Thursday is Venue day, which is to say that both quizzes take place in pubs which also have Fringe shows in the basement. So you can win buckets of cash and then go downstairs and laugh at the performers (in a good way or a bad way).
7pm Argyle Bar – £140 jackpot. Cheat news: one of the answers tonight is “South Korea”
9pmNewsroom – £100 jackpot. Cheat news: one of the music round hits is this old Huey Lewis number, recorded back in the times of electric pop that we used to call “the eighties”
Amazingly, Huey Lewis’s prediction has now come true as we live in a world where being a ‘hipster’ is one of the most conformist and consumer-powered things you can possibly do.
The Thursday Night Position is standing pished on the corner of The High Street and North Bridge with a wide open pizza box at 3 am, blasted look in the eyes, mouth agape at the realisation that by the time you get home it’ll be more or less time to get up for work.
As a lead-up to this, perhaps you did BOTH Thursday quizzes and came away a champion and at least there is still cash in your pocket. Anything is possible and you might even get your hole.
7pm Cellar Monkey – Jackpot £100. Cheat news: The Music round includes Bomber by Motorhead. NOTE: quiz is upstairs tonight cos downstairs is a Fringe venue for the rest of the month.
9pm Newsroom – Jackpot £50. Cheat news: one of the answers is “New Mexico”
