Wednesday Night Trivia at Kilo Bravo, October 12

Update: Kilo Bravo is celebrating its two-year anniversary on Wednesday so we’ll be postponing trivia to next week, October 12.

I’ll be back to hosting Wednesday Night Trivia at Kilo Bravo on Wednesday, October 12, beginning at 8:30 PM. It’s been a lot of fun, and if you’re around, please do stop by and play along.

Whet your appetite for our quiz questions—and the bar’s half-price chicken wings—with questions from this past week’s Current Events round. The answers are after the jump.
