Christnr.3 shoppers know,
"Trivial Pursuit" is on sale sit many
msjor department stores a
sign of a fad. And a regular fol
lowing of trivia tournaments in
Lincoln shows that the trivia trend
is far from over.
Three downtown bars The
Sidetrack, P.O. Pears and Ches
terfields sponsor contests.
The Sidetrack, 7th and P streets,
has had one or two trivia tour
naments every Tuesday night for
the past four years, said owner
performer Joyce Durand.
Sidetrack's version, dubbed
"Knowledge is Good," is not based
on the board game. Questions are
taken from encyclopedias and
newspapers. They include local
and current events and Biblical
questions, such as "What article
of clothing was Moses required to
remove at the Burning Bush?"
(his sandals) Durand asks the
questions and plays songs that
contestants must identify.
"Knowledge is Good" is a com
bination of "Jeopardy" and "Name
that Tune."-Contestants are even
supplied with buzzers. Everyone
in the bar gets into the games. It's
a problem keeping the often lively
audience from shouting out the
answers too soon, Durand said.
The four-year trivia tradition
at the Sidetrack has spawned
several dynasties, two-year regu
lar Doug Durand said. Durand is
no relation to the Sidetrack owner.
The trivia powers at Sidetrack
are Ed's Roommates, Ozone Green
and Q.S.O. according to Doug
Ed's Roommates were upset
Tuesday night by the Worms, a :
rookie team led by Doug Durand.
However, the Roommates remain
confident about their team's
"What we lack in talent we
make up in humor," said team
member, John Nocera, nursing
his loss with a beer.
Ed's Roomates have been play
ing the Sidetrack trivia circuit for
2i years and have won four of
five championships, said team
captain Ed Sisson.
