Eating Pizza & Learning About Cuba
Quizmistress KT McG

Sup nerds. Nikki left Lumpy's in my care last night, so I did my best not to let her down! You five teams that showed up are beautiful people. And now I've quizzed for some of you twice this week! Double nerds. The Guesstapo continued their streak with the win, and Dying Alone, Eaten By Cats came in second. Geek Bowl is soon, so I'm glad you guys did well! Come back next week for Nikki's triumphant return, and much thanks to Lumpy's for putting up with me this week!!

Business Time
Nikki!

Wow! What a huge group for quiz tonight. Thank you all so much for sticking with me for the longer night. It was a ton of fun! Our round 2 was a bitch (unless you were the Guesstapo, cause, you know, they know everything) but we all pulled through. Special shoutout to other former and current QM's who joined in the games tonight. For me, the highlight was our round 4 when I somehow tricked the entire bar into singing Flight of the Conchords (because It really was Business Time). I'm proud of everyone for putting up with my horrifying readings of team names, expecially The Polarican (as in Pola-rican, which is how it is spelled in the score) and If you lose,

In Which I Publicly Embarrass my Friend in Public
Nikki!

Way to go everyone! Tonight was a kick ass game. A shout out to one of my besties Joanna Johnson who was incredibly embarrassed when I started to talk about how amazing she was. I imagine when she gets back from her many auditons as a New York actor, she will not be very happy with me. Anyway, enough of that.  Congrats to The Dwarves of Mohammed for being the only group to know that it was Catherine Parr who was the final wife of King Henry VIII. Also a big thank you to everyone who laughed at my rendition of the Neil Degrasse Tyson joke from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I'm still chuckling to myself. For the win today, we had Nikki is and

Nikki!

Fun times tonight when we discussed the real questions of who really watches anything the Academy picks for Best Picture. It seems like we had a few pretentious people (says the one who will totally watch all of those movies....) Thank you everyone for putting in a great effort and a special shoutout to Ridin' Like Han...Solo for being a trooper and rockin his quiz solo and to Truseroskerne for not only coming up with a name that I could neither pronounce nor spell correctly, but also for taking second place. Chalupa Batman took their coveted third-place spot. They have been working towards that for a long time. Congrats! Also, way to go The

Good Times, good drinks
Nikki!

Thanks everyone for coming tonight. We had a great time chatting with our friends and greeting some new people as well. Spiffy Twiffy Comes Here Too made their Lumpy's debut and took our 3rd place slot. We also had some new team members to Chalupa Batman. Welcome new people. You are pretty damn awesome. Kicking ass and taking our second place slot is Lawyer Porn with our champs Guesstapo coming back to take first place after being put to second for the past two weeks. Thanks everyone and I will see you next week!

Nikki!

Welcome back from the Holiday season. It seems like everybody was ready to be back from the holiday because, I must say, the place was pumpin'! We started out with me having all kinds of problems so thanks to everyone for bearing with me through my sound and general forgetfulness. Luckily, we pulled through. I know we have a few teams that are prepping for the Geek Bowl so I am sure they loved the tough rounds that we had. On top of that, we had several first time teams to Lumpys. Welcome. Everyone did such a great job. A special fuck-you to 3 Bitter Ex-Catholics for using the more than or less than signs (<>) during our rounds, forcing me to relearn math and

Fuck you, Chris.
Nikki!

Do you know a Chris who should go fuck himself? We sure do! And they did it by taking first place. Congratulations to Fuck You Chris for beating our reigning champs who split themselves up into three teams of one person each. That didn't stop Where Smeagols Dare (Part of the Guesstapo) from taking second and The Brofessor (also part of the Guesstapo) from sneaking into third place with a tie-breaking question against Chalupa- Batman. Our final leg of the magic team Why Do I Even Try came in dead last, much to the pleasure of our team formerly named The Power of Chris Compels You who changed

Nikki!

Thanks everyone for making GWD Pub Quiz absolutely fantastic! It was a hard quiz tonight but we our reigning champs the The Guesstapo managed to make slide in for the win with our final round closely followed by Clover Cake who were able to steal Mike from The Team that Matt Dissed. Special shout out to The Green Carnations formerly known as "The Gays" who changed their name in honor of Oscar Wilde and Woo! Gurlz! for thinking that they could kick ass at our Christmas music audio round by righting in "Bing Crosby" for every other answer. We hope to see you all next week for

Nikki!

