Can You Find Love at Quiz?
Daniel

The short answer is no. The reasons are many, but to make a sweeping generalization that summarizes it: no one wants to talk to strangers. The only demographic that I have empirically observed approach a stranger in a bar is what appears to me as what is clinically referred to as a “douchebag.” You know who I’m talking about, so I won’t go into the details of their appearance and demeanor. The classic douchebag to which I am referring also doesn’t like playing quiz because there aren’t enough sports questions, meaning that it is a lot of people who just want to play quiz and not meet new people with whom they could have potentially fallen in love.

We Had A Threesome…
Daniel

Well, it actually started out as a foursome, but who keeps count in these situations? I do, that’s who. Not every night can be a packed bar, so I appreciate the four teams that showed up and the three who stayed the whole night. The threesome that stayed were all fierce competitors and stalwart scholars – mad respect. The scores were pretty close all the way down to the wire, but third place became pretty clear and went to Joey Bags. There was a surprise tie for first place that went into sudden death questions, and ultimately Baseball Season is Coming came up short, ending the night in second place. That meant that the New World

Thank God – No Football Questions
Daniel

Everyone else is Houston is pretty amped up about the Super Bowl. I am not. I personally don’t care for the sport. Fortunately, there were no Super Bowl or football questions last night; however, despite my not having a team name theme, there were still some Tom Brady-themed team names. We had another awesome turnout and a really wide spread on the scores. In the end, we had a tie for first place between Kevin Spacey is Kaiser Soze and Dr. Jill Biden. Both teams put up a hell of a fight and were dominating, but when it came down to the sudden death questions, Kevin Spacey is Kaiser Soze came out on top.

There aren’t even any cabinets in this room…
Daniel

Eventually, Donald Trump jokes will get old, but I still haven’t stopped asking for them. Last night’s bonus team name theme was “cabinet members that should be added just for Donald Trump.” My favorites were Secretary of Offense and Secretary of Alternative Facts. My least favorite team name was Fuzzy’s Burned Down, So Now I’m Here; yes, it is unfortunate that Fuzzy’s burned to the ground, but I hate being a rebound quiz. I always appreciate a good fake answer, and last night’s best fake answer was in round two audio round. Fuzzy’s Burned Down though the artist

Apparently, Hop-a-dillo is Easy to Make Sexual
Daniel

Quite a few teams came out to quiz last night despite the super weird fog and rain. I’m glad they did because I was very pleased with the questions from last night, especially the round seven audio round! I knew I knew the Goofy Movie song, but, alas, had I been playing last night, I wouldn’t have actually been able to positively ID the source. The team-name theme for the evening was “farcical beer names.” I did provide an example which I thought was pretty clever for some guidance: I Wish I Could Last Lager – I haven’t technically copyrighted the name, but don’t be a jerk and steal it. My favorites from the night were the two Hop-a-dildo

New York is Overrated
Daniel

After being away in New Jersey and New York for a week, it was nice to come home and give a quiz to a big crowd! Inspired by my travels, I asked teams to come up with a New York theme for their team names. Among my favorites were Poo York City and Donald’s 24 Karat Downpour, and my absolute favorite was I’m Gliding Here. Two names in particular caught my attention, but they weren’t necessarily my favorites: New York and New York Big Apple. Like I mentioned, we had a nice-sized crowd of twelve teams, and it was good seeing some of my regulars again. Pretty much everyone crushed that

Christina at Christian's
ChristinaHicks

Do you remember in junior high and/or high school when the unspoken class agreement was to try and make the substitute cry and/or leave? Or was that just at my junior high? Well, luckily, y'all were either unaware of that practice, or you outgrew it around the time you got your braces off, because you treated this substitute very nicely!  It's always fun to sub as quizmaster at Christian's because I'm so far above everyone and I can look down on you and catch you if you unconsciously pick up your phone during quiz. But that didn't happen too often, so you're good and I didn't leave a list of names for Danny to discipline when he gets back.  We had 7 teams play last

Quizpocalypse 2016
Daniel

Last night’s quiz was a true test of my own mental and emotional fortitude. I normally see anywhere from four to seven teams in a night, but last night had an unprecedented turnout: 17 teams! Despite the sheer number of quizzers, we still had a blast because no one was a dick! I was even close to keeping it on time, so I’m proud of me. For the team name bonus, the theme was a desecration of Christmas. I enjoyed mostly all of them, and my favorite five were Prancer? I hardly know her!, Feel These Navidads, Santa’s Midnight Snack: MILF & Cookies, We Let Santa Come in Our Chimney, and my absolute

