What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in random activities that may be less frequently offered in other types of meetups. Some sample activities include getting bubble tea, photography, snowboarding, Pokemon Go, nature walks, biking, reading a book series, visiting art galleries, going to comedy clubs, etc. Events are organized around a broad range of activities, just depending on organizers' interests and imagination, and what members support through their participation. The goal is not to replace other groups but to fill times and offer diverse opportunities other groups haven't covered, and build shared social experiences.

Safety is always a priority for Random Fun meetups. If anyone notices behaviors or circumstances of concern that are not consistent with meetup policy please bring it to an organizers' attention. We want to create a fun and safe environment that makes everyone feel welcome at every event.

Trivia Meetup at Come Back In - Downtown Madison

Needs a location

***NOTE: This week we have 2 trivia events at the same time again - this one at Come Back In, and another at Me & Julio. Please choose one event or the other and keep your RSVP up to date! An attendance limit will be set but there should be spots open now between the two events. If the Me & Julio location works out we may be phasing out Come Back In.

We've been crushing the competition and have had some fun times at Come Back In trivia, and it has been less crowded and less noisy than many trivia venues, but still with enough teams to make for good competition.

The food's not bad either. Website menu link:

If you aren't sure you can contribute in a trivia competition, consider this. If you are able to answer one question that no one else is sure of, it can make all the difference. No one knows all the answers. It takes a diverse team. Everyone is welcome.

Trivia starts at 6:30 but please plan to arrive by 6:15 so we won't be scrambling to get it together. Entry to the parking lot is from Blair St. which is under construction through this fall. Check the Come Back In website for a current detour map. This busy lot is shared by 3 businesses, so allow a little extra time for parking too.

Premier Trivia format:

An attendance limit will be set at so please keep your RSVP up to date if there is a waitlist. No-shows may not be welcome to future events.

We may be branching out to other trivia venues and nights. Let us know if you have a favorite place to suggest.

Trivia Meetup @ Me&Julio in Fitchburg

Needs a location

NOTE: This event is the same night and time as the ComeBackIn Trivia Meetup. Please choose one event or the other and keep your RSVP up to date! An attendance limit will be set but there should be enough spots open now between the two events for everyone to play.

We've been crushing the competition and having fun at the Come Back In but there always seems to be more people wanting to attend than spots available so now we are trying out a new West Side location. Take a break from the heat and come relax in a spacious, air conditioned neighborhood bar with TexMex flair, Me&Julio!

There's more to their menu than just Mexican too. With burgers, chicken, soups, salads, steak, fish and a variety of appetizers there's something for everyone.
