The bar manager at the Blackthorn Tavern keeps the Inner Sunset watering hole hopping each Monday at 9 p.m. with trivia night. The bar, located at 834 Irving St., keeps it low-tech with a host calling out questions and contestants writing answers in a book.
How many people participate? We have about 15 to 20 teams with anywhere from three to 10 people per team. So we have a good 50 to 60 people.
Any strange questions or team names? You should hear some of the team names. We had one called bin Laden Double Tap.
Does the format make it better? I think it’s even more popular than the generic game onscreen. It’s a better product that way.
Any category where people are stumped? He gets some really good [obscure] music groups that people don’t know.
