"Why are dudes so thirsty?" "I think if you could definitively answer that, you'd be a very rich woman"
QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!!   If you missed tonight’s quiz, you missed the largest leap forward in pub quizzes since the invention of the microphone! See, I spend every Monday night looking around the room, because I think it’s very funny that the décor in the restaurant is meant to resemble the cluttered walls of a century-old British pub, yet there’s wires and screens running all through it. Well, in staring at the juxtaposition of old-fashioned and new-fangled clutter, I started to piece some things together, and long story short, we now run VIDEO ROUNDS at our quiz!   If you’ve

QMC

Hello Sherlock's Baker St. Pub!   (Tonight's blog was run through Google Translate a few times - just like Round 3!)   SXSW is more! Has the brain been fried? It certainly looks like it's a glance at some of your score. I really hope you have a job that can be to convince all the people out of the city so you do not move here.   So round 1! It has definitely begun. Question was answered - some had it correctly! Questions on topical issues were two. I'm a little late on top of them, that's why I'm good I did not play the last night of the contest.   Round 2 - music round! Favorites.

QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   I want to start by saying a huge thank you to all of you who were brave enough to leave your houses to come to quiz tonight! I’ve lived in Austin for 13 years, so I know all about how daunting it can be to be out of the house during SXSW. So many California douchebags and Brooklyn assholes clogging up almost everything fun, some bars raise prices (I legit had a bartender tell me “Six dollars” after handing me a beer once during SXSW, then when I showed him my Austin drivers’ license, he said “nevermind, two-fifty.” True story), and, of course, there’s the knowledge that every

QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   It was so good to see all of you tonight! I adore you all so much. As I might have mentioned a time or two over the course of our evening tonight, I just got back from Seattle, where I took part in Geek Bowl XI! For the unaware, Geek Bowl is an annual event for Geeks Who Drink in which teams from all over the country compete in the largest live trivia event in the world (that’s us!). This year, 212 teams duked it out for a total of over $50K in prizes, with first place winning $11,000! But let’s start at the beginning, shall we? I got to Seattle on Thursday

QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   First order of business, thank you to all of you who joined us this week! For those of you who missed it, please allow me to clarify something: the trainee I had with me last week is not being trained to replace me (to the best of my knowledge, anyway). I love this job, and I love this venue. I will be the dedicated host here until they drag me out, my chewed-to-the-quick fingernails bleeding as my fingertips dig into the hardwood. Or, to put it more plainly, I am not going anywhere. I love you all far too much to just disappear on you with no warning. I hope that clears some things

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   Once again, we had a packed house for quiz tonight! I adore you all so much for filling our quiz space each and every week – so much more than you know. We had a special guest tonight: Quizmaster-in-training Dale! As I say every time we have a trainee with us, this job is nowhere near as easy as I make it look every week. I’ve been doing this job for almost 6 years now, an average of twice a week for that whole time – that’s a lot of practice. But, believe it or not, I was pretty shaky right out of the gate. That’s why we train new Quizmasters the way

We Are the Watchers On the Wall
QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   We had an amazing quiz tonight! It’s been a while since we’ve had 15 teams, and you know how much I love having a full house. So, thanks to all of you who came out for our Galentine’s Day quiz!   If you’ve been to quiz at Sherlock’s with any kind of regularity, you know that I’m a big fan of the TV show Game of Thrones. Earlier this year, I started dating a wonderful lady who’s never seen the show before, so she and I have been tearing through it, getting ready for the debut of season 7 later this year. This, of course, has reignited

QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   Anyone who’s ever talked to me for more than a couple of minutes probably knows allllllll about how much I love doing this job, but I’d like to take this opportunity to say something else about it: Being a Quizmaster is seldom boring.   Take, for example, our evening tonight. I don’t yet have what I need to plug into the TV sound system like I normally do, so we arranged for the GWD private-event PA to be set up at Sherlock’s so you lovely folks wouldn’t be deprived of audio rounds two weeks in a row. But while I was setting up that PA, the

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   Ways to know for sure that you love your job: Just about everything goes totally wrong on the night that your dear friend has set aside time to come see you, and instead of screaming and slamming your head against the wall in frustration, you just say “Well, nothing we can do about that now! Let’s have fun.”   Folks, I know I say this all the time, but I love all of you so much for sticking with us through equipment failures, substitute hosts, and even nights when Beef isn’t working.

