Wednesday 7th February 2024

It’s Big Wednesday. And I’m not talking surf.

The big news today is that there is a NEW WEEKLY QUIZ starting tonight at Oz Bar on Candlemaker Row. This means there are now five quizzes on Wednesday, making it our biggest night of the week.

Quiz starts at 6pm and is hosted by Stuart F who currently does the West Port Oracle (also tonight).

Now, as you may have guessed from the name, Bar Oz is Australian.

Is it run by actual Aussies? I’m not sure but I’ve a feeling it might be. I vaguely remember going in there to try and sell a quiz years ago, when I was first back in Edinburgh, and I seem to remember the place being staffed by Aussies.

In fact, I’m pretty sure that when I popped in on that quiet weekday afternoon in 2010, they were grilling kangaroo meat on what can only be described as a “barbecue”. And the manager was fighting a shark.

At the time they said no to a quiz because they were too busy fisting balls at each other and listening to oafish, middle-of-the-road rock music.

They’re a funny bunch, the Aussies. Never entirely stupid. Never fully clever. Extremely likeable AND extremely unlikeable at the same time. Odd.

Anyway – give it a shot and let m know what you think.

Music Round Clue for Brass Monkey Shore Tonight:

This is BILLY OCEAN and his song which appears in the music round tonight at Brass Monkey Shore. It’s smoother than patent leather and groovier than the Grand Canyon.
