New Teams, Two Ties, and a rivalry for the ages!
SecondChild

Holy guacamole! You guys sure like keeping Yours Truly busy!    We had an exciting, face-paced and incredibly jumpin' night over at Bull Feeney's! Ten teams! One more and I would have been out of visual round clues - I'm going to have to start printing more.  Clearly, word of my hilarious puns and excellent taste in deep 90's cuts has gotten around, and Portland came out to play.  It's always a pleasure to see new faces, and so I gave a hearty Geeks Who Drink welcome to The Brewsual Suspects, Team FAM (BAM!), Meri, Off in the Woods, and Gene Belcher's Porsche Cayenne

Kramerica Industries Takes back the Gold!
SecondChild

   Ladies and gentlemen, what a fantastic night for a Pub Quiz it was here at Bull Feeney's!   Newcomers Did That Giraffe Have That Baby Yet? put in a strong first quiz, and regulars My Personal Favorites (who I admit, it just wouldn't be the same without) came within THREE POINTS of placing in the prize zone (I don't know where the Prize Zone is - adjacent to the Danger Zone? - but I want to be there) - so close!  Tryed for Poynting (the team of a million names, except recently they've been sticking to variants of this because reasons) came out of tonight with a nice

The Rivalry Returns!
SecondChild

Oh my! What an amazing, thrilling and hilarious night it was at Bull Feeney's!    To start with, we were packed, which is always nice. We had an extremely close competition with newcomers Jalapeno FACE! ALMOST placing in a prize position! Just three points shy!    Also, perennial favourites (hurr hurr) My Personal Favorites were in nearly last place throughout much of the (due to many of the other teams Jokering early) but rallied for an AMAZING comeback to hit 2nd place after a very impressive 8th round in which they jokered (yay for strategery!) to claim their

A Latin Professor Walks Into A Bar...
Brian

Greetings and welcome to the post quiz wrap up blog with me, your guest QM, Brian! Well, I made my way back to Bull Feeney’s last night to help out and much like a junior high science class with a substitute teacher during dissection week, shit got weird fast. Bull Feeney’s is one of those venues where the players are on all sides and in some cases behind you. I made sure to stay on my toes unless I was sitting down. Which was most of the time. So really, I just sat at attention.   Anyway… We had a small but mighty crowd, 6 teams to be exact. Beer and Vodka drinks were more than just a team name and partial

Hi! I'm QM Brian, I'm the guy upfront asking the questions and making smart ass remarks about your incorrect answers. If you really want to know more about my life, come on up and ask. I probably won't answer but you will have gotten to meet a real life QM face to face and that alone has GOT to be worth the price of admission.

The fullest possible house without John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier...
SecondChild

   Wow! Talk about a full house!    We were absolutely slammin' tonight at Bull Feeney's - if another team had joined, I wouldn't have had enough visual round clues! Could be the warmer weather bringing the locals out, could be that people have heard about my unique combination of nerdy charm, bad jokes, pop culture references and eclectic musical choices.  Either way, and for whatever reason, we were AT CAPACITY tonight, and it was a LOT of fun!  I learned some things, including the fact that apparently nobody knows that Jesus was born in Bethlehem (despite the words of half of all Christmas carols saying exactly that)

Missed Connection: Dropping the Ball Like It's Hot
SecondChild

   For purposes of general comedy I shall conduct this blog post in the style of a Craigslist Missed Connections post:    You were the cute young lady with the radical, coloured hair who came in late and slipped out early, perhaps not knowing that you had come in 3rd.   I was the increasingly inebriated geek with the microphone, playing 90s alternative rock and asking people questions.  You came in and out of my life like a demon's whisper.  I had to give your rightful prize to another team.  Ok, enough of that - the real story of the night is that we had a team (Drop It Like It's Hot)

28 or 3 to What?
SecondChild

   Holy guacamole! What a battle! Well, I guess it wasn't a BATTLE so much as a VERY DRAMATIC AND CLOSE pub quiz!    It began as a night much like any other at Bull Feeney's - the regular crowd shuffled in (no, there was NOT an old man sitting next to me doing unspeakable things to his gin and tonic) as well as some newcomers. We saw the reigning champs, the deviously-named My Personal Favorites and the team formerly known as The Law Offices of Jaymes, Earl and Jones, now known hilariously as Personally, My Second Favorites, and several new teams, hungry for some of

