Dance Marathon will hold its weekly trivia event at new venue 27 Live for the first time on Wednesday night.

The trivia nights, in which students can raise money for their DM teams, were previously held at Buffalo Wild Wings, 1741 Maple Ave. The restaurant has been planning since July to relocate to Skokie.

27 Live, 1012 Church St., will allow DM to hold trivia in a separate room designed for concerts and special events, venue owner John Tasiopoulos said.

“We’re very excited to host this,” Tasiopoulos said. “When we locked the deal we were very pleased, it was a perfect fit for them and for us.”

DM spokesman Ross Gordon said 27 Live gives the philanthropy a bigger room and a projector.

“We fell in love with the location,” the Medill senior said.

DM held its “Farewell to Bdubs” trivia event at Buffalo Wild Wings earlier this month.

“The location has been a fantastic partner throughout the last couple of years,” Gordon said. “We’re sad to see Buffalo Wild Wings go for sure, but we’re really excited about opening up this new trivia chapter in NUDM’s life.”
