Trivia: Taco Trucks on Every Corner Lead to Sangria Law

Now that autumn* is here, let's get back into the swing of trivia! Y'all come out and join the intrepid MeFite team for Geeks Who Drink trivia at Little J's Bar. Arrive early for the best chance at parking! (8:00 is trivia start time, I normally show around 7:00 to grab a table.) (*for varying values of autumn; this is Houston, after all)

The Big Trivia Night

(The description you are about to read is real. Only the questions have been changed to prevent an investigation.) This is the city... Houston, Texas. It was Wednesday, December 2nd. It was chilly in Houston. We were working the Geeks who Drink trivia detail. It was seven p.m. when we got to Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. The tables were full. Perhaps we should have arrived earlier, like 6:30 or so. [more inside]

Quansar season is flexible in Houston, isn't it?

During last night's quiz meetup it was noted that it's been a while since we've had a non-quiz-based meetup to simply socialize and catch up. We're willing to host again at our place, but recognize that holding it in Missouri City does place a bit of a travel imposition on some. So, lets start a discussion: when shall we meet, and if not in MoCity, where?

Breaking News! Lukemeister to Visit H Town!

Over the last few weeks, the Houston metro area has been enjoying all sorts of parties, parades and other events (Mardi Gras Galveston, All Star Weekend, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, etc.), but now it's time for the main event that all these other festivities have been the precursor to. (Precursor of?) [more inside]

A Very Belated Quonsar

It's been a while since we've had a proper full Houston meetup. We had planned to do this closer to Quonsar, but real life got in the way, as it usually tends to do. The Maple Leaf Pub will be our hosts on Groundhog Day. [more inside]

Trivia: Dubstep is Robot Farts

Previously in trivia: "Hurricane Isaac Hayes Goes Down Smooooth" and "Legitimate Team Name" faced some tough competition and placed fifth and sixth. Not bad... and so many people! Can we do better? Yes we can! It's Thursday night at the Maple Leaf Pub. Steak and the best table at 7, trivia at 8. Sorry for the late notice...

Trivia: Hurricane Isaac Hayes

Previously in trivia: "Curiosity Killed the Martian. Thanks, NASA" put in a solid bronze medal performance. Come join us at the Maple Leaf Pub to stake out a good table for steak at 7 and yummy yummy trivia at 8. Wait, strike that, reverse it...

Trivia: Three in a row?

Previously in trivia: We won another one! "Paddle Faster, I Hear Banjos" took the top prize again! We're racking up gift cards to use at an eventual MeFite Quonsar party! Let's add to the kitty! Trivia starts at 8 at the Maple Leaf Pub, but come at 7 to claim a good table and enjoy tasty steak.

Trivia: Who Popped Queen Elizabeth's Cherries Jubilee?

(EDIT 6/7: Postponed to the 14th due to Real Life.) Now that hockey season is almost over (and no more games are scheduled on Thursday nights), we're going to head back to the Maple Leaf Pub for Geeks Who Drink trivia night. Steaks are served starting at 7, trivia begins at 8. Come one, come all!

Trivia: Three in a row?

Last time we (Davy Jones' Locker) wound up in solo possession of second place, netting us a $15 bar tab for this week. The previous excursion we (In the Vault, Bob) wound up winning second in a tiebreak. Can we make it a third straight trip to medal territory? Join us at the Kelvin Arms and see! (MexicanYenta's suggested team name: Grand Forks Olive Garden.) Meet at 7:30, trivia at 8. Edit: Postponed for a week due to Real Life.

Trivia: Quantum Leap Day

Previously: Last time, we won the second-place tiebreaker in sudden death. And quizmaster Scott is buying us a round this time for the win for best team name. And so Dr. Metafilter finds himself leaping from trivia night to trivia night, striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home. ..Oh, wait, what? It's just Leap Day, not Quantum Leap Day? Guess we'll have to put the DVDs down and go out for trivia at the Kelvin Arms.

Trivia: In The Vault, Bob

We were thisclose to a second-place finish last time we met for Geeks who Drink trivia at the Kelvin Arms. The Best Team Name theme will be that old Dating Game staple: Where is the strangest/best/worst place to “make whoopee?” We'll be in the vault at 7:30 for trivia at 8.

Pub Trivia - Insert Clever Title Here

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and Polish Oompa cover bands-- Of cabbages--and kings-- And Gordon Ramsay's Sex Dwarves-- And whether pigs have wings." [more inside]

Houston "Bad Art Night"

Proposed: a night that's kind of like an art "potluck." Bring your arty or crafty project and materials. Prepared to share. Once gathered, we engage in an excellent form of parallel play. Conversation ensues. Called "Bad Art Night" to 1) take the pressure off of trying to be "productive." 2) create permission to try new things and just play around and finally 3) lower the bar for entry -- no artistic talent required.

Trivia: Occupy the Maple Leaf Pub

It's trivia night at the Maple Leaf; it's also a heavy hockey night with 10 games scheduled. Our schedules dictate that Thursday is going to be our night for trivia (at least this week; we can discuss other options). Come join us and help us outnumber the hockey heads!

Pub Trivia: Atlas Chugged

It'll be another packed house at the Maple Leaf Pub as Team MeFi takes on all trivia challengers, and tackles the steak and baked potato dinner and awesome cheese-stuffed jalapeños. Trivia's at 8, but the house has been so stuffed lately, we need to start arriving earlier to stake out a table, so I've set the start time for 7. Be there or be a regular quadrilateral!

Pub Trivia: What Is… Cliff Clavin?

Steak and Geeks Who Drink pub trivia. What could be better? I know! Our score could be better! Last time's 7th place finish (out of 15 teams) was like the episode of Cheers when Cliff went on Jeopardy! and found categories that were custom-made for him... only exactly the opposite. Still, we'll pick ourselves up and dust off and try again! Don't forget to come early to stake out a good table and enjoy yummy yummy steak!
