GWD Brings The Crowds
Liz

Hey everyone!  Happy Tuesday.  Quiz host Liz here with our recap of Monday night at Frankford Hall.  I love the patterns of attendance for our pub quiz (aka biergarten quiz).  It was a super slow Monday night, with most of our patrons out in the backyard playing ping pong or sitting around the campfire.  I even found myself wondering if we would have to cancel the quiz.  LOL!  That never happens.  All my teams rushed the door at the same time, 30 seconds before the game started, and we had a nice full house.  A big big big congratulations to all my teams, especially my regulars who come every week, even without winning anything.  We had a spirited,

Liz's Weekly Recap
Liz

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to my weekly recap of how last night at Frankford Hall went.  I prepared last night physically and mentally by wolfing down a giant pretzel with cheese sauce, super cute.  I had two sips of an Oktoberfest beer and I was READY, guys!  Any more than that and I'd be burping into the microphone.  I've been very happy with how well the past weeks have been running, I must say.  I feel like we've gotten into a great rhythm, ending on time every night, with different teams winning and new players coming every week.  Congratulations are in order to my winners, Mile High Club Solo Flyers

hey everyone, just covering for Liz this week up at Frankford Hall, where a quiz kid can be a quiz kid. Thanks to all the regulars for the warm reception. There was some stiff competition happening up there. Everyone kicked ass at the super hero round 1. It looked like everyone was using their brain for the audio round. It was like a musical connect the dots. Am I the only one that remembers when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson made like dumb family movies? What a waste! Dude is such a bad ass. But now everything is right with the world again. Not really but you know what I mean. I gotta say my favorite team of the night is the one that simply drew a picture for their team name.

The One Where Liz Figured Out Split Screens
Liz

Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday! It was really great to see all ya'll last night at Frankford Hall.  It was a fun night with lots of new folks and old regulars, which is always my favorite.  Such a good mix.  I wonder if everyone was as excited as I was about Ted setting up the split screen projection on the laptop so that I could keep our Geeks Who Drink logo projected behind me (and the visual round!) the whole night instead of having to switch back and forth!  Of course, I was completely convinced that I was projecting the answers behind me and so had to keep swiveling, but I knew I could trust everyone.  It's not like we made a pinky promise, but you

Hi friends! I am soooo glad that this week's audio round was as hilarious as it was.  So, get this: a round of Swedish chef covers of pop songs... could either be amazing, or make-your-ears-bleed bad, right?  Luckily enough for me, all my quizzlers were crying with laughter during this round.  Round Two, well done.  A hearty welcome again to Team Rocket, good friends of mine who made it out to support me!  Love you guys.  Also, I thought their team name was based off of my cat, took me half the quiz to realize that they were actually referencing Pokemon!  Smart, Liz.  Congratulations to our two winners, Mile

Back to the crowds at FH
Liz

Hey everyone!  Glad to see the numbers back up again for us at Frankford Hall :) I blame it on the absolutely gorgeous, ice cap melting weather we've been having.  Frankford Hall is such a fun bar when it's nice out, all those long benches and tables outside... I can't wait until we can have the windows open again!  Last night was a fun one, my lovely teams driving me crazy with the overtime questions.  A tie for first AND for third?   Ugh, you guys are the worst.  Just kidding!  Always makes things more interesting when we break the mold.  Big big big congratulations are in order to our winners and my new regulars :) I'll see you

Drew's First Training Night
Liz

Hello everyone!  Super fun night last night at Frankford Hall.  I was really happy to see 4 Dicks 1 Chick win first place, I feel like it's been a while for those guys so that was good to see!  Same for The B Team and Shitty Bitches, you guys are my favorites.  I always like training new faces, it breaks up the routine a little bit, so thanks Drew for that!  Next week I will also be training someone new, so you guys will all get that treat as well.  A new host for the week, a new sense of humor and a new style of doing the quiz. Also... thank you to the staff that made me eat the pork shoulder!

The One With 400 Penn Students
Liz

Here's my normal routine:  walk in, grab a beer from the bar, enjoy a bratwurst and some fries, as one does.  I admire the fire pits outside and the campfire smell, I chat with some people, I set up.  This week wasn't any different, but there was a real sense of impending doom... a private event called Feb Club, sponsored by the one and only UPenn!  Apparently there's a student group called Feb Club which sponsors nights out every night in February, at different bars across the city.  I'm not going to lie, knowing Penn students as I do (it's ok, I'm one of them) and their love of drinking and competition, I was worried for what the quiz was going to be like tonight!

