Thread: Live Pub Quiz in Edmonton?

    Default Live Pub Quiz in Edmonton?

    Hi everyone!
    I am currently living in the Netherlands, but moving to Edmonton later this month. One of my favorite activities is to go out to a pub quiz with some great friends and nice beers! Does anyone know of any LIVE (not those ones they play with the little hand held machine on your own) in Edmonton anywhere?

    Thanks!
    Amanda

    Hmmm... I've never heard or seen these things in person, but I've heard of them on TV.

    Not familiar with pub quiz, I don't think it's common here. "Name that tune" was popular for a while, where a live host would play a short clip of a song and people would guess, which is similar in a way.

    The Claddagh pub in Camrose had a fabulous live quiz night.

    Hmmmm ok thanks for the comments! As per the "name that tune" we have that here as well, but it only consists of 10 songs and is only one round of a larger general knowledge quiz. I knew it would be hard to find since I've mainly only seen them in Europe, but I have played once in Michigan...hey maybe I'll start my own!

    Come to think of it I haven't seen many places that have NTN (handheld computer quiz) anymore. Seems to have had its day. I am guessing with no NFL this year QB1 will be done too!

    Starting one is a spectacular idea. Devanney's in Bonnie Doon would be a great spot and I'm sure the owner would be amenable. I would definitely join you once a month for something like that depending on where it is located.

    there was a great one put on in The Druid downtown once a week. we used to go religiously (and be awesome). but the host has too many things on the go and he only does them a few times a year now.

    I remember going to Fargo's (where Hudson's Whyte Ave is now) and playing NTN while having some beverages and appys. I would definitely go to that if someone started it up again.

    AJS,
    I am seriously thinking about starting one! My friends have a wonderful quiz company here and I could use some of the materials from their quizzes. Will let you know once I am settled if it will be possible!

    NTN is now called Buzztime, I believe Yahoo bought it, and looks like according to their website, is still available at many Edmonton bars/pubs.

    Haven't been in a while, but Oscar's Pub in Sherwood Park has live Quiz nights.

    I know some friends were going to Ceili's downtown for trivia night. Not sure they still run it though.

    Beer Hunter has trivia, I've been going there off and on for that past few years. Sounds like its exactly what you're looking for.

    Wednesday at 7pm - St. Albert location
    Thursday at 7pm - West end location

    Any updates on this? I've heard that Elephant and Castle on Whyte might run something, but that most of the other bars (Celi's, etc) have stopped trivia nights.

    The Faculty Club has a great team trivia night - third Thursday of every month (link). The fella who runs it does a real good job and the lower lounge where it's held has a new bartender/manager. Nice room, good beer selection - terrible chairs though.

    Whyte Ave. Boston Pizza hosts Pub Stumpers.

    Local trivia night hosts Geek and Destroy are hosting an event at Juniper Cafe in Strathearn November 2. Strathearn Community League are sponsoring.

    We've been going to this every week since it started last year. Won every season. The questions are good and there's never any errors, which is one of the issues with homemade questions. They tried a season over the summer, but it was a disaster with only 2-3 teams each night. The fall and winter seasons can have a dozen teams or more. Season prizes are good. 6 McDavid jerseys once, and then 6 tix to an Oilers game another time. Plus free pizza for everyone on the team for a year.

    Pub Stumpers is also offered at a couple other locations on different days if memory serves.

    Further to this, the fall season of this starts on Oct 5 and runs for 12 weeks. The way the season scoring works you pretty much have to be present for every week to have a chance at winning. They have prizes each week of course, like 15% off your tab.
