My resume is also a string of random words
Katharine

This was another busy week for Slice House as once again we set out to prove our knowledge while stuffing our mouths with garlic bread (that was just me?...oh) Yesterday was perhaps the nicest San Francisco day the world has ever seen, and the dinning room was in a good mood. I would like to give some shout-outs to the great names that we saw this week, including Venus Fly Trap House, and Sean "Spicey Spice" Spicer, the Hidden Spice Girl. My personal favorite round was the one where we tried to name an actor/actress from a ton of random words strung together, mostly because a drunk couple sitting next to me were very confused about what was going on having walked in about halfway

Pocahontas of the Galaxy Quest
Katharine

Wow, what a night for Slice House!  We had a record of 8 teams yesterday, and a completely full dining room! Participation was great all-around, and even though I'm sure everybody's March Madness bracket is in shambles, spirits tonight weren't.   First I am going to give a shout out to team "We Hope We Finish Higher Than the Half Marathon This Morning". They literally ran a half marathon and then came to quiz. I literally get out of breath walking up a flight of stairs (SPORTS) so I am the most impressed by that. They got 3rd place, which was confirmed higher than the marathon, so they are all around winners.   In other milestone

Fake it til you make it
Katharine

The theme of tonight's quiz is fake it til you make it. And by that I mean if nobody except your boyfriend shows up to quiz, just wait until random people walk in and make them play!    Following a slow week last week, things picked back up! I started with bae intent on playing (watching basketball...same thing), another group who was there specifically for the quiz, and a just-happened-to-be-there father-daughter duo who absolutely crushed it. After a few rounds two other groups joined in, and we had two tables of on-lookers who apparently both came in the beginning but decided just to watch...for the whole time. But they said they'd come back so yay!!    Unlike

I'll take a slice of quiz
QM Rockjaw

I bet that's literally the first time anyone has made that gag about this venue. The first time. FIRST TIME! Well hello quizzers! I jumped in to sub this week for the estimable Katie, and as I pointed out to our teams, I was flown in specially from England just to sub. So you got a lot of value for money out of me, I tell ya. With just a couple of teams and one latecomer (damn you daylight savings!) we fairly sped through the quiz. From the off it was clear that Make Trivia Great Again were determined to bring their A-game, and arguably, they go lucky with our visual round, playing right into their American Government knowledge. On top of that, they recognized

SO MANU PPL
Katharine

Holy attendance Batman!  This week's quiz was what everything I've been praying to the trivia gods for plus more. In fact, I started 5 minutes late because there were so many teams that the fine pizza establishment had to go get some tables from storage.  But unfortunately there were still only about as many people at quiz as there were at Trump's inauguration: like almost 30. But, one team was YUgE and had 10 people so they couldn't compete for prizes. But I'm counting and talking about them anyway. Their name was Blazn Azns (yes, spelled like that, and yes, I did say it like that). Starting off with a round with aclu all in the answers proved difficult

Was Jenny Late Because She Was Teaching Nicole Kidman how to Clap?
Katharine

This week was all about witty wrong answers. There were only 3 teams, two of which stayed until the end, but they were both pretty witty when it came to their answers. Since there’s not a lot to talk about instead I’ll give you some of the best wrong answers from the night. Disclaimer: since both teams knew they were going to win prizes, when the third team left they both started pandering to this particular Quizmaster and being quite silly. I eat that shit up so it was a good night for all. Okay, here we go: First I’ll start with the visual round. It was kind of rough and I learned that a lot of people outside of the Midwest have never seen Fargo. Come on,

The One Where There Were More Than Two Teams!
Katharine

Captain's log, Stardate 2017.51. Apparently we all can't decide on what the worst Star Trek series was and are willing to fight about it. Happy Monday/my day off/your day off/oh you don't have today off that's awkward sorry I brought it up...!! Last night at Slice House on 2nd we had a record of 6 teams participating! At some point we had two more unofficial teams who wrote some stuff down but never turned in score sheets but I'm counting them anyway. For our 3rd official quiz date at this fine pizza establishment, I am very happy. The night started out really cool with everybody making new friends. Two friends of this Quizmaster were sitting at a table and a lone

The J in LBJ is for Johnson
Scuba

Quizmaster Katharine was out today, so I had to step in and take the reins this week-but she'll be back next week. I swear, I will not criticize BART again, after taking 30 minutes to go all of 8 miles across the bay and arriving just in time to get this quiz started. We had two teams show up for the evening, pitting wit against wit. Much like any 80's movie, but lacking a montage, both teams were in the running-the first team, The Winners were confident and expecting to roll in and just take the top prize. Against them, we had one team-Team Upset. Confident top dogs vs unassuming upstarts-I've seen this movie before. Our first round had us

Size Doesn't Matter
Katharine

Hello everybody and welcome to Sunday nights at Slice House on 2nd Street! ...is what I said to approximately 7 people last night. Just kidding, I had a way better intro and everyone thought it was so funny and there were 1.5 million people there and so many celebrities and 3 Doors Down was there. But in all seriousness shout out to the 4 teams that participated in our inaugural (pun intended) quiz at Slice House, where the pieces of pizza are literally the size of your face.  They. are. YUGE.  Sorry, I think I'm taking my frustration at the lack of politically-minded group
