Waterfront Brewery’s owners talk trivia!

Posted: April 19, 2021

In a follow-up to our introduction to Waterfront Brewery, in Key West, we spoke with owners George and Gwen Esbensen about bringing on trivia just over a year earlier.

Despite challenges with Covid, the brewery’s trivia night has thrived, in part due to the support of the owners…not only do they provide trivia prizes and have great drink specials (along with Deep Eddy’s sponsorship), they play every week! When in Key West, plan your Wednesday night around Catch The Mania’s pub quiz!

Trivia at Waterfront Brewery in Key West!

In a virtual pub quiz blackout across the country, Waterfront Brewery in Key West is filling the seats with mask-wearing locals and tourists! Arming the night with great prizes from the brewery, and some help from Deep Eddy vodka (which, by the way, both have libations on special for almost giveaway prices during trivia).

Get your table early in the sizable game room, with seats surrounded by classic entertainment like Space Invaders and foosball, and get ready to answer tons of trivia questions in an effort to gather all the prizes you can. If you’re on top after the last question of the night, you might be smart enough to win a gift card to the brewery, and potentially a 4-pack of their canned beer!

Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change – Confucius

Catch The Mania’s “30 In 30” Online Trivia

Well, change has been thrust upon us, whether we wanted to be wise or not…and, as insightful as Confucius may have been, Billy Crystal’s “change is such hard work” is easier to relate to.

So, with that, the crew here at Catch The Mania has made some changes…we could either wait out the uncertain future by continuing business as usual, or move forward on what we do best: provide much-needed entertainment for these trying times. The small spark of an idea, providing 30 minutes of trivia folks can play at home, has grown a bit. In our first three weeks of “30 In 30“, we’ve included guest hosts Phil Wills (Bar Specialist, appearing on Bar Rescue), Johnny Trutor (Jeopardy champion), Amber LeMay (Vermont’s favorite Drag Queen), as well as several other guest hosts to lighten the load of the day, and give a needed diversion.

Join us, Monday and Wednesday nights for the foreseeable future, to enjoy some family fun, or “call” in your friends (FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Houseparty) to play some trivia. We’ll also have some pop-up theme nights, so check back with our Facebook page often!

Sugarloaf Lodge Tiki Bar Revisited

Posted: February 17, 2020

A small but popular tiki bar, nestled in Sugarloaf Key, Florida, hides about 17 miles from Key West on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. Providing needed “hydration” for area fishermen, locals, and visiting tourists, the Tiki Bar has built a Tuesday night trivia tradition since 2011. Check out the video testimonials from Katchen Duncan, first from 2012, and later in the video, an update from 2020. Another example of how Catch The Mania trivia can help your business for years!

Jill Magazine Online Overviews the Components of a Great Trivia Night at Geoffry’s Pub

Posted: October 5, 2009

“Most sessions include an audio round, predominantly “Name that Song,” but sometimes consisting of snippets of speeches or sound bites from TV shows. This portion also sticks to a theme, such as “famous guitar riffs,” or on a recent night, guessing from song clips played backwards. Movie clips and picture-based rounds add to the multimedia approach.

Emcee Jeremy Asarese uses Power Point and media players to broadcast the questions, answers, images and movie clips through various television screens scattered throughout the bar and restaurant and even outside, in nicer weather. His wife, Becca Asarese, helps out behind the scenes, tallying score cards.”
