Glasgow To Do List

Is it just my imagination or does it feel like Glasgow is the coolest place on earth this year? With amazing events like Radio One’s Big Weekend and The MTV music awards coming to town this year for the music lovers.  For sports fans we have the much anticipated Commonwealth Games happening in the summer, The Ryder Cup close by in a few months and just announced this week we’re even getting the BBC SPOTY awards in December.  It is going to be a magical year for our fabulous city and I am excited to be apart of it.

So what do we need for the millions of people flocking to our fair city? A To Do List of course, okay I won’t lie I just really enjoy making lists but who knows you ‘weegies may even fancy trying to make your way through a few of these too.

If you live in Glasgow and this City is not one of the great loves of your life..your doing life wrong! Enjoy your city it’s Totes Amazeballs!!
