Ricochet's interior set-up is practically made for trivia nights.
When it comes to pop culture, there's no such thing as useless information. Sure, that part of your brain that stores the names of all five Golden Girls could've been used to cure cancer or invent a time-travel machine. But without it, you wouldn't be nearly so impressive to your friends on pub trivia nights.

Whether you're the music nerd who's well versed in genres from Bossa Nova to The Spice Girls, or that freaky savant who actually retained the information they were taught in eighth grade American History class, your trivia skills can come in extra handy at a boozy trivia night. They also make you one of the lucky nerds who win free bar tabs, free food, and even cash. And even if you don't score any swag, there's still no better way to unwind from the job you hate, the classes you can't stand, or that hair-pulling traffic on I-95 than with some healthy competition. So study hard and round up your most quick-witted friends -- we've rounded up Miami's top five trivia nights.

5. Tuesday Night Trivia at Elwood's Gastropub
Held every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, Elwood's schedule allows you sufficient time in between to generate the brain cells necessary for a record-breaking streak of correct answers -- or just to chug another round. This trivia night consists of three rounds of questions with prizes for winners of each round. Let's hope you're not one of those competitive people who get violent.

Deal: Two Estrella Damns on draft for $8, and $5 off all wine bottles.
Win: A pitcher of beer, beer glasses, and a t-shirt -- you know, in case you play dirty.
8 p.m., 188 NE Third Ave., Miami, 305-358-5222,

4. Team Trivia Fridays at Sandbar Sports Grill
This dive bar is home to penny beers, tabletop dancing, and every student in Miami at some point in their college careers. Every Friday night, Sandbar's game enthusiasts divide into teams for a heady game of trivia. You can down a steeply discounted cocktail like their famous hurricane for some liquid knowledge. That's how most of us made it through college, after all.

Deal: Extended Happy Hour starting at 7 p.m., and half off selected menu items.
Win: Gift cards. Cha-ching!
10 p.m., 3064 Grand Ave., Miami, 305-444-5270,
