Review: Commonwealth Trivia Night = Opposite of Bad

That's right! Commonwealth's new trivia night is GOOD!

The Heights Life went to check out The Quizmaster of Georgia Avenue's second installment of trivia night at Commonwealth Gastropub. As Looking Glass trivia loyalists know, host Dalton has the question and answer schtick down. But... he's added some new twists in what he's dubbed his "trivia lab" for Commonwealth.

You can expect the usual five rounds including a handout and an audio round - but to mix it up there are some rewards for speed and accuracy. And who knows - that might not be all he's got planned. This time those rounds seemed to go over particularly well, especially at my hyper-competitive table.

The crowd was light but I wouldn't expect it to stay that way for long. Trivia takes place in a cozy corner of the bar starting circa 7PM and the prizes are really damn good. And you know what else was good? The Commonwealth food and drink service in the bar area. Yes, the drinks cost more than Wonderland Mondays - but the beer selection keeps it interesting.

Trivia currently remains an every other week affair. If you think you're smart, mark your calendar for two weeks from yesterday and come challenge us. THL will own you (maybe...).

I would play there except that Commonwealth is overpriced and underwhelming.
