Walk-ins Take the Cake
Nate Fincher

Sure, regulars are the back bone of keeping trivia going. I’m always so happy to see my regulars and always so bummed when I find out they won’t be there (because of friends from outta town!? Really!?! BRING THEM TO TRIVIA!!!). But even better than regulars is the walk-ins! The people that have no idea what the hell is goin on, the people who, for whatever reason, have stumbled into our little flock of lambs. And it’s always the best when those newbies win! Taint Misbehavin’ came into our house and OWNED IT!! These two guys gave us the smack down on two bonus questions and took 1st place with a 2 point lead. Well played with that joker on a 16 point

The Benefits of Sharing
Nate Fincher

So, this may become a thing. Last night we ran a special at the bar where if you shared the event on facebook and showed the bartender, our beautiful Meredith, then she would give you happy hour prices all night! So, folks, it could really benefit you to keep an eye on facebook for trivia events. Make sure you’re following “Geeks Who Drink – Eugene” and the “Wayward Lamb” on facebook. If this becomes a thing, that’s where you’ll hear about it first! Team names last night were both inventive and descriptors of the team members. Lex’s Dads sat up at the bar, but no Lex was seen…she must be underage and dads had the night out!

Bigger is Better
Nate Fincher

So what if we only had 4 teams, they were 4 large teams! And that was enough to fill out the front “fish bowl” of the bar. This whole front space is starting to grow on me, I feel more in the crowd that over the crowd. If I wanted to reign over a crowd I’d be a drag queen…oh wait… So we all loved George Michael, but what made him so special to get nearly a whole quiz about him? Was it cuz he was last to go/ freshest in our mind? Or do one of you editors have a little chub for sexy ol’ George? I bet it’s the later. Such a shame I’ll never get to catch him in the men’s room. I just wish we coulda played some soft GM in the

Where My Audiophiles At?
Nate Fincher

Everyone peed on round 2, apparently those songs were more abstract that originally intended! Many teams had blank looks. Most were able to pull either an artist or a song title only few were able to get both. Outside of that teams made it a fairly even night. Most teams stayed neck ‘n neck throughout the night. Bonus rounds were dominated tonight by two guys on the same team and then taking 1st place tonight, Pretty Prolapse was in a great position to feast on free food after trivia! No one left hungry there…way to crush the competition guys! I was surprised at the lack of sing-along we got with The Bad Touch playing for both the video round and answers.

Return of the Sports Round
Nate Fincher

Well the crowd spoke…we were forced to do a sports round. Haven’t done of those in a minute, have we? How do you make your QM feel stupid? Make him read shit that makes absolutely no sense to him. I don’t know what the hell and RBI is…isn’t that an outdoors store? I got shoes there once. Active Points Leader? Yeah nope, nothing…And I don’t know any hockey player not named Wayne. The closest I get to knowing anything about sports is that in men’s gymnastics they wear tights and that reminds me of superheroes, and it’s nice to look at them. Yeah, so if we’ve got sports rounds, please do NOT ask me for clarification, cuz I

Is this a bribe?
Nate Fincher

It’s a well known fact that I can be bribed with shots. Preferably tequila. Vodka and whiskey will work too…but if you really want to earn something extra $14/shot scotch will definitely do it. And if you make it a double, then my first born is yours! Well, to the beautiful blonde British lady who bought me something tasty, you can have the first two born! Silly me, thought it was tequila, but as soon as that sweet amber got to my lips I realized something was off with this “tequila”. As I tossed the double into my mouth I become conscious that I had not in fact just tossed whisky into my mouth. As I swished gently I began to feel shame as I came to the conclusion

Monkey See
Nate Fincher

Its working!! Being up front, in clear view of passerbyers help bring in nearly double what we started the night with. Unfortunately one of the larger groups was made up of more than a few out of towners, but the locals are definitely interested in coming back since their regular Tuesday night trivia has been cancelled. Sorry not sorry… Since we had a bunch of newbies, there was a little confusion coming into mid rounds. Especially with that crazy music round! I still don’t get the connection between the lyrics and the song choice…of was the complete randomness part of it? No one knows… Thank goddess the next confusing round was 50/50, it wasn’t

Birthday Buddies
Nate Fincher

Its cool enough when you meet someone with the same birthday as you, and its even rarer when it’s the exact same, month day and year…tonight was one of those rare times. Met a gal tonight at trivia who had the egggggggzakt birthday as me AND, she tells me that if she’d been born a boy, her parents would have named her Nathan! HOW AMAZEBALLS IS THAT! I hope she comes back. I want to be her new bestie so bad. At least I know I’ll never forget her birthday. Andrea, my birthday buddy, I hope you come back and visit us again next week… This week was also our first week up in the front of the bar. We’re no longer in the dark, cave like, back room known

