October 29: The Watkins Quiz Descends!

Tonight: Wednesday Pub Quiz with Bill Watkins
Time: 7:30 pm

I’m thinking now of that commercial during which a man clicks the mouse at his computer and a pop-up emerges to tell him he’s reached the end of the internet and he should go back. We’ve arrived at a similar spot here, it seems, as we may have reached the end of John Dingley’s brain.

Dingley has handed the keys to the knowledge kingdom to our good friend (and pub designer) Bill Watkins, he of many pub quizzes. Bill is a pro and has brought Isles culture to us not only via his memoir trilogy but through the pub quizzes he’s conducted for years. That isn’t to say they are solely about the Isles. True enough, they’re about geography and espionage and Paris Hilton and whatever else strikes his brain.

It’s great fun and you’ll find some refreshing prizes await if you’re the victor. So bring your friends and ringers! Enjoy your mid-week, friends.

See you soon!

Friday, October 31

Friday night is our annual Halloween bash–or what on the Celtic calendar is called Samhain. It’s the Celtic New Year, and it’s a fine reason to celebrate.

We’re rolling it together with our usual Friday night revelry: Kilt Night!

A costume contest will be held and there will be prizes. 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.
