Do you know how hard it is taking a photo and pouring milk at the same time? Good thing I used to be a drummer and can do at least 4 things at once.…
After attending Young Rewired State, I met Mark Young – part of the GatherContent team – who spoke about marketing within a start-up. This interested me hugely as I’ve just built my first app (and rolled out the beta to select individuals). I badgered him into meeting me for a tea to talk some more. This was my first Tchai-Ovna experience, although we gave the shishas a miss, and I have to admit it was… weird. Not bad weird. Just weird.
How cute is Ayden! So cute I had to make a montage.
Andy is doing a bit of work in Glasgow, and his office just so happens to be right next to my house. Since it was a ridiculously nice day, I took him to Kelvingrove Park on his lunch break and made him drink tea. He likes tea. I couldn’t decide what photo to use, so I made a diptych. I don’t even know if that’s what these things are called, but it is now.
The Hidden Lane Tearoom is true to its name, tucked away in a charismatic courtyard that you have to venture down a discreet alley off of Argyle Street to get to. I went with Shona, who was the perfect person to discover this gem with as she enjoys her vintage crockery, classic tea and so on. We went late afternoon when it wasn’t busy, which was good as this place is tiny. The food was good, chai tea was on the menu, and the general atmosphere of the place was… different, but definitely in a good way.
