Fun & Free Portland Trivia Nights + Win Prizes! | ShanRock’s Triviology

Our sponsors @ Shanrocks:
I am Trivia Jock ShanRock, and my team and I create and host fun and unique pub quizzes in beautiful Portland, Oregon. It’s free to play, and the team victorious walks away with cash or prizes . . . and perhaps more importantly, glory! Have you tried the rest? Now try the best!

Willamette Week’s Best of Portland 2007, and the Portland Mercury’s Best Trivia Night that is! Also, I am thrilled to have been selected Best Entertainer In North Portland, Town’s Terrific-est TJ, and most recently, my La Merde Triviology was awarded the Portland Monthly title of Best Bar To Play!

About the Pub Quizzery

Triviology pub quizzes are free to play, last a couple of hours, and are composed of seven short rounds, giving teams instant gratification for their efforts. Team size can range from one – five players, with prizes for everyone on the winning team. Questions are thoroughly researched and cover a wide variety of topics. Here’s my standard format (play the sample quiz here!)

  • Tuesdays @ 7:00
    2338 NE Alberta Street
    *Cruzroom represents Triviology’s exclusive engagement on Alberta! This unique bar has received glowing praises in the press – here’s the proof!

  • Tuesdays @ 8:00
    Rae’s Lakeview Lounge
    1900 NW 27th Ave, Portland, OR

  • Wednesdays @ 7 p.m.
    Peter’s Bar & Grill @ 5701 NE Fremont St.

  • Thursdays @ 7
    East Burn
    @ 1800 E. Burnside
    We make the trivia downstairs in The Tap Room, which is like the coolest rumpus room in town. The people of Portland have spoken, and every year they tell us that East Burn is a favorite bar for trivia by voting for it in Portland Mercury’s PDX Approved survey! ShanRock is your hostess here.

    ShanRock’s Triviology is delighted to unite with Zach’s Shack for a new weekly trivia adventure! The Shack ain’t just wieners, people – they got booze, they got fries, they got ping-pong, they got beer, they got veggie dogs, they got Pac-Man, they got Jalapeno poppers! Oh…and they got quizzery!
  • Thursdays @ 9:00
    La Merde
    @ 301 SE Morrison
    Free to play; gift certificates to the bar for the champs!

Admire La Merde’s trophy case between rounds; they’ve won many an award from Triviology regulars over the years for Best Bartender and Best Venue. The trivia game challenges your knowledge of everything from movies to books to music to geography, and there’s even a nerd-crushing physical challenge. Come see why this bar is The Shit!
