Where you There? The Co-op’s Second Annual Trivia Night

Trivia Night with the Cedar Falls Food Co-op is a yearly event many look forward to enjoying. On April 10, twenty people showed up to eat, drink, play, and support the Co-op at Lark Brewing. The participants split into four teams: 3 Peas in a Pod, Jacks, CF Golden Stars, and Strongest Avenger. Could you have answered the questions correctly if you were there?

Round one was about Iowa. “What is Iowa’s oldest city?” “What name is this famous Iowan best known as: Robert Morrison, born in Winterset?” “What is Iowa’s only island city?” Round two was about beer. “To whom did the Anheuser-Busch company send the first case of Budweiser beer produced after the repeal of prohibition in 1933?” “What ancient people are credited with having brewed the first beer?” “What are the four main ingredients in beer?”

Before heading into round three, a game of “Dead or Alive” was played, allowing everyone to join in whether they were a part of a team or not. The last round consisted of pictures of Rooty, the Co-op’s carrot mascot, visiting various local attractions, such as: Bike Tech, Oster Regent Theatre, the Ice House, Maid-Rite, the Imaginarium, and the Hearst Center for the Arts.

While the judges added up the various scores from each team, everyone was guessing which team would get to pose with the coveted golden carrot trophy. In fourth place was the Strongest Avenger, while third place belonged to 3 Peas in a Pod. Finishing in second place was Jacks. That left the CF Golden Stars with bragging rights for a year as the 2019 winners of the Cedar Falls Food Co-op Trivia Night!

We are grateful for the volunteers who created questions, took Rooty photos, and ran the event as well as Lark Brewing who hosted. Hope to see you all at next year’s event!
