Kickback with Trivia

Friday night, we will offer trivia in conjunction with the hotel's happy hour kickback. Here are the details:

  • Trivia starts at 6:00, but food service starts at 5:30.
  • Compete in teams of up to 5 members. (Start putting together your teams and picking a name now, or just show up between 5:30-6:00 to be matched with other spontaneous spirits.)
  • Food and drink is an important part of St. Louis trivia. We will be taking advantage of the hotel's kickback for this:
  • The 5:30–7 p.m. kickback includes free hot food and cold beverages at our 5:30 Kickback. Try something different every night! Our rotating menu of fresh, hot food and beer, wine, mixed drinks and soft drinks are served every day. See an example Kickback menu
