We love events that combine multiple fun activities into one awesomely good time. If you love trivia, enjoying drinks, and helping a good cause, we’ve got your plans for November 18!

Newtown Literary is throwing a Book Trivia Night at Break Bar to a help raise the necessary funds to print the ninth issue of their Queens-based literary journal. The event will feature exciting prizes and raffles, with a chance to win gift cards and other swag from local businesses like Astoria Bookshop, Astoria Coffee, as well as local authors.

The event will be hosted by Richard Jeffrey Newman, a local poet and organizer of First Tuesdays, a monthly open mic and reading series in Jackson Heights.

Book-loving teams will consist of four to six people, but individuals are more than welcome to partake—organizers will find you a team to join when you arrive!

Advance tickets are $10 on Eventbrite, (Link here!) and tickets can also be purchased at the door for $12. Doors will open at 7:00, and trivia will begin at 7:30. If you don’t register your team via Eventbrite, be sure to arrive on time at 7:00. (If you’re an early bird who does register your team via Eventbrite, you get a free mulligan at the door!)

Your money will go a long way: Every dollar raised from event ticketing and raffle ticket sales will go directly toward printing the ninth issue of Newtown Literary, due out in December 2016. This event is a win, win, win!

Happy reading, drinking, and hopefully, prize-winning!
