Blasphemy and Baseball
Pete Rosky

Fuzzy’s Tacos! Where have you been all my life? So, full disclosure, this is only the third venue I’ve ever hosted alone. That being said, Fuzzy’s is fucking AWESOME. The enthusiasm of the quizzers, the laughs, the politeness even in the cutthroat bonus questions… it was exceptional. But enough about my fun, let’s talk about the quiz! We had 11 teams tonight and it was a tight race to the finish line. That said, first place never missed a step, and dominated their competition. The Megans took first, while right behind them in second place was The Witch Hunters. Kudos to those teams, but the winner of best name of the

Please, Don't Scare Me Like That!
Metal Gretel

If there is one thing I've learned as a frequent player of geeks, it is that you MUST follow the online stuff. They give out an answer of the day. It is sometimes super helpful and other times... well... it will help someone else. Last night it was such an occasion where a team got to help themselves to a nice disturbed stare from yours truly. During Round 6, I hadn't even read question 8 yet. All of a sudden they are turning in their sheet. I figure they were getting ready to leave (which was weird cause they play all the time) I didn't think much of it until I glanced at the sheet and saw they had the answer before I even read the question.  WAIT WHAT. What is this sorcery?!

I Can Be Your BackPack While You Run
Amber

Happy May the 4th! So happy to be back subbing for Alyssa at Fuzzy’s! This place is the greatest. It really is! The staff is lovely and amazing, the margaritas are huge, and the food is affordable and delicious. So wouldn’t it be just the way of things that the day before I host this quiz I find out I can’t eat carbs anymore. Seriously! I’m not just being a gluten-free hipster, I really am not supposed to eat carbs anymore, by order of my doctor. Does she not realize I live in Texas??? I NEED MY TEX MEX. Guess it’s going to be tamales and corn tortillas from here on out…corn tortillas are carb free, right? Well, we’re going to pretend they

What's a Nubbin?
Metal Gretel

Vampire Nubbin made me wonder tonight... What on earth is a vampire nubbin? Is it a weird third nipple that you suckle upon? Is it something else? I really can't imagine it being something else... So as far as I'm concerned that is what it is. We had (of course) one team who had a terrible name, they know who they are... I think you should throw your team name in an oven brosephs. The Grads Who Drink should probably stick to the books... And all of you need to brush up on your olympic events! It's fine though. I don't know MOST olympic events so it's not actually a big deal. I'm so happy you guys came out tonight! Having 15 teams nearly packed the house. Tell all your friends

And God Said "Let there be sexual education!"
Metal Gretel

It's a wild place we live in. Texas is ranked FIFTH in highest teen pregnancy rates. That's pretty high. I know we like to do things bigger and badder in Texas, but TEEN pregnancy?! Jesus. It shocks me to think that people think so backwards here, but it is what it is. THAT is why establishments like Planned Parenthood exist. To educate the masses! To provide health care for those who can't afford it! To test for STDs, to check for cancer, Pregnancy Testing, and SO MUCH MORE!!!  Tonight we had a mini fundraiser for our local Planned Parenthood and we raised $133 including paypal donations! We accepted money to play terrible music, AND EVEN less money to change the music. How wonderful!

Cheaters Never Win!
Metal Gretel

It always shocks me that a team can stay off their phone the whole quiz and then during their tie breaker allow someone at their table to use a phone! HOLY TOLEDO! To risk it all at the end is such a waste! I told y'all... I see everything. So congrats to our second place team, Clams.  What a wonderful time we all had despite that mishap at the end! It was so nice to be on mic again since last week y'all know I was out being super sickly and coughy and gross. Yes, I stopped by pre quiz last week to make sure my sub was all set up and she was! She even convinced me to stay for a drink even though I probably shouldn't've. I was told there's a lot of vitamin C in margaritas. Whether

You Can Have Anything...As Long As It's a Corona
Amber

I’m sorry, I still can’t get over the drinks I had last night. A margarita. With a damn champagne bottle stuck in it. Five dollar nachos. How are you people not here EVERY NIGHT. Where has this quiz been all my life??? This is Amber, filling in for Alyssa who was out with the Outbreak monkey virus, who was filling in for Pax, who just had her beautiful baby. That’s right, Geeks Who Drink has an unlimited supply of cute chubby girls who love top 40 hits and zombies. In other words, YOUR DREAM GIRL. So much better than manic pixie girl- would she surprise you with the box set of Lost or play Borderlands 2 with you? Think not. She’d just do a weird dance while

