If you have any brains, take them to sports bar Paddy O’Shea’s tomorrow night — Wednesday — when it doubles as Paddy O’Stache’s and hosts its second annual Maovember quiz.
Expect quiz master Jo to scramble what’s left of your cells with his brain-teasers. (Tip: When in doubt, choose b.)
And expect a most excellent draw, with tickets just rmb20. Prizes include a box of 10 ciders (four Belgian, four English and two American, value of rmb500), a bottle of Jameson (rmb488), three bottles of Prosecco Jeio (rmb258 each), a mystery box of five wines (who knows!?), two Paddy’s T-shirts (rmb100 each), six 400ml Warsteiner glasses (rmb150), and Scottish beer. Plus, vouchers for Paddy’s.
There is an optional entry fee of rmb100 per team, which gets you a massive tower of Tiger beer with which to inspire answers. All of it goes to funding cataract surgery for elderly men in rural China — the money, not the beer.
So grab some friends, form a team, and use your collective wisdom to secure victory at the Paddy’s Maovember quiz!
