Come Sail Away
Chris

Do you guys like sailing?  I’ve never really been sailing.  I’ve been out fishing on boats off the Jersey shore, sure, but never proper sailing.  So I was surprised by how excited I was to come find a Sailors NYC event happening at Pint.  This meant we had a huge crowd with some Sailors NYC folk giving out swag, offering some discount on sailing activities in the Hudson, and keeping the celebration going by joining Quiz as Sailing Insanity. The Pint staff also informed me that the whole thing was in honor of the late Roger Brown, a regular, and all-around great guy.

Time to Binge-Watch General Hospital
Chris

Tonight I was feeling the love.  Both from my NYC friends, self-gratifyingly named My Best Friends, who came in to visit and answer some questions, as well as from Eric, The most overly-friendly man I’ve ever met.  He correctly guessed my age and that my watch belonged to my late grandfather.  Good start!  He went on to point out my bodily imperfections, like the little pudginess around my waist, and my beard not fully engulfing my jaw-line. Thanks?  Then during Round 8, his team mates had to leave, so he kinda cuddled up next to me. So it was a roller coaster,

I'll Believe That When Donors Can Fly
Chris

So let’s say I crash my car into a pig farm. Like, I’m driving around with my friend, it’s a long winding country road, we’re very distracted by the rolling hills and interesting cloud shapes because we’re nature-lovers, life is good.  We’re listening to John Denver.  Up ahead, we notice a building surrounded by grain silos and animal enclosures, and don’t think much of it, because hey, it’s the country.  But after the fourth round of belting out “Take me home!  Country road!” at the top of our lungs, I lose track of the wheel and careen

The Emoji Movie, Rated X
Chris

Wednesday was Administrative Professional’s Day for all of us who work in office’s or work environments with secretaries.  My day job co-workers and I bought a nice bouquet of flowers and a thoughtful card and made our secretary’s day!  Meanwhile, at Geeks Who Drink, I do all of my own organizing, printing, scheduling, etc., effectively acting as my own secretary for every one's benefit, and I noticed that nobody brought me any flowers or cards.  Sad-face emoji. Tonight we invented a lot of new movies.  Trainwreck-it Ralph (a movie where Amy Schumer falls for a guy

Goodbye Bill, Hello Geeks!
Chris

Thank you everyone for taking a break from filling out your FOX News pinhead talk show host replacement applications and joining us at Pint! We covered a wide range of topics, including magic, flutes, magic flutes, celebrity conspiracy theorists, and food that may or may not be vegan.  But first we had to find out which teams know how to dress themselves. Now, I, for one, always dress myself from the top down, so I would’ve aced this round.  We had 5 teams actually ace this round, getting off to a good start.  HiaLeah 305 did their

Boom Boom Pow Goes the Dynamite
Chris

Today we tackled a few age old questions:  Is deep-dish pizza truly bad?  Can Chris do the DJ air horn noise?  Was Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact or Armageddon?  I don’t know about that last one, but I’m writing this blog in Armageddon font. The Quizzers did a lot more tackling than I did though as a competitive night with nuclear movies, the non-violent side of Syria, and sports commentating challenged us all. A few notes of appreciation for JK, who had a perfect Round 1, for spelling out every state in a perfect Round

There is No Movie Called "James Bond"
Chris

Happy hour ends as Quiz begins, but hey, I’ve got freshly sharpened pencils!  Anyone?  Anyone think this is as exciting as I do?  A Quizmaster’s dream come true. Anyway, why you gotta remind me right off the bat that I didn’t win my March Madness bracket?  Yes Gonzaga lost to UNC, but I lost a 100 dollar prize to my brother, so I’m having a bad week too. Some other current events questions, as well as a bunch of rounds that favored rule-listeners.  Sorry to those who submitted Round 2 sheets with both artists AND a song

Penguin Tyme
Chris

Everywhere I go, I can’t get away from goddamn Pentatonix. They’re in my Macy’s commercials, at the Grammy’s, I think I saw them at my local community center.  Pretty sure one of them is Howie from Backstreet Boys.  I like a capella, and obviously they’re talented, but I didn’t expect them to invade my Quiz life.  Half of my Quizzers groaned, some cheered, the rest ordered a gin & pentatonic and drank.  Their “How Will I Know” slayed though. Other than that, we had rounds on gambling terms (I lost

