On our first day, we spent the afternoon visiting a few pubs in Glasgow. We started off at a knockoff Hard Rock Cafe called the Solid Rock Cafe which had this fun mural of 80s characters outside:
I think the creepy Chuckle Brothers are my favourite part! We also spent a while in Monorail, which is a record store with a cafe and a bar that serves homebrewed drinks from these huge kegs:
Monorail also has board games for you to play while having some drinks, so we had a few rounds of Balderdash which Ruaridh won due to being the world's greatest bullshitter!
For dinner, we went to an all-you-can-eat buffet, which was probably a bad idea for an impulsive person like Homer who takes 'all-you-can-eat' as a personal challenge... He did finish this ridiculous plate of food though, plus two others! After a few drinks at Homer's flat, we went to a shots bar and then spent most of the night at a club called Flat 0/1:
I took this picture from Flat 0/1's website to give some idea of the decor, since my flash photography on the night really didn't do it justice - the club has been made to look like a kitschy, studenty flat with old beat-up sofas, mismatched wallpaper and awesome crewel embroidered pictures on the walls. I wanted to steal so many things for my own flat, especially the swingy chairs that were made from two halves of an old bathtub:
Another item that wouldn't look out of place in my collection of old lady-esque wall art was this fantastic picture:
Fun decor aside, Flat 0/1 was also enjoyable because we happened to go on an 80s night - the music was great, plus Back to the Future was playing on a big screen, clearly it was meant to be!
Probably the only picture of the night in which I look relatively normal and am not screaming song lyrics/Back to the Future quotes.
The next day, we went to the park, where we saw a Lion of Justice, some moorhen babies and a love lock:
We also popped in to the Kelvingrove Museum to visit our old terrifying friend, Megaloceros:
Megaloceros used to live in Scotland and although the picture doesn't do it justice, it's about three metres tall with antlers big enough to use as hammocks. The past was a scary place!
I'm going to save Laura's party for another post as I feel that I've already rambled on about far too many different things, except many terrifying costumes to come... I also have an extra special Thrifted Finds post planned, stay tuned!
Hope everyone else had a super fun weekend - what did you get up to?
