The Economist to Host a Trivia Night

If you like trivia and alcohol — and who doesn’t? — you should check out The Economist’s Pub Quiz on Monday, October 17, at Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg. The night is free and will be hosted by Lane Greene, the magazine’s Business Correspondent and language blogger.

To register, send an email to nypubquiz[at]economist[dot]com. We’re probably going to attend even though our trivia knowledge typically leans more Sports Illustrated than Economist, so maybe we’ll see you there. In the meantime, we’re making some flash cards. Yes, we take trivia that seriously.
