Best Trivia Night - 2009
Telephone Bar - CLOSED
Where is the former nerd now the king? Well, anywhere in New York—this is the promised land of reinvention and intellectual competition—but nowhere more so than the twice-weekly trivia night at Telephone Bar in the East Village. While other low-key bars offer their own minutia-fests on various nights, only Telephone Bar employs a curiously complicated strata of game variations, picture rounds, audio clips, and more; it's a brave new world of useless information. Prizes include bar tabs and free appetizers—and, of course, the knowledge that you have achieved the ultimate revenge of the nerds.
