Other than just going to a bar and socializing while drinking with friends, there are games to play to pass the time such as pool, darts or activities such as karaoke night and trivia night. It’s usually computerized and covers a wide variety of categories where people can have fun and cheer each other on whether they are a trivia geek or a lucky novice. Similar to when people step up to the microphone to sing karaoke, trivia bonds guests and breaks the ice as they have fun trying to think while drinking delicious craft beers.
