Remember Unwritten Law?
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Southern Star rolled in with a bunch of goodies. Pint glasses, koozies, stickers, and a gift basket full of goodies for the first place team. (Seriously, I want that stein!) So random acquired knowledge. Growing up in the 90s, I have a bit of a hard on for alt-rock and punk-rock. My play list is full on swole of the genre. Mid scoring, Unwritten Law’s “Seeing Red” came on. Next thing I know a waitress popped up, quite excited to hear it. “Do you know the make up brand Two Faced?” I didn’t. I wear Urban Decay. “Nope. Maybe? I have no idea, but I don’t think so.” Waitress replies, really happy, “Well,

So cool a Quiz night, I thought you would enjoy it.

That title is a hiaku.   Picking up a Substitute gig is good fun.  I get to learn about a new place and see bunches of shiny happy folks ready to quiz their ASSES OFF! We quizzed and quizzed and ended up with a top three bracket of WINNERS! THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING (a rumble in the pub contestant team) took first!  SAUCY PICKLES, who was real excited about the Doctor Who Quiz, came in second.  And the so nicely named DUGGARS DIDDLERS, touched third place and other inappropriate things. The 8th Wonder Brewery didn’t really hang around but stopped by to drop off some

Oktoberfest Beer Season is Here!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out, and thank you to Saint Arnold’s Brewery for tossing all the cool swag my way. I gave out a bunch of shirts, barrel glasses, brew tour passes, and koozies. We’ve been having about a brewery a week here, and you don’t want to miss a week, lest you miss out on me… and swag. To win the shirts I made teams come up with limericks. These were the winners. (I forgot to remind folks about the rhyme scheme for a limerick, so I cut teams some slack.) Winner: Halloween this year, I’ll be the terminator // Look around the party and all I’ll see are haters // Go home alone // Reach for an ice cold Pumpkinator // Feeling good, open

The Phantom Sub
ChristinaHicks

After driving through a small hurricane to get to you, Christian's Tailgate Quizzers, I somehow fucked up the blogging process. Please forgive me! Subbing for Katie has been great, so much free stuff! Good food! Nice quizzers! Tasty beer! We all suffered through listening to Republican candidates bloviate, showed of our knowledge of Wu Tang Clan and ice cream and most of you were great at the Ear Ake audio round (which, believe it or not was not the Republican candidate one!) Karbach Brewery was out and supplied us with awesome beer and awesome prizes. No one had to go home empty handed because there were lots of pint glasses, koozies, and brewery tour passes

Your special guest
ChristinaHicks

Thanks for the great substitute hosting gig, last night Christian's! We had the folks from 8th Wonder Brewery there to unveil their newest beer, Farmhouse. The bonus beer question winners got to choose from their four great beers and ALSO got some other cool gear!  Whether your specialty was Donald Trump standing in front of walls or music with the theme of Milk and/or Honey, there was something for everyone last night. I think my favorite wrong answer of the night was that anemology is the study of 'spirits.' Beautiful. We had some competitive players last night and there was a big switch in the very last round with Team This Changes Everything pulling

Memories
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Everyone I know is on vacation right now, and many players are as well. Bring me back a suntan and out of market beer! Please… If you missed tonight, you missed some Saint Arnold Brewery tour pass giveaways. So that’s sad for you. Come back next week and maybe score some 8th Wonder Brewery tour passes! Maybe some beer or gift certificates… maybe. Any Yankee fans reading this? For the first time since I really followed baseball Derek Jeter isn’t playing. We lost Mariano Rivera the season before, which was sad. Hell, Bernie Williams finally formally retired this year. It’s weird watching the small remains of your

More Beerz!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We all survived last week, hottest week of the summer. This week looks as if it’s not going to be much happier. Holy shitballs! It’s announcement time! We’ve got several breweries lined up for the next few weeks, so here’s the schedule: August 11th: Karbach August 18th: St. Arnold’s August 25th: 8th Wonder As always, the breweries roll in with extra swag, and often times brew tour passes and such. So in addition to getting to roll with me and play quiz (a quiz now with a namesake television show airing on SyFy every Thursday night), you can win beer

