Quiz night at Sol e Luna might be the highest concentration of white people in one room in Africa. It can be a lot of fun if you’re with a good group of friends and the quiz is well done, or terribly boring if your team is crap and the quiz is dull.
But it’s something to do on a Monday night in Kigali and it can be a great way of getting up to speed on new Kigali arrivals and catching up with old friends you haven’t seen for awhile. If you’ve spent any time at all in Kigali and hang out with expats then you’re likely to know a bunch of quiz participants.
If you don’t know anyone and aren’t shy then you might be able to force yourself onto a team of strangers in an effort to make some new friends.
The winners get their bill paid (including food and drinks) but have to make the quiz the following week. Second place seems to be the place to finish as you get your drinks paid for and don’t have to worry about making next week’s quiz. There’s also usually a small prize for the best team name.
It’s free to play but get there early as tables fill fast.
