Monday Night Is Quiz Night

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: English  (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Cookie Crew (music round)

Hey! Rollovers have been a bit thin on the ground at the Brass Monkey Leith during August and September, so tonight is the first time we’ve hit £150 at that lovely boozer since June.

Celebrate this landmark by coming down and winning the money. Also, there is a rollover at the Safari which is “only” £60. OMG. First World Problems.

Anyway – to help you win at the Safari here’s the Music round cheat:

Oh yes. This is the tune. One of my favourites of 87/88 and one of the first tunes where I realised that pop music was more about dance than about poetry.

Proper No, so it is. The piano = mmmmm,

Thanks to everyone who supported the PROF last night while I was engaged in a large quiz at the National Museum on Chambers Street. Sounded like it went well.

By the way if you use reddit at all – check out this post and tell ’em!

Best places for a pub quiz? from Edinburgh

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

Monday Pub Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes for Monday night in Edinburgh:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: The music round contains a song by Joan Osborne. See vid below to hear the song. It was a big hit in nineteen ninety six, when you were just a little baby.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Joseph Turner.

We had a £100 winner last week at he Monkey Leith so we’re back to £50 this week. This means that for a rare week, the jackpot at the Safari Lounge is bigger than the monday monkey.

Come along and experience wildlife, food and spirit of the wide plains of Africa, except distilled into a small pub in Abbeyhill.

Incidentally: everyone says the food at the Safari is great. It certainly looks good.

Here’s that Joan Osborne song. It whines a bit although you can’t deny, it has a certain hook:

Hunger Games (Zimbabwe)

Cracking bad answer at Brass Monkey Leith last Monday.

It was the same-letter round so players knew they were looking for answers beginning with the letter H.

Question 3 was “What is the capital of Zimbabwe?” which prompted this classic right/wrong answer:

bad answer capital of zimbabwe is not hunger

You do know the right answer don’t you? That’s right. It’s Harare.
