Pub Quiz going on tour—June 13, 2014
It’s official, summer is here. It’s a time to take time to relax, get together with friends and family, spend time outside and release some of that pent up energy leftover from winter. Here at the library, we’ve decided we need to go out and do something as well. That’s why we’ve decided to take Pub Quiz on tour.
Normally Pub Quiz is a monthly program we put on at two local Hastings bars, Keno and Murphy’s Wagon Wheel. It’s a trivia contest where we give out 30 questions based on that months theme (everything from movies and advertising to gardening.) The winning teams in the past have received giftcards to the place the event was located. It’s been a lot of fun, and we have enjoyed putting it on over the last two years or so but we’ve decided summertime is a time get out and try something new.
We will be touring different bars within Hastings for our Pub Quiz Summer Tour. We kicked off this event with our regular stop at Hastings Keno this past Wednesday with “Boyband” trivia. Our next event will be held at downtown at Winestyles/The Bistro Below on Thursday June 26 with “Beatlemania” trivia.
All of our topics will be music related, we are on tour after all. I think I’m most excited for our MTV Music video quiz. By the end of the summer we will have traveled to Rival’s, Wanda’s, and Bullseye’s before finishing up at our other regular stop Murphy’s Wagon Wheel on August 28th.
Along with some new scenery, we will be shaking things up with some new prizes for the Summer Tour. While it’s true most everybody loves a good gift card, we’ve decided to give you something you can take home and re-use over again. You’ll have to come to one of our Pub Quiz events to see what it is though, we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise.
Whether you love music, trivia or just hanging out with your friends at a bar…Pub Quiz is the perfect event for you. It’s free to participate, and we always have a good time.
Even if you don’t think you will know any of the questions, you should still come and check it out. It’s not just your standard question and answer trivia game...you never know what we will throw in there. Sometimes we have music clips, and pictures to identify, and other fun trivia puzzles. If all else, it gives you an excuse to get out of the house for a night. Hope to see you there!
