Dog walk of the week

 

Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline

 

 

“Beautiful, big, interesting, diverse and dog friendly a great place to visit. Its a wonderful park with formal Victorian flower gardens, ponds and parkland, Japanese almost rain forest style garden leading to the glen….and the ruins of the monastery viewed above the sunken riverside glen walk is quite magical on a summers day. Well done to all who are involved in managing this lovely park.”

“The Novar Bar is a traditional local bar based in Kirkcaldy.
 
When it comes to great drink, food and a lively friendly pub, this is the place to be!
 
We take pride in our food, that’s why we’ve been working with our chef’s not only to bring you a fresh menu but great prices too.
 
With our food made from the finest ingredients we are sure to tempt the whole family, whatever the taste buds maybe. Whether you fancy our traditional homemade Steak Pie to our Spicy Cajun Chicken there is always something to try at Novar Bar.
 
It doesn’t stop there! Novar bar would not be complete without large plasma screens to keep the atmosphere lively with live sports in the bar every day.”

Open Minded Skeptics, The Windsor Hotel, Kirkcaldy.

“Open Minded Skeptics hit the stage at the Windsor Hotel as part of the Scottish leg of the tour. Thomas Koupa Couper himself, lead singer of the band described them as:
 
“4 Piece metal rap band, bring beefy riffs, crashing drums and Scottish twists, mix that up with a hate for corrupt politicians and you have O.M.S!! Bringing power back to the people!”
 
However the Skeptics are more than that. Thomas brings power through his vocals and a stage presence that has to be seen to be believed. The whole band as a collective have a huge sound and will defiantly be going places in 2017 and beyond. Having been able to acquire one of the dates on the tour for us at Over The Bridge we are very happy with. We believe these group of Skeptics have something and are happy to give them a stage to show it.

 
Heading to the Windsor to support them will be:
 
Breeding Indium
Viens Of Carbide
Let’s Play God
Kyber
 
Door charge on the fantastic night is £5. This fantastic night of metal is one surely not to be missed for the area. Get along early to support all bands on the bill and show these bands a kirkcaldy metal night is the place to be.”
