Sydney Trivia Tuesday – The Occidental – Wynyard – 7:15

Sydney trivia is on every Tuesday, and it’s just a stone’s throw from Wynyard so it’s easy to find.

It’s at The Occidental at 43 York Street in Sydney and it is kicking off every Tuesday at 7:15pm.

We’ve got interesting trivia, we’ve got great food from the bistro, we’ve got happy hour prices until 6:30 (so get in early), and we’ve got prizes courtesy of The Occi.

In short, we have got everything you need for a great night out in Sydney.

So when you finish work on a Tuesday, you can either go home right away, or you can assemble your friends in Wynyard for the most interesting trivia in Sydney.  It’s bound to be a great night out if you are into beer and trivia. (And if you’re not, we have no idea why you are still reading.)

If you’re the kind of person who has memorised every Melbourne Cup winner, congratulations. But to be honest, that probably won’t help you. This isn’t an exam. Rather than just spitting out facts, you’ll probably have have to do some lateral thinking. We will ask questions that you won’t see coming. We will ask questions you probably won’t know off the top of your head, but will enjoy arguing about with your friends. The IQ in iQ Trivia stands for interesting questions, and that is what we will provide.

As always, we’ve got a homework question to give you an advantage. If you want to be on the e-mail list, just send an e-mail to homework@iqtrivia.com.au with Occidental in the subject line to be added to our mailing list.

And the Facebook page dedicated to the show will have additional information to help you out.

Book yourselves in for the best trivia in Sydney by calling 9299 2531.

And we will see you at 7:15pm every Tuesday at Wynyard at The Occi.
