Young Architect Celebrity Michael Riscica is Special Guest at the Architects League of Northern New Jersey EPiC Trivia Contest

EPiC ARE Trivia was executed by ALNNJ Board and EPiC Member, Grace Friedhoff, AIA



Thursday, April 19, the Architects League of Northern New Jersey hosted a fun game of EPiC ARE Trivia for all its members.  Board Trustee and EPiC member Grace Friedhoff, AIA, led the game, which was held at the Paramus Showroom of Design Within Reach. DWR provided AIA members with a wonderful dinner, refreshment bar and showroom tours. Daring members divided up into 3 teams, each including one associate who is currently studying and testing, while the spectators crowded ’round.

While everything seemed fair and reasonable as the game rolled through three rounds of 5 questions each, it turned out that one of the contestants was none other than celebrity founder of Young Architect, Michael Riscica!  While that may seem like one team had an unfair advantage, there was no stopping ALNNJ second vice president, William J. Martin’s winning team!
