Of Course You're Right! Fast Times at Ridgemont High Was Made in 1999!
Avram

Seven teams came out to face off against each other, and myself, at Hideout Brewing Company to see who would be the best at Geeks Who Drink Monday night.   The last question of the night was an interesting answer bonanza. First of all, no team came up with the full four names...but then again, no team came up with answers that did not make any sense. A lot of teams put Will Smith down as an answer and that was a great guess. He's been making movies for the past two decades and we remember a lot of them...but I think people forgot about the money-making movies of Samuel L Jackson. I mean, he's in two Iron Man movies, two Avengers movies,

I'll call Burt Ward, I know HE'S not busy!
Avram

When you have a lower-than-average turnout at Geeks Who Drink quiz, I tend to get more personal, more interactive, more goofy, more silly and more bombastic than average because I want to reward those who came out with a good show as well as a good quiz.   Each team was having a nice time playing along Monday night and there was a lot of joking about and one-liners, but sometimes the funniest things that happened were physical bits and they were so funny, I really can't explain them.   They were very, very, very funny though.   The Jumping Jackoffs won the night with a nice lead thanks to

One Perfect Round, Two Dollar Spins and One Awesome Bonus Spin
Avram

HOLY COW! We packed it to the max at Hideout Brewing Co. Monday night! 8 teams, with every seat taken, came out to play Geeks Who Drink and BOY did they come to play!   Cake Day Music Round brought out the music ringers. Almost every team had a score of 14 or 15 jokered. One team, with the big music ringer Lisa on their squad, had a 32 point Round 2 thanks to a perfect answer sheet. Curse you Lisa and your amazing music knowledge!   But that's not the only ringers I had Monday night. I also had chemistry ringers too because a lot of teams knew their natural gasses. Video round was kinda hard,

Sorry Doug, But You're Barely the 5th Sexiest Man In This Room
Avram

Seven teams decided to start the week out right by playing Geeks Who Drink at Hideout Brewing Co.   To say we had a good time would be an understatement.   There was an awesome energy in the air during the night. Maybe it was because there was some very outspoken players Monday night, maybe it was because there was a whole new team who had never played before, maybe it was because one team was so close to getting the $1.00 mark on the wheel, maybe it was because we were training a new host, Jen, on Monday night. There are a lot of factors; all of them played a part in a loud, thunderous night of laughs

Chelsea's Birthday, a Dane Cook Impression, Two Perfect Scores and a Sloth Monster
Avram

Despite the beautiful weather in the evening, six teams decided to stay inside and compete for 1st Place at Hideout Brewing Co. for another Geeks Who Drink quiz. These are my kind of people.   Like Chelsea; I like her and I am very glad she is my friend. Monday was Chelsea's birthday, so I bought her a drink...and asked everyone to sing along to 'Happy Birthday' at the beginning of the quiz. It was so cute and embarrassing; I was happy to do it for my friend. In fact, because of hosting Geeks Who Drink, I have become friends with Chelsea, Zack, Paul, Katie, Lauren, Dug, Diedre, Lisa, Alyssa, Zach, Matthew, Patrick

Quizzing in the Rain -or- Why Can't the New Guy Find the Submit Button??
Doug

   The pouring rain didn’t hinder the crowd and spirits were high. The match was tight as few teams opted to joker the second round (music) and instead many opted to double their score for their third round, which was a special 16 point “Alpha and Omega” event. This strategic play paid off for each team involved and kept the match close throughout the rest of the game. Pulling into the final round only 6 points separated first and third place.    As the final round was tallied the competition got tighter as a mere one point now decided first from third. Cheese Sweats pulled out a tight one with 85 points, leaving Salem Bitch Trials and Ice Bank

Fight choreography by Dom Deluise!
Avram

It's Spring Break! Woo-hoo! Time to party...and by party, I mean play Geeks Who Drink at Hideout Brewing Co. 7 teams came inside from the down pouring rain to play the quiz.   Here's how rainy it was: we had to move some tables around the area because parts of the area had leaks in the roof, so we had to make sure players were not getting soaked. Ah springtime.   So, while the night was happenin', we were doing some extra business. Geeks Who Drink has hired one of our Monday regulars, Doug, as a new host who will be starting his hosting duties at a new location in southern Kent County at the end of April. Doug spent the night trying out his hosting

Imposter; just a middle-class white kid from Toronto
Avram

Six teams came out to Hideout Brewing Company to play Geeks Who Drink pub quiz to start their work week out right.   I love "This Day in Overplay" in Round 2. It's always interesting to see what songs were the biggest hits from years and decades ago. There were several songs on Monday night's list that I love to listen to in my car. Falco's one hit wonder song "Rock Me Amadeus" was on the list. I recently watched a video from a Youtuber I like a lot who goes by the name of "Todd In the Shadows". He did a video essay on Falco and it turns out that I like Falco's other songs more than Rock Me. We also got Snow's one hit

