The Reverie has been sold to G1. It will close for a while and re-open as something else. It is the end.
Tonight is the very last night of the pub and it’s the quiz. Come and join us. The jackpot is £60 and, obviously, must-be-won. If we’re lucky there might be a load of stuff to give away from the basement and maybe I can persuade Ed to put the pot up to £100 for the last night only…
Meanwhile: cheat news for tonight:
7pmBrass Monkey Leith Jackpot = £40. Cheat = music round includes Man 2 Man Meets Man Parrish (see video below)
9pmReverie Jackpot = £60. Cheat = one of the answers tonight is The Lost World

Are you here? Remember, I do also upload photos to the Dr Paul Facebook page, you you might appear on there.
First: The Porn Dwarfs winning back in Feb, and not just because Alana was displaying. They also got some questions right:
These chaps (below) won on the 31st of January and I can’t remember their name. You know I should keep these posts up to date. I know it too…
Achtung Englander! Hande Hoch! The Reverie was subject to a bit of Euro Modernism the other week where a pair of young Germans won the money against the True or False questions using the national stereotype to defeat the True or Falsewith cool rationality.
May 19th belonged to a big gang of noisy birds called the Reem Team. They were really fucking noisy but at least it’s nice to know I can make young women scream at my age.
More to follow, in the kind of a haphazard manner that would make a qualified senior librarian puke blood and shit a dictionary.
