Quiz Show: Geeks Who Drink
It would feel a lot better losing a quiz game if you were drunk (see Cash Cab for proof of this). A genius in Colorado has taken that concept, and the Irish pub quiz tradition, to “next-level” status, incorporating multi-media quiz questions and opportunities to win stuff. Geeks Who Drink are even going to the next pub-quiz extreme and uniting teams from all over the country in an annual Geek Bowl in Colorado, where on Jan. 4, the annual contest’s top finishers garnered a $2,000 purse.

You can now join what is becoming a growing craze at several venues in Salt Lake City. Don’t let the name stop you, though. The questions aren’t all “scientifical” like “Geek” implies. They’re relatively easy—as in, easy enough for drunk people—and cover a range of topics like “Country Music That Doesn’t Suck.” One sample question: “Which late-night so-called comedian is going to host the Emmys in August? You know, the unfunny douchebag?” Start thinking about your team name now; they’re pretty intricate these days: Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf, Bono’s Back and Lightning Struck Old Faithful–9 People Were Injured were all competing on a recent night, for example. Check out the drinking geeks at the following locations and times:

• Mondays: A Bar Named Sue, 8 p.m. (3928 S. Highland Drive)
Tuesdays: The Huddle, 8 p.m. (2400 East Fort Union Blvd.)
Wednesday: Piper Down, 7 p.m. (1492 South State)
