Sunday Pub Quiz & Scottish Blow-Out

The capital of Ecuador is Quito. General Grant’s favorite horse was named Cincinnati, though he had others too (including the confidence-sapping Methuselah). And Wales’ quietest city (since John Dingley came to America) is Builth Wells…though this last one has not been scientifically proven.

It’s Sunday, friends, and that means the Sunday Pub Quiz! Join our resident Welsh publican, Ring-a-Ding Dingley, as he calls out 25 brainbusters to your trivia teams of up to four members. We’re having a drink and think and you’re invited. Get yourself a pint, a playing card and a pencil. Write your answers down, tell some tales between questions, and all in all enjoy this spirited way into the week.

Sam Fiske will also be in the pub to provide the jazz an hour before and 30 minutes after the quiz. Sam’s Sandwich!


Not necessarily sandwiches, but the food (and music) at Merlins Rest. We would like to say thanks to Tim for writing to the site with the following thought:

In tonight with a friend who’d never been to Merlin’s, delighted again by the ambience and by Papa John and the Hot Club of East Lake. Bring them back again! BTW the food has gotten even better- much larger selection. Had the Brit-style F&C tonight, looking forward to the pasty next time.

Hey, man: thank you! Much appreciated.


Saturday, February 16, is Scottish Night! The Scottish Ramble’s first day will conclude in downtown St. Paul, and then we’ll gather here in the pub for a night of Scottish revelry: Cock-a-Leekie Soup, libations, kilts and more. We had a blast on Burns Night. We’re going to have a blast again. All are invited.


We’ve got a special menu on Valentine’s Day. Read about it on our Events page.
