A trivia-less Oracle OpenWorld this year?

I likes to play me the NTN Buzztime trivia when I travel, and last year I lucked out, because I discovered a place to play trivia during Oracle OpenWorld 2008 - namely, the Beale St. Bar & Grill.

Sadly, I won't be able to repeat the experience. The Beale St. Bar & Grill has apparently dropped NTN Buzztime trivia.

As of now, there are only two places in the city that offer the game, and both are over a mile away from the Oracle festivities - the Kezar Pub on 770 Stanyan, and Mad Dog in the Fog on 530 Haight. I could conceivably take the N Judah line to the Haight, but if I'm going to do that, I'm going to head out to the Sunset District. (Personal thing.)

So, unless something changes, the only trivia that I'll be considering during the week of Oracle OpenWorld will be the true TPC numbers for the Exadata 2.
