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. SNEEZY CURSORY QUIZ RECAP *sniff* correct answers all contained cuts of meat (huh, who

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.

Only Scrubs Call The Song "Scrubs"
A.

Pimlicans, Good to see your faces last night. uHosting quiz is one of my favorite parts of the week, and I needed it yesterday after a long day at the old day job. We had all the regulars back from the holidays and it was wonderful. Quick note, right up here at the top: there will, once again, be no quiz at Pimlico next Monday, 1/23, because the bar is hosting an event. So—if you show up for quiz, you’ll be disappointed. Notable incidents last night: Casey turned 30, and one of her teammates on Taco Fest informed me (with much glee) that we should embarrass her by making a big fuss about it, so of course, that’s what

Sorry I Was Mean To Attorneys You're Actually OK I Promise
A.

Pimlicans, First, happy new year! It was great to see all of my favorite quizzers again after a week off. We packed the inside of Pimlico with eleven teams last night—and that’s not even our final form. I’m sure a numer of regular teams will be back next week nursing holiday hangovers. Unrelated: a football game happened last night. If Clemson can win, maybe the Texans can pull one off this Saturday against the Patriots. lol nvm thats dumb CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: Keyboard variants, Dave Matthews covers *shudder*, sooner or later actors on current TV shows, sacks/phones/saxophones,

Boxing Day?
A.

Pimlicans, Twas the night  after Christmas, and all through the bar, Drinks were being stirred, and, I don’t know, geeks were drinking and doing quiz. I’m pretty  bad at writing poems. It was good to see y’all after our sub-tropical Houston Christmas. I hope that all of you had a restful and peaceful holiday. Next weekend is New Years! Yay, 2017 is almost here! Special note: we are not going to have quiz next Monday, January 2, 2017. Enjoy the new year, and we'll be back at it with quiz on Monday, January 9, for our first quiz of 2017. Thank you to the quizzers who brought me and the bar staff Christmas goodies.

It's Cold!
A.

Pimlicans, Winter has finally made it to Houston, Texas. As it was so chilly, I was surprised to see twelve teams brave the cold and huddle for warmth inside Pimlico for a couple hours to play quiz. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP: Answer begins/ends with same letter as question, artist initial state capitols (or is it capitals? Too lazy to check), two of these thing don’t belong, Alan Thicke, holidays, nativity/marsupials, streaming shows by theme song, and finally, as always, random knowledge. END CURSORY QUIZ RECAP. We had some extra special prizes for y’all tonight—an awesome gift from Buffalo Bayou Brewing that included some brewery passes,

Hey, is that a...
A.

Pimlicans, I’ll admit, one of the more interesting things to happen at quiz recently is Barb bringing a picture of a tasteful sideboob to show to Tasteful Sideboob—one taken at Willie Nelson’s ranch, a long time ago, no less. That was a pretty neat start to quiz. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Current events, some Song of the Year Grammy winners, Justin Trudeau/Jesus, John Glenn, Christmas toys, poorly-named food, HO- movies, and as always, random knowledge. We had seven teams competing at the end of the night, and second and third place were pretty close together, but AWAP ran away with it. See

A Long Term Investment Strategy That Paid Off
A.

Pimlicans, Good to see y’all last night. Thanks for braving the cold to make it out to our quiz. I saw a couple new faces/teams—come say hi next week! Regardless of what you’ve heard, I’m usually pretty nice. It got pretty cozy inside Pimlico last night with nine teams playing. CURSORY QUIZ RECAP Correct answers begin with “ha,” shittyflutes— Okay I’m going to interrupt your regularly scheduled quiz recap to just say: oh my god shittyflute was not a misnomer at all my ears are still ringing thank you for begging me not to play the mixed together answer clips I love you —popular Christmas songs

Stamen, not Stigmata. That's something else.
A.

Pimlicans, I write this to you from the delightful confines of a car dealership. Getting my oil changed. Being responsible, you know, like an adult or something. We had lots of interest in quiz last night, and ended up with 11 teams that played all the way through. We’re going to be one of only two Monday night venues in Houston starting next week, so let’s get ready for the influx of newcomers. Maybe. We’ll see. Be nice to them if they do come, they’re essentially quiz refugees. That was sort of tasteless. You know what is tasteful? Being honest.
