Bringing a 40-year-old European gaming tradition to Mary Brickell Village, Fadó Irish Pub and Restaurant has injected yet another dose of pub culture in Miami. Every Tuesday night, Fadó Irish Pub and Restaurant hosts a weekly pub quiz tournament to test guests’ trivia knowledge and compete against other teams for a variety of prizes offered throughout the night — and to take home the title of pub quiz champion!
On Tuesday, May 17th, Fado introduces a new theme to game night… the 80’s. Guests will need to brush up on their knowledge of Cyndi Lauper, 16 Candles and scrunchies as questions will test their knowledge of pop culture from the 1980’s.
Upon arrival, guests receive a pamphlet of answer sheets to set up teams for eight rounds of trivia. After each round of 10 questions, sheets are brought back up to a designated scorer who tallies up correct answers per each team and inputs them into a spreadsheet that is displayed on one of the pubs flat-screens so teams know their standing after each set. For round winners, a bonus question is offered by the “quiz master” to the top three teams for the opportunity to win additional points or prizes. At the end of the last round, a final tally totaling all of the scores from each round is conducted to determine the quiz victors and to reveal their ultimate prize. To make the game even more challenging, all electronic devices are prohibited from the pub quiz area to keep from having easy access to answers.
In between each round, guests enjoy music courtesy of the pub’s onsite DJ from 8 p.m. to midnight, and take advantage of Fadó’s extensive European draught beer selection including Boddingtons Pub Ale, Harp, Smithwick’s, Hoegaarden, as well as a variety of imported bottled beers, whiskey and scotch offerings, domestic wines and signature cocktails. Guests are also invited to pair their “liquid courage” with some delicious bites from Fadó’s dinner menu as the full menu will be available until midnight and offers tempting options such as the Guinness BBQ Wings, Smithwick’s Mini Burgers, Fish and Chips, Pulled Lamb Sandwich, Smoked Salmon Bites, Cheese Dip and Wedges and more.
