    I used to have so much fun going out for Tuesday night trivia at this Irish pub when I worked in the Financial District in Boston. It’s a good way to socialize with coworkers and unwind after work. Makes me want to land a job somewhere cool downtown after graduation and work trivia night back into my routine!
