Welcome to Fremont, Fremont, Tavern, Tavern,
WhitneyWhitworth

Holy god. Welcome to The Fremont Tavern formerly known as the bar known as Hotel Hotel formerly known as The Dubliner, now accepting new names. Jk.Jk. However, this new name transformation really did provide for some of the best team names I have seen in a long time. Actually, name changes aside, we had some dope a.f. names last night. It was really hard for Kristin and me to choose the best team name of the night. We went back and forth on a whole bunch of things, but here were some of our favorites: spoiler alert, it’s basically everyone. We will start with our winner, Fremont Tavern Fremont Tavern, we also really liked Who the Fuck

Springtime for Quizzers at Hotel Hotel
WhitneyWhitworth

My little quizzlecats, spring is here! I feel like I could run around the bar and pass out flowers to each and every one of you! Yes, perhaps my good mood can be attributed to the sunshine, or the fact that I am finally able to work on my event planning business, or maybe it is just because the very site of you puts me in such a good mood. Personally, I’m pretty sure that it is a combo of things, and I’m just happy to be part of it. Also, thanks to everyone who let me pet their dogs. I think this was the over-all feel of the quiz last night, well, that is, before our final scores came out. Jeebus, that final round killed you guys! Our scoreboards were all scrambled. Let’s

I Didn't Get the Chance to Sing to You, Yet Again
WhitneyWhitworth

Quizzers, it’s me, your sensual chipmunk, coming at you with another update for last night (and for those of you who missed it, say, because you were in South America or Hawaii- not that I’m jealous or anything, because I’m writing this blog from beautiful Everett, WA.) Gosh, sometimes these rounds can really be a challenge for you guys. For the most part, you nailed it- but the random knowledge round proved that there are some topics that we just aren’t great at- like, say, anything about Kurt Douglass. I said it once and I’ll say it again, Michael Douglass is already about 100, so you know that his dad is probably at least quadruple that (math brought

Penguins, The Penguin, and Pennatonix
WhitneyWhitworth

Lesson of the evening: you can’t bank on Round 8 to help your scores, especially when there are odd-ball questions about tiny Alaska towns and dead first ladies. Say it with me, “her first name is ROSALYNN Carter and she IS STILL alive!” Okay. I feel like just saying that has pretty much put the kiss of death on her, so if she dies this year, just know, that was all your fault! Good lord, we had a pretty tough quiz tonight, and I don’t say that lightly, considering we are home to some of the highest-ranking Seattle quizzers there are. It’s okay quizzers, there is always next week. Let’s look at the scoreboard to see exactly what I mean:

Justin Timberlake Has No Say about Tonight's Quiz
WhitneyWhitworth

Who knew that Justin Timberlake had so many song titles that could have also shared a name with the long-standing women’s marches against sexual violence and assault? I mean, of course the correct answer was Take Back the Night, which I remember participating in during my college years, but as some quizzers pointed out, it really could have been a number of things: Sexy Back or Cry Me a River for example. Yikes. There were so many unintentional horrible jokes during that time. All I have to say is that, before tonight, I never made that connection. So, a plea: Mr. Timberlake, if you are reading (which, obvi, why wouldn’t you be?) please consider choosing

This Roar-ound Is Brought to You by Chewie
WhitneyWhitworth

Have you ever just had one of those extremely stressful weeks? You know, the kind where you are in the middle of transitioning out of your job that you were supposed have left two weeks ago before they fired your replacement, but now you’re stuck doing all of the work you never though you would have to see again, and you don’t have a replacement job yet, and you’re trying to start your own business, and some shit is going down elsewhere in your life, and you’re pretty sure you have an ulcer and are about to lose your health insurance? But then you get to your weekly pub quiz and you hear an entire music round of Chewbacca covering popular songs, like, oh, say, Get

Snatch Box 20 Brings a Tear to My Eye
WhitneyWhitworth

I want to throw a very proud Quiz Mama shout out to Snatchbox 20 for BEING THE HIGHEST RANKING GEEK BOWL TEAM IN SEATTLE! I did not stutter. They ranked 14th out of over 200 teams! What, what?! I can’t explain how proud I am. I mean, you beat the next highest Seattle team, who play at my Tuesday night venue, so really, I think that is saying something. I wish that I could have been there to support you and cheer you on, but know this, I’m going to brag about you to all of the other Quiz Master parents for the next year. So there is that. Our quiz tonight was a bit smaller than last week. I would like to think that everyone was out protesting/celebrating

Well, you’re almost there! Just a few days shy of Geekbowl! I hope you guys are getting your practice on, because I hear the competition this year is really stiff. Like they say at the morgue, knock ‘em dead. Make your Quiz Mistress proud. Please. I brag about you all of the time to all of the other Quiz Hosts, like a soccer mom who has the Student of the Month bumper sticker on the back of her car. Let’s see, be on your best behavior, show them your brains, and if you need me to bring you a snack, or a juice box, or lick my thumb and wipe that smudge off of the corner of your mouth and wet down your cowlick, let me know, I’ll be here for you, dabbing a hanky

