Green Hangovers
EricBurch

okay. So we all needed to take it a little slow tonight. To be fair, we are coming out of a full St. Paddy's weekend celebration at Fado Irish Pub. We're allowed to have a cooldown, right? Some quizzers were pretty up to shape though. One team missed one question through three rounds. Every single team was perfect on the visual round (you folks know your Disney, loud and clear). We even had some experts on Stravinsky and lube. What a combination. Tonight it came down to two types of quizzers. Bumble Buddies, the late joker-ers, way behind at the break, came roaring back to surprise everyone, but fell a point short of the top spot. This week it was SMRTinis, coasting

Guinness Delicious
EricBurch

We finally made it to one of my favorite nights of the year, our dual quiz and Guinness pint pouring contest! And in addition to the free booze, free engraved pint glasses, and the opportunity to laugh at all of your friends, we still had a solid quiz tonight! Our old classic Irish round, Xs and Os, and probably the cutest visual round we've ever had. Tonight was a very exciting evening. I Don't Know stepped up to the plate to take down second place. But, finally, after all this time, Wesley Crushers rode a big music round to their first career victory! Let's try to dodge the snow next week, eh?

Boondock Saints Knowledge
EricBurch

We're one week away from our annual St. Paddy's week quiz and pint pouring contest! One of the best nights of the year here at Fado Irish Pub. But we're getting a little ahead of ourselves, aren't we? This week we had one of my most universally loved quizzes I've had the pleasure of hosting. The music round was fun. A full baseball round! A unique visual round. A round on fictional presidents! (No Deep Impact mention?) And who doesn't love a little DMB to round us out? Tonight was truly historic. The Counter Reformation made a solid second half comeback to edge Make Way For Ducklings by a point for second place. But it was finally, finally, the time for Dongs, Dongs,

Early St Paddys
EricBurch

It's an Irish Pub, after all, so it is just fine that we're already getting into the St. Paddy's spirit at Fado Irish Pub. We're still two weeks away from out annual St. Paddy's quiz, but we had a distinctly international flair this week anyway. Multiple teams full of Irish natives, a full round on Malaysia, a full round on the Swedish Chef (and thank goodness). Are the quiz writers getting tired of America already? It hasn't even been six weeks! Some impressive scores to come out of this week's quiz. Dongs, Dongs, Dongs rode a massive comeback and a tiebreaker win to a second place finish. But it was a thoroughly dominant performance from Chubby Bunnies that led

#Humblebrag
EricBurch

It amazes me each and every week how it goes here at Fado Irish Pub. You all keep finding new ways to make it crazier and crazier every Monday. I had multiple teams ask me before the quiz this week, "How is it tonight?" My reply to each was: it's a pretty average quiz. Not too tough, not too easy. Very standard. Then, the quiz happened, and I had many angry teams. As you'll see if you look to your left, I had some of the lowest scores I've ever had from top teams this week. I was wrong. My bad. I misled you. With such low scores, there was quite the cluster at the top. Obviously, we had our second consecutive sudden death round, as well as a second consecutive silver

How Are We Missing Candy?
EricBurch

More Monday nights at Fado! What could go wrong when we continue to have pub quiz week after week? It was a very different quiz this week. The music round was very forgiving, though it terrified me into briefly thinking that anyone could hate anything about Telephone. No surprise extra points tonight, so those that waited to bonus until round eight were mercilessly punished. And we finally taught some of these poor saps some etiquette, thankfully. And for the first time in what feels like months, it came down to a sudden death bonus round! But the sudden death round was very different from the rest of the evening. Dongs, Dongs, Dongs felt the pressure and faltered,

Angio = Heart
EricBurch

I swear this stuff is getting more fun every week. It's good to start having some exciting teams again at Fado Irish Pub each and every Monday night. And it's not just for the quiz, the competitiveness, all that stuff. The atmosphere's better when there are friendly faces. And the faces we've had return the last few weeks make my and the bar's job way, way easier. True, it helps when those teams are smart and win, too. But that's not really what I mean. I think. Yeah, totally. We're starting to see some serious parity again here at Fado. Whiskey & Nausea (welcome to my damn life) carried second place throughout the evening. But there was no question tonight:

Big Rhoda Fans
EricBurch

Back to back weeks here at Fado! We're starting to build something here again. It's getting much more exciting to be here on Monday nights. I'm liking a lot of things about how this is going. The rangefinder round was a blast, giving us something different and extra points. Has anyone else noticed the quiz is getting harder? Round one is tougher than usual suddenly. Round six was one of my lowest scoring rounds ever. I mean, I love it, you people need to suffer. But wow this is unusual. Somebody had to take advantage though, right? Dongs, Dongs, Dongs came close but fell short in round eight to take their second consecutive silver medal. This week it was the finally

