Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Switzerland (pic round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Radiohead (music round)

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

Good Jackpots – Great Burgers

Both of tonight’s decent jackpots are at Kerry’s quizzes rather than mine: £90 at: The Portobello Tap at 7pm and top pot is £120 at The Argyle Bar at 9pm .

The Portobello Tap’s burgers are so good that they SOLD OUT yesterday. Popular!


Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:


It’s Radiohead, who are so miserable they make Morrissey sound like Alan Carr.

Note: for some reason the first part of the clip is Marvin the Martian. The song doesn’t actually start whining and grating until you get to about 1’30”.

Don’t worry – at the quiz the clip only lasts for around fifteen seconds.

And the music round cheat for the Safari is this:


Oasis are tedious like a sudoku with not enough numbers in it.

To be honest I’d happily listen to Radiohead for the rest of my life if the choice was Oasis. God they are dull.

Again, happily, the clip you’ll hear tonight is only around fifteen seconds long.

And aside from those little clips of tedium and misery, the quiz is a non-stop electric roller-coaster bolt-cutter of entertainment power and shazam.

Don’t miss it.

See ya later – x
