I Like to Louvre Louvre It
Regan Like Keegan

I was telling Scorekeeper Ian about this last night, but I studied French for 6 years. And, not to toot my own horn, but I was pretty good at it. And I LOVED it. I loved it so much that I was planning on being a French double major in college. Then a French double minor. Then I decided that I didn't really like the way my school did its modern language program and just kind of went, "Eh." That being said, I feel like an asshole when I read French things over the mic. I mean I try not to be over-the-top with my pronunciations, but I find that any kind of French intention sounds vaguely douchey. So last night's round on the Louvre was definitely filling my douche quota. The

C-c-c-c-COMBO BREAKER
Regan Like Keegan

And by combo breaker I mean tie breaker. When I said that you guys had to break the 3-way tie for second place, I was being serious. I truly was exasperated because we've had ties for the past...3 weeks? I was going to use ALL my tie breaker questions! Then you decided to do me one better.  Rather than giving me a tie where I would have to use tie breaker questions, you instead decided to have a 2-way tie for 1st place. When that happens I have to do not just one tie-breaker question, but a whole damn sudden death round. Why are you all the way you are? No wait I mean that in the most loving way possible, but you guys get what I mean! Of course

Truly the Most Beautiful Chocolate Cake
Regan Like Keegan

So I have a Facebook page for our lovely venue (which, if you're not following already you should follow now!). Every week, that's where I post our blog and your answers for the week and information regarding themed quizzes and Quiz for a Cause. I also like to post the stats each week from Geek in Review. Geek in Review is hosted on the main Geeks Who Drink page and compared regions to each other, venues to each other, and teams across the nation and across all days of quizzing. I like being able to show my teams how they rank against the rest of New York and the rest of the country. We usually do admirably, but nothing too impressive, especially compared to the markets in Houston

Will I Ever Post a Blog on Tuesday?
Regan Like Keegan

Among the many things I like about Taproom (the bartenders, the fries, the drink selection, the crowd, its convenient location just to name a few!), one of the things I like the best is the time that we start our quiz. 7:30. It's a nice time because it's not too far after the work day that you need a way to fill your time. For me, that's especially important because I come to Taproom from my office which is only a few blocks away! If our quiz started later, I would have a very hard time finding things to do as I become the only person in the office. I also like that, because quiz starts at 7:30, we are supposed to finish around 9:30. (We're going to ignore the fact

The Boys Are Back in Town...Again
Regan Like Keegan

This week was a very special week at Taproom 307 and, indeed, at Geeks Who Drink as a whole. Geeks Who Drink decided to have a country-wide Quiz for a Cause (check out the tab if you're unfamiliar with our awesome non-profit arm!) to benefit Planned Parenthood! For this entire week, select venues that host Geeks Who Drink have/will be raising money to go towards supporting such a great cause. Last night was my and Taproom 307's turn. I was a little nervous but excited going into it. I've never hosted a Quiz for a Cause and I was excited that my first one was going to be for a cause that's important to me. I was excited to share it with quizzers I see every single week. But

Ode to a Scorekeeper
Regan Like Keegan

Before I started hosting at our dear Taproom 307 this past January, I was a substitute Quiz Master. This meant that I went wherever the wind would take me to host, or else that I'd just pick up quizzes whenever a regular QM couldn't show up/didn't want to see all your pretty faces. This was definitely cool because it let me host at a myriad of different venues all over the city and I got to meet a ton of cool people. The other perk was that I got to regularly scorekeep. Scorekeeping generally isn't a hard job. You don't need to prepare the quiz, you don't need to get on the mic, you don't really have to deal with the ire of the teams, and you usually still get to keep that sweet,

What That Thang Do, Taproom?
Emily

Holy moly, there were at lot of people ready to be the next top quizzers at Taproom last night, but only one team could leave with the grand prize. The quiz was chock full of Taylor Swift references, questionable bonus questions, and just so so many ready and eager participants. Favorite rounds of the night included a round on Norse Mythology and dead languages, and a toe-tapping round on Movie Musicals. Who knew Trolls was a musical? This Quizmaster definitely missed that memo.  Honorable mention for fantastic quiz names of the evening goes to the pickers of low-hanging fruit Fap Room 307 as well as team No Flips Just Fists.

