Shamrocks and Sunburns
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and congrats on surviving St. Patrick’s day! The staff here at Darcy’s Irish Pub looks...rough today. I suspect a few too many green beers were consumed here last night.   Also, happy spring! I am not sure when spring actually starts, but today was the first day for me. I know this because me and my pasty skin received my first sunburn of the season. Thanks for sharing in my pain.   Things we learned tonight:   1. A surprising amount about Pierre, South

Top O’ The Quiz To You
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog. St. Patrick’s Day has officially hit Darcy’s, and the green beer is flowing. I should have known. It is an Irish pub, after all. But everyone tonight was in great spirits (pun intended) and we had one hell of a quiz.   Only the truest geeks prevailed tonight, and out of a whopping 23 teams, Weird Owl took home the grand prize. Strong performances all around.   Things we learned tonight:

I Wouldn’t Do That for a Klondike Bar
E-Parks

  Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog, where we are enjoying this small taste of spring and hoping that it doesn’t snow this week.   Restaurant week has got our numbers down, but that means that there wasn’t some fierce competition tonight. Thanks to everyone for coming out, but in the end When Something Goes Wrong, I just Swallow pulled into first place in the final round.   Things we learned tonight: 1. I never knew how the card game

Gingers DO Have Souls!
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to the blog! Tonight at Darcy’s, we went back to high school with some top-notch high school theater productions, our Jeopardy fans showed off their “before and after” skills, and we all learned what goes into a Puttanesca sauce (deliciousness, really).   In the end, The Zoo Advertised Wildebeests As Fake Gnus took home the grand prize with Alien Vs. Predator Vs. Brown Vs. Board of Education only two points behind!

Flu Season is Flaming Moe Season
Sean "Not Jay-Z" Carter

Flu shot or no, this time of year it’s important to remember to boost your immune system however you can.  Last night’s quiz reminded us of the many ways pop culture has helped influence our options for medical care.  The Flaming Moe is definitely good for a laugh, but while fire may make it good I want to use my position of blogging authority to remind everyone that it’s usually not a good idea to mix alcohol and medicine.  I can speak from experience on this one, and let’s just say I’m thankful I grew up in the days before cell phone cameras.  The More You Know. Now that the PSA is done, let’s talk about that quiz.  We

Well at least Trump is giving us good team name fodder
E-Parks

Hey there quizcicles and welcome back to the blog, where we are giving you the rundown of the best damn pub quiz in town. Tonight, we took a trip down memory lane of celebrity relationships, learned the “proper” gifts to give your partner for your anniversary, and mocked bad video games. We came, we saw, we quizzed.   In first place, Badonka Choculah and in second, Babies Ate My Dingo!. My favorite team name of the night was Accidental

We Are Not “Sports People”
E-Parks

Hey Quizzers and welcome back to the blog, where we are recapping the best dang pub quiz in town! Tonight we learned about postal abbreviations, sea dragons, and some badass women. My favorite moment of the evening was during round 5, our visual round, when quizzers had a 50% chance of correctly guessing the super bowl winners for the year listed. One team (who shall remain nameless…) managed to score exactly zero points on that round. That is impressive purely because it defies statistics. I’ve found my people...and we are not sports people.   Tonight, Bowling Green Massacre

Hey quizzers and welcome to the Darcy’s Geeks Who Drink blog! Emily here, your quizmisstress extraordinaire. Good news! My computer has officially stopped underlining “quizmistress” with that red squiggly line, which probably means that I have typed it too many times.   Quiz tonight was a doozy! In the end, How to Divide a Country in One Simple Election took home first place and We Came to Play Trivia and Punch Nazis came in second.

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.

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

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:

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.
