I got a ding in my inbox from The Rotunda, inviting me to come see tonights show.

I have never been to any comedy club so I didn’t know what to expect, and accepted their invitation.

The location that the comedy club is in, I have been to a few times as there is a Mediterranean restaurant called Mezze inside. If you haven’t been here yet please to take a look at my reviews, and check it out you won’t be disappointed.

Going by what I heard tonight, this is a very new comedy club so I hope going by tonights success its open for a long time.

The Acts…

There was only one act I knew off, and seen once before his name was Colin Cloud. The others I had never heard of, but I do have to say I enjoyed all their acts.

One act that stood out was the very last guy, he played the guitar and sung his jokes…I am trying to find out his name as I would like to see him again and once I do I will update it here.

** Update 09/12/2017 : The guy is called Harry Garrison, and I have now followed his facebook page here

Its very good value for money as the whole show lasted for over 2hours, and everyone was laughing from start to finish.

Overall

Firstly a big thank you to the Rotunda for my invite, I had a really good night,  and laughed none stop from start to end.

I will be going back to see more acts, as my first comedy club experience was very good

I have been to the Corinthian a good few times, mostly for the Afternoon Tea which is my favourite in Glasgow. Inside has always had a lovely and relaxing atmosphere, and also the staff have been very friendly and helpful.

Last week I got an email inviting me to tonight’s event, which was to try something from the new menu….well I love my food and I like the Corinthian so I couldn’t turn it down.

I was looking forward to trying this menu, as I have never really been in here for food. Its always been Afternoon Tea, or for a few drinks so it was now time to sample the food.

On entry I was welcomed and shown to my table, if you have never been here there are effectively 3 seating areas in here. The first being the ones on the left as you go in, these are booths with a big chair. These are more for couples, and this is where I was seated tonight. The next is the middle are, which has a few group tables, and then the far right which is booths and tables again for groups.

The Food…

Starter

Potted Chicken Liver Parfait £N/A (Normally £6.95)
Pear Chutney, Pea Shoot Salad & Brioche Toast

I always like to try this at any restaurant, as its interesting how they all differ and how they present it.

This was presented very nicely, and looked very good, my first thought was maybe 1 more brioche toast would be good but lets see how I get on.

I have to say this was the best Chicken Liver Parfait I have tasted so far, it was very very smooth and full of flavour and it worked amazing with the Brioche Toast. I was correct though, there was still enough parfait in the little pot enough for one more slice.

I would have this again!!!

Portion Size : 4.5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Main

Herb Crusted Ayrshire Pork Fillet £N/A (Normally £14.95)
Toulouse Sausage & white bean Cassoulet

I spotted 3 dishes I wanted to try, but I opted for this as it sounded nice. My second option would have been Peterhead Haddock and Chips, as it sounded very good.

When it arrived, the presentation and smell was very good so I was looking forward to seeing how this tasted.

This was very nice, and cooked just right as it was not mega chewy which is always my pet hate when it comes to dishes like this.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Dessert

Brandy Soused Strawberry Creme Brulee (V) £N/A (Normally £5.95)
Shortbread

Presentation again this was very good, and it looked very good.

I tried the shortbread first, and this was very good I love shortbread.

Moving on to the Creme Brulee, this was again perfect and very very nice. This and the shortbread for me was a perfect combination.

I would have this again!

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

During the meal, a live quarter was performing they were called Strings Aloud. Due to the design of this building, and due to it being strings the acoustics were amazing and the sound was very relaxing and created a very very nice atmosphere for everyone.

Overall :

I am very pleased I got tonight’s invite, as I learned that here does very nice food where are before in my mind it was more a cocktails and Afternoon Tea location.

I cant fault anything tonight, all 3 courses were very nice, the service was good and also the atmosphere was perfect.

I would like to thank the Corinthian again for my invite, I had a very enjoyable evening and will see you soon.

Glasgow Rum Club : Coming Soon

RUM CLUB

Hey,

I am helping promote the return of the Glasgow monthly Rum Club.

If you didn’t know Glasgow had one ,there was a regular Rum Club all of 2016. It was held at the now closed Sugar Dumplin, so now we have a new location.

The date of these events are still TBC, but we are thinking on a Tuesday evening and either the last Tuesday of the month or the 1st Tuesday.

We have a fantastic and passionate host, who will teach you about different rums and give you a good laugh at the same time.

The Club:

Location : TBC (Trongate Area)
Time :  TBC

  • The cost is £10 on arrival, so you don’t need to worry about loosing any money…just pay at the door.
  • Learn how rum is made
  • You will taste and learn each month, a different selection of rums and the history.
  • Food to nibble on while you taste and learn.

The events last year had a good following, and everyone that attended loved the tasting, met new people and most importantly had a laugh and an enjoyable time.

Sound good? then keep watching my tweets, posts etc
