The Long Island bar scene has become so much more than a place to grab a drink and socialize after work. Between weeknight menu specials, bottomless drinks and a chance to relax and hang with friends, local bars have begun adding a fun twist to their night: trivia.
People clamor at the chance to win free drinks and prizes as adrenaline rises to see who can get a perfect score when asked about sports, pop culture, music, travel and history. Think Jeopardy! with beer. The best part is not only coming up with a killer team name, it’s getting your brain to think while you drink and enjoy time with your friends.
Check out these bars and pubs that offer trivia nights during the week.