Vagina.
Metal Gretel

I don't know what it is about dudes that make them mildly uncomfortable with words like "vagina" and "clitoris" or "uterus." These are things that should--in theory-- be tought in generic biology classes. They are things that exist *gasp* and should be used properly, in my ungracious opinion. So for whatever reason last night, you the crowd were wonderful when the vagina round came up. You're all adults! You just sat there and listened intently, answered with intention, and enjoyed the vajokes I made when answers came around. What I did not understand was the stray man staring at me with some shock and gross perversion on his face when I said the word "clitoris." Excuse me? You've

Class of 2005
Metal Gretel

What a treat last night was for me! Out of random happenstance, My most favorite teacher EVER was at quiz for a hot minute! He was such a great teacher and I'll tell you why.  Not only did he give me extra work and make me actually try in school, he let me take naps in my off period. What teacher keeps a recliner in the computer lab? That guy. And he's a better person for it.  Not only did he let me take naps in his class and other off periods, he also inspired me to travel as much as possible. When I told him that I was going to Austria for the first time ever, he gave me some of his old travel books. They actually came in handy as well! I can't believe it

Tiny Human Substitute
Metal Gretel

HELLO ALL!!! I'm Alyssa! A lot of you are super familiar with me because I'm the regular sub here at Fuzzy's or literally anywhere around town because I manage to get around. I sub almost everywhere. This current block of time I'm only floating around to two places due to my school schedule.  So Pax decided to get pregnant and shit and then actually HAVE the baby because she totally wanted it (which I fully support, I'm not a monster). There's a plan in place that if anything happens to her I get her wedding rings with the caviat that I have to marry her husband and raise her child to be smart and an advocate for civil rights and shit. I'm a little fuzzy on the details but

The One Where I Made Them Make Sad Noises to Stroke My Ego
Pax

Well, my darlings, tonight was my last night to host before my maternity leave. Next week officially begins the temporary reign of Queen Alyssa. She's long term subbing for me until I get the baby thing under control and can leave my house long enough to host again... or. I guess, until I can't even anymore and just REALLY need a good excuse to get paid to get drunk and adult once a week. Geeks Who Drink is more than just another job or another company. Here in Austin, we are a community. I showed up to my last hosting gig and there were GIANT FREAKING PRESENTS waiting for me!! The other local quizmasters had pulled together and gotten my baby some VERY NICE gifts! I am so overwhelmed!

The One that Killed My Hipster Cred
Pax

I live in Austin, Texas. I have a weird asymmetrical hair cut. I wear quirky glasses. Words like artisan, local, and craft make me wet. I'm definitely a hipster. Oh, and also, I love Coldplay. DON'T YOU JUDGE ME!  So, I was thrilled that, at my second to last quiz before maternity leave, there was a WHOLE CHRIS MARTIN OF COLDPLAY COVERS SONGS ROUND!  I feel like this was a penultimate quiz parting gift from corporate and a reminder of why I MUST return after I recover from being a milk slave. Thank you Quiz Gods. Thank you. So, on this penultimate quiz, what did we learn? There were no Ewoks in 'Star Wars'.

My venue, Fuzzy’s Tacos, now has CHICKEN FREAKING FRIED FREAKING STEAK FREAKING TACOS. Chicken Fried Steak + Potatoes + Mild Verde Cream Gravy + cheese + flour tortilla.   WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.     I can’t even be mad.

The One with Some Movie with Julia Roberts
Pax

Quiz this week was particularly delightful to me, content-wise.  I grew up SUPER conservative baptist and was very religious when I was younger.. I was trained to own Round 6 my entire childhood.  Own it I did. Well, I mean, I would have, had I been allowed to play. It was one of the only rounds I’ve ever read where I knew the answers before I read them.  Now, as an apostate, I was DELIGHTED by the round.  I was, however, surprised at how few of the Geeks tonight nailed this one. (Pun intended). I was further surprised when several of you thought that Jesus’s tale took place in… the 20th century…. uh…..no.

I'm a MotherFeather StarBoy
Metal Gretel

For whatever reason, I completely know why, I've had this song "starboy" stuck in my head. It came up on my way to quiz, it may have played during quiz, and I definitely heard it on my way home from my day job to write this blog.  Last night pre-quiz there was some young star child wandering around the restaurant. She kept wandering up to the table so like any woman who cares not for children, I taught her a trick. This kid might as well be 1-2 years old maybe. I don't know. I can only guesstimate adults well. She kept staring at me so I put my hand up. She stared more. I just want a high five kid. SHEESH. So I make a clap-ish motion. Then I point to my hand. She stares more.
