Thursday Night Out at The Dr Paul Quiz

Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Natalie Portman (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Freda Payne (music round)

The Newsroom’s been fun recently and the percentage of twats has been relatively low, even through the Christmas period. Come and try it if you haven’t been in for a while – we have a lovely new pavement outside.

Mmmmm. Nice Pavement

The music round clip at the Newsy tonight is a sad/wedding climax cracker from the 70s. So powerful, like a big bus JUST fitting under a low railway bridge and pushing all the dust and dirt before it, inexorably.

Until twenty seconds ago, I couldn’t have told you what Freda Payne looked like. I’ve always head the song on radio etc but no visuals.

I thought she would be fatter, to be honest.

Wedding Bells

Dr Paul impresses the bride and groom with quiz mmayhemHey – I did I wedding on Saturday which was a big hit. “That was brilliant – you really made the day!” said Louise the bride and obviously she was being nice but it was a lot of fun and everyone was definitely enjoying themselves, even the people who didn’t think, at first, that a quiz at a wedding was a good idea…

Some folk have said they can’t imagine how a quiz fits into a wedding party but it does, and does so quite nicely.

The best time is just after the food – everyone is still too blubbery and full to begin any kind of dancing and on SOME of the tables the conversation MAY have run SLIGHTLY dry.

So, enter the quiz. The trivia gets everyone talking, and within minute of starting, everyone is having fun without having to get up yet out of their chairs yet. Perfect! By the time my hour has come and gone, everyone’s re-charged and ready for the evening’s entertainment. Yeah!
