Review: Tuesday Night Trivia at Matilda

Review: Tuesday Night Trivia at Matilda
We’re always really excited to hear about new trivia spots, especially ones that aren’t hosted by the big companies — which seem to be taking over more and more trivia nights — so we make it a point to visit the smaller and independently run trivia nights (we support small businesses!). A few weeks ago,... Read more »

Review: Tuesday Night Trivia at the Snuggery

Review: Tuesday Night Trivia at the Snuggery
Last week we proved our love of trivia knows no boundaries when we went all the way out to Edison Park to play at the Snuggery.  (It’s really not that bad.  If you drive it’s not far from 90 and there’s complementary valet parking.  If you want to take the train, the Snuggery is right...

Review: Wednesday Night Trivia at Crossing

Review: Wednesday Night Trivia at Crossing
At a glance, trivia at Crossing Tavern in Lakeview seems like it was tailor-made for us. It is a KANSAS bar. They serve *skillet cookies*. They also serve Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat (my favorite) on tap. On Tap! It starts exactly at 8:00pm on the dot and ends at 9:30pm. Parking is super easy. Everything about... Read more »

Or the $100 we pocketed at the end of the night. ... Read more »

Meet Michael (aka Julian)

We recently posted about our hauntingly fun trip to  St. Andrews Inn’s trivia night.   We were thrilled that Julian, the host from St. Andrews Inn, responded with an email informing us that his name is actually Michael.  Turns out Micheal’s fiancee actually prefers the name Julian, and we think it suits him pretty well, too.  ...

Review: Thursday Night Trivia at St. Andrew's Inn
Do you like trivia? Do you like ghosts? We have the perfect place for you. That’s right, I said GHOSTS.

According to legend, Frank Giff, a previous owner of St. Andrew’s, regularly stayed... Read more »
