Hmm, I’ve been quiet on here but that’s because I’ve been very busy elsewhere. Too busy to reflect and review my offline life, online. What have I been up to? Well to bring you up to speed………….
After the Bungee…..
I went to new restaurant Ox & Finch, the week it opened. All beards, piercings and chalkboard menus. Food was nice in small tapas size portions, beer (Redchurch Bethnal Pale Ale) was a bit pricey too!
Caravan, finally got round to seeing these, now ageing, proggers, and they didn’t disappoint.
Cirque de Soleil’s Dralion at The Hydro, actually saw Rhu and I laughing aloud in delight at what they were doing with trampolines (ooh er missus!)
An overnighter at Lake of Menteith
Magic Band at Stockton
Magic Band Newcastle
Magic Band Manchester with Luisaidh and Kenny Black
Back at The ABC2 to see The Rutles
Heather & Euans Wedding with probably the best weather of the year
Electroscope at The City Hall
Grit at The Tramway, a play about the life (and death) of Martyn Bennet saw me sobbing like a baby
eels at The Royal Concert Hall was a good show
Clyde Clipper Tea, scones and lashings of Red Stripe with fave cousins Joyce & Alec from Vancouver
Fanny Trollopes where slightly surly service once again means despite loving the food, I won’t be back.
Return to Port of Menteith
Geno Washington at a subterranean pop up jazz venue in Merchant City
Sons of Kemet, same venue the following night. So impressed I bought their CD, can’t recall the last time I did that.
