Trivia Night at The OstrichThe Chandler Museum and The Ostrich Bar are once again hosting Trivia Night from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016, hosted by Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian.
Attendees will get into the holiday spirit as they sip on classic cocktails and learn more about Chandler’s unique tradition of a tumbleweed Christmas tree, how the community became a draw for winter visitors, and other wonderful seasonal delights from the Valley’s past.
“We are excited to finish up this year’s trivia series with a theme that looks at past holiday traditions,” said Museum Administrator Jody Crago. “Everyone will have a great time with trivia host Marshall Shore as they learn more about the place where they live. All of the local stories and photos that are shared are from the Museum’s archive.”

  • 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.
