Do you know stuff about things?

If you think you do, come show off your skills at Geeks Who Drink supporting National Sex Assault Awareness Month Wednesday night at Paddy’s. There is a cash prize for the winner.

Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that hosts pub quizzes at over 100 pubs and restaurants in 13 states. Their quiz is a collective effort of dozens of quizmasters, writers, fact-checkers, graphic designers and artists.

“It’s a great opportunity for the community to come together, play some trivia, have some drinks and a good time, all the while raising funds and awareness for National Sex Assault Awareness Month,” said Casey Wolfington of the Bright Future Foundation. “We want to thank Geeks Who Drink for their contribution, and we’re looking forward to testing our geek skills at the party.”

Paddy’s is offering $3.50 New Belgium beers to sweeten the deal.

The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions each, played by teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster and teams write down the answers, turning them in at the end of each round.

Rounds One, Four and Six are themed rounds – anything from “Eight Questions About Sex That Won’t Make You Too Uncomfortable” to “TV Shows Your Parents Watch.”

Round Two is music-themed worth double points: name the artist and title for each song clip. Round Three is a multiple choice (or a speed round.) Round Five is a visual-based on a printed handout. The all-audio Round Seven usually covers movies or TV shows, and is worth the standard eight points. Finally, Round Eight is always 16 points on random knowledge.

All proceeds from the event benefit Bright Future Foundation, which offers services and support for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Eagle County.

April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year’s national theme focuses on engaging the entire community in the response to and prevention of sexual violence.

During the month of April, organizations across Colorado and the nation will join together to promote greater public awareness, demonstrate a commitment to ending sexual assault and support to the numerous survivors in our communities. It is also an opportunity to educate the public on the seriousness of sexual violence, the prevalence of this crime, and effective prevention programs.

But tonight’s trivia party is basically about having fun.
