He Plays Around
QM Stephanie

Tonight, sadly, for the first time in my history as a Geeks Who Drink Quizmaster, I accidentally gave away an answer. I’ll find solace in the fact that we all already knew what the answer, because everyone ever knows that the Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Despite my giving away an obvious answer, it was a stellar quiz for sure.   We started off the evening with a pretty dry round on Israel. Only Promiscuous Quizers came away with a perfect score. Tonight we also learned that “Admiral Ack-Bar” is not the hyphenated founding father Jerusalem’s airport is named after. Crazy right?   During round 2,

In Other News, Bob Barker is Still Alive
Tsar Nicholas II

Wow, 2016 must have messed you guys up, because holy hell you thought a lot more people were dead.  I try not to google your answers during the quiz, distracts from my joy of basking in the glory of friendship, beer, and knowledge.  But damn, you guys made me really nervous.  All these answers saying so and so died, and I wasn't ready to believe it.  Good news, you were always wrong, and beloved individuals like Alex Trebek and Bob Barker are in fact still alive. The bar was packed tonight and we had the most new teams.  Great job keeping up everyone, your parents all told me that they're very proud of you.    Here's what

Giant Beavers: Like the Animal
QM Stephanie

New Year, same me! It was a crazy night of flashing, or dimming lights, forgetting to read back an answer, and all around good times at Trubble Brewing. I even had another 2017 will be the year I grow a pair and finally get on board with the suspenseful zombie show thing. Probably not, but hey! Maybe! Lets look back on how it all went down…   We started off the night, and hopefully the year, with high hopes and high scores. Our average score was 6 points, and Functionally Awkward? and Charlie Manson Death Watch managed to get perfect scores.   Performance in round 2 was not nearly as stellar as it usually is.

Everyone Came Sooner
QM Stephanie

The bar was absolutely packed tonight! While we had an average 13 teams, those teams were all large and in charge. It got a bit roughty at times, which I’m sure had to do with us all blowing off copious amounts of 2016-induced stress. All in all, I could think of no better group of people to come back to after a three week quiz hiatus. Thanks for helping me get that quiz fix guys!   Here’s how it all went down…   Holy crap! There were 6 perfect scores in round 1. People have been paying attention! Also worth noting, I said “coup” correctly tonight. These rounds that reuse old questions leave for a lot of room for redemption.   Round

Baby, Won't You Start My Car?
Tsar Nicholas II

The starting song from Rubber Soul contains the Beatles infamous lyrics about kind men and women who brave the cold to start their bae/boo's car.  It's truly a heart warming piece because we all know that nothing sucks more than leaving late for work only to realize that you also have to de-ice your entire car. Holy icicles batman I could really go for one of those automatic starters right now. Anywho, yay quiz, we had the most fun tonight guys. Only a couple of fries were stolen from me, the pencil sharpener kinda worked alright, and we had a couple new teams (hi new friends!). Plus there's only 4 more sleeps 'til Chrismukka.     Here's a list

Five Points For All of Fort Wayne
Tsar Nicholas II

When I accepted my job at Parkview, I received a small but mighty informational packet chock full of Fort Wayne Fun Facts. This included things like, hey we're home to Vera Bradley, three minor league sports teams, and former mayor Harry Baals.  I was quite taken aback when I realized just how much I did not know about Fort Wayne. It all came to a head when I was listening to NPR's ask me another.  It was a mash-up round, combine the entertainer and town names.  The question was something along the lines of, "A Vegas headliner famous for 'danke schoen' moves to a city in Indiana where Johnny Appleseed is buried" They guessed, "Newton-ville" "Newton-town" it was rough.  But

Fries were touched, ramifications were delivered
Tsar Nicholas II

I know you all had a choice tonight between the quiz and Hairspray live.  And I wanted to take a moment to commend you all for making the right choice. As for you musical theater bandits, know that we will graciously welcome you back next week. Who watches live TV anyway? That's why we have hulu. So everyone go home and watch it on replay so we can all talk about it next week and reenact our favorite scenes/songs/dance moves. Ok 1, 2, 3 break!   So how did you stack up?   In round one, Worms began their strong, albeit illegal, command of the board with a perfect score. And for your information DQ'd, Alexander

That's My Signature Move
QM Stephanie

The room was filled with excitement tonight as we all got out post-turkey quiz on. It was great to see so many regular teams, as well as some new comers. Let’s see how we did!   We started off strong in round one with 4 teams getting perfect scores. Win or Lose, We Still Booze, Trumpcentration Camp, Hairy Chutzpah, and Field of Dream Taxis all got every question correct, even though for some reason I couldn’t say Brad Pitt’s name.   Next, in round 2, we had some particularly confusing scoring, but no worries, that was my problem. By getting the last question correct,

