Last night we couldn’t decide what to do for dinner, we wanted takeaway Chinese but our favourite place is closed on Mondays. Then my Marja’s friend from France (who is staying with us at the moment) suggested we go to the Brass Bell’s Monday Night Quiz Evening.
It was really quite fun, even though our A-Team (the Marja, French Guest and myself) came dead last (the questions were hard ok, and ALL the other teams are super regulars).
It’s R20 per person and all the money goes into a pot. The winning team, second-place team and third-place team all get a portion of the money which I think is really cool (the winning team last night won R400 between 7 people!)
We order a large portion of juicy ribs between the three of us so when the snack platter (per team) was brought out we couldn’t finish it (the platters are complimentary). The Quiz Master took pity on us mere Quizzical Mortals and gave us a bottle of wine even though we came dead last, so we went away with a little more knowledge between the ears, full tummies and some wine. What more can you ask for?
What’s your favourite quiz question?
I quite like – What is the name given to a posh wine waiter/steward?
Can you guess it? No Googling now!!
