Trivia night: that magical time when your friends might actually start to like you more for your embarrassing array of obscure/useless knowledge. Because, well, sometimes it's a hard life for a nerd.

Luckily, we understand. Which is why we've hunted high and low, spent countless hours trivia training (OK, watching The Simpsons) and picked friends based solely on their response time. Ladies and gents, we've uncovered the most interesting nights of trivia the ATL—places where even when your team loses, you still win.

(But not actually. You don't get a prize or anything, this is a different kind of winning, it's in your heart and such.)

The Highlander
Sunday at 8 p.m.
This rough-around-the-edges dive bar keeps the libations (and high-quality eats) flowing, which should help you through those tougher questions. Note: We're not saying you'd reign victorious, but if you had some Simpsons knowledge stuffed in your back pocket? Well, it might help.

Battle And Brew
Wednesday at 8:30 p.m.
This is Geek Trivia at its most obscure: Transformers, Monty Python and video games are all fair game, as long as you called to reserve your table ahead of time. And whether you rise to glorious trivia triumph, or need to drown your sorrows in one of many games, you're still a winner to us. Probably.

The Republic Social House
Thursday at 9 p.m.
Dirty South Trivia brings you sex, drugs and rock 'n roll—no, not literally. (Sorry.) These questions range from the geeky obscurities only a nerd would know to the music and lifestyle tidbits you wish you didn't have to fess up to knowing. But you like to win, so spit it.

Diesel Filling Station
Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
Hosted by Dirty South Trivia, these are queries built with the lovable nerd in mind. Math, Internet Humor and Star Wars are all fair game. You've been warned.
