More than 100 people gathered Wednesday night at Modist Brewing in Minneapolis’ North Loop to compete in our first-ever MinnPost Quiz Live! in partnership with the Minneapolis Foundation’s new OneMpls Hub.
The pub-style trivia version of our weekly MinnPost Quiz featured Minneapolis Foundation President and CEO R.T. Rybak and MinnPost quizmaster Andrew Minck challenging teams to flaunt their knowledge of the state, from the birthplace of famous Minnesotans to facts about the upcoming election to names of all of the lakes in Minneapolis (hint: It’s more than you think).
Seventeen spirited teams participated in the event, facing off against teams from MinnPost and the Minneapolis Foundation for an array of fabulous prizes and bragging rights.
Congratulations to our winners!
1st Place (tie): The Almaniacs (representing Twin Cities PBS’ “Almanac”) and We Just Work Here (MinnPost’s editorial team)
2nd Place: McLovin
3rd Place: One Nation, Under Canada
