Ayden’s First Oyster

One of my good friends invited me to Oyster Happy Hour at Hutchesons. I got to witness Ayden trying oysters for the first time, so I couldn’t decline such an invitation. I like oysters, and Hutchesons delivered both in terms of presentation and taste. (And price as it’s £1 per oyster during happy hour.)

We washed ’em down with cocktails. An amaretto sour and parma violet, to be specific. 10/10, will be back.


Tamper Coffee in Sheffield

I love Sheffield! My mum’s boyfriend lives there, so I feel quite at home when I visit. Years ago I was told Sheffield didn’t have any good coffee places. I’m not sure when Tamper popped up, but it’s really, really great.


Lunch With Ryan

Ryan’s band have have used my photo as the cover of their new album. As payment I asked him to treat me to lunch. That’s right, food > money.

We checked out Prep Fitness Kitchen, which is one of the few healthy eateries popping up in Glasgow. I had bulletproof coffee and a chicken wrap. That was probably the tastiest bulletproof coffee I’ve had.


Dine Out Edinburgh at One Square

Local people, here are some facts:

5PM is offering two-course meals for £15.95 from 30 of Edinburgh’s top restaurants. This is part of Dine Out Edinburgh. I chose One Square for this deal because it’s a gin bar and I like gin. You can check out the participating restaurants here.

Thank me later.


Holiday Snaps From Berlin

Visited Berlin to speak at Hybrid Conf. Took my sister. Amazing city. One of my favourites, I think. Would love to go back. Bye.


Coffee and Cameras

And doughnuts.

Last weekend, Rab and I did a small coffee shop tour in Glasgow. We visited McCune Smith, Spitfire Espresso and Meadow Road (and Tantrum Doughnuts).

McCune Smith: I had a tasty coffee from the AeroPress, but the service was really slow.

Spitfire Espresso: Great sandwiches to compliment your coffee.

Meadow Road: Nice decor and interesting floor, which makes for a good photo backdrop.

Tantrum Doughnuts: Krispy Who? This is where to get your doughnut fix.


Straight Up Portrait

Spent some time with Rab today, a fellow photographer. It feels good to shoot a straight up portrait. It’s been a while since I’ve picked up my camera for just ‘me’. The aim of our day, however, was a tour of some of Glasgow’s indie coffee shops. Stay tuned for those photos…


Craft Beer With Honest Brew

I’m new to beer, certainly no connoisseur, yet I really enjoyed digging through Honest Brew‘s craft beer box (as did my friends). Our favourite of the evening was Beavertown’s Neck Oil.

Six beers, three friends and a lot of pizza. It was the perfect end to the weekend. So much so, I’m considering a subscription to Honest Brew for more social occasions like this.

Oh, and as someone who enjoys good design, I appreciated the branding on a lot of the bottles. Craft beer is pretty!
