Adios SXSW!
Aedri

Goodbye SXSW! Hello my favorite night of the week!  I was very happy to see my regular faces and of course all of our new ones. Round 1 started us off with questions on current events, obviously Trump was involved somehow. So was Ed Sheeran and Tyra Banks…I didn’t even you America’s Next Top Model was still a thing. The Cutie Patooties took the gold for this round. Ed Sheeran was also featured during our round 2, I wonder if someone has a crush. I’m going to have to start keeping track.  Round 3 felt a bit like Yoda was reading it, but nope! These movie quotes were put into google translator a few times. It was a very interesting

Three for all!
Aedri

It was another banner night at Javelina, of course that's no surprise, my quizzers are always the highlight of my week. Round 1 started us off with movie trivia, by far my favorite type of questions. Quizzers were given a year,  a brief description and a 3 word clue. But because this is GWD we also informed them that the initials of those 3 words ARE the first 3 letters of the movie title. All 14 teams faired very well. Round 2 was our famous musical round, however this time the first letter of each song gave our quizzers the name of our 8th artist! A Hunnid Percent got all but one answer correct, way to give 99% guys! For round 3 our teams had 2 and 1/2 minutes

I'm Back!
Aedri

After taking a week off I was excited to be back hosting at Javelina last night, as usual the crowd was energetic and ready for some fun!  We  had 13 teams this Monday, one of which was a bridal party, the Bride Tribe was ready to win! Round 1 started us with a round on Herstory, where each answer had the letters h-e-r in that order. The Hebrew Hot Dawgs started their night with a perfect score, which only makes sense...the first answer was Kosher. For round 2 we were very honored to hear our favorite muppet chef sing a few of our favorite hits, that guy has some pipes! Going into round 4 we had us a 3-way tie for first, this game

Aedri Come Back! (You Can Blame It All On Me)
Kyrsti Cravetron

Good day, Javelina!   Thank you for allowing me to host quiz with you last night! I had a lot of fun and I've got a hell of a hangover. Moist Moist Moist took home 1st place, with Untitled right behind in 2nd and The Flying Faldoodies in 3rd. It was a really close one, but congratulations! Round 1 was a toughie, each answer contained the name of an emotion or feelings. Round 2 was our music audio round. Each song featured annoying vocal riffs. My favorite in particular was Blue by Eiffel 65, brings me back to middle school days of being an annoying little turd. Round 3 was a 50/50 round (I love those),

Rain or Shine!
Aedri

Last night started out a little worrisome, the threat of rain seemed to keep Javelina a bit empty...but 10 minutes before quiz time, in they came! My trusty quizzers couldn't be kept away! Round 1, a round on recent stuff put Not the Frankest Idea in the lead,  they got every answer correct! Round 2 gave us songs that their artists admitted to hating, who would've thunk that the Beastie Boys hated Fight for Your Right? Well one team did, The Bottle Kids aced that round! Round 3 was my favorite round, as it had us choose between Howard the Duck and Schindler's List. It really causes you to think about what you thought you knew...was that Schindler's

Australia and Science
Aedri

Thinking caps were a required necessity for this weeks quiz, but all 11 teams were up for the task, as usual! Round 1 gave us reasons we might as well go to war with Australia, and my teams knew quite about the continent from down under! 9 out of 11 teams scored 7's or higher, very impressive. Next came a round on awful covers, which was pretty challenging in itself, our top scorer, getting every answer correct was the Sticky Bandits! Next came round 6, a science round so hard, we gave our quizzers half the answer! This round was a doozy, for our quizzers and this little quizmaster! Our highest scoring team was,  Hi, I'm Sara McLaughlin,

Theodore Bear aka Teddy Bear
Aedri

It was another successful quiz night at Javelina, and saw the most ADORBSSS little puppy, I took his pic, be sure to check it out. His name was Theodore James Bear, and almost...ALMOST...stole him away in my laptop bag. Our quiz started out a bit rowdy, my teams were very energetic, audio round 2 had so many great songs I had to remind about singing along, but who could blame them when Take On Me is on! The beautiful Mary Tyler Moore was honored with her own round, Rattlesnake Round-up earned a perfect score!  I think Ms. Moore would be very proud. This week we also got another visit from Casey Anthony's Babysitting Club, one of my favorite

Someone's got a case of the Mondays!
Aedri

Every week my Javelina crowd gets better and better and this week was no exception, Monday is by far my favorite day of the week. And that is due solely to my quiz teams and the ah-mazing Javelina bar staff. This week we had a few tough rounds, however all 14 of my teams kept their thinking caps on and their beer mugs full!  Round 1 had to do with Celebrity names that could also count as statements, team Corner Bar started our night off with the highest score for round 1. Round 2 gave us 6 truths and a lie, this round also introduced us the most uncomfortable team name of...Moist Moist Moist, yep that's right, 3 times. By round 3 Casey Anthony's

Those Pork Sliders are Ahhhhh-mazing!!
Aedri

Thanks to the unpredictable ATX traffic, I was able to arrive at Javelina with enough time to eat, and let me just say, the pork sliders were AHHH-MAZING! Seriously, if you have not tried them, get down there, like NOW! Ok, ok, time for our fantastic quiz night. Round 1 kicked us off with a round on current events, I am very happy to say each team did very well. Round 3 had me cracking up! Is it Brain or Butt? Team John Lewis All Day answered our final question with dat booty girl! The answer was actually brain, but honorable mention for sure! This was one of the more nail biting quizzes, going into the final round we had a three-way tie for 2nd

Happy Birthday Dave Matthews!
Aedri

Hey there, hi there, ho there! This Monday we celebrated DM's  birthday with all of his best covers! Hey, hey, he's 50, lets give the guy a break. Once again, it was a fun-filled night at Javelina, with 12 teams in tow. The game started out with a bang, and I will admit I had some feisty ones! Round 2 kicked us off with a song celebration of DM's aforementioned covers, and its no surprise that team Dave Matthews Land nailed every single song and original artist! Round 3 was a little tricky, with 3 clues for 2 points, but if you needed more clues,  you only earned 1 point, a challenge the We're Not Alex Trebek was all to eager to tackle! ERRRRR....record

Welcome to Javelina!
Aedri

Last night was our maiden voyage of the newest Geeks Who Drink venue, which is.......*drum roll* JAVELINA on Rainey Street. First, let me say thank you to Jim and his fantastic bar staff for welcoming me with open arms! And also a thanks to the tall, dark stranger that helped me assemble my banner! Last nights quiz definitely started with a bang, with 16 teams! This baby QM was a little nervous but confident of the task at hand, so here. we. go! All teams were a lively bunch, keeping me on my toes through every round, that is until we reached round 3. A hush fell over the crowd, and I swear I saw each player put on a thinking cap. Here comes Quizdoku!  A math round, and each
