Pubs and bars across Long Island have hopped aboard the trivia train, offering a night filled with delicious food, brews, company and the chance to show the universe (or at least a bar full of people) that your encyclopedic knowledge of the 1986 Mets Worlds Series team isn’t so useless after all. We’ve scouted the area for the top Long Island trivia night locations to test your knowledge.
Tuesday Night Trivia at Prost Grill & Garten, Garden City
Starting at 9pm, experience authentic German cuisine and brews mixed with some exciting sports or movie questions. Better yet, take advantage of burger & brew night from 5-9pm, which means guests get a free beer with their burgers. The burgers are served on pretzel buns—enough said. Play.
Tuesday Night Trivia at Taproom No.307, New York
The rules are simple: one to six people per team and two hours of trivia starting at 7:30pm.
