Pub Quiz in Basel?

Hi all,

After a quick trawl of the forum I realised Zurich seems to be the place for that wonder of wonders, the pub quiz - but what about Basel?

Anyone know of any going on? Otherwise I'd be up for trying to organise something...

Cheers.

There is no regular organized pub quiz event in Basel. The only pub i know of that does a quiz night is Pickwick's, on Sundays. Not sure if its every week or not. I would be interested to come along if you organize something.

Hmm, may have to put my organising hat on then... I'm afraid I'm not a big fan of Pickwicks.

I think McGuinness's would be a great place to have one - the layout would be perfect for a quiz [size of the place, stage/mic/speaker system].

I'll see what I can do.

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

At our book club chat yesterday we enthused about the chance of a pub quiz in Basel - so if you need more encouragement (or even a helping hand) - here it is. Plenty of us would love it

Just make sure you don't wear baseball caps. The owner has banned them.

I know a few people who would be up for a quiz though so this is a great idea

Was it good fun or lame? Has anyone else been to the one at Pickwicks?

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

Is this a General Knowledge quiz or something totally different? It's been years since I did any serious quizzing.

I'm quite interested to join in and up to help out in the organisation as well. Will send you a pm.

Why would one need a mic/speaker system

A liitle bit of projection is all that's required, surely?

I can't believe you just used the words McGuinness and lovely folk in the same sentence. The bar staff may be lovely but as for the owner, well I'll say nothing!

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

Hi all,

Huge apology for the massive delay, the usual crap: life got on the way etc.

travnett - I see your point, yes, the bar staff are lovely and the owner... well, an acquired taste I suppose.

Would definitely appreciate a hand - will be in touch via pm to those that offered.

I'm not around this week, but will be in town next week with my bestest organising hat on.

Cheers

Brendan's lovely once you get to know him.

(Can't see him being up for a pub quiz though )
