Trivia: Revenge of the Return of the Son of Trivia

Thu July 11 at 6:30 PM, Maple Leaf Pub
514 Elgin Street, Houston, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
We looked up from the debris to find, happily, that icepuck season is over! So to celebrate this and any number of other events, let's play Geeks who Drink trivia at the Maple Leaf Pub! Trivia starts at 8, but ever since it was named the best trivia night in Houston, the MLP has been full earlier and earlier. I'm going to suggest arriving around 6:30 if we want any hope of securing a table. Yummy steak is served starting at 7. Plus we have a gift certificate to spend before it expires! And English Matt is back from Calgary! Exclamation mark!

I would love to be there but -

a) I'll be spending the day watching the Tour de France;
b) real, live and in-person; and
c) consequently you'd have to Skype me in; and
d) anyway, it will be 2am my time and I will be pretty much useless by then.

Trivia does not involve the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Unless you count steak. Hope you're having fun, jph.

I am ridiculously terrible at trivia, so perhaps will skip this one. I will plan to come to the next Houston meetup, though, because I'm excited to meet Mefites in my new town.

Oh, librarylis, you should definitely come to trivia! We have a lot of fun even when we don't win... or place... or even show... or get a participation ribbon... :)

Ahh, you guys are persuasive! I will give it a shot--though getting to Midtown might take me a bit. I'll even dig out my MetaFilter t-shirt. So if you see a lost brunette wearing a grey MF t-shirt in about 30 minutes, that's probably me.
