Think While You Drink

 You read that one useless fact on the internet some time ago and have been DYING for an opportunity to use it; everybody needs to know that a town in Alaska has had the same mayor for over 15 years named Stubbs, who also happens to be a cat. Well, now you can flex your mental prowess and become (pop) cultured at the best trivia nights in America’s Finest City.  Grab a group of friends and start the week off with a win at Tavern. With trivia every Monday night from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m., you’ll have ample time to show off your genius. Old Forester Bourbon, whiskey aged bitters, a sugar cube and some citrusy zest, the Tavern Old Fashioned is the perfect way to celebrate your victory. Who else but you would have known that Scotland’s national animal is the unicorn? If you find yourself downtown, head over to True North Tavern on Monday’s at 8:00 p.m. Hosted by some of America’s finest trivia gurus, $4 Jameson’s and Fat Tires, the room may or may not be spinning by the time you walk onstage to claim your prize. Grab a meal at Kearny Mesa’s Common Theory Public House before you take down the opposition Tuesday’s at 8:00 p.m. Deep fried until golden brown, loaded with duck confit and sprinkled with garlic, their Truffle Duck Fat Fries pairs well with any of their more than 30+ beers on tap. With a full belly and buzz, you might have to thank Einstein for his theory of “relax-ivity”. With two locations, you can win on Tuesday then again on Thursday at Woodstock’s Pizza in Pacific Beach and San Diego, respectively. Specials on pitchers, you may or may not forget what state doesn’t share any letters with the word “mackerel” (Ohio, obviously). If you want a place that has more beers on tap than you do trivia answers, Barrel Republic is the place for you. Located in Pacific Beach and Oceanside, head over at 7:00 p.m. and sip on any of their 40+ beers on tap while you try to figure out if zebras are black with white stripes (they are) or if the color “orange” came before the fruit (it didn’t). Calling all brainiacs! Head to East Village every Wednesday at 8 p.m. and show off your knowledge at Halcyon. Their “Geeks Who Drink” trivia night features cold booze, stump-worthy questions, bar-cash prizes and a whole lot of fun! Add to the excitement with their must-try Table-side S’mores.  Whoever said that you only use 10% of your brain is absolutely wrong; you need all 100% in order to store your vast knowledge of bar trivia. Armed with these relatively useless facts, you and your friends are now ready to relax your mental muscles and sweep the floor with the competition. Jeopardy! here we come!
