Let’s put those little tidbits of knowledge to the test. Trivia nights across Rhode Island provide a great opportunity to test your smarts accompanied by good company and your favorite drink. From burger bars in Providence to pubs in Bristol, here are the best trivia nights in the state.
Ogies Trailer Park is actually a restaurant and bar decked out in “kitschy trailer park–inspired decor,” and the place is home to one of the best trivia nights in town. Number one, nothing goes better with trivia night than American bar food classics, and, number two, trivia night is always on a Tuesday, so it is easy to remember.
We are not sure if trivia night is an Irish thing or not, but who doesn’t love an Irish pub that serves traditional Irish food and spirits, like homemade corned beef and cabbage and an assortment of homeland whiskey. Plus, you’ll find other pub favorites like hand-cut fries, burgers, steaks, fish n chips, and Trivia Night Tuesdays.
Founded in 1955, this family-owned RI restaurant chain has eight locations around the Ocean State, and each one offers classic hometown American fare as well as a weekly trivia night. In some locations that night is on a Monday, but, it usually falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday. Either way, the burgers will be hot and juicy, and the draught beer will be cold and frothy.
The Fastnet Pub doesn’t promise to be anything special, just your straightforward waterhole with wide-screen TVs, ping-pong, foosball, darts, and live music and entertainment. At this traditional Irish bar, the only games you will catch on TV, though, are sailing competitions, rugby, and football (soccer to us Americans). Plus, every Wednesday night is trivia night, and there are plenty of old-world and domestic brews to try.
