Marmaduke Had Hip Dysplasia And Had To Be Put Down
Silent G

Sorry to break that bad news to you in my very first Prohibition blog. He was in a ton of pain when he went, too. Not to mention the fact that – since he was such a big dog – the vet flubbed up the lethal dosage, thus causing poor Marmaduke to convulse to death violently instead of drift of to sleep peacefully. It was really pretty awful. Anyway, Marmaduke's fucking dead and he suffered a bunch before it happened. (And, yes, cartoons can indeed suffer. See: proto-true crime documentary Who Framed Roger Rabbit for proof.)

Moving back to 8 p.m. start time!
A-Fed

Hey all, this was my last quiz at Prohibition. New QM, new start time starting April 24 (8 p.m.) For the sake of anyone reading this, I decided to not type it up immediately after the conclusion of the quiz. If you were there, you know why. Yes indeed, this was my final quiz as the regular Quizmaster at Prohibition. My first foray into hosting took place almost three years ago here- July 2014. I have outlasted every staff member not named Alex there. I have seen regulars come and go, with a precious few hanging on for the majority of my run. Many things in life have changed for me over the last year, and this is one I will not soon forget. What a night

When I'm not reading or partaking in Geeks Who Drink quizzes, you can find me at concerts, on stages performing stand-up comedy (including comedy raps), hiding from the city in the mountains, or at King Soopers when I run out of food and don't have enough money to go to Whole Foods.

I love music a whole lot. My playlists will go all over the place and usually stay away from songs you would hear on any radio station.

Any given Monday at Prohibition or Wednesday at Comrade Brewing Co., you can expect to hear Talking Heads, Beck, Spoon, Atmosphere, Jay-Z, Buddy Holly, Louis Armstrong, Alkaline Trio, Ween, Built to Spill, Gramatik, The Avett Brothers, The Kinks, Neko Case, and many more.

The Final Countdown
A-Fed

Next Monday will be my last regular night as Quizmaster at Prohibition. Tune in next week to read my nostalgia ridden au revoir to the place that I have called home on Monday nights since July 2014. Also, the quiz at Prohibition will switch back to 8 p.m. start time (again) starting April 24. Next Monday (the 17th) will still start at 7. Quizzes can really help to highlight some phenomenal absurdities that we routinely overlook in life. For example, the first and last lyrics to the song “White Christmas” are ‘I’m’ and ‘white’. Teams chalked up two points in round 3 if they wrote the phrase “I’m

Air Bud: Goaltend Retriever
A-Fed

The final question of this week’s quiz forced quizzers to tap into the knowledge that really matters: what sports has Air Bud played on film? Thanks to Ben, one of our quizzers, for knowing the four titles off the top of his head- Air Bud: Golden Receiver, Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, Air Bud: World Pup, and Air Bud Spikes Back. Many teams guessed hockey- c’mon! Could you really imagine a dog playing a game on ice? They would be slipping all over the place! Plus, there is no way they would keep ice skates on. Have you ever tried putting boots on a dog before, let alone ones with blades? We had another round that touched on climate change. In case you are into taking action

I met a less famous sibling- here’s the story
A-Fed

This week’s quiz at Prohibition featured a round on less-famous siblings. As an homage, I give you the story of the time I met and hung out with Danny Duchovny (aka David’s older brother). I went on a spring break trip with a couple of my coworkers in southern California. We dubbed it ‘man-cation’ and we vowed to do as many things as possible that we had never done before. We went skydiving, paintballing, attended a beer festival, and much more. Little did we know that this trip would also include hanging out with Danny Duchovny in Malibu. Through multiple degrees of separation (my friend’s dad’s best friend who is also named

Up, it’s time to sleigh. Cold runway!
A-Fed

As a Quizmaster that hosts at two venues, I am privy to seeing all types of round themes. I have to say, the famous quotes from movies that were run through Google translator may be my new favorite type of round. It really helps you appreciate just how difficult the English language can be. Even the internet don’t do it so good. Always are words in those skewed quotes that help, but it takes some real mental creativity to translate the translated English into the English that was originally spoken in the movie. I would like to refer to this paragraph as “The only thing that makes an English major more madder than choosing English as their major.”  In addition

Easily The Best Band of the '90s Named Smash Mouth
Micah

They were! It's empirically true. A fine time was had with our cozy crowd and a stupendous servers at Prohibition this week! It was my seventh time on the mic, subbing for the amazing Adam, and boy, if each time isn't more magical than the last.   We discussed things with comic book superhero names, bad movie reviews, movies with men raising children, famous sopranos, and random knowledge! In the end, Four Men and a Little Lady won it all! Huzzah!   Thanks for coming out for another week of Geeks Who Drink pub quiz, and see ya

This blog is not about flamingos
A-Fed

Tonight’s quiz was no easy task. It was like trying to tie shoes on a flamingo. Have you ever tried? I feel like it would be super tough... After round 2, no team aced a round. Much like a shoeless flamingo, the night was all over the place and bending knees backwards like there was no tomorrow. From baseball to TV detectives, foreign presidents to the Revolutionary War, it was the kind of night that required your team to have a bottomless well of knowledge. Tonight, the well was deepest for Triple B (and Lorenzo). If you were thinking about how money is tight lately, you likely hated round 3, where we had teams name the top 10 payrolls in Major League Baseball.

