Trivia at Michael Diversey's

This Sunday marks the 80th anniversary of the 21st Amendment going in to effect. That's the one that ended Prohibition. You should come out and have a drink in honor of this momentous occasion. And while you're at it you might as well try your hand at some trivia.

For those new to the group, we usually form up two or three teams (8 person max per team), so we'll have a sign on the table(s) indicating that it's us. We're usually at the back of the bar. Trivia starts promptly at 8 o'clock so we try to get there a little early to get settled in. Trivia is usually over by 10:30.

Trivia is free; however, the bar does ask that you spend at least $5 on food and/or drink otherwise they reserve the right to charge you $5. But lets not have that happen. They've got good drink specials and really good food. You should eat something. Your mother worries about you.

Trivia at Michael Diversey's consists of 5 regular rounds with 10-12 questions each and a speed round to finish things up.

Round 1 is a picture round.

Round 2 is a general trivia round but all 10 of the answers are themed. So maybe you have the answers "Ford Bronco" and "Lincoln Logs." At that point, the theme might be car brands or U.S. Presidents. Figuring out the theme gets you 2 points and can assist you in figuring out some of the other questions.

Round 3 is typically a music round. You get ½ a point for the artist and ½ a point for the song title.

Round 4 can be anything.

Round 5 is now a round of random trivia with a two-part question at the end where you can wager up to 10 points. If you're not sure I would suggest not wagering the full 10. That can be bad. It has been bad.

You are also allowed to double one of the first 5 rounds. So if you are pretty sure about all twelve answers in a particular round, double it to get 24.

The sixth round is a speed round. It consists of one question with 30 possible answers. It could be something like "Most populous cities in the U.S." or "current members of the Chicago Blackhawks." There's really no telling until he reveals the question. At that point you've got about 4 minutes to write down as many answers as possible.

On Sunday afternoon, the M.C. will post the topics for the rounds on Facebook and clues for Round 2 on Twitter.  I'll copy and paste them in the comments section so you know what you're getting yourself in to.

They're no longer doing chosen rounds. Too many people constantly asking for the same tv shows or ridiculous stuff like bluegrass music.

And just another factoid that could come in handy: Walt Disney passed away on December 15th, 1966. That just makes me wonder who killed Walt Disney. With a wrench.

We'll see you there!

      I would put good money on Bret Michaels being one of the answers for the picture round. Maybe even more than one.

    btw, the "Who killed Walt Disney?" thing is from my favorite Space Ghost: Coast to Coast episode which features Busta Rhymes. Yay!
