WorldQuest - One Night in Bollywood -SOLD OUT
Members and Guests Only

Thursday, August 10, 2017 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM


SOLD OUT: Our 2017 WorldQuest, the annual funfest for Council members and guests, goes to India for its theme and takes us into the magical, musical and fun world of Bollywood, that dance-filled and celebrated element of Indian cinema.

And we will do it with style! Wear your favorite Bollywood costume or create one – there’s a contest! -- and bring your best game of international trivia to this annual incredible night of entertainment, conversation and demonstration of your brainpower!

Join us on Thursday August 10, at the Hotel Crescent Court, our traditional WorldQuest sponsor. The evening begins with the 6:30 p.m. registration and reception. The contest starts at 7:30 p.m.

Thanks to the hotel’s culinary experts, our reception will feature special foods and drinks that perfectly accent a fun theme associated with India and Bollywood.

Our moderators for the evening? The infamous trivia hosts, Geeks Who Drink.

Here’s how to participate in this foreign affairs trivia contest: Form a team of four people and compete for prizes and Bollybragging rights.

Enter a team of four for $70 or buy a single ticket for $25 and we’ll put you on a team of four to compete.

And, remember, we give prizes for the best team name! Creativity is celebrated at WorldQuest on this Bollywood Night!

How fun is a Big D Bollywood Night? We’ll quote the British film star Indira Varma: “I love the challenge of doing something new! Bollywood is magical!”
