Have a spooky weekend!


Boo! Happy Halloween, people. Here are some activities to help you feel strange.

Thursday night

Tonight at 6:30, comic shop and geek hangout, Geek Retreat, will be hosing a special Halloween party, featuring a scavenger hunt. Come before 6:30pm to ensure you get to participate in the game.

Glasgay! event Scottee: The Worst of Scottee will be happening at the Arches tonight. Watch Scottee examine his past to discover why he ended up so badly. Scottee revolts and is revolting - a performance artist who uses some extreme imagery. Time Out says: “A progressive sensibility and tits-n-teeth showmanship… it’s as if he’s gone off the end of the pier, dredged the waters and returned bearing slime with a glint in his eye. He puts on one hell of a show”


Friday afternoon

Mono will be putting on a special menu all day Friday in honour of World Vegan Day. Come celebrate a far kinder, more environmentally friendly way to live by eating yummy Caribbean inspired meat and dairy free food. Going greener is delicious!

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) -  when aspiring writers can make a pledge to write 50k words of a novel in one month. It's as hard as it sounds. I've done NaNoWriMo for several years now, and never finished the word goal. This year I will attempt it again. There is a great website with forums and pep talks from famous writers to help participants along.

Friday night

Glasgow beer week starts tomorrow. Beer related events will be held throughout the city by brewers, pubs and restaurants.

Provanhall House, the oldest building in Glasgow and notoriously haunted, will be hosting a spooky lantern walk through the woods for families, followed by ghost stories at the house.

Saturday afternoon

Browse for graphic novels, back issues, games and DVDs at Glasgow's Comic and Toy Fair at Renfield St Stephen's Church. The fair will be running fro 11:00am to 4:00pm. Entry is free.

Saturday night

SWG3 will be hosting Day of the Dead Glesga - an evening of laying music, dancing, face painting and tequila to celebrate Mexico's Dia De Los Muertos.

Sunday afternoon

An exhibition at the People's Palace looks at the impact of Glasgow's most notorious housing scheme, the Red Road flats, which are due to be demolished soon.

Sunday night

1922 occult classic, Haxan, will be playing at the GFT at 8:00pm on Sunday. The film portrays satanic rituals, superstitions, and persecution of witches. The screening will feature live music.
