A new year normally means Buenos Aires disappears to the coast for January, but La Cigale was packed for the January Pub Quiz as six teams duked it out for the right to be the first champions of 2016. The prize eventually went to newcomers Cunning Linguists, who pipped The Cat’s Whiskers to the top spot by just half a point. Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass had to settle for third, but their captain and latter day Argentine country bumpkin Daniel Tunnard would like you all to know he’s still the ‘winningest’ Pub Quizzer ever, according to his own statistics.
