Vanquish your neighbors, win prizes: The Brooklyn Trivia Challenge

Sep 29, 2010 11:39 AM | 1 comment

 TONIGHT! Wednesday, September 29th 7:00 p.m., 6:30 for wine and cheese

Something must be in the air, some twin wind blowing and doubling everything up; in another instance of eerie coincidence, it looks like we have, unbeknownst to us, planned a trivia night the evening after a similar event is slated to be held at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Oh well. I guess good things come in pairs, especially if you love rattling your brain trying to answer questions about Brooklyn history. And besides, anyone who knows Brooklyn knows that one trivia night could never get at all of the strange factual gold buried in this borough’s historical mountain.

So if you haven’t had your fill of Brooklyn related trivia by Wednesday night September 29th, come out to the Brooklyn Collection and test your wits by answering some of the toughest questions our dedicated staff could devise. Among others, categories will include: Arts and Entertainment, Landmarks, Sports, and Famous Brooklynites.

Come on your own and be teamed up with other library-goers, or bring friends and compete as a team.

Come at 6:30pm to enjoy the refreshments. The competition will begin at 7pm.

Sorry cannot attend your Brooklyn Trivia night but here's something you might add, I am writing a short history of some of the Brooklyn Pigotts, so here's the question which Dunn & Bradstreet publication had its origins in a Brooklyn one. The answer is Pigott's Encyclopaedia for Exporters started by Charles Pigott bn 1867 with assistance of his brother George bn 1866.
I live a very long way away near Bunbury in the south-west of Western Australia and have found a great deal to interest me in the Brooklyn Eagle on-line.
