SOMERVILLE, MA, ISSUED APRIL 11, 2022…Daddy Jones Bar and Restaurant (http://daddyjonesbar.com), a lively restaurant offering outdoor dining, casual Greek food and burgers, and which has served the Somerville community since 2012, is introducing a fun activity for family and friends alike: Thursday Night Trivia, right at the restaurant at 525 Medford Street.
Come join your friends and neighbors each Thursday evening starting at 8 p.m. to test your trivia skills. It’s all in fun, and there are prizes given away each week to the top competitors. There is no cost to attend, but reservations are required and people can register on the website or at the restaurant. Thursday Night Trivia offers a different theme each week. Contests have included about Golden Girls, Real Housewives and a range of topics from the classic to the edgy. John Flaherty, a manager at Daddy Jones, is the trivia host.
Owner Dimitra Murphy notes that the next trivia contest, scheduled for April 14, is “Cancelled.” She says, “We’ve all heard a lot about cancel culture. We have an actual trivia contest about people who have been cancelled because of something they’ve done or that they haven’t done. Come and join in the fun!”
Owner Dimitra Murphy, a Somerville native with deep ties to the community, invites customers to come for dinner prior to trivia. Dinner is served from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, until 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturday and to 9 p.m. on Sundays. Daddy Jones also offers weekend Coffee Shop services and anticipates opening their patio for outdoor dining in the near future. And for those who prefer take-out, they can order online.
