Food & Drink Quiz

It's a wonder we've never done this quiz before, given how proficient we at SEQC are at its three propositions (sometimes I think, more so than quizzing). Never too late to fill a void, though. So here it is, SEQC's first food and drink quiz, 'Eat, Drink and Be Merry' (notice I have left out the commonly-attached clause, "for tomorrow ye/we die").

Date: Sunday October 11, 2015
Time: 5pm
Venue: International Centre Goa (ICG), Dona Paula
Flavour: As the graphic says -- food, drink and associated activities
Participation: Open to all, entry free. All who land up will be divided into teams. There may be some surprizes.
