I Never Want to Hear "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" Ever Again
Eugene

Every week the competition is stiff at Walter’s, but tonight we had an absolute barnburner on our hands. After several teams destroyed the first half of the night’s questions, nearly everyone fell apart when we hit Round 6: a round on guardians and the Milky Way galaxy. Then, to tack onto the mental drubbing, we all endured a physical beating by listening to eight celebrities mutilate “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” When the shellacking was over, three of our beloved regulars were tied for first place: Mueller? Muller? Anyone, I Think I Love My Wife and What’s a Petworth @ Walters?.

Really, F*ck All Oceans
Eugene

It was a packed house at Walter’s tonight with a lot of new faces coming out for the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz. Everyone quickly settled in, however, and soon enough we were all rocking out to some Bork to Bork hits. Teams tested their knowledge of commercial flops, the Supreme Court and the number one, as well as tackled a whole category on the man known as Sean Bean. We also had some creative team names in the building, like Linkedin.com/james_comey and Spicer? Hardly Know Her.  And everyone played a competitive game, including G-Dub, even though they missed an entire round. As for tonight’s

Healthcare, Schmealthcare
Eugene

Following a controversial House vote about a certain, hot ticket item earlier in the day, quiz-takers gathered at Walter’s to take their minds off American politics and instead expend that mental energy on other pressing matters like on-screen actor deaths and words that begin with “sp.” I got the feeling that one team in particular—Repeal and Go F*ck Yourself—was especially miffed at the day’s happenings, and, in turn, they channeled that energy into pub quiz artistry. Two-time champs Ebony & Ivory, as well as I’m Not Sure What She’s Doing, put up a heck of a fight,

Penguins Aren't Intimidating Creatures
Eugene

The hockey fans were out in droves tonight, and our quiz-takers settled their competing sports rivalries the only way they knew how: by answering questions about bowling and sewing. Seriously, though, if you’re playing Geeks Who Drink in Washington D.C. and you name your team Go Penguins, you’re asking for trouble. Still, game respects game, and I’ll be the first to admit that tonight’s rabble-rousers had the skill to back up their trash talking. Holding down the lead for the majority of the game, it looked like the away team was going to walk out the night’s winner. But after digging deep, the hometown heroes, What’s

The Joys of Staying Up Late
Eugene

As a quizmaster, you often get to witness true pub quiz-mastery. Sometimes a team is on fire, exuding knowledge left and right, while carving out a booming, victorious chasm between themselves and the competition. Really, it’s quite the sight. And the dynamic duo known as 9PM Bedtime seemed like they could potentially accomplish such a feat at Walter’s this week. They cruised through questions about Fictional AMAs and Sex Ed, as well as demonstrated their vast comprehension of the differences between Cleveland and Mongolia. After five rounds, it seemed like they were a shoe-in for the night’s top prize. But then the clock

Patio, Daddy-O
Eugene

Capitalizing on the gorgeous weather, Geeks Who Drink took to Walter’s patio this week, giving our lovely quiz-takers some fresh air along with the evening’s quiz. And, oh my, what a quiz it was. From trash to Sesame Street TV parodies, the group wrapped their brains around some tough categories. We had some familiar faces in the house, including What’s @ Petworth at Walter’s? and Clever Trivia Name (who, although was severely depleted, was still able to pull out Yggsdrasil). We also were joined by plenty of newcomers. One fresh team held it down for most the game—The Globalist

Fake Eddie Vedder Singing Creed is Essentially Creed
Eugene

It was another fun week at Walter’s, and the competition was as fierce as always. Teams wrestled with some tricky categories, including Gothic literature and Hot Topic, actors suffering for their craft, and songs sung by a fake Eddie Vedder. Two teams in particular duked it out for the top spot: Clever Trivia Name and the returning champs, What’s a Petworth @ Walter’s? Clever Trivia Name ended up taking first prize, but it was an impressive showing by all teams, including El Duderino and Just Me and My Left Hand. However, if you ask Those 3 Banana Hammocks, they’re

Dawn of a New Day… Err, Night?
Eugene

It was a time for new beginnings, as Walter’s Sports Bar hosted their first Geeks Who Drink pub quiz. And, boy, was it a doozey. The teams enjoyed a plethora of a mash-ups, including a whole audio round devoted to songs mashed with Smash Mouth’s “All Star” and another round about human-animal splices. On top of that, teams flaunted their geography knowledge—specifically focused on the Four Corners states—and they put their understanding of the female anatomy to the test (on paper... Get your mind out of the gutter). What’s a Petworth at Walter’s? spent the evening jockeying for the top spot against Almost
