Week 49 Recapper

  There was a lot of hullabaloo at Glass Nickel Pizza last night. Like a man can’t wear bangs and without a room full of people giving him shit for it. I mean Neil had a new haircut. No one asked to take pics of him with his little boy hair to send to their …

A Very Sexy Trivia

People are going to be talking about last night’s trivia show for years to come. Sure, it will be mostly complaints, but all press is good press, you know. From experience I can tell you with near-certainty that most of the complaints will come from Fuck the EFG. This team of renegades, misfits, ne’er-do-wells and …

The Legend of Week 46

We have got our work cut out for us tonight, Madison. Not only do we have to top the CoBrew CrowSour show from Monday night, we also need to top what must have been an insane-o evening at the Up & Under. Sure you had your regulars dominating. Shiva Conglomeration, Trivia Newton John and Who …

It Was Caffeine Pills

Dry your eyes, Madison. I know the first of November can be rough. You’re packing away your Novak Djokovic or Brit Marling in the film Sound of my Voice costume. You’re squeezing a couple of the remaining mini-packs of Swedish Fish you were handing out to trickertreaters, wondering if they can last one more year. …

Week 43 Madison Recap

Sure, a couple pics of Gritty appeared in last night’s show, but I didn’t think that would be enough to set the place ablaze with the flames of chaos. Yet that’s exactly what happened. Tensions were high all night. There was constant booing from the the back of the room, which is normal. Even before …

Thursday’s Creep

Sometimes you’re sitting on the front step, sipping hot coffee and watching the morning move. Then, you hear a car coming down the block. It’s moving just a little too slow and you have to decide if you have time to scoop up you dog or your child or whatever and get some place safe. …

The Longest Confidence

As Spoony Bardy David put it after last weekend, the long con has come up. For over a year, Team Drink Tickets (or whatever their serial killer flavor of the week is) has been tanking scores. Sure, every so often they would get third or second, sometimes even a first place finish, but they’re much …

Shutting Down September

It’s Thursday night and there is pizza in the air. That means you must be in Madison, and if you’re ready to push yourself to the known limits of trivia knowledge, you’re in the right city. Tonight, like every Thursday night, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia takes over the basement of Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood. Any …

Wedding Wave Crashers

Madison, I suggest you spend a little time covering the basics tonight, because word on the street is this week’s show is brutal. We saw a Company Brewing team win with 63 points, then at Up & Under a solo winner emerged with even fewer points. Anyone who comes anywhere near triple digits is instantly going earn legend …

Of Horn Dogs and Fuck Hounds

This is a little story about love and how that emotion can blindside you. The other night at the Up & Under there was this team, Eating Tiger Men, first timers, and couple lovers or whatever. Anyway, they met in college in a place relevant to an unannounced round in this week’s trivia show. They …
