Keen to escape the day-to-day monotony of your life with a night of useless facts and bulk drinks? Well, strap your smart person pants on gang, we’ve found just the thing.
Not only is trivia generally a laugh a minute, it’s also pretty cheap to participate and you get to think of a hilariously inappropriate name for your team. Here are six local spots to test your knowledge (from north to south).
Last Night on Earth
It’s one of the best nights in town with trivia lovers flocking from all over the Coast to take out the top prize. The fun starts at 7pm on Wednesday’s with plenty of inappropriate questions, excessive beers and loads of laughs. Entry is free but teams are a maximum of six people and bookings are a must.
Where: 50B Nerang Street, Southport
Mermaid Beach Bowls Club
The Mermaid Beach Bowls Club is always a good time and never more so than Thursday nights. From 7pm you and your squad can get involved in the festivities and compete for cash prizes and drink vouchers while downing some fish and chips and a shandy or two. Happy days. There’s over $150 in prizes to be won.
Where: 9 Markeri Street, Mermaid Beach
Every week Quiz On My Face brings a night of trivia to The Arc, hosted by one of their funniest acts, testing your knowledge of some of the most important subjects known to man. Also a themed affair with lots of tasty eats and tipples on offer, don’t miss out on this good time.
Where: 28 Chairlift Ave, Nobbys Beach
Bine Bar & Dining
The sweet little Nobby’s beer bar is home to trivia good times every week with themed nights the way of things eg. Harry Potter. While you’re there, try a range of tasty craft beers, there’s a trio of tacos for $15 or grab a few cheap (tasty) chicken wings. It’s $15 per team with a max of six people. FUN.
Where: 1/28 Chairlift Avenue, Miami
Wednesday night is the one at Justin Lane where you can join in the good times for just $1 per person. You’ll find yourself upstairs in the event space, surrounded by mouth watering pizzas and a cocktail or three no doubt. Every entry donation goes into the jackpot jar with a question asked at the end of the night to see who takes home the cash. You gotta be in it to win it. Bookings essential.
Where: 1708—1710 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads
It’s a Tuesday night good time at Club Talle from 6.30pm. Enjoy ocean views, dinner specials and the chance to win cash money if you come first, second or seventh (find out why, when you get there). Bookings are essential and we recommend signing up as a member to get discounted drinks too!
Where: 1505 Gold Coast Hwy, Palm Beach
