I'll Quiz With You, Whatever
Evan

I know I gave some people a hard time tonight, but everyone did really well! Now, that may sound a bit disingenuous, looking at the scores and all, but I really really mean it! Everyone had a great time, had an impressive amount of energy, and conducted themselves with admirable sportsmanship! No kidding. I had a lot of fun, and if the exact same people show up next week, I will consider myself a lucky man.   Lots of British things on tonight's quiz. I even think I heard someone with a British accent in the bar. But since they weren't playing, I didn't really get a chance to investigate.

And All That Les Mizz
Evan

We mentioned that there was a still-edible jar of honey in King Tut's tomb. And now all I can think about is a Winnie the Pooh story where Pooh breaks into Tut's tomb with a band of grave robbers, and then eats so much ancient Egyptian honey that he can't fit through the escape hole they blasted in the wall!   All of that is not only historically possible, but also great entertainment.   Speaking of lies, I told a bunch in Round Two about the artists and which groups they were with before embarking on a solo career.

Should've Been "Mx. Peacock"
Evan

So, I think in the heat of quiz, and under the scrutiny of someone who obviously was WAY more familiar with horses than I am, I got all the horse-balls stuff mixed up. But guess what? It does get a little complicated. For instance, if a horse is less than one year old, you can refer to it as a foal, whether male or female. Once they hit their first birthday, and until they hit their second, you can call it a yearling. And of course, you can call a male horse a colt, up until it's four years old. But what I got a bit twisted is that a stallion is uncastrated, hence all that talk of boning. And a castrated horse is a gelding.   Do you blame me, though?

Blood, Sweat, and Quizzes
Kyrsti Cravetron

Hello again, Trifecta! Lots of new faces this evening, very exciting! The evening started off with an artsy Round 1, but right now I want to talk about our audio Round 2, we had three teams (Brexit In Bed--first place!--, Lil Big Dicks and The Biscuits; Butter On The Biscuits) get a perfect 16 points! I guess Pharrell really knows how to write catchy songs.   We had a speedy Round 3 on southern NFL teams, but one question from Round 4 particularly caught my interest: About what percentage of U.S. adults have been divorced? And I gave the options of 5%, 20%, or 40%, only one team answered correctly, and I gotta

Good Luck With Your Avocados
Kyrsti Cravetron

Another wonderful evening at Trifecta! Also happy first Cancer day! Got lots of friends with birthdays coming up, I need to prepare my liver. Gotta give a big shout out to Kafai’s Killers, who were in last place up until they rocked Round 8 and shot into second with the help of their joker. Random knowledge is power! Although We're Gonna Beat Those Guys did end up snatching up first, they really did it. I think Round 6 was my favorite, not only did I get to say Beelzebub outside of Bohemian Rhapsody, I hadn’t thought of the Wheels On The Bus song in ages, and the damned tune was stuck in my head for quite a while.

The Greatest Quiz In The World
Kyrsti Cravetron

Hello again, Trifecta!   What a funducational quiz! That’s fun and educational, get it? I’m hilarious. Anyways, I learned a couple of neat things from the quiz! Like how tomato leaves are apparently mildly toxic or that Glastonbury is a real name for a real thing. RIP ALF took home first place again this week (different team name last week) with Boner X10 in second and Red Jaguar in third. My favorite team name was A Lannister Always Spays His Pets. Clever boys. But there is one team in particular that really stuck out to me, and that’s Johnny Menziel who participated

Young Einstein Was a Babe
Kyrsti Cravetron

Ah… my first quiz as a Quizmaster, it was quite exciting and absolutely terrifying. Oftentimes, when people think of the word “geek” it tends to bring up thoughts of comics, video games, anime, Magic The Gathering, etc., etc. One of my favorite things about Geeks Who Drink is that it recognizes that there are no boundaries to what you can geek out about: games, sports, geography, history, movies, music, and more. I really enjoy seeing that diversity and not catering to a single genre of “geek.” Round 7 was a good round for movie geeks, it was an audio round that featured one quote from a movie per question, and the quotes got shorter as the round

I Get By With a Little Help from the Drunk Guy at the Bar
Evan

Yeah, he was the elephant in the room as far as tonight's quiz was concerned. He seemed amiable enough, but just way too excited when he actually knew an answer. Didn't hear a peep from him when we did the Boy Named Suicide Squad round though. Just sayin'!   Thanks for playing with us at Trifecta tonight! Betcha didn't know that a Charanga was made from armadillos. You learn something new every time you play quiz! I can think of about a dozen things we did with armadillos when I was a kid, but none were as cruel as making them into a musical instrument. We mostly

