Although COVID restrictions are finally lifting this month, the official advice for this Summer is to stay local where possible. Of course, for us Weegies that’s never anything we’d complain about (well, except for the weather!).
If you’re planning on staying put, there’s no need to feel like you’re missing out! There’s still tons to see and do in our city that will keep you entertained. We’ve pulled together a short list of 5 local businesses in Glasgow that we have worked with who we think could help you make the most out of your Summer at home.
For the foodies who want to spice up their night in
Can’t find a table at your favourite restaurant for the next couple of weeks? Getting too familiar with your local Deliveroo driver? Have you tried HelloFresh and almost said goodbye to your sanity? Well, Boho Taco is here to satisfy your cravings in an easy and affordable way!
Just a few months old, Boho Taco is perhaps one of the best kept secrets in the Glasgow food scene. A different take on the meal-kit delivery service, the folks at Boho Taco prepare your order with quality, fresh ingredients and make your accompaniments before it’s all sent to you. The only thing you need to do is heat it up as per the instructions!
No more lukewarm fillings or torn tortillas! With a variety of meat, veggie and vegan options, there really is something for everyone – any allergens can be accounted for too with a simple note upon order.

Mrs Jones Cakes
For the perfect centrepiece of your next big event
From 19th July, weddings will be able to have 200 people in attendance. That’s great news for couples who have been set back in their plans for their big day due to COVID. That news is perhaps a little less welcome for those who were hoping they’d be able to sneak an extra slice of wedding cake!
To accommodate, couples may be on the lookout for an expert wedding cake maker and decorator who has years of experience catering to large-scale celebrations. Enter Mrs Jones Cakes!
Sheila Jones of Mrs Jones Cakes has been catering to a range of occasions for years, even running cake classes out of her own kitchen and posting recipe tutorials online. Her cake classes are on hold for the time being, but her recipe tutorials are perfect for anyone looking for a bit of guidance before undertaking an afternoon of baking. She’ll at least make sure you don’t end up with egg on your face!
