Jack & Ginger's: Risky Quizness
One week later and one more bar visited. My second foray into the world of pub trivia was more enjoyable and successful. Jack & Ginger's is the baseline for trivia, like that essay your teacher shows you all that's a "good example" -- it's good but not great and maybe lacks some imagination or hutzpah. They have trivia night deals, shots for round winners and prizes for best team names. Our team name, Risky Quizness, did not woo the judges. My team this week included: Katharine, Major Major Major Major, Eli, Coral and Drew. The scoop:
Location: Jack & Ginger's on W. Armitage When: Wednesdays, 8pm Length of game: 1.5 -2 hours The scoop? snarky emcee, wide variety of questions, good trivia deals, great food Tips: get the burger and get there by 7:30 if you want a seat for trivia. How many pints?*
* I know I said that any bar which offered drink/food deals would get a half pint jump. AND Jack & Ginger's offers great deals on their trivia night - $4 burgers or salads (real burgers, not some slider-bullshit) and $3 "J" shots (Jameson, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Jägermeister & Jose Cuervo). BUT they used a free Pandora station which subjected us all to listening to ads at full-volume every 30 minutes and one of my friend's medium burger arrived pretty much raw/cold in the middle, so I'm only gonna round you up to a 3.5...
