Barroom Trivia Slayer? Get Your Quiz on at The Queens
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.
On top of being THE destination in Barrie for live music, the stalwart pub on Dunlop presents trivia buffs the chance to engage in quiz battle every Wednesday.
Bar trivia began in England in the 1970s. Designed to entice people inside to order drinks on slower nights, the competitions quickly gained popularity, providing both a hike in the coffers for small businesses and a social occasion for bar patrons.
Town Trivia host Darren McDonald has carried on that ale house tradition, and added a thematic element to the contests. Each week a different pop culture segment serves as the basis for the questions.
Fans of film franchises and tv shows can capitalize on their insider intel and work together in teams to secure prizes. While also basking in the warm glow that comes from nailing that brainteaser about Harry Potter’s origin. Or who slept with who in The Office.
Good Eats and Good Times
Trivia nights serve as more than just a night out for Jeopardy aficionados. The Queens offers food and drink specials though out the evening’s festivities. Themed drinks accompany the themed quizzes, so even if you flame out on the queries, you’ll have a wonderfully percolated palate to show for it. Trivia is also an inspired idea for team building, or an outing with the hockey guys.
Or date nights! Nothing says romance like teaming up to trounce competitors in the general knowledge arena.
Tickets are just $5 to throw your proverbial cap into the ring, but it’s best to buy well in advance to ensure your spot. You can get passes through The Queens or through this website.
