Some Fun Trivia For You

Publish date:

I just discovered trivia nights in Cincinnati recently and am hooked. I go whenever I can talk my wife into going, and it's a lot of fun. For anyone out there who enjoys trivia as much as me, I've decided to post questions from time to time for you to enjoy. The answers are in the comments section. Click on comments when you are ready to know. (There is no contest nor prize. This is just for kicks.)