The Night of the New Regulars
Liz

Hi guys!  Thanks so much for a great Monday night.  I loved seeing so many newly-familiar faces from the past two weeks or so.  I love it when the teams switch up as they do.  You know what else I love?  Seeing Meetup groups make my Quizzo night one of their activities of choice :) We had the pleasure of hosting the Meetup group Trivia Lovers, and I hope they liked what they saw and come back for more!  I was going to give them a free pretzel (sooooo good) as a special thank you for organizing the event but then they won two in the lightening rounds so... I squashed that idea! Anyways, I will see you all again in February, aka next Monday!

The One With The Surprise Prize
Liz

Hi again everybody!  Happy Tuesday!  Last night at Frankford Hall was shaping up to be BLEAK, let me tell you... it doesn't help when your boyfriend keeps asking you, "So, uh... do you think anyone's going to show up?" But show up they did, so thanks, Ted.  It started off as a quiet night at Frankford Hall due to this freezing rain and wind we've been having.  I contemplated the loyalty of my regulars as I ate my hearty German meal.  But I was never really worried, because you all have turned up in worse before, and Frankford Hall is the coziest bar in Northern Liberties :) We had a surprise third place prize tonight, as expertly worked out by Graham

The One Where Liz's Friends Surprised Her
Liz

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It's the day after yesterday!  Let me tell you all about the fantastic night of pub quiz last night.  So, full disclosure:  Frankford Hall is not the only Geeks Who Drink venue that I have worked at!  Yes, it's true!  I used to be the quiz host at Devil's Pocket, a cute lil' neighborhood pub that Pat has taken over for me.  When I worked there last year, I had a bunch of friends in the neighborhood who came every week.  Hilariously enough, they only ever won fourth place... no matter if there were four teams or twenty.  I think one week they actually won first place and they brought the house down!  Well, I'm

The One Where Liz Was Tired
Liz

Helloooooo my dear readers! Great showing last night at Frankford Hall.  I had such a great time with everyone.  Too bad my first and second place winners ducked out before I could snap their pics!  I still got some great smiling faces for you all, though, so check out the gallery for our crowd.  I was particularly happy with our attendance due to the crappy weather Philly has been having, so great job guys!  Frankford Hall is an excellent choice to warm up your little toes with some fire pits and mulled wine and cider.  Oh yeah, and to warm up your brain cells with a seriously fun quiz!  Congratulations are in order to our first and second

Liz is Back Home :)
Liz

Thank you so much everyone for the warm welcome back to Frankford Hall!!  I pretended the whole night the cheers for Penn State were really for me - and let's face it, half the time the crowd cheered I had just said something particularly witty.  The new year is a time for expressing thanks, and being grateful.  This year I am particularly grateful that we finally got a pencil sharpener, and I am not exaggerating in the slightest.  2017, come at me!! I am prepared with pointy pencils.  You're welcome, guys.  You know what was also really fun?  Having a math-themed Sudoku round, and having half the teams glare at me like "Why... is she doing this to

This blog post is dedicated to the oft-forgotten Marley
John

Howdy folks, your friendly neighborhood quizmaster John, here.  I'm posting this blog with the current title and talking points only because I'm a bit of a sadist.Last night was truly fun, I won't lie.  We started out with night with 12 teams, which was just incredible.  I did have to tone down some of the language and subject matter due to the age of some of our bar patrons, but I like to think it didn't affect the quiz to greatly.  Luckily, bed time came, and several of our teams, leftovers from a Frankford Hall event, ended up turning in for the evening. The talking points I mentioned above?  I'm referring to my favorite part of the night, of course.

Frankford Hall's Night At Fette Sau
John

Howdy folks, it's your local substitute Quiz Master John here with your blog post!     Last night was a fun night, I can't lie.  Due to a private event at Frankford Hall, the quiz was bumped to next door at Fette Sau and, I have to say, I was super impressed by the brisket.  That stuff was off the chain.  But back to the quiz!  The venue change may have caused a bit of confusion for some, or so I imagine, because we had a grand total of 3 teams show up.  Regardless the number of teams we had, it was a fun and hard fought competition between our teams, harder fought than the Poppe Tarte' revolution!  We had some fantastic subject

Santa Came to Frankford Hall?!
Liz

There wasn't an Eagles game last night, so that means I didn't have to compete with any football!  We had a great showing for the pub quiz.  You know what I especially love?  This is like the third time that I've had an old player from a different bar come up because they recognized me, and that is such a good feeling.  Especially since my old bar, Devil's Pocket, is on the other side of the city!  The quiz was very successful, we kept it fun, despite me showing up without my computer.  Seriously, who does that?? The one piece of equipment that I needed, and I left it at work.  I think it's because I just finished finals, and my brain is officially
