Asked how they liked to relax on a Friday night, three percent of people surveyed said they liked to go home and pull the duvet over their heads until Monday morning; five percent wanted to don their wellies and get filthy while one slightly scary bloke plumped for playing touch Frisbee with a goat he had befriended.
The rest wanted something good to eat; a laugh with their friends and a drink.
Nobody needs Big Deal’s help to hide under the duvet and we are having nothing to do with either wellies or goatboy so today’s Big Deal is designed for everyone else.
A collection of seven different bars, restaurants, a roller disco, karaoke pods and a comedy club, the newly opened Mansion House offers a cornucopia of chillaxing.
Today’s Big Deal kicks off with your choice from the Glasserie’s a la carte menu of Scottish delights. A funky spot with ceiling to floor windows, the Glasserie features dishes such as the corn-fed chicken breast stuffed with spicy haggis; the pan-roasted fillet of cod; a Thai green curry and the brasserie’s own burgers with all the trimmings.
Having tickled the taste buds, make tracks to the comedy club for a night of rib-splitting, funny bone-rattling mirth with the Jongleurs’ team of crack comedians.
The four strong line-up of the 90 minute show changes very Friday night but typical gagmeisters include Jane Godley, Des Clarke and Raymond Mearns.
Round off your night, or indeed prepare yourself for the rest of the weekend, with a cocktail in Kanaloa, the Mansion House’s tikki-themed VIP bar which features hula serving girls.
If you want to hang out with goatboy or pull on your wellies then that’s your affair. If you want to kickstart your weekend with a Friday night fling then today’s Big Deal is:
£18 for a main course from the a la carte menu in the Mansion House’s Glasserie Restaurant, a ticket for the Jongleurs show in the comedy club and an aftershow cocktail in the VIP bar Kanaloa; a 55% saving on the standard £40.50
