GET OFF MY LAWN!
Discount Doug Mart

When I walked into New Heights I was shocked to see wall to wall teenagers. It was as if I stepped into The Max from Saved by the Bell instead of the New Heights Grill. I tried to ask Terrance and company what the heck (no swearing in front of the kids) was going on, but was met with the blank stare of someone who had been dealing with teens and tweens for far too long. I never did find out what exactly was going on, but the place was so packed with kids that our regular quizzers resorted to cramming in tiny nooks and crannies and doing anything but break the fire code in order to play our quiz. I was sort of hoping the kids would leave when I (lame-o adult)

B***h Better Have My Money!
Discount Doug Mart

There was nary a Star wars question to be asked on this very special Star Wars day. Probably because they all got used up in the special Star Wars themed geek quiz going on over on the other side of town. (edit: after further review, there was one star wars question. One solo Han Solo question I forgot about) We did have one on-theme team name: With You Now, The Fourth Be. That provided a good opportunity to try out my Yoda impression, which is nowhere near as good as my Chewbacca impression I got to use a few weeks back. Oh, well. So, after

No, Not Beelzebub, But It Might as Well Be

Welcome to another Geeks Who Drink Thursday Night Pub Quiz here at Cleveland Heights's own New Heights Grill. T. & Co. were pouring our drinks and serving our great food, as usual.   PacMan Jackman takes the win (again) with an impressive 85 points.   In second we had Boof!   Our third place winners were This Wedding is Horseshit!   Our other fine competitors were:   No Tables; No Problem,   Pretty

Make way for Lebron
Discount Doug Mart

First things first. There is definitely NO QUIZ NEXT WEEK because the Cavs (that’s Cleveland’s basketball team for any of you sports-hating nerds) will be playing a playoff game and Lebron James personally asked me if I could cancel the quiz so people could pay attention to him on the TVs. I begrudgingly agreed. No for a shocking bit of sadder news: there MAY be no quiz the week after that either. It depends on how the Cavs do. If they need to go to game 6, it will be on that Thursday. I know that’s a lot to process and you all are in shock. We’ll get through this though. Just keep in mind that you might not be seeing me again until May

Rare Pearl Jam imports for sale!
Discount Doug Mart

Confession time. I used to be a HUGE Pearl Jam fan when I was in high school. Huge! I had a job as a dishwasher, and I probably spent 90% of the money I made on Pearl Jam CDs. I would constantly go to the record stores and look for rare imported discs, live albums, or different versions of singles with different B-sides. I have probably 50 different CDs. I have compilation albums that they had songs on. I have CDs from bands where one member of Pearl Jam is featured on one song. I have vinyl copies of a bunch of their studio releases. Tons of stuff. Then in college...I just sort of stopped liking them. I think I

Happy Birthday, Happy Engagement, Good Wedding Luck, and Happy New Job!
Discount Doug Mart

If you can remember all the way back to last week, you’ll remember the audio round from hell featuring Chewbacca. You would think that an audio round featuring Smash Mouth would be just as bad… if not worse, but it was great! I loved hearing Miley Cyrus and Ke$ha mashed up with All-Star. That round was SUPER FUN for me for some reason. Probably because I’m a sucker for pop music AND I’m a sucker for mash-ups. Everyone seemed to enjoy it though, so maybe everyone has as bad of taste as I do. Side note: if you like mashups, have you heard GirlTalk? That dude is the best!

Man, that Chewbacca-Disney round was nuts, right! I felt like I was taking crazy pills listening to that growling mashed up with Aladdin and Little Mermaid songs. Somehow you guys were able to figure out even the most difficult ones like Mulan and Moana. wuuh huuguughghg. Yup, that last sentence there was written in Shyriiwook, the main language spoken by Wookies.

