On the evening of Wednesday 27 March special guest Howard Marks (AKA Mr. Nice) hosts Disco Bistro EC4‘s very first quiz night. Marks has been described by The Guardian as “notoriously well-versed in sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll”, so what better theme for a night of great food, good company and plenty of laughter?
‘Mr. Nice’ – a nickname adopted from one of his many aliases in the 80s, Donald Nice – has had a varied career, forging a path from drug baron to best-selling author to DJ and crime novelist, generating a wealth of stories along the way. Used to recounting these tales to packed-out theatres, Marks’ quiz night offers a unique opportunity for music buffs and ‘high-minded’ hedonists to enjoy quality time with one of Britain’s most engaging humorists.
With room for just 12 teams of four, guests are advised to pick their teammates wisely. The winning team will be awarded £100, while the top runner-up will receive a signed copy of one of Marks’ books. Tickets are £140 per team (£35 per head), which includes a special four course menu influenced by Carl and Howard’s shared interests. An honest twist on the Italian American inspired rose veal parm sandwich (a favourite of The Sopranos) and an ‘edible spliff’ are sure to be talking points for all the right reasons.
Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday March 8, and must be reserved in advance by calling the restaurant on 07850 630 129 and leaving a deposit. Please note that due to the high demand for this event teams comprising of fewer than four members commit to paying the full £140 entry fee.
