If the brain is, as is often said, a muscle, then the best way to keep it in tip-top working order is by giving it a regular workout. Quiz nights are easily the most enjoyable way to test your memory and show off the wealth of knowledge stored in that gray matter. There are plenty of quiz nights to choose from, many of which are worthwhile fundraisers, so rally friends or colleagues and pick your cause.
