We're taking a break from the Ravens RFC quiz to check out the Prohibition Cabaret Bar's Wednesday night offering instead. If we pull together the finest minds of the group, I'm sure that we can field a quiz-busting team and pocket the prize.
Here's what Prohibition says about its quiz:
"Join our quizmaster Danny ‘Eyeballs’ for four rounds of quizzical quandary, including General Knowledge, Film & TV, Wild Card and Music. Pit your wits against other teams to win the cash prize, or aim for last place to take home the coveted loser’s biscuit! £1 entry per player. Teams of up to 6. Doors 6pm. Quiz starts 8.30pm."
Meet at 7PM for the usual team talk.
This same walk was our first event after the winter lockdown, but on that occasion we went in the opposite direction: Tynemouth to Whitley Bay. We were lucky with the weather and turnout, which made it a really enjoyable experience. Let's hope the weather's kind to us again.
We'll meet outside Whitley Bay Metro station at 11AM, walk down towards the seafront, then follow the path to Tynemouth. If people were interested, we could drop into a café along the route or in Tynemouth itself. We'll finish by having a wander through the weekend market at Tynemouth Metro station.
The walk is 2.3 miles. It takes about 45-60 minutes at a leisurely pace. Dogs and children welcome.
The 25th instalment in the James Bond series has been marred by creative differences, change of director and a worldwide pandemic. But, it’s finally here! This is widely rumoured to be Daniel Craig’s last venture as 007, promising to tie up narratives and “come to an emotionally satisfying conclusion.” Reprised roles from Naomie Harris (Moonlight, 28 Days Later), Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, In Bruges), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) and Christopher Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Kopfstand) make it a star-studded cast.
Come and join us to see the film at the Tyneside Cinema. You need to buy your own ticket. Tickets are priced at £1.00-£10.75 (+£1.40 booking fee) from https://tynesidecinema.co.uk/book-online/177006. I have mine. I'm in F6. While we might not be able to sit together as a group, we could meet beforehand in the Tyneside Café at 5PM or hang around afterwards and go for a drink.
Please note that the film is due to start at 5.40PM, but films at the Tyneside are always preceded by 20 minutes of ads and trailers, so don't worry if you can't make it to the cinema before 6PM.
