Style and Grace

A deeply international quiz last night at the Smart City. We had people from Australia and New Zealand and the USA (as e often do) but the exotic-quotient was upped by teams from the Netherlands and from Mexico.

Despite all of this it was Grace’s team who shone through and took the booze and the cash.

Well done to Rachel for holding her nerve in the final trivia challenge and correctly remembering that the stuff that’s kept in a woman’s ovaries is eggs.

And special mention to Tim who, despite his winning joke in the jokes round, says he definitely does NOT hate gay people.

LGBT Teens Swamp Smart City Quiz

Last night’s quiz at the Smart City Cafe was gayer than flamingos of the same sex making love in a boutique. The reason? A visiting LGBT Worldwide Youth Conference took over the quiz.

Disappointingly, the gay teams refrained from camping it up and the only evidence of their artistic natures came in the Moonwalk contest which was ably nailed by a Norwegian bloke and a girl from Holland.

Meanwhile, our regular teams floundered like fish in a net and failed to trouble the lead, with the possible exception of Freudian Slip who’s direct insults of me in the jokes rounds didn’t work as well as the last time they tried that tactic.

Freudian Slip are now first place overall in the December League Table

VIKITERRANIAN were the winning team – they took the booze and then a little bit of trivia action from the geezer with the specs (can’t Remember his name – was it Conrad?) secured the £20 prize for the team.

How could anyone not want this?

Excellent performance and congratulatioins to VIKITERRAINIAN. Scorn, however, is reserved for ELIZABETH LGBT TAYLOR who shunned the awesome plastic Mum-Ra-style Egyptian skull toy.

After winning the jokes rounds with some crap about a cup of tea – they showed no interest whatsoever in the best prize I’ve given away for ages. Like a cross between Iron Maiden and Thudnercats. Duh! Oh well – I get to pick it up and give it away again at the next quiz. Roll on Monday.

Germans & Americans- Unstoppable Combo

Germany and America are two of the world’s most no-nonsense countries EVER and the two combined to create a special winning force last night at the Smart City Cafe.

The HIGH STRET HI-JACKERS wiped the floor with the various lily-livered Brits, Aussies and Kiwis to take the booze and the £100,000 (chance).

Unfortunately Scott was rubbish at scratching the scratchcard and came away with NOTHING!

Maybe next week! Smart City quiz returns next week at 8.30pm on Thursday. See you then. Join the Smart City Quiz Facebook Group to receive news of the cheat phrase for next week.

Well done also to the SINGLE WITH LADIES team who survived being ID’d, seconds after winning an orange Bacardi Breezer for being completely rubbish after the first two rounds. Two humiliations for the price of one, bravely borne.

No Irish People To Blame This Week

Four teams battled it out at the SCH last night, including a pair of Israelis who came last but definitely scored the highest ever score by an Israeli team at the quiz.

In the end, it was NORWEGIAN CHEESE who took the title, ruthlessly pouncing on the mistakes of the G&T’s like a tiger on a chicken. The vodka was theirs.

And this week, the G & T’s didn’t even have an Irish element in the team to take the blame.

I’ve heard the bar is getting a refurb which will make it more like a ‘style bar’ and less like a hotel foyer. This will be happening in December. Quiz moves to Thursday next week for one week and then we’ll be back in January.
