What's the easiest and best way to register as a team?

You can register as a team of 2 people or 4 people (we may have to combine 2 teams of 2 to make one 4-person team). Select a team captain and have them in charge of registering ALL team members. For example, if Jem, Zack, Tony and Angela are a team and Jem gets put in charge, she will then reserve tickets for herself, Zack, Tony and Angela = 4 in total. PLEASE and thank ya! If you want to register your team name and numbers, please email your team captain’s name and your team name to trivianightyyc@gmail.com This also helps to make the necessary seating arrangements.

Can I register as an individual?

Yes. But you may be put onto a team. (Don't worry, it's all friendly competition and a chance to meet some other great pop culture fanatics!)

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, 18 and up.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is parking available on 33 ave or on surrounding side streets that is free after 6 pm. This area is also easily accessible through public transportation as well.

What can I bring into the event?

Bring your nostalgic brain, game face and friendly competitive spirit. And remember to bring your '80s-themed costume(s) (optional) as there will be prizes given for best team and best individual costumes.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email your questions, comments and team names to trivianightyyc@gmail.com

What's the refund policy?

Your ticket is non-refundable, but it may be transferred to an upcoming Shake Trivia or Game Night of similar ticket value. Please email trivianightyyc@gmail.com with a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to the event for transfer eligibility.