   Oh my, oh my!    It was bound to be a jumping night at Bull Feeney's, what with the grand prize giveaway at the end of our Tournament (TOURNAMENT!) of (OF!) champions (CHAMPIONS!) - and we all had a grotesque amount of fun!    Our six teams (including latecomers and newcomers #Mike'sFault, Ja Ja Ja, and Tucker Tostito) fought valiantly across eight rounds of madness (including one of the highest scoring and oft-Jokered audio rounds I have ever witnessed) but it was returning winners Maximum Effort (3rd place -

   Wow! What a fantastic Pub Quiz we had last night over at Bull Feeney's! What a triumphant return to form for Yours Truly as well! I love how modest I am!  As per the ushjz (I can't say "usual", that's too boring), I was playing some killer tunage (maybe I should drop the ironic 90's affectation... nah) and getting mondo (ha!) compliments on some of the tracks I was kickin' out.  We saw longtime return players My Personal Favorites drop by and deal out their usual dollop of dominance. But ultimate victory was not to be theirs, this night.   We had some new

Returning to the Farm
Uncle Buck Mulligan

I've spent a wonderful two quizzes in command, but it is now time for me to give up the power and return to my fields, like Cincinnatus did. It's not for me to comment about this act of great nobility, but you can feel free to talk about it for the ages so that future generations may learn from my humble notion of duty.Seriously though, it's been a nice two weeks of questions and beer, and I'm your man should your regular host ever again need the night off. Both flowed freely last night. We covered current events, the 90's, fake scientists. All sorts of things. Speaking of the 90s, only a few of you seemed familiar with either Pulp's version *or* Shatner's version of "Common People",

Just Like Riding An Elephant
Uncle Buck Mulligan

That’s how hard it is to forget how to run a pub quiz when you are a grizzled veteran like myself. It’s also like riding an elephant because I look really cool while doing it.   But seriously, last night marked my triumphant return as the (substitute) quizmaster at Bull Feeney’s, and I couldn’t have had a better time. I haven’t been keeping close tabs on, well, anything for the last eight months, including this pub quiz, but that made it all the better to be surprised by watching a number of my old regulars flow in as we got ready to start the quiz.

A Return To Business - But Not As Usual
Krister

Good to be back! Since September I’ve been off the Bull Feeney’s pub quiz. It no longer fit my schedule. HOWEVER this week I was on vacation and Aaron, the now-regular QM, was dead or visiting his family or something. So I got to fill in! And MAN! It’s the same and also different. First off, these new scoresheets are TIGHT. As tight as a scoresheet can be, anyway. They’re fancy looking, they’re in color! They’ve got the rules on ‘em. They’re easy to use. MAN

The Munjoy Mamas Represent
SecondChild

What a fantastic evening at Bull Feeney's! This was by far the most fun I've had hosting our pub quiz in some time, and that's saying something because it's always a blast!   This week, we learned many things, including the fact that Lord Voldemort (or shuold I say he who shall not be named?) frequents Bull Feeneys! Or at least his minions do?  Team Voldemort was one of our new teams from this evening, others which included The Knights Who Say Ni! (who very nearly came in third!) - we had a great crowd, lots of teams and wonderful participation all round.  We also learned

My Personal Favorites Make It Two In A Row!

Another Monday night, another fantastic night of laughs, fun, pub quiz and prizes at Bull Feeney's!   When I was a young padawan, first learning the ways of Geeks Who Drink, my predecessor here at Bull Feeney's, Krister, taught me something very imporant: know your regulars.   Now that I am a Jedi Master (please don't sue), I have come to understand the value of those words.    In spite of a huge dump of snow and icy brick sidewalks and cold, My Personal Favorites (such a manipulative team name, I love it) and the Munjoy Mamas made it in to battle it out for

Kramerica Industries Defends the Title
SecondChild

Can ANYONE stop Kramerica Industries and her rampage of pub quiz destruction?!   Well, My Personal Favorites almost did, last night.   It was an incredibly close game, with the top three teams within a single point of each other at times. And it came down to a nail-biting sudden death showdown between Kramerica and Favorites, with Kramerica clinching it due to her quick answers and apparent knowledge of love god weaponry. Don't ask.   What a night it was! Lots of fun had by all, with IPA-Licious beating out such amazingly named teams as FullBeeney's and #ActualGilmores for
