What The #$@%?!!

Monday Night at The Cascade Room is Quiz Night. What the #!*@ is Quiz Night you ask? It’s a great way to spend a Monday night, that’s what it is.

Of course I would say that, because I’m your Quiz Mistress.

Q: Where did pub quizzes originate?

A: In the United Kingdom in the 1970s.

The Cascade quiz night began in homage to the great Pub Quiz in Britain and has turned into a “must-do” weekly event in Mount Pleasant.

Each quiz consists of three rounds of questions with ten questions in each round.

Q: What types of questions are asked?

A: General knowledge, Art, Literature, Science, Movies & TV, Geography and History, to name several. There is also a "Name that Tune" question and always photos to identify.

Naturally, there are always rules:

- Maximum 4 members per team (one point deduction per round for every player over)
- No cell phones
- Even if I'm wrong, I'm still right!!!

Prizes? Yes, there are prizes. Unlike in the UK, there is no Jackpot (believe me, it gets competitive enough without $$ being at stake). Instead, the money that you pay to join in (everyone pays $2) goes to local charities chosen by either the winning team or by another participating team. So far we have raised over $9600. As for the prize – the top team win a $25 gift certificate for The Cascade Room or our sister place next door, Habit Lounge and other incentives!

Come with some friends and show us how smart you are. You never know, you might win, or you might leave feeling really thick…either way, you’ll have a laugh.

Registration for Quiz Night starts at 6pm and the quiz starts at 7pm...give or take a few minutes. The next quiz is Monday, February 8th and the following quiz will be on Tuesday, February 16th.

  1. Karen, you are the best quiz mistress! Does anyone out there remember the Hochtaler wine lady - that's Karen. As for quiz night, I never fail to feel like a half-wit and the end of the quiz. Thanks.
