Black Dog Ballroom pub quiz

Beers, cheers and a bag of nuts – Team Confidential gets brainy

Published on October 22nd 2010.

Black Dog Ballroom pub quiz

It’s a quiz Jim, but not as we know it. Eliot Eastwick’s cerebral soiree at the Black Dog Ballroom in the Northern Quarter is not what you’d call the most structured pub quiz. But it’s certainly the most fun.

Confidential loves a good quiz, so a crack team were assembled, armed only with the knowledge that the capital of Peru is Lima. It was decided that the best preparation was to warm up with a few liveners in the main bar.

Onto the ballroom for the quiz itself, Confidential was up against a good half a dozen or so teams. Most of them worked in PR though, so shouldn’t represent too much of a challenge, according to news editor Simon Binns.

You’ve got your picture round, your music round and a good spread of general knowledge, chaotically infused with Eastwick’s special blend of lunacy, which includes a three minute mix containing 100 songs, giving some of the answers away, and casting major moral aspersions on popular recording artists.

Lots of questions, some beers; some more questions, some more beers. Mini-rows started to develop. Team Confidential was coming apart at the seams.

Answer sheets in and time for scores on the doors. Confidential finished...second, To a team including people that worked in PR.

On the upside, we won a birdfeeder and a bag on nuts.

A few more beers, some arguments about Gary Numan’s real name and the first film to be shown in colour (not The Wizard of Oz, it turns out) and the night was over. A success, despite being pipped to the post by two tiny points.

The next quiz is on October 27 if you want to be there please email: Rachel@blackdogballroom.co.uk

Have you put the birdfeeder up anywhere? Tis hard for even early birds to get worms at at this time of year

It's swinging around outside our window as we speak. It's really added to the look and feel of Spinningfields.
