Cozy Corners & Crazy Crooning
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Hail and well met! My usual perch was not available due to rain, so I set up in a booth instead. Either I'm short or that bench seat is. I felt like I was using the big kids' table the whole night. By far the most interesting round was our karaoke section. Phew! By the answer round I was feeling sorry I had to make y'all listen to that more than once. Even though those folks were absolutely caterwauling their way through those tunes, Shut Up, Nerds! managed to pull out a perfect (and jokered) round. In fact, they garnered perfect scores on both the audio rounds. Well done, folks. Hope to see you next week! And drag a friend or two along. Tell your

I've Had a REVELATION
Metta World Pizza

Hey everyone.   Thanks for letting me stop by Atlas Pub.   You're a small, but rowdy and fun bunch.   Danielle will be back next week.   But it was cool to hang out with you.   I hope you enjoyed yourselves.   Even if you don't know that pluralizing certain things makes the answer wrong.   Or if you're way too into RuPaul.   Or if you think 1 is a prime number.   It's all good.   Congrats to Kumquats for bringing home the proverbial bacon.   And to No Fox Gibbon

I read great. Town in City Brewing Company Wednesday at 7:30 and Sundays at 6, nerds. Be there.

Spring has sprung, the grass is riz...
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Ahoy hoy! A new month is upon us, and that brings new challenges, new adventures, new discoveries—and new quiz questions. Springtime is upon us, but we’re in Texas so “spring” means 85 degree days and winter never actually showed up. Jerk. So, quiz last night! We found out the collective psyche really wants there to be an Air Bud hockey movie (hey, Disney, you listening?), Phileas Fogg went around the world and that means ending up in the same place, and Indianapolis is a very famous Southern capital of culture, if the NFL is to be believed. Not only are we entertaining, our quizzes are educational too! Attorneys at Lager absolutely

Yes, Those Shots Were Strong
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Good eeeeeevening. QM Danielle here. We had a small but quality group out last night that allowed me to actually get to know some of my regulars! It was like having a really fun group of friends over for a game night. So thank you all for being awesome. We also had a special guest in Angela’s pup! (See photos.) Down a few members, Banana? put up a valiant effort but in the end it was Lesbian Boba Fett that did the thing. Aw yiss. Selected talking points: - Rock Me Amadeus and Roll Over Beethoven are not the same song. This round was rough in general. - Donnie Wahlberg is still chasing that paper with NKOTB.

Dressage: The Newest Euphemism for Doin' It
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Last night was goooood. Lesbian Boba Fett was back in the house for another round of wondering what exactly is under that helmet. We had usual super-team A Healthy Swallow forced to split up into two teams because of some guests, hence the team name It's All Kyle's Fault. THANKS, KYLE!

I Did The Dance
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

The population in this Atlas was off the charts! We had a record high number of teams for our young venture and I was really pleased to see all of you out. Suggested Talking Points from last night: - There are a complete dearth of children writing essays about Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events. Forget that frozen precipitation man. - Ken Burns’ The Civil War featured Iron Man and boy was he mad at him. - Only one of you needs blood thinning medication (or watches daytime TV). - “General Black Jack Pershing invented the side straddle hop” isn’t nearly as catchy as the “jumping jack”. -

Does Ayn Rand Own This Pub? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Another Monday in the books and made significantly better by the addition of quiz! Suggested talking points: - The Table That Hated Electroswing- The Table That Loved Electroswing- Detroit has over $151 million for their baseball payroll, but a rapidly crumbling infrastructure! Hooray capitalism!- Dave Matthews Band seems to have some unresolved feelings about the Vietnam War.- "Canadian Ursa Major" was not, in fact, the name of a famous fictional detective.- "House Majority Whip" is, in fact, the weirdest job title ever. Both Lesbian Boba Fett and Does Ayn Rand Own This Bar? were valiant

Geek Bowl Warm-Up Stretches
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Just a note to say how great Monday’s quiz was! Atlas Pub Quiz #2 was loud n rowdy and a fellow alum of that TV game show that I was once on showed up! She was the first person I’d met outside of my auditions or taping group, so that was pretty sweet. Everyone had a good time, but the best time was likely had by our top two teams, who absolutely owned the quiz from the start. A Healthy Swallow was in the lead for most of the quiz until our second place team tied it up in the last round. Oh, but the bitter sting of defeat came in the final sudden death challenge—and it was Will’s On Crack who ultimately prevailed. I hope

You Can Find Us in an Atlas (Pub)
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Hello all! I'm your friendly neighborhood quizmaster Danielle, here as the permanent host of Atlas Pub's Geeks Who Drink nights. I've been an itinerant sub until now, and I'm happy to have found a home--literally. My little nook is like a tiny living room. You can now come cheer (or jeer) me any given Monday from now until the end of linear time. What can you expect from me as your host? If tonight is any indication, fun knowledge of World War I pandemics, English-language operettas of all shapes and sizes, and constant references to old Simpsons episodes. And hey, did you know I was on Jeopardy! last year? I was on Jeopardy! last year. BUT ANYWAY what a fun first
