Calling all DC foodies! Do you have an appetite for trivia? If you think you’ve got a palate sophisticated enough to compete, come test your chops at the National Portrait Gallery’s collections inspired trivia game, Pop Quiz. Join us on July 31 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kogod Courtyard for a night of fun.
This month’s Pop Quiz theme is “Bon Appétrivia,” and we’ll be dishing out the details on your favorite culinary icons, from Julia Child to Alice Waters and even Elvis Presley. As American chef James Beard once said, "Too few people understand a really good sandwich." This month’s Pop Quiz celebrates those members of our collection who understood a really good sandwich and so much more. Come play and learn more about the lives of the greatest figures in food.
The Courtyard Café will be open, and snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.
Here is a sneak peek at the 10-point bonus question for this month’s Pop Quiz trivia:
