Happy Birthday to Me
Holly

Billy Idle was killing it with the bonus questions last night, but didn't quite make it to first place. Congrats to Juche Powered Vibrators who took that spot, and Speed Kills Bears for placing third.  Congrats to everyone who dressed up, you were all winners - or at least the five I liked enough to give out free drinks to. You're lucky the dog didn't show up until after the quiz, though, otherwise he would have gotten them all. And also congrats to me for not dying for another entire year. Hope to see you next week!

I'm just glad Opera vs Soap Opera wasn't an audio round
Holly

Twelve teams competing last night and it was a pretty close quiz. In the end, Sweater Puppies finished first with Drinking Squadron in second and Raiders of the Lost Snark in third. No tie breakers or sudden death rounds this time. Anyway! Next week, dress up, stick on an animal tail and come early because the quiz falls on my birthday and we're celebrating. The person* with the best outfit of the night gets a free drink**! *It will be me. **drinks

The Manchurian Candidate...
Holly

...was pretty much the only answer anyone got in Round 6. The exception being Speed Kills Bears, who took first place mainly because they were the only team not to score 1 or 2 points in that round. I knew it wasn't a good sign when I announced the round was on Jonathan Demme and you all went, "Who?" Second place went to Stephen Hawking's School of Dance and third to Sign of Two after a tiebreaker. And now that all that boring stuff is out of the way... let's talk about me! My birthday is in two weeks and falls on a quiz night - May 15th. Come out in your formal wear/animal ears and tail/some combination

Superhero Team Ups!
Holly

Thot Police and Blue Barracudas teamed up last night... not that it did them many favors. Speed Kills Bears and Introverted Whizkids also decided to join forces and that was enough to get Speed Kills Introverted Bears third place. Unfortunately, they were still no match for Diabetic Cats who took second or The Half Chubs who claimed first place in the second round and then never let anyone else approach their lead. So, I banned question repeats since I was losing my voice and yet everyone did just fine and managed to quiet down when

To everyone at the quiz last night:
Holly

I'm very sorry about Round 2. I promise it was worse for me right by the speakers. To everyone who wasn't at the quiz: why are you reading this? To Danielle: Please go claim your credit card from the bar. Don't worry about all the Amazon charges. I think I promised to wear a onesie next week? I don't know, I was in a delirious state and hopped up on cold medicine. Let's just say it's onesie night next week. It looks like onesies might be lucky anyway, judging by Speed Kills Bears' success lately. Behind them in second was Han Shot First closely followed by Blue Barracudas in third. Thank

Happy birthday to Thot Police!
Holly

Didn't quite crack the top 3, but hey, you still got free shots out of the deal. Thank you to Speed Kills Bears for leading the bar in a round of Happy Birthday and congratulations on your second place win. We had 13 teams and a lot of competition, but Blue Barracudas won basically every bonus question and then walked away with third place, barely edging out Thot Police by 2 points. Maybe if they hadn’t done so many shots… Oops. Team Beyob took first place but still didn’t explain their name to me. Is it Beyonce related? Is it about BYOB? Is Beyonce bringing

It's Official...
Holly

...this week Speed Kills Bears took Stephen Hawking's School of Dance's place as my favorite team by continuing to show up in animal costumes. But as far as actual places go, Han Shot First took third and Boba Fett Tea, with only two points more, took second. First place went to North Korea is Best Korea, which made me a little ashamed every time I had to announce the standings. Special thanks goes to the team captain of Tinderella and Her Tinderfellas for her scheme to populate her team by matching with multiple people on Tinder and inviting them

Continuing the costume theme this week...
Holly

Onesies are super comfortable, ya'll. Highly recommend. Anyway, on to the quiz! Beast Rebels of the Hellscape took first last night and second place went to Speed Kills Bears. Third place was a tie which ended up being decided by a really anticlimactic sudden death round. Not a bad send off for Introverted Whizkids as they lose two team members who have been regulars at the quiz for the past two years. Congrats on graduating but sorry to see you go. Bleu Barracudas, on the other hand, are probably less sorry to see their competition weeded out. Special shout out to Team Dick whose ever morphing

