I participate in the Geeks Who Drink trivia night at Community Beer Co. with the same group of friends almost every Wednesday. I drink one or two Mosaic IPAs, bring my dinner (usually pizza or tacos), obnoxiously pet everyone’s dogs, and attempt to answer obscure questions like, “Chuck D of Public Enemy ‘got a letter from the government the other day. He opened and read it, it said they were’ WHAT?”
My friends and I usually end up somewhere in the middle of the 20-or-so-group pack by the end of eight rounds of questions. We’re never the worst team in the brewery, but never the best. That is, until two days ago. Somehow, we managed to win first place on a jam-packed night. I’m not sure if everyone who showed up for trivia on Wednesday was just dumber than usual, or if we were getting smarter. Probably the former. But that didn’t take away from our victory—and the free beer we can look forward to the next time.
If trivia is your thing, or if you just like hanging out with friends and drinking, there are lots of places around town that host trivia nights on different days of the week. Who knows—you might just win some free beer.
