Trivia night is like going to the gym but for your brain.  But it's free.  And it's actually a lot of fun, and it doesn't feel like work.  Hmmm, why aren't gyms figuring out how to do this for our bodies?

Wednesday's Free Answer is: "Perez Hilton"

There is literally nothing more fun going on on Wednesday night around here, so be at trivia and invite those people you want to be around... See ya out there!

Your life, my life, everyone's life is a series of consecutive seconds.  Every second could be something good or bad, or completely boring.  Our goal is to make more of them fun for you.  There are nearly 8 million seconds in winter, don't spend them all in your house.

We aren't going to try to trick you into clicking or liking trivia night by making some tantalizing or otherwise provocative statement like "this one weird trick" or "20 things... you won't believe #4"  Nay, we are all about solid reason, and a free answer and some good old fashioned trivia is reason enough, we think. Wednesday's Free Answer is: "Live and Let Die" And as always, we guarantee a good time at trivia or your money back ;-)  See you tonight!

Most of us want to make our lives better, but how many are taking that big first step of going out to play trivia with friends?

Wednesday's Free Answer is: "North Korea"

Be strong and communicate clearly to your friends that you need some hot trivia action tonight!

TV Auditions

Calling all really smart trivia players!  I was contacted by a casting company that is looking for contestants for a new trivia TV show being produced by Mark Burnett on ABC.  The show is going to consist of Jeopardy! level questions but players can give as many answers as they want in a short period of time, rather than only one.  You need to be pretty knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects and the audition questions are challenging,  I auditioned... I didn't make the cut.  BUT I know that a lot of you know way more than I do, and it would be amazing if a Syracuse Trivia player was on the show.   The details are in the flyer below...unnamed-1
