1. One last thing: Here's our #STVmostread across Scotland today

    It's time to say goodnight folks, but I'll leave you with the best read stories from across Scotland including the one about the Scotsman who flew over the Mound at the Red Bull Hill Chasers cycling event.

  2. Nibbles and tipples at Juniper

    Plus enjoy fantastic views of Edinburgh Castle. Pay £10 instead of £21 for six delicious bar nibbles to share between two plus a cocktail each from the cocktail menu at Juniper, on Princes Street. That's a 52 per cent saving. Enjoy.

  3. Hooray you can now get on your way, soon

    After several tedious hours of crawling traffic things should clear up a bit as northbound lanes over the Forth Road Bridge are expected to re-open in the next quarter of an hour. The lanes were reduced to one after a fuel spill earlier today, causing chaos on the roads.

    Hang in there if you're still stuck in traffic, you'll be home soon.

    Some good news at last - we are now in the process of uplifting cones; expect both northbound lanes open in about 15 minutes

  5. From Hidden Door to the outdoors

    There's no slowing down for artist Karen Gabbitas, who contributed to Hidden Door at the Market Street vaults this month. She's running a new Walk Slow, Pedal Fast event on April 26, which is part of the John Muir Festival.

    It will involve taking a mindful walk to a bike-powered installation where people can pedal to generate a film screening. Check out the details in the tweet.

  6. Remember when 007 opened Edinburgh's first cinema bar

    It was 1963 and his latest flick From Russia With Love had just exploded onto the silver screen, but that didn't stop Sean Connery from returning to his neighbourhood and opening Cameo Cinema's bar.

    Goldfinger, which was shot a few weeks after the bar opening, will be screened this Friday as part of the cinema's ongoing centenary celebrations. Dress up in your finery and have a Martini toast - shaken, obviously.

  13. Coming back from the dead at Electric Circus

    American musician Simone Felice was pronounced clinically dead for several minutes after suffering a brain aneurysm at the age of 12. Two year's later he had formed his first band after learning to write and read again. You can hear his tunes tonight at Electric Circus from 7pm.

    He'll be joined by Cara Mitchell Music and Callum Beattie. Seen as Callum, 23, is a local lad I thought it would be nice to share his latest single.

    His shows have sold out every year since 2006 and he's only doing 12 performances this August, so you better get in quick for tickets to Andrew Maxwell's Hubble Bubble show. There's still two-for-one tickets available.

    Also, just a friendly tip, you can bookmark events on the Fringe website so you can keep track of all the events you want to see. Ideal.
