Here’s to Three More Years!
JenKiper

Last night we marked an auspicious event for me. 3 years as Quizmaster at Green Room Burgers and Beer and I couldn’t be more thrilled. There was cake and party hats and lots of great quizzers. They even gave me a card which was very sweet. In return, we rocked out a great little quiz and drank some tasty beers with our chocolate cake to mark the occasion. Let’s do it again same time next year! Our second audio round of the night had us all wishing everything would slow down a little bit. We took some of your favorite television theme songs and took them down to slow jam level. I never knew some of those upbeat, poppy theme songs could turn into to dark,

Star Wars Tatoopalooza
JenKiper

Sometimes you have a new team that is very excited about quiz. They may not finish in the prizes, but they worked really hard and they’re still excited to come back and do it all again. That’s when you realize that you have an extra pack of Star Wars temp tattoos and that this team should be their new home. Sure enough, they couldn’t contain their enthusiasm. They stuck all 75 tattoos on some part of each others bodies before leaving for the night. Enjoy a few photos of their tattooed glory! I think we’d all agree that there are always a few movies that we would give awful reviews. Tonight we got to revel in a few of those bad reviews from folks who took to

Hail, Hail, The Power Didn’t Go Out
JenKiper

Last night, spring skipped the whole lamb part of that old saying and went straight to full scale hail storm. Just before quiz started, we all became junior meteorolgists and ran to the door to watch the hail rain down. Or maybe everyone was dreading all those ice pellets hitting their cars and the possible damage. Also lots of hail puns in the team names brought some joy to this cranky quizmaster's cold, cold heart. No matter their motivation, we made it through with a few iffy moments of flickering lights, but the power didn’t go out and we had a great quiz. All during quiz, I was having karaoke flashbacks from my friend’s birthday party last weekend. We had a great

Best Little Quiz House Around
JenKiper

It’s only a few weeks until my third quizaversary and I’m still pretty smitten with this place and the great teams that show up each week. Last week, we were the number 3 venue in the nation AND one of our teams won Team Name of the Week so they get a gift certificate AND a meme on the national FB page. Plus ya’ll are pretty darn nice and funny, too. One team even decided to have each team member draw their team each week so the first installment is included in this week’s pics. I’m pretty happy to show up and share this fun quiz time with ya’ll. After all the carnage in Sweden last week, it was wonderful to hear the Swedish chef singing away his

Ok, I’m a Music Snob
JenKiper

I’ve never really identified with the High Fidelity crowd. You know, that one friend who tells you what he learned from the liner notes of the classic album that he picked up at the local record store. I really do love music and probably go to a couple of shows a week, but I’m not that person, am I? Maybe I am, but I used to read the liner notes to my dad’s albums and later my own. And now I like a wide variety of music, but you have to draw the line somewhere. Last night, I found out where. There are a few artists that have negative physical effects on me. Florence and the Machine make me nauseous both in recording and in person (I did test that one). The Foo Fighers

Classic Films Featuring Water Fowl
JenKiper

After everyone recovered from their Super Bowl hangovers, lots of quizzers resurfaced to indulge in our little weekly quiz at Green Room Burgers and Beer. There was a full house of veterans and new folks ready to find out what they know and learn some new stuff. Let’s see how that all worked out. Tonight’s quiz featured rounds about a couple of classic films and I really feel like Howard the Duck is a classic film. I, mean, so is Schindler’s List, but it’s a little heavy for good reason. We had a round with facts about both movies and teams had to tell me which film matched up with each one. I knew Howard the Duck was huge box office failure

Bad Case of the Mondays
JenKiper

With all of the political tumult and six more weeks of winter, I was having a serious case of the Mondays. But running quiz is what pulls me out of my funk and tonight was no different. Even if I was feeling like I was bit off here and there, there’s always a great bunch of quizzers at Green Room Burgers and Beer and that Caprese burger always makes my stomach happier. So properly fueled up and with beer in hand, let’s get to quiz! We saw the return of that big point Sooner or Later round and teams had to make tough choices about how much they knew about actors and their roles. I know I would have been leaning heavily on my teammates for this one, so I

Now, That Music Does Sound Good!
JenKiper

I enjoy a pleasant surprise as much as anyone and we all were in luck with to come across one last night at quiz. That new amplifier sounds really great and the music never sounded so sweet at Green Room Burgers and Beer. It really couldn’t help me sound any better, but everybody could hear me over the packed house of quizzers. And that is something that makes me happy no matter what! On to the quiz… That extra 16 point round threw a lot of people for a loop. With points on the line, teams had to answer questions by picking the correct number for each question. Precision paid off with two points for the correct answer. Teams could also earn a point if

