    things to do on a night in edinburgh?

    apart from get drunk in pubs/clubs (intend to do that at some point still).

    most theatre etc seem to have their latest showings at 7.30pm'ish. I'm looking at 8.30pm onwards. This weekend in particular.

    any thoughts?

    I have not been, but if you're into Theatre then I hear good things about the Royal Lyceum Theatre: http://www.lyceum.org.uk/

    cheers guys. like the theatre a lot carl, but like i say their last shows are at 7.45 and i'm looking at 8.30 onwards.

    the comedy club ideas are great! I see the stand's shows start at about 8.30-9. so spot on.

    I'm taking the gf and we are into most things really. Have all the main museums/galleries on in the schedule. also the castle/palace etc. Have prebooked a ghost tour plus dungeons tickets. Have already booked in at the witchery and cosmo restaurants on a coulple of the nights. Will spend at least one night just going round the bars/clubs etc.

    so... am looking for something a bit different to fill up the evenings after the couple of meals really. artsy/comedy/theatrical/technological... all things welcome.

    p.s anyone know if anyone of the following are any good? :

    Alastair Barrie, John Gillick , Paul Pirie and Colum O’Regan. Hosted by Bruce Devlin..

    they seem to be on at 'the stand'

    If the stand in Edinburgh is anything like the Glasgow one (which I imagine it is) then it will be a great night.
