The Difference Between Intelligents and Idiots
Sarah

#1 – I am perfectly aware “intelligents” is not a real pluralization of a word, but it should be. #2 – The point being, it is slightly cold out lately and the rain/snow has been coming down. Someone (and idiot) I know claimed this was a good thing because, you know, we aren’t getting too warm from climate change. Uh, “weather” is not the same thing as “climate.” Silly hooman says the intelligent.   On to today’s wet quiz. Very chill and dreary night at Crazy Mountain Tap Room with a house of regulars. In fact, some have gotten so regular that I’m not actually sure who is real friends

A Stamp By Any Other Name
Sarah

The Dutch Rudders legitimized what I expect of a real quiz team. It all started with what I assumed was akin to stickering a pole on a ski lift – I saw a weird logo stamped in lieu of a team’s name. But then it appeared again and then I realized the glory. THE DUTCH RUDDERS CAME WITH A STAMP OF THEIR TEAM NAME! However….the true meaning of the stamp elevated my respect for this team. A “dutch rudder” occurs when Person A holds the forearm of Person B while Person B is holding their own penis, thus moving the arms like a rudder to jerk some dude off. But it doesn’t stop there, nay, when there are more than one penises involved you get…A

Everybody Hates Chuck! (Better Call Saul Liveblog)
Monstar Blanko

So I didn't know that I would be subbing for you lovely people, so I didn't really have a cogent blog thought up, so I thought that it would be a good idea to live blog Better Call Saul while drinking bourbon. This was tonight's episode so I'm not sure if this makes any sense, but I be drinking so, who cares? LIVEBLOG COMMENCE!!! I love the callback to Don Eladio’s Pool, and the total disdain Hector has for Gus. When Gus gives his speech to his employees, I was ready to run through a brick wall!! I love Mike just shitting all over that pussyass Chuck’s psychosomatic condition with the battery power

Inspired by the Unicorn       
Sarah

            Timely, and also the inspiration of a quiz question – the Starbucks drink that is taking the world by storm this week has a magical name, but can it do magical things? To your body? Like make you have glittery bowel movements? This was a fact confirmed by one of the quizzers tonight – his friend, not him. This fact then led to a very downward spiral of a discussion where we (I) wondered if indigestible metallic glitter would result in sparkle coated fecal matter.  I personally think it can – have you ever seen a bathtub after a LUSH bath bomb? It’s a hot mess, as is the toilet after Starbucks’

Ambient Temperature Sushi: A Bad Thing?
Sarah

I’ve got some sushi leftovers in my car and it is 80 degrees outside. Since my dinner before coming to Crazy Mountain Tap Room was delicious AND since I’m into heavy, heavy danger, I will eat my leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I figure the worst that can happen is a soli-liquid-gas combo will exit an orifice, a risk I am willing to take. Is that too much? A bit over the line? Ah well, hell.   On to the quiz. Lt. Col Angus named himself just to hear his name said over and over as it is a bit dirty, and yes, he was flying solo. Badger Time waited until the last round to joker, thus their triumph and awarding of

Get Your Passes!
Sarah

It is the season for buying season passes for the mountains! With the mountain theme here at Crazy Mountain Tap Room, the folks were chit chatting about what pass they bought and regaling days on the steeps and deeps. Other than obviously quizzing, come out to Crazy Mountain to try their Local’s Stash beers (get the mountain reference???). Each Friday they release a new beer and this QuizMaster enjoyed the Ginger Lemon Wheat and am waiting for the “Gin & Juice” Juniper Pale Ale!   On to the quiz. There is one team that just always seems to joker in the end here to take home 1st place and

A Pie By Any Other Name
Sarah

Straight up. A Boston Cream Pie is most assuredly NOT a pie. It is a delicious concoction of spongy-vanilla cakes separated by a pastry cream layer and topped with a shiny chocolate ganache. Not at all a pie, most definitely a cake. Whatever category it falls in, it is a magnificent thing. If you have only experienced the doughnut version, get yourself to Boston (or your local bakery) and get down.   Things we learned at tonight’s quiz: Al Green and Marvin Gaye can be interchanged for answers, even though one will always be wrong. Also, Wilford Brimley Jr enjoys heavy lurking on some teams. Using the joker at the beginning made Brunch Brunch

Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Mountain Tap Room
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to the blog, where we are talking about the super fun time we had here at Crazy Mountain Tap Room. Tonight, we tested your knowledge of songs that you definitely know, but don’t know the artist, different cuts of meat (delicious), and lesser known siblings.   In the end, Viva Las Raiders took home the gold with a whopping 73 points.   Things we learned tonight: 1. Veronica Mars is still one of my all-time

The Dancing Man
Sarah

Everybody loves a tie breaker and this Quizmaster prefers to allow the bar to choose the task. At Crazy Mountain Tap Room, a dance off was determined to be the way to go. Tom Yam and Team Trinity Star sent up their best representative and a battle ensued. A patron noticed that Ed Sheeran was the topic of not just one, but of two questions, therefore Shape Of You was the correct song to choose. After 42 seconds of writhing, it was the Dancing Man from Team Trinity Star who sealed second place for his team.   Oh, and Johnny B Dead (regulars who switch up their name) remained victorious in the first spot.

