Yelp's PubQuiz II

" Knock, knock" * Who's there.....?
It's Yelp Amsterdam's PubQuiz! The first pubquiz was such a succes; 12 teams competing for the trophy and yours truly hosting the quiz! And yes... I will also create & host this quiz!

I'm sure you all know the concept of a pubquiz and let me tell you, it's fun!
First, gather a group of fellow Yelpers / friends / neighbours / the peeps you know that always win Trivial Pursuit and make a team of 5.
Second, be there in time and we'll hook you up with pens / paper and the information you need to know. We'll have 5 rounds of 10 questions each; every correct answer gives you 1 point and you can also win bonuspoints!

What kind of questions be? Let me tell you the categories:

1) Farm Animals - Oh yes, I grew up in Friesland so prepare for some questions about cows, goats, horses, etc. haha!
2) Amsterdam in their Golden Century! Some history, some fun facts, what will it bring?!
---- You can win a Sunday Brunch with the last question -----
*10-minute break*
3) Music: Thee boybands & girlbands from the '90s. Oh yes, from the BSB to Westlife and back ;-).
4) Photo round: Amsterdam buildings and businesses...
*10-minute break*
5) My favourite TV shows from the 80s! Namely, The A-Team, MacGyver en Airwolf!


Can't wait to see you there, FUN!! The questions will be both in Dutch and English :).
If your teams win, we pay your bill and you win the gorgeous trophy!
