"Come" is a Versatile Word
Tina the Bold

It was another packed Wednesday night at Sloan's, and Danielle was rocked!  I pu on the tunes of the last decade in Hip-Hop and we got to dancing and the tapped all the energy for the Quiz.  Let's quickly review those score before the Apple products kill me again. When I was a child, the NES had that wonderfu fidget game we called "Tetris".  I was learning Russian, and I was convinced that perfect scores would give a message from the U.S.S.R. in Cyrillic.  Yes, I'm old.  But on the up-side, my 10th birthday was to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall, and I enjoyed a cake with candles on an airplane... and got to take my brother into the cockpit

Nobody's Day was Worse than Caesar's.
Tina the Bold

I think we covered just about every topic last night, from Acid trips and door melting experiences, to the absolute horror of the Khmer Rouge; from dancing with Thom and Beyoncé, to Dragon Fire and Dire Wolves.  When I explain the Quiz to outsiders, they probably think I’m crazy.  Alas, this is exactly what makes a Wednesday so phenomenal!  We laughed to fake Chewbacca tunes and discussed the quality of fine literature during the Cold War.  And to remind everyone:  a number of us danced with Thom to Beyoncé, and it was liberating. It’s been a rough week for a number of us, so let’s start this with sending all the positivity and

The Saddest Feature of GOT is its Total Lack of Duck Tales
Tina the Bold

Wow!  It was another packed house at Sloan’s this Wednesday, and it makes me so happy to see so many Geeks ready to Drink.  We addressed the cheating issue of last week, and because we are so old… I am glad to note that you are all approved to have a cell phone out on the table because YOU ARE ALL PLAYING WITH INTEGRITY.  Or playing with a beer.  That being said, when the bar is full, it is loud, and we hit a record 31 repeats during the Quiz.  Alas, one can’t win it all.  What can we win?  Conversations about gender, sexuality, and how seeing red is a reminder of what people can do for people.  We are nothing without respect and each

Never Tell Me Again: "He burnt a doughnut."
Tina the Bold

Woo-woo, Wednesday!  It was another packed night at Sloan’s, and we began the night with a new Beer Sponsor and a lot of awesome energy.  We were reminded about how long ago iTunes came into being, and learned who did and did not participate in Amnesty International during High School.  Everyone was exposed to my deep love of “Notting Hill” and my deep loathing of Quiz cheats.  And to that last point, this was a rare Wednesday.  I have only had to address cheaters a few times in Geekdom, and I thank you all for helping handle it positively.  While this is a sometimes challenging drinking game, it is predicated on integrity.  It is widely

German Chocolate Remains the Best, and We Gnome Your Monty Regardless!
Tina the Bold

What a Wednesday!  This Quiz rocked, and with a full house we proceeded to crush it.  Was it the promise of snowy days that kept everyone at Quiz?  Is everyone amping up for Geek Bowl  XI?  Or was it that super delicious chance at the Odell Brewing tour, with a day of tasting all those Northern Colorado beers compelling us all to enjoy the drinks that come with Geeks?  Well, I know I’m excited about all of those options!  Deme was the ultimate winner of the Odell prize, and he will be setting that date post Geek Bowl—if he’s real lucky, his team will win Geek Bowl too!

Remember: NEVER Shake a Baby
Tina the Bold

This Wednesday’s Quiz began with a fantastic meeting with Ton from Odell Brewing in Fort Collins.  Next weeks’ Beer Sponsor drawing will have the absolute coolest prize, so I encourage you to drink all the 90 Schilling, all the Runoff Red, and enjoy the thrilling chance at a full VIP tour of the brewery, complete with shuttle service and a mini tour of the beer of northern Colorado.  I can’t even win this, and I am so excited to see who gets the prize!  If you ever need an excuse to drink delicious Colorado beers, this is one heck of a motivator.  So cross your fingers and raise your pints—we are set to have a group of happy campers next week!

Fievel and the Pursuit of Deez Nuts
Tina the Bold

This week had so much crazy-stupid going on that it was a breath of relief that greeted all of us with the Quiz.  The final kicker?  We caught Deme on a Birthday Quiz—despite his attempts to obscure it, we finished the Quiz with a rousing “Happy Birthday”.  Now, mind you, I’m finally coming off the incessant colds, so singing in a microphone was a real struggle.  Thankfully we had a number of teams to sing along… and so Deme had no choice but to smile and drink whisky.  I received a few updates regarding the Mousekewitz family and the concern for detained refugees.  We can confirm that there are plenty of cats in America,

I Was Forced to Use a Hashtag More Than Once
Tina the Bold

Just a general question:  has anybody else been catching every cold and flu this season?  I’ve caught myself wondering how this season has ransacked my immune system.  Perhaps I was lucky over the last decade, and now it’s simply time to catch up?  Is this my proverbial just desserts for not getting a flu vaccine, or is this my chance to appreciate the weird weirdness of Robotussin and DayQuil?  Well, suffice to say that I look forward to beer and whisky.  It feels super strange to host the Quiz with a cup of hot water in my hands. While that freezing drizzle coated everything under ice, we took the Quiz by storm.  Thom was back in town

