How They Did Pub Quiz in the 1800s!
Brent

After a week of training a new QM, a week scorekeeping for Star Wars Night, and two weeks off, it was nice to be back at At Ease with 10 regular teams for another week of GWD. We did quiz night the old fashioned way, without answer sheets, but fortunately everyone was familiar with the rules and format so there were no issues.    There was a round on the great state of Oklahoma, the late Roger Moore, and national monuments. The Death Star Janitors, regularly in the top 3, struggled to get out of last place all night, but eventually did so, finishing 7th. Our winning team was another regular team, Space Chicken,

Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. We're all going to die. Come watch TV.
QM April

Dudes, I feel busier than a one armed lady in a butt pinching contest (I know the phrase is something else, but let me channel my inner Tina Belcher for a moment, okay?)! I quizzed in Palmdale on Wednesday and on Thursday I was at the always awesome At Ease at Barrel Harbor. Then this weekend, I spend 48 sleepless hours making a movie. I’m not really a filmmaker, but once a year I pretend I am. Wish me luck! But you didn’t come to hear about my hare-brained weekend plans did you? You came to hear about quiz. As usual, you guys brought the radness and I brought the potentially F bomb laden questions! Also, somebody finally commented on my awesome Lovecraft/Foster’s

Good Old Rock, Nothing Beats Rock!
QM April

Oh MAN, you guys don’t know how excited I was to come up to At Ease to fill in for Brent! And you certainly didn’t disappoint! Y’all brought it HARD! Plus there were multiple tiny dogs and I was squeeing about that probably more than I should. (FWIW, I’m pan-pet-sual, so any pets you have, I’m a fan! Dogs, cats, bunnies, birds are all ace with me!) I think most people were still reeling from the epic evening of Star Wars last week, because I saw lots of fandom sporting going on. Big shoutout to the gent with the Crystal Gems shirt on. #StevenForever And of course, The Death Star Janitors have matching shirts! Like I never did that with

May the Fourth be with you for a Star Wars Quiz
MikeSchramm

Hello, it's your friendly neighborhood quizmaster Mike here -- Brent and I hosted the themed Star Wars Quiz last night at At Ease, and it was quite a hive of scrumptious beer and villianously hard Star Wars quiz questions! Instead of the usual who, what, where, and when, all of the questions were about the Star Wars series of films (and we did stick to the films -- the Holiday Special only got a joke mention, unfortunately). The beer was flowing as we played "The Saga Begins" by Weird Al on the speakers, and teams like Wookie Pubes and Alderran Places faced off for eight rounds, answering questions about nonhuman species in the galaxy, the best ladies to ever fire a blaster or

Mike's originally from St. Louis, Missouri and now resides in San Diego (via Ithaca, Chicago, and Los Angeles). He works on video games during the day, and enjoys long walks on the beach and beer!

Brett

…And yes it was! Talk about a fun-filled night with friendly competition, challenging questions, and great beer. We even had a birthday! On that note, Happy Birthday Linda! Thanks for celebrating with Geeks Who Drink!  Teams packed the house at At Ease Games as QuizMaster Brett stepped up to the plate for his first QuizMaster gig. As the rounds increased, so did the competition! Teams that started out with wide lead realized that the pack of Flying Molusks, Mr Miagi's, and Late to the Gamers were creeping

Thursday the Thirteenth
Brent

Another full Thursday night of GWD at At Ease Games this week, with a fair mix of new and regular teams. So far, I’ve started every night with the same great song — Baba O’Riley by The Who — and so far no one has voiced a desire for a new one. It sets the mood, if you will, and gets everyone in the right mindset for two hours of intensity.   It’s hard to keep up with Donald Trump’s latest reign of terror, but team M.O.A.B. insisted they were just the Mother of All Beers. By the end of the night, even his competition was rooting for The Librarian, and when I flubbed the final standings,

Training Day without Guns or Drugs
Brent

Another full house at At Ease Games last night, where I had the pleasure of training new San Diego quizmaster Brett, who is officially ready for his own weekly venue. In the meantime, we had mostly regulars, including a birthday party. Cheers and beers were aplenty.   Fake Eddie Vedder sang some uncomfortable songs and creeped out most of the room in Round 2. Technical issues in Round 7 led to a great lesson for Brett on improvisation, as we were able to somewhat smoothly move to the regularly planned audio (as opposed to video) round. It took three months, but a team finally offered me (cold) pizza. Much appreciated.   Two heavy-hitting regular teams

We Look GOOD! (In Pictures)
Brent

If you didn’t believe the folks at At Ease are serious about Geeks Who Drink, check the pics of The Death Star Janitors in their new uniforms. They were killing it too, until a round on female genitalia stumped their matching asses (also pictured?? for some reason). Looking’ good, nerds!   New record for teams — 15 — even two different Dixon Fucked Up squads. Vanessa and Doug from The Blissful Blisters won a GWD box of seriously sweet swag, including a shirt Vanessa rocked for Thursday night (also pictured). My favorite song ever, "All Star" by Smash Mouth made

