Drop in to the Daniel O'Connell pub in North Adelaide on a Thursday evening for The Dan's Trivia Night the perfect pre-weekend festivities starter.

Each Thursday from around 7pm, The Dan's tables and bar stools are filled with eager quizzing competitors. It's free to participate and the quiz round categories vary each week so it's always fresh and interesting.

Sometimes there is a picture puzzle round, or a CD round and there's always the chance to win a jug of beer or bottle of wine (they give out about 3 of these each week). There's even a cryptic 'baffler' question which always confuses, amuses and strains the brain.

The quiz master is friendly, and may even throw an extra hint or two your way if you're nice. The bar and kitchen staff are relaxed and fun, and a well-priced, hearty bar menu makes The Dan a perfect place for an after-work meal and some entertainment with friends.

Meal recommendations (for Winter, particularly) include: Bangers and Mash and Creamy Roast Pumpkin Soup. Tables book out very quickly so it's a good idea to reserve one in advance. If you feel a bit more up-market, you can eat in Peppertree Restaurant first before moving to the bar for the quiz (make sure to try the Traditional Irish Lamb Stew).

The Daniel O'Connell is solid, traditional Irish pub. The staff here know that for a pub to do well it has to have good food, a good bar and good entertainment. And at The Dan, all three will keep you coming back each week.
