PBS, I Love You
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello my Geeks of Punch Bowl Social! It is so nice to see your lovely smiling faces. Thanks for coming out to play and for being my quizzers. I missed you while I was away in the great state of Washington. Sunday nights were just not the same. Trent, I had to get my own wine! Congrats on your promotion to King of the Cage. Macho Nueve, glad to see you held it down in wins. Kids at the Short Table, quiz lacks when you are not around. Next time you go to Maine, will you please bring me home a pet lady lobster? I just finished reading this book called Sex in the Sea and lobsters are way cooler than I originally thought. Roll Over,

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,

Swiping the Night Away
RESII

Macho Nueve edged out We Come to Denver for the Pizza by a mere point for victory Sunday. The two teams were running neck and neck the whole night and it came down to the very end. Shattered Blubber impressively placed third, while Cinderella Story took fourth. As quizzers learned Sunday, Tinder processes a lot of swipes per day. And by a lot, I mean a billion. The Tinder phenomenon is still wild to me: it’s basically a not-or-not app. And whereas once online dating had a stigma, Tinder has become so popular and so ubiquitous, it is seen as more than just a hook-up app (which it mainly is).

Ranking the Death States
RESII

Round Three was all about guessing the state where these people died. Which state had the best celeb deaths? Let’s take a look going from worst to best. 8. Virginia (Jerry Falwell. Nat Turner. John Wilkes Booth. George Mason. Martha Washington). The killer of Lincoln and a crazy prejudiced Reverend. Not a strong showing from Virginia.7. California (Estelle Getty. John Wooden. Eazy-E. Marilyn Monroe. Harvey Milk). In a shocker, California could’ve unveiled some higher profile deaths).6. Massachusetts (Crispus Attucks. Lizzie Borden. Emily Dickinson. Robert Frost. Paul Revere). Paul Revere is overrated. The best thing going for him is that his name has a

Things are becoming increasingly Dadaist
JamieAnderson

The Ludwig round was a good one, with both for a shoutout for Mad King Ludwig (a solid tile laying game) and a shoutout for Ludwig von Drake, who was not only Donald’s uncle, but also the great-uncle of Huey, Dewie, and Louie. Ducklore is kind of a big deal to me. Once I was applying for a job at the Disney Store and I was in a group interview with five other teenage girls. They asked us which Disney character we most emulated and why. Those boring snoozefests all said some princess or other. I said Uncle Scrooge, because I liked adventure and family was important to me. A month later, I saw all of them working there; I was unemployed. I 100% stand by

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream. 

 

 

 

 

* The Dinosaur Heresies, by Robert Bakker -- out of date now but an excellent read just to watch someone with ideas exploding out of their head shake up their field.

Is ‘Voyager’ the Worst ‘Star Trek’ Series? An Investigation
RESII

Star Trek: Voyager was identified as the worst iteration of the Treks last night. But is it? THE CASE FOR Voyager was the fourth of five Star Trek series and took place in the unexplored Delta quadrant. The show featured a female captain (the straight laced Captain Janeway) and was driven by the motivation to return to home. It’s a fine premise. But to determine if Voyager is worst, we first have to look at the shows it is against. Enterprise. The newest show. I never watched it, so I shouldn’t say anything but it had Scott Bakula, so it gets a pass. Deep Space Nine. The most different of

Another Sunday, another quiz!
Micah

I've been watching the Grammys. Decent show! Adele had her little flub... Bruno killed it... James Corden was funny.... Bey was Bey (and Blue Ivy was blue Ivy!)... fun time! And, speaking of fun times, another Sunday, and another pub quiz it was at Punch Bowl Social this week for some more Geeks Who Drink! We discussed songs and the songs they sampled, various religiions, answers containing the names of chemical elements, celebs and their famous exes, Borderlands-related things, and random knowledge! In the end, Churning Sensation had a pretty solid solo effort, finishing in third place! Finishing in the money in

Balloon Bombs of The Pacific Northwest
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

So as many of you know I have been traveling to Washington state for work often. I should say, the Pacific Northwest is really starting to grow on me. At first, I heated it because it was wet and cold and it was strange. Like I didn’t know where I was going or who anyone was and people were not bending over backwards to help me figure out which end is up. Anyway, I started making some friends. Explored Portland, wandered around Seattle, and checked out the fun towns like Sammamish and Issaquah. Hung out by a couple of lakes, ate a sushi burrito, went to Ballard. It is a cool place and If I have leave Denver, I would go to Seattle. My sister has told me a couple of times she worries about

