Game On

So you think you know it all? Join the fun and prove it

It's hardly news that the City That Works becomes Party City as soon as Happy Hour gets going. With no shortage of bars, residents now expect to find people enjoying themselves at their favorite hot spot, no matter when.

But there's more going on than just beer and pool. A number of area nightspots are offering regular game nights as antidotes to the do-nothing blues. "We get a great turnout because we try to offer something for everyone," says Gerard Robertson, owner of Coalhouse Pizza, where Wednesday is Trivia and Game Night. "Trivia Night gets a little rowdy because we have lots of returning rival teams."

Given the success of this game night, there are Art Nights in the works. But above all, fun and participation is key. "We do these events because these are the kinds of things we enjoy," Robertson says. "And we want to share that fun with everyone else."

So does the staff at Tigin, where Tuesday is Pub Quiz Night. "We get an incredible following, "says Ian Fulton, Tigin's general manager. It's such a great night. Sometimes we get 150 people, about thirty-four or thirty-five teams. We get teams of doctors playing against nurses, policemen against firemen."

Adding to the fun is a Whammy Wheel, which the winner spins at the end of the game. "You can win $150 or a $50 tab," explains Fulton. "Or you could get nothing. Even if you win you still lose," he laughs.

Sounds like fun right? So make it a game night. Bring friends or make new ones at any of these bars, now offering some friendly competition to go with that beer.
