macarons, sushi and cope? pretty much the perfect day!

so, i had a really nice afternoon/evening on friday.  i went into glasgow to meet my friend, emily.  we met in princes square and ended up going into fifi & ally for some tea.  i hadn’t been in before but it was really cute.  there were french waiters and monochrome flocked wallpaper that had silhouettes of different kinds of dogs on it.  pretty cool.  anyway we spent an hour or so just catching up over tea and macarons.  we had the jasmine and rose flavoured ones and they were pretty delicious.  you can’t really tell in this photo, but the macarons were glittery!

the weather was pretty crappy on friday so after we had dragged out our time in fifi and ally as much as we could without being thrown out, we headed across buchanan street to yo! sushi.  i just adore yo! sushi.  the design of it is so vibrant and i love that you can see the sushi chefs making food in the middle of the conveyor belt that runs around the room with sushi on it.  you can eat at your own pace and pick and choose what you want.  we ate a lot of sushi and edamame and drank a lot of green tea and i tried 2 dishes i hadn’t had before; pumpkin korroke and the tofu katsu curry – both were amazing!

after that it was time to head to king tut’s wah wah hut for the citizen cope gig.  i have loved this guy since i first heard his music and saw him play at jammin’ java when i loved in virginia in 2004.  he has a really good voice and a cool sound, sort of acoustic/reggae/soul/pretty much every other genre of music.  the fact that i think he is beautiful is also a plus ♥  i’ve seen him live 4 times now and met him 3 times.  every other time, i’ve seen him with his band but this was an acoustic set, just him and his guitar.  it was really good, apart from obnoxious drunken glaswegians who were being loud and a girl next to us puking all over the floor! i didn’t get much of a chance to chat with him after as i have before but i did get to tell him i enjoyed it and he gave me a little hug.  made my night ♥  before he was on, down in the bar area, 2 bands from texas played a free gig.  they were the o’s and sean russell.  both were pretty amazing.  the o’s were kinda hilbilly rock with banjos and whatnot and sean russell was more mainstream/acoustic.  i would recommend them both!  all in all, it was a great night!
