Black T will introduce all-black Mercedes Viano cars in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, collecting folk (and up to three of their pals) and taking them on their journey for free. Summoned on Twitter using the hashtag #BlackTFriday, the over-18 passengers won’t only be treated to a chauffeur service; chilled Black T will also await them when they step into the vehicle.

On the site of Pivo Pivo (RIP) is a new Irish bar boasting a confessional (!), Guinness themed toilets and eleven draft beers including Chieftain IPA from Franciscan Wells – we first tasted this at Craft Beer Rising, not a bad beer.

Seven screens for sport and pizzas, burgers and hot dogs to keep the belly fed.  We’ll be checking this one out soon.
