#4 - Tipsy Cow
There is a good solid circuit of quizzes in Sunderland at the moment, the only problem being a lot of them are on the same night! I attended the quiz at the Tipsy Cow one night earlier in the year without much expectation, but over the weeks the quiz grew into one of the finest in town. The pub hires a local entertainer in to do the quiz and every week he produces a set of quality and testing questions for the ever growing number of teams. The format is nice and simple....30 GK questions, a music round and a themed round of 10 with some pictures thrown in. The host is present throughout the quiz, walking round the tables and hence cheating simply does not happen!
In addition to the normal quiz, there are rounds of card bingo and a great last man standing game which always adds excitement to the end of the night and another chance to win. Sadly, after moving home in August, and with another good quiz on Tuesday on my doorstep, I have had to give up the Tipsy Cow, but if you are in the city centre on a Tuesday night, you won't regret giving it a whirl!
