Every Thursday (8-10pm) – Trivia Night at Sharkey’s Tavern – Get your team together for trivia night presented by Trivia Factory every Thursday. There will be food and drink specials and prizes will be announced. The Factory Formula, or format, is simple: 24 questions on a variety of topics as well as a visual handout round is played in under two hours. The final round is a four-question bonus round in which teams can wager as many points as they dare in a chance to come back from behind. While most trivia nights play a song between each question as filler, The Trivia Factory awards a point for the correct artist and the song serves as a hint for each question. Come join the fun at Sharkey’s Tavern, 504 Rosenberg (25th), Downtown Galveston.
