The Leaders, They Are a Changing
Kate

Oh. My. Glob.  The rain.  The rain will not end.  And when it rains on a Monday, we drink beer and play the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz.  We had a great night.  Round 3 was a wee bit tricky but everyone had a great time.  The lead fluctuated all night but we ended up with KP & G coming basically out of nowhere to grab first place and Le Pen is Mightier pulling in second (I may or may not have thought their name was Le Penis Mightier for part of the night). We had some great beer, some great laughs, and some of us thought that Pet Cemetery was a coming of age film. Thanks to everyone for coming out.

The late blog
Kate

Well for some reason this didn't post and I swear I wrote one but, whatever.  I blame the computer or the gremlins that live in the Internet.  Either way, I'll keep this short. We had 12 teams come out and play with us.  Sweet Chowder narrowly bested Madison Lied and Golden Snitches, Petty LaBelles, and The Mother of all Bongs all tied for 3rd place. A huge thank you to all the folks at Joymongers. I'll see you all next Monday at 7:30pm.

Spring Has Sprung... Again
Kate

What an absolutely stunning day of weather we had in Greensboro.  We had the garage doors open at Joymongers, we, as always, had a lovely beer selection, and we had ourselves a pub quiz. We had 16 teams (two of which left early but, they still count).  Gorsuch and Such had the early lead but came in second to You Finger It Out. We had one of the hardest audio rounds we've had since we started Geeks Who Drink at Joymongers.  However all our teams knew the stage names of the Spice Girls and almost everyone could correctly tell the difference between who was a Marvel superhero and who was a RuPaul's Drag Race contestant.

The One When The Tarheels Win The Championship
Kate

The title pretty much says it all.  We started trivia 30 minutes early so we would be finished with our quiz in time for tip off and wouldn't you know, we were done just before the Star Spangled Banner played. We had a great night, 12 teams played with us with team Bring Back The Szechuan Sauce taking home the win, and My Tub is Really Deep and Pink coming in second. Thanks to everyone who came out.  We will be back next Monday at our regular 7:30 time.  See ya'll then.

Maybe its the weather or everyone is hung over
Kate

*ANNOUNCEMENT*  Next weeks Pub Quiz (April 4th) will start at 7:00pm instead of 7:30pm so we can makes sure we are done with this quiz before the championship game starts.   So apparently there is this thing called March Madness.  And we here in the great state of North Carolina are crazy for it.  Sunday night UNC Chapel Hill played University of Kentucky in what could be called quite the barn burner.  The Tar Heels won and the whole state partied.  Because of this, I assume, is why we had a smaller than average crowd for our quiz this week. A great excuse if I've ever heard one. We still had a great time with the fabulous people.

Someone Loves Ed Sheeran
Kate

Hey everyone!  Sorry for the late-ish post.  I'd say its been one of those days but its really been one of those months.  But enough about me me and my problems. Pub Quiz at Joymongers was so much fun this week.  We had 15 teams this week and everyone played their butts off. Even in the 6th round, which was all about Igor Stravinsky, two teams still managed to get them all right. I tell ya, we had a room full of smarty pants. Team Save Big Bird managed to win with a massive score of 85, followed by Larry and the Brown String and E=McHammered in 2nd and 3rd. My favorite team name was Only

That One Movie with Hulk Hogan
Kate

Well Greensboro, we escaped what most people would call the worst of the storm.  I, however, world have preferred snow to 37 degrees and raining.  That's North Carolina in March, I suppose.  Alas, the quiz goes on. We had 13 teams come out and play with us.  We had a rounds on X's and O's, soprano singers, and bad Amazon movie reviews. In the end, Topical Team Name beat out the competition for first place.  Just The Two Of Us managed an impressive 2nd place finish. We will be back next Monday at 7:30pm at Joymongers.  We will see you then!

