Thinkin’ and Drinkin’ Trivia
Tuesday, Oct. 18 (and every Tues)
Old Town Public House, 21314 Catawba Ave.
If you haven’t been to one of Old Town Public House’s regular Tuesday trivia nights, this week is the week to change that. Hosted by Sean Lewis, founder of Thinkin’ and Drinkin,’ this team-based trivia experience is free to play and all players receive $1 off draft beers (or wines or sodas) for the duration of the game. The three rounds of play begin at 7:30 p.m., 8:15 p.m. and 9 p.m. Your team does not have to be present for all three rounds, as the scores start over each round. Trivia will include general knowledge questions, with clues released via Facebook and Twitter throughout the week.
Now’s the time to try it out, in preparation for the Thinkin’ and Drinkin’ November tournament of champions! Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect: Beginning Nov.1, teams will accumulate points week to week in month-long competitions for the coveted OTPH Thinkin’ and Drinkin’ goblet as well as other grand prizes. So come out this week and get your feet wet (and your taste buds) with top-notch trivia and the finest craft beer selection in the area.
Don’t have a team? That’s ok! OTPH’s warm and welcoming environment makes it easy to make connections. People enter OTPH as strangers and leave as friends on a regular basis!
Two Sunday morning traditions are combining at Cork and Cask for an experience you can’t miss: Old school Hip Hop accompanies a special brunch, to satisfy your hunger and your hearing in ways you can’t find anywhere else.
The old school hip hop menu will include some old school brunch favorites as well as some “new releases”, and several nostalgic 80s and 90s hip hop-themed drink specials.
The Panthers are on a bye week, so you can head to brunch without missing our home team, and if you ask nicely, the Cork and Cask staff will gladly put on your preferred game in the background.
