The best way to make it through a challenging workweek is to fill your hump day evening with an activity that forces you to get out of your house and take your mind off of the stress of the office. While yoga classes or happy hour can provide a nice Wednesday night cure, you may find that trivia night at Room 389 is the best medicine. The Grand Avenue bar by Lake Merritt hosts a weekly trivia night that offers a perfect balance of casual and competitive. By the 7:30 p.m. start-time, the bar is usually jam-packed with trivia-hungry groups downing cheap pitchers of beer. Incentivized by the potential reward of free drinks, the groups can take the trivia pretty seriously — but it's not so intense that it's no longer fun. The trivia night is a great option for large groups or pairs that want to team up with strangers. You can even show up on your own and find a team to join — it's that kind of friendly crowd.
