Baby's First Quiz
Brad

Hello everyone! Brand-spankin'-new quizmaster Brad here, with the report from Wednesday's quiz at Trifecta on 3rd! Eight teams filled the place, with Romper Roomers taking home the top prize and Are You There God, It's Me Mario close behind. Poor Mario. He's got his first period and he's so confused. I had a blast at this, my first time behind the mic for Geeks Who Drink! You can follow me @monkeyangst on Twitter and of course don't forget to follow @GeeksWhoDrink if

"Hountain", it rhymes with "Mountain"!
Pete Rosky

For the first time in my short Quizmaster career, I hosted quiz with what I am starting to fear is the flu. I’m an idiot, but that’s neither here nor there. Hopped up on Dayquil, Mucinex, and whiskey, I took to the microphone and brought you the best quiz my raspy voice could deliver. I could barely hear myself, but I think I sounded especially sexy. Regular ass-kickers Kanye 2020 came with a few more players than usual, and it worked in their favor as the six-player juggernaut took home the whole enchilada! It was a bold play to save the joker for the eighth round, but the second round was a particularly tricky one for my not-so musically savvy teams. We

Michelangelo's Renaissance Pizza Party
Pete Rosky

Can I just thank y’all for a wonderful evening? Trifecta on 3rd is quickly becoming a second home for yours truly, and I couldn’t be happier. Courtney and Shanie are wonderful, the regular teams like Kanye 2020 are awesome (and good quizzers!), the beer is plentiful, and all is right with the world. Anywho, on to the quiz!  This was a tight race with our second thru sixth place teams really keeping it close until the end. What if your pre-existing condition is douchebag? came through in round eight with a round high ten points to take second place from Spud Coverage, but it was

Michael F*$&ing Douglas?!?!
Pete Rosky

This week was a return to form, with a modest seven teams, three of which are now considered regulars (by me). The mighty “Kanye 2020”, “The Drinkies”, and “Are You There God? It’s a Me, Mario!” returned to run shop, claiming 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place at the end of the night. Quiz started strong, with three teams using their Joker in the 2nd round, confident in their ability to hear past the angsty growl of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. All other teams held out until the other 16 point round, round eight. It was a fairly close race between our top five teams all the way through this thing. Here are some

Something, something, 420 aka QFAC PP edition
Pete Rosky

We did it again, but this time for a cause bigger than my ego. We cracked the TEN team mark and had a raucous night at Trifecta on 3rd. We had teams inside and out, and I was at my absolute loudest to accommodate. You see, last night we held a Quiz for a Cause event to raise money for Planned Parenthood, a cause that is under fire now more than ever and especially in Texas. So, we raised a good amount of money, and of course, we played pub quiz! Once we worked out how to reach maximum volume without blowing out speakers and ear drums, we were off to the races. Round one brought out the dirty minds of a few teams, asking “how far down?” when I announced, “All

Sweet Yeezus
Pete Rosky

Greetings from Trifecta on 3rd, in beautiful Austin Texas!  This week saw the triumphant return of team Kanye 2020, a name I hope isn't prophetic. In a six team battle royale, they took their time, picked their spots, and saved that joker for a come-from-behind win that shocked the Potent Potables, and everyone else but me really.  The Ye's, as I'll now be referring to them, have proved themselves a force to be reckoned with. They play smart, they play together, and they play to win. Second place went to The Whistling Song from Kill Bill Vol. 1,

I Love You, Man
Pete Rosky

Paul Rudd is a handsome sonofabitch. You know it’s true, don’t try and hide your feelings. He is also a pretty good singer, as we learned in Round 7 of last night’s quiz. People did pretty well, proving my point that everybody loves this man. He’s a national treasure.   Quizzers were once again very forgiving when I stumbled explaining (and understanding) Round 3: Putting the Plot Together. I was about to give up, when it clicked, and the crowd was thrilled to join me in understanding this clever round. People did well, some of them bold enough to get two points per question.   I was surprised how well everyone did in Round

Week Two: Electric Boogaloo
Pete Rosky

I promise not to count the weeks I'm at Trifecta, it's lazy titling, but the opportunity to reference "Breakin'", the greatest break dancing film series of all time, was one I couldn't pass up. Anywho, this week was a lot less insane than the last, with a modest five teams of fierce competitors. The teams were in great spirits, attentive, and really working to answer the real head-scratchers, a lot of which were from round eight. The audio rounds encouraged sing-alongs, and the bonus questions were attempted by all teams. We even had a team show up mid-game and still not come in last!  I finally got to try the pizza, and let me tell you it didn't disappoint. The margarita is the

