If trivia's your game, you're probably thrilled that today is National Trivia Day. And if you actually knew today was National Trivia Day, then we're rewarding you a bonus point.

For Q&A connoisseurs in search of a celebratory game gathering this week, we've got a few hot trivia spots for your consideration, including winning bar tabs up for grabs.

After all, we certainly can't disagree with exchanging wisdom for whiskey.

Pub Quiz Tuesdays at Fado
It's the best little Irish pub in

Mary Brickell Village, which means it's got the best little Irish pub

quiz in town. Each Tuesday, Fado welcomes Brainstormer Pub Quiz into its

quarters to tame the trivia masses. Emcee JR is the man of the night,

testing your knowledge of everything from current events to literature,

music, movies, and famous faces. Feeling stiff? Loosen up with a few

pints of precisely pumped Guinness to get your head in the game. Even if you don't score with prizes and specials, at least you'll have a

decent buzz.

Trivial Tuesdays at Abraxas Lounge
Still going strong following its title of Best Pub Quiz 2010 by New Times,

Abraxas continues to kick ass at trivia night. Join the original

Trivial Tuesdays honcho himself, Mr. Jim T., and dig deep into that

mental vault. Nestled in SoBe's South of Fifth district, it'll be hard

to leave t he bar, especially after you've won a gratis bar tab on Trivial

Tuesday. Luckily, this week is the first Thursday of the month, which

means you might just get away with laying low until Music Trivia Night

two days later. That is, if you're okay being 'that guy.'

Wednesday Trivia & Karaoke at Tom's NFL Sports Bar & Grill
It

seems there's one Miami Springs staple that's got a hump day fix for

all. Known for its wings and Wednesday nights, Tom's brings it hard with

a double dose of entertainment. At 8 p.m., crank up your cranium for a

game of trivia courtesy of the Wonderkidz Trivia Team. The winner receives a $50

bar tab, just in time for karaoke at 9 p.m. That's right, kids. Get

smart so you can get stupid. That's the name of Tom's game.

Team Trivia Thursdays at John Martin's Irish Pub
If

you're out and about near Miracle Mile on Thursday, one Coral Gables

Irish pub will welcome you with open arms -- and a few tough questions.

Try your hand at John Martin's Team Trivia Thursdays beginning weekly at 8pm. Hosted

by Trivia Leaders, you know it's a serious pub quiz when there's an

official curator behind it. If the game gets too intense, hit the beer

taps. If a chilled mug or two doesn't hit the spot, surely a scoop

of homemade Bailey's ice cream will be your alibi.

Team Trivia Fridays at Sandbar Sports Grill
Down

in the U's neck of the woods, Sandbar cooks up Team Trivia

nights every Friday in Coconut Grove. Whether you've had a long week on

campus or just a rough Thursday night out, Sandbar's got your laid-back

weekend fix. Bring your sorority sisters and grab a table as early as 4

p.m. -- that's when happy hour kicks off. You'll have three full hours to

eat, drink, and be merry before the first round begins. That's plenty of

liquid courage and savory sustenance to get your think tank up and

running. If not, you can always take one for the team. Remember,

losers buy the next round...
