Swedish blokes are un-nerving, decisive, strong and unwavering.
This folk-knowledge was proven last night at Reverie by Ben, a patriotic Swede in a yellow T-Shirt who took Von Rumpy Pumpy’s wine-winning star team performance and turned it into a personal triumph by battering through the cash challenges and effortlessly earning £60.
Nice jokes round too. We had all sorts of gentle comedy gold that we didn’t have to read out the ones about AIDS and gang rape. These are available by email on request.
Next Monday the REverie jackpot starts again at twenty new quiz pounds. See you there.
Your friendly neighbourhood Southside local, The Reverie rocks on Monday nights. Despite the sexy, mysterious dancing of Alex last week, the jackpot remained intact and we’re playing for £60 tonight. Free entry
Note – tonight is bring-your-mum night. Any team that brings their mum will get a bonus point!
Four teams battled it out at the SCH last night, including a pair of Israelis who came last but definitely scored the highest ever score by an Israeli team at the quiz.
In the end, it was NORWEGIAN CHEESE who took the title, ruthlessly pouncing on the mistakes of the G&T’s like a tiger on a chicken. The vodka was theirs.
And this week, the G & T’s didn’t even have an Irish element in the team to take the blame.
I’ve heard the bar is getting a refurb which will make it more like a ‘style bar’ and less like a hotel foyer. This will be happening in December. Quiz moves to Thursday next week for one week and then we’ll be back in January.
The well-bred environs of South-Central Edinburgh rocked to the power of a man last night, and that man was Alex.
His team, the FENNEL FRONTIER had drawn for first place, but Alex took the bull by the horns and spat in the opposition’s chips by inventing a new type of dancing which had never been seen in the First World.
Alex refused to stop there and won through to the ultimate question but unfortunately that’s where his luck ran out.
Phil Collins, destroyer of worlds, was victorious again and the rollover is £60 for next Monday. Beast.
By the way, I didn’t get any film of Alex’s style but here’s a flashback from the old days in Glasgow featuring dance-off another legend… George.
