Deutsches Haus is hosting its first trivia night since it moved from its longtime Mid-City home to Metairie. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 27, at the new Deutsches Haus (1023 Ridgewood Drive, Metairie, 522-8014). Trivia categories include “children’s cartoons,” “today’s news,” “local stuff,” and more. The game includes five rounds with 10 questions each and a bonus round.
Participants can form teams or join with others to form a team after arriving at Deutsches Haus. There will be food, drinks and prizes. Doors open at 3 p.m., and the whole family is invited.
Deutsches Haus, a nonprofit German heritage club, opened in an old telephone company building on South Galvez Street in Mid-City in 1928, where it remained until it moved to Metairie in November 2010 as its neighborhood was cleared to make way for the new University Medical Center complex. The Mid-City building was torn down May 17. Deutsches Haus operators say they expect to stay in their Metairie location for about two years, until they can find a suitable site in New Orleans.
Deutsches Haus’ bar is open Wednesday through Saturday.
