Edinburgh Wednesday: Terrific Quizzes in Excellent Pubs

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Walrus (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Jethro Tull (pic round)

Another two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are over a hundred quid each and getting bulbuous and exciting like something organic and bursty.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Jethro Tull, the band that named themselves after the man who invented the seed drill.

The video’s a bit ropey, but.

Meanwhile, here’s what people look like when they win the quiz. Clock the satisfaction:

Yo!

Dr P

Sunday Pub Quizzes in Leith and The Old Town

Tonight:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: PJ Harvey (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Brunei (pic round)

I love that PJ Harvey song. Something about it. Especially that brass and that autoharp or whatever it is. Jingle jangle (but in a good way, not an evil way). And parp.

Wednesday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Kylie Minogue (pic round)

8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £60. Cheat: ELO (music round -see below)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Duran Duran (music round – see below)

The ELO song at Harmonium is this one:

Not their best song, but ELO are the kings of the universe. If you have a spare 45 minutes, listen to Time, the greatest album ever written.

Meanwhile, the Duran Duran song at Brass Monkey tonight is this one. A real belter, one that can’t have justice done to it from a twenty-second music round clip.

The video is very Duran, but before they had the budget for ‘Rio’.

Sunday Boom Quiz Edinburgh Shackalacka

Great stuff later today:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Jessica Simpson is in the picture round

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £90. Cheat: The music round includes Galantis. See vid below. It’s got a woman in it who’s actually an electronic cat or something.

If you come to both quizzes tonight you could walk away with £210.

I just had a look on ebay to see what you could get for that kind of money.

Behold:

A shit load of steel stillages. I don’t even know what stillages are. But you can have them. Now!

Last Ever Quiz Under Murderous Tory Regime Of Hate

Well, you never know. Corbyn might be PM this time tomorrow. Get to the pub!

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot : £120. Cheat: One of the music round artistes tonight is 3 Doors Down. See vid below to hear song.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat: One of the answers in the pic round is The BBC

I’ve just listened to this song. It’s really awful. It’s like it’s been put together by a committee of Tories and Lib Dems and performed by some radge out of UKIP.

If you like this music it’s because you are fundamentally a bad person.

Think about your life choices, for the sake of GOD.

Sunday Best

Are you wearing fashion to the quiz tonight? Or just clothes? Not that it matters. I won’t judge. It would be nice thought, wouldn’t it, if everyone turned up with smart clothes on now and again. Ooooh.

Sunday – 6pm, The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: There is a band named Bombay BIcycle Club  in the music round. It’s a load of hipster shite but some of you young ones might like ’em. See video below to hear the song and giver yourself a wee edge in one of the rounds.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £120. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is an old film called “Be Cool

I’m looking forward to tonight, it’s the first time for ages that the Sunday jackpots have both been over £100 on the same night.

You know you can get a number 35 bus directly from the Percy quiz to the Tolbooth quiz and get there in plenty of time?

Amaze! Gosh! That’s what I do some weeks when I’m not cycling…

Wednesday Quiz News

Quizzes otnight:

7pm The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: They Might Be Giants are in the music round. See vid below to hear the song.

9pm – Brass Monkey (Drummond Street). Jackpot £120. Cheat: George Clinton is in the picture round.

They Might Be Giants early-career album tracks turn up now again in my music rounds. It’s a personal taste thing. There’s no reason why you should know them.

Giving this out as a cheat is an attempt to redress the balance between too-hard-how-the-fuck-should-I-know-that and i-ken-that.

Thanks.

Thursday Night Is Quiz Night

Come along tonight and find out your future.

7pm – Argyle Bar & Cellar. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: There is a Finishing Trowel in the picture round.

9pm – Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat: The music round includes Harold Faltemeyer. See video below.

Last Thursday at the Newsroom was epic. The recently-minted team known as The Dandy Narwhals were successful where it counted, getting 8-out-of-8 on the money round just as it was £350 night.

Amazingly, so did five other people. Amazingly, one of them got exactly the same same close-but-wrong answer on the tiebreaker.

So it went down to sudden-death trivia for £350 and it was the Dandies what won it. But not after several nerve-shattering questions. Amazing.

Here’s the video for the music round cheat. It’s dead 80s.

Jackpot: In amongst the heaving youth, there will be £120 ready for the plucking. Turn up with half a brain and you’re halfway there. Like Jon Bon Jovi.

Cheat: The music round includes this clanking of slice of shite by Howard Jones, from what is known as my “youth”:

Not cool? Well, it’s all we had in 1984. That and the Eurythmics. I could never work out whether the Eurythmics were cool or arse. Bit of both, I suppose.

Here is a picture of someone winning at the quiz, hopefully this will inspire you to be like them!
