Time to Volunteer: Geeks Who Drink gears up for Hunger Games

Reaping Day is upon us and it's time to test your odds in the arena. Tomorrow (Thursday, Nov. 20), Geeks Who Drink holds their first-ever Hunger Games-themed pub quiz at O'Niell's in Nob Hill (4310 Central SE), so dress in your Capitol best and be prepared to give the sponsors and spectators a good show.

As Tributes, you are encouraged to gather allies (six-person team max) and train hard for the challenges to come. Topics from both the books and the films are fair game, though some Mockingjay trivia may be omitted to prevent spoiling the upcoming movie premiere. Victorious Tributes will be rewarded with not only fame and bragging rights but also the grand cash prize that could total in the hundreds of dollars. This is a “winner take all” event—so just like in the arena, second place gets nothing.

The Games start promptly at 9pm, but admission is on a first come, first served basis, so show up as early as possible with “eyes bright, chins up, smiles on” and a $5 admission fee for each player. “We salute your courage and your sacrifice and we wish you Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.” O'Niell's Pub, Nob Hill • Thu Nov 20 • 9pm • $5 • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar
