Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:
7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bad Company (music round)
9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Beastie Boys (pic round)
It’s hitting week three of the Fringe and everyone has had enough. Edinburgh is a nightmare. You can’t GET anywhere. You can’t get served anywhere without an enormous queue.
Well, not exactly.
Of course, the simple solution is that all you have to do is step OUTSIDE the city centre.
I knew a woman from Down South who once had a fringe show on Broughton Street, very near the Cask & Barrel, or whatever that big boozer is called (on the corner of London Street). I remarked that it was a good venue, city centre and she looked at me like I was mad.
As far as she was concerned, Broughton Street could have been the moon. She said NO ONE would come to her show – it was too far away.
So that’s the festival mentality: If it’s not EH1 then it can get tae fuck.
The upside of this is that the city remains relatively calm outside the bubble o’madness. So get yourself to Leith, get yourself to Abbeyhill if you need a break from the city centre crazies.
Come and do the quiz. And win things. And be happy.
Here’s tonight’s music round cheat which applies to the early quiz at Brass Monkey Leith:
Best youtube comment for this comes from someone called Kevin:
“Came for the song, stayed for the chest hair. Not gay.”
Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.
First one at the Brass Leith concludes 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)
