The One Where Gloria Estefan Was Joan Rivers
Michelle

I think I'm just going to start formatting all of my blog posts like "Friends" episode titles. Thoughts on this homage to a show that ended over 10 years ago?  Last night at Idle Hour we had seven teams who were unable to differentiate Gloria Estefan's voice from the late Joan Rivers' (sorry, Gloria), as we all set our ringtones to David Cross belting "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Drinks were flowing, though there was no ice cream, and if there had been and our current President had shown up, we would have only been allowed one scoop.  I want to take a second to personally apologize to the team member I argued with about whether or not Pitbull is a

A Blog For Mama
Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

Mama, you know I love you. That's why I have to write this blog real quick! I do it all for you. All the hours hosting really good pub quizzes - it's all for you. You're the queen of my heart. I just want you to know, lovin' you is like an Idle Hour dinner washed down with a $5 mule for my soul.   Mama, we had a great quiz last night. 11 teams and a whole lot of tie-breaking! Great attitudes! Someone liked my music choices! Some of the team names were not Mama-friendly so I'll spare you. I'd say the highlight was when everyone had to listen to the Swedish Chef cover pop songs. You'd love it. I'll see if I can find some YouTube clips you can forward to Aunt Karen

Idle Hour? More like Busy Hour!
Mark

What up, Quizzies? Had a great time filling in at Idle Hour last night! What a fun place to be on a warm Thursday night. Thanks to all the great teams who showed up. It was a close game last night and we gave out PBRs like crazy. Good times! The big winner last night was Glenn Close But No Cigar, their team name really sold them short though, because they won. That's funny? I don't know anymore. Second place went to Cheez Dreamz, which is just good fun. Thanks for all the fun you guys! Your regular Quizmaster should be back next week, and who knows? Maybe i'll even come and play. Not likely, since my bedtime

:( Bounce Back :(
Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

Last night we had some sound issues which was pretty unfortunate because like all of you, I live for the pub quiz. I was pretty bummed about it but it'll be ok. We take losses so we can enjoy the wins that much more. So please do some back next week for more $5 mules and that sweet sweet Idle Hour menu. May I suggest the warm soft pretzel with the dope dips? Thanks to everyone who came out and offered help. Your dedication and selflessness will take you far in life. See you next week, no pressure at all for that to go well, just gonna be a smooth and fun quiz.   Also Manumission Abolitionist was ahead after 1 round anyway soo.... there ya go.

I'm just happy we made it through last night's quiz. Not that there was any doubt of course but there were so many teams! It was awesome. Everyone was so nice and happy, even though the wind was crazy and the parking was... tough. But it's cool! Idle Hour was the best as usual and if you're reading this and weren't there, I can't even begin to understand that.   Raiders of the Lost Dick

The Russian Kombucha King
Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

This week I announced that every Thursday at Idle Hour at 9:29 pm I will be holding weekly town hall meetings to inform you about developments in my investigation into quiz interference in by the Russian Kombucha King, Strawberri-mir Gluten. It has come to my attention that kombucha, a confirmed gut performance enhancing drug, is being used among regular attendees of our trivia night to give them an edge over other competitors. We take these allegations seriously and believe Mr. Gluten was directly involved in

Ovaltine on Me Gang!
Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

Happy St. Patrick's Day everybody! Been cookin up a lot of salsa verde for the gang gang. My color blind homies call today 50 shades of grey oddly enough.    Last night's contest was a doozie! Manumission Abolitionists returned to the top of the mountain. "True Champions rise  the highest after a fall" I'm pretty sure Oprah said that, but I don't want to commit to quoting her just yet. Legal reasons you understand. Fluffernut Squash brought home the 2nd place title. I went to the governor's mansion and got him to change the laws on victory.  The staff squad Transformers,

We Had Fun!
Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

Last night's quiz was as satisfying as breakfast for dinner. Everyone had fun! There were no fights. Except for the fight for the right to party, that's ongoing.   Idle Hour is a fun bar, now with two drink specials for trivia night! $5 mules and $3 stouts to get your intellect juiced up. Take advantage of the deals early and often. Tip your servers. Buy your Quizmaster a drink!    Last night was a close one, with You Little Shit! taking the top prize, barely edging out local celebs Manumission Abolitionists. Our other teams, well, they didn't take home any prizes but they were cool and no one got

Melz, Meliam, Rex Montenegro, Baby Telemundo, Edward Fontaine

Hello all! Jamel here for you with a classic Pub Quiz  review.  Last night we had a barn burner despite my being on probation for barn arson aka Barson. We had a few new clubs this week though it was too little too late because The champs Manumission Abolitionist returned to their rightful place!!! Even though I hate all their guts, they were definitely missed. Multiple Scoregasm brought home 2nd and The 3 Bears (If they don't care) took home the 3rd place chalice which is a Popeyes travel cup.  Honorable Mention goes out to :

What's up gang members?! Jamel here with a report from yet another fantastic pub quiz! Thursday night was a little brisk in LA but we still had some soldiers thug it out on the patio. I don't mean actual soldiers of course. As we all know President Trump has them all stationed in Luxembourg currently for reasons we've been told "aren't exactly racist".  Shouts out to the Swedish guy who got very pumped after round 1 and asked if he could play Ace of Base off his iPod. Come back next week and I'll let you play their greatest hits. We had 6 teams last night. Two of which were a couple that broke up and got back together*. *For legal reasons they were not photographed

The Ballad of Don Cartegena

Cello Everyone! Jamel here for you with another good ol' down home American pub quiz review so strap on your cowboy hats. Before we get into I'd like to let you know this pub quiz wrap up is brought to you by the CD section at Cracker Barrel, the single most American thing there has ever been. For those who weren't in attendance you missed the upset of the freakin' century. Not only did Manumission Abolitionists not win they came in daggone 3rd place. Never thought I'd see the day, but now that we're here......, Bernie would've won. Mothership dethroned the reigning bar champs and The Leftovers were their runner-ups.

The Life and Times of DS Ripley

We had a pub quiz last night in honor of a man who lived and died for knowledge. Detective Sergeant Justin Ripley. Sure he was a fictional character and I couldn't understand a word he was saying, but I know he woke every morning and took it to the max for our safety. Well technically it was British people's safety but whatever. Let's have a moment of silence.. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________   Here are the standings from lest night.

Good afternoon, Australia!    Just want to let you guys know I will be mentioning Australia in every pub quiz wrap-up from now on. I'm not gonna name names but I heard the president said you guys weren't cool anymore and I think I speak for everybody at Geeks Who Drink and GeeksWhoDrink.com when I say that Australia is rad as hell. I got two words for you: Rain Sticks.   Moving on, Thursday night's quiz was a classic as usual. Manumission Abolitionists won again, because that 's just what they do.
