McGettigan’s virtual pub quiz is now happening every Tuesday from 8pm. The quiz features challenging multiple-choice questions that can be answered directly from your device on myquiz.org and answers are submitted live from each player. There are top prizes up for grabs including a brunch and staycation package for two at McGettigan’s JLT, dinner and grape for two at your local McGettigan’s, and a slap-up brekkie for four at McGettigan’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah. The prizes can be redeemed once it is safe to do so. It’s a first come, first served basis and it’s easy to join, too – just head to myquiz.org and quizmaster Jono will be sharing the quiz code on the McGettigan’s Facebook page, which can be found here. It’s not a proper pub quiz without some proper pub grub, right? You can get 20 percent off the entire menu between 5pm and 7pm when ordering through Deliveroo.
Free. Tue 8pm. Ongoing. www.myquiz.org.

If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably spent the past few evenings and weekends watching back-to-back series and movies on Netflix. Well, it’s time to put all that Netflix knowledge to good use as Dubai’s Trophy Room is hosting a virtual Netflix-themed this Wednesday (April 8). The free-to-enter quiz kicks off at 8pm and is designed to put your knowledge to the test over four rounds with ten questions per round. The quiz will take about 45 minutes in total and will be streamed via Instagram – all you need is WiFi and you’re good to go. Who said spending endless hours binge-watching the latest movies and series on Netflix was a waste of time?

Friday April 10
Proving to be a mega success last weekend, Dubai’s Reform Social & Grill is back with another virtual pub quiz-meets-brunch. Taking place this Friday (April 10) between 1pm and 3pm, and with an Easter theme, quizzers can expect general knowledge questions and interactive rounds, including a ‘guess this tune’ round. A traditional British roast will be delivered to your door and you can also pre-order an Easter egg painting kit to be included in your delivery for an extra Dhs60. The roast is Dhs180 for two people or Dhs280 for four with the option between chicken, beef and a veggie-friendly roast. There will be prizes for first, second and third place and if you fancy getting a head start with those points, teams wearing Easter-themed fancy dress will be awarded ten extra bonus points. If there was ever a time to dig that bunny onesie out. Spaces are on first come, first served basis and all you have to do to participate is register your team and prepay for your roast by 7pm on Thursday April 8. Call 052 794 1117 to book your spot and request a prepayment form. Once the payment has been received you’ll receive a Zoom link for the quiz.
Dhs180 (two people), Dhs280 (four people). Fri Apr 10, 1pm-3pm, www.reformsocialgrill.ae (052 794 1117).
