Supercollider? I Hardly Know Her!!!
Eileen

Hey guys! We meet again to recap Sunday night’s Geeks Who Drink Quiz at Mother Muffs! Lets see what you should’ve learned last night. Round one, Eight Premium Questions on HBO, taught us that HBO became a thing in 1972. Round two, our first audio round, asked you guys to name the artist of the song being played for one point. For a second point you had to tell me whether or not the artist was in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Did you know that Cher is NOT a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but Linda Rondstadt is? I’d never even heard of Linda Rondstadt before last night! In round three you guys had  2 ½ minutes to name the 8 MLB teams with the

Pre-Existing Conditions Club
Eileen

Hey guys! I spent tonight filling in for Tedd at Mother Muffs for Wednesday Night Pub Quiz, making it my third Geeks event of the week! What can I say? I love my job! Lets recap, shall we? In round one, “Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes” (yep all answers started with “Ch”), we learned that Chorine, in it’s liquid form will make your eyes water, but as a gas, it WILL kill you. Round 2, Monster Mashup just asked you guys to name the two artists that we combined. A fairly easy round for you guys. Round 3 taught us that Leopards, not jaguars often eat giraffes and warthogs. Round 4, was a round about JFK. Did you know that JFK created the Presidential Medal Of Freedom? Round

Happy Mother's Day!!!
Eileen

Hey guys! Thanks for spending Mother’s Day evening with me at Mother Muffs playing quiz!! Let’s see what you should have learned! Round one was a round on words that don’t follow the “I before E” rule. All teams that turned in a round one answer sheet got a perfect score! Did you know that Beijing has 20 million residents?? Round two was a round on 8 songs and artists that top Billboard’s Greatest of All Time Hot 100  Singles. I was surprised that some teams knew the song, “Mack the Knife”. What didn’t surprise me is that no one knew that the song was by Bobby Darin. Round 3 was a sooner or later round on what states certain

I Think I Saw That In a Porno Once…
Tedd Strange

You never know what side conversations the questions presented in quiz will generate, which, to me, is part of what makes quiz such a pleasure to host.  Round 3’s “An alien from the planet Lumina recovers a sacred crystal from Spoon Island, stopping along the way to shag Earth girl Anna” prompted the outburst, “Wasn’t that a porno?” from a patron at the bar.  While I certainly wouldn’t put it past the good people on our editorial staff to throw something racy like that into the question pool, that particular tidbit came from General Hospital, which I’m a bit ashamed to admit as a grown-up that I used to watch in middle school (there

Stalagmites, Scotchgard, and Soggy Waffles
Eileen

Hey guys! Since you’re here reading this you know that this is the Sunday Night Quiz from Mother Muff’s recap! So without further adieu, here we go! Round one, was a round on helpful mnemonics. One of the questions asked, when you should you eat soggy waffles? The answer is never, and the mnemonic device Never Eat Soggy Waffles, will help you remember the directions on a compass. Where I’m from, it’s Never Eat Shredded Wheat, but I suppose soggy waffles are way more gross! Round 2, “Remember Ylvis?”, asked you to name the song title and artist that name check animals. Pretty straight forward, a good round for most teams. Round three taught us that

Can I Interest You in a Salmon Pineapple Enema?
Tedd Strange

As is typically the case, it was a hot time in Colorado City last night.  Eleven teams vied for supremacy as the top quizzers, although no one could hold a candle to Forget Condoms, Premarital Sex is the Shit, Get ‘Em Pregnant, Get ‘Em Pregnant, Get ‘Em Pregnant for a team name.  Thank God I only had to write that out once, and would shorthand it when I read the standings.  We had rounds on fun facts about Google, Apples (Adam’s, et.al), Bloody Marys, and some cool 8-bit Ninetendoized versions of TV show themes.  If “close enough” is your jam, this was the night for you, as we had several questions where you only had

Livin La Vida Loca
Eileen

Hey guys! Thanks for checking the blog for Sunday night quiz! Let’s recap, shall we?? Round one, “What Do You Mean U People?” asked for the names of people with 2 U’s in their name. Did you know that Rupert Murdoch gave up his Australian citizenship and founded News Corporation? Round two, “Ain’t Nothing But A ‘No-G’-Thang” asked you to name the song title and artist who are too cool for G’s. You guys did pretty well, but I’d like to remind you that, Ricky Martin, NOT Enrique Iglesias, sang Livin’ La Vida Loca. Round three was a timed round in which you had to name 8 of the 9 ingredients in Paula Deen’s pound cake.

