End of an Era
Chels

Wow. I can’t believe it’s over. That’s so crazy. Yup, my whole GWD career has been centered around Opal’s. I have hosted at all of their locations. The Marina location was my first venue. Then I did Freehouse. I also closed that one down. Only played Africa covers the whole night. It was amazing. Then I took over Penn Field. I was so excited to do that! I had left Marina in 2013, and picked up Penn Field summer of 2014. That was the longest I had gone without hosting at an Opal’s. Everyone that works there is fantastic. And you guys, the quizzers, are all super great too! My family came out to have dinner with me before the quiz. That was nice.

Penultimate Birthday Quiz!
Metal Gretel

This was such a wonderful quiz. As it is the last time that I’ll be able to host I’m glad that we were able to get together on my BIRTHDAY of all days! It was my actual birthday! Hence why I was wearing a tiara.  We had a whole smattering of my BFFs through my time in Texas with my very first one Jill. Jill and I met in elementary school on my first or second day. I was wearing these sweet canvas American Flag shoes and she thought they were cool and we were friends ever since. Coleen I met in middle school and we hit it off. We lived in the same neighborhood so we hung out all the time. Her family took me to my very first

Just 2 To Go.....
Chels

Yup. Just 11/21 and 11/28 to go, then no more quizzes at Opal's Penn Field. It's a sad time. So bring out everyone you know! Come show everyone how much you loved your time here! We're going to have a great time these 2 weeks. Because that's what it's all about. A good time.  I always have a good time at Opals. Any location, any time. Everyone that works there is so nice. They are knowledgeable of the menu, and the booze, and everything.  Last night we had a good time! We quizzed and had a great time, like we always do! I love hosting for you guys! And QM Alyssa was there again to help me out. She's so awesome. QM Kavi was

I was back after a 2month hiatus! I missed you guys! You're so great and fun! I love hosting at Opal's. I've been doing it for a little over a year, but I've been with GWD for 6 years. The first venue I was at was Opal's Marina, then Freehouse. Now I'm at Penn Field. Opal's has been a big thing in my GWD career. I love the staff there, the owners, and the quizzers. It's such a great place! Anywho, enough of that! QM Andre stopped by to hang out with me. That was fun! With 15 teams, she had some work to do! My Dad was also hanging with us at the QM table. I didn't make him work though. Maybe just a little bit.  I quizzed

What a wonderful night we had! Ambray and myself got to see a trash panda in the parking lot, it rained all day, and I've got a TON of Gilmore Girls to watch. It was so exciting and fun to host all of you and I can't wait to see you again when Chelsea is back in action!  Last weekend we were gone in Portland,OR for QMCon which was such a blast. I got to meet QMs from across the nation. These are some of the coolest people you'll ever get to meet so if you're ever in a different city look up Geeks Who Drink!  Have I mentioned for the millionth time that The Walking Dead Theme Quiz is happening THIS WEDNESDAY...? I think I have.  REMINDER: No

Hello Opal Divine’s Penn Field!   We have taken your quizmasters. Alyssa and Chelsea have been secreted away to a safehouse in Oregon. You don’t need to know where; indeed, you won’t know where. It’s better for everyone that way. Daniel and I will keep them, safely, if not comfortably, in this secure location until the following list of demands are met:   OUR DEMANDS Firstly, we demand a truck full of cases of that delicious Bulleit rye whiskey that I was drinking all night at quiz. (oh, and some Dr. Pepper for Daniel)   We demand that the

I still can't even continue to describe how excited I am about The Walking Dead Quiz!!! Come join us. Or I could be a biter and turn you into a walker! It's kind of a big deal...   Back to quiz stuff...   WE HAD A FANTASTIC TIME LAST NIGHT! EEEeeee! QM Geraldo joined me and we had a blast. He kept breathing his smoke-y whiskeys all over the place and even accidentally spit all over me. I laughed it off. It is legitimately not even close to the worst thing to ever happen at a Quiz.

October is my second favorite month. My first Favorite is November because thats when my Birthday is (We have a quiz that day!). In the month of October  I am dressing up at EVERY SINGLE QUIZ in my various halloween costumes I've used through the years. On our quiz on Halloween I will of course reveal my newest costume (which has, TBH, yet to be determined). I totally invite all of you to join me in dressing up at any and all quizzes in October (and my birthday!). Chelsea will be back in Action in November so we are going to have as much fun as possible!  QM Gerald was such a peach to grace us with his presence, I totally baked him some cookies. I

So yeah! 19 teams came on out to pay homage to the best effing TV show ever (that isn’t Firefly) and our winning team, Team Winelords, took home $175 for their mad Time Lording skills.  Point in fact: They also took home the first place prize at the 2013 quiz, so clearly… THEY ARE SUPREME.

