Much like that girl who just rolls her eyes at any of your advances, the hardest challenges in life are always the most rewarding. That's why Alex's Bar's legendary weekly trivia is consistently the best pub trivia in all the land. Oh, and the fact you're playing for bona fide American dollars only sweetens the pot. Unless your name is Britannica, you'll be hard-pressed to score 100 percent in even one round. Even the bar's namesake and owner Alex Hernandez himself said, “You'd have to be a glutton for punishment to keep coming back.” No pandering, no mercy. And each month, they have one themed night, so fans of a particular topic—say, The Simpsons or Game of Thrones—can really let their nerd flag fly. It's held every Monday, so you can start your week with a brain burner; trivia anywhere else during the rest of the week will be easier than coming up with a clever team name.
