When digging at Vindolanda my long time home has been the Twice Brewed Inn. Convenient, friendly, and a quirky sort of place where you were made to feel welcome even if you dragged in with some digging dirt on you.
It was sold and renovated in the off season, so I am having to cope with change. Much of it good by the way.
But the famous "Twicey Quiz" is no more.
This shook me to the core. The Twice Brewed Quiz was a revered institution, one that had been officially proclaimed the Worst in Britain. It was also great fun.
No Twicey Quiz? Why it would be like the ravens leaving the Tower, a harbinger most certain of impending calamity.
But we adapt. Another local pub had a quiz last night and we had a good contingent in attendence.
