How Did We Get Here? Oh, Right, Koalas.
ChristopherRounsville

Last week I gave the reins to Geeks Who Drink’s newest Quizmaster, Mr. Aaron Monts, and not only did he absolutely kill it, he opened my eyes to a new take on playlist creation. I took the time this week to ignore every Idahoan instinct in my body and included what I consider some “fire” tracks from some of the few rappers I’ve come across. I hope you weren’t thrown off too much, and if you have anything you’d like to add let me know, I’m happy to come up with a crowd created playlist, especially since faces and teams are becoming more and more familiar as people start to realize there is no better way to start your Thursday night than with Georgetown

Making Georgetown great again! .... errr, wait, it already was!
Aaron

Aaron here, thanks for making my first night as a Quizmaster a great one! Thanks for eschewing the GOP Presidential debate and Trump’s sideshow for some Pub Quiz. It was a great crowd with great beer, and great food—that vegetarian Rueben, right?! You were seriously a great crowd! The competition tonight was fierce. Seven teams entered the arena all competing for the top prize, but alas only one could emerge victorious. That dubious honor goes to Godsmacklemore—who actually led the night wire to wire. However, they only eked out their victory! Sitting only four-points behind them was Creativity Pending waiting for one misstep, unfortunately

As The Duke, I Take Tax Benefits
ChristopherRounsville

I saw an oddly motivating commercial during a recent Adult Swim (specifically ‘Sealab 2021) binge-a-thon. It starred someone who looked like a successful hipster with a certain quality that made me feel like I should know him because he’s probably really famous. Anyway, he said his best advice for moving and starting a business in New York was to take whatever you feel is definitively true to your city, and transfer exactly that there. It made me think about the possibility of a PinBall bar in that area. Seattle has quite a few, Flip-Flip Ding-Ding and Add-A-Ball for examples. I don’t know how much of a localized idea that is, but friends across the country claim there is

Simon Says He Doesn't Want To Have To Choose Sides
ChristopherRounsville

First, just something to go along with the recent deaths of two universally liked celebrities. It’s hard to tell what people are more upset about this week. David Bowie was a pop culture icon, and a person for everyone who feels distant from the status quo to look upon as an example of embracing oneself for who you are. Alan Rickman is a premier example of someone to look at when it comes to never giving up on your dreams, Die Hard was his first ever movie, that when he was 46. While it’s hard to look upon their deaths and see them as anything more than a major loss for the entertainment industry, it provides us with the chance to rediscover Bowie’s music, right

1 Week Down, 51 To Go!
ChristopherRounsville

It's 2016 now, and even though I played out that "see you next year!" joke as much as the next guy, it's been nearly a full month since I was here in Georgetown at the GLC taking your Quizzing experience to the next level, we're talking about the best thing since sliced bread.  While on that subject, I suppose you could argue ancient peoples of yesterland sliced their bread, but do you really want to get into the semantics of all that?  I mean, I know it's been a while since I been out the house but now I'm here you want to stand around running yo' mouth? I can't hear nothing you saying or spitting, so what's up? Don't you see we are here in the club? Man shut the f- whoa, sorry,

This Quiz is Brought to You From Highway 99
Sara Lydia

So quiz finished at 10:30, and I was very eager to get home to the chores I still had to get done this evening. As luck would have it, there was a car crash on 99, and I am currently stuck in a bumper to bumper stand still writing my blog for quiz. I, of course, I hope those in the crash are okay and are safe. I’m not a terrible person. But if they could hurry up and stop blocking my way home, I would be much appreciative. Seriously, GTFO of my way. Chris headed over to Spokane to watch the new Star Wars movie with friends from high school. So I got to host quiz at the Georgetown Liquor Company tonight. Five teams played tonight, and I enjoyed meeting a new crowd of people. WANDI

Hey there!

My name is Sara Lydia Coleman Campbell, and I have been a quizmistress with Geeks Who Drink for nearly two years. I used to host regularly in Redmond but now host occasionally as a sub around Seattle. As much as I enjoyed hosting every week at an awesome venue, I have been loving going to new bars and restaurants and meeting new quizzers and staff. When I'm not hosting quiz, I am either working as a nanny for two kickass boys, taking classes for Elementary Education, playing games and eating good food with friends, or cuddling with my dog.

You Are The Reason I'll Watch The FF Franchise.
ChristopherRounsville

That's right, I have a confession to make.  I've never seen any of the Fast Furious movies.  Car porn has never really been my kind of movie, even the chase scene in the new Bond suckfest 'Spectre' was too much, so an entire 87 minutes seems daunting.  I'll change my ways though, if such a franchise can spawn 5+ weeks of team names, and Ludicris is in it, I'm sure it can't be that bad.   Holy schmoly, I was wondering where everyone went last week, and this week looks like I've found you.  Thanks again for coming out to another cozy night at Georgetown Liquor Co., we had 8 teams looking to get money rained down upon them, and in the end, after back, forth, position

