Thanks for All the Team Name Explanations
theshrew

No, that movie was not Brokeback Mountain. I know, I know, you were just trying to be funny. But man, that's dark. And if you're wondering which one of the “Be Like Bill”s someone guessed Brokeback Mountain for, the answer is that it doesn't matter. It's sad, no matter which one. I cried a little inside. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: Pro tip to Ben's team.

Katherine (also responds to Kat) has been a geek who drinks since before she knew it was a thing to be. You'll find her subbing and quiz-master-ing 'round the port of Denver...other interests include every outdoor sport going, and community theatre. If you've played both Kate and Petruchio, you can't help having a nickname like theshrew. On happier notes, her horse Sparky (pictured) is finally with her in CO, which makes her a much happier and more easygoing quizmistress. Lucky you.

Birthdays are Awesome
theshrew

I haven't seen y'all in two weeks so I don't know what's gone down, but clearly you are still here on a Saturday night, so that's good. Lovely to have the “library” join us tonight, gave me a chance to figure out how sound works in there plus add massively to our team count since it was chock full of birthday celebrators (Happy Birthday, Dakota!).

Darcy, it's not you, it's me..
DanielCostie

Holy crap! There was a metric shit ton of teams last night at Darcy’s. I didn’t realize that this neighborhood rolled so deep. We had some great play by some great minds. Two teams had been taking a six year hiatus from pub quiz but chose tonight, of all nights, to pull those jerseys down from the rafters, pull a Michael Jordan, and wax trivial with Mr. Daniel Paul Costie. They must’ve known that I would be having a cameo here at Darcy’s. People come from miles around just to study my technique. This paragraph is brought to you by the word ‘ego.’   Some of the better team names also topped the leaderboard. Funny and smart? You guys are

This Title Rhymes with "-itch"
theshrew

I was feeling like a nice person tonight, plus I didn't have Viva la Vida nearly as stuck in my head as I did last week, so I didn't purposely inflict any annoying songs on you. Anything that you still can't cope with is therefore your own problem (to paraphrase Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, mostly paraphrasing because I don't have the energy to walk over to the bookshelf and see whether I've got the quote right).

It's the first day of the rest of your life. And of 2016. But really it's just important that this is the first quiz of the year, and you were here for it. That'll be something to look back on as the year rolls on. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: Ben's family continues to namecheck Ben in their team name. I find it funny.

The Last Darcy's Pub Quiz of 2015

It's beginning to look lot like a Darcy's Geeks Who Drink quiz night. Did you think I was going to say something else? Ah yes, fooled you. That may happen a lot in this blog.

Happy Holidays from Darcy's!
SParker

After a hiatus from hosting and a lengthy stint at Lowry Beer Garden, I was happy to return to the GWD main stage at Darcy’s. With a stiff Whiskey diet and a plethora of holiday sweaters, who wouldn’t be ready for a great Saturday night? 12 teams duked it out in a close, holiday ridden quiz. Rich musicians stumped us (how was Adele not on that list?) and Jewish musicians were confused for gentiles. Rich Little provided some reassuring success for most teams. Obviously Bill Clinton would talk about interns. And although I didn’t need to know that Regan was a C-Section, something about calling vaginal labor “dropping out” is the funniest thing I’ve

There isn't much more that you need to know other than that I'm totally awesome.

I hail from the lovely city of Rio Rancho in New Mexico and have spent the last four years soaking in the joy of the east coast in New York and Boston. (Go Yankees!)

I now live in Denver. I teach middle school math, which sounds lame, but is honestly the one of the funnest jobs you can have (and yeah, I used the word funnest). I'm quickly becoming an established Denverite, most noticeably in my development of an affinity for good beer and bike riding.

If I can promise you anything from my quiz, it's that you'll hear some great music and most assuredly see or hear something surprising.

Happy Quiz-Giving
theshrew

Oh hai! Yes we do have pub quiz Thanksgiving weekend! And yes all of you were still in town. And apparently tired enough of your relatives to want to get to Darcy's on a Saturday night. Or maybe your relatives are awesome so you brought them with you, and you just didn't feel like cooking, or eating more turkey, or whatever. We're glad you're here, whatever the reason.

Darcy's for the Holidays
theshrew

  Welcome to Darcy's Bistro & Pub! It was a fine night. Just 11 degrees last night, maybe 20 tonight so that felt balmy in comparison. And clearly all of you are in the “I have to cook all week for t-day and I just don't wanna cook this weekend” mode that I've been in for a week already. Keep that rolling for next week, and make sure you come for the holiday weekend for a break from turkey. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to:

You Guys Should Have Pro Shirts Made
Ed

     Hey gang, this was my first time subbing at Darcy’s and on a Saturday, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m used to mid-week escapers, those who seem to need the break of the week with a spot of debauchery and booze, quiz style.  I was thinking Saturday was going to be a pro scene, and I was not wrong.  Darcy’s is a great place for a quiet meal and great Guinness, and getting there early, the place was completely devoid of quizzer.  8:15 rolled around and -boom- you guys not only slid in quickly, but secured great seats and got your “usual” started.  Very impressive, folks, this is how big leagues do it.
[ ...more... ]

     That there is the St. Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren, Belgium, makers of some of the best beer in the world - so yeah, they deserve a leap.

     I'll travel for all passions I follow, and I'll line up early.

     I grew up always liking to read out loud, so perhaps that's what drew me to GWD.

     Have an elastic mind and you'll survive, barely.

Wednesday Nights, 8pm to 10pm, Green Valley Ranch Beer Garden.

I Get It... I'm Old...
MarthaZapata

Things I'm tired of hearing being a 31 year old single women (btw, most of these have been said to me in the last 2 weeks and mainly by strangers)... in no particular order: 1. Eventually you'll find the right man and settle down and have children : Who says I want children or a man even, and also 30 does not equal spinster.2. You say you don't know if you want kids but when you (insert any of the following - meet the right person, get older, see other people having kids) then you will change your mind : I won't even begin to go into what's wrong with any of these generalized statements.3. What do you mean you don't like kids? : Uh, never

Sportsball vs. Quiz
theshrew

Ah, another beautiful night here at Darcy's. You guys are so committed and dedicated, both to your sportsball and your quiz. At least I didn't hear anybody using the F-word, loudly, audible to the entire restaurant, about quiz. Either you have your priorities straight, or you're able to understand what's actually important in life. That guy had a bad night, and maybe he should've played quiz instead. Just sayin'.

How Not to Win at Quiz…
MarthaZapata

I appreciate teaching moments in life. I mean how else are we supposed to evolve as people? So I take any opportunity as a teaching moment. I love all our regular teams here at Darcy’s, and what I love the most about them is that whenever an oddball team shows up and tries to threw a wrench into our lovely Saturday nights together I don’t have to do shit about it. My teams take care of it. So yes, if you call every question stupid, they are going to call you out. Then if you also, call me stupid for reading stupid questions, they are going to tell you to leave. Love you guys, thanks for having my back! Oh yea, by the way this all happened before the end of the first round and I

She Doesn't Even Go Here!
MarthaZapata

Come guys, only one team tonight referenced Mean Girls?!? I’m a little disappointed… not really. I actually forgot that today was the day that referenced the movie until tonight. I like that movie, but I really sometimes don’t understand the whole obsession behind it. Lindsay Lohan was not bat shit crazy yet, so I guess it has that going for it, and Amy Poehler is funny as always but otherwise I don’t understand the cult following behind. Maybe I’m too old for that shit, that’s the most likely answer. On to the quiz. We had a great turn out tonight, and some very competitive rounds. 3 Men & A Baby came out strong and held a
