Here a quiz, there a quiz, everywhere a quiz quiz
Mark

Hola quiztina vidales! Your honorable quizmaster Mark here to give you a rundown of the game last night. There were no questions about the movie The Rundown, however.  Big shout out to the Deal With The Devil IPA on draft at MacLeod. It' s hoptastic. We had a new prize of POPCORN last night, and it looked good. Darn good. One team took that home, other teams received perennial favorites Soap, Hat, and Beer Tokens. Lovely! Exciting, fast-paced quiz last night where we learned a lot, but did not learn the correct pronunciation of Nikon. Or is it Neekon? Or N-eye-con? Nick-on? No clue. Here were top 3: The Griswolds Happy

I don't want to work, i just want to quiz in this pub all day
Mark

Macleodheads, rejoice! For another quiz night was upon us. Then we were upon it. Then we all woke up on Monday and cried because it was 6 days before we would see each other again.  Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Teams showed up. We played the pub quiz. One team didn't like the first bonus question. I took it personally and cried. I had an awesome trainee that wiped my tears and picked up round 6 for me while I recovered. We had three teams win final prizes last night:   KONG: Giant Red Butt Island Awesome Sauced American Boner Care Act   All other teams were very nice

New Phrase for Sunday Night Pub Quiz: Sunday FUNday. I'll expect my bonus check in the mail.
Mark

Hello My Cloud-heads. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. If you see, I have all of the correct scores for this week to your left. No need to thank me, I do it for you. All for you. I love you. Feel free to browse through more than 5(!) pictures taken of the festivities last evening. I had a terrific time hosting for all of you, and hope you had a great time being hosted to. It was truly, truly my pleasure. Truly. Yes, yes. Mmm.  We had three big winners last night. Taking home that sweet gift card. You can get your hands on one of these puppies if you just come out next Sunday night at 7pm. At MacLeod Ale Brewing Co. There's a beer called "Ginger nuts" there.

EXCEL YOU RUINED ME
Mark

First off, had a great night last night. Even though we didn't get to see La La Midnight Land win Best Picture, we had two birthdays in the house and great scores all around. If you came here to see your score on the OFFICIAL geeks who drink website, my apologies. I think I closed out of Excel without saving your scores. This won't happen again!! But please see to your left the scores and team names to the best of my memory. What I DO know is that it was a super close game last night, and you all performed wonderfully. Feel free to come back to MacLeod any time! Specifically next Sunday at 7pm. Love you.   xoxo Mark

#NotMyPresidentsDay Eve
Michelle

Call it the party after the storm, but McLeod Ale Brewing Co quizzers came out in full force last night. A record 14 teams competed to take home prizes. We had a brief moment of silence for the tragedy in Sweden (which I used to assure the crowd that their usual host, Mark, would be back and was not a casualty of that terrible night) and then the game was afoot! The first round was a veritable spoken word poetry session, complete with snapping after every organ-related haiku. Unfortunately there weren't any doctors in the house, because a lot of people didn't know how to locate their spleen. It was a speedy few rounds following that and a couple of teams were

2 Fast 4 Luv: The Vin Diesel Story
Mark

They say quizzin' ain't easy, but it sure is fun. We had a tough one last night, but it was a true nail-biter to the end. Two or three teams pulled off HUGE third rounds, one team scoring 28 points in round 3 alone by a well-placed joker. This is what I live for you guys. Joker placement. You know who wasn't a joker last night? Anyone drinking the fine selection of MacLeod ales, stouts, and porters. These people make some delicious brew-dogs. Yum-o.  You know who else had fun last night? Me. I never talk about myself in these things. It's always you, you, you. Score, score, score. Beer, beer, beer. I had fun last night. Thanks for asking, you guys. Really.  Oh.

Pats Win. Get into it.
Mark

The geeks came out last night for the Super Bowl of Knowledge, which is what I like to call the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at MacLeod Ale Brewing Co (every Sunday night at 7pm). As a betting man, I was betting that no one would show up last night. But I also bet on the Falcons during halftime. And Clinton on election day. And Bernie Sanders during the Primaries. I am poor. What a quiz it was at MacLeod Ale Brewing Co at 7pm last night (a Sunday). As an avid blog reader, you know how these things go. Some teams win. Some teams lose. Beer is drunk. So is the crowd. I'm specifically talking about events that occurred during our Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz last night at MacLeod Ale

First Night Showdown
Dillon

The place was packed to the bursting point with laughter, beer, and peanuts last night at Macleods last night. Mark, the usual QM (and an awesome dude) let me take over his usual post for the entire night so I could get a feel of how to run things (Team Mike Hawke..., you will never be forgotten in the line-up again). People brought dogs and friends, and while there might have been some unknowns with the sport section, everyone had a grand time. Also, Tom Hardy=Tom Brady. You had to be there. Thanks Mark! Even the dogs had fun.

