Charlie’s – Where the winds come sweeping down the plain! October 30, 2007

It was a bit of an interesting night at Chuck’s tonight…. From the drunks and the assholes to the ignorant and to the sloppy, you can always count on the ol’ Colfax gay bar to provide a night to remember.  In my normal shoot-out area, this week I want to thank Mother Nature for her contribution to the evening in the form of gale-force winds; although she didn’t knock down any of the loudmouths… I love all my teams so much!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your continued support on LOVE for an education with alcohol!

Enough ranting, let’s cut to the chase.  As many as 11 teams playing tonight and only three could end with a nod.  JT, flying solo again this week, landed 3rd, King Prawns rolled into 2nd and my sexy boys on Alleycat, (finally!!) making it to the top!!! Congrats studs; you all deserve this VICTORY!!!

See you hot messes next Tuesday!

XOXO

JR’s – Monday Night Trivia gets better rating than Monday Night Football…. October 30, 2007

With a late start following the Broncos OT mishap, what a night we had!  Eight teams playing and three left VICTORIOUS!

Big thanks to Rob for taking the brunt of my jokes (and for the shots!).  You’re a good sport, bro.  Thanks also to Joe for making sure trivia happened!

In the end, the 40 Somethings locked in 3rd, King Prawn nailed 2nd and Ellen’s Degenerates rocked into 1st place!

See you next Monday!

XOXO

After what was supposed to be a night off for a concert, I ended up with strep throat and not even going.  Big thanks to Josh for covering last week’s event!  I was glad to be back and we had a ton of fun (minus all the drunks shouting out answers)!

Great questions this week and even better players.  Alleycat walked away with 3rd, King Prawns in 2nd and The Wyo Boys leading tonight and walking away with 1st!

I’m working on getting us out of the smoke chamber for next week.  I’ll see what I can do.

XOXO

So we have now OFFICIALLY moved to MONDAYS at JR’s.  We are still starting at 9 so make sure to come join us!

This week was a good start; we had 9 teams getting in on the action this week.  Big thanks to Jackie O for DJing this week, the bars was a-ROCKIN’!  Through it all,  Newcombers took 3rd, King Prawns took 2nd and XXX took 1st.

Make sure you join us on next Monday for another night of thrills and brews!

SEE YA THERE!

XOXO

So, after a week of record crowds there was a little downturn in the participation category this week. However, the night turned out just fine with a real dog fight to the finish.

Only five teams started and two: The Doors and RMSC didn’t make it to the end.  Maybe it was because the questions to open up with seemed a little hard, or weird, or difficult to read, or the answers didn’t match, or the host couldn’t really speak English (or French for that matter). Anyway, thanks for at least a little effort.

Team Bosco always entertained, but alas this again was not their night.  The team of almost rocket scientists on Suborbital Projectiles (easier written than said) won beer in the second round, but the night belonged to Blow Beer Through Our Noses! Great job with your breakout win (rounds 1, 3 and the night).  It’s about time you idiots got some prizes.

Just a quick reminder for all you who don’t read my blog, due to the Rockies playing in Game #1 of the WORLD SERIES!!! next week we won’t have trivia. There’s definitely no better reason to cancel than Rocktober!!!

It’s Halloween already? October 18, 2007

Yes, the kickoff for Halloween was last night at Old Chicago in Wheat Ridge.  Staff all dressed up, there was a pumpkin carving contest and lots of specialty drinks!  So what if there wasn’t a Rockies game?  There’s always something going on at Old C’s. 

 Oh, yeah, and we had trivia too!  Glad to see so many familiar faces last night (Team X, Beer:30, Newman, Baked Mac and Cheese, Rocks) – I really appreciate all of you coming each week!  Nice job to the 2nd timers, Guys @ the Bar who won everything, yep, round 1, 2, and 3!  The new team, Fab 5, grabbed second place and we hope to see them back again next week.  Not sure if we will be having trivia yet or not but be at Old C’s anyway because the Rockies will be back in business in the FRIGGIN’ WORLD SERIES!!!

GO ROCKIES!!!

Old Chicago – 10/16 October 17, 2007

Familiar refrain at Old Chicago on Tuesday…top two teams this week were the same as the last couple of weeks, The Monkees and 99 bananas! The first round actually ended in a tie between these two teams, even though I erroneously awarded the round to 99 bananas…but The Monkees got their beer too, so it all worked out. After that, it was all 99 bananas as they took down rounds 2 and 3 and (obviously) the night! Great job guys! Also with a solid showing on the night, but finishing just out of the beer, was LHS. Next time guys!

Great night as usual at Old C’s! Thanks for coming out each and every week!

Good trivia nights may start slow… October 11, 2007

So, only seven teams at the start, but eleven by round three, not bad!   I’m so glad that Baked Mac and Cheese came back along with regulars Beer:30 and Team X to challenge Donkey Punch and the rest! 

 So what if the Rockies (who totally are amazing) are playing Thursday night?!!?  We can still have great trivia the night before.  Duh!!  Nice job to Donkey Punch on that (easy) first round, but Baked Mac and Cheese came back in the second round and third round to win overall.  Beer:30 was a ONE MAN TEAM (this time) and still took second.  Not bad, buddy, keep on coming! 

Old Chicago’s in Wheat Ridge is THE place to be on Wednesday nights, especially if you live out west.  Check it out!

Looking forward to next week as always.  Thanks to all of you!!

Breckenridge — Record Crowds… October 11, 2007

So, you guys packed it in last night just for a chance at some free beer! You certainly had Sara running like a chicken with her head cut off.  Thanks to all our players for really making it a great night, with the following answers notwithstanding: The LWV is not the Libertarians of West Virginia, Hattie McDaniel was not in Reefer Madness, and no, I did not sing any really bad remakes in the 80’s.

Anyway, on to the honorable (or dishonorable) mentions to the teams who didn’t win anything or even play the whole game: Hoosiers  (I’m surprised you didn’t stay the whole game after your big words to open up), The Incas, The Dorks (living up to your name by being there the whole time but not playing the whole time), and Bunny OTE.

The second tier consisted of playing the whole time and STILL not winning anything: The Boscos, Pitchers Fo’ Us (congrats on your recent nuptials), Duff Beer, and The Three Stooges.

However, the fight for beer fell this way: Team 911 won the first round, The Aquateens won the third in a tie-breaker, but the night (once again) belonged to Well, it ain’t gonna suck itself who won round 2 and our gift card for the night!  You all need to bring your A game and then some to knock of these guys…

Print My Blog, get free beer.  First round is on me if you  bring a copy of this in next week (10/17/07)  Peace out, cub scout.

What is up?!  Charlie’s is really starting to come together… Tuesday’s amazing trivia was matched with an AMAZING new dance floor in the side room!  A huge thanks to all my teams who keep making Buzzwordz a success week after week.  YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

…Just one more reason why I LOVE TRIVIA…. TWO sets of ties at the end of our game.  Alleycat v. JT for third place and King Prawns v. Britney’s Bastard Children…  After an exhausting Tiebreaker, we finished our game with JT in third, Britney in second and King Prawns in first!!! WHOOP WHOOP!   Nice job to all!

Until next week-

XOXO
