Thursday Nights in Glasgow

The weekend is so close you can almost taste it. What the heck, why not throw caution to the wind and get the weekend started early in some of Glasgow's best bars? After all, Thursday is the new Friday. Whether you make like an undergrad and go dancing at a banging student night or make like a popstar and head out for some karaoke, whether you head to the South Side or the West End, always remember; no one gets any work done on Fridays any way.
