|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until November 16, 2023

The Pond has hosted Thursday Trivia Challenge for about 15 years now, resulting in a database of thousands of questions. We try to keep our Trivia fresh, fun and a bit irreverent. The game begins at 7pm; we encourage teams to come in early for dinner and our HALF PRICE WINE by the bottle special from 5pm to 9pm.