That Substitute Quizmaster is a Jerk!
Evan

First of all, when I turned to the team named Sorry, We Won't Hold the Door, and proclaimed my undying hatred for them, you must understand one thing. Or rather, you must watch one thing. And if you haven't watched that one thing, I'm not going to tell you what it is. Because I am either a giant jerk, or the best friend you've ever had.   Point is, they made me feel those feels all over again. (Don't you understand?? I'm trying to FORGET!)   Also, I feel like I chastized y'all pretty hard for not knowing

How Come Every Team Name Sounds Phallic?
Mike

As most good pub quizzes go, last night’s quiz at Trifecta on 3rd was a real learning experience for all of us. Some of us learned geography, some of us learned how to run a whole new sound system and some of us learned how much alcohol we can safely consume. It’s a pretty good bar to learn the last lesson because their drinks are fantastic, btw. (They’re known for their bourbon AND their martinis, and their happy hour goes all the way up until the quiz starts at 8!) I needed one of those drinks to cope with the initial stress associated with a sensitive sound system and a rowdy crowd of non-player patrons. Being new to this bar’s audio setup, it

Like My Blues to the Dallas Stars, I too Drop the Mic
Monstar Blanko

I was WAY HYPED last night. One might say, too hyped. I had my only off day from my day job for the entire month of May, my St. Louis Blues were in their second consecutive game 7 this time on the road in Dallas, and I got to once again lead you lovely people in quiz at Trifecta on Third.   I forewarned you that the quiz would include spontaneous fist pumps and obscenities as the game progressed, and I did not lie to you. From the very jump, adorned in my Blues hockey sweater, I was yelling plenty of obscenities at the TV in between our questions. At a particularly tense moment, I whapped the microphone of the table and had to resort to barking out the questions for round

Playoff Beard vs. Professionalism
Monstar Blanko

Greetings Quizers of Trifecta on 3rd. How awesome are the NHL playoffs? I know not everyone here in Texas are big on Ice Hockey, but it is SOO MUCH FUN! I mean it’s frenzied, physical, intense, and ripe with traditions. From the handshake line after a hard fought season, to the refusal to touch the conference championship, to Lord Stanley’s Cup itself, it is rich with history. One tradition that I, a fan of the St. Louis Blues, have undertaken each time they’ve advanced to the post season is the playoff beard.   One thing about me guys, Hi I’m Will by the way, is that despite my imposing stature and booming baritone, I have the saddest

Monstar Blanko

Greetings again Trifecters, it’s your quizmaster Will, aka the large man. Last night my lovely girlfriend Shae came to play ready to also enjoy a little Cubs baseball on the TV screen. This however, would not come to pass as the weather in Chicago refused to cooperate. Perhaps it was her anger from not seeing the reigning Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta that propelled her to kicking ass at an interview today!!!   We had a great turnout and a back and forth competition between a few teams for the championship belt. Our first round we went through some Historical figures day planners in which some forgot Queen Elizabeth never had a husband and it was Victoria who opined

We had a lot of would be quizzers out celebrating 4/20 but for you all that decided to test your brain cells instead of impair them, I and the lovely staff of trifecta thank you!   It was literally a trifecta at Trifecta as we had 3 teams competing for the crown. In the first round we recapped current events including the tragic passing of Doris Roberts. Round two we jammed out to a medley of four chord songs including such hits as “Pork and Beans” by Weezer and every frat boys porch party anthem “Wagon Wheel”   We followed that up with

The One where I Forgot to Take Pictures
Monstar Blanko

Last night was day #2 for your boy coming out of the bullpen to lead Austin’s quizers to glory. I’d say I got the save the night before at Craft Pride but it definitely wasn’t a 1-2-3 inning (really struggled pronouncing some impossible words). But for the second time in two nights, skip made a call to the rangy righty to work the 9th with you lovely people at Trifecta on 3rd!   Once again, my stuff was not all there. Worked quickly, brought the heat with some bumping tracks, threw some wicked curveball jokes, however struggled with command, or perhaps more specifically one command (take pictures of you peeps). The only photo I took was off

Better Call Paul
C.M. Geesey

Longtime quizzers know that if there’s any man out there that gets my heterosexual blood a’ boiling, it’s one Mr. Paul Stephen Rudd.  I don’t know what it is, other than his immense likability, brilliant comedic timing, and gorgeous, age-resistant face, but if he were to ask me to abandon my life to sail around the world on yacht with him and only him, well, I’d just have to tell my lovely, amazing girlfriend to hit the bricks.  Ant-Man only comes calling once a lifetime, after all, so this Wednesday evening we had the pleasure of celebrating the 47th consecutive year we were lucky enough to have Paul Rudd on this Earth.  Also it was
