Wednesday’s Trivia Question

Maryland Matters’ trivia contest on Maryland history and politics is fast approaching. It’s Tuesday evening, March 27, in the upstairs bar at Stan & Joe’s Saloon, 37 West St., Annapolis.

We hope you can join us!

It’ll cost just $10 to participate. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the contest begins at 7 p.m. We’ll provide snacks and one drink. The rest is up to you.

Save the date…and click here to RSVP.

Please make your contribution ‘In Honor of Trivia Night’ to reserve your space.

Feel free to form teams. Or you can compete on your own. We’ll announce the subject areas in a couple of days.

To get you in practice, we’ll be asking a trivia question each day. Here’s the question we posted Tuesday:


After serving two terms on the Baltimore City Council and five terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, this Baltimore native is credited with revitalizing the NAACP after the civil rights group experienced severe financial problems.

The answer: Too easy? It’s Kweisi Mfume.

Here’s today’s question:

What is the name of the trophy given to the owner of the winning horse of the Preakness Stakes?

Check this space Thursday for the answer — and the next question! And please make plans to join us on the 27th!
