True Nerd Trivia vs. Last Minute Craziness: Trivia Wins!

by Keren Form

As many of you know, due to some extreme (and extremely annoying) circumstances, True Nerd Trivia was forced to re-locate just four hours before the event was scheduled to start last night. We did our best to notify all our attendees. For anyone who didn’t get the message and was unable to attend, we are so sorry!

To all our contestants who did make it to Bar 82, thank you for making it a success despite all the craziness! And congratulations to Treebeard, who took the pie and stand tall as our current True Nerd Trivia champs!

Everyone seemed to really like the backroom of Bar 82, so we are working on making that our new home. Stay tuned for more details! Updates to follow soon on Facebook.

For those of you that were unable to attend last night, below are our questions of the evening for your play-at-home pleasure! Answers to follow soon!
