August 27: Pub Quiz Tonight & Thursday Preview

Tonight: Specialist Pub Quiz
Time: 7:30 pm
Music: The weekly Folk Jam (follows the quiz)

First, a preview of tomorrow:


On Thursday, August 28, Cathy Mosher and Bobby Ekstrand–the Mosher/Ekstrand Experiment–will be joined by Betsy Neil on fiddle and Doug Lohman on bass.  When added to M&E, Neil and Lohman create Nuvo Buffalo!

So pop in on Thursday to get the very best of both acts.

There will be harmony singing, swinging guitar and fiddle, and maybe even a yodel or two. Cheers!

Monday through Thursday

Whether it’s been a hard day or a really lovely one, we invite you up for after work specials here at Merlins Rest. From 4:00 – 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, we’re offering $3.75 import pints–and we’ve got some of the best: Guinness, Belhaven, Fuller’s, etc. Other beer and liquor specials will be available too, as will food specials on cheese dips, lamb chops and more. We’re even going to throw in some prize drawings.

Wednesday, August 27

Join us for John Dingley’s mid-week torture session: the Specialist Pub Quiz. It’s governed by a theme or single topic (as opposed to Sunday night’s general interest quiz).The details: 25 questions, 2 points per question (answered correctly), teams of up to four. Charge? Free, of course! That’s how a pub quiz should be. Participants get a point for their participation, and those participation points accrue each week and are added to your final quiz score. So if you score 38 and this is your 10th quiz, you have a 48. Why is this important? When someone scores a 50, they win the pot! As John puts up to $40 each week in, it can become quite a bit.

The Folk Jam follows.
