Trivia Night is coming back to the Deutsches Haus, and will be held this Friday May 27 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 3). There is no admission cost, and you don’t have to be a Deutsches Haus member to play. 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.
The fate of Deutsches Haus in Mid-City, an old telephone company building at 200 S. Galvez St., was sealed once it became clear that it sits within the area where the University Medical Center hospital complex will be built.
Deutsches Haus, founded as a German cultural center in 1928, has been the site of annual Oktoberfest celebrations and hilarity, as well as other festivals and holidays, echoing with polka music and the ubiquitous chicken dance enjoyed by young and old alike.
The Oktoberfest celebration in October 2010 marked the last party ever at the S. Galvez Street site.
The center’s directors moved their activities in mid-November to 1023 Ridgewood St. in Metairie, where they expect to stay for two years while they find another permanent home in New Orleans.

The Open House will feature complementary German beer, food, music, and other refreshments. This event is open to the public, and media are encouraged to attend.
