Can anyone recommend a good trivia contest at a bar/restaurant in the East Bay? I know about Albatross in Berkeley on Sunday nights... are there any others worth considering?

        i've been to Pyramid about the same amount of times, the food is just decent. the only thing we get on a regular basis is the nachos and they don't even have it on the menu anymore, you have to just order it.

        how's the quiz at Pyramid? what time does it start? can you show up and try to join other teams?

              The Pyramid in Berkeley starts at 7:30 sharp on Tuesdays. Quiz is pretty good. 6 rounds from what I remember and its a point system. You answer the questions on sheets and you turn them in. I'm sure you could ask to join other's teams but that all depends on how receptive the team is to strangers.

          A really good place for pub grub,great beer on tap, hard liquor and very hard trivia will be at Beckett's of Berkeley on Tuesdays starting in September. They don't have the Pub Quiz until the Fall/Winter season when UC Berkeley is in full sesssion. The best part is they have cash prizes! Here's info with website link: Beckett's Irish Pub, 2271 Shattuck Ave. Berkeley, CA 94704 510.647.1790 beckettsirishpub.com

            The food at Beckett's is good, much better than your usual pub grub.
