Get Well Soon, Barb!
A.

Pimlicans, Last night, we missed the heart and soul of our quiz, Barb of Namaste, Motherfuckers. She’ll be back at quiz soon, hopefully, and I hope everyone got a chance to sign the get well card. We’ll see you soon! We had a nice turnout last night, ten teams, and a totally new team—Mud Turtles, I know you didn’t do very well, but you should come back out. Everyone gets better at quiz with practice. And drinking. Practice drinking. Fun quiz all around, scores were a bit lower than I expected them to be, but you know, there’s always next week to impress me. A member of Let’s

00s R&B Night
A.

Pimlicans, We had another birthday last night! Congrats, Katie of Tasteful Sideboob. You said you didn’t want us to sing, so we had to sing, and I hate singing happy birthday. We’ve also started a new Pimlico Quiz Birthday Tradition—if it’s your birthday, I will play “Birthday Sex by Jerimih for you, with a creepy shout out and everything. No trainees last night, so I like, had to do all of my job? Ugh. Fine. Good quiz all around, only two sixteen-point rounds so scores were not stratospheric, but still respectable. Pimlico is a great place to play quiz. Sad not to see the Gyro dudes around, I

Go Rockets Go
A.

Pimlicans, Last night, we completed the initiation rituals—uh, training—of a new quizmaster. Congratulations, Jenna, you’re gonna be awesome wherever you end up. Also, Tasteful Sideboob baby onsie. Need I say more? There was, of course, a quiz last night. There was also a Rockets playoff game. Against the Spurs. Normally, this would be a huge problem for me, but Jenna was kind enough to take over right at tipoff. How convenient! I got to watch the Rockets destroy the Spurs. I had friends who drove from Houston to San Antonio (Spurs fans, obviously) drive to SA to watch the game. That is some George RR Martin

Sliced Meat Is Now Available
A.

Pimlicans, Good to see y’all last night. Hey! Pimlico has food on Mondays now! This is important. Plate O’ Gyros ran a special last night for quiz, and judging by the number of clean plates, the gyros were pretty darn tasty. They’ll be back next week, and you should be too. Thank you all for helping train Jenna, she’ll be back next week for her second night of training, and then we will release her out into the wild world of quiz to be a quizmaster somewhere. She did great! Special shout out to Round 7, which was unexpectedly hilarious and good. Also special shout out to the four random people that literally set up shop in the

Take That For Quiz
A.

Pimlicans, Ahh, Houston in the spring. Time for random torrential rainfall. We had a cozy, interior quiz, and even the runners played. (Because it was raining.) Welcome, Akash’s Platonic Friends, who are apparently new regulars. I look forward to breaking down your barriers gently until I can convince you to take me out of the friendzone. That was pretty creepy. Remember kids, like I say every quiz, consent and discretion are even more important in our new America. Props to Tasteful Sideboob for coming back and taking first from Namaste, Motherfuckers. I’ll see y’all again next week.

Happy Birthday, Barb!
A.

Pimlicans, After two weeks of very chill quiz, it was good to see most of the regulars out again, you know, the usual stuff. There was, yes a quiz, but more importantly: happy birthday, Barb! (Of Namaste, Motherfuckers, of course.) I know you didn’t really think that we didn’t remember—Wes asking you if you’d be at quiz three days in advance might have given it away, but thanks for acting mostly surprised anyway. We love you, Barb. I always feel better after a good chat with you. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Three sixteen-point rounds, some interesting joker strategy, mostly by new teams—come back next week, Holy

Buzzfeed Please Don't Plagerize This
A.

Pimlicans, Oh, was it the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game last night? Big deal. I went to the University of Texas and I can’t even, with good conscience, root for Kevin Durant anymore. You don’t want to know the college hoops pain that has made me swear off the sport. Long way of saying, I didn’t know it was the Championship game last night, which is why we had a very intimate—albeit excellent, as always—quiz last night. THINGS ONLY 90s KIDS GET Batman: The Animated Series (my mom, ever the permissive parent, asked me whether I wanted AM or PM kindergarten; I asked which one would let me watch Batman) Using

Oh, Houston Has Oak Trees?
A.

Pimlicans, What a pleasant little quiz we had last night. Very cozy. Intimate. And super quick, because you know that quick intimacy is the best kind. I mean, most of the time. Or something? Good to see some regulars back (Tasteful Sideboob, especially), sad that the Namaste, Motherfuckers! crew had to take a rare week off. See y’all next week! Shout out to Cristina for helping keep score. I made fun of all the people with horrible stuffy allergy face, and now I am one of those people. Karma.

Another Week Older
A.

