Well, all of San Francisco politics is trivial, isn't it? Get that confirmed at tonight's 4th Annual Political Trivia Contest, featuring Chris "Whiskers" Daly, Ross Mirkarimi, and Jake McGoldrick, at a benefit for the John Muir PTA, for a spelling bee for the Western Addition. Categories of questions include: "Streets (and Transportation) of San Francisco," "Interesting Characters of San Francisco," and, in a bracing slap of reality, "Only Trivia That A Policy Wonk Would Know." $5, 7-9 p.m., Temple Bar, 800 Polk (x Turk), $5. Oooh, we hope SFist is featured in the questions! "Give one of the fake names that Peter Ragone posted under on SFist.com."
