Pub Quiz June 2017

The June Pub Quiz has snuck up on me somewhat, so apologies for posting this notice so late – but we’ll be convening in La Cigale at the normal time for the midwinter (or the nearest we’ll get) Pub Quiz on the 12th June. The usual drinks and food will be available, and the questions will of course be different, because if I asked the same ones every month things would get rather dull. Last month saw the Cat’s Whiskers’ long unbeaten run finally ended by Let’s Get Quizzical, so there are new champions in town – see you...

Pub Quiz May 2017

Is it May already? So it is! It’s been a shorter break than usual since our last quiz, owing to the April quiz coming a little later in the month – and no-one seems to have informed the weather either, but it’s time for another Buenos Aires Pub Quiz. Can anyone end the Cat’s Whiskers’ run of victories, which now stretches to six consecutive months? Come on down to La Cigale on Monday, 8th May and maybe you and your team mates could be tasting glory! You can keep up to date with BA Pub Quiz news, as well...

Pub Quiz April 2017

The second Monday in April is … today! But this month’s Buenos Aires Pub Quiz will be held over for a week, since tonight is the beginning of Passover, meaning that Quizmaster Sam will be having dinner with his Argentine family.

So stay in out of the rain tonight, and brave whatever weather Buenos Aires is throwing at us next Monday instead! You can keep up to date with BA Pub...

Pub Quiz March 2017

Autumn is coming – according to the calendar, at least – in Buenos Aires, so join us this month for one last summer quiz before lots of people bizarrely start wearing an extra layer when they leave the house even though the temperature’s still in the mid-to-high twenties (Celsius). Can anyone end Cat’s Whiskers’ run of four quiz wins in a row? Come and have a go if you think you’re smart enough! You can keep up to date with BA Pub Quiz news, as well as get the odd amusing/fascinating bit of trivia on your Facebook wall, by...

Quiz Results January & February 2017

The results are late in for the first two quizzes of 2017 – in the case of January, because I lost them, then found them, then lost them again before I could remember to get them up. Cat’s Whiskers claimed victory in both quizzes, thus marking a fourth consecutive win and opening up an early lead in the 2017 BA Pub Quiz Championship, about which I’ll be posting a few details next week (it’s much less exciting than it sounds). Apologies for the lateness of publication. The next quiz will be this coming Monday – details to follow soon!...
