Jamie is a Rockstar, and Zoe’s Resting
QM Preston

Wow! Tonight had a setup ready for some problem solving practice. Thank you to everyone for being patient as we ironed out some audio challenges. Y’all are the best! There is only one person in the world that may be slightly better, and she showed up to help deliver on your quiz demands. Who is this magical, rocking, and cool individual? None other than Quizmistress Jamie! Be as thankful as I to know she’ll be back next week, too!   After eight grueling rounds testing your brains and watching several teams feel themselves up to find their xiphoid, Venmo Me @BrandonISherman -- I Have Student Loans claims 1st by winning

United Airlines Fight Crew
Quiz Mistress Zoe

(Blog name still valid from last week) Monday night I think we can all agree the writers hit our erogenous zone. Round 2’s covers hurt all of our ears and all non-players had to suffer through it with us. We survived – and will live to tell the tale. We have 7 teams – bringing your chances of winning something up to almost a whopping 50%! I mean, I believe all of you are winners, I just can’t give you all gift cards… but you can have my love. Which is mainly expressed via sarcasm, and unoriginal (but caring) insults. Some of you are just easier targets *cough* Bravehorse and Donkey Show *cough.* After Last Week, You Can Only Go Up From Here -

When in United, You Don't Talk about United
Quiz Mistress Zoe

New Rule: Zoe does not touch Preston’s laptop during quiz. Twice I tried to adjust something (i.e. Sound) and the whole thing disconnected from the screen and logged off. What can I say, I have a way with computers. This is why I can’t have nice things. Interesting end to the evening, where we had a 3-way tie for third place. Sudden death round was 1 question. That question was to guess the number of times “jump” is said in the House of Pain song “Jump Around.”* The laziest thing I heard this evening was a quizzer ask me to take their answer sheet (when I was walking by) at the end of a round. I took the sheet, but reminded him we had a bonus

Grab Her By the Fillibuster and Give Her the Nuclear Option
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Last night was the NCAA finals so we were shuffled to the right hand side of the bar. I didn't realize how many of our teams like sportsball! Of note, our reigning second place team of two weeks Bravehorse and Donkey Show was absent. Given that they're our token Sports/Bro team I'll let it slide. They're probably just studying up for future Basketball questions. In their absence we did have a team named McBroDude, which I am grateful. Otherwise there would have been a Bro-void. Though I don't think any teams got a perfect score on our "sports" question on round 8 related to Air Bud movies. Don't worry, you didn't miss out on anything except that there's clearly a desire for an Air Bud Hockey

Unicorn on the Cobb
Quiz Mistress Zoe

I stay out too late, got nothing in my brain. That’s what people say. Mhmm. One of the great philosophers of our time has said the haters going to hate hate hate hate. The last sentence was yes, indeed a quote from Senator Elizabeth Warren. Though the reason tonight we had half our normal numbers was due to an Amazon event. I guess I’ll just have to shake it off. Though now I know at least half of you aren’t Amazon employees! Well. I especially know that c.diff is made up of all health care professionals. All (but one) work for Fred Hutch. Apparently, he was only there because he was “with me” according to one player and “only a paramedic” according

Heres Russia's Number, So Comey Maybe?
Quiz Mistress Zoe

As much shit as I give Bravehorse and Donkey Show – I am so proud of them for finally landing a spot in the top three! I feel like every bar who plays Geekswhodrink need to have a token ‘Bro’ or ‘Sports’ team. I think we all know what team that is at Bravehorse Tavern. Thankfully they finally took my advice and jokered the right round. On that note – I do want to let you all know that I notice when teams are over 6 people. If that’s the case, I let the team know they are not eligible for prizes OR in the event you are a team of “6” people (in which some people have a +1 who is “not playing”) I am happy to keep you keep

Happy Hour is My New Healthcare Plan
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Fantastic turn out last night! Since the side area had a reservation we had some overflow on our side but things cleared out shortly before quiz started. This is the SECOND consecutive week that our normal champs have been bumped out of first place. Last week (though I was sick) they got third, and this week they got fifth. I believe this is the first week I’ve ever seen them NOT in the top three. So that means everyone else is bringing fierce competition! I’m so proud of you all. This week’s rounds included Who Will Save Us, Your Mom Is a Cinematic Travesty, Tic-Tac-No, and Watch for a Breaking Glass. Because I’m sadistic – I need to remind you all that

Coming in at the Last Possible Second
QM Preston

Greetings, Brave Horse Quizers! Tonight was a little different as I got to step out of the Scorekeeper role in order to be Quizmaster. Cool stuff for me; and, I hope so for you, too. Special props to Yevgeniy Tikhonov for helping moderate tonight’s competition.   Taking this week’s top prize was Jeff B Escalating In My Pants. Curious how they would have finished if going with their original team name of JonBenet Ramsey? Sometimes, karma can be a bitch, so good thing they didn’t chance it.   Only one point separated the fearsome duo – Cake. Traveling from Salt

