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. Thank you for getting your educations before DeVos-feratu changes the youth for

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
WhitneyWhitworth

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
WhitneyWhitworth

  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. Win, lose, or forfeit due to the fact that you guys have too many players, you’re all top notch. If this were a reality show, I would have a really

Three More Days, but Last Quiz for 20sucksteen
WhitneyWhitworth

Well, we made it to the last days of 2016(the world?) Debbie Reynolds basically died moments before our quiz, so that was great. I’m telling you, just three more days. Somehow, we can make it. If we hold hands and Whooville this shit and sing songs until our happiness returns, we will make it. Just. Three. More. Days. Passing those days with quizzes is not so bad. We had kind of a small, intimate quiz tonight, which was nice and cozy. Sometimes, after the holidays, you have to kick your extended family out and focus on those you really want to be surrounded by. For me, that is you, dear quizzers. Feel special. Actually, I got to spend my Christmakah in Disneyland, which was pretty

More like Jamiro-CRY
WhitneyWhitworth

Quizzards, sad day, we are losing team The Last of the Jamiroquais the city of Santa Barbara. Jamiroquais has been a long standing team of ours, surviving multiple quiz hosts, venue owners, and score keepers. They have been through the whole enchilada, and last night, they got to take home said enchilada. Yes, that is right, on their last quiz as a whole team (which, incidentally, we had a round that was based around whole things,) they took home first place, in a sudden death runoff with Snatchbox 20. I was pretty dang proud. You both were even a solid three points above Werewolves not Swearwolves. There is a lot we are going to miss:

When Your Quizzers Laugh at Paul Walkers Death, But Are Bummed that The Browns Suck SOOOOOO Much

Well, one more month until the year that rained down poop on innocent children and puppies officially comes to an end. I, for one, was more than happy to spend the last day of November, 2016 with you guys. The highlight of this year, other than my pending trip to DisneyLand and Universal for Christmas, and my trip to Las Vegas and almost barfing after the all you can drink “big wheel” challenge, was permanently adopting you guys as my new babies. I feel like the Angelina of Quiz Mistresses. You’ll have a place in my heart, with our without Brad. Speaking of, Brad was even mentioned in round one today.

Humans Have Knees, You Guys

Happy Quizgiving, lil’ babies! I’m so glad we got to see each other before we have to wear our stretchiest velour juicy pants for the next week. Seriously, I’m about to be a hot mess, and I have no apologies for such behavior. As a vegetarian, I celebrate this holiday to my… fullest… because, growing accustomed to living off of sides when I am invited places for the last 16 years, this day is my literal smorgasbord. That aside, I feel like now would be a good time to make my obligatory “I’m thankful” list. Obvi- I’m thankful for you guys.

When 'Two Eyes' Became Our Insult of the Evening
WhitneyWhitworth

Hello quizlets! I missed you, the highlights of my week. I feel like you’re the children that my IUD is currently preventing me from having. Dawww. Heart emoji. I like our regulars, and I’m growing rather fond of our newer players, who are fitting in week after week with our rag-tag bunch. And yes, maybe our current scores are rather high, but stick with our venue, and you’ll get there soon! I really think our smart breeds smart. Just look at the score board and how close the top teams were:   Four Clams Hole 87 1

We Wear Pajamas for Comfort, Because We Don't Feel Comfortable in Our Country Anymore.
WhitneyWhitworth

Hey quizzers, thank you so much for coming out last night. We've had a rough couple of weeks at Hotel Hotel, and last night was one of them. I feel so privileged to live a a community that provides support for each other- even if that support comes in a wave of our pub quiz. I'm not going to lie, it was really hard for me to drag myself out of bed, from a much needed comfort nap, due to the inability to sleep last night paired with a nasty hangover (and as you may have noticed, I don't really drink.) I'm not going to lie, my biggest incentive was that being your Quiz Mistress is my job and, like my day job, I had to show up. You didn't have that incentive, and yet, you still came. That meant

WhitneyWhitworth

Holy cow! We have had quite the quizzes lately. Being sandwiched between debates, the world series, and Mast Chef can be challenging. I just want to thank everyone for being loyal quizzers and battling with parking, tables, and a packed bar to hang out and win some free booze. I honestly think that last night was a good representation of what I love about all of you: your dedication to the quiz was stronger than the dedication that folks had to the game. Sure, there was plenty of overlap, but when asked if we could get started, even though the game was in the 8th and so close/eventually tied, you guys were all about getting our quiz on.
