Pub Quiz Action – Wednesday 27th March 2019

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: B-52s (music round)

Here is the free answer for tonight’s music round at the Brass. It’s the B-52s who are right up there along Slade with claims to being the greatest band of all time.

Fred, Cindy, Kate, Keith and Ricky

The B-52s always looked great. In fact, ‘Rock Lobster’ was the first record I bought, back in the 1980s.

Rock Lobster is the song with weird whale and fish noises. There’s a great youtube video of Fred Schneider talking about it.

Anyway, the main thing to remember is that quiz loves you and you love the quiz.

See you tonight.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: The Departed (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

The USA and the Philippines may be struggling with the aftermath of cyclones and hurricanes and all that business but because we live in ultra-reasonable Scotland, this is not an issue and should NOT prevent anyone coming to the quiz tonight.

If there are any weather or flooding or transport issues which DO prevent you from making it to the two entertainment centres tonight (the Monkey and the Safari) then let me know on Twitter.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari, it’s the The B-52s:

The song doesn’t start until 8.35 but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

But never mind the B-52s. You need to choose what you’re going to wear to the quiz tonight. Something shiny? Something checked? Make it work.



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!

Sunday Gives and Never Takes

Sunday’s like your friend who brings you biscuits and coke when you are depressed. Sunday is nice.

The Persevere, 6pm

Easter Road is the location, the Percy is the venue and you can meet lots of local celebrities when you come to the quiz, such as The Plebs, Blue Fox Tuesday and The Chameleons.

Jackpot: The aforementioned Chameleons won the money last week, so we are back down to £30.

Cheat: The music round includes the B-52s performing ‘Rock Lobster’. First single I bought, as it happens. You can hear the song by clicking the video at the bottom of this post.

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm

Halfway down the Canongate lurks the Tolbooth. If you can find it, you’ll enjoy it. Sunday smells like success.

Jackpot: Unusually, we have a bit of a rollover: it’s £90 tonight

Cheat: The picture round tonight includes the answer The Legend of Zelda. It’s something to do with computer games.

So how about that video. Yes, it’s coming up in a second. I just want to first say how much I love the B-52s.

“I love the B-52s.”

There you go.