A Fish Walks Into A Bar…
Tedd Strange

Seriously, last night Trivia Bitches showed up with a team mascot, Captain Tedd.  He must have been good luck though, as the scores reflect.  Round 2’s audio challenge was a sweet creation of songs that were set to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, which included a sweet Supercut of all the songs together that we enjoyed during the first scoring break. Despite missing some of our regulars, we still ended up with 15 teams, and the competition was keen.  I thought Whoreable Week had the cleverest team name of the evening, although I can’t figure whether such a thing would be a negative or a positive…but

QFAC Planned Parenthood
Eileen

Hey all! Thanks for checking out this week’s blog from Mother Muffs! First and foremost, I need to thank you all for your display of support and generosity. This week we held a Quiz For A Cause, benefitting Planned Parenthood! No matter what side you fall on politically, there is no denying that Planned Parenthood provides valuable resources to those who would have no access to said resources otherwise. Planned Parenthood has affected my life personally. There was a time when I didn’t have any health care coverage, couldn’t afford it if I tried, and they provided me with the free birth control means to prevent any unwanted pregnancies. We raised $106 last night,  $20,000

Gimme a Beet! With a side of Castoreum…

Gimme a Beet!  With a side of Castoreum… I never cease to be amazed by the crazy shit that I learn while hosting, or by how some teams ace certain rounds that are ass-kickers, then screw the pooch on some that seem easy.  Such is the life of a Quiz Master though.  As I sit here trying to think of something substantive to write about for the blog, my thoughts instead turn to placing the gummy bears on my desk in inappropriate positions on each other.  “Why would you mention such twisted thoughts, Tedd?”  Well, in part to see if anyone actually reads this, ‘cause for as long as I’ve been hosting and blogging, I’ve never received

Hey Guys! Hope everyone had a great Easter! Thanks for ending your holiday with me! Remember, if you don’t sin, Jesus died for nothing! (LOL) Let’s recap, shall we?! Round one was a round on Hawaii. Did you know that the humuhumukunukunuapua’a is Hawaii’s state fish? (I spent all afternoon perfecting it’s pronounciation) Round two asked you guys to name the party song, as well as it’s title. You guys did pretty well over all, but no teams got “It’s My Party” by Lesley Gore. Round three, one of the most frustrating rounds for quizmasters because we sound like stroke victims whilst reading it, asked you to name the TV show based on

Give That Man A (Left) Hand!
Tedd Strange

As previously mentioned, Mother Muff’s recently added the fine beverages of local favorite Left Hand Brewing Co. to their menu, so the fetching Linda was on hand from the brewery to introduce the product and provide some neat-o swag for the bonus rounds.  I personally enjoyed the Well Played Red IPA.  If you have the means, I highly recommend picking it up.  People were especially eager to play; some patrons we’re even spied giving the stink eye to lollygaggers who had come in earlier to eat but clearly were not staying for quiz.  Way to regulate, ‘Muffers! Do you know your fonts?  If you do, and you weren’t in attendance last night,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZ!!!!
Eileen

Hey guys! Last night at quiz we had a birthday girl! Liz was celebrating the big 2-5! She can finally rent cars, and her insurance will go down. Hooray!!! Round one was entitled HAIKUUUKEN and asked you to name the video game based on the haiku given. You guys did pretty well on this round, except those of you who forgot that Mario debuted in Donkey Kong before getting his own series of video games. Round 2, our first audio round of the evening, asked you to name the songs inspired by the sun and the moon. Black Hole Sun, by Soundgarden was my favorite of the round. Round three, God, The Great Ball of Fire, asked you to name the song title based on the jacked up lyrics I read to you.

Harper Lee’s Lesser-Known Work, Tequila Mockingbird…
Tedd Strange

It was a beautiful night to leave the house and join us at Mother Muff’s.  One thing I love about hosting is the surprise that comes with seeing the breadth of knowledge that some quizzers have.  Just when I think there’s no way people are going to correctly identify German Romantic composers, y’all come through.  We had some great rounds involving songs by the same name, animal gulags, and quirky things from or about Canada.  At Geeks Who Drink, we recognize that a lot of you don’t get out much, and bingewatching on NetflixTM is probably a staple of your daily agenda, so we gave you some love with an extra opportunity to show your stuff

Quizzy Poo!!
Eileen

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking in to recap last night’s quiz! Round one, “Let Me Be Frank” taught us that Frank Zappa has kids named Dweezil and Moon Unit. What the hell were they smoking when they named their kids?! Round two was an audio round and asked you to name the female lead singer of each clip, along with the song title. Pretty good round for most teams. Round three was fun. I gave you a fake movie title made entirely of words from the movies titles of a particular actor, you had to tell me what actor/actress I was talking about. For example, Mike the Accountant Five: Perfect Air Trolls would have been Anna Kendrick. In Round 4, London Calling, we learned that Lin-Manuel

I will always take up whatever opportunity I can to sub at Mother Muff's Kitchen and Spirits: it's a great bar with a fantastic atmosphere and a GREAT crowd for pub quiz! Tedd's off doing top-secret business things, and he'd probably have to kill you if he told you what it was. Thanks for having me as your substitute Quizmaster in his steadd (see what I did there?). Round 3 tonight was about food, parks, and books from certain states in the US. Maine came up in regards to Stephen King's IT. Holy shit you guys, did you see that trailer that came out today?? I'm not one to scare easily- I pretty much never get spooked by scary movies or books, but man. Stephen King's
