Pub Quiz

It's the summertime, and in this changed (not quite post-) COVID world, more folks are releasing their pent-up urge to get up and go. That includes a lot of our host hivemind.


Quiz is going on vacation as well until the Wednesday after Labor Day, when we will have new rounds, some new guest hosts, and probably our usual thirst for beer.

Keep watching this page for random posts and links to one-off online goodies.

Wear sunscreen, hydrate, and always have a friend with bail money.

It's mid-month, and Mary O'Shag and Professor Lone Star are keeping you entertained and beered tonight.

Here's your HotW for tonight:

One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and The Gulag Archipelago are works by a famous onetime prisoner.

See you at 8!

It's the first Wednesday of the month which means four new chances to drink free beer and put your useless knowledge to work! For today's special married host edition of the quiz, Jon the Wunderman Wunder and Naomi of the North will be serving up the questions.

Today's hint: I support the Ocean City Raptors.

It's Wednesday! Not only that, it's the last Wednesday of the month! In addition to tonight's normal UPQ hijinks we'll also be awarding the Jordy to our top team for the month.

If that's not enough to get you off your couch and out to the bar, know that this will be your third consecutive chance to see The Sadiest hosting! Still not convinced? What if it was also The Sadiest's birthday? I can happily say that IT IS!

Here's a hint:

In what kind of town could you find Babson Boulders? That’s what I’m wondering.

See you tonight at Buddha Beer Bar - the quiz starts at 8 PM!

Another Wednesday, another quiz. Here's a juicy hint to get your brain's mouth watering.

I googled pictures of the Airbus A330-743L. I can't believe that's not photoshopped!
