"Politics and Pints" is back!

Are you ready for some (political) trivia?

Next Monday -- Jan. 11 -- we will host the second "Politics and Pints" trivia night at the Capitol Lounge on Capitol Hill from 7 pm to 9 pm.

For those of you who missed the first one -- for shame! -- in December, it was a great night of politics and merriment with a group from the Hotline coming out on top.

Prizes will be awarded not just to the winners but also the team with the most creative name as judged by yours truly. (There will be a variety of prizes but the true reward will be official Fix t-shirts.)

The rules are few -- and simple: 1) No more than six people on a team. 2) No cheating via the use of electronic devices like iPhones and blackberries 3) no questioning of the quizmaster -- he knows all ;)

There is no pre-registration for teams so if's first come, first served. Get there early to make sure your team gets in -- several squads were too late last time around. And, if you don't have a team but want to play anyway don't worry about it -- we will make sure you get matched up with some good Fixistas.

Want to be alerted personally about future "Politics and Pints" events? Shoot an email to with "Politics and Pints" in the subject line and we'll add you to the early alert list.

The invite is below. And, make sure you check out the Facebook invite too. Spread the word.

I thought it was only $1 OFF the regular price?

Great, a bunch of journalists and $1 beer. Should get interesting.

Chris, for those of us not inside the beltway, will it be televised on C-SPAN ?

Sorry, I know, you "answered that question yesterday".

"no cheating"? for shame! Are we then forbidden from using all the political tricks we learn from the Fix? If the Fix is in, what you really mean to forbid is unsuccessful cheating.

I'll see if I can get a team together. Anyone interested in forming or joining a team, email me at

Let me know when you take the show on the road. Of course, here you'd have to compete with MPR's politics and a pint.
