I’ve been to Calistoga a few times and I don’t seem to learn my lesson....
There are neither spoilers in this review nor photographs. Brown asks the audience again and again not to tweet or spoil the show. This is understandable as even a little knowledge, I think, would ruin the carefully blended mix of surprise, suspense and impressive skills. As advertised the show is suitable for years 12 and [...]
Ocean Terminal is a three story shopping centre on the dock end of Leith. It is a collection of retailers with restaurants, a gym and a cinema thrown in for good measure. This isn’t a review of Ocean Terminal. I don’t think it’s possible to review an ecosystem that’s so variable in any meaningful way. [...]
The tiny Edinburgh Reviews team were invited in by the good folks at The Edinburgh Dungeon team for a tour and a catch up behind the scenes. We really enjoyed the tour and you can read the review of the Edinburgh Dungeon in a previous post as well as get the link to the discounted [...]
Last week I went on a late night tour of The Edinburgh Dungeon. It’s spooky but also fun. There’s a bit of humour injected into the experience and that helps the whole tour come together. While The Edinburgh Dungeon is spooky it is far less gory than you might expect. This is not about people [...]
The weather forecast is for more snow. In fact, the MetOffice has just issued an amber alert for snow for South West Scotland. We’re just recovering from the last bout of snow but this blogger was able to get out to Leith Links before too many footprints to take some pictures.

The review, titled “Embarrassed!”, is from a customer who complains her party was not served drinks because the bar claimed they were drunk. How did the Smoke Stack respond? They bundled an image of [...]
This video has earned more than 100,000 plays on YouTube and has been featured on sites like Neatorama, Laughing Squid and The Awesomer. It shows the Top Secret Drum Corps from Switzerland performing in the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Here’s the catch; they’re not military, they’re not British or Commonwealth. They made it to Edinburgh Castle [...]
This is one way to propose to your girlfriend. In this case it’s Samuel Waldron proposed to his girlfriend Sibylle Pausch on a flight from Heathrow to Edinburgh. This choir flashmob was an added surprise. The Sing in the City Choir had three weeks to prepare and plan the wedding medley. Shout out to Edinburgh [...]
I’m rather addicted to the crowd funding site Kickstarter. It’s not just a place to “pre pre-order” and get stuff cheap. It’s a place you can back artists and, increasingly, good local causes. You can back this local Edinburgh company by promising just £5 (if they’re successful) in return for a mention or £10 that [...]
It’s Hogmanay and corks are beginning to pop. This infographic takes a look at the art and science of champagne cocktails; can a small addiition really improve a glass of bubbly?
