Take Me Out to the What Now?
Rachel

America’s pastime has a (public domain!) song associated with it, but wow, was it rough listening to some famous and infamous Americans butcher it. Not as rough as listening to some of the terrible karaoke that I subjected you all to, but I appreciate you being good sports through the torture. There was some competition for the top spots throughout the night, but Drink About It and It Burns When IPA stayed in first and second respectively throughout the evening. Team Panda tried an interesting strategy where they just guessed “Donkey” for almost every answer… unsurprisingly this did not bring them much success.

Gazizza, My Dilznoofuses
Rachel

Remember that episode of NewsRadio when Bill could only use public domain songs... yeah. That's kinda what last night was like. I appreciate all of the feedback, really. We're working on it... Until then, enjoy this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WxYSNvEZfM   Speaking of working on it, all of last night's teams put forth excellent effort, but a few teams managed to pull up to the top. Congrats to Dorn Stars and Quiz My Pants for taking home prizes. The Comey Employment Comission was close, but like James Comey, just missed the mark slightly.

What Did the Buffalo Say When He Dropped His Kid at College?
Rachel

Bison. It was a tough night at 7 Locks, but we had fun celebrating a birthday on team Pandamonium. Animal slippers are always a good fashion option! The team was excited for a night out, and they definitely win the spirit award for the evening. I know a lot of you felt defeated when you didn't score too many, but don't be discouraged! Some of last night's rounds were tough, and there is always next week! We had some new teams win bonus pints on their first night - always fun! Congrats to Oedipus and the MFers, The Dogtors, Marilyn & Ted, O'Reilly's Autoerogenous Parts, and Pandamonium for their correct bonus answers. The top scores

Those Juggling Props do Look Like Penis Fingers...
Rachel

Good thing nobody brought their lion to the bar tonight, because allegedly Maryland has some strict rules on where you can bring Leo. A quick Google search tells me that the ordinance barring you from bringing your lion to the movies in Baltimore likely grew out of an MGM publicity stunt. I remained curious though, so I took a quick dive into the Baltimore City Code and came up empty. Guess the law is no longer on the books, so you're free to bring Simba to see Guardians of the Galaxy next weekend.*   Bonus beers went to PANDAmonium, Wheat Snack Bread, Turd Ferguson, PTW, and Yummy Crepes.   Congrats

Spelling Doesn't Count...
Rachel

...yet a surprising number of you spelled Yggdrasil correctly. As Bill is the Worst pointed it, some trivia nerds may have been exposed to it earlier in the day. To be honest, I struggled with the spelling earlier in the day and the pronunciation in the evening, so not the best day for me and the Norns. All that aside, we did have a packed venue and lots of fun. Congrats to The Nuclear Optioned for the second highest score and the first place prize for the evening. The United Airlines Reaccommodation Unit had the highest score for the night, but they are only eligible for all the glory, which they will receive as

The best thing to do is to get your ass out of here. Best way that you can. Catch the midnight express.
Rachel

Just popping in with some quick updates and winners: Bonus winners Screw Trivia! Give me a Beer got what they were asking for after round 3. The other teams that won free pints throughout the evening were Bloody Bib, Drink About It, Oedipus and the MFers, and Wonks in the World. The top prizes went to Bazinga and Three's A Crowd. Wrong answer of the night goes to Oedipus and the MFers, who wrote "Midnight Express" instead of "Polar Express." Yes, both of these movies involve trains, but only one

Quiz My Pants
Rachel

They say if you do something for long enough, you're bound to see everything. (Ok, fine, I just made that up. But it sounds convincing.) I've been QMing for a few months now, so I guess it's inevitable that there were two teams with the same name. I called for "Quiz My Pants" to send someone up... and both Quiz My Pants teams did. I was going to make them perform a feat of strength or play rock paper scissors for the name, but the team formerly known as Quiz My Pants was gracious enough to change to the Quizmasters and that is how that story ends.   Speaking of seeing everything, shout out to the med student(?) on team who was kind

Will Ferrell is Not the Answer I'm Looking For
Rachel

It was great to see another giant crowd at 7 Locks Brewing last night. It’s always nice to see the usual teams and welcome new friends. I’m sorry you all had to suffer through a variety of painful experiences last night – whether it was me trying to pronounce places in other languages or really long words (let’s just stick with MEG), or Chewbacca, let’s call it singing. I still think we had fun despite all of that. Puffin G Funk killed it on the bonus questions – they were the only ones to get the Round 4 bonus, plus we had some type of psychic connection going on because they were remarkably accurate when it came to guessing my

