9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £60. Cheat clue: Labrinth (music round)

The Festival Is Over

Yes. All the festival wanks are away back to London. The students don’t turn up for another few weeks. The weather is still good. This is Edinburgh’s golden time. Gotta love it.

Cheat News

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

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

Tonight’s Quiz:

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £90.

£90 jackpot at o'connor's
Watch out for Lenny

Kerry is back tonight at O’Connor’s – and with the jackpot at £90 there’s every chance Lenny Henry will turn up.

Sorry, SIR Lenny Henry. I forgot about his knighthood that he earned by advertising cheap hotels that are handily places for easy access to the Motorway network.

Cheat News

One of the answers in tonight’s picture round is ‘Blackadder 2’

Y’all remember Blackadder don’t you? Or is it one of those things that I think is commonly known but it turns out it was on TV 30 years ago and isn’t quite as universal as I think?

Nahhh, everyone knows Blackadder.

It’s a difficult balancing act sometimes, asking questions which everyone can guess at. Finding a set of questions is hard where everything can ring a bell but which are not too easy for the seasoned quiz-goers.

And yet we manage it every time. That’s cos DP Quiz is the best. For real. Top truth.

How old is Kailzie
How old questions – universal.

That’s why “how old questions” sometimes occur in the picture round – they are a great example of something that is universally in common. Also – bloody hard to Google!

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

you owe it to yourself.

Cheers,

Dr Paul

Tuesday 30th July

Tonight’s Quiz:

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £30.

On the corner of Broughton Road and Rodney Street

Kerry is back tonight at O’Connor’s – the new on the Canonmills scene.

The booze and chat is gaining plaudits around the neighbourhood and so is the food.

Kerry reports that the food at O’Connor’s is excellent and the kitchen is open till just before the quiz so you can come in and have some nice dinner first.

If you’re not a vegetarian you could potentially feast on slaughtered animals before going on to slaughter the opposition in the quiz.

Fun fact: slaughter is only the word laughter slightly lengthened but the two meanings couldn’t be more different.

This goes to show the importance in day-to-day life of spelling but remember that in the quiz, spelling is not terribly important. If we know what you mean then you get the points.

Here’s tonight’s cheat. It’s for the picture round it’s the fact that this guy got his medals for sailing.

Less fun fact: you absolutely HAVE to be posh to win medals at sailing. It’s de rigueur.

Anyway: the class war continues on the streets and it’s a fight that will last forever but in the meantime, take a bit of me time and get yourself to the quiz.

you owe it to yourself.

Cheers,

Dr Paul

NEW QUIZ for TUESDAYS! – starting tonight

Brand New Pub Quiz in Edinburgh Tonight:

On the back of continuing success in Musselburgh, Kerry now brings you Tuesday nights in the Canonmills area… at brand new pub O’Connor’s

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £100. (one-off special jackpot for opening night only) Cheat: Supergrass(music round)

This is a new night. You can say you were at the very first quiz at O’Connor’s. And to make it extra-festive, top boss Christy is putting up a one-time-only £100 jackpot.

I’m not a hundred per cent sure of the deal but I THINK we’re saying this hundred pounds MUST BE WON.

Now, opening nights tend to be a little quiet, so that’s good odds. Get your ass to Canonmills.

If you don’t live in North Edinburgh you might not know where Canonmills is. It’s basically at the bottom of Broughton Street – where Rodney Street meets Broughton Road.

The number 8 bus goes there and so does the 36. The 23 and the 27 pass nearby. It’s a fucking great wee part of town.

As ever, I’ll post a cheat on the day. Tonight’s cheat is for the music round and it’s 90s rockers Supergrass. This is what the song sounds like:

The Grass

So come on and get your North Edinburgh Tuesday night vibe moving. Do it!

If you do know the area, you might already know that O’Connor’s is an entirely new business, having taken over the space that used to be ‘The Other Place’

The Other Place was all right but O’Connor’s is going to be loads better and that is OFFICIAL

Word.
