Your Mom Knows What A Sybian Is
Donny

                Tis the night Hallmark rules!  Happy Valentine’s Day or as I like to call it, happy national commercialism day!  Seriously, Hallmark and all the chocolate companies have a field day on February 14th.  My favorite day is February 15th because all the chocolate is marked at half price!  I know it’s the night for lovers, but we had a lot of fantastic singles AND couples join us for the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz.  Southeast Texas had a lot of rain earlier and it brought in the cold weather.  The heaters were cranked and the night was cool and

I Got Me A Ed-ju-macation!
Donny

Welp-we have a new secretary of education!  And this new secretary of education is completely unqualified as a couple of teams playing tonight’s quiz made note in their team names.  It may be a sad day in America for the future of education but the rest of us have to take our useless knowledge and use them for the Geeks Who Drink Pub quiz.  Who knows?  Maybe one day all of us who are completely unqualified can be President of the United States one day?  After all, ANYONE can do ANYTHING now, right?  Alright, I’m getting off my soap box now.  I’ll try and not get back up there….let’s move on to the night! Despite the

We Got A Hard One
Donny

For the past two weeks at Luke’s Icehouse in Beaumont, the crowd for the Geeks Who Drink  Pub Quiz have been booming!  AND both weeks have included people spending their birthday with us and for that, we are very thankful.  The weather has been perfect for the past week or so here in Southeast Texas-which can only mean one thing.  Bad weather is upon us!  In the meantime, us Southeast Texans will soak up the beautiful weather!                  Tonight’s quiz was a doozy and we had about fifteen (sixteen if you count a late entry) teams playing a pretty difficult quiz-at

Happy Birthday to the Last Jedi! Not so fast Jar Jar Binks...
Donny

Greetings my fellow geeks!  The weather here in southeast Texas was BEAUTIFUL and we had lots of teams out in full force-ready to play the pub quiz!  This, on the same day the world found out the name of the next “Star Wars” film brought to Luke’s Icehouse a total of twelve teams.  The sky was clear and Luke’s Icehouse was celebrating not one but TWO birthdays and they had a big party which included lots of people.  That’s what I love about pub quizzes-we all forget the hustle and bustle of the work day to come together as friends and share the same love of hanging out with our friends and drinking (or not).  It’s such a fun time.

Donny

Birthday, penises, and lube OH MY!  Yes, I got to say penis and lube in the same quiz y’all!  It was awesome.  Not that I couldn’t say those words in every quiz I host, but these were all within the question and answer.  It was legit y’all.  We also celebrated the birthday of a member of one of our regular teams so that was a lot of fun.  They were in California last week and were all wearing Disneyland stuff tonight and you know they got that Goofy movie question right!                 It was a cloudy night this Tuesday and although the weather teased us with

Your Mom's A Piece of Art
Donny

After three months, I can now fully say that my quizmaster cherry has been sufficiently popped.  I say this because my schedule is now changing.  I was taking the place of the area’s regular quizmaster, Stephanie-who trained me and is amazing.  Now she’s back and she’s taking BACK her locations EXCEPT for one!  I still get to keep every Tuesday at Luke’s Beaumont!  YAY!!!  The fact that I live SO close to this place makes it even better!  Welcome back Stephanie and thanks to Luke’s for welcoming me with open arms every Tuesday from here on out!  My scorekeeper John Jeans and myself are thankful!

Danger! Danger! High Voltage!
Donny

I went into panic mode last night fellow geeks.  I get to my venue and everyone is having a great time and going well.  Teams of pub quiz players are filling up the place-there’s even a birthday for one of our regulars.  I set up my equipment and nothing works.  YIKES!  Panic time! Everything is set up correctly and yet no sound.  WTF?  I’m looking up rules on how to play without audio-do we have to cancel?  WHAT?  My awesome scorekeeper John Jeans and myself are trying to figure out furiously what the heck is going on.  We’re talking with the manager on duty whose name is Charlie and he’s trying to figure out what’s

Picture It! Sicily,1945...
Donny

                Merry Christmas everyone!!!  Now that it’s finally over, lets focus on the road to a new year.  I like to call the week in between Christmas and New Year a “road.”  Everyone is winding down from Christmas and gearing up to celebrate a brand-new year-all in one week.  It’s an odd week, but the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz will ALWAYS be here!  I had to miss Luke’s Beaumont last week due to a prior obligation, but I’m back this week and what happens just hours before quiz?  It starts to pour!  Lliterally, buckets of rain began to fall from

