They had two handpumps on, and both the beers were quite nice, although almost indistinguishable from each other.
So, in summary: losing Quiz bad, food awesome, beer passable.
The most interesting part of the evening was meeting some of the Elland branch folks. One or two of them were giving me a very "sizing up" look. The head honcho in Elland is called Trevor, so now I have the magical Trevor song in my head again. I'll be going along to the next Elland branch meeting, anyway, to foster inter-branch relations and such.

- The Geeka Chicas poll is on Trek captains this month. Look to the right sidebar of the linked page and VOTE JANEWAY!
- Stephen Tall wants me to do a meme. He wants me to name seven reasons why I joined the Lib Dems. There's only one, really. I was drunk, and Mat signed me up, after months of trying to persuade me. I'm bloody glad he did, though. Before I joined, I felt the way a lot of people feel - there's nothing I can do to change things, they're all the same, we'd have been better off if Guy Fawkes hadn't been so cack-handed, etc. etc. et bloody cetera. Now I know I can make a difference, because I have done. I've helped to formulate policy. I've met and spoken to and argued with national political figures. I've helped a winning presidential campaign, and I've become a press and communications officer. None of it has made me any money - the gravy train doesn't seem to stop at Lib Dem stations - but that doesn't matter, because this isn't about me. Well, it is, but it's about you as well. It's about making life that bit less grindingly sucky for ALL of us. And I have a fire in my belly that I can do something about that. So yeah, there was only one reason why I joined. But there's a multitude why I RENEWED.
And now, it's definitely time for bed. I need to digest all this rhubarb. TTYL, lovely bloggy people.
