 Why you should attend

Trivia Night at San Pedro Market is an event where family and friends can come together, grab some food and drinks and put your knowledge to the test.

Now that summer is around the corner, Trivia Night will begin its summer league. All you have to do is go onto the website, enter a team name and you’re all ready to play.

The league will last for 12 weeks and the first place winners will win $200, second place team will take $100 and third place will win $75.

“This event will be taking place in 40 other bars in California and those who make it to the Champions Grand Final will get to take home $500 and a Pub Genius trophy,” said Marina Barcelona, Trivia host.

Barcelona said there is another trivia league where 15 teams are drawn at random and will compete against each other for $300 in San Francisco.

If you attend, you want to get there early to snag seats because there’s an average of 16 to 30 teams.

The size of your trivia team is unlimited, allowing you to have as much brainpower as you want.

1) Each team will go through six rounds of trivia questions. The first round is general knowledge and current events and sthe econd round is mix and match. The third round is general knowledge and current events and the fourth round is where you have to guess who or what the picture is.
