Event Details

Please note: tickets are required to attend this event.

Register for Trivia Night

Create a team of unlimited participants and join in on the fun! All ages are welcome, but questions will be geared towards adults. It's okay to have team members who don't live in the same house as you, just make sure you have some way of communicating with them to privately discuss your answers. The Zoom link will be communicated 24 hours in advance of the event. We will open the “waiting room” doors at 6:50 pm so people can be ready for a 7:00 pm start. You will need TWO DEVICES in order to enjoy the optimal experience - a computer (to join the Zoom meeting) and a smart phone or tablet (to play the game); however, each team will use ONLY ONE smart phone or tablet to enter the game and submit the answers. Although it’s not mandatory, the Trivia Brothers suggest joining the meeting with video on so they can interact with you. Then, once the event officially starts, the Trivia Brothers will tell you how to register (using your smart phone or tablet) so you can play. Don’t worry, there is no special app to play, simply a website THAT WILL BE ANNOUNCED ONCE YOU ARE IN THE EVENT. Again, it’s ONE phone/tablet per team during gameplay.

Story

The Kingston Public Library Foundation is excited to have you join us for another Summer trivia event, this time hosted by The Trivia Brothers!

As always, the money raised at this event will go towards supporting programming and services at the Kingston Public Library.  You may have heard the KPL staff has been drastically reduced; this is an incredible loss to the Library and our Town.  This is why the supporting efforts of the KPLF, such as the recent painting and carpeting of the Children's Room, continues to be crucial when filling in budget gaps.

We are sad that Covid-19 has resulted in our Trivia Night being virtual, but there is always a silver lining and for this event that silver lining is literary-themed cocktails!  What better way to get your mind thinking about random history or pop culture questions than with a drink.  We obviously are not able to provide the supplies for these potent potables (as Alex Trebek would call them), but we encourage you to enjoy any of the below responsibly:

One Flew Over the Cosmo's Nest

1 1/2 ounces vodka

1 ounce cranberry juice

1/2 ounce triple sec

1/2 ounce lime juice

Combine the ingredients with ice in a shaker. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktailglass.

Rye and Prejudice

3 ounces grapefruit juice

1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey

Pour the ingredients over ice in a rocks glass and stir.

Love in the Time of Kahlua

1 ounce light rum

1/2 ounce coffee liqueur (like Kahlua)

2 ounces light cream

Ground cinnamon or nutmeg, to taste

Combine the rum and coffee liqueur over ice in a rocks glass. Pour the cream on top and sprinkle a little spice.

Bridget Jones's Daiquiri

1/2 cup large, fresh strawberries (about 4), washed and greens removed

1 1/2 ounces Champagne

1/2 ounce lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

Combine all ingredients in a blender with a handful of ice.

Tequila Mockingbird

1 1/2 ounces tequila

2 drops hot sauce

1 dill pickle

Pour the tequila into a shot glass, add the hot sauce, and drink. Chase with a bite of pickle.

Are You There God? It's Me, Margarita

Coarse salt, for cocktail rim

1 1/2 ounces tequila

1 ounce lime juice

1/2 ounce triple sec

1 lime wedge, for garnish (optional)

Rim a glass in coarse salt and set aside. Put all other ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain over fresh ice into the salted glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Moby-Drink

1 ounce vodka

1/2 ounce Blue Curacao

1 (12-ounce) can lemon-lime soda
