 Geeks Who Drink

Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK. Their quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television. 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. Winning teams gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the venue. Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz.

Geeks Who Drink participate in different bars across NJ. Currently they do events in 4 locations, 3 in Jersey City and 1 in Bayonne.  To check out their schedule click here
