Why Don't You Just Tell Me The Answers?
Darren

"It's not an easy climb to the top" said once by a very underrated mountain climber. I believe this same teaching can be applied when attending the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz.  This Monday was not the easiest when attempting to attend a quiz. The roads where slick and the rain was pouring, but the drinks were flowing at Wise Man Brewery. I want to thank all 20 teams that made it out tonight.  It was fitting that team "The Complete Disaster" came in last place. And with a five point lead, "Darth Plagueis the Wise man" took most of the cake home. in Second place, "I, Richard Morningstar, Reluctant War Chief of the Hyena Woman" grabbed the rest of the cake and a few extra

Rock, Paper, USA!
Darren

What do 50's Jukebox tunes, Today's Hits, and Old School hip hop have in common? They were all played at tonight's quiz. Oh yeah, we partied it up, be jealous. Something any quizmaster would be jealous about: extra help. That's right, a full team of three GWD officials ran this quiz like a well oiled quizzing machine. Our ever so awesome scorekeeper, Sean Gannon, aided in helping me train the one and only Marisa Bishop.  Marisa is jumping in to the deep end with the rest of the quizmasters this Thursday for her first solo quiz. Whoop Whoop! We wish you luck girl, hope the three hours spent on how to fold a perfect origami flute truly pay off. Really though she was

Coming down from the high of having River Run International film festival right here in the heart of Winston-Salem, we welcome yet another stain-glass Monday with a good 'ol pub quiz. Fun team names for tonight: Spiny Ice Pits of the Sloth Empress came in first. Alternative facts coming in second with only four points away from a first place tie. Flr Pwr put in a great effort tonight. You go Flr Prw My Dixie Wrecked. So sorry to hear about your Dixie. How bad was the wreck? Will the Dixie be OK? So many questions. United Airlines Fight Club. So from what I know about this is that there was a sweet man who, being a doctor, had to get home to his

Who Brings Fried Chicken To A Birthday Party?
Darren

Alright, I get it, you've had a long day anticipating the big basketball game. You head on over to the coolest place to be on a Monday night and ask what their latest beer on tap is. The bartender says, "There's a new stout we just released today. It made with Black Mountain chocolate and Krankies coffee, both locally sourced here in Winston-Salem."  You think to yourself, "I've gotta try it; heck it may be your good luck beer for the big game."  It's no surprise that there are plenty other people in the crowd, but you soon notice that they're not their for basketball, they're there to quiz. It doesn't take long for the nasally voice booming

What's That F-Word?
Darren

Tonight's quiz was a brilliant variety of questions and answers. We all were taken back to when the Harlem Shake was a thing, were reminded of how ancient the swastika is, that meat cut that starts with an F is Flank, and guessed movies from audio clips like one from Three Kings. Three Kings, Y'all, is a great movie. It's got a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. With George Clooney, Mark Walburg and Ice Cube, David O. Russell couldn't go wrong with this flick.  So. Many. Puppies. There were a lot of great dogs that graced us with their puppy presence. One in particular, Riley, was most adorable when playfully battling Team Stella's Mascot, Stella. Team Stella had a commanding

Yep, That's Lube
Darren

If you live in Winston-Salem and have yet to visit Wiseman Brewery on a Monday night for Geeks Who Drink, then you are missing out on an awesome way to brain-slap your weeknights. 25 teams quizzed all over Wiseman as we answered questions about Igor Stravinsky, tragic sex stories involving popes, and whether or not Wet Platinum is a personal lubricant. You guessed it, it's lube. Wiseman just finished brewing a fresh batch of there very own gose beer, which is the best I have had since I can remember, and happens to be a refreshing kick start to spring. Tonight had two of my favorite rounds of all time, so far: Round 3 listed a year of a film's

Anarchy Burger, Hold the Government
Sean

Monday was an excellent night of quizzardry.  It was excellent despite the serious lack of fans of the classic xXx series, you'll never be able to infiltrate the Xtreme terrorist group Anarchy 99 without a knowledge of 1980s joke punk.  Even my softball bonus question about the wildly successful and memorable xXx 2: State of the Union didn't go over well, leaving me awkwardly standing in the corner. Speaking of reliving my college years, we had 2 teams with an avowed love of risky sexin': MY couch

TV Detectives.  Baseball.  Landlocked Countries.  Massive Crowds.   Monday was real fun.  (even with baseball, a sport that exists solely to create minutiae for the bar quizlords) If nothing else things are always good when I can give away extra free beer, so congrats to Panda Party for being both skilled and lucky enough to win the Greensboro St. Patricks Day Bar Crawl trip.  Solid.  Feel free to bring me along, I like to drink beer and I promise to only ask random knowledge questions when appropriate. Also congratulations to the tall-bearded-guy-whose-name-I-never-got for earning a beer in the bonus "I like to entertain

And The Winner Is...
Darren

What a night it was at Wise Man Brewery in Downtown Winston-Salem. We were one shy of twenty teams tonight, which is excellent for tonight being Wise Man's second week of Geeks Who Drink pub quiz. There were many excellent moments for tonight. Wise Man had just released a freshly brewed brown aie that tasted of delight and sophistication. The smooth brew had a very faint brown sugar taste which gave it almost a dessert feel. Alright, get out of here ya beer weirdo, it was a damn fine beer OK. Wise Man made a wise choice by inviting Taqueria Lucianos, an authentic taco/quesadilla/burrito food truck, to bless us with their incredible food. I mean wow, these tacos were

I Wanna Quiz On Monday Nights And Party Every Day
Darren

It was a rockin' first quiz night out a Wiseman Brewery in Winston-Salem, NC. Thank you Geeks Who Drink for providing all the necessary items for a "no problem" audio hook=up and enough score sheets to keep us busy. We had a whopping twenty two teams and almost everyone at the venue was apart of the quiz. Wiseman currently about twelve diverse brews on tap. Five of which are their own brews made right at Wiseman. Wiseman also did an awesome job in preparation to the quiz by including their very one official 1st place and 2nd place certificates for the winners. Hats off to you guys for thinking ahead. Chad's Juice, a three-man team, carried a commanding
