Calling all trainers: Join us at Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade for our first Pokémon Go Party! It seems practically everyone is playing the new mobile game that transforms our everyday world into one where hundreds of adorable creatures can be found. Landmarks and iconic businesses become stops to collect items and lure wild Pokémon, or gyms where rival teams battle for control. We're hooked on it too here at Ground Kontrol, and it's tough to maintain control of our own gym! Come down to Ground Kontrol for a night of Pokémon-inspired food and drink specials, special trainer challenges and, of course, PLENTY of Zubats. Where do they all come from?!? Dress in your team's colors and be ready for photo ops and surprise giveaways! More details will be added as we confirm them, so RSVP and invite your friends!

Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK. Our quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television. You can get a feel for the questions we ask by playing a sample round here. Each quiz has two audio rounds: a "Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV. Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you're some kind of savant. If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team. Winning teams gets street cred, bar credit and other prizes! Bonus Questions for more prizes are sprinkled throughout the quiz. You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin' Jeopardy! http://www.geekswhodrink.com/
