The People: The crowd at Tavern Trivia is an eclectic bunch featuring barflys, regulars and trivia fanatics. There is no rhyme or reason to the types of people or their ages.

What we loved: The trivia night at 16th Street Sports Bar and Grill has been picking Phoenix's mind for over seven years. The friday night event has a friendly atmosphere, a good amount of regulars and plenty of warm rapport. The whiskey deals are also quite the bargain.

What we didn't love: The amount of time given to answer questions, between 3 to 5 minutes, was way too long. This might have been an acceptable amount of time in the pre-smart phone era, but these days it makes the game a bit of a children's edition.
Are we going back? For the drinks, yes. For the trivia, maybe not.
