Awww, Poor Cher
The Deuce

So Round 2 just made me realize Cher has been robbed. She received a lifetime achievement award last night at the billboard awards, but they won't let her in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Sounds fishy, they let ABBA in. Time to start writing letters people. To someone at least, an aunt, an uncle, somebody, I'll let you choose. Stay cool kids, its so freaking hot out already, I was so happy to see how many of you showed up despite that. It has been a great ride being your quizmaster, and I look forward to coming out to play soon and kicking all your asses! Until Next Time...

Babies Cheat
The Deuce

I've said this once and I'll say it again, never trust a baby at a quiz night. Those little buggers find all kinds of ways to cheat. "But Josh, they're ohhhh so cute, they can't even talk. How can they cheat, tell me that?" Well I'll tell you what, so many ways. Have you seen those baby movies where they're actually genuises? What about Look Who's Talking, or Look Who's Talking Too? 'Nuff said, they have their ways. And look what happened here, the team that won the tie breaker for second to last? Oh here's a surprise, they had a cute baby on their team! Coincidence? I think not. Babies, you have been warned, I'm watching

We Survived This Weekend!!!
The Deuce

We did it everybody!!! We survived such an unruly weekend, Star Wars Quiz, then Cinco De Mayo, then the derby, and perfect weather to top things off!! Not gonna lie, it might've a super hungover day for your own quizmaster, but by the grace of Thor I was able to rally in time for trivia. It was such a great evening for a quiz, not too warm, great beer on tap, and a few pups running around. Did you guys see the Tapigami Millenium Falcon?! Other than the frame and lighting, it is made with just masking tape!!! It's so amazing, in fact I've included a picture of it plus the flyer for the artist. So we had a couple of rough rounds, but as always you all perservered and didn't take

A Mandalorian Walks Into A Quiz...
The Deuce

So the Star Wars quiz is coming this May the 4th, and to prepare for it I decided to break out the Mandalorian Armor. New Helvetia Brewing Company Owner Dave Gull wanted a treat for his players, so I decided to come out dressed to the nines. The amazing part was that it turned out to be our greatest turnout yet! Boy was it hot, but it sure as heck was worth it. You guys were so much fun and make hosting such a great time!! A big shout out to Paula for her assistance which allowed me to play dress up! Remember the "Let The Wookie Win" Star Wars Quiz is this Thursday at Sactown Union Brewery. Make sure to register for it, spots are filling up fast. Otherwise I look forward to

Let Me Buy You A Drink
TheGeekAmy

Well.. tonight was fun. Good old Deuce ended up winning ticket to Nick Offerman, so I stepped up to sub. I mean I can't make him miss Nick Offerman right? I met some awesome creatures tonight and had a blast hosting/semi-playing with you all. I learned quite a bit from you all night. Lesson #1- you all know about gerbils. Not sure if there is some Richard Gere type shit going on there, but I was impressed by the consistent correct answers on that round. Lesson #2- you know nothing about Cop movies. I mean seriously this should have been a walk in the park. Who doesn't love a good old cop thriller or comedy? Just watch Cop Out. You'll love it. I promise.  Lesson

We came, we ate candy and then we left. And some quizzing, yeah. But candy. And beer. But candy.
Miss LaLa

I’m actually genuinely surprised that we still had candy at the end of the night. But considering how much we all probably consumed during the day (or maybe that was just me) I probably SHOULDN’T be surprised. It was a nice mellow afternoon of biting the ears off of chocolate bunnies, then escaping the family to drink beer and play pub quiz. You need that daily dose of immature brain bending questions to keep your mind limber for the upcoming week. I get it. Believe me, I totally get it.   I always love coming out to New Helvetia.

I Blame Everything On The Dog
The Deuce

So you guys have not had the privilege of meeting wee lady Sansa yet, but she is a menace. As I write this this morning I am waiting in the Vet Hospital the 4th time in 4 days. You could tell I was beat and counting was very hard with me. Your patience as I missed an entire question was just shy of angelic. I'll make sure to bring the little lady over on the 23rd when she is all good to go. You'll see a pic of the brat in there. Congrats to the Massholes Drivers for taking First Place early and holding it throughout the night. Next week you get the pleasure of Miss Lala (Lara) hosting for you guys while I march in San Francisco in my Mandalorian

What a night!! Happy to see so many of you come in even with the super great weather. I love starting my week with hosting you guys, and I thought I'd be bummed not getting to stay out and play in the sprinklers, but I'll tell ya what, it's awesome hosting here with all the glass and having sunlight the whole quiz. Broadway is always prime for people watching, it never disappoints! Also we learned that one of our writers is on a Real Genius kick, if you have not seen that movie, do so. It's such an 80's movie. Can't wait to see you guys next week!! Until Next Time...