There Is A Moose On The Loose!
Sarah

My mother sent me a text about seeing a video of a snowboarder at Breckenridge going down a slope along with the moose in full gallop! This was on TV in New York and was even used as the teaser to stay tuned. WHAT?!?! Seeing as how Crazy Mountain Brewery is a skier/snowboarder themed place, I felt this nugget of info was something quizzers at this venue would enjoy.   Trump University Alum used their high-end education to "trump" the rest of the bar with their knowledge. Too bad they math wasn't included in that for-profit because they came with way more than 6 players and therefore had to forfeit the win. That left Owl Exterminators and YAS Queen to get the $25 and $15

Things To Say The F-Word To
Sarah

A regular quizzer of Geeks Who Drink came in and told me he was most probably caught for running a red light. His evidence - the flash of the light as he cruised through. I've gotten those tickets and for whatever reason I have like 10 chins and a stunned look on my face. Is that what I actually look like while driving??? Another thing to say the F-word to - 'Nam. PS - Question 8 in Round 8 had us choosing whether I spoke of 'Nam movies or Dave Matthews Band songs. Hilarious. If you want to know the actual questions and be in on the joke - COME QUIZ WITH US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Also, if you like finding out you are tied in 2nd place and have to lip-sync your way to a gift

Beware Who You Heckle.
Sarah

The competition at Crazy Mountain Tap Room is starting to pick up. YAS Queen played last week and returned this week with many more compadres than a standard team should have - so they split and also became Mountain Livin'. If you check out the scores, you will note Mountain Livin' must have quit the quiz, which is true because there was a pizza dip spillage issue and general lack of attention span. But YAS Queen began to heckle the team next to them after the scores were read after Round 3. Keeping their cool, Price Waterhouse Bloopers continued their path of perfection with a few perfect rounds, cementing them 1st place.

Who Doesn't Like a 50-50?
Sarah

What a great place to be a Quizmaster! I have officially taken over Allegra's spot, assumed my duties and am diggin' Crazy Mountain Tap Room and the quizzers that play there. This was a super chill quiz with equally chill quizzers. We learned in Round 8 that X-Man movies, while seemingly badass sounding, are not nearly as bad ass sounding as a workout. Also, Darryl Hammond has been in a LOT of SNL skits, like hundreds (Round 3).   If one had walked into the tap room mid-quiz, it would have been hard to pick out the teams that were in the lead, as everyone was literally just so chill. Either this place attracts that type, or people are just getting out of work (quiz starts

Schindler the Duck
Grinch Zellweger

How could you have a round on famous Franks and not include the one and only Frank Reynolds? Aka Frankie Fast-Hands aka Dr. Mantis Tobboggan? I know there are other famous Franks but let's be honest, this one means the most to me. Take from that what you will. We had a very close match this week! It was neck and neck between the top two teams but in the end a well-placed joker decided the winner. Third place was The Dia-Beetus, second was The Jokers, and first place went to Strange But Fun. Strange But Fun were even bigger winners because they ended up winning three out of the five bonus

Beri, Boison
Grinch Zellweger

One of the great things about doing a quiz on Monday nights is that it gives you something to look forward to while you're trying to get through work without killing someone. I highly recommend it. It's therapeutic AF. Last night was a great quiz. Fun audio rounds, complicated rules, and a chance to prove we all know more cartoon mice than we were probably aware of. The most misleading moment was when people were trying to name actors based on different roles they've played and one of the clues was "Hansel." I think six out of seven teams wrote Owen Wilson. Sorry Renner, no one cares about your gritty re-imagining of Hansel and Gretel. What we care about is the underground world

What Superbowl?
Grinch Zellweger

Is the title a joke about Westworld? Is it a joke about knowing nothing about sports? Is it both? Who cares, it's topical either way. But quick PSA: If you're not watching Westworld you should start immediately. Geeks who also drink are pretty much their target demographic. One thing I learned this week is that no one knows anything about Mary Tyler Moore. Makes sense, we generally have more of a Rick and Morty crowd than a feel-good 70's sitcom crowd. People nailed it with the current theme songs round, though. Three seconds is enough to recognize a song, but absolute torture to hear over and over. The most disliked of all the clips was from The Price is Right, hands down. Congrats? Our
