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

Saturday Night Fever
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

It is Saturday and I think I may have a fever. Okay, that isn’t really true at all – I know for a fact that I don’t have a fever. I am just old and drank last night so I feel like I am going to die. It is kind of amazing how quickly you can fall out of your alcohol champion days. Not so long ago I could go out and drink 2 liters of beer like I did last night and be totally okay. But no, today and din this moment, I go and drink 2 liters of beer, still wake up at 6:30am (on the freaking weekend), and feel like a cup of death all day. Enough about me, lets talk about quiz. Tonight was a great night at Darcy’s. We learned so many things like there are 54

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 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!

Live Fast, Kant Stop! Always floss.
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello Geeks of Darcy’s! It is nice to be back with you and see some friendly faces. I have to say, I love subbing her. The staff is amazingly kind, the food divine, the wine always good, and the audio is a breeze. By the same note, I like playing here for the same reasons. Best team name of the night, Carolina Panthers as Brought to you by Oral-B. A good laugh and you bought me hot chocolate. You win at being most awesome. Live Fast, Diarrhea nice job being on top of your punk rock game. 2,3,4 – best of luck to you. Kant Stop, don’t stop. When I was in high school, I too had feels for philosophers. I was more of a

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

Happy Birthday, Beyoncé
E-Parks

Well hey there new friends and welcome to the blog, where I recap our fun Saturday night at Darcy’s and we all make fun of my pronunciation of French words together. Fun times to be had by all!   Round #2 turned into a dance party/karaoke night as teams bopped along to great hits like “I Will Survive” and “Wild Wild West.” Some songs just make you want to dance. Other songs make you sing along to music that has stopped playing. You leaned into those impulses and Sheryl Sandberg and I are both proud of you.   My

This Quiz Made Me Want Bread
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to the blog, where I tell you all the funny things that happened Saturday night at Darcy’s. Tonight, round 6 was definitely my favorite round of the evening. The theme of round 6 was “This Round is Not Gluten-Free” and it was all about different kinds of delicious bread from around the world. Naan, Ciabatta, Sourdough. I like to think that Oprah and I have a lot of things in common, one of which is our love of bread. Oprah’s my girl. She really gets what is important in life. I’m just saying that I love bread and hopefully there will be more bread-themed rounds in the future. Also, I should eat dinner

We’re Grateful that Spelling Doesn’t Count
E-Parks

Well hey there nerds and welcome to the blog. So glad you could join me as I recap the best damn pub quiz in town: Saturday night at Darcy’s!   Something fun that I learned tonight (that was not actually a part of the quiz) is that “Try Eel Sperm” is an anagram for Meryl Streep. Now, I’m not sure if this is a suggestion (though I can’t imagine that Meryl recommends it), but since Meryl is the best, it is unsurprising that she has the best anagram. I tried to anagram my name and the best I could come up with is “Primary Leek.” Which, is fine. I like leeks. But

Not Even the Olympics Can Distract Us From Quiz Greatness
E-Parks

Well hello there nerds and welcome back to the blog.   Saturday night at Darcy’s was a doozy, full of laughing (I’m hilarious), crying (USA won TWO gold medals during the quiz), and fun times had by all (especially the woman dancing in the back, not playing the quiz, who told me I was a great DJ. Ummm, thanks?).   We started out the night filling in the blanks on some well-known adages. You folks crushed this round, with an average score of 7. On our first free beer bonus question of the evening, it took us a long time to get the

The Olympics: American Exceptionalism at its Finest
E-Parks

Well hey there new friends! Welcome to the blog. I hope you enjoy my deep reflections (read: ramblings) on Saturday night’s quiz at Darcy’s!   I love the Olympics. Like, really love the Olympics. It is the perfect combination of patriotism, competition, and super fit humans doing really cool things. AND, it perfectly coincides with our national election fatigue to give us a brief break from political commentary. Speaking of friendly competition...   You folks crushed it tonight with some super high scores coupled with some super

Everything I know I learned from Mr. Feeny
E-Parks

  Well hello there new friends. Nice of you to join me here on the blog. We’re recapping all of the great and exciting happenings here at Darcy’s. Tonight’s quiz was a doozy. We tried to throw you off with a non-traditional round 2, which was our first audio round of the evening. But alas, you could not be fooled by our shenanigans. And we were all reminded of how fantastic the Fatboy Slim music video for Weapon of Choice was. If you haven’t seen Christopher Walken floating around, you should check out the video

