Here's where to play live trivia in San Antonio almost any night of the week

While it's all well and good to play along with Jeopardy at home, it's more fun to stretch your legs — and your cerebellum — in good company. And maybe with an adult beverage in hand.

Bars and restaurants all over San Antonio liven things up with trivia nights each week, and a few movie theaters are even getting in on the action. Whether you're a quiz newbie or a longtime player with a competitive streak, these trivia nights across San Antonio are sure to please.

By no means are these the only places to enjoy live trivia locally, but we can certainly vouch for the quality of experience.
