Seattle Trivia Crawls
During Seattle Trivia Crawls, participants 21 and older make their way through a Seattle neighborhood as they prove their existing know-how in bouts of pub trivia. At three local bars along the way, teams of up to five share food, drinks, and minds to compete in rounds of general-knowledge questions that range from "Yesterday's News" to a Jeopardy!-style contest. The evening culminates in the crowning of bar-crawl trivia champion, who receives prizes to take home to the locker in which they get stuffed every night.
