In school, students learn a lot of facts — some of them more valuable than others. Trivia can be a great way to turn this knowledge into prizes.
Start off the week by dropping knowledge at Country Fried Duck’s trivia at 9 p.m.
The five rounds of challenging trivia range from a top-40 music round to a poetry round and are accompanied by drink specials. At the end of the night, everyone gets a prize. This week, prizes included sunglasses, a beach ball, t-shirts, hats and a $50 gift card for the winning team.
Trivia really gets going on Tuesdays, with an array of options around town. In Chapel Hill, there’s Linda’s, Goodfellows and He’s Not Here, and in Carrboro, there’s Hickory Tavern and Steel String Brewery.
The towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro differ and so do the bars’ atmospheres and clientele. Linda’s is a popular spot for trivia, which goes from 8 to 10 p.m. For those students who are looking to double up, Goodfellows trivia just down the street starts at 10 p.m.
If you’re looking to trivia for a good cause, He’s Not Here’s trivia has been benefitting UNC’s chapter of Timmy Global Health for over a year and a half, said former Timmy president and UNC senior Sarah Boland.
Timmy is a national non-profit health organization that sends medical service teams to Latin America.
