Monday 15th Feb. Post Valentines Non Apocalypse

Did you survive Valentine’s? Are you still single? Are you a double?

Whichever bond-status you currently get filed under, we’re all to fucking happy to see you at the Brass Monkey Leith. Gender? Colour? Number of people you have regular sex between zero and one million? We don’t care about none of all that. See you tonight.

Brass Monkey Leith 7pm

Jackpot: There was a winner last week so this week we are at £50

Cheat news: one of the answers tonight is Bhutan

Valentine’s Day = Quiz

Solid Reasons

  1. Taking a girl to a quiz is ROMANTIC
  2. Taking a gut to a quiz is ROMANTIC
  3. Displaying the depth of you facts is ATTRACTIVE
  4. Quiz action has been scientifically correlated as FOREPLAY

Caveat

  1. If you take your date to the quiz but are rubbish at the quiz then you may not get a “happy ending”

Anyway: TONIGHT look like this:

6pm Persevere

Jackpot: £60 in sexy cash

Cheat: One of the answers in the list round can be Luxembourg

8pm Tolbooth Tavern

Jackpots: There’s £80 in the main pot and £40 in Head-to-Head, so total =  £220

Planet of The Jackpots

I’ve given away more than £700 since last Thursday. Early January was pretty sparse for jackpots but most of them seem to have been landed at the same time.

Anyway, life moves on and we have £60 plus £30 tonight,

The Joker & The Thief, 7pm

The newest pub on the Dr Paul circuit is a weird little booze hole on Elm Row (parto f Letih Walk). The trick is that it’s so nice once you get inside that it is almost impossible to leave. People have gone missing for weeks in there.

Jackpot: £60

Cheat: one of the answers tonight is Giglio. What’s Giglio? You’ll remember Giglio was the scene  of this disaster which is, amazingly, four years ago now.

The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) 9pm

Jackpot: £30

Cheat: One of the songs in the music round is by The Damned who were a 70s/80s punk band but this was their biggest hit, a huge pop classic reworking of an old 60s number. One of the best covers of all time, I reckons (despite the relative shite-ness of the This Top of The Pops lip-sync moment):

 

Meanwhile, here’s some of the cash, and the cash winners of the last week :
