We will start in Milngavie where F Pizza has become Fullback Sports and Pizza Bar.

The Stewart Street venue promises to offer a new venue and name but the 'same top pizzas'.

Along with ten screens for all your sports viewing needs, Fullback Sports and Pizza Bar will be laying on a pool table, weekly quiz, a regular open mic night and a limitless wings promotion.

Moving into Glasgow, we note that hot on the heels of Gyros launching on Byres Road, Yeros is taking shape in Finnieston.

Say Yammas to Yeros!

We would love to tell you more. A date and location would be a start for example but, at the time of writing, their instagram page is being very coy.

Still, if you like a Greek take on kebabs then Yeros is about to widen your options. More info as we get it.

Sticking with the whole not-much-info-to-go-on vibe, Civerino's pizza operation is looking to expand out West and open not one but two new places in Glasgow plus a summer pop-up.

Already operating from four Edinburgh venues, their wood-fired pizza slices should soon be available on the other side of the M8.

And when we know exactly where they will be located, we will tell you here. Main pic, borrowed from their Facebook page, shows range of goodies from Civerino's Edinburgh.

Hauf and hauf

We are on much firmer ground with The Mash Up, a new beer and whisky festival taking place at Holyrood Distillery in Edinburgh over three days - 3-5 June 2022.

Breweries taking part include Stewart Brewing, Barney's, Pilot, Campervan and Newbarn while the distillers involved include The Clydeside Distillery, Isle of Raasay, Wemyss Malts, Kilchoman and, of course, Holyrood Distillery.

Billed as 'Edinburgh's first hauf n hauf' festival, standard tickets cost £35 and will get visitors entry to the festival for a three hour slot, two half pints, a dram plus the opportunity to sample from the exhibitors.

Pizza Geeks will be knocking out their  Neapolitan style pizza in the courtyard and there will be live DJs.

The Holyrood Distillery and surrounding area sit on what was once known as Edinburgh's Charmed Circle, an abundant supply of underground water supplies that fed the city's once enormous brewing industry.

There is a nice look at the history of brewing in Edinburgh here.
