Hotel Hotel, You Gotta PIZZA My Heart <3
WhitneyWhitworth

Hello beautiful(s). Have I ever told you how great you look from my stage view? Great. It’s great. I’m going to miss you when your real mom comes back and swoops you up in her arms and whisks you away to whatever magical land she has in store for you. Le sigh. We still have a month-and-a-half together. So how will we spend it? Why torturing you with nearly impossible rounds, of course.   Take tonight for example. Round number six. Sheeit, guys, that round was painful for most of you. Well, one team out of the 19 of ya’s scored a perfect eight, solidifying my theory that most of you are neither farmers nor professional mathleats. Round number eight also

I'm Not a Movie Screen, You Don't Have to Duck when You Walk in Front of Me.
WhitneyWhitworth

Ah yes, another week where we found ourselves crying on the bathroom floor because everyone has left us and our childhoods were a thinly veiled lie at Hotel Hotel for a pub quiz. You guys ne’er seem to amaze me with how smart you are. I really can say, there aren’t too many dummies that walk through our doors.   Really, round eight was the only truly problematic round. Your audio round deserved a round of applause, because you guys KILLED it. You were also fairly on-point with your name choices for the evening- my favorite being So No One Told You Life Was Going to be this Way, to wit THEE

Buttholes All the Way Down
WhitneyWhitworth

Holy Christ at the last supper. TWENTY-FOUR TEAMS! 24 teams. And two dogs. Guys, I think this is the biggest quiz that I’ve ever hosted. That many bodies created a super heat in Hotel Hotel, causing to ALMOST be forced in to having a stripped down version of our quiz. I, myself, took off as much clothing as I was legally allowed to. I don’t think that the heat, however, negatively affected your brains, because when we look at the score board, our top team of the night, Sweaty Quiz on My Face, had a whopping 86 points with only two 16 point rounds to do so in- see also, the scores below:   Sweaty

Alan Rickman Lives Forever in Snape Porn
WhitneyWhitworth

Howdy, howdy, howdy. I think that this may be the only time that I have even embraced that greeting. Growing up in the country, things like that kind of lose their luster after a while. I will share with you, my new (and temporary) quiz family, I have ridden a sheep before- it is called mutton busting. I was, like, 10, and my parents made me do it for the rodeo. I lasted about five seconds and cried a lot. AND THAT WAS THE LAST TIME THAT I CRIED.   Just like my life, there is no crying in quizzing. Not even for last place, and second to last place there is especially no crying, because you won a free pitcher of beer. The scores were crazy tonight, even with the dramatic

De-Bugged for Her Pleasure
WhitneyWhitworth

Why hello there. I’ve been waiting for you. All of you. I’ve been waiting all week, my sick voice on standby, just so I could sensually read you the following beetle names: dongram, cockchafer, pissode, kumbang. Oh yeah… can you hear my phlegm, right now, coughing trough those words? You’re welcome. Now, you won’t sleep tonight because of my creepy-ass death rattle and the fact that you are reminded of that Creep Show short about the guys- the neat-freak- who lives in an all-white sterile bachelor pad that gets infested by cockroaches. SWEET DREEEEEAAAAMS. But seriously, come back to me. Don’t let that deter

Birthday Birthday at Hotel Hotel
WhitneyWhitworth

Wow! What a first quiz, you guys. I know that it is typically pretty busy at Hotel Hotel, but it is nice to see that you all didn’t just jump ship while Meaghan takes a few months off to better herself with a higher education. Also, just know that I considered you all part of my birthday celebration. I wrote my mom via text and told her that about a hundred people showed up to my birthday party. She was impressed! Also, special shout out to Cooper, who had a legit birthday today (whilst mine is technically on the 8th.) And special shout out to yellow shirt- your sheer height was super helpful tonight.   Let’s get to the highs and lows of

You be good now
Quiz Wiggles

As you well know at this point, last night was my last quiz while I take the next 3 months off for some higher learning and skill acquisition through night school. And I have to say it hurts to go, Hotel Hotel.  But know that though parting be such sweet sorrow, absence will surely make my heart grow fonder, and if you take the high road I'll take the low road and we'll meet at the bar in three months.   In the meantime, toast a beer to me, quiz on, and you be good now to Whitney, your amazing and hilarious substitute quizmistress!   Until we meet again, my dear quizzers!   QM Meaghan

