Ok, I'm getting slightly irked about folk saying all the restaurants in the thread are great 😎 so how about a thread that's all about Shan ones...in folks opinion of course!
Chop House in market Street is horrendously overrated, tiny lunch portions and poor service.
Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
18 months since Pet Peeves III.
The fitba' season's over so here's PP-IV prescribed as a wee bit therapy for us moaners until the new season starts.
I hate when temporary roadwork signs are left up when they are not...
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.
Babel - Mumford and Sons: Develops their sound from Sigh No More and really cements...
Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
Imagine in 1968 buying The White Album and sticking it on the turntable. Thirty songs (no singles), double album with gatefold sleeve, four colour photographs including this songs like this, after all they had done in such a short time. What an output....

Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?
I am just starting this as I suddenly have a load of gigs to go to that have only materialised over the last 6 weeks or so :greengrin
Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington

A new game!!!
I will start by saying the name of a song, the next person then has to name a song title which uses a word from the prebvious title.
E.g Sunshine on Leith (proclaimers)- I'm walking on Sunshine
ill start - The Boys of Summer
(Try not to link words like "The"
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
Anybody else had it? Quite hot but, manageable! 😡
Standard is questionable but, you get what you pay for.
Just wondered what people had been too see at the flicks as of late?
I went and saw The Purge last night and thought it was very good.
Earth to Echo today and I was gutted it didn't live up to the expectation.
Transformers - good, knew what I was getting
22 jump street - poor
At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
So, to kick it off.......
When you are just about to get into your car in a car park some Dumbo decides to draw in tight alongside your driver's door despite there being empty spaces everywhere around....
I do enjoy these hopefully can get a few I haven't heard:
Bob Holness played the Sax part in Baker Street.
Watched the 1st half of Inception and my head is suitably scrambled so far! 😜
Looking for some inspiration, looking for some holiday recommendations for a family of 3, my daughter is nearly 4.
We want to try something different in the states other than Orlando, any recommendations of places to go with the wee one?
Five of us heading to Belfast 12th-14th April, any recommendations of where to head pub and dare I say club wise (all 30+ but wanting a good sesh and laugh)?
Any pubs that might dodgy stream EPL Saturday 3pm?
I'm looking for a couple of external security lights for the back garden. ideally not bank breaking and I don't need to wire in, so solar?
any advice and pro and cons?
additionally does anyone have any idea about decent cctv that won't break the bank? are they recording door bell style any...
Is there any HIBS supporters liking Drum and Bass here?
Heading to Berlin this weekend and taking in the Hertha V Dortmund game and could do with some advice on vegan eating establishments as half of our party of 6 are vegan.
Have been to Berlin several times in the past so generally know my way around, but not had to accommodate vegans before so any...
What a brilliant drama!
I've just finished series one and I'm blown away with how good it was.
Woody Harleson and Matthew McConaughey are outstanding and the story is compelling right to the end.
This is up there with The Sopranos.
Anyone have any info on the best Scottish islands to visit? Whatís the most expensive/cheapest.. easiest/hardest to get too
Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.
Is this just now a vehicle to build up your posts? The same few people waiting to pounce. Ive had a fair few goes but these threads must come to a natural end.
Seriously, have a word with yourselves.😃
Anyone on here ever had this? When I put my head forward or back I get a shooting pain down my arm and sometimes when I turn head. It is dependant on where my arm is (left) but no such issue with other arm. Is this sounding like slipped disc?
Today I tried to do one of these old fashioned things of paying in cash and buying a stamp to post a letter.
Had letter in hand but didnít have a stamp. Thinking I donít want to buy a single stamp and pay by a debit card Iíll get some cash from the ATM. First machine I go to, not got any cash,...

Saddened to read that Mark Hollis, lead singer and guitarist in Talk Talk has died at a still-relatively young age of 64.
Talk Talk were a great band who really evolved over the few years they were together.
Anyone know of any pub quiz nights tomorrow night preferably in the centre of town?
Can anyone recommend an IPTV provider? Preferably one that supports smart IPTV apps and not just boxes.
Surely this is doomed for failure in the UK? Why the heck would folk pay a subscription to watch old programs? I'm intrigued how the BBC will sell this with us already paying a tv licence, basically devaluing it even further.
Anyone on here repair these as a job? If so rather give the work to somebody on here.
Does anyone know when Hector Nicol released 'Glory Glory to the Hibees (and the other song on the 'b' side)? On the Wikipedia page they need a citation to show that it was the original version of the classic chant from the terraces. If you can point to a web article that has the information I'll...
Probably an age thing, but I'm finding more and more these days that when walking I always seem to be the person that waits to let someone pass, makes a detour around or moves to one side to make way for what I would describe as ignorant sods that haven't got any sense of whats happening around...
Has anyone else found great songs after Shazaming music from TV ads?
I've found a few but the latest is the one from the new Seat offering, the Tarraco.
It's a song called Try by Bugge Wesseltoft and Sidsel Endrelson.
It's beautiful, so chilled.
