The Hits They Keep Coming!!!
Vaughn

Last night I witness to an impressive victory at the always enjoyable Plug Uglies.  It’s beginning to feel we’re going to have to bring in a ringer or two to dethrone the impressive team of sometimes one Free Refills, their margin of victory was +18 and I can assure you that is with some stiff competition in the wings.  So I unofficially throw down the gauntlet to anyone who may be reading this and considers themselves a trivia buff, come on down to Plug Uglies this Sunday and let’s so what you can do. I was pleasantly surprised by both the “Ureathra Franklin” and “Barris vs. Berry” round.  As a fan

My Brackets Giving Me March Sadness
Vaughn

Just another great Sunday night at Plug Uglies, this is starting to feel like my home away from home and I really truly mean that.  It’s great to have a little haunt on Sunday night where I can go stretch my legs and my vocal chords with some really interesting and dare I say hilarious people. It’s March Madness again so the crowd was a bit thin but I’m definitely happy a few teams showed up and took the pub quiz plunge.  Having set out to do the same quiz twice in one day I was fairly impressed with the range of the questions.  I can’t believe how many people thought that Marion Barry was Joe Jackson.

Forget The Trump Remember The Cannolis
Vaughn

It was another amazing Sunday night at Plug Uglies, I’m always  pleasantly surprised with how great the crowd is and I can't wait to go back.  Sooner than later I hope.  I really truly enjoy this venue, the great staff and their always energetic and attentive regulars. I'm going to make this a short one because I have to get some last minute supplies, this march blizzard may take us all.   I'm a true sceptic so I'm sure we won't even get 3 inches of snow but if you don't hear from me soon, please send memes and trivia questions. Thank you to Michael for once again for taking the night off so I could have some fun

Best Nights with Friends and Booze
Vaughn

On an ordinary Sunday night at Plug Uglies, I’m pretty sure the focus would be entirely on Michael and his skills as a quizmaster, however, this week was special and we had 89th Annual Academy Awards.  Nothing screams pay attention to me more than pretty dresses and navy blue tuxedoes (a trend I can get behind).  I was pleasantly surprised with the crowd this past evening and I really hope that the crowd was happy with my energy.  I really truly enjoy this venue and the amazing crowd that comes out. It seems like cheating to say this but my favorite rounds are always the timed brain dump

Happy President's Day!
RegineMont-Louis

Happy President's Day! Why do we celebrate this? I mean don't get me wrong, I'm all about bank holidays. But seriously though, why? Also I got hot sauce in my eyes earlier and it is THE.WORST.SERIOUSLY.  How, might you ask? Well. I did a shoot earlier for FOMO Daily (shamelss plug) and this hot sauce competition. The thing is, I touched the hot sauce, washed my hands. Went about my business. Had to put contacts, proceeded to do that and BAM! Cue throbbing hot pain. My tears were hot.Apparently, normal soap and water do not wash off hot sauce. Rubbing alcohol or surgery soap or fucking bleach would work better. I learned the hard way. Looked like I had

Wow! An awards statue!... Oh, it's a Grammy.
John

Fillin' in for Mike last night at Plug Uglies for a bit of quizzin' shenanigans.  A nice turnout at the Plug's with 5 teams and a whole lotta heart.  And hey, the Grammy awards were playin' in the background, which provided a nice distraction for our teams with dead weight (lookin' at you Sfoiglatella.) Some really nice scores last night, especially considering a tough first round with an average score of only 4.8.  I was surprised to see Sfoiglatella forgoing their joker in round two with a quiz-best 14 points, but it proved to be a wise choice as they were one of two teams to score a perfect 16 points on our

I'm Sorry For The Tardiness David!
Mike

As the one loyal reader of this blog I'd like to apologize to David for being late getting this up.  I was absolutely slammed at work all day and just couldn't get it together. Anyway!  Going back to Sunday we had a nice turn out at Plug Uglies.  6 teams went at it in what I would consider a much more enjoyable quiz.  The questions were challenging but not impossible.  It sort of matched the mood of a lazy Sunday evening. As more often than not Free Refills pulled out the win edging newcomers Dumbledore Hodor and Mordor. Refills used their joker perfectly in the 2nd round and got a perfect 16 out

Bad And Boujee
Mike

I'm back...for a bit at least. We had trivia.  Free Refills didn't stay.  It's cool I was only borderline offended. We had 5 teams play.  The Nuclear Winter Of Our Discontent ended up winning after a battle with Stoneface all evening.  Very excited for a new year at Plugs.

Epiphany
RegineMont-Louis

I was away on holiday in Martinique and this is what I learned: As a black person, I do tan. I mean I didn't learn that but let's say it was re-enforced. If lentils look like seeds vis a vis something growing out of them...it MAY give you a bacterial gut infection which results in questionable shits...or it could just be all the booze Your friends may not always want what you want and can you cope with it?

Air Bud Will Always Love You
Jack

Trainee Jack here, blogging in Mike’s steed. Sunday evening’s quiz at Plug Uglies was the last stop on my training tour to become a fully fledged Quizmaster and it couldn’t have been a better experience.   Once the crowd from the Giants game cleared out, the bar was pretty quiet, but a good number of folks stuck around for the quiz – quite a few of them were first-timers, including the top two winners! Granted, they had an advantage since Plug Uglies’ reigning champs, Free Refills

Biggie's Night
Alexa

Well let's just say that tonight was Biggie's night! There were two questions about Biggie Smalls and the second question brought up memories about those great songs. Who knew that you'd need to know so much about the notorious BIG??I got to cover for Michael at Plug Uglies and it was a great spot! Really fun bar, not too crazy, and the bartenders are the best. I felt very welcomed and no stress at all. About 10 minutes before we started I went around and invited people to play and a ton of people were interested that had never played before! I ended up getting 9 teams which was the biggest I've had on my own. Overall everyone was really attentive and fun to play

Free Refills. That's All
Mike

I think I may have figured out how to keep Free Refills on their toes.  I just say what place everyone is in but never read the score! So they won again.  They always win.  It was a foregone conclusion. There was an entire round of clips from famous movies as if this wasn't going to be enough of a layup. Anyway, Bruce Willis Is Dead Too and Boobies +1 both newcomers came out and finished in 2nd and 3rd respectively.  Very nice scores for their first game.  I hope they continue to come out. See ya'll next week!

Lonely Planet
Mike

Sunday nights are tough.  Everyones been watching football and drinking all day.  Couple that with the fact that the NYC marathon happened yesterday and you have a recipe for a wild time.  Well it was certainly like that at Plugs.  We battled on though! A couple of new teams came out for the Lonely Planet sponsored event.  Ultimately it was a two team race by the end.  Street Rats and Michaels were neck and neck all night.  Ultimately Street Rats pulled out by 1 point. I'll see everyone next week!
