OMG, TIM! YOU KNOW THE RULES!!!
Miranda

Hello, hello, hello! Wow! What a crowd tonight! There were quite a lot of first time quizzers! And the triumphant return of Tim! Man, I came down really hard on him about being a rule breaker, but, unfortunately, an example needed to be made… He took it well. I felt bad afterwards & told him he’s allowed to come over & play with my dogs anytime he wants.   It has been a long week. Quiz was crazy, but a welcomed distraction! I’m glad that you all listened and respected my shushing of you. I don’t want to come off

When life gets you down, QUIZ!
Miranda

Hello, hello, hello! Well, my Thursday started off wretched, like, nearly in tears, as I learned of the passing of Chris Cornell, right here in our state, near miles from us. Horrible. I spent the day listening to his music, listening to people talk about him & his music, and wallowing. But, I didn’t want to bring that energy to the quiz. So, I put 3 of his songs- one Soundgarden, one Audioslave, one solo- on my playlist. But I went home after work, played with my dogs for

Post-Punk Shade & Sweet Muppet Fashion
Miranda

Hello, hello, hello! It’s been 2 weeks since we hosted quiz at B. Nektar due to their May the 4th event, and I really missed you guys! Especially bartender Dave and his never-ending snark. And never-ending music knowledge! He used to live in California & he knows a ton of people in bands. And we all know he has very strong opinions on music. But I can respect that, because I do, too! I think all of you missed this, because it happened as I was packing up all my equipment & getting ready to leave, but Dave delivered a line that inspired

Like Your Mother Likes It
Miranda

Hey, hi, hello! I hope that you all had a great week. I hope that it was easy, smooth, and that everything went well. I hope that you felt loved, satisfied with the work you accomplished, and overall happy with where your life is right now. I hope you danced, sang, laughed, the whole nine. Because isn’t that what we’re supposed to get out of life? Or at least that we experience those things so that when we hit bad times, we can remember that there were good times and that they will come again. Just remember that. If you didn’t have a good time this week, then welcome to my boat, brothers & sisters! I’m not trying to turn this into

Sweet Moses! Cleveland is Greater!
Miranda

Hello, hello, hello! So, I’m listening to the re-broadcast of a SiriusXMU show, “Coconut Radio with Jason Schwartzman”, as I write this blog. He has dedicated this episode to drummers that have inspired him. He is currently running down a very long list of songs that he wanted to play, but it would have been over 7 hours, so he had to drastically scale back. And every so often he explains something about one of the songs. I’m sitting here in admiration of his passion. It’s palpable. And it’s infectious! I want to build that playlist on Spotify & lay on the floor with my eyes closed & listen to it. Sometimes I find

Miranda

Hello, hello, B. Nektar! Well, I’ve had quite a week. Crazy, busy, sick. Ugh. Stupid cold just won’t go away! A shot of mead on top of cold medicine made for quite the experience. Corey enjoyed the level of my anger & excitedness. I was AMPED UP, that’s for sure! All while doing what I wouldn’t call my best to be respectful of the large party in the back of the bar, I mean, I guess I tried. I did try to get them to join us for the quiz. And I honored their song request. And let them sign “Happy Birthday” uninterrupted. I think that was fair. But I turned my mood around

I have made my confession, I will now take my "BOOOO"s
Miranda

Hello, hello, hello! It’s been quite a week! And we had quite an evening! We had the trainee Lauryn with us learning the lotta ins, lotta outs of the business of being a Quizmaster. I went off on a few tangents. And I admitted my disdain for “The Goonies”. Please don’t hate me. I love you. This week we pondered the effects of the housing market collapse, sang along with Fake Eddie Vedder, and explored capital cities. We discussed eyebrow care, identified our favorite kidde books-turned-films, and reached into that dusty part of your

The word itself makes some men uncomfortable.
Miranda

  Hello, hello! Another Thursday night in the books! A fair amount of new faces in the crowd, too! Meeting new people is fun! Converting them to quiz players is even more fun! Woot for noobs!   This week we synopsized movies, smashed up our ears real good, and circled the four corners. We talked about girlies things, identified movie typists, and discussed humanimals. We listened to NY-ish titles movies and made you distinguish pacts and shitty novels.   Spikey had a banner week and came out on top in first place.

Miranda

Hello, Squirrel Friends! (Get ready for many more RuPaul’s Drag Race references- SEASON 9 IS ALMOST UPON US!) So, all over the taproom are really cool wooden barrels. They serve many purposes, and, in fact, I use two of them to set up all the equipment for the quiz. Well, don’t pick a fight with one of them. You will lose like I did. It will leave you slightly bloodied about the knuckles. Shout out to Miranda (not me- THE Miranda- Marketing guru for all things B.) for helping my bandage my wounds.

Hey, hey! Wow! What a great Thursday night we had! The place was packed! I had an all around awesome day. My work lost power due to all the wind, so I got to stay home & hang out with my dog in the morning. Then, my husband & I went to go see “Logan”. IT WAS AMAZING! If you haven’t gone to see it yet, do it. If you only go to see one movie in the theaters this year, make it this!   This week we talked about our favorite gold bikini wearer, mashed up songs for quite the mind-fuck, and tested your knowledge of The Bard. We learned some news about our favorite devilock-sporting

I learned that some of the Handicapable guys work with my brother-in-law. And I was able to confirm, that, yes, all his stories are true. He and my hubs have lead quite a life! I love a crowd! I was really happy when people starting pouring in! And I got to debut the shame bell! I really hope we never have to use it.

Greeting and salutations, quiz peoples! As we descend into what I can only imagine is the inevitable future that Mike Judge predicted in Idiocracy, I hope you all are safe and continue to learn and come to quiz to flex that brain muscle! Now, on to more fun things! I have been waiting for this day for a few weeks now, for it was the day that I FINALLY got to try the Rhube Strawberg mead! It was really good! Strawberry rhubarb pie is my favorite, so this mead really hit the spot! I also tried the Spiced Cranberry Melomel and it was nice and tart and yummy!

Hey, Hi, Hello! What a wonderful Thursday evening we had! And we had a special guest this week- Alicia! She was trying her hand as a Quizmaster and I think she did pretty good! You all seemed to agree with me, so I call it a success! Thanks for being our guinea pigs! This week we talked about the Bey-by, slowed our roll in the music round, and contemplated life through the eyes of our favorite hunny lover. We brought it to the runway, identified comic-ized sequels, and tested your biblical knowledge. We heard actors acting as themselves and learned who to blame

Hello, hello, hello! Here we are, another Thursday night upon us! Thursdays are awesome for so many reasons: I get to stand up in front of all of you, berate you with questions, and swear at you if you don’t listen to me! Also, they announced the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race! My obsession with this show started almost 2 years ago, when I had just started as a scorekeeper for GWD while living in Cleveland. The QM I was working with at the time was/is obsessed with it. I had heard of it before, but I started watchin it & fell in love! And if you’re a fan, you may have noticed many
