Chandler Museum trivia nights offer great food, drinks and fun with friends sharing their knowledge of local history
 
Marshall Shore, Arizona's Hip HistorianChandler Museum Trivia Night returns to The Ostrich Bar in Downtown Chandler on Tuesday, May 30, with Hip Historian Marshall Shore hosting the festivities from 7-9 p.m. Trivia Nights combine historic photos from the museum’s archive with delicious food and drinks, and plenty of kitsch and outrageous fun emceed by Shore. The Ostrich is located in the basement of Crust, adjacent to the San Marcos Resort, at 10 N. San Marcos Place.
 
“Our next Trivia Night is a fun way for people to ease back into a normal week after the long Memorial Day weekend,” said Chandler Museum Administrator Jody Crago. “Come out and enjoy a craft cocktail in one hand and a pencil in the other while you answer questions about the history behind some Chandler’s streets, their names and their happenings.”
 
This is the first of four trivia events scheduled by the Museum for 2017. The second event on Tuesday, June 13, will move to a new location, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 4955 S. Arizona Ave. From 7-9 p.m., attendees will hear all about the East Valley’s baseball past as told by Shore and compete with other trivia enthusiasts.
 
“We had such a great turnout last year for our trivia nights,” Crago said. “This year, between Alamo Drafthouse and The Ostrich, we are having these events at two of the coolest places in Chandler!”
 
Additional Trivia Night sessions are being planned for The Ostrich in August and Alamo in October. Reservations are requested for teams of four to six to take part in the fun at these events. For more information and to make online reservations, go to chandlermuseum.org.