How Long Until People Get Tired of Me Saying How Much I Love Trivia
Regan Like Keegan

So I haven't talked much about my day job on this blog. It's a pretty cool gig - I work for a UK based publisher that's just getting started in the US. It's just my boss and I in the US for the moment, but we're surrounded by a couple of other young-ish publishers that are sister parts of our main company. It's a fun, "start-up" feel in my office, which lends to such lucky amenities as private phone booths, standing desks, and beer taps in our kitchen. The start-up feel also makes it feel more like I can talk to everyone in my office because we're all doing a little bit of everything rather than being separated by department (though that might just be because of our large office

Tuesdays Are My Fave
Regan Like Keegan

So since I wasn't with you guys last week because of that dastardly snowstorm that made it so I didn't have to leave my bed for 24 hours, I never got to express to you guys how impressed I am with you! I was waiting to hear whether or not quiz would be cancelled last week when I found out that apparently SOME of you called in to see if quiz was still going on and THAT is the very reason they decided to run it last week. You guys are so dedicated! A little bit crazy, but dedicated nonetheless. I have to tell you guys, it makes me really happy when I see the same teams coming back week after week. I mean I was hella worried when I first started that I would drive teams away,

How Stella Lost Her Groove Again
Vaughn

First time in a while that I’ve hosted at Tap Room 307.  It was an EVERYBODY snow day in the big apple, Stella swooped into town and caused quite a few shuffles.  I appreciate the opportunity and Regan will be back next week to crush it as usual.  There was definitely a ton of competition in the room.   Despite the adverse weather there were still 19 teams!!!! On some nights the questions seem easy and the teams seem like rocket surgeons.  Some nights the questions seem like Chinese arithmetic and no team brought their abacus.  Last night was a definitely blend of both.  Scores were all over the place all

  GUYS, I'm hella tired. I've been awake since 4 this morning. I'm gonna have to be awake until like midnight tonight. Sure, this was all of my own doing and planning and I wouldn't change any of it if I had the chance, but I just wanna COMPLAIN. Because this work day has been DRAGGING and I just want to be eating or in my bed. But that isn't an option right now UNFORTUNATELY. Ok so my favorite team name from last night was definitely Obama's Wire Taproom 307, who also managed to take 2nd place last night after a tie breaker. They beat out Fake Booze, who took home 3rd place. Twinnage and Friend

*insert meme describing the feeling of enjoying the weather while contemplating our planet's untimely demise due to global warming*
Regan Like Keegan

It's 70 degrees in New York today. 70 degrees. Fahrenheit (Although, to be fair, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be any better if it were in Celcius BUT I'M TRYING TO MAKE A POINT, YOU GUYS). I wore a rain jacket to work today and I don't even think I really needed that (I mean apart from the rain that we're expecting, but meh). IT'S SUPPOSED TO SNOW ON FRIDAY (or at least it was when I checked the weather this morning. My weather app no longer has a little snowflake on it. But again MAKING A POINT). Like I get it, "Woo hoo look at all this warm weather let's go play outside let's enjoy the fact that the air no longer makes my face hurt." I would enjoy this weather

We Should Have a Karaoke Night
Regan Like Keegan

All right, my dudes, this blog is going to be quick because I'm running late today. Last night was fun! You guys were so nice to me in my hour of need because I couldn't yell! I appreciated that you shushed each other and that you wished me well as you were leaving. I'm not sure that the yelling at each other needed to happen, but it did amuse me. You had a very easy first audio round, which I guess made up for the really hard second audio round. Mission Impossible, amirite? But you guys pulled it out and so many of you stuck with me. I hope you guys liked talking about rocks and Morocco and nerds. I'm glad that MOST of you got your Sharpie answer. Shout out

So I've been rereading A Series of Unfortunate Events lately, and last night I finished The Hostile Hospital. I'm not sure how many of you have read the books before (or I guess have now seen the Netflix series), but the youngest protagonist, Sunny, is a baby. She does not speak in full English, so her words and phrases are always translated either by her siblings or by Lemony Snicket in his narration. The fun of this is that Sunny often make different allusions or references that have something to do with what she's trying to say. Or, in the case of the title of this blog, it's something absurd that a baby definitely wouldn't be able to say. The blog title today

This Blog is Highly Overrated. Sad!
Regan Like Keegan

Is anyone else exhausted? Because I am EXHAUSTED. Tuesday nights are a good night for me because we have an early quiz and I generally get to go home early. Last night, even though I stayed a little longer than usual, I still got home relatively early and went to bed early. Yet I found myself barely able to drag myself out of bed this morning. I am still so tired. I think it's just been the state of the world this week. I couldn't get online without bracing myself to see yet another shitty piece of news, another thing that made me shake my anger and disgust and frustration. I found myself wondering if quiz last night would be interrupted by some other awful thing. But
