Thanks for the Compliments on my Beach Hair!
J9

Did anyone else notice me getting redder throughout the night? No, I wasn't blushing – just the sunburn setting in. That's what I get for spending all afternoon in the sun swimming with sea turtles and lying in the sand. Lucky we live Hawaii! We had a bunch of first-timers last night, so thank you all for spending your Sunday evening with me. One of those teams, Wet Dream Catchers, even won third place! Piglet 4 Prez took second and #boycotthawaii finished in first place, missing only one point in R8! I was very impressed. Honorable mention goes out to my favorite team name of the night, 4 pours and 3 Beers Ago.

Why You All Complaining About Losing an Hour?
J9

Did everyone reset their clocks? How does that work, btw? I've never lived in a state with Daylight Savings Time, seems like a silly practice. Any-hoo, we had a super chill, quiet Sunday night – which was fantastic since some of us were pretty worn out from an amazing Kona Brewer's Festival on the Big Island. The night livened up a bit with the Honolulu Festival fireworks show, and a second place tie! First timers Team Jay kicked ass last night and easily took first place. Festivus for the Rest of Us (it's March, people!) and Piglet 4 Prez tied in second. Both were way off with the tie breaker question but Festivus was

Killer Tomatoes vs. Grapes of Wrath
J9

No drunken screaming. No hecklers. No Tom Brady Bunch. It was a weird night, but definitely an enjoyable one. Classic Novels as Described by Someone Who Hasn't Read Them was a hit – although I'm still scratching my head about how so many teams thought Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is a classic novel. First time winner Piglet for President (Piglet btw is a rescue bulldog who can regularly be found in the dog-friendly beer garden) took an early lead and maintained it all night long. March Sadness was a few usual team members short, but still mustered into second place. Muddle Me This, Nate, after a win last week, came in third. Props to

And the Award Goes To....
J9

Me! I can't believe it! I want to thank GWD for giving me this amazing opportunity. And of course I must thank my parents for always believing in my love of the spotlight and I can't forget my fifth grade teacher who gave me my first starring role as Dorothy in the school production of the Wizard of Oz. Thank you to my husband and dear friends, you are my rocks! This award really belongs to all of you little people I left behind on my way to the top...aaaaand enough of that. So it was Oscars night (NO SPOILERS! I still haven't seen who won!) and we had some special prizes for those who knew their Oscar trivia. EGOTing won the award for best team name and only team

Don't F*%@ with the QM
J9

Thanks for joining me for another awesome Sunday night of quiz! We started with fourteen and finished with eleven, which was much better than last week! Of course we all nearly cheered when obnoxious Cheater McCheaterson and friends finally moved on to the next bar (who couldn't even cheat well enough to get out of last place, haha!). We had some perfect and near perfect scores in all the odd rounds, evens were another story. My favorite was the apropos R7 – do we always remember or always forget what happened in Sweden? So we finished off with a first place tie between 3 Couples and a Baby and Don’t Call Me Orange, I’m Peach (my

Where Did Everybody Go?
J9

So R1 started with 10 teams. By the end of R6 we were down to only 5, and then Quizlamic State (my fave team name of the night) went ahead and added people to their team, thus being disqualified and leaving us with four eligible teams. (I know counting is hard, but come on people, nine?!? Really?!?) I hope you weren't scared away by O-Zone, because they are totally awesome and you all needed to hear that song in its entirety. I know, I butchered the answers in R5 since I couldn't name half the celebrities, but every team got all 8 correct that round! And my trainee was awesome, so what did everyone have to do that was more important than quiz? You ditchers missed out on Jolly

Everything is Awful
J9

As if the Super Bowl's insane and incredibly disappointing ending weren't bad enough, the sadists at GWD forced us to experience the most heart wrenching audio round ever. Not cool! Scores were a bit low this week but incredibly close throughout the night. Their team names were a bit different, but the top three teams of last week placed in the same positions this week. Unlike their idol, The Record Breaking Tom Brady Bunch finished in third. My favorite team name of the night, Tom Brady Still Sucks, beat the Bunch to place second and Go Niners! came in first. I'm on double duty this week so come see me Tuesday at Honolulu Beerworks at 7:00

Baby it's Cold Outside, but not as Cold as the Beer
J9

Aloha, friends! Brrr, it was cold night in Waikiki (69 is cold for HI) – as cold as the hearts of the cut-throat competitors! Haha! Anyway, thanks for coming out to play with me. Teams did great in the R2 audio round and knew their sports and balloons, but then things started to fizzle out in R5, R6, and R7. Booking Off earned every point available in R1, R2, and R3, paving the way for an easy victory as the number one team. Anyone but the Patriots secured second place with The Tom Brady Bunch trailing behind in third. Will these two teams face off again next week, or will one be too depressed? I'm pretty sure that quiz is a great way

