Trivia Night

Think you don’t know trivia? Think again! The brainchild of Brittany Whitesel and Bayan Azima, this evening is sure to be engaging from the moment you sit down.

Pub quizzes are team efforts, and starting off with our a professionally-designed visual handout round, you’ll be surprised at what you do know. This isn’t Jeopardy, though; individuals aren’t put on the spot since it’s a collective effort that scores for each team.

Each quiz has multiple formats like music rounds, speed rounds, and, when feasible, video rounds, so everyone can contribute in their own way. There’s something for everyone, and it’s never boring!

An awesome Quizmaster hosts your quiz with years of on-mic experience who will ensure your guests have a great time.
