Beverley Lyons: Looks like Shania Twain made it after visit to Glasgow bar
SHANIA TWAIN might have had dinner at Buck’s chicken restaurant but she admitted to me that she didn’t eat any birds on the night - because she’s a vegetarian.

Shania checked into her City Centre hotel around 7pm on Monday along with her five guitars and crew ahead of their two-night run at the SSE Hydrro.
She had snuck through a side door at her hotel and I actually thought initially she’d gone to bed – maybe 'cause she was still on transatlantic time.
But then, a little tipster told me she’d gone for some dinner at Buck’s Bar and was still there.
I ran and after a wee bit of waiting around I spoke to her as she walked outside with her crew.
She was a lovely gal, so down to Earth.
She told me she’d just been in Glasgow two hours and that she hadn’t had a chance to explore but was looking forward to spending the next four days here.
When I asked her how her chicken dinner was, and admitted I thought she was veggie, she laughed. “Yes, most of us are vegetarian, but there was still plenty for us to enjoy.”
I have it on good authority that the much impressed Shania enjoyed vegan option The Umami Tsunami – crispy tofu with a miso mushroom sauce, and salad in honey lime dressing.
The singer also drank a couple glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and her pals enjoyed some pints of Drygate Gladeye IPA each.
The rest of the party also indulged in Thai Style Hot Wings and Halloumi Nuggets with 25 ingredient BBQ dip.
A spokesperson for the bar said later: “Funny thing is that she was served by our Canadian waitress, Sadie.
As Shania was leaving, Sadie turned round to her manager and said ‘that woman looks a bit like Shania Twain. No-one in the place recognised her.”
After Shania posted up a picture of her toilet trip with the signs reading Cocks for men and Hens for women, some cheeky fans wondered if she’d change the name of her famous song to “Cock, I feel like a Hen.”
Seeing her standing outside the loos, another joked: “Looks like she made it.”
