Coming Soon...Londonist Pub Quiz

RIQuiz.jpg
Happy fact-finders at a recent Royal Institution pub quiz.

It's a quiz, in a bar, with prizes!

We can't claim to be the first to come up with that concept. But, by the spectacles of Bob Holness, we're going to use the opportunity to fact you till you fart.

Do you know the difference between Ganton Street and Panton Street? Can you name the Tube stations that contain all the vowels? Think you can work out how many Thames Bridges there are in Zone 1? None of those questions will actually be in the quiz, but you get the idea.

If you're want to wit your pits in a contest of London-themed trivia, or just hang out in a nice bar while genial people read out odd questions, then sign up for the Londonist Pub Quiz - June 9th at the Royal Institution in Mayfair (roughly 7pm-9pm).

Yes, the Royal Institution. We know it's not a pub, but it does contain the rather beautiful Time and Space bar. And with such a rich history (10 chemical elements discovered on site, Michael Faraday and Humphry Davy as alumni), what venue could be better for a spot of head-scratching? If you've never visited before, this is the perfect opportunity to get to know one of London's lesser-known but much-treasured venues.

To sign up: Send an email (subject heading: Londonist quiz) to tips@londonist.com, giving the estimated number of people in your team (there's no upper limit, but the bigger the team, the less winnings you'll each get, should you triumph). Entrance will be £2 per person, payable on the night, with all proceeds going to a local charity. The winning team will receive a goody-bag of cool London stuff.
