Friends the TV Show Trivia Night at Hooley’s – Wednesday August 9th

Quick! Does anyone know how to calculate the WENUS?

Us neither, but you’ve got until Wednesday, August 9th at 7:30 pm to figure it out. 🙂


Join us at Hooley’s Pub on Elgin for a night of “Friends the TV show” Trivia. Your knowledge of Central Perk, an improbably rent-controlled apartment, and Joey’s signature acting style could net you RVRD swag and tickets to our upcoming home team championship. 

So steal Mrs Chanandler Bong’s TV Guide, and gather your Rachel, Monica, Joey, and Chandler for your team. (Ross is still the Quiz Master, after all)

Tickets are $5 in advance or $8 at the door (first come, first served)

Teams of no more than six people.
Hooley’s Pub (292 Elgin Street)
Doors at 7:30 pm / Trivia from 8 pm – 10 pm
