    The Station 4 trivia Thinkin’ & Drinkin’ Trivia is on Mondays at 8pm (Not Sunday at 9) whenever there’s not a concert, and it’s hosted by CRACKERS (who is employed by Station 4 and provides his own trivia rounds, and not associated with Loose Gravel).

    Great work on the list. There are a ton of lists that never seem all that comprehensive. Some of the free bar rags usually publish about one a year and make note of just a fraction of what’s actually going on. This is, hands down, the best list I’ve ever seen compiled. Keep up the great work and long live bar trivia in the Twin Cities.

    Hi Jenni,

    Great list(s)!!!

    Have you tried Team Trivia? We have games all around the Twin Cities, many that have been happening for over 3 years – and over 1000 games in 22 states!

    Ole Piper in Blaine now has *official* Team Trivia on Mondays at 7:30 (your list says otherwise). Please see our full schedule at

    Top three teams win prizes at every game, and teams can join our free league and get credit at every MN game they play to qualify for our 4x per year tournaments – 3 are just for MN teams and 1 is our national tourney where 1st place wins $10,000!

    I hope to see you at one of our games soon – and please let me know if you ever have any input/comments/questions/suggestions.

      Hi Matt! I have not been to Team Trivia, but that’s an impressive list of events. I’ll go through them and update my listings. Hopefully we can make it soon!

    A couple of our games have petered away, but we have added several great new places lately all around the Twin Cities.

    See the updated list at:

    Thanks for playing!

    Oops… one more update:

    Ole Piper Inn in Blaine had a fire and is closed until they get it rebuilt – but we (Team Trivia) expect to return there on Mondays as soon as they reopen.

    You have them listed as having a different trivia company.

      Hi Matt!

      I finally got around to updating, and I added your events based on the January calendar. Let me know if you have updates in the future.

    My name is Angelo Ierace and I am a casting associate with the trivia show “The Chase” on GSN. We are going to be holding a casting in Minneapolis on Sat. July 20th and I was wondering if there was any way you could spread word within your trivia-loving community! Once you say it is okay, I can send you all of the information! I don’t want to spam your website if you don’t want it!
