A Sub At Rogue
MathewMiller

Hello Everyone! I got to sub for the regular patron saint of quiz at Rogue Brwehouse Issaquah  Ellie Court.  I am a huge fan of Rogue and all that they do, I showed up to the quizall decked out in my Rogue Nation gear ready to sample some of their fine libations! It was my first time hosting a quiz that does a video round and I stumbled on myself a bit and made it through.  Ellie left very specific instructions which was a major godsend!! Albeit in the chaos I failed to snap photos (I am ashamed...) We had the awesome Jessica taking care of all of us nerdy quiz goers and all things quiz related! Special

I Once Took The Most Important Quiz of my Life
Ellie

Tonight at Issaquah Brewhouse we had 4 teams. Ruminating Rouge Rouges who apparently think their name should be super easy to say despite being a homonym I pronounce backwards every time! Not-Sly was new to Geeks Who Drink tonight, and I’m so glad they chose our baller Eastside venue! I learned a new fact from them: apparently corgis are supposed to look “Like foxes, but not sly.” Shawn Tom was pretty passionate about my Beast Mode Seahawks Jersey! I swore to never believe he retired, and now he is coming out of retirement, but will not play for us; this is like the worst break up I’ve ever had! Also, new tonight

This Quiz Will Now Start At 6pm!!
Ellie

I’m getting word out every way I can, Issaquah Brewhouse quiz will now start at 6pm! We’ve got a good little crowd of regulars starting and they would like the toughest competition in all the Eastside to join us. On Monday’s. At 6pm. This weekend for me was madness. My sister got married on Saturday and while it was so so fun, it was also so so exhausting. It was such a good wedding, small and intimate. Also, the food was on point. It was carbs on carbs, with mac and cheese and a tater tot nacho inspired dish. I love carbs. My family, who all live in the United Kingdom came for the wedding so it was awesome to see everyone! Plus, my dress, hair and make-up was on

The More You Know (March 27th).
Ellie

I learned a few things today and also imparted some non-quiz knowledge to one of my teams. First, I learned that hooking your laptop up to a TV is super handy when you want to show people diagrams of cuts of meat, and where they come from on little piggy and cow bodies. Second, no matter how many times you listen to Harlem Shake it is still awesome. That might just be a fact for me though. Taylor Swift can be quoted by all different types of people. Me: I hate Emily Deschanel. Quizzer: Who is she? Me: The chick in Bones. Quizzer: Which one? Me: She’s literally Bones. **Astonishment** Aka, knowledge! I myself learned, there is a 3rd Manning

I'm a Technological Wizard!
Ellie

We’ve got video round at the Issaquah Brewhouse!! What? What? I feel so accomplished getting it all hooked up correctly. Two weeks ago I moved and it took me 3 hours to get a futon together, it was tedious and not remotely rewarding. I also tried to install my own cable, and failed miserably. I wound up having the cable man come and do it for me; turns out my little cable outlet in the wall wasn’t actually attached to anything. Basically the cable man had to wire my apartment. So, tonight getting us some video rounds was my shining moment! Also, the sun was shining this weekend! I don’t know if you know this, but I love the sunshine. My family moved to the US-of-A

Sometimes You Just Can't Shake That Feeling
Ellie

You know what is super annoying? Being certain you recognize someone from somewhere, but having no recollection where. I swore I recognized one of the quizzers tonight, and I actually thought she was a client at my full-time job. I even text one of my co-workers to tell her I thought on of our clients was at the quiz. Her response was to tell me to hide. Yes, that is usually what I would do when I see someone out in public. You know hide behind the veggies in the grocery store, move your whole group down the bar a bit, leave; but that’s not possible when you’re the one who is supposed to be hosting the shindig. So when I was walking around, chatting with the teams, snapping some

Feeling Mushy Gushy!
Ellie

I am feeling so mushy and gushy after my fabulous weekend at Geek Bowl and moving into my first apartment all on my own. I felt like rocking out all night tonight and kind of wished it was part quiz, part karaoke. We had five teams hanging out tonight and all it did was make me wish the stupid snow had not stopped me from getting there last week. I’m loving Issaquah Brewhouse, and they have delicious beers, like really delicious! This weekend was huuuuuge. We had Geek Bowl in Seattle with 212 teams, and Quiz Masters, from around the country. You guys, meeting other QMs is so cool. We have like super-secret private Facebook groups that only

Inaugural Quiz and Beer Garage Sale
Ellie

Welcome to the Geeks Who Drink world! Tonight was the inaugural quiz for Issaquah Brewhouse, and we had a great time! Our teams tonight were #Lexapro, Beer is Food, Axel Rogue, O’Trivia Newton John, and Relentless. A lot of the teams tonight were new to Geeks Who Drink and definitely got a good idea of how no two rounds are alike! Issaquah Brewhouse is also a pretty sweet spot! They were having a garage sale this weekend and were selling many of their beers by the caseload. Lots of people were coming in for the garage sale and taking their purchases out on hand carts; these are my kind of people! I myself am a semi-Issaquah kid! I grew up
