Tonight: the Watkins Wednesday Pub Quiz!
Time: 7:30 pm
Right! Your publican John 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 heâ€™s conducted for years. That isnâ€™t to say they are solely about the Isles. True enough, theyâ€™re about geography and espionage and Paris Hilton and whatever else strikes his over-active brain.
Itâ€™s great fun. So bring your friends and ringers! Enjoy your mid-week, friends.
NEXT KNIT NIGHT
It seems a curious sight, but itâ€™s an absolute blast. Knitters from the Twin Cities gather here at Merlins every month to trade stories, further their skills, and, all in all, take down a few pints. We love â€˜em dearly.
For those interested in learning more or perhaps joining them, theyâ€™ll be here Friday, November 14 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. In the meantime, check out Ravelry.com. Itâ€™s a wonderful resource for knitting and a well-done website. Look for the Crafty in Minnesota participants. Another site you might explore is Etsy.com, where you can find a good number of Minnesotans posting their handmade work for sale.
NEXT BIRDS & BEERS GATHERING
The Birdchick has announced the next Birds & Beers gathering over on her Birdchick blog. We’ll welcome Sharon Stiteler and friends back in the pub on Tuesday, November 18, at 6:00 pm.
Birds and Beers is an informal gathering of birders of all ages. If youâ€™re a hardcore lister or a casual backyard birder or someone who just wants to know what this whole birding thing is about, then youâ€™re invited.
Join â€˜em and join us!
