Bring your family and friends to form your own team of 4–6 people, or come solo and get paired with a group of fellow trivia buffs. Our host, Mark Levy––better known as The Tourfather––will take the helm, guiding us through a series of questions spanning three captivating categories: bodies and bars, statues and seaport, and squares and pairs..
