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.

Yo!

It’s one of those many many boy bands who fell by the way. No worse or better than the others, just maybe less lucky.

Sunday Night, So Bright, Don’t Fight. Quiz Glory Awaits.

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Leffe (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Westlife (music round)

Hey. It’s Sunday and, as I type, the weather is good. Take advantage, go outside for a while.

Then when you realise how tedious outside can be (nowhere to buy beer, nowhere to politely piss) then come back inside to the pub where everyone is your friend and you can get food and booze and win the quiz.

Here is a clip from the music round at the Tolbooth tonight:

Just like the Wizard of Oz, the video begins in black and white and then dramatically leaps into colour just as it gets to the good bit.

The good bit in the Wizard of Oz is where Dorothy travels to Oz and kills the witch and meets the Munchkins and literally everything goes completely bananas.

In the Westlife video, the “good bit” is just the chorus. 1939 > 2001

I mean, it’s a decent enough song. It’s the sort of thing that would have easily won Eurovision in 1995.

I’ve started properly listening to Eurovision songs for next month. The criticism of this year’s Iceland entry is that it sounds like a winner from the 1990s. It is predicted to fail to qualify from the semis.

My favourite so far is Greece or France or Cyprus or Moldova. Not sure yet – will need a few more listens. I’ll keep you updated because I know you care, deeply.

Sunday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Patti (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Jean Michel Jarre (music round)

Here is the music round cheat info for the Tolbooth: a stunning clip of super-French-ness from the master of all things electronique, Monsieur Jean-Michel Jarre.

Listen very carefully, he will only play this once. (Unless you put the video on repeat).

Meanwhile , people keep asking me about Brexit, Russia and what it all means for the quiz.

Well, I put a report into the British Union of Analysts and asked them to prognosticate.

The bottom line is that Russians murdering their spies and Britain leaving Europe is set to have MINIMAL IMPACT on the quiz.

For this, we should all be grateful.