Rally Round the Quiz
JenKiper

With Green Room Burgers and Beer full of quizzers, we set sail for a night of quiz fun. It’s been a while since I had a really full house and last night there were so many of you. A few newbies found their way to us and lots of folks came back because they really enjoy quiz. We also had some extra prizes from our lovely bar from Sierra Nevada. Those snap coozies were pretty damn cool and popular with everyone. Our bonus 16 point round made lots of teams second guess themselves. Teams could put down a single answer for two points or two answers for one point if either was correct. I know that sometimes I know that the answer one of two options and this round just

Nasty Women to the Front
JenKiper

While quite a few of us are dreading the end of this week, and the next four years, I’m happy to say that we found a bright spot in this week’s quiz. I know that I’ll need some cheering up from time to time in the near future and I can always count on a great bunch of folks, many self-identified nasty women, who come out to quiz each week. After doing this for three years, I can honestly say that I’m pretty damn lucky to get to do this every week. Thanks for supporting quiz and our lovely hosts at Green Room Burgers and Beer by enjoying tasty burgers and delicious beverages every week! For the first time in a while, we only had two 16 point

Can’t We All Agree that Dave Mathews’ Voice is a Torture Device?
JenKiper

As we trot into the new year, I was ready to give some good quiz to a great group of folks. The place was packed with lots of folks in the house for quiz. We jumped in with both feet and went forward with quiz. With beers in hand, we were primed and ready to get started. Bonus 16 point rounds in effect and everyone was wondering when to use that joker. Last night’s music round tortured me more than it tortured all of you. Dave Matthews cover songs. As if I already didn’t like the guy, then there’s a whole torturous round of him screwing up other people’s songs. I really think John and Ringo should sue him for that awful Beatles cover and I think they could win

New Year, New Quiz: Now With Even More Math Anxiety
JenKiper

There may be a lot of things I’m worried about in the new year, but quiz ain’t one of them. I know that I’ll be here through political crap and personal tragedy and in sickness and in health. It really is a bright spot in my week and I’m always happy to see some familiar, mostly friendly, faces and a pack of new ones each week. So keep up the good work and I’ll be here when you need someone to tell you silly stories about anchors or whatever else pops into my head. With three 16 point rounds, there were lots of points to be claimed in last night’s quiz. The music round proved to be a tough one with all those January birthday artists, so lots of jokers

Kicking 2016 Right On Out the Door
JenKiper

Tonight was our last quiz in the crap storm that has been 2016. I think lots of us can name some pretty awesome things that happened to us personally this year. I mean, I can name ten live shows that were some of the best I’ve ever seen that happened this year. But as a collective experience 2016 has punched us all in the gut over and over. And with just a few days left it seems as though there are some more punches left in it. With all this gloom and doom, I wanted to bring some joy to all the quizzers that joined us and so we persevered and made our own joy despite 2016’s end game. When the term blowie showed up at quiz, I thought I might know what that was and, turns

Subbing for Jen
Travis

Hey now! That was a really great time last night! Thanks for letting me sub at Green Room, Jen. Also, thank you all coming out last night.   What did we learn for last night's game? Well, we learned that the holidays are horrible for everyone. We learned that marsupials are fascinating creatures, they just need to stay away from the Clap. And finally, we learned that no one has seen "The Man in the High Castle."   Congratulations to the top 3 teams last night! That would be Sticky Bandits in third with 84 points, Barking Spiders in second with 89 points, and the Airing of Grievances came in first with 90. Way to go, everyone!

Maybe Some Holiday Sprits Will Help
JenKiper

With a new microphone in hand, I was ready for a fun filled night of quiz. I’m glad I had that new fancy mic cause my voice was struggling at times. Tis the season for holiday cheer and nasty sinus congestion with coughing. While that can make for a festive season, it can make for a croaky quizmaster. With my hot tea and beer at the ready, it’s all about balance, we set off for a cruise through a festive quiz narrated by my sometimes creaky voice. Enough about me, on to the quiz! We learned a lot about three pretty interesting guys last nigh…John, Justin, and Jesus. A whole round was dedicated to the true American hero that was John Glenn. He lead a pretty damn full

That Awful Sound Is Making Me Nauseous…And This Time It’s NOT Florence and The Machine
JenKiper

I really enjoy music of all kinds and especially enjoy live music. When I host and play quiz, one of my favorite rounds is the music round. Until today, I’ve only run across on music round that I didn’t really enjoy which consisted of an entire round of classical covers and we only got two out of 16 correct. Sad day indeed. I’ve even survived a round of Phish and Counting Crows covers. But last night made all of that look like an awesome time. Sometime YouTube brings us good things, like funny cat videos and some talented musicians we’ve never heard on the radio. Then there’s the rest of it and last night the music round featured the most painful music
