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?   -

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!

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.

A Day in May
theshrew

Happy Cinco de Mayo. Actually it was the 7th of Mayo today, but we like to celebrate things on Saturdays in this here country. At least you didn't have to answer an entire round about May 5th. Although I bet that might have happened if you'd come to quiz on Thursday. Just sayin'.   Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: It

Springtime = Snow Showers
theshrew

I was a little distracted tonight, sorry about that. Stanley Cup, you know. I'm sure you'd feel the same if the Avs were in it.   Stories of the night included, but were not limited to: Y'all came out on a final-day-of-April snow shower. April showers bring May flowers, and all that jazz. Except tomorrow is May 1st and it's still supposed to be snowing.

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:

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!!!!

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.

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.

Super Bowl Eve

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.
