TriviaNightAd-1Wednesday night at Bushbaby Restaurant and Lounge, located at 1197 Fulton Street, The Brooklyn Reader, in partnership with the Bed-Stuy Gateway Business Improvement District, hosted the 3rd in a series of Brooklyn Trivia nights around Bed-Stuy.

The game night is a fun way to highlight local establishments while bringing neighbors together for a light-hearted competition that tests how well you really know your borough.

Participants were provided 10 questions in ascending order of difficulty testing their Kings County acumen. DJ Dick at Night was in the house, spinning fresh tunes, getting the crowd amped!

Here are some of the questions asked on Wednesday.

1. Q: What’s the name of Brooklyn most famous and historic cemetery, where you’ll find ballplayers, musicians, statesmen and others buried?

2. Q: Name at least two CUNY colleges in Brooklyn?

3. Q: What major pharmaceutical company was founded in Brooklyn in 1869 and had a manufacturing plant in the borough for many years? Once employing thousands of workers, the plant shut down in 2008.

This week's winner, Bryant, with Bushbaby's owner, "Tee"

    Do you mean Friday the 28th?
    Or Monday the 24th?
