View Full Version : Scottish Christmas night out proposals

Having spoken to a couple of members regarding this I thought I would get the ball rolling. This thread is simply to put some options forward, I'm happy to take care of the arrangements where I can.

Firstly I'm thinking the best time would be late November or the first 2 weeks in December.
Best options are Glasgow or Edinburgh (I know Glasgow relatively well but I'm not sure of Edinburgh, had a few good nights there too though).

Options:

Mini meet - Would you want to bring the cars for a pre-night out meet, or would you prefer to leave the cars safe and sound at home and just get on with the night out itself. I'm in favour of just getting the day/night started but I'm happy to entertain either option. What would you prefer?

Overnight - I'm planning on staying at a premier inn, would be good for us all to be at the same place. I'm happy to sort out bookings for this, prices will be approx 35 if sharing or 70 if on your own, dealers choice. I'm happy to share but I snore like a bull so it depends if anyone wants to risk it.

Meal - Most chrimbo nights out involve a meal of some sort. Would you prefer to go for the 3/5 course sit down event or would you rather a light snacking menu (pizza, pakora, etc). Happy to arrange either or here too depending on the consensus.

Bars - I know a few cracking bars in Glasgow that will be happy to accommodate a larger group, phoning ahead of time should see us OK on that front. The Corinthian is pretty much a one stop shop and after visiting a few other bars, on the runup, this is most likely where we would end up with the Glasgow night out. For Edinburgh other arrangements will obviously be made but I'll discuss our options with Sunny as that's his stomping ground.


I'll be asking for a non-refundable deposit. I'm not going to faff around with this meet, if you're in... I'm booking you in and your hotel room (should you wish one) will be booked. Please don't take the huff at this request, it's simply to get solid names on a sheet. I'll sort out concrete info once I know the consensus of the options above and I'll start getting things properly arranged. The deposit will obviously depend on whether you wish to have a room or not, and whether you are willing to share etc. I would suggest that we all get booked up in a hotel, if possible, as then we can have a nice hungover brekky together in the morning and laugh at each others pictures from the night before.

So... what would you be up for?

Name - Scott M
When are you free - 23rd Nov, 30th Nov, 7th Dec, 14th Dec
Location Preference - Glasgow
Ok for Edinburgh or Glasgow - Yes
Staying overnight - Yes
If so willing to share - Yes
Mini-meet prior to getting on it - No
Meal - Happy with either munchies or a meal


Anyone is welcome so any of our more distant members are more than welcome to make the trip if they want to see what a proper Scottish night out is like. Be warned though, the cells are cold up here!

Edit: Something that I forgot to mention. I'm thinking it would be good to invite the other/better halfs should the wish to attend. My Wife would probably come out with us depending on the date (she has a night out on the 14th Dec). I haven't actually said to her yet though so I can change my mind. Feel free to +1 yourself, more the merrier :)

Tony, Ian and Ross.... what meal would you be interested in? Options are a sit down multi-courser or a bar snack menu (Pizza, Pakora, etc).

Bar snack menu is fine by me. Had a do at the Bier Hall before which was good.

Plenty beers to choose from and BOGOF on pizzas, just bought loads and everyone dug in?

Similar to what I was thinking Ian. I know a place called Bread & Butter that's fantastic, only been the once but it was ideal for this sort of thing. It's in a good area too.

Anyone else fancy it? I believe that Style will also be coming to this, but since he is in the land down under hasn't yet dropped his name down.

So far it's looking like we're Glasgow bound, we won't be bothering with a meet, the grub will be pubbish and we'll be taking over a premier inn :D

I'm going to nail down a date and location over the weekend folks. At the moment it's the 23rd Nov & Glasgow. It's always going to be a case of the more the merrier but after the date is set people will need to work around that, rather than me working the date around the people.

Have any of you given thought to bringing your WAGs?
