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

2016: Almost In the Rearview Mirror
JenKiper

As we close in on December and put a bow on November, we can be happy that this one is almost in the books. We’ve lost a lot this year…Bowie, Sharon Jones, Leonard Cohen, the election. Hopefully, 2017 will bring all of you some joy and happiness, but I’m not gonna believe it’s all gonna be like that. We’re gonna face some challenges including lots and lots of quiz in the new year. But before we can get there, we’ve got to finish up this year so what happened at quiz? We’ve been seeing lots of extra 16 point rounds, but tonight’s proved to be one of the nicest ones around. At least that’s what they say about Tom Hanks, but I’ve

Thanksquizzing: Your New Pre-Holiday Celebration
JenKiper

I’m all for new holidays and I think we’ve got a great one here. I’m sure Hallmark will be designing cards featuring choice team names and some of our most entertaining rounds that you can send to your loved ones. Actually, some of these team names probably aren’t suitable for a Hallmark card so I guess we’ll just start our own line of merch. The possibilities are endless so I’ll be working on that during the holiday. I was really thankful that so many great folks came out for the new holiday and were in such high spirits. That could have been the beer talking, but we did have some fun. The bonus 16 point round once again reared its head and forced

Quiz…Moon…It’s All Super
JenKiper

Despite the specter of impending doom, we all gathered on the first Monday after the election for some fun distraction from all of that and a few laughs and beers with friends. Over the last week, I’ve really been happy to have friends around to give me perspective and talk about the future holds. As always, there’s work to be done and we’ll have some fun along the way to help us get through the tough spots. But in the end, we are all in this thing together and we owe it to each other and ourselves to speak up out and to do our best to make folks feel welcome. We aren’t gonna solve the world’s problems through quiz, but we can use it as something to get us through

Birthday and Election Eve Quiz Time
JenKiper

I know lots of us have been dreading Election Day while others can’t wait to get it over with. For me, it’s more than just that day we all go stand in line to vote and see those neighbors that we only see once or twice a year in person. It’s also my birthday. When your birthday falls on Election Day, you wonder what kind of presents you’ll get. Will it be a groundbreaking day for history or the end of the world. Lots of that depends on your perspective, but either way, everyone should get out there and get your vote on. There was cake last night and it was decked out with the gayest candles ever which were wonderful. There was even the obligatory birthday song singing
