New York Magazine - "5 Best Bar Trivia Nights"
Even Comic Book Guy would cringe at the prospect of fielding 50 questions culled from 248 episodes of any sitcom, let alone one as vividly detailed as The Simpsons. Yet the first Thursday of each month inspires scores of otherwise rational people to do just that at Berry Park, where the sitcom's first eleven seasons are divvied up into intensely specific categories — "Edna Krabappel," for instance, or "medicine." Thankfully, the event's ringleader, Andrew Ennals, helps jog rusty memories by screening popular episodes between rounds. And while there are no bar tabs or pots of money awaiting the victors, Ennals does present the best three teams with boxes of doughnuts from Peter Pan Bakery, and the bar provides the night's overall champions with a well-deserved bottle of champagne.

Time Out New York - Critic's Pick
Finally, someone created a pub quiz that rewards the hours you've devoted to watching our favorite prime-time animated TV family. Trivia master Andrew Ennals will pose 50 questions in categories that cover a supporting character (such as Lionel Hutz and Milhouse Van Houten) or a subject (like music or food). Screenings of the show in between rounds can help jog memories. Winners get boxes of Homer's favorite, doughnuts, and the top team wins a bottle of champagne (which they can pretend is Duff Beer).

CBS New York - Top 5 Things To Do In NYC Tonight
Hooray! Someone was finally smart enough to start a Simpsons Trivia night. Join trivia master Andrew Ennals as he shells out 50 questions in categories that cover a supporting character or a subject of the show. Think Milhouse Van Houten or a category like food or music. There will even be screenings of the show in between rounds. Of course, the winners receive a box of Homer's favorite doughnuts and a bottle of champagne. Sorry, it's not Duff beer. Games begin at 8 p.m.
