Trivia Under the Stars


Editorial Review

The District has fallen hard for the pool party. We've had parties with DJs, parties with live bands and cookouts with celebrity chefs. And this week, it's a pool party with trivia.

This is the second year of Trivia Under the Stars, a poolside game sponsored by Sixth and the City, the young professionals group of the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. Expect the usual mix of questions about geography, politics and pop culture, but be warned: There are rounds that take advantage of the location by requiring some team members to get in the extra-large pool. (One more clue if you're wondering what to bone up on: There will be a "Name That Tune" round featuring hits of the past decade.)

Each team should have five to seven people, and organizers will partner anyone who arrives solo or with one or two friends. Prizes include concert tickets and restaurant gift certificates. Doors will open about 6:15 p.m. and guests will have about an hour to swim or hit the buffet-style dinner for subs (meat or veggie) and chicken wings before the games get underway.
