Port City to Host Obscure Alexandria Trivia Night

Know your Female Stranger? How much do you know about the buried ships in Old Town?

A new trivia night scheduled for this Wednesday (Feb. 19) at Port City Brewing Company (3950 Wheeler Avenue) will put your Alexandria knowledge to the test.

“Join us, along with our friends from the Office of Historic Alexandria, for a trip into the past as we uncover hidden wonders, forgotten events, scientific oddities, and all the wonderful history that makes Alexandria so special,” the brewery said in an event listing. “It is time for ALX Obscura Trivia!”

The tasting room is scheduled to open at 4 p.m. with trivia starting at 7 p.m. Tickets to the event are $10 per team, which includes one pint and a $3 donation to the Office of Historic Alexandria.

Teams are limited to no more than six players, with no smartphones or mobile devices allowed.

To prep for the trivia night, Port City recommended checking out the Lyceum, Black History Museum, Alexandria Archaeology Museum, and the Stabler Leadbeater Apothecary Museum in Old Town.
