Buzztime’s Smartest Bar Finals This Monday, August 26 at 8 CT
BACKSTORY: Who says smart people don’t go to bars? The regulars at The Village Inn in Skokie not only beg to differ, they’ll challenge you … to a game of Buzztime trivia, that is. That’s because the Skokie watering holes is one of North America’s Top Ten smartest bars and competes for the official title of Buzztime’s Smartest Bar this Monday.
To determine the
Smartest Bar, Buzztime, a leading
bar and restaurant entertainment platform, each year challenges its vast
network of thousands of bar and restaurant customers in the US and Canada to
compete head-to-head answering sports, art, history and pop culture bar trivia
questions. More than 3300 bars in North America have been competing
since April for the title and only 76 remain.
Monday’s final competition (a one hour final, in fact) to go, The Village Inn finds
itself in a great position: #9 overall. It will put its top five players’
average scores against the other finalists for the championship trophy, banner
and $500 cash for winning the title. The Mezzanine Lounge in Houston, TX, the
2-time defending champion, leads the field going into the final. But The
Village Inn is “in striking distance for the title,” says Buzztime.
WHEN: Monday, August 26, 8 pm CT – 9 pm

players, you need to be there Monday night as Teaser’s and The Village Inn stake
their North American claim as Buzztime’s Smartest Bar,” said Buzztime’s chief
