Taylor Swift Got Drunk and Tried to Eat My Pizza
Todd Holloman

Let’s talk about expectations. We all have them. We expect the sun to rise every morning. We expect the next “Star Wars” movie will have a spaceship. We all expected that rebooting Vin Diesel’s “XXX” series was not the greatest idea. Lately, we expect our new POTUS to say something dumb on a daily basis. Personally, I expect every slice of pizza I eat to be delicious, no matter where it came from, because pizza is perfect food. Also, drunk people who try to engage me in conversation when I’m on the microphone in the middle of a round during the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company should expect that I’m going

For God So Loved the Geeks...
Todd Holloman

Isaac Asimov once spoke of a “cult of ignorance” that existed in the United States and every year we keep proving him right. There are exceptions, however. One of the major ones being the weekly Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company. It’s a celebration of smart people. (cue patriotic orchestral music) A place where the intelligent can be intelligent without fear. A time when citizens of this great land are rewarded for their brain power, instead of being called names on social media by people who don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re” and who also think “likes” can cure cancer.

Warren Burgers are Very Conservative with the Condiments
Todd Holloman

Our four most recent Chief Justices of the Supreme Court have two things in common: they’re white and they were all appointed by Republicans. That’s just one of the things we learned at last night’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company. Two of the aforementioned justices were named Warren Burger and Earl Warren. Apparently, having “Warren” in your name vastly increases your chances of being a SCOTUS judge. Also, after retirement, Warren Burger opened a chain of “Warren Burger” restaurants, which featured such menu items as the BJB: Blind Justice Burger with RobeSauce and sliders called Lil’

Mary Tyler DON'T SAY IT!
Todd Holloman

Team names. Let’s talk about them. They are one of the most entertaining aspects of the Geeks Who Drink experience. Some people go for puns. Some tie in recent events. Some are so profane they make the Devil himself blush. Some simply ridicule me, your Quizmaster. I look forward to the team names in our weekly brain-climb to the top of Smarty Pants Mountain. So, when I was informed last night by a team member that his team had rejected his team name suggestion, I was all ears. Let me just say, “Shame on you, Mount Punch More Nazis (which I admit, is a pretty great name AND sentiment), but you could have been Mary Tyler Mortis!”

354 Days Without a Bear Attack
Todd Holloman

Last night was the final Geeks Who Drink pub quiz under the Obama presidency and Dry Ground Brewing Company was packed. It was the night before the Inauguration and people wanted beer. Some came to celebrate. Some came to mourn (okay, MOST came to mourn). All came to quiz. While Toby Keith was making America great again with songs about blowing up everything not American while drinking cheap keg beer out of a red Solo cup, we were drinking delicious, locally brewed craft beer and answering questions about eastern monotheistic religions and TV theme songs. Next week, things will be a bit different. We’ll be introducing some new categories. They

I CCCuP
Todd Holloman

In the past few days, our country has been subjected to every pee-pee joke imaginable. For about a 48 hour period, the interwebs were all yellow. And it was glorious! Well, for most people. I’m sure for some of our citizens, the pee jokes wore thin pretty quick. If you were one of those citizens and you came to Dry Ground Brewing Company for Geeks Who Drink last night to escape The Great Wiz of 2017…I’m sorry. Cuz we were all about those piss jokes, yo! We had an entire category devoted to it. But, hey…it’s better to be pissed off than…well, you know. Now, spell ICUP. It wasn’t all urine puns, though. Round

The Snow Witch Project
Todd Holloman

The first snow of the year fell on Paducah yesterday. We got a whopping tenth of an inch. Needless to say, local grocers were sold out of milk and bread in no time. I don’t know if that happens in other parts of the country when there is snow in the forecast, but here in Kentucky, the mere mention of wintry precipitation sends people into an apocalyptic doomsday panic that results in harried, sweaty-palmed treks to the super market for milk and bread. Why those two things? I mean, I realize they’re staples, but is there some kind of secret milk sandwich recipe handed down from Viking lore or something that helps keep one warm on a winter’s night? Or do these people constantly

Should Auld Quizzes Beer Forgot?
Todd Holloman

If 2016 was a person, it would be a…wait…never mind. The personification of this year would be too horrible to contemplate. It would be the kind of creature that would haunt your dreams or, somehow, get elected president. *shudder Last night was our final quiz of 2016 at Dry Ground Brewing Company. We packed the house with 20 teams, ready to kiss this year goodbye with beer and questions about chamber pots. In other words, a normal Thursday at Geeks Who Drink. Usually, this would be the part of the blog where I make fun of a team or individual for being obnoxious or not following the rules. However, even though we had one of our

