Trivia Night at the Arena
of that perfect shot, he's as unobtrusive as a glowing, dancing giraffe.
By the time I show up at the Arena's Tuesday night Trivia Quiz, Adrian has been doing his thing for a full forty minutes. Everyone knows who we are and why we're here. I decide to make the best of it.
Adrian fills me in on what he's learned. The team of Aimee Bingham and Aaron Branham make up the questions and facilitate the party. Different tables compete for points. There are lots of regulars, one of them being a local radio personality who sometimes acts as mediator for the sports questions. Let me clue you in on a bit of barroom trivia etiquette. You do not shout out the answers when the question is read. Everyone will look at you, annoyed. Instead, write them down and hand them in at the end of the round. Like a good girl.
Aimee starts a new round of questions: What is the murder capital of the United States? In 1968, what baby doctor was indicted for encouraging draft dodgers? What former ER actor's father is running for Congress from Kentucky? What year was Diet Coke introduced?
