There's a regular weekly Sunday night pub quiz being held at the Shamrock Irish pub in Wollishofen in Zurich.

044 482 10 62

It's getting very popular now. It's lively, free to enter and a good laugh. Get there early to get a good table. There are more & more teams each week. If you come alone or in a couple, quizmaster Jim or Bart the everso friendly owner can pair you up with another team.

The winners get 50CHF. Second win 25CHF (or a round of drinks - not bad considering it costs nothing).

Anyhow it's free and something fun and interesting to do on a Sunday night (7pm till 9pm so not too late for Monday morning). Laughs aplenty.

They (friendly Irish owner Bart and his team) also serve tasty food from their Irish/British menu too until late. New summer menu coming soon. You can also dine or drink outside on the newly opened sun terrace.

Different teams win it each week.

Let's get ready to rumble. HINT there seems to be a Desperate Housewives question every week for some reason.
I was surprised there was no Susan Boyle question yesterday.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Sounds great! Will see if I can make it next time...
I like trivia, will have to focus more on reading the newspapers to stay up with current events... that's where I always fall down... :/

btw, as somebody else mentioned, this should probably be in the Social Events, not Commercial... unless somebody gets a kick-back from the proprietor for bringing us along to their pub?

I've been a few times now and like it a lot. The questions are well suited to the international audience and there is a good mix of hard and not too hard questions.

A few of us will be there tonight...

Is this still the crowd puller it always was? Am thinking of dropping in for some pub-grub and was hoping to catch up with some of the quizzers.

They often have 80 people, in 14-20 teams. There are more now in Summer and they use the outside area too.

Thanks for the post. I've heard lots of good feedback about this night and have been meaning to go for some time.

Will pull my finger out and get down there when I'm back in Zurich!

It can be a fun night - I've been twice now, and the questions are challenging and fun. Also, the atmosphere's usually pretty good - although this could depend a lot on your team!
