Why Richmond Is Awesome Presents:

Thursday Night Trivia

Halloween Spooktacular Extravaganza!




What is it? A Super Special Edition of Virtual Thursday Night Trivia.

When is it? Thursday, October 29th, 7:30pm until about 9:30 or 10:00pm; trivia will go until we finish all 6 rounds.

*If you can’t join us at the start time of 7:30, that is okay; join anytime before 9:30pm and pick up playing in the middle of any round. The longer you play, the more chances you have to win!*

Where Do I Play? On YouTube! Go to youtube.com/whyrichmondisawesome anytime after 7:00pm on the night of the 29th, get the room code, sign in and get ready.

Why Should I Play? Over 50+ local businesses are giving out over 180+ gift cards and prizes valued at $7000+! And the best part is most prizes will be given out at random throughout the night just for playing!

See below for all of the businesses participating.


Limited to the first 500 people to join the trivia game. How do you join? Find the live stream at youtube.com/WhyRichmondIsAwesome and enter the room code, set up a team name & enter your email so we know where to email you your gift cards.

Room code to join will go live at 7:00pm so join the live stream ASAP to ensure your spot for playing. Your hosts Lauren & Alex Glaser of The Glaser Group Realtors will hop on the live stream around 7:15pm so join early and have a drink with us before the game starts!

Bad at trivia? It is okay. We are too. (That is why we host 😜). Good news though, almost all the prizes will be given out at random throughout the game just for playing.

Good at Trivia? Show us how much of a smarty pants you are! 1st, 2nd & 3rd place of each round wins a prize pack and the overall highest combined score at the end of all 6 rounds wins a Bonus Prize valued at over $500!!!

Want a text reminder so you do not forget to play? Simply text 804-223-2032 “Boo” and we will text you a reminder to play the afternoon on the 29th.

Worried we may cap out our 500 person limit before you log on? Want a guaranteed entry to play? Donate at least $10 to Richmond Animal League and forward your confirmation email to trivia@whyrichmondisawesome.com and we will add you to our VIP list. We will email you the room code at 6pm and you will be able to log in starting at 6:45pm. That is a full 15 minutes before anyone else will even know the room code! Plus that donation is a write off for you and will help local homeless cats and dogs. Now that is a WIN WIN situation.

Logging in to the game will be similar to our normal trivia and as shown in the above video. Only difference is the game will be 6 rounds, 10 questions per round and you will not have to log in again between rounds/games. The program we use will automatically take you from round to round.

Each round’s questions will have a different theme. Each round will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize pack and then we will give out a TON of prizes at random between every round. Overall theme of the night and individual round themes for the question sets are a mystery until we go live (ooooohhhh spooky!) but we promise it will be tons of fun so join us for as much of the extravaganza as you can.

If you want to get a feel for how our special Holiday Trivia is different than our normal weekly Thursday Night Trivia, please check out the almost 4th of July Special re-run to get a better idea.

So what does your regular Thursday Night Trivia look like and how is it different?

Glad you asked. Head over to whyrichmondisawesome.com/thursday-night-trivia for more details on what normal Thursday night looks like and join Trivia Club while you are at it. We have two virtual games every Thursday at 7:30pm & 8:30pm and we hope you join us every week moving forward! 😁


Trick or Treat! We normally have trivia questions about our sponsors during trivia. Links to their websites are below if you want to explore and learn more about all of these amazing local businesses!

The Richmond Experience was founded by Samantha and Sean Kanipe in 2017. When they moved to Richmond several years ago, they struggled to find things to do and places to go, and relied a lot on Yelp and Google, which were often overwhelming and didn’t give them the kind of local insight they craved. They wanted a resource that gave them insider info and that was more curated towards the kind of activities and places they wanted to experience. From this, The Richmond Experience was born – first as an Instagram account, and now to a full-fledged membership program. For their members, their goal is to be that amazing friend who always knows what’s going on, where to go and when to get the best deals.

Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches was founded by husband and wife team, Xavier Meers and Hannah Pollack. A native of Belgium and 25-year veteran chef, Xavier came to the States to open and run restaurants and soon met Hannah, a former marine and chef herself. During a five-year restaurant run together, they created the first Nightingale ice cream sandwich as a restaurant dessert option. Soon after, they left the restaurant kitchen behind to fully embark on their new venture—one born from a love of their culinary crafts, classic desserts, and each other.

Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches are gourmet and handcrafted, so they cannot be compared to any other ice cream novelty. Each sandwich uses 14 percent butterfat ice cream, locally sourced inclusions, and hand mixed and made cookies. At first bite, you can taste the difference. Each bite brings memories of childhood, but with a sophistication in flavor that won’t be forgotten.
