It's worth knowing that every Wednesday night at King's Bierhaus in the Heights, 7 p.m. brings trivia. It's earlier than most trivia nights in town, a very good thing for, you know, grown-ups with jobs and stuff. The prizes go beyond the usual T-shirts and koozies, too, with gift cards to the restaurant and beer steins among them.
But this week is different. Even if you don't know anything except who Bran Stark is named after, and think trivia hounds are nerds but speak fluent Dothraki, the Wednesday, August 23 installment is for you. This week, King's is serving up Game of Thrones trivia, complete with a full menu devoted to the show, currently in its seventh, and second to last, season.
Here's the menu, so don your furs in readiness and get ready for battle:
