Monday’s might drag on, but you can always go to trivia for a good time! The Wexford Ale House has trivia every week at 6:30pm! If you don’t win, don’t worry, because there’s always tomorrow night!. 

Trivia heats up every Tuesday, with a variety of locations! Check out Shenanigan’s Bar and Grille in the North Hills. The game begins at 8pm! If you’re near Oakland, head on over to Hemingway’s Cafe, 6:30pm start time! If Lawrenceville is more your thing, then you’ll have a couple of options. There’s Franktuary, which kicks off at 8pm. And Spirit has trivia every 2nd and 4th Tuesday, which starts at 7pm. Swissvale fans, trivia at Pub in the Park begins at 7:30pm! Got it? Good! Did that same team win again? You swear you saw them use their phones, but it’s fine because trivia week rolls on!

Happy hump day! Wednesday’s trivia locations features two locations in Lawrenceville: Hambones at 9pm and Brillobox at 8:30pm. And for the Southside—Mario’s, 8pm. Be there! So the same team won again, didn’t they?! How are they going to all these places at once?! And why is there always a random science or geography question?! Where are the pop culture questions?! Time to recruit more team members!

Thirsty Thursday, and yes, trivia night! If you’re in the Strip, check out Beerhive at 7pm. You could also enjoy the awesome view on Mount Washington and play at Bigham Tavern– 8pm start! Another option? How about the Hophouse in Green Tree, with trivia at 8pm.
