I Can Quiz Clearly Now the Excrement is Gone...
TanookiSuitandTie

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness. We are back! Draft Station suffered an unfortunate blow at the hands of the ART construction project, causing their establishment to overflow with… unpleasantness. :/ We were gone for a good two weeks and I truly thought that was going to mess up my attendance for a while because how would anyone know when Draft Station was to reopen? Perhaps it was the good ol’ email list that I assume everyone is subscribed to (right? RIGHT??) that put the good word out that quiz was alive again (and right after Easter no less, how symbolic!). In any case, it's good to be back and I really missed hosting for all my lovely teams,

Lousy Smarch Weather...
TanookiSuitandTie

Oh, hello there! I didn't see you come in, you surprised me. Welcome to this little blog of mine. It's my tiny fraction of the internet where I get to talk at moderate length about the joyous occasion known as Geeks Who Drink quizzes. So make yourself at home, won't you? My attendance is back up! Woo! Good. You all had me worrying there for a bit. Figured I'd done gone saying something stupid. It certainly wouldn't be the first time I'd do something like that. But in either case, I'm glad to see you all back in my loving arms once again, mon cher. Also, keep this presence going and bolster it for next week as we have our lovely Quiz for a Cause on April 3, raising

Gentle Curtis and the Ticklish Crew
TanookiSuitandTie

You've done well to reach this point. Many a quizzer has tried and unfortunately failed to make it this far, but you, intrepid one, have made it to my blog and for that, I commend you. Commendations aside, I had a great night hosting for everybody, even then though some perfect storm of being in between UNM’s and the public school system's spring break did something weird to my attendance. No matter, I'm sure things will perk back up next week. The construction for ART did pop back up in front of Draftstation as well, denying us the ability to make a left turn into the parking lot. I say, nuts to that, I'm turning left and have been for as long as this

Tongued Tied, Mush Mouthed Ding Dong
TanookiSuitandTie

And a very happy Monday to you all! The week is already proving to be strange, what with our collective minor time traveling and all. I had gotten so used to it being pitch black outside by the time I was setting up shop. Also, the patio is open again! None of my quizzers used it tonight per se, but it is open, which means more seating for more quizzers! Huzzah! Bring on the summer! You can keep your allergens and sunburns though, I don't want those, Spring and Summer. Those you can have forever. I was in a very rambling, tongue twisted mood tonight, especially when I was plugging my upcoming QFAC on APRIL THIRD FOR UNM4NEPAL. But guess what? I initially said

TanookiSuitandTie

Draft Station! What's up everybody? It's Monday night and I'm ready to get quizzical. Somewhat of a reduced crowd tonight but that's okay, I wasn’t in much of a jokey, make-a-comment-y mood myself. My delivery was basically just straightforward and a bit rigid. Not sure why, I just didn't have it in me to make jokes that much. Even when the feeling arose to say something, I stopped it dead in its tracks. Kind of an off night for me, I guess you could say. Those are bound to happen I suppose. But I didn't not have fun! I didn't deliver things like a zombie either, I just didn't interject my inner thoughts as much tonight as I normally do. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

TanookiSuitandTie

What's up everyone? Oh, you know, just had another excellent quiz with 13 teams! No biggie! I'm not really sure how 13 teams can for into itty bitty ol’ Draft Station, but keep it coming. You all are such great supporters of GWD and the Draft Station, it's great seeing you all week after week. I never tire of it. Try me. It's nice to know that, walking in Cupcake’s shadow, Draft Station's turn out hasn't skipped a beat. Perhaps a holiday season slump, but honestly that's to be expected. Just I love you guys, okay? Okay. Let's keep that momentum going for April 3 (I might have misspoke and said April 4 over the mic, oops) for our upcoming Quiz for

TanookiSuitandTie

Bloggity blog! Hello all and welcome to it. We had yet another stellar night last night wherein seats were filled and Draft Station staff was happy and busy! I even heard things like “gotta get here early now to get good seats”! Like it's a freaking movie premiere or something. *blush* I love you guys too. But no, I mustn't let it go to my head. I mustn't. This is even my final form. I'm still stuck with my crappy good-for-nothing microphone which WILL BE REPLACED by its far more expensive and much better quality counterpart by next week. I should have that bad boy by Feb 24. As quizzers might not really care about that, I very much do. I have had

Moses, the Red Sea and the Great Period of Giza
TanookiSuitandTie

Draft Station! Man, is it good to see you! And there's a lot of you to see, holy crap! You guys came out in droves tonight. I'm fairly certain every last one of my regular teams was there, with essentially the full roster of people regularly on said teams. Madness! There was that awkward period at the beginning where a few teams didn't have a place to sit. I always worry they're gonna cave and walk out the door, but, man, when my quizzers come to play they come to stay. Muscle out some family of three enjoying their nachos! Kick out the guy who had a few too many! These quizzers need seats! It will be nice once the weather improves that way the patio will be

Round 5? What Round 5?
TanookiSuitandTie

Draft Station! It's me again! Surprised? Of course not, I'm your Quizmaster! Now that the Super Bowl is over, you're left with no choice but to revel in some eloquently crafted quiz. Not to say that every last one of you cares about that sort of thing, I certainly don't. But I do know that MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL was interfering with my vibe for the last several months. Now it is the Geeks’ time to rise up! I had a mighty nice selection of loyal teams with some fresh faces peppered in the mix as well. That's what I love to see! New initiates to the Church of Geek brought in by faithful high priests and priestesses. It pleases the almighty Quizbot thusly.

