Default Has War Been Declared on BE ME?

Announcement of a 'rival' quiz night has been denounced by Blue Cat as 'just a meeting of a few friends'..

but its a quiz night.. it's on Monday.. and it's at 8.30pm.. and it's not at Aussie Legends (some might say thank god)..

yes meeting a few friends who don't post on here, but if anyone from here wishes to join us they are more than welcome

Nelsons is walking distance from my place which sure beats taking the car or getting a Cab down to Ozzie Legends

It's New Dubai v Old Dubai..

agree that Satwa is an absolute faking nightmare to get to in a car/taxi at that time of night, I'm sure that is what puts a lot of people off - also it's a long way for someone living ranches/springs/tecom/marina..

I would never have gone there if it wasn't for the quiz being held there...but the staff are all very friendly, the guy that runs the quiz is doing it in a way I like. It's just an avarage pub with a pooltable and TVscreens, but I wouldn't call it rough or anything, not on the quiznights at least. I've never witnessed any hassle going on and you can just sit there afterwards and have a drink and a laugh so I am quite happy to go there. Makes a nice change from all the so called upmarket places.

I like both to be honest...for me the pub quiz thing belongs in a place like Aussies for some reason, I wouldn't prefer it to be in some glitzy place, and I like to just put on jeans and a Tshirt and be done with it...and on other nights I like to dress up a bit and go somewhere else...you can enjoy both you know...

Have to admit, having to allow an hour and half upwards to get from Springs down there is a bit of a nightmare. Nelsons is 10 minutes away, a nice pub (a la Longs..) and, well, Im usually there anyway!!

Smoking corner down at the pool table.. TBH, went in there a couple of months ago and was about to make my way down to the front door for an after dinner fag when the waitress pointed it out to me. You honestly couldnt smell it over beside the windows at the bar..
