The worst thing about being ill (broken collar bone - healing, brain damage - suspected but not confirmed - I doubt it) is boredom. What do I do?. My solution is get out of the house and consume some alcohol. Is this possible? I'm in Glasgow, we have good public transport and pubs everywhere - so let's go!
|My portal to the world is my local bus stop|
|Bang on time the bus arrives|
|First stop is the Clockwork in Cathcart, a pub, diner, microbewery|
|The first of the day - a pint of Runabout Stout (brewed in-house). The prices are for a 5 litre keg.|
|This building is the Battlefield rest. Now an Italian restaurant it was built in 1915 as an ornate waiting room for the tram service,|
|Why is this area called "Battlefield"? Because there was a battle here in 1568. I'm interested in Scottish history but this one is boring. "A family quarrel" according to Wikipedia. Look for "Battle of Langside" if you're interested.|
|An impressive building. "The Church on the Hill"? I wonder of they serve booze?….|
|A pint of Amstel|
|I'm told that white socks with sandals is a fashion faux pas. I say anything goes when you're ill.|
|There is now a bar called "The Waverley Tearoom"|
My tipple - a couple of Estrella. A very minor pub crawl by Scottish standards but all things in moderation, eh?