The walk to Pint was too damn windy.  But I also wasn’t quite prepared for the shitstorm inside the bar. I got on the mic about 15 minutes prior to introduce Quiz.  The announcement was immediately met with a WOOO, and an enthusiastic new face grabbing a score sheet.  I liked this guy.  His team seemed like they would be fun.  I was wrong. This was team Camp Dump (?).  Round 1 consisted of a few reminders to NOT shout out answers, and several shush’s from the crowd.  This became worse during Round 2, as

Ides of March Madness
Chris

Hope everyone enjoyed the state of emergency! At Pint, all we had was a state of urgency as as a handful of regulars battled for Pub Quiz supremacy.  We had five teams overall braving the never-ending winter.  I took a break from building my snowquizmaster and ventured in, a little worried I would fall victim to the Ides of March and be back stabbed by some traitorous Quizzers.  Thankfully, I wasn’t overthrown, and the Pint crew remains a great hang on a Wednesday night. Good questions, too.  We all had a good laugh with some scruffy-looking

Happy International Women’s Day, Pint!  This blog recap goes out to the women to whom I belong.  And what better way to celebrate the important day than to show how intelligent the women of Pint are with a challenging Quiz? There were a ton of government questions to start, which made us all feel queasy.  But that’s what you get with a current events round.  Everyone did perfectly, proving that we’ve all been hyper-aware of the news recently.  Well, everyone performed perfectly except Make America Budweiser Again, who are just waiting for the news that

E-dating Doesn't Involve Mind-Altering Drugs

Hello March! We rang in the month with a Quiz that included my favorite round I’ve ever read.  Reading those poorly translated movie quotes gave me the good kind of giggles.  Everyone dug it, too.  Perfection. Speaking of perfection, King Rancho was nearly there.  They had 4 out of 8 perfect rounds, including the first three (the big drama of the night was “would they blow it”).  They didn’t.  They even correctly identified Hang On Sloopy, which apparently happens when you’re from Ohio, as

Three weeks into my tenure at Pint, all February Quiz dates behind us, and this bar hasn’t disappointed me yet.  At least, not when it comes to scores, enthusiasm, or wittiness, which is all a Quizmaster can really hope for.   We were joined by a Quizmaster in training tonight, the young padawan Zack!  Zack lent his Joe Pesci-pipes to the proceedings at Pint and got us through the middle rounds.  Although not entirely on purpose, I made him ask all the awkward questions about crotch infections, so I hope I didn’t violate any Geeks Who Drink hazing policies.

"Miners" not "Minors"
Chris

Did everyone have a good Valentine’s Day?  Or at least a rip-roaring Lupercalia that would make Faunas blush?  I hope so.  Pint seemed to, and I for one was enamored with Quiz tonight.  A good diverse set of rounds that covered everything from geography to celebrity mortality.  Not even evil blondes could ruin our Valentine’s Week, and boy have they ruined some of mine in the past. As for bottom placers, Barack, Paper, Scissors, earned a last place finish, largely in part due to thinking the song “Don’t Stop Believin’” was called “Strangers”.

New Kid on the Block, Got a Buncha Quiz
Chris

I’ve been told that when you’re the new guy, you have to make your presence known.  Like being the new inmate on a cell block at a maximum security prison, you have to establish dominance, or they’ll eat you alive.  So I came in gun’s a-blazin’ to Pint with a challenging handful of rounds for the Pint Quizzers, who I’d been told were a sharp bunch. For real, between Mamet vs. Geico, obscure song Mashups, and advanced (!) science, this wasn’t easy.  Awesome 2-Too sat comfortably in first place for most of the night with an early joker, but

The Word of the Day is: Quiz

After a week off for renovations, Pint was looking good, Jason was back behind the bar, and everyone brought their A-game for a challenging quiz!   Everyone had a strong start which proved that they had been paying attention to the news lately, and followed that with some impressive listening skills for a marching band themed music round! We closed out the start of quiz with a speed round on which everyone scored an impressive 6 or higher, and the competition was as stiff as ever.   After the break, only Beyonce's Twins: Bowie + Prince Reincarnated? were able to pull off a perfect score on round four, which helped
