Winter pub nights in Cape Town – get quizzing
Is your brain fighting fit and ready for action? Give it a workout at Quiz Night. These evening get-togethers for Cape Town’s sharpest minds are the perfect place to meet up with like-minded locals during your luxury Cape Town winter holiday.
Forget about your weekday woes with the whizz kids in Harfield Village. Oblivion has been running their popular quiz evenings for almost 10 years and they haven’t run out of questions yet. Top up your brain power with a sauvignon blanc or mellow out with a merlot during your round but be sure to book in advance. The competition is tough at this southern suburbs wine bar and entry is just R20.
Questions from both sides of the equator are on the cards at The Forex Bar in Obs, where you can expect a range of song snippets, cryptic clues and movie clips to test your mental mettle. Teams of six go head to head in these challenges for free shots, a R200 bar tab and lots of other goodies. Entry is free.
Clued up in Kenilworth
Everyone’s a winner at Fat Harry’s every second Tuesday, where R20 gets you in the door and you can get spot prizes just for showing up. Live music, AAA grade steaks and craft beers add to the attraction of this popular spot on 2nd Avenue.
Book your spot at the Stoep and Swing in Simons Town or JC Brasserie and Pub in Zonnebloem for a battle of the brainboxes on Wednesday nights. Great prizes, free meals and luxury Cape Town craft beers complete the picture at these intellectual hotspots.
Thursday Knead to know
If you are aware that Voldemort was 71 years old when he died in the Battle of Hogwarts or at least know more than Jon Snow, head to one of the themed Quiz Nights at Knead Bakery in Palmyra or Sea Point (check the website to confirm Quiz Night venues). Just R50 gets you in the door and you can join up with 5 other singles, or bring your own team of brainiest best friends. Thursday nights are quiz night at this Claremont eatery where indulgent burgers rub shoulders with a range of healthy brainpower eats.
Get your grey matter into gear and make it a night to remember at one of Cape Town’s fun social quiz evenings.
