Looking for something to do this weekend. "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Tuesdays mark Irish Pub Quiz at Skeptical Chymist.
The Place: 15688 N. Pima Rd., Scottsdale, AZ, 85260
The Time: Every Tuesday, 8 to 10 p.m.
The Cover: Nope.
The Parking: Lot.
The People: Groups of college-aged kids and older regulars sip their rich Irish and German ales and get quizzical in perfect harmony.
The Style: Anything and everything, just as long as it's casual.
What we loved: The difficulty of the quiz questions left most people scratching their heads, but when a team manages to pull together and get a correct answer, a celebration can be heard across the bar.
What we didn't love: The Irish host of the Irish Pub Quiz had a very thick Irish accent that wasn't ideal for announcing questions. It resulted in many requests for repeats and more than one spelling out of a key quiz word.
Are we going back? We're a little skeptical about it, but yes.
