Bored in Glasgow? Impossible!

As usual, there's so much to do in Glasgow this weekend, you'll have to clone yourself a few times to do it all.

Thursday night

ReDress, Glasgow's high end consignment shop, will be hosting a Christmas shopping party from 5:00 to 9:00pm. Celebrate designer style with 10% off purchases and a glass of bubbly. That perfect Christmas night out dress is waiting for you. (EDIT: oops! This event is next Thursday! I've been sick, so I'll just say my brain is soup at the moment!)

Friday night

Parma Vintage will be having a pop up shop in Princes Square all weekend. Visit the launch part on Friday evening (5:00 to 7:00pm) for music, drinks, cupcakes, a goody bag, and 20% off.

The GFT will be showing Spaghetti Western spoof Lust in the Dust. Camp fun starring Divine. The showing will be introduced by Guillotina Munter, promoter of MENERGY, Scotland's only drag disco.

Saturday afternoon

Ian Rankin will be signing copies of his new Rebus novel, Saints of the Shadow Bible, at the Waterstone's on Sauchiehall Street. The signing starts at 12:00pm, but the store is advising people come early to avoid disappointment.

See photographs of a very different Glasgow, from 1974 to 1978, by photographer Hugh Hood. These photos were thought to be lost, but the negatives were found in his brother's home in 2006. There will be an artist talk on Saturday at 3:00pm. The exhibition will will be held in the Foyer of Trongate 103.

The Byres Road Makers Market features work by local crafters, artists and designers. Saturday's market, which starts at 11:00am at the Hillhead Library, is the last one of 2013. The Market will return in February next year.

Saturday night

Menergy can make a second appearance in your weekend at the Glasgay! closing party - which will also be Menergy's 4th birthday party. Raja, winner of season 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race will be there. The disco will be at Axm Glasgow.

For something less high octane and more student oriented, check out DJ Greenman and his mix of Reggae, Dub and Hip-Hop at Flat 01.

Sunday afternoon

Video installation House Style at the Tramway will be presenting new work inspired by BFI archive films, originally designed to present a British notion of modernity to Asian cinema audiences. The exhibition investigates 'the ways in which cultural identity, status and style can be understood through design, industry and making'.

Sunday night
Take it easy and let someone else cook for you. Have a meal at arguably the best East Asian restaurant in Glasgow - Asia Style. Salt and pepper tofu, coconut rice and ginger and garlic fine bean please!
