Saturday 13th November from 8pm ’til Late
It’s the most difficult pub quiz you’ve even attended — and every penny raised goes towards printing and other costs of this most individual, independent and inspiring of magazines.
It’s a quiz so hard, that you’re allowed to cheat. It’s a test of your logic, your search powers and your network as much as your general knowledge. Bring mobiles, laptops, dongles, encyclopedias, get a phone-a-friend poised… you’ll need them.
There are four rounds, each set and judged by a King, and a blockbuster that would block buster out. Special guest royalty to be announced… watch this purple space.
It’s £5 per person, and you can have any number in a teams up to 6. But the grand prize is the average weight of team members in booze (we choose the booze, it’ll be available to take away), so not only do you want fat lads you want as small a number as possible (fat lasses too, but we didn’t want to mention it).
Buy your ticket now in advance — £5
You get a paypal receipt, we get your name. It’ll be on the door. Payment on the door is fine, but a ticket guarantees entry.
It’s at the corner of Church Street, and Cornwall Street, Birmingham City Centre. It’s two minutes walk from Snow Hill station, one block out of town from the Urban Coffee Co.
By car: You can find Church St parallel to Livery Street. There’s plenty of free on-street parking nearby, there are meters but they are free after 6pm
The pub claims to have wifi “via the cloud” and is also near enough to a BT Openzone wifi hotspot to get good coverage (and this one is free on iPhone via O2, I’ve checked) — BUT connectivity is up to you, your 3G phones, tethering, mi-fis and dongles are a good bring. Go on bring the Daily Mirror big book of facts too.
