Chanel No. 9?
Danielle

  Spring has finally fallen into full swing and our quizzes now start when the sun is still high in the sky, but Jack is still behind the bar so we’re still in the same boat really. A very drunk, gay boat.  We began out post St. Patty’s Day quiz off with a few witty jokes and banter from the crowd, but as the night went on, and drinks flowed heavier, and ya’ll got damn rowdy. I love the O’Henrys crew because you don’t hold back and always have something to say about it. We have a damn good time together and play this quiz quiet properly. With a good constant rivalry between, Trivial Hirsuits, Haus of Bear, Mommy

Yanking Your Daisy Chain
Shannon

The seven teams that gathered at O'Henry's for last night's pub quiz, or maybe just to hear Jack say weird shit. Either way, it got a bunch of folks in the door, and I got to read a bunch of nonsense into a microphone and give away some boner beers and bar tabs, so I think we all won, in the end. The game had a pretty substantial spread, but there were several teams who stayed close throughout. With Haus of Bear & The Man Himself united again for the first time in a while, though, I knew everyone else faced a formidable challenge. The Bear said he was sure he'd made at least a thousand paper cranes in his lifetime, but that he was still waiting

The Sounding of the Alarm
Shannon

What a doozy, y'all! As always, I was afraid I'd be quizzing to a nearly empty house right up until moments before the thing was scheduled to start, and then there you all were, shining and wonderful, just in the nick of time. It should not go without mention, though, that we did have a special guest, last night, and she was on time, too. Early, even! Our marvelous and dislocated friend Jana, of team Mommy Drinks Because You Cry was back to join us, reminding me with her charming quips (and adorable dimples) why we miss her so. A new guy who called himself Ducky Two Fucks (for some reason) was there and trying the event on for size,

Hormusement
Shannon

As I sit, at long last, to write about the events of Monday evening, I hope that you all will forgive me for its delayed completion. It's hard to believe that two days have passed since then, and yet it seems a month ago now that I viewed all of your visages. Except in the photos I took this week. A couple of which I probably owe someone an apology for. Oof. Sorry about those...  I could, and might even be contractually obligated to, mention that there were 5 teams at O'Henry's for the quiz, that The Trivial Hirsuits won the hell out of the game. I could also tell you about how Queen P. knew (and I do mean knew) enough to tell us, without

Percolating: It's Not Just For Coffee Anymore!
Shannon

After 5 weeks on top, even the most enduring stallion would be ready for a change of position, so all eyes were on the T-Birds last night, waiting to see if they could maintain their ...direction. As the game progressed, I kept double-checking the score sheet, hardly believing how close the scores stayed the whole time. When we reached the final round with only 7 points separating the highest and lowest-scoring teams, and nary a joker yet used, it was absolutely anyone's game. The DKs hadn't been around for a while, so I don't think anyone really expected that they were going to sweep in and upset the reigning champions. Even going

Can you point Me in the Right Direction of the Cervix
Danielle

Considering I got to see most of your beautiful faces twice this past week, I think I’m the lucky one. Then again ya’ll got to play 2 quizzes this week, and see me host twice. So I guess we are all winners in this game of life. Either way, it’s been a fun, long week of quizzing, hosting, and being a diva.  Even with the Saturday night debauchery, all of our regulars came out to battle for the gold. T-Birds made their claim to first once again. They started out strong and never wavered. Haus of Bear &TMH did their best to beat them, but they didn’t quite make it. Now although these two were team mates on Saturday night,

Going To Your Flappy Place
Shannon

Four fancy teams showed up to fight it out last night, so it was a face off between The T-Birds, Mommy Drinks Because You Cry, Haus of Bear & The Man Himself, and Cerebral Vortex that ended, again, with The T-Birds on top and Mommy Drinks just baaaaarely behind them. Based on the look I saw in the eye of Mommy Drinks, I would venture to say that it's extremely unlikely that it will go down the same way next week. I think they're not having it, and we all know that ultimately, no matter what, The Queen (Pineapple) gets what she wants. For now, though, congratulations are due to the monochromatic men with the

Measuring the Length of Your Large Intestine: A Practical Guide
Shannon

Just when I was asking Jack what we'd do if we only had two teams present to play, all the rest of y'all dragged your not-quite-fashionably lagging butts in the door and, suddenly, it was a 7-team game.    Lucky for us, this lot included the (now 3-time) champion T-Birds, Haus of Barren Vixen (so cleverly named in the absence of The Bear), Chris Oaks, another solo player who joins us on the semi-regular,  a two-person version of The Raspberry Berets, some guys who walked in and joined us starting at round 3, The O-Town Boys (Men), Mommy Drinks Because You Cry

When Mom is Away the Kids Will Play
Danielle

Since our wonderful O’Henrys matriarch was off doing her civic duty as a women and marching in D.C.; I was able to jump into the shenanigans that is Monday Night Pub quizzing. It’s always a pleasure to sub here, and last night y'all brought the thunder. With 9 teams that showed up, we were a full house. T-Birds made an astounding leap in the end, finally passing Haus of Bear &TMH. Both Haus and Heathers Whores were battling for first all night. Until in the last round where T-Birds flexed their brain muscles and pushed out some serious African Political and super carrier knowledge for the win.

