If those bar trivia nights you frequent are the regular-season events, then the Sports Trivia Championship is the World Series of question-and-answer competitions. With around 120 ten-person teams (cost is $100 per person at a standard table, and you get drinks and food), the sheer size of this fundraiser for the St. Patrick Center makes it champion over all others. Plus, broadcasters and other sporty types show up, and your team has the opportunity to win all kinds of tickets (to sporting events, of course)! Now, tables are filling up quickly, so if you miss out this year, you're not totally eliminated from the fun: You can still come down to the Scottrade Center (South 14th Street and Clark Avenue) and hang in the Stay & Play Zone. Tailgating starts at 5 p.m., and trivia-ing gets going at 7:30 p.m. Learn more information, including how to sign up your team, by calling 314-802-5445 or visiting www.sportstriviachampionship.org.
