A Handy Travel Tip
Let's say you're a visitor to New York City. Let's say you're alone, and in need of something to do, so you get online and search out trivia night at bars in Manhattan. Let's also assume you find a calendar for such, updated for the week you're visiting. You find a trivia game listed at a bar a mere 20 minute subway ride away, so you jump on a train and off you go.
But upon arrival at said bar, the bartender informs you that trivia nights were cancelled a few months ago, as the crowds were getting too boisterous.
The tip? Call ahead. No matter what you read on the internet (I know, I know, hard to believe anything on the Internet isn't 100% true). Call ahead and confirm. Always.