Proving Climate Change is Very Real
Donny

                Last week, it was blistering cold in Southeast Texas-today it was hot and humid.  This evening at Luke’s Beaumont, we had one team surrounding a fire and one team turning on a high-powered fan to blow in their direction.  If that isn’t a case for climate control folks, I don’t know what else is.  Only in Southeast Texas, only in Southeast Texas.  Welcome back to Luke’s Icehouse in Beaumont!  Overall, it was a pretty calm night with only eight teams playing, but they seemed to mostly be new teams which was nice.  I also think one team had a birthday

Female Anatomy?
Donny

Meanwhile, back at Luke’s Icehouse Beaumont….it was a chilly night and all the teams gathered around the fire with their drinks in one hand and a pencil in the other.  It’s time for the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz!!!  After an entire weekend of nothing but rain, Southeast Texas happily welcomed the clear night to have fun with friends!  We welcomed ten teams into the mix for the game tonight-a lot of returning teams and some new ones or at least old teams with new names.                 Returning teams include Chick-Fil-Atio, Trivia Newton John Joins Titanic Swim Team, and two

Goodbye Travis!!!

                The week after Thanksgiving….who wants to go back to work, AM I RIGHT!?  The Geeks Who Drink want to go back to work, that’s who-because really, this isn’t work-it’s fun!  Last night at Luke’s Icehouse in Beaumont was no exception!  It was a wet, rainy night but we managed to get six great teams who all did a fantastic job.  Thanks to you all who came out and played the quiz despite the rain.  It was nice to see all your lovely faces!  This was also an ending for our scorekeeper, Travis, who played his last night with us at Luke’s Icehouse

It's Turkey Lurky Time
Donny

Holiday week!  Who doesn’t love it?  And to top it off, we are about to celebrate Thanksgiving with tons of food and friends and family---unless you don’t like being around your family.  In that case, do yourself a favor and start your holiday week off right and play the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz!  Boy, did they come out too!  We started off the night with eleven teams-is it just me or does every time the word eleven is spoken, “Stranger Things” comes to mind?  Crazy, right?  Ah well!  Towards the end of the night we dwindled down to nine teams-but that’s alright.  Everyone had a great time.  Especially a VERY enthusiastic

Drugs Are Bad MmKay!
Donny

                The stars at night were shiny and bright….deep in the heart of Texas!  It was a gorgeous night at Luke’s Icehouse in Beaumont Texas, so much so that we had ten teams come out to try and play their hand at a little pub quiz.  We had a couple of the regulars, the aptly named Blue Balls and a team that changes their name every week-which I love.  This week, their team name was Lamborghini Panini (cricket sounds).  Come on, it’s cute!  It rhymes!  J                  Round one was fun with the abbreviations

                  Soooo….Pub Quiz on Election Night?  I was a nervous wreck!  I’m not going to talk about any of that right now, so I am just going to focus on the quiz we played last night!  Thanks to all the teams for coming out last night---we had six great teams including some new teams to the mix.  My personal favorite team name was “Titanic Swim Team!”  There’s just something about that name that I love.  Is it too soon?                 We had one of our Madison’s teams come over to Luke’s

Political PUNdits
Donny

Today was my very first day on my own!  The usual quizmaster, Stephanie, is officially on maternity leave and Ii am taking over!  For two months, anyway.  It was also my very first night to host at Luke’s Beaumont-which is our area’s largest venue.  Thank God I have the help of my trusty scorekeeper Travis to help keep me in line.  We had a fantastic night!  Things seemed to settle down after All Hallows Eve and this year’s election is in full swing.                 We had two names to celebrate the election-the Trumpsters and You Can’t Handle The Email.

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow
Stephanie

Time flies when you're having fun! It sure doesn't seem like it's been 9 months already, but my little quiz princess will be here in a few short weeks, so unfortunately this will be my last Tuesday with y'all for awhile. More specifically, until after the 1st of the year. As much as it pains me to leave everyone (even temporarily), I've got a lot of things to do to prepare myself for my greatest adventure yet.....motherhood!! But not to worry, the quiz will go on! I've got a wonderful replacement all lined out to fill in for me in my absence, and it will just make it all that much better when I get back! Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? So let's enjoy this last
