On Friday we covered the opening of Virgin Atlantic’s pop-up pub, “The Joint Venture”, at 33 New Oxford Street. I said that there would be quizzes during the week but I didn’t have the details.
[EDIT 8am: apparently the quiz tonight is for pre-invited groups so you should not turn up purely for that]
Yesterday reader Jonathan sent me this:
“Thank you for your posts about “The Joint Venture”. I went to the quiz last night and my team took home 3rd prize (which was a gift bag with bottles of beer and pint glasses). It was good fun and being an American expat was a big advantage.
First prize was exactly as advertised — free economy tickets for each member of the four person team. The team that won appeared to be pub quiz pros. They finished with about 10% more points than the runner up.
If any of your readers are planning to go to the second competition on Wednesday, you may want to give them a heads up on a few things. There isn’t much space upstairs so only 10 teams are allowed to compete. Arrive early — yesterday the slots were filled before 7 for the 8 pm start. The sign up sheet is with the flight attendants.”
Good luck to anyone who pops down there tonight.
You can learn more about the pub, which is open until Sunday, on the Virgin Atlantic site here.
