Thursday Quiz Time In Edinburgh

Well, last week we had cataclysmic jackpots: £270 at half past eight for team Omni and £200 for Rubber Gun Squad a couple of hours later at the Newsroom. Less adrenaline tonight but still great quizzes.

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot: £30. Cheat: David Jason is in the picture round.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: The music round contains Air. Hear the tune by clicking on the video:

No pop video available and live version is like waiting for a big barry double decker bus but then a C5 City Sprinter turns up and it’s just crap.

Do you kids even know what a C5 City Sprinter is? Jeezo.

In the late eighties they were these crappy little buses that went to places like Restalrig and Wester Hailes. If you ever got on one you had to merge fluids with the person sitting next to you. There was no space.

As for the sprinting bit? They went at the same speed as the other traffic.

Sunday Best

Are you wearing fashion to the quiz tonight? Or just clothes? Not that it matters. I won’t judge. It would be nice thought, wouldn’t it, if everyone turned up with smart clothes on now and again. Ooooh.

Sunday – 6pm, The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: There is a band named Bombay BIcycle Club  in the music round. It’s a load of hipster shite but some of you young ones might like ’em. See video below to hear the song and giver yourself a wee edge in one of the rounds.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £120. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is an old film called “Be Cool

I’m looking forward to tonight, it’s the first time for ages that the Sunday jackpots have both been over £100 on the same night.

You know you can get a number 35 bus directly from the Percy quiz to the Tolbooth quiz and get there in plenty of time?

Amaze! Gosh! That’s what I do some weeks when I’m not cycling…