The Adventures of Pete and Repeat
TanookiSuitandTie

What up, quizlets? I'm not sure how it's almost the end of January, but if time wants to just fly by for the next four years, I’d have no complaints. But time could slow down while I'm hosting with you guys, my darlings. ART construction just keeps getting more obnoxious as well. I can't wait for that to be over with. There's currently a no left turn sign as I need to turn left into Draft Station. Welp, let's just say I appreciate the suggestion, sign, but I won't heed your advice today. Or next week. Or the week after that, so long as making a left turn is a viable maneuver. Once the road is all ripped up and janky, then we'll talk, sign, mkay?

Can't Spell Chipotle Without E. Coli!
TanookiSuitandTie

Here we are once again with another installment of Geeks Who Drink at ye olde Draft Station! Quite a few new faces tonight which is always a good thing and a ton of my regulars as well which always warms my cockles. (Look, I'm gonna be honest with you all. I'm not sure what the cockles are, I only said it to be awkward. Full disclosure.) I learned tonight that the lovely Draft Station staff has been tucking away a TON, and I mean a TON of answer packets and pencils from years past. They have so many classic packets you guys! So much blank space for activities, and you know, being able to write down the bonus question in larger than 12 point handwritten font.

Obscenities and Pleasantries
TanookiSuitandTie

Good Monday evening to you all! And what an uncharacteristically rainy Monday we've had. I mean when they say it'll rain, New Mexicans think we'll only be getting a ten minute stint and then nothing for a month and a half. That's just how desert life be, yo. But it has seriously been raining for the last two days non stop. Definitely need the precipitation, but this is something most unusual. Combine that with the bizarre traffic patterns laid out for Albuquerque's finest transportation system (HEAVY SARCASM), and it's a small wonder I had the turnout that I did. I love you guys, you're easily the best crowd of quizzers a boy could hope for.

What's up, Draft Station? So good to see everybody last night! It was a nicely packed house, perfect for quizzing. My loyal teams seem to be back in town from whatever vacations they thought were more important than coming to quiz (uh, WRONG!!) and all is back in alignment. Lots of peeps, lots of teams, happy Draft Station staff. All is well. Also, I'm not sure if this has become abundantly clear or not, but I'm now the official Quizmaster for Draft Station! Yup, I'm no longer long term subbing for Jessi, it’s all mine, suckas! (Perhaps don't call the people you want sticking around “suckas”...hmmm…) But yeah! I hope you all weren't

Five Comes After Eight, Didn't You Know?
TanookiSuitandTie

Hey there citizens of the year 2017! We made it! Just when we thought the-year-that-won't-be-named wouldn't end, it did. Now, I hate to be a pessimist, but there is literally no guarantee that 2017 will be any better, but we can hope, right? Right. Well, I did receive a lonely sign that this will be be better and that was all of you guys packing the freaking house at the Draft Station! I heard words kicked around like “fire code” and “more chairs” and “Graig is awesome”. Pretty sure that last thing was said more than anything else. But yeah, we had a “full af” venue (as you kids would say) and I couldn't have been

TanookiSuitandTie

What's happening everybody? Well, we all seem to be in a bit of a post-Holiday slump, don't we? Far too much holly jolly stimuli for one week, eh? I get that, I totally do. Not counting the people constantly screaming at the football squadron on the television, things were quite subdued tonight with only five teams, but I too was a bit exhausty-pants so playing a small room was perfect for my brain. ...So here’s where I took a few hours break from writing this blog entry and in that time, Carrie Fisher has passed away. I mean, goddamn 2016 I dunno what your deal is and I know you're just an arbitrary measurement of time, but you sure messed things up.

Hey, so that was unceremonious, eh? Not that I'm one to throw a big blowout bonanza whatever but the ending of our night last night left much to be desired, right? Say like not getting the impending feeling of sewage oozing out of whatever drains and we had to quiz harder and faster than we've ever quizzed in our lives, myself included. You see, something went wrong with the plumbing right before round 8 and the staff worked quickly and wonderfully to inform everyone of what was going on and that we had to evacuate right stat pronto, but only until round 8 was completed.
