City Slickers

City Slickers Pub Quiz

And so finally the most hotly anticipated and competitive night of the Leicester Networking Calendar finally arrived! Thursday 25 April saw Fat Cats as the venue playing host to 70 of Leicester’s finest professional minds for the City Slickers Annual Quiz.

Guests began the night greeted by a short speech from Vijay Sanghani of the event’s kind sponsors, Property Search Group. Following the introductions, Danny and Tom (our answer to Ant and Dec) took the mic to commence the competition. Guests were invited to invent their own names. Some ranged from the less original “Legs 11 – Team 11”, to the more topical “Triple Dip” (for all City Slickers enthusiasts reading this write up years in the future, 25 April 2013 was the date the media announced that the UK was firmly in a Triple Dip recession).

With the easy bit done, guests were forced to stretch the grey matter on such rounds as Film and TV and Geography, and required to delve in to the depths of their obscure knowledge to identify D-List celebs from years gone by (Chesney who)?! Without a doubt the most entertaining round was an X-Factor style Karaoke music round, with Danny and Tom tunefully belting out the first lines of such classics as Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall, but struggling slightly with the high notes of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

At the end of the rounds, the scores were tallied, revealing that modesty can often be the best policy. The “No Hopers” surpassed even their own expectations by being crowned champions, and each member was accordingly rewarded with a £20 Highcross voucher.

Triple Dip came last, and as such were presented as the unfortunate recipients of the Wooden Spoon.

Despite differing levels of satisfaction with each guest’s team ranking, an entertaining evening was had by all, some displaying a more competitive edge than others.

Stay posted for our next event, which is set to be a fun filled evening of live music. Further details will follow at a later date.
