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

Crash Test Monkeys

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
Chris

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

Perineums? Perinees? Perinea!
Chris

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
Nicole

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

A great turnout, high scores, 8-bit audio, first time quizzers, rainbow unicorn rubber ducks, and Tommy back behind the bar.  What more could a girl ask of quiz?   6 teams had perfect scores after the first round, 4 after the second, and 2 after the 3rd (Well done More Drink Tokens and America: Ranked #1 for Bear Illiteracy)!  There was some serious joker action happening during round 2 as well, which led to some of the highest scores I've ever seen going into our first scoring break.   Although no one made it all the way through quiz with a perfect score, the high round scores continued

Keeping (chins and middle fingers) up
ElizabethLovesCats. And puns. (not cat puns)

What a lovely bar to sub in. Thank you for having me, Pintsters!! I'm excited to come back in two weeks. I could tell right off the bat that you were an amazing group, by the sheer number of Trump golden shower jokes I got showered with (yuk yuk) all night. Of the two team names, Obama's Out, Trump Urine, was my fav, but Two Girls One Trump kept their chins (and middle fingers up) for an overall game win.   A lot of late comers diving right in, strangers coming together to play, and horrible, awful, amazing youtube karaoke made it an amazing night. My favorite was the utterly unforgettable screeching of Aqua's Barbiegirl.

Elizabeth is a theatre artist, performer, designer, and activist. While she has a fondness for all mental ephemera, her best quiz topics are really '90s pop culture and Shakespeare, and she's pretty lost on anything sports, much to her father's chagrin. She once won a quiz for her team by naming all four stars of "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer." It was a proud moment. In addition to pub-quizzing, Elizabeth performs interactive murder mystery dinner theatre, creates performing arts programming for a sexy shop in Brooklyn, and is a member of several theatre companies, including the DLP. She is wearing a mustache and hat in her avatar because she's dressed as Hercule Poirot in that photo. If there were a quiz round on Agatha Christie, Elizabeth would totally kill. (ha! puns!) Elizabeth loves a well mixed negroni, rainy days, and everything about her cat. You can find her on the internet at: ElizabethWeitzen.com

Those poor, poor Silverback Gorillas (and other things we learned last night)
Nicole

Ahhh Pint, it sure felt good to be back inside of you hosting quiz last night!   It was great to be reunited with some of the regulars, as ROJAS and Little Batches were in attendance as usual, but also amazing to meet some visiting quizzers in Just Here to Watch Zombieland who didn't allow the movie to distract them! Right from the start, quiz last night was a super tight race, with over half of the teams in attendance scoring perfectly on round one!  Round two was all about music, and proved to be more of a challenge for this crew.  I was excited to learn how much you

Fare Thee Well
Carol

Hey guys! Thank you all for coming out last night, it was a night to remember, we recapped the year in stuff and some girl yelled "I love dick!" randomly. I mean, way to be subtle, girl. We had team 7 teams come through with Wanzos winning the prize for most excited team to be there (and best god damn fuzzy sweaters). Wham! There Goes Leia had a late start but managed to win the 2nd to last place prize - the secret is to try your best, but miss three rounds, that's how you win! Rojas once again made an appearance and scored themselves 2nd place AKA 4 Pint Nickels, but no cookies

My honored guests for the Pringle party didn't show.  And I wore my prettiest wool under pants.  Wth! So we gave your Pringles away, Booty!  On another note, Chibs and the gang (AKA The Cat's Meow) made it and won 1st place. While team Leg Drop Soup missed it by 3 points landing them in 2nd. Let's blame it on the new guy. Shout to Drunken Fist who won a can a Pringles Regular and popped out of the bar like a boss while C U Next Wednesday celebrated their win by leaving one of their teammates out of the victory pic.

Gah! For the love of god, people. This blog comes to you from a panicked moment after singing karaoke for 3 straight hours and remembering that I had a blog waiting for me at home. You can't karaoke and be held in one place. I'm on top of the world right now.Let's recap quiz before I get in shiv mode. I only shiv if I love. I know, weird, but you'll understand when you've seen something so cute all you want to do is destroy it. I.e that squirrel who tries to bury a nut in a Bernese mountain dog's fur.

Hello everyone, it's me Carol or Caroleen as my kickboxing instructor has been calling me for the past year. To be fair, I called Jason Justin on the mic last night, how embarrassing. My old lady brain is showing. You don't know this but I'm actually 312 years old. Hence the old lady name. I just keep in good condition because I drink a lot of green tea and do Tai Chi, and draw on the energy of the Dark Dimension. Welp, moving on. Let's talk quiz! We had 12 teams last night! Sorry We're Late and Always Late managed to squeeze into the game, ahem, late. But of the two Always Late managed to score the 2nd to last place

I was so excited to be joined by 7 teams tonight at Pint despite the rain!  I had two teams who were brand new to quiz - welcome Jose and Bears + Sluggs - and who wandered in with no idea what they were getting into... Hopefully I didn't scare anyone away and will see you guys again soon! Tonight was such a fun quiz, I was super excited to host my first Raise The Bar round, which this crew did a great job on!  Also among their strengths were pirates, movie quotes, and the number two. We had a very tight race for the middle of the pack, with Booty, Rojah, and The Oodles all