Pete Rosky

Greetings Quizzers. I’m the newest (I assume) Quizmaster, Pete. I’ve had some training from some of the best Geeks Who Drink Austin has to offer, and was lucky enough tonight to take over an amazing bar from one of them, Kavi. Trifecta on 3rd, what can I say? I was hoping for a decent crowd, but 13 teams? I didn’t even know we could fit that many teams in this pleasantly petite watering hole. I stand corrected, y’all came, you saw, you quizzed. I’m sure I was a little shaky at first, it’s a daunting responsibility to be a Quizmaster, let alone replacing an icon like Kavi, but you were with me through the whole thing. I’m grateful

One Week at McCool's
Kavi Kardoshian

Well, Trifecta, I'm sorry to say that I must leave you. It's been real, but next week I'm moving away to the frigid northeast, never to be heard from again. I leave you in good hands, though! Never fear! Austin is full of crackerjack Quizmasters who will take that Trifecta quiz and run with it, ensuring you a good time every week with plenty of wins to come. Last night, your gorgeous bartenders made me a couple of very dirty ("skanky") martinis that really hit the spot. You know what didn't hit the spot, though? The guy outside Trifecta who stole my parking space. What an effing dickhead. I was driving around looking for a place to park, as usual, when I spotted an

It's Not Your Fault Your Parents Were Cousins
Kavi Kardoshian

I've been rewatching Arrested Development lately. No reason. I just had a craving for it, I guess. Do you remember how bad the last season was? The one that Netflix put out exclusively? It was bad. But Charlize Theron was awesome in season three. And speaking of her, if you don't know about her family background, let me tell you. It's insane. Apparently Charlize Theron's father was horribly abusive. So her mom killed him. Isn't that crazy? Also, I'm telling you this without doing any research whatsoever to confirm. Not even Wikipedia. I think I just heard it on the radio. But I'm pretty sure it's true

I Can't Love a Man with Three Hands
Kavi Kardoshian

Hey, Trifecta! Tonight's Round Seven was all about the film career of the late Bill Paxton, who died rather unexpectedly this weekend due to surgery complications. We featured eight of his more (and less, I suppose) notable and recognizable movies in our second audio round of the night, but we skipped out on one that I think deserves a mention, at least in the blog. In 1991, Bill Paxton co-starred in a movie called The Dark Backward. It was written and directed by Adam Rifkin, who later directed Detroit Rock City (about the kids who try to sneak into the KISS concert) and wrote Small Soldiers, which I'm sure no one actually saw. The

Papal Goons
Kavi Kardoshian

You think the young pope has papal goons? I bet he's swimming in 'em. Olivia Pope is a papal goon. Speaking of Olivia Pope and other ladies, I feel like the quiz at Trifecta last night was mostly women. I am so down with that. I know Geeks Who Drink's primary demographic is progressively minded, college-educated women between the ages of 26 and 35, but I still see mostly dudes at mine most weeks. I like that all these ladies come out to Trifecta and drink whiskey and eat pizza. Somehow, though, the team that won was still almost all guys. Meh. Who needs 'em? I've been sitting around watching Seinfeld all day instead of working. It all started because

Four-Letter Names That Are a Little Bit Different
Kavi Kardoshian

Tonight, Trifecta, we celebrated all things Goo. When the Goo Goo Dolls classic song "Slide" came on during Round 2, I was hoping you all would be as excited about it as I was, and you delivered. It's such a good song! It's no "Black Balloon", but it's damn near as great. As I mentioned during the quiz, "Slide" was the first song I ever requested on the radio. The station was 104.1 KRBE in Houston and I think I was about eleven years old. They read my name on the radio, which was extremely exciting especially considering they pronounced it correctly, and they also read the name Tara, who was apparently someone who had requested the same song around the same time.

I Love You But You're Freaking Me Out
Kavi Kardoshian

We had a packed one this week, Trifecta! Thanks for coming out and turning the place into a full house, even if it was a rather loud full house. I'd rather turn my speakers up than have an empty room and I loved seeing so many people get competitive about the quiz. Special shout-out to Pussy Power, who were all dressed very nicely and told me after the quiz that the reason they were dressed so nicely is that they had all just come from work at the DA's office down the street. What do these ladies do in the DA's office? Why, they work on domestic violence cases, putting shitheads in jail for doing shitty things. HUGE THANK YOU to those women for doing

A Swastika and a Pile of Poop
Kavi Kardoshian

Oh hey, Trifecta quizzers! This morning, while working from home for my day job, I finished watching the first season of Scream, the MTV series. You know, based on Scream the film series. Let me tell you. It's so hard not to watch. I'm not going to tell you it's a good show - by all practical measures, it is not. The writing definitely leaves something to be desired, and it's a bunch of mostly early-20-somethings acting, so they're not exactly great. One of them is. Most of them aren't great. But look: Everyone on the show is pretty, there's a ton of drama and people get murdered on like every episode. Plus these kids
