Oprah, Whoopi Goldberg?? Close enough.

Another great night with my neighbors to the North, not Kingdom of the North which is almost as cold and dreary as it is outside right now, but the North of Puebs in a magical land we call Springs…the Colorado variety.

I made it through my first Geeks Who Drink PowerPoint presentation and I didn’t mess up any! I can’t believe it. The sound was way better than last week and we could all be heard and had a blast. We covered some fun movie facts, learned some details about Fresh Prince prior to his being an active participant

Of our eight teams, we saw some pretty close scoring at Public House ranging between a mere 30 points. That may sound like a lot but, trust me, I’ve seen way bigger gaps in scoring. There were some tough categories, (including those doggone Chewbacca songs!) but you all were able to make it look easy peasy! Wrapping up the night we had a second-place face-off
