Booze and brain teasers at the American Museum of Natural History

By Nicholas McNallen

Is your local bar trivia night not sufficiently stimulating for you? Is there not enough marine-life at your go-to pub? We've got a solution to your trivia woes: On November 13th, The American Museum of Natural History will host Shelf Life, a trivia night in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life.  A $20 ticket gets you a spot under the big blue whale to compete in quiz rounds (plus a free drink, a popcorn bar, and sliders).  

Teams of up to six people (ages 21 and up) can duke it out in a school-or-be-schooled competition, hosted by Adam Kesner of Trivial Dispute.  Get your geek on for questions that will run a gamut of nerdy topics, including science and pop culture alike. Afterwards, the true brainiacs—museum scientists and collection managers—will offer presentations to further inflate your infundibulum.  Attendees will also be privy to the premiere of the museum's new series of monthly videos, Shelf Life, which examines the 33 million specimens the museum has accumulated since its inception in 1869.

Doors open at 6:30, the event starts at 7; enter at 77th Street. Knowledge is power. Trivia is fun. And your first drink is free!
