I’m editing this post at 9pm and I’m yet to have my dinner… this is a killer. If you’re in a similar situation, hold off as there’s some serious food p0rn happening! On Tuesday, Jordan and I had tickets for Editors for our anniversary, which is actually in December but such an awkward date that we celebrate it in November – makes sense for us! Editors are one of our favourite bands so I snapped up tickets a little while ago – aren’t I romantic? We headed out for dinner, choosing to go to the newly opened Bread Meats Bread in town – we had tried to go here before but could never get a table, this time we were successful.
We both went for the classic bacon cheeseburgers, there’s quite a lot on the menu in terms of mains but not too many (I find it hard to choose!) but there aren’t many sides, I usually like to stockpile on the sides and taste a few at a time – here’s hoping they branch out the menu over time as they have only been open about a month. We went for the classic poutine, something I’ve never tried before but of course, I didn’t think it would differ from Scotland’s delicacy; chips, cheese and gravy.
The burger was a beaut, loaded with fillings and topped off with an impressive amount of pickles. Oh boy, it was heavenly! The right size, too. I had to include a good few pictures of it as it was just delicious – and the poutine was amazing too. I have nothing to compare it to in terms of poutine but it really was chips, cheese and gravy. Delicious.
Very full, we headed to Blue Dog for some of their impressive cocktails – I got Strawberry Fields which was a strawberry (& mint) mojito and Jordan got some booze-packed, whiskey based concoction I didn’t go near. Yes, my hair is outtaaa control – it was windy, mmmkay?
We headed to Bar Home closer to the venue for a few more drinks pre-gig – that’s Jordan’s pose face if you were wondering. Soon, it was finally time to head to the famous Barrowlands for the gig… I was pretty darn excited, let me tell you. Jordan had seen Editors in the past but it was my first time, and Barrowlands really is the best venue. It’s an old ballroom complete with crazy lights outside, a must see if you’re ever in Glasgow. British Sea Power were supporting but we only caught the end of their show, we were really only there for Editors… my palms were getting sweaty at this point and the venue was filling up!
Editors were honestly outstanding, they played for almost two hours and I couldn’t think of a better setlist – when Formaldehyde came on I thought I might burst, they were just so good! I couldn’t believe how incredible they were, I am a huge fan but the gig really succeeded my expectations! Incredible.
We didn’t go out afterwards, instead we headed home to watch Natalie Portman accepting various awards on YouTube for some unknown reason. The makings of a perfect date if you ask me! Guffaw.
I included our lunch from the next day as we went to the Trans-Europe Cafe in Merchant City as I had been told to go, it doesn’t look like much but those were the best sandwiches I’ve ever tasted, and that coleslaw! Amazing. Delicious. You must go. You sit in old bus seats.
MMMMMmmm don’t we have great taste?
