Geeks Who Drink comes to Paddy’s in Eagle-Vail

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

EAGLE-VAIL, Colorado – Each week Geeks Who Drink hosts live pub quizzes at more than 90 bars and restaurants throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Tennessee, Utah, Washington and Virginia. On Wednesday, the Geeks make their Eagle-Vail debut at Paddy’s Pub and Grill.

What is a pub quiz? Very much like the name suggests: a trivia quiz game played in a pub. It’s an Anglo-Irish tradition, but our goal is the same: to foster friendly cerebral competition and promote social drinking (and eating) in a relaxed environment.

A Geeks Who Drink quiz is written to scratch the universal itch for trivia but with more showmanship and originality. We’ll ask a round called “Hunting, Fishing and Drinking: The Three Dude Groups” followed by a round called “Wildly Inappropriate First Date Movies” (think “The Accused”). The questions are entertaining, so even if your team is in last place, you’re still having a great time.

Geeks Who Drink quizzes are also unique in that they include two rounds of audio questions – like “name that tune,” but with some bite. Examples: “Songs We Lost Our Virginity To in The 1990s,” “Top 40 hits Butchered by David Hasslehoff,” “Disco Classics in German … “

Geeks Who Drink has a staff of more than 20 question writers and a team of research librarians who fact check every single quiz. Our mistakes are rare.

Finally, Geeks Who Drink blogs every single quiz so the day after, players can find photos of the winning teams, the final scores and a small narrative of the evening’s festivities on our website:

How does it work? The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions and is played in teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster; teams write their answers on provided sheets and turn them in at the end of each round. The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.

What do you win? Bar cash, Internet fame and prizes. And of course, the winning team gets their photo on the blog at
