Monday 1st July

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: Myanmar (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Eddy Grant(music round)

Monday shoots out of the monthly cannon like a burst-ball grapeshot of devastation and quiz questions and fire.

Happy July!

Here’s the music round cheat for the Safari tonight:

Eddy, King of Rafts.

It’s Eddy Grant. This was a hit when I was a kid and I loved his video – loved the whole raft thing. It made me want a raft. I’ve been of rafts since then and they pretty much lived up to expectations.

Rafts are cool.

I’d rather have a raft than a Tory government.

But you take what you can get. Sometimes rafts just aren’t available.

If you win £80 (over the two quizzes) tonight you could probably buy stuff to make a decent raft. You could sail down the Water of Leith. The chances of dying are slim. There’s a weir just after Saint Mark’s park but I don’t think it’s too serious. You could portage.

I reckon if you get in the river just below the massive big waterfall thing near Dean Bridge, you could get all the way down to the docks.

Does anyone know anyone who’s tried it? Comments below pls!


See ya later – x

Sunday Pub Quizzes On Tonight In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Mars Bar (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Eddy Grant (music round)

Sorry if you were at the Persevere last Sunday when we were unable to go ahead with the quiz due to the large number of Hibees in the bar.

It was disappointing for me too but that’s just one of those things that comes with the territory but maybe we could crowd-fund a campaign to only have football played on Saturdays ONLY.

The good thing is that the pub agreed to make the jackpot a rollover, so we are up to £90 tonight. That’s cool.

Anyway, here’s tonight’s cheat item which relates to the music round at the Tolbooth Tavern

It’s Eddy Grant, the one where he’s got a raft rather than the one where he’s got a motorbike.

I like both. I might even play both tonight. Come to the quiz to win money and find out the happy or sad ending to this Eddy Grant whirlpool.
