That's DR. MEGAN to you
Amy

First off, a big welcome and congratulations to Megan, who brought a party of thirty people to the venue to celebrate successfully defending her dissertation. They didn't know they were coming to trivia night, but they gamely played along and did quite well. We also had our youngest ever player, seven-week-old Noli. Our venue really liked the cleverness of Round 1 and three of our teams aced it: Team Half-Glass Heathers, Team Many Zebra Fish Died to Bring You This Team Name

2 QM's entered, both drank, both left
Justin

What up Drinking Geeks?!? Its ya boy Justin here, first time Quiz Master, long time drinker.  It was such an awesome night to get my feet wet leading the Quiz! Shout out to the best trainer a geek could ask for, the wonderful Amy Watts. Amy is still your go to number 1 QM but on the rare occasion she is sick, our decides to run off to Mexico for a bender, you’ll get me.  We started off the night strong with an entire round that was not based on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off* (* every question was related in some way or another). It started easy with asking about which baseball stadium was finally home to the World Champs, which we all know

Bjorn Bjork Wins the Grand Slam in a Swan Dress
Amy

Two strong scores out of the gate in Round 2 for The Undead Kennedys and Idina Hooey both scoring 13 out of 16 and jokering the round. Our gassiest team in Round 3 was The Undead Kennedys who aced the round. None of the teams, though, put krypton as an answer, probably because, like narwhals, it seems like a made-up thing. Our crowd in a very Southern state all laughed at Robin Williams' joke in Round 4 but none of them could identify him as the author. Round 6, as usual, proved a difficult one for our teams, but gave

Georgia Represent
Amy

This week we had several members of the Athens Young Professionals Network classing up the joint at Trappeze/Highwire. Welcome, Young Professionals! As the first round unfolded, and I realized we're the only venue in Georgia on Monday nights, so we had to hold it up for the whole state on Question 6. Luckily most of our teams knew at least one, if not both of the answers. (See, candidates - TV spending works!) However, only regular team Hot Girls Club Sandwich was the only team to ace the first round.  Round 2 was a good round for most times, however one team got

Love May Be Blooming - We Didn't Ask If They Had Orange Blossoms
Amy

Fun crowd at Highwire/Trappeze Monday night as a too-large team, forced to split into two teams (General Knowledge and Pokemasters), lobbed trash talk at one another across the bar the rest of the night. We also had a team that was a couple on their first date (hope it went well!) and two of our returning teams, Happy Fun Ball (known last week as The A-Team) and the with-us-since-week-one Hot Girls Club Sandwich. Missing were regulars Ask

Yes, Bing, Yes, You Are
Amy

It was great to see so many familiar faces on only our third week of Geeks Who Drink at Trappeze/Highwire. The Crazy Kennedys, Ask Me Another, and Hot Girls Club Sandwich were all back as were Ladies and the Champs, now known as Plan B Is Always Plan A. After a round one that would've pleased the Cat in the Hat, Round 2 proved challenging for a lot of our teams. My late great cat Otis Redding would've been able to answer Question 1, but neither he nor I nor any of our teams knew Ednaswap. We also raised a toast to Billy Bass on Question 4. Round 3, Question 5 gave

No Shoes, No Shirt, It's IGGY POP
Amy

We had four teams this week at Trappeze, only one of which was a repeat from our inaugural week last week. New to the quiz were Ask Me Another, a team spearheaded by Sarah, who's from Denver and is delighted that Geeks Who Drink has found its way to Athens. In the back of the room, we had a super group of two former teams "Hot Girls Club" and "Club Sandwich" who now play together as Hot Girls Club Sandwich. Nobody said you can't have cannibalism in your team name. Our third new team was Ladys & the Champs

Teddy Bears Get Up to Some Weird Sh*t, Man
Amy

We had four teams at our inaugural Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Trappeze Monday night: Team Actrivia, Team Bed Heads, Team Kevin Wants Free Beer*, and Team Sky Mall Kitties. Just a heads up for anybody looking for the quiz next week, we're actually on the Highwire side of the establishment, since that's where the stage is set up. You can order all of Trappeze's food and drink, though, so come on over. If you win one of the bonus rounds, the
