a few sherbets en route?


I like the sound of that.  Bath St & Sauchiehall St awash with nice pubs.

NeilP

Will arrive about midday I suspect officer, probably stay at Jury's Inn or the Mecure unless anyone has a recommendation?

We are in the Crowne Plaza Neil, as always for a RUSH gig. See you in the Bon Accord.

BaldiePete

You can't get closer to the gig than at the Crowne Plaza. The bar there is the place to go for a last minute drink before the gig (Waaay better than having a beer in a wobbly plastic glass in the SECC) and is convenient for post-gig drinks as well.

Is there a public car park near to the Crowne Plaza rather than parking at the SECC? I'm tempted to meet a few of you before the gig but I don't really want to have to move my car again afterwards. I'm probably going to take the day off work and come up to town for a spot of record shopping before the gig...

There's on-street parking (metered) on Minerva Street and West Greenhill Place. Those are very convenient for the SECC, there's a covered walkway from the Exhibition Centre station to the SECC.

That's a really good place to park if you want to get away from the SECC quickly.

Aye and also avoid the £6 extortion of the official car park...

Was planning to be in town for lunch time, so that would be ideal.

BaldiePete

I'm not sure yet when I'll be there, Anne has a hospital appointment with her consultant at 10am. I'll probably be in Glasgow about 2pm. The Slaphead Brothers are staying at the Charing Cross Premier Inn just across the road from the Bon Accord.  ;D

thats where I parked my car 2 years ago for the last Rush gig at SECC. I'm planning to park there again and then get public transport to some of the meet up pubs. ;-)
