Bedrock Billiards is one of Adams Morgan’s true neighborhood bars, and its long-running trivia night is just as community-focused. Every week, a pair of regulars is responsible for writing five rounds of 10 questions each, reading them to the crowd and scoring the answers.
As you might expect, it’s unpredictable, which keeps teams coming back. One week’s highlight could be a handout picture round in which teams have to identify college sports mascots; another visit may find an audio round of classic film themes. Or you may just get themed rounds on the periodic table, vice presidents or D.C. history.
The prize: $50 off the winning team’s bar tab, to be used that night.
