Upcoming fun event: Trivia Night!

May 10, 2010 —

There’s a super cool first-time event in Des Moines called Dog-Eat-Dog Trivia Night happening May 20 at People’s downtown.

(full & complete disclaimer: I’m on the board of The Pet Project Midwest, the charity putting it on. But I’d totally blog about it even if I weren’t cuz it’s going to be fun & it’s a cheap night of entertainment!)

Teams of 8 will go through 8 rounds of trivia ranging from geography to history, music or movies. The top 3 winning teams take home cool prizes. It’s only $20 a person to play and that covers your dinner & a post-game concert!

There’ll be a raffle drawing going on through the night and tables of info about lots of local charities. The night kicks off at 5:30 with a social hour & the game starts at 6:30. The event is a fundraiser for The Pet Project but it’s also designed to build community and get people out for a fun night! You can gather 7 friends and sign up as one team or you can sign up as an individual and be placed on a team. Either way, you should register here!

See what the great “Des Moines Is Not Boring” blog said about this event May 4.

Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
