Winter is Coming...Tomorrow
theshrew

Winter is NOT Coming. Remember how I said it might be in the blog last week? Well, I saw a t-shirt today that said the opposite, which really just about sums it up. Except that then maybe I realized this was why so few of you were at quiz tonight. You're huddling up inside waiting for the closest thing you can get to winter, tomorrow night. I no longer have HBO so you'll have to tell me about it next Saturday.   Stories of the night included, but were not limited to:

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.

Outdated References, Among Other Team Names
theshrew

  Winter is Coming. So stated one team name tonight. I think they got it wrong. Winter is here. Or rather, it's back. How does that work? Maybe this is Winter 2017 already starting...   Stories of the night included, but were not limited to:   Ties! Not just “tie” - TIES!!!! You people never give me ties, but here is where that old saying about it never raining, but dumping down snow,

April not-Fools
theshrew

Welcome back to Darcy's on a beautiful spring evening! It was lovely to have you. I hope it was lovely to be had.   Stories of the night included, but were not limited to:   Some of us played our Joker very early, and while it may have been the right decision, it made it difficult to know what was going to happen in R8 when everyone else had sucked it up in R2 and therefore saved their Joker.

Happy Day-After-April-Fools-Day
theshrew

It's nice to be back to normal, in'it? No QFAC, no St Pat's, just you, me, some good old fashioned Darcy's fun, and a heaping helping of quiz. Nothing like it in the world. Ok sometimes I have a new computer to bring to quiz and that throws things off. And sometimes I don't close on a house on Wednesday the way I'm supposed to, and that makes me a grumpy quizmistress. I know you can't tell because the mug has washed off a bit in the past 2 years, but the mug does say “Don't Fuck With the Quizmistress.” It's never been more true than tonight.

Welcome to Spring Quizzing
theshrew

HAPPY EASTER! Beginning of spring, quiz time extraordinaire, and you were here to kick it off. 2 days after 20 inches of snow. That's Colorado for you. At least you know that quiz is consistent, week in week out, here at Darcy's. Although if it snows an actual 20 inches on a Saturday, I'll give you a pass. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: Penises. Wow. Lots of penises. Did you know how

Quiz For A Cause...Or Just To Quiz
theshrew

  QFAC! We just like acronyms. It was Quiz For A Cause, tonight. The worthy cause? Denver Rise School, and their goal of moving into a building that is all theirs, for their awesome goal of serving Denver's kids and teaching them up right. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: A Rise School team (aka one of the many extra teams we had tonight thanks to the QFAC) won the Donation Pot. That means in addition

Kanye the Almighty and Stupid
Amanda

I don’t know that I’ve ever been so over a human being as much as I am over Kanye West. I mean, his music isn’t my cup of tea but I’m told by people who do like it that he makes decent music but he is just the most unhumble, jerk of a human being. A lot of people got all up in arms about his ‘attack’ on Taylor Swift and I don’t even care about that. It was incredibly rude yes but I’m not a Swift fan either so meh. But it is a great example of how crappy he is. Anyway, enough about the stupidity of Kanye let’s talk about something much better quiz. Tonight was great at Darcy’s and it was great to be back. Tonight was

Oh hey there weary traveler...you're weary from traveling to this blog...or something...lets start over!

Bonjour!

Amanda at your service. By day I manage projects. I will manage your projects SO HARD! By night I do a whole lot of the same things, except on Monday I host a quiz!

In general I like dogs, sweet tea and the beach. You hit me with one of those things and we just became best friends!

Welcome back! I know you missed us. If you had stinky dick candles to keep you company (oh, and the awesomeness of Geek Bowl last weekend) maybe you didn't miss us quite as much. But otherwise I can't even imagine how boring your Saturday night must have been last week. Aren't you glad you didn't have to think about what to do tonight! Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: Lots of you went to Geek Bowl. Congratulations!

Welcome to the last quiz for Two Whole Weeks! How will you live? By coming to Geek Bowl next week, that's how! Sheesh. At any rate we're glad you joined us for our final quiz for Two Whole Weeks here at Darcy's and look forward to welcoming you back soon, but not-as-soon-as-usual.

Super Bowl Eve
theshrew

Once upon a time there was a team that wore orange and blue. They were named after a wild horse. They had a quarterback who deserved to win a Super Bowl. And then they went to the Super Bowl. But that's not 'til tomorrow! Tonight is quiz! Thanks for remembering. And for being here. Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: The team with “Ben” in its name did not include Ben.

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.

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.

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"

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.
