    I’ve never seen or heard a tree frog in West Seattle. Where was this?

    Facebook just advertised this “West Seattle Trivia Championship” to me to happen on Wednesday at 7 pm at Great American Diner. I checked the calendar and didn’t see anything there but it looks like there are several other regular trivia events happening that night. I also checked their social media and didn’t see it advertised. Does anyone know what this is? https://fb.watch/mJ4rxWyTnK/?mibextid=Nif5oz

      Only Google reference to that phrase comes up with a July 31st post by Good Society saying that was the “last week of qualifiers for the West Seattle Trivia Championship.” No other mentions. I think I have the direct email for their trivia host, so I’ll ask him…

        Thanks for that. I read a little farther back in their posts and see that it was going on for a few weeks at least at Good Society. The post I saw made it sound like anyone could sign up. I wish I’d known at the beginning of the tournament. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
