Faith Restored
Uncle Bobo

Talk about a bounce back!  For a while there it felt like the quiz was on life support here at Rooster & Moon.  I was starting to lose faith in our 6 year plus Thursday night staple...and then tonight it was right back into the breech.  Like seeing an old friend after an age, and picking right back up where you left off, we got right to it and quizzed our asses off. Lots of our regular suspects tonight, and three new teams popping their R&M quiz cherry.  You guys were a lot of fun (and it seemed like you were having fun...I mean, I hope you were having fun), and I am looking forward to seeing you all again next week. Same Bat-Time, same

Here We Go Again
Uncle Bobo

So... We had a quorum of teams... I was back (thanks again, Bob, for covering for me last week while I spent time at my family reunion)...  kitchen was open... beer was stocked... All and all, it feels like we are back in the swing of things.  So, here's to summer, and the quizzing and drinking that we are going to do. See you next week?

Harding's VP was not Nate Dogg
Bob with a J

...and so my watch has ended. Oh hey, didn't see you there! I was just reminiscing about my week, and the three times I've hosted quiz in the last three days. I've done this before, actually, but not for several years. It boggled my mind to think that there are people that do this 4-5 times per week, every week. More power to them, but for me, I think I need a little beer-cation. Let's talk about the teams, shall we?   DJ Tony Shalob and the Funky Monks had my favorite team name of the night, though I was disappointed there were no actual germaphobes playing.   Quiz in my Pants never

Bob has been playing Geeks Who Drink pub quizzes since 2010, and always thought quizmastering looked easy. He is in for a rude awakening.

Bob also once ripped an unopened can of coke in half with his bare hands. He would just like you to know that, in case Rule #2 comes into play.

Independence
Uncle Bobo

Only 3 teams tonight, so we only graded the visual round.  Which led to a tie, so we had some SUDDEN DEATH action.  I wanted to give all of the teams the independence to go out and find another quiz if they wanted to. We'll try again next week!  Hope to see you then.  Have a safe and happy Independence Day Holiday Weekend!

Adapt and Overcome
Uncle Bobo

We had ourselves a little kerfuffle at the quiz this week.  Kitchen closed just before show time.  Turns out that one of the cooks was celebrating a birthday.  She got off work well before the quiz and decided to do her celebrating at the Pub.  And celebrated too hard.  Hard enough to pass out on the floor of the bathroom.  So the other cook clocked out and took her home.  A noble and generous thing to do, sure, but it left the place with no food for the night. Some teams decided to head to another of the great venues that hosts Geeks Who Drink, and I can't really blame them.  But other teams displayed some adaptability and called in back-up.

Uncle Bobo

Back to normal tonight.  A room full of eager Geeks, waiting on my every question.  Having fun, drinking, quizzing it up.  Escaping the heat of Summer, preparing for what I anticipate will be a crazy weekend.  Best wishes to everyone this weekend with ComiCon and Pride Week. Be safe, have fun, and I can't wait to hear all of your crazy stories next Thursday night.

The Quiz that Wasn't
Uncle Bobo

Our second place team came in last tonight.  Since there were only two teams represented.  Must have been the Rapture.  I let the class out early so they could get their quiz on at one of the other great venues in town this evening. We'll try again next week!

Summer Nights
Uncle Bobo

I can't lie, it's days like this that I totally envy my main man Bob (who was once again kind enough to cover for my ass last week).  He is the Quiz Master at the Lowery Beer Garden on Tuesday nights (you should totally go and check that quiz out), which leads me to believe he gets to enjoy some quizzing in the open air.  Man, what a pleasant evening it was - total patio weather here in the Mile High City. And yet, despite the amazing weather, despite the Disney Quiz happening, we still managed to get a bunch of great teams out tonight.  Thank you all for being here, and a big Rooster & Moon welcome to our winners; I think it was the first time they have quizzed

Starring Nuda Vardalos
Bob with a J

By now, I estimate I've guest-hosted at Rooster & Moon, oh... about 20 times over the last 3 years? Yeah, that sounds about right. Add that to my times playing while Fearless Leader Bode hosts, and I've lost count of the number of caprese sandwiches and G.O.A.T. crostini I've consumed. And the one constant? There will always be at least one team name that makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. This week, they even made it to first place!   What do Life is a fucking horrible, pain-ridden, disastrous, shit-filled nightmare and Body By Beer have in common? Well, cirrhosis of the liver, probably. And alcoholism

