Join us at The Well for good food, great friends, conversation and trivia as we put our collective wits and general knowledge of random facts against other teams.  Even if you don't consider yourself a trivia nut, this is still a lot of fun. Bring a friend – the more the merrier!  When you get there, just tell the host you're with IJF. And if for any reason there is no trivia, come for the friendship!​
