Coffee Anyone?

Hello again from Guest Editor.
Well, today I met up with a friend for coffee in town. We had originally made plans to visit Cafe Rouge in Frederick St however upon arriving it was too busy. In hindsight it was pointless to try and get a table in there at 2pm on […]

Mylo at the Corn Exchange

Another guest editor has kindly supplied a review of the recent Mylo gig. Read on….
I was lucky enough to have the fortune of attending the Mylo concert on Wednesday night at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh. It was Mylo’s opening gig of the “Destroy Rock and Roll” album tour and I can safely say it […]

George St in Traffic Chaos

Hello - this is not the usual blogger today. I’m a special guest with a little bit to say about the chaos witnessed in George St today.

Edinburgh Traffic calming in full swing!

The Edinburgh Blog: Edinburgh traffic calming in full effect

What would King George Say…?

After work I walked to George St for dinner at the Grape. On the way I saw the result of the £3 million traffic calming measures. A while ago I remember reading that some groups were worried that the traffic measures were ruining the historical look and beauty of Edinburgh. I think […]

New PC and Snooker at Marco’s

On Saturday night I went […]
