Get Smart: Every Night is Trivia Night in St. John’s

Hungry for something to do on a weeknight?

MONDAY

Breezeway (University Centre, MUN Campus)
Time: Mondays at 8:00 p.m.

It’s free, and it’s all semester long. Official sponsor Quidi Vidi is bringing drink specials, and it’s open to the public, not just students. School those undergrads!

 Wing ‘N It (7 Bates Hill)
Time: Mondays at 8:00 p.m.

Most trivia nights will have you fighting for a table before the battle of wits can begin. Not so at this downtown wing joint. Call 237-WING to reserve a table.

TUESDAY 

YellowBelly Brewery (288 Water Street)
Time: Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. (doors open at 8)

Join your hosts Michael Pickard and Christopher Pickard upstairs in the Public House for trivia. The hosts sweeten the pot with prizes, a 50/50 draw, and half the proceeds going to charity. Big crowds, great hosts. A major event.

WEDNESDAY

The Sundance (George Street)
Time: Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m.

Rejoice, trivia fiends. Wednesday night is no longer a trivia deadzone. The Sundance has started a weekly six-round trivia night, with categories, also ranging from medium to hard difficulty.

THURSDAY

Bitters Pub (Feild Hall, MUN campus)
Time: Thursdays at 8:00 p.m.

Bitters keeps things fresh by featuring a revolving door of volunteers that write and host (all according to house hosting rules). Gift cards for the bar are doled out throughout the night to keep things lubricated.

Team sizes max out at 8, so you can bring your pre-med pal, your English Honours friend, and your Varsity roommate. Seating always fills up fast so its recommended you arrive at least an hour early if you want to find a seat for the 2.5 hour trivia thunderdome. While you’re there, partake in Bitters always-decent beers-on-on-tap for celebrating academic victory (or soothing your bruised ego).

The Station Lounge (7 Hutchings Street)
Time: Thursdays at 8:00 p.m.

The princes of pub trivia in the city. “We usually start around 8:15 as we are very casual and give time for everyone to arrive and get settled,” says host Geoff Inder. Trivia is a blend of pop culture and academia with six categories covering movies, geography, science, television, and other topics.

“We always have at least a couple categories on screen and a music/audio round,” he says. “There are a few prizes but competition isn’t the be-all-and-end-all. It’s about having a good time for a couple hours among friends and frenemies!”