SIX YEARS
Uncle Bobo

I don't know if you know this, but tonight we celebrated the SIX year anniversary of hosting Geeks Who Drink at Rooster & Moon Coffee Pub.  And it couldn't have been a better crowd for it!  Several teams new to the pub quiz experience or new to our humble little pub.  Some of our long-time regulars.  Beer (which I had a bit too much of).  It was a great night. Just another great night in a string of them going back to May of 2010.  I wouldn't do this if it wasn't for all of you, and the joy I get seeing you each week.  You are a special crowd, smarter, funnier, and I'll just say it - sexier that you know.  So thank you, all, SO MUCH for letting

Muchos Gatos
Bob with a J

Was yesterday some kind of holiday? There was something about the... festive nature of a few teams that had me considering it. Maybe something to do with sink? Or mayonnaise? I admit, those would be weird holiday topics, but I can't think of anything else. Yes, Zachary Levi may have lost his small-screen Geeks Who Drink hosting job, but I assure you Bode will be back next week! The Zodiac Killer didn't get him, despite all his free time now. Which reminds me, I threw away the last of the GWD TV show postcards that were sitting out. It may have been cancelled months ago, but someone should tell their website.   Finding

Flip the Script
Uncle Bobo

The quiz tonight was a bit different from the normal format.  Not the attendance, that was right about what we expected, and everyone was supper cool.  As usual, there was a great mix of quiz regulars and new players, and everyone was super cool.  Time, day, all of that jazz was the same.  The great staff at Rooster & Moon was the same.  Nothing different about the delicious drinks we had.  It was the format that was different.  Movies in round 2 and music in round 7?!  The assignment of points in question 8?  It was just different enough to feel weird.  Just the same enough to feel normal. Like the beginning of a horror

Quiz Like It's 1999
Uncle Bobo

Rest in peace, Prince.  You had a profound impact on music, culture, and me personally, and you will be missed, you beautiful, freaky sex-machine. Not that your untimely passing or cultural impact dissuaded some teams from cracking on your death in their names this week, but that's the way we play it on the mean streets of Geeks Who Drink. Other than that, great fun tonight.  Some close scores, and some crazy jumps all over the board.

Sad Sack
Uncle Bobo

I've been a bit of a sad sack myself myself recently.  Maybe it was because of round 2...maybe it is the weather that is supposed to roll in...probably none of those.  In any case, I had plenty of sad sack music to listen to tonight.  But I added some up tempo stuff once we got rolling. It's hard to be blue when I get to see a room full of smiling quizzers pile in at the last minute.  You guys are the best, and even though I had to disqualify one of your teams, because come on, 10 quizzers? I love seeing you here.So here's to Spring, to next week, to leaving the blues in the dust and shaking it off.  Thanks, Geeks.

Drop In, Drop Out
Uncle Bobo

Spring is in the air.  Leaves are budding, the Cherry trees are in bloom, the grass is green, and the sun is still shining when we start our quiz.  The door was propped open all night, giving us some fresh aire for tonight's event.  There was some fresh blood too, some teams dropping in for their first quiz, even if some of them dropped out before it ended.  I guess they didn't know that ANY team is eligible for a prize here at Rooster & Moon at the end of the night.  It still seems like they had fun though.  I know I did. And, OH MAN, tomorrow is the Colorado Rockies home opener!!!! How pumped am I? Very.  I'm very pumped. It

The Good Life

Man, oh man! A round about Nebraska?  How great was that?  Quick confession, though your quiz host is a Colorado native by birth, and my soul will always live in this great state, I am from Nebraska stock, and I spent a good chunk of time living there AND I LOVE IT. Go Big Red, suckers. Anyway, I want to take a second and congratulate Rooster & Moon for winning another Westword Best of Denver Award.  The issue just came out today and I saw they were named Best Coffee Shop for Getting Work Done.  So come on down next Thursday and do some work, then stick around and play the quiz with us.
