We On One Now
Sarah

Happy Monday to all! The last Monday of March and (hopefully) the last of our chilly winter weather leftovers. Tonight’s official winner of the unofficial Beef & Barley Team Name Contest is Douche Nation (with Crazy Ira and the Douche) because lest we forget, Pawnee’s town slogan was almost “Welcome to Douche Nation” and also I really like to try to say “Douche Nation” in Nick Kroll’s voice.

Tonight’s official winner of the unofficial Beef & Barley Team Name Contest is Horton Hears a Dr. Who because I think it’s long overdue that the Doctor Who and Dr. Seuss universes collided into one amazing universe.

It Either Sounds Like Skrillex or Waffles or Tater Tots
Knickerbocker

Filling in for regular Quizmaster Sarah last night at Beef & Barley was an absolute pleasure! For those not in the know, B&B has the single best tater tots in the world. I don't even know how they can be called tater tots, as they are more of Hashbrown-Constructed Potato Latkes Cooked in Pure Happiness and Joy. Get on over to B&B on Monday nights for some quizzing and get yourself some of these delicious things before the rest of the city finds out about them... Anyway, enough about food, what about quiz? We had three small, dedicated teams competing for the win. New Year's Eve may have damaged the sound system
