Birthday Update

Just a quick update on Tuesday’s birthday bash. The Scotch Malt Whisky Society are not only giving us free venue, they are also chipping in a special membership deal for our readers, only available on the night. The price they’re asking is £60, a massive 40% off their standard sign-up fee.

Food-wise there will be a two-course menu available for £8.99. If you’ve ever eaten in the SMWS you know this is a steal, their food is nothing short of spectacular. If you want to eat straight away it is recommended that you show up a tad early as after 7.30 it is likely to get super busy. Kitchen closes at 8.45pm.

Another thing, if you have any Blog-related photos could you please email them to me?

Some of you are also confused as to how to get there. I recommend bus number 22 from Princes Street, they run every 3min or so. The map embedded below (not a picture, you can play with it) shows you where to get off. The bus stop is called ‘Leith – Parliament Street’ if you want to ask the driver for help.
