Love Perth Life took part in a 90s pop culture quiz night at The Balmoral hotel last night for a good dose of nostalgia from (what I think) is the best decade. Taking a trip down memory lane, there were 5 quiz rounds covering the topics of 1990s music, movies, pop culture, celebrities and TV to get our brains ticking.
There were plenty of drinks going round and some 90s themed food specials, like ‘Silence of the Lamb cutlets’. There was also a raffle prize with all money donated going towards the ‘Parma for a Farmer’ campaign to help Australian farmers struggling with drought.
First place in the quiz went to the team ‘Double Denim’ who scored themselves a 90s console pack which included a Classic Nintendo Mini, Super Nintendo Mini, Sega and Atari. I think that’s their weekend plans sorted! Teams were also encouraged to dress up in their favourite 90s threads with a $200 voucher for The Balmoral bar and menu up for grabs. My team dressed as Chucky and Lil from the classic TV show The Rugrats and took out first place… that’s going to get us a lot of parmas! We had a few costumes that fit the theme like Bananas in Pyjamas and Mr and Mrs Potato Head so it was tough to pick one, but dressing up made the night just that bit more fun.
Thank you to The Balmoral for hosting this free event. A big shout out also goes to the lovely host dressed as a quintessential 90s kid, who brought a lot of enthusiasm to the night.
