Pub Quizzes. I don't go to one for ages, then two come along in one week.
Last night we went to the quiz in my favourite pub (the one that does pints of Pimms for £3). As there were seven of us, we had to divide into two teams. It was a thrilling battle as the leader changed with each round - we were strong on General Knowledge and Film & TV, but rubbish on Science & Nature and surprisingly poor on Sport, given my OH's devotion to it.
It ended in a four way tie - a unique moment in the pub's history apparently. We had to answer three questions and much to my surprise, our team won. £30 shared between four of us, plus a bottle of champagne, which we graciously shared with our friends on the other team (after 4 Pimms, I wasn't really looking for more to drink and I failed miserably to get up to go swimming this morning).
After the quiz had finished, one of the regulars, Clyde, got behind the bar and did a partial strip-tease to that stripper music. It was most embarrassing, but I do like going to a pub that has that proper 'locals' atmosphere. Our friends whose actual local it is, are looking to buy somewhere soon so won't be staying around that area (v. expensive) which will be a great shame as I do like this pub. We could still go but it would seem a bit strange if we were all having to travel from afar to get there.
