Sure, most pubs like to host trivia at the start of the week, but not this little guy. One of our favourite places to work those neurons on a Thursday night is found in Redfern.
Woolpack Hotel, Thursdays at 7.30pm.
If you’ve accidentally found yourself at this undervalued Redfern pub on a Thursday then you’re in for a treat, because their trivia game is strong. Also, every other table around you came here with the express purpose of answering some general interest questions and brainstorming homonyms.
What can you win? Winners walk away with a $50 bar voucher, but there’s a hefty cash jackpot to be won as well – it was $400 on our visit.
What’s the crowd like? Triviality has a dedicated following that has built up over the years and the crowd reflects the transitional stage Redfern is in, with gentrified newcomers mixing with the older locals.
What’s for dinner? They don’t do a special for the night, but the chicken parmigiana is an envy-inducing feed, and the $25 rib eye on the bone is a juicy, tender, well- seasoned cut that keeps good company with a light, peppery sauce.
