Re: Tennents Bar

Ach well, yet another pub in which to lounge on a couch whilst drinking £3.50 a pint lager then. I think I'll pop in tomorrow and sign the petition. Tennent's is one of my favourite pubs in the city, precisely because it hasn't been fecked around with. The West End isn't exactly short of swanky pub-...

Re: Shops that never open

Then we are neighbours Alan L - congratulations! I am just round the corner close to Cafe Royale. It is infuriating to be honest. As i said, I tried to patronise the shop but never had a chance, and as you say - open before 9 and you get the breakfast lot. Although Cafe Royale doesn't and it still ...

Re: Shops that never open

I live in the tenement block on Holmlea Road that contained the cafe in question. Spookilly, some years ago I lived in a close beside the Allison Street "cafe" too! The Allison Street place was a clapped out hardware store when I was there, but was still trading when I left in 2006. The Ho...

Re: Forgotten Pubs & Club

Feck knows who will buy it if it is indeed listed.

Re: One for the railway heads

Heard today that 334s and 320s may be getting run through central high level on circles etc. Thatll be fun as the passengers will have to press the buttons to open the doors, can imagine everyone on the platform at queens park complaining the train came in stopped and the driver never opened the do...

Re: Dialect words and usage

On the subject of "roll and sausage" and the likes, I always call it a "roll on sausage".

I don't know if this is peculiar to Lanarkshire, Coatbridge or just my family. If winds the girlfriend up something awful when I use such a phrase though, so I'll continue to do so. :D

Re: The best music pub/jam session/open mic?

Linen's been pretty hit and miss when I've been in. Tis worth a visit though. In the same neck of the woods, I enjoy the Friday night folk sessions in the Ivory Hotel on Langside Avenue. There tends to be a core group of musicians there, but it seems that anyone is welcome to trun up and play. The p...

Re: Whale!!

I work in an office on the Broomielaw. The folk who sit overlooking the Clyde saw it a few times, but by the time that those of us who sit at the back of th building wandered over to the south facing windows, there was nowt to see other then a Police launch scooting about on the river. It ceratinly ...

Re: Tradeston Redevelopment

::): PMSL @ this.

Re: Langside Parish Church fire

I live less then 500 yards from this church (should really change my location to Battlefield, I suppose), and knew nothing of the blaze. It's fair to say that drink has been taken this weekend! Sad news. I'm not big on religion, but the church seemed well used and hosted a good number of events, it ...

Re: One for the railway heads

I see the 314s are said to be replaced by 2010 - surely these have years of use left in them yet? They still seem quiet and comfortable and perfectly serviceable for quieter routes like my local Newton-Central run. Always remember being struck as a kid by just how much smoother the suspension was o...

Re: Shawlands/Southside

Tinto Tapas Bar on Battlefield Road is good. On some midweek nights, they do a taster menu of 3 tapas dishes for £7.50. The individual dishes are usually £3-3.50 each.

Re: What was the Sea King seeking?

Spotted this heading south west over Battlefield earlier.

I've spotted Chinnoks overhead in Glasgow a few times, so didn't think anything untoward was going on.
