I had been stopping by Hillside occasionally for a while, always enjoying myself. I am a beer and a shot kind of guy and they have plenty of both there. Service was always good and there was a good mix of friendly regulars and people from the neighborhood, like myself. Chill atmosphere and free peanuts didn't hurt either.What brought my rating up to 5 stars was their trivia night. My friends and I had been looking for a trivia night on the Hill that worked with our schedule. Hillside has one the first Wednesday of every month. We tried it a few times and LOVED it! The questions were a good mix of easy and challenging. There were 3 rounds. Some specific categories and some random. The winning team received the cash pot from the entry fees. What we really liked was that the team that came in last won a free pitcher of Olympia beer. We almost considered bombing just to get the free beer. 🙂The host is entertaining and fun. We have gone twice now and will definitely be back! Even if you are not into trivia, Hillside is a great place to have some cocktails with good friends and maybe even make a few new ones.