Quiz & Kegels
Daniel

Having done quiz at Christian’s Tailgate Midtown for the past few weeks has been really great, and last night was another good one. The quiz itself felt pretty balanced, and we had some lively participants…yes, some of them were my family. I had one team of eight, which is technically against the rules, but they were allowed to play, just not for prizes. I went with a workout theme for the team names, and the overall best was DJ Khaled’s Major Kegels.   The scores were pretty stable for the first 6 rounds because nobody was jokering, but they really jumped up in rounds 7 and 8. At the end of the night, 3rd place went my sister’s

It’s Too Damn Cold
Daniel

Houstonians are mostly ninnies when it comes to cold weather, so Tuesday night’s 50-degree weather was uneasy, but we still had some brave souls tough it and make it to the quiz. I wasn’t creative enough to come up with an overall theme for a team-name bonus, but I’ll still give a special shout-out to the night’s first-place winners Rudolph the Red-Nosed Crack Whore. It was pleasantly disrespectful, and that’s kind of my thing. Highlights of the night definitely included the audio clip from King of the Hill and Count/Sandwich clue for the Count of Monte Cristo. Second place went to 4 Single People, 1 Married Girl,

Brothers and Burgers
Daniel

Last night was an interesting one for sure. My brother decided to celebrate his 25th birthday with us playing quiz, and the rest of my family attended; that includes my parents, my sister and her husband, and my Spanish-speaking great aunt. There wasn’t too much profanity built into the quiz last night, so I got lucky there, but one team decided to call themselves Multiple Scoregasms. I had announced a bonus for the best punny burger name, but they clearly just wanted to make me uncomfortable in front of my family. Even though there was a smaller crowd than usual, it was still a good night. As I mentioned, the team name bonus was punny burger names

Mayflower? I hardly know her!
Daniel

We are officially in the middle of fall in Houston – you can tell because it is a crisp 75 degrees at night. In the memory of a holiday that will soon be known simply as Pre-Christmas, we celebrated Thanksgiving by incorporating the theme into the team names. My top three favorites were 50 Shades of Gravy, Poke-our-hontus, and the winner of the best team name contest: Mayflower? I Hardly Know Her! All good team names last night, but those were my favorite. Mostly ups from the night, but there was a slight down. Whilst I was inviting tables to join us for quiz, one gentlemen had a less-than-hilarious quip about us “not buying

I Can't Take Pictures to Save My Life
Daniel

Almost entirely unrelated to quiz: I highly recommend watching Black Mirror; it is weird and dark, and I love it. Nicely segueing into quiz last night, it was kind of weird. I still love Christian’s Tailgate, but I’ve never had a team start in round 2 and then immediately leave – last night, 2 teams did it! I don’t understand! The only other awkward part of the evening was during the first score break when everyone heard team names for the first time. Penis joke here, the word “quiz” euphemistically substituted for male ejaculation there – you know, the standard names… until: Trump Pence. An audible groan rose out of

Everyone is Doing Stuff With Their Hands
Daniel

Major shout out to the manager at Christians Tailgate Midtown named Rigo who witnessed two women walking past his bar stumble and fall in the street and then helped them up and walked them home. While Rigo was a total boss and did a very gentlemanly thing, let’s all remember to drink responsibly…at least responsibly enough to not be falling over one another in the middle of a street. So, looks like I’ll be at Christians Tailgate Midtown for a few more weeks, and I am stoked! Last week was packed, last night was not, but both times had great quizzers, and I hope that tradition continues for the rest of November. It’s

Sadism & Stuff
Daniel

Christians Tailgate Midtown was a very solid venue with nice staff and good hotdogs (avoid phallic thoughts)! Easily one of the toughest nights I’ve witnessed for my quizzers; as it turns out, not everyone was a huge fan of Marquis de Sade or Harry Caray. Despite that, there were still some very high scores thanks to well-utilized Joker rounds. The night went on as so: Prisoners of Asskaban kicked everyone else’s asskabans all night long. The rest of the teams ended up going back and forth, but ultimately the Skanks and Ex- Skanks coming in second and third, respectively.