Winds of Change
J9

It was a very windy Sunday in Waikiki but with those winds came a new quiz champion. Nearly every team had the maximum number of players and the competition was pretty amazing, with just one or two points separating the top scores throughout the game. The teams scored some mega points by jokering Round 3 and being super confident in their answers and turning them in early for two points. Trivial Carnage came in third place and for the first time since I’ve been a QM we had a tie for first! The teams tied again in sudden death but the lightening round put Fuck, I Knew That firmly in first place with The Tom Brady Bunch settling for second. (of course they already had a good day with the

Three Day Weekends Make Life Worth Living
J9

Aloha! We had an amazing night quizzing down at the Brew Co. tonight! The place was packed and the competition was fierce. Our top five teams were separated by only 3 points going into R7, but as usual some smartly used jokers thinned the pack. Our third place finisher was It's My Mother's Fault, followed by My Sebastian's Not So 'Lil in second place, and No Parking Zone sailed into first thanks to a highly successful R8. OK! (or is it O-Tay!?) had the most fun despite missing out on third place by only one point. If you are as lucky as me and get to celebrate MLK Day free from work, then I hope

WE'RE BACK!
J9

We took a two-week hiatus but we are back in full swing for 2017 at Waikiki Brewing Company. We had eight fabulous rounds of quiz last night, with strong showings in nearly every round. Ron Swanson was a hit, as I knew he would be, and we had some new teams finish in top positions. The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers finished in third, with Make Trivia Great Again, our visitors from the north (Canada), edging into second place and Carl Ditched Us taking that sweet number one spot. Starting last night, I am awarding my favorite team name of the night with fun prizes. Last night's winner was the Ronda Rousey Thank You Tour.

Hoppy Holidays
J9

It was another fun night down at the Waikiki Brewing Company! The patio was packed and we had a few more teams than usual, which made for some fierce competition. Unsurprisingly, Frankles pulled off the win with the use of the Joker in Round 8. First time players at this venue, Hookers Don’t Snuggle, came in second while Just Cuddlers finished in third. Team Buffalo and Buttafucco partied a little too hard earlier in the day and quit after Round 2, which was probably for the best. My favorite team name of the night was You Serious, Clark?, and with that I’m going to go watch Christmas

Ding Ding Ding went the Trolley
Renee

We actually had Trolley bell accompaniment as the Waikiki Trolley’s rolled festively and (noisily) outside. Thanks for having me fill at the Waikiki Brewery – I always like a chance to try out new drinks and see new people. Tonight our “professional” Honolulu trivia team, I’m only Kidding took first, with Brew Crew only ONE POINT behind. Strong showing from two man crew “2016 Lumps of Coal” in third place proving that crack teams don't need a lot of players. After this year, I do think that everyone in the US is getting (metaphorical) lumps of coal.  But I always like to shout out my favorite team

Audio is Back!

Aloha! It was a rainy night in Honolulu (we seem to be having a lot of those lately), but our loyal quiz players braved the wet to test their knowledge.  The best news of the night? Audio rounds are back! I can now use music while speaking and won't blow out anyone's eardrums due to feedback screeches! The Tom Brady Bunch had a strong showing tonight, increasing last week's third place position to place second this week. However, our previously undefeated team (having come in second last week) came back with a vengeance to retake first place. Oh, Stop Me reclaimed the champion position with 74 points. Rounding out third place was Dammit I Forgot

TECHNOLOGY IS A BLESSING AND A CURSE
J9

Aloha! The team name that truly embodied the night's pub quiz was Make Audio Rounds Great Again. We tried something new with the audio set-up which resulted in everyone hearing me on the microphone much better than prior weeks, but unfortunately prevented me from playing the audio rounds. We made due with some Emergency Rounds and I will endeavor to fix the set up for the next quiz! The dramatic ending of the Sunday Night Football game set the mood for the night as the bar was crowded and rowdy. In a very exciting turn of events, our undefeated team, McManus F'ing Wide Left, was unseated from the throne by the Humuhumunukunukuapua‘as!

Aloha, friends! Well, it was my debut night at the Waikiki Brewing Company and I'm gonna call it a win. It was a laid back Sunday night, but the competition was fierce throughout the beginning rounds. Everyone gambled with points in the Two for the Money Round 3, and a few struggled to know their Shoes in round 4, but teams came back strong and identified the Salty Dogs in the Visual Round and few teams were tripped up by films described by lymerics in the Films from Nantucket Round 6. The Nintendo-ized songs in Round 2 were definitely a crowd favorite. Heptapods played well, but finished in third; while I Drink Therefore I Am secured second place with an