Last night, the Brit was invaded by animal onesies...
Holly

...I squatted some girls, participated in a human (animal?) pyramid, received some pretty decent Rick & Morty fanart, and, oh yeah, did some quiz stuff while I was at it. Pretty packed house and 10 teams competing. Han Solo's Homie recruited an additional team member, which was enough to move up to first place this week. Deez Nuts and Speed Kills Bears battled it out for second in a tie breaker, which went to Deez Nuts. Speed Kills Bears may have only taken third, but know you're first in my heart. Please come back in the onesies and let me squat more of you. I promise I'll do both of you girls at once! See you all next time!

This week animal hats, next week onesies...
Holly

...this is how you become a furry. Is it bad of me that I want to watch those movies with all the people that wrote the stupid reviews? All of you not unexpectedly did well recognizing the movies in that round, but I was surprised the worst round was the one on superheroes. I expected better of you. Congrats to Speed Kills Bears on their win and also their adorable animal hats. Next week, animal onesies! Second place went to Anemone's Enemies and third to Pussy Crushers. Honorable mention to Han Solo's Homie for multiple bonus question wins all by himself. See you all next week!

Quizzerella
Holly

Congrats again to Beast Rebels of the Hellscape - he didn't quite make first place this time although he did win most of the bonus questions. Speed Kills Bears barely edged him out for first (with a full team at their disposal so I wouldn't be too proud) and Introverted Whizkids took third (you should be even less proud). To the guys who were meeting up for the first time to do the quiz: that is a fantastic idea. Everyone should make this their first Tinder meeting of choice. You'd have plenty of opportunities to evaluate your date and how well you work together and I'd have plenty of opportunities to make things awkward. It's a win/win.

Congrats to Beast Rebels of the Hellscape...
Holly

...also known as that one dude in a suit at the bar, on winning last night's quiz all by himself. Good job on making everyone else feel both inadequate and underdressed. Speed Kills Bears took second and Tits + Valhalla may have placed third but at least they rocked all their Geeks Who Drink swag. I'm sure more things happened but too many people sent shots to my table last night. From the pictures it sure looks like we had fun though! Hope to see you all back next week! But without sending me shots - seriously, I have to do math, people.

Apparently I Have Terrible Taste In Music
Holly

It’s slightly demoralizing to listen to the audio round and enjoy all of the songs and then realize the round is on annoying vocals. Oh well. This quiz was close! Oddly, all the teams from 4th through 8th scored exactly 2 points apart. Third place went to Oh God, The Pressure! who managed to place by using their Joker wisely. Second place went to Speed Kills Bears and first to Alternative Facts. Not only did they win this quiz, they also recently won a whole box of Geeks Who Drink swag by answering the Question of the Day. I find this suspicious and will now be watching them closely in the future.

And Now We Don't Have Coasters Anymore
Holly

We're back on schedule with a newly refinished bar and fresh quiz supplies... which were promptly ruined by Introverted Whizkids. Between plotting to use sharp pencils as weapons and coasters as frisbees, you are the reason why we can't have nice things. Congrats to newcomers Blue Barracudas for winning almost every bonus question and taking 4th place at their first quiz. With a little more strategic Joker-ing, you're going to be some real competition. In the end, Steven Hawking's School of Dance took third place with Introverted Whizkids in second and Speed Kills Bears in first with

All These Answers Are Correct. Period.

...actually lived up to their team name more than once, including during Round 1 which was unexpectedly difficult. They took the lead and kept it, finishing in first. Speed Kills Bears took second and Introverted Whizkids placed third.   Reminder there is no quiz next week. We'll be back in February at the regularly scheduled day/time plus a shiny new bar.   Hope to see you all there!
