Break Up the 5-Day Grind with Local Trivia Nights

Add a Little Fun to Your Weekday Slump


Books, movies, local history facts, all of these have one thing in common – they make for great trivia questions.

While weekends in NEPA are great for hitting the hiking trails or checking out a local museum, they are far too short. And, who said we had to spend our weekdays pining away for Friday night? Make the work week fun again with weekly trivia nights! Trivia is a chance to test your memory and add a little friendly competition to your typical night out. It’s also your chance to finally dazzle your friends and coworkers with your remarkable knowledge of sitcom theme songs.

Be it standing up in a roomful of strangers and saying “I’ve got this” or showing up your sweetheart in a grudge match of random facts, trivia makes weeknights fun. Trivia night also reminds us that whether we know a little bit about everything, or everything about one little thing, it takes a team to complete the dream.

Call your friends and get together for some brain bending fun. Test your trivia skills at some of these favorite NEPA trivia nights.
