Trivia geeks come to Albuquerque

Geeks Who Drink Geek Bowl at Isleta Casino

It’s a huge weekend for Geeks from all over the country, as Isleta Casino plays host to the 9th annual Geeks Who Drink Geek Bowl on Saturday, Feb. 7 at 7pm SHARP. The GWD trivia competitions have become a weekly ritual in bars all over this town during the last several years, (and an Albuquerque based team even took home the Geeky crown from Denver in 2009) but this is the first year the Duke City will be hosting the bowl.

We’re big trivia fans here at the office, (our own Mark Lopez was on a team that managed a 3rd place win in the "Friends" themed GWD last week,) so we plan on checking out the festivities and maybe, just maybe laying claim to at least part of that $12,000 in prizes that GWD is touting. Or not. I guess it all depends on how much we can actually remember about "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" or whatever (the quiz’s theme is unknown at this point).

If you know way too much about "Firefly" or "Breaking Bad" or Taylor Swift (again, we're just guessing here,) you can buy all kinds of tickets over at geekbowl.brownpapertickets.com.

Also, there will be a pre-party over at Sister Bar (our dear neighbors) on Friday at 8pm. $10 at the door. Sounds like a grand, geeky bacchanal to me.

Marijuana smokers have reason to be excited today: this video of a cute goat saying “what’ will surely benefit from being viewed while high.

The Daily Word in oh my god, ghosts are real!

The Daily Word

Some sort of “wizard or spirit” showed up at the burning of El Kookooee last weekend. “It’s either a real humanoid figure up there hovering in the sky or it’s an extremely good projection from either a slide or some kind of camera,” said a ‘ghost enthusiast.’

A representative of a local haunted house attraction is on camera admitting that their brand of fright includes sexual assault, and also that they don’t do background checks on their professional gropers. Scary! But not in a fun way. More in an "actually committing sexual crimes" way.

What parts of New Mexico are haunted? Pretty much all of them, accordion to this website!

Allegedly ghost-infested asylum ruin still not torn down, probably won’t be torn down any time soon.

One thing I never could stomach about living in Houston: all the damn vampires.

And France is apparently crawling with evil clowns.
