About

the history of last call trivia

Last Call Trivia began in the Fall of 2007 when founders Adam and Drew saw a niche for great Trivia Nights in the Cincinnati market. The 10 years that followed bootstrapped their love of Trivia into the seats of hundreds of bars across the country.

The best part of our epic journey has been the community we’ve been able to create and that community is a testament to the power of Trivia Nights. We believe that our role in this industry is not a zero-sum game, but rather an infinite game where we seek to help knowledge spread and lives change.

Thank you for joining us on this journey and we hope that you’ll continue to be a part of our story.

 

The story behind our logo

We took inspiration from the craft-brewing industry, with the owl being wise, nocturnal, and predatory.
The eye was then designed as a quotation mark (rotate the owl-eye 90 degrees counter-clockwise and you’ll see it), as well as a drinking glass (look straight into the eye) to represent our thirst and passion for knowledge.

Part of our core operation is a dedication to Ending Alzheimer’s. Each year, the Last Call Trivia team participates in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, as well as donating proceeds from Ludimentis to the Alzheimer’s Association. 

Our goal in this monumental movement is to end this terrible disease, one trivia question at a time.

Give me a bottle of bourbon and half a chicken, and I’ll conquer the world! I’ve got life in me, and it’s fueled each and every day by my inspiring Team. Drew and I started Last Call in the Fall of 2007 and the subsequent years have taught me more than I ever learned in business school.

When Adam and I started Last Call Trivia, my motivation was world domination (or at least trivia domination). I’ve always had a knack for remembering useless information. By combining my creativity and soon-to-be useful knowledge with Adam’s business background, Last Call Trivia was born!

After being a stay at home mom for 10 years, I decided to enter the world of trivia.  Sales is my passion and after six years, I’m still at it.

I never dreamed of being in a sales role or management position. I wanted to change the world one student at a time as a History or Math teacher at a high school.

I grew up in a household that tuned into Jeopardy! every night of the week. I never realized that knowing, “A dressy term for hearts, spades, diamonds or clubs,” would help me out as an adult.

I still remember attending my first trivia night back in 2013. A group of my coworkers and I saw that a spot down the street was hosting a trivia night, and we decided to go for it. I was instantly hooked, the combination of good beer, great company, and some healthy competition was electrifying.

I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge, and as a writer for Last Call Trivia, I love the fact that I’m constantly learning new things through my writing and researching. I love that all of the so-called useless information I’ve acquired over the years can be applied to a job that I’m so passionate about.

When I discovered Trivia Nights through Last Call Trivia at a brewery near my house, I was hooked. Who wouldn’t be down for a little friendly competition, drinks, and the chance to utilize the random knowledge you have stored in your brain? What started as a weekly ritual with friends turned into the coolest opportunity ever when I saw the job posting for the role with Last Call Trivia.
