Whitney is my #1
KBird

We creatively reinterpreted movie history with our dead star nostalgia (nostalgia-y?) tonight. Quizzers were convinced that Heath Ledger was the top-billed actor in Ten Things I Hate About You. And there were actual shouts of outrage at the idea that Kevin Costner, rather than Whitney Houston, was the top-billed actor in Bodyguard. I actually respect that kind of passion. I also play “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” in my head like a secret soundtrack every time I sashay onto a dance floor. I’m very impressed with everyone’s geographic skills! There were lots of 8 pointers in the food/country visual round. I also learned from Wikipedia, which is

Geography - good, current music - not so much.
Miss LaLa

It began like most other Wednesday nights, except for one thing - I have no sense of actual time and midtown is the worst place to park, pretty much ever. After driving around in circles I finally found a spot and was about to walk a couple blocks to get where I was going, when I looked at my watch and freaked out! It was 15 minutes till the quiz and I was suuuuuuuuuuuuper late. Fearing no time to walk, I jumped back in the car and drove like a bat out of hell to the super convenient and incredibly cheap parking garage located practically next door. (Why I didn’t park there in the first place is beyond me.) As the blood was pumping and my heart racing

I Also Blame Jay Z
KBird

I realize not everyone won the 6th grade spelling bee like I did. Quizzers all pretty much suck at spelling as a general rule. So, I usually have to read your shittily spelled answers aloud in my head to figure out what the hell you are trying to say. Imagine my confusion when more than half the teams believed 1 billion watts was a “Jigga watt.” The rest of the developed world has this thing called the metric system. And Giga is the metric prefix for 1 billion despite the way Doc Brown pronounces in Back to the Future. I blame the public education system and also Merriam Webster for listing the soft J as an alternate pronunciation and also Christopher Lloyd and pity

May the Fourth, guys! It's the perfect time to roll your hair into two buns, or a trilogy pony (Pinterest taught me that it’s called that #WheresRey) and pull out your battery operated light sabers. But nary a Star Wars shirt or Yoda onesie did I see tonight.L But no matter. We had a fantastic quiz and I still love you all even if you love glittery vampires and glittery cats more than Jedi!

I don't know what Josh is talking about...

First - he’s totally old and as an old person, I can say that. Second- y’all can totally answer bonus questions. I didn’t even have to give a single hint last night. Third- it was wrong to blame you for Prince and on behalf of Quizmasters everywhere - I’m sorry he threw that on you.   Let’s see, what can I say that hasn’t already been said? Beer, we’ve covered that. Food - we all know it’s hella good at Cap. Garage. Staff? Totally nice and ready to help. (Hi Aaron and Anna!) Attractiveness?

Your Inability to Answer Bonus Questions Killed Prince!
The Deuce

I didn't want to bring up the elephant in the room, but yeah, Prince Died.  He clearly heard about your inability to answer bonus questions about Molly Hatchet and the Enterprise-D.  Thank god someone figured out Bhutan, lord knows who else would've died at your hands. Here's a Quizmaster's hint, if you damn kids are not gonna learn the awesomeness from the past, you need to start recruiting old nerds on to your teams.  This clearly is the tool that could step your games to the next level.  I shake my head way too many times, and you all make me feel so old when I am not, I hope!   Speaking of things you were probably barely alive for, FRIENDS

Apparently Round 7 is your favorite...
Miss LaLa

But first - it's my birthday week so I'm going to go off on a tangent. A few weeks ago I got an awesome looking gas grill free on Craigslist. Ever since then I’ve been replacing one rusty part after the other. *SIGH* Now I’m totally invested in the idea of customizing this grill and having a solid piece of outdoor cookware for the next 10 years. I could just be wasting a lot of time and money on something I should probably throw away and then just buy a brand new one. The second part of this problem is that I’m terrible at making decisions and second guess myself to the point of inactivity. So - the next time we talk, I COULD have an update

We Don't Like Them Book Things

You know those book things?  The things with the paper with the letters on em that are wrapped in stuff with pictures or leather that are kept in the house for them where you and other hobos can go in and look at porn on the free computers?  Yeah, those are called books, and we here that play at Capitol Garage don't take too kindly to them books.   I've never been yelled at more in my life than I was with all these literary questions.  Oh, you guys mildly dislike maths as well, but not as bad as the word monsters known as books.  The audio rounds were pretty solid, that was a plus!  My first nemesis at Capitol Garage T-Bone returned to put up a

First of all, Quiz Papa is so proud of how many of you that got Geordi La Forge correct in the first round.  He is near and dear to my heart!!!  Lavar Burton is actually a Sacramento Native!!!  Grew up in South Sac and everything!!   Sorry not Sorry, the question about the Mongorians was my favorite.  I love saying Mongorian, to be able to go on and complain about them knocking down our walls just made my night!!! Now on to the heavy stuff, Quantum Leap.  I know some of you damn kids had no clue what the hell that even was.  Or who Scott Bakula was.  We spent way too long on the bonus question about Star Trek: Enterprise.

Burt Reynolds' "Cigar" is actually a "Cigarillo"

A man can only drink so much beer, and it seems that beer week eventually caught up to Josh and his digestive system. He told me he had scheduled something called an “herbal detox colonic” tonight and asked if I’d cover quiz for him. I don’t know what that is, but you could probably Google it (omg, don’t). ANYWAY, what I’m trying to say is that it was my first night ever hosting a quiz! I thought there was going to be some kind of hazing process, but all the geeks were on their best behavior and I had a great time! First off, can we talk about the “Vest Dressed” visual round and a special vest I had when I was 11? Do you remember those

My name is Josh, and I like me some Beer!! So I was elated to have the folks from Oak Park Brewery there to share some of that tasty tasty goodness!  The beer round was fun and I was blown away to have some perfect scores!! Paper airplanes were flying, beers were being drunk, and you all learned how many ounces were in a growler.  Now you are in the cool kid crowd. Make sure to go out and support great venues like Capitol Garage and others that have embraced Sacramento Beer Week, our beer culture is helping put Sacramento on the map.  Did you know that we are #5 in the country for craft beer sales by percentage (34%)?  Sf beats us by only .4%, San

What a fun night at Geeks Who Drink at Capitol Garage! The beer flowed and the Geek was strong. Well, until the end when I started getting questions like “What makes it red?” (Referring to a “red state”.) That might have just been some misinterpreted snark though. Where I love some good snark, I’m also incredibly dense. (Which is why I READ pub quiz as opposed to PLAY pub quiz. Seriously, on the teams I participated with, my job was to look pretty and not fuck it up for everybody else.)   Truley though, I love it when Kress takes the night off because the loyal crowd at

I feel like every blog is me yelling at the keyboard about how you damn kids are so young with your Intendos and whatnot.  A whole table was like "What is the Wonder Years?",  It totally killed me. The only thing that made up for it was that the hot team leader verbally berated another member of the team for a few minutes for his stupidity.  I think I'm in love!!!  I even joined in hoping she could make him cry, it didn't happen, but it was awful close.

To all the books I haven’t read and the movies I haven’t seen…
Miss LaLa

I didn’t finish The Hunger Games books or the movies, The Harry Potter books, or the movies, I didn’t see Gone Girl let alone read the book. I actually didn’t read anything in Round 6 so it really should have been called “In which we spoil books you probably should have read by now”. Fortunately, as I mentioned last night, I will likely remember nothing. I have a terrible memory. I don’t retain information like, at all. So it works out for everyone that I get to read the questions and not try to answer them. (I also haven’t watched The Big Bang Theory or Family Guy.)
