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

I'm Still Recovering
Regan Like Keegan

Holy. Shit. You guys. We had 33 teams show up last night. 33 TEAMS. I'm sorry, did you hear me? THIRTY. THREE. And of those 33 teams, we had a retention rate of an amazing 30 teams. Let me put this in perspective for you. When I used to scorekeep at Taproom, the highest turn-out I'd seen was 28 teams. That 28 teams was (according to the blogs) QM Anne's personal record. She was at Taproom for 6 months. Let me put it in perspective again. For a venue to get a scorekeeper, you have to have 18 teams show up 3 weeks in a row. With 33 teams last night, we were only 3 teams away from doubling that quota. Let me put it in perspective AGAIN. Yasmine,

Apparently I Don't Know How to Pronounce Babka
Regan Like Keegan

Last night was my first night as the new regular Quizmaster here at Tap Room. I was a scorekeeper here several times before and, evidently, I couldn't get enough of the wonderful craziness that is Tuesday nights at Tap Room.  And let me tell you, I have been going a little bit crazy over the past couple of days. First, my day job has been a little nuts with meetings and stuff. Plus, I was starting here this week, I'm starting at a new venue next week, AND I'm hosting the regional Gilmore Girls quiz on Thursday! (WHICH YOU SHOULD ALL COME TO) On top of all that, I nearly didn't have a scorekeeper last night due to a last minute illness.

Farewell My Fine Feathered Friends
Anne

Well that's a wrap on this old broad. As I head off to greener pastures, I want to say "Thank You" one last time to all of you gorgeous human beings who come out to play quiz every Tuesday like it's your gosh-dang nine-to-five job. You are the real heroes. Last night was a blast. Y'all PACKED THE HOUSE with a personal record of 27 teams. We quizzed on Pakistan, fine art history, heists, dead animals, and pop-culture doctors. Scores were high and the race was tight. The energy was amazing and there was no tie at the end! Hallelujah for that! Third place went home with Tap Room regs Tardy To The Party, second place was awarded to The Game Done Changed, and first

New Year New Youse Guys
Anne

A quiet night on the ranch last night, as many teams seemed to have suffered enough in their first day back in the office after a long holiday break. Thank you to everyone who made it all the way through the day without giving up - you are the real heroes. And your reward? A whole quiz of vaguely George Michael-y rounds. You're welcome. I hope to the quiz gods that all of your resolutions are strong and you become the person you want to be this year. No holding back! Stay grounded! Go crazy! Get your shit together! Learn to cook! Quit eating so much! Whatever! Live your truth!

Well Hello There
Anne

I was noooooot expecting such a crowd last night, what with it being the the very quickly dwindling days of this shit-for-days-year. I suspected y'all'ed be out of town enjoying the company of your families or the glow of a warm fire or maybe just at home in your PJs finally watching Westworld.  But what a wonderful surprise it was to see a rousing 25 teams turn out for beer and tots and quiz. We quizzed on the year's events, being gross and sick, and Spikes, Sicily, breakups, and 'splody movies.And for a second week in a row we ended our game play with a tie for first place. So, after another rousing tie breaker, third place was awarded to Tardy To The Party,

Twas the week before Christmas, when all through midtownAll the creatures were stirring, wrapped tight in goose down.The nerds all arrived at the Taproom with care,In hopes that St Geeks-Who-Drink soon would be there.The quizzers were nestled all snug in their booths,While visions of tater-tots smooshed in their tooths.With I in the corner and Ray at the tapYou all wondered why you even deal with my crap.When out of the speakers there arose such a clatter,I sprang from the chair to see what was the matter.Away to the volume button I flew like a flash,Turned down the microphone

Book Your Holiday Party At Tap Room

No really, do it. They are so wonderful. And while you're at it - make it a Geeks Who Drink private event. I can come host for you! It will be super fun! Speaking of holidays, we had a particularly festive night of quizzing on our hands this week. We had a round on on reindeer and a round on celeb-packed nativity scene. We also quizzed on things that are more or less than 12, smelly fowl, and had a fun round involving spelling questions. Knocking Bernando right out of the running, Team GIZ snatched up third place. Second place went home with Four Horsemen, and first place was awarded to Hoof-Hearted. Thanks to everyone who came out to

Anne

Welcome to December, you guys. You can officially listen to Christmas music without catching flack from your friends and family. You can officially start feeling terrible about your diet and inadequate about your gift giving abilities. The holidays sure are wonderful, aren't they? Twenty three teams took refuge from the Holiday Mayhem last night, and what a great quiz we did have. We quizzed on Sir Isaac Newton, law stuff, Scrooges, and TV Doctors and had a particularly fun round on super long novels most of you had never read. But you had heard of them, and that was sort of the point. We even had a round on music from artists celebrating birthdays in December,
