I'm overseas next weekend. We have to make this happen before he goes or we're open to accusations of being nan kids.

timmbo have you done one of the bus tours? Actually pretty good and you get to see a lot of Edinburgh that you otherwise couldn't cover in a day walking. You can get on and off all day so it would allow your Grandma to do as much or as little walking as she wanted.

There's also the one that links up with a boat tour out onto the Forth, with an optional stop on Inchcolm Island to see the abbey. Saw loads of seals when we went.

I want to buy a whole stornoway black pudding (1kg+) but all the online shops charge the same price in delivery as they do for the pud, any obvious stockists? Will a butcher sell me a whole one at a not massively inflated rate?

Bearing in mind I'm a vegetarian and don't pay attention to meaty stuff, there's a butcher near us that looks like it might be a good bet for that kind of thing - Crombies on Broughton Street.

Or John Bain over your way stocks Charles MacLeod Stornoway black pudding which is supposed to be good.

Valvona and Crolla apparently might also stock it.

Failing that there's the Edinburgh Farmers' Market which is on Castle Terrace on Saturdays.

A mate has asked me for pub/bar recommendations in Edinburgh/other things to do. Late 20s early 30s women so probably cocktail type places. Anyone point me in the right direction?

Free tickets for The Stand Comedy Club on York Place.

Never been to the Edinburgh one but been to the Glasgow one a couple of times and it was good.

Fuk unmeet? Laughing out loud

The Stand wrote: Fun for FREE at The Stand Comedy Club Edinburgh

Sixteen years ago a group of Edinburgh comedy fans got together to start a comedy club. The Stand was born in a tiny basement in the Old Town. Now it is a city institution and renowned worldwide. But it’s still the same really – run by people who love comedy, and supported by the residents of our capital city.

Yet surprisingly there are many people in Edinburgh and the Lothians who’ve never been, and The Stand would like to rectify that. To make it easy we’ve got a simple no strings attached offer – we’re going to let them in for free! All they need to do is register online with us now at www.thestand.co.uk/free and we will give them a free ticket for any Thursday night over the next couple of months. We hope that they’ll see what they’ve been missing and come back to see us regularly. Over 45,000 brochures will soon be dropping through Edinburgh letter-boxes with information on the offer, but The Stand would like as many people as possible to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Open 360 days a year the Stand offers the very best Scottish and international comedians, an intimate club bar and surprisingly tasty home-cooked food. Drinks are at pub, not club, prices and variety and value are guaranteed.

The cosy cabaret setting makes an ideal night out with a difference. It’s a great place to go with the other half or with a small group of friends. The club is aimed at people who enjoy the spontaneity of live stand-up and we aim to make you think as well as make you laugh. So it’s not for everyone – sorry, hen and stag parties will need to go elsewhere on Friday and Saturday nights.

Over the years pretty much anyone who’s anyone in comedy has played The Stand. Some, like Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle started here. And we’re always on the lookout for new acts to keep our bills fresh and interesting. Coming up at The Stand we have some fantastic headline acts including Phil Nichol, Jo Caulfield, Dave Fulton, Rob Deering, and Simon Munnery, to name but a few.

Cheers Andy, Simon Munnery it is. Although I'm going to a History debate that a few of my friends are in that night as well.
