A correspondent notes that K&K has moved from Green Lake to the Carnegie Library building on Market Street in Ballard.

A slice of Australia and New Zealand in the heart of Seattle, the Kangaroo & Kiwi is a raucous bar on Aurora Avenue a stone's throw from Green Lake, dedicated to all things antipodean.

Trivia at the Kangaroo & Kiwi is characterized by a festive, convivial atmosphere, in contrast to the heads-down, test-taking vibe that prevails at some other quiz nights; it's the place to go if you want to mingle a bit with people who aren't on your team. When we visited in July, there were still tables available around 8, with things looking a lot dicier by 8:15. There are 10 rounds of 40 questions each, plus—when we were there anyway—a 25-question picture round that can really make or ruin a team's chances. Questions range from easy to impossible; some of the questions weren't as rigorous as we might have hoped—for example, the question asking us to spell the name of Hezbollah, the Lebanese guerilla organization. (Technically, it's spelled "حزب الله‎". "Hezbollah" is the most common English transliteration of the Arab, but by no means the only one.) From time to time the quizmasters will award a T-shirt to the first person to shout out the answer to a bonus question. If you know the answer, say it loud and say it proud: late in the evening we were the only ones who could correctly identify a caricature of Drea de Matteo, of The Sopranos and Joey, but no one heard us over the increasingly juiced crowd, and so the shirt went unclaimed. We're still bitter.
