Thursday Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat: One of the music round hits is by Three Dog Night. See vid below to hear the song.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: One of the picture round answers is ‘Gone WithThe Wind’

It’s always slightly bothered me what Three Dog Night’s band name is all about.

It’s never previously bothered me enough to actually go and look it up but that has now changed and its a fairly rewarding find. Thanks to WIkipedia I now know the following information… (until I forget it)…

Vocalist Danny Hutton‘s girlfriend, actress June Fairchild suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground while embracing a dingo (wild dog). On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and, if the night was freezing, it was a “three dog night“.
