Do you ever wonder how much useless knowledge you have stored in your brain? Could you have majored in factoids at whatever state-accredited school you went to? Would you like to document it as well as lord your superiority over your friends and strangers? If so, Pub Trivia night at The Winslow might be the spot for you. In association with the NYC Trivia League, The Winslow hosts a free Trivia Night every Monday at 7pm. Sure, trivia nights can be a dime a dozen, but this local haunt nestled between the bustling East Village and Gramercy neighborhoods, boasts an amazing time along with many prizes and specials that are anything but trivial. Sorry, that was a bit heavy-handed. You should still check it out though as The Winslow is amazing and quite conveniently located.
Are You & Your Friends Ready For The Challenge?
Many a Brainiac and alcohol enthusiast alike flock every week to The Winslow to flex their mind muscles as well as chase away any remaining case of the Mondays. Obscure facts: check. Drink Specials: check. Knowing you might be the only person who knows Tim Allen is the only entertainer to simultaneously have the Number 1 bestselling book, Number 1 television show and Number 1 movie at the box office: check. That’s right, Tim Allen. (If didn’t already know that and you are currently racking your brain trying to think of all three, they are: Don’t Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, Home Improvement, and Toy Story, respectively.) This knowledge, and many more factoids can be your weird flex. Just think about the looks on the faces from your friends from work, or even your dates when you lay that gem at their feet. No person is poor with a wealth of trivia knowledge.
Monday Night NYC Trivia Winners Get Paid!
It’s absolutely free to participate and the winning team also gets a $50 Winslow gift certificate to use at a future date (or even future trivia night). A round of shots also goes to 2nd place as well as to the team with the best name. Hint, hint, the trivia host tends to favor the deep cut puns so don’t even try it, “The Lobotomies are No-Brainers”. Pub trivia is great because it covers so many bases. If you’re bringing a group make sure you have “experts” who have general knowledge in pop culture, geography, botany, cobbling, chemistry, geology, history, literature, etc. You know, the hits.
If social anxiety is more your speed, and you hate chatting at bars, NYC Trivia League at The Winslow might help ease that stress. “You see, it’s social– demented and sad, but social.” (This quote was said by the character of John Bender, played by Judd Nelson, from John Hughes 1985 classic The Breakfast Club.) Think about it, it’s a bar activity that everyone can participate in, yet avoid all the small talk. The devil is in the details. (Another Fun fact: this phrase derives from an early German proverb “Der lieve Gott steckt im detail” which loosely translates to “God is in the detail” so have that information packed and ready.) Monday Trivia Night at the Winslow always has drink specials as well as an amazing food and cocktail selection. Grab your thirst, grab your knowledge, grab yourself, grab your friends, then head over to The Winslow on Monday nights and grab a table. No seriously, seating is limited and tables are first come first serve so be there promptly at 7pm.
NYC Trivia League allows teams to compete in a season format, against not only all teams competing at their home venue, but also against every other league team playing across our 75-bar network.
Plain and simple: it doesn’t cost you a dime to play, and every bar we host at offers great prizes to the top teams. Additionally, it’s free to join our league. Teams compete for thousands of dollars at our season-end King’s Cup: Trivia Tournament of Champions, so what is there to lose?
Six players is the sweet spot. Six or fewer people on a team? Amazing. Do you have more than six people on your team? Split up into two teams and play against your friends for bragging rights and possibly the bar’s nightly prizes.
Each trivia night or event has five rounds, 10 questions each round, and each question is worth a point, for a possible point total of 50 at the end of the night — no betting, no wagering. Rounds have ranged from European history to cartoons that don’t wear pants. Most trivia nights include a music round and a picture round.
Rules: 1) No cell phones. No Shazam. No Google. No Bing. If we catch you cheating, you will be disqualified. 2) Don’t shout out the answer. It’s free to play, so why not grab an answer sheet from your trivia host? Please just keep the answers to yourself. 3) Your trivia host has the final say.\
League teams can score points at ANY of our bars, and you can attended MULTIPLE bars each week, with your highest score that week counting towards your season score. Registering for NYC Trivia League is free, and your team can also compete for over $1000 in prizes at each of our King’s Cup: Trivia Tournament of Champions.
The best a League Team can do is to score a 100 for the night. Your score is made up of three key factors:
1.) The number of questions answered correctly during Trivia. This is based on a 50-point scale.
2.) The place in which you finish compared to the other teams.
3.) The number of teams that you defeat at your bar on the night. We can call this your “Notches” score.
In a given trivia night you can receive up to 50 points based solely on correctly answered questions. Then we award a max of 35 points based on how well you place according to this scale:
35 for 1st place
30 for 2nd place
20 for 3rd place
15 for 4-6th place
10 for 7-10th place
For the remaining 15 points, your Notches score:
Defeating 15+ teams = 15 points
10-14 = 13 points
6-9 = 6 points
5 = 5, 4=4, 3=3, 2=2, 1=1
