Thursday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Dead Cities (musc round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Netherlands (pic round)

Thursday is all about a nice pint and the cave vibe (Argyle).

Thursday is all about the uptown swagger and a possible pagger (Newsroom).

Thursday is all about cool friendly local inclusion. No judgement. (Argyle).

Thursday is all about tanning cocktails until Armageddon bears down (Newsroom).

You know – different vibes.

But, in the famous and well-known words of Scotland’s very own Marti Pellow, “THURSDAY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT”.

Former heart-throb

Meanwhile, here is the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Argyle.

It’s The Exploited. The story goes that the Edinburgh punks made this appearance on Top The The Pops and subsequently the singer (Wattie) had his dole docked when he went to sign on the next week as his Dole Officer had watched the show and now recognized him as a pop star.

It’s a great story but searching online for verification has proved fruitless over the last ten minutes or so. Does anyone know if it’s true or false?

Whatever you do, don’t miss the quiz tonight. All non-attenders could potentially be raptured by Satan.

Tonight’s Edinburgh Pub Quizzes With Your Old Pal Dr Paul

I am a friend to you. I can help you. I can solve all of your problems. I am THE DOC. Come to my quizzes tonight.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: P.I.L. are in the music round – see vid below.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat: One of the answers for the pic round is Liberal Democrats

P.I.L. was John Lydon’s vehicle after he had finished being Johnny Rotten out of the Sex Pistols.

I only knew the singles, never got an album and I remember thinking at the time that I was never very sure if I liked the songs or not.

I still feel that way. I get his voice. But he never topped the Pistols. Pistols were ace.

By the way, anyone can win that lovely cash that lurks at the end of every Dr Paul quiz. Last week at the Brass Leith £50 in single-crispy form went the way of Andy. Look how happy it made him:

Andy is so happy
Andy is so happy
