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

http://map.search.ch/zuerich/studackerstr.1
044 482 10 62

It's got very popular now.
It's lively, free to enter and a good laugh.
As it's got more and more popular you need to get there fairly early to get a table. I would recommend aiming by 6:30pm (or outside later during the summer) to be on the safe side.
But if the tables are all taken you can ask if people can squeeze up, or you can sit / stand at the bar or ask Bart if he can find you some where to sit. During the summer, some people have even participated whilst sitting on the tables on the sun terrace!

The smoking ban comes into force on 1st May, so we can see if Bart has returned the two extractor units fitted so the air wasn't too smokey.

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. You can even ask complete strangers if you can join them, it really is that friendly. Many members from this Forum attend regularly so you may even make new acquaintences.

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 (8:00pm till 10:30pm so not that late for Monday morning). Laughs aplenty.

They (friendly Irish owner Bart and his team) also serve nice food from the Irish/British menu until late. You can also dine or drink outside on the sun terrace.

Different teams seem to win each week but it's more for the fun than the 'sport'.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: The Shamrock Sunday Evening Pub Quiz

I think it is always a great end to the weekend, and I find the food really nice, and comparatively well priced.

I never care where we come, as long as we beat Brett

EDIT: Sorry higgybaby, but it ends normally after 10, not 9 as stated above.

Apparently, the secret is to answer more questions correctly than any other team.

Wouldn't that make you an alternator, rather than a starter?

8pm in the summer.

You can always join one of the other teams if you come as a single.

Re: The Shamrock Sunday Evening Pub Quiz

It is HashBrown's fault that we only came 3rd last week.

He missed some really straightforward questions

If I hadn't been overruled on two questions by above captain, we would have come in 2nd at least.

But it is true, I was unsettled due to late arrival and lack of foreplay.
