Bi-Weekly Tuesday Trivia Night

Don't forget about our bi-weekly Tuesday Trivia night, also downstairs in the Rat. Tuesday Trivia is the brainchild of our good friend, Russ Coen.  He and our General Manager, Marlon Aranha, launched Tuesday Trivia on December 28th, 2010, and it has become an instant favorite.  Tuesday Trivia runs every other Tuesday from 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. at The Rat, unless otherwise indicated on this page.

Open Mic Night has been cancelled indefinitely due to COVID-19 restrictions. We thank all of our loyal musicians and attendees. We look forward to restarting this tradition as soon as we can!

We want to thank Alex Wolfson, our loyal Frenchtown friend & patron, who launched our weekly Open Mic Night, "The Frenchtown Underground." It was hosted by Alex, Banjo Bill, Jesse Ketchel, Rich Cahill, and a few other dedicated musicians who selflessly kept this going in The Rat for many years, and we hope that it will continue to provide a community gathering sport in Frenchtown for years to come. 

Thank you for joining us to welcome our participating musicians.  We hope to see you again at The National Hotel to listen to our next performer.
