Last night was “game” night (as in card & board games) at the local sports bar. I got it together and went over there to meet up with about 60 singles, a mixed group in terms of gender, race/ethnicity, age, & probably orientation (I can kinda guess who might have been homosexual, but I don’t know for sure). Pretty average group for Brooklyn.
I played what turned out to be the world’s longest and most complicated game of Trivia Pursuit, during which I met some interesting people & had a few laughs. Was relaxed, easygoing, all in all a good way to get to know people. For example, I found out that Mike, my Trivia Pursuit teammate, majored in English in college the same as I did, and he remembers Shakespeare better (after two whiskey nears) than I do, which is impressive. Or that Ricardo, who I could’ve sworn was a lawyer, works in communications. Great group of people & I look forward to seeing them again soon.
