8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Duran Duran (music round)

Come to the quiz and make Sunday a TOAST for your life.


Now here is the cheat item for tonight’s music round at the Tolbooth Tavern. It’s eighties mega-monsters Duran Duran

Khalid – Talk

Lyrics to the song contain the words “nuclear war” which is just one of the reasons this is so eighties.

Surprised tje video doesn’t include Simon Le Bon finishing a Rubik’s Cube and a guest appearance from Metal Mickey.

All with Jim Bowen giving away a speedboat to some striking miners in the background while someone calls Mike Read and Matt Bianco a bunch of wankers right to their face.

While Jerry and Margo share a Vienetta while watching Tomorrows World fronted by Kieran Prendeville

Seriously kids, the eighties was just one moment of class after another.

Well class entertainment on TV and class war outside the pits. Either way, it was memorable.

See you later.

Wednesday Quizzes

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Bananarama (music round – see below)

8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Electrolux (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Aerosmith (pic round)

If you’re coming to the joker tonight – best to BOOK A TABLE. This is just in case there’s football people taking up the berths. (Hibs are at home but kickoff is 7.45pm so any fans that do come in will disappear by half seven –  we won’t let them spoil the quiz).

The Bananarama song at the Joker is this:


80s classic. Most of you won’t be old enough to remember Bananarama but they were bigger than the Spice Girls to the power of Little Mix.

My favourite was Keren, she was the one with the dark hair, the one in the middle of this photo:
