Nasty Women Unite! (AKA Why My Voice is Hoarse from Chanting)
E-Parks

Hey there nasty quizzers and thanks for coming out tonight, even though I know you’re all exhausted from the Women’s March today. Thanks for not laughing at my voice cracks - I guess I just chanted a little too aggressively at the march this morning. Well, I’m still revved-up and that energy carried through to the quiz. We had some laughs, I don’t think anyone cried...good things all around.   Tonight, we had 23 teams, but in the end, Prestige Worldwide took first place (by a single point!) and New President,

Rising High
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hi Geeks of Darcy’s! it has been a minute since we have seen each other. I trust your holidays were splendid and new year off to a brilliant start. Best rounds of the night had to be the smut in round four because it left so many of you with minds in the gutter. Although, after round six all about rockets you seemed to be perking up. Alright, Emily is back next week. Until we meet again. Thanks for playing and take care, Andrea

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

Guess who’s back, back again?
E-Parks

Friends! Colleagues! Countrywomen! Welcome back to the blog, where I tell funny stories about our weekly pub quiz at Darcy’s. Real talk for a sec: I’ve really missed you guys. Because of Christmas Eve (thanks, Jesus) and New Year’s Eve (thanks, Pope Gregory XIII), we haven’t had a Saturday night pub quiz in quite some time. We’re easing back into it together - I’ll be gentle, I promise.   Music update!  I created a super cool and trendy collaborative Spotify playlist so that you can control your own music destiny. All you

Make Sprite Great Again
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! Great news! I FINALLY found a pencil sharpener that works and also doesn’t make a terrible noise. If you haven’t been following my pencil sharpener saga, well it’s been a hoot (my first pencil sharpener was Mortimer, the owl...get it? Hoot?). Three pencil sharpeners later (one broke under the pressure of a 22-team quiz, the next on made an excruciatingly awful noise, but I could power through the USB port on my laptop, so that was pretty nifty), I found one that works! I shall name her Beatrice. She’s made by X-Acto and she is blue (screw gender-normative color schemes). (Have a used enough

It’s all Greek to Me
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to my blog! Well, our blog. It’s here for us to share, a public good. Well, I did a thing and I made a collaborative playlist on Spotify so that you, quizzers, can have some control over the music I play at quiz. I’m going to apply rule number 3 to the playlist as well (don’t fuck with the quizmaster) and give myself veto power. For example, if you put “What’s New Pussycat?” by Tom Jones on this playlist 14 times (h/t John Mulaney), I will not play it. But other than that, go crazy. If you’re craving some 80s power ballads, be my guest. Want to rock out to obscure 90s bands, the playlist

Remember Tom Green? You Do Now!
Sean "Not Jay-Z" Carter

One of the few dangers that comes with being a Quizmaster is the potential for quiz questions to dredge up bad memories.  I thought I had reached the point in my life where I would never have to be reminded of Tom Green again, outside of the occasional rerun of Road Trip.  Last night's clip from round 7 threatened to keep me up all night with uncomfortable memories of what passed for comedy in the early 00's.  I can only hope it will be several more years before I have to deal with that experience again. Thanks to all the teams who came out last night for making it an easy subbing gig.  You guys are all consummate professionals.  Ultimately it was Sacrelicious who

Turkey Hangovers and Fidel Castro
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog, post-Thanksgiving edition. I hope you had a nice time with your families, friends, or cats - however you choose to celebrate. Here at Darcy’s, we played a great quiz with some stiff competition. Some of our regulars were most likely visiting family out of town, which opened up the field for some fresh blood.   Tonight Castro, Castro, Castro! won by a whopping 11 points!   Things we learned tonight:

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! Remember a few weeks ago when I was complaining about how warm it was? I was upset that fall wouldn’t come? Yeah...I regret saying that now. Clearly the weather gods read my blog and now it is so cold in Denver! It is very abruptly winter and I am chilly. Please send blankets.   Oh, also, we had a quiz tonight. In the end Theater's A Safe Space? Tell That To Lincoln ending up winning by a whopping 8 points.   Here are some things we

Hippos and Zippos
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! I know that I was happy to spend a couple of hours with your smiling faces to remind myself that there are smart people who care. And you, nerds, you care.   Oh! I heard a new joke this week that I hadn’t heard before. Want to hear it? Of course you do. What’s the difference between a hippo and a Zippo? One is really heavy and one is a little lighter! Eh, eh, do you get it? Do any of you have good jokes for me?   Anyway, we played a great quiz tonight and learned some things. Here

Columbia House Coffee Knows Where You Live
Sean "Not Jay-Z" Carter

Let me begin by thanking all of the teams at quiz last night for taking it easy on the substitute QM.  You guys were a lot of fun and good sports during the laptop issues.  Kudos as well to the crew at Darcy’s for the excellent quiz venue.  Emily will be back next week but I appreciate you all making it a fun night. I feel terrible for forgetting to remind everyone to fall back an hour.  It’s not often you get a chance to provide a civic service while also enjoying a few beers, so that was a huge miss on my part.  I hope no one’s morning shift or brunch plans were ruined. Amidst fierce competition Pogue Mahone edged

Zombies?
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

  Hello Geeks of Darcy’s it is nice to see you again and enjoy some of the ghoulish costumes you wore to quiz. The staff looked completely darling dressed as Geeks. I liked that we had some steam punks wander through. We had one snarky waffle, a couple of witches, and a gal in her long johns! The festivities continued into quiz with a round on horror film geography and one on Zombie cinema. I was surprised that some of you did not know more of our zombie films but, maybe the craze is over.  thanks for playing,  Andrea

A Completely Trump-Free Quiz!
E-Parks

Hello! Welcome to the blog, where I tell some jokes about our super fun pub quiz. Tonight was a hoot - you, quizzers, keep me young.   But first, I would like to briefly rant about something. I love fall. It is my favorite holiday, mostly for the clothes, but also for the seasonal scents that are available for a limited time only at Bath and Body Works. I love scarves, boots, and flannel, so, for a solid month, that’s what I’ve been wearing because it is October 22 - firmly in fall territory. But today was 85 frickin’ degrees! And last weekend got up to 88 degree. Denver is letting

QFAC: Quizzers are Awesome
E-Parks

Well quizzers, you blew me away tonight. We quizzed for a cause and that cause was Dysautonomia International. Quiz For A Cause (QFAC) if you aren't aware, is our philanthropic arm where we help various groups raise funds and awareness. You can familiarize yourself with its purpose here http://geekswhodrink.com/QFAC/. Together, we raised over $600 for Dysautonomia International, and played a great pub quiz to boot. There was a lot of turquoise and I love turquoise (see pictures).

McDonald’s McDonald’s Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut

Friends! Colleagues! Countrywomen! Welcome to the blog, where I publicly post all of the inside jokes from the best damn pub quiz in town. Were you not there? Did you miss out? Do you have FOMO (yeah, I know hip lingo. I am totes in with the youths). Well then join me next Saturday night at Darcy’s!   Does anyone else think that the century naming structure is stupid? I mean, I understand why the 1100s are called the 12th century. Because it is LITERALLY the 12th century, post Jesus. But it’s confusing to me. And apparently to you as well because we really struggled through the first round.

RIP Shimon Peres and my 1996 Tamagotchi
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog, where I tell you fun stories about my Saturday night. It’s like Monday morning around the water cooler, but less work-appropriate. Well I had a quizzing first tonight: a perfect round. Every single one of my teams got a perfect score on the visual round. I don’t do sportsball, but I feel like I should make a sports analogy here. A no-hitter? A grand slam? Bowling a 300? Do I get to do a touchdown dance? I like dancing more than sportsball. We also had some great team names this week. Thanks for stepping up

Helen Mirren is My Queen
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! We’re recapping a great Saturday night at Darcy’s where we learned a bunch, made fun of each other for what we didn’t know, and listened to a lot of 90s alternative rock. It was a dream.   Unfortunately, every single one of you has been personally victimized by Frontier Airlines and thusly knows that Denver is the main hub city for Frontier. I am so sorry for your loss. I am also sorry about those TINY tray tables. They are so little. I didn’t appreciate my life of luxury with full-sized tray tables when I had them. I always took them for granted and now I am being punished by
