Rembrandt van Rijnjob
Patrique

Take it easy guys.   Chelsea is out of town, so Mateo and I are stepping to the metaphorical plate and bringing you the best Tuesday quiz in South Austin! (Take that RJ)   The servers had their own competition at Reds Porch last night as well, and I am happy to report that LILA won the still-to-be-named prize that was part of that contest. People winning things, nothing is better.    Speaking of winning there was a winning trio of teams last night that took first second and third! They mastered rounds on Current Events, Science Covers, Kanye & Adam West, Miners (wink), Artists, Schwartz's, and &s.  -yes

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.

She Could be a Farmer in Those Clothes
Cheez

What up Tuesday people!? We had a blast on Tuesday.  My lovely gal, Emma, was front and center last night, making us look more beautiful. She comes to quiz every now and then and when she does I have her work a bit for us. It's awesome! She gets free drinks, and we ALL have fun! In honor of Jack White we had a White People visual round. Just had to name the person with White in their name, or their name translates to White. You guys did well on that! The Celebrity Equations round was my fave! Even though a team thought the Jeffersons were in the 90s. Daaaaammmnnn, Gina! There! Is that better? I didn't want to

Tardiness is not something you can do all on your own.
Cheez

“Many, many people contributed to my tardiness. I’d like to thank my mom, for never giving me a ride to school. The LA city bus driver for taking a chance, on an unknown kid. And the wonderful crew over at McDonald’s, who spend hours making those Egg McMuffins, without which I would never be tardy.” Clueless, amirite!? And when I got home last night, my girlfriend was watching it. I was so happy! She’s the best. Anywho, yes, Clueless was on the quiz last night and I made that little speech. When I was in high school taking those standardized tests, one of the writing prompts was violence in the media. I totally used Cher’s speech for one

Pwn that Shizzle!
Evan

There was a little kid at the table right in front of me.  And while I still included pertinent swear words and adult references, let's just say my jokes and overall vocabulary were a bit less colorful than usual.  It was weird enough as it was, talking about weed and prostitutes on a microphone in front of a small child.  Though I'm pretty sure he didn't give a rat's ass about whatever the fuck some stranger on a PA was shouting about.  He probably just wanted tortilla chips and something to scribble on with crayons.  I mean, if he was anything like me at that age.  (Or, you know, if he was anything like me right now.)   Someone called

No Rain, and the Sky Was Pretty
Cheez

Hey Tuesday people! Thanks for coming out! We were a bit scared of the rain, but nothing happened! We had 19 teams come out. We had a couple QMs in the house as well. QM Mike, we just got him trained up the week before. He came to play and kicks some ass. QM Laura from Houston came out as well. She was playing hooky from her regular quizzes. Sometimes you gotta take a break! We had some interesting rounds. Round 7 you had to name the country. I played a song and a news report from a country. That was pretty tough. How could you guys mistake the Canada stuff for the USA?! The song was "Blame Canada" from the South Park movie. Hilarious

Bill, You're Such a Tease
Cheez

Thanks for coming out and braving the weather! With the whole town shutting down at 4pm yesterday, wasn't sure what the turn out would be. But we had 13 teams going strong! We had a trainee! Mike was in the building! I had him read a couple rounds, then Dave super manager, asked if we could finish early so we could all make it home before Bill blew us. Away, that is. Bill blew us away. So I finished the quiz super fast style. Thanks for understanding! There were some great rounds tonight and you all did well! Arm and Hammer was our round 2. Everyone got the Creed song right. Is that bad? Then there was But

The Legend of Red's Porch Keep
Evan

A raven from King's Landing alights on your sill.  On its leg, you find a tiny scroll.  You unroll it, the anticipation making your hands shake ever so slightly.  Here is what it says:     "Greetings from the Order of Geeks Who Drink.   Congratulations on your recent victory at Red's Porch Keep.  Word of your bravery during the siege spread quickly.  You defended not only your honor, but also drank a lot of booze.  A lucky few took home the spoils of war.  But for those of you who returned to your homelands empty-handed, take solace in the fact that you left with a full heart.   Hugs

