Wasting no time, the first of August (and the first day of planning and doing Things) involved heading to The Goldhawk in Shepherd’s Bush (W12) for the weekly pub quiz. It’s £2 per player, perhaps not the cheapest quiz in town, but all the kitty goes to the prize fund; two-thirds for the winners, a third for runners up. I was joined by Shorts, Cotler, Rozzy and Jen. Because it was Yorkshire Day (but mostly because this quiz doesn’t have any prizes for team name) we called ourselves ‘Happy Yorkshire Day’.
After an hour and a half and forty-five questions (ten of which were the picture round) it was time to hand it in, with an air of reasonable confidence…
And, with 32 out of 45, second place. £30 for us:
I ended up with all the shrapnel, for what it’s worth. Cotler took the £5 note.
If you go to, or know of, a decent pub quiz in NW, N, E, SE, SW, EC or WC, please let me know. I’d love to join you or form a team of my own. Add a comment here or hit me up on Twitter (@nickjeffery).
