Chandler Museum and The Ostrich host Trivia Night with ‘Hipstorian’ Marshall Shore
Cocktails and historical tales at the coolest speakeasy in the Valley
The Chandler Museum and The Ostrich Bar at the San Marcos Resort present a Trivia Night from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, hosted by Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian.
This will be the second in a series of trivia nights coordinated by the Museum and The Ostrich. Attendees will be able to enjoy delicious food and some of the best cocktails in the Valley while their knowledge of Chandler is tested. Shore will also share sordid stories of criminals and crimes that have been part of Chandler’s history
 “We are proud to continue this unique trivia night with Marshall Shore,” says Jody Crago, Museum Administrator at Chandler Museum. “It’s like a shot of sophisticated fun mixed with friendly competition, followed by a chaser of local stories and photos from the Museum’s archive.”
“Our first event was a packed house and people couldn’t stop talking about how much they loved it,” says Mike Merendino, owner of The Ostrich and upstairs restaurant Crust. “This second evening promises to be just as entertaining. Come and find out if Al Capone really did stay at the San Marcos.”
The Ostrich is located in the basement of Crust, at 10 N. Marcos Place, in downtown Chandler. In addition to cocktails created by celebrated mixologist Brandon Casey, some of the savory bites that have made Crust a foodie destination will also be on the menu.
Reservations are required for teams of four to six to take part in the fun. For more information or to make reservations, go to or call 480-917-4903.

Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian.
Marshall Shore’s passion is uncovering the weird, the wonderful and the obscure treasures from our past: the semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today. Marshall uses storytelling magic, found film footage, old photographs, ephemera and artifacts to bring our state’s heritage to life in entertaining and educational presentations.
The Ostrich
Located directly below Crust Chandler, the Ostrich is a neighborhood craft cocktail lounge inspired by the rich history dating back to the city’s founding days of 1912. After nearly a year of renovations and excavations, the Ostrich is making a name for itself around the Valley as a destination for the best cocktails in town. The Ostrich is open Wednesday through Saturday, 7 p.m. to midnight. If the light at the top of the stairs is on, we’re open.