Good evening Geeks! Macho Nueve and Churning Sensation it is good to see you and watch you compete. All night scores between your two teams were really stinking close. I was surprised for the score difference at the end of eight. Hey, next week let’s do a rematch. To all the Packer fans and Steeler fans, better luck next year. To Falcons fans, WOOT! Congrats!!! I hope Atlanta wins. Patriots fans, BOO. HISS. Your guys cheat. While we are talking super bowl, we will not have quiz on Super Bowl Sunday but, come down. Have some snacks and watch the game.

I Went On A Blind Friend Date
Kelly the Bearcat

I know, I know. I’m not Andrea. You all didn’t have to rub it in by cheering the loudest you had all night when I said she’d be back next week. Jerks. I think I’m entertaining, though, so I’m going to tell you about my day. Quick backstory: my best friend lives in Maine, and recently made a new friend through her run club. It turns out that this new friend’s best friend lives in Denver. Exactly 1 mile away from me. So obviously we had to take advantage of this weird coincidence and a blind friend date was set up. Luckily for me, she likes beer. So we meet up at a brewery (I actually picked her up because I’m the best date EVER),

Corgis Win!

It is true. All fact. Tonight, our winners were Corgi Clemency. My only regret is they were not actual corgis. I guess I am not sure how a team of dogs would do but, I learned anything from Cowboy Bebop it is Ein (the corgi) is the one that holds the crew together. Dogs, way cooler than people. As far as people go, Geeks of PBS I think you are swell. 7th Place night to see you back in the saddle. Out on a Sunday your enthusiasm for second place was awesome.

Happiest of Holidays
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello Geeks of PBS! Thanks for joining me last night for quiz. I am just as shocked as you that Busta Rhymes was trying to sell Toyota minivans as “swagger wagons”. It does seem more like something P. Diddy would do. We all know sometimes you just got to make some cash so the smell the desperation is something we can overlook. Not to be overlooked, is the lovely décor at PBS. It is so festive and the lights are lovely. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday this next week. PBS will be closed and I won’t see you again until 2017. Stay warm! Thanks for playing, Andrea

Holiday party season is in full effect
Micah

Always a fun time when the Micah and Trent Show rolls into Punch Bowl Social! This week, we had some holiday party action, so I set up shop right in front of Trent's cage! I read quiz questions, I handed out shoes... it was great! Just kidding -- no shoes for me. Just the quiz, ma'am. Just the quiz. We discussed everything from bad sports nicknames to bands with numbers in their names, and from invitations to Honest Trailers synposes, with the usual dash of random knowledge. At the end of the night, Tequila Babies grabbed second place honors, while Macho Nueve ruled the roost and took home the big money.   Happy

Good Evening Geeks! Tonight, we had a full house and a little bit of festivity. I love the holiday decor at PBS. Not only is it sparkly but, it makes it so much easier to see your lovely faces and answers. This level of excitement, makes me think I am getting a bit old. But, hey beauty and function should go hand in hand. Speaking of in hand, the first SMS was “Merry Christmas”. I liked your random guesses just as much for premature sentiment: “happy anniversary”, “hello world”, “I’m sorry”, and “got it”.

So it is true Kimchi in space is totally a thing. It happened and I like you want to know what it tastes like. Way more than I ever wanted to try astronaut ice cream AKA dusty, pink, sweet, crunchy thing. I have the rest of my night planned: Googling space kimchi and trying to buy some on the internet.

Shaq and the General!
Micah

I just saw a commercial for the General (insurance) with Shaq. At the end, Shaq asks the General for a selfie. (The General, I should note, is a cartoon.) Boy, do I love daytime TV and having weekdays off here and there. Did you know Franklin D. Azar is the official law partner of the Denver Broncos? I DID! I'm a sucker for court shows. Just watched "The People's Court", and am currently watching "Judge Mathis". "Judge Judy" is later, of course. Then, I switch over to Steve Harvey and "Family Feud". Then, I sometimes go outside for fresh air and/or sunshine. What with the sun setting at 3pm these days, probably not so much sunshine coming up in my future today. Alas. Always a fun
