Hey! I’m Lucie, your News Editor here at Greenpointers. I’ve teamed up with Paige Lipari over at Archestratus Books and Foods (160 Huron Street) to offer a monthly Trivia Night! We’ve had a blast since we started two months ago! Paige is in charge of the glorious food and beer that you can WIN, and I’m Quizmaster!
Our next game is Next Wednesday, 10/18. There will be three rounds + a lightning round! Are you the Trivia Champ of Greenpoint? Come by with a team of up to 4, or swing by solo and claim your title, all are welcome!
Want to start playing right now? Find questions from previous games here!
The Black Rabbit Bar (91 Greenpoint Ave) is easily one of the most visually appealing bars in all of Brooklyn–a softly lit, atmospheric wood-paneled den with a narrow, rail car-style interior and a tranquil, leafy backyard. A portrait of the tavern’s namesake, the Rabbit himself (the owner’s Irish grandfather), hangs in a prominent position on the wall. Perhaps the most distinctive feature is the private booths with swinging, hinged double doors, evoking the entrance of a “Wild West” era saloon. This is perhaps a misleading comparison, as bartender and owner Kent Lanier claims there has never been a fight on the premises (something he partly attributes to the purposeful lack of Red Bull or Jagermeister in the pub).
