and time travel. When Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” played, QMiT Susie shared that the song was her first dance with her husband. A great AAAWWWW filled the room. With the mood properly set, Spotify sent us down a sappy list of every slow dance standard of the 80s: “Stuck on You” and “Hello” by Lionel

Let Me Sing You The Song Of My People
QM Ed

At quiz last night, we were absolutely packed and Spotify was hitting all of the awesome songs. Of course, I HAD to let so many of them play to the end of the chorus before I could read the next question. I mean, what kind of monster would interrupt Freddie just as he’s about to hit the high note in “Somebody To Love” just to ask a question about Hong Kong? When I got home from quiz last night, I was still wired and decided to watch Superbad for the third or fourth time, so I didn’t get to bed until about 2:00am. At 9:00am on the dot, my two little furballs thought it best to make three-part harmony with the fire truck that lives half a mile away. Round

Quiz or Wings?
QM Ed

Last night at Redemption, I had the honor of taking on a QM-in-training by the name of Matt. Since it was his second night of training and he already has a lot of natural ability, I just let him run most of the show while I ate my wings. Also, I was very pleased to see a handful of new teams to the venue. Hope to see you all come back every Tuesday!  Round 1 – I was actually paying attention since I ran this round. Everybody got seven or eight points. While Matt was scoring this round, we realized we had a team named Here For Beer and the more Prince-inspired Here 4 Beer. We used the new basketball machine to have a 5-shot shootoff for who

Japanese Unicorns and Pie
QM Ed

Yesterday was Pi Day, or 3.14 for you un-mathematical types. In honor of the occasion, my wife made a lovely Key Lime Pie. At least, it looked lovely. She took it to share with her co-workers for a pie buffet of sorts and I didn’t get a piece. I’m not complaining: she bakes pies, cakes and cookies frequently, and we still have plenty of ingredients for another pie. She also joined me for dinner prior to quiz last night, along with my mother and our new neighbors/her parents. So many of the regulars showed up early, as usual, and got to meet my family (in a “Honey, this is everybody; everybody, Honey” sort of way) before we kicked off the quiz. Other

Chapter 1: “Mr. President, the Kremlin is on the line for you.”  “The president will take the call in the residence.” Steve hung up the phone and dropped his cigar on the carpet. With a heavy sigh, he took his feet off the desk and stepped on the burning ember with a practiced twist of his heel. “Come on Don, it’s time to go to work.” “Mff. Mmm ffmmm mff fmm."  A loud crack echoed thought the Oval Office, the President recoiled, half in pain, half in fear. “Did I give you permission to speak?” A wisp of smoke curled out of Bannon’s mouth, his breath laden with scotch.

This week at Redemption Alewerks it was decided by QM Ed that he make me, the new kid on the block, the QM for the night. After some kicking and screaming I finally got him pulled away from the mic so I could get some practice in before opening my quiz next week. With the flip of my hair and the snap of my wit I was off and rolling before no time. With everything from books to music to gods to Tom Hanks this quiz hit all the major chords. And each round brought forth another person with a hidden passion. After butchering some wording and discussing it thoroughly with the crowd we moved on to finish the quiz with the winner being Pawnee Goddesses. As the night