Happy POPCORN to YOU!
Brent

Anyone who knows me or talks to me for more than five minutes knows I love popcorn. Microwave Gourmet popcorn. I live it, I sell it for work (and fun), and at Barrel Harbor @ At Ease Games last night, I was giving it out like I was back at the Costco free sample booth.    Two regular teams (The Death Star Janitors & Dixon Fucked Up) celebrated birthdays with us, and for that they each received a bag of our bestselling flavor, caramel with chocolate. I threw a bonus question into the visual round about Travis Barker’s  (and my) alma mater (Poway High School), and Kimberly from Beer Baes, won a bag of

Back on Top
Brent

The Return of the Death Star Janitors took place last night in a hotly contested, 10-team, down-to-the-wire affair at Barrel Harbor at At Ease Games. Heading into the final two rounds, THREE teams (Dixon Fucked Up, the DSJs, and Bored Gangs - a new team) were tied for first. The luck of Chewbacca was the difference in the end, however. Someone has made a request that GWD stop using Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl as an answer, and that person was me. This shit is really getting B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Can't believe that was a Billboard Top song. Trump's America. Let's do it again next Thursday. 8 o'clock sharp!

Match Made in Miramar
Brent

It took me six weeks, but I finally mustered the courage to visit the “other side” of Barrel Harbor @ At Ease Games, GWD’s hottest new Thursday night venue. The brewery side is home to a lot of “gamers” (which they prefer to “nerds”), but the game shop is where the real magic is. Literally, I think they play Magic the Gathering, but they definitely play Dungeons and Dragons, an elaborate game called Warhammer, a hundred other games, and the thousands of accessories needed to full experience them.    Wow (not World of Warcraft). I used to think my roommate was a little too into wrestling. These gamers live to

Never Too Soon!
Brent

Last night we had a memorial service for Bill Paxton, during which someone shouted, “Fuck Bill Paxton!”    So, yeah. Another wild night and full house in Miramar this week. Disrespectful? Sure. But that’s more fun, and it’s how we like things at At Ease on Thursdays. Chris Martin got no love on his 40th birthday.    We had Pizza & Beer (Hell Yeah!), in the presence of the Pizza King & Queen and their mooching subjects. Bukkake! The Musical featured Julie Andrews, a classy upgrade from Pitbull last week. They battled for 2nd with the Space Chicken,

A Baker's Dousin, Cozen...

Thirteen teams!? Hell yeah, gang.    It was another full house Thursday night at what has quickly become the hottest new quiz night in town. No taco trucks? No problem. Some teams ordered a pizza. No one has shared, yet, which is too bad. There may or may not be an extra 15 points available for whoever slips me a slice of Barbecue Chicken. In fact, I think I’ll deduct 15 points from the next team that eats pizza in front of me without sharing. New rule. Sorry.    Three dogs in the house tonight. And more minors, but this time the 12-year-olds were not only helpful, providing 8 perfect answers to the visual round on Reading

You're Good Enough, You're Smart Enough, And Doggonit - QMs Like You
Ash Plissken

I had a team say to me after the quiz this week that they didn't think they were up to the challenge of playing Geeks Who Drink.  If you guys are ever feeling down or not good enough to play the quiz just remember that Obi Wan Kenobi's midichlorian count was so low he almost didn't even get accepted into Jedi training. He was passed over as a padawan numerous times because he wasn't considered to be skilled, powerful, or obedient enough - to the point where he was actually sent to basically be a farmer for the Jedi order instead of trained as a Jedi knight. He didn't let that stop him, though. He worked hard enough, and believed in himself

Taylor is a bitch she's a big fat bitch, she's the biggest bitch in the whole wide world she's a stupid bitch if there ever was a bitch, she's a bitch to all the boys and girls! I'm a total Gryfferin (Gryffindor with Slytherin tendencies) who rides beneath the sigil of House Stark while faithfully serving the Jedi Order. I've hosted quiz in four different states and nine different cities. I hate almost everything - but I especially loathe the movie Frozen. My drink of choice is anything that's free and chug-able. Nowadays you can find me ranting on the microphone at Quad Alehouse in San Diego. Come check it out - I can guarantee that you won't be worse than mildly disappointed!

Pour Me Another, Richard Branson!
Brent

Ever visit your alma mater, see the overwhelming stress on every young face, and smile because you no longer worry about things like grades and homework and finals? Not all Americans were overwhelmed this week. Former President Obama hung out with Richard Branson on a private island taking selfies and sipping champagne. He heard about all our stateside bullshit and probably couldn’t help but smile. Not because he doesn’t care. It’s just not his problem anymore. He graduated. The Death Star Janitors (and Chewbacca the dog) added a few members to defend their title from last week, as did Dixon Fucked Up. The Cupcakes turned
