Monthly Quiz Nights with Jan Maree

The last Tuesday night of every month we get all clever on it.  Hours are spent sifting through the crème de la crème of trivia so we can provide you with only the choicest questions, guaranteed to tax even the smartest cookie.  Then we ply you with beer and see how well you get on.  Turns out (much to our surprise) that some people are quite good at this.  Entry is free and if you register your team in advance you'll receive a free tap beer or house wine on the night.  Join us for the best quiz night in town, hosted by New Zealand's premiere female comedian Jan Maree on the last Tuesday of every month.
