Battle of the Brains 2017: A Pub Quiz in Support of SPD

May 8, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm UTC+0


Monday, 8th May, 2017
Doors at 6:30
Event at 7

*Will you and your friends win bragging rights to become the BRAINIEST GANG IN THE BAY AREA*

*Can you dethrone last year’s champions – Alan Bernheimer’s team, the BFFs of Small Press Distribution?*

*Are you looking forward to more brain-bending questions such as the 2016 classic, “What is a LEMNISCATE?” (clue: it is not a lemon riding a skateboard)*


Join us at this classic pub quiz, featuring teams of up to 8 at each table, working together to answer trivia questions (some of them literary, some not).

Who can sport the nerdiest glasses? Who will be quickest to turn in their answer sheet? Who will snag all the pitchers of beer (we’re looking at you, booksellers)? I can’t wait to find out what 2017’s Battle will bring. Can you?

HOW IT WORKS: Each team captain gathers 8 people for your team. Each team will need to raise $500 prior to the event to get in. Of course, each team member could just put in $65 or so, but to lower that cost you can crowdsource donations for each team by creating a team page at our ~Crowdrise~.

Come for canapes, drinks, lots of friendly competition. Stay for prizes – one for the team that raises the most money and, of course, one for the winner of the pub quiz itself!
