September 5, 2012 | Champions of Champions at the Middle East Corner

For a while, we assumed our nights of bar trivia had gone the way of keg stands and naked quad runs. But we’re happy to admit that hosts James Lindsay and Richard Hawke have proven us wrong with their recently launched Champions of Champions series. Held at 9 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at the Middle East Corner (480 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, 617.864.3278), this free game night takes trivia to some seriously bizarre territory, incorporating surprise guest appearances and unique physical challenges. (Imagine constructing your answer with Legos, for instance.) And with an influx of new students descending upon Cambridge, we’ve got a feeling the competition will be fiercer than ever.
