Move! That! Bus!
J9

Greetings, quizzers. I hope you all had as much fun Sunday as I did. The first three rounds went pretty smoothly and seven teams were separated by only four points! Then Round 4 and 5 started splitting up the pack. (I agree that the Rory Gilmore Pop! Figure in Round 5 was very misleading, but c'est le vie.) everyone got a kick out of sex and physics and then we all had a super fun time taking a break halfway through Round 7 to wait for the noisy bus. I hope you all got a chance to make new friends! So after a two-week streak, our reigning champions, We ♥ Randy, were dethroned to second place and Chuck Likes to Play with Himself took

My Mom is Better than Your Mom....at Quiz!
J9

Happy Mother's Day! I hope none of you Googled episiotomy... Anyways, most of you mastered Round 1 with those E before I words, you also knew most of those top 100 single hits in Round 2, and you guys know your invertebrates! Good work. Round 7 definitely had the lowest score average, oh applesauce! With two additional opportunities to score 16 points we had some high scores tonight. Congrats to our winners: A Tribe Called Quiz placed third, Yo Yo Ma Ma placed second, and Druck It, I'm Funk placed first for the second week in a row thanks to a strong showing in Round 3 – they lucked out since members of the team had lived in three of

I Love Saguaros
J9

So thank you to Saguaro Lovers for recognizing my love of saguaros. I'm from Arizona which is the only state in which the beautiful saguaro cactus grows naturally, and tonight I wore a shirt covered in them. Saguaro Lovers did win tonight, but I swear they won on their own merits! Thank you all for joining me tonight, we quasi-reignited the Tom Brady Bunch/Tom Brady Sucks Rivalry. Y'all changed your team names and tricked me! So in first place was Saguaro Lovers, second was Make America Smart Again (amen to that!), and although Mango's Menagerie scored the third highest number of points, they had a questionable number of

Next Time We'll Have a Karaoke Session
J9

Greetings quizzers, thanks for a super fun Sunday night. Everyone certainly seemed to enjoy our audio rounds this evening; it almost turned into a sing along! Math is hard, so don't feel bad if you were one of the four teams that scored only 1 point in R6. Highest score that round was 6 points, which was scored by our winning team, 100 Days of Bummer. (Personal) Space Invaders finished in second. We had a bit of excitement at the end with a tie for third place between English Milds and Overly Confident – with Overly Confident winning the tie breaker. I hope you all join us May the 4th for our Star Wars quiz.

Make the Red Flashing Light Stop!
J9

Did you know that next Saturday in Waikiki is Spam Jam?!? A street food festival dedicated to Hawaii's favorite canned meat! Go check it out and eat your fill and then join me for quiz Sunday night! So I apologize for my momentary crankiness brought on by the red flashing hazard lights of the car parked next to me for nearly two hours. Some people are just plain rude! But not my quizzers, you all are so polite and friendly and I love you! We had about a 50/50 split between regulars and first time quizzers last night, which made it super fun. Everyone learned about gerbils and turkeys, and many of you realized that you need to watch more cop movies. Although "Island in the Pacific"

HOPPY EASTER!
J9

The Easter bunny visited quiz and left the quizzers candy filled eggs, but no clues to the quiz answers! Despite the sugar high, it was a pretty chill night. Maybe too much Easter fun earlier in the day? I'm still glad you all came out to join me for quiz. We lucked out with R1 on Hawaii - everyone knew that the humuhumunukunukuapuaa (or humu for short) is our state fish. Those of you who are fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a good night, and R7 definitely went better for quizzers of a certain generation than the youngsters among us. Congratulations to our winners - Chuckles Bites the Dust took first, We Fail at Quiz Like North Korea Fails at Missile Launches

Hollowed-out Butts, B-U-T-T-S, Butts
J9

Well that was a fun Sunday night! Thank you all for being such a great crowd and playing quiz with me, we had some awesome rounds tonight. I was told I was a "horribly, horribly awesome" Quizmaster – which I'm definitely taking as a compliment. Video game haikus, mixed up song lyrics, and TV theme songs played in reverse were no match for your amazing quiz brains! We Brought Our Own Jameson ended our champion's four-week-streak and won the night. Factor of Life came in second, and behind by only one point was Kill the Rat who placed third. Shout out to the team who thought they were clever, Free Drinks, Courtesy of Janine.

Frank Patriarchy Vampire Calling Party Crashers to Remake Knowledge
J9

See what I did there? I can make up random fake titles, too! Thank you to everyone who joined me for another great night of quiz! So apparently no one has seen the Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988), which I think is an absolute tragedy; therefore, I command each of you to go and watch it! From IMDB: The fantastic tale of an 18th century aristocrat, his talented henchmen, and a little girl in their efforts to save a town from defeat by the Turks. Being swallowed by a giant sea-monster, a trip to the moon, a dance with Venus, and an escape from the Grim Reaper are only some of the improbable adventures. Written and directed by Terry Gilliam with Eric Idle, Robin Williams, and Uma Thurman.

Happy Second Anniversary WBC!
J9

Waikiki Brewing Company is two years old and I'm so thankful for its existence. Amazing people, amazing beer, and the perfect venue for me to bring you pub quiz each week! Thank you quizzers for supporting me and the brewery! Sunday night was a good time, as usual. We heard some Aretha and identified some dumb blonds, and people really struggled naming TV doctors, but almost everyone nailed R6 the Land Before Timecop! Congrats to A Street Car Naked Desire who beat out everyone else but a good twenty points or so for first place. Apex Sexual Predators came in second and Fake Clues! finished in third.

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

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
