Hi, I'm Ildiko

Welcome to the Weekend Enthusiast! A collection of travel, lifestyle, restaurant reviews and home of the Edinburgh Enthusiast. 

What to do this weekend: 18-19 February


Glasgow Film Festival with ScotRail

The Glasgow Film Festival is in full swing and we are very excited to attend one of the Audience Award screenings - thanks to ScotRail, the official partner of this year's Film Fest. Mr Enthusiast is true chocolate lover, so we chose to watch The Chocolate Case. Thanks to the lovely ScotRail people we are fully prepared for a fun daytrip with Irn Bru and Tunnock's tea cakes to keep us going. The weather forecast is perfect cinema weather.

The Art of the Wine List

Meanwhile in Stockbridge, Edinburgh, Love Menu Art is having a weekend pop-up at the Good Brothers Wine Bar. They are open on both days from noon until 5pm. Find the Facebook event here.


RSA New Contemporaries

Say hello to emerging Scottish talents, the New Contemporaries at the Royal Scottish Academy on the Mound. The art exhibition is open between 18 February-15 March.

Instrmnt Sample Sale

Have you heard of the Glasgow-based watch brand, Instrmnt? They have a beautifully minimalistic store place in Glasgow's Trongate area and they happen to have  a sample sale this Saturday. Arrive early to avoid disappointment. Sign up for the Facebook event here.


Snowdrop Welly Walk

The Scottish Snowdrop Festival is still going strong. Put on your wellies and pop in to the Cambo Estate for a woodland winter walk. Meet at 10.30am.
If you don't have the chance to drive to Fife, the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh also has snowdrop walks and after the snowdrops you can warm up in the glasshouse.

Have a nice weekend!
