Sunday Pub Quizzes In Good Old Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Londonbeat (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Zimbabwe (pic round)

You’ll recognise the cheat-music clip from the Persevere music round tonight. It’s a 1991 super-classic:

Mental. Not as mental as anyone who bothered visiting Hampden the other night to witness the most inevitable 0-1 home defeat of all time.

 

I don’t even know why this is in my head. I’ve found it harder and harder and harder to give hoot what Scotland is doing in football as the years wear on. What’s that? 20 years ago now since France 98. Le sigh.

Dead Pool Full List for March 2018

It took me slightly longer to get round to imputting Dead Pool data this month.

By the time I got to my keyboard, Stephen Hawking, Jim Bowen and Ken Dodd had all dropped.

It’s easy to get them mixed up.

Meanwhile, I’ve done the typing and entering, so here is the full list of those selected for the reaper during the month of March.

Eagle-eyed readers will quickly spot which of the three legends above has been predicted, meaning we already have a winner but we have to wait until the end of the month to find out if someone MORE FAMOUS dies from the list.

After all, that’s the game.

Monday Night – Last Big Jackpot Standing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£300. Cheat: George Harrison (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £240. Cheat news: Saffron (pic round)

Last Monday was a red-letter day for Luiz Araujo, who have been teetering on the brink of greatness for several months.

After a string of bad fortune on other weeks, their persistence paid off and they bagged £240 last Monday at the Safari. It was a great moment:

Earlier on in the evening, no one managed to nail down to Brass Monkey Leith jackpot, so from a pool of recent large jackpots, tonight is the last one remaining intact.

Come and win £300 tonight. Yes: three hundred pounds.

Here’s the cheat info: a music clip from the music round at Brass Monkey Leith tonight…

It’s George Harrison of The Beatles doing a solo number. I don’t usually go for stuff that’s overtly ‘nice’ but there’s a something about the song. It’s a good ‘un.

By the way, my side project is CUNTO. It’s amazing and you can buy a pack now.

Cunto

Who’s in the deck? Russell Brand and 41 other complete Cuntos. That’s who.

Every One Hates The Beast

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Flute (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: India Arie (music round)

The Beast From The East destroyed last Thursday so we are back, stronger, taller, faster, Scooter.

Here’s the music round cheat from tonight’s Newsroom quiz:

 

India Arie has a voice that is very smooth but a little bland, like well-made Ovaltine. Does anyone drink Ovaltine any more? Or is it just me in my Dickensian past?

Three minutes later….

A quick internet search reveals that people ARE still drinking Ovaltine. Well fuck me sideways.

Here’s some other Google searches for things people may or may not still be doing these days. How many of these have you done in the last week?

Sunday Night Edinburgh – Pub Quiz Your Way To Happiness

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Plan B (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Natalie Portman (pic round)

Here is the music round cheat info: a clip from tonight’s music round at the Percy:

The video has a courtroom theme. I was immediately bored by it and the music itself. You may feel differently. That’s the wonder of human taste.

In the (near) future when everything is dominated by robots, there will be no choice or variety, no human moments and utter darkness and metallic bleakness wherever you look.

If I survive the initial onslaught of the killer robot soldiers I will long and pine for the days when something like “She Said” by “Plan B” was even possible.

So let’s not be too hard on the guy.

By the way, ninety quid jackpot at both quizzes tonight. Not bad at all!

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.

It’s the first Wednesday quiz of the year. We have no idea if the pub will still have a few festive bellends hanging about or whether that’s all cleansed now. Come and find out.

Either way it’s quiz time twenty eighteen style. NOW IS YOUR TIME.

Be a lion, not an elf.

Did You Blow It Last Night? Win It Back Tonight

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Pat Benetar (music round – see vid below)

9pm – Safari Lounge.  – SAFARI IS OPEN… NEXT MONDAY!

The Pat Benetar song in the music round tonight is loaded with power. Ninety eighty five was like that. There was electricity in the air – literally. You couldn’t move without receiving a POP BOLT TO THE HEART.

It was dangerous. But it was cool.