No Mention of That One Guy
Shannon

Our Pub Quiz was attended by four teams fulla folks last night, including some we haven't seen in a while, and one team that, after almost two years of consistently playing under the same name, upped the ante a little bit and changed their moniker to something a bit more adult. And maybe a bit more accurate. So, it was The Trivial Hirsuits, The T Birds, The Long Distance Lovers, and... Mommy Fucks Cuz UR Hard at our little event, and this is how it all went down.  In Round 4, I inquired about what prosthetic was used by Leo Fender, Peter Falk, and Sammy Davis Jr.. The first person to comment

Ashamed Mary
Shannon

While the rest of Asheville still cowered in their domiciles from the three inches of snow that happened three days ago, four teams of brave adventurers arrived, to my relief and delight, at O'Henry's just in time to play a little pub quiz.  As many of you know, for a long time now there have been certain questions that are declared to be higher stakes than others, on account of the fact that getting them wrong could lead to the revocation of one's gay card. I sometimes guess which questions those might be, but it's you, dear players, who really make this determination. Tonight happened to be a really good night for these kinds of questions, though, and

Viva La Quizmistress!
Shannon

Our first quiz of the new year brought seven teams to the fray, as well as Jack's triumphant return. In the spirit of turning over a new leaf for the new year, though, he respectfully avoided mouthing off until... ...Until I said the first two words of the actual quiz. Yep. Round 1, question 1 started with a question about a certain struggling child actor, whose name just barely escaped my lips before our beloved bartender shouted "Kirk Cameron can suck my penis!" immediately followed by some canary from The T -Birds in the peanut gallery saying "He already did! Like 3 times! I filmed it! It's the new trilogy!" So that was how we rang in the new year, and added

A Cathartic Dip in a Prurient Pool
Shannon

The folks who survived family Christmases made it, bedraggled though they were, into O'Henry's last night for a cathartic dip in our prurient pool, assuring that any piety they'd accidentally collected over the weekend was washed away anew in a game with an astoundingly vast point spread. Three of our teams (The Trivial Hirsuits, Mommy Drinks Because You Cry, and Haus of Bear & The Man Himself & Hopsing) were back to uphold their respective (if not respectable) reputations and titles, and the other two, (JT and Whitzlefuck) were there visiting, to represent the excellence of Florida public school education.

<3 Wins!
Shannon

For weeks now I've been saying "Come back next Monday, tell everyone you know, bring your friends..." and last night you finally did it, darlings! All four teams were made up of a beautiful melange of regular players and new ones, which changed the game, and kept things interesting and fun.    The T-Birds were feeling savvy and looking fly, and they weren't wrong for being confident; they stayed close to the other teams all night and got a few right answers that nobody else got. I think it surprised us all when they were in 4th at the end of the game. And I didn't even deduct any points for the answer "Taylor Swift," or for That

A Perfectly Hexagon-Shaped Storm
Shannon

We had seven teams and several new faces at the quiz last night, which was delightful and made things especially interesting. I hope all the first-timers were charmed, and not mortified, by all of our weekly traditions. There were a couple of guys from New Mexico that showed up, and one of them told me, almost immediately, that I was the most convincing drag queen that he'd ever seen. I am not currently convinced that he was kidding, and I can't quite decide whether to be flattered or to start pulling back on the eyeshadow from now on. In the moment, though, it seemed to bolster my quizmistress mojo so I got everyone settled in and up to speed and away we went. Beast Mode,

"... That All Men Are Created Equal. (That's What She Said.)"
Shannon

I only caught the glimmer of fast-moving leather in the rain as the T-Birds (as I lovingly like to call them) sped off and away upon my arrival at O'Henry's last night. Rumor has it they were chasing that pretty blonde boy, so how can I blame them? Nonetheless, it was a pity to see them go, and I hope they'll get their priorties str-- er... reprioritized next week and stick around. We, were, however, fortunate enough to have three teams in the house, brave enough to face the rain and come out to play. In a classic match comprised exclusively of some of the dearest and most beloved regulars, we saw a battle between Mommy Drinks Because You Cry, Haus of
