Schitt’s Creek Trivia
Free  |  8-10:30 p.m.
It was just over a month ago when we Staff Picked a “Schitt’s Creek” dance party at High Horse Bar. Oh, how we long for a time when we were able to indulge in such luxuries as an ironic, Kentucky-Canadian sitcom party. Well, the dance parties may still be on hold, but the funny Schitt must go on… Chill Bar is hosting virtual “Schitt’s Creek” trivia, featuring four rounds of trivia fun from the first five seasons of the show. If you are safely quarantined with a family member or roommate, you are allowed to play as a team.

Louisville’s annual Festival of Faiths goes online. From Wednesday to Saturday, the festival is streaming past events to its YouTube channel.