We’re Not Crazy, It’s Just a Pub Quiz
QM Stephanie

Ahhhhh the eve of Thanksgiving. Considering the massive amount of eating ahead of us tomorrow, we still had a good showing for the quiz at Trubble Brewing. The stockings were hung all around the bar with care, and since the commercial start of Christmas is tomorrow at the end of the parade, I’ll let the early Christmas decorations slide this time. However, an innocent group of people got to the bar during round 7, and walked in right as I was playing “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and I’m quite sure they thought they had stumbled into some alternate universe where Thanksgiving isn’t a thing and Christmas never ends. I swear, were not crazy people, it’s

This is a blog
Celia Anne

The blog is a reference to Demitri Martin, who unfortunately was not an answer for our round seven audio. I say unfortunately because it was his special “If I” that really got me into enjoying stand-up, that and of course the great Steve Martin (seriously everything he does is great and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise!) WOW! What an amazing turnout tonight guys! We had people waiting for spots to play, and because we are all super nice, no fights broke out (yay for teamwork!). We had 17 teams play with us tonight, so instead of doing shout-outs per round, I’m just going to recap a few things! We had a few clowns shout out answers in two different

Remember When the Cubs Won
QM Stephanie

I think I speak for everyone at Trubble Brewing when I say, “We needed that.” For many of us it has been a rough few days, and for all of us it has been a rough few months, heck, a rough election cycle. Thus, we all came together to turn off the phones, ignore the facebook, try to ignore the existential dread, sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy the lightest, sweetest, most uplifting Geeks Who Drink Quiz ever.   There was sunshine, rainbows, puppies, kittens and lollipops in the quiz. There were even cute adorable animals playing on the TV. They showed a goat climbing up a ramp with a puppy and a pig with a wheel chair!!   Anyways, on to some

Water Polio or Land Polio?
QM Stephanie

There was a strong energy in the bar tonight. I guess there was some important sports ball game or something on the TV. Between the World Series, the unseasonably warm weather, or the surprise rain, it was a very interesting night.   There were only 4 perfect scores tonight! I’ll blame it on all of tonight’s distractions. However, because of the three rounds worth 16 points, we still had some very high scores. Back to those perfect rounds, in Round 1, Dream Taxi Collective earned a perfect score, in Round 4 The Sixlets earned a perfect score, and in Round 7 Dream Taxi Collective and The Sixlets

Spooktacular!
QM Stephanie

Twas a spooktacular night for a “semi-spooky” quiz! Outside it was dark and stormy, and inside spider webs covered the walls. The answer packets sat next to a Geeks Who Drink pumpkin and some treats for all my quizzers: spooky skull erasers! Guys from Trump OBGYN were dressed the part for sure in their blue scrubs and stethoscopes. Since they were the only ones with the balls to show up in costume, they earned extra special monster eraser caps for their pencils. Surely this advantage helped them earn some points!   We started off the night with a very strong showing in round 1. The lowest score 6 points, so most of our teams earned 6 or 7 points

Why Yes… I am the Voice from Above…
QM Stephanie

There are a few things that I really love about the patio seating at Trubble Brewing. 1) It adds like 10 tables and a ton of room for our quizzers, 2)The patio seats have a beautiful view of the fountain, and 3) If people come late they have no idea what I look like and only hear me as “the voice from above.” While most of my outside quizzers, who will unfortunately soon have to migrate indoors (unless they bring snowsuits or something. That would be awesome!), are regulars and could pick me out of a line up, today the third reason for patio love really showed it’s self. Usually, people try to play it cool and pretend they know who I am when I come out to check on them, and

It was a dark and stormy night...
Celia Anne

You know it is going to be a rough day when you wake up with literally 7 minutes to get up and get ready and drive the 15 minutes it takes to get you to work to be there at 7am. You fumble around in the dark trying to find just the right black skirt and top to wear, then just throwing whatever you can find because you don’t have time to narrow it down. You never seem to get back on track; your day is just one step ahead of you. There is only one cure, and that is pub quiz. Our quizzers could not be stopped by rain (they also proved they couldn’t be stopped by tornados either earlier this summer) as we had a full house at Trubble Brewing.

An Evening of Amazing Answer Sheets
QM Stephanie

Tonight will go down as the night with the answer sheets to end all answer sheets. Not only did I have a sheet proclaiming “WHY STEPH WHY!?!” and a sheet (for the round on Broadway musicals) where every answer was “Hamilton”, but I also had a team with the best answer sheet theme I have ever seen.   When I first flipped through the first round answer pile, I almost missed the work of art hidden amongst the average pieces of perforated paper. Hidden in the stack lay a diamond in the rough: an answer sheet with a theme so different, so creative, that I was amazed when I finally realized what I was looking at. Now Team Selfie is no