Follow Ted Cruz’s Advice: Vote Your Conscience
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers! We had another great Saturday night (alright) at Darcy’s. We learned some fun things, we listened to some great tunes, but most importantly, we made fun of Republicans. Coming off of the RNC in Cleveland, we had some fancy team names that reflected on the week we’ve had. We had a strong showing from Growing Up a Poor Black Woman - By Melania Trump and contemplated Ted Cruz’s advice to Vote Your Conscience. I can only hope that next week, the DNC in Philadelphia will inspire some equally creative team names. But

We Didn't Start the Fire, or Snoop Dogg's Career
Micah

A fun time at Darcy's Bistro and Pub this week for our weekly pub quiz! Happy to come back for a third time, this time subbing for QM Emily, with the assistance of Amanda on scorekeeping action.  We discussed all kinds of things this week: bad branding ideas, bluegrass covers of pop/rock songs, living Presidential contest losers, people and things with names of drinks in them, artists featured in self-portraits, farm things, and podcast hosts doing live reads!   In the end, Is that a Diglett in Your Pocket or Are You Happy to See Me? took 3rd place, The Original Sheamus

Hey, everybody!

I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, I've been to 45 states, and I saw Letterman's "Late Show" live 20 times before it ended.

I'm on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite.

Anyway, enough about me. See you at Nicolo's Pizza in Capitol Hill every Wednesday at 8pm, and Fado Irish Pub Thursdays at 8pm!

Do We REALLY Need Grammar?
E-Parks

Oh hey there nerds. Nice of you to join me here on the blog. We had a lovely evening at Darcy’s, good times were had by all. This Quizmaster was joined tonight by Amanda, Scorekeeper extraordinaire, to keep the quiz running like a well-oiled machine. Together, we explored a little bit of WWII history, had fun with shapes, and learned about our pasty friends, the Swedes. I would like to use this time to formally apologize to the young gentleman who listed a specific brand/model of fleshlight for the free beer bonus question. I was just looking for the generic term “fleshlight,” so I apologize that

Flowers for Alderaan
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello Geeks of Darcy’s! Thanks for joining me last night for Geeks Who Drink. I hope you had as much fun as I did. It is always pleasure to host here and it is not just because of the prime rib special. You are great group of quizzers and I like that there is railing to separate you and I during bonus questions. Nothing personal, I just like my space. Speaking of space. You caught me! I am a huge Star Wars fan a.k.a. totally not Star Wars literate. I like it and I know very little. I know things like Han is a super fox, Leia is a badass, and Luke is a whiner. I am a basic girl with basic knowledge of the Force. You are not the first crowd to boo me on this topic and I am sure

Are Vibrators and Vacuums Really All That Different? (Yes)
E-Parks

Well, folks, I’ve gone and done it. I said “Fuck-tion” in front of 24 teams’-worth of my closest friends, instead of the more common and less vivid word, “function.” You all laughed. I turned bright red. It’s fine. I’m fine. I’m not embarrassed, you’re embarrassed. Also, it was on a question about vibrators, so I suppose we all know what’s on my mind. Fuck-tion. But way to go, Darcy’s! We had a whopping 24 teams come out tonight and the competition was fierce! The Whirling Dervishes came

Does Profanity Make the Quiz More Fun?
E-Parks

Hello nerds! I’m back at Darcy’s and boy did we have fun tonight. What I erroneously thought would be a lazy, slow summer evening turned into a par-tay with a full twenty teams playing. And the competition was fierce.   Like always, rounds two and eight were worth double points. However, because we like to switch things up over at Geeks Who Drink, rounds three and five were also worth double points. Which means that we definitely had some high scoring teams out tonight.   As a human who doesn’t use profanity very often, I

A Time When Children and Dogs Wandered the Streets
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Tronald Dump there might have been a time when America was great. When it was cool for toddlers and large dogs to wander the streets. No one feared for the safety of their children because true American kids could lasso dogs and ride them down the street. Now America is made of weaklings. Or at least you could find the humor in my new neighbors. I would be much happier to have politically apathetic neighbors. If your opinion does not mesh with mine, I would prefer you to not have one. I am open to many of your quiz related opinions. Shout out to those of you who thought the coolest repeating character in Caddy Shack was the gopher. He was a stooge but, way cooler than