Introducing the Original PedoBear, Milo Yianoppolous, Everybody
WhitneyWhitworth

Rare is a quiz round that I do not feel I can actually read aloud, but I’ll tell you this, you found my uncomfortable spot tonight- and that is trying to talk about any sort of no-man’s land under crotch area. But, I guess, when you’re talking about How Green Is My Valley, and you’re not specifically referencing the movie, you have only a few options as to where you can go with the questions. Speaking of round titles, did you notice that every round, aside from your random knowledge round, was named after a Best Picture Oscar winner? Though, upon review, none of them had anything to actually do with those films. Just a little fun (French) connection

Be My Lupercaliatine
WhitneyWhitworth

s better than having 70 Valentines? Having 70 Lupercalia..ntines? That’s right, here at Hotel Hotel we do it up right and forego the flowers, candy hearts, and cheesy and suggestive cards. Here at Hotel Hotel, we celebrate our love for you with free pints of beer (provided you can be the first to answer the bonus question) as well as unlimited high-fives, though no one took me up on that offer tonight. I also offer my heart, soul, and about five jokes per evening, and that is something that only lame soccer dads can match. CAN MATCH. Do you see? I can’t even stop the shitty puns; they just keep goaling. Womp, womp. Anyway, our Lupercalia Day’s quiz was kind of a challenge,

"We Love Schience"- They Said through Their Braces.and Push Their Glasses up to the Bridge of Their Noses
WhitneyWhitworth

Well, quizlets, that was something, wasn’t it? We really made you work for your money tonight. There were some extremely hard questions and rounds. I mean, average of two points hard. Out of 18 teams, that is saying something. But, I will say this, when you have a group of people who look so forlorn after a music round and so jubilant when I mention a “difficult” scientific terminology round, well, I couldn’t be more proud. Truth be told, I would much rather you know what interferon is than any frigging song by the Pussy Cat Dolls. In fact, you’re what makes me proud of this country.

Uterus's before Dude...erus's
WhitneyWhitworth

Well, I never thought I’d live to see the day where ovaries were drawn on quiz packets instead of a bunch of penises, but today was that day! Gender equality is alive and well, at least at our quiz. Aside from being confused as to when Valentine’s Day actually is (because, well, I guess I don’t care all that much) today was pretty fantastic. A few of our quizzers have been out for work or out sick (sorry that I was a petri dish of a human being and maybe spread my germs a little) but made it back this week! The highlight of the nigh, and most nights, for me was all of the adorable dogs that quizzed with us. Guys. Guys. Guysguysguys. I have a birthday request for next

The Best Quiz There Ever Was (Sorry If You Missed It)
WhitneyWhitworth

Today, I present you an alternative quiz, for your reading pleasure, thanks to our super great soon to be Secrematary of Education and Sean Spicer, who puts the imPRESSive in Press Secretary. Sure, it’s supposed to work backwards from that, or something, but who is going to correct me, honestly? Alright. Tonight’s quiz was definitely the biggest quiz we have ever had. There has never, in the history of quizzes, been a quiz that was bigger. It was because Quiz Mistress Whitney and Scorekeeper Kristin are the most glorious quiz runners that have ever and will ever exist. Period. That is not a debatable fact. We are building walls of questions. Ever quizzer tonight

Wax on, Wax off, Tyler!
WhitneyWhitworth

Tonight’s quiz was brought to you by the letter T for Tyler and by viewers like you. Yes, we had a very special quiz tonight; Quiz Master in training, Tyler, joined us and did a pretty bang up job, for his first time hosting ever. Guys, I’m serious, this dude won’t sing karaoke with me, so for him to grab the mike (which, tonight, we learned the proper technique was what again?) was awesome! I said it a zillion times and I truly mean it, this job isn’t quite as easy as it looks. Just like your job, as quizzers, isn’t quite as easy without the answer sheet right in front of you- as Kristin, your regular scorekeeper, and I found out when we tried to play a few rounds

One Year Quizziversary

Happy one year anniversary, quizzers! I’m happy that we got to share this intimate moment together… just you, me, and you, and you, and, oh, 21 teams x 2 to 6 people each… so, well, needless to say, we celebrated this moment together all 80 to 100 of us! When I first started quizzing here, it was during my birthday celebration and I wore a party hat, and you still managed to come back! That’s saying something about the kind of relationship we have. I want to throw a special shout out to all of our quizzers who couldn’t attend tonight- some have moved away, are practicing for upcoming theater shows, had children, or took on new work. And to our new quizzers and

Our One Year Anniversary

  Well, our first quiz together in 2017 also marks my one-year anniversary quizzing for you. Granted, one year ago, I was temping for three(?) months, which turned into a permanent quiz just a month or so after that! I can’t believe how awesome you guys are and how welcome you made me feel. Look, I know you have been through a rocky ride- what, with your Quiz Mistresses changing, the ownership of the bar changing, and the pool table mysteriously moving last week, but you guys have handled all of this like the champs you are.
