Our sponsors @ Shanrocks:
I am Trivia Jock ShanRock, and my team and I create and host fun and unique pub quizzes in beautiful Portland, Oregon. It’s free to play, and the team victorious walks away with cash or prizes . . . and perhaps more importantly, glory! Have you tried the rest? Now try the best!
Willamette Week’s Best of Portland 2007, and the Portland Mercury’s Best Trivia Night that is! Also, I am thrilled to have been selected Best Entertainer In North Portland, Town’s Terrific-est TJ, and most recently, my La Merde Triviology was awarded the Portland Monthly title of Best Bar To Play!
About the Pub Quizzery
Triviology pub quizzes are free to play, last a couple of hours, and are composed of seven short rounds, giving teams instant gratification for their efforts. Team size can range from one – five players, with prizes for everyone on the winning team. Questions are thoroughly researched and cover a wide variety of topics. Here’s my standard format (play the sample quiz here!)
Quizzes from ShanRock’s Triviology: fun & free, with prizes!
- Mondays @ 9:00
4111 SE Hawthorne
*Their happy hour starts at trivia time, and includes $3 wells and a $4 food menu of “exceptional pub grub” including poutine, people! Naturally, being a hophouse, they have a spectacular array of craft beers, too. This venue offers growlers & gift certificates for the TWO highest scoring teams!
- Mondays @ 9:00
8307 N. Ivanhoe
*Come on down to quizzery in St. Johns! And come hungry, for the amazing Asian fusion fare is not to be missed. The team who wins the first night of trivia at a new venue gets bragging rights 4EVAAAAAAH!
- Mondays @ 8:00
15th Avenue Hophouse
1517 NE Brazee
*This brand new sister venue to Hawthorne Hophouse promises to be just as much trivial fun as the first one. Come snag the first win – mark your territory!
- Tuesdays @ 7:00
2338 NE Alberta Street
*I am so excited to finally have a Triviology venue on Alberta! This brand new bar is already receiving glowing praises in the press – Portland Mercury featured them in a recent issue. I must confess I have been spending many late night hours at the Cruzroom, eating their scrumptiously unique tacos and drinking their home-made, fruit-infused tequila and vodka ¬Â¦ y’know, doing research!
- Tuesdays @ 8:00
Speakeasy @ 609 SE Taylor Ave.
*Sneak on down to The Speakeasy for quizzery with Paul! He rocks the Triviology, and awards $30 in bar cash to the victorious team. Kids, that buys you a lot of booze & grub at this rad little bar! Come for the trivia, stay for the shuffleboard!
- Tuesdays @ 7:30
4901 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
Compete for cash, only at Sewickly’s! In addition to prizes, the good people at this venue put up a buck for each brain that plays the pub quiz, and the victorious team wins the whole pot! And that’s not all . . . the champions also get to choose the drink special for the following Tuesday.
- Wednesdays @ 8:00
Schmizza Pub & Grub
628 NE Broadway
One planet, one people, one pizza . . . one pub quiz! Join us for the launch of trivia over slices and beers on December 12, 2012! For more info, check out their website. In addition to prizes for the champs (gift certificates to the bar), I will be handing out passes and T-shirts for the new Judd Apatow movie: “This Is 40.”
- Thursdays @ 7:00
Bare Bones @ 2900 SE Belmont
*Great food and a killer jukebox are extra perks at this fun new venue!
- Sundays @ 6:00
East Burn @ 1800 E. Burnside
After years of ShanRock’s thematic “lunar quizzes,” the people have insisted that once a month ain’t enough! Therefore, she has bowed to the will of the people: every Sunday at East Burn will now be a night of Weekly Geekery, in which you will be called upon to answer questions about beloved movies, books, TV shows that you have been looking for an excuse to revisit for the hundredth time. Every night will have a ‘theme’ so be sure to study!
