School's Out for Summer
QM Rebecca

This was my last Saturday before school is out for the summer.  Being that during my "day job" I'm a teacher, I am looking forward to getting the heck out of dodge for a couple of weeks starting this Friday.  So, for the next 2 Saturday's I will be away.  But have no fear, you will have some amazing Albuquerque Quiz Masters to sub for me, and Paul, the Perfectly Goofy, will still be here in his usual Score Keeper capacity.  Ironically, it was Paul who was out this week due to some business trips.  He was covered by the always amazing Fernando.  Together with all of you we had an amazing night!   We started the night off with Adjectives!  Then

I'm a wife and a mom of two amazing kiddos, Alexis and Anya. By day I'm an elementary school teacher. By night I love nothing more than drinking wine and watching history shows. My favorite is Drunk History. I have been a "Geek Who Drinks" for many years now and I am so thrilled to be a Quiz Master so I can share my love of drinking and knowing things with those around me.

Seriously, Don't You Dare Say a Bad Word About Hudson Hawk
The Jewish Viking

SHUT YO MOUTH - HUDSON HAWK IS A WORK OF STAGGERING GENIUS. Sorry, I got hot headed there, it's just, Hudson Hawk. It's like a perfect piece of cinema. Chinatown? Fuck off. The Godfather? Get over yourself? Honey, I Shrunk the Kids? Close second. Anyway, quiz! Our first round was all on IMDb being broken, which thankfully reminded all of us of the great Hudson Hawk. From there we moved to the worst of the greatest songs. Considering identifying bands like All-4-One and songs like Family Affair was hard, it's no wonder they're at the bottom of the list. Round 3 featured some quick two word phrases. Things that are super easy to identify, like thing mints, curtain call,

Shots! Shots! Shots! Shots!
QM Rebecca

I missed you all last week and was so excited to be back tonight!  Even more fun was the edition of a shot-ski donated by O'Niells as an additional prize to the first place team.  I gotta say, I was pretty tempted to just keep it for myself!   We started the night off with some missing letters... but don't worry, we ended up finding them all!  Next we had an audio round of songs that had been sped up so we could just get this round over with.  To be honest, a lot of these songs sound better sped up!  Next up was a sooner or later round on the birthplace of famous people.  Everyone took the gamble and turned their answer sheets in

Someone Write an Opera About Quiz
The Jewish Viking

Or a soap opera about quiz.. I'd take either. If there can be operas and soaps about lost underground cites, enchanted dolls, forehead branding, magic bullets, and dead nuns, we can get one of my quizzes in there. As for my quiz, last night was a fantastic one. Beyond the soap and operas round we had a music round where you had to identify the lead singer. To my surprise you guys kicked butt at that round, although we did have couple of teams who never figured out that Hootie wasn't the actual name of the singer. We had a grape filled fourth round, and luckily I didn't see anyone trying to expose themselves trying to see the Fruit of

I don't know if you saw it, but that track was muddier than our Mud Volleyball event. Except the 5 horse, clean as a whistle. Lead the whole race, just like tonights quiz. It was dirty. It was quick.

Gas Passing Clones
The Jewish Viking

Another Monday - another fantastic Quiz at ol' O'Niell's Heights. We had clones, tops, gas, and so much more. Our music round had some artists with May birthdays. Yes, Lenny Kravitz is one of them. Yes, I did count Lenny Kracvitz's penis as a separate entity. It's on the internet, you can look it up on your own. Quick chemistry lesson, from last night's round 3: CO2, stands for carbon and oxygen (two of them). Together they are a molecule, alone they are individual elements. Basically, I asked you for ingredients and instead of writing down eggs, flower, and sugar, you just wrote cake. See the difference? Science. Round

Ned Stark was right. Winter is Coming.
QM Rebecca

But here in the Land of Enchantment it waited until the end of April for winter to finally arrive.  We started this cold night off with putting on our "Thinking Caps".  Then we kicked off the audio round with Round Two Shall Begin Shortly, followed by a 50/50 round on all things gingery.  Good job to the entire group for getting Moscow Mule correct!  Next was a sad round on Trump's first 100 days and the last 8 presidents. The visual round was all about superfans decided to get tattoos of their favorite celebrities, but things did not go well and I hinted that Perfectly Goofy Paul had one of these tattoos on his persons.  That was followed by a dumb

