D-Day Baby!

Madison. What up? What up? It’s Thursday night and that means it’s time to get ready for another serious bout of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. Now, if you were paying attention earlier this week, you would know that European Geography, Lana Del Rey and Harry Houdini all in play tonight. But we’ve got another late-breaking category. …

The Mid-way Point in Madison

MMMMMMMMadison, tonight we’ll cross the halfway mark in our Winter League. So, let’s run it down as it is right now. In classic form, Neal of Fortune is light years ahead of everyone with a big timin’ 48 points. I think they could take several weeks off, come back for the final and only have …

Consider Your Motivation For Getting Out Tonight

Before you start complaining about the cold, or how you’re wearing 12 layers and you’re considering skipping trivia tonight, I want you to think about the earliest settlers of Wisconsin, and specifically Madison. Think about how they didn’t have their Nest thermostats turned up to 76. Or a neighbor kid who shoveled their sidewalks. They …

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 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 …

Summer’s over, Madison

Listen, Madison, I think we know how this is going to shake out. We’re staring down the summer league finals tonight, which means Neal of Fortune is probably going to win. Honestly, all they have to do is show up. Spoony Bards will hold fast to their motto, “Always the bridesmaids”. Clever Girl will rest …

Madison, Can You Dig It?

Perhaps I underestimated the resilience of the Brady Street crowd in Milwaukee. Because it certainly seems like they were more shook by the Riverwest 24 than I expected. Well listen up, Up & Under players, the bike race is over. All the Riverwest hoodlums and ne’er do wells have gone home. It’s safe to leave …
