Event Pick: Play some trivia and help out the staff of Charles Village Pub

The inside of Charles Village Pub.

Trivia nights are a dime a dozen, but it’s still fun to reach back for a random factoid or obscure piece of knowledge. Tonight, you can utilize your memory bank of useless things for a good cause at Peabody Heights Brewery, where proceeds from tonight’s trivia night will benefit the staff of Charles Village Pub. The popular bar was recently closed due to a grease fire, and many staff members are currently without work.
