Monday Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

Right – I know I’ve screwed this up twice already this month but tonight’s music round at the Safari DEFINITELY INCLUDES The B-52s:

The song is called ‘Butter Bean’ and doesn’t start in this video until 8’35” but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

I could give you some long explanation about how I got this totally wrong on two separate occasions but that would be tedious. It’s got something to do with shelves and months. I’ll leave it at that.

Anyway, come to the quiz, especially the Safari cos its always a bit quieter there which is a shame cos its an ace boozer.

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

It’s Monday. Come On In.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

The USA and the Philippines may be struggling with the aftermath of cyclones and hurricanes and all that business but because we live in ultra-reasonable Scotland, this is not an issue and should NOT prevent anyone coming to the quiz tonight.

If there are any weather or flooding or transport issues which DO prevent you from making it to the two entertainment centres tonight (the Monkey and the Safari) then let me know on Twitter.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari, it’s the The B-52s:

The song doesn’t start until 8.35 but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

But never mind the B-52s. You need to choose what you’re going to wear to the quiz tonight. Something shiny? Something checked? Make it work.

Monday Super Duper Quiz Party Time – Leith Walk and Abbeyhill

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: Inspiral Carpets (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Take That (pic round)

Yeah. Monday quiz. Yeah. Woop. Excitement. THRILL.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Leith, it’s the Inspiral Carpets:

Power pop from the Madchester band who were usually better than the Happy Mondays or The Stone Roses. Ah – the good old days.

Anyway, let’s not get sentimental. The good old days are dead, like Hitler. Let’s move on and embrace the new, like Boris Johnson.

Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: The B-52s (music round)

Top quiz action tonight. Heavy, sexy, powerful. Will we have an ABBA singalong? Unlikely but you never know…

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari:

By the way, did you know that 1983 actually looked like this clip. This is not some effect to do with low-resolution recording and videotape degradation, the real world actually looked like this.

Thanks to developments in technology and politics, real life went hi-def in about 1998. And you kids complain if your skinny latte isn’t hot enough. You kids don’t know you’re born.

By the way – we have a winner for DEAD POOL in August. Old John McCain lost his long-running battle with death and that means that Tomas Sanders is a winner.

Dead Pool September 2017
Sep 2017 – the last time there was a John McCain Dead Pool surge

If Tomas can drag his ass to the quiz before the end of September he will receive a shiny £1 million scratchcard.

################################

Best prize for Dead Pool to date was £100 won by the bloke who predicted the demise of BB King back in 2015. Could this one be better?

Monday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Fringe finished. I think it might be the fireworks tonight so quiz may be quiet – but hopefully I’ll see you in the nice cosy pub where everyone is your friend. Hopefully you’ll see the wisdom in attending the quiz instead of taking your chances with the sea of hooligans and wanks that populate these large outdoor events. And it might rain.

Mmmmm, quiz.

Mind you, if you do eschew the quiz tonight, you won’t have to listen to the fifteen second clip of this absolute steamer that’s in the Safari Lounge music round tonight.

Amazingly, all the youtube comments say they love it. But I remember it being an advert to sell Ford Escorts. Tainted.

Occasionally, May turns up in Dead Pool. It’s the last few days of August so I am collecting names for September. Get your entry in tonight.

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

Wednesday – Only One Wednesday Quiz Per Week During August

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Roxy Music (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Quiz is off during the festival – Jackpot will be £120 when we start back in September

So last week was a disaster at the Joker – with minute to go before quiz time, the electricity blew up and the pub was snookered.

The power is back on and you will now hear last week’s intended quiz, tonight!

The music round hint for tonight is one of my all time favourite bands: Roxy Music. The sound on this video is shite, but it’s still a great song:

You cannae beat the Roxy.

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

Look at the happy people playing Cunto at the Joker the other week. Yeah:

People playing Cunto
Cunto!

Monday is just  so damn RIGHT. Make fantasy = reality by simply coming to the quiz tonight.

There you go, that’s pretty much the peak of the eighties. Boomer.

Wednesday – Only One Quiz During August

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Roxy Music (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Quiz is off during the festival – Jackpot will be £120 when we start back in September

So it’s August, that means the World Festival of Fuckwits and Carnival of Bastards is in town and it means that life at the Brass Monkey becomes too chaotic to include the quiz. So we wait unti September…

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption, including the fantastic quiz at the Joker & The Thief which really actually is the best pub in the world.

The music round hint for tonight is one of my all time favourite bands: Roxy Music. The sound on this video is shite, but it’s still a great song:

Dead Pool is over for the month. I will post the list of everyone’s choices later today…

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

Monday Night Pub Quiz Action, Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Dexy’s Midnight Runners (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Snow Patrol (pic round)

Come to the quiz. You might meet the love of your life. It’s happened before. People who meet at the quiz sometimes get married.

This is not a warning or a threat. I’m just saying.

Meanwhile: tonight’s music round free answer is for the Brass Monkey Leith where the music round will contain a clip of this song by Dexy’s Midnight Runners:

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Snow Patrol who are described by Wikipedia as a Northern Irish band but a quick sketch through their page reveals that a large part of the band’s history took place in Scotland, as they were formed in Dundee and lived in Glasgow as they tried to break through.

It’s a good story of persistence and showbiz and worth a read, even if you’re like me and think their music is dishwater.

Last chance to enter August Dead Pool is tonight. Don’t miss.

Wednesday Delight – Evening Pub Quizzes for Your Delight

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Ashanti (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: James Franco (pic round)

Tonight sees the final quiz at Brass Monkey Drummond Street until September. The Monkey is situated right in the heart of the festival maelstrom and it means the bar is too transient to achieve quiz during August. Come along tonight to win the cash: £90

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption.

Tonight’s music round cheat bonus at the Joker & The Thief is Ashanti and she sounds like this:

Everyone is falling out with each other in the video. It’s like one giant bad mood.

High production values though, like a movie…

Dead Pool resumes tonight, taking entries for August droppers…

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.
