IF YOU’VE EVER FANTASIZED about being on a game
show or called out the answers to NPR’s Wait Wait…
Don’t Tell Me! program, you might be the next contestant
at trivia night at Urban Winery in Silver Spring.
Many trivia contests are hosted at pubs and sports
bars, but Urban Winery’s free trivia night on Wednesdays
is a good ;t for those who prefer syrah and ;aming hal-loumi cheese to pints and wings (although a solid local
beer list is available).
Arrive with a team of up to six players—or be a solo
“team”—and place your drink and food orders (the Medi-
terranean small plates and charcuterie are good choices).
The tables in the small tasting room ;ll up early for the
high-energy games, which start promptly at 7 p.m. Trivia
questions range from Shakespeare to sports, and music
to movies. The competition is intense and fast-paced, so
don’t plan to gab with teammates until trivia night ends
at 9. (The winery stays open until 10.) Prizes include
drinks and gift cards for the winery.
Trivia night at Urban Winery is on Wednesdays from 7 to
9 p.m. 949 Bonifant St., Silver Spring; 301-585-4100;
