No matter where you look, practically every bar or restaurant has a trivia night at some point during the week. Akin to bingo for young adults, trivia has become fun because of the personalities behind the mic. Anyone can ask an innocuous trivia question like, "What's the name of the comedian who played a crackhead in New Jack City?" (Chris Rock, duh), but only a few can bring personality to the proceedings the way trivia duo Val and Ryan do. Ryan offers the occasional witticism while Val balances it out with a little more vulgarity, giving the whole proceeding an odd-couple vibe akin to Heckle and Jeckle.
