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!
J9

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!

Shoes, Money,and Lymerics; Oh My!
J9

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

It was a quiet night…
Kathryn

Maybe it was the election or the super Super-Moon, but we were all a bit subdued tonight at Waikiki Brewing Co.  The absence of our reigning champions did give a little boost in the competition with our new first place team Anyone But The Patriots.  Sadly, ironically, painfully, etc Forever Second retained their title as… forever second.  The Tom Brady Bunch held their heads high even though Tom Brady sucks (and so do the Patriots) but they managed to score 8 points in round 5 (so did everyone else).  Jeanine did an AMAZING job taking over this crowd as a former regular and we are all excited to see her make this

The Third Place Tie That Never Was
Kathryn

Here I was, all excited and prepared to have another tie breaker at our Sunday night quiz and ready to see some blood between our Aussie visitors, The Messier Objects, and our newlyweds, The Honeymooners, when Lo! The newlyweds had already left during round 8 to enjoy their newly married life (those of us who are aged and bitter know it is a joyous time that should not be taken lightly).  So the honor of the night for third place went to Messier, who was a delightful duo that I personally enjoyed getting to chat with after the quiz.  Lasers & Space & Stuff (pew pew!) stayed right on the heels of I Can’t Do Math

It was a dark and stormy night, a night much like this one….
Kathryn

Our Halloween Eve Sunday Quiz was eerily quiet and somber.  Perhaps it was because of the New Moon or perhaps it was because everyone was still recovering from the prior night’s Halloween parties.  All we do know is our Quizzers would never be the same… Because tonight’s trivia was HARD!!  Round 6 on Halloween Costumes left everyone scratching their heads with most teams only getting 3 of the questions correct.   A real witches brew is bubbling, though, as our unseated champions, Cubs Suck, are starting to realize GROSS (Get Rid Of Slimey girlS) is closer and closer to stealing the title.  After last week’s

Hecklers, Yelling & Sudden Death, oh my….
Kathryn

Sunday’s quiz brought some unique and fun new challenges to our regular quizzers and newcomers.  To start, our outdoor venue finally led to the first walk by heckler who decided he would yell the answer to a question and then expected praise.  The quizzers were not pleased to have effectively lost a point as everyone was given a go on that question.  Then, Question 8, Round 8, RANDOM KNOWLEDGE and the batteries died in the wireless mic.  The owner was quick to replace the unit but not before we decided it was just best for me to stand in the middle of the venue and yell out the 4 part question.  Finally, we had our first SUDDEN DEATH at Geeks Who Drink Waikiki

Ohana Means Family
Kathryn

And Family means we don't watch movies about divorce/fighting so Round 7 was the lowest scoring round of the night.  I mean, if you have to do poorly at any round, Sunday's Round 7 on fighting couples and divorce is a great topic to be in the dark about.  For the first time here at GWD Waikiki Brewing our leading champions had a real fight for the finish.  The Tom Brady Bunch stayed on them all night but once again Whoopie, I'm Snoopy aced Random Knowledge and came out on top.  Mum and Me Do Hawaii was a lovely mother daughter duo all the way from Down Under who won a bonus round and a pint glass to take back home.

Round 4 - Fight!
Kathryn

We saw a resurgence in our teams this past week!  16 teams who put on a strong fight for first place.  Field of Taste came in last but they deserve a giant round of applause:  a couple from Sweden coming to share their last evening in Hawaii with us, sticking it out until their shuttle arrived.  Cao Pies resorted to pleas by round 3 and remained dedicated to begging for points although they were never the lowest score in a single round.  This Beer Works Too showed up strong, leading the way all the way to Round 7.  An early joker was their ultimate downfall and meant missing the points needed to tie with I

Some Last Minute Fingering
Kathryn

Aloha Quizzers!  Tonight we saw a major upset with Plumbers Aren’t The Only Ones with Cracks stealing first place from Cincy Kiki in Round 8 with 1 point to spare.  John Snow came in third but was the only team to score 8 points in Round 1.  This Texas transplant was devastated that no one knew the logo for Blue Bell.  Finger Me Please decided to join late the game at Round 4 and gave The Quiztenders, our fabulous bar staff, some real competition.  Drunk Friends almost quit after a discouraging Round 2 but we were able to bring on the peer pressure and kept them

Waikiki Brewing Co - Third Times the Charm

Honolulu Geeks Who Drink Champions  Doug's Delayed Departure returned Sunday at Waikiki Brewing Co and maintained their status as the current reigning GWD Honolulu Champions. This supergroup was given a run for their money by Roahn Stahhp and Keeping up with the Jonses who showed that it doesn't take a big team to take home victory.  Not surprisingly for Hawaii, everyone recognized Elvis (Lilo and Stitch is true to life!) but '80s New Wave left us confused. Since the "drunk food" of choice in Hawaii is Zippy's (saimin is life) -  Denny's (just down the street) - left everyone scratching

Geeks Who Drink Finally Make Sweet Lavah in Hawaii
Kathryn

Aloha Quizzers!  What a night we had, our first ever Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz in Hawaii!  18 teams, standing room only, mostly first timers excited to see what all the fuss is about.  Round 2 made most of us feel old, which I think is a knock at Drake more than anything.  Candace Bergen took the lowest blow of the evening in Round 7, with most teams mistaking her voice for that of Steve Buscemi.  The quiz had some strong leaders the entire night but the game was anyone’s to take with half the teams taking the Joker in Round 8.  Our winners of the night, Carl Shoots His Load Early, took their Joker early in Round 7 missing their chance to
