In a city filled with students, professors, and self-proclaimed nerds, it’s no wonder pub trivia is so popular in Boston. Between professional trivia organizations and independent trivia games, you can find trivia every night of the week. Prizes vary by locations but are usually gift certificates or cash. Grab your friends, choose a witty moniker and show off your wealth of useless knowledge at one of these hot trivia spots. – By Katherine Santiago
