Trivial Pursuits

Quick! Can you name 10 countries in Africa that begin and end with a consonant? How about the temperature at which both the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales read the same?

Even if you're not smarter than a fifth grader, at least your partner won't be humiliated by your answer. Unlike, say, on Fox's frightening Moment of Truth, no loved ones will disown you for playing Smart Ass Trivia at Nellie's. Hosted by Andy "Ice Ice Baby" Austin and Josh "Brrr It's Cold" Housdan, Smart Ass Trivia is as fun as its name suggests -- and it's a team sport, too, so it doesn't matter if you don't know the answer as long as someone on your creatively named team does. (Watch out for the Erotic Photo Hunters.) So the more the Nellier! You do have to make it the right answer and not just an educated guess in the final round, or you'll wipe out -- and then a loved one just might disown your dumb ass. The winning team, on the other hand, earns money off its tab. Thought that would get your attention.

Smart Ass got started at Titan (RIP), but it's really taken off in the three weeks it's called Nellie's home. It's definitely more at home at Nellie's, with a focus on food (you can eat and be a smart ass!) and sports (you can watch a televised game and be a smart ass!) and sportsmanship (hey, stop being such a smart ass!). Half the fun is identifying the music played between rounds, which always relates to an answer in the previous round. Why are they playing "Breakfast at Tiffany's?" Oh, right, because it was performed by one-hit-wonder Deep Blue Something -- and Deep Blue was the chess-playing computer that beat Garry Kasparov. Score! Game times are 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. every Wednesday. So haul your smart ass over to Nellie's for some trivial pursuits!
