So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Good Night
Metal Gretel

It’s the end of an era as we say goodbye to Reds Porch. I can tell you that the few times I’ve hosted here it has always been a joy. Mainly because every time I show up I always order the exact same food and the exact same drinks.  Even if I can’t eat it immediately, I always order it to go. Delicious!    For food I always got the chicken fried chicken. A Texas staple. I don’t know why, but it called to me every visit to Reds. The mashed potatoes also sang out my name with a hefty side of garlic smothered green beans. HOW COULD YOU NOT ORDER IT?! It was so amazing.

Thanks, Y'all
Patrique

Tons to do on our 4/5 quiz! I asked if anyone knew if 4/5 was "First Contact" day from the Star Trek Universe, but no one knew. You guys need to geek out a bit more.    Baseball started yesterday too! Anyone a baseball fan? Some of you are, based on round 3.    Also, there was a tie for 3rd so two teams had to draw portraits of me! Oh boy. Check out those pics for some details.    Also also, Friends quiz is on 4/30! More information by clicking above!   Thank you very much Reds Porch quizzers for making me feel so welcomed. Y'all are some chill motherfuckers, and I mean that in the best possible

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.

Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.

He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit. 

Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.

The Yanks Go Marching
Patrique

Not the beisbol team, folks! The US Mens National Team. Such an underachieving team gets a ton of support around these parts!   Not only does Jurgen have a tight leash, if he lost to Guatemala again he would be surely run out of the job, right?   Luckily the boys won 4-0 and are once again on track for a 2018 WC berth in Russia. Wait, Russia? Yep. Hopefully the US will be in Group A and maybe make it to the elimination rounds!    Alright thats enough soccer talk for now.    Thanks for sticking with the stickyness last night and quizzing! 12 teams hung out for rounds about GO things, characters,

Barack Brobama Droppin' the Beats
Patrique

Listen folks, I don't want to say that Barack Obama actually covered these songs but I would think that if he did, they would sound a lot like our round 2 last night. Round 2 featured covers of popular songs, dubbed over by our soon-to-be lame duck.    My favorite team name from last night? Glad you asked. It was Boaty McBoatface.    You're probably saying, "Patrick, what the hell? That just sounds like a dumb name. You're dumb. and you smell."   First of all, whoa. Lets cool it on the smells, ok? I sweat a lot and I'm working on it. How would you like it if I told you you smelled? You wouldn't

Californistaycation
Patrique

The Ides of March! Nope, not that Gosling movie:    In ancient Rome, the Ides of March were equivalent to our March 15th. If you’ve heard of the Ides of March, it’s probably thanks to William Shakespeare. In his play Julius Caesar, a soothsayer – or fortune teller – says to Caesar: Beware the Ides of March. In the play – and in reality – Julius Caesar was indeed assassinated on the ides of March – March 15 – in the year 44 B.C. In the ancient Roman calendar, each month had an Ides. In March, May, July, and October, the Ides fell on the 15th

Operation Chicken Fried Chicken Steak
Metal Gretel

  At reds porch I only ever eat and drink the same thing. I ALWAYS order Chicken Fried Chicken steak, Mashed potatoes, and garlic covered green beans. I LOVE me some garlic. I also only drink Live Oak Heffeweisens because as far as beers go, I don’t drink many. I’m more of a cider girl. Last night I wasn’t eating, because I happened to eat  before quiz. I had to have my CFC so what’s a girl to do?! Order it to go of course.  Another funny thing happened last night! One of you quizzers recognized me from the Star Wars quiz! I dressed up as an Ewok and quizzer guy walks up to me and

Se7en: pronounced Sesevenen
Patrique

Hello Red's!   I very much enjoyed having you yesterday on the back porch outside of the trailer! Not sure where else we'd be, but there we are! The back porch of Red's Porch is a great way to spend your warm Austin winter evenings, with food and friends and whatever libation you desire!   Personally I had a cheeseburger. That's not really a libation, unless I had a blender I guess. Even then, I think I'd drink it, just to say I did.    Being March first, we are officially in the tail-end of winter. Austin does not get nearly as cold as my state of Michigan, and having been in Texas for a few years I am fine with it.    Last

Radiohead Is An Indie Band
Patrique

I mean, I don't necessarily care too much for Radiohead. I've listened to Kid A a bunch but who hasn't amirite??!?!    Not really sure where I'm going with that, but I played a lot of Radiohead last night. Radiohead, The Darkness, Atmosphere, Macklemore, and more!   Thanks for coming out last night, Red's Porch! We had a great time out back in the area once known as Thunderdome!   There was exactly one sports question last night, and we all knew which guy knew the answers. Because he said "YES" when I asked it, and when I repeated it he said "DON'T WORRY I GOT IT THE FIRST TIME", and then when I went through

Rock around the Caucus!

I won't lie to you, there were a lot of Caucus-themed teams last night!    Caucus so Hard Suck My Caucus Caucus? You Don't Even Know Us!   I realize there is a very real theme there, which lends itself to the Caucus similarity to a phallic synonym. My challenge to you, quizzers, is to come up with some non-sexual Caucus-pun team names. Use your imaginations, folks! Best Team names get a prize!   Last night, we had rounds on pretty weird things, actually. Did you all get the gist of that? No? well I'm not going to explain it to you, just get your lederhosen

Posse In Effect Indeed
Rev. Lindsay

No mentions of Abe Vigoda’s passing in last night’s team names.  I assume it has something to do with the fact that no one really knows who he is or why he’s relevant.  It’s not like I watched every episode of Barney Miller or anything, or have frame of reference other than it was a show that’s from the 70’s and 80’s.  But I just looked at his IMDB and apparently if there was a cop show in that era, he was on it.  Oh, and the Godfather movies.  Anyway, I only know him from the Beastie Boys song, so I opened quiz with it last night.  There was also a site I heard of a thousand years ago called

Hooray for quiz!  Hooray for Red’s Porch!  Hooray for YOU! Fun facts: the first quiz I ever played was at Red’s… way back when we had the Whedonverse theme quiz, I played there in order to prep beforehand, not realizing I could play anywhere.  We got eighth place out of 50 some odd teams.  Thank sweet baby J (Joss, not Jesus) that most of the questions were Firefly related otherwise we would have been boned.  Anyway… I told you that to tell you this: I’m so happy I finally got to host at the first place I played.  It felt like a graduation of sorts.
