Tonight’s Quiz:

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £30. Cheat clue: Kylie Minogue (music round)

Tuesday

Canonmills, baby. It’s where all the cool people live. Come and join the kind of jet set which occurs when the bottom of the New Town meets the top of Inverleith.

It’s like Beverley hills 90210 but with more reasonable tap prices.

Cheat News

One of the answers in tonight’s picture round is Kylie Minogue. This is the song:

Kylie, defying age etc

Kylie might not look fifty, but remember kids: its all CGI.

See if you met her during the day, without her slap, and taking a an hour or two out of her hectic touring schedule to scull a few well-earned tins of Red Stripe in the wee park at Nicholson Square.. you wouldn’t look twice at her.

In fact, even if she hit her threshold, lets say nine tins, and started screaming obscenities at the pigeons, you would never notice it was the chart-topper.

You’d think it was just another crazy old booze lady.

So anyway: thank god it’s not you who’s on the street yelling brutal drunken nonsense at inanimate objects and birds.

Come to the quiz tonight. 9pm at O’Connor’s

you owe it to yourself.

Cheers,

Dr Paul

Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Julia Michaels (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Canola (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

TEAM; Omni

bunnahabhain-12-year-old-whisky
BOOZE

BOOZE:

2 x Tennents

3 x Bunnahabhain

1 x Black Sambuca

1 x Tequila

COMMENT:

Nice work. I know nowt about whisky but apparently Bunnahabhain is a good one. The Sambuca and the Tequila add urban street edge while it’s all backed up with a pair of basic pints, the kind of pints that built Scotland into the international superpower that she is today.

Well played, Team Omni

Hey. Did You Know That Leith Walk Is The Luckiest Street In Europe?

xxx— cheats tonight — ARONCHUPA and LUXEMBOURG xxx— cheats tonight —

Leith Walk? The luckiest street in Europe? It’s true. Some scientists measured the luck of people walking up and down Leith Walk and compared this with statistics from three hundred other streets in Edinburgh and a similar sample from eighty other cities around the world including Jakarta and Vienna.

Turns out that Leith Walk is luckier than anyone previously imagined. It’s the best. Just walking down it will make you luckier by eight per cent (average). Actually going to the boozer there will increase your spawn by seventeen per cent (average)*.

So…

Brass Monkey Leith, 7pm

Jackpot: Tonight’s jackpot is £150

Cheat: One of the answers tonight is AronChupa, some modern-ish pop/dance from Sweden. You can see the video and hear the song at the bottom of this post.

Safari Lounge, 9pm

The amazing Safari Lounge is hidden away in Abbeyhill. I keep meeting people who go in there after walking past it for months and they always say “Aaah – it’s really great – I wish I’d popped in before.”

So, take it from them and while you’re at it, come to the quiz.

Jackpot: Tonight’s super jackpot is…

Cheat: The picture round contains the answer ‘Luxembourg

Captain Mick, Defier of Gravity

ps_cpt mick wins jim beam

This is your pal and mine Mick. Captain Mick that is – note the armband. And that’s him living it large at the Percy last Sunday with a bottle of Jim, as per winners’ privilege.

Mick defied the years and gravity at the start of the quiz when he performed a HAND-STAND to win the enthusiasm bonus. I ain’t never seen a hand-stand before at the quiz. It’s a first.

Mick rules.
