1 Who would be your ideal weekend companion and why? Someone who is funny and has an interesting view of life – like the brilliant Irish comedian Dara O’Briain.
2 Where would you take them and why? We’d go for a walk to one of the East Lothian beaches, because they’re the perfect getaway close to town.
3 Where would you go for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I would combine breakfast and lunch at Earthy Foods on Ratcliffe Terrace. For dinner we’d head to the Outsider on George IV Bridge – great views of castle, especially at night.
4 What item would you not be without? For a weekend I’m afraid I wouldn’t be too far away from my iPad.
5 How would your perfect weekend finish? With some live music and a drink with my friends at a relaxed venue like the Shore Bar in Leith.