The Final Boss: Night Three of Training for Substitute Quizmaster Francis
Francis

Official Substitute Quizmaster Francis Pastorelle here!  Tonight was the final stage of my training to join the esteemed ranks of Geeks Who Drink.  I had already survived the first stages of initiation (obtained the rare blue flower from the League of Shadows, snatched the Kokiri Emerald from the bowels of the Deku Tree, did my trainer’s laundry for six months), so hosting my first solo pub quiz gig was no problem, right?  With the esteemed Nate Fincher as my teacher, I was feeling confident.  I only fear-vomited twice! Earlier in the day, I had posted on Facebook asking for some friendly faces to pad

Tag Team
Nate Fincher

Tonight was the first night of training for our new Quizmaster Apprentice. So far, so good! Just gotta get him to sloooooooooow down, but I think that’s the same problem everyone has when they first start out. Even I was just clippin along last night and started the round Francis was supposed to be reading. Some of these rounds were particularly fun tonight. Doctors and rejection; postmodern jukebox; Marquis de Sade…and Pat Sajak’s birthday. There was a little confusion about whether or not Watson was the medic or was it Mr. Freeman…mainly the confusion was on my part. Guess that means I really need to catch up on Sherlock! I have no idea why I stopped watching,

Leeloo Multipass
Nate Fincher

That picture the dog (boxer?) dressed up as Leeloo has got to be one of the best pet costumes, ever. You can just feel the shame that dog is experiencing, that look on it’s face…price less. For round 6, being based on “Trumpets, Crumpets and Strumpets”, I’d kinda expected more questions on prostitution. I’m with Amnesty International, decriminalize sex work! Countries around the world have seen less violent sexual crimes where prostitution is legal and regulated by some sort of agency. Don’t believe international reports? Well look at Rhode Island. Until 2009 sex work was technically LEGAL (as long as they were off the streets, not pimpin,

If…
Nate Fincher

If you ever want to guarantee you’ll win, make sure no other teams show up…just you and a buddy (or two) and you guys can play individually and take home all the prizes! How’d that be for a Tuesday date night! SCORE!! Luckily that didn’t happen because people finally started arriving at 7:56… I’m so glad people showed up too, cuz I was really starting to think I wasn’t going to get to say “For Rectal Use Only” into a microphone. Y’all know how much I love saying weird shit into the mic. I was a little blabby last night on the mic. I kept dropping toooootally obvious hint at shit, but these college kids these

Back to Normality
Nate Fincher

Well…that’s subjective. Yeah the quiz itself was classic in its form. No weird new (but also pretty cool) rounds, like last week’s raise the bar round. Just normal rounds 1-8. So normal in fact some were confused. One quizzer actually asked during round 8 “what’s the topic?”…uh…Random Knowledge. It was priceless. However round 2, the round on covers, that was kinda offensive! Proof you shouldn’t go messing with a good thing. You cannot top a David Bowie song by covering it! Not everything needs to be converted into elevator music, no matter how in it is. Thank you Geeks Who Drink for educating us all on these covers

Now I’m a foodie so I’m like, ok, I can get down with this. I’m willing to try llama milk, and come on who doesn’t like a milkshake!? So we’re wrapping up the break, goin thru the team names and we get to Llama Milkshake thinking these people gotta have a great story behind this name. Its either gonna be a delectable dessert or disturbingly disgusting. So I ask, tell me more…they respond… “That’s the name of our goats.” Goats…they named one goat, Llama, and one goat, Milkshake. Llama milk is nowhere near this situation…oh thank goddess, I was a little leery of trying milk of llama. The rest

Oregonians and Newsletters

They don’t mix. Or maybe its Geeks and newsletters? I dunno, but what really gets me is why people don’t want to sign up for hints, and the chance to win more cool free shit! People message me on Facebook all the time wanting clues, hints, and answers for the rounds, but when they’re given the opportunity to go get them, all of a sudden it’s too much work.

I’m really proud of my company for showing some love to Alexis Arquette this week. She was such a sensational person, a beautiful creature, a fun soul, and scary freak. And that’s just the Alexis we’ve seen in the media. Now, I’ve been a fan of hers for a while and I’m always surprised when I meet someone who even knows who she is…I can’t bring myself to use past tense yet…so for Geeks Who Drink to honor her like they have with other recently deceased celebrities really brings a tear to my dry eye, and a warmth to my cold black heart.
