Please note: Date of the Food Trivia Quiz evening has been moved from Monday Jan[masked] to Tuesday Jan 7 2014.
Our trivia evenings are always a riot and this one is going to be a whole lotta fun. You are going to learn stuff about food you never knew... and some of it will be stuff you wish you had had never heard! The last time I did this quiz, there were a lot of "Ewwww..... Gross!!!' expressions throughout the room. I promise not to disappoint! LOL
So do you think of yourself as a foodie? Can you guess the answers to questions like these samples below?
1. When Coke was first introduced, what colour was it?
2. Americans eat 18 acres of this every day: (a) Lettuce (b) Pizza (c) Chocolate (d) Spaghetti. Which one is it?
3. Black eyed peas are not really peas. What are they?
If you think you know or can guess the answer to any of the above, then come on down and show us 'yer stuff... you're going to be a star!!
You will assigned to a team of 4 or 5 people and your team will attempt to answer the questions posed by the Trivia Master. Please don't worry that you will be put in an embarrassing position -- you are never asked a question directly. The intent of this evening is just to provide some fun and amusement and not to create stress.
There are two rounds of questions. The teams are mixed up between rounds so that you get to meet a whole new group of people during the second round. At the end of the evening, the people who have demonstrated their superior knowledge of food products and by-products will win tacky prizes.
We start gathering at 7 PM to mingle and chit chat and get to know some of the other members in a casual setting and so that we can get a drink and a bite to eat. The game starts a little while later.
Our game evenings are a perfect event for new members so if you've never been out to one of our events before, this would be a good evening to come out for the first time.
Location & Parking
The pub is located on the ground floor of the office building at 201 City Centre Drive on the south side of Square One. Parking is free.
