Calling all Food Geeks

We were hoping that’d get your attention. Not that we think being geeky when it comes to food is a bad thing–on the contrary, we encourage it, and we also encourage know-it-alls with picky palates to consider trekking to Park Slope for a round of food trivia on Monday December 14.

That’s when our sister pub, Edible Brooklyn,  is hosting Edible Pursuits, aka a food trivia night at Sheep Station in Park Slope. (It’s just a few blocks from the Atlantic-Pacific Aves. subway station.) We’ve heard there’s a crack team from Time Out New York’s Eat Out section that’ll be ready to take on all comers, plus yours truly will be hosting the whole affair. It’s just $15 to compete (that also gets you a free pint of Kelso) and our prizes are pretty swell, if we do say so ourselves. Get the rundown of winnable goods and buy your tickets for Trivia Night right here.
