June/July 2024 Newsletter


A Look back at the World of Stewpendous Trivia in June:



June was packed with trivia fun at our favorite spaces and our new awesome spaces! We launched a brand new trivia show at Kibbitznest in Lincoln Park! We celebrated the biggest summer movie, Inside Out 2, with several Pixar-themed trivia nights at Replay and Sidetrack. We ended the month celebrating pop sensation Chappell Roan with trivia that had her biggest fans dressed in their Pink Pony best, we got quizzical and ended in a dance party where we danced the night away.  The month would not have been complete without our Rainbow celebration throughout our shows celebrating LGBTQIA+ trailblazers, icons, and pop culture legends. 


The biggest highlight of the month was our Sparkle Squad Hosts Amanda and Dane got married!  Love was felt everywhere and you can’t ask for a better prize than that.


Fun Fact of the Month!


One in 18 people have a third nipple. Known as polythelia, the third nipple is caused by a mutation in inactive genes.

BINGO is big this summer!

In July, we are going all in with Bingo in a variety of ways: 

You don’t want to miss Sunday Funday Music Bingo! Our newest partner Punch Bowl Social will be your ultimate weekend destination for a fun music twist on the game of bingo. In addition to Bingo nights at Punch Bowl Social,  we will provide the Fulton Market neighborhood with our classic Stewpendous Trivia shows on Tuesdays at 7 PM starting July 7th. 


Bingo will also be an entertainment option at The Fat Shallot! Drop by on July 10th or August 7th for a family-friendly fun bingo night!


We’re not done yet! Starting at the end of the month, Thursday, July 25th, BINGO is coming to our partner bar, Whiskey Girl Tavern!  


Did you think we’d forget Trivia!? We have so many fun-themed trivia nights coming up this month including celebrating heroes like The Power Rangers! Of course, the highly anticipated Deadpool & Wolverine blockbuster movie is releasing this month, Marvel anyone? And this month we have a 2-week ACOTAR tournament, and if you know what that stands for this is the tournament for you!

Nostalgia is a key pillar of our quizzical philosophy! Every month we’ll give you a fun, nostalgic pop-culture recipe that will surely awaken your memories!


Summer Strawberry Shortcake Jell-O Shots!

She was an icon of the 80s! If you had one of these dolls you still remember the smell!


INGREDIENTS FOR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE JELL-O SHOTS: (from Delish)

  • 70 large strawberries (about 3 lb.)

  • 1 (3-oz.) box strawberry Jell-O

  • 1 c. boiling water 

  • 1 c. vodka

  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar, for rimming strawberries

  • Reddi-Wip, for garnish

  • Crushed Nilla Wafers, for garnish


  1. Using a paring knife, cut the tops and tips of the strawberries off so they can stand up and no longer have stems. Using a melon baller, create wells in the strawberries, being careful not to make any other holes. Discard insides.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together Jell-o and water until completely dissolved. Add vodka and whisk to combine.

  3. Dip each strawberry in sugar, then carefully pour Jell-o mixture into strawberries. Refrigerate until firm, 3 to 4 hours.

  4. Top with Reddi-wip and sprinkle with Nilla Wafers.
