The Union Hotel in Nth Sydney has a pretty tough competition, with some locals who have a some serious knowledge. It sopans everything from ancient history to name that 1980s video clip, so you've gotta know your stuff.

though there are a few people there taking it way to seriously, it's only a $100 prizeshared between several people!

I go every now and again to Trivia!

I like both Forresters in Surry Hills on Thursday nights and the Woolpack Hotel in Redfern on Wednesday nights . . .

I always get the Golden Girls questions. . . . hehe

Check out Vbar (111 liverpool st) on a Wednesday around 7. If you work in the city it's one of the only venues that does it on Wednesdays.. they give out Cds, movie tickets and free alcohol and at the end of the night the winner gets a $50 bar tab. Plus it's a good lookin' venue and the staff are really nice

The World bar has an excellent Music quiz every Wednesday for all the trainspotters (me included), who think they know a thing about music from the last 50 odd years, there's also an internet league for all teams that come every week.

Top 3 teams get a free bar tab each week

Hehehe... you could say I have to a few Weaver yes ;-)

Actually I used to go pretty regularly but most of my pub trivia mates have moved overseas - so I am actually looking for a regular night again. Sport is my speciality so if you are looking for another regular member of your team I would love to come along if you'll have me :-)

Feel free to Email be at boobasinc@hotmail.com

not telling where i go, cos me n the boys seem to win about 75% of the time, and letting the cat out of the bag would mean less free beer.

my tip is find a quiet little pub full of dumbarses and become a local legend!

p.s. you have to be like, fully smart like me

The Clarendon in Surry Hills is where we are on Tuesday. Nick, who hosts the night, is a funny dude.

Used to do one and won every week but the only prize was bar vouchers. After about 6 weeks they told us to use them or lose them so we were all given pints of scotch. I refuse to do trivia again.

Heya all - odd request maybe here...

Anyone keen to have me on board next time they go out trivia-ing. I'm not a genius and I'll admit my memory sometimes fails me after a few beers but I've been to a few trivia nights and love em. More about the fun than the seriousness of it all really...

Just drove over to Sydney from Perth and looking to meet new people - seems like a good place to start
