Burns Night.

Yesterday was Burns Night which is a celebration of the life of the poet Robert Burns, one of Scotland’s most famous sons. Traditionally people celebrate by heading to a full Burns Supper but, as Eujin is leaving on Tuesday, she decided to have her leaving do last night instead. We headed to Citation, a beautiful restaurant in Glasgow’s Merchant City, for a meal before heading onto a few pubs/bars in the area. I’d never been to Citation before but the food was really good and excellent value – we managed to get two courses and a glass of wine for under £10! As it was Burns Night, I had Haggis and Black Pudding Fritters to start followed by chicken on a bed of potatoes and mushrooms with a red wine jus which was lovely.

After that we headed onto Maggie May’s and The Libertine, also in the Merchant City, for a few drinks and what ended up as a ridiculous amount of shots! Although they were two places I wouldn’t normally choose to go to (not cheap or cheesy enough for my liking in all honesty!) I really enjoyed myself and had a great night with everyone – there ended up being quite a lot of dancing to such classics as ‘Summer of ’69’ and ‘Living on a prayer’ which was interesting to say the least.  I’ve never actually been out with Eujin and Rosie properly before which was fun although it’s a shame we’ve never got round to doing it before now. However, Eujin is hopefully heading back to Glasgow for a holiday in December so fingers crossed we can be reunited then for more dining, dancing and drinking!
