What may be trivial information to some, could mean a chance to win some cash tonight at Speakeasy. Trivia night is back, and so is the chance to go home with more money than you came with. Get a team together of friends (max. of 5) for six rounds of answers and questions. Don’t have a team? Not to worry, you can find one to join when you arrive. The categories can range anywhere from science and technology, to film, and music. The fee to play is only 5,000 won. The second place team will get their money back, and the first place team will take the rest of the pot. Nate is your quiz master, so get down to Speakeasy for trivia night! The fun will begin at 10:00 p.m., and if you need more info then please go to their Facebook page.
