Sunday 22nd May 2016 – Percy Off, Tolbooth most definitely ON

Big news is that Hibs have won the Scottish cup which mean’s tonight’s quiz at the Persevere is postponed for a week. The big Hibs parade will be going down Leith Walk in the afternoon and ending with a massive party in Leith Links, so the Percy is going to get hit hard.

Normally I’m pissed off with unforeseen cancellations but this is superb and great for everyone in Leith. Well done to the Hibees. Enjoy the fun and I’ll see you next week.

Meanwhile, the Tolbooth has its highest jackpot yet, so there’s still and excellent opportunity to put the Hibs success of yesterday in the shade by winning loads of cash for yourself.

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm

Jackpot: £300 in main pot, plus £20 head to head = £320

Cheat: One of the music round clips is by Jordin Sparks who appears to be some kind of bargain-bin Beyonce. See video:

Cheat: One of the answers tonight is Caravaggio. As you would imagine, this comes during the picture round.

You’ll be getting a lumber as a direct result, probably.
