The topic of this week’s theme round can be found here starting on the Sunday before trivia.
What: Trivia! We have 4 rounds of five questions each, plus a halftime round and, if necessary, a tiebreaker. The questions come from a wide array of topics, but every week the 2nd round is a theme round. The theme is announced at the previous week’s trivia night, and is posted here the day before (or thereabouts.)
When: Every Monday night at 8:30. We’re almost always done between 9:30 & 10, depending on the crowd.
Where: You now have 2 options: Mattie B’s Public House found at 1125 North Carolina 54 #301 in Hope Valley Commons, Durham or Black Twig Cider House at 2812 Erwin Road in Durham.
Why: It’s fun! If that’s not enough, the winning team gets $40 off their bar tab. The best team name wins (usually) a pitcher of beer. The best wrong answer of the night wins some random crap like a pint glass or a shirt or something. We usually have some gift certificates to throw in as well. *UPDATE FOR 2016:* On nights where we have 12 or more teams we are also giving $20 off the bar tab of the 2nd place team.
Who: At Mattie B’s your host is a guy name John, who also writes the questions. He guarantees that all answers are as correct as a few minutes of Googling from his couch can confirm. At Black Twig your host is a guy names Sam. He makes no guarantees, and will probably suggest that you address any trivial complaints to John.
