This will be the first Trivia Night at our new location,1023 Ridgewood Drive Metairie LA, 70001, off Airline Drive near Hurwitz Mintz

The Deutsches Haus Trivia Night is for the whole family, with categories like “today’s news,” “local stuff,” “children’s cartoons,” and anything else trivial we can think of. There are five rounds with 10 questions each, and sometimes even a bonus round!

Bring friends and form a team, or come solo and join up with other folks looking to form a team. We will have food, drinks, and prizes for the winning and losing teams.
