I’m a big fan of Pub Quiz or as they call it here in the states: trivia night. I’ve written about it before here. We got started in London, going to different Pub Quiz nights in St John’s Wood but ended up becoming “regulars” on Sunday evenings at the Prince of Wales Pub at 138 Upper Richmond Rd, Putney. They have a fun quiz master (Alex) and our team consisted of all New Zealanders and the two of us. Fun times ~ great memories!
Since moving back to Virginia, we’ve tried to keep up the tradition of Pub Quiz night and our friends found a great one at The Flying Fish in Alexandria. The quiz takes place in the lower level and they offer great happy hour specials on both food and bottles of wine. It’s an evening with good friends, yummy food, and I really like the quiz master/DJ (Don) as well. More good times ~ great memories!
Our team finally won FIRST PLACE for the first time ever!! First place includes a $50 credit for future food/drinks at the Flying Fish. Lucky for us we have a sports expert (thanks Joe) on the team which is essential.
My advice if you go to a Pub Quiz (Trivia Night) is take scratch paper and extra pens so you can write down the answers so the other teams don’t hear your answers. Be prepared to tuck your phone/ipad/etc out of the way ~ cheaters are frowned upon.