Who the Hell is David?
Cheez

Hey Tuesday gang! As you know, Patrick is in Europe, having the best time! Which is great! So we will have new QM David scoring while he's out. We had a great time hanging out, and I'm always willing to break in a new QM. I'm pretty harsh. David will probably tell you that too.  Anywho, we had a nice time. It's getting hot outside! That means porch time at Red's Porch. I love porch time! Everyone can bring their dogs and we can look at that sunset. Red's has the best view. I love it.  We quizzed you on Bleach, a sooner or later round The Mythical Edition. This was the first sooner

Cowboy Boots is Dickface
Cheez

Oh what a night! Remember that song? Totally applies.  You guys had some great team names. They were all dick related. Nice theme. I haven't seen that many dicks in one night since QM Kavi made me look at the Tumblr page, Dicks in Shoes. It's a real thing. I promise! Everyone team did a great job last night! I was thinking that we stumped you on Olde English, a round about things that happened in England before 1700. But you did better than I thought! And the groans that were heard were shooshed. We also quizzed you on Thanks Mom, TV Funny People, and Aught Not. Scores and jubilations were high! Our

None of You Floated Away!
Cheez

Heya gang! Thanks for coming out last night! I'm glad that none of you were hurt or flooded. Monday was CRAZY! I was supposed to go score at another quiz, and Patrick told me he could handle it on his own. Figured it would be slow, since Austin turned into a big lake.  Ditches were crazy with water. There was water all over the streets, a lot of closures and things. My power only flickered on and off a couple times, we were lucky.  But when it stopped raining the sky looked amazing. It was all pink, orange, blue on one side, and still dark on the other. The clouds looked like bubbles in the sky. It was quite majestic.  Anywho, it

Hey people! We had a great night! And some "great" team names. There was one that was too soon, you guys kinda boo'ed and then started applauding. Nice.  Patrick and I were back as a team! We have a good time working together. He's fun, I'm fun. It's all fun! The weather has been so weird lately. It's been raining like crazy, then they say it will rain, and it's just cloudy. Make up your damn mind! Last night I was in San Angelo helping to kick off the first quiz ever. It was a blast! I love training new QMs, and I really love quizzing. So it was 2 of my favorite things!

Molly's Late.....AGAIN!
Cheez

We were busy last night! Which is awesome! You guys made QM Alyssa work hard for her money. I like that.  There were 21 teams hanging with us. A bunch of new quizzers and some OG quizzers. I was out last week, and it was really nice to come back and hear all of you talk about how much you missed me. I try not to miss quiz, but I just got back from Denver and I needed to take a break. QM Ozzy subbed for me. The first time he's hosted there in a long time. He started Red's!

Of all the subjects we covered during the quiz this week it was the deadly starfish question that caught my attention. Lately my girlfriend and I have been watching A LOT of nature documentaries. I highly recommend you follow our lead on this and also highly recommend you get really high when you do.

Lucille Ball Sweat and Bruce's Balls
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Hey gang! We had a great time last night! We had a trainee, and Patrick and I got to sit back and loom over his head.  David, or Dave, or whatever his name is, kicked ass. We went a bit over time, but that's expected when we have a trainee. I have to tell him so much SHIT! People think you just get up there and read, but it's a bit more intense than that. But he did great under pressure. Look out for this guy! We had a few Bruce Jenner team names, and a Baltimore team name. You guys certainly are creative.

The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Oh what a night!! We had a rambunctious crowd on Tuesday. And a lot of dogs again! I love that. That's one reason I love Red's so much, dogs. And crazy quizzers. When I first got to Red's the patio was pretty full already. It was so nice outside! Saw a few dogs, one was sleeping. He was tired.  Then I heard this girl laugh in this crazy way. And then her friend was like, Janice! They were asking each other Friends trivia questions. I immediately thought, they are going to like quiz. Especially when I say that we just had a Friends theme quiz. Quiz started and they totally played! They got a little rowdy. A couple teams were shushing them, but they weren't being assholes.
