If Leslie Knope has taught us anything — and, the former Deputy Director of Pawnee, Indiana's Parks and Recreation Department turned City Councillor has taught us many, many, things — it's that Galentine's Day is the best day of the year. And while February 13 has long been and gone, Monday, August 27 might turn out to be just great thanks to The Elizabeth Picture Theatre's Parks & Rec trivia night. Here's hoping that the cinema is firing up a few waffle irons in celebration.
It's bound to be just as exciting as the time Leslie met Joe Biden. Or when Ben Wyatt invented The Cones of Dunshire. Or any occasion where Ron Swanson drank Lagavulin whisky. If you were to ask Chris Traeger, he'd likely say that answering trivia questions is literally his favourite thing to do. Andy Dwyer would probably sing a version of "Candle in the Wind" about it, and April Ludgate would either stand in the corner and glare, or try to convince you that she's a witch. As for Donna Meagle, she's too busy live-tweeting the Death Canoe film series.
If you know all of the above like you know that breakfast food is the best kind of food, then you'd better show your love for one of the best sitcoms ever made — and yes, there'll be prizes. Maybe you'll win all of the bacon and eggs that Brisbane has. If you lose, maybe you'll have to change your name to Jerry/Garry/Larry/Terry. Either way, it all kicks off at 6.30pm and entry costs $5, which you can then put towards a food and/or drink purchase at the cinema.
