12th of April: Pub Quiz

pubquiz12-04

April’s pub quiz is hosted by esteemed guest host Remco Knooihuijzen. It features real pub quiz questions, and not study-related questions, so there will be no testing on voiceless alveolar fricatives, plums in the ice box, prepositional phrases, green knights, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, or in fact Emily “Kate Bush” Brontë. It *will* be extremely unpredictable and a lot of fun.

So join on the 12th of April in O’Malleys at 21.00 pm for another amazing pub quiz!

Dearest NUTSies,

We’re a few weeks into the third block already and honestly, we need some distraction from all the work our teachers put us up with. The best way to distract ourselves is of course is to party hard at our very own NUTS ‘When I Grow Up’ Theme Party!

We hope you love themed parties as much as we do and dress up as that one thing you wanted to be when you were younger. For some inspiration, check the amazing poster. Entrance is free for members (€2.50 for invitees, bring all the people you know!) and beer, wine and soda only cost €1.50!

We’ll party from 21:00 and on on Monday the 22nd of February. Hope to see you then!

Expectations are running high, so if you are a gifted poet or got a musical talent to share with the world, whether that be singing, playing an instrument or yodeling, sign up now by sending an e-mail to svnuts@gmail.com! Keep in mind that we work on a First Come, First Serve system, as our schedule only allows for a programme that’s 2 to 2.5 hours in length!

If you’re not a musical genius yourself, you can always be the most enthusiastic audience member of all times and come to enjoy an evening of quality entertainment. For free! Because as always. entry is completely free of charge for both members and non-members. Full = full!

Please pay attention to the updated location: as opposed to previous years the event isn’t held in Huis de Beurs anymore, but in the quaint Treslinghuis! It’s about a 20-minute walk from the Grote Markt, or an 11-minute bus ride (to the bus stop ‘Klaprooslaan’) from the Central Station with lines 61 or 65. Alternatively, you can take the number 3 or 4 bus to Lewenborg or Beijum, get off at Zaagmuldersweg, and walk 8 minutes from there.
