Those of you who’ve used the Renfrewshire Pubs website in the past will have noticed some pretty big changes to the look of it in recent weeks. The Pubs project started off as a fairly small idea aimed at hopefully helping raise awareness of some of the many events taking place across pubs and bars in Renfrewshire.
However, it quickly grew to a point where we had over 300 Facebook fans and a significant amount of traffic on the site from people searching Google for information on various pubs. So, we decided to give the site and project a proper identity, hopefully encouraging more of those visitors to find out more about the pubs and, ultimately, go along to some of the many events that are on.
So, thanks to all those who follow and use the site so far!
You’ll notice we now have an “Upcoming Events” displayed across all pages of the site. We intend populating this with everything from weekly karaoke nights to live music acts and random one off events, so if you know of something not listed, let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A Pretty Big Boxing Match
Whether you’re a fan of boxing or not, there is no getting away from the hype surrounding this weekends David Haye V Wladimir Klitschko fight. We appreciate not everyone will want to watch it, but we have heard there are some pubs showing it across Renfrewshire. If you go along, enjoy! So far we know of The Bankhouse, The Craig Dhu and Paddy Malarkys in Paisley, along with The Viscount in Renfrew.
A Barbeoke ?!?
We’re assuming that this event is as the name suggests … a mixture between Barbeque and Karaoke. Sounds like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon! We caught a mention of it on the Facebook page of The Bankhouse earlier. It sounds like good fun, so please send in some photos if you go along – we’ll upload to Facebook and you can tag yourself!
