Went a few weeks back. Tried Bos'n first but couldn't get a seat.

Had a couple of cocktails each and tapas, both very good but racked up an £80 bill in no time.

Still decent though.

16 quid for a Sunday roast seems pretty steep.

Meanwhile our club scene has taken a total dive. Wish we had some decent nightclubs up here.

Yeah, lost what little we had. Farewell Snafu. Always thought the building Priory was in had a great potential as well, even if it was the biggest dive ever.

Food at Rye and Soda is class, but well pricey.

Mind you, I know the guys that organise this new clvptrvp thing and it seems like they could be onto something new and different

Anyone been to the new beer joint on Little John St? Popped in the other day for a look but didn't stay for beer as was on my own walking by. Seemed alright guys running it were sound- I hope it lasts longer than every other bar I can remember occupying that unit.

Me and my mate stopped in before Minival at the weekend, decent enough selection but nothing spectacular. Was good to actually get a full pint though rather than the 2/3rd's pish Casc and 6 Degrees deals in. There's a cocktail bar up the stairs as well but didn't have time to check it out.

Think it's gonna last longer than a couple of months?

Doubt it as there are 3 other places doing the same/v similar in Aberdeen.

Lee Foss, Minival, Hot Heat and House of House last night have all been fantastic nights of late. Sad I missed out on Ben Klock earlier in the week. Anyone go?

Nah didn't go but only heard good things. It's good to see that these events are more regularly happening in low key low capacity venues again. Makes the whole thing that little bit better. Anything else decent coming up soon?

Yeah it was great, Giles is a fucking wizard on the decks. Keep an eye on House of House as the boys are moving to Canada soon so are doing a few big ones before they go.

Another one to keep an weye on is FiveThirty- my pals run it and they had a Sunday Session in Bos'n last week. They are just starting to play out but it was great fun and they had MAin Ingredient up from Edinburgh which was fantastic.

What's going on with Hanon these days? I just had a look on their website, are they only doing shoes now?

New site is awful. Weird that there's only footwear online.

They have just had Norse Projects decide they wanted to be stocked in Kafka as well as Hanon. I had heard rumours they were going to be stopping selling clothing and being footwear only. Not sure how much truth there is in the matter.

Norse will be in Kafka only.
