Life is peaceful there

When it comes to Scotland, there is no doubt that West is Best, after all, Glasgow is found on the west side of the country. The West End Jennies will also rush to tell you that the West of the city is the best side but there has been a resurgence in the East of late. No, we’re not quite talking about the rejuvenation in time for the Commonwealth Games, we’re talking about West Brewery, nestled where the city centre meets the East End in Glasgow Green.

If you love beer and food as much as the Get Around Glasgow team does, you will definitely have made acquaintances with the venue and their lovely products but if not, this weekend could be the ideal time to do so.

Okay, the snow has been falling in Glasgow today and perhaps all you are thinking about for the weekend is staying indoors wrapped up warm but where is the fun in that? Get wrapped up and get out for some bracing fresh air and surely Glasgow Green is one of the places you want to be this weekend if there is the hope of snow.

If you are in need of any additional incentive to head along to WEST, there are a couple of events taking place that could be of interest.

On Saturday, a big event in the Green is the launch of the Monte Carlo Rally. Yes, Glasgow may traditionally be more Monte Zommers than Monte Carly but the big race departs from the People’s Palace at 2pm on Saturday afternoon (the 26th of January). The thing is, there will be cars and activities available from 10am so you can head along at any time in the morning to early afternoon and see some great machines. While you are in the vicinity, you’d be as well popping into WEST for something to eat or a quick drink!

On Sunday, there is a change of pace and it is inside WEST Brewery that the action takes place. If you have been fortunate/unfortunate (delete where applicable) to have become engaged recently but are still to finalise a venue, WEST are having a wedding open day on Sunday the 28th of January. There will be a full run-down of what services and products they have to make your special day even more special.

There is a great charm to the WEST venue at times and if it is packed full of your friends and family, it is going to be a brilliant occasion. That and you have the perfect excuse to try some of the great food and drink on offer!

If you have been behaving yourself in January and feel like treating yourself to something nice, a trip to WEST would be in order…and if you love cars or weddings, you have the ready-made reason to head along.
