Last day of the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, settling down to watch the Men’s Road Race, a perfect course doing twelve circuits of the best of the city centre. It couldn’t last, and the rain came down in, well, buckets doesn’t do it justice. That’s Scotland – the first few days basking in nearly 30 degrees, barbecues all lit and the beer out. Sunday was the antidote. Two quotes:
It’s just a shower..it’ll be over by September
Oh, this wasn’t rain. Rain comes down in raindrops. That implies space between said drops.
Still, in every cloud etc. A table was found for 1pm right at the side of the course, on Gibson Street, arguably the fastest part of the course as they race downhill approaching 65 kph…on a bike…in the rain. Great spot for breakfast, lunch or supper, good food, great cocktails and a great view. Alas, the ‘bolt’ Usain burger was off [popular then], but the award-winning ***chilli cook-off winning chilli*** was still available – just what was needed. Also, the burgers are awesome.
Amongst Glasgow’s many, many restaurants, a star.
Restaurant The Left Bank
Interestingly, across the street is Stravaigin [more later]. The two photographs show the Glasgow weather pattern. Never was “be prepared” more apt.