Pimlicans, Good to see y’all last night. I tried to keep it a secret, but yes, it was my birthday. You can thank all my wonderful friends for crashing quiz and telling everyone. But seriously, Laura, Clayton, Cory, Brent, Cheri, and Danielle, also known as It’s My Party I Can Give Away Answers If I Want To, thank you so much for showing up. I should have known something was up when none of you texted me happy birthday. I only name them because they never come to quiz at Pimlico. The rest of you already know I love you, but I would be remiss to not mention Barb, because, well, you know I have to.

Quiz Is More Fun When Someone Else Does All The Work
A.

Pimlicans, Last night was a special night. We got to train a new QM! Billy took over the last two-thirds of quiz, and he did a great job. Thank you for treating him with the same kindness, courtesy, and appreciation that you show me. … *snort* He really was great, and took all the stuff you threw at him like a champ. He’s gonna do great. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Correct answer comic book superheroes, song title human centipede (attention powers that be: far superior round theme/title here), bad reviews of (mostly) good movies, tic-tac-no (quite a clever thing, actually, with the no XXX or OOO thing), dad movies, sopranos,

Ex-Xenophobes Anonymous
A.

Pimlicans, We had ten teams last night, and something absolutely totally one-hundred-percent unprecedented happened: (spoilers) we had a three-way. A three-way tie for first place, that is. I’ll explain how we got there after the CURSORY QUIZ RECAP. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: three-word (three again!) descriptions of movies, acrostic song titles, high payroll MLB teams (watching everyone groan but Jenna of the Thunderbitches go YES! was a highlight), answers containing phonetic fictional detective last names, which doesn’t belong, fictional and foreign presidents (sadly Trump is not fictional, no matter how many drugs I

"Deviant Art" Is Not a Famous Artist
A.

Pimlicans, Ten teams last night! Good to see so many regulars—and new faces. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP HERstory (not actually about feminist history—all the correct answers contained H-E-R), Swedish Chef covers, NYC tourist questions, questions on Malaysia, artists redone for the modern age, a round on massacres, TV shows that have lasted at least ten seasons, and finally, as always, random knowledge. Really close game last night, scores were all pretty close. First through third were separated by only a point apiece. See y’all next week! Love, Me

Heckling Serbians Are Fun!
A.

Pimlicans, Lots of new faces last night! Like seriously, half of the crowd was people that I’ve never seen before. It’s always great to meet new teams and people. Last night’s quiz was pretty dang tough, but that’s how we like it at Pimlico. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Correct answers have feelings in them (LIKE ALL OF US, MOSTLY), weird vocal riffs, more or less than 411, questions that are not about The Goonies, Ellen Page films, pandemics/epidemics/bad things generally happening (also points for “Flying Swine” as the name of a pig/bird flu mash-up; too many teams wrote in “TB” as a disease that begins with the

Nevertheless, Quiz Persisted
A.

Pimlicans, Ten teams last night! Hope that y’all managed to stay dry today. Lots of tornado warnings and stuff—you know, Houston weather 101. It seems like when one regular team shows back up (hi, Tasteful Sideboob) another one gets bronchitis (feel better, member of Thunderbitches). CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Current events, songs hated by their artists, Schindler’s List or Howard the Duck (I honestly did not know what Howard the Duck was, reading up on it was fascinating), tourist destinations/sponges (in which we learned that contraceptive sponges were not made up on Seinfeld, and also

Daniel Day-Lewis as Brendan Fraser
A.

Pimlicans, Twelve teams last night! It was a good quiz. Missed some regulars, but there were plenty others around. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Australia, covers of #1 hits, sooner or later: actors’ roles, stolen stuff and shaken stuff, cartoon rodents, half-off science round (you all still did terribly, even with the hints built in to the questions), TV shows featuring a capella groups, and finally, as always, random knowledge. There was a plague of terrible team names last night, from the annoying OK Google (which, as far as I can tell, did nothing) to the one that Pete’s team put together. I enjoyed mocking them so much

It's Good To Be Back!
A.

Pimlicans, I’m sitting at a place, writing this blog, as I often do. I think someone just got dumped next to me. That kinda sucks. They were arguing about a dog. Regardless, a quiz happened last night, for the first time in two weeks, and all the regulars were around and we had a great time. Sorry for starting on such a bummer of a thing. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP This/that, imperative mood song titles, exact 2 pts/close 1 pt, Mary Tyler Moore, movie and TV props, the American flag and alleged virgins (it was weird having questions about all of y’all in there, sorry), looped TV theme songs (delightfully annoying), and finally, as always, random knowledge.
