Graduate Hospital? Southwest Center City? Whatever you call the neighborhood south of Rittenhouse and north of Point Breeze, Billy Penn brought our monthly trivia night to one of its coolest bars in September: The Sidecar Bar & Grille.
Now led by the folks behind cult-favorite Mike’s BBQ and their partners, Sidecar hosted us and a full house of more than 60 people for a fun night filled with questions about all things Philadelphia.
After three rounds of trivia focusing on Philly in the past, present, and future, co-hosts Danya Henninger and Sakeenah Benjamin checked the answers and came up with some winners.
Growlers full of beer for having the best team names were awarded to three groups: Eagles fans “Came and Wentz,” neighborhood denizens “More Like ‘Rad Hospital,” and musically inclined jokers “Mayor Kenney and the Bloopers,” who provided a whole track listing for their potential album.
When it came to correct answers, the stakes were higher. A team going by “Sakeenah Fan Club” ? came in second, walking away with a $50 gift card to Sidecar. The grand prize of $100 gift card went to team “Jedi Masters,” who got 19/24 questions right.
Now it’s your turn. Without using Google, can you beat the high score?
