Darts and shuffleboard are my kinda bar games but I wasn’t going to let that get in the way of having a lot of fun at Dog & Duck’s weekly Quiz Night. After grabbing a willing friend, Teri Edmonds from If the Shoe Fits, we put our two coconuts together to form one of the many teams that came down for the Kihei bar’s popular Thursday night trivia competition.
Round One is always current events (which includes sports). Round Two is general knowledge. Then there’s a Picture Round hooked to that week’s theme. Finally, there’s a Music Round. What you don’t know, you make up in smart ass-y sarcastic answers.
The hosts, Laura Mendolia and Al Garr, have written all of the questions every seven days for the last five years. They say it’s still fun, even though every week they also have to come up with a new theme. The week I jumped in it was Disney, some other fun ones have been Mardi Gras masks, “Boobs, Butt or Shoulder” and famous moms. The final Thursday of the month they raffle off a grand prize for the top five teams at quiz night. Last Thursday, the Aquaholics team took home a whale watch for six with Boss Hogs.
There are just a few rules: no smartphones and no more than six to a team. “No using smartphones unless you’re checking your Tinder,” Garr said.
I quenched my thirsty quiz cells with Guinness and Harp but there are plenty of other beverages at Dog and Duck to keep your whistle wet. I also dug into a dinner of great pub fare: veggie platter, spring rolls, French fries and wings. Drink specials start at $3.
Nightly sponsor like Jagermeister and A Makebelieve Co. bring in schwag and giveaways. Teams can earn extra credit by trying on a tiny crop top that looked like it was made for a baby. Quiz Night happens every Thursday at 7pm at Dog and Duck, but chances are there might be a similar event near you. Mulligan’s has Quiz Night on Thursdays at 10pm, hosted by Trish the Dish, and Lahaina Sportsbar hosts a Quiz Night on Mondays.