The Call is Coming From Inside the Microwave
Rachel

It was an intimate night at 7 Locks with 11 teams competing for glory and gold. I was surprised at how similar Tennessee Williams and Nashville sound when read in a deadpan tone – and it looks like you were too as that was the most difficult round of the evening. Most people did well on mascots and I-ography, leaving the random knowledge round to separate the top from the bottom. Although I only asked for four, Dr. Bob’s showed off their nerd skills by correctly naming all six playable Super Smash Bros characters not from the Mario or Pokemon universes. Nerds! A special shout out to last place team French Toast who did pretty well

7 Locks of Love
Chris

What a tremendous turnout! Yuuuuge crowd! (Shout-out to team Alternative Facts) I am a new Quizmaster for Geeks Who Drink, so my experience is limited, but if I am not mistaken the entire bar was participating in Quiz! I have never seen so many people furiously scribbling answers, furtively conferring in secrecy for that coveted gift certificate. We started Round 1 with 18 teams, already an impressive turn out, but round 2 saw two additional teams get into the fun, and round 3 also had a new arrival. Props to Quizzy McQuizface, Biker Bullies, and Bear Hugs for battling hard, despite other teams having more opportunities to score

Spiderman 2: Too Many Spidermen
Rachel

Guys, can we talk? I am CONCERNED that so so so many of you thought that Weekend at Bernie’s is a Billy Wilder film. I believe a round or two of classic cinema questions are in order in the future to get everyone into shape. And speaking of the cinema… oh that movie clip round was a real downer. There’s nothing like getting your heartstrings pulled at eight times in a row with the emotional trauma of Iron Giant and the Brave Little Toaster just hitting you in the feels. I recommend we all take a moment to reflect, with the accompanying soundtrack of Manny Pacquiao serenading us with his rendition of Sometimes When We Touch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqhn2jA3s74 It’s

You Have Died of Quizentery!
gabriel

Oregon Trail Was Not A Book!!!Seriously.  I appreciate your nearly slash fic dedication to dying of dysentery and fording rivers, but Oregon Trail was a game.  A computer game.  It's now also a card game (talk to me about my OT obsession anytime!).  But it most seriously was not a book featured by GOD Levar Burton on Reading Rainbow.  If the 80s taught you anything...(the 1980's not the other kinds).  So wrong answer of the game goes to basically everyone tonight who said that Oregon Trail was a kids' book.  Go back and buy more bullets, oxen, and yokes, because you're going to need them when the zombie apocalypse comes.  I'm glad

Is This Thing On?
Rachel

How do you follow live band karaoke? With jokes about awkward international handshakes, natch. While most teams did pretty well identifying the actual world leaders, Oedipus and the MFers swore they saw Tony Stark, TMNT used “French PM” as their default “we don’t know this so we’ll guess” answer, and a whopping two teams called out Nancy Reagan instead of Ronald… oops. It was definitely a long night at 7 Locks Brewing, with Creamy Dream Meme Team only getting one point in the fast food round by answering a few questions with the brutally honest phrase: *I think I drank too much* instead of

It turns out that you're good at slooooooooow jams. Like really good at slow jams. Seven teams scored 13 points or higher, and six of those teams Jokered, so we were off to a fast start. Ultimately, they're perfect score on that round couldn't save Puffin G Funk from a much harder movie round, and ADD ooooo Shiny was able to edge them out at the end. Throughout the night, free beer went to ADD oooooo Shiny, Puffin G Funk, Mahi's Red Rocket, Sofa King Smart, and Team Rocket. If you can't win by scoring the most points, you can certainly try to amuse the QM by changing your team name every round, as Calvo, aka

Pizza for Becca
Rachel

We had a full house at 7 Locks Brewing last night, with 17 teams competing for gold (well, gift cards) and the Bad Hombres competing for glory. The Bad Hombres jokered round 1 to hold on to an early lead, but ultimately, it turned out that a few extra minds weren't enough to keep them at the top. Like the Red Wedding but 4 Trivia, A Tribe Called Questlove, Crouching Girl Hidden Cucumber, We Eat Ewoks and Puffin G Funk took home bonus beer. We had a few teams making debuts, notably We're New Here, who will not be winning the creativity prize this week, but there is hope for the future. If you stick with that name,
