Dan comes to the Yukon from the East Coast armed with knowledge of everything from the obvious to the obscure. He’s a long-time lover of trivia, having started hosting quiz games at bars every since his college days. Last Monday he posed questions that proved to me that I am still way too familiar with the lyrics to that 90s Spice Girl’s hit, “Wanna Be.”
Geeks Who Drink trivia questions come from HQ and range from easy-peasy, to the difficult, with side steps into the strange and absurd. Be warned because questions are sometime worded to trip you up, which makes it all the more rewarding when you get them all right.
I asked Dan about his favorite trivia topics and it seems his knowledge rests firmly in geography, sports, and movies and TV. The reason he loves leading us all down the darkened corridors of our own mind every week is because he loves interacting with the crowd. “The Yukon is a good community. It’s fun watching people work together to come up with the answer.”
“The Yukon is a good community.
It’s fun watching people work together to come up with the answer.”
Geeks Who Drink Quiz Master, Dan Howard, comes to the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland every Monday at 7pm (with the exception of holidays). Invite your friends to make a group of two or more and test your knowledge of all things trivial!
