New West has a thriving nightlife – full of cool alternative ways to go out and have some casual fun with friends. One of the ways it’s growing (really, faster than we can even keep up!) is with stellar Trivia nights! One of the companies responsible for bringing pop culture trivia to New West is Brainstorm Trivia – a bar trivia operation working out of New West and Coquitlam. Popular for their packed Friends (and upcoming Starwars!) themed nights and the infamous ‘bag of crap’ – where everyone is the winner, whether or not you really want the prize…
“Now, however, the demand is increasing. We’re seeing a newer audience, a younger fanbase. They are coming out more and they want more entertainment. It’s really great to see the city blossoming to meet those demand, more culture, more music festivals. The nightlife in New West has always been something great, especially down the main drag of Columbia – think Begbies, with the live music. Now the other bars are trying to up that! tap into that fan base.” — Gregory Milne, Brainstorm Trivia host at Taphouse Tuesdays.
