Hibs Cancel Percy but Tolbooth Marches On

Because of the gigantic success of the Hibs reaching the LEague Cup Final, there can be no quiz at the Persevere tonight. That’s because the boozer will be full of Hibby chaos, win or lose (particularly win). Back next Sunday.

The Tolbooth is relatively unaffected by such shenanigans and the quiz continues as usual

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm

Jackpot: £150 (this is £120 in the head-to-head and £30 in the ‘main’ jackpot)

Win £150 in Leith Tonight

OK – it’s the last Persevere quiz of the year and we have a jackpot of £150 to offer. Tremendous.

If you read this post, you get a cheat tip. Great.

Tonight’s cheat tip is that Bruce Willis crops up in the music round. The song isn’t very good, but he is primarily a film star rather than a singer. You can tell by the way he gets an uncredited singer who is actually good to do at least one of the verses for him. His voice is pretty low in the mix. It’s a cash in.