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   Good god damn, it feels good to be home! I haven’t actually hosted a quiz since I was here two weeks ago! I know that doesn’t seem like a long time, but when you’re accustomed to hosting twice a week, taking such a long break from it feels… weird.  Humans are creatures of habit, after all, and I am a man with lots of habits.   So what did we learn tonight? We learned that “Bruce Springsteen” can be a complete sentence, if you allow for the idea that The Boss frequently leads prison breaks at juvenile detention centers. We learned that

Metal Gretel

Good Evening Sherlockians! As you can see, Chris was out and about and I was in it to win it! Of course that just means I was there to run the quiz. I was pleasantly surprised to see some familiar faces in the crowd. Not just that I've played at Sherlocks myself a time or two, but a team remembered me! Not even from hosting! I always like to go around chatting with all of you fine folk when I go and pick up stray pencils from the tables. I chatted with one group of you not knowing your team name and y'all recognized me! Specifically for that one round all about the vagina things. It was such a pleasure. Hah.  Anywho, y'all were a wonderful crowd and I hope to see you again

Dave Matthews ruins everything
QMC

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   I was 21 years old. I’d been living in Austin for a little over a year, and had been unemployed for about 10 of those months. I noticed that a new restaurant was being built near my place, by the highway, and I decided to apply to be waitstaff; I needed to find a job or I was going to have to move back to Mansfield to live with my parents again. I won’t mention the name of the restaurant, but I will say that it was a northwestern chain of sit-down casual-family-dining restaurants that specializes in $12 hamburgers and bottomless steak fries. This particular restaurant chain is fucking

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St Pub!   It was so great to be back in the saddle tonight! It’s been a few weeks since it’s just been me and you; we had a trainee a couple of weeks ago, and the delightful QM Amber filled in for me last week, so it was nice to get back to basics! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. Mine was pretty spectacular. I got to see my little sister, which was not supposed to happen this Christmas, I got plane tickets to get me to Seattle for Geek Bowl XI (more on that at a later time), my mom’s first surgery for her breast cancer was successful, and I received several very thoughtful

Hiya everyone, and thanks again for letting me guest-host your fabulous quiz. You have no idea the pressure I felt, filling in for your usual host, who is without a doubt one of the most likable people I've ever met, and I'm just this plain jane jerk...anyways, we still had fun. If I’d really thought about the fact I was hosting on a stage, I probably would not have worn a short dress. Sorry, guys. You probably didn’t want to get to know me THAT well. I think before anything we have to talk about that whackadoo visual round! I saw the competitive fire come alight in the eyes of the board game addicts in our midst, make no mistake. I was very very proud of those of you who

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   Tonight was such a great night! Before I go any further, I want to talk about something amazing that happened to me tonight. One of the regular teams (you might recognize their frequent team name Random Precision, though I believe tonight they were Spicy Pickled Peppers) got me a Christmas present, and it’s perfect! First of all, it’s a black t-shirt, which I can never have too many of. But even better, it’s a black Rick and Morty t-shirt! I LOVE Rick and Morty.

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St Pub!!   I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying this brief respite from the cold. Seriously, Thursday sucked. It was cold, humid, and windy. That’s a trifecta of dogshit weather, as far as I’m concerned. I’ll take mid-70’s during the day and low 60’s at night, thankyewverymuch.   It’s getting to that time of year where you’re hearing Christmas music everywhere you go (including pub quizzes).
