Thursday 28th April

Freezing, snowing and wet. Must be nearly May. Tonight’s quizzes are the last of the month so it’s your last chance to play Dead Pool for May. If the weather continues like this, it will be a wonder if ANYONE survives till June.

Great jackpots tonight though, so if you’re going to win one before you pop, tonight would be a good time to do it.

Cellar Monkey (Argyle Bar), 7pm

Jackpot: £200

Cheat: One of the music round answers is Kelly Llorenna (see video below)

Newsroom, 9pm

Jackpot: Also £200

Cheat: One of the answers tonight is Aberdeen. I know that’s depressing but on’t worry, it’s only one question.

Monday 25th April, 2016

Quizzes tonight offer you the chance to break out of your shell, like a gay tortoise coming out for the first time and heading straight to a hot disco in 1978 Manhattan.

Brass Monkey Leith, 7pm

Jackpot: After the £200 bange last Monday we are back to £50. Hey!

Cheat: One of the music round answers tonight is OMI. Video at the bottom of this post. I had pure never heard of the cunt but he’s got half a billion views on youtube just for this song and apparently it was number one in just about every country. Hey-ho, what the fuck do I know?

Safari Lounge, 9pm

Jackpot: Tonight’s jackpot is £60

Cheat: One of tonight’s answers is a JAGUAR. Raaar.

Sunday 24th April

So yesterday I had a wee football away day (Berwick v East Fife) and got subsequently pished. This means that I will be less sharp tonight, and may be prone to marking errors.

If you come too close I might still smell a bit of booze.

If none of that puts you off, then here’s the detail for this evening’s quizzes:

Persevere, 6pm

Jackpot: £210

Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round tonight is Olivia

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm

Biggest jackpot of the week is at the Tolbooth tonight.

Jackpot: £270

Cheat: One of the music round clips is from 80s superstars Kajagoogoo

Thursday 21st April

Quizzes tonight both carry a prizey jackpot megatotal of £150 each so you could come out of this party with three tonna wonga, if you play it and play it good.

Argyle Bar (Cellar Monkey) , 7pm

Jackpot: £150

Cheat: One of the music round clips is by Dave Gahan, who used to be the singer out of Depeche Mode. It’s a bit fucking obscure to be honest, but that’s why you like reading this – clues you in on some of the difficult ones. Puts you one step ahead of da noobs. Video below.

Newsroom, 9pm

Jackpot: Also £150

Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is “Bride Wars“. Ach, you probably knew that one already but if you didn’t then that’s a gift from me.

Speaking of gifts, I hope the mystery prizes are better than last night’s Kung-Fu Panda Whoopee Cushion. That may have been a new low.

Here’s the Dave Gahan vid:

Wednesday 20th April 2016

Quizzes tonight have that midweek smell of booze and success. Who knows. Maybe I’ll stay out tonight at the Monkey and DJ hot hits until I get slung out at one in the morning with the other drunks…

The Joker & The Thief, 7pm

Jackpot: £60

Cheat: One of the picture round answers is “The Smiths“. Brigid will get that one, easy.

The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Jackpot: £60

Cheat one of the music round bits is a band called Alphabeat. See video below. Decent for a modern pop thing. Probably because it’s very 80s. The youtube comments say “90s” but I reckon its more 80s. Anyway it came out in 2010 and I’ve just read that they are Danish which explains a lot.
