Wednesday Night Trivia at Kilo Bravo, September 7

Update: I won’t be able to host trivia tonight because I came down with a bad cold. I’ll be there next week, though.

Tomorrow night, I’ll be hosting Wednesday Night Trivia at Kilo Bravo, located at 180 N. 10th St in Williamsburg, on Wednesday nights starting at 8:30 PM.

My friend Mike Q works the bar during the night and contributes a bunch of questions, usually with decadal themes such as 1990s fashion, 1990s music, 1980s movies, and 1970s sports.

My own contributions include current events of the past week and a picture round to identify something I put on the TV screens at the bar. You can see last week’s questions, below!

Come out with a team, join one, or play solo. It is half-price chicken wings until 10:00, and there are prizes:

  • $25 bar tab for the first-place team
  • $15 bar tab for the second-place team
  • a round of shots for the third-place team

The fun starts at 8:30. Hope to see you there!
