I love a good pub quiz and I love music (most people say I have terrible music taste but, I say eclectic) so when I was invited to a charity music quiz at Cape (Nr Bank, London) I thought it was the perfect opportunity to show off and flex my music brain. The quiz was
arranged by Crazy Cow Events to raise money for the Crazy Cow Kilimanjaro Climb. You’d have to be crazy, rather them than me!
The bar itself was lush! When we went in, it was only half empty and the atmosphere was already buzzing. We sat on the ground floor, although the upstairs looked spacious. Just as we started to get settled, look who turned up! Only the big cheese mr CEO himself, check out Mark with Helen our Central Reservation Manager!
Here is a picture of the Crazy Cow girls and Laura our London sales manager and general nutter! – They are lovely despite my camera trying to make everyone evil! Robyn on the left believes a pair of Roxy stiletto hiking boots will get her up there and Melanie is apparently….SCARED! Helen is apparently “Bricking it – but is very excited and chuffed about to eating loads” and Robyn, the crackpot who came up with the idea is also very excited.
Right to left: Laura, Melanie and Robyn
Our entry £5 ticket included food and considering how much food we got it was a total BARGIN! The roasted vegetable and cheese baguette slices and garlic mushrooms were so so so yummy. Although some people just couldn’t fit enough chips in their mouths. *cough cough – No names who!*
So once we fed and watered, the quiz began! The first round was “guess the song”, kicked assed with 16/20, the second round was picture round, third round was “guess the female singer” – Once again kicked ass. After the third round we were on 46/60 and feeling hopeful. That’s where it all went to pot though. Round 5 was general knowledge and round 6 was “guess the TV theme”. As 23yr old, it’s hardly likely I’m going to the theme tune to Taggart and Touch of Frost. I may be still sulking but I say it was unfair. Even after a few sneaky Google cheat answers, we ended on a TERRIBLE score, I’ve shamed myself. 😦
The winners of the quiz were team “Greeting pop pickers” who got a MASSIVE 76/100. They deserved a £50 bar tab for being that awesome i reckon.

The girls raised £950 which is absolutely amazing. Congratulations to them! For more information on the charity, the climb and to donate your pennies visit: http://www.justgiving.com/crazycowclimb
