Cockles and Mussels a wine a wine O!
A rowdy crowd filled the bar at the Crabtree last night, so it looked like a busy if noisy night for the quiz. Turned out it was 20 or so Pub managers and Head chefs on a free bar tab! They were whisked upstairs to the events room at the onset of the quiz and the rest of the night was conducted with the usual decorum. Some new teams to welcome were Freudian Slip, an all female team who challenged the regulars and came a respectable 3rd place. Newbies Cardiff Massive returned with reinforcements after claiming the 2nd-to-last bottle of wine the previous week; they faired better, but went home empty handed in 5th place. Sieving for Steve had a strong 1st half sitting in joint 1st place at the break, only to be overtaken by a strong challenge from 3-man team Small Mussels, who stormed to a 4-point lead as well as taking a free drink and the bonus point for the anagram!
A shout should also go out to the couple who joined as an after-thought and took home the much-coveted 2nd-to-last bottle of wine - the Locals!
As the nights draw in and the garden empties, we look forward to many busy night's quizzing to come!
