How do you make one trivia night stand out from all the trivia on all the weeknights in all of Charlotte? Give a drag queen the mic. Lana Cane hosts trivia at Petra’s the second Tuesday of every month, starting each show with a monologue. Questions are a grab bag of local history, current events, and entertainment—and you get bonus points for drinking. It’s not for the easily offended.
