On the first Wednesday of the spring semester, the line to get into Top Deck extended all the way down the stairs.
Inside, the bar was buzzing with people carrying pitchers of beer to their tables and teams trying to find a space to sit — or at this point, stand.
Ben Storsved, who graduated in December, and junior Hunter Wotruba stood in the back corner of the bar, behind a laptop and sound system and under a glowing Chicago Cubs logo sign — one of many neon signs decorating Top Deck’s walls.
As the clock strikes 10 p.m., Ben leans in and speaks warmly into a microphone.
“Hello friends and welcome back to another fantastic week at Top Deck Trivia!”
