Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays seem to be the most popular days to host a trivia night, or afternoon trivia in the case of Sundays. Regardless, Saturdays are the only trivia-free days in Chattanooga. If you are feeling like you want to try your random knowledge against others, then go to one of these local places to put it to the test!
Most of the trivia seems to be team-based, but that should not stop you from giving it a go if you want to try out your knowledge as an individual! Otherwise, enjoy making a team with a group of friends and playing to each other’s strengths. There are also lots of different game formats to look into, so one trivia night may not look like one at a different location.
While you are there, you should definitely check out the food and drink they have to offer, as well! Several of the places have local drafts, food, and other specials. Plus, most of these places have other special nights, like Mexiville hosting salsa dancing or Drag Bingo at The Honest Pint.