I Didn't Realize "The Wiz" Was So Popular
ChristopherRounsville

Wasn't Michael Jackson in that? Or am I thinking of the movie Men in Black? I'm not entirely sure, I've never claimed to be an authority on MJ's past.  Speaking of Michael Jackson, is he off the hook for all that Neverland Ranch stuff? I'm not sure how that ever ended outside of the court of public opinion, which is pretty much the only one that matters to a celebrity.  Quizzing was fun! We had 3 teams doing battle, and one team finding a way to pull their defeat from the Jaws of Victory.  After leading the entire night going into the final round, Dazed And Confused: Austin Drift fell all the way into last, making room for We Just Came (here)

I’ve Never Wanted To Go To Kokomo Until Now.
ChristopherRounsville

I always thought Indiana was just fly over country, but the Beach Boys make it seem like it’s so much more, some sort of tropical paradise nestled in the Midwest. Maybe with my next vacation time I’ll do just that. Speaking of vacation time, I’m letting you know now like I let you know during Quiz, GLC will not be having a Quiz Night next Thursday, with everyone getting ready for Black Friday and all. I think I’m going to try and get a new gaming console/game package, but then I have to ask myself do I really want to spend $400 on what pretty much turns into something I just watch Netflix on? Maybe, apparently Star Wars Battlefront is a pretty good game, minus the whole

Just Like The Good Ol' Days
ChristopherRounsville

There is something special about this place, no matter if we're packed to the rafters or nice and cozy like last night, we always seem to find the perfect balance during Quiz here at Georgetown Liquor.  With only 4 teams tonight, the night could have belonged to anyone.  Apparently Blink 183 didn't get that memo though, and decided to roll over the other teams, with a first place finish a full 15 points ahead of the second place finishing Sinister 6 . Special shout out to the optimistic Dazed And Confused 2, who finished second to last place, but in their eyes they finished in a respectable 3rd.   We're

The Name Is Bond. Bland Bond.
ChristopherRounsville

Heavy Sigh. I went to see the new James Bond movie, right after watching a Cracked video on why it’s going to be terrible. I hoped that wasn’t going to cause me to bring in too many negative thoughts, as I really just want Daniel Craig to run around various scenes shooting bad guys, and then crash an expensive car into an explosions factory to end the movie. And that's kinda the exact thing that I got.  I mean exactly that. And exactly only that.  It wasn't as good as I wanted, and now we'll see where Daniel Craig falls in the all time Bond list. Quiz shaped up nice! At 8:28 we had only 3 or 4 teams, and by 8:39 we had our 7 contesting teams doing battle!

Boo!
ChristopherRounsville

Scared you didn't I? It's almost Halloween everybody! Got everything yet? I'm ashamed to admit I'm still missing one crucial piece to my costume, but overall I'm the most prepared I think I've ever been for a Halloween event.  On top of that, I just finished carving my pumpkin in resemblence to the Death Star, so I've got that going for me, which is nice. Tonight we had 5 teams vying for first place, and low and behold miracles do happen.  A team of two people, led by Mr. History Major, took on the bar and slipped their way into first, narrowly surpassing our second place team by a single point. People are excited over playoff soccer right now, I remember a few months

Read Yo Books Kids
ChristopherRounsville

Little things like that can go a long way come quiz time.  Just ask The Curious Case Of Benjamin Gazi. Not only did they have the best team name of the night, but they kicked ass while doing it, blowing most everyone out of the water with their book knowledge.  Don't worry, maybe next week there will be a round on the Kardashians for you. I walked into the Georgetown Liquor Company today and noticed a new sign hanging in the window. It was for a local band playing a gig down the street, and it featured a man blowing into a tuba into the posterior of a woman. My only thoughts are with those involved in the photo shoot, maybe except the guy who figured that

The Title Is The MOST Important Thing
ChristopherRounsville

I can’t believe I’ve seen multiple workers from my other quiz out in the real world, it’s almost like seeing your teacher at the grocery store, what is there really to talk about? Outside of that, we had a birthday in Quiz tonight, or as they called it (and how I will from now on call my own) Beerth-day. Plus they finished 1st place! Congrats It's My Beer-th Day!  Also, Pee Holes came in second place, tying our too big team, so that’s something! We had a team of 8 tonight, and they didn’t take the option to split up and compete with one another, I don’t get it, I take any and every opportunity

Paula Cole Was Looking For The Wrong Type Of Person
ChristopherRounsville

It was like taking a step into the past this week, as we had a very intimate quiz setting with four teams making up the competitive field. I'm going to blame it on everyone's fear of team Scoregasm coming back to dominate, although they missed their chance as Scoregasm came in with only half of their team, so this would have been your time to shine.  The top two teams tonight were Coneheads of Dunshire taking first place honors, and Fishes grabbing second place, and also a new little spot in my heart.  Take it from them, it's better to write something down even if you don't know, if nothing else to make fun of movies like "We Bought

What Are You Going To Be For Halloween?
ChristopherRounsville

You've got one full month to get a costume together, and I swear if I see anyone wearing one of those $20 Darth Vader onesies, I'm going to have to force choke a bitch.  Me? Well, the only thing I can reveal is that I've got zebra pants and a kick ass hat in my future. Quiz Night! Special shout out to the artist who took the time and effort to draw an exact replica of his/my/our penis.  I had always thought anatomy class was off, it's good to know there are others who have their members come to a sharp point, juevos that glow, and a total package that manages to have an electrical energy field around it.  Dick bros for life! The place was absolutely packed,
