You'll get a bonus point tonight at Buddha Beer Bar if your whole team comes dressed as seventeenth-century plague doctors. It's a pandemic, but we can still have fun!
Last Wednesday was a long time ago, so it's hard to recall for sure what happened exactly.
What I do remember is that Naomi of the North decided to begin her time off for bionic upgrade (TOBU) a week early, so Jon Wunder was pitching questions in relief. Thanks for doing that Jon, we'll be sure the official scoresheet shows that you earned the save.
As for actual trivia... there must have been some, but I can't for the life of me remember a single question. This is a problem, because now I don't know how to avoid previously used questions. Maybe we'll end up asking the same ones this week. Maybe not. I suggest showing up to find out for yourself.
In more certain news, we've received word that Naomi of the North has successfully become a little less human than before. We can't wait to see what she'll do with her new bionic super power.

Bob Dylan had songs on the Billboard Hot 100 list? I wonder what the first one was.
I wonder if I'll find out tonight at Buddha Beer Bar.
One year ago today, stalwart pillar Pura Vida of Seaman & Cumming missed Quiz because she was producing Baby Girl Quiz Baby. The crowd last night welcomed back Mom and cheered for Birthday Baby (who was presumably home enjoying her first anniversary on the planet).
Two nice guys from the neighborhood wandered in and were caught unawares by the presence of Quiz and the Gang. They jumped in as Electric and did well. Uptown Queers filled a table as Tears for Queers, but no tears were needed for their fine performance. Nicole played as Miss Thang until her date showed up, and we hope they both come back (as a couple, maybe?) next week.
We do hope Womens and Husbands hasn't given up Quiz for Lent, and Plan J was apparently getting stuff done some other place. Boo for adult commitments.
Buddha Beer Bar owner James Lee has gotten Lagunitas to sponsor the night, and so we had high quality T shirt swag for chug-off winners. Thanks, James and Lagunitas!
And, of course, the reason you clicked on this recap anyway: The Mediocre Mendicants won for the night; they were down a few regulars but picked up a new one (please come back, Melissa). The Jordy for February, our first full month at Buddha, was taken home by University of Inwood Student Senate Convicts Their President.
See you all next week--8 pm at Buddha Beer Bar. Keep watching this page for all manner of stuff and nonsense.
(And oh, yeah--Mary O'Shag announced she is getting married.)

Fluorescent colors. Ugh. In the name of all that is holy, it's a trend that needs to die.
New teams! Birthday chuggers! A baby! The baby belonged to Multiplying Like Rabbits, who did an impressive job wrangling it and answering trivia questions at the same time. New team Fail will probably never come back, judging by the way it reacted to the Sadieist's round on semordnilaps or reverse pairs -- strings of letters that spell one word one way and another word the other way, like gateman/nametag. It's probably just as well Fail didn't stick around long enough for the Evil Mr. Phil's mashup round on Presidents' Day carols -- you know, old favorites like "James Monroe, Row, Row Your Boat" and "In Your Eyes-enhower." They might have started throwing stuff. For some reason we've been having tiebreakers a lot since we moved to Buddha Beer Bar; this week Shoe-pid's Arrow shut out University of Inwood by sort of knowing some stuff about the moon (#moonjews). In the end we could all agree that 17.5 pounds is too heavy for a head-mounted robot that feeds you tomatoes as you jog.