Thank You Saint Arnold's!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight, and thank you to Saint Arnold’s Brewery for donating a ton of awesome prizes. The prayer candles remain my favorite give away. I’m not sure if it’s because I love the irony of taking an inherently religious item and tainting it with the sinful nectar, or because I burn candles kinda sorta often, and decorative candles are convenient when you do that sort of thing. Either way though, it’s a cool prize. Prize, prize, prize. I gave away a bunch of brewery tour passes. Those are also handy to have laying around. I’ve accumulated a decent stash of spare passes, so like, you should ALWAYS come out, because I ALWAYS have extra stuff

Eat Cake and Die
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out this hot and balmy Tuesday. (Seriously, it was like pea soup outside. Might have been actual pea soup. Hard to say.) But yeah, we had Karbach out, surprise brewery guest. I think I had exactly 201 koozies to give out, plus the pint glasses and the usual prizes. So never miss a week! You never know what the hell is going to happen! I mean, I suppose you could make some safe guesses about things that will not happen, and in that sense you do sort of know what will happen. (You know, in that negative space is actually still art sort of way.) Things that will never happen? Here is a list of ten things that, for better or for worse, will never actually happen at any

Thank you all for coming out this wet as fuck evening. I saw wet as fuck not to curse, but because when one fucks, things get extraordinarily wet. Assuming you are doing things properly anyway. I suppose also assuming you have not gone through menopause. Interesting thing I read the other day. Among the field of potential new male birth control pills and devices is a pill that actually prevents ejaculation. The dude totally cums, but he doesn’t splooge. To that I say, “A-FUCKING-MEN!” Seriously, the worst part about sex isn’t the abortion four weeks later, it’s the constant dry cleaning. I have Anthropologie sheets. I’m afraid to French kiss in bed.

Thank you all for coming out. It’s been three weeks since the last time that I saw your pretty little faces. FUUUUCK SPORTS BALL! But seriously, I’ve never been so happy to be out of a playoff season in all my life. And I think you all are too. Keep on coming in and stay tuned for more brewery night announcements. Speaking on, go on and mark you day planners (do people still have those?) or punch this into your Blackberry (those are still at thing, right?). Southern Star is going to be here the first Tuesday of August to debut their newest brew, so be one of the first to give it a go! If it’s half as good as a Buried Hatchet, it’s going to be amazing.

The North Remembers, Pepperidge Farm Remembers

     I was atop my throne, and all was quiet in Christian's Gate yesterday until a storm struck around 3 o'clock in the eve. Twas a rush of mystical beings calling themselves quizzer in search of gold and booty. I presented them with a challenge of wits that even Lord Tyrion could be proud of.        Our challenge of with covered the realm with knowledge of weaponry, betrayal, and even writing and arithmetic. We covered favorite players in the Game from Arya, Jon, and Robb to those less favorable like Cersei, Joffrey, and those dastardly wildlings.            In the end, The North Remembers, Pepperidge

Hello!

I started playing quiz with GWD at the Maple Leaf Pub. I heard they were in search of quizmasters and decided to audition. I am quite the social butterfly. so I figured: meet new people, free booze, and quiz. What more could a girl ask for?

By day, I am a middle school Industrial Technology Teacher- yes 12-14 year olds and power tools. I'm an Aggie (WHOOP!), a dog lover, and a scorpio. My favorite color is purple and one day I hope to venture to Costa Rica, Italy, and Australia. That's me in a nutshell.

Thank You Pedernales Brewery!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight, and a super fucking thank you to Pedernales Brewery for rolling in with all that beer. I’m enjoying a Robert Earl Keen honey pilsner right now. It’s delightfully crisp and I’m not getting paid a dime to say that. (I suppose in a way I’m getting paid to say that as if I don’t blog I don’t get paid. That feels like a technicality. I could have blogged without saying that and my pay for the evening would not have changed.) Blah, blah, blah. Alright. I’m going to take a moment to shamelessly promote myself. You all come every week. You like me. You might love me. One of you has an unhealthy obsession with me.

Thank you all for coming out tonight! It’s been 3 weeks by now since the last time we did this. Fucking Rockets, right? I’m a Dallas girl, so I have to say that. Truth be told, I was actually pulling for the Rockets by the end of the series with the Mavericks for the simple reason that the more games they played, the more quizzes of mine got cancelled. Boo. To. That. But since we’re discussing the Rockets. It is exceptionally likely that they will end up playing a game 5. Odds of a Clippers sweep are slim to none. If there is a game 5, it will be next Tuesday and that will interfere with quiz. You should come here anyway because
