The Brazen Hen, 4 Canal St., Westerly, RI

Come to The Brazen Hen in Westerly Tuesdays at 8 to play the region's favorite trivia game, TriviAcademy!

A recent review by www.the-e-list.com:
“TriviAcademy and their team of hosts bring light-hearted fun and nostalgia to their trivia games held weekly at some of your favorite shoreline bars. … Categories range the gamut from music, movies, and television to literature, geometry, and science and span in difficulty from grade school to college. Place your wagers, take the mid-term, try the bonus, and make sure to stay for the extra credit. Win or lose, you will love it. If you are a know-it-all when it comes to how many time zones are in Canada, the formula for a cylinder, or what is the devil’s only friend in Don McLean’s classic song American Pie, then this is right up your alley."
