Trivia Night in Downtown Elgin

So I went with a girlfriend last night to Trivia Night at Elgin Public House. And man, do I feel dumb.

Who knows what the three parts of a comet are? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?

The three parts are the nucleus, the tail and the coma. I feel like that was buried somewhere deep in my brain from elementary school. Same goes for many of the questions - the answers were in there somewhere, just couldn't dig 'em up. Of course, beer doesn't help.

Though it does help you come up with very funny answers when you don't know the real answer. Which for us was the majority of the time. And probably only the two of us thought they were funny. Whatev.

They say two heads are better than one. When it comes to Trivia Night, 10 heads are better than two. There were 5 large teams playing against eachother, all having a great time, and using their combined brain power to come up with the answers to some pretty difficult questions.

The music round was entertaining. And not just because emcee Brent Edwards was nerd dancing to the sound bytes. The theme was musicals. And the team who got every answer right was made up of young, athletically inclined guys. Kinda funny. Maybe you had to be there.

And you should be there! Check out Trivia Night at Elgin Public House on Wednesday nights starting promptly at 8 p.m. 219 E. Chicago Street in Downtown Elgin. or call (847) 468-8810.

Hey Tonya, the fam and I usually go to Wednesday night Trivia at Public House! We love it, especially Brent as the host, the cost of $2 to participate, and that you can have larger teams to make the questions less difficult. (Also, most questions aren't impossible like they can be at some trivia times even guessable!) It's usually pretty packed, and always a good time. Anyone considering going should check it out!

...yeah...nerd dance? I'll try and come up with some better steps next time. Maybe I'll ask you to join me on stage. I do that from time to time. It's a lot of fun! Thanks for coming out and having a good time.

Thanks for this piece of information. Let me know if families can attend as well.

Maybe I can also let the moms in the bizymoms Elgin community know about it.
