March 12 works for me, but if people prefer a different night, Summit hosts trivia on last Fridays and second Saturdays.

Both Saturday the 12th and Friday the 25th work for me.

The 12th works for me! As the Keeper Of The Beer Tokens, I should probably attend.

Looking forward to it! :)

Perfect! I'll throw the 12th up and we'll shoot for that.

As a nerd, I must insist that you balance your parentheses in the event description.

I'm gonna need some guidance on that...

You've got three open and two close parentheses, that's all. It's silly to make a fuss about it. I feel silly.

Not at all. I appreciate you pointing that out!

Unrelated to trivia but I think some folks in the group would be excited about it:

Making a Murderer's Dean Strang & Jerry Buting: A Conversation on Justice
Thu, Jun 2, 7:30 pm
Northrop Auditorium, U of M
Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, defense attorneys for Steven Avery in the Netflix documentary series Making A Murderer, will talk about the Steven Avery case and its broader implications, as well as discuss the larger topic of the American criminal justice system. The evening will also feature a Q&A portion and the opportunity for the audience to address questions directly to the two attorneys.


View the "A Conversation on Justice" Tour trailer here.

Wow who in our group would be interested in a thing like that I wonder

I'll admit it, the idea of spending my birthday evening with Sexy Dean Strang is highly tempting.

I'll see your Sexy Dean Strang and raise you Normcore Dean Strang. I think that may (?) cover most of our Dean Strang needs until June rolls around.

(meanwhile Sexy Jerry Buting only has about 1/3 as many followers as Dean. Sorry, Jerry.)

Last time we did trivia at this venue, all the of sit-down tables were full well before the scheduled start time -- and that was on one of the few very cold days we had this winter. So people might want to try arriving a little early, or else plan to stand for the whole thing.

(Personally I don't have a problem with standing.)

I am planning on getting there early to try to get a table. I have no idea what would be a good time. Maybe 5:30? If anyone else wants to arrive early to keep me company and help me guard our table, feel free! I'll give you my beer token!
posted by triggerfinger at 3:30 PM on March 10, 2016

I can be there at 5:30 as well! Getting pre-beered up before trivia is a winning strategy, right?

I've re-acquired my vintage 1989 copy of Trump the Game. Should I bring it for post-trivia laughs or do we not want to be seen with it in public?

My first meetup! Looking forward to meeting everyone at trivia!

Hey - I won't be there. Sorry I haven't been attending things lately -- I've been slowly recovering from an injury and haven't been up for much.
posted by heurtebise at 1:28 PM on March 12, 2016

I'll be there! I'll try to get there early too.