The Xmas Oyster
Todd Holloman

Twas the quiz before Xmas and all through the brewery, not a creature, except one or two, knew who The Dead Milkmen were. If you want to know why everything has been awful, lately…I’d start there. But, hey…who gives a rip? It’s almost Xmas! It was a pre-Xmas quiz party at Dry Ground Brewing Company with Geeks Who Drink. We had Xmas songs, wise women and wise men, gold beer in place of the frankincense and myrrh, a team with the word “angel” in its name, and shepherds asking the newborn king to help them answer questions. However, there were no pregnant virgins in attendance, as far as I know. One of my

I Promise There Are No "Rogue One" Spoilers Here
Todd Holloman

I’m going to try really hard not to write about “Rogue One” and focus on last night’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company, however, it’s not going to be easy, since your humble Quizmaster and pretty much everyone who attended last night’s quiz went to see “Rogue One” after the quiz was over. So, here goes nothing… “Rogue One” is a good “Star Wars” movie. It tells the story of… Dammit! So sorry. We had a fierce battle for quiz supremacy last night. It was a thrilling race to the top of Smarty Pants Mountain, much like the thrilling battle

Donny Can You Hear Me?
Todd Holloman

It was a battle on the frozen tundra at last night’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz. Well…not ON the tundra. We walked across the frozen tundra to get to Dry Ground Brewing Company. Actually…it wasn’t exactly a tundra…it was a parking lot. It was really cold, though. Donny Osmond. That’s right, Donny Osmond. We had an entire round devoted to the most famous Mormon this side of Brigham Young. When I was a kid, Donny released a song called “Puppy Love.” That was in 1972. Yes, I was alive in the 70’s, you whippersnappers! I had the record of “Puppy Love” and I played it over and over again.

"Cheese Closed, " Said the Detective
Todd Holloman

As a Quizmaster, enunciation is very important. I try to speak as clearly and concisely as possible, so that everyone can understand the questions that I am asking. It’s usually not a problem. I studied theatre in college. I’ve worked in radio for years. I can talk real good, y’all…until you ask me to speak Spanish. I love to hear Spanish being spoken. It’s one of the most beautiful languages on the planet. I’m married to a woman who was a Spanish major in college. What I’m trying to say is that I am pro-Spanish language. My white ass just cannot speak it well. I can’t do that cool thing where you roll the R with your tongue. I always forget

We Are Thankful That 2016 is Almost Over
Todd Holloman

We gathered together at Dry Ground Brewing Company Thursday night to give thanks. Mainly, we were thankful that 2016 will be over soon. Hey, it’s Adrian and last night was my last night as Quizmaster for a while. My husband Quizmaster Todd will be back on the mic the week after next, as we are taking Thanksgiving off. Dry Ground had celebrated Thanksgiving the night before with a magnificent feast and everyone was still full from that last night. It was a low-key affair for Geeks Who Drink. Beer and tryptophan are a hell of a drug. Or maybe 2016 has finally just ground everyone down. Anyway, there are still lots of things to be thankful for.

The following is presented in honor of last night’s “pep talk” round: (somber orchestral music begins playing) Look…I know you’re disappointed. I know you’re scared. I know. I also know that Quizmaster Todd is on the other side of town pretending to be some kind of actor. I know. I know you came here tonight to draw dick pics and write “you suck, Todd” on your scoresheets. I know you just wanted to drink beer and tell Todd how much you hate math questions.

Tales from the Quiz: A Caliphate on Elm Street
Todd Holloman

It was a mild and slightly breezy night. Folks were gathered at Dry Ground Brewing Company. A palpable sense of dread permeated the room. Some suspected what was coming, while others were blissfully unaware. When the clock struck eight, the wary ones’ worst fears were confirmed. Geeks Who Drink was back (insert screaming, thunder, creaky door, rattling chain, and maniacal laughter SFX). From the shadows, emerged the Quizmaster, with his satanic laptop. As he opened the eternally damned contraption, his eyes gleamed with murderous intent. He whipped out an unholy microphone, cleared his throat, and the torture began. Things started out
