New Quiz

The Argyle Bar is an old quiz that’s a new quiz.

I’ve been doing the Argyle downstairs for years on a Thursday but it has now switched to Monday night at 9pm in the ground-floor bar – aka upstairs.

The host is Kerry who is already doing a great job at two other quizzes and she’s looking forward to meeting you all at 9pm tonight.

To be clear: it’s still the Dr Paul quiz format – still the quiz you love but with a fresh new face rather than my tawdry old chat.

If you still want my tawdry old chat – I’m available at the other two quizzes tonight.


Here is the music round cheat for tonight which applies to the Brass Monkey Leith:

Gareth Gates – pop star

Is Gareth Gates still a pop star? Do you reckon he has it on his business card?

Gareth Gates

Pop Star

0773 168 1450

Parties and Functions

Does he do weddings? Does he do summer season in Tenerife?

I’ll tell you who does do summer season in Tenerife is Frank who used to drink at (and work in) the Persevere. He’s away out there living the dream and having a great time. I enjoy his updates on Facebook.

As fro Gareth Gates, a quick Wiki finds this as his latest listed work:

” During spring 2017 Gates appeared in Robin Hood Easter Panto at various locations within the United Kingdom.”

So now you know.

See ya later – x

Thursday Pub Quiz – Enormous Jackpot at Newsroom Tonight

The jackpot has reached terra incognita at the Newsroom. We are now buzzing at £350. Win it tonight.

7pm – Argyle Bar & Cellar. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Iraq.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £350. Cheat: Grace Jones is in the music round (see vid below).

I always tell people that the Newsroom is the thickest pub of the week and definitely the right place to come if you want to win money.

It’s not strictly true about the thick thing. It’s just that the Newsroom attracts staff-nights-out and the like where people are maybe not one hundred per cent quiz-focussed.

So if you know the quiz and how it goes, you usually do have a bit of an advantage over these passers-by. And it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but most people who come from other quizzes end up liking the Newsroom when they come. Tonight would be a good night to try it.

Giles Angels, for example, started off quizzing at the Joker but have found the Newsroom a happy hunting-ground. Maybe they’ll win the money tonight? We’ll see…

By the way, Grace Jones was what it was all about in the eighties. No one was more aloof, untouchable, and supreme as the Jones.

That was the image anyway. I had one of her albums. It was all right.
