George Michael Stars in "Wham! Bam! Thank ya, Ma'am!"
AdamSweeney

Fact; Wham's "Last Christmas" is one the greatest, and most ridiculous, holiday songs ever. Cool? Cool. Last night marked the debut of my time as a quizmaster at Trifecta, and Evan will be sorely missed. Love that guy. But the show must go on and you all made me feel very welcome, and a lot of you are Red Sox fans! Bonus! Any fan of the BoSox is a friend of mine.  The Real Slim Shady definitely stood up at the quiz on Wednesday, taking home the 1st place prize. Now if only we had an 8 Mile poster to give them. Eminem, are ya listening? I totally agree with the notion that Trifecta is smuggling children to cut costs on their delicious

Quiz Comes in Spurts
Evan

We started quiz off with a round which mentioned xenophobia, ethnic cleansing, and Brad Pitt. I mean, we did warn you it was all gonna be Gloom and Doom. Unfortunately, though, no Doctor Doom questions. This time. And then we had a whole round on Fidel Castro. So, we're all good on the controversial subject matter for a good while! Let's all just talk about how great Morgan Freeman is, or the nutritional content of fresh greens!   Now I'm really starting to wonder about those in-visible patrons of the diner in "Nighthawks." Are they hiding? Could they be incorporeal? Where the hell

The Red Jungle Fowl of Antarctica
Evan

The thing you don't tend to notice until you start to cut out animals from your diet, is how many unassuming products actually have animal parts in them. Hence your round five. For instance, most beer-y people have heard about Guinness having gross fish guts in it, and almost all vegetarian types are warned about gelatin early on. But I mean, Little Debbies definitely has lard in most their snack cakes. And shit, a whole lot of gummies and candies have some sort of gelatin. A lot of yogurt has it too. And if you don't eat animals but somehow still ingest their by-products, beware of rennet in cheese.

True Musings
Evan

Pinto-- the most commonly refried bean, but not the best. I've had some refried black beans that would beat the hell from any pinto refriedness the world could conjure. But maybe I'm exaggerating. Because I love black beans. Love them.   By the way, Teddy Roosevelt got the first Golden Ticket that MLB issued. Because of course he did. He's Teddy Goddamn Roosevelt. Just try to tell that man that he can't get into your game because he doesn't have a ticket. Just TRY.  You couldn't, because he's dead.  But I meant when he was alive.

Quizmaster's No Good, Terrible, Very Bad Day
Metal Gretel

Yes, Let us get into the fact that I had a very TRYING day yesterday. Somehow it didn't even equate to the worst day of my life. Honestly I'm sure I'll laugh it off in the future.  1) Donald Trump was elected. This bit is a shitty given for about 75% of America. I only say that because 25% of you actually voted for that fucking guy. nearly 50% of America didn't fucking vote. So, in essence, y'all are a bunch of assholes too. Exercise your right to laziness and fuck us all. #Orange 2) I stayed up super fucking late and I'm tired. This was because I wanted to. I volunteered to make an alternative Round 7 for you guys and I'm proud of the work I did. I really

Wednesday night, man.  Pizza and beer and pub quiz.  And wine, I guess.  Pretty sure I saw some of y'all drankin' that wine.   We had a guest appearance from Quizmaster-to-be Michael! He took over the mic for a couple of rounds, mostly so that I could keep my eye on some of your goddamn shenanigans. That's right, goddamn shenanigans! All over the place! So many I can't even count! For instance, we had a quiz rivalry in the making, as two teams yelled jabs at each other from across the bar. They were good-natured jabs, I assure you, but that's how blood feuds start, you know!

Kete Bakingsale's Hot Freeway Action
Evan

I hope you now know more about Lesotho than you used to know. I know I do. For instance, I now know that Cry Freedom was directed by Richard and not David Attenborough. And I know that the movie was mostly filmed in Zimbabwe and Kenya, since shit in South Africa at the time was bonkers. To put it lightly. And the tallest dam in Africa may go to the Tekeze Dam in Ethiopia, but it's not nearly as pretty as Lesotho's Katse Dam.   Whether you loved or hated the round on musicals by someone who has never seen those musicals (I personally loved it), everyone did pretty okay at least!