Was Julia Roberts in Step It Up 2?
Kate

Hello Quizzers!  It was another fantastic night at Joymongers despite the defeat of my beloved UNCG Spartans.  We had 14 great teams come out and quiz with us. Everyone was really good at figuring out the movies in round one.  Except Steel Magnolias threw some people off and I got some interesting answers for that one. We were not so good at figuring out the last names of detectives.  Some like Mars and Monk were pretty easy, others not so much. All of out teams are great and we had a bunch of great teams names this week.  Mar-a-lago's code name is now "Golf Course One" and Tits N' Grits (and Legs N' Eggs) were

Somebody Once Told Me
Kate

Hey Quizzers!, We had another great Monday night at Joymongers!  10 teams played with us (well, 11 started but they didn't even make it to round 2) We were serenaded by the Swedish Chef, played like tourists of New York, and muddled our way through massacres. And Wow, that video round.  While it was clever, I never want to hear that song again. While And The Oscar Goes To La La Land had the highest score, they were disqualified for having too many team members.  The irony was lost on no one.  First place went to It's Never Game Over, Man while #notmyoscars won second place. Thanks to

It's Not Called Stanky Leg
Kate

Ah.  Another fantastic night at Joymongers.  The weather was gorgeous and the folks at Joymongers had the big garage doors open to let the breeze in.  Warm breeze, cold beer and a fun (but rather tricky) quiz. We started the night off with 15 teams.  I must say, the Joymongers crowd really upped their team name game.  Especially Dawson's Creek was one of my favorites, mostly because I know there is a story there.  Just when the teams start figuring out how the Pub Quiz works, they mixed it up.  A video round that required naming directors.  Audio round consisting of a lot of songs people knew of but struggled with the artist.

The One with All The Anatomy Jokes
Kate

Maybe it was the changing weather. Maybe it was because of Valentine's Day.  Maybe it was the beer. Maybe everyone one was just high on life.  Whatever it was, between my voice making me sound like a 13 year old boy and a plethora of potty humor, this weeks Joymonger's trivia got a wee bit silly. From cracking jokes about alternative names for waist packs (vag vessel) to other things (besides chopsticks) one shouldn't leave sticking out of rice, the jokes from the quizzers were on point. Team Bigly Chewing Gum squeaked out a win over Larry and the Brown String

That One Was Really Hard
Kate

This weeks quiz was a doozy.  Between the science category and and a tricky Sooner or Later category, teams struggled a bit this week.  Regardless of difficultly, everyone seemed to have a great time. We laughed about war with Australia, we listened to some bad musical covers and watched some movie clips with very strange soundtracks. Team Oh Shit! squeaked out a win over #Notmychampions.  A Quantity of Tacos was my favorite team name of the night. We will be back next Monday at 7:30.  Join us at Joymongers!

This is Not A Pub Quiz Blog
Kate

I wasn't feeling so well during this weeks trivia but I dipped myself in hand sanitizer and I barrelled on through for the love of the Quiz (and my fabulous Quizzers) so some of the finer details of the quiz got lost in a Nyquil haze.  I do remember we had a few teams that absolutely aced our audio round this week and that many teams struggled remembering Tom Hanks movies.  Jedi Dick Tricks squeaked out a win, beating The Petty LaBelles (who had the lead most of the night) by just two points. Favorite team name goes to Endless Love: Stevie Wonder/ Helen Keller Tennis Match. Thanks to everyone

Alternative Team Names
Kate

It seems as if the news of "Alternative" facts have all but taken over and this week we had 3 "Alternative" team names, 2 of them identical names, resulting in one team becoming a "too".  First time I've ever had that happen but thankfully everyone was cool about it. No one guessed that 24K Magic was the impostor but we had a lot of grammar junkies who know their commas. Most of all we had a lot of fun. Alternative Answers won first place. Larry and the Brown String (aka Joymongers bartenders) technically came in second but Tuck Frump went home with the prize. This American Carnage with Ira Glass

What a Difference a Week Makes
Kate

Between the College Football Championship and the icy roads, last week was a bit light.  Well, Greensboro Quizzers made it up to me.  Just in time for my birthday. We had 12 teams, a couple a beers, a great food truck, and a great time. The 90's covers were hilariously awesome.  However, the song Common People confused some people.  I don't know whether it was the song, or William Shatner singing that threw teams for a loop.  Most team struggle to remember the last three UK Prime Ministers or the name of the Crystal Palace.  In the end, Apocalypse... Friday won with 81 points followed by Bidenbros Olympic Medal with

Snow, Ice, Beer, and Pub Quiz
Kate

So when it snows 8+ inches in Greensboro, NC everything pretty much shuts down.  When it snows and then we get an arctic blast of cold, most people don't really want to go anywhere.  That's why even two days later, Quiz night was a little on the light side (population wise).  However, the show went on. We had a mere four teams but by George we had fun with our slightly more intimate setting.  We learned that at least one player REALLY likes Dave Matthews, and no one has really been following the lead scorers for the NHL. In the end Its Not A Joke If You Have To Explain It ended up with the win but not without some really stellar competition. A
