  • Gather your lucky tchotchkes, trivia is back in St. Louis.

St. Louis won’t feel fully like St. Louis again until we’re all sharing bites of Ted Drewes before sweating side-by-side at a Cardinals game, then heading to a trivia night followed by a late night dip into the east side.

The good news is that we’re well on our way to the St. Louis dream day. Not only is Busch Stadium planning to be open to full capacity next month, but there are other signs of life out there, too. Concerts are being announced, the Muny is back this summer and there are plenty of trivia nights to look forward to now, too.

Trivia nights are as St. Louis as Provel cheese, but they couldn’t happen during the time before vaccines — back when sharing snacks and sticking your dirty hand in a shared bowl of chips was forbidden. Now that people have received those sweet, sweet doses, tables full of shared snacks are back. Amen.

Fun trivia nights are starting to be announced for the upcoming months and some of them even benefit important organizations in town. There are also weekly trivia nights being held now and some of them are even designed in a socially distant manner to help keep you safe.

Here’s a small sample for if you have a trivia itch that you need to scratch:
