Do you know the name of the Missourian with the nickname "the peanut guy?" Can you name the Kansas City company that introduced the crock-pot? Did you know that two Missourians helped save the global wine industry?
Here's a chance for all you foodies, trivia buffs, food historians, and those who just like to eat to rejoice and connect over a friendly game of trivia that will test your knowledge of food-related topics! Join KCUR's Natasha Bailey and Jenny Vergara on October 19 at Casual Animal Brewery for a Trivia Launch Party for Season Two of "Hungry for MO," a podcast that brings you the stories behind iconic foods in the state of Missouri.
We've got food trivia ready to serve alongside a preview of what to expect in the second season. And $2 from every pint of Casual Animal's The Local Motive beer (a cold IPA!) purchased goes back to support KCUR programming.
The first five teams to register will have a spot held for them. Additional Teams will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. There is no entry fee, but we recommend bringing one non-perishable food item per contestant to be donated to UMKC's Kangaroo Pantry at the Dr. Raj Bala Agrawal CARE Center.
This program is made possible in partnership with KCUR 89.3, UMKC, and Missouri Humanities.
