Suggestions for what to do on a Friday night.

My wife has booked us into Rab Ha's for one night on Friday 16 March. It was on a deal which includes dinner, B&B.

I am seldom in the town on a Friday evening does anyone have any suggestions about what's on or where we can go? Bear in mind that we want to take advantage of not having to rush for the last train as usual. ;o)

Alex, The comedy festival will just be kicking off and there are some 'best of' events on around the city as well as individual comedy shows.

I know people who love Spamalot but I'm in really two minds about it. Its on at the Kings.

Thanks, I thought the comedy festival was the next week so we'll probably end up going to one of the gigs.

The problem is that dinner is included in the deal so we won't be available for any early start activities.

A trip to one of the casinos could be profitable. Or expensive!

PurpleC, Spamalot is fun if you like the film and musicals.

We used to go the casino but it's not my scene. I know a lot of people enjoy then but they are not for me.

Boteca de Brasilia near the Trongate usually have good salsa music and dance on a Fri night, if you'd be interested in that. maggie May's next door is open til 3am I think if yu really want to make the most of being able to stay out late!

Is your age relevant to whatever it is you want to do, or avoid?

Check and see if there is anything on at the Old Fruitmarket just round the corner from Rab Ha's. We were recently at a concert there and i have to say as a venue it is quite spectacular and well worth a visit.

Choose carefully for the comedy festival. Last year we went ticket mad for a number of shows and let's just say it was a bit hit and miss! Some were far better than others!

BTW, Rab Ha's now sells cracking beer from Glasgow's own WEST brewery. It is well worth a try.

Did someone mention Maggie Mays? I think thats one of the venues for the 'best of' the comedy festival nights.
