• Bar Trivia - General knowledge topics

    The Brass Tap

    Join us for a smokin' good time! Who knew Tuesday night trivia would be so much fun? Put on your thinking caps and join us as we compete for fabulous prizes (Brass Tap gift cards) and see which team gets the Golden Goose, #2 or the Tribble. Alex will be your host this week. I set the number of RSVPs at 18 for three teams of six. Gather, cocktails and apps at 7:15 pm. Trivia starts at 8 p.m. Weekly Disclaimer: As there has been a few no shows lately [there were two on 8/13, please don't do this because those on the waitlist can't move up), I am asking that everyone who signs up reconfirm 48 hours in advance so we have an accurate count and those on the waitlist can attend if a space becomes available. Thank you.

  • Veronica Mars Theme Trivia

    The Brass Tap

    Veronica Mars Trivia - Trivia starts at 7pm We can’t reserve tables on Wednesday nights, so I set a limit of 10 to be safe. Though, it would be great if a few people could get there early to help save tables. I’ll be racing there from teaching in Chicago Heights. Do you remember - Who is Veronica's best friend that was murdered? How did Logan's mom die? What is Veronica's dog's name? What is the mystery that Veronica solves in season 2? What college did Veronica go to to? If you can answer these questions or feel like binge watching all 3 seasons before the new one starts ... 😄 Where are the Veronica Mars fans? Let’s try to win some prizes! Wednesday Specials: 50% off ALL Bottles of Wiine $5 Flatbreads $2 off ALL Whikey Pours
