Here are places you can marry your loves for drinking and being nerdy
Nerds tend to gravitate toward other nerds because it's okay to talk about things like Star Wars, city referendums and why Apple products are superior to anything that is not an Apple product. Social drinkers tend to like hanging out with other social drinkers so that everyone's jokes seem funnier and it feels OK to eat enough nachos to serve a small family or do things like jump in public fountains. Much like peanut butter and jelly or Wes Anderson movies and white people, when combined these two traits form a harmonious swirl of glee and whimsy.There are myriad watering holes around Cincinnati with trivia nights featuring prizes and all sorts of food and drink specials and cash prizes for winning teams. Here are a bunch organized by day.

Now, at long last, my two great loves (local music and trivia) come together in CityBeat's first "Great Cincinnati Music Trivia Challenge." The goal is to have some fun and hopefully point out interesting facets of our city's rich musical history -- because CityBeat is cheerleader No. 1 for Cincinnati's music community.