I apologize for this late post, I thought I had posted it, but never hit the post button!! Off to quizmaster jail I go!!!! I battled Montezuma's Revenge to make it to trivia Sunday Night, that may explain why I am a little slow on getting this in, pushing buttons is hard! First, I must say you guys should know us better by now, Respect By Otis Redding was definitely a trap we laid out for you. A few of you didn't bite and tried for someone other than Aretha Franklin, but most everyone fell for it. Well don't feel bad my quizlings, I would've gone right down that hole with you!!! I am loving how bright it is staying at night now, soon 6pm is going to start feeling super

Good job Oregon Sportsball Team… and other various teams as well!
Miss LaLa

I hear it’s March Madness which, surprisingly enough, has nothing to do with marching, madness or St. Patrick’s Day. All the sportsball teams in all the land are convening on all the other various cities across the land to play their sport. I guess it’s a big deal. I don’t really have any investment in it. The Sacramento City College sportsball team is in no danger of making national news, no offense but let’s be real. I did learn a brand new skill yesterday at New Helvetia last night though. I learned how to look at the sportsball while going through my questions so as not to try and speak over a half a dozen Oregon fans dressed

Daylight savings time has no effect on day drinking…
Miss LaLa

  It was a BEAUTIFUL day in Sacramento. Spring has arrived which means a number of things.   First - we can finally stop wearing knee high boots and giant puffy jackets. Seriously, bust out them flippy floppys and shave those legs because it’s time to wear shorts and skirts again. I mean, obviously you don’t have to wear shorts if you’re like me and hate your knees. It’s all on you.   Second - you’re probably not sick. It’s very likely just allergies. They’re gonna be super terrible though.

Sac Beer Week Is Coming!!!

Beer Week is coming!! That's right, Oscars be damned! I was not sure what kind of crowd we'd have going up against the Oscars, I was kind ofexpecting an empty house, but we still had 7 great teams!! You guys kicked ass! Speaking of the Oscars, I am glad that I'm not the only one who makes mistakes on stage. If Warren Beatty can do mess up, so can I!  He was in Bulworth, so he can do no wrong in my eyes, he was outstanding in it. Congrats to Folsom Parolees, they did a great job slipping in to that number one spot. Remember to check out www.sacbeerweek.com for all of the Beer Week Festivities starting

Sunday Fundays Right?!
The Deuce

I am proud that of everyone on this three day weekend there really was only one player that was too "hot" come the start ofthe quiz. Making Sunday evening plans on a three day weekend when in the midtown area is always pretty dangerous. All ittakes is on text from someone saying, "How's brunch sound?" or "Hows about a beer?" Next thing you know, you're walking out of the Merc with a flower in your hair and missing a shoe. I mean that's what I hearcan happen when you get steamrolled by a Sunday Funday. I was impressed by how well some of you did with the Swedish Chef Round. I thought it was going to be harder, but if you were a musical fan, the clues were actually

From the "I Feel So Old" File...
Miss LaLa

I remember when new Helvetia was a coffee shop. Then it was connected to a theater. Now it’s on Broadway and it brews hella good beer! I mean GOOD beer. I tried three of them and they were all outstanding. WHAT A COOL VENUE! I’m gonna have to figure out a way to take out Josh and take over on Sunday nights. I guess we’re pretty new to New Hel but not so new that we didn’t have returning teams.   Now admittedly the first few rounds were a little tougher than I usually see but you definitely held your own!

You guys are new, so I get it. The bonus round can be frustrating and daunting. You want to show off your skills and win that sweet sweet beer. That question comes and you cannot connect the dots. The quizmaster starts getting louder, you can see him ready to shame all of you for not knowing what he thinks is a slam dunk. This only makes you clam up even more!! I believe in tough love, only because I have been there. I have shamed my family, my friends, my dog, and everyone else I hold dear while trying to win the bonus round. Clamming up on what should be an obvious answer as my brain just starts farting to the tune of "Whacky Sax". It's embarassing, but you know what, I deserved

What A Great First Night!!
The Deuce

Well hello my quizlings!!! So how about that first night of Pub Quiz at New Helvetia? I don't know about you guys, but I had a blast. I'm going to be honest, as the rain started to come I got a splitting headache. The kind that could make just spelling your own name feel like the hardest task. These are the kinds of things that make it hard to come in to work and turn on the charm. I'll tell you what, as soon as I entered the taproom that feeling immediately disappeared, I mean yeah, that headache was going nowhere, but it quickly became an afterthought. Your energy and excitement for the quiz was amazing and it got me excited!! First nights are rough, not just for the quizmaster,
