Cheap Date: Trivia Nights

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Under normal circumstances, all the random knowledge bouncing around in your head does about as much good as a personal IOU from the late, great auto exec John DeLorean. Moreover, it’s sad to say that (unless you’re dating the coolest female in the world) your uncanny ability to recite every line from Stephen Seagal’s Under Siege isn’t exactly the most direct route to her affections. Sigh, it’s a cruel world – but the pain can be dulled considerably by grabbing a pint and putting that stockpile of absurd information to good use in this week’s cheap date: trivia night.

The folks in St. Louis may not have invented trivia night, but they’ve definitely taken to it. Not quite as overblown as they were a few years back, local trivia nights have settled down into tight little factions, forging a subculture of raucous, pop cultural conjurers who would love to have you and yours join the action. If you’re into the whole parish rectory scene or softball league crowd, check out TriviaNights.net for extensive local listings. But for a date night, it’s much better to find an empty booth at a local pub, loads of which offer brazenly low-priced food and drinks. Here are a few standouts:


Mike Duffy’s – Richmond Heights

Successful teams are handed buckets of free beer at this much heated, Richmond Heights showdown. Starting at 9 p.m., enjoy four rounds of trivia while passing around $6 pitchers of A-B products or $3.50 Boulevard Wheat pints. 6662 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights, 314.644.3700, mikeduffys.com

Market Pub House

A newcomer on the Delmar strip, Market Pub offers an increasingly popular trivia night every Wednesday from 8 till 10 p.m., followed by $1 PBR pitchers, a late-night happy hour including: $2 PBRs, $3 16-ounce drafts, $3 wells, and $4 you-call-its.
6655 Delmar Blvd., U. City, 314.727.8880, marketpubhouse.com

The Post Sports Bar

This Maplewood trivia night mecca is not for the faint of heart. Five rounds of intensity, beginning at 8 p.m., match teams vying for free buckets. Champs take home $50 gift cards. Show up in advance for a solid happy hour that features $5 appetizers, $2 domestic pints and $3 wells. Specials start back up at 9 p.m. with $3 Jaeger bombs and $2.50 domestic bottles. 7372 Manchester Road, Maplewood, 314.645.1109, thepostsportsbar.com


Llywelyn’s Pub – Soulard

This trivia night has been a personal favorite for many years. Show up at 7 p.m., slide into a booth, order a $2 pitcher of Pabst, and prepare for the madness. Happy hour prices ($3 drafts, $3 well cocktails, $12 domestic buckets, half-priced appetizers) are available from 8 p.m. (when trivia kicks off) till close. 1732 Ninth St., St. Louis 314.436.3255, llywelynspub.com
