Warm Up With Trivia Nights in St. Matthews
Do your friends always say that you are filled with useless knowledge? Are you a movie buff, know all your state capitols, or a master of the periodic table? If you answered yes to any of these questions or just enjoy an atmosphere filled with a hearty competitive spirit, then you may be a natural trivia buff. Many Louisville pubs hold weekly trivia nights, where one night a week depending on the location, either a live host or television screen, will announce questions and teams of various sizes are challenged to get the correct answers. These trivia nights are becoming increasingly popular among bar-goers of all various age groups and will be an excellent excuse to get out of the house this cold and lonely winter.
