It’s a new year (are we still allowed to call it that?) and time for a new IQuiz. Yes, that somewhat novel — in a Bogotá context anyway — night out that has taken the city by, um, storm. Well a sort of inconspicuous storm.

IQuiz: a colourful event!

It was a case of ‘eight not out’ last year with each of them being fairly successful for a fledgling event. The concept of a pub table quiz generally doesn’t require explaining to Western expats, but for some Colombians it does. It’s not a ‘serious’ test of one’s knowledge, just a few differently-themed rounds of generally light-hearted questions in a fun, slightly alcohol-fuelled (if that’s your wont) environment. And you do it with company; friends and/or strangers. You could call it — at a stretch — salsa for those who don’t want to get off their seats.

This time, for the first one of 2016, we’re trialling a new venue; the idea always has been that IQuiz can be a moveable feast. So after alternating between The Pub‘s (or the ‘Irish Pub’ as some call it) La Candelaría and Zona T venues, for this latest renewal we’re at the newly opened Pub House on Carrera Séptima with Calle 51 in Chapinero.

As a heads-up for this latest edition (keep it to yourself), we’ve got an audio round based on Oscar-winning songs, a picture round where you’ve to name the beer from its logo, a crossword puzzle round, a round of ‘firsts’ and a couple of general knowledge rounds.

Now while a quiz is nothing without the participants (and thanks to all those who have come and, hopefully, are going to come), having decent prizes also helps. In this regard, our host venues have been helpful providing free drinks and discounts while the trophy prize has come courtesy of the Irish whiskey Tullamore DEW. Ron Medellín is also on board this time around. The sponsorship is of course well received; more is always welcome, too!

So if you find yourself looking for something to do on Thursday February 18th, you could do worse than check out IQuiz “The Bogotá Pub Quiz”; honestly, you could. The Facebook event page has all the details. Plus, with St Patrick’s Day coming up next month, we’re in line to have an IQuiz special to celebrate that. What fun times ahead; here’s hoping anyway!

*For an idea of what to expect, below was our picture round from the last quiz. How many of the characters do you know? (No cheating!):
