My favorite trivia spots in NYC are TriviaTryst on Wednesdays either at Stone Creel (27th & Lex) at 8pm or Boss Tweeds (Essex & Rivington) at 6:30pm. Free to play and you can win $50 off your bar tab. Questions are general knowledge (sports, music, movies, pop culture, history, food & bev, geography, business, tech, etc.) with Name That Tune rounds, which are great.
