Penultimate Drop By
Vaughn

7 teams and one rambunctious birthday party showed up this Sunday to test the limits of group sanity and the speaker system.  It was a great night as usual for all those who ventured into Plug Uglies and I want to send a special shout out to the staff, Gabe, Katie and Marina you guys are world class. Thanks Mike for letting me sub in for you again.   J for Cops ended up winning with quite a bit of class. Free Refills held on to their joker a bit too long and ended up in 2nd place. Next week's my last week subbing for Mike for a while so if you've had fun

Look Who's Talking... Mom's Talkin
Vaughn

6 teams showed up this Sunday to try their hands at Pub Quiz.  It was an amazing night at Plug Uglies and I can't thank the staff enough for always being the cream of the crop. Thanks Mike for letting me sub in for you again.   Free Refills ended up winning with an outstanding score of 92 points. Trivia Pope + Associates never could grab the lead but took it down in a playoff to got 2nd place. Really great crowd last night.  Hope you’ll have me back again

Yesterday’s quiz had some highs, some lows, and some cake.  I appreciate everyone who stuck around and laughed along as jokes were told and new friends were made.  There’s never a dull moment on Sunday night in NYC.  Highlight round of the night for me was definitely Girl Boss, the visuals can be sort of tricky at times but this one was right in my wheelhouse.  Also, did anyone else notice the writer used the word inexplicably twice?  That was the most inexplicable part of the quiz. As always a special thank you goes to the amazing staff at Plug Uglies.   Michael will be gone for a couple more weeks

It's YOU that WE want?
Vaughn

I appreciate all five teams who came out with the goal of doing trivia and succeeded.  It was another amazin'l night and I look forward to doing it all again Thanks Mike for letting me sub in for you again.  It’s always great to hang out with the crowd at Plug Uglies. In Rare Form used their joker in the second round which could have been a mistake but still ended the night with an ever impressive 79 points. The Turncoat and the Mangos nipped at the heels of our leader throughout the night but just couldn’t pull off the victory. It was a really great crowd last night.

Too Warm for Pub Quiz
Vaughn

Plug Uglies,  for the first time you did me dirty.  But I'll blame it on the weather and look forward to seeing you again this Sunday. Free Refills you better be back next week or people are going start thinking you've abdicated the throne. Feeling like you can’t wait until next Sunday to hear my velvety pipes? I’ll be at the Offside Tavern this Tuesday for another session of Pub Quiz.  If you’re in the neighborhood stop by, the leader at the halfway point gets a round of shots. As always a special thank you goes to the amazing staff at Plug Uglies.  Thank

Session #2 or Reason #479 Why I Love Plug Uglies
Vaughn

The Kings have been dethroned! Having spent the last 6 weeks hosting pub quiz at Plug Uglies, I had become used to two inevitable occurrences.  The first would be that my music choices would be applauded and the second Free Refills would take it down in the end. It’s surprises me to say that only one of those two events happened last night.  The crown rests on a new head for the week but If I know anything about being a quiz champion, Free Refills will be back next week and more prepared than ever. Feeling like you can’t wait until next Sunday to hear my velvety pipes? I’ll be at the Offside Tavern

Short Sighted But Causally Awesome
Vaughn

6 teams showed up this Sunday to try their hands at Pub Quiz.  It was an amazing night at Plug Uglies and I can't say more about how much I love this venue. Thanks Mike for letting me sub in for you again.   Pre-Existing Condition ended up winning with a reasonable score of 73 points. Banana Pants lead for a bit but missed out on the winners circle and got 2nd place. Really great crowd last night.  Hope you’ll have me back again

I Don’t Make Mixes, I DJ on the Fly!
Vaughn

My tenure as weekly quizmaster at Plug Uglies has come to a close. It was definitely a blast and Michael, don’t hesitate to reach out whenever you need some help.  I’m always impressed with the gamesmanship of our quizzers and when you watch it week after week it’s hard not to be impressed with some people’s pockets of knowledge. I consider myself to be quite the cinephile but to watch people identify movies like “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” on the first pass is awe-inspiring.  I can’t wait to join you guys again soon.  Thanks for the memories. If you like the way I host, please come

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
