{February 20, 2012}   The Pursuit of Trivia

Is your brain bursting with tidbits of useless information? Do you know the names of Santa’s reindeer, Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and J.Lo’s shoe size? Then you are the kind of brainiac that Trivia Night was created for! And Downtown Greenville offers a plethera of opportunities for you to show off what a smartie-pants you are!

Music lovers can finish up the weekend and kickstart a new week at Liberty Tap Room. Every Sunday, this local beer lovers retreat hosts Music Trivia at 9PM. Impress your friends with your vast knowledge of one-hit wonders and musicians’ real names. While you’re there, take time to sample one of their delectable burgers – you’ll be glad you did

Got a case of the Monday Blues? Nothing  can shake things up like a few rounds of Trivia! Traditionalists will enjoy getting back to basics with the board game, Trivial Pursuit. Join other TP enthusiasts at O-CHA Tea Bar Mondays at 6PM to enjoy a bubbly tea and earn wedges using  your keen intellect. Missed the Sunday Music Trivia at Liberty? No worries – you can still catch Name That Tune Trivia at City Tavern– and grab a delicious frozen daiquiri while you’re there. Carnivores and team players alike should round up a group of like-minded  pals and head to Wild Wing Cafe for a Sampler Platter of wings and some Trivia with Blake.

Tuesday plays host to the grand-daddy of all trivia. Join Marty at Connolly’s Irish Pub for DTGVL’s  favorite Contest of Wits. Kick back with your buds and answer an array of brain teasers while enjoying a pint of Guinness – which is Irish for Genius! Well, not really, but some believe that Guinness makes you smarter, and who are we to argue? Get there well before 9PM, ‘coz space fills up fast.

Not to be left out, Wednesday offers many choices for Trivia fans to show off their smarts. All-ages are welcome to Trivia Night at The Mellow Mushroom – which takes place at 7:30PM. Over 21’s can get their drinks and  Trivia on the rocks at On the Roxx. This sophisticated hangout is popular and space is limited, so it is well-advised that you arrive well before the 9PM start time. Want a little gumbo with your Trivia? Then head over to Ford’s Oyster House & Cajun Kitchen for some Team Trivia and bayou cookin’!

As of yet, no one has Trivia scheduled for Thursday, Friday or Saturday, but don’t let that stop you! Many bars have trivia online and occasionally host tournaments. Check out Sharkey’s Pub and Sky Sports Bar to match wits with folks from all over the US via the Internet. For an added challenge, swap smarts with the staff…you’ll be impressed with their diversity of knowledge.

Downtown Greenville offers fun and frivolity for thinkers and drinkers alike! So, call your brilliant BFF’s and meet them at any of these fine establishments to exercise your brain cells (before you drown them in drink). And, Downtownies…if you do more drinking than thinking, please take a cab home. Here’s to having a  “smart” time in the DTGVL!
