Trivia Tuesdays

One of the first things I did when I moved to Berkeley in 2006 was trivia night at Pyramid Brewery and Alehouse. Back then, only a few people knew about it, so our team easily landed in third place and went home a six-pack heavier. Nowadays, there's major competition as people arrive a half-hour early to get a prime spot. Trivia nights are great. It is free, alcohol is nearby, and most people like to think they're the smartest in the room.

Today, three spots in the East Bay let you show off your Ken Jennings skills. Get a team together, think of a cool team name, and maybe win some alcoholic prizes.
