For all those people who find themselves shouting answers at the screen during Jeopardy!, several bars in Springfield are providing you with a chance to put your knowledge to the test. At each of their trivia nights, you face questions from any type of category, ranging from pop culture to stuff you learned in middle school. These trivia nights are meant for fun: Hosts sing and dance, players receive silly prizes, and everyone leaves wanting more.
Quizzical consists of five rounds, 10 questions each with increasing point values. The host, Joe Jerry, makes spectating a blast. He sings his own personal theme song to begin the night, plays the piano during questions and even researches the questions himself. “We all like competition, but in the end, it’s all about having fun with your friends,” says longtime participant Jim Jerry. Prizes include $5 Q Enoteca Bucks and Momma Bucks for Big Momma’s Coffee.
Quizzical, free, 7 p.m., Wednesdays, at Q Enoteca, 308 W. Commercial St., Springfield. For more info on Quizzical, please call 417-865-9911.
