November 19: Wednesday Pub Quiz & Scottish Party Preview

Tonight: The Watkins Wednesday Pub Quiz
Time: 7:30 pm

Our good friend (and pub designer) Bill Watkins, he of many pub quizzes, is now captaining the Wednesday Pub Quiz. 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 around the Twin Cities. 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 over-active brain.

(The first question is usually literature, and the last is the brainbuster…which is to say “about cartoons.”)

It really is a wonderful time. Bring your friends, your ringers, even your enemies! Enjoy the midweek, a pie and a pint.


November 23

Scottish Authors and Music at Merlins Rest. Join us and Minnesota Scottish authors Bill Watkins (A Celtic Childhood, Scotland Is Not for the Squeamish, and The Once and Future Celt), Jack and Barbara Maloney (The Wee Mad Road), Barbara and Jack MacKinnon (Where Rivers Meet) and Audrey McClellan for a bit of books and music fun. Dunquin will provide the music. The authors will be discussing their books, Scotland and Scottish life, and all things Scottish! The event will take place from 2:00 – 5:00 pm.

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.
