'Genius Trivia' at Blind Pig for Literacy Fundraiser

Everyone loves to go out and fight against other friend groups for the right to call themselves the reigning kings and queens of trivia, and the Blind Pig has just the event next week.
The Lafayette County Literacy Council will host the third Genius Trivia fundraiser on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at the Blind Pig.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and trivia starts at 7:30. Entrance fee is $10 per person to play and $5 suggested donation for non-competitors. Mulligans will be available for purchase at the door before the competition starts, with a limit of two per team.
All proceeds benefit the Lafayette County Literacy Council’s programs.
