If your idea of a trivia quiz at a bar is ‘Hey baby, what’s your sign?’, then you haven’t caught on to one of the more fun reasons to visit your local pub lately.  Pub Quizzes, sometimes called Quiz Nights or Trivia Nights, seemed to have originated in England in the 70’s and then become a hit in the U.S.  The formats vary but usually involve a quiz master and teams.  There are often prizes for the winning team.  So if you’re one of those people who know a little about a lot of things, check out one of these bars on trivia night and test your skill.