Bartender Birthdays
EricBurch

Finally, I got to return to Fado Irish Pub after a three (3!) week layoff to do the pub quiz. It felt like years without all you people, I'm not sure how I survived. It was a fun little night to come back to as well! We're in the doldrums of ugly January weather, but we had quite the showing from some really top quality teams come out this week. You wouldn't know it by the scores though, as even with a bonus 16 point round, there were almost no freebies this week. Even round one tripped up multiple teams, a rarity for this group at Fado. So our prize winning teams this week no doubt earned their spoils. 3 Women and a Babe battled throughout the night and finally

Coming From Behind and Other Butt Stuff
Matt!

Hi, folks, Matt here, your substitute QM!   I had the pleasure of taking over for Eric this week (SLACKER - who gets one week off a year anyway?) and we had a great quiz tonight at Fado here in Columbus!   We had some surprising answers (No, the letter “U” is not a consonant), a remarkable success rate in determining Butts vs Brains in the third round tonight, and a couple of teams who fought neck and neck for the prize all night.   At the half, Strictly

Who? Mike Jones
EricBurch

A new year! But as much as things change, they much more so stay the same. Hence this weeks quiz at Fado Irish Pub! Same old teams? Check. Brutal music round? Check. Whining about math round? Check. (Deserved) Canadian Bashing? Check. Not So Smartinis in a tiebreaker? Check. But unlike in 2016, Not So Smartinis actually came out on top in the second place tiebreaker! Good for them to break a streak, while another started with Mariah Carey Claims Russians Hacked The Fiesta Bowl taking their second consecutive victory! No quiz next Monday, but we'll be back in two weeks on the 16th!

Benedict's Last Resort
EricBurch

I hope that you all had the Christmas weekend that you were hoping for this year. But at Fado Irish Pub this week, we were right back to business as usual. And that meant our regular old pub quiz! Lot's of new faces, and more reservations than I'd ever seen for a Monday night. It was a difficult quiz this week, with some unknown bands, random Benedict knowledge, and...oral? Okay, I guess. Whatever you quiz writers have on your mind. Must have been why there were multiple Angelina Jolie questions. Just four teams this evening, and there was quite a split between them. Quiz In My Pants (again?) rode an early joker to a second place finish. But there was no doubt about

Alan Thickened Arteries
EricBurch

I think we were all due for a post Star Wars hangover, which is fair. We still made it back for our regularly scheduled trivia this Monday night though! But we didn't take it easy with the quiz this week. Making people memorize their state capitals, making them name stuff that isn't instead of stuff that is, Alan Thicke (we don't know Canucks), nativities? At least you guys threw everyone a bone with Netflix. Charitable of you. There were two clear top teams this week that earned prizes. Winner's Winners led most of the evening, but fell to a late charge to take second place. It was a late joker from Don't Panic! (I guess that worked?) that led them to a victory!

We Found The Droids
EricBurch

Well it was time for our second Monday night theme quiz here at Fado Irish Pub. After the insanity that was Harry Potter, it was only fitting to jump to the original fandom: Star wars. But these poor saps didn't know what they were in for. We know exactly how much some of you obsess over Star Wars, so we couldn't just make this a pushover and have a cluster at the top. We had to separate the best from the rest. And the stars definitely shone bright tonight! There were four teams clustered at the top, clearly away from the rest of the pack. Salacious Bitches took home third place this week. JAR JAR MUST DIE made a big comeback in the second half to jump into second

Never Been So Much Anger
EricBurch

It's starting, finally, to get a little chilly this week here in Columbus. But it's shopping season now with the holidays, so we're seeing plenty at Fado Irish Pub. But this week, it was all about the music round. Personally, I knew going in this would be one of my favorite music rounds I've ever had. But I never knew I'd have this much backlash. I have never come close to having that many people complaining about a round before. That's all anyone talked about all night long, and I got a plethora of comments after the quiz as well. Shittyflute, kudos. You're doing your job. It came down to two again this week. Fun Buns and Mud Guns made it to the tiebreaker for

Buckeye Strong
EricBurch

So it was a weird day in Columbus. To say the least. But it was nice to take our minds off of things a bit here at Fado Irish Pub. You never think it can happen to you until it does. And The Ohio State University is so huge, everyone knows someone that's on campus every day. So it sets the panic level up to ten all around the metro area when you have something happen like it did today. All I can hope is that some good comes of this, eventually. I hope that the university can come together and come back stronger. We did still have a quiz tonight! Light on teams, but it was a battle. Sarah's Boy Toys kept their tradition up of losing in tiebreakers, taking second
