With the pandemic officially behind us and no longer a threat to…
Wait. Let me start over.
With more and more Oklahomans being vaccinated, COVID cases plummeting in Oklahoma County, and – perhaps most importantly – our government welfare money quickly drying up, we’re excited to officially bring back FREE Lost Ogle Trivia and Bingo nights to the OKC metro!
Yep, that’s right. Trivia is back, and with a brand new format and limited schedule.
Starting next week, we’ll be at three local metro watering holes asking fun and topical trivia questions (and/or calling winning bingo numbers) into a microphone. If you’ve got a shot in the arm (or haven’t) and feel comfortable getting out, we’d love to see you. If not, we totally get it and hope to see you sometime later this year or decade.
Here’s our schedule for next week.
Free Team Trivia
Tuesday • Fassler Hall • 8pm – 10pm
Wednesday • Cock O’ The Walk • 8pm – 10pm
Friday • Buffalo Wild Wings (NW Expressway) • 9pm – 11pm
Free Jackpot Bar Bingo
Monday • Fassler Hall • 8pm – 10pm
Tuesday • Cock O’ The Walk • 8pm – 10pm
As the world continues to reopen (or possibly shut down again), we hope to add more weekly events over the spring and summer all across the Metro and even Tulsa.
If you’ve never played bar trivia or bar bingo, it’s a good excuse to get out, connect with friends you may not have seen in a while, and have some fun in the process. You can even win free stuff while you’re at it.
Like any inquisitive person, I’m sure you have some questions. Here are your answers:
What’s up with this new trivia format? We’ve updated our trivia format to be a bit more social-distance complaint. As opposed to writing down answers on a sheet of paper and bringing them to us to grade, teams simply designate a captain and text us their responses. We’ve also added a speed element where we give bonus points to the first team the sends in a correct answer. Outside of that, it’s about the same trivia night. We ask questions, teams answer them, and the top three win house cash from the venue. As the world slowly returns to normal, we’ll morph back to our classic style of trivia. Then again, maybe we won’t. We’re playing everything by ear at the moment.
What’s Jackpot Bar Bingo? The name says it all! We call numbers. If you get a bingo, you win some bar cash. Each venue also has its own cash jackpot. If you hit a bingo after just 7 numbers in the jackpot round, you take that home. Just like trivia, it’s totally free to play.
You’ve been one of the leaders of the “shaming people for doing stuff during the pandemic” movement? Isn’t this incredibly hypocritical? I don’t think so. We were critical of people and businesses that disregarded, mocked and flouted social distancing guidelines during the pandemic, but with vaccines now readily available in Oklahoma to whoever wants one, we think it’s okay to open up as responsibly as possible and get back out there.
Is it okay for me to ignore those important nuances and troll you anyway? That’s fine. I totally understand.
Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
