Trivia-ing Skeptically! on Thursdays

We're trying something new, to see if you all like it for a change o'pace! Trivia happens every week -- so we may not post them all every week forever... unless you all love 'em!

This is team trivia, so you compete alongside (rather than against) the other skeptics who show up. Teams can be any size, so bring your smarty-pants friends. If you show up and there aren't any other skeptics there, you've got a couple of choices. First, you could play on your own. It's not unusual for a solo "team" to beat everyone else in the house. But this is a social occasion, so your other choice is to talk to Jim, your skeptical host (he's the one wearing the question mark t-shirt). He knows what teams are naughty and nice and he'll find you a friendly team to play with. Just show up. You don't need to know anything in advance. There's no preparation required.

On Thursday, Jim hosts trivia at:
Moore's Delicatessen, 271 E. Orange Grove Ave., Burbank, CA 91502

This venue is a well-lit gastro-pub/deli. It's across the street from Cartoon Network, so all the CN guys go there for lunch. They painted the walls white and gave everyone magic markers, so the walls are covered in animation art.

    Sari and I SO wanted to be there, but 7PM is impossible from Culver City. Maybe somewhere that starts later next time?

    Can somebody please explain in more detail just what these Trivia nights are about? I haven't a clue. Is it game playing? Doing crossword puzzles? What's up?

      Essentially its different groups of people sitting at tables with an official announcer reading off a set of questions to which we (as a group) try and guess the correct answers to. For top teams that can get the most number of questions right, there are some gift certificates they can collect for (in this case) Moore's Deli.

      (Oops, submitted before I finished) We are basically playing a game with like 30+ people playing. One week there were 13 teams, last week I think there were 7 teams. The skeptics who are attending work as a group (we are the only skeptics group there) and we are competing against everyone else in the restaurant...and having a lot of fun in the process. Questions range from music, movies, sports, geography, science, literature, history, and more. I have certainly been learning a lot in the process.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
