From our sponsors @ Geeks Who Drink:
Anyone can grab a deck of Trivial Pursuit cards and run a “trivia night.” Geeks Who Drink’s smartass quizmasters run fast-paced, interactive and beer-soaked pub quiz events all over Portland.
They never feature stale or generic categories like movie, music, history and science rounds. Their two full-time editors (including a six-time Jeopardy champion) and staff of dozens of contributors spend more than twelve man hours on each night’s 8 rounds of 64 questions (including two audio rounds and one visual and/or video round).
A typical Tuesday night might feature rounds like “John Goodman Yelling,” “Spay and Neuter This! (each answer being the name of a Price Is Right pricing game),” or “Song of the Sellout (clips from commercial song parodies).”
New to Portland? Want to make some new friends? If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway and touch base with the Quizmaster. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team.
Winning teams get street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the venue and depending on whether it’s a free or pay-to-play quiz. Bonus questions for free pints are also sprinkled throughout the quiz.

Let’s be honest, Portland: when we think of cheap beer, food, and games, there’s honestly not much better than Cheerful Tortoise. Located on 4th, right by the Max and seconds from Campus, Cheerful Tortoise boasts the $1.98 breakfast special as well as a fourteen beer rotating tap-list. Not to mention their Chicken Tortilla soup is out of this world! With space to spare, Cheerful Tortoise is our most central quiz: and bound to be our most competitive.

Goose Hollow! Finally, a quiz for you! Located just off the blue or red line and right in the ‘hood of Jeld-Wen, Cheerful Bullpen has long been known as a pre- and post-game spot for the Timbers Army. One of the best kept secrets of the Goose Hollow area, it boasts a fenced in patio surrounded by trees and a seemingly ramshackle cover, where inside a legendary Mac Dog, $1.99 breakfast, and Huckleberry Martini keep people coming back. Come on down on Wednesdays and try your might in the newest of our quiz locations!