Questions, Drinks, and Questionable Drinks
Evan

There's a good chance that I've talked up Congo before on one of these blogs, simply because it is a miracle of cinema. Not only does it have a Bruce Campbell cameo, it also features Tim Curry with a ridiculous accent, badass Ernie Hudson and Laura Linney taking out rockets with flare guns from a moving airplane, a buncha fake-ass killer gorillas gettin' cut in half by lasers, and the best scene in cinematic history:   "STOP EATING MY SESAME CAKE!"   Trust me. Watch it. Laugh at it. It's what dumb action movies

Put on Your Tarboosh!
Evan

Just before quiz, as I was wolfin' down a pizza, a tiny bit of the sauce got on the paper copy of the questions I print out. Now, I'm not the superstitious type, but I think, I think that means good luck for the quiz ahead! Either that... or maybe I need to slow down when I'm throwin' down a pizza.   Now, I'm all for a good roasting. And more often than not, one Donny Trump is the subject of said roasting at quiz. I mean, think whatever you want about the guy-- I think it's a proven fact that he's ripe for roasting. But I swear, you gotta remember that we live in Texas, and that some

Where My Chemistry Majors At?!
Rev. Lindsay

Oh… you left them at home, huh?  Well, you fared pretty well on our audio round were you had to remember the chemical symbols that you haven’t thought about since sophomore year of high school either way.   It is always nice to be back at Trifecta!  I heartily enjoy the cozy little nook, and vast selection of bourbons, and your faces.  Also, the three clustered PokeStops are kinda great too.   I took full advantage of being downtown last night and after quiz, floated on my cloud of whiskey over to the drag show down the street.  Sadly, at that point I had to stop drinking, but I made up for it by making it rain on drag

The Blog is BACK
Evan

But don't call it a comeback, I've been here every week for months!   I hit a buncha traffic on Mopac coming down here. A big wreck was cloggin' it up. Hope everyone was okay, and I hope none of you got caught in the inevitable jam. (Hey, jam was all over one of our rounds tonight!)   You know what else was conspicuously present during quiz? Trump. His interview with Matt Lauer was on the telly earlier. I think that's what prompted our first place team's name.  And all the ensuing 'fuck's.

We learned on quiz tonight that Smokey the Bear's slogan could have been "Care will prevent nine out of ten forest fires," yeah? So... that just makes me think that maybe he could have been affiliated with the care bears?? Like, he'd be the Smokey Bear Care Bear, with like, a campfire symbol on his chest. And when he comes across a forest fire, he does that fuckin' Care Bear Stare thing, right? And then, well, nine out of ten times, he puts that fire the fuck out.   I wasn't making shit up: Safety Not Guaranteed is a pretty good flick. It's about a bunch of misfits from a magazine

Next Time I Visit, I’m Bringing A Bell For That Guy
Rev. Lindsay

Hi friends! I was just pleased as punch to come on out and give y’all some quiz tonight.  Tonight marked my triumphant return to Trifecta after the last time I guest hosted… three-ish years ago when it was still under the helm of QM Jeavon.  Now QM Evan is your real dad and I found Trifecta to still be in good care.  Evan was out tonight working on his project of the Squirrel Olympics.  It’s like the Puppy Bowl, so all the events are done with trained squirrels.  He’s having a helluva time with it though… since seasons no longer mean anything and all the squirrels everywhere are morbidly obese,

What Fruit You Jam in There Is Your Business

Can I talk about the pizzas at Trifecta? I mean, I don't eat a lot of meat, so the vegetarian is the only one I've had. But it has some great toppings, and the crust is just fucking perfect. Of course, it's a matter of preference, but I love that crispy thin crust. The only thing better is that thick, fluffy crust, all soft and doughy. Filled with cheese. Dipped in marinara. With a beer.   Shit. Now I'm hungry again.   We had a great time at Trifecta! Did everyone get a piece of that ridiculous cookie candy brownie

Many Idle Hands Make the Devil's Workshop
Evan

You know what, if Gandalf's so great, how come he didn't realize that his friend, who lived in a black tower called Orthanc, was gonna turn out evil? I mean, first of all it's a black tower, which as we all know means it's evil; because J.R.R. was many things, and one of those may have been a racist. Also, "Orthanc" is just two steps from "Orc." It's just Orc with a "than" stuck in the middle. More Orc than Orc.   I just realized that if you stacked those 100 Judge Judys horizontally instead of vertically, they probably wouldn't even be half as tall as the tallest redwood. I mean,