Alternative Quiz Answers
Mark

Team name of the week goes to Alternative Quiz Answers. Let's get that out of the way. Should team name of the week be a regular segment in this weekly blog? It should. Will it be? That depends on whether I remember to do it next week. Also, it'll probably end up being about butts or boners or whatever you lunatics want to call yourselves on Sunday. The Lord's day, no less! Shame. Shame! SHAME! What an exciting quiz last night. It was a treat to cozy up inside the MacLeod garage with all of you last night during a rainstorm (NOTE to Geeks Who Drink HR: there was no actual cozying last night). Oh, and you guys are sooooooo good at pronouncing words and correcting me. And in

Freudian Nips I Mean Slips
Mark

Our final Pub Quiz with Barack Obama as President. I wish I could have shown you the respect it deserved. But hey, the beer helps. Notable potables: the soap was the first prize picked last night. Usually it's a round 8 bonus prize, but the gentleman who won likes to keep it clean. Preach my brother. The quiz was decidedly HARD last night. So, so hard. Round 2 was easily the lowest scoring audio round we've had at MacLeod, and with the clips you were given who can blame you? It baffled me too. But a few teams pulled ahead of the pack before the end of the game last night and those top three teams were: It's The End Of The World As We Know It And I Feel

Make MacLeod Great Again (JK ITS NEVER STOPPED BEING GREAT)
Mark

Thanks to everyone who came out to MacLeod last night instead of watching the Golden Globes. You guys are the real winners. But the REAL real winners last night were the following three teams, who won gift cards last night as prizes for being the top 3: The Golden Boners Live w/ Jimmy Fallon The Merkins Team Butts Recommends The Brown Ale The other teams last night were neck-n-neck for most of the game, with just a few well-placed jokers separating them from Geeks Who Drink victory. But I don't think any team left emptyhanded, because bonus prizes galore were handed out to the teams last evening.

Last quiz of the year, I shed a little tear, but have no fear, in 2017 we'll be here. That's right, we're off for the holidays, or as I like to call it - Holidaze, am I right?! My Cloudheads last night came out in full force my first Powerpoint quiz. You read that right. A quiz with MICROSOFT POWERPOINT capability. Holy shit. Now, instead of listening to my beautiful voice struggle to pronounce french terms, you can struggle to read them. What a beautiful world in which we live. In the words of whoever wrote the songs in Mulan, let's get down to business. Top three teams last night were: Hold Please Duck Butter S

Enuff Z'Nuff is underrated
Mark

What up My Clouds?! Good times were had by most last night, because I can't speak for everyone. But if I were to speak for everyone, I'd say that everyone had the best night of their goddamn lives last night. Pint glasses? We gave em away. Beer? We drank it. Questions? They were answered. If you weren't there WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. We once again had a brand new Quizmaster train with us last night, and she was a huge help. Thanks Michelle!  For the first time in what feels like forever (but is actually just a week or two) last night there WAS NO TIEBREAKER. FINALLY. MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED. Top three teams were: 1) Duck

Bloggy McBloggerson over here typing up a bloggy
Mark

Here we go again, MacLeodies. Another glorious Monday. Another winner. Another loser. What's the point of life? We ate hot dogs, drank beer and answered questions last night. Sure, we had fun. I had my old friend Dillon there to help out (slash train), you guys settled in for a long winters' evening of knowledge-based competition and putting food/drink in your mouths. Is this the purpose? To have fun and ingest calories? I may not be the Almighty (Bruce Almighty), but to that I say P-A-R-T-Why? Because I gotta. We had a tight game last night. Tight AF. But with a little jokering we had four teams emerge victorious - This Week's Pop Culture Does Not Lend Itself

Gary Cole is currently in the Starbucks I am writing this in
Mark

He just left. I didn't get a chance to tell him how much I love The Brady Bunch Movie. Dammit. We had a great time as usual at MacLeod's last night. I don't know if you were there or not, but if you were then you know it was awesome and if you weren't you better be there next week! We had a tough quiz last night that I would have absolutely BOMBED but you guys did ah-mah-zing. 4rlz. But not on the audio round. That was rough. Things to note: Beer soap was the second bonus prize selected last night. That's a first. Also, you guys were ON IT shouting "the answers" after I told you not to. It's as if you are WILLFULLY disregarding my instructions! Lots

This quiz is loaded with limericks/And we're sorry but they're kinda our schtick
NicoleHolliday

A great time was had by all last night at MacLeod Ale Brewing Company! While regular host Mark was away for a VERY extended Thanksgiving vacation, I stepped in to save the quizful day! Despite the rare rainy weather in LA, 9 teams came out and fought long and hard for quiz victory glory! In the end, however, there could be only one true winner. Throughout the game, Huge Jacked Man and Trump is My President were neck and neck, performing impressively in rounds about shoes, animal movies, and 8-bit-ized pop songs (never forget Electric Avenue)! The game ended in a dramatic tie for first place, with Fantastic Ass and Where to Tap it
