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

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

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,

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

Hi Geeks of Darcy’s so nice to see you all again. This is one of my favorite venues to visit. Good audio, food, wine, and staff. Really it would be hard to ask for more. Quiz was fun. Hope you enjoyed our Spanish round as much as I did. My vocabulary has expanded! I am now waiting for the perfect time to use the Spanish version for bellybutton casually in conversation. The day will come and it will be fabuloso. Until then and until next week, take care. Thanks for playing, Andrea

Everyone Knows A Lot About Magic The Gathering
E-Parks

Well, nerds, you’re really staying on-brand here with the amount that you collectively know about Magic the Gathering. Fortunately for you, this means successfully determining that “Lady of the Lake” is a wrestling move and not a banned Magic card. Though the collective chuckle that erupted from the room when I announced a question on Magic the Gathering leads me to believe that I would

Let Your Soul Glo!
Micah

Okay... two required watching assignments coming from this week's pub quiz at Darcy's: 1) Watch Coming To America, if you haven't... and even if you have! Like me, it's been ages. I need to watch it again.   2) Watch What's Love Got to Do With It, starring Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett! When Tina beats the shit out of Ike? Magic.   It was a blast hanging out with you folks at Darcy's this week. I've played quiz once there before, and it was fun to host and show new QM Emily the ropes!   What did we learn at pub quiz this week?   -

Was the 14th With You?
theshrew

Happy 14th of May. May it be with you. And all that. I know, I know, that one was a stretch. But admit it, it was funny. And YOU wouldn't have thought of it. And we did. It's the little things like that, that keep you coming back week after week. Also, thank you for not knocking my soup over. I know my table is small, and that is why typically I do not eat at quiz. But there was a sugar-crash emergency. And damn that potato leek soup is good. And boy would I have had to kill anyone who dropped a corner of their round in it. I appreciate you for not so doing.

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.
