Test Your Knowledge at These Trivia Nights in Metro Detroit

Including quizzes from Sporcle, Quizzo, My Trivia Live, and more


Published:

Canton Bistro & Tavern
Ideal for those who don’t do late nights, the tavern holds trivia from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays. The Michigan-based company My Trivia Live, which has competitions throughout the state, hosts the game. Participants are able to form their own team to compete for a place in the league’s semi-finals, and first through third-place winners are eligible for “Bistro Bucks” starting at $5. The restaurant offers happy hour specials for competitors, and the menu includes tacos, prime rib, kielbasa, and salads.

Dearborn Brewing
Quizzo, a metro Detroit-based trivia company, hosts games at the brewery every Monday at 7 p.m. There are six rounds — plus a bonus round where teams can wage points in an attempt to pull ahead of one another. In the bonus round, “a ‘hero’ [who correctly answers a question], will receive two points for their team,” says owner and manager, Sheila Rucinski. “A ‘villain’ takes two points away from a team of their choice, and the ‘drunk’ is where the host buys that individual a beer. Most of our players end up choosing the drunk.”

Great Baraboo Brewing Co.
The Clinton Township locale holds games by trivia company Sporcle every Monday at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. Free to join with no size limit for teams, participants can compete for gift cards up to $25. Teams that play at least 50 percent of the games hosted at Great Baraboo during the league’s regular season may also qualify for a spot in the division’s League Championship, with an opportunity to win a cash prize. Pizza is half off on trivia days, and there are $3 pints when Michigan sports teams play.

Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery
On Tuesday nights, Sporcle also hosts trivia at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the West Canfield restaurant. Jolly Pumpkin’s communal seating offers plenty of space for large team sizes and the winner of the night receives a gift card to the restaurant, valued from $10 to $20. The spot is well known for its seasonal beer options and unexpected pizza selections like the South Pacific, with bacon and candied pineapple.

One-Eyed Betty’s
This Ferndale restaurant is known for its craft beer selection, whiskey specials, and themed trivia nights. Hosted by Quizzo, One-Eyed Betty’s will hold a The Office-themed trivia night on March 28 — during its recent Friends night, nearly 50 teams played, so expect the evening to be crowded. Prizes range from $10 to $50 in One-Eyed Betty’s gift cards. Larger teams should plan on getting to the restaurant early to make sure they can grab a table.
175 W. Troy St., Ferndale; 248-808-6633; oneeyedbettys.com

Roger’s Roost
Join fellow trivia lovers at Roger’s Roost from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesdays. The restaurant hosts a Jeopardy!-style game every week. Gift certificates to Roger’s Roost are awarded to the first through third-place winners for $5, $10, and $25, respectively. There is no size limit for teams, and $2.75 domestic beers are on special. Menu items include smoked beef brisket, cedar plank salmon, and the most popular option during trivia night — half off pizza.
