Due to licensing battles between NBC and Netflix regarding their own streaming services, Netflix will lose their rights to The Office in Canada in late 2020. If that news upsets you, then maybe Distrikt Night Club’s Office Trivia Night is the competition for you. 

If not, check out a historic story-telling night at Hermann’s, a swing-dancing night at the Victoria Event Centre, or a few of the other great events happening in and around Victoria today!

This time around, learn about Jack the Ripper — the most infamous murderer in modern history — and ask yourself if he was either a member of the royal family or someone acting at their behest.
