Havock Road, V-Factor, 6 Nations and Comedy … another busy weekend in Renfrewshire Pubs

Each week seems to get busier and busier. With more contributions and information being sent our way from Pubs, bars and Inns, we can begin to send out more details updates on what’s available for everyone this weekend, if you fancy something a little different.

And this weekend definitely has variety!

Friday 11th February 2011:
It’s round 2 of the Viscount (Renfrew) V-Factor competition. Yes, think X-factor, but it’s in the Viscount Bar. Running every Friday through February and March and a final at the end of March, with big money prizes, there is no entry fee. Starts at 8:30pm, so get along for a sing song. Follow the Viscount on Facebook to keep up to date.

It’s also Pub Quiz night over at The Houston Inn, Houston. A relaxed evening with some brain teasers.

Saturday 12th February 2011:
Scotland host Wales in the RBS 6 Nations 2011. Let’s hope Scotland can build on last weeks performance. If you want to watch it, head over to the Howwood Inn or The Wee Howff, who’ve both confirmed they are showing 6 Nations games on TV. If you know other pubs showing the games, let us know.

Your live music this Saturday can be found at The Brown Bull, Lochwinnoch. Havock Road have been invited in to play and the evening kicks off at 9:30pm. Get along and support them!

If Poker is more you’re thing, then the regular MTT Poker League is on at the Station Bar (Paisley) at 2:30pm.

Sunday 13th February 2011:
The highlight of Sunday, apart from you all being out buying gifts for your Valentine (obviously!), has to be the Comedy Night over at Brodies Farmhouse, Houston. 4 great comedy acts compered by Raymond Mearns. Starts at 8:30pm and tickets are £5.

Alternatively, the weekly pub quiz is on at 9pm over at Harrys Bar, Renfrew or you can join in with more Poker at the Wallace Tavern (Elderslie), Hazel Arms (Johnstone) or Bankhouse (Paisley).

As always, please contact each Pub, Bar and Inn prior to attending just to make sure each event is definitely on. We try our best to be accurate but some times / dates may change from time to time.