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Joyous Solstice! And blessed Festivus to the rest of us!   There's nothing like celebrating being an orphaned snowflake during the holidays than snuggling in for a little intimate Quizmas time with all the other lonely hearts at Hotel Hotel.  Last night was a cozy quiz of 12 teams. The Christmas playlist was full of all the sad and bitter Christmas songs.  We had a round on Christmas song parodies.  People wore their ugly Christmas sweaters.  More than half of us were double fisting Apple Pie Whiskey Hot Toddies and tequila shots.  It could not have been more perfect.   Thanks for being my home

Full House... err, Hotel?
Quiz Wiggles

Holy mackrel, batman!  Last night we broke a record for most teams at Hotel Hotel in my history as Quizmistress!  All the regular teams, plus some walk-ins, plus some reunion teams from The Lobby Bar, plus some dispossessed folks from 99 Slide brought us to a total of 25 teams!  Also we can't forget that guy in the corner who wasn't really playing and kept calling out the wrong answers.  Way to not listen to him!   What a great way to go out with a bang before the holidays!  But wait... we're not stopping our quiz action next week either.  Oh no, no no.  Hotel Hotel will still be quizzing away at 8PM next Wednesday, December 23rd!

How to Train a Quizmaster
Quiz Wiggles

As you all know by now, Marcus and I take our jobs very seriously.  We consider ourselves the humble handmaidens of the quiz--making sure it is delivered to the masses, protecting its sanctity, assuring its integrity, and imbuing the weekly quiz ritual with an appropriate amount of pomp, circumstance, and general silliness.  So when asked to impart the methods of our madness to another Quizmaster in training, we were of course flattered and exhilarated to share our secrets.   And after last night's training, I am confident we could not find a worthier Quizmaster novice than our new friend Greg.  He rocked Round 4 like it was nobody's business, even cracked

Meaghan: Figment of Your Imagination?
DungeonMasterOfQuizmasters

This week, one team asked the very important question, “Did this guy kill Meaghan?”  Well, joke’s on you, motherfuckers!  I have at least two photos of Meaghan covered in blood.  Is she dead?  Am *I* dead?  You’ll never know now!  Until next week at quiz, I guess.   This quiz isn’t good for my waistline, by the way.  Usually I can abstain from bar food, but the pizza coming out of that new oven is pretty damn tasty.  And one slice is so good that I want to try another type, and then I need another beer to wash it down… the

Sean McNeil (Shamu) was the fourth killer whale ever captured and was the third orca ever displayed in a public exhibit. He was the first orca to survive more than 13 months in captivity and was the star of a very popular killer whale show at SeaWorld San Diego in the mid - late 1960s. After his death in 1971, the name Shamu continued to be used in SeaWorld "Shamu" orca shows for different killer whales in different SeaWorld parks. Little is known about Sean McNeil’s reincarnation as an audio visual tech nerd and publisher, but it has been proven that he was, in fact, a killer whale.

Denis Leary is My Savior
Sgt. Jinglehonks

Meaghan took the week off so she could, like, see her family in Spokane and shit, so you’re mine now, Turkey Lovers! I’m not huge into Thanksgiving. I find traditional American food strange, my family is too disparate for a dinner to make any sense, and as a Berkeley-born liberal, I knew the crummy politics of the holidays at a far-too-young age. Also, turkeys are friggin’ weird-lookin’. It’s a traced hand and a melted blood-colored dickie with a pointy thing at the end of it, and the cry of WAABLBBALBABLABLABLABLABLBALBALBLABLAAAAAA is NOT COOL, MAN. Total boner killer.

Dirty Innuendos from a Blunt Instrument
Quiz Wiggles

God damn't, I used to be so on point.  I mean I had a real edge. I was so sharp the ladies couldn’t wait to wrap their fingers around me and press me down hard into the table, or do that thing where they despondently tap my butt against their lips, or y’know, intimately tuck me behind their ear.  Oooh, damn. Those were the days. Now look at me...crappy, blunt, ground down to nothing but a puny nubbin. Man, I wish that crazy quiz lady would get the pencil sharpener up and functioning again. So lamented the dull quiz pencil as he sat despondently in the beer cup.   Stay tuned next week for the arrival of a new

A Poem for Mary
Quiz Wiggles

As many of you might've noticed last night at quiz, our favorite server at Hotel Hotel Pizza Bar has flew the coop and taken off for sunnier weather and better snow during these dreary winter months.  And can you blame her?  As much as I love Seattle, the long, grey winters without snow to freshen up the landscape have bothered me ever since my sojourn here 8 years ago.  But at least you and me and our quiz family have each other and delicious Meat Pizza to keep us warm through these winter months.  And to honor her departure, I have composed this short poem for Hotel Hotel Pizza Bar's favorite server gal, Mary.   A
