If you are one of those acerbic conversationalists who can start a discussion on anything by calling on troves of weird info lodged somewhere in your hippocampus, eternal (or at least weekly) bragging rights awaits you at the Queens.
Beginning at 7pm and hosted by Darren McDonald, Trivia nights serve as more than just a night out for Jeopardy aficionados. You can also gorge on food and drink specials though out the evening’s festivities. So even if you flame out on the queries, you’ll have a wonderfully percolated palate to show for it.
With the NHL and the NBA playoffs in full swing, and the Blue Jays going yard most nights, there will be loads of sports dates to circle on your Google calendars this month. Park yourself in close proximity to the big screens on the sports side and see every minute.
The cure for big night out…is a big breakfast. And starting this month you can clear out the weekend cobwebs every Saturday and Sunday morning with a full slate of traditonal morning-after fare.
Beginning at 9, and served right through the day, you can scare away the hangover with full plates of eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns and pancakes.
