Thu November 17 at 8:30 PM, Fizz Chicago
3220 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Confirming Fizz Trivia for November 17th, two weeks and one day after the monthly Goat. More info below.

[original discussion post]
We can probably talk more about this tomorrow during the goat, but at last week's trivia mini-meetup we thought making the trivia meetup a regular thing would have been cool (preferably with fewer massive World Series losses). The possibility of a regular Pequods meetup (previously) was also broached.

Presumably either/or would take place midmonth for people who can't get to the monthly Goat due to schedule or downtown-ness issues:

- Fizz' trivia night takes place every Thursday at 8:30, 3220 N. Lincoln, and last week's lasted about two hours. Teams have a max size of six, but we squeezed through with seven last time, so trivia night would probably have to be a smaller affair than the larger general meetups.

- Pequods (2200 N. Clybourn) has a party special of unlimited pizza and tap beer for $30, or pizza and not-beer for $15, as long as we get ten or more people.

What say you?

Or we can split up into teams and compete!

I'm all about a regular trivia thing.

How did that big group along the wall handle it? Just scooch apart a bit during rounds? I wasn't really paying attention.

I would definitely be up for a monthly trivia meet-up, but this month and next month probably aren't going to be great for me. Don't misinterpret the holiday-nuts-schedule for a lack of interest though!

I love trivia. And yeah, we can split up into two teams.

Three votes for trivia, so I'm preliminarily confirming it.

Next time I'll be sure to remember the weight of the International Space Station in pounds.

Zaximus - what happened with the lack of you at the Goatup?

I had every intention of getting there on time, but it had been a rough day at the office and someone proposed getting a beer at happy hour. I figured one beer wouldn't hurt. Then half the office showed up and well, long story short, that turned into a lot of beers.

But! I made it to the karaoke portion of the evening. Points for partial credit.

And since tzikeh made it to the Goat portion of the evening, there's full credit to be had between the two of you.

Sigh. I'm going to miss trivia again. I am volunteering with the protest march tomorrow and then unexpectedly attending a farewell party.

I'm bringing a friend! She only knows metafilter through my incessant "so, this thing I read on metafilter..."-ing. But she really likes bar trivia. Woo!

Yay friends! Yay trivia! I'm so excited to hang out tomorrow!

Have fun, guys! Do us, at least try not to lose as badly as we did last time.

I got distracted by the Slender Man and just got on the brown line a few minutes ago - should be there in about 30 or so.

I was totally planning on coming to this, but we'll be out of town this weekend and there is just too much stuff left to do before we go. Good luck!
