Best of Boston

2008 Best Trivia Night

The Druid

Unshackled from Stump! Trivia, the plodding generic format that dominates Hub bars, the Druid’s game starts every Wednesday at 8 p.m. and moves at a brisk clip. The host is engaging, the beer plentiful, and the food both Irish and good. Everyone present is dialed into the Q&A action, as well they should be—to the winner goes cold, hard cash. Even better, the last-place team (yeah, that was us) is treated to free shots at the end. The pub is on the small side, though, so get there early for a prime seat.
