More Rain
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Saw some faces I haven’t seen in a few months, that was cool. Not sure if you guys noticed, but I was in a world of pain. Why you ask? Because home builders should know better than to build exterior stairs out of glazed granite. Current state? Bruised right shin. Swollen left kneecap. Scraped left elbow and left hand. Sore neck and shoulder. BUT! When I caught my fall to prevent my teeth from breaking off in my damn skull, it worked! My teeth and face are saved. Okay, so quick Big Brother hopes. I know that Vic and Corey are on the block after Paul pulled himself down. Straight up, the only person who should think keeping Vic is smart is

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Golden Apples and Butternut Fizzy
Rainbow Brite

Thank you guys for coming out tonight! The weather was absolutely miserable, it’s the middle of vacation season, and turnout was still solid. I call that a good night. Okay, so I’m sitting here staring at the “Big Buck HD” game. I’ve never actually watched the screen. I just sort of assumed that a game called “Big Buck” involved shooting at deers. There are a lot of zombies. There are a lot of bears. I have not seen a single deer in over 2 minutes. I’m calling false advertising. Really though, I’m just happy it’s not that silly Duck Dynasty game. The fucker squawks! Big Brother POV is tonight. But I know Victor wins and doesn’t

OMG THEY OLYMPICS
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. We are in week 3 of the big Saint Arnold Brewing Company raffle. The drawing happens September 14th. All you have to do is show up every week and you get entries to win the big prize. (And I give away a ton of swag every week… and I’m like, fucking delightful, so why wouldn’t you come anyway?) Let’s talk Big Brother. The most destructive forces in a BB house are emotional players and showmances, and something like 90% of the house is composed of those. I’m starting to think that the world is out of competitive reality tv players like Boston Rob and Terry Dietz are over. (Survivor players, sure. But Big

Next Drawing: Saint Arnold Brewing Company!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out! Some of you showed up early and got to see a real life GWD audition. If you ever wanna give it a go and try out, come talk to me and I’ll hook you up with details. I dropped the line on our next big drawing. It’s sponsored by Saint Arnold and it’s going down on September 14th. They’re going to be sweetening up the prize pot for the next few weeks as well, so extra enticing stuff there. (Like I’m not enticing enough!) It’s worth pointing out that tonight’s round 2 was fucking awesome. Punk covers of pop songs, gah! So perfect. Perfect not just because I’m a fan of it, but because like three weeks

What REALLY Happened...
Paddycake

So I bet you're all wondering where Katie was last night. I thought about donning a light pink wig just to see if anyone would notice a difference... but I figured that would be pointless. I know I said she was at a wedding... that is what she asked me to tell you... but here is what really happened... So the wedding thing is actually true. She is going to a wedding this week... yesterday afternoon she was touching up her color, and the chemicals ended up burning her scalp, and caused all her hair to fall out. She spent all night searching wig shops to find a wig that looked exactly like her hair did before the incident, and finally found one late last night at around 11. She

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Deep Ellum Brewing Giveaway was TO-DAY!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Another 18+ team week. Is this the new norm? I’m okay if it is! Keep it coming so that I can get me a scorekeeper and work less hard ‘n stuff. Huge thank you/shout-out to Ashley at Deep Ellum Brewing Company for those Astros tickets. (BTW, if you’re ever in Dallas and need to get your quiz on, Deep Ellum has us in their kick-ass taproom once a week. So do that. Or just go there, get some pizza from Serious Pizza and kill a Saturday the best way possible.) So Big Brother status: We’ve got Da, Tiffany, and whoever on the block. Tiffany or Da is going to go the fuck home. I really, really hope that Da goes home. I know that

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! 23 mother fucking teams! Geezus Louizeeus. Or however you spell that. I are unliterate. Not really. I am really wanting tomorrow to hurry up and get here so that I can see who gets the Big Brother boot. (Boo! Big Brexit never caught on as a Twitter hashtag. I TRIED!) I’m not certain who the current noms are because I’m not sure who won the POV. I know that Frank is running Bridgette’s H.O.H. show, and I’m not convinced she realizes she’s there to win. As best I can tell every houseguest under the age of like 28 is there to mindlessly repeat their Instagram and Twitter accounts. When did “Twitter famous”

Inching Closer to the Big Prize
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We had a record three Dick Wolf related team names, including the OG Dick Wolfs.  No Shit Fucks though, but my ego will recover. Ha! We’ve only got a few more weeks before that big Deep Ellum Brewing Company drawing, so make sure you are coming every week to get more entries. And to see me. More importantly to see me. But the chance to win a Deep Ellum swag bag is still pretty freaking awesome. I am currently excited because I’m pretty sure we’re about to see Victor get sent home, home on the Big Brother range. He’s a back door nom, the majority of the house can’t stand him, I can’t stand him. All works.

