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

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?
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”.
First in an occasional series of reports detailing what the winning team did with their booze voucher.
LOCATION: The Argyle Bar
DATE: Last Thursday
2 x Tennents
3 x Bunnahabhain
1 x Black Sambuca
1 x Tequila
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.
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)*.
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”
This is your doctor speaking. Take my advice: be cool.
