And Then Joe Buck Says, “Well, It’s The Penalties That Lost The Game For Them.”

Man, I don’t even know what’s gotten into you players out there. Walking into trivia with teams seven, eight, sometimes ten deep? What kind of shit is that? Don’t get me wrong, I love having more people in the place. More drinks get poured, more money gets spent, Trivia looks more successful. But you know …

Ask Me About My Trivia Show

Ah yes, another week of brought to you by the fine folks at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. Just as with every weekend, I was out and about and people kept coming up to me, “Oooooo, what can we expect from this week’s trivia? Any clues you wanna give us?” And, as always, I was forced to …

That American Spirit

  I like to think 2017 started early last night. And the trivia playing patrons of the Up & Under lead the charge. I don’t know if it was low rumbling–a murmur at a single table–or if one player jumped atop the bar and declared an end to 2016. Reminding everyone else in the bar, …

The Pre Winter Chills

I don’t know if it’s the holiday season, or the bastardly cold weather, but a lot of Milwaukee players didn’t make it to the Up & Under last night. In fact, I can’t even tell you who got third place, because that team, No Say, took off after the the third category. Which left The …

A Picture is Worth A Thousand Threats

I was mid-show last week, probably about to ask a Maths question I couldn’t explain, nor justify with the answer I would provide. When Quinn, the manager at Glass Nickel dropped off a package. “This came for you,” was all he said. It seemed to cause the lights in that basement to flicker, to which …

Welcome to Week 41

Big weekend, am I right? Listen, I know deep down we are all the undecided voters in the audience of the second presidential debate. It’s a tough one. That’s why trivia is here. Each week we bring our mildly progressive, overwhelmingly asshole-ish and naively privileged view of the world to you. Not just to influence …

The Guy in the Question Mark Suit

Last night, a team at the Up & Under slinked up on Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia, leaned in close, as though to share some intimacies, “Hey Trivia, I see that score sheet you got open on that alternate window. And I just want to let you know, I’m about to show it things it aint never …

Honestly? Meat Pies?

  It’s Up & Under day! It’s Up & Under day! It’s Up & Under day! It’s Up & Under day! That’s right Milwaukeeans, Milwauksters, and even those who just came into protest the actions of the police, you’ll want to slide your way over the Up & Under on Brady Street tonight. Because, at …

The Goat Whores Returneth

It must have been unbearable at the Up & Under last night, with the heat the teams were throwing off. It must have been mega. We’ve had plenty of teams walk out on us, tell us to go fuck ourselves, or my favorite, crumple their answer sheet and cry into drinks throughout the rest of …

Shake it Off, Milwaukee

Milwaukee, You still still alive? I know it was a rough weekend. With the Riverwest24 bike race and the Brady Street Festival. I’m honestly surprised the city is still standing.   But that’s not what destroys a city…or a home. Time and time again we’re told the home’s worst enemy is moisture. But most people …
