Thursday Night Out at The Dr Paul Quiz

Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Natalie Portman (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Freda Payne (music round)

The Newsroom’s been fun recently and the percentage of twats has been relatively low, even through the Christmas period. Come and try it if you haven’t been in for a while – we have a lovely new pavement outside.

Mmmmm. Nice Pavement

The music round clip at the Newsy tonight is a sad/wedding climax cracker from the 70s. So powerful, like a big bus JUST fitting under a low railway bridge and pushing all the dust and dirt before it, inexorably.

Until twenty seconds ago, I couldn’t have told you what Freda Payne looked like. I’ve always head the song on radio etc but no visuals.

I thought she would be fatter, to be honest.

Monday And Your Cure For It

Monday is back. Like a recurring tumour the doctors had previously ruled out. Luckily there is quiz and this will act as your cure.

Tonight:

Brass Monkey Leith, 7pm. Jackpot £50. Cheat: the picture round includes the answer “Greece”.

Safari Lounge, 9pm. Jackpot £30. Cheat :The music round includes the answer Robyn. Looking it up, I’m surprised to see it came out in 2010. It sounds older, in a disco-timeless fashion. I like it:

See you tonight.

Thanks Hearts And Hibs, You Pair of Wanks

Tonight: Monkey On. Joker Off.

Thanks to the inability of Hearts and Hibs to reach a conclusion to their cup-tie the other week, there is a replay tonight at Easter Road. The ensuing Leith-based chaos means that the Joker is skipping the quiz this week and closing early. Probably a smart move, but annoying nonetheless.

Anyway the Joker should have been £30 jackpot tonight and we’re assuming that tonight would count as a rollover so the jackpot will be £60 next Wednesday. See you then.

The Brass Monkey is on as usual as it is in a part of town generally unaffected by the nonsense that football sometimes becomes.

Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Jackpot: £30

Cheat: The music round includes Rosie Gaines. See this vid for the tune:
