Pub Goers - The Garibaldi Pub Quiz

Greeting gentile Pub Goers,

We've been to this quiz now & rather like it. Format seems to be 8 rounds including a music & picture round. We need to divide into teams of Four, which we'll do randomly unless anyone wants to quiz with particular mates. The quiz starts at 8.30, so we should get there before that (7.30). 

So, far there's been plenty of space at that time. However, we'd be fools to assume that, so:

1) Please only RSVP ("yes") if you are sure you will be coming (truly unforeseen events notwithstanding) 

2) Remember the later you turn up, the less likely you are to get a seat - I'll be  there 7.30 sharp! Let me know if you do plan to be later - probably best to set a limit of 8.30 till we know how this visit pans out. Even better, let me know if you definitely plan to be on time.

3) Since the pub is quite small, until we've seen how the land lies I've put an RSVP limit on this event. I may change that randomly ('cos I'm like that :)

The The Garibaldi (61 Albert Street, AL1 1RT) is good no nonsense Fullers Pub (with plenty of standard pub fare drinkwise). The website states that food is available from 6.00 - 8.30. I think they closed the kitchen before 8.15 (so, better get in somewhat before that if you're peckish) assume this will still be the case on Quiz nights (?) (otherwise, off to the chip shop :)

I know they have a TV in this pub (See topics under "When I come to power/crimes punishable by death"). But it doesn't show anything unpleasant (i.e. football) on quiz night (so far....).

Make sure you know where the pub is. Here's a link to a map: http://goo.gl/maps/iWby8

I'll be wearing an easily identifiable T-Shirt - my 'Dark Rider' T-Shirt:


Any problems finding us in the pub, phone/text me on[masked]

In the future we may try other pubs, nights, change format/numbers, etc - so any/all views on that are welcome.

Cheers

Pete
