New Canberra Venue – To All My Friends – Wednesdays at 7:30

Wednesday. It’s the middle of the week. You’re more than halfway to the weekend.

And now it’s got Australia’s most interesting trivia.

We’ve got a new how starting on 31 July at To All My Friends in Cook.

It kicks off at 7:30 with plenty of questions to get you arguing with your friends.

Naturally, To All My Friends has got a great selection of drinks, including eight beer taps.

And a great menu.

And the best bar staff in Canberra.

If you want the homework question, e-mail us at homework@iqtrivia.com.au and you can find out more about the show at our Facebook group.

See you Wednesdays at 7:30.

New Venue – Tattersalls Hotel, Goulburn – Wednesdays

Goulburn has got a new home for trivia every Wednesday.

Starting on 20 March, Tattersalls Hotel in the heart of Goulburn will be staging the most interesting trivia in town.

It’s the best way to spend a Wednesday evening unless you hate interesting trivia, cheap drinks, and delicious food, in which case we’d prefer it if you stayed away and made room for our kind of people.

Make sure you get in for happy hour before the show kicks off for $4 schooners from 4 to 6, and the kitchen will have you covered when it comes to brain food.

You can get ahead of the game with our homework question.  E-mail us on homework@iqtrivia.com.au to have it sent to you every week.

And you can find out more on our Facebook page.

Call 9211 1687 to book a table, and we will see you Wednesday at 7pm.

New Venue – The Occidental Hotel, Sydney – Tuesdays at 7:00

When work ends on Tuesday, you can either head home, or you can head to Australia’s Most Interesting Trivia and get your fix every Tuesday at the Occidental Hotel next to Wynyard.

Whether you’re hungry.

Or thirsty.

Or you just want to win a bar tab and argue with friends and colleagues.

The Occidental has got you covered.  Call them on 9299 2531 to reserve a space.

The show kicks off at 7:00 every Tuesday.  Hints are available on our dedicated Facebook group here, and if you want the weekly homework question e-mailed to you, just contact us at homework@iqtrivia.com.au with The Occidental in the subject line.

See you every Tuesday at the Occidental.  It sure beats heading home.

Barnardo’s Charity Show – 13 October 2016 – Old Canberra Inn

All you iQ Trivia regulars in Canberra have got something to do next Thursday, as one of our venues, The Old Canberra Inn, will be staging a trivia fundraiser for Barnardo’s on 13 October starting at 7:00.

The event will raise money for the Deadly All Stars – a group that aims to educate and foster Aboriginal culture for children and young people who cannot be raised in culturally appropriate homes due to child protection concerns.   They aim to further educate the carers of these children so their cultural identity can be integrated into their everyday life.

Both iQ Trivia and our regular host Joe will be donating our time and talent to the event, and anyone with an interest in the cause should get down to support it.

Tickets are $30 a head with a maximum of 8 people per team, and there are some great prizes on offer, including:

  • $500 cash donated by the Old Canberra Inn.
  • A keg of Capital Brewing’s Pale Ale delivered to your door along with all the equipment you need to enjoy that sweet, sweet beer.

There will also be an auction on the night so bring your wallet along if you want to take home additional prizes.

Contact the Old Canberra Inn directly for tickets on 6134 6000.
