Trina’s Starlite Lounge
Every Wednesday is Stump Trivia Night, with teams filling in the booths in front to compete in a general knowledge–style quiz format. Teams wager points to play to their strengths, with the top prize being a free appetizer (we’d suggest the Starlite Wings) and a $25 gift card. When you’re done, round out the night with something from their terrific cocktail list and some old-school pinball in the back.

Themed trivia nights every Monday, with topics ranging from musical theatre to New Girl—not to mention more than 750 board games at your fingertips—will cause even the biggest cell phone addict to set their screen aside for a while.
