Announcing Trivia Talks With Kelly English, Chef Tam, Jimmy Ogle, and More!

Local entertainment guru Kevin Cerrito has kept Memphians entertained with virtual events this entire pandemic, and he’s got a new idea for a fun game night: Trivia Talks!

Cerrito hosts regular trivia nights, beer tastings, game shows, and even has a second Virtual Memphis Beer Festival coming up in March, but for this new game he’ll combine two of our favorite things—interesting Memphians and trivia with prizes. 

Graphic that says "Trivia Talks"


Trivia Talks is a two night event happening on February 20 and 27, 2021 at 7 p.m. CST. Each night, three Memphis personalities will give a short talk, do a Q&A, and interact with you in real time via a livestream.

Then, there will be trivia questions to see how much of the evening’s discussion you remember, with lots of prizes to win.

Tickets are $20 per team per night or $30 per team for both nights. You can play from anywhere in the world, and your team members don’t all have to be in the same place to play. Get group together, everyone throw in $5-$10 for the ticket, and fire up the group chat/Google Hangout/conference call to discuss trivia answers during the stream.

A portion of the ticket sales go to Memphis Food Industry Emergency Worker Assistance fund. Also note that the restaurant gift cards given as prizes to the winning teams will be purchased, not donated, so you’re supporting your favorite local restaurants and restaurant workers during this event.

P.S. if you become a Cerrito Patron on Patreon, you can save on tickets, too.
