If you’ve ever had a drink at Founding Fathers Pub, then you know that it’s almost impossible to escape being thrown a trivia challenge. Out of the blue, from the tender’s side of the bar, Mike Driscoll will suddenly test your wits with a zinger designed to make you squirm in your barstool. Most of Mike’s questions are based on worldwide knowledge of any and all subject matter. The bar has reached cult status for its trivia and Mike’s followers are many.
Now Buffalo First! is going to mix it up in a way that will keep people guessing on many different levels…
First, quizmaster Mike is stepping away from Founding Fathers for one night only, to test customers’ trivia knowledge at another old-world neighborhood tavern – Ulrich’s. Then, instead of analyzing the crowd’s worldwide trivia prowess, the questions will be formulated solely on local subject matter. If you’re a local then there should be no problem in proving it. If you’re not a local, then it’s time to learn the ins and outs of Buffalo. The more ‘local’ you know, the more ‘local’ you are. The Buffalo trivia evening is coming to Ulrich’s this Tuesday and is the perfect excuse to chill with friends, meet other Buffalonians and test your Buffalo know-how.
Teams should be 5 members, and the entry fee is $5 per person ($25 for each team).
To pre-register a team, please call the Buffalo First! office at 716.725.6100 or send them an e-mail.
Trivia Night at Ulrich’s Tavern is this coming Tuesday, November 15th, at 7pm (although the poster says 8pm… – I’ll find out which is right shortly… Sarah?)
