One of the nice things about going to a monthly trivia contest where you rack up tickets to see Adele in concert is that the next time the event rolls around, you don’t care so much about winning. …oh, who am I kidding; I would have loved to see Grizzly Bear for free. 😛 But it just wasn’t meant to be!
On Thursday evening, I joined well over a hundred of my peers at Sixth & I for the fourth installment (facebook link) of this summer series… quite the suave way to keep our brains functioning in all of this humidity! This event was co-sponsored with B’nai B’rith Young Leadership.
The questions were varied, ranging from geography to pop culture to Olympic history, given current events. Though my team, “The Kosher Cookies,” didn’t beat out the other dozen or so in play, we boosted ourselves up by doing successively better with each coming round. There’s all sorts of ways to come out as a winner!
And as brain food, we dined on pizza, falafel, cookies, and beer, as this was an over-21 event. I’m glad I didn’t stop for dinner after work!
All in all, it was an enjoyable evening. Nothing like relaxing with a bunch of peers, and burshing up on the ol’ factoids.
The next young professionals trivia night will be taking place on Wednesday, September 3. For more information, or to R.S.V.P., contact Aaron Weintraub at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
