Hello hello hello!  So many fresh new faces gathered at the Central Saloon last night.  Fortunately, we had a very special Google Places promotion night, so I had plenty of free drinks to give away!  There were so many drink specials going on my head was spinning.  Stoli?  Long Islands?  Jack Daniels?  $5, can’t go wrong!

After the excitement of the temporary tattoos and GP reviews died down, we had some quizzing to do. 

“We can have our cell phones out during the quiz?”

“Well…uh…yea?  No?  I mean…yeano?”

The first round had folks solidly slapping their foreheads in frustration.  MAJOR Major!  Equator!  NasCARcar.  Most of those were easy to get.  The curveball, of course, was the tzatziki sauce.  (It’s always the tzatziki sauce!).  I got news for you folks.  Food is deceptive.  It is not always what it appears to be.  I’ve included a list of some recent (or unknown) changes in our classification system, so this kind of issue never comes up again.

 Cucumbers are fruit.  Pickles, however, are a vegetable.  A very evil vegetable. 

Garlic is a vegetable.  Kinda strange, but I guess it makes sense.

Pizza is a vegetable.  Because…cheese grows on trees?  Cheese Trees.

Ketchup is also a vegetable.  Don’t ask me, I’m not in charge.

Pumpkins are a fruit.  I think.

Pluto is NOT a planet.

Snuggies are bathrobes that are worn incorrectly. 

So there ya go.  The more you know!

Anyway, the quiz ran very smoothly overall.  Teams were completely neck and neck most of the night, with a 3 point spread by the end of round 3.  Gren Eye  and Super Dave had some tough rounds by the end of the night (what, you've never seen the Goonies?!?).  Loose Slots came on strong later in the night, and it looked like they would grab the top spot yet again.  My Vajayjay is a Painin' (did I really have to write that?) blew ahead and grabbed the top spot by one point!  Herman Cain's Bitches took a solid third to finish out the night.  Then we all stuck around, BS'ed a bit, and drank more.  Can't go wrong.
Hope you all had fun last evening, and I can't wait to see you again next week!

That's right, just pour that hot sauce on there.  Holy moly.  There's a reason I generally stick to my ever-lovin' Pub Wrap.  No amount of cheap beer can wash away the tasty burning of a Central Saloon Buffalo Chicken Wrap.  I steered clear of cheap beers all night, however.  Did you see how hard the rain was pounding last night?  Not cheap beer night.  No...I needed something with class.  Something with style.  Something that says, "Dang!  It is so cozy at our quiz night, I'm glad I'm not stuck at home or waiting for a bus in the rain".

So I sauntered up to the bar and demanded a drink that would help steady my nerves.  I naturally left it up to the awesome bartenders.  Just the bare minimum requirements.  Classy and good for cold weather.  Within moments, I was greeted with my absolute new favorite drink.  The Classy Manhattan.  Served up in a martini glass (for ease of Quiz Master duties), this otherwise traditional Manhattan has a secret ingredient.  A cube of tomato.  You might think I'm crazy.  But I'm not.  I'm not.  I think one of our clever quizees spiked my drink with that tomato chunk, but I drank it undeterred!  So there ya go.

I missed you all so much during my Boise bash. Sure, Boise has all the cold/dry weather, cowboys, and family-friendly bars that Seattle lacks. I almost claimed a spot of land to build my pre-apocalypse bunker on, raise a family and sow fields of manly potatoes...but no! I decided to return the the warm, soggy embrace of Seattle. And you didn't let me down. Oh, soggy were we.

We had a round on surprising Supreme Court rulings.  Did you know that folks tried to outlaw the addictive caffeine in Coca-Cola?  Sure enough, the massive Coca-Cola bank vault was opened, a bunch of lawyers and judges became fabulously wealthy overnight, and Coca-Cola was mysteriously allowed to continue selling an addictive product.  Yay justice! 

And do you know that one guy?  That dude, he was in all those movies?  Like, he's got a cool hair cut.  That movie with the cars!  The guns and the cars, you know what I'm talking about! Yea, Demi Moore. That's it. This clever round was full of little hints, and it was fun watching people try and triangulate which actor had appeared where. You all destroyed that round, so congrats! You know your movies! Unless...unless those movies involve British Detectives. We apparently don't have a lot of BBC fans out there.

The first few rounds were neck-and-neck. Be you a one-man team or a mighty compilation of bartenders/patrons, each answer sheet turned in was unavoidably within a single point in either direction. Let me remind you all, in case you forget; keeping a high average of correct answers through the night is good for your team. Keeping a high average of correct bonus pint answers is even better...for yourself. So. Weigh your options. Get drunk and ruin your teams' chances? Heck yea!

Kudos to SuperDave for holding his own, on his own. I sincerely hope you enjoy those puffy Halloween stickers. Gypsy Sluts gave me very creative answers when they were unsure of the correct response. I'd repost some of them here...but then I'd probably go to jail. Caboose took it all in stride, and Loose Slots really made it happen. And it may have been the most enjoyable stick-around-after-the-quiz-and-get-drunk night we've had in months. Thanks everyone, and I can't wait to see y'all next week!

Once wrestled gravity to the ground--and won. I know every word to ever Explosions in the Sky song. I devour planets and cupcakes. In the cupcake eating world they call me Galactus.

As a sub you really don’t get to know your quizzers very well. You show up, fight with a weird sound system, make some bad jokes, promise everyone their regular guy or gal will be back next week, and bail. Not much time for deep personal connections, and yet I feel like I got to know the fine folks at the Central Saloon pretty well last night, in that special, ‘I-don’t-think-any-of-these-people-have-ever-spent-time-in-a-maximum-security-prison kind of way.

Yes, Round 6 ‘Eight Ways to Find Yourself in Federal Pound-Me-in-The-Ass Prison’ was certainly enlightening. Thankfully scores for this round weren’t particular high, which is good because I’m not sure how I’d feel about quizzing in a room full of people familiar with racketeering, counterfeiting, and arson. One thing our quizzers do know a lot about, however, is personal hygiene as most teams had no trouble indentifying all the deodorant brands in the ‘Let’s Get Fresh!’ round. So to sum up, the quizzers at the Central are generally smart, smell good, and probably won’t pull a shiv on you in a back alley. Good to know.

Scores last night broke down into a three-way race between Hello World, Loose Slots, and Three Lawyers Walk Into a Bar. Loose Slots held onto first place for most of the quiz, going into the final round with a slim two point lead. Hello World, however broke out their joker at just the right time scored a whopping 22 points in Round 8 and secured the victory.