Air Bud for Best Picture
Quiz Mistress Zoe

This evening we had intense competition with first place going to Moonlight-ing as La La Land second to The Vindicated Steve Harvey's and third to Panda Kisses. I was mostly surprised that there were not team names related to the Oscars! Though my favorite team this evening is “Air Bud for Best Picture.” Still can’t believe that it wasn’t even nominated. Talk about unfair Oscars without diversity. The dog worked really hard to give us a moving experience. Tonight we had rounds on Herstory, Bork to Bork Hits, Hey God Would You Mind Sorting These People Out, and Could You Direct Me to Where the Neon Lights Are Bright. I felt like the music round was popular tonight,

404: Ellen Page Not Found
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Looks like we’ve increased our team out yet again with a solid 23 teams this evening! First place went to BōliNG Grön Mussaker (Bowling Green Massacre in Swedish) winning by a mere ONE point putting Milo Yiannopo-Losing My Job in second place. Congrats to You’re a Quizzard Harry for locking down third place for a second consecutive week. We had a number of other Swedish themed team names including We Stand With Sweden and Ikea Issues. Thematically appropriate we also had 404: Ellen Page Not Found. My heart though was with my favorite team name this evening as The Node it Alls. For those of you who don’t know – though I’m a Quiz Mistress at night

Ladies, Protect Your Ethiopian Tubes!
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Thanks for coming back this week to explore our new set up at Bravehorse Tavern. The biggest disappointment about the new set up is that because of where I’m now physically located it’s harder to eavesdrop on weird team conversations. Some of you are friends, others are there with their coworkers, and there is even a meetup group. However, sometimes when I overhear conversations I try to figure out WHAT kind of relationship you have, because I definitely wouldn’t share some of those details with my colleagues… I’ll spare you the details but some of you have some juicy gossip! Tonight marks our second week on the other side of Bravehorse – and things

My Milkshake Brings All the Quizzers to the Bar
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Thanks everyone for coming last night despite our mini Snowmaggedon. It was our first night on the main side of the bar and you were all patient through the tinkering of sound and fine tuning of our changes! I want to give a HUGE shout out to Preston - one of our other Quiz Masters who showed up just to help with the smooth transition. He is AMAZING - dedicating his time for free so if you see him don't hesitate to buy him a beer. Tonight we had THIRTEEN teams despite our weather conditions! Makes team names like Workweek Hustle seem all too real. Hopefully next week we'll see how close we can get to 20. We had a little chatter from non players tonight but if we get a larger turnout

Dude, Where's My Visa?
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Thanks everyone for coming tonight! Tonight’s quiz is in Memorandum of Joshua Rodman, who passed away recently. He was on my pub quiz team I played on for a few years. RIP. In Quiz We Trust. On a lighter note, as I mentioned – we’re going to have some big changes happening next week and I hope you’re all as excited as I am. We will be meeting on the other side of the restaurant, prizes are increasing from $50 for first and $25 for second TO $100 for first, $50 for second and $25 for third! We’ll also be switching sound and video systems. I ran over set up with the staff after quiz so things should run smoothly next week. Tonight we had rounds on

Sean Bean is Always the Answer
Quiz Mistress Zoe

In an unexpected turn of events this evening Twitlers Alternative Facts went from middle of the pack to first after jokering round eight! Something something the tortoise and the hare, I feel like there is a moral here but I was never much one to pay attention when there’s something shiny in sight. We had a lot of team names with Fact’s, which made grading difficult because I wasn’t sure if “(Y)our Wrong Answers Are Just Alternative Facts.” Touche guys… touche. This week we had rounds on Celebrities Doin’ it, Comma Chameleon, Take Me Out, and Second-Guess yourself. Which are just as cryptic as they sound, but there are always some good puns

Twilight Zone: Inauguration Special
Quiz Mistress Zoe

It was so good to be back at Bravehorse Tavern for another exciting adventure of PUB QUIZ! It’s been 4+ weeks since we’ve met, due to every holiday and long weekend being on a Monday night. Don’t fret though, we’re back in action with no foreseeable breaks. Please do check to see what Monday night email list you are on – if it is not Bravehorse Tavern, but let’s say Monday night for Blue Star, you will not receive notifications if quiz is canceled. Please make sure you check – and if you have questions or want to get on the Bravehorse list, let me know! Congrats Twilight Zone: Inauguration Special for snagging first, and the Misfits for taking

The One Where I Don't Get the Final Fantasy XV Reference
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Congratulations “It's all Russia's Fault” for snagging first place this evening and props to Merry Quizmas for sneaking up to second place in the last two rounds! This evening we covered rounds on Six Truths and a Lie, Justin to Jesus, Godspeed, and But Seriously what’s the deal with Grape Nuts? Keep in mind this is a national quiz – so though questions on Boeing and Microsoft seem to be gimme’s to you – next time we have questions about stuff on the east coast you’ll know how dumb we seem to them as they seem to you this evening (assuming they don’t get the questions correct). Then again we have Bill Gates and Macklemore. What else could