My God, it’s full of quizzers
Adam Jarmon Brown

  I love subbing for Eric here at O’Niell’s. So many of you come out every time I’m here. Tonight we had 18 teams. 18 teams! There were probably close to 60 people out tonight to play Geeks Who Drink and it warms the dead cold black center of my heart. The staff at O’Niell’s is amazing as well. Always greet me with a smile, bring me a nice cold glass of water (I don’t drink soda, yo!) and stop to chat with me. I always feel so welcome here. As should you loyal quizzers! The staff at O’Niell’s is full of awesome. They bring you your delicious burgers, pasta, fish and chips,

It's Reh-lij-ee-OH-suh, NOT Reh-lij-ee-oh-SUH
QM Rebecca

You know you're a Potter-Head when questions about Praying Mantises from Connecticut make you think of Hermione telling you how to correctly pronounce Leviosa.  I'm not sure what it means when I think of Dan Marino for questions about San Marino, although I will tell you my mind went to the movie Ace Ventura (Laces Out, Dan!) and not the actual sport career for good ol' Dan.  So there's that. A very loud, but great night at O'Niell's tonight.  Thankfully, the 15 teams playing all seemed to be able to hear me well enough, although my throat is a little worse for wear today.  We started the night off with some April Showers and May Flowers.  Then it was onto

I'm Not Clear You Understood Round 2
The Jewish Viking

We have fun at quiz, don't we? Sometimes though, we're not supposed to have fun. Last night we had a music round featuring some bad YouTube Karaoke "stars" Bev & Bob. I thought I was clear up front that the round was not for fun - it was for points and to torture you with. And yet, you seemed entertained by it. I don't know what to do with you guys. Our top team even identified 100% of the songs. Even Rebecca Black's Friday. Thanks. Thanks for making my plan backfire. I plan to torture you and you go ahead and enjoy it. Speaking of entertainment, it's completely and totally true that Steven Seagal drove a tank into a dude's home killing his dog. If you were wondering,

I May or May Not Be Looking Up Pig Penises Right Now
QM Rebecca

It's always a fun night when you learn something new.  Now that I know that pig penises are corkscrewed shape, I may or may not be looking them up right now to see it for myself.  Hey, the more you know, right?!?!?   Before we got to pig penises, we started the night off with the cast of “I Love Lucy” on a road trip across America.  Then it was onto our first audio round with artists who first appeared on kids' TV and the songs they're singing.  Lots of high scores on that one.  We needed to bring those scores down quickly.  Any what better way than a speed round on sports!    After that, things got really

The show must go on
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Pretty much right at the head of tonights quiz I got word from my mother that my 17 year old cat, ACK was being put to sleep. That boy had been a constant companion and family member in both our households. A talkative cat, who would follow you around and meow and wind between your ankle. He’d spent most of his life as a big fat ass, but sadly in the last few weeks he lost so much weight he’d become skin and bones. What was probably cancer came on quickly and he lost that battle sadly. But at 17 years old he live a long full life, getting me through some big chunks of bad and shitty life. And always being a fun snuggle bug. ACK,

You say potato, I say potahto.  You say tomato and I say tomahto. Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto.  Let's call the whole thing off!  Can't we just agree that sometimes we pronounce things differently?  You say  "ay-Kon", I say "ah-Kon".  Is that really a bad thing?  I guess when you are a Quizmaster it is.  *sigh*  No really, I love it when you all yell out the correct way to pronounce things during the quiz.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  :)   Anyhoo, here's a run-down of the evening.  We started off the night with an EZ round.  Then a round of songs you DON'T want to hear

TanookiSuitandTie

Good evening one and all to our very first Twin Peaks quiz! I will admit: before December 2016, I had yet to accept Twin Peaks into my brain. But when I did, man, you couldn't stop me. There's not another TV show in existence quite like it. A humorous, bizarre, creepy film noir with a whole lot of soap opera mixed in? On paper, that sounds like an absolute jumbled mess. However David Lynch took all those seemingly unblendable aspects and created one of best, most imaginative shows around, chock full of crazy unforgettable moments and abstract symbolism.

The Real Motel 6 Story
Ian Kaplan

You guys might remember a question from Round 8 last night about the famous Motel 6. The "6", we were told, comes from the original price for a night in one of their stately rooms: $6. As is the case in so many of these corporate origin stories, the real history has been whitewashed. My aunt, this year's Daughter of the Year in Grandma's annual comportment competiton, by the way, used to be married to Marcel Motel, the "black sheep" of the Motel family. If the name "Motel" is ringing a bell for you right now, that's because IT'S THE SAME MOTEL WORD AS FROM THE NAME OF THE COMPANY. Marcel told Auntie all about that SIX. Have you ever noticed that anytime evil happens it's always
