Know-It-Alls Earn Their Keep

Everyone has at least one know-it-all friend who is constantly correcting everyone or dispensing little factoids. “Actually, that’s the dolphin fish — or mahi-mahi — you’re eating, not Flipper.” If you don’t have one of these friends, sorry to inform you, but you probably are that annoying person. Never fear: There is a way for you to redeem yourself — or to benefit from the know-it-all — and it’s called Trivia Night. This Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Wave (2700 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton) local karaoke king and general good-time maker Frank-E-Oke hosts a live trivia night. Twenty questions are asked over four rounds. After each question, a three-minute song is played, giving you time to come up with and submit your answer. Prizes are given out to winners only, but happy-hour drink specials are available to everyone. Categories include sports, music, movies, history, science and useless truth. The questions get more challenging as the night goes on, partly by design and partly because of those happy-hour drink specials. For now, trivia Tuesday is scheduled only for March, but if it’s a big hit, it might just become an ongoing weekly event. Call the Wave at 561-361-2700, visit, or check out the event page on Facebook.
Tue., March 20, 7-9 p.m., 2012
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
