Longtime Beijingers are well aware that the independent bookstore (slash-cafe-slash-bar-slash-event-space) The Bookworm — a local institution if ever there was one — was the first place in town to host weekly pub quizzes. Well, we’re bringing it back. Next Monday, July 24 at 8 pm, there will be a special (loosely) China-themed pub quiz at The Bookworm, hosted by yours truly.

Sample questions you may or may not see during quiz night:

– What city was the first to receive the designation “Special Economic Zone” in China?

– Which of the following is the only Chinese person to have been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year more than once? A) Chiang Kai-shek; B) Mao Zedong; C) Deng Xiaoping; D) Xi Jinping

– Identify the company, founded in 1988 with hubs in Beijing and Chengdu, that uses this logo:

You got these? Good. Bring a team and compete next Monday. Limit up to 6 people per team, please. Top three teams will win prizes, and we’ll pass out some shots along the way if we’re feeling good.
