Publique is bringing yet another exciting batch of pop-culture quizzes to the UAE, with Money Heist and Lord of the Rings-themed nights now in the calendar.

If you know your Aragorn from your elves, and Endore from your shire, then the Middle-earth Quiz is for you. Brush up on your elvish and J R R Tolkein references, and prepare to be quizzed on all things Lord of the Rings at the alpine-style bar.

The Frodo and co-themed quizzes will take place from 8pm until 10pm on Wednesday, September 4 and Wednesday, September 11. As always, there will be prizes for best dressed, as well as Q&A winners, so why not go all out with cloaks, toe hair and gold ring accessories?

If LOTR is not your bag, you may instead be interested in the Money Heist quizzes on Wednesday, September 18 and Wednesday, September 25.

Only 23 episodes of the high-octane show have aired to date, and they are all available to stream on Netflix. So, even if you haven't watched the Spanish television phenomenon just yet, a dedicated weekend of bingeing could rectify that and have you quiz ready in time.

The ski chalet-themed bar has already hosted popular weekly Friends quizzes throughout July, and Marvel and Breaking Bad nights in August.

It's not just about the pop-culture pondering, however. Publique offers a nightly three-hour brunch package with an alpine menu and selected beverages for Dh275 over the summer (usual price is Dh345), or a cheese deal, which includes a selection of beverages with set cheese dishes (including raclette, fondue or tartiflette) from Dh220 per couple.

Quizzes at Publique, Madinat Jumeirah, from 8pm-10pm, Wednesdays throughout September; the Middle-earth Quiz will take place on September 4 and 11; the 'Money Heist' quiz will take place on September 18 and 25; email info@publique.ae; 04 430 8550, www.publique.ae
