Chandler Museum and The Ostrich host third Trivia Night with ‘Hipstorian’ Marshall Shore
Tikis, travel and tangerines at the coolest speakeasy in the Valley
The Chandler Museum and The Ostrich Bar are once again hosting Trivia Night from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016, hosted by Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian.
This will be the third in a series of trivia nights coordinated by the Museum and The Ostrich. Attendees will enjoy Tiki Tuesday while learning about the tiki kitsch of the past. They hear stories of Chandler as a travel destination for the stars, the City’s place on Route 66 and a bit about the area’s citrus history, all while sipping the best cocktails in the Valley.
 “This is a fantastic event and we are so glad to have the pleasure to continue partnering with The Ostrich and Marshall Shore,” says Jody Crago, Museum Administrator at Chandler Museum. “People can learn more about the place where they live while going out and having a good time with friends. All of the local stories and photos that are shared are from the Museum’s archive.”
“Our first two events were a great success; people couldn’t stop talking about how much they loved them,” says Mike Merendino, owner of The Ostrich and the upstairs restaurant, Crust. “We think this is going to be one of the best. Wear your Hawaiian shirt and lei for an evening of fun.”
The Ostrich is located in the basement of Crust, near the San Marcos, at 10 N. San Marcos Place, in downtown Chandler. In addition to cocktails created by celebrated mixologist Brandon Casey, some of the savory bites that have made Crust a foodie destination will also be on the menu.
Reservations are required for teams of four to six to take part in the fun. Make reservations online. For more information, go to or call 480-917-4903.

  • Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian
Marshall Shore’s passion is uncovering the weird, the wonderful and the obscure treasures from our past: the semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today. Marshall uses storytelling magic, found film footage, old photographs, ephemera and artifacts to bring our state’s heritage to life in entertaining and educational presentations.
  • The Ostrich
Located directly below Crust Chandler, the Ostrich is a neighborhood craft cocktail lounge inspired by the rich history dating back to the city’s founding days of 1912. After nearly a year of renovations and excavations, the Ostrich is making a name for itself around the Valley as a destination for the best cocktails in town. The Ostrich is open Wednesday through Saturday, 7 p.m. to midnight. If the light at the top of the stairs is on, we’re open.