Pretty Freakin Impressive
Discount Doug Mart

It was good to be back at New Heights after having to miss last week for a work function. I could tell you guys were sort of disappointed to see me and not Tim when you walked in last night. Sorry...you’re stuck with me! I probably should have had a sub last night too and spared you all my raspy voice and general foggy-headed ineptitude. That cold I just fought off was a doozy! Anyhow, we had a packed house where we learned all about NCAA basketball and Smelling Like Teen Spirit. We played board games and read Tennessee Williams plays. Speaking of Tennessee Williams,

“When Did Doug Get So Handsome?”
Timmy

As your substitute QM last night I imagined lots of things you guys said… ‘Man, Tim is almost as good as Doug!’, ‘This new QM is so clear.  It’s like he’s whispering sweet quiz-nothings directly into my ear.’, and, of course ‘New Doug is so handsome!!’.  Whether it actually happened or not who’s to say?  No one, so just let me have this, okay?  My life is sad… The quiz covered a plethora of happy things.  STIs, skulls, and cannibalism, Oh My!  Hey, I just met you.  And this is crazy.  But, if you think you have Herpes and that’s normal.  Call a doctor, maybe?

Buffoon Who Sip
Discount Doug Mart

I’m going to run this week’s blog entry through Google Translate a few times, just for fun. Here goes: A great night pub quiz at New Heights Grill. Pretty freakin hard is the big winner, went home empty-handed after the last few weeks. Rural jury took second place, a team that, they were a part of Pacman knocking Jackman.Unfortunately, the weather was not as good as last week, but we had a good time anyway. I had to endure the constant criticism of my music, but I have time to listen to Lou Reed! Back off!

Warm Weather and Loud Crowds
Discount Doug Mart

In the springtime I have a bunch of these little purple flowers pop up in my front lawn. I didn’t plant them there, but they look pretty (though out of place randomly strewn about the yard) so I just leave them alone. Until I cut the grass that is. Well, anyway… it’s so gosh darn warm out that these little guys have popped their heads out already. In February! They’re going to be in for quite the shock when the snow inevitably returns! So, yeah. It was warm last night. The good weather had everyone in a good mood and the place was packed. So much so that I had to shout to be heard over

The magic feather was just a gag! You can fly!
Discount Doug Mart

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the Disney cartoon Dumbo. Or maybe it’s just one of those cultural touchstones that I never had to actually see to be familiar with. Anyway, this is all leading up to the fact that Pacman Jackman won the big prize without their beloved dinosaur mascot on hand. When I gave them their prize I said, “see Dumbo, it wasn’t an actual magic feather. You really can fly!” Then later I thought…”what the hell do I know about Dumbo? Where did that reference come from? Is that even a real reference?”

The Sound of Music
Discount Doug Mart

So, highlight of the night for me was a lady with an awesome nose ring and sweet dreadlocks slipping me a five to play Rihanna in between rounds. Like, I’ll play Rihanna for free, but I appreciate the cash! I turned the money down and played Umbrella. The whole ordeal made me uncomfortably aware of how important my in-between round activity is though. I usually default to either 80’s hits or 90’s hits. Last night I sprinkled in some Julie Andrews Sound of Music for some reason. To get that out of everyone’s head, I followed that up with some Eminem. If I was more proactive I could put together some playlists based on the theme of the

Not Even a Single Question About Groundhogs?
Discount Doug Mart

What did you do with your week off from the pub quiz? Did you curl up in a ball and cry like I did? You certainly didn’t use the time to study up on songs with spanish titles. Anyhow, we were back in business last night after a one week hiatus and we had at least two weeks worth of fun! All of the young members of Boof were MIA and the replacement Old Fogeys definitely could have used their help with some of the more pop culture centered questions. No Name

Runaway Pacman!
Discount Doug Mart

First things first: there is NO QUIZ next Thursday (1-26-2017) at The New Heights Grill. Apparently some group who must hate trivia has booked the place for a private event. The bar will still be open if you want to stop by for a drink (and/or see who these trivia haters are) but there will not be a quiz. We had another solid group of regulars in house last night, plus a few rookies. Pacman Jackman rocked the music round and was the only team to use their joker. This meant that they had at least a 20 point lead most of the night. I kept reminding everyone that
