It’s Up & Under Time: Week 27

True to form, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia keeps rolling! Since it’s Tuesday, you can find us at Up & Under on Brady Street. That also means at the helm tonight you’ll find your boy Lewis, the man who recently set the record with 113 consecutive rides on the Summerfest Skyglider and when asked what he did when he needed to use …

Landlocked, and Loving It!

Holiday week is over, Trivia Players. I assume, you’re all very much like me and spent the week on the open sea. Pacing the bow, sucking down a little bit red wine from exotic ports as far away as Sonoma. Being it was my vacation the captain said to me, “What would make your time …

A New Dawn

Fresh off a national holiday, we’re set to fire up some trivia tonight. As it is every Thursday, Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood is home to Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. Yet, This week feels a little different. Maybe it’s because we’re sitting on 50 questions that are going to please about two percent of the players. …

What a week! Am I right? The Company Brewing crowd just went deep with a crowd-sourced show and the Up & Under players are taking the night off to hit up Summerfest and I assume see Kid Rock or Benchpresser, or like Ani Difranco. Meanwhile, I’m over here trying to scratch together 50 quezzies to …

If you’re like me, you’re settling back into normal life after spending a weekend doing category research in the swamped and wooded lands of northern …

Legend of the Brew Pen

In the parlance of our times, I think one could say, we are back on our bullshit over here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. It’s Monday, we’ve got a full rack of questions, and I would suspect there is already a bartender at Company Brewing warming up their tap hand. Who knows, by the time you …

Trivia was on a wild one last night. If you don’t believe me just check these stats. Laura Dern and High-Played Bass, a team that is no stranger to the top spot, only scraped together 36 points. While the peer-reviewed and accredited geniopedes on #1 Cat in America dropped a couple drink tickets and still …

Stranger Fruit Salad Days

Sure, the Glass Nickel summer league started last week, but I think this is the week it gets traction. Certainly the Spoony Bards are looking for a better showing. Rumor has it Laura Dern will be zipping-off the legs of their high-waisted paleobotanist pants, which means they mean business. Will TV Dogs show up? What …

International House of Ugh

Great news for everyone who ready for some trivia. We’re rolling on with summer league play at Company Brewing tonight. This is going to be the pick me up we all need after this International House of Burgers ordeal. When you come to Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia, you know you’re going to be in Wisconsin and …

Trivia as Literature

If American literature in the latter half of the last century has taught us one thing, it’s that we all have a role to fill. Regardless of our actions or our team names, our true selves will be revealed and by the end of the story will be right back to where we began. Sometimes …
