Fast food?

Now correct me if I’m wrong, but I always thought the premise of fast food establishments was to ship em in and ship em out as quick as possible?

I know some establishments are still trying to coffee shop themselves up in order to offer a more hospitable environment, but effectively its get in, get fed, and go, go, go…

So, I was on a little evening out in Edinburgh last night. A few G&T’s may have been consumed and club kicking out time was fast approaching. Wandering towards my friends flat (stunning), I came over this little gem.

A fish n’chip shop in Edinburgh with a difference. A live DJ spinning the decks out front in the tiny little chippy.  I’m guessing this helps bring in the punters, but it’s certainly a twist on the deep fried mars bar the tourists expect to see on the menu…

Happy Hogmanay!!!

They are predicting a ‘perfect’ night in Edinburgh for the annual pilgrimage that sees tens of thousands of party hungry folk head to Princess St. to see in the new year.

That means bloody freezing, a light wind to add to the freeze, but thankfully no rain or snow.

I haven’t done the street party since 2000, but at the tender age of 32, a civilised dinner in N8 with lashings of vin rouge, gin, and champers is a tad more appealing…

I hope you all have a wonderful new year whatever you are doing, and the very best wishes to you and your loved ones in 2010 and beyond.
