I can't fathom the alcohol decision in the slightest. Part of me wonders if the decision was made outwith the company and forced on it given its severity. I've already seen some ridiculous security...

Don't worry about getting in to Glasgow at 7. It's a late night kind of city - you'll find plenty restaurants taking bookings up until 10 or even later.
