From the Geeks Gods:

What is all this? Here’s the short version:

Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK.

Our quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television. You can get a feel for the questions we ask by playing a sample round here.

Each quiz has two audio rounds:  a “Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV.

Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you’re some kind of savant.

If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team.

Winning teams gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the venue. Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz.

You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin’ Jeopardy.

For more information see our Players FAQ!

ZUMBA®
Perfect For:

Everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.

How It Works:

We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

Benefits:

A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

80s and Gentleman LIVE
May 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
80s and Gentleman LIVE

Take a trip back to the ’80s on the breezy Playground Bar & Lounge ROOFTOP on Saturday, May 25th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for a night of classic ’80s power-ballads, new wave & pop from Tucson’s premier cover band, 80s & Gentlemen–NO COVER!!!

Be sure to get here early for a great seat on the expanded Playground rooftop! Renovated, yet still featuring those great views of downtown’s skyline, our famous sunsets & mountain ranges.

Winners of the Tucson Weekly‘s Best of Tucson Best Cover Band award multiple-years running, the Weekly had this to say: “For a dozen years, 80s and Gentlemen have channeled the greatest new wave, pop and power ballads. Yeah, we know what you’re thinking. But wait. Their approach is shockingly and refreshingly unburdened by irony; it’s wholly revelatory and can cram your head—guilt-free—with schoolyard nostalgia and that bittersweet yearning for lost or forgotten loves. In that way, they show us how a good song is a good song no matter the context or era or if it’s a partying tune or not. The fetching frontwoman miraculously and accurately captures the essence of her female inspirations, in costume, phrasing and choreography, and star-spangled dudes ably and understatedly back her. Sure, they revel in questionable Reagan-era fashions but it’s absurdist theater too. No wonder they pack venues.”

Bio:

Rock Anthems to Power Ballads classic New Wave and pop hits 80’s and Gentlemen are the ultimate in musical nostalgia. Since their inception in 2005, 80’s and Gentlemen ascended quickly to the top of the entertainment marketplace establishing themselves as an industry leader in musical era tributes and themed party bands. Performing material true to the original artist with an unwavering commitment to excellence and professionalism they continue to be the number one choice for live entertainment for corporate functions, festivals, casinos, private parties and special events throughout Arizona and southern California. 80’s and Gentlemen’s corporate clients list includes such fortune 500 companies as Raytheon and Ventana Medical Systems to Cumulus Media, CSI-Cardiovascular, Comcast, PGA of America and the United States Air Force. 80‘s and Gentlemen perform annually at national and local fundraisers and charitable events for foundations such as the American Diabetes Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the American Red Cross. With their experience, talent, and expertise 80’s and Gentlemen stand alone in their capacity to meet clients spontaneous and diverse production demands and the ability to provide high quality fun and entertaining live music events.
