FORMERLY TWICE MONTHLY  MONDAY 
Trivia Club's Black Label location was a bi-weekly event from September 2013 to September 2017, before it became a weekly event in time for our fourth annual Christopher Hitchens Cup, and then shifting back to a more comfortable twice monthly schedule in the summer of 2018.. The audio and visual side of Trivia Club would not be possible, if not for Hitch. On May 20th, 2019 Hitch became our longest-running location at 2,080 days which surpassed the full run of Trivia Club at Cardinal Rule by two days, while also having become the location with the second-most events with the 131st in August of 2018. In total Trivia Club ran at Hitch for 2,345 days or 6 years, 5 months, and 1 day.

PAST HITCH EVENTS 

The Christopher Hitchens Cup, in honour of Hitch's namesake, is an Annual Event that takes place each September at Trivia Club's east-end Toronto location, making it Trivia Club's Fall Classic! The Hitchens Cup is notable for being the only imbibable Annual Championship, a Golden bottle of Christopher Hitchens' drink of choice, Johnny Walker Black. The Hitchens Cup winner for the first three years was the team with the highest aggregate score in the month of September, celebrating our first night at Hitch, on September 9th, 2013! In 2016/2017 it became a best two-outta-three scores aggregate, before returning to the aggregate score over the two events in September, for the next two years!
