Let's Get Trivial!

Two trivia contestants battling for the crown of Brooklyn's Smartest Nerd  

Very rarely here at the Brooklyn Collection are we able to combine three of our most indefatigable passions: showcasing our broad knowledge of Brooklyn's past; partnering with local businesses to bring fun and free events to the public; and enjoying a drink or two with friends. But now, thanks to a new partnership with Sepia, a local bar just steps from Central library's door, we can pursue all three passions simultaneously in the form of a... Trivia Night!

So here's what you need to know (aside from, say, knowing the name of the first mayor of Brooklyn):

Who: Teams of four will compete. Bring three friends or come solo and we'll match you up with some real eggheads.
What: Brooklyn trivia night.
Where: Bar Sepia, 234 Underhill Avenue (at Lincoln Place)
When: Tuesday, April 16th at 9pm
Why: Because you can win a bar tab!

There's no need to register ahead of time, just show up at the bar and be prepared to answer 40 of the toughest trivia questions you can imagine. We'll cover everything from Abraham & Straus to Zach Wheat. If you think you know Brooklyn you got another think coming. We hope to see you there!

Hey Christine:
Some of them, who shall be nameless, got home at 2 in the morning and looked a little peaky the next day. I hear it was a huge success.
