Pub Quiz Mania:
Tiki Lounge Action
Geeks and nerds alike drink, and now they have ample pub-quiz options around town. The infamous Geekshow Podcast—TheGeekShowPodcast.com—helmed by Radio From Hell’s Kerry Jackson—joins forces with Big Shiny Robot (BigShinyRobot.com) for the eighth Big Shiny Geekshow Pub Quiz Thursday. Geeks Who Drink no longer have a corner on the pub quiz action in terms of “geeky-ness,” due to content at Burt’s Pub Quiz being geared towards the comic book set, with questions about pop culture like Star Wars, Joss Whedon and Toys/Novelties. The quizzing lasts from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. at Burt’s Tiki Lounge (726 South State). Enjoy some chicken fingers, corndogs and Scottie’s Famous Pickled Eggs during the quiz, and afterward catch a round of karaoke.
Even Monday nights find a crowd and excitement at Poplar Street Pub (242 S. 200 West). Karaoke and 25-cent wings bring ’em in–and out to the patio, as well. Poplar has always had one of the more secluded, yet lively, downtown patios of all the Salt Lake City bars and clubs and is definitely worth an evening out.
