A trivial pursuit

Where can my co-workers and I go for a bar trivia outing in NYC?

We're open to anywhere in Manhattan, but something below 42nd would be preferred. Also, since the plan is to do it after work, M-F after 6pm is best.
However, if you know of any others at odd times feel free to shout them out, cause I'm sure somebody would want to know about them.

Big Quiz Thing

A second for the Big Quiz thing. I had a team with some friends and we went religiously for about 6 months last year. It's a really good mix of questions, and it's over by 10pm.

Drunken Smartass Olympics happens on Wednesdays at Dempsey's Pub (on 2nd b/w 3rd & 4th) is hosted (I believe, may be false) by the one and only chicobangs (and a partner).

Response by poster: Yea, we were planning on going to The Baggot Inn (which I guess is the same as Dempseys in some way) but last week was the last one till September there.

I've been to Pete's Candy Store's Quiz Night [mentioned above]. It's in Williamsburg (Take the L-train to Lorimer) and it's right on Lorimer. Wednesday nights. It was a hilarious time although our team of 6 only knew 20% of the answers.

People are too smart.

I was going to say Dempseys. I had a wonderful time the time I went. They also have a buy one get one drink special before 7.

Oh how I wish Philadelphia style Quizzo might be in NYC....Does anyone know if that format exists in the city?
