Put your useful and useless knowledge to work: Pub Quiz set for Sept. 28 at Arch Bridge Taphouse

Do you love useful and useless knowledge? Want to prove that you and your friends know more than others?

The Clackamas County Historical Society (CCHS) is teaming up with local tavern Arch Bridge Taphouse for a night of pub quiz-style trivia on Sept. 28.

“Pub Quiz is a popular event at bars across the country including several in Portland,” said CCHS Director Claire Blaylock. “It’s about time it came to Oregon City. By no means are questions only about history — topics range from literature to college football, from geography to science fiction.”

The free event is available to all patrons of Arch Bridge Taphouse. The team competition is limited to four players per team; registration begins at 7 p.m. and competition begins at 7:30 p.m. The competition will consist of seven rounds, each having 10 questions. Some questions may be visual, and some rounds will have stated themes. The use of cellphones during play will not be permitted. Prizes will be awarded to winning teams.

Blaylock suggests you build a team with people who share different strengths of knowledge.

“I know a ton of history, but I’m not great with geography,” she said. “How am I supposed to know what the largest lake in the world is?”

The Arch Bridge Taphouse is located at 205 Seventh St. in Oregon City. Those wishing to participate are encouraged to arrive early.
