Smarty Pints Trivia @ Grub & Groove
A new little watering hold opened up in the Loft off Jianguo lu, and they’ve started up a trivia night on Mondays. The layout of the place is just right, and it seems like a perfectly good place to eat, drink and do a little brain teasing. They have a selection of house wines, inported brews, fine whiskeys, and in the future, live music to boot!