Bork Bork, Bang Bang… Same Same
A-Fed

Swedish Chef straight up crushed it tonight at Prohibition. The laughter in the bar during that round was the amount I hope to achieve when I am actively trying to make people laugh as a stand-up comic. It is so much easier to riff and coax laughter during a round when quizzers are already laughing at the content of the round. I am not saying every round should be this funny- how could we possibly handle laughing for two hours during a regular quiz? That said, I certainly appreciate them when they come along and I think there was a definite consensus on that humor at the bar tonight. Inspired by round 4 this week, here are three quick things you should know about Malaysia

Age is Irrelevant in Hollywood
A-Fed

Our visual round this week showcased Ellen Page, who is somehow 30 years old. Ellen is now the same age as me. I know, you were thinking, “Adam, have you been in high school for the last 15 years? You sure look like it!” Despite my youthful looks, I have not been able to easily pass as a high school student since I was 17. Once I had in those sideburns and receding hairline senior year, it became clear that I was not destined to play a perennial high school student in Hollywood. If that would have happened, I probably would not be the well-adjusted Quizmaster that you all love/ tolerate today. The song “Fancy” by she who shall not be named is not one I will

Who Doesn’t Enjoy a Nice Soak?

We had a round this week all about soaking it in, which led me to think about all of the different meanings of soaking. We have soaking wet, the soaker spray on the garden hose that just dumps it out the nozzle, soaking up liquid with a sponge, absorbing information/ experiences, and the classic sex position that fine upstanding religious folk use to keep their genitalia pure (search the article 10 Sexy Tips to Make Your Mormon Member Feel Alive Again for the First Time).

Turns out Q and J are the only two letters that don't appear on the periodic table. No love! (W is on there!) Another fun time during my sixth time subbing for QM Adam at Prohibition for our weekly Geeks Who Drink pub quiz! We discussed reasons to war with Australia, we listened ot awful covers, we named actors based on roles they've played (or, uh, tried to...), we talked about stolen things and things that are shaken, we identified animated characters, we had a hard-ass science round, we listened to TV shows with a cappella moments, and we battled our way through random knowledge.   In the end, Go

Quiz alla Puttanesca
A-Fed

is a significant percentage of people that speak English as their first language and they are still terrible at it. This is why I so greatly appreciate when we just decide to keep phrases or names from another language. You never look at a burrito the same when you think of it as a little donkey, and I have never before so badly wanted to eat spaghetti alla puttanesca, or “spaghetti in the style of a prostitute”. What a great way to eat food? How does a prostitute eat? Oh, the places your dining experiences will go… We learned that if you are looking to start listening to Latin music but don’t know where to start, you can check out “Now Esto Es Musica!”

Shake it fast, but please do watch yourself
A-Fed

Any song using a sample from a James Brown song has the motive to get you moving. Whether that means you are pushing it real good, knocking someone out because mama said to do it, or going insane in the brain, you are making moves to the tune of shakin’ grooves. It sure is amazing how a song can invoke feelings in your bones so readily. While we did learn that Bruno Mars did not sample James Brown in that one particular song, it should be noted that he totally sampled other people in that song. He could get away with sampling any song in the world, though. Dude has been straight crushing it over the last decade. He is one year older than me though, which means I always have one more

Who Makes New Year’s Resolutions?

Odds are we have all done it. We get to the end of a year, look back on our accomplishments, focus more on our shortcomings, and vow to turn it all around in the new year. Whether it is a diet, exercise routine, reading more, drinking less, or finally figuring out the correct way that adults tie their shoes, they are all ways we set ourselves up for failure. Seriously, who wants to commit to anything in January? The weather is unpredictable, your goals are not feasible given your life schedule, and who wants to read anyway? Oh, you do?

Maybe it’s just me, but did you notice during this Monday quiz “Gee, this quiz would be practically nonexistent if we removed people’s names from all questions and/ or answers”? From the second question asking about Mickey Mouse and Dippy Dawg (yes, I’m also counting them because humans personify them) to the second round featuring Dave Matthews covers to the Round 3 that was just lists of actors found in the same TV show, the quiz was littered with human names the same way the streets of Chicago are littered with human waste… err, waste produced by humans… people trash!
