When my sister and her partner visted in December (did I mention we went to see Mogwai and it was amazing?) we made plans to meet up when I was next in Leeds and visit one of their favourite restaurants, Bundobust. Bundabust’s deal is vegetarian* Indian street food and craft beer. They do great tapas-style… Continue reading Dinner at Bundobust, Leeds
If you think things have been quiet on the blog lately, you’re right. Everything got super busy in the middle of September and then I had to take a short trip to Munich for Oktoberfest and I’m just now catching up. Yes, you read that right. Oktoberfest in Munich is indeed in September. I don’t… Continue reading Oktoberfest!
Sten do. Noun. Party to celebrate an upcoming wedding to which both friends of the bride and friends of the groom are invited. Portmanteau of “stag do” and “hen do.” July is going to be a wonderful month, not least because two of my favourite people, Rhys and Louise, are getting married! On Saturday I… Continue reading Sten do!
Last night I attended a bloggers event at Glasgow’s Crossing the Rubicon (CRT), a restaurant specialising in small curry plates and craft beer. I had been planning to visit this place since I first heard about them because craft beer and curry are kind of exactly my scene, so I was super excited about the… Continue reading Blogging the Rubicon at Crossing the Rubicon, Glasgow
I love to travel. I’m always planning my next trips and thinking about places I could go and what I could do there – even if I have no realistic way of actually making it happen. Like in this last year, where a lack of money and time meant that there were 14 months between… Continue reading Trip to Brussels!
When I talk about my best friend, I’m talking about JC. I’m fortunate that I have lots of amazing wonderful friends, but nothing supersedes The Best Friend Made In Childhood when it comes to defining Best-friend-ness*. JC and I met in primary school when we were 5 and 6 years old (I’m three months older). We… Continue reading JC moves away
This was an event that was a little out of the ordinary. The launch of Pabst Blue Ribbon (or PBR) in Scotland was not what I expected it to be but it was really cool. Apparently, they’re quite a well-known brand in the US but, although I’d heard of PBR, I hadn’t had the opportunity… Continue reading Launch of Pabst Blue Ribbon in the UK
It’s that time of month again! At the end of each month I discuss new things I’ve been trying in the past ~30 days, usually aiming for five items. This is part of what was one of my New Year’s Resolutions this year: Try new things. That said, I think I’ll probably just keep it… Continue reading New things I tried in July
I was sure I’d miss out on all the beer festivals this year. What with thesis writing and no real income ocurring at what I’d consider to be peak beer festival season it just looked impossible. The Glasgow Real Ale Festival came and went and then so did the Paisley Beer Festival and it wasn’t… Continue reading West End Beer Festival
The Glasgow subway system is small but perfectly formed. It has just 15 stops, in a loop that connects much of the City Centre, the West End and the South Side. It’s the third oldest subway system in the world (following London and Budapest) and originally opened in 1896. Affectionately known by locals as the… Continue reading The Subcrawl
