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

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.

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
Uncle Bobo

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. One of us...One of us...One of us...One

Bindi Irwin is NOT a Prime Minister
Tenacious E

Tonight I subbed in for Nick and let me say what an awesome venue this is! It was busy but fun. The food looked incredible and you truly can't beat a coffee shop that serves beer. We had a few teams playing and they all came to win! We learned tonight that you guys love a good pun so round 1 went over amazingly. We however lost a bit in our first audio round. Everyone thinks that This Is How We Do It is actually called Friday… weird.   Thanks everyone for not throwing stuff at me and being amazing in general. This is how you guys did: 1st: Res-Erection 2nd: A

Game ON!!!
Uncle Bobo

We totally did it, you guys. It was St. Patrick's Day, but we had a great group of quizzers anyway.  It was snowing tonight, but still the Geeks came down to quiz.  But that was the easy part... Then some weird power-surge (I assume) caused my computer to blink out and re-start, and when it did, it started automatic updates, putting us well behind schedule.  Still, we soldiered through to make tonight a quiz night.  And then I realized that the same surge that caused my computer to freak fried my mixing board.  All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't get the fucking thing to power on again. And even then, lacking power to the mixer

Oh, The Things We Learn
Uncle Bobo

There are all kinds of things that we learn, week to week.  Like this week - we may have learned that Bess Truman was the longest-lived first lady.  Or maybe we learned that Jimmy Stewart was in The Shop Around The Corner.  But there are other things that we learned tonight, things that new teams will not soon forget; the biggest of these is: WE ARE NOT FUCKING AROUND when it comes to the rule of only 6 quizzers on a team.  In what I think is a first here at Rooster & Moon, not only did our FIRST PLACE TEAM Capitol Punishment get disqualified for too many players (8), our SECOND PLACE TEAM, Spock, was also DQd.

Undecided
Uncle Bobo

Apparently, we had a team that couldn't decide if they wanted to play or not.  Joke was on them, once they decided to drop out - WE HAD A BLAST TONIGHT. This was one of those quizzes where we saw some massive jumps in the standings in round 8, and I always think that is fun.  Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that our winner tonight, Chapped Asses in Assless Chaps, were actually wire-to-wire winners, but for the other teams, total dark horses.  And let's not forget our random bonus prize winner.  The L Word walked away with a sweet prize just for being awesome.  Or being here.  Same thing.

Hail to the Chief, Baby
Uncle Bobo

Thanks to the first 17 possible point round I've ever seen in my many ears of Geekin' it up, plus the 16 possible point round 3 (plus a bunch of Geeks as smart as they are sexy) we had some wicked high scores tonight.  I'm not going to lie, I was pretty impressed with everyone's performance, especially in round 3.  Not a single team waited to hear the extra clues. You guys NAILED it. You set the bar high for next week, I'm excited to see you all back here to defend your amazing performances.

Night Terror
Uncle Bobo

You know what makes for a scary feeling? When you finish the quiz and your computer just strait-up stops working.  And you have a bunch of files stored on that computer, and you can't access them. Cold sweats, my friends, cold sweats. I managed to get the key information lifted from the old tech wreck, and my main man is taking a look at things in an attempt to get it back to usable. But enough about my problems, and more about the GREAT NIGHT we all had at the quiz on Thursday.  It was totally great.  And I've got a great feeling about next week.  I hope to see you all soon, so that I can congratulate you on your (certain) success on your performance

Crack in the Smoothies
Bob with a J

There must have been something stronger than caffiene in the coffee, because the joint was jumping last night. And not in a bad, elbow-to-elbow, yell to talk to your neighbor kind of way. It was, dare I say, fun! And every time I got on the microphone, an eerie silence descended on the crowd, as if I was... some kind of god. Welp, that went to my head fast.With regards to our round seven - This Round May Contain Nudity - I realized that I never fulfilled my promise to strip for you during the round. I wouldn't want to disappoint you, so I went ahead and uploaded a (PG-13) strip routine to youtube. Hope you enjoy!

What Are We Watching
Uncle Bobo

It's funny to extrapolate, from the answers submitted for the quiz, what things our noble quizzers are watching.  For example, they seem to all have a pretty firm handle on Geena Davis movies.  They seem to have a strong understanding of movies where a character is dying.  They do not, however, seem to be watching AT ALL Sarah Palin endorse Donny "The Dick Trumpent" Trump for POTUS. I can't say that I'm surprised by that. Great night tonight.  We gave out (as we always do) prizes for first place Mike Tyson's Donkey Punch Out, second place I Was Told There Would Be Porn Here? and third place Trevor the Cockroach,