Longest. Day. Ever.
Metal Gretel

It was a SUPER long day for me, but this is kind of my own fault where I have to re-evaluate my life choices (but they were so totally worth it) about the things I do. I didn't get to sleep until maybe 3:15am, then I had to wake up early and go to my boring day job. BOOOOO.  After I got off work at 3, I hauled my butt over to the Rumble in the Pub!! It was such a fun time. Then I hung out there for way too long and I hustled back home to get my laptop for OUR quiz! NOW I'm hustling to get this blog out because I'm waking up at 7am and headed out to SIX FLAGS FIESTA TEXAS with one of my besties. I just need a few hours of sleep. Maybe just a few. Tonight we tested how many tacos

Santa: Worst. Boyfriend. Ever.
Metal Gretel

Santa has a weird place in my life. I figured out really early on in my life that my mom was really "santa" and no fat man was breaking into the house to deposit lavish gifts under my Charlie Brown-esque tree. I knew I still had to "be good" if I wanted any semblance of a christmas. My mom still did a good job making christmas celebrations happen, but Santa was always an empty threat. A disappointing one too. Santa could be viewed as a unique type of man. He's the one the sugar babies want. He will bestow gifts and rewards upon you when you're a "good girl." Or if you've been bad, he will make you feel like trash. Leaving coal or other combustibles in your stocking. Santas

Wow you guys, just wow. We had THE BEST FUCKING TIME last night!  It started as the amazing QM Lindsay, stepping in as my SK. QM Alyssa was off WINNING a karaoke competition! Excellent. It was also QM Kavi's bday, 29 on the 29th. Golden shower! And my lady love, Emma's BF, Maran, was in town. It was like the perfect storm of quiz. We had a blast at quiz, then we headed to Ego's for more bday fun! We sang her happy bday outside the bar. Awesome! We also had quiz! We had a round on Finland, Norway, or Sweden,

Wow, Mike, you really got me there.  I love that movie, and I love it when it's on the quiz. Spencer loves that movie too! We talk about it a lot. He was playing last night and I think he teared up a bit because he was so happy.  What fun last night!!!! About 20 teams, and Fallopian Boobs were there! I haven't seen them a long time. And they haven't used that team name in forever. Thanks for coming out guys! I'm sure Jeavon misses you too. She's all the way out in Montana, living the dream.

Over the Bra, Past 10 on a School Night
Chels

I know you guys don't get the title, so you should ask QM Alyssa. She has ALL the answers! I was back after 4 weeks, and Alyssa was back after a couple weeks too. Amazing team back together! And we had the best time. My Dad showed up, and hung out with us. He followed up the Barry Goldwater quote in Round 3 with, "In your guts, you know he's nuts." Well played Dad, well played.  We had great time back! It wasn't too hot. And there were so many dogs there. One dog, Scully, showed up with a cone on. It was super cute. Her owner let her come up and say hello to me. I was like "this dog is so cute, she wins! Everyone go home!" Libby

Free Yourself From the Tyranny of Underpants and Denim
Professor D

Y’all, jeans were probably a mistake tonight. For that matter, so were underpants. It’s freakin’ hot.   But you know what WASN’T a mistake? Coming to quiz tonight.   (Yes, excellent segue, Gerald, you totally killed that one.)   QM Anna and I tried to keep it entertaining for you, and I think we did a decent job of it! I asked you questions about the weather, about sausages, about America, all kinds of things.   Some of you thought that Wyoming had 98 Representatives in the U.S. House. I still find this idea hysterical, Wyoming as a voting bloc taking up almost twenty

Going Down in a Blaze of Glory
Metal Gretel

This weekend has been brought to you by binge eating and gluttony. Why do I say that? Because quite a few of us QMs including myself and Kavi have thrown money on the line to see if we can get fitter. Why am I doing this? Well, you've seen me on that stage. I want to look as hot as Kavi-kins does in those tights and the first step is slimming my Thunderous Thighs! I will definitely miss the grand entrance I can make when sprinting but the slimmer  ones will put me in some sexy pants that I will literally be able to can in. Confidence is everything, folks!
