Above / Back in 2017, Patti Powers, Kevin McQuillan and Chuck Corrigan, members of the West Suburban Irish who regularly attend WSI Quiz Night at Quigley’s Irish Pub on the first Tuesday of most months, took a few minutes to help PN promote its January issue. With fond memories of more than 10 years of Quiz Nights, the 2019 kick off begins at 7PM Jan. 8.  And the 2019 January issue of Positively Naperville will be hot off the press.

Cheers to another year of good things happening through teamwork!

If you enjoy team trivia and a chance to test all the wits about you, the West Suburban Irish Quiz Night at Quigley’s Irish Pub are held on the first Tuesday of most months. The 2019 games begin at 7PM Tues., Jan. 8, and will continue every month with the exception of July and September when Independence Day and Labor Day get in the way.

Focused on “friends, fun and service” the nonprofit group also hosts lively Music Sessions on the third Wednesday of each month at Quigley’s Irish Pub. Join great listeners to enjoy live traditional Irish music. Musicians and the public are welcome to attend this month from 7-9PM on Wed., Jan. 16.

Aiming to bring “good food, good friends, and good music” together, ’tis also the season when members of the West Suburban Irish are focused on their Emerald Dinner beginning at 6PM on Sat., Feb. 23, held again at White Eagle Club.
