Brand new this year!

Ask Me Another is the rambunctious live show from NPR that mixes trivia games with comedy and music to make an hour evening of mind-boggling fun. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites guests, celebrities, and listeners alike to take on various quizzes - all while being serenaded by house musician Julian Velard and challenged by puzzle guru Cecil Baldwin.
Bring your friends out for drink and a night of stupidly smart fun and be part of the lively audience as NPR broadcasts and podcasts this favorite game night from Nantucket.
