New Quiz

The Portobello Tap is a brand new quiz in a brand new pub in good old-fashioned Porty.

The seaside bit of Edinburgh has always been a cool place to go but now it’s a cool place to live and the increasing amount of cool people have forced the High Street to open a cool pub.

That pub is the Portobello Tap and they’re so cool that they have booked Kerry to come and present the DP Quiz every Monday night.

They do burgers till ten. Go and check it out, win the inaugural quiz and become an all time legend.

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:

Dua Lipa – unconvincing attitude pose

It’s Dua Lipa. I’m not convinced by this song and video of hers.

If you really want to communicate to an ex-lover the idea that you “don’t give a fuck”, what’s the best way to do it?

Is it to ignore them?

Or is it to write and record a pop song, and create an accompanying pop video that features full-blown costume, make-up, dancers and choreography?

Anyway – what do I know?

The second featured music round clue for tonight relates to the Safari Lounge. It is this:

I’m more comfortable with this. It’s the boys from OMD, cutting about in a nice piece of industrial decline.

When the video for this song was shot (1980), you could find these disused factories everywhere. There were about six of them on every street.

You could play in there all day and neither your parents nor Jimmy Savile could ever find you.

Happy days.

See ya later – x

NEW QUIZ for TUESDAYS! – starting tonight

Brand New Pub Quiz in Edinburgh Tonight:

On the back of continuing success in Musselburgh, Kerry now brings you Tuesday nights in the Canonmills area… at brand new pub O’Connor’s

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £100. (one-off special jackpot for opening night only) Cheat: Supergrass(music round)

This is a new night. You can say you were at the very first quiz at O’Connor’s. And to make it extra-festive, top boss Christy is putting up a one-time-only £100 jackpot.

I’m not a hundred per cent sure of the deal but I THINK we’re saying this hundred pounds MUST BE WON.

Now, opening nights tend to be a little quiet, so that’s good odds. Get your ass to Canonmills.

If you don’t live in North Edinburgh you might not know where Canonmills is. It’s basically at the bottom of Broughton Street – where Rodney Street meets Broughton Road.

The number 8 bus goes there and so does the 36. The 23 and the 27 pass nearby. It’s a fucking great wee part of town.

As ever, I’ll post a cheat on the day. Tonight’s cheat is for the music round and it’s 90s rockers Supergrass. This is what the song sounds like:

The Grass

So come on and get your North Edinburgh Tuesday night vibe moving. Do it!

If you do know the area, you might already know that O’Connor’s is an entirely new business, having taken over the space that used to be ‘The Other Place’

The Other Place was all right but O’Connor’s is going to be loads better and that is OFFICIAL

Word.
