Starting tonight at 6:30, 9th & Main will be hosting a weekly trivia night. Sure, the time seems weird, but it is currently the best night available and 9th & Main also has to accommodate its Wednesday karaoke that starts at 8:30 (which I've heard is becoming quite the hit).
Hopefully this new trivia event will not compete with the well-established Tuesday night Trivia that Shantytown has been hosting for the past year or so. However, Shantytown trivia regular, Kate Medill, will be taking the reins at 9th & Main as trivia mistress. Not to worry, though. The current queen of quizzical questions, Donna (can't remember last name) has signed on to the additional trivia night and has promised to be competing in tonight's inaugural event.
I don't know yet if 9th & Main will offer the same $20.00 bar tab to the winners as Shantytown does.
As for an update on the Shantytown trivia, the last tournament ended two weeks ago (go Average Bears, thank you, thank you and Kate and Dave and sometimes John thanks you), beating out the stiff competition of Spork, Danger Meat, Trivia Squid, and a varying cast of come and goers. The next tournament at Shanty will kick off sometime around the first of July. There will be an award ceremony next Tuesday for the previous tournament (potluck dinner) and the non-competative (my ass) fun-for-all trivia will continue throughout this month.
So grab some friends, meet new ones, put your brain cap on, and grab some trivia, whether it be at Shanty on Tuesdays (at 8:00) or 9th & Main on Wednesdays.