My Bartender is Cooler than Yours!
Tina the Bold

Does anyone dare to contest the super radness of Krystal?  If you’re in doubt at all, take a moment to appreciate her new diamond spider tattoos.  Or, come on in an inquire about her not-black eyeshadow… or her excellent Manhattans.  We have an excellent bartender at Sloan’s, and it is a great benefit to all of us. In a rare moment for our beer sponsor prizes, we awarded one in abstentia.  With five back-to-back tickets drawn, Eric was the winner of the Green Flash drawing.  He will come into a neon Green Flash sign—which should make his home bar, his garage, or his man cave über cool.  We host a sponsor every month, and Eric

If Only Trump Had Something Other Than a Balding Head
Tina the Bold

It was one of those long Wednesdays where I caught myself almost dreading the Quiz.  In a life of hectic bartending, every moment on one’s couch is a coveted and sacred moment.  But I perked back up, and we hit the ground running tonight!  Mick even stayed to play the Quiz, and we had our own Mayor of Poundtown crushing it despite feeling a little under the weather.  With round one, I was already giggling:  to think of Syria and Jordan speaking Hebrew, and to fly into Jesus-H-Christ Airport… maybe in an alternate Universe, but not today… alas.  We kept the music to those two-decade old tunes of magic known as 90s Pop, and were soon all casually

And Remember, Stella: If You Sniffle and Slander Enough, You Too Can Become President.

As it seems to be lately, I came to Quiz after yet another cold/flu thing.  Here’s a simple survey question for everyone:  Did anyone get a flu shot this year?  If so, does it seem to keep anything at bay?  Well, at least on a Wednesday, I can guarantee that Krystal makes a delicious and reviving Hot Toddy!  Let’s hear it for the gentle gifts of a bartender on these cold nights when all else seems so far away. And so the Quiz began— as it always will— with a smile and some cheer for everyone.  It was Stella’s 3rd Birthday, and it was wonderful for everyone to greet her with smiles and joy.  I hope she remembers

We Are So Critical With Our Feedback.
Tina the Bold

Let’s start by noting that we had a gorgeously snowy night with this Quiz.  Driving?  Hope you all were safe!  Walking?  Was it just a wonderful delight?  We could all feel the deep chill every time the door opened, but it was just so dang pretty.  This Wednesday was my little sister’s Birthday, and she got a spectacular winter snowfall for a treat!  For something strange, let’s note that NO TEAM JOKERED Round Two.  On my end, that looked really weird—we had plenty of high scores, and not a single Joker.  I can understand how bleak the Quiz appeared, as we started with critiquing Mariah Carey and moved into playing

Art Museums Are, Arguably, Public Libraries
Tina the Bold

WHAT A QUIZ!  I cannot recall a Quiz wherein two teams scored a perfect score of 96!  What kind of magic came together to make this happen?  We had a few new players and a lot of silliness; the Quiz started with the Year in Stuff, so it was a contest of memory for many of us.  By round two, Deme suggested that Nickleback play at Geek Bowl… it was a low enough point that we took a shot to level it all out.  I stand by my statement that “Nickleback” is never the answer—and I thank you all for amending the band’s name with dick drawings.  While Schafer, Maggie, and Greg learned that this Quiz thing is a bit

What Does Santa Smell Like?
Tina the Bold

Wow!  2016 is sliding into a fast close, and while we all await the changes of 2017 with a mix of fear and incredulity let’s enjoy this final week with a beautiful sense of awe for the Yuletide.  One way to start this is to welcome Macaque on the Shelf back to 1st place after a more challenging Quiz.  For all who fell scant points behind, bear in mind what I warned:  “Nickleback” is NEVER the answer.  Maybe try an alternative in the future, and stick to sweet “Die Hard” references.  Or take a moment to regroup and drink some whisky.  Whatever works for you and your team will leave us all with a better

Welcome to another awesome Wednesday at Sloan’s!  We made record time, and come teams simply crushed rounds.  To Ashley and Morgan:  you both are so on-point!  Congratulations on another clean sweep for 1st place.  To Krystal:  your Hot Toddy making skills are so delicious.  To J.R.:  I’m glad your parents used bourbon to cure all your ailments, and it’s too funny that it took until college for you to realize that people actually drink and enjoy whisky.  So with my cold in tow, and with a warm drink in hand, the Quiz began.   Also, when was the last time we played Classic Rock all night long?

Is a New Laptop or ALL THE SCOTCH a Better Answer?
Tina the Bold

*A note to all:  thank you for your patience as I struggled in the land of electronics.  My Sony Viao is, ahem, a 2007 piece of doom and destruction.  It's practically a dinosaur, and almost lit on fire.  They don't even sell those battery packs any longer.  Luckily, I could find a way to coax it into life-- I might be an ancient lap top whisperer, and my services can by purchased for a fee and with a lot of colorful curses.* Whew!  This has been a busy start to the Festive Season, and I can’t begin to explain how nice it is to sit down and do the Quiz.  Sloan’s is all cozy and cute with the ornaments delicately hung; everybody is
