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.

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