Hello all my new people, What a fantastic first night to be at Lumpys with everyone! I was not the only one to make a first appearance at the Downtown Lumpy's scene. We had The Gays make their Geeks Who Drink debut and they were fantastic. I can tell that they are going to regulars. We had a great crowd today with our reigning champs The Guesstapo for the win way ahead of everyone else and Speak of the Talmadge and But, I'm a Cheerleader tying for second place.  I must give a special shout out to The BYU Fisters of Fury for having the most clever name that every other

Si si puede!
QuizGentleman Bryton

Four 16 point rounds?! FOUR? This is madness! No! This is Lumpy's.  I was back for one more night at Lumpy's before your permanent host takes over in two weeks time. Lumpy's is always a fun time. Had some teams come late but that's okay, you still looked better than the Jacksonville Jaguars and they're disgusting split-pea/mustard colored uniforms.    I gotta say, that popup choir from Round 2 sounded pretty good. I think we should all join up. I love to sing but hate practicing and I certainly hate attendance policies. After the quiz I should have made you all sing "Kokomo" before awarding the prizes.    It

Lumpelstiltskin
Gar

Lumpions! What a wonderful time we all had! It's always a pleasure to stop by the old lumping grounds for a bite and several hundred drinks. You all provided a hell of a show, what with all the scoring of points. Scores were all over the proverbial place but ultimately, Mormons Burning Bridges left the smoldering remains of goodwill in their wake as they overtook everybody else. Close behind them, No Mo' Homo Babies. Suffer the children? More like the The children suffer am I right?! Guys? AM I RIGHT? YOU KNOW HOW MUCH VALIDATION I NEED!!!!!!!!!

Gar is an idiot man-child who likes cats, video games and beer.

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

Did we mention the cats?

Nobody Does it Better
QuizGentleman Bryton

Back at Lumpy's for another week of basement quiz action! I really dig this place and I couldn't ask for a better set of quizzers. Plus, I know that none of you are spies since y'all did so poorly on the "songs about spies" round. These are good songs people! Though I have to admit I'm also less than enthusiastic about the new Sam Smith Bond theme. I considered playing more Bond themes throughout the night but settled on Kansas instead.  What did we learn tonight? We learned that a skunk can do a handstand courtesy of Skunk Handstand (seriously, google it), and we also learned that the Green Bay Packers are not named for cheese-packing as I had thought, but

Ping Ponged to Death
QuizGentleman Bryton

Hey gang! I'm Quizgentleman Bryton, your Foster Host at Lumpy's until we find a Forever Host. If you haven't heard by now Sarah is has taken a well-deserved retirement from Geeks Who Drink. I know that kind of thing takes some getting used to but luckily the Lumpy's crowd welcomed me with open paddles. Since I don't really know any of you it's hard for me to properly troll you, but like any relationship it just takes time.  Garth Brooks is in town and he's really screwing things up for me. Traffic caused Chalupa Batman to arrive late, and Garth messed with my sound system to cause a very brief outage. You see, I was one of his friends in low places and

The Last Dance And Birthday Cake
Quizmistress SJ

Yep. Both of those things occurred tonight. It was my last night hosting at Lumpys, and it was my birthday! So, ya know, it was a twofer.   The dancing was not done by my, per se. It was a tiebreaker dance-off between regulars that are usually on the same team but decided to go head to head this evening. Master & Commander and The Last Quiz both took 3rd place, which is the real tiebreaker position for us because 2nd and 3rd have the same prize. I told Tim that it was my birthday present that he get up for the dance-off. He kindly obliged with a little nagging from the microphone. I

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'.

Another Day Another Dollar. Gettin’ It.
Quizmistress SJ

Gettin’ it. Tonight the original Guesstapo team members split up to create a challenge for themselves. Demo decided to go with one of his old standby names Where Smeagols Dare. The rest of the Guesstapo went with a good initials name the would be T.L.Si. The challenge was real. The night ended in a tie for 1st place, then a tie again after Sudden Death Round, then with a Tiebreaker question it really could have been anyone’s game. The win went to T.L.Si, though.   Chalupa Batman was my favorite team name because I love The League. They were the newest team edition.

You Wanna Know How I Know?

You wanna know how I know it’s Fall? All the peoples are back at quiz! That’s how I know. October rolls around and the teams start flooding in again. All that fun summertime stuff is over, and now you want to love me again? Huh? I would call you fair-weather friends, but since it’s going to be winter soon (to my deepest chagrin), you would be the opposite of fair-weather friends. Either way, woohoo! You’re back!   So basically, chalk another point up on the board for Fall time being the best time (and yes, I am a white woman who likes a pumpkin spice latte, but anyone who says they don’t is just straight lying.
