Last weekend there was a large screen set up in St Andrew Square, screening some popular oldies and modern favourites. Best of all, it was free of charge. I only noticed as I was walking past the square on my way into town. They were showing How to Train Your Dragon (awesome film) at the time. You could alcohol (within reason) into the event, but weren’t allowed to bring in any glass bottles etc. for obvious reasons. No seating was provided so you would need to have brought a rug to sit on.
The event ran from Friday 13th June to Sunday 15th. I wish I had found out about it sooner as it would have made for a nice spot for a picnic. It looks like this is turning into a yearly event (it also took place last year), so look out for mentions of it next year, as it would make for a great few hours out in the sun.
Did anyone make it along to one of the screenings?
There’s certainly no shortage of food outlets in Ocean Terminal, with the likes of Wagamama, Pizza Express and Franky & Benny’s all taking up residence. As my girlfriend and myself walked around OT earlier today, we did notice that Mr. Nick’s seemed to be the only busy outlet, with only a couple of empty tables. […]
Nobles has just taken my top spot for places to have brunch in Edinburgh. You need only take a look at the pictures below to see why. I’ll go into a bit of detail to back up those images anyway. I’ve been in Nobles a fair few times before, but never to have something to […]
Not all of Edinburgh’s attractions are well-known. There’s a few out there that are still relatively unknown to tourists, some of them are even unknown to Edinburgh locals. In this post I want to write about some of these lesser known attractions. Each year Edinburgh receives thousands of tourists and it’s a shame to think that […]
Back in June we popped into Victoria bar to watch the World Cup match between Brazil and Chile. We booked a table in advance and were lucky that we did so. We were seated on the stage, right in front of the screen where the match was being shown. Perfect for World cup viewing. The […]
I’ve popped into Jeremiah’s Taproom on Elm Row a couple times over the past few weeks. I think it’s about time I wrote up a review. It’s an easy bar to miss being located on Elm Row, which is set back off the main road. It’s close to the Playhouse Theatre and Omni Centre so if […]
Qupi was the very first cafe I visited in Edinburgh. I remember the day because we had a flat viewing down at Leith Links and had taken the 11 bus from the city centre (rookie mistake). This meant we had to run half way down Leith Walk to get to the viewing on time. On our […]
I’ve been wanting to visit the Roseleaf bar in Leith for a while now. After reading a few of the reviews on Urbanspoon, I had quite high expectations. The bar itself is just a few minutes walk from both my home and workplace, so it was well due a visit. I actually visited it on two […]