Venue Meta
Rainbow Brite

Hey, hey, hey... Just knocked out another evening of Geeks Who Drink over here at Little J's Bar. The bar seems to have its own meta. We've got multiple teams now naming themselves after seasoned champs "Dick Wolf", and this was not the first night someone went as "The Shit Fucks". I'm okay with all of this. Granted, a lot of that is vanity… you all are naming yourselves after things I say. I’m special. But also I say it because it’s fun to say, and I strongly encourage everyone to say it. BUT NEVER BE ONE! THAT’S RULE #3! Always. Another

Best Quiz for a Cause Ever
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight for a special edition of Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz! We ran a fundraiser for the Houston Urban Debate League and raised nearly $800 to send kiddos to summer debate camp. There were 30 teams, 26 donated, and the winning team generously put their $130 prize back to the charity. I gave out Mystery Science Theatre 3,000 tickets. Deep Ellum Brewing swag. Gift cards. GOOD FUCKING WILL! Seriously, I’ve done these before, and I’ve never come close to raising the kind of money we raised tonight. 30 teams is huge. And the teams were full. This was theme quiz huge and it went off without a hitch. I hope to see many of your faces back in the future. (But

QFAC For HUDL
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We were down video so you all didn’t get a chance to see the splash screen for the upcoming Quiz for a Cause going down next Wednesday. The quiz benefits the Houston Urban Debate League (HUDL). Google them, they do some great stuff. I debated in high school for a broke-ass school and had to pay my own way to go to tournaments, and couldn’t afford to go to the camps that a lot of kids went to. Camp’s not necessary to do well, but man if it doesn’t make life easier. The extra rounds, the different view points, the ability to do a mountain of research over the summer with access to university-level data bases. It makes a difference.

TV Guide
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. It was another give-away bonanza courtesy Deep Ellum Brewery. Goodness. Nobody will need glassware when this is all said and done. Or shirts, or snapbacks, or stickers, or sunglasses… You get the idea. So we are still several weeks out from new reality tv. (Big Brother.) That leaves me without much to discuss, so how about some binge-tv recommendations? Stuff I’m currently addicted to: Reign. I started watching it because I tend to like royalty period pieces. They tend to have a lot of violence and over the top sub-plots. Loads of yelling and beheadings. This is far tamer than Tudors, which I adored and is available on Netflix,

Thank you guys for coming out tonight, and a super special thanks to the folks over at Deep Ellum Brewery for all the swag they brought. If you got a fist full of those pins, they’re bitchin’ and I’m jealous. A worse host would pilfer some for herself. I am saint goddamnit. I also have been going to Deep Ellum Brewery for forever (Dallas rocks!) and have more swag than I know what to do with. Ha! To everyone who won a pair of shades, those will come in profoundly handy if you are a river floater like myself. (So will cans of the Dallas Blonde! Seriously, great floatin’ beer.) Oh, and then that other thing. The Disney theme quiz is tomorrow. Don’t forgot

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We had a solid turnout for the Shiner Bock drawing. Dick Wolf walked away the winners. The goodies? A gigantic wooden ice chest with a lock and a ton of Shiner goodies inside. Hopefully they show up with pics for me next week. I will share pics when I have them. As is usual after a drawing, I’d like to take the time to remind everyone about what we do here. Every 8 weeks we run a raffle season. The season is sponsored by a Texas brewery. Each team gets an entry each week they play, just for playing. The top three placing teams all get extra entries. On the 8th week we do a drawing and the winning team gets an armful of swag. I

A most friendly of friendly reminders that next week is the Shiner drawing. For those of you not in the know, every 8 weeks we do a drawing here. The drawings are sponsored by Texas breweries, and Shiner is sponsoring the current drawing. You get an entry every week you play, and extra entries for placing in the top three.

Fear Fear the Walking Dead
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. We took a bit of a dip the last two weeks with weather stuffs, but you all showed up in full force. Yay! I have a question. Is *anyone* at all watching Fear the Walking Dead? I am. I am finding it damn well near impossible to get into the show. Like, I was seriously rooting for Jesse McCartney to shoot the boat up, kill the entire cast, and take over, basically rebooting the entire series. When he died, I was rooting for zombie Jesse McCartney to chew everyone’s faces off. Like, there isn’t a single likeable character on the entire show. At all! Dunno why I keep watching it. Like I still tune into Once Upon a Time even though that show has
