Other Stuff To Do: Trivia Nights  |  Bowling Alleys  |  Funky Sports
Boston's newest fad has nothing to do with shoes, Teletubbies or aviator sunglasses. Instead of working the singles circuit at area hotspots, an increasing number of Hub-goers are using their brains in a different way: To win prizes. "Trivia Nights," usually sponsored by various local companies, are held at bars throughout Boston, and cost no money to play. All you need is a team of six, or under, and a cool team name. We suggest you stay away from monikers that involve Mr. Rogers, your grandmother, or the Yankees.
