Tracy Mosby Deserved Better
Coco

I finally convinced my beau to watch How I Met Your Mother with me - my third viewing - and over the course of nine seasons, we laughed, we cried, we made fun of all of Ted Mosby's sentimental schlock, and we fell in love with the five key characters. I tried to keep the identity of the titular mother to myself. While I always opt for spoilers, preferring to know ahead of time if I'm going to loathe a novel, film or TV show, M is a staunch spoiler avoider. On Sundays during Game of Thrones season, he abstains from the Internet entirely. He prefers to watch things as intended, and thus Sunday night, when we finally watched the finale, he was stunned.  "How,"

Coco is a writer in Raleigh. She's always on the lookout for the opportunity to discuss the utter weirdness of being an American adolescent, mostly because that gives her a chance to talk about Miley under the guise of academic pursuits. She likes appropriate musical handclaps and has a pretty no-nonsense policy against geographically named bands.

Stravinsky the EDM Dabbler
Coco

Wilson, pals. I have got to stop underestimating you. Just because a round on Stravinsky makes me go Guuuuuuuh and get all guppy-mouthed doesn't mean y'all won't ace it. As Daniel would say, some of you are self-proclaimed "orchestra nerds" or comic book nerds or nerd nerds, and you're really good at all sorts of things! You guys, I believe in you.  Despite their best efforts - and a few rounds that nearly snarled their triumph - Crazy Random Happenstance still emerged victorious, with Not Scott's Futon and The Mus-Get-Beers hot on their heels. There

Aquaman will save us - and humanity!
Coco

Brewmasters, y'all know how to party!  I'm the first to admit that a rainy 40-mile drive on a chilly Monday evening isn't my idea of cool fun times, but all my traffic-related frustrations went out the window the second we started quiz. I like the way Wilson quizzers do things; y'all don't just partake passively. You go all in, all the time, and it's a lifestyle that I can get behind. We had a whopping 17 teams turn out last night, and with such a wide array of questions, last night was a nail biter 'til the end. The highlight of my night was R3, "Your Mom is a Cinematic Travesty." I love using my best Sarcastic Sally voice, and this one was ripe with opportunities

Good Will Dinosaur Hunting
Coco

In the latest adventures of Coco vs. the rogue mic... Brewmasters, we're establishing a solid rapport, and it means something fun has found its way to Wilson! Clearly, y'all agree - you keep coming back for more! Is it the excellent beer selection? The challenging (and sometimes irreverent) questions? The Boar's Head? Li'l old me? Well, whatever it is, let's keep this momentum going. I'm having a blast. Last night's quiz featured such gem rounds as Get Off My Case!, a round of questions where all the answers were homophones for the surname of a fictional detective; Like Steak at a Vegan Buffet, a one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other headscratcher; and #NotMyPresident,

Dave Matthews Banned
Coco

Week two, no jeers! Hey Brewmasters, we're getting into the swing of things here. And the camaraderie is so admirable. Case in point? When I (mostly unwittingly) pick on one of your own, you're quick to stand up for him. Kudos, Wilsontonians! Dave Matthews, I'm sorry. I will apologize for underestimating your artistic abilities. I won't apologize for giving you crap about your unabashed love for Taylor Swift. You may not be embarrassed, but I am, if only by proximity. Alright, so last night's quiz was a good one, particularly the wonderment that was R2, "Bork to Bork." Let's get this straight - everyone loves this sort of audio round. "Slooooow Jams" from a few weeks back was

Yakety Sax...
Coco

...is still more annoying than "Surfin' Bird." Last night, we welcomed Brewmasters in Wilson, NC, to the Geeks Who Drink family! This was an exciting night, not only because we started a new venue, but also because this was our first quiz in Wilson, outside of civilization about 40 miles outside of Raleigh proper. I'm still new-ish to North Carolina, so this was my very first venture into this part of the state. There's more to learn about this quaint, boisterous, Star Wars-loving town (more on that later), but I do know one particularly fun thing - Wilson is home to my good pal, the Vulcan-grip possessing former governor