Come for the bad Marlon Brando impression, Stay for the Stravinsky round!
Avram

Another Monday night and another five teams tested their knowledge at Hideout Brewing Company at Geeks Who Drink.   Two Ed Sheeran questions in a quiz? You bet! Teams not remembering to put Kiki Dees name in the artist column when we play "Don't Go Breaking My Heart"? Of course. Every team getting 8 out of 8 on the visual round? Not common, but the magic was in the air for Monday night.   If I had put all the money in my pockets on whether the teams would have picked the sports category or the Igor Stravinsky round...I would have lost at least $50 Monday night. I guess the classics are more popular than

Diamonds, Dildos and a West Point Grad Inventing "Jacking Off"
Avram

Another five teams decided to start their week off right by coming out to Hideout Brewing Co. and playing Geeks Who Drink.   We had a question tonight that involved wording about Mariah Carey having a high voice. Whenever I hear that, I think back to my good friend in elementary school David Penn and a sketch he used to do. Basically it was about a guy who couldn't get his dog to respond to commands, so the narrator told him to use "The Mariah Carey Dog Whistle". He used it, the dog came...but so did every dog, cat, raccoon, squirrel, bear and flesh-eating animal within a 20 mile radius. I'm not sure if it was a sketch he invented

Let Them Eat Dildos For Dinner
Avram

Six teams came out to Hideout Brewing Co. Monday night to play another exciting night of Geeks Who Drink.   I love the fact that the quizmakers made a music round that made you spell out "Weird Al" for the last answer. At first, I was a little disappointed by the song being "The Saga Begins", but then I realized that was a perfect song 8 because it is a title that is not easy to remember. I'm sure most non-Al fans just call it The Star Wars song.   On a side note, the Katy Perry song is just "E.T." If you ever spell it out long form, you are incorrect. It is just "E.T."   I LOVE Round 3 list

What Does the Fox Say When He Has a Cold?
Avram

Monday Night. 5 teams. Geeks Who Drink. Hideout Brewing Co. Nothing different there.    What was different this time is that the host was still recovering from a cold, so instead of being a hot schmuck, the host had to whisper the questions out to the contestants. Very happily, everyone was very accommodating and was nice and quiet for the host so he didn't have to raise his voice to the point of straining it.   Everyone loved the music round involving the Swedish Chef. We almost had a perfect Round 2, but most teams forgot about Ylvis having the one-hit wonder "What Does The Fox Say?". As of this writing, the video

She Blinded Me With New Lighting In the Game Room
Avram

What an awesome President's Day at Hideout Brewing Co.! They installed new lights in the game room, so it was quite bright for the five teams that played Geeks Who Drink.   Speaking of President's Day, I don't think Gerald Ford or Jimmy Carter get enough respect for all the hard work they did as Presidents of the 1970s. Sure, they were not perfect, but I think they did a good job of helping our nation and guiding us through some hard times. Also, I used to think that President George H.W. Bush got too much crap, but then I remembered he was Vice-President during Reagan's tern and at one point, he was the head of the CIA. So that guy knows/has

Because Mine's As Big As A Hat!
Avram

Another Monday, another five teams competing for the top spot of Geeks Who Drink at Hideout Brewing Company.   Here's something from last night that was note-worthy: last night, we had a team who did not know the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" or know that the band who played the song was named Nirvana. For me, that's one of those "God Damn Kids" moments you get as you get older...but it feels so weird that THAT song is over a generation old, so it is possible for younger people to not know about it. It puzzles me, but then again, the only way I know about the songs that are very popular today is if I see a Youtube personality comment

Another Monday, another five teams came out to Hideout Brewing Co. to play Geeks Who Drink.   We started the night with a moment of silence to remember all of those who lost their lives in the Bowling Green Massacre. We also remembered those who were lost during other massacres the media has ignored/not covered: *Billiards Red Massacre *Darts Orange Massacre *Shuffleboard Yellow Massacre *Rollerderby Blue Massacre *Curling Purple Massacre (happened in Canada) *Miniature Golf Indigo Massacre *Qbert

Closest Without Going Over
Avram

Another Monday, another chance for five teams to come out and play Geeks Who Drink at Hideout Brewing Company.   The music round was kinda interesting. Most people were very good at the artist's names, but not as much for the titles. I had a lot of different guesses for Aretha Franklin's Trust, but none of them were the actual title. The same was true of those who got that Iron Maiden was song #7.   Someone thought Laverne and Shirley was a spinoff of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Despite my gut reaction, I decided to let that person live. I'm not proud of that decision.   One team decided whether
