Opening Night at Company Brewing

I imagine Nick woke up early today, took in a deep breath of that fine Milwaukee air, tossed Damn and the turntable, and said, “I think this is a great day to start Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Company Brewing.”

Later, when he’s on the bus, he’ll be telling complete strangers, “If you’re really into trivial facts, and you look like someone who might be, you should come play trivia tonight. We’re starting up at our new venue, Company Brewing. It’s going to be great.”

Then, he’ll arrive at his office and pay his co-worker who gave tonight’s show a write-up, and, I assume, awarded it 18 stars or whatever the top ranking is over there. But he paid in trivia bucks, because these are new media masters and the concept of government-backed money seems primitive and unsustainable to them.

At some point Nick will run into one of the players from Tits & Giggles. They’ll ask if there are any clues for tonight’s show. He’ll say yes and promise to text hints to them soon. Fifteen seconds later, the phones of every Tits & Giggles player will buzz, and simultaneously they all receive a .gif, or .gif however you pronounce it it fine (but know that if you say .gif, you’re a caveman). It’s a young Mary Kate or Ashley Olsen shrugging, it reads “No soup or clues for you” and then “Did I do that?”

I have to admit, I don’t know if Nick doesn’t know how memes work, or I just haven’t leveled up yet. This is very similar to how I felt about The People vs OJ Simpson.

Whatever, Tits & Giggles wanted clues and Nick wouldn’t give them any. But me, being not an assbag, I will suggest they look into Monty Python characters, the work of James Earl Jones, and something about Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

Tonight he’ll slide over to Company Brewing, at 735 E. Center Street, in Riverwest. Maybe he’ll have a Platinum Apium, a celery goze with 5.2% ABV. Or perhaps it will be the Zagora Major, a Belgian Tripel, with a crushing 9.1% ABV, that keeps the trivia show well lubricated. I know if it was me, I’d be using that Poor Farm Pils to kick back on a warm spring night like tonight.

Regardless, you can have any of these, all of these, or anything else they have on the drink list. You can even have some food. Food is good, right? All you have to do is show up, I would suggest having a team with you, and be ready to have fun. The show starts at 7pm.
