Nothing Trivial: Scenes from Last Night’s Edible Pursuit Party at Brooklyn Brewery

For your perusal, a few scenes from last night’s Edible Pursuit, the second in our series of trivia nights. The theme was alcohol — one round of 15 questions each on beer, wine and booze — and nearly 100 people packed Brooklyn Brewery for the chance to win, win, win big, big, big prizes, like dinner for two at the sweet Bedford Avenue shop Radish, six bottles of booze and two hours of free beer, burgers and bowling at Brooklyn Bowl.

Actually, we hope we speak for the crowd when we say it was actually just kind of fun to play. Heck, we think we might have even learned something!